When was the last time you saw someone else who wasn't in your party killing monsters?
And when you saw this, did you happen to notice whether or not you could see the items dropping from the monsters they killed?
Because, at some recent update, drops from monsters killed by other players stopped showing up unless they were in a party with the observer.
This has a side effect of making the Magic Scales cash item completely useless even when in a party.
When did this happen? Is it intentional? Nexon never told us about this.
