Re: Loot drop rates after 2/23 patch

I know that they nerfed the MW and Legendaries you can get from chests... I bet though they some how "inadvertently" nerfed the entire drop rates all together...

So, they accidentally increased the drop rate for legendaries and masterworks. Realizing this, they fixed the rate so now it feels like a complete slog. I got this off a Reddit thread with a screencap from Ben Iriving. So the overall rates are lower and working as intended as far as I know. They did nerf mission and freeplay chests because people abused them.

Main story and lvl 30 grind took me approx 20 hrs.  I'm sitting at 54 hours played right now so about 30+ hrs of end game legendary contracts, strongholds,and freeplay on grandmaster difficulty and ZERO legendaries.  Stuck under leveled for grandmaster 2 but tried for last few hrs with a group and still nothing. Struggling to want to play anymore just keep getting the same drops over n over n over.

Re: Anthem Support Gear; No legendary Drops, why?

How many people are stacking +Luck items on their build??  This can and will make a huge difference in what drops you are likely to get.  I am getting usually 1-3 MW items on GM1, just got my first colossus component, on my 3-4th run through the Tyrant Mine on GM1.  I am currently running MW guns, MW shock coil, MW poison spitter, and one MW component.  My shield burst is level 34, cause it has +45% to max shield bonus, and the lvl 36s don't.

Think in the last live stream the devs confirmed that no legendary support gears are currently in the game

I got 3 Masterworks on a Legendary Contract a little while a go and nearly fainted. I haven't seen more than the 1 guarantee MW drop since the stealth nerf--ahem--fix.

I do not get even Epic support Gear to drop on GM1 or GM2.

Sucks that we have to play on Hard to get those, considering the mass amount of other Epic weapons and gear that we get on GM.
