    It's possible he's "just one of those folks" but sometimes bugs only get found out by collecting player experiences.

    Mine... I have had ZERO relics from my afk fishing since maintenance and have never had an afk session yielding this number before so maybe he's onto something or maybe its just RNG.

    Anyone else got some numbers to share so we can see if its a pattern or just bad luck?

    I've noticed the same. I'm fairly sure with 95% certainty, that Pearl Abyss ninja nerfed, the items drop rates again. Nothing really to see. It's par the course of these Korean MMO devs. They are ramping up their money squeezing techniques is all.

    Nothing to see here just move along. Or if it bothers you that much. Just find a decent or better MMO that don't use such tactics to play.

    It could be that fever time increased drop rate for relics.

    Yea yea I know, fever time only occurs on weekends normally during the +100% exp time periods, but last couple weeks was the Archer leveling event where +100% exp was on all the time so maybe the increased drop rate was still tied to that.

    I got 1 relic and 53 fish over night last night.

    Before leaving for work I fed my lazy pets and had 7 relics and 47 fish when I reset at lunch time. Seems as random as always to me.

    Went to bed, afk fished with 192 space, caught a few fish on that pond outside Dreighan, then minimized the game. Woke up the character is still auto fishing but doesnt actually catch fish. only 4 fish caught the entire 12 hour period.

    This pattern exist since the beginning of the game. People usually never discuss relics unless they're having a bad luck day. Funny thing is that the day after or something when they get an average drop rate again we don't hear from them again.

    However, there is always a clown that will make a conspiracy theory about manipulated rates and the best part is they never come back apologiseing for defaming when the reality proves them wrong every time after a few.

    But i'm not the only one who's been experiencing this as of late. So are you seriously going to sit here, and call all of us as a collective, "a clown that will make a conspiracy theory about manipulated rates"?

    Dude there are like 10 of you that have reported your "95% certainty," manipulated drop rate, are you serious ?

    Out of them most of them are having bad luck and you're the one making fantasy theories and I bet we won't hear from you anymore on this topic soon, as usual.

    Also do you really enjoy looking ridiculous in public by insulting people that disagree with you ?

    But I only answered in kind. Unless you are seriously going to sit here. And try to say you didn't started throwing simpleton insults at me. Just like you tried to completely rewrite, my actually text on forums in another thread. And than called me dumb and stupid when my text clearly stated what it stated.

    So now again.....

    You'll stop receiving such comments. When you start to behave and not throw troll remarks and statements, around just for the sake of attacking those who you don't agree with. Even tho they give a proper detail summary on why their position is as.

    TL/DR If you want respect than you actually have to give it. If you want to just troll, and throw baseless, ad hominem and straw man remarks and comments. Without any sustenance to back them up. Than be prepared to get called out on it.

    I only got 8 relics last night which is significantly less than the 14+ ive recieved the 3 days before at the same spot.

    Now using maths we can clearly see that my spot seems to be better than most of your spots!

    Guru 9 here, daily afk fishing. Usually average around 12 / 10 hours. Received 4 last night. Will verify again tonight. It is somewhat out of the norm.

    LOL, he probably picked 95% to mimic confidence intervals so he sounds more legit instead of copying the 99.9999% trolls that are so obvious to spot its not even a joke.

    Cool story, in 2 days when every poster here will have normal luck again no one will post again, and you will just disapear.

    The sad thing is you won't get punished for wrongfully defaming.

    So, I AFK fish only, no grinding. I can say that the drop rate only feels less because now you are catching fish that were previously white. As someone who averaged 15-18 a day at my usual spot before the fish "buff", I only get about 8-10 now which is a considerable difference. On bad days I get about 2-4. No real complaints here though, just giving numbers based on experience.

    Events, however, do affect drop rates. Again, just from experience.
