Domain of Kourna Rewards/Experience

Even after the fix a lot of events or mobs in kourna don't drop experience or loot. And some only drop experience. Is there any design reason for this? Or is it a bug? For example the thorn wall event mobs drop experience but don't drop loot. However, any event that has joko loyalists in it do not drop loot or experience. I really like a lot of the events in Kourna (like the asura trying to save his old krewe, that was really fun ) but the rewards and experience seems so arbitrary so it can be frustrating doing content in Kourna. A lot of events that are similar to ones in Sandswept (like escort events) won't drop loot or experience. It seems odd that this map reward-wise is a lot worse than the other LS4 maps.

    It really sucks to do events and not feel rewarded for killing 20+ npcs, that at the end of the event you might get 2 blues and a green. Another one would be that the meta itself doesn't feel rewarding.


  • Yeah i agree. Also when doing a long event that drops not exp or loot I want to alt tab and do something else while other people complete the event. I feel that way because a lot of events don't reward the player for their time invested. For example the 5 minute of so wall defend event. That doesn't drop loot and I needed it for a collection. I wanted to just alt tab or do something else since I already had my beetle finished and no loot dropped from the mobs.

    I'd like to get an insight into why this is the case too, also why they don't drop karma with Karmic Retribution.

    Why have a 5 minute event with no loot or experience? What's the incentive to actually do these events when you'd be better off killing any non-event mobs for that time?

    It's a waste of player time, particularly on a map with the FTT series of achievements which needs a lot of drops to complete.

  • I wasn't aware that they didn't drop karma either...that makes it even worse lol. I also forgot the mobs don't drop volatile magic. Is this intended or a bug? I feel like when im doing an event in Kourna I might as well just istan farm instead because at least i know I"ll be getting loot/rewards.

    And you are right, with the FTT it makes it a lot worse. A lot of awakened inquest spawn for the cannon defend events and they don't drop loot or experience. That means no blueprints.

    I've found the only thing I really farm in Kourna is the map currency and that's mostly just because I want plague doctor's stuff.
