For a second I thought KI listened when the Catacombs came out. Sure we had to grind for those crystals and salts, but they did drop and eventually you had enough to craft a piece or two. But now we're back to square one. No one is getting the Karamelle Chunks and crafting any gear has grinded to a halt.
      Totally agree, and it seems a guaranteed drop after X runs (assuming X was a reasonable number) might be a viable alternative to the grind towards nothing. I seem to get an entire page of random trash drops after every boss in Karamelle, and while they do typically sell well on the gold side, I'd rather get fewer items with better stuff. Almost worse than the tedious nature of the other farming spots, as initially we weren't even sure if chunks existed.

      Chunks seem low, but I've had luck with about 1 per 5-8 ish runs of that tower in the candy corn farm. Pretty annoying to run up the 5 floors or whatever though, so not even sure if I'll craft anything with those.

      @Eric Stormbringer just confirmed in this thread that Uwe is dropping those Karamelle Chunks and it's a 1 floor, 1 fight room. I've done Uwe several times. Even a bad team (like one you might get in a team up) can beat him in 2-3 rounds. I'm going to run it this weekend and do some testing on the drop rates. Thanks

      Think I remember those drops from right when all of this stuff came out a few months back. Been farming Uwe the past week with @Yuna and some others, and I've probably done about 2 dozen runs give or take a few for 0 chunks. Heidi's also a one round option that seems to drop semi regularly if you want to test that (doesn't have the mobs before it, so might be quicker depending on if you solo or team up).

      Sometimes, I've wished we had a farming check box system where we could check boxes for stuff we do not want as drops like seeds, housing, lower level gear, TC's, etc.. Sometimes - maybe most of the time - I would get absolutely nothing (silence) after a boss fight, but I'd know if I hear that standard drop noise after a fight win I'd just received something I wanted. LOL. Never happen!

      Eric do you trust they tell you the truth? Most likely improved drop rate is from 0.001 to 0.002. When improved rates truly happen it spreads through the community much like changes to Morganthe drop rate many years ago, which I'd say they lowered somewhat again. We saw Headless Horseman and Reindeer Knight drop rates massively increased compared to other Loremaster drop rates, a couple of years ago and it is/was noticeable. KI alter drop rates down once word spreads this, that or the other drops well and KI lies.

      Whether it's believed or not an independent user confirmed that he has been seeing increased drop rates. I also asked @KingNothing to relay his experiences with farming for chunks as well. While 2 users isn't much to go by it will at least give some idea of where things are. I will probably also farm Uwe since some of those crafted wands do have some pretty neat particle effects and report back my findings.

      I will hop on and farm this boss with 4 wizards and let you know how I do
      @Eric Stormbringer I am up to my fifth round quad boxing and I have yet to get a Chunk. However, I am getting a lot of the school spellments.
