I agree with you. I'm also sick and tired of seeing that sign that appears on the screen. I mean why would it ever do that? It took like a lot of monsters to fight until I got what I needed. Just saying. Lol.

I agree with the insane low rate of dropped items - specifically, with the Waverunners in CL. I was a level 49 Myth (all I had to do was get the 3 items from the Waverunners to level and get new gear :) ), but I had to fight AT LEAST 20 of them. It wasn't so much hard (at times), as it was tedious: summon minion, have minion use taunt, save up to use Orthrus. Please, KI! raise the drop rates so we might be able to enjoy all that the grand new world has to offer.

Please KI raise the drop rates!
You are so right! When I was doing one of the first quest for celestia, I had to collect 3 things and it took me 7 times, to collect ONE! They make this way to hard and long! If anyone wants to find me on the site, I'm JackDuskEyes

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!

I agree, but think of it, if it is close to the end/gives you high EXP, theres gotta be a catch. I dont think you can just beat them and get them, think of it

1. If it has Little Collection it must be hard

2. If it has high EXP, it must be hard

3. If it is close to the end of Celestia, it must be hard

4. If it has high rewards, is must be hard

5. If it is close to the end of a Section it must be hard

6. If it is close to a boss, it must be hard!

Come on people, its Celestia, porobobly the fifth to last world, it might get tougher as they make new worlds!

Something interesting about the DROPS... when something does drop i noticed lately that the item you are looking for (waiting for) is almost never for the school you are - which is frustrating enough. I am fire but if the final blow to the boss is a storm spell or a life spell then the item you are waiting for seems to be for the school that deals the final blow... ok, interesting enough but there seems to be a LOT of fire creatures in both DS and Celestia. If I am dueling more than one (fire) creature then I morph to Storm and the final blow will earn me something for that school... The "...try again" is very annoying, especially if you do not have time to sit for hours to get a difficult quest done (like collect 8 items). I often have to leave the quest to return to it later... art imitates life at times but I do not log-in to Wizard101 to play an emulation to one of life's most unappealing lessons. The game-play is very challenging, especially going solo, but there really should be a limit to the "... try again."

I have a friend from World of Warcraft that I got started playing with me. We have been playing about a month and just reached CL about 2 days ago. The drop rates on these quests has been so annoying, he has decided he probably won't renew his membership for another month for us to max out our wizards.

This makes me a little sad, since this is the highest I have ever played one of my wizards. I also play with my kids, but their attention span is shorter the harder things get, so I was looking forward to finally getting to the end. This is beyond frustrating. It doesn't make it more challenging, it makes it more monotonous and boring.

But if it will be staying this way, I guess he will be going back to WoW. We also play Aion, Rift and a few other games together. This one WAS just the one we played for fun and laughs and pure enjoyment. Oh well! :(

It doesn't matter where in the spiral you are... it's frustrating trying to collect (even more so when friends aren't on and you have to take the enemies in 2s and you need to collect 10 things!)

My Ice is currently in the Crystal area in DS and trying to collect from spiders... I wish I would get it already!

I hate it when it does that. Hate, hate, hate-y hate hate! It is annoying no matter where you are! Until some one changes it, though, just deal with it.

Man, i think the worst part about collecting for me in celestia is collecting that paste or whatever from those ice crab guys in the grotto. Even though i only needed four, it was a pain! Sometimes, I was near death one time with them and after, i got nothing, which made me really angry. But yeah, it's frustrating for me, too.

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

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.

Drops rates need to go up, I agree.

But KI also needs to give us different quests besides battle and collect. The second Section of Celestia was the quickest and easiest part of the world for me. It had few battle and collect quests and more defeat x number of enemies, though Dragonspyre has a ton of those. I can do that. I can fight 5 enemies. Heck, I fight 10 times that number just to get 1 thing in a defeat and collect quest!

So in short, please make the drop rates go up and give us a better variety of quests

Thank you.

the way i see it is if kingsisle was to make it to where you could go thrue the game really fast and collect what you need when you need it you wont have time to enjoy the full effects of the game.
also you wont stop and see all the beoutiful art work and creation that goes into making a kid friendly game that teaches as well as enhances your mind.
i too get mad sometimes at the drop rate but i calm down and try a diffirent stratagy and rethink my moves and then i get it and move on.
i have six cats. going thrue this game and and two are legendary one is grandmaster and so on.
with each cat. i enjoy something diffirent every time.
sorry about the spelling i need to go and enhance my mind some more
thank you

I think this is accurate with. I have the 2 and 6 thing going on. I hate Wave runners. And I have to disagree with the last world thing. I believe its KI's most sucessful project and still going strong. Not to mention the revenue they are getting.

You know when I played Pirates Online there was NO challenge. Maybe once and the main quest was short. Wizard 101 has challenges and its fun. But I think it went over board with Celestia or the waverunners. But at least you can collect them.
