    Default Seals not dropping in Lords of Dust?

    I have seen 4 skunk runs now, not a single seal for anyone, even in end chests.

    Has anyone pulled any recent?

    Cool thanks for letting me know.

    Anyone else seen anything lately? They seem far rarer to say the least.

    I think when the update first came out there was an overabundance of scrolls, shards, and seals in the new chain. So now that they put it back to normal it just seems like the drops are rarer.

    Drop rate on this quest seems very low, mate, that's all!
    At least is not a kick-in-the-face quest like eChains or eVon3 -_-

    They are still there, just the drop rate is cruddy. I've also yet to see anyone get any out the end chest.

    For the last month I have been farming Marideth's chest, and Bastion's when he shows up, and only just got my first seal a couple days ago, for the bow.

    37 kills to Merideth's chest, and was getting a scroll about every other run.

    I was really beginning to think that those chests didn't produce anything epic. Probably about 50 openings of them now.

    I did do a full run of the chain in a group later that same day, and saw a few seals/shards drop, but only one scroll.

    End Chest, once, total, since it came out. It was a guildee's pull of the Envenomed Blade seal; and he is the insanely lucky one in our guild. For a time, we were doing this epic three times a day with alts.

    In all those runs, probably close to 60 total runs, the guild has pulled less than 50 seals out of that quest.

    They are dropping just still vary rare, personaly ive never gotten even a seal let alone a shard after 20+ full runs but i do see them dropping so just bad luck and poor drop rate id guess

    The shard/seal drop rate has been absolute utter junk for about a month or so now, at least for me. I've gotten 3 seals between maybe 20-30 runs of Tide Turns, Snitch, Bargain of Blood, and Lords of Dust. I swear the loot system is screwy too - we ran ToD in guild last night and 4 garbage rings dropped, and it was my 6th ToD in a row where no ring dropped in my name. Gremlins in the lootgen, Turbine?

    You must normally be insanely lucky if you think that's bad.

    I don't have normal luck, that's for sure. In the space of a couple weeks, pulled two +3 tomes, 2 greenblades, got the torc I wanted in my 20th, even got some store stuff (Astral Diamonds, special pots) in quest chests. On the other hand, those kind of times are usually followed by a month or more of not pulling any named loot at all. Even just lootgen chests I see this. I'll get 5-6 things in chests for a week, then it'll go down to a pile of plat pieces and a single weapon. I am unsure of others experiences, but for me at least the loot system has always been very streaky.
