    just read on wowhead that the drop rate from the cache WAS nerfed, why isn't this on mmo-champion's front page?

    what a disgrace, blizz can't tell us this shit? spent over 15k coins for nothing
    Reduced the chance for Burden of Eternity to drop from Kukuru's Caches.
    On the front page. Bit of patience buddy.

    Also, easy burdens nerfed, QQ moar.

    You don't. The gear will get you into LFR at least without Burdens. Assuming you aren't in Flexi already anyway.

    If you grind forever for coins it's because you CHOSE to.

    First day (Wednesday, Europe) I got the same 25ish tokens you did. Yesterday, nothing. One token from a chest, nothing from the 40+ rares I killed. Other people in /General were complaining of the same thing.

    All I can say is RNG is random. Just got done playing and I had plenty of tokens to mail off.

    Although I do think they reduced the number of coins certain mobs dropped. I never got more than 500 off of any of the rares, whereas on day one I was getting 1k+ off the ship and Evermaw.

    Why did Kakuru's chests have to be nerfed in the first place? A day of farming, killing elites, exploring for chests yada yada, and I ended up with 1 535 item, which is still inferior to pretty much everything. I'd rather they got rid of the excessive drop rate of 496 tokens for alts ~_~

    Maybe im just lucky but ive spent maybe 8 hours total across 3 toons this week and have gotten 7 burdens of eternity from rares and chest spawns on the island. Only opened a few chests in the cave so cant comment on the nerf.

    to a new 90 535 items are AMAZING. If ur better geared then why are you trying to farm for these 535 pieces in the first place?

    the "bonus coins" were still a part of those 90k (investment) .

    if you have 10 dollars , keep gambling , win 10 more meanwhile , keep gambling , and you win a 15 dollar (watch, ticket ,item or anything else worth 15 dollars)

    Was it worth it spend 10 dollars to get a item worth 15$ ? yes of course .
    He didnt spend 20 , he never had 20 , he had 10 and used those 10 .

    he started with 10 , and lost lost won lost won lost lost , maybe he never even had 11 dollars at same time .

    If you want him to spend 10 , at the end of it , have still 10 + 15$ item well thats not how it works .

    profit = starting money x , you end with money or items of a value "x+y"
    y= is youre profit .

    Being a bit condescending there. The gear was never meant for people to use on their mains for more than a bit of spot upgrading. Burdens weren't put there so people would grind them for a hundred hours before next Tuesday and have slight upgrades over ToT normal gear.

    I'm frustrated, too. I've put in something over 25 hours total trying to get a leather helm token so I can finally use my legendary meta gem for the first time but at this point I'd rather just play GW2 until the next reset or level a new alt. No reason to make it out to be a bigger issue than it is, though.

    well at least some ppl got burdens of that fucking monkey. i sank 60k coins into it yesterday and didnt get a single one. so naturally im "supper happy" they nerfed the drop rate even more

    Friend managed to get four Burdens of Eternity of his Paladin and one on his Priest without using the 100% drop rates ones. I personally spent at least 18,000 coins on chests and got nothing. The only Burdens I got were from the Smoldering Chest using Engineering to get to it and one off a rare mob.

    But yeah, despite him having not done any Flex Raids and just LFR, he has around 531 ilvl and only three items below 530 xD He already doesn't see much point with doing SoO LFR given most if not all the gear for his Paladin will be pretty much useless.

    90k starting is still better than 100k at the vendor for the same 2 burdens

    it's not like he started with 90k, hit 150 or 200k and kept gambling

    We already know for a fact that the monkey treasure was nerfed. It's in the hotfix notes ffs.

    I got 27 tokens on my druid alt today. Just because you had bad luck doesn't mean something was nerfed.

    Why do we care about turtle spawns? What's special about them?

    I farmed 60k coins, bought the 535 trinket from the NPC for my resto set, spent the last 10k on gambling, for 2 burdens, was a good day, then again..



    Would love to see if there is a higher amount then this, not seen it yet.

    Even 496 items are amazing for a fresh 90 tbh. The 496 trinkets may be unique, but you can still fill every other slot, bar weapons, from the tokens. For example, out of the 13 slots that can be filled from tokens (i.e. you can only have one trinket), I'm only missing belt from my 88 Druid alt, that's it. My item level will somewhere in the region of 485-490 the moment he hit's 90 (only let down by the 450 trinket, 424 weapon, and the belt assuming I don't loot one before he caps). The armor cache can be used before 90, but the item it creates can't. Even so, it's nice to see what stats I'll have on some slots. On top of this, I've got trinkets, 2 rings and all the major slots ready to go.

    I've got 3x535 items on my LFR Paladin main, all of them upgrades from 502. I also got a boat load of tokens I can't use. I sent all the cloth ones to my lock and disenchanted the lot of them. I've still got mail, plate and a few leather tokens I can't use (better gear on mail and plate, and duplicates for Leather) but I figure that I'll keep them if I ever level another alt that can use them. I got 1 burden from the chest in around 12K coins, and 3 bonkers which can't be caged and which I'm not interested in. The other 2 burdens, one was from the top chest, and the other was from my last moss covered chest. Interestingly, I've looted every chest out there (as checked with a macro that checks the QuestComplete flag for each chest), but the achievement still says I need to loot 1 sturdy chest, but basically, there's no more burdens available for me to loot.

    People whining about the burdens need to realize that you can get ~2K coins easily every hour from the ship and the whale. This is on top of whatever else you farm. A 535 item every day if you push it, and you could easily be better geared than SoO LFR will offer in the first week of LFR being available, at least if you look at raw item level. Basically, even though I lose out on the secondary stat on some piece, I get a massive amount of one stat which I can reforge to a massive amount of whatever secondary stat I want. To me, this is better than having 2 stats with 1 being mediocre.

    For example, on 2/3 of the 535's which are upgraded to 2/2 with valor, I have 1392 hit. This is quite a bad stat right now as I'm way over cap, but it let's me reforge to 556 haste and means I can outright ignore hit on most other slots. These slots I upgraded are slots I've been unlucky with. For example, I wouldn't replace my 2/2 522-530 chest from Oondasta with a burden 535 as it's got large amounts of 2 stats. The other slots, the ones I did upgrade to 535, were mediocre in stat assignment and with no good alternatives readily available.

    I'm not happy that they've nerfed the drop rate on burdens, but I understand why they did it. I'd love to upgrade all my slots to 535, but I understand that's still possible, it'll just mean I have to farm consistently. Though I'm happy with 496 items being essentially free for all, I'm also fine with 535 gear taking some time investment to acquire.
