I totally understand that for looter shooters you have to balance drop rates for certain items. If everyone got all the best gear quickly they may get bored with the game. I get that. But this is ridiculous. The only time I've received Deathshield is during my first playthrough of the STORY as a Pyromancer.
I have run HUNDREDS of expeditions, I have gold CT15 runs on every map except Eye of the Storm and yet I haven't received one single Deathshield or Anemoi. This is clearly manipulated by your programming or algorithms and again, i understand the balance you have to maintain but this rate is unacceptable.
The fact that I still don't have either one of those weapons, esp Anemoi so I can use Moaning Winds, is not only making this game a total pain in the ass to play given so many people have these MODS and tear through maps before I can even get a shot off but also bringing me close to just quitting. I do love the game mind you, but I don't have the patience nor time to farm THIS much. It's unacceptable. You Devs seem to forget we gamers usually have a dozen or more games on our list to play.
The fact that these drop rates are so low I fear is causing more people to get frustrated and quit rather than spur them on to farm more. Two of my 5 buds that play this game have quit exactly because of this. You guys need to adjust these drop rates.
Outriders Game director Bartosz Kmita once said this.
“We think that there are a lot of cool games on the market, and people maybe don’t have any more time to spend 300 hours to basically grind one item.”ID: h7h7bdl
Interesting. Seems like lip service to me. He's clearly not taking that statement to heart.
Me over here just trying to get 2 more pieces of a gear set so i can finish my build
Moaning Winds, Fortress, and Dark Sacrifice are so overrated. Let's just keep it real here, this community has a flat out obsession with copying meta. The irony of it, is that you don't even need those mods to make a perfectly capable ct15 build.
This is probably the only looter I've played where the community freaks out over not being able to get all the drops because they are completely obsessed over meta builds.
Like, if you NEEDED drops to complete end game I would understand, but the truth is is that you could run all 4 classes through ct15s and only wind up with 20 different legendaries and be absolutely fine.ID: h7hidrb
I'm playing a trickster and I play looter shooters to.. shoot. So I'm firepower build. Which means I'm entirely dependent on twisted rounds which basically has me gated on getting ammo bargain or instant reload. I get that I'm a bad and mods are a crutch or w/e. I'd rather not be required to use twisted rounds at all. There's nothing interesting or fun about those "SHOOT HARDER" abilities. But that's the way it is.ID: h7hjgnn
If you have a video of a trickster soloing a ct15 with only purples and no t3 mods, I'd love to see it. That's more interesting to me than watching someone 1shot elites for 7 minutes.ID: h7hld3r
Budget builds are ALL OVER YouTube. Hell, there's even people who've showed builds soloing ct15s with nothing but purples.
As far as not using TR, trickster anomaly build is really strong.ID: h7hgka3
Yeah I agree, they get so fixated on certain drops and meta builds that they forget what you should be playing it for..fun.
Yeah I definitely loved the game unnaturally more than others maybe just cause I’ve been looking for a third person-destiny type shooter for a while. Either way the end game is short and botched - I still like playing when my friend is on but otherwise move on. And I can’t complain at all - there’s plenty more things that could drop and increase my damage - but I’ve gotten plenty of sets and 2 anememoi and deathshields. I know that hurts to hear but after I kept all gun legendaries in stash then I was able to get it a lot quicker after the re-roll update.ID: h7h8zy6
Have you played ghost recon wildlands/breakpoint? They are really good and worth the play throughID: h7ha929
Wildlands is really good. Breakpoint is horrible tho.
I don’t think people are quitting for this. They all left before getting to this point.
I've completed over 1300 ct15s(99% gold) and I still haven't found 3 items
What I can't stand is the duplicate drops. I don't need 15 deathproof chest piece when I'm trying to build the seismic set and can't get that chest piece to drop.
Not too mention there are some legendaries I have just never seen drop after nonstop weeks of running expeditions.
Both my deathshield and anemoi dropped on my back up character. I used to use this same strategy on destiny 2. Using two of the same class characters to get items to drop that won't drop for my main.
Or...and this just an idea...
Maybe make more than two mods viable in end-game?
There are ways to increase the drop rate significantly if you don’t care about your account getting flagged for cheating
I haven't played in 2 months so can't comment on drop rates, but got bored with the whole replaying bounties & monster hunts for 2 lego.
