    now 7 weeks, still only 3 alabaster mainhand drops, no offhand drops. really sick of running ME's every single sodding day, to get nothing of any bloody use.

    I'd rather 3 mainhands than three off-hands (which I've got). You can get the increased weapon damage and have all three slots. I currently run with Alabaster off-hand and purple mainhand.

    My ranger is the opposite - I have the MH and run ebony axes for the OH. So many MEs, so much disappointment.

    Same problem as many for me : 4 offhands droped for my main (TR), no main hand. My brother who run all his ME with me has already droped the alabaster set on 2 of his toons, while i'm stucked trying to drop it on my main....

    I would love to see a reliable solution to prevent this system from frustrating so much the unluckiest players (the moment my bro dropped his 2nd weapon on his 2nd toon, i really wanted to throw my keyboard into my screen...).

    Something like a NPC trader allowing you to trade 2 (or 3) offhands you had droped for 1 mainhand (and 2 [or 3] mainhands for 1 offhand).
    You still loose some time if RNGod is not with you (as you would have to drop 3 or 4 times instead of 2), as it seems devs want us to be frustrated and envy the luckier people (frustration and envy being some of the levers to make people opening their wallet), but at least you would have a reason to drop and keep the useless 2nd or 3rd off/main hand in excess (beside equiping a hypothetical reroll of the same class if you are crazy enough) while you are trying to loot the other side...

    Is there any association with the rune used or number of runes used and weapon drop?

    there doesn't seem to be. one rune, two rune, three rune, just as likely to be blue HAMSTER instead of something useful.

    Doesn't seem to be any relation between the number of rune(s) and the alabaster weapon drop.
    Maybe even 0 rune is fine as long as you collect the 9 relics during the ME run, because alabaster weapon are in the daily quest reward from the NPC not in the end chest of the ME (but i'm unsure, i always had at least one rune up in the runs that had droped alabaster weapon for one of my party mates or myself)

    Fun with RNG. With my HR, ran the ME 3 times daily for about 4 weeks to finally get the main hand alabaster. Still no off hand. Thought I would level up my Barbarian, and what happens on the very first ME run I get the main hand sword alabaster.
    Crazy luck.
    No runes with the alabaster drops by the way.

    I've gotten alabaster drops with and without runes, no difference. Runes affect end chest. Relics affect quest reward.

    I’ve made multiple ME runs since the new mod came out and I have yet to receive the offhand or main hand weapon for my CW. The RNG is ridiculous and honestly it’s BS that the weapons are affected by such nonsense.

    Finally got the off hand needed for the set on my DC, finally.

    However on my GF, I am still yet to get the main hand and now sit at 4 off hands, I even created a second GF so I could run more than 3 MEs per day for fighter. When will it stop?

    Anyone guess the chance of the drop? Going off reports and personal experience I'd say it's somewhere about 0.5% for either MH or OH. 1% tops.

    I get ready for the dungeon and there's already a large part of my mind screaming - sooooo you're wasting 15 mins of your life for a 1 in 200 chance? But I do it anyways - fuct if I know why.

    I have gotten 18 Main Hands. Finally got my off hand.

    Your devs just need to be fired. I am sorry anyone this day and age that cannot figure out basic common sense should not have a job in this industry. Tell them McDonalds is hiring.

    This is what you end up with when you hire those with participation degrees.

    So. I got my Albaster Main hand in first me I ever done. 14 me's later and i got my offhand.

    Now I wonder why my friend who I have done every me with since the start, still does not have his Rogue offhand... He has received 1 main hander in approx. 200 runs and still no offhand... WTF?????

    While I have gotten several dupes of my main and off hand.

    If this is the intended RNG then it's made by Enemies of fun!

    Did the devs ever consider that people might have 1 or more alts?

    Up to you if you believe me or not, but this is not me being that friend. I am actually really lucky with these weapons while he seems to no luck whatsoever, so what about introducing some tokens so people can eventually buy their weapon?

    I would be happy if i could trade 1 of my 5 MH for 1 OH or even 4 for 1... or Buy its with ME currency... its just... not even the set from trade bars is up so we would get it and maybe forget Alabaster Set.

    Are these weapons BtC or BtA ?
  • silence1xsilence1x Posts: 1,489Member Arc User

    BtC. You get the correct weapons for class that it drops for.

  • hitchslappedhitchslapped Posts: 161Member Arc User
    alabaster weaps? they're BtA, not BtC. you'd expect BtC because they're for the correct class, but they're not, they're BtA. BtC only once equipped or refined.

    0 offhand 0 mainhand after running 3x ME since the week after launch on my OP. I decided to test so I made 2 more Paladins. Now I have 3 Paladins running 3x ME for 2 weeks and still no main or off hand. I decided to just farm LOMM for my weapons.

    All of my other classes (DC, TR, HR) have both main and offhand. Either the drop rate for Paladins is broken or I have some weird RNG.

    The Alabaster weapons are BTA until you refine them to rare.
