    Ifrit (Hard) Weapon drop rate is a joke.

    I have done Ifrit (Hard) 100 times now, and not even seen a WHM drop or a Bard Bow either, let alone had the chance to roll on it.

    almost every single time its a BLM arm or DRG pike.

    Fix the loot table, and up the loot to 2 weapons guaranteed.

    For us, we get one of the two Books pretty much every run. Never seen the Dragoon Pike in about 30 runs, random loot is sometimes pretty random.

    I COMPLETELY agree. I've only seen SMN book and BLM dagger. It's such a common drop, everyone just greeds on it. I've only done it about 8 times or so, but it's still pathetic.

    Just came back to say I did Ifrit 3 more times, and all times the SMN book dropped. No summoner in party.

    Lol i've never seen the DRG pike drop. Also its completely random every single time, a LS friend of mine did it 47 times before getting the BRD Bow.

    I've seen every single weapon drop 2+ times in 30 runs. Random is random.

    I've seen WHM cane drop a LOT in there. I have also heard that summoner book drops a lot, but I have only seen it once in my many runs (since I started going as smn -- go figure). Random is random, as others have said... But now I have a question for you...

    Would you prefer the way drops worked in Ifrit 1.0 or do you like the adjustment in 2.0?

    (For those who don't know -- In 1.0, a random weapon was SOMETIMES given to a specific person upon completion of Ifrit. You couldn't trade it and it had nothing to do with the job you were playing or even the jobs you had leveled. It was completely random. It was horrible because I would get drops I couldn't use that others desperately wanted but I couldn't give it to them. There was also a chance that you would get a 'totem' in your loot list... Everyone's loot list was individualized. You could choose to pass it or not. You needed ten totems in total to get an Ifrit weapon... and because they were RARE, it could take a while... even if an LS was willing to pass all totems to one person.)

    To be quite honest... I prefer how 2.0 works. Yes, it's random. Yes, it's frustrating. But at least someone gets something every time. Even if they don't have it leveled yet. My advice is to go with your linkshell so at least you're helping to gear your linkshell members even if you don't get the drop you want.

    Sounds like the definition of random to me.

    I expect that the distribution is even and that each weapon has the same chance to appear. One showing up more than others, though, is just the luck of the draw.

    It would be nice to see the totem drops again, so that you can at least try to work on one via slow progress (it could be a chance drop at ~50% and follow the need/greed system). It was the most frustrating thing to do many runs and not see your weapon. Knowing that you can have a shot at progressing to it, though, is always a nice alternative.
