Just a quick intro, I played on PC almost exclusively up until the Alani update, not getting ANY legendaries for the first two weeks I played (most heavily I should mention), and am now playing on PS4 (game’s too framey on pc for me now since the update) and seem to be acquiring Legendaries at a similar pace - nothing for the first two weeks, and a few days ago got three within a reasonable amount of time.
Anyway, I noticed that I personally seem to acquire more legendaries with LESS players. Not necessarily from the get go. That is, we select the match with a full team, but by the end of the match lose 2 or all of the players, and oddly enough it’s just my luck to get legendaries in those matches (regardless of normal or advanced). And of course at the end, the game still says it’s a five-player match, but the difficulty still gets scaled down to accomodate the lost team mates.
Since some say it’s more efficient to play normal mode for farming just because of time, I’m wondering if it’s not also (until we get confirmed stats for how legendaries are dropped) a good idea for people looking to farm a specific thing to get a team together that will drop out so the seeker can blaze through the “5 person” mission with 1 man mission enemy numbers.
(I personally don’t have enough friends on anymore to try this out)
