they changed % drop chance guys its mucher lower now because they dont want ppl to get the epic and/or the epic + version to easy
Seems like the drop rate is lower this time. I'm having a much harder time getting the crystals (and I have better armor than before!). Very frustrating.
This may be a coincidence, but this worked for me pretty well this past mode (just got the 16th crystal this morning). If a level was being stingy, aka played it five times and no drops, I would play it through once or twice and NOT finish the boss with a power attack. I usually got fragments from those times. Then I would switch back to finishing the boss with a power attack once I had two fragments and it would drop them pretty quickly.
Additionally as a point of strategy, I would always work on two levels at the same time until I get to Kingdom of Darkness. So for example, if I already had 6 crystals, my main level would be Writing Cascades, which I would do two battles on, but I would also do a battle at Guardians crossing. That way if one level is being stingy I can still make progress on the other.
Finally, I only use my friends for heroic mode now. Even if you just get the regular version it is still way better than anything you get from the epic boss.
What do you think?
