Yes, we would all be old, white haired and over 65 waiting for those drops lol. I hope it's a worthwhile drop, but i am not holding my breath.

Masterwork gear, as in rating 258 gear, doesn't drop from command crates currently. It's either
  • Masterwork Data Crystals
  • Artifact boxes containing a random purple Artifact rating 252 Experimental Ossan piece

So what do you mean Eric?

I was confused as well. He did say gear. So it's the 252 stuff, i guess.
Having a masterwork or monumental crystal drop chance would be way more exciting when you get it. A random piece of 252 might not be an upgrade, but it's components i suppose.

Though i must say that i actively play 5-8 characters and i never saw a piece of 252 gear drop. It worries me that this increased chance might not be much different.

Time will tell.. I think things will pick up !

Who knows... maybe even a few of the things we are hoping for on our 6.0 wish list just might make it as well.

OK... now maybe that part might be pushing it! But you never know !

Thanks all.

While I love it’s happening. It’s a shame these good fixes that people have been asking for since the gear inception, always seem to happen before a new expansion, when they will end up being obsolete.

Ie, changes to the old pvp gearing system were made perfect in 4.3? It was just about everything pvpers had asked for over the years. Then 3-6 months later you flushed it all down the drain with 5.0 and gave us the worst gearing system possible for pvp.

I really hope this isn’t going to happen again and you aren’t just throwing us a bone till the expansion

See I couldn't care any more. You pushed my stubborn button. The drop rate could be 100% and I wouldnt use it. Take the gear you want me to grind mere months before an expansion and shove it with the lightsaber I earned and never received.

very good.

we all want a lil higher chance to get a crate to desintegrate it to UCs,
getting converted to credits, soon. thanks merkel


but honestly guys...
even if there would be a 100% chance, to get a 252 box our of every level 4 crate,
it would take months to equip by that, because it is double rng!
at first you would have a chance of 33% to get the "right" box and after that, just try to
get the needed relict or implant. good luck. if it would be a 100% chance for a 258 item,
it would be usefull for some, but even here it mostly will be desintegrated to UCs.

I swear, this was my thought exactly. I want it to rain from crates. Ossus is a boring grind now and I've stopped doing it all together at this point.

I think actual gear pieces drop, when they do. Back when we first got ossus, I actually got one 252 gear, and it was... er, either a relic or an implant, I forget which now. But it was actual gear, not one of the 3 boxes. Not that that invalidates your point about rng I guess. It'll probably still be 5 accuracy implants in a row or whatever - at least with CXP, when you went up a level you could turn in any relic/implant and swap it for whatever relic/implant you wanted. I had always kinda wished there was a way to just keep getting tier 3 crates, and never get tier 4, back when CXP mattered.

And yeah, if I had known when I got that 1 252 gear, that I would NEVER see another another drop from a crate I would have screen shot it and framed it on the wall. My first thought when Eric posted "dropping more often" was ... "oh, you mean AT ALL". I'm with what a few others have already said... meh, too late. I'd be happier if the crates would stack in inventory, then I could just ignore them.
