Has anybody noticed that 2x event drop doesn't seem to affect Commerci bosses?
Since normal drop rate modifiers don't work on the Commerci bosses, due to the weird "box under the boat" drop mechanism. I assumed that 2x drop events would at least have an effect... but after doing runs on every 2x event that I've played on, I've never seen any increase in drops from the bosses.
So this last Sunday I decided to pay attention to some numbers while doing my runs during the 2x exp/drop event.
-Exp for the voyage does appear to get doubled, or close at least [FWIW I noticed that 2x quest exp cards from the cash shop worked too, it wasn't stated when you received the exp after the run. But if you actually counted the exp you gained on your exp bar, it was double the stated exp]
-Meso drops from mobs during the voyage ARE doubled. For example, coral crabs usually drop less than 1k for me, resulting in stacks of cash as opposed to meso bags. But on 2x, I was getting double that amount, and they were always meso bags (>1k)
Meso drops from the bosses, however, were NOT affected by the 2x drop event. On Sunday's 2x event I received (approx) 10k from Red Polpo, 13K from Green Polpo, and 20K from Green Livy, on a Rien run. Today I just did two Rien runs resulting in 14k/11k from Red Polpo, 12k/10k from Green Polpo, and 20k/14k from Green Livy. Basically matching amounts (approx), def not doubled...
I'm left thinking that nothing increases the boss drop rates during Commerci voyages, not even 2x Events...
Doing daily runs since the drop rate reduction (1 Lith, 2 Rien) I've only gotten one SW equip... A 2h BW. Ugh... [Did get 2 anvils this week tho]
Please Nexon, increase the equip drop rates. srsly
