    @kryonix is this intended? I've also had not a single 1 in about 80-100 level 6's

    You couldn't give these away 6 months ago..now nobody has them. I just want them to look into the code and make sure none of it was hijacked by mistake and made too rare. I'm ok with 1 or 2 every 50 chests..but 80-100 without 1 is a bit scary. Never Mind how hard it is just to get 6's

    I have only received lvl 7's from other lvl 7 maps. I have not received a 7 from a 6 in awhile. I probably do 20 maps a week and I feel like there was a better drop rate in the previous publish.

    Didn't get one in a while too. I thought it's just bad luck but this makes me thinking as well.

    I've pulled 3-4 in the last week. If I had to guess it was out of 20 maps or less, multiple facets with 3k+ luck

    I got my first diabolical from a level 6 chest in a while so they are most definitely still spawning in the chests.

    I'm pulling them still. Not sure if high luck has any bearing, got two more this week from <10 level 6 chests.

    Like it was ever NOT one, Lestat?

    Remember that Draconi discovered before he left UO, that the RNG being used for UO since Beta or earlier was a public domain one that was commonly used as a college programming assignment. It's also commonly found in WAYYY too many Facebook games.

    Said RNG is "fair" over a huge number of samples, but if you look at very short-term samples (over seconds, or a few minutes), it tends to streak because too many of the seeding components are the same for a given source. Granted, the streaks happen at ALL points on the curve, but that takes thousands of samples to balance out.

    Examples most of us have experienced are things like failing 6-8 times in a row on a 95%-99% smelting chance, a string of misses on a target you shouldn't miss once at (or getting repeatedly hit by something that should have a miniscule change of hitting), getting the exact same fish 4-8 times in a row, pulling 18 BODs and having 6+ of them being the same normal weapon type (and most of them the same count), etc.

    He was supposedly working on a new one, but I never heard for certain if it was ever implemented (right around the time he was supposed to be implementing it, was when he was let go in that huge round of layoffs)

    I am still pulling level 7 maps every five or so, luck suit 2210 to 3110, depending on statue.

    It does seem that the legendary artifacts are not dropping on level 6 maps, with 3k luck.

    Not from every chest. I've pulled about dozen or so legendaries from level 6 maps. That is with 2200 luck. I've done about 50 or so maps.

    I have been getting them a little more frequently now. Ilsh and fel seem to give the most I have seen
