    Default Dungeon Artifacts Drops Need Changing

    Evan though they have been in for a while now, just that i didn't want the sets until saw what the items were from the achives, but the main problem is that the artifacts are a white drop, which means any one can pick it up most of the time the tank, which means you can do 100000000 runs but if u don't get first loot on mobs with pugs then you won't get any artifact at all, they need to be high rarity rating so the need vs greed procs when the artifact drops, not only this they need a massive increase in drop rate or put at least 1 or 2 chests in each dungeon like tower of the shattered so all have a chance of getting artifacts.

    Agree with most of this. I haven't run tons of them but have yet to see any drop at all.

    Hi Alfie, tracking you and my guild a long with a few other friends since 2.4 I am aware people on both regions are going to great lengths making groups specifically to attain artifacts even guilds are prioritizing one person to get the artifacts in guild runs but the odds are still very daunting rng wise. A vast majority do not have this luxury though especially EU with quieter populations so adding this to what you are experiencing weighs heavy on possibility. We have two people on NA with 2 sets between them and none on EU from the shards I have checked (please excuse me if any of this has changed).

    Giving this time to settle since 2.5 released especially gauging friends who are artifact and achievement fiends the odds are very dim even for those farming experts or trying to complete achievements to attain these items.

    +1, we need more dungeon artifacts dropping. It is unhealthy for so few (and for many servers, nobody) to have access to such coveted dimension items.

    I never do dungeon runs but am now doing so and have only ever seen one blue artifact drop I have never looted a white or seen a green and have had to shop on the auction house which is atrocious. Paying 1-5k for a artifact is so harsh. I have chars on two EU servers and haven't even seen anyone selling the items
    Dimensions 'used to be' cheaper than sims now I can't afford to buy any real furniture!

    Rifthead identified a couple people with 2 or 3 unique sets complete on their respective servers --

    To be certain I will only speak for myself Amory @deepwood, I have the Empyrean Core souvenirs complete (Pouring water effect, brevanic tower elevator etc) as well as another person on Deepwood.

    The drop rate needs to be increased undoubtedly... many of these instances don't have trash you can readily farm. Talk about insult to injury

    I watch the ah like 15 times a day just for these artifacts. I have people in my guild who said they would sell to me first rather then learn them. I also run dungeons now I hate it but I do it just to try to get these. Have not seen a single one drop yet, and have only been able to buy about 8. All of them have been between 300 to 800 plat of coarse I cant buy them at 800. Not to mention even when they have trash most groups wont kill trash if they dont have to, they just skip right past it.

    I have done tons of the dungeons since the patch and actually got one of the artifacts last night from realm of twisted dreams, it was the blue one. This was the first one I had seen and I have been tanking all of the dungeons. I am almost afraid to use it. It is sitting in my bags tempting me. I searched for the other parts to the set but none of them are on AH in faeblight. I do not like tanking in that dungeon but I will if it means fairy houses.

    We've bumped the drop rate and set the rarities to Rare and Epic internally and we'll push it up with the next patch.

    Thank you kindly Mr York

    YES! No more white ones so everyone can roll!

    PS: Thanks for Hammerknell revisit & being able to fish for artifacts. Maybe this could be a feature in all of the expert dungeons to fish and get chance at super rare artifact that is part of the sets-instance must be cleared first so a pool after last boss?

    Do we have an eta on this patch, please? I have a competition to enter and it would be nice to have time to farm all these so that we have access to the same items as our NA friends.
