    The Monster Book is nice but lacks any real use case other than being a stamp collector (unless there is functionality I’m not aware of).

    It’s cool that we can see what items monsters drop once reaching 5/5 cards, but people can easily check the ML Library for drop tables so it’s not much use.

    Idea: upon completing 5/5 on a monster set and unlocking their drop table in the monster book, allow users to select items to “hunt” from that specific mob. My original thought was select up to 3 items per mob, but even 1 would be nice.

    If an item you are hunting for drops from that mob, either a chat notification pops up saying one dropped, or maybe make it shine like a gach ticket.

    Why it could be helpful:

    For those occasions you’re grinding but not 100% focused on the game itself. Maybe you’ve got a show running on the side, or snacking, chatting with friends etc. whatever the reason. And if you’re killing mobs with ultimates, it can be easy to miss a drop if you’re not focused or looting everything immediately. Also, this would give some legitimate functionality to the monster book.

    Ah so like how vote cash tickets get notified? I could see the QoL value in that, I really like it.

    I'd wonder how the UI for that would be made, though.

    This would be really cool.

    maybe something easier to code would be another version of Pet Item?
    • Similar to No Pick up, you can have it be item locator instead?
    • So that your pet says something whenever it sees your selected item drop

    Oh boy, do I have some good news for you!

    There's a great ring that gets stronger and gives more stats, HP, and MP as you collect more monster book sets.

    I think OP was referring to the usefulness of the card system itself, not the benefits a ring gives due to collecting said cards.

    I do find its value as an in-game monster manual to be pretty nifty. Maybe outdated because the internet has all the answers these days(also the Library exists), but I always value the option of being able to look at a card you've completed and read its stats and drop table.

    But I kinda get OP's point, most people end up just ignoring the card system, even after collecting a ton of cards.

    Sometimes y'all truly sound like you think you're making suggestions to a team of developers that actually have access to the game in ways that game devs do :^)

    I lack any knowledge on what is possible for the dev team to do with the client. All I can do is make suggestion threads on the forum and hope someone with more technical knowledge can determine if the idea is possible or not. Your needless condescending comments bring nothing to the table here.

    Since there's these 2 pet equip items available, it maybe easier to code...

    But not sure if it'd be possible. Most likely that's up to our hardworking Staffs' Decision :heartbeat:


    A combo of these 2 pet equips' coding, but modified:

    upload_2022-4-10_12-13-17.png upload_2022-4-10_12-13-51.png


    So it'd probably be a Pet Equip called Item Finder:
    • Select the Item that you want your pet to notice when it Drops
    • Pet will notify you with their Msg Bubble (similar to messages that pops up when you feed it or give it commands)

    This would probably take a few hours to code, and maybe a few more hours for testing and verification of any potential issues that could pop up in-game.
    (I'm just guessing LOL)

    Super creative, love the idea! The suggestion seems to have gotten mostly positive feedback, would be cool to see how it could be implemented, if it is possible.

    My original thought was related to how chat notifications pop up when someone opens a coin pouch in a boss zone. Have a notification pop up if an item you’ve selected to hunt in the monster book drops.
