    Fix Oztroja Coffer Key Drop rate.

    The coffer key drop rate on this is less than .01% from my experience yesterday. 4 level 90's, of which two were thieves, and a level 68, spent over three hours killing with no successful drop.

    This is what causes people to stop helping other people out, who wants to spend over three hours farming for a key to not have it drop and have to give up.

    lol... 3 hours. Try spending a whole weekend trying to farm 2 keys from orcs for BLM. Not just a few hours a day either. We were up past Midnight on Friday, the better part of an entire Saturday afternoon---like 6 hours or so, and then went back again for most of Sunday afternoon as well. Gave us lots of time to work on timing magic bursts to a BLU self chains though...by the time we left, we had them worked out in macros to prompt when to fire things off. Closing level 3 with Retribution and bursting on it.... Good times.

    Update: Yesterday there was 2 other parties there, spent 4 hours farming this coffer and again no drop. This time, 2 90THF, 1 69DRK and 90WAR.

    So in 7 hours we've received nothing when, 5 years ago, this same drop would take about 30 minutes or so to obtain.

    Thieves have become worthless, drop rates in areas have become non-existant and overall instead of making the game fit it's years of service, they've crippled the game for lower levels.

    Update: Yesterday, went with 2 90's and level 70. Joined up with 3 people and farmed for little over an hour and half. Received our first drop. - 8 1/2 hours of farming for a Coffer Key.

    Well...many coffer mobs have like a 3% drop rate. So, that's about 8 hours of killing a 16 minute repop until that one particular placeholder would drop that key. Granted, you have about 10 targets up there to hunt, but...that's SE's random for you. You don't remove your result from the pool with each kill so the probability isn't on a favorable slope. Each time you pull a number from the hat and it isn't what you wanted, that bad number goes back into the hat for the next try. So you technically can repeat the same bad result over and over an unfathomable number of times.

    I've had 3 keys drop within 45 minutes while trying to farm BLM spells with only TH2. Actually, everytime I go to Oztroja to use up my coffer key I end up with another one before I leave the zone. Sucks that you were there farming for such a long time but you were probably just unlucky.
