    Expected and unexpected loot in my search for Assassin talismans

    Hi there fellow gamers!

    After my recent couple-of-hundreds-of-sand long journey into Kingdom of the Sands (Madness) to acquire the rumored and perhaps entirely mythological Assassin (Barrier) and Thief talismans I came to the following conclusions:

    1) I get loot I don't expect

    2) I don't get loot I expect.

    According to the drop info I can expect to get 2* blue evo runes, 2* rainbow evo runes, 2* blue evo shards, 2* rainbow evo shards, Assassin (Barrier) talismans and Thief talismans (and a couple of other talismans).

    I get 2* evo shards of every color, 2* and 3* evo runes of every color. But the reason for my grinding, the Assassin and Thief talismans, are nowhere to be found. I haven't gotten a single one of those!!!

    Is the 'Drop info' unreliable? Does it contain random text? If so, does anyone know of a map where I can actually get one of those sought after talismans?

    I can confirm they do actually exist. I have seen other players with them. I can also confirm that I was counting talismans on crucible of pain and powerslave, and a rare one dropped at about 1% of the time a talisman dropped. Yes 1/100 were rare. I can also say with certainty that they were more plentiful prior to August update. The assassin barrier in particular I have not received yet and I have collected probably 15 assassin shield talismans (which drop 1% of the time a talisman drops), to put things in perspective.
    All rare talismans were dropping on crucible of pain and powerslave FYI, but the rate is a bitter pill.

    I rotate between the red bat, hellhound, samurai, soldier, purple harpy, and Carriage Rider. Looking for active troopers with Eddie champion, or max talisman ally.

    thanks for sharing the information. i'm also farmin powerslave madness the whole week, to get the last energy augment, but no way in approx. 200 tries. so i guess your numbers of 1% of the talisman drops could be reasonable. but that would be way too low, if you ask me.

    at least the 3* evo runes drop there every once in a while...

    edit: yes the dropinfos has to be wrong, otherwise 3* evo runes wouldn't drop in powerslave madness... the devs should do something about this, when they finish the bugfixes

    Ok, thanks for sharing your experience. I think the drop rate is unnecessarily low for those talismans, it's not like we're looking for the Holy Grail is it? Well, back to grinding...

    I got 8 thief talismans from there when my level was lower. Lately - not a single one. There should be some kind of market to get rid unwanted but rare talismans and chars.

    I've recently had a number of Assassin talismans on Underworld (Hard), just farming in Soulless Demons.

    Yeah, but those are the ones giving you 15% of MR and Def on either ATK or Magic. The ones mentioned above give 10% of ATK to Magic and 10% of Magic on ATK. And the later ones are the more efficient ones were actually looking for. And they come as 2* already and are much harder to acquire. Im right now farming for them, too. And I can remember them dropping like crazy before and now seem to not drop at all. I have an assassin golden son who actually needs 6 of those bad boys, I have 3 already. I just cant seem to get the last 3 barrier ones... good luck trying.

    Yeah, I've found 5 of this talismans, they are extremely useful for true damage attacks.
    They give 15% of magic to attack and vice versa.
    But I'm trying hard to find 6th to make a second set - no success for 1.5 month.
    Maybe it's a better chance to found them on normal or hard difficulties, not madness? Because I've found them very early, before Sands of Time madness was available for me.

    I am very frustrated as well. I have been farming powerslave on madness since many days but not a single assassin talisman. Seriously why are so hard to get? They are not so special to be almost imposible to find.
