    It wouldn't hurt if they just separated the slots in the pool and have Synthesis materials in 1-2 slots by itself and same thing for gear/accessories in their own pools. There's really no need or reason whatsoever that any piece of gear from omen bosses should be in the same slot as synthesis materials and should be separated.

    Something definitely needs to be done about the bodies, either an alternate method of obtaining them, or increasing the drop rates / adding them to Ou's loot table.

    It is a bit crazy that my group has done Omen daily since release and we haven't seen a single body. Coupled with the addition of Ou, meaning we're now killing those bosses less frequently is quite demoralizing to our hopes of getting any of the bodies.

    Omen is the current endgame, its purpose is to make it hard to get the some of the best equipment. no more spaming like before due to 20hr block

    Difficulty, and Time to obtain are 2 different metrics. I'm fine with it being difficult, but stupidly low drop rates without an alternate means of obtaining them i'm not ok with.

    What if turning in 100 scales allowed you obtain the body from a respective boss?

    Also current droprates wouldn't be too horrible if there wasn't the 20 hour lockout. I can't recall any <5% droprate item that also was behind a 20 hour lockout... and not to mention made you choose between different ones to go for.

    What makes it even worse is going for body is often detrimental to card farming making it even more of a choice between other stuff as well.

    We never card farm, so that's not an issue for us. I'd rather they just add a different way of obtaining them rather than removing lockout and having to spam it nonstop for any hope.

    This is already how (we believe) it works. The current idea behind drops for Ou are:

    Slot 1- Equipment or scale
    Slot 2- Moonbow item of any sort or Moonlight coral
    Slot 3- Moonlight Coral
    Slot 4- % chance of another equipment or scale, likely based on TH and such.

    But what it means is you can farm 5 bosses and then kill the mega boss just to get a scale that you already got while getting the KI's for the mega boss...

    Think we had some crossed wires in communication earlier. ^^;; And on second thought, it probably would be a good idea to remove scales from the guaranteed slot (#1) at least. Removing from #4 would also be nice, but could be their idea for limiting the availability of gear in order to extend the life of the content. -_-;;

    3 Omen Runs all Regal Gem drops.

    I have recently done 3 Omen Runs, All drops 3 have consisted of a Regal Gem along with 3 crafting items. We have done dozens of runs with only 1 ring, 7 earrings, many necks, many belst, and 3 body drops (amongst non-OU-drops). The drop rate has been abyssmal (pun intended.) THE TIME INVSESTED VERSUS REWARD RATIO IS NOT EQUIVALENT. While you have adjusted OMEN body drops, your adjustment to your flawed RING/hand drop ratio has lacked in it proficiency. Your inability to adjust the computations in OMEN equates to a lack of understanding / monetization of assests.

    I'm really disappointed that in 2 years, we didn't even get a "No plans" response. :/
