Paragon chests and loot chances?

#1 Unread post by Talihawk » Sun Aug 05, 2018 10:32 pm

I know the mount chances are ridiculously low, but is there any rhyme or reason to what you get?

Is it better to open multiple chests all at once? Does the way the game calculate what loot drops have any correlation to loot you've previously received recently?

I know Legos have 'bad luck protection' but does any thing else?

Or is a roll for each and every lootable source unique and not connected to any other chance?

If you got a lego in a dungeon does that mean later in the day you should probably wait to open a paragon chest ? Or does it matter at all?

Thanks!

I think it's pretty random. I got the Nightborne one on my first chest, meanwhile, I have been trying forever for the Dreamrunner one ;l

Siggy under construction!

The Valarjar Stormwing was the first paragon mount I received, and that was only a couple months ago. x_x I'm a pretty active player, but I've yet to see another, and it took ages just to get that one to begin with. (I was beginning to think they didn't exist)

It’s just random I think :( I’ve never seen the carpet from Nightborne, or the minipet from Dreamweavers, but I’ve now thrown out like 6 of the dreamrunner mounts :/

I got two of the three Elekk mounts from a single Army of the Light chest and I barely ever do Argus WQs, but I still don't have the Warden toy despite constantly prioritizing Warden WQs.

I'm yet to get even one Paragon mount, and I've prioritised getting the rep up since I hit 110, whilst also using my class hall missions purely for the rep rewards. Still nada.

I really think they need to at least up the drop rate for BfA. People won't have the time to go back and religiously farm up rep up to 10k to then have a tiny chance of getting a mount, and I'm pretty sure that rep mounts aren't supposed to be on the same level of rarity as raid mounts.

Nor do I. I suspect both the Wardens toy and the Dreamweavers minipet are a lower drop rate than the mounts. Last I checked there wasn't even any reliable drop rate info on Wowhead, which suggested they were really low.

I've gotten two moose mounts, multiple pets from wherever, the carpet twice, finally got my hippogryph, but have not seen hide nor hair of the Valarjar dragon, nor the one I REALLY want which is the Dreamrunner.

A bit of palindromic wisdom:

I love pets - combat or non.

I find it very .. wearing and soul destroying. Grrrrr .....

I have been grinding away at Dreamweavers every time they are up, and putting every Kirin Tor emissary towards it since it was possible to do these chests, and I just cannot seem to liberate the Unicorn, which I want SO badly !

Otherwise, I got the Farondis Hippogryph in about the 3rd chest I ever opened, which gave me a very false sense of how it was going to be ....

Since then the only one I have received has been the Nightborne Carpet. The dragon would be nice ... I do tend to keep at the Valarjar too .. but it's the Unicorn which has really been yanking my chain, even more now I have one as a hunter pet too. Grrr, grrr :D

I tried for months and months and months got only 2 eleeks, no warden toy, and no nightfallen carpet. I've given up on it for now it's just not worth it anymore it seems random.

I have not seen a single mount in all my months of gameplay. And i only recently double checked the loot table and realized the wardens don't drop a mount. I'm kicking myself now because all of that Kirin Tor rep that could have gone to a different Paragon x.X
I hate the paragon mount method more then any other farming method- and thats saying a lot coming from me. when you max out rep with a reputation, you should be able to obtain all the reputation awards they have
