This has been brought up among many of the arena parties that I have been in:
Though we have a bonus honor event, people have been wondering if it were possible for the GMs to turn on a sort of "Double Drop" event. Like instead of getting 1 items from arena, the person gets 2.
Some believe this to be a good idea to have an event such as this on a weekend where there is no campaign or showdowns meaning that nothing serious would be missed.
This would go nicely along with a bonus honor event.
Consider it an accident when I don't farm your COM.
