    Has the drop rate for titanite Slabs changed in PTDE?

    Post by StockpileThomas on Mon Sep 17, 2012 5:05 pm

    I tried looking for a thread about this, but couldn't find one. I'm wondering if FromSoftware increased the drop rate of titanite Slabs or are we still going to have to "farm" hundreds of Dark Wraiths in the hope we'll get one... eventually... Prostration

    I don't mind farming chunks, but the slab drop rate is just absurd; it's more like a lottery.

    Yes it MUST be a lottery to have all your armor +10 and a weapon at +15 happy

    Do not complain. Or they will make it impossible to find slabs again. And we don't want that.

    I've had better luck with Slab drops in PTD than I ever did on the console version.

    On my first PTDE toon I went to farm some chunks... Second round, I see a little Vagrant, the one that start to run as it sees u, I get to kill it, drops a purging stone, then I kill the DW close to the VLE path and bam... I got a slab!!! Could't belive it, no CGS ring qnd with only 5 humanities...

    I am not sure if the vagrant somehow increased the chances of the drop rate... I couldn't tell, but seeing a vagrant and getting a slab right away was really awesome...

    After that, I was getting only like 1 chunk per round, like if the drop rate decreased severely after getting the slab.

    I haven't gotten any other drop since then...

    I haven't noticed any difference in the drop rate.
    On the other hand, there's a new slab of every color in the DLC. So there will be more guaranteed slabs per playthrough.

    If only Frampt upgraded stones instead of degrading them, this wouldn't be an issue.

    Example: Give Frampt 10 (or even 25) titanite Chunks, and he'll spit out a slab.

    I wish I wasn't so OCD about using only maxed out gear, hehe.

    Yes, yes it has increased considerably.


    In about 1800 hours of Dark Souls on PS3 I only ever gotten 3 slabs from the Wraiths in New Londo, of which one was obtained during a farming run of about an hour. The other 2 were just lucky drops I guess.

    Now, on the PC version after about 200 hours of gameplay, I've gotten 7 slabs so far....it's crazy.

    But again, that just may be the whole lottery aspect of it coming into play. You may just have gotten really lucky, without more testing/replication it can't be affirmed that Slabs do drop better in PTDE.

    Thanks for the info! That's great news. Joy

    I guess I'll hold off on Wraith runs until next month. Praise the Sun

    True. I killed between 300 - 500 Wraiths and got one slab. Then, one night, I did about 8 or 10 runs, and got three in one sitting... It made no sense. And my Item Discovery wasn't even maxed out -_-

    Good. The drop rates should increase....really pain in the *** to just grind it all out for hours trying to get lucky to get a slab. Probably the only one who thinks this...a merchant should sell slabs but not for an infinite amount tho ( not sure how much it would cost) multiple playthroughs to get a slab I understand that part, but its just only 1 upgrade to get max level

    Interesting. I haven't gotten a slab from the dw's yet on pc... I've played through 6 times. I'll put on the ring and try it tonight. I kind of figured From was making up for the BB patch by putting the extra slabs in the new content, but maybe they took it a step further.

    Like I said I would, I put the GS ring on and went slab huntin'. First DW gave me a chunk, second DW gave me a Slab. In all my time on Xbox and PS3 I've gotten them to drop 1 slab; I never farmed for them specifically, but still.

    Interestingly, I only kill one Pinwheel in the ToG each round (the one you can drop-attack after you get the white slab), and he dropped another white slab!

    I think Fromsoft went soft. Hafta start calling them Softfromsoft.
