Exotic Drop's Have changed...1 Likes/5 Replies/422 ViewsOriginal poster Kaptain_Krypto 2 posts
Heya Fellow agents,
I have noticed a change in the Exotic drops as of late as I play my second set of characters. In the last 2 months I have gotten 45 exotic drops, via the projects, missions, and just random drops from opening gear or gun boxes. I have kept a running talley, 7 Momento's, 9 Acosta Go-Bags, 1 Tardigrade, 5 BTSU Gloves, 2 Imperial Dynasty, 1 Waveform, 2 Vile, 2 Sawyers Kneepads, 2 Bullet Kings, 2 Pestilence, 2 Mantis, 5 Backfire, 5 Lady Death's.
In my first set of toons, I had gotten at least 3 Chameleon's in the few months after the toons reached level 40, and Memento's were far and few between. Personally, i think the BTSU gloves are a waste of my time because of my play style, I find the Backfire to be of limited use and the Lady Death very situational.
Again, just in my case, I find opening an Exotic Cache to be an exercise in frustration now as opposed to something to look forward to. I suspect that the dev's changed the probability numbers for each exotic to drop, not counting things like the Nemesis.
I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed the change.

@kaptain_krypto Isn't because the pool of weapons you are interested in is way smaller than the pool? I mean it's a big random RNG box of a drop unless you are farming something specific with the targetted loot or from certain factions, even more if you count some are limited to raids, legendary or projects

@xcel30 I agree with what you said, I think the point I was trying to make was that, with my first set of toons, I had 3 Chameleon's in no time and it took me almost a year to get my first Memento bag. Now I got 7 Memento's in 2 months and no Chameleon's, and I am using the Chameleon as the most glaring example that I can think of. It just seems to me like the probabilities have changed.

I opened several Exotic caches that I had stored for a while and got the Catharsis and Dread Edict included.

Maybe a bit out of topic but the frustration would be a bit less, if exotic caches would bring some top tier crafting matierals too (like in Division 1). Only "the wrong exotic" always felt unrewarding for me.
But okay, if you farm a specific one and dont get it, crafting matarials wont save your day... i feel with you
