I can confirm this is real and a few other people on Reddit but some of them have at least 2. I think there's a bug happening here because my friends get a legendary in front of me everyday and I NEVER get 1. This game is so full of messed up bugs that it's seriously getting me mad. I'm creating a new account tomorrow to see if it happens on that account also. I love playing this game but without the possibility of getting a legendary in 100+ hours while everyone else gets them everyday is killing the fun for me.

Its beyond your so called RNG. Ive played over 200 hours, Ive grinded through over 50 TM/s GM1 & 2, Ive recieved 6 legendaries, but havent had one drop for over 2 weeks. My friends get multiple daily, play the same amount of time, if not more. I am now playing less and less, why, because Ive been out lvl'd by everyone I play with, cant do anything higher than GM1 for the most part, its not RNG, not by any means. Ppl use RNG as a lame excuse, I even play with 183 luck, nothing drops but MW.

the legendaries I have recieved were in the first week of the game, starting Feb 15. I have since grinded over 50 strongholds on GM1 in the last 2 weeks alone, not even mentioning freeplay or contracts. i dont play on anything but GM1, nothing drops. Its sad, I played Destiny 1 & 2, never had these kind of issues.  I get whites and greens all the time. Im an art student, I swear I seen yellow pop out of the chest all the time, only for it to be a white. my personal opinion, but its my opinion only, I think its a bug, the game reads yellows as whites. I see a difference when white drops out of a chest and when yellow does, but the game always reads it as white. Doesnt matter to me much anymore, Im going back to PoE, there, you get good stuff for your grinds, here its laughable.

Currently I'm at 171 hours of gameplay, and I only have one legendary ability (its got good dps, but it's not a primer or detonator). I heard that if you stack luck up to 90% but also staying below 100% will yield better results. But I haven't had anything that has the luck stat drop, so I'm also in the same boat. I was lead to believe that Greens and Whites in GM 1 or above were supposed to be fixed a week ago, but I guess that all this is more than likely going to be fixed on the 12th (hopefully anyway).

  1. I was told on the luck stack to stay below 200, but as ai said, POE league is starting today, Im going to a game that I may only be ok at, but atleast they value my time spend playing their game. Im just rather done with the BS of Anthem. To bad too, i was lokking so forward to playing it, very poor execution of what could have been a stellar game!!!
