  1. As of 6/1/2016, it seems to drop only one at a time (though the warp/travel window still shows it as a 2x-drop in the possible rewards). I have records from a few weeks ago of it dropping two at a time, so this is a recent change. Glitch maybe? Keep an eye out to see if it changes back eventually.
