Bad drop ratings for death school

Ok, I have been in the Science Center for about a week on my Death wizard, mostly because of the bad drop ratings, I am currently on a quest where I have to collect 2 of an item and I ended up killing at least 10-12 enemies before i got one. This is not just for that quest, this happens for every single collecting quest I do on my death wizard . While I struggle with collecting quests on my Death wizard, my Balance wizard can easily collect all items in about 2 groups. And this has always been the case since level 1 on him, as getting no drops was the case since level 1 on my Death wizard. KI, please fix this, it is really annoying having to kill the same thing for an hour+ for one quest, on one wizard while the other one gets it in about 30 minutes. Please make it equal so the game can be more fun and I can get out more to help some of my friends.

it all depends on luck it has nothing to do with death or any school for that matter it may seem like it but it is not. besides your not going to finish this game overnight. take your time. and try doing it with multiple people so you get 4 enemies at a time.

I have never had good luck with these long collects no matter what wizard I am playing but I think the worse was Water Matrons that I spent all afternoon and into the evening trying to collect. I realize it prevents you from just breezing though the game but I also believe that sometimes you get stuck in no collect mode. Now when I can not collect in a reasonable amount of time I switch realms, go do another quest or just plain quit for a while and come back to it. I get a little bored fighting the same thing over and over again and worse is you face some of these things several times in that area for different quests.

It's all luck. I've had quests before where I have to get like three of ont thing and I ended up defeating like 30-35 monsters. Then other times I only have to defeat like 4-5.
