    Default Don's drink the water - green scales ?

    Hi all ,

    Since last patch been soloing or grouping this one on EN and EH around 15 - 20 times and not even one green collected ..
    1 month ago I collected 2 greens one after the other on EN

    What's going on with random loot ?
    Is it 0 % probability
    Or is it 1 % on EE ?
    Why is my dungeon coment blocked to " 13 th dungeon try " ?
    In fact I made it maybe 50 or 60 times
    3 greens on my bag so I guess i will not be able to have 20 ones needed in this life or another

    It's still the same as before. I usually loot 5-7 green scales after ransacking EH on 6 of my toons. You're just running in to a string of bad luck. It happens.

    Thanks but I have only one toon ( anamalia level 20+5 epic ) and I do not have time to create other toon to ransack only scales
    Things should work properly with only one toon
    But maybe you are right I am out of luck

    It is all a matter of... luck...

    If you only have one toon, you should probably try to buy them from someone else.

    Buy them on the AH is not your only option...
    Trade them for something you have and don't need in your server Market forum for example.

    (and, tbh, 470k-500k for one is not a bad price imo, at least on Khyber)

    Same here, i did drop them on a regular Basis before last Update. Since then i didnt get a single one. I run it with 2 Characters on all Difficulties including EE. Did norm only twice to test if the last Drop-Bug in here was active again.
    Just to mention it....no one in my Pugs did drop one. So i didnt even see one since Update. I run it with both Toons every day.
    If there wasnt People here saying they got Scales i would definitely say its a Bug. Like this im not sure about it.

    Running this whenever nothing else, several times a day,
    - even though the reward is said to be out of match w the grind already, but its a quite good little solo-grind there for the acutely bored capped 25 -
    - and yes atm its been extremely long time since a scale droped now.

    promised edit of todays outcome :
    6 hard runs - 3 of which actually dropped a scale to a member of a full party - none for me
    could match a 1 scale pr. 20 runs pr. player, so even 30 or more runs w no drops may well happen if true random.
    Thats a bit low anyway isnt it , considering that 20 scales is only the first part of the 'whole' grind... ?

    Thumbs down

    Just been reading u16 post release notes and it is said that they have increased the drop rate
    For green scal on EH and EE

    I have not seen the difference but maybe we are wrong
    Maybe you will collect one each 25 runs

    If drop rates for that level range have been tweaked for other items, it can impact the visibility of the scales too. Keep that in mind as well.

    And getting the plat isn't hard at all. Just AH your extra ingredients.

    Got one Scale on EH yesterday. So they really drop, but the Droprate must have gone down extremely.

    Drop rate seems to be about 10% on EN, 15% on EH and 25% on EE, this is of course an approximate and based off my last 200 chest pulls (yes I have run it that many times)

    I ran it twice on ehard, and got a scale each time.

    Before the last Update 10% on EN, 15% on EH and 25% on EE matches my experiences. But i got one Scale in my last 40-50 Runs. Most EH, 2 EN and like 10 EE. Could be bad luck though.

    10 % on EN is not my personal statistic as I had almost 2 scales dropping in around 60 tries
    15 % on EH either

    nether succeeded on EE / full group of dps and level 25 guildies died at first big fight
    But this is EE ..
    I think that the number of yang ti snakes ( 6 at each waves ) is too much at these level
    And the poisonous effects is boring even with remove posion spell

    On my 1st run on EE I got one . So my guess is there is a good chance for 1 on EE .

    I farmed 15/20 of mine. The last five were after the patch you mentioned. Funnily, all five were found on normal.
