Yeah the overall drop rate is not entirely bad, it's just that while the shurikens were still dropping, one site was more than enough to collect 150 units of materials, now the yield of a single site is more like 120 or 130.I’m there at the moment. I’ve just filled up on Technetium and can confirm that I’ve seen zero shurikens and that every cluster that did drop was the sea urchin type. This seems different to my previous trip when both types of shards would drop.
I’m still getting disappearing clusters but it doesn’t seem quite as bad as the last time I was here. After an initial spate of disappearing clusters it seems to be a, rough, rate of 1 in 3 or 1 in 4. I seem to remember it being a 1 in 2 or 1 in 3 rate on that last trip but I didn’t make notes so can’t confirm that.
I’ll try and take note of drop rates and behaviour as I go around the rest of the sites.
