Has Beholder Tank drop ended?

Niether I nor my alliancemates saw any beholder drop since maintenance . I tried asking people in event zone and artificer map too and noone has no idea what is going on. Has drop ended or people who farm the artificer workshop has run out of luck? Please give us some info so we can do better things with our game time if drop has ended.

    I run Workshop last time several years ago. After playing it 200 times with no Beholder tank in sight for me and the entire party.
    I totally gave up on it. In my years in the game I have only seen 1 player getting one, Xbox one player video on Youtube
    and I am on pc.
    I am sure devs did that video to make players think there is a chance and waste their time lol…
    This goes for all rewards in this game.. Artefacts that I used to sell for 1mil ad on AH is discarded now because they drop every second. No real rewards in this game any more…
    Either you get nothing or you get it but it is worthless...

    It should be available for as long as you can run the trial...

    It is pretty rare, so, not surprising that the people you've asked can't say what's with it.

    So you are complaining that the Beholder tank doesn't drop often enough, but also complaining about things dropping too often and losing value?

    So your complaint isn't that the tank is an ultra-ultra-rare drop, it's just that you didn't get five or six to sell, right?

    I'd be happy with 8. That would get all my characters a mount with Ludicrous Speed setting.
    Better to be a white knight than a knight with no honor.

    With your shield or on it.

    I usually see one drop during my playtime, rarely two. After 300 runs spread on several years, I stopped farming it the day when someone in my random party got it. You know that feeling when you touch the Beholder, and you see the big orange message with the legendary notification, and then you realize it's not your name on the notif but the name of the random stranger just next to you? Yeah, that kind of feeling. I never ran it after that.

    Actually I'm testing the drop with a rush of several hundreds of runs. My stop limit is 500 and now I'm near 150 runs. Obviously in 150 runs I'm still stuck with 0 drops. The intention of the test it's just a demostration to my guild members that none should never farm events because it's always a matter of luck and not a matter of numbers

    Not sure what you can prove based on whatever result you will get.
    It is always based on luck as far as I concern.

    If you get 1 in 200 runs, it does not prove it is not based on luck.
    If you get 3 in 500 runs, it does not prove it is not based on luck.
    If you get 0 in 500 runs, it does not prove it is based on luck because one can argue the number is not 500 but 500000.

    I understand what you mean. It's a probability not a sure chance (If it's 1% chance, it's not 1% x 500 times). I know how it should work, in fact I'm not testing "my opinion". I'm testing the wrong opinion of my guild mates. My point of view is the same of your, it's always a matter of luck. By the way, I think you didn't understand my point. I alredy said that's a matter of luck... I'm doing this cause people think that's a matter of total runs, actually in 150 runs i got nothing. If I have "bad luck" dropping it in 500 runs, I will prove nothing but at least I will drop a mount. So there are 2 solution, 500 runs 0 drop I'm right (so it's a matter of luck) or 500 with at least 1 drop, I can't prove that's a matter of luck but at least I got 1 mount. Do you undestand now?

    I guess what you can prove is: even if you run 500 times, you may not get one.
    That does not prove luck or number (unless the number is 500).
    Hopefully, you cannot prove anything but get at least one. Good luck. :)

    Yeah, but that plaid clashes with everything...
