So I've heard that the new super rare encounter with the Mysterious Stranger doesn't automatically drop the Solaris app and has a chance to drop Dry Bones...

This is simply unacceptable when Dry Bones are so common and easy to get, especially when the encounter itself has such a low drop rate. Please remove Dry Bones as a reward for the encounter so only the app reward is given.

Edit: According to Xylax's tumblr, the encounter also has the chance to drop a rare breeding item. So I'm editing this suggestion to remove the increased drop rate to just removing the db reward.

Edit 2: So the encounter, according to the wiki, gives up to 50DB, still not enough if you ask me but whatever. It also drops UAV and Human Liver. So there are several commonish rewards and 2 rare ones on a super rare encounter. At the moment, I've gone through maybe 11 energy bars and haven't encountered the mysterious stranger. The droprate seems to be as low as the Interstellar droprate and it needs to be increased if the chance of getting a common prize is higher than getting the app or the rare breeding item.

Edit 3: My hot take on this:

Remove Human Liver as a reward. Demand for it is basically non-existent. It sells for 400 SB currently if you even manage to sell it. And with three pages worth of it for sale, I don't view that as worthwhile.

Remove the Broken Drone as a reward. They give what? 20 XP and sell for like 150 SB? For a rare encounter, it's kinda weirdly placed.

Up the Dry Bones encounter to at least 100. It's a rare encounter. At least if you don't get the app or breeding item, you get *something* for finding it. 100 Dry Bones is half a Maneater stud fee, x2 Tracking Herds, x20 trains for your Adols in Vulture Chase, 1/3 of a GoP, and 1/6 of a Buff Balls.

Currently, the rewards basically give you a chance of being given junk. Not exactly making me excited to see what I get if I find the encounter.

Edit 4: Even though it's on the wiki, here's the rewards the encounter gives.
+20 Dry Bones
+UAV Search and Rescue
+40 Dry Bones
+50 Dry Bones
+Human Liver
+Solaris (app)
+Secret breeding item

Open to other people's suggestions, comment why you don't support. Though I don't see why anyone wouldn't support this.

Unamused with the people voting no support.
Do you realize that a super rare encounter not giving the app and giving currency instead is redundant, right?
According to chatbox, the encounter gives 20db also. Only 20. I find 100-200db a day, we have plenty of DB encounters, we don't need a rare encounter that's supposed to drop a rare app to drop DB, especially if we might go all month and maybe only find one of the encounter.

I’d maybe say change it from 20db to 100db rather than dropping it. it should be rare, but you have a point that it’s redundant for being low

you should still really be thankful for what you do get. the admins didn’t have to make this at all for us if they didn’t want to

I am thankful for what we get, but when we already have so many db encounters, I'd rather get the rare items from a rare explore encounter instead of common currency I can get anytime in larger quantities. I appreciate you leaving a reason for not supporting though.

The problem with this encounter is for starters it's already rare- people saying they've spent 15+ energy bars trying to even get the encounter. Then there's THREE options to get different amounts of DB, human liver, uav or broken drones, Solaris (rare) or a super rare breeding item(?) Soooo.... I can already see people not even running into this guy, then you might not even get the app if you get lucky enough to run into him ONCE. Who knows how hard this is to get.

maybe only remove the 20-40 db reward and the broken drone reward?

60 is a reasonable consolation gift tbh

that and the broken drone reward irks me to no end

broken drone isnt a rare item. why give it to a rare explore encounter? its like telling you "fuck off don't look for me again"

unless it's not as rare as we think it is (after last month's interstellar encounter only having maybe 400 drops, doubtful), it's pretty ridiculous that not only is it not guaranteed that we'll get the app, but there are seven possible outcomes for the encounter. according to the wiki, they are "In order most common at the top to rarest at the bottom:
+20 Dry Bones
+UAV Search and Rescue
+40 Dry Bones
+50 Dry Bones
+Human Liver
+Solaris (app)
+Secret breeding item"

i'm not sure if the "secret breeding item" is an entirely new item to the game or just something like a lion scrotum, but everything else is sort of an insult to the (presumed high) rarity of the encounter

I don't think it's a new item. It would be in the item catalogue if it was. And pretty sure Xy confirmed in chat either earlier today or yesterday it wasn't new!

omfg im sorry, i probably confused people. i cannot spell for the life of me

I'm fine with they way it is. It's super rare but I feel link I've got a better chance at it then any of the raffle lioness bases.
