    Yeah I understand it was a little too easy to get platinum thru the ratmen spawn, but we were doing the Succi spawn, and got halfway thru the spawn and not one person got a coin? Seems a little too nerfd. What is it now? For every 500 dragons u kill you might get 1? Yes the butt-hurt is a little strong in me right now. Thinking you killed Champ Spawns

    The chance to earn a platinum coin when killing a dragon linked to a champion spawn before the patch was 1 in 100. After the patch it is 1 in 50. The lower 2 tiers of monsters had their chances reduced, the upper tiers were increased. Before the patch there was no gradient for difficulty, after the patch it is scaled to the difficulty of the monsters.

    That said you have to be within 10 tiles of the monster when it dies to qualify for the bonus.

    Yes, It was causing people to simply farm the spawn a bit, leave, wait for it to reset, and then repeat. We wanted to reward players for the duration of a champion spawn, just not at that level.

    The goal being an engaged player can earn 3-6 platinum working the spawn, and another 6 as their part of the kill on the champion.

    Cool, good stuff. Nice to see too that the champ spawn monsters have a higher platinum rate, from start to finish, than their vanilla counterparts.

    I'd think this would *increase* the amount of people doing these spawns, at least those doing so with the intention of finishing, which seems like a good change.
