Branded Strongbox (Champ Bag) Does Not Drop Any Gear (Thunderhead Peaks)

Not sure if this is a bug or not, but the exotic champion bags, Branded Strongbox, in Thunderhead Keep seems to reward less than any other champ bag in the game. These bags don't offer any sort of gear or unidentified gear.

My suggestion would be to either update the champ bag to be in-line with other champ bags or replace them with the champ bag, Branded Geodermites. Those seem to properly give pieces of unidentified gear.

Edit: As of 5/15, the new map does drop a couple of Branded Strongboxes. They still do not give any sort of gear as a guaranteed drop.
Edit again: As of 5/30, Dragonfall is fixed, but this champ bag still drops frequently in Thunderhead Peaks. If Thunderhead could get the same treatment as Dragonfall, it would be perfect (switching Branded Strongboxes -> Branded Geodermites).

    Yea anet could we get an answer why this paticular exotic bag dont have a 100% chance to drop the usual unid gear or items

    The exotic variant of this bag does not give a piece of gear, as opposed to all the other champion bags.'

    It make the exotic less valued then the rare version.

  • Even after the recent bag change, this particular champion bag still does not give any sort of gear at all.

    I'm saving mine in the hopes that this is indeed a bug.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    Oh! I wondered about those; just got coin (seemed like a lot of coin, though) and mats ...and trophies? Thought it was a little odd.
    I must remember to save them, then.

    Thanks for Areannet for changing the Branded Strongbox -> Branded Geodermites in Dragonfall. These still drop in Thunderhead Peaks. If they could get the same treatment, it would fix most of the problem!
