    200 orbs in steel castle between quick silver and beloved Edel.

    Not a single 40% attack the best I've gotten is 5% Atk, 10% at, and lv 1 auto refresh.

    Those lucky pulls the last few banners came at a price but I haven't been able to get a rare period since they adjusted the iw schedule as I'm sure they nerfed it before I was getting my rare ability every 3rd or 4th run.

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong as I can’t find the rare rates per floor right now but floors 8-9-10 had 2.3% chance at rare and now it’s only the last floor with 2.3% ie they nerfed it

    Chance is still adds up to 8,81% per run, that makes it around 11-12 runs per rare. (According to wiki)

    (Getting one every 3th or 4th run is extremely lucky, i often need 30+ runs for a rare)

    RNG sucks and mostly the lack of any guarantees in there. But i dont think it is nerfed. (Actually doing very wel on this current item world event)

    I got the Rare for Beloved Edel, and then nothing more. A bit disappointing considering I burned orbs (no Lapis though). But at least Edel has her signature gun, so it could've been worse.

    I feel your pain. I'm in the same boat. I spent an STMR moogle on Locke's STMR so I could run it through IW, and I'm at about 300k and no High Tide.

    Yikes. I'm 262k points in with no rare and fuming, I can't imagine going twice that with no rare.

    1st run - floor 4 - rare on Longinus...ended with Atk 37%/HP 20%
    17th run - floor 7 - rare on Tiger Fangs....ended with Atk 30%/HP 27%

    Don't have Edel's weapon - still on lvl 3 of the manor but i'll probably go get it tonight and have it ready for the next IW (at which time Edel will be powercrept by Edward lol)
    So I've been running a variety of weapons - Iconic sword, Zantesuken (PGLas), Onion Blade, Quicksilver, Sibly Crescent #2......figured it was more fun just to run randoms since "hoping" for a rare on a specific weapon makes me frustrated b/c RNG. At this point I hit the dmg cap on just about all of my dps so its all good!

    PS - Onion Blade is pretty sweet - didn't even realize I was about to get that STMR. (atk 160 + 30% atk/def/mag/spr)

    Got zero rares (so far). Even the 15% rolls drop count is horrible - even a clumsy woodcutter would be able to count it on one hand!

    The "rare" abilities are not the rarest abilities. They are much easier to get than refresh2, for example. I've been keeping track of my IW results for a while now; I'll see if I can tabulate a chart of rarity. But I bet ATK 15% is rarer than the rare.

    I must’ve used up all my luck on the last item world. I ended up with 7 rares last time. But this time I’m at 0 rares and 250k points. I even used an stmr moogle on Crimson Butterfly just for iw

    I had a big backlog of weapons to run through Item World this time around and I was a bit bored from being stuck in quarantine. So I blew through all of the orbs I had on hand plus some lapis. Results varied but - in context - were overall positive.

    Rares obtained on: Black Sparky, First Nirvana, Spirit Lance, Kagenui, Judgment Staff, Dynamo Dagger, and Beloved Edel.
    Not obtained on: Holographic Transceiver, Crimson Butterfly, Asura's Rod, Ancient Sword, Sword of the Father, Lunar Eclipse Rod, Terra's Sword, and Artemis Bow. [Going to be working on Artemis Bow on and off until maintenance as I want the rare on it for use on my 2nd Levinson.]

    So 7 rares and for the most part the rares all rolled reasonably well. But I'm at 977,100 points at the moment. That is ~76 runs, give or take as I terminated some runs at round 10 to save on orbs.The supposed average is 1:12 IIRC (could be mistaken) and I usually end up at around 1:10, so 1:7.8 runs isn't bad at all for this batch.

    All that said: The rare enchants came extremely asymmetrically. For example, one weapon took a single run (Kagenui), another took 3 runs (Dynamo Dagger), and the two guns (Beloved Edel and Black Sparky) accounted for over 450,000 points evenly split between the two of them. I did Beloved Edel and Black Sparky first because I was most excited about them...and then almost gave up completely out of frustration. Gumi really, really needs to put in some sort of safety net for bad streaks.

    Around 300 or 350 orbs spent this week (490k points).
    Not a single rare drop. Not one.

    I'm sorry. This is not RNG.

    This is fraud.

    Plain and simple.
