I suspected that the drop rates for deeds in adventure boards were adjusted with 4.8
@Ashasekayi data collecting supports that theory
Deeds - Discussion and Critique
The question is why would they lower (justify) the drop rate adjustment?
That was implement in January 2020 and I think we only had a couple actual “Special Adventures” which did offer a lot of deeds.
It appears the Special Adventures may not be coming back. At the very least St. Patrick’s day and Easter didn’t happen. (Easter was actually mentioned as a planned… Though not guaranteed… Event)
Why am I going off when 4.8 was implemented instead of 4.7.5?
Because at the time of 4.7.5 I don’t believe the devs thought to or at least bothered to adjust the drop rate to balance out deeds with the “planned” special adventures.
So they rebalanced the deed drop rate to offset these special events with patch 4.8
Somewhere between now and then the idea of Special Adventures has been abandoned (it appears). Based on our limited data. It doesn’t seem like the rebalance has been…well…rebalanced.
I brought this up before as a potential bug.
I no longer think it is bugged. I think the deeds were intended to be rebalanced. With the removal of special adventures either temporary or permanently. The change can no longer be considered a rebalance but is instead a Nerf to deeds in adventure boards.
I don’t believe that at least 1 imperial deed adventure task a week is too much to ask for. Even if they have to manually be put in the Monday after a week where there’s been a deed drought.
