I've already seen several complaints, and I myself have only seen 1 Rare Defender in about 20 runs.
Getting 12 KDY construction kits for the mount is too difficult a task at the current spawn rate. It's as if the Devs intend for us to purchase the KDY kits 2nd hand fr 1m+ each.

What's up BW, can we get this fixed soon?

I don't see an issue with the spawn rate. i currently have 5 contruction kit after running it 8 times. its just a matter of luck. So it will take you a little while to get the mount. It's not going anywhere

I also see no issue here. I'm seeing a KDY Construction Kit drop every other run and managed to get 4 in ~14 runs.

If we assume you get a blue reputation token only on each run you will need anywhere between 101 and 112 runs to reach Legend (required to buy the mount).

Ideally you would want to get 1 KDY Construction Kit every 10 runs. This is very easy if you solo the flashpoint, in fact know people who are already way over 12. If you run in a 4 people group however you are adding RNG to the RNG and may be a bit harder.

In any case both Legend reputation and rewards are not something to be taken lightly and shouldn't be easy to obtain.

I dunno, I've gotten at least 1 rare per run.

Can you please define "too rare", and what are your assumptions ?

Remember the following when you will give me an answer:

1) There are no limit on the number of tries you can make per any amount of time per character.
2) Flashpoint can be ran on 15-55 characters and it is role neutral (ie waiting time is severely reduced).
3) Flashpoint is not part of an event (it is not going anywhere).
4) Purple loot items are not character bound.
These are not the signatures you are looking for!

Wierd, I think I have around 6-8 of them on my characters. It is ok, since it requires legend to use the mount anyway

Yes, this is what happens when I post at 3AM :P Point still stands though. Not that rare and people will have time to farm plenty before they hit Legend,

I do not see problem with this too since you can solo this FP. I did solo this and then when it drop you do not have to fight for it with adder people in 12 runs you can get around 18 KDY.

There is 1 defender per scenario ... to see 1 in 20 runs you doing something wrong.
Every run I have killed 1 (bonus quest).
Not all of them drop kits... but every scenario have 1.
