    farming problem due to new patch

    Post by twigsterxd on Tue Apr 23, 2013 11:47 am

    mainly for ps3 users since xbox had patch already.
    Anyone having farming problems since patch 1.8? Spent 3 hours in depths, 14 hum in circle, no serpent ring yet but this is odd. In 3 hours i got 1 green tite, 1 large and 2 humanity. That's not right. Any other times in 3 hours i would have at least 40 humanity or more. Also drops from mobs have stopped in other areas. Resetting game used to help but farming sucks and i need humanity and titanite before going further.

    That does seem pretty low. However, the algorithm would allow for such returns. Hard to say if its the patch or not, but that sure seems low man. :suspect:

    Odd, I haven't had this problem myself. I've been told the drop rate has been changed a bit with the patch but not by much, so I wouldn't think this is because of the patch. The only thing I can recommend is getting the gold serpent ring and trying with that to see how much the drops change after.

    I admire your patience. 3 hours in the depths is more than enough to make me go hollow.

    i've never had problems that bad with farming lol.
    GrinTwist, the only problem with getting the ring is my weapons are weak for me to do blight town solo. not too many tags in that area at sl 11 range. no one drops at start of area. I might wait for a buddy to log on and get his ring. he usually has spares lol. i just find it odd that the drop rate for this toon sucks. I mean before the patch i was doing well, not now sad

    sometimes farming is just like that, you won't get any drops at all one time and the next you'll have more than you know what to do with.

    what i hate is that i always get the drops i'm looking for one of my characters…while i'm playing the character that doesn't need them!

    As long as you have 10 you have 210 droprate which should be more than enough in the Depths, sometimes you'll just have bad luck though. I don't think the patch broke droprates.

    210 is with 10 humanities only, you get 410 with the Serpent ring or the Mimic head.

    I usually don't farm, but started at around 40 humanities today, using ring and sufficient soft humanity, in the depths, I filled my bottomless Box (99) and got (99) to carry. Even invaded quite a few times at sl70. Nuttin broke as far as I can tell.

    If you need large titanite get the gold serpent ring and rusted iron ring and in blighttown in the swamp theres tons of large leeches near the entrance to the great hollow they drop green tianite 5 at a time and large titanite

    Have you got the master key? buy a boatload of boneward homes and basically run down to blighty from firelink via new londo, run past past everything, its quite easy, go down kill the slugs and boneward home back out when all done. rinse repeat.

    I know about the back way. Farming just got better, I need 2 or 3 greens to make divine club a +5. Have 51 hums now. Took about 6 game reloads to get better drops. Once I get the greens it's off to kill some skellies lol
