well. i always hated the 2nd job quest. but one thing that has changed is the drop of the swords. but that was after DK came out. when game 1st started it took like 250 frags to get 10 swords or seals. now takes me 150 at max to get all 10 seals/swords. what is most annoying for me is not the swords but the frags. now you get 7 frags at max. i used to be able to get 15 frags max on full before revamp x.x the revamps are alright but i still perfer the original. Imo nothing has to be buffed just nerfed.
on the other subject about the rumors. just lol. the golem i believe you just have to hunt 1 extra golem out off the rush route. the last hit thing is semi-true. but now i just solo coz with the new quest guide you know if the boss will drop or not soloing.
