    I have not looted very good stuff from L6s in quite a while - maybe one legendary every half dozen - and it's rare the legendary has the right mix to be worth anything. My biggest hope now from an L6 (since forged pardons have plummeted in price so much) is to pull an L7 map, which is not very often (seems more often in Ter Mur than trammel and fel)

    I remember the business 101 classes given before VvV, teaching forged pardons would if anything raise in price, as more people would PVP :rolleyes: Mine are sitting at 350k on vendor for 7+ days.

    Ya, but this was not due to T-chest loot changes, it is specifically because of Royal forged pardons. One royal = to 10,000 regular forges pardon, if not more. One and done, blue again.

    I blame the royal pardons but being that I had wanted such an item for a very long time I am not complaining. At this point in UO a pardon is only for that rare murder count you pick up by accidentally doing something.. between VvV and lack of pvp populations there is not much reason to be red or take a count.

    Yeah VvV killed the pardons, and the new turn in Talis killed the mana phasing orbs. Can't sell either one now. I actually found a pardon I had put on the vendor and mispriced somehow at 750. I hadnt loaded em in a week, so I know it sat there for a week at that price lol

    Well it seems they may have been. did another ten today got one legendary. Not that I was getting any thing totally fantastic yet anyways. It will be a shame if this continues. If this is the new standard of the loot and not just a few bad days of RNG. I will retire my shovel as there is no point in spending hours digging for loot I would not use. I enjoy t maps not enough to do them if the loot is not worth it more than half the time.

    Just to add to the list, 4 more level 6 chests last night and no legendaries. 2 were done with 3300 luck and 2 with 2300 luck. Not a big sample but just some data....

    Figures right when i decide to build up a thunter and try and get some decent loot....

    There is most definitely something up. Mobs I've usually gotten lower level arties from are not dropping hardly any arties.

    Well I do The Fel maps. One thing I just noticed I haven't gotten any with a SA property in a week or so. No casting focus, No Damage Eaters, No splinter weapon. Not on any of the loot in the chest. I was getting them a few weeks ago. I think this is why the loot looks so bad to me. I was getting them no I have not in over 60 lvl six chest. I hope they fix this soon.

    My sense as also been that the loot in T-Maps has taken a slide...

    This is a bit off topic but relates - if I can only get L7 maps from L6 chests, why not have L6 chests spawn on something besides miasmas?

    This is my impression - I'd like to see @Kyronix or @Bleak say if there has been any change that could explain it

    I wish there was a change. Market is flooded with legendaries. They arent actually legendaries any more :p

    The bulk of legendaries were not coming from chests... they are coming from the bigger creatures. And if loot gets nerfed the s!@# trickles downhill and the rest of us doing lower level stuff (miasma, balron, gdragons, AWs, etc) will have even less of a chance then we do now. Which at this point I'm around 1 legendary in over 1000 miasmas with anywhere from 3000-4000 luck.

    Yes but only about 5% of them are actually good enough to call "Legendary." Not to mention there's only about .1% of those which are usable PVP weapons.

    The last changes we made to treasure maps were when we released Pub 88 in November,

    "Magic items generated from treasure chests have had their base budgets increased based on the difficulty of the treasure chest."

    Well, definitely the chest loot is a whole lot better than before the upgrade - and thanks again for that - at least we have a chance of something nice

    What level map was that? I've only gotten 1 legendary out of 12 level 6 maps.

    If he hauled in 35k gold and got 7 abyssal cloth, it was an L7 map - Ilshenar Spirituality from the map
    And that grid function on the EC makes thunting so much easier, ugly or not, not to mention the super accurate maps
