I'm starting to level some of my other DoW jobs and figured maybe it would be fun to get the Plundered Gear set from Shposhae. I went there for the first time last night. Spent 2 hours killing key mobs and got no pieces of Plundered Gear.
Opened Copper Coffer 30x
Killed Shearing Sharidan 20x
Opened Silver Coffer 15x
Opened Gold Coffer 3x
I bounced between my 24 LNC and 50 PGL while I was killing, Grippers with my LNC for a little xp and Sharidan/Lurkers with my PGL.
I noticed that speed of kills does influence drops. While the key dropped pretty much equally using either job, I noticed that when I used Aura Pulse or killed one mob after another two quickly as PGL that I would not get any drops at all.
My main question is: did I just have super bad luck or does job level have some influence on opening coffers?? I opened them all with my 50PGL.
I was going to go back there tonight but it seems like a waste of time. I don't really NEED the set but I thought it would be a fun accomplishment. Getting nothing in 2 hours is not fun.
