    The Star`s End Excavation Node does not yield the Mass of Pure Magic every time my worker is finished with working at the Node... I do not know if this intentioned but its very furstrating to see a worker working for 15 hours and dont even drop 1 Mass in your Storage.
    Girlfriend is experiencing the same issues.

    It is intentional. That is the rare drop from the node like the trace nodes before that may or may not drop the rare item. It sucks to be sure but it is the planned mechanic.

    Same for me. It's planned like that. Put a artisan human there with max luck.

    According to my experience, its around 50% chance to get one.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but afaik luck does not factor in at gathering nodes, only when you produce something (like armor or tools), there it has a chance to proc a better piece (yellow armor or lucky tools). Also, my experience show this too, I used human/goblin worker at the Trace of savagery node, and they brought in the same amount.

    I have gotten one every day since I put an artisan goblin from Heidel onto the node.

    I leveled up the node to see if it would increase the yield of mass of pure magic, it stopped giving mass of pure magic.

    Which one did you level up? The main node or the worker node?

    Hi @Unspeakable

    As pointed out by other players in this thread, the mass of pure magic does not drop every time and while I know it can be frustrating to collect, it is a rare drop item and may take some time to collect.

    If I had to guess, I average maybe one mass every 1-2 days with my human artisan worker. I think I have about 20-something sitting in storage now. The only reason I'm not bothered about the speed is because I don't have the Dark Rift quest item drop, so I can't even start the Blackstar quest in the first place!

    If you're thinking about buying one from the Marketplace and you don't have many Pure Magic yet, you might as well wait a bit and see if you get lucky from Rifts -- no point in getting your Blackstar if you can't even upgrade it past your current weapon's level.

    I know. My problem is, the drop rate significantly decreased after one of the patches (the one two weeks ago if I'm right), and did not recover since. Please look into it whether this is intentional or a bug.
