    Default Nerfed master spell drop rate

    It has been an eternity since the live servers were restarted. But one thing has been glaring, and I don't know if this was a ninja-nerf. I've feverishly been killing nameds in Forsaken City after all (in preparation for some highroller bids I need to make), and I must have taken out close to 40 so far on my coercer in the past 2 or 3 days. But I only got 4 or 5 rares and 2 masters. This is a FAR CRY from the normal rate, which seemed to be closer to 20%. I'd have expected 6 or 7 at least by now.

    My first impression is that maybe what happened to the master drop rate is what used to be believed about harvested rares, that a quota system is in place and the longer the server is running, the fewer will appear.

    My second impression is more favorable to me. I think the master drop rate was nerfed on heroic nameds. I asked Sushant (the rather friendly Bonemire-nameds plat pharmer on our server) about his progress and he told me, "My luck is not good today."

    Either way, it's about fucking time. I've been complaining about this for longer than I can remember. Masters spells are as much a part of progression in my eyes as fabled gear, and have been dropping at such an excessive rate to where some of them are comparable to the prices of the Adept 3 rares themselves. I'm doubly willing to take this hit if the plat pharmers are hurt in any major way by it.

    they severly nerfed drop rate in regular instances like sanctum and forsaken city.

    loot instances with lockout timers have remained the same.

    I'm calling bullshit there. I solo'd up 3, 4 and 5 masters in 3 hour session in SoS this week clearing nameds on the top 3 floors. That's no indication of any nerf to drop rates if you ask me.

    I believe the phrase is "It's random". Maybe you are just having a cold streak. In order to actually know if the drops were nerfed you would have to take a large sample of people killing the nameds alot. You killing 40 nameds and having a low drop rate doesnt really prove anything but the fact you are having a string of bad luck.

    I honestly don't see any nerf. I still get masters the same as I did when I started the 500+ master looting quest I made for myself. It's all random, some nights I don't get any and some nights I get 10 (Seriously) I would really like the drop rate to go lower than what it is now, but thats just me.

    All in your mind. Randomness doesn't mean nerf.
