That gifts have extremaly low drop rate. Both ears have better drop than gifts, because i didn't collect ears in previous years, so i can compare it easily. Doing over 200 jobs I collected only 5 gifts. Drop rate is something about 2-3%. It is lower than usual, which was between 5-10%.Drop rate is the same as it always has been, depending on what you may consider ''usual''
Thank you for letting us know how it is not worth the effort to complete the new questline, wish it would have been known ahead before even one second was wasted on it.
hard to believe, but is seems someone decided that clicky events should be even more annoying. Having only 10 items drop per quest step is not pleasing or entertaining, when the step contains something else like dueling or adventures that shouldn't be mandatory. It looks like when it gets to .net my toons there will ignore the whole thing entirely, unless I see some sort of wonderful payout here in beta to make it work the trouble.
absolutely ok if quests are challenging.
but the drop rate is much too low. 6 duells or six hours of work, fine, but another 200-300 15sec jobs are too much.
... my opinion...
