    Love the update for DSS. Half the time I forgot to do the quest and now ive dropped about 10-12 cuts and 10+ rough. Thanks for the awesome update!

  • DonKill

    Okay Grazie exst ;)

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    I already answered you, the drop is visible ingame, click on the ? near the monster's name to know which one drops what

  • DonKill

    Oh okay.. but also the monsters of metin 70 will drop cor? ( i mean in demon tower )

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    As we said the drop is optimazed to grow as your level grow, so don't expect to over farm at 35

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    The drops are visible ingame, make a tour of the map and analize all monster's drop information

  • DonKill

    At lv 35 where can i go to farm some alchemy?

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    Consider that boss and runs still doesn't have the drop active, yet

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    For those who doesn't play the game actively but just logged to do the quest, is obviously lower, but for the others is higher

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    Considering that over 700 are Cut drops, which is worth like 5 Rough, the drop rate is more than doubled

  • [CoMa]Shadow

    The amount of stones gained yesterday using the old quest, were little above 4300. Today, not even 18 hours later, 7389 drops from monsters.

  • xTelsam

    yeah net gain feels a lot less than before the update

  • A.O.S

    1 every 30 mins for me :o, i need to play 5 hrs a day to get what i used to get now xD

  • DonKill

  • Hey guys,


    I was wondering if there is an increse of failure to read a Skill Book when you get to higher ability levels (M2, M3 .... M9)?


    Is it worth to buy Hermit's Advice for around 12kk to read the Skill Books that cost around 1,5kk for example?
    When there is a smaller success rate of reading the Skill Book at higher levels it would be better to use Hermit's Advice at some point I guess...


    Maybe you can also give me an advice like "use it from M5 to P since you would pay more for the SBs" etc. :)


    Thanks in advance!

  • Ok so my calculation would be as followed:


    Without Hermit's Advice:
    If on average every third book fails that would mean that I have to read around 150 books (55x3).
    In my case - you guessed it - that would mean 1,5kk for blade multiplied with 150 = 225kk.


    With Hermit's Advice:
    If i calculate with a bit of luck it would mean that I should need only around 55 SBs for 1,5kk each.
    If I use Hermit's for every SB that costs 4,2kk on average that would mean 55 x (1,5+4,2) = 313,5kk.


    I know this is a very rough calculation, but do you think that makes sence?
    For now I think I should go without Hermit's Advice since I would save around 88kk on average :)


    What do you think about this?

  • well the main Point to go with hermits is that you save alot of time so yeah in my opinion hermits are worth to use definetly

  • Percentages are not that easy. In theory if you throw a coin 10 times you have 50% chance that Head comes out, but you may throw it 10 times and get 10 times Tail.


    Besides even if we assume that you will save 88 milions golds, you are not considering the days invested. With hermits, is 55 days garanteed, with the other method, it may become 150.


    Anyway this year Easter will come sooner so your dilemma might not be a problem after all :)

  • Alright I got your point. I think I will save some gold to buy Hermits since 150 days seems quite a lot^^
    Thanks for all your help :)
