I’m talking about the highly boosted legendary drops that higher mayhem levels offer. It doesn’t really make any sense. As you go higher in difficulty in a game, you should be rewarded with better items, not more items. To be fair, both happen in borderlands 3, but the number of legendaries you get is highly disproportional to their power, which should be the other way around.
I believe higher mayhem levels gear should have higher chance of dropping with good anointments and anointments tailored for your class only rather than shower you in trash legendaries no one will ever use.
At the moment, you feel forced to go as high mayhem as you can to get as many legendaries as you can. People tend to skip mayhem levels because the lower mayhem level you play, the longer it will take you to advance to the next one. One should get the best gear available at highest mayhem level, not the MOST gear.
