Seriously what gives? 

Best advice I can find is abort after phase 1.  Ticker 99.99% of the times only sell Training & Shelter.

Every Prime weapon or warframe I have farmed has seemed fair even the grinder one.  I would rather start again collecting all of these than do one more level 3 phase 1.

To be stuck on 99000 standing being forced to repeat over & over with a drop chance that has to be broke.  Cannot remember exactly but believe I have had 00.1.2% or something extreme with a better drop chance.  I now need 12 of these Medical bonds?

Reading online it seems this has been since launch of Fortuna.

Why has this not been addressed?  IMHO this is a bad mechanic, suggestions and YouTube videos outlining aborting at phase one shows this.   

Any more advice anyone can give me would be really truly appreciated.  I was loving this game up to this point but man o man these Medical Bonds are driving me crazy.

Should have done bounties for standing. Never had a problem with them.

Did the medical debt bonds and at first hated that I needed 13 of them. But then start doing only bounties that gave medical for common reward and checked with Ticker got them in less than a day and still had more standing to grind. 

Check the bounties and Ticker, if no medical do something else for a bit and then check again, that is how I did it.

This works? I tried cashing in oxium early and on the reward screen I got nothing. Was under the impression that selecting abort mission or leaving the conflict zone forfeited all mission rewards.

Ticker will always have one posting with a rare bond every cycle, usually medical. Bounties can also pay you medical debts in several stages so I dont know why youd abort either way. Throw your standing at something you dont have yet, instead.

Pretty sure everyone on Venus has free medical care as Medical Bonds are the hardest to find. 

That said, the only thing that worked for me is to spam the only bounty that gives medical bonds over and over again. A lot of rep was wasted since I was capped but nothing I could do about it.

Yes it does for the Bountys.

Every Time I checked they were not there.  Read online to check every half hour or so.  In between doing the lvl 3 bounties finally got 10 from Ticker.  After like 15-20 lvl 3 bounties finally got the last 2. 

Family, Advanced drop like crazy so defo something wrong with Medical.  Maybe something to do with lvl 3 being 3 phases with lvl 4-5 being 5.  Dunno, bet defo NOT a 20% chance.  10-15 drops of Family/Advance to 1 Medical?

Same, wish I had known all this before I started the grind!

To be clear, you do not want to ABORT -- aborting will send you to the orbiter and forfeit your rewards. What you want to do is return to Fortuna after completing the first phase.

My girlfriend recently started playing and we ran pretty hard into the Medical Debt-Bonds bottleneck. I dont think the drop rates are bugged as we seemed to get about the expected amount, but thats still roughly an expected 2+ hour grind to reach rank 3 with Solaris United to meet the sacrifice requirement for Medical Debt-Bonds unless you get some help from Ticker. And of course you can get unlucky so it could take even longer.

In my opinion, they should axe the basic resources from Stages 2 & 3 of the Tier 3 bounty to double the drop chance of Medical Debt-Bonds to 25%. Or if they feel like they need to keep those resources there as a booby prize then halve the drop rate of both the basic resources and Garuda Neuroptics for those stages. While this wouldnt dramatically increase the per-stage chance of getting debt-bonds, it would reduce the number of loading screens you have to endure to optimally farm the bonds. Its just dumb that youre so encouraged to stop the bounty after the first stage.

That, and I think that maybe a third of the common tier cases that Ticker offers should have their shelter debt bonds replaced with 2-3 medicals.

  • 2 weeks later...

Ive only gotten 4 medical debt bonds so far and ran the bounty that gives them at least 50 times and ticker hasnt been selling them for me. Makes me not wanna play since Ive been trying to rank up for almost 2 weeks now.

If that can help :

3rd bounty have a chance to reward medical debt bond during first 3 phases (20% on phase 1) so if you dont get at least 2 debt bonds over five bounties youre unlucky

Ticker has sometimes those, so go check every time you log in and log out (completely refreshes every 8 hours)

I dont remember having too much issue getting those maybe a week yes but I dont play much usually.

My best advice is to do other things aside if you really want to rank up asap and not burn out, like mining, fishing,conservation and buying debt bonds so you max out the ranking and prepare ressources for later ranks and everything needed in fortuna ie kitguns and moas for exemple require debt bonds for gilding.

Another tip: while it is usually most efficient to head back to Fortuna after Phase 1 of the third tier bounty, some of the Spy and Cache Recovery missions can be done very fast, particularly the mountain/outdoor cache recovery and the garage Spy mission. It is worth doing those if they come up since they can be done fast, even though the chance of getting debt-bonds is somewhat lower. The ones that take place in the Enrichment Labs take a bit longer though, especially cache recovery.
