SeS were Ninja Nerfed in RD seal/nightmare legacy patch

avenfellavenfell Posts: 3Member Arc User
I have been waiting a bit before putting on my tinfoil hat due to the nature of rng drops in general but I have now run well over 600 dread lairs since the last patch in which they nerfed River District SHE seals and legacy nightmare tradebar gear.

Prior to the patch I had roughly a 30-35% drop rate on superior enchanting stones, and I would run on average 50-60 lairs PER day 5 days a week so my sample size was pretty decent. I would also pull atleast 2 Energons a day in the Dread Legion Skirmish while farming Vanguard Scripts for additional lair keys.

After this patch I now have an 8-10% drop rate on superior enchanting stones and am lucky to get 2 Energons in an entire week. I understand rng can vary but at this point its obvious that these were ninja nerfed.

    Those numbers were close to what I was seeing with a much smaller sample size. I would run my 20 toons through PF once a week when doing red wizards and was getting on avg 2. I had stopped playing and only started again recently so I don't have any idea what it was before.

    Wow - you were getting a 30-35% drop rate on SES? You were blessed by the Gods amigo. I have run a lot less dread ring lairs [probably 800+ over the last two years] and it's only anecdotal, but my drop rate on SES was never above a 1 in 10 drop.

    But you do have a pretty massive sample size... interesting

    How can something be "ninja nerfed" when they never tell you what the drop rate is?

    How about when they added an internal cooldown to Dragon's Hoards and didn't bother to tell us for months?
    Who watches the watchmen?

    With your shield or on it.

    Wait! Did they actually tell us? Or, did that come from 3rd party information?

    I don't recall there being any specifics or guarantee on how it works, other than there is a "chance" drop. They can make any change they want. Of course, if they make a bad change, lots of people would notice and get angry and there may be consequences.
