I have a defeat and collect quest in Mooshu and it has wasted a whole day of my life. Yes a whole day! I need to collect one silly little item and it has taken up my whole day to not even get it at all! Idea time! MAJORLY!
Start the drop chance at about 40%, then after every battle, up it by five percent. That way, you won't have to battle 70 ships with no item collected. I am seriously tired of having to defeat these Marleybone ships for a shipment of gold! The guy who gave me the quest even said himself that all the ships had SOME gold on it!
