    Default Weekly Patron Reward/Box

    Are any of you patrons getting anything useful from your weekly patron box?

    I honestly have not noticed anything remarkable. I've been getting a "middle of the road" fragment here and there (nothing special) but no gear, etc. I did get a 'Butler Bundle' (wardrobe set) today... which I ended-up listing on the AH.

    When Nightmare Tide came out, I remember periodically getting useable BoA gear. I guess those days are long gone?

    Fragments (boo), tokens (yay), .. a cosmetic bundle ..

    To be fair, past a certain point very early on, the gear that used to drop was only good for runebreaking.

    It's very rare to see anything exciting or truly useful in the weekly patron boxes. I think I just have really awful rng though.

    On the contrary, I've still got multiple sets of gear from those sort of boxes which I kept purely for the two-piece bonuses they gave. I had a set for 10% more XP, a set for 10% more currency and a set for 10% more notoriety. I would equip one or more of these sets whilst handing in quests for the extra rewards they gave, then switch back to my normal gear.

    The gear I have like that are level 60 and level 65 pieces. I don't think they even exist in the current level 70 boxes.

    All this. I still don't have my 10% currency set. I've also had a few BoA hearts of the frozen and BoP trinkets drop.

    I did this for Plate, Chain, Leather & Cloth gear. back when all those LockBox items were BoP. So ended up doing that for all my characters. Then once I had 4 complete sets, they turn around and make them BoA.

    Oh the amount I spent getting 4 complete sets

    I used to look forward to the weekly patron boxes as they used to provide more useful items then they do now. Today I got an intelligence, spell power, guard fragment for my rogue. Another worthless item. Prior two weeks was gear that was so outdated I just sold as vendor trash.
    This isn't the best means to gear a character and that has never been my desire as I am Visionary in all trades but at least getting some useful items on occasion would be nice.

    I got a portable auctioneer today, 5 charges. Not amazingly nice, but will be useful from time to time. Maybe in raids so one can get a rune for a new piece of gear loot.

    I have found the contents out of these to be nothing short of trash since SFP dropped, only got useless fragments and currency out of them.

    At least in NT you at least of some useable gear, now its nothing short of insulting.
