Summarize your bug I am running a Ranger Jav 774. Why am i now after the patch, getting green embers from chest and no Masterwork or Legendary drops. This was sometimes the case before but now after the patch I am seeing more green and blue drops than anything else. Does the server not recognize me as a Legendary Javelin?

Yup dispatching an Ancient Titan or an Elite Luminary you would think warranted more loot than the blue and purple drops I've been seeing. (all levels including GM3)

 

I'm unsure if the patch made things worse, for me at least it's always been this way.

 

All the Legendary items I own have come from either a grunt or loot box and I'm pretty sure I've never got one from a boss.

Same here, most blue and purple, maybe 1 or 2 masterwork a level. All junk.

I was also having this problem.  Big time.  I played one freeplay session on GM1 for over 2 1/2 hours and only got blues and maybe a dozen purples.  I believe this might be a bug with the luck system.  I was running with >120% luck and got a crazy idea - I dropped my luck to less than 90 (this is supposedly the cap for luck), and MWs started dropping again and I actually got a lego after a little over an hour.  I think being over 90% was actually lowering my luck.

Shouldn't matter though. Have you gotten any more since then?

well ive tried going different routes with my build. All the way to 788 / 33% luck, down to 760 /\106% luck with no change. Ran with mixed group of Epic / Masterwork / Legendary teammates but no change. Last run tonight was GM3 SH Heart of Rage with all 788 Legos. Saw no Lego/MW drop only Epic / Blue and actually a green ember from chests and Bosses. No Bueno lol....actually frustrating

okay, Lego Ranger at 788, no luck. Exact same results, Epics, rares and the occasional green ember. Im thinking the luck and Jav ranking is kinda screwed up.

Well at least you got up to 788. I've been stuck at 760 for over a month or so.

Thats true, but thats when the drops were at least normal. Never got multiple drops but at least one in GM3 in about an hour of play. Now nothing. Oh yeah, the 788 is only throwing on any Lego in the slot not a great build lol

I switched back to GM3 the other day and got one legendary. A worse version of one I already had. But can't find many playing on GM3. That's why I went back to GM2 last month.  Where legendaries are a myth.
