    I think you got a lucky streak... I started doing level 6 maps a few weeks ago. I did probably 15-20 and got 0 level 7 maps.

    I'm like Silent on this. L7 maps are great fun when you can find them - I hardly ever get L7 maps - maybe 1 every 20 L6 chests in the last few months - I think L7 maps are way too hard to get - especially since they only come from L6 maps - which come mainly from miasmas - and I've not found a time in the last three days when I could get near the miasmas on Atlantic, so I'm sitting on empty

    You could allways farm miasma even though someone ellse is there. I like doing it on my Thunter so i can pick chests and olny collect the maps.

    Ive gotten 10-20 lvl7 maps this week but then again i do quite many maps.

    No, I don't think it's proper to farm miasmas while somebody else is doing it, but I suppose if a thunter was there standing around picking chests while another one spawned, that might be different.

    I don't mind sharing, but I mow down miasmas on my sampire as fast as they spawn until I collect 4-5 chests. If somebody came up and started killing them, I wouldn't protest, but it just slows me down and disrupts my Zenlike routine, which is why I don't jump in when others are farming them.

    Just got my first level 7 map from a Fel level 6. Not very impressed... not a single legendary item.

    Yeah, after all the trouble getting L7 maps, they can be pretty disappointing. I was pretty lucky, in that I had saved up about 40 L7 chests over the years and did them all at once shortly after the new loot change. That was pretty exciting,, I must say. But now that I have to grind and grind to get one, I have mixed feelings about whether they're worth the trouble - especially when I consider that the most money I've made off Thunting (besides forged pardons when they worth something) has probably been selling the blue scrolls, and you can get those from L4 chests. And, as has been pointed out before, only 10 percent of legendary items (based solely on imbuing weight) are worth anything. Hats off then, my friends, to the ever-hopeful thunters.
