i tried to train at Lake of Oblivion for like an hour and only got like 15% EXP...
i have 300k range with all of my buffs which i heard is enough to start training in the Lake of Oblivion, but it seems like its not worth it. also, i got 0 nodestones after that one hour of killing mobs there which is weird cuz i heard people usually get like 4 per hour there. am i doing something wrong?

Maybe it's your arcane force, that you have to build up?

Imo I think it's best to train at Vanishing journey in order to get nodes and your arcane force up.

Maybe you have a low drop rate which is why you're not getting any nodes?

Noone really does this but I stayed at Kiritas until like level 206 because when VJ just came out all the maps there were super laggy for me so I stayed at Kiritas.

I got like 2-3 nodes per hours with a 65% drop rate =_= on 2x. Zzzz

I think the alternative to not training at vanishing journey would be at scrap yard? Not sure which map there is the best though cause I never went there to train.

I played my corsair to 210 pre Vanishing Journey nerf and it was getting roughly 1-3 nodestones per hour. They are rare drops.

You'll just have to suck it up and deal with it to 210, when you hit 210 you unlock Chu Chu island and the mobs are worth 2.5x as much exp there.

It's normal that you don't get any or not many nodestones with zero to low amount of drop rate.

There is no guarantee that you will find them even if players may find some, it's still all about luck.

VJ used to be just a fine training area until they nerfed the exp in Override. I think, after low range players complaint that it was too hard, that they lowered the HP. When Nexon does this, they stick to that logic HP:EXP ratio. If you increase the HP, the EXP should increase too, vice versa.

So they lowered the mob HP along with lowering the EXP which kills the training area pretty much. They don't think about the consequences. Arcane River was suppose the new 'alternative' training for level 200+ with great EXP. But by nerfing it they just put another obstacle.

A funded player lv205 who could just 1HKO the mobs, can still do it after the nerf, but it's just the EXP that sux.

It opens up a more accessible area for the unfunded players? But the exp is much lower than before. And Chu Chu Island is still the same, so once the players with same low funding reaches 210, they would still struggle at the next area. Sure they got some Arc Force by then.

Back to nodestone drop rate:
I hunted approx one month with just greed pendant with a drop rate line all my perfect nodes. I'm not sure how many nodestones I opened at that time. But after I enhanced the equipped nodes, they got to like level 11~12.

But yea you can get 0~4 node per hour, so just because someone said they got 4 it doesn't mean everyone gets that amount.

I made drop gear in March and I had bad days too with my drop gear. I know players who got 50~60 during 2x events while I had bad results, I don't remember the exact amount, could be something like 15-20, which is too low with drop gear. And a buddy who didn't have drop gear found 28 that event.

But yea last time I farmed was before Override and I got 70-80 during 2x event of 3 hours.

While we can make an estimation of how many nodestones we can get per hour, it's completely unknown how many symbols you may get.
