Well, its necro thread but yea, some places are better than others to farm. Still i sense it is a bit low, maybe under 1% (bet for 0.5% chance to drop) wich its kinda low, will appreciate something near to 1%

How come? They're even spotlighted now so you get 2x the spawn amount, including Verus.
Plus, with the new +XP/Drops boost, you could actually farm for tokens while grinding for xp with the current scenario.

Monster Tokens' drop rates aren't affected by server drops mod or gum effects iirc.

It's like equipping an invisible Mimic Card that had the item & chance modified for monster tokens instead.

It does feel like the current rates feel lower than usual tho

30 minutes in high TI picked up 50+ tokens without greeding. Practically free BMx3 uptime.

I wonder if the poison spores in Gene job change room is a good location to farm monster tokens, the mob spawn is super fast and they do seem to drop normal items.

We went through all of this months ago when monster token event happened. The server was shutdown for a short while while the drop rate was barely increases a fraction of a percent, but I kept pming the mods to tell them and show that I had killed so many monsters with few tokens to show. I literally killed over 1000 monsters, not humanoids, and didnt even get 30 tokens in over an hour and a half. Thats fly winging around too. Then there is the endless theft of items before a person can pick them up by bots, afk players and people that are just thieving jerks. The greed skill is too broken to continue as it is. Even now people asked if tokens can be auto dropped into inventory after killing monsters, but it doesnt happen. So combined with the thieving rate, the low drop rate and needing 50 for a low chance once per day with items that are not even account bound, it just seems like another half effort event. I barely get a token per few hundred monsters killed before one drops or drops and is greeded by some jerk that didnt make the kill. Fed up with this. Things were never this bad and players were never so neglected in the pre warp portal days.
 

Sunken ship is the best place to farm

ITs one of the most accessible places because one doesnt need to be a high level to go there, but the endless sped up and fly winging cart pullers greeding everywhere makes it pointless much of the time. 2 hours went by and I couldnt even get to 40 even if the tokens were not being stolen left and right from me. Culvert seems better since theres no humanoids there. ^^

The monster token rate is lower than the old one. They must increase it to make the servers busy and players will play again.

so how often do you guys want these tokens to drop? one per 5 kills? one per 10 kills? one per 1 kill? I barely hunted for them and got at least 5+ in 5 minutes. Everything shouldn't just be handed to us on a silver platter.

Make the drop chance 20% but each token has a chance of killing the player when looted

To answer the last few questions: firstly, the luck is not the same for everyone, such as hunting in areas with many thieving "greed" skill users. Secondly, even without those thieves, there have been times when hundreds of monsters have been killed, with less than 10 tokens to show for it. Even after over 1000 monsters killed last time, I didnt even get to 40. The rate never had to be anything seemingly " free", but a slight increase would be cool. As for the ore rate,I agree its somewhat like normal ores, though I had bad luck even getting to +6 a few times. It would just be nice if the attempt could be more than just once a day. Theres not even a timer to keep track of when it can be done again. Account bound instead of character bound would be great too along with auto pickup. Its the little things that count.

Dropping into inventory was not a good suggestion. If they did it I'd lmao.
