    Default Keep on the Borderlands Epic Loot Drop Rate

    Is it that bad? or am i really unlucky?

    Did you get any ingots? Because instead of dropping the weapons directly, it drops ingots that you trade for your choice of weapon (SUPER quality of life improvement!)

    I have gotten a few ingots .. and the ml 20 items are nice to start out with at 20. I was just talking about the named items. I'm not even really complaining .. just curious as to weather other people are having trouble getting their hands on the new shiny things.

    Your odds of finding a Named Item in the end chests of Epic Keep dungeons are the same as they've been in most other dungeons we've released in the last few years.
    We don't only build for the builds that exist.

    The fact that some changes are necessary is not diminished by the fact that other necessary changes have not happened yet.

    Thanks for the quick reply, i got another one just a few min ago so maybe my luck is changing! Love the level 20 gear! great update!

    one more thing ... do the ingots take up a named spot in the chests or are they a separate drop rate?

    1 full run (except 1 inactive quest) and I got 3 named items + 1 horse upgrade. So prolly you just had no luck.

    Separate drop rate.

    Worth noting that the heroic loot actually has a 100% drop rate, too :)

    1 full run, 2 named out of 8 quests. I think they advertised a 33% drop rate on EE/reaper so that seems about right.

    Keep in mind the wilderness chests drop named loot too...

    I had one end chest that gave both a named item and an ingot.
    Running the circuit three times (including the kobold one once), I've pulled about 3 times more ingots than named items.
    I like the 1-1 ingot to weapon exchange, and that I get to pick which of the great variety of weapons I want.

    wow i feel special, 2 dev replies on a seemingly unnecessary thread!

    I noticed the heroic drop rate .. nice touch! lure them in and get them hooked before you introduce the concept of grind! I APPROVE!

    I completed 2 full runs on Epic Elite, 7 quests.

    1st Run - I collected 3 named items

    2nd Run - I collected 4 named items

    In my opinion that is pretty good. All different items.

    Default Wilderness chests

    The wilderness chests do have a chance to drop loot but from what Ive pulled it seems to be a small selection from the overall loot. Orb of incandescence x3, trinket with save +8 insightful con +4 (not on so dont rem name) x3, small shield with 30% speed x2. Maybe Im unlucky lol, (or lucky depending on perspective), but Id say the items available in wilderness are a small sampling.

    You were unlucky. It happens to us all. I've hit some nasty named loot droughts at times.

    I can see why items ML were reduced to 20 or this would have been a great sentient xp low epic grind. Which in a way is too bad since it would prep newer toons and players for tougher content

    I pulled a named hat out of a wilderness chest (don't remember which one). Unfortunately it is a Pale Master item, and I never Pale Masters. I fed it to a Sentient Gem.
