You know that wonderful feeling of frustration when plans don't unfold as expected?
The main struggle I face in VH daily, without a doubt, is the Random Number Generation, or RNG for the close ones. And, of course, if you've had the sagacity to notice, this technological marvel is spread everywhere.
As usual, I always complete the seasons, especially the heroics. Naturally, the epics just pour down on me, like a storm of... valuable goods?
Hm-hm, this season I decided to conduct an experiment, collect only epic belts, more precisely: FAILURES
But, please, allow me to tell you about the magical combination I'm seeking:
Brutality, expertise, poise, and flux.
— Theoretically, a mathematically impossible formula.
And as expected, the experiment was a success, reality is generous enough to gift me an entire vault full of... guess what? That's right, failures.
Anyway, feel free to share your deep frustrations regarding RNG. I'm truly curious to discover the extent of the number of courageous souls facing this marvel.
the odds on an exact epic belt are 1 in 150 by my calculations so my guess is you will need to buy more vaults.
The key is to accumulate as many near misses as possible then maybe find a way to change other gear to other near misses to compensate, some times I have to replace many other bits of gear or runes to make one “fit” my desired stats/glyphs. over time this process will yield results
Unfortunately I have not taken a screenshot of all the bad armor pieces I got, since I eliminated them directly, but yes, there were many, I would say 2 bags full of bad armor, coincidentally the game decided to give me a belt with brutality, expertise, flux and poise 1 day before the end of the raids, something incredibly crazy, I couldn't believe it at first because it's something that had never happened to me. I don't have that luck, but even so, there were many pieces that I collected and all of them useless for me. Too sad, all epic armor that can't be put to use.
I don't know if this can improve, I don't know if something can be done about the so famous RNG, as we already know, very few of us are interested in doing raids just for and for armor pieces, the vast majority prefer a frog mount, and not a perfect belt, or perfect armor. Im not saying that is bad im just saying that each one plays in their own way, but I have been talking for a long time that the raid rewards are not worth the time one invests in it, but, I hope something can be improved.
I agree that RNG stinks in both dropped and crafted gear. There's nothing so frustrating, as trying to get gear with the exact stats you want... except maybe getting the perfect stats, for the wrong subclass.
My only suggestions are, that they increase the chance for Epics to pop in normal crafting and Legendaries for Armor and Weapon Specs... AND that they increase the chance for Epics and Legendaries in Rift and Heroic Raids, to give us more chances to get useful gear.
