    Rare drop rates

    I'm just about 2200 ego and I have only seen 1 orange drop from a lock box. I'm not butt hurt about that, oranges are suppose to be rare and I'm cool with that but for the sake of Glob, increase the rate in which purples drop.

    I have never seen anything over a blue drop from a mob and the only time I have picked up purples was from major arkfalls (very rarely), venders (where I get most my purples) and lock boxes (extremely fracken rare).

    The past 6 t4 lock boxes have netted me; 19 blues and 5 greens. I'm not looking for hand outs, I'm just looking for some semblance of progression. I would like to get my hands on weapons that I will eventually save once I cap out a weapon skill.

    This brings me to Arkfalls. My pvp/pve/pveCo-Op grenades and shields are all between 900-1200 ego. I constantly do major arkfalls just for the chance to get myself an upgrade or some niche ones for PVP but for the last 3 weeks, bubkis. That's with doing 5-10 major arkfalls every time I get on. I guess I should just chalk it up to random loot is random but good Glob it is aggravating.

    Thank you for letting me vent.

    I'm ego 3300. I totally agree. What is the incentive to ego up?? You don't get better weapons. They actually get worse. You don't get better mods. It takes huge amounts of ark salvage to mod anything. They lower the ego level to get maps weapons mods ect.. everytime I turn around. Seems I should just redo my character after ego 1000 e and start over everytime.

    AHHAHAH! Thanks but I was hoping for a sandwich =C. Just got into Adventure time and I honestly don't know how I functioned without it. I need to bite the bullet and get the first dvd and fill in what isn't on my dvr.

    Indeed. The only reason I was sprinting to 2000 ego was to get my perk slot unlocked.

    Yep..same. I am ego 2897 and haven't gotten a single orange from a lockbox in over 2100 ego. That is broken. Idc what anyone says, I wish I had the exact numbers, but that drop rate is nearly non-existent as far as I am concerned. Now I am interested (once the servers are back..again) to see if the drop rates have changed. Apparently people reported much better Arkfall rewards.

    Got two purples from arkfall in San Fran-an Invader and a bolt action rifle. Just finished arkfall and servers went down so I have no idea on anything other than the names. Prior to this at the many arkfalls I've done the best I'd gotten was purple clustergrenades. And I usually only ever got shields or grenades-blue shields at best.

    This read actually bring about a question... if your max ego, and you get a really good gun with no exp... will that effect you or the weapon at all?

    Not sure I understand the question. Are you asking if you still get weapon xp (to level the weapon) once you cap Ego/weapon skill? If you can't, it would be deviating to me but I can't imagine that is how it works.
