For me this lead is just another example that ZOS doesn't communicate with players, doesn't know what is going on in their game or simply doesn't care about us.
After all those data they had from shadowfen kilt wars, they decide to do this?
Safeboxes are even worse source to farm than the previous. Spawn longer, and there are less of them in the zone.
I really don't get it. There is no profit in it for them, just anger from their customers. Those players that will farm it will get angry, and those (like me) who feel like they have better things to do will also complain, because they just can forget about obtaining the mithic for couple of months (and I'm sure there is an incoming nerf). So yeah GJ ZOS.
I feel like diging out some active leads first usually gives a better chance of obtaining a new lead.
Mythic leads are just there to increase the grind and pad out activity/play time, (usually in dead zones), to make the spreadsheet numbers look nice.
I don't know if not looting actually helps. I came there the second day of the release of high isle because all the locations had been found.
I spent an hour checking safe boxes that were already unlocked and got nothing. I decided to move to a spot with less people so I could try unlocking it first. I got the lead on the first box I unlocked myself. Then I brought my friend to come do his early and he got his on his first try too. So there is that, take it as you will.
Just checking, was this on the same box that your friend got the lead?
In other words are you confirming 2 leads can drop from one box?
100% this will get nerfed as soon as High Isle sales drop off. Without a doubt. Cast iron, set in concrete definate.
And the nerf will be to the point that the item is next to useless, as is always the case with these things.
There's a report in one of the other Oakensoul threads that the Petrified Loop lead has been found in a Murkmire Thieves Trove.
- Doubled the drop rate for many Antiquity Leads found in safeboxes, including the Petrified Oaken Loop.
- Introduced another source for the Petrified Oaken Loop Lead for you to discover.
@ZOS_Kevin is this included in monday’s patch? Thanks!
