Well idk bout you but i used to get 7 db's / hour in retail dbo.
In retail dbo popo boxes always had a db on them so you could just farm them there. Here it ain't like that making it kinda difficult to get the dragon balls.
Don't know how. I don't know anybody who would average that many, at least not on Taiwan.
One time I got 8 dragon balls in fear land (The map you teleport to from red map) And another time I remember getting 3 straight drops on Mushroom Map. However it more than balanced itself out, and these where VERY isolated incidents. Once level 70, your kind of stuck. There where only 5 channels on retail, and papaya island was always farmed.
This is coming from somebody who had all the dragon buffs and transformations on 3 separate characters, So I did more than my fair share of hunting.
Back to the point though, we either need an increase in the drop rate here or more sessions to farm.
Also I seem to remember that the popo box thing was more towards the end of the games lifespan. But I do admit I am little hazy on that. I also seem to remember that these dragon balls could be gained on top of the ones you could farm, making it possible to collect 2 full sets.
