    I'm looking for some truth data based on experiences of players in Covetous. Since the most recent updates, has anyone gotten an artifact drop from:

    - Direct from the Void Pool?
    - From Level 3 or 4 spawn (not Cora)?

    If so, where either drops from the Void Pool or Levels 3/4 ephemeral or of normal durability?

    Also, have you received any anti-virtue artifacts from Covetous? I have not gotten any from Shame so I suspect they are turned off in that dungeon. Are they still dropping in Covetous?

    Thank you for your input. I would love for the devs to comment on whether a Doom-like point system is at work behind the scenes or are drops purely based on the RNG.

    I got many Virtue artifacts from Covetous dungeon. They drop often when you fight in level 3 at the void pool.

    I got many more, its a good way to get lots of extra clean-up points too ;)

    And i got a arty from fighting in Level 3 and 4 of covetous, its a normal version and there is no message when it drops in your backpack.

    The Virtue artifatcs are not turned of in any dungeons, not even the revamp ones.


    On the same time i got the points from the void pool and getting the normal version at Level 4, i have enough points to buy the right item i want ( shield ) 4 times with void pool points.

    Cool, you get drops of the NEW arties in Covetous? I mean: You don´t have to fight Cora or to collect points to get them - they can drop in your BP by chance??? Thats interesting news!

    I got a non-ephemeral Blight of the Tundra bow from a random creature in Covetous Level 3. It dropped directly in my backpack with no message.

    Yes, I got at least 2 or 3 Virtue Armor parts from the Void Pool creatures in Covetous.

    I got the new shield (garg version, non-ephemeral) from the level 3 spawn in Covetous and the Map (anti-virtue drop) from fighting the spawn at the Void pool.

    Frarc, lets go there tonight? Are you going down there with your fighter? And: Lvl 3 = Entrance to Cora (downstairs?)?

    If you can get non ephemeral items from doing the void pool then buying them with points seems pointless.

    True, but Void Pool is LVL 2 - and they talked about LVL 3 & 4, right?

    It takes a long time to get a item. Much longer then i can get several from the void pool point.

    And from the points, i can choose what i want. From the Level 3 and 4 you don't always get what you want. :)

    I'm up for anything, just yell in chat. ;)
    I don't use my warrior for that. I use my Mystic/Mage for it. Jigsaw can handle that better then Frarc. :)

    Is anyone still farming in Shame? or has everyone moved to Coveteous?
    Aren't the drops the same?

    Btw anyone know if you get better drops in fel? or is it the same in both facets?
