    What are the odds for the CT drops in the luck chests in Shinen?

    I got Shinen to 100L and only got 1 CT. Is it really that rare? I see people here on the forum talking about farming them, but with these rates, I am questioning the feasibility of doing so.

    When I gathered rates from the community last year I calculated that the drop rate was around 4% for Shinen and 4% for BLO. So it’s low but most of the people who farm don’t have anything else to spend their stamina on anyway!

    Keep in mind that the drop rates are determined server-side so there’s no way for us to know what the rates are for sure. MW could also be constantly changing them, for all we know.

    I got to get 5 CTs in 3 days during the last companions event.
    I was surprised to be so lucky as normally I don't even try.

    Sometimes rngesus is with you and sometimes he kicks your ass. I prefer Baha1 and Levi1. Shin'en is my buddy, when Odin is up. I got 5 CT during the event too. 54 CT in stock. Looking forward to new shiny companions joining in upcoming updates.

    I used to get tickets from Shinen but now is an exercise in frustration. Have the odds being increased or is crap as usual?. The truth is we will never know as MW can change this on a whim and nobody will ever notice or prove it.

    Back when the CT odds were calculated around 4% I think the A and B chests contained the 3 tickets and the 8 rings, 11 items. I believe that the reason it seems much worse recently is that there are now 10 rings with the addition of the lunar and solar. Going from 11 to 13 items, especially since the rings appear to be weighted higher than tickets, could explain the reduced CT drop rate. Again all this is server side, MW behind the curtain, Wizard of Oz, subject to their whims, so it's just a guess on my part.

    We used to get Companion tickets from the trade post, often, and up to 10 of them. Now they show up very sporadically at a max of 5, the other tickets are still a maximum of 10 and show pretty often, so yea is safe to assume the reduced companion tickets everywhere.

    Can someone confirm that Shin'en still drops them? More than 3 days of farming and not a single comp ticket :(

    Was tempted to post this in (one of) the old threads or starting a new one, but as I saw this one I decided to join the discussion.

    Since a while I got problems farming CT, finding one ticket every 1-3 days (although I also found 3 CT in a row once), but lately (at the day before the launch of the 5.3.0 patch I think) I'm back at my usual 2-3 tickets per day (worst case scenario I get only one, best case 4-7), anyone else got back at the pre-moon/solar numbers?

    Mutoh also drops Companion Tickets. After 20 runs I got 1. Why is Shinen prefered? Cuz faster to kill?

    Faster to kill, more margin of error, more accessible (Suoh from PoT, Bahl and S'naip are silvers, with the right setup you don't even need a 6th OP character), and because we (I) got used to it xD

    With time Mutoh might got a ton easier, how many turns/pincers does it take now? (I remember of seeing a couple of videos weeks ago) Shin'en takes a couple of turns with a double pincer (no magic involved, only few AoE) and a couple of minutes (result screen included).

    Also Shinen even with an optimal fast kill allows you to level 1-2 characters

    Right now im running shinen and killing him in 3 turns (i dont have Grands) while im leveling 1 character, with full XP and TH bonus (yes i want particles lol) and SBing Ginny at the same time.

    Well thats how i would run it if i would run it xD which i dont do it very often but is the team i use.

    I need 6-9 turns, depending on mutohs Position. I am just doing it to lb mutoh. But was Happy to see the Ticket drop. Guess I will also do shinen or legendary 5 runs afterwards.

    I would prefer Tickets as reward for Weekly challenges or other new challenges.

    Shinen is easier and much faster, both Shinen and Mutoh are 100 luck so no reason to pick Mutoh, there is like no alternative to Shinen currently, but although it should be a decent drop rate, in reality is crap, and MW seems to have nerfed it, it used to drop more often. I wish there could be some way to influence the luck chests, but currently I just gave up on CT farming, hopefully there will be alternatives in the future, I would not mind it being added to a hard boss like the Sun King for example so long it was a increased drop rate.
