    Question Have heroic commendations drop rates increased?

    Did this change actually made it to live? I have ran the CitW raid 13 times since u16, (10 hard, 3 normal) and only dropped a single commendation. I also didn't notice an increase in total commendation drops for the party.

    What have others observed during their runs? Should i file a bug report for this issue?

    I've seen many more Comms drop in CitW since U16. In EH diff, around 3 drop in the first chest to the left almost every time. So basically 1 in 4 raid participants get a Comm in EH diff.

    The OP is talking about Heroic Commendations which drop in Caught in the Web and are used to upgrade the weapons from that Raid, not the PDK, Villager etc Commendations.

    It doesn't feel like it on EN and EH.

    I am fortunate enough to be in some of the very few groups that get to run it on EE (Only 2x for me personally so far) and can confirm that the change definitely made it to EE. It still doesn't 'feel' like it for EH but then maybe all the groups I'm in have just had unlucky rolls and I haven't been recording exact stats.

    They announced that comms would drop more often and it really does seem to be the case... in my experience, anyway.

    My experience has been similar to the OP's - 9 or 10 runs since the update, on a mix of norm and hard, and have pulled zero comms. Had one pre-update.

    But was on a norm run tonight in which another guy pulled two. Three dropped total, two went to one raider.
    Seems like the low drop rate could easily end up with some people on the rough side of the distribution curve.

    Wish it were more like the ToD trophy system, with more comms required to upgrade, but a more guaranteed progress structure. As is, not sure how many more I'll run before I just give up on the raid.

    Before u16, 30ish runs (20 or so normal, rest hard) 2 comms total.
    After u16, 15ish runs, (10 normal, 5 hard) 0 comms.

    Good times, just keep moving that carrot.

    Since U16, about 10 runs, 5 commendations.

    I got two in a normal run last night.

    45 runs total, 15 runs after update mix of EN and EH. Total commendations: 6

    Just about giving up and taking a long break. RNG sucks but eh what's new.

    I have found the same. Not much luck on the comms. Then I looked again to see what my upgrades would be for pinion.. +8, not bad for 3 comms. Shrieking to wailing. +1d6 sonic damage for 7 comms. Ummm, no thanks on that tier 3. Considering the low drop rate I am seeing, it would have to go to pandimonium before I start that gind.

    14 runs now on eHard with no commendation drops for me... this is getting lame

    Devs, how about a shroud-like reward every 2 or 3 completions that will include a commendation? And a pack of commendations (5 or so) on the 20th reward list?

    I was planning to build a red dragonscale (need 1 com), fully upgrade Cleaver (already T1 so 5+7 = 12 coms), fully upgrade Breach (15 coms), fully upgrade Sireth (15 coms). A total of 43 coms. Yeah right ... -:P

    On runs 15 and 16 (both on eHard) I got 1 commendation each run. Still, I feel there should be a more consistent way to obtain commendations. They should be somehow be included in reward lists.

    The U16 drop rate is still anemic. 15 EH and 4 EN runs: 8 commendations total. Zero desire to run another 20 completions with that drop rate. At the very least, 15 commendations should be in every 20th list.

    Based on what most of what you guys have typed, I see absolutely nothing wrong with the drop rate. Seems quite generous actually.

    At the very least, 15 commendations should be in every 20th list.
    15 comms for your 20th completion? Seriously? I hope the gave never becomes that stupid.

    I could swear I remember a dev post that said it was only increased a little for EN and a little more for EH, but the most for EE. I cant seem to find it, of course.
