    I consider my 15silver exotic to be rare loot.... But it's not from the event boss chest :/

  • Seteruss.4058Seteruss.4058 Member ✭✭✭

    Nothing but mats...

  • Stalkingwolf.6035Stalkingwolf.6035 Member ✭✭✭

    no. only some mats. my best drop from the event was Genesis ( Exotic Hammer ).

    I didn't get anything better than some bonus rare unidentified gear. But then I only did 5 or 6 world bosses because other stuff kept coming up.

    I got a tequatl hoard. I include it because I wouldn’t have logged in to do it if the boss week wasn’t active.

    Nothing from the actual boss event super rare stuff tho

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    Nothing of note from the boxes here, though to be fair I am a very small sample because I did it for an hour or two on Wednesday, found that there wasn't much of note, and only dipped my toe in during some spare moments Thurs and Fri. Probably under 10 boxes.

    The biggest benefit was that I was able to get my guildie I'm helping with beetle acquisition to a very full assault on the Mount Maelstrom golem. Corollary downside: She also needed the ley anomaly and while we did successfully take it down, I think we had under 20 people chasing it so it was touch and go. Everyone was off at the world bosses :)

    100 boxes of junk

    1 exotic scepter worth 68 silver and one or two T6 mats.

    Praise Joko!

  • Haven't gotten anything yet. Haven't seen anyone get anything in map chat, either.

    I didn't get much, I got an exotic worth about 10g but I don't think that was related to the bonus box I think it dropped from the normal loot table. That said my data is quite small and insignificant as I have been busy since this started so haven't had a chance to play much.

  • It was kind of nice to do boss events again. However, I'm completely underwhelmed by the content of the bonus boxes. From the 40 boxes that I opened, I got two uncommon items, an Armored Scale and a Potent Venom Sac. I think this table says it all: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Bonus_Box_of_Goods/Drop_rate

    This was a nice idea but the regular boss rewards were much better than the bonus awards. It would have been good to get at least one desirable item from a week of chasing after bosses.

  • Yeah, I bought into the hype for the first day. I killed two bosses before I came to my senses and realized:
    "Y'know what. I'll bet that ad was deliberately (vaguely) worded to make the drop rates seem much higher than they actually are, and that this is just some marketing trick to boost player count for whatever reason." I then logged out, because I knew I'd be spending 10+ hours playing content that I've already done to death just for like a .00000001% chance of getting something good.

  • Vancho.8750Vancho.8750 Member ✭✭✭

    The chest wouldn't feel that bad if the boss rewards were better to begin with, and if most were better encounters some rework needs to be done with them.
    So as it is the t1 crafting mats should not be in and would it hurt for them to put mats in stacks of 2 to 3 from the drop, you get more stuff doing random events in HOT, the other issue is the mid range rewards are quite non existent some Volatile magic shipments or Unbound magic-wrapped bundle would have been better,
    I still wonder why are the world boss specific loot items not in the Rare section of the box.

  • Lilyanna.9361Lilyanna.9361 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Lol, not a kitten thing.

    We got played like a fiddle. After playing seven hours straight for two days I was done with world bossing. The vagueness should have been a clue. There was no boosted chances, simply 'available' on bosses themselves.

  • SakuraJD.4720SakuraJD.4720 Member ✭✭

    they shouldnt have used RNG for this. its like using a dice roll in dnd, its poor planning. they should have used a Token system. every world boss drops a token, and then you can go to a merchant who sells each of the items for like 250 tokens EACH, but its an account bound version. that way people could actually work towards getting an item they truly want and would use, and not just to make a quick buck. but then again, why would they ever reward hard work and effort, right?

    and to answer your question, i didnt get anything (probably obvious)

  • wrathmagik.3518wrathmagik.3518 Member ✭✭✭

    This is just classic Anet.

    .0000001% chance of that 'rare' drop.

  • VDAC.2137VDAC.2137 Member ✭✭✭

    No, but I did it for fun and starting collecting for Nevermore. :) My best drop from a bonus box was a rare aqua breather skin I hadn’t unlocked yet. :+1:

  • Tried it for the first day, go nothing but materials from those boxes. And not even good materials. Literally level 1 materials.

    Quit after that and haven't done it since. It is not worth it in the slightest.

    When we let things convey unto us, that is true artistic expression. But when we try to convey ourselves onto things, that is delusion.

  • The table says very little, as that's not even close to 1000 units. To be useful to estimate rates, I'd want enough data so that there were at least 20 drops minimum for each uncommon bin.

    At most, we can estimate the rate of uncommon drops at around 3%, but that could easily be a result of lucky streaks or who has chosen to add the data.

    Further note: only 8 people have submitted data; that's also not enough to rule out streaks of luck (bad or good). I am familiar with only one of the posters and I consider them very reliable. With so few posters, it's hard to draw reasonable conclusions.


    Clearly the drops rates are low, which is predictable. The wiki data isn't really sufficient to establish how low.

    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!"

    Nearly 7 years playing a game with terrible rewards was the clue for me, which is why I did not waste my time killing a single boss.

    Haven't actually played a worldboss event this week. Last I saw the prices on invisible slippers etc. were still going up, so either someone's been trying to fix the prices or they haven't dropped very often.

    It’s rather hilarious how much people will pay to look like they’re not wearing something — kind of the emperor’s new clothes! :lol:

    Just the the usual daily bosses like Teq and other big ones, farming them wasnt worth it

  • aspirine.5839aspirine.5839 Member ✭✭✭

    New exotic pistol is the best so far. Not even worth 1 gold.

  • Mea.5491Mea.5491 Member ✭✭✭✭

    No. I think these bonus events need some kind of currency system with a vendor that offers more/different items, even account bound valuable stuff like skins and infusions. Right now it feels like playing the lottery, you hope for the jackpot but you get nothing.

    That's the loot table for the boxes. I only do Teq now and then ignore the event seeing as it's not even enough incentive to get people to do Triple Trouble (the one boss I'm missing achievements on -.-). Would have really preferred a currency system or, I don't know, adding more than one rare item to the loot table?

    Um... I've been doing Triple Trouble every day of this event. Successfully. Sometimes, multiple times a day.

    Eu or na the community on eu do wurm twice a day 2pm and 9pm gmt I belive it is.

  • Did about 8 bosses, was underwhelmed by the loot and went back to normal play. To be fair, I did get a 6 gold exotic drop from Tequatl, (Big Juju) but that had nothing to do with the extra boss rush chest.

    Well as I said in another thread, I bet you'll be able to count the number of super rare drops on one hand.. heck forget the hand maybe just the finger!
    That bonus chest should go down in history as one of the worst ideas "for the players" that ANET ever came up with to keep players logged in, but I guess it depends who you considered it worked for...

    I never expected to get an infusion tbh, but to get nothing more than T1 mats with a couple of T2's and a single T6 from around 30 chests... sheez so not worth the time, effort and boredom factor.
    As for the garbage UNID you get - no charms/symbols just a load more T5 mats and not so many Ecto's..

    Once bitten twice shy is the lesson of the day.

    price from Genesis heavily dropped. from (27g)37g to (20g)24g. i think a lot of players got Genesis from the boss rush.

    I got nothing good in 160 boxes. This event was a waste of time seeing how they put all infusions under Super Rare as opposed to some of them, at least the cheap ones, under Rare.

    EDIT: I stopped at 164 boxes. My only regret is that I wasted so many hours on this garbage event instead of wvw-ing.

    EDIT2: Achi panel says I killed 177 bosses (not 164 like I thought), so nothing good in 177 boxes, lol.

  • ProverbsofHell.2307ProverbsofHell.2307 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Uhh? The drop rate for CES etc has always been 1 in 100k so I dunno why anyone would think these easier to acquire boxes would have higher drop chance.

    I think the bigger issue players have/had is the super high chance you get at getting garbage T1 rubbish.. I really needed all that silver ore, jute scraps and green wood logs... so yeah not really worth one's time imo even with that awesome guaranteed worthless UNID.

  • jediwolf.8724jediwolf.8724 Member ✭✭✭

    I got a bunch of tier 1 and 2 crafting materials. These shouldn't even been included in the boxes to make it worth while.
    I stopped doing it. Just a waste of time. Kill the boss once in a day only.

  • tippolit.3591tippolit.3591 Member ✭✭✭

    This was an utterly lackluster event that isn't worth repeating. I certainly won't bother again.

  • Plainly speaking lackluster rewards for long wait time. You have two choices Anet, either boost the % chance of all rewards tiers by 100 folds (we all know super rare is < 0.0001% and the total number of people that got an infusion at the end of this event can be counted on one hand) and remove all the spores, monocles and tier 1 mats off the rewards chart OR you can just remove the super rare tier all together so you can save everyone's time from this ludicrous nonsense.

    Your call.

    Well, in this thread alone, 2 people claim they got drops. Gemnaid.4219 and Musetti.7163. I don't think 100,000 people religiously follow the forums, but I could be wrong? Also for those two that got the drops, how many bosses did you kill? (The achievement will tell you.)

    @Illconceived Was Na.9781 said:
    A friend of mine opened 100 boxes and did not get a super rare. Or even a rare.


    My expectation: the drop rate is less than 1:10 000 (10k) and maybe as low as 1:100 000 (100k)

    This is an educated, speculative guess, based on having data from thousands and thousands of BL chests (from different players), without any super rares, the drop rate of exotics from champ bags being low (less than 1 per stack), the drop rate of exotics from rare unID (1:100), and various precursor drop rates (e.g. from forging exotics or from unID gear).

    If I'm correct, with map populations of ~100 people, I'd expect hardly anyone to have been present when someone gets a super rare, even those participating daily in 20+ events.

    My thought as well.

    Ive skipped The event for this reason.

  • Pirindolo.9427Pirindolo.9427 Member ✭✭✭

    If they run events with random (and ultra rare) rewards that are the only special and valuable items among a long list of common, everyday trash, the % of people participating in them that will have a negative perception of such event will be equal to the % of people that didn't get any of the ultrarare special reward.

    Special events should have special rewards based on participation, not on luck.
