Bioware nerfed the MW and legendary chance into nirvana after their lootchest-gate a few days ago!

 

and with their lack of endgame content, it feels like they keep it this way to prevent players from progressing GMs too fast...

 

so keep on grinding^^

Best way I've found is to do legendary (purple) contracts if they are available. They seem to give a guaranteed MW at the end on GM1.

Ya, right after that chest nerf, I started getting more common items, sometimes 4+ out of the chest in GM1 strongholds.  It's BS.

I feel your pain. I have about 70 hours played and I do have almost a full set of masterwork gear though the drop rate in GM1 I feel is actually worse than in hard. I have also received very, very few legendary items, for which the ones I did get are worthless trash. I would love to play GM2 or GM3 if they weren't insufferable grind fests.... I'm not sure how they expect players to push into GM2 or GM3 when legendary items are so scarce and the ones that do drop are garbage.

I ran several GM2 strongholds today and it's just not worth the hassle. The drops seem no better than GM1 and it takes 3-5 times longer to complete. Also without a global chat system the chances of getting a decent group are very low. It becomes trial and error, basically if the group can't kill the first pilon then its best to leave at once and try again. Also the amount of AFKers is disgraceful and the fact you can leave group at any time with your loot means many people leave after one or two chests.

Premium access for me will be over in a week and I won't be purchasing the game in this state if at all. Likely they will go the BF5 route and have it 50% of in a week or two, don't want to get stung again so i'll wait and see.

This is to my understanding not true, EA have confirmed that the nerf only applied to the chest found in public areas not within the stronghold.

 

OP, are you finishing the strongholds? you are guaranteed a MW item every time you finish one.

The possible MW drops on hard are severely limited. That’s why you are getting dupes. You can get a couple of weapons, then you need to move up to gm1.

Definitely nerfed across the board not got a single one all day... GM is just not worth the grind anymore, as the rolls are pretty crap 80% of the time anyway.
