    Not a reference to a YouTuber who does some very good video posts in relationship to astronomy and other topics.

    No, this is in relation to the new horse gear.

    If you haven't looked, the gear requires SURREAL mats, like each piece requires 120+ Garmouth's Scale.

    So, focusing in on Garmouth's Scales ALONE, I'm just going to say, the drop rate is 1 scale per hour WITH a +Item-Drop-Scroll. Yep, 1 per hour, WITH a +Item-Drop-Scroll.

    Yep, I'm going to STICK to that 1 per hour drop rate WITH a +Item-Drop-Scroll
    If you try to post something else in this RNG, DISPARITY-BIASED, GRIND FEST, I'm not going to accept it, unless there is some patch to ASTRONOMICALLY increase the drop rate.

    So....

    That's 120 HOURS for 120 pieces.
    And the set has 5 such pieces.
    BUT WAIT!
    The saddle requires 145 Garmouth's Scale, and the Stirrups, 125.

    So, 120 + 120 + 120 + 145 + 125 = 630 Scales = 630 HOURS with a +Item Drop Scroll.
    LET ALONE, the other mats, like 200 corals of some color/flavor.

    Seriously, "What DA Math"?!?!?

    We're talking HUNDREDS of hours for any one piece.
    THOUSANDS for the set. Maybe even TEN'S of THOUSANDS of hours.

    How does a business view their customers with such DISCONTENT to FLAUNT something like this in front of their customers?

    That's not INSANE, that's not an INSULT either.
    That's not even a "WHY BOTHER"?

    That's an INVITATION.

    An INVITATION to go play any different game, if not a better one.

    Just like every others parts of this game . You basically need to be a nolifer to reach your goals.

    The amount of mats required for that horse gear is as ridiculous as PEN enhancement sucess rate :D

    Scale drop rate is about as good as Pila Fe Scrolls in Valencia. A 2600 Kagtum GQ earlier gave me 10 scales lol. That's like 10 scales in 45 min. Level 0 node, no loot scroll used.

    Did we take into account that GScale prices are on the rise in the marketplace, and thusly those players that do not care about said horse gear or scales may be enticed to sell their scales, thusly generating supply on the market? And we are talking "Boss" horse gear. Why anyone has this connotation that boss equipment should be easy to obtain is beyond me. Roll the clock back a few months and everyone was complaining about having too many garmoth scales that would not sell because there wasn't much use for them.

    Easy is one thing, but making it ridiculously time consuming is another.
    It needs to be somewhere in the middle.

    one of the bigger faults of this game is the fact we get information in advance from korea. many people profit from it and many people lose novelty feeling because of it. i really hoped "global build" would solve this issue but obviously not.

    wdym, u already can get silver. ;D

    Who care about Scales, you need 1000 spirit stone fragments and only way to get them beside 0.01% drop rate is 5 item/day so you need 200 days.

    I see this as a part of the game, that anyone should be able to get, if they want. But I also think, that is not the most fun part of the game grinding for hours and maybe get what you need to craft that horsey thing.

    If this is "Boss gear" we are talking about, then maybe it should be drop from a Super Boss Horse later on????
    Because you can't craft a Boss gear...right?

    you can actually craft the griffon helmet, but i think that's the only other example. "yellow grade" is the more matching description i guess.

    exactly, and because of that the current garmoth scale shortage will be over again soon. it just takes a bit until everyone realizes it.

    just hop into your timemachine and buy them.

    "Should have prepped" seems a popular response. This is true if this gear matters to you. For me, I play to have fun, and grinding endlessly and mindlessly is not fun for me. In general, I just keep on at my slowed progression rate and buy what I desire later, when the next big thing hits and everyone sells the last one.

    Should have prepped is the 10000% correct answer to ppl that are screaming now that mats are so superduper hard to get and throw around some wird math instead of preparing themselfes over multiple months beforehand..

    Your strategy is absolutely great if you like your pace and im pretty sure you have more fun than a lot of us "preppers" in this game :)

    you know the gear set existed for at least 6 months, you could have prepared for it but instead, you chose to complain about it, yikes
