Haven't gotten a rare drop in days
Posted 21 November 2012 - 04:24 PM
What am I doing wrong? I never had this issue before drop rates were supposedly 'fixed' last weekend. I also don't want to spend an hour trying to find a level 2 fractals group.
There's no way I could have any farming penalties on me, I don't play enough nor do I farm one area for a long time.

And the supposed drop rate fix in 55+ zones? I get 80 whites and blues, maybe a green. Nothing other than vendor trash or a salvage.

I'm afflicted with some kind of bad loot curse though, I'm probably not representative of the norm.

Kinda hard to have any concrete data on this. Although several of my items were from FotM and the Shatterrer this week.

I'm certainly seeing a lot fewer rares, as are the people I've grouped with for CS farming (pen/shelter for eg).
It's easy enough to notice that before the patch, in a 2 hour period I'd be getting 1-2 rares from every event on average throughout the whole 2 hours.
Now I barely get 1 rare every 3 events, even at the start.
So with the same chain, same group size, same style and same MF I've noticed a definite drop in loot :/
Question, feedback or issue? Pm me!

Older dungeons, I get a rare every 2 runs.
Field maps... field maps are garbage from what I experience.
BTW, i have ZERO magic find. zero.

Other than that though, yeah it feels like its gotten worse.

Yesterday I got an exotic and 2 rares, 2.5 hours effort.
The day before that I played 4 hours as well, 7 rares.
None of this counts the map rewards.
So, am I simply amazingly lucky or are you just amazingly unlucky? Only the masses can tell. Looking at the post so far it seems like some are getting better drops and some are getting worse, Fractals appears to be the place to go (though I've gotten zero in fractals), and Southsun Cove appears to be terrible. It could of course just be some whiners or some winners sharing their experiences.
I would like to point out though, and this is the naked truth: No MMO increases the drop chance with effort. A certain mob will have a certain chance of dropping something good, and that's regardless of how much time and/or effort it took you to kill it. This means that the champion you just spend 20 minutes on soloing, dying two times in the process, will still have the same chance to drop a blue for you as it had when 20 other people helped take it down, getting it done in 10 seconds flat. Just keep this in mind when thinking back on your droprate.
