I have admit the loot system is definitely in need of a buff.
I've been soloing GM1 and have found the odd legendary (two) although recently I've been venturing into GM2 legendary missions. So far I've only found epic and rare loot with only a few masterworks..
I tend to avoid strongholds as they annoy me to *. Repetitive, bugged and just simply annoying. I'm forever finding myself behind a wall regardless if I'm at the front of the party or back, now i know you hit the respawn button but still ...Annoying. Couple this with the mind numbing loading screens and it's just not a good experience.
I guess I've found the most stuff playing on freeplay which is where i got both of my legendaries (GM1).
Oh well back to the grind..
Just playing a GM2 contract and thought I'd take a quick screenshot of the loot on offer:
To be fair it (the loot) doesn't actually appear in your inventory but they still get generated. (the last patch was supposed to stop this type of loot appearing in higher levels) This contract generated 5 epics..........
I've been in the very same situation for about 3 weeks (Yes... I've played just less than 300 hours at this point!) . Now I want to play the Colossus. So I diligently farmed some +Luck gear for it. And the ONLY thing that drops is those same 7 weapons and components for my other Javelins.
It makes NO difference if I do Legendary Contracts or Strongholds, or run around in Freeplay... Nothing else drops! Now I'm sure that eventually will change. But I'm equally certain when it does it will drop stuff I don't want to use. Or what drops will have completely worthless stats. That's just my luck and why I really don't care for RNG Loot.
I guess when Anthem Dies I'll actually be relieved. Cause I won't feel the compulsion to keep torturing myself.
What level are you playing on @Cannyone ?
If it's on 'Hard' then only a few masterwork will drop. To access the full set and legendary stuff you need to be on at least GM1.
