Re: Rare Treasure Drop Weekend

Jul 9, 2013

Bronze Nepali Lion for Salim’s Goggles AND a trophy.  Sigh.  This continues to elude me.

 

I play mostly coop Arena…over 2000 completions…over 180 000 kills.  Hunter Arena…I know, I know – but I can stand only so much of it. Smiley Indifferent

 

I don’t know how many rare treasure drop weekends there have been but it’s remarkable to me that so many people are still missing one or two coop treasures AND how the same treasures keep coming up time after time (for me anyway).  Wild coincidence, I suppose.  I’m sick of seeing Newari figures and the other treasure from the last set I need to complete (I pick up the Bronze Nepali Animal ALL the time – it would not be too much of an exaggeration to say it’s every 10th treasure or so).  I love ND’s games but the stated treasure drop algorithm does not seem to jive with reality.  I’m clearly becoming paranoid because it seems as though the game code “knows” what treasures the players already have and drops those more often.

 

I’ve come to the conclusion that Rare Treasure Drop is useless for Coop Arena.  Having said that, I did pick up 5 competitive treasures this past weekend so that’s a plus and a friend finally got her final coop treasure (congrats Snow).  Now I have only TO and Plunder treasures to finish on the comp side (Halleluiah, no more FFA!)

 

Maybe not today or tomorrow but eventually, UC3 will fade to black…it’d be awfully nice if we could get all the coop treasures (comp too but in the end, I care more about a trophy than some headgear or weapon).  At the risk of drawing the wrath of ND, I’d love to see the actual algorithm for the Arena treasure drops so I could maximize my chance of getting a trophy that sorry, but I feel I should have gotten a long, long time ago.

 

There, rant done.

I mean I tried for months on end to get Chloe's Winter Hat and Slim Glasses. Then I bought Winter Chloe and didn't have to and what do you know I unlock it.

 

Now I'm trying to get Elena's Cat Ears and can't find them but my friends who never use Elena have them. They need all of Drake's or Sully's accessories and I have them all. I think this is a mind game. Use the characters who you hate to get the treasures you love.


That may be true. I got the cat ears, and I always used to use chloe.. and I have nothing unlocked for her apart from drunk bought dlc.


You don't have her Winter Hat?

And I always find her second treasure in Arena....you see how things are, the treasure you want the most is the last one youre gonna find Smiley Sad

 

I found both Elena's cat Ears and Chloe's Winter Hat second treasures in Arena, but I can't find the last for the Aviators....good thing I play with Chloe and Elena way more I play with Drake, lol


They seriously need to sell the treasures.

 

Then again.. It's ND...

 

They have no concept of what is good business.

Yes, I agree! Smiley Sad

 

Keep playing Arena with me and you'll find some treasures you're missing!

 

I always find the same treasures and you need some of them Smiley Happy

 

I think it could work! Smiley Wink

Easy solution, get friends who have the treasure you have and vice versa so you have their treasures and do the Chateau glitch. I'd do it but it gets boring after a while :/
