Gonna toss everyone a bone when it comes to loot drops and magseal containers
I feel your pain & frustration of having crap like cdef pistols, crystals & recording rods turning up in those boxes
So..I will be going through the screenplays one by one, andgreatly reducing the junk loot drops from the loot tables that control magseal containers and reassigning that probability to the good stuff.
I will start with Ft.Tusken & the Tusken Bunker. THis will mean the odds of getting SEAs from those boxes will be greater..AND the odds of getting a resource deed will be greater as a result, and you wont be wasting loot chances on a bunch of junk.
Also, some news on recycler loot drop rates..that is work as intended. I was up in Ft. Tusken with my TK and my MCM friend and we were ripping up the place, and in the process we pulled out seven (7) feeder tubes.
Naturally the drop rate will be lower if you are in there by yourself, so bring a buddy or make a new one and head up there with a duo or group, I guarantee, you will get recycler parts a LOT faster in groups.
I wanted to add one note about the drop rates of loot kit parts & recycler parts and why it felt like there were so many drops on the SOE server compared to here, now.
1. The variety of NPC types that drop the stuff is still smaller than the SOE servers, and this is a work in progress, more NCs over time will have the parts.
2. on the SOE servers, they had these fast spawning knots of NPCs like meatlumps, ragtag kooks, etc. and SOE made the parts drop off all those..but there were stupid-easy to kill, as such you may recall the hordes of AFk spawn campers (commandos mainly) out farming the hell out of those, and with a respawn rate of like 30 seconds, it was easy to rack up LOTS of parts and cash.
in SWG the ragtag kooks are made no-attackable for this very reason, as players on Basilisk were farming the hell out of them for credits, massive amounts of credits.
So on Tarkin, that class of NPC, the fast spawning easy-noob spawns will get removed because we have no need of them given how out blue frog works. THose NPCs were for Day 1 novice box players, not MCMs.
