Hello,

I would like to suggest updating the drop tables of older content (for example, dungeons) and field bosses to drop better items relative to the content's difficulty. A lot of dungeons don't drop anything too notable that would make running it worthwhile, and adding even one rare item to the drop table of those dungeons would make them more worthwhile to run. A lot of field bosses, excluding major ones like dragons, drop lackluster items as well. Adding even a single rare item to their drop table would make field boss hunting more appealing.

I'm interested to know what the community thinks!

I agree completely! Which is why I worded the question "Should older content receive better drops depending on its difficulty to complete?"

Thanks!

I also think updating the rewards from exploration chests would be nice too. Again, nothing major since it's easier content, but maybe some higher grade / full recovery potions or a very low chance of a higher-tier useful / fashion item. I don't know specifically what to put on each drop table, but the rewards should be tied to the difficulty, and exploration chests aren't difficult - just time consuming (although fun IMO).

Almost every dungeon has it's own set of items layed out. It is matter of which dungeon to pick to suit your current need. Mabi's incompetent drop table exists there for a reason.

But having said that, the general drop table is not very suited to smaller player base like us. It does get bit more problematic since GMs cannot change every single drop rates for each reward chests in the older content.

Back to the original question, I believe older content could be left as it is, or slight few tweaks to create a bridge for newer player base. What could be better is increase drop or create higher chance of reward for the new/upcoming contents since it simulates more party plays in comparison to the older ones.

I agree that there are some useful items in dungeons, specifically in the hard mode / advanced versions like Colin Plate Armor. However, I think in general that there aren't enough 'good' items available in dungeons to keep players running them compared to higher EXP / Gold rewards from shadow or theater missions.

I'm not advocating for a massive 'power creep' to rewards. Just enough to make it worth going back and replaying through the older dungeon content if people want to. New content is great and it's awesome that people are releasing it for free to this private server, but I also think older content should be kept relevant to a degree as well - otherwise it becomes kind of like the live version of Mabi where there's no reason to run older stuff, and the newer content always outclasses older content.

Thanks for the input.

Hi,

My IGN is Radiance. I like shiny things and good-hearted people.

Add me if you need a friend! Maybe we can do a party quest or run a dungeon / mission sometime.

Thank you for this! The extended view distance is amazing, and the text is a little bit easier to read than the default.

Some new skillbooks for Composing and Musical Knowledge were just made available from older dungeon drops.

Awesome! Is there any chance you can let us know from which dungeon(s) they drop from, or will that be a mystery for the community to solve?
