Item Drops are common in Phoenix Rising Online.
In any server, it is possible for random high grade items to drop anywhere on the map. In most cases, it will be plainly visible, and shouldn't be hard to see. Rarer items are much harder to see however. If all players completely leave a server, then the dropped items will be removed, if no players picked them up.
All that is needed is the user needs to be playing online. Drops do not appear in Single Player. Any servers marked as "Official" have a higher chance of receiving drops. User Hosted Servers and Private Lobbies may periodically receive drops but the chance is low.
The Narwhal's Tusk blade drops once in a random area after 100 players have been slain in PvP combat, each 100 equals another drop.
