What’s the deal with this Ice Breaker Victory Rush artifact? Ok so i figured i’d farm sloth for one going in thinking no big deal, it’s just an artifact. Maybe a few hour’s at the most, yeah right! A complete week later nothing! This rng is nuts!! I’m really losing it trying to get it to drop and can’t fathom why it’s so hard to get, is it that popular or good? Give me some hope, how long did it take you or whatever. Is there a better source for it, seriously i can’t move on till this is over!!
I guess RNG is RNG and you don’t have luck for the moment…
My IBVR were all world drops so…
You could just play the game, farm other bosses, or look after something else and finally get one anywhere else
Too much focus on one boss could ruin your playing experience…
good luck !
You’re right. I still have my mind set from the older Bl game’s and guess i need to wipe that. This rng is a new animal that still needs work. But moving on and feeling like i lost to that jerk is frustrating. Thank’s tho.
I get most of my artifact drops from Graveward. Usually I get a legendary artifact every other kill or so. That has been my go to for those and COM’s.
I feel your pain. Victory Rush and Otto Idol seem to show up for me in random places when I’m not specifically looking for them. When I want to farm those… forget it.
I stopped my story at him but i’ll move on and see what happen’s. Will try GW when i finish if nothing.
A big pain in the a#$! I needed some couch therapy i guess so felt the need to express on here.
Similar to getting a spicific anointments on a weapon or shield your dealing with a layered RNG system. Roll one is to determine the drop then roll two is determining what stats, prefixes or anointments the gear drops with. So with your relic the game needs to determine it’s a victory rush that will drop THEN that victory rush has to roll as an Ice breaker. Segmented rng is an archaic designe games like World of Warcraft and Diablo still use because it helps keep there more dedicated players active in there games.
Luckily WoW and Diablo have Currency systems, garinteed rewards, fixed stats on some gear, token items that give spicific classes of loot and more to help players feel like they are at least silver linings even when they go for hours not seeing a desired drop.
Borderlands has only toyed with the idea in TPS with the Grinder but the main studio hasn’t expressed any interest in the mechanic. The other attempt was tha Veteran rewards which is less then desirable due to it how low value most items non legendary or purple are.
Actually to this point with two character’s to 50 and one to 53 this is my first road block. I understand prefix variation’s but didn’t know it had that many. My ride in to work this morning sucked after a little farm session that wasn’t great lead me to post here. I really shouldn’t have since it’s mediocre and a popular topic that’s been beat to death. But appreciate the consolement from everyone.
What platform are you on?
I’m on xbox
Damn, I’m hitting CV now but I’m on PS4 sorry.
No problem, thanks for the offer anyway.
I second this. I farm GW for artifacts too. Sloth DOES drop them tho.
I get them fighting Wotan sometimes
I had one world drop but had the remove all but 1 health perk. Dont want that for Zane.
The Artifacts rng is nut! As they are basically a combination of a Legendary and a “purple/regular”
BL3 is a different beast with layers of rng, tons of items and variation. Patience and world drops I say.
I personally don’t even try atm. I have 4 VH at 53 and not many great Artifacts or good gear with the right anointment. Not going to rush it either as we all know the level cap will be raised again.
Ah patience; will try to find it. I needed to hear this, thanks.
I will check if I have one when I get on. What anoint are you looking for ?
Thank’s man! At this point im not going to be picky but anything will be great!
