    Default Trinket life

    Has anyone else had an issue where a trinket didnt drop for them on Lord Arak in MoM, or was it just me and my guildies?

    Loot tables are RNG. The same could happen on Vladmal Prime in HK and from Anrak in IGP. You can have no trinket drops.

    I was going to say the same thing. I started not seeing trinkets from Anrak when they increased the number of drops.

    I do think this is related to the change in drop balance. Before it happened, we had the Cosmic Bag mat drop from Fauxmire from every kill, exactly 1 of them, never 0, never 2, for months. The week after the increased drops go in, we got 0 of them. I think we had 3 rings and a pair of gloves, but we had 0 of the crafting mat. We also got 2 weapons from Enigma, and I don't mean the possible bonus shield, but 2 of his regular weapon drops, plus a pair of boots. Then this week in one of our CoA groups (which I didn't think was affected? but who knows what went on in backend systems) Hericius dropped 2 weapons and 0 chestpieces, which had never happened before either, always one of each.

    I looked around and couldn't find it, but I remember a dev post from when they made a loot change to ROF that said you aren't guaranteed a particular category of item, but the system will just prevent you from getting multiple of the same item. So Drekanoth could possibly drop 3 gloves, though the chances were low, it was possible, you'll just never get say, 2 rogue dps gloves.

    So maybe the method they use to boost item droprates changes the way the tables work?

    The problem with that is, if they did its gonna possibly hurt guilds, most people who are still farming it are farming for weapons and trinkets. Some for gear still aswell but the main thing most guilds still want are the weaps and trinks. And if they arent gonna be dropped then it just gonna be a little worrysome.

    Well, they will still drop, but it'll be random. Plus, having or not having the trinket really won't make much of a difference in a month.

    Once the crit power softcap is changed the MoM dps trinkets will be useless. The only trinkets that will still be "good" are the CoA tank trinkets.
