    Default Drop rate of dimension items in IPP

    Ok, I am in love with Icewatch Outpost, I really am, it isn't easy to decorate due to the lack of good snowy things (I know the lists of items).

    This brings me to my point, the drop rate of dimension items in IPP is broken and has been since the end of Fae Yule. I have achieved killing 5,000 cultists in IPP in the past month (not kidding, I have the achievement). Not a single item has fallen of ANY kind for dimensions. Not a single item has been on the AH that dropped from a mob of any kind there. I have messaged the people who have put up the one snowy house on the AH in a month, and the snowy fern clumps that have appeared. They told me they were cleaning house and forgot they had them and had gotten them a long time ago.

    I understand dimension items shouldn't rain on folks. I am ok with the tedious slaying of thousands of creatures to get one item, I played WoW, I'm used to it, but I am not ok with no one getting dimension items.

    I thought I'd bring it up in the hope that a dev takes a gander at it and see if someone forgot to uncomment a line of code after Fae Yule.

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    I've also had items drop in other zones, but not IPP. It *is* rather strange, and I truly hope it's not a glitch.

    I should have mentioned that I have gotten dimension items in other zones too, but IPP seems to have dried up

    Probably a stupid question but... are you mentoring down?

    You can also get some snow-laden stuff from doing the fishing quests in IPP. It's not ideal, obviously, but it's better than nothing at all.

    I haven't been mentoring down, I've been cutting a swath around the region (as long as no one is trying to quest there) in the hopes that something, anything will drop.

    If you think mentoring down would help I'll try but I have asked every person I have run into who is the right level if they have gotten a dimension item drop, asked them to mail me or message me, if they find anything and they all came back with,"Are you sure dimension items drop here?"

    I don't have problems getting things to drop in other zones. And I have gotten about as many snowy fishing rewards as you can get without looking like a fleet of fisherman died in my dimension.

    I have never mentored down to farm world dimension drops before. And am still getting items everywhere else except IPP.

    I'm so sorry, but this made me burst out laughing. Snowy rowboats FTL.

    I have never, not one time, gotten a dimension item to drop in IPP. Mentored or not, humanoids, animals, elementals, it makes no difference. I can go into any other zone and, while I might not get the item I'm after, I will at least get something to drop.

    For me, even fishing drops are few and far between, unless I'm just picking the rare fish to turn in for boxes. Fishing for boxes has devolved into wasted lures. My RNG has never been good, but the drop rates here have just gotten beyond horrible to nonexistent.

    I found the ipp drop rate was bad in the first place but that is just awful

    Sorry about this.

    The dimension item drops accidentally got disconnected when we made our recent changes to Iron Pine Peak.

    Thank you for pointing it out, and we're getting it fixed ASAP.

    Hey maybe give it a poke and make the items drop a little bit not so rarely to hehe. For no other reason then just because you love us and we love you.

    Thank you SO, SO much, I appreciate you looking into it and to know I am not crazy (about this anyway).

    Hi All,
    I am new to Rift and have really been enjoying the dimension end of the game. I have been working on the new Icewatch dim and have been trying to collect some of the world drops for it and notice its almost impossible...like the burning fireplaces dropped in ipp. I believe the thread above now explains why or no?....Are they really just that rare?

    Welcome to the addiction. They are rare but not as rare as they have been.

    Ahh, that explains it
    I thought I was just incredibly unlucky when trying to farm for the lit fireplaces

    I don't think the lit fire is rare for me. Just since the no dropping of items at all in IPP. I seem to get it as often as any other items when the drops are working.
