Hi,

I just noticed that shards drop rate seems like decreased after latest update. As I was constantly playing Dungeon-1 Skull-2 mission and out of 5-times at-least 3 times I was getting shards but after this update I played that 5-times in a go and none of them gave me shards.

Is this just coincidental or they really changed it ? Like don't give shard if you are playing same mission again (or repeatedly) ? Can someone else confirm this ?

Thanks

I've gone through it a bunch and the rates are pretty usual. I did notice though, that as I started using it for leveling my Heroes instead of trying to beat it with troops and 5 Heroes, I was not getting as many shards. I don't know if that's the way it goes but I seem to have better luck if I lose troops or low level Heroes.
Example: getting a Hero through 40/60 levels ~ 30-35 runs>30 shards
getting a Hero though 1/20 levels ~ 9 runs>24 shards

Just my personal experience.

You need more test results. Five tries is not enough, I've gone 20 without any shards. :S If you're always able to get 3/5 times shards, consider it very lucky, that's a good result!

I have been doing some study on shard drop chance for about 10 days and the drop rate averages to a little less than 30% as of now. But I have noticed that the drop chance is actually decreasing overtime. I will have to find out what happened in the new patches next several days.

I would say I only get 15-20%. I get too many bad streaks... For example I'll be getting shards for each 1 out of 3 or 1 out of 4 tries, then suddenly I would get a bad streak and not get any for 10+ tries... but suddenly when my bad streak is over, I get them at a steady rate again.

my rates have always been about 20-25%. U would think it's 3 out of 5 because you unconciously remembered when you obtained shards since you want it to happen and don't really notice when you didn't get any.

the overall drop rate for shards in skull dungeons is about 25-27% Tested by my runs and compared to the stats in the game guide section on the topic of shard drop rates.

yea I would agree with 25%. How bout chances of getting legendaries with gems/HB? we need at large sample size to get a reliable %.
