Lord’s Pet Drop Rate Improvements?

Share:

Yesterday we posted about the seemingly impossible drop rate of the Lord’s Pet in Tijuana [1]. If this item were not selected for a Mexico Mission, nobody would care. It was and the horrendously low drop rate deflated many players. The good news is that today many are reporting a noticeable increase. I tried my hardest to get the image below yesterday but those damn pets wouldn’t fall and I wasn’t going to click a couple hundred times for a screen shot. This one actually dropped when my Lockpick Bonus was active so I got 2!  Please let us know if you see any improvements from yesterday.

    Yep...
    I had two drop on my first click today. I thought it was the particular job i was hitting, since i had changed it up.
    I however, don't like it when Zynga waters down missions/events or extends timers.
    These things are what separates the dedicated players from the casual players and/or the people who exploit glitches to get an edge.
    There's NOTHING more frustrating than coming up with a strategy to finish an event in the time aloted, just to have it extended so EVERYONE WINS!!!!
    Without losers, there are no winners.

  3. Well, this at least proves that Zinga reads your blog ;-) Thanks for blogging about it. I had spend many hundreds of thousands of energy over many levels to get 13 out of 25 of those lordspet and the drop rates where very very low regardless of having the lockpick bonus on or not. Just now (12h30 eastern time) it took less than 30,000 energy to get the remainder to drop ( I did activate de lockspick and got many doubles). So Finaly that 2nd mission id done ;-)

  4. Drop rate HAS improved - I got 10 pets for mastering all 4 levels in Tijuana, then 8 for the first 2 days of the mission - today alone I got 13 already

  5. Yesterday morning I posted that the drop rate was about 1 in 50. I kept track through the remainder of the day and the rate averaged out to be the same over the course of the day. All in all, ended up with 11 pets in ~525 jobs (notice the tilde!). However, this morning they are dropping at over 75%! With the lock pick bonus on, I got the other 14 items in 11 jobs! Thanks Jennifer for making our plight heard!

  6. Yes.
    I got one pet in 24 hours. Then about 3 hours ago, they started dropping at the rate of at least one per energy run.

  15. I'm not a huge energy account but just had 5 drop from 17k of energy while crew was active so actually got 10 from one oversized set of juice...previously I was lucky to get 2 over a whole days worth of energy :)

  21. I posted this on the other post about the drop rate, but today I had a run of ~40 jobs and had 6 drop.

  22. Yesterday I was complaining that only one Lord's Pet had dropped from several million energy used. Today I get the other twenty four from around 250,000 energy. I call that a big improvement in the drop rate

    ReplyDelete
  23. I was close to give up but today they dropped with a very good drop rate. I was able to finish Mission Part 2 within short (I have only 23k energy).

  25. Only have 8k energy got all 25 in a day and a half using lock pick bonus and boss active so they must have adjusted the drop rate.

  26. drop rate for me was about 50% doing the first job.

    next moan will be about the drop rate for those geese :P

    ReplyDelete
  27. i've got six since job opened up . 2 yesterday. i've hit it about 20 times. today was my last try

  28. Any indication that x number of required drop are made available system wide per day or hour? I played another FB game and was on player advisory committee... developer admitted that only four of a certain very rare and coveted item were made available system wide per day. If the four items were nabbed by four lucky players in the first hour of a new game day, odds would not improve simply by playing more, or hitting a certain task more often.

  29. I got enough Lord's Pets. Now I need geese for the Low Blow mission. All day, no geese. Now I'm getting those dogs again, when I don't need them.

  30. 155k energy and 14 lord's pet so far
    still need 11
    11k to get one?
    for me it's not any improvement
    it's 1 pet for each time I lvl up cause 11k is my total energy

    ReplyDelete
  31. I was just seeking info on the Lord's Pet. Not a very high drop rate. I think I have 13 to go.
