    Default Priest Torch Location? Confirmation?

    Haven't seen this drop on live yet, and the image is from the giveaway cabinet in Lamannia. Has anyone seen this drop on live? Bonus points for a screenshot in hand. I'm assuming based on Ghostn's recommendation that this would come from the same area the smoldering torch came from (Ghost of a Chance, Troll Chest) but assuming only. This is probably one of the last pieces of a cleric build I'm finishing up (Yes, putting down thunderforged for this, stupid huh?)

    Edit: Spent about 100 shards rerolling these chests so far, including an 18 minute EE cruise through on my shiradi easybutton, no named items in the puzzle chest or troll chest, so I'm still where I left off. I'd hate to think the torch didn't make it into the release (and is being placeholdered by a lonely ingot). If a whole general forum can't confirm the location then I'd assume it's not there with the amount that has been run in 3BC.

    If anyone wants to watch the run it should end up in my videos soon at my twitch page in sig.

    Thanks

    I've inquired on Khyber for similar reasons about the torch's location and also have not heard of a confirmed drop.

    In Von 3 the breakables in the Troll Ambassador optional room are slow to get to and unnecessary for ransack.

    I'll be checking the EH line again tonight, maybe the reward lists are finally fixed and ghost of a chancecwon't give me the wheloon named greens (EE only). We can hope it is in the shop to convert the insight into an aug as originally intended by doc oc.

    Farmed the waterfall chest in 3bc slayer area w/ a full group 8 runs, no named loot, and a plethora of mitts/boots/mutineers/tillers out of the rares on the way there. Still not positive the priest torch is on live.

    If eight tries is the point when you give up, pro tip, don't ever try to farm for a specific item.

    8 tries...

    Only one of the 6 has given up.

    Just saying, if 8 tries is the point where one gives up, then be prepared to be disappointed and giving up a LOT more.

    It's been YEARS that I have been after Spell Storing Ring Shard, still not got one.

    Ask in the PC Meli, you know you have a far better chance to get an answer there then you would here.

    Once you get an answer there, share it.

    *waves hand* This is not the chest you're looking for. (No mind tricks, it's true!)

    We believe the Torch is dropping properly (and where it's supposed to!) on Live, at the same drop rate as most of the other items in the pack. It's also a possible reward in the Epic 3BC Chain reward list.

    The boss guarding it is no stranger to torches.

    You mean the Epic chain reward list that drops level 5 loot or 1 ingot?

    While I'm at it; a lot of the quests end reward lists are level 5 loot (giving me heroic named loot as well) or Valor. I suggest you fix that because I'm not wasting my time running the content for level 5 loot. Thanks.

    I am fine with the end reward list having the heroic items and the epic items.

    am fine with the mix, but 2 out of 3 times the end reward list has contained just one of the items. The first time through it contained only something I already had (coffin nail); the second had a list of 5 items; and finally the last had only one item in it - the great club.

    think the list is thrown off by jewels of fortune and/or bonus from bash the breakables.

    So thats why I assumed it was the troll chest because of the smoldering cudgel, but I'll think harder about it as I ransack another toon tonight.

    Tyvm for the response, I think my best chances are in the end list even with heroic trash in it, simply because no one can link it in Ghallanda, and only niche toons would have taken it.

    Default Drop Rate & Chain End Reward (Got no named items)

    Quote Originally Posted by Steelstar View Post

    We believe the Torch is dropping properly (and where it's supposed to!) on Live, at the same drop rate as most of the other items in the pack. It's also a possible reward in the Epic 3BC Chain reward list.

    My guildies & I have run the entire chain at least 3 times on various toons, and some of the quests (primarily the first 3 in the chain & precious cargo) at least 5, possibly 6, times on various alts. We've never seen it drop.

    With respect to chain end rewards, if I run it on epic, I should get a decent selection of the epic items. I don't really care if the heroic items are in there as well, as long as there's a few of the epic named items. The heroic items should not be replacing the epic items.

    And, on one chain completion end reward list I got absolutely no named items, so if that's the proper drop rate, something is wrong.

    As far as other items dropping in the quests, the entire guild has seen the rune arm drop once, and the trinket drop once (both in precious cargo). That's it. In all the quest runs, we've found one set of gloves & one set of boots, possibly one short sword, and possibly one or two bucklers. We have not seen any other items at all.

    We've found the boots, short sword, gloves and the buckler in the explorer area, but the buckler is dropping at least 3 times more frequently than all the other items combined. It's almost the only thing we've seen dropping since last weekend, and at this point all of us are vendoring the buckler, because everyone has at least 2 to 3 already. The drop rate on that needs to drop, and the drop rate on the other items needs to go up.

    On a separate, but related issue, the rune arm is BtC on acquire, while everything else we've seen is BtA. This is not a raid, so why is it BtC? Please, please make the rune arm BtA. There is simply not enough character bank space to hold all the BtC items that are dropping, and it makes it really tough when it's such a rare drop & you get it on a toon that can't use it. Please make it BtA like the rune arm from Crystal Cove, or at the very least BtCoE like the other high level rune arms.

    You should always have at least one Epic Named item in Cydonie's chain reward list, with a chance at more. Our internal and Live tests (as well as a lack of player bug reports) currently lead us to believe that's what's happening.

    If this is in fact happening, we'd like to fix it as soon as we can; to do so, we need bug reports, preferably with a screenshot of the end reward list in question.

    Thanks!

    If you want bug reports, how about fixing the IN-GAME bug report option? It's been broken for so long it's most assuredly no longer funny.
