As the thread title says, please consider making the frenzy drop rates permanent. I understand concerns about shortening the longevity of the game, but bare in mind, this cuts both ways. Too little grind, and people might find everything they want, and stop playing. Too much of a grind, and people will give up and stop playing. Based on numerous other threads, it seems most people still have a lot of farming to do to get where they’d like to be. While personally, I’ve found more useful items from world drops than dedicated during this event, any boost to the dedicated drops is greatly appreciated.
While the event may not have met everyone’s expectations, I’m sure the majority of us appreciate the efforts to respond to issues forum users have raised. Keeping the drop rates as they are will help keep the game fun for those of us do a good bit of farming. For casual players, higher drop rates means a chance to actually get to experience content they otherwise never would have.
The huge variety of anointments is great - it gives dedicated farmers the chance to try out a huge number of possible builds. However, it adds enough variety to items that simply finding the base item is no longer the end goal. While options to reroll, say, a stat or anointment on an item would be a great way to deal with this, I understand that would require more resources. A simple solution, at least for the time being, is to let drop rates offset the new variety that BL3 introduces.
ETA: It seems a lot of people are (understandably) still unhappy about dedicated drop rates. I agree and I’m all for increasing them, but the improved anointed rates and the rare spawns appearing consistently is a step in the right direction. I hope the devs will consider building on those changes in the future, rather than reverting them. As such, I’ve edited the title to reflect that.
