I’ve put about as much effort into farming the Plaguebearer (PB) as I have the Backburner (BB), since the BB was set to a proper Mayhem level. In that time, I have gotten 20 BBs and 2 PBs. Consider that the Warden has those immunity phases, it’s a much longer farm than Aggy 9000.
I stopped tracking my kills after 50+ attempts, but on average, it took me about 13 kills per BB. I don’t know how many it took to get my first PB (over 50).
What seems like the right number of kills for a dedicated drop? What seems like the right number for the drop in the element/anoint/misc bonus that you want? I feel that 50 is more than enough for the “perfect drop”, which would require a vast improvement in the drop rates.
What are your opinions?
How many kills do you feel is reasonable for a dedicated drop?
How many kills for the perfect version of that drop?
Should it matter based on the item in question?
