How to Use Enhanced Drop Rate in Wuthering Waves?

“Wuthering Waves” is a popular action RPG that has captivated players with its intricate gameplay mechanics and engaging progression systems. One of the key features in the game is the Enhanced Drop Rate system, which significantly impacts how players farm for valuable in-game items known as Echoes.

This guide will delve into the specifics of the Enhanced Drop Rate, how it works, and strategies to maximize its benefits in Wuthering Waves.

What is the Enhanced Drop Rate?

The Enhanced Drop Rate is a weekly bonus system designed to help players farm for specific high-value Echoes, particularly the Overlord/Calamity Class echoes, which are 4-cost items. This system increases the base drop rate of these Echoes 15 times per week, making it easier for players to obtain the items they need.

How Does the Enhanced Drop Rate Work?

The Enhanced Drop Rate resets every week on Monday at 4:00 AM server time. This means that players have a fresh set of 15 chances to benefit from the increased drop rate each week.

However, there have been reports of a bug where the Enhanced Drop Rate does not reset for some players, particularly those whose Data Bank level is not maxed out (level 20).

Drop Rate Mechanics

The Enhanced Drop Rate significantly boosts the chances of obtaining high-level Echoes. Specifically, it increases the drop rate to around 20%, compared to the base rate of approximately 6%.

However, it is important to note that the Enhanced Drop Rate does not affect the rarity of the dropped Echo, which is determined by the player’s Data Bank level.

How to Use Enhanced Drop Rate in Wuthering Waves?

To make the most effective use of the Enhanced Drop Rate, players should aim to use all 15 chances at the start of every week. This strategy ensures that they can farm the Overlord/Calamity Boss Echoes their characters need the most.

Once all 15 chances are utilized, the drop rate reverts to the normal amount.

The Enhanced Drop Rate becomes particularly relevant at higher Data Bank levels. Before reaching level 15, there is little point in using the Enhanced Drop Rate strategically, as any 4-Star Echoes obtained will eventually be replaced by 5-Star Echoes.

Therefore, players should focus on leveling up their Data Bank by finding as many Echoes as possible and completing Milestone and Guidebook missions, which grant significant amounts of XP.
