Pet drop rate

Ahh yes I'm here to complain about the pet drop rate. I have been farming in DS where you have the 4 bosses. I have been farming them since the new pet system came into being. I have spent hours and hours trying to farm them. Let's just say I was able to buy a school specific house because with gold because of how much I farmed them. That's 100K gold just for the house. Now you ask how many pets was I able to get while farming. A big fat 0. That's how many.

The drop rate for these pets is way off if I spend an average of 4 hours a day durring the week and well a lot more on the weekend. I have had probably around 100 battles looking for the death minataur alone. Still no pet.

Then I've spent about an hour and a half total all week farming for the 1 day mount drops. I now have 16 myth sprites. (I decided to make an army of them on my life wiz. Just because I have so many.) I honestly think things are way off if I can get 16 myth sprites in around an hour and a half and no death minataurs with 100 battles. I might add I was able to find 5 statues, 3 snowflake obelisks, a deck, and numberous clothing items while farming. And that's just from one of the bosses. That should tell you something.

I'm sure many people are having the same problem that I am. I know I've been farming with a friend who's on just as much as I have been. She still has yet to get a pet in that area as well. I've talked to many players, who after a week of farming that area haven't found any pets either. I have even had players question if they did drop pets at all. I've only personally seen 2 pets drop in the week I've been farming. Even being on full realms.

Please, please, please adjust the drop rates so that it's actually possible to get a decent pet. I'm not say have everyone get one on the first try. I'm just saying it's a bit rediculous to farm as many hours as I have and not have any pets to show for it. (Well in that area. I'm not talking about the myth spritese here.)

Thank you

I SO agree with you here. I am almost level 22 and I have had only ONE pet drop (but at least it was a snow serpent). KI please increase the rate at which pets drop!

I understand that sometimes we all want the rare pets, and i have spent a long amount of time farming the banshee from nightshade... still no luck i might add... But i think thats what makes it fun. Knowing that when you finaly get the pet it is something rare. If KI was to increase the pet drop rate a lot of these pets would not longer be valuable. Do you really want that? Also some pets are much more rare then others... Like the death minotaur, I never see a lot of people with that. Maybe the ones who have it just got lucky. I have also seen questions on the forum that have asked if it actually exists. Rare right? I am actually not suprised that, even playing for a long time, many people don't get it.

No dont increase the pet drop rate it is fine the way it is. If getting the death minotaur and spectre were made as easy to get as the myth sprite then everyone would have one.

It ain't that hard, it takes me about 20 fights a battle, being grand helps with that, it's why I got over fifty pets, no lie, I will show you all of them if you ask.

i usally am NOT lucky but i agree i had farmed for the spectre for hours and hours, my friend comes in and gets it on first. but when i did malistare i got storm hound on FIRST (no meaning to brag) try but you gotta try other pet drops then come back to the 1 u want. i've gotten lucky due to that so try it. BUT LOWER THE DROP RATE KINGSISLE!!!!!! its completly unfair and i fell jelious when i get a pet on first and my friend farms for like a total of like 6 hrs straight every day till he gets it(and he still hasent :()

SO LOWER IT!
