I do realize that the droprate of legendaries in Mayhem was excessive, but after playing more this evening the nerf has gone way too far, at least from my first impression.
Rather than simply nerfing the insane farming areas and perhaps dialing down droprates slightly on Mayhem 2 and 3, Gearbox decided to wield the nerf equivalent of a sledgehammer.
It feels like Borderlands 2, pre droprate buffs. And that’s on Mayhem 1/2.
It also feels like, despite claims to the contrary, loot drops were also nerfed somewhat in non Mayhem modes.
I’m sure there is some sort of happy middle between ‘legendaries raining from the sky’ and the frustration of going hours without seeing one, but this isn’t it.
EDIT: After a bit more testing, droprates in non Mayhem modes have also been gutted. Why?
How are you finding the new droprates, in particular people that were still gearing and aren’t totally kitted out yet/prefer playing solo?
