    Default Do Ethereal Items drop on HEROIC Challenge Mode encounters

    My friends and I recently returned to game after a few years away. We run heroic instances for fabled or ethereal gear and just fun.

    In the heroic instances where the final boss can be placed in challenge mode... i was told that success of killing the final boss (while in Challenge mode) will guarantee a fabled drop... but it will NEVER provide an ethereal drop.

    The same person informed me ethereal drops only come from the rare occasion of a advanced solo (which we have seen) or a non-challenge mode final boss named encounter (which we have also seen).

    Can someone confirm this is true - or can you also get ethereal drops off a challenge mode heroic encounter?

    Thank you.

    I've gotten ethereals off of non-challenge mode heroic nameds, particularly Baelon (mage neck twice), Venekor (mage earring), and Illustor Prime (mage weapon).

    Thank you for your reply. We have gotten two ethereals as well - one in DC and the other in Chelsith.

    However, we are trying to determine if we will benefit more from doing the challenge mode encounters instead since we have most of our fabled gear already, but rather wanted to pursue ethereals.

    I just find it odd that SOE would do something as follows:
    Challenge mode mobs - drop fabled items only
    Non-Challenge mode mobs - drop legendary with a chance to drop fabled or chance to drop ethereal

    If anything i would think challenge mode drops fabled with a small chance to drop ethereal as well. Thats why we wanted to know if anyone has seen ethereal off of a fabled/challenge mode chest.
