    many people (and myself) are getting the idea that anti-virtue arti drops have slowed. any others experience that?

    Hmmmm, I've gotten two in two days, so I'd say no. But, then, they've always seemed really unpredictable!

    I used to get approx 6 an hour when they first came out. Now I'm doing good to get one every 2 hrs.
  4. Im having no problems with them. I get around 3-8 when i do a champ spawn. Sometimes 3 on the first level

    Well, if people are comparing the drop rate now to the drop rate when they first came out, then yes, it's slower. I remember Jeremy mentioning that they slowed the drop rate before the Spring Cleaning event came out.

    Sadly, I can't actually back this up. I can't find it in any of the publish notes, and if she said it, she probably said it on the old boards. So who knows.

    I was going to post the other day and ask if they had increased the Paragon spawn. I am seeing yellow all over the place.

    Sometimes it just happens that way. I got my butt kicked by a gang of para dire wolves and rats trying to work the spawn one day. It happened so fast it just caught me off guard.

    A lot of people who go frequently on Virtue Arti hunt could swear that the drop rate has been lowered. I search all pub notes, FoFs, FYIs and everything offical and couldn't find any proof for this. (What I found I put together here). I emailed this question twice (once to Bob, once to Jeremy) as a suggestion for a FoF but... well, obviously this is one of the questions that can't be answered without the whole dev team around. rolleyes:

    I got 2 just this morning in about an hour, so I'd say no. Probably just bad RNG luck you're having.

    I know for fel that the drop rate has not changed. But the spawn rate has. This has caused for me to get less drops.
