Post Lower Jungle drop rates
Wow, why the hell do you make content drop so much stuff. It's going to be worthless so fast now.

I really dont care if the lockout was increased to a week, which is what it should be to start off, there is just too much stuff dropping from a lot of zones.

And you know the funny part? The common "response" I get from devmins is "the loot was adjusted accordingly to the lockout" but there is a lot of content that has not been balanced that way. It only seems the "worthwhile" zones have been beefed because carebear reasons.

And it drops like that specifically because it's T13 team content.

It's like saying UZ content is useless because I am t20.

Mid tier content is just as good and important as end game content, and should be balanced.

I as telling myself i needed some t12-13 ships to level some alts. I thought I would have to farm the zone for a few weeks. I only needed 2 runs and i had all i needed for all the alts i wanted to make. It's just silly

Jungle was strengthened so that you couldn't blitzkrieg the place with one lone T12 ship. A true T12 player would actually need a 3-5 man squad of other T12 players. The bosses were given scripts and such to make them a more challenging and fun fight. Their loot was massively upped so everyone didn't feel left out.

But if you're rolling through with a T16 ship, you can do so much damage (without missiles OR fighters or even SLAVES) to ignore the scripts or bug them out, such as one shotting them as a seer.

Jungle Armada Crests and a few select pieces of gear have use in higher tech players, as incentive for people to come back and run the lockout despite being higher level than the zone, or to pay other lower level members for their loot.

1) why the hell was jungle lockout increased to a week, that is one of the best mid tier leveling zones for new players. Now it cannot be hard ground. The lockout on jungle should be removed entirely. good grief.

2) Counter Proposal: i have suggessted removing or decreasing the garbage (IE everything that is not a JAC) from the general drops tables. Would that be acceptable to you reyj?

The lockout is on the *bosses*. Are you seriously trying to camp the bosses for experience?

I'm pretty certain the lockouts on Jungle bosses aren't a week long.

Could I suggest some sort of trade-in option for the blueprints?

Relevant to this topic, the increased loot drop in Arctia and Vulcan are even more extreme, considering how few unique items each boss can drop. Getting 3 Rime Shield Transferences from Lord Borean or 3 Magmarar Platings in one kill is quite common.

You're soloing a zone meant for Tech 10-14 players with a Tech 22 ship and complaining about getting tons of loot?

If you were to go in there with an actual squad of at level players it wouldn't be as easy and you would need to split the loot... So I don't see why it's not acceptable.
