    Default Essences post update

    Is anyone else noticing that you're getting dramatically fewer essences after the "improvements" to random loot?

    Personally I tend to run a lot of lvl 16-20 content(Shroud, Lords Chain, etc), and usually got amount level 6 or 7 items for decon, soms 5s, and occasionally a 4.

    Now, despite pulling stuff from the same dungeons, it nearly all 3s. A few 4s and only every so often a 6 or 7. I've ended up feeding most of my random loot to the vendor because its not even worth dropping in the shared bank to decon.

    I belive you are correct- I have noticed a large drop in my greater to lessor ratio and was coming here to post when I saw your post.

    What I was noticing was the items themselves: instead of a lot of +6s and +7s I was seeing +2s and +3s.

    So for example a Speed III item is apparently only a +3 shard(not that its craftable), so its not worth very many essences for how common it is on a higher-level item.

    What we seem to be getting more of are a lot of balanced-out items, so instead of say a +6 stat and +3 skill we're seeing more +4 stat and +9 skill(or however that balances out). Instead of seeing Boreal and +1 on a weapon with no suffix(ML8), we see Frost I with a suffix. In fact I have yet to see a weapon drop without a suffix since the update.

    Has anyone have move feedback to offer?

    I firmly believe there is something wrong with the amount of greater essences that are coming out of the grinder.

    I've firmly believed that for quite some time. Even pre-update; the ratio of greaters to lessers is horribly disproportionate to the point that even if you decon every single item you look at higher levels(15-20) you STILL won't end up with enough greaters to balance out the huge number of lessers.

    The recent pass just made the problem even worse.
