So last night, I booted up Anthem and jumped into a Legendary Mission. I jump into a scuffle as two other players are fighting some scars.
Them, boom a Legendary pops up! After the battle I scoop it up.
After that I jump into Freeplay and grab a few Masterworks. Great. I then do a random Stronghold, and again, another Legendary.
In total, last night I earned Two Legendaries and a few Masterworks.
Is this a sign of improvement? I hope so.....
Unfortunately no... This is how it seems to work, you get nothing for ages and then suddenly you get a little spurt of goodness. Then back to zip all.
Rng is rng. If you flip a coin 100x, there's no guarantee it will land heads and tails 50x each.
Perhaps a very slight increase in drop rate could be warranted, but personally, I'd rather they keep the drop rate, but add in a guaranteed drop after getting so many drops of other grades Basically have a meter for rare, epic and mw and if you don't have a legendary by the time those have filled , you get a guaranteed legendary drop with the next item drop. Getting a legendary item naturally would reset progress to the next guaranteed legendary. That way there's still an rng element while the super unlucky would still get a drop for their work
