Vault Hunter Relic Information

For those who are unaware the Vault Hunter Relic does NOT increase the drop rate of legendary weapons. All it does is decrease the drop rate of common (green) weapons and increase the drop rate of rare (blue) weapons.

Actually, it does increase the chance of legendaries, but by such a small percentage that it’s negligible. What it does is decrease the chance of WHITE items (not green), which will in theory make every other rarity more likely to drop. However, it’s only noticeable on the next most common thing, which is green items. By wearing it you’ll only see less whites and a lot more greens, maybe a few more blues. It doesn’t make much of a difference on anything higher rarity than that. The chance of legendaries is increased by 0.0004%, I think. So yeah, there is an increase on the chance of legendaries, but an increase so small that it doesn’t make much of a difference in the end.

Yes, what he says. It has absolutely no effect on assigned drops however (Mercy won’t be more likely to drop the Infinity for example).

Correct. The 0.0004% increase is so ridiculously small it is negligible. Someone is much better off using a Bone of the Ancients, an Allegiance Relic, etc.
