What is the rate of drop of Starborn Outfit from the Black Lion Chest ?

An estimate will do. I am currently trying to figure out if this is a rare, or super rare item. I would like to know how many keys I should buy to enhance my chances of getting this as a drop. Thank you and I hope I am using the appropriate forum. If I am not , please excuse me. :)

  • it took 45 keys on my main account and got it on an alt with 1 key when Anet had the free key giveaway.

  • Not sure about the drop rate, but my two Charr characters claim that they would look the best with that outfit.

  • Thank you Chad ! and I agree Monk Seal

  • Oh I don't know. I have yet to get a piece that I've wanted from the BLC... So no outfits, no backpieces... Mount skins? Nah...not those either.

    Didn't want it. Bought 10 Keys the past month didn't get it.
    Had a Key drop sunday and that's what came out.
    RNG is RNG

    I got it very recently from a map completion key, so going by annecdotal evidence, the best kind of evidence, its about 100% :lol: :

  • Bought 25 keys, wasn't even aiming for the outfit.
    All I expected was to get at least one good item like a skin or a node.
    And I was fully aware I'd be better off converting my gems to gold, but hey, where's the fun in that?
    Nada, nothing, just junk from all 25 keys. Not a single 5th yellow item.
    That did it for me, don't think I'm buying those keys anymore >>

    I wasn't trying for it, but ended up with it inside of 55 keys, I think. That's spread over several different key purchases and a number of keys gained from map exploration; I didn't get it in the first BLC version that had it, I got it a month later in the second with 30ish keys, and it was somewhere in the middle of that batch of key openings.

    I had to learn that the hard way too. Think I’ve had one 5th drop in the last 30 (free) keys I’ve used. I only get keys now from map zone completion or a weekly key run. Very slow, but RNG hates me with a passion, so I just live with it.

  • Dunno, I still don't have it I am on 30'ish keys now.

  • I saved up keys over the months from map completion and story. This recent box is the best of what I've been waiting for in drops (minus the outfit). Got it my first key. The watchwork wings I got on my 15th key out of 17.

    I only get the uncommon unique drops when I don't care about them (the svanir ice gloves and lightning dagger). There are certain kinds of cosmetics I obviously go for (conventional, techy and mechanical types) and its these kinds (bright and intangible) I always tend to get. Take that info as you like.

    Wasn't going for it, but I got it on my 25th key. Got the new mount skin on my 4th key.

  • Got it, and the mount, in about 20 keys.

    Now that the Watchwork Wings are out, am sad. No keys and spent waAAaAAay too much gold Ecto Gambling (sure glad I got that 1 AP though </3) to convert for more keys right now. Hahah.

    No more than 60 keys because if you don't have it by then just save the statuettes and get it when it's added to that vendor.

  • Very hit and miss with bl keys, got 100 keys never got the uncommon drop i wanted got a mithril node thou :( then another time on 15 keys got mount skin and the uncommon drop i wanted :)

  • It took me 10 black lion keys to get one.

    Think I'm approaching around mid 35-40 BL keys now & still no outfit, I pretty much gave up at this point on any chance of getting this, even blew through 1 golden black lion key & still nadda, the RNG sorry to say really sux. Am happy for the other ones though that did get it. =)

    i had a good mood and sence to do something so i got outfit in my mind and i thought oke i go complete 2 maps and hope for a key, 2 maps completed 2x a transmute charge. 1 hour on time wasted. ragequit. :(

  • I've consumed about 30 keys and didn't get it. So, I just used the statuetes to buy a gold key, and now I have it.
