Tungsten & Titanium The Forgotten Metals

Post by Haddassah » Mon Jul 23, 2018 8:04 am

I was scrolling through the online wiki and I saw these two metals in the smithing section. No one mentions them in game when talking about sword paths. After trying to farm up Tung with a couple of alts running the labyrinth killing everything... I haven't gotten one to drop. Are they enabled in the game? If they are still in the game I think it would be super cool to have them be a viable option instead of just making 3-4 Viz/Elat blades after Chit/Mal and questing for Azreal.

Maybe we could up their drop rate just a tad? I think someone said it takes 50mins to an 1hour to complete the Azreal quest and you do it with 4-5 characters so 5 Azreal(plus the dust) an hour. Maybe a drop rate just south of that but not too much. That would make them viable stepping stones after Mal/Chit instead of going back and making "questing" blades.

Just a thought and I think it would be a simple enough thing to give more content/options with little coding work. :D

Did you try killing in the basement? the drop rate is much improved there.

Yep, down there for over an hour today and no ingots dropped. I killed everything in my path, from bats to Silver bats and Lizard Men. Maybe this belongs in the bug report section?

Roger that! Further testing will continue after I gain enough dodge to not die to those Bunnies! :P

** Also a side thought after chatting with some folks in game. Maybe the Azreal quest is too easy. What if it gave Tungsten or Titanium instead of Azreal?" Then Azreal would be dropped in the Lab3 instead. **

Was that a change?

The wiki has had tungsten listed as lab 1 and titanium listed as lab 2 for at least as long as I've been on this server.

So for clarity, because I'm going to fix what it says in the wiki, both tungsten AND titanium can ONLY drop in the deep lab or the lab basement?

I can now kill in Lab3. I got a Gold dust drop before I got a metal ingot drop down in Lab3. Can someone check if they even have a drop rate turned on? And maybe...think about upping it? :D

Edit: 2 glowing gold dust and zero ingots.

gold dust is more common for the smiths in your team. since they have no value other then to make td more difficult to advance farther.

How much time have you spent down there/ estimate of how many mobs you’ve killed with no metal drops. It seems to me the grind should be getting to the appropriate levels to get to the basement. Not in the basement. Where’s the reward for the time just to get there. I’m not even close to the lab yet let alone the basement and I’m feeling zero motivation to progress if there is little to no reward for efforts. It’s not about making drop rates progressively lower the farther in the game you go. That’s just dumb and forcing players to spend exponentially more and more time just to go one more step further is a poor system of reward. Also what “team” are you referring to iresh

team a group of players or avatars that help in your advancement.since most people have a mage and a smith that makes a team. in fact them drops in basement. are 3 times better then lab 2. This is the first report on the drop rate there of the tungsten and titanium. and if everyone thinks they are too low we will increase them. The idea here was to add content that was mentioned in the source Everyone was ecstatic that new areas and monsters are being added to aid in leveling there avatars further.

The principle is that it's better to start hard and make it easier then to start too easy and have to nerf later.

Drop rates are easily tweaked.

On that note, I started skipping Vorpals and killing as fast as I could. I now have One Tung and One Titanium over 2 1/2 hours. That makes Az more time effective still. Is it a 50/50 chance on which drops IF you get a ingot drop?

Oh and +3 more gold dust.

It seems they aren’t so easily tweaked when the community is complaining about it.
