If you want a better crack at +2 stones, I'm going to guess you need tier 4 or higher heads.
    No it is not the case. I have done a total of around 5 runs that are either tier II or III and like 15 runs with tier I head. I have seen one instance with a +2 stone with visage I and one with visage II. I saw zero stone +2 on tier III head runs. "quality of reward" may not be what you think it is. It is possibly more chace at +1 stones and +2 stones. However just check my experiences above. Higher tier head are definitely not worth the price tag. People don't even know for sure what they do. I see plenty of random claims saying it increases the number of +2 stones but no it's not the case or if it is, it is impossible to notice it really.

    Like I said there is a chest level system, and this is what will bring +2 stones I believe because that's how we got one with a tier I head. We had our chest level up to [rank : *] and someone obtained a +2 stone. However in another instance we had a level up to [rank : **] and didn't get anything special.

    15 1s? 5 2s and 3s? Thats your sample size for your basis on the fact it does not have higher drop rates? That seems way to small... I can go 1/1000 on a Bullet from Akvan but it doesn't mean its a .1% drop rate, it means I was unlucky, in my opinion, there is a good chance you are unlucky, when large sizes are recorded then we can have a more definite answer on it all.

    15 times 6 chests each of which have at least 3 slots, that can drop a +2: around 300 slots and total 3-4 +2 stones.

    Am i reading this right? The skirmish weapons have afterglow, is that correct, or did that poster edit the picture? Because if that's true, that's . . . that's . . . really fucked up. Afterglow is for people who went to 99-2, and ONLY they should get it since SE straight up trolled the shit out of them for them to make it. I don't know how much more I can take of this BS, I notice my relationship with SE has really been beat up the past few years with the lack of attention to detail, like the 76-95 cap quests (horrible, 1 guy came up with the whole thing on his lunch break) and the missing utesumi icon for 5 shadows, the mobs on top of each other in dynamis jueno, there's one other thing I can't let go but it's not in the fore front of my memory atm. But yeah, stuff like that, is why I bitch.

This is a model used by other MMOs such as WoW, and while I don't have anything against people that enjoy this model, if I wanted to play an MMO with that model there are many, many games vast superior to XI in terms of mechanics and especially customer service that offer such a model.

    All the BG info comes from my group or JP wiki pretty much >_>. The info that higher tier heads give more quality comes from SE's update thread description on skirmish and has been disproved by many higher tiers report on BG and here. Mdk and 1 or 2 other posters are the only players good enough to do skirmish that post on BG. The others are just busy building allakatard-like theories on pyres.
