Embers Bug is Game Breaking and needs more attention!!!!!

Do I have to start murdering Grabbits to get attention on this bug!?!?!

Who else is still getting Embers instead of Masterwork and Legendaries from Stronghold Chests and Bosses?


Very frustrating that this has not been addressed and has not been fixed.

This is game breaking and it is not worth playing until it is fixed.

I don't care if other people can pick up items for me. 

I care if my drops turn into embers on me. It makes a lot of the time spent invalid.

Just because you don't have it does not invalidate the people that are affected.

@Intoxicus710 What @Banfilidh said is correct, this isn't a bug.

 

This loot change was intended. The pool of drops available from chests includes both item unlocks as well as crafting mats. The sever side deploy yesterday resolved the issue with end bosses not dropping the guaranteed Masterwork item.

Guaranteed masterworks were not being awarded initially, but that was fixed yesterday. This is unrelated to the embers that have been added to chests.

Embers are dropping so that you have a pool of crafting materials to craft MWs and consumables you want, without having to spend endless hours salvaging most of the gear to get the same embers. What would be gamebreaking is if you had nothing but Legendaries dropping in GM.

@EA_Cade the way you phrased that makes it sound as if a particular item could roll into embers or a legendary, which is the OPs complaint. My assumption was that the ember rolls were added to the existing loot. However, it is worth noting that I have seen chests (not stronghold chests) that pop nothing but embers.

I’ve seen a bunch of embers drop from freeplay chests yesterday. But I also had, like, three MWs drop in GM2 in, I think, about an hour of playtime (and two more later from four runs of TM on Hard), so I’m not complaining.

 

Note that I was running with little to no +luck gear on me (don’t remember exactly, but 90% sure I had no luck at all, and definitely wasn’t stacking it on purpose). I feel like part of the issue is that luck is still bugged in mysterious ways, and people that are trying to stack it are getting the opposite effect.
