Will the Stealth Nerf to Strongholds be rolled back Monday?!?!?!

★★★★★ Apprentice

Adding Embers to the Strongholds Loot Pool is a Stealth Nerf and effectively nullifies the Loot Buff they made.

They made the odds worse by adding in 4 possible chances of what can roll with Embers being in the mix!!!!!


They promised no Stealth Nerfs and yet they keep doing it even if unintentional. This is a Stealth Nerf in action even if that was not their intent. They promised no Stealth Nerfs.


I'm hoping it was simply a poorly thought out idea it will be rolled back.


We have more than enough Embers as it is. There is no reason to add Embers to Strongholds. It makes the Casino level odds even lower. It takes away from reasons to farm in Free Play and is detrimental to the game as whole.


If they are going to keep this it needs to be MasterWork Embers only and a healthy amount to make it worth while and not feel like it's stealing Loot that would have rolled otherwise.


How is it the devs are silent on this??? At least tell us what you're going to do about the Embers??


You guys promised no Stealth Nerfs and this a Stealth Nerf in effect. What's the deal here?

Have you done any strongholds in the last couple days? I’m not seeing bunches of embers anymore.

I have not played since a couple days after the last patch.

I'll give it a try I suppose.

Give it a shot. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen 4+ actual drops out of every chest recently in strongholds (not freeplay). I agree it would have been nice to have had communication on this, but given the crapstorm this week has been, I’m not surprised. You might not agree, but I think this was an unintended change that was fixed server-side.

 

please post what happens.

Something strange is going on with drop rates today.  It's all over the map.  I harvested a plant during Freeplay and got "624 Chimeric".  624?  I didn't check before and after to see if it was legit, but thats the message I received.  I thought maybe ok my total was being posted but nope, never happened with any other drop.  Got a Lego from a rando in GM1, and it freaking rained MW and Epics.  Bizarre.

Just to report back, I did have a 3-item chest in a stronghold today. That’s the lowest I have seen recently. Freeplay is completely different. I had a chest with 7 embers and nothing else in freeplay.

 

@Jonny_Castilloux yeah, I had 3 legendaries today doing gm3 freeplay and one gm2 stronghold in a bit over 2 hours. I think there has been a hotfix, because I also noticed I can now make sigils that have been missing since I hit 30. Kind of makes me wonder if the loot rates today are goofy.

Honestly I have to say I think they shouldn't mess with anything too much. Yes the embers are annoying but I've found the legendary drop rates to be rather decent when doing SH over the last couple of days.

I've only played less than 2 hrs over the last 2 days, running HoR on GM1 and I got 1 legendary 1st night, and then yesterday I got 4 in about an hour, 2 from 1 run.

So if this keeps up I think it's a good ratio😂
