    Observed: Instead, I have gotten none. A big 0

    Repro Steps:
    1. Went to Cursed Skylands (Uber-9).
    2. Farmed for over 1.5 hours with patron status activated before Gem Day and active.

    3 hrs in and hundreds of gem boxes with no lustrous boxes yet. Patron gets 2 boxes dropped at once (supposedly) and it takes 3 times as long. Fuzzy math at it's best.

    Correct it is a RNG drop but it has been based off of roughly 30 minutes for patron users and 1 hour for non patron. Your RNG falls roughly in that time frame.


    Just did my grind for another 2 hours to get my 2nd drop of the day. Started at noon and my drop came at almost 2pm.


    Something is wrong and needs to be looked at.


    Edit: 2 drops (4 boxes) each took 2 hours....At this pace I would have already be finished with all 6 pre-update with time to spare.

    It is based on RNG but it's also based on a 1 hour "Soft" timegate.
    I normally would get one lust box between 30 minutes to 1 hour.


    Now it takes me about 1 hour to maybe get 2 lust boxes.


    Took me 3 hours today to get all 6.
    With patron.

    Yeah something got borked within this planned change. It took me longer today to get 4 boxes than it has to get 6 in the past 3 months. I normally felt a sense of progression and it was pretty steady, but today was a mess. I'm at 4 boxes in 5 hours...how can this be?

    So looks like PC gets a hotfix for the "Boxes"

    Yet it's not just a PC thing.



    So I guess we'll need to wait until we get the "Crystal" combat update in "Late Jan/Early Feb"



    Looks like the "Graphical error" all over again, Slow to get anything done.
