Is "Shame item" just a way of saying.... ?

    Often, when I see posts referring to some items better than others, I see the reference to a "Shame" item.......

    Since the same engine that is in Shame is also in Wrong, Covetous etc., I would guess that the chances for those drops equal among all of the Legacy Dungeons that have been so far revamped.

    Yet, most of the post describing these items tend to refer to them as "Shame" items.

    Is that just a way of saying or does actually Shame yield a higher rate of such better items as compared to other revamped Legacy dungeons ? And if so, what would be the underlaying logic for this "Shame bonus" ??

    Just a way of saying the item, because I believe most people do it in Shame.

    The items get a bit of a bump of higher level creatures, but they said you can get a Legendary Artifact off a earth elemental too -- but odds are just a lot less than an unbound energy vortex.

    I think some people refer to it as "shame" loot as shame was the first revamped dungeon with this new loot system.

    Yes, Popps, your understanding is correct. Shame item refers to the new loot in Shame, Covetous, Wrong and a few other locations. Despise has it on the boss' wisp and there is a camp of invaders in the overworld near Brit Crossroads that have it too.

    "What a shame its so hard to get nice clean loot from this new system"

    I always frequented Wrong on SP. I got very comparable and sumtimes superior drops from there compared to Shame.

    Wrong is elf human gear. But for all out just getting stuff to unravel the brigand camp SE of Yew on the road is the best for junk arty level stuff. Down side with Wrong is getting wood armor that forces buying a $10 tool to chance an HCI DI enhancement.

    Not hard. It's on the road from the Skara-Brit-Yew crossroads, a little north of the guard outpost.

    The fort with brigands always been there 5.00S 30.35W. They added the raiders. Most often the drops are loaded with neg mods. I have gotten two legend and a lesser arty off one kill. Only keepers I've gotten from there are cursed or -100 luck jewels. Everything else a hual for the imbuer to take to the Queen's forge. Great place to build fame and karma while keeping your mule from nagging you to death for mats.
