Im so tired of seeing that message every time i do a quest where i have to collect items.

For example: The bark collect from those trees on the floating land took me 30 TRIES to collect three bark. And now in the sience center where i have to collect three cogs from steam wincers: Well i defeated 20 of them so far and i only collect 2 OF THEM.

Please KI raise the drop rates!

Sometimes it only works if you fight them where they are labeled on the map.

I completly agree. I understand that KI wants to raise the drop rates with each world to increase difficulty... but this is INSANE! What I think they should do, is create an exilir that increases drop rates for sale in the Crown Shop. It would solve everything!

An elixir would not solve this problem!

It will create much more argues! It will have none crown players keep asking and asking for the elixir. What we need to do is accept the fact and work as hard as you can. It will create more teamwork if we don't do anything about this matter. It will make you a stronger player. It will help you realize that you do need help at times!

It is becoming pretty exhausting fighting crustacean waverunners, the ice dudes with 1700 health. Oh my goodness they are so vicious! Starting with 3 power pips they only hit with kraken frostzilla and frost bit spells. It's a wonderful challenge but truly exhausting. Fought 18 and only have 2 of 3 algae pieces. Too difficult to have such a low drop rate. I was knocked out 4 times in two fights yesterday.

I too am tired of fighting so many enemies for just a few items. KI corrected this problem in Dragonspyre. They should also do the same for Celestia. Its very tedious and monotonous. It seems they do this for every new world. Come on. Allow us to get the items quickly and move on.

It does get tiresome. To make it more efficient, BWildheart has a guide to stacking collections at Wizard Central. What that means is if you defeat something, it could be collected for more than one quest and if you did not collect for one quest, perhaps you collected something for another quest. It makes going through Celestia faster and more fun.

I totally agree with you! I absolutely HATE fighting CL ice guys! They not only have insane health, but they cast tower shields very frequently, which annoys me half to death. Plus they shouldn't be casting Icezilla and Ice Kraken. This makes them have not only the most defenses, but the most attack capability as well. Please KI eliminate their use of storm spells!

That happens to me too! Sometimes, if you do it with a friend in a long battle, you get the drops quicker!

I really feel bad for you as it happens to me very frequently. One instance is when I was trying to collect weapons in stormriven to figure out it was a side quest. With this quest I spent about a whole week trying to get one of the three weapons I needed. I really do think Kingsisle has taken it too far with the drop rates in Celestia. PLEASE Kingsisle make the drop rate in Celestia easier

That same bug on that same quest (the trees' bark) is happening to me at this moment! I am ice, so it is very hard to defeat them! My ice specialty of 3,000 health isn't helping! How do I fix this?! Help! :(

I found that if you defeat them alone or work with a group and deliver the final blow, that you are more likely to collect the item your looking for.

That isn't entirely true, because if your friend defeats the monsters, he or she will either get the thing that they are collecting with you (like if you are on the same quest) or neither of you will get anything at all (if only you have the quest.) However, if you defeat a certain amount of them, then there is a chance of you getting the amount that you defeated. Actually, I am going to try that now. :D Wish me luck, and I hope that this helped.

The more enemies you fight the increased chance you have of getting the item you are looking for (quest or drop items). So the more friends you bring with you, is always better than going alone. All group members can receive four collectibles each, instead of a maximum of two, if you were fighting alone. The random generator can also give the goal complete to one person while others receive nothing. It is really random and there is no trick to get an increased chance of drops. Wizards do not "share the loot" to speak. Each person gets a random roll for each enemy they fight. So if you fighting four you get four random rolls, versus the normal two rolls by yourself.

I Am with you on this one. I have this quest where I have to collect 3 algae so I can get to the stellarium,(sp?)but I have defeated them 10 times and I have not collcted one piece of algae. I'm not sure about everyone else but I am getting really frustuated with this. Good luck to everyone with a collect quest.

Its just downright rediculous. How developers think this makes the game fun is mind-boggling. I finally made it to celestia and it is everything but fun. The world looks nice but the repetitiveness is BORING. Everthing in celestia is collect, collect collect. And when you do go to collect all you get is DID NOT COLLECT, DID NOT COLLECT, DID NOT COLLECT.

I'm on the verge of cancelling my subscription. I would like to continue on with the story but the aggravation makes it not worth it. Isn't a game suppose to be fun? Way to ruin a great game... I have played many MMO's and developers always find a way to ruin their game.

I finally got the bark from the junglethorn, but I had to defeat them somewhere different. Don't start a battle right beside Cuoroscade (I think that's his name.) You need to go to the battle circle not right beside him, and not very far away from him. It's in the area of The waterfall guy, and it is right beside the closest battle circle. The right battle circle is between the close one and the very far one. I apologize if this is a little misleading.
