I have played the bosses repeatedly alone or with a group and never received Swords or pets. It gets rather frustrating when I have fought bosses like 30 times and get nothing but someone else goes in once and gets items. Can someone please try to explain this to me I am level 45 ice and don't seem to be able to receive anything.
You are not alone. I can't use swords yet buy when I went into a boss battle in MooShu (Jade Oni) with some friends I won a sword, maybe the 17th time? My other friend has played this guy like thousands of times. Swords are rare, keep trying. I was just lucky.
Also checkout the Bazaar, there is more often then not some swords there. But, there about the cost of a small WC house so I just suggest to keep trying ;)! ~Gorman Battlesword Level 26
