Sparse Frond Drop Rate

AuthorMessage

Please increase the drop rate for sparse frond. I have been farming a lot to try and pick up sparse frond (sites given in Wiki) so I can complete the crafted Azteca house. I have never seen sparse frond in the bazaar and I have five wizards looking daily. I know others are trying to finish the same project and cannot for the same reason. I've asked other wizards for sparse frond and posted on forum and no one has it. If you cannot change the rate, at least offer it in a pack or as crown item. Thank you.

I second Kayla's request. I agree that there should be a challenge to crafting the house, but I have been farming for nearly 2 weeks now, hundreds of times, and not a single Frond drop. The game is supposed to be fun, not ridiculous.

I have to agree I have everything for the new house and have been fighting the two bosses that supposedly drop the sparse frond and I have been doing it for what seems to be non stop for weeks I have stood in bazaar refreshing for hours at a time and there is nothing its way to frustrating please fix this hard is one thing but this is way too much

also in the hello spirit I have received two of the other frond plants and wonder if they accidentally put them in instead of sparse frond I need sparse fronds and then I can craft my house.

please its just too much they are not dropping at all

We plan to increase the drop rate for Sparse Fronds in the next major update this summer.

Oh, thank you! I've been going crazy trying to find some. Will you also increase the places it can be found? Please?

Um, okay. I'm sorry if it sounds rude, but I would think KI would jump on this a bit faster to make the players happy. Having to wait until the next major update in the summer (and, how soon is that?) seems a bit far away to me. So, what do people do in the meantime if they can not get the sparse fronds? Wait? That's not very good customer service. People have worked hard to try and craft the house they would like to have now. I don't think it's fair that anyone should have to wait a month? Two months? More?

I agree, one would think that this ingredient would be made available more readily. I would even craft them. Waiting until the summer is not fair *sighs*

I have to agree about the availability of the Sparse Frond.
Too bad there is not immediate fix for those brave wizards
that want to craft the Azteca house. My wizard has made
all the items to craft that house but sadly can't get those
extremely sparse fronds. It would be welcome if we could
craft those or have other options for obtaining this item.
I have farmed and farmed for this at the recommended places
and still nothing. Like other wizards, I have grown tired of
farming repeatedly to get nothing. I am a very sad wizard
indeed.

of the hundred or so times that I have farmed for sparse frond,
I have not received any. Very sad indeed. We should have more
than 2 options for getting this item. I am just one of a very long list
of frustrated wizards wanting to "complete" this house. Is there a
point to offering this crafted item if one cannot get the ingredients?
I too would be willing to craft it or buy it. This farming for weeks on end
is just tiring and not all that much fun.

Just wondering if anyone has had any luck farming for sparse frond. I think the major summer update has happened, but I haven't had a drop yet.

I'd say it hasn't happened yet, considering no new content has been added. The major update this summer that is referred to is most likely the one in Test Realm now with Fishing being added.

I can't tell if I'm agree with you or providing information, but I don't think the major summer content update has happened yet because this Sparse Frond fix hasn't happened. I think we'll see multiple instances of the Test Realm open this summer. I have my finger's crossed for this major update to occur a short while after Fishing goes live.

FINALLY crafted my Treetop Getaway! After weeks of farming and crafting, the hardest part was collecting the Sparse Fronds! Had one from a previous fight somewhere, lucky enough to buy one at the Bazaar and won one from Hielo Spirit after 10 or so tries. Now on to craft some furniture for it!

Oh, I have tons of those. Cronus seems to think that they are an acceptable substitute for the Blade of the Felled Titan.
