Some recent changes were made to exploring rates, making some encounters seem harder to find, as well as being more selective about common, uncommon, and rare items. Minipets have also been reduced.
This is to balance out the flow, exploration should feel exciting when you get that rare resource, or when you come across an encounter, they should not all feel so common. Encounter reductions were also reduced to make Totems more appealing and useful.
As always, we value your feedback on these changes!
