What happened to L6 map chests?

    I've killed 20 paragon titans (on Legends) in a row with not one chest. I used to get a chest every 2-3 kills. Anyone else having this bad luck? Has the game changed? Thanks

    Random number Generator....the odds of a drop are 1 in 20 I believe...when you were getting them ever 2-3 kills you were lucky...now the pendulum goes the other way!

    Thanks for the reassurance (?!), lol. So normally I'd have to kill 20 paragons for one map. Since I've always had to solo five or six maps to get one decent minor artifact, that means killing 100 paragons or so for every decent minor artifact? This is what people have actually been doing? Wow. (I'm the one with the amazed mood now)

    Luck helps.

    I farmed paragon titans a few days ago and in about 20 paragons I got no chests but did get 3 minor artifacts.
