Is it all in my imagination or do you fail quest's more often at night than at day ?

( I do Far Journeys only )
Last night about 1 AM, I did 6 quest's...
Failed 4 at 80%
1 at 57%
1 succes at 80%


Today, ( its now 10:30 AM, GMT+0 )
I've done 7 quest's so far

1 at 9%, failed ( ofc, rare that u get them 9% succes )
2 at 57%, both good
4 at 80%, all good

it's now 1:52 pm GMT+0
Total Quest's 15
3 Fails at 9%
1 Fail at 57%
8 Succes at 80%
3 Succes at 57%

seems to me, that questing at night is either bad luck, or fail rate is increased somehow bounce

On a nite i found that on a successful quest i found better items than during the day. All of my best finds have more or less been at night. Coincidence who knows

i guess the answer to that phenomenon might as usual be:

random number generator

nothing but the ritual of blood can be predicted.
although i think there are good and bad days for questing, somtimes i fail half of my 80% quests, somtimes even 30% are not a problem.

Sure its random if you succeed...

but its abit strange that, You fail more during night, but if you have succes, you find better items...
and during day you complete alot more but usually find crap items ( some are good tho )

that would be a good subject to investigate. would be good to know how the drops are generated... i can imagine that there is some kind of queue (row) with categories/colums for the drops in quests (with xx luck you get the item in row 1 from column X, with yy luck you get column y and so on). and that combined with:

a random number generator considering the time of the day as divisor for chances and a miracle in lets say every 50 rows

that would make sense with what you said. with not that much people doing all their quests in a row at nights. hard to explain even in german. does it make sense in english? Very Happy

You make absolutely NO FUCKING SENSE!... J/K..

it makes sense.... altho the LUCK part is abit strange tho.. cos not everyone has luck on quest's

or atleast I don't.. or if I do I might have 1 luck or so :S

but dont think i do tho

thanks Razz

uhm and of course i thought about the columns as ranges - e.g. 0-10, 11-20,21-30 luck and so on. would make sense with the stones i found so far too. i once hit the miracle when i found a mergestone, the rest was very few lifestones and once a month a heartstone or somthing.

Lol - quests are way tooo random to try & apply any kind of logic! Razz

My tips are:-

If you want to find anything decent, do individual quests, and stay active while they are going on.
Luck has no effect on what you find, only on slightly improving your chance of finding anything.
Proof - I found Bloody shorts of Shadowhunter, Elvish shorts of Sun, Light shirt of Adrenaline, and many more nice items, all without using any luck!
I think the server definitely has periods where it generates "good finds", just as it does generate a number of the same items at the same time. For example, on more than one occasion people have all found nice items or stones on the same day, around the same time. The trick is to look out for these times, and tell everyone to get questing! Very Happy

(or keep it yourself & see how many nice shiny things you can get!!) Razz

I always stay active during quest's...
but I find pair of items like dagger+1 shirt+2 hard hat+1 and sometimes with either a pre- or suf-fix...

I've found 1 item in my entire time here with BOTH a pre and suffix... ( Emerald Ring of Misdemeanour (+3))

tho I've found some decent items with either good pre or suffix ( Tit ring, solar amulet.... and 1 or 2 other things )

the solar amulet used all your luck. dont bother questing anymore Razz


uhm and i gotta admit. the first time for me doing quests at night atm and in 4 i found 2 stones and a suffixed ring. signet of authority, but it´s much better than a shirt. so for now i´d say... yaaaaaay! questing at night rocks... :/ and my shuriken of reaction went to good +2 without ritual.
