      Yes, you read it right! You’d get points depending on your Knowledge grade and this will have an influence on your item drop rate in overall, but not when you are in a party.

    What is Yona's droprate?

      level 1 Meii


      I can’t really say anything exactly because item drops would be different for everyone, but people say its drop rate isn’t that low. There are some people who say they just got one (based on 1 hour of grinding), and some say they got 6.
