Thread: Confluence Loot - Per Character Daily Cap

  1. Default

    Although I do not remember the exact time for the change. I do remember an earlier nerf when my gem count went down to about 50 gems a hunt. Usually it was 80 - 100 per hunt. I also remember several months ago I was entering the confluence and not losing any outside spells (that was really nice). After that was fixed was when I noticed the hour or so of really great hunting and then nothing. But I could be wrong



    Can someone reduce this to flash card form so I can understand this?

    Happy farming, they totally drop! --Estilid, probably

    GSIV is the only game I know where loot gets worse the higher the lvl you get.

    It's like you're punished for spending years in the game.

    The treasure system of "this place has been hunted too much so now it's broke" isn't really a fair one. If I come into an area after an MA party, I'm actively being punished for that person hunting there as well. Now factor in that the hunting areas are pretty small and universally if one spot is being hunted, it's being over hunted and because of that, you now get less loot than the person(s) before you.

    Feels bad, man. Feels... bad.

    It's not just the confluence it's on everything, it looks like you get significant diminishing returns on loot if you hunt longer than 15 minutes regardless of hunting pressure or login rewards. As far as I can tell the cap resets after you've been resting or logged out of the game for x amount of minutes, it seems like it's between 15-30 mins worth of rest for the cap to be removed. It's been like this for at least two months I noticed the difference after doing back to back bounties then switching character for a find the heirloom and the treasure significantly shot up.

    For me, Confluence will turn to shit, I'll go to Rift, loot is fine there, I'll go afk a couple hours, go back to Confluence, it's still trash and stays trash until the next day, Rift is still fine, etc.
