    Default Chondritic Planar Dust - Drop Rate needs tweaking (again)

    I know crafting recipes have drastically reduced the amount of Dust needed but I have not seen one Dust drop from a Planar Creature since the update yesterday. To compare:

    Pre-Update doing the 4 Zone Dailies to close Rifts (so closing 8 Rifts total) would net me between 20 and 30 Dust.

    Post-Update doing the same quests did not give me any Dust from Planar Creatures. 2 Rifts out of 8 gave me 1 Dust as a reward for closing the Rift.

    Is this intentional? If so... can we PLEASE reconsider (again)? Going from 3 to 4 dusts per Rift on average to 0 makes the desire to actually close Rifts very unattractive.

    I'm pretty sure it's broken, I've had zero dust drop in the last 3 days and closed lots of rifts.

    No more drops from planar IAs also. Few drops form only major rifts, no drops from minor rifts.

    Unhappy Nothing

    I haven't had one drop from Rift mobs in last few weeks.
    Used to get a few Dust from closing a Rift but got nothing for weeks now.
    Seen plenty of lesser essences on AH but haven't had any of those for a while either.

    Kinda makes it not worth closing Rifts... in this game of Rifts

    Dust drops dying coincided with the "no more planar loot" fix for the Ashenfell chronicle. It's possible whatever table they edited affected all planar mobs.

    A friend of mine pointed it out to me on the day of that patch.

    Also, it ought to be available in the Rift store (unless I cannot find it) - I noticed Dust of the Void has been removed from the store too

    i'd like to bring the devs attention up there once again
    it's furthermore unbeliavable that 1 chondritic planar dust costs 15 platinum at the moment
    i'm refusing to believe that this is intended
    please fix drop rate, or increase minions drop rate
