Looking for some general observations here as I try and fail (again) to find a Fleshy Symbiont to round out my Atronach Element Collector. I've been running around Abamath on and off trying to finish this, without success. On my latest attempt, I began to wonder, is it even possible to get trophies while on a Loot Cooldown?
Loot Cooldown, from what I've observed, is when the game throttles your loot acquisition. You'll get less valuable loot as you grind until reaching a point where you just get a few coins and maybe a couple of Alkahest. Eventually some timer resets, and you get a full loot drop again, which gets progressively less valuable until the timer resets again. Repeat ad nauseum.
I haven't found any other decent places to try to acquire this trophy besides Abamath, but the low droprate makes me suspicious, and there's been on-again off-again discussion about trophy drop rate that suggests something somewhere may be broken. I'm wondering if anyone has some observations on when they're aware of being on a loot cooldown, and if they acquired trophies while on it. Or if there's something else broken.
