    Default Drop rate for Crit Power fragments

    Do crit power fragments (as a main stat) drop in PVP? I have played for a couple of months now and have not gotten one. I have several tank stat frags with crit power as a secondary, though.

    If they do drop then it would take around 1 1/2 to 2 years to obtain a full set?

    If not, then I just up the tank ones to 15 to get the CP boost on the secondary? Is ~8500 crit still the goal in PVP?

    Something just seems wrong with about 100 WF wins and no CP frag.

    It's almost impossible to get above rank 3 in pvp fragments. 3 are very rare themselves, I have seen 2 drop once or twice.

    Due to this, don't expect to get main stat CP on stuff like death and fire, but you can aim for it on water. Just use a fragment guide to know realistically what you can achieve in terms of main stat, then choose CP as a secondary on impossible main stat frags.

    Doubt you'll achieve the same CP cap, I've been grinding for quite sometime and mines about 7000 (can't check with servers down unfortunately). This is partly due to PvP essences being less than RR lessers.

    Depends on your class. I had completely horrible fragments on my primalist 4/5/6 only leveled to 6 and few 9s for a long time and I still manage to deal great damage. Rogues have itemization favoritism built into the game with requiring the least rare tier 1 and 2 fragments and both warrior and rogue can get CP runes for off hand which is exclusive to those classes.

    Clerics are the worse when it comes to fragments and word was that they overlooked the itemization bias for the other classes and never made reparations to fix cleric when it came to fragments. Rogue, Warrior, and Primalist can do extremely well with not much investment. That is why it is great to roll only rogues... and then eventually since you have bound on account gear that you can share it with your primalist, a primalist alt. They are number 1 and 2 in PvP and PvE in my opinion.

    Default Forget about T1 frags in pvp

    I read somewhere on the forum (don't remember were exactly) that in pvp Tier 1 frags don't exist. I can somewhat confirm this as I have pvped for the entirety of PoA and never has one dropped (literally thousands of matches. I even stack my caches to 100 before opening them now. Their 2 frags there and rare. I main a 2 rogues, warrior and primalist. Only each have dropped one and they are all CP with casting off stats but CP is CP I guess. The death frags I only got 1 T2 with 264 dex as the base. I have geared my chars under the assumption of T2 being highest drops as I never seen T1 or know of anyone who got a T1 war frag. The rng is ridiculous pvers complain about frag rng, at least they got boxes + drops. Tough to be a pvper in PoA. 100 matches and hoping for a CP frag is a pipe dream, you can consider yourself lucky getting one after 100. You might even be considered to be hacking if you get one at only 100 wins.

    can you confirm that god does not exist?

    right now, all we can confirm about tier 1 pvp frags is that no one has ever seen one drop and shown it to others.

    I wish they'd disable frags in wfs. They created a huge scaling issue favoring souls inherently high in crit % with frags. I mean theres a huge difference if you put all crit power on frags with these souls vs say attack power.

    Its a blanket nerf but I think thats a lot easier then trying to balance this issue on individual souls.

    Also, Kronos, if I don't believe in God thats ok. If God doesn't believe in me, Im screwed.

    I have one T2 Attack Power Frag. Luckily it had CP as a secondary stat. Maxxed it out and it came out to 253 CP. Nothing great, but better than nothing.

    That's so random. >.<

    Anyway, I think it's more likely for someone to get a full set of eternal gear available, than get a tier 1 fragment from pvp.
