    Today I was farming titanite Chunks in New Londo Ruins from the Darkwraiths there.

    I just recently did a lot of farming there on another character.

    My first character is on NG++ and my second character is just on NG.

    Both characters had an Item Discovery of 350. (Ring + 1 humanity in stock).

    The difference in droprate is very noticable.

    My NG++ character gets around 2-4 chunks per run. This is very consistent. I never went a run without seeing one.

    My NG character gets on average 1 per run. I still haven't seen a run where I got 2, which is the minimum I get on my other characters. I have also gone several runs with getting zero chunks, which has never ever happened on my NG++ character.

    I know everyone is probably going to say that it's not a big enough sample and that I'm not seeing a pattern, but I'm going to start tracking on paper chunks/dark hands/slabs per run on each character and let you guys know the results. So we can have some exact numbers to compare it to.

    I have noticed a little bit of an improvement from 1st play, but i dont think it improves by a lot. I usually get more items because i have high humanity, but i drop the items because i get so many of them.

    Lol.... 4slabs in 3 hours, that seems like a big waste of time to me. Its a lot easier to have a good body give you slabs, but that it my opinion.

    There is an honest way to do things, and there is a way fueled by exploits and cheating. And one of those ways needs to be removed, and every char involved deleted.

    Also 4 slabs in 3 hours is amazing.

    Yeah, I think they do. I got two tridents just when I was normally going through the Duke's Archives. I did have 10 humanity on me. It was on NG+++++, I think.

    Sweet guys.

    I'll see if I can get numbers to make it official.

    I would like to see the wiki edited under New Game + to reflect this.

    I completely agree. I'm on NG7 as well and have noticed a slight increase in drop rate but I'm also carrying a lot more humanity than i did on just NG.
