    If you wake up at night to not let your stamina rot? :D

    and refill xD

    While I used to get 90+ CT between 2 CoT events (that usually happen once a month) running Shin'en almost all the time, lately I'm having some issues finding new Tickets. After running BLO1 for days I decided to go back to my favourite Riftworlder and I think that more than 20-30 Tickets per 4 weeks is not possible anymore; I'm currently stucked at 16 Tickets, and I think that I'll stop spending most of my stamina on that once I'll touch 20 or 30 CT.

    Have you completed Ch 38 or are you pre-Ch 36? I'm pre-Ch 36, and my droprate is nowhere near that generous.

    I had completed Chapter 38.
    Though, I doubt the claim that there are different drop rates based on players' current Chapter.

    During past 2 months, I did not see any significant change to my Shin'en drop rate when I completed Chapter 38. It had always been around ~2.5% - ~3% both before and after I completed Chapter 38.
    Only this month that I see noticeable increase in CT drops.

    However, imo, you should complete Chapter 38, on the off chance that the claim might actually be true.

    llGoDLikEll has like 9% drop rate (100 runs, 9 CTs) and LegendaryFrog has ~8.738% drop rate (103 runs, 9 tickets), and both of them have completed Chapter 38.

    That's what I mean. I have a theory that recently they changed post-Ch 38 Shin'en drops to better CT drop rate, mostly because I noticed everyone that has reported better drop rates are exclusively people who have completed Ch 38. I'll probably complete Ch 38 after the new Z characters are released and I use up all of my saved energy to try to pull them.

    I have cleared chapter 38 and haven't seen a single ct drop since 6 days. It's still RNG. During last event I got in 4 runs 3 ct. Couldn't believe it.

    Personally I lose patience with anything that costs more than a full bar of stamina for a single drop. I find it too frustrating to burn through a whole bar and come up totally empty handed. I farmed Shinen constantly back when hard mode was only 2 hours a day and you could actually get some CTs, but now I don't even bother. Which is sad, because CT farming was one of the last fun things to do in this game, since I've cleared all the other content except Mutoh (and she is still just out of my reach). Maybe 4.8 will bring a new way to get CTs.

    The CT drop rate in Shin'en feels even more lower now because of the two new rings.

    A new CoT event will start in ~11 hours...
    Well, it's time to report my Shin'en's CT farming attempt.

    Before 4.8.0 Update: 880 Runs, 36 CTs, Average CT Drop Rate ≈ 4.09%

    After 4.8.0 Update: 155 Runs, 3 CTs, Average CT Drop Rate ≈ 1.935%

    Not even worth it to farm CTs anymore. Sad because collecting companions used to be fun. Shin'en CT drop rate nerf was the worst change I've seen in 450 days playing this game.

    You think CT drop rate is worse than Luck? :eek:

    Luck is the only way I could get 2x PDZs... no way in hell I was going to play a stage with a 1% drop rate over and over... so it has its benefits

    Yeah, Shin'en's CT drop rate is really terrible, especially since the addition of new rings.
    BLO1 is more stamina efficient and has a bit better, though still terrible, drop rate (~2.813%).

    That's actually not the terrible part...imagine doing all that work and pulling a bunch of Orichicalcum sword and rods from the CoT? Now that's terrible.

    Ha so true- I would run Shin'en 1000 times if you told me I could get a Hiso God out of it, but the thought of putting in all that time and frustration just to get some worthless companions I already have... I'd probably throw my phone out the window in anger

    If your mind can stand all that farming you wouldn't feel anything anyway, you'd be most likely no more than an empty shield.
