Playing a new character, lvl 60, Mayhem 4. I just realized I don’t think I’ve seen an anointed drop.
Don’t quote me, but I believe M8+ everything is annointed. I know that on M10 all drops are annointed(some exclusions apply).
They can be at any Mayhem level, however the higher the level, the more chance there is for it to be anointed.
Once I was 7 getting un annointed items was very uncommon so I would guess and this is just a guess it is probably like 10 or 15% chance per level. Seeing as there are 10 levels it would make sence to do it 10% per level. I also recall something along the lines “at 10 your 100% guaranteed everything that can be anointed will be annointed” being in the patch notes in the past. I could be miss remembering tho.
At Mayhem 10 all drops are annointed, except for some uniques. But I have seen it mentioned that at M8 everything drops annointed, I haven’t tested it though.
I do agree that the scale should be more progressive though.
I’m pretty sure I’ve seen them without any Mayhem at all.
Yes, you can get anointments on drops at any mayhem level, including zero. The chance of rolling a drop with an anointment, however, does increase with increasing mayhem level.
I believe annointments can start dropping in your first playthrough after or at eden 6.
They must be extremely rare - I only see them in Earl’s shop. I’m going through Eden-6 right now with new Amara, so will keep an eye out for them, but I don’t think I saw any on M0 in my 5+ playthroughs.
Technically, you don’t need to play on Mayhem at all to get any. But higher Mayhem increases the chance and Mayhem 8-10 guarantees you are gonna get only anointed items.
Its a running joke with me and my coop partners when we find legendaries or annoited drops in nvhm no mayhem. So I know its possible but just rare.
