    Default Daily prize roll and Astral Shards

    Something I've noticed with the daily prize rolls is a lack of winning any Astral Shards.

    They are listed in the lower portions (largest percentage) of the winnings area and yet, despite rolling nearly everday since 'Daily Dice' was introduced, I have only won Astral Shards ONCE.

    Now I understand I may be one of those people that just isn't gifted when it comes to rolling dice, but I have gotten a TON of platinum and other minor items from these 'bigger winning zones' (if I recall correctly , they take up the first 60 or so percent of the chart), and yet I only got Astral Shards once in all that time?

    If it isn't just plain bad luck, I'm kinda thinking the chart might look like this:

    1-30 Platinum
    31 Astral Shards
    32-60 Crafting items
    61 Astral Shards
    62+ All other items (high end stuff)

    So I mean really, if the chart looks like this (2% chance to get Astral Shards), why not just put them in their own category at the top of the list along with the 1% Silver and Gold prizes - lol!

    Has anyone else noticed a lack of winning Shards on their rolls?

    FYI, on Gold a few weeks ago, 00 gave me a +1 UMD skill booster.

    I'm not breaking out the tinfoil for this, but I did get three or four shard rolls the first week or two after the new lottery. It was enough to post 6 or 7 shard auctions, and I got a comfortable return.

    But since the first couple of weeks? Not a single shard. Plenty of plat and essence prizes, and a good number of various XP pots, but no shards.

    I've gotten shards on 2 or 3 occasions. But not lately.

    Default Since patch 18.2 came out

    Astral Shards have become a rarity. Recently someone else posted about this also.

    From June 22, 2013

    You can still get 35 or 50 astral shards with a 100, but the chance of getting 1 - 3 astral shards seems to have gone away with a roll of 45 or less, has gone away. Not sure if you get 15 astral shards with a 95-99 anymore either. ON the bright side, those Raid Timers still drop.

    I rolled a 98 on my gold roll today and got (iirc) ~75 asral shards. Tbh I was a little disappointed that a high roll on a gold roll didn't get me something cooler.

    this has been my experience as well.

    Shards dropped early on, but seem to have been removed from the table.
    /sigh
