I was curious if exotics drop of dragons? And if so does mf gear effect chest?
Can you get level 80 exotic drops?
How rare is an exotic drop?
What is the best place to get exotic drops?

With 100% map completion, I had only one exotic drop as well, from a spider in Orr a couple of days ago. And that's it. Have done lots of dragon events, with full MF gear and food etc, farmed Plinx to death, but only had rares. Plinx is lot better than dragon events in terms of rares, the chests in dragon events are just outrageous with only greens and blues. They're worth the experience and mayhem however, and that's it.

End chests in Fractals of the Mists have a high chance of dropping exotics past level 8-9 or so.

I had an exotic drop yesterday in Sparkfly Fen, from the dragon's chest.

Risen Spider at the Shores dropped an Adder's Hiss once. Haven't got a single exotic drop since.

Wait, exotic items can drop? I've only seen exotics in the end chest in the karka event.

Yes, they can. There is a (very low)chance for mobs at or above the minimum exotic level, whatever that is. I think it's 65, but it may be lower.

I've had 3 from drops in different zones in Orr. None of them were of any use(to me), but all 3 sold just fine on TP.

I got lucky and got one in a loot chest in AC explorable. Still, the drop rate is ridiculously low.

Best place to get drops? I am not trolling.. and my answer is the TP. For example, right now i can grab an exotic level 80 bow for 2.3g.

So far in my 400 hours or so of play, the only exotic I've had drop from a monster was a Grimward off a Reef Scale on the new map.

Got my very first ever exotic drop yesterday in Cursed Shore. Finish the Grenth event and get rubbish blues and greens, then run out through the passage, have to kill some random risen to get past and he drops an orange. It netted me 60s - ooh. Oddly, I also got a rare on the way in. If they added an intermission to the event I'd be set.

400 hours in, countless dungeons and dragons defeated, and I've gotten a single orange drop from a mad king chest at Halloween.

If you want exotics, the best way to farm them is to map-complete high level zones.

Only exo drop I've had was the mad moon from the mad king chest at the end of the dungeon. If I wasn't an idiot and didn't hold on to it after the event (thinking it would increase in price) I could have had an easy 25g. Now its at like 8g...

I have 2 level 80's and I equipped them with crafted exotics because other items didn't have better stats.
Reading this post, does this mean that people that have non-crafted exotics got it from vendors?
I thought they got it from drops in dungeons. I'm new to Guild Wars ^_^

Exotic drops are very rare but they still do happen and get put on the TP most of the time, so lots of people will have dropped exotics without them actually having had the drops themself.  Dungeon/karma vendors are probably the most common source of exotic 80 gear though (with Crafted probably quite close.)
