    So what happened to the patch?

    Said an hour of downtime, yet it was back up in less than 5 minutes. Did you abandon the patch and just do another server restart like you did earlier this morning?

    Is it better to out-monster the monster or to be quietly devoured?

    There was two things, first was a maintenance, second was an update to "Resolves some Major Arkfall spawn issues ", but there was no patch (at least it's what was posted in Defiance Server Status).

    The server update is what I was referring to. There was no down time, it was up almost immediately. It's why I'm wondering if they abandoned the fix or gave the wrong info.

    And what exactly were they fixing? these vague server update and patch notes need to stop.

    Why do they need to tell you? though they said routine maintenance, so it could be as simple as some database backups and indexing, maybe some cache purging.

    And there were no patch notes, so not sure how they could be vague.

    I guess it was pretty fast to make the change, I guess they are searching for a good balance.

    Anyway, now minor arkfall can give 3 keys, and that's a good news

    Not sure how long it took them, but changes were definitely made.

    Major Arkfalls do seem more frequent. I've been seeing 2-3/hour
    Minor Arkfalls are MUCH more frequent and in more accessible areas, give up to 3 key codes, loot between phases buffed? I've picked up 3 blues when it's only ever been whites and greens.

    Between the keys and all the ark salvage, I've opened up 4 t4 boxes and 3 mod caches this morning.
