Apparently *ALL* Unique Rare Drops Back In Game!

Unread post by Kurasu » Thu Jul 19, 2018 6:40 am

There's been confirmed drops of the Chromatic Sword:

So might this mean that other removed items are being re-added? I saw someone recently selling a Jeweled Dagger, which is another once-removed item, but they may have been sitting on it for a while. It's hard to be sure!

Any other people seeing removed drops? The sword alone is exciting as hell, but if others are dropping as well....!!!

EDIT: Confirmation! Jeweled Dagger seems to be dropping as well! I can't think those are the only two. Although having just killed Naraxis, if they do drop, it doesn't seem to be a 100% chance (as instead of the unique stuff it used to drop, I only got a Shimmering Belt).

SECOND EDIT: Just got Brood Mother Carapace off Mother Fang as well. So they are *definitely* back in game, whether all of them or not.

Can't help but think this is a loot table mistake. That has happened before. I would say make hay while the sun shines!

I wish I could go farm, but I really should sleep. Probably be hotfixed before I'm back on >.<

Why would you think it's a loot table mistake that old rares are dropping the items they used to drop? It makes perfect sense to me.

Someone may want to check Scholomance for the Bloodmail Leggings.

Bloodmail Leggings weren't a rare drop, though; they were an item specifically from a dungeon. It's possible that somewhere, there is a 'Bloodmail Set' out there (the way they had the Defias set in game) but it's highly unlikely that there's a hidden drop in Scholomance.

It's not like, for instance, Naraxis Fang that used to drop from one specific rare.

EDITED: Because I originally said 'green carapace shield', which actually dropped from a specific mob that is no longer in game. So bad example. ;)
