I had a pretty good night down at Melissa - I got TEN minor artifacts from paragon balrons. I'm turning them in, so it doesn't matter to much to me, EXCEPT.... The first two Martis I got were the Bow of the Juka King. I then got a Violet courage I then got FOUR Nox Ranger's Crossbows in a row, over 90 minutes Followed by TWO Staff of Power in about a half-hour then finishing with an orcish visage. Isn't this a pretty good indication that whatever randomization factor is supposed to be at work, isn't really functioning that well? Note that one of my Guildmasters had about 9 of his first 11 or 12 marties as Arctic Death Dealers, when Minors were introduced way back when, and ADDs are STILL about half the drops he gets from the original set.
