    Did we get a loot nerf and not hear about it. This is not simply the RNG. If were going to be able to use brittle items in suits they need to be easily replaced bc they do break fast. A piece can make or break an entire suit. Kryonix what have you done?

    No changes were made to loot, save for adding the SA properties and correcting the ranged item properties. Do you have more information?

    I've seen the SA properties added to ML monsters, I've also seen a big reduction in lesser, greater artifacts from what I was getting before. Also seeing way more cursed items than before. I didn't see the SA items on any tokuno monsters so not sure if it made it there or i just didnt get any.

    My tmap loot definitely has down-graded on lvl 6-7 maps. :(

    not sure exactly, but just by adding in the SA properties (like eaters) the addition of 1 mod could bump up alot of items to cursed status because of the weight. i think overall, you would see less "useable" items, but also the possbility for more "perfect" or pvp items.

    I don't hunt much in Tokuno, but I do get the updated loot from the ninja/thieves in Citadel.

    I feel the same way... Having done hundreds of level 6 and 7 maps since the loot was bumped up, it certainly feels like the loot took a downgrade recently. Perhaps not intentionally, but I have certainly noticed it. With 3000 luck it's pretty lame to get 1 greater arti and the rest below that...

    Kyronix while you might be lurking can you answer this? Does luck have ANY influence on IF an artifact drops or does luck only influence the number of items, intensity, number of properties?

    No new information but I have seen a decrease form the first month to now regarding the loot upgrade. Maybe I went on a month tear and now I am at the mecry of the RNG (doubtful) it's been a huge decrease across the board from tmaps to bosses. I def see a huge increase in "Cursed" items that I was not getting before so that could be half of the problem
    There is no way to really prove it has decreased but it would not be the first time something has gone buggy from other updates.

    I think this has been stated before luck does not affect artifact drop rates only number of items,intensity/props. I still think luck is whacked because I normally get better stuff when I am not using luck.

    I just killed a bunch of Oni, Tsuki, Bake, Revenants, Ninjas in Tokuno and not a single SA property. Judging from the Onis the loot appeared to be less than before as far as quality.

    I have not gotten a single SA prop from a lvl 6 or 7 tram or fel chest in two weeks. I can go pick a dungeon chest on either of these facets and get SA properties. Or any mob for the most part. Considering these properties spawn in tram or fel I do not know what happened to cause this change. I run max luck and bump my statue. But even the lower lvl items in chest in tram or fel do not have these props currently. I can go dig in ish or Ter Mur and the properties spawn. I do believe in bad RNG runs have had them before. But not getting the SA props in facets that are supposed to spawn SA props in chest leads me to believe something must be up.

    i see the same regarding tmaps and high end monster like Exodus and Scalis, much less artifacs, more cursed stuff.

    did a few level 6 maps a few days ago, no legendary, no major, few greater most of them cursed.

    That sounds like Fan Dancer Dojo, I'm talking about Citadel where you get the keys for travesty. They still drop all the normal stuff they used to drop like plain iron weapons, but they also drop a handful of Shame loot on them as well. It is weird.. kind of like a tacked loot package or something.

    Now that you mention it, I think Citadel might be on a different 'facet' than tokuno, even though you enter through tokuno.. so might be getting loot applied to it. I might swing by Fan Dancer and try it out later tonight. In key farming mood, so grabbing some hehe.
