Just wondering something about the malevolent tormentor (legendary goblin).
Has anyone ever got something decent from it?
I seem to remember it always dropping those C-tier legendaries. You know, those that don't even have a legendary power or those that are considered just really really gimicky/poor.
It's come to the point where I'm not even excited anymore to see one. Not that I mind, it's kind of funny in a strange way that he only drops crap. But still I'm wondering if someone else has had better luck or that it might in fact be a design choice.
This season I looted Furnace and SMK from Malevolent Tormentors, so they definitely CAN drop high-end loot. But overall chance for a rare leg is still the same as with common legendary drops. So, to get Furnace (~5% Weighted Chance) you still have to drop at least 20 2H Maces from Tormentors (I know that the math is a lot more complex, just trying to simplify). So you can just get excited again upon encountering Tormentor - RNGsus sometimes smiles to those who believe in luck
For example, I've lost a great ancient Archon wand on my Wiz due to server lag on HC . I was sad but then thought to myself: "Ah, nevermind! Lost a gift, I'll find another one!". Leveled up new Wiz, and in my second grift dropped another ancient Chantodo and 2 (yes, two!) Gifts simultaneously from single Guardian! So just keep hope alive!
Okay so with what I understand the drop rate is linked between caches, breakables, chests and kadalya. So am I just being unlucky or should I take a break and let my rng reset? I put in a decent amount of time today. I got my DH to 70 which was easy with a level 70 weapon with a level 47 gem of ease in it and a level 70 quiver. After I hit 70 on her I was maxed out on blood shards so I decided to go for Natalya's sight 1st. So far I have spent about 4k shards on just the helm and have gotten about 5 or 6 legs and not one set piece... I was able to almost get all of my wrath of the wastes to pop in about 3k shards and two of the pieces dropped from GR guardians. Unfortunately she is struggling dps wise on master so I do not even want to attempt rifts with my DH yet.
TL;DR 4k blood shard spent on helms and not 1 set piece has dropped. Am I just unlucky or should I stop playing for a day or so and let my drop rate reset?
Back during the very first season, I made a Wizard and found two Wand of Wohs before paragon level 40. That was pretty amazing to me, since I heard stories of people being paragon 300+ and dumping thousands of bloodshards into Kadala and not finding a single Wand of Woh.
