How this is supposed to actually be, I can’t tell. But there are several things wrong at the moment regardless. I’m not sure when this began. I assume with the latest update. I had to take a few looks because if it’s what it seems, I’m really suprised I haven’t seen somebody bring this up. (And if they did already… whoopsie.)
The menu that shows the gear available on a stage is either incorrect, inaccurate, or something else. Messed up one way or another for sure. All chapters after 7 now show they drop shirts, gloves and other low end gear that didn’t usually drop on later stages. The problem is after several attempts these don’t seem to actually drop, unless they are extremely less common do to the larger pool of available loot. Regardless, even if it is just rare, when you go into the inventory and click on shirts, it only displays that the highest stage it drops on is 7.7 as per usual. So either the new locations need to be added in the menu in the inventory, or the display of the affected gear needs to be removed from the “found in this stage”, or… the rate needs to be adjusted. Whatever the problem is exactly, there is one, no doubt, one more severe than the others.
I’m not trying to be over assertive when I say this… but people do spend and/or use cans to farm the world map. Especially if they can get Liliths and heavily consumed gear like shirts and gloves on the same stage, as the current state of the menu says. So… don’t handle this softly.
