Does TVHM or Mayhem affect loot quality?

So I understand that these both affect drop chance…

Does TVHM or Mayhem affect the quality of drops? Better stats (damage, fire rate, Shield’s capacity), prefixes etc?

I find it’s harder to get anointed gear in Normal mode compare to Mayhem mode.

I can’t tell if there’s difference in Normal or TVHM. But when you add Mayhem, that’s when I see more anointed gear and more drops as well.

I farm M4 Normal and get plenty of anointed drops without the extra hassle of endless Anointed enemies that TVHM adds.


Thanks for the reply!

I do agree it’s easier to get annointed with increased difficulty modes.

But still haven’t seen anything or anyone state that loot “quality” has a chance of being any better…

Quantity of drops obviously better, but does the chance for increased stats on the drops go up?

I think if you search on YT for that “BL3 Loot quality TVHM v Normal” or something similar. You will find comparison videos and iirc there was no real quality increase outside of RNG for running TVHM.

Thanks! That’s the answer I’ve been looking for!

I’ve tried finding it everywhere, maybe I’ve just been unlucky.
