    Default Greaters.

    I would like to see a greater drop someday in a wf... ( I know you laeti are probably going to respond to this and say i just have bad luck, and i do!)

    I was starting to believe they do not even exist but then saw a player with 2.

    I understand trion wants these to be rare, but rare and practically non existant are 2 diff things.

    What does a playya have to do to get an AP healing/dps greater around here >.<

    Probably the same kind of thing you have to do to get a main stat heavy ap/cp trinket

    Greaters I have in abundance. Trinkets not so much.

    I only just yesterday got a core fragment out of a box.

    Endurance heavy with phys crit...

    you have to be honest with developers of this game and say - dear Developers,this gearing system sucks for pvp. instead of sucks you can use a longer explanation,but its sums it up pretty good.

    I typically have horrendous luck (27 weeks straight on Anrak without the warrior or rogue trinket dropping) but for pvp greaters I've been fairly lucky. Part way through T2, I went and broke down every pvp piece I had (really stupid) so when the new tier came out, I was starting over. Now, I currently have 5 dex heavy healing greaters in my possession, 3 healing, and 1 dps.

    yeah...so before i knew about warmonger,I had a pvp dex heavy AP cape and I runebroke it when i got the CP cape in igp. At that time I was not doing heals as a main spec. OH and I have only seen 1 rogue trinket drop in IGP- the single target heals one. I have it.


    Now i am spamming wfs to try and get it back but its the SAME **** that keeps dropping, gloves/boots/rings/1 plat.

    Lesson learned-put all gear in bank until a year has gone by and you still dont need it.

    How many characters do you actively pvp with at 65? Do you pvp between multiple (the ones listed in thread) or just a single one?

    I play between 3 different characters right now and the rarest drop to me has been belt followed by rings.

    I guess I'm also just lucky though because 3 characters have DPS and healing trinkets (Primalist has 4 now I think), a ****load of greaters, and all have BIS capes. Even my Mage that I rarely PVP on has a few Rotward greaters. -shrug-

    The large loot table for it to does suck but you either keep going for wins or eventually save/farm plat to buy an open world greater. OR wait for the Mech vaults and get yours that way.

    All I get from drops is lots of useless rings, capes and all other gear pieces. After hundreds of boxes and not a single DPS trinket has dropped :/ Currently using a crafted one, oh well. I've got like 2-4 healing ones for my lib though.

    Greaters ain't so bad, dps trinkets are the really rare ones.

    I'm kind of a stat geek ( or freak ) so I recorded a lot of games at some point...
    Out of about 800 wins, I got 13 greaters, including 8 DPS ones. So it's probably 1 or 2% per box for a greater, and maybe 0.5% to 1% for a DPS greater.

    During the same 800 wins, I got ONE dps trinket out of 5 total (and because the RNG gods hate me, I got it on a character I mostly heal with).

    I ... I don't even want to know what the odds are on this one.

    Here's an insane idea. Craft a trinket.

    I got 5-6 Greaters in over 1000/600 warfronts/wins, so a drop rate of about 1%, I saved every single Essence that ever dropped(since 3.0) from a warfront and have about 30 in total.

    And I think I got something like 4 Trinkets, 1 heal, 1 dps, 2 tank - so a drop of ~ 0.5%(a Trinket), ~0.15%(a specific Trinket)

    If you are not bleeding then you are not trying hard enough

    I'm using crafted trinkets at the moment, but unless they are made better than the PVP BiS, I don't see how it's of any help.

    A hardcore PvPer like you with hundreds/thousands of wins will get something sooner or later, but a casual has statistically 0 chance of getting what he wants out of warfront chests.

    I think I was at about 500 wins when I had everything I wanted, but that could have been just moderate luck.

    I can disprove your first sentence by showing you the W/L for 6 characters @ 65 .

    Edit: I currently pvp (or have) Cleric, Warrior, Primalist, and a new alt. My Primalist was kind of my benchmark for the gear I got as a brand new character w/ fresh elo. I can tell you right now the rarest drops were belt then rings.

    http://i.imgur.com/6S82zYF.jpg - That's from 11/07, don't think I have a current W/L from that period but I can tell you it's not thousands of wins.
