    Default Drop rate conspiracy for arcanes in store?

    I just spent 1500 plat on the store crates from the past 2 limited sales and all I got was a useless mythic ring.

    So this is an honest question to the Devs. Do you guys toggle the drop rates or are they fixed from the start?

    Based on the past events it's nearly impossible to loot an arcane the first couple of days and then suddenly you guys increase the drop rates to encourage more people to continue to purchase plat. Also do the drop rates change in the crates?

    when ebons came to crates i opened 150 and got nothing, decided to open 20 more and i looted 2x ebon daggers.

    Its prob just bad luck, people these days expect to loot atleast 3 arcanes when they open 100 crates.
    Your gambling and you should know that you either loot something or completely nothing.

    He isn't complaining about his luck gambling. He is just asking the devs if they really do change drop rates from time to time to induce plat buying.

    I didnt say he was complaining but " i spend 1500 plat and all i got was a useless mythic ring" does sound like it.

    I can give him the answer tho, no they dont.
    And even if they do, they arent gonna say "ye we do ocasionally mess with the drop rate so you dont loot anything and buy more plat".

    I mean, it's quite obvious. It's gambling anyway, don't expect to loot something just because you spend money.

    Aka Ares/Twerrk/Mystery. :]

    Generally speaking, we don't change the chances mid-event, unless something's way, way off. I don't remember the last time we did so, but I don't think it was any time recently.

    I've spent upwards of 3k over the course of a few hours in previous years, never looted anything. I just wasn't lucky. Meanwhile a few times this year I looted 3 ava belts from fiery brood chests. It's all luck.
