Dungeon Drop Rates Decreased?

Does anyone else feel like drop rates have been.. tampered with? For a while now (ever since chains?) it seems like good drops from dungeons and such are almost nonexistent. Used to see stuff drop fairly frequently but between me and some of my friends we've run hundreds of Phantasm, ADV HM dungeons, some Alban as well yet nothing seems to drop anymore. Yeah it's all RNG but it seems even worse than it used to be, used to see stuff drop fairly regularly and now nothing. Has anyone else noticed this? I've had a few people say they've noticed it so I'm curious.

    Personally, I've been getting surprisingly good drops from dungeons solo. That being said, I'm not doing Phantasm, or Advanced HM. :P

    Also doesn't mean it hasn't been tampered with. It's just what I've experienced.

    Well only worth of phantasm would be the robe, weapon is worthless now since its not the strongest weapon anymore :P

    All that grind only for a weapon that got outdone by another that does not need to take a lifetime to get...

    Unrelated to dungeons, but I've been getting more material drops from Shadow Missions lately and I never got those prior to a month ago. O-o

    Only tangentally related to the topic at hand, but I do wish that either Lorna or the Adventurer Seal Shop had those 2x Drop Rate potions for sale.
    Though that's just monster drops, and not chest drops, it would still be kind of nice.

    I've killed dozens of Hellhounds in the last few weeks; no skulls. Good thing I'm spamming Math for common leather anyway, otherwise I might be cross about it. You know how it is with Nexon reported chances for things: at best it's nearish what is stated but always on the disappointing side of the percentage.

    Sorry when i said outdone i was thinking of drop rate although this is a weapon to get if your not willing to spend a lifetime to get Soluna blade.

    The Divine blade is to go for if your looking for the 2nd best 2 handed sword in the game. Does have that smash and dura loss reduction bonus to make the weapon slightly better than Soluna. Although with the amount of grind for a damn single weapon that does not really do all that much for the needed grind makes it outdone by the divine blade by how easy it is to get compared to Soluna blade.

    But if you still like to try to get that sword....Good luck, is my word.

    I feel like there's been more leather than ever for drops.

    I'm disappointed in the Loot Tables for the harder dungeons. Especially Phantasm where all 4 chests have nothing but pure white powder. - the stuff you get from EVERY ALBY RUN. Like seriously? I'm glad we get Upgrade stones, but can at least ONE chest have a 100% Material Drop for the Soluna or Destruction robe? Getting the passes is a Pain already- there should be at least 1 "Rare Material Reward" in a 4-person Raid of Phantasm.

    divine blade isn't even close to soluna, soluna has nearly 200 more max damage on it.

    @Helsa: not sure if you just mean that you've run Math a lot, but just in case, the Hellhound skull is a drop from the end chest, not from Hellhounds themselves. I played Math Adv with 3 players a few days back and got a hellhound skull so it's possible. It used to require a 3-player run, and while it is probably true that you can now acquire one on a solo run, why not appease the goddesses and run with 3 just to increase your odds?

    Regarding leather drops, I have been Rank 1 Ingredient Hunting for a long time and I am not seeing any noticeable increase in leather drops. Maybe Ingredient Hunting has ranked a few times and are starting to notice the benefits?

    Doesn't CP affect the drop-rate? The higher your CP compared to the monster, the drop rate decreases. However, the material dropped by the monster is affected by skill rank unless that monster had always dropped leather or something, CP will affect it in this case.

    yeah but you also said

    >makes it outdone by the divine blade
    >smash and dura loss reduction bonus to make the weapon slightly better than Soluna

    You can't say it's 2nd best, then "It outdoes soluna" without confusing people.

    I did point out this quote: "Sorry when i said outdone i was thinking of drop rate although this is a weapon to get if your not willing to spend a lifetime to get Soluna blade.
    "

    I can already see it misleading but I did believe at least some of you to read a bit closely tho I overestimated I suppose? But yea this is my bad, I still stand that Divine blade is 2nd best :)

    This is in regards to end chests, I believe....
