    No burdens all week?

    I've been told that there's no cap on the number of Burdens of eternity you can get, so I'm wondering why I've not gotten one yet this week even though I've killed tons of rares and just opened like 100 chests in that cave.

    Bad luck. It happens when loot is random.

    Bad luck, I guess. I havent gotten a single one on my alt who actually needs them, while they are piling up on my main.

    I seem to have a higher chance to get a burden if it's my first kill of that boss of the day...I know i've got multiple burdens per day and at least one...currently i'm just using them to upgrade gear that i only managed to get one stat on the previous time because i've gotten so many >.<

    Old main has 3 sitting on her that I haven't used. Might build a 3rd spec or something, might just use and vendor. My new main has only gotten 2 (blazing chest was 1). I wish they were BoA like the tokens. RNG is an asshole.

    Been on the isle all week on several different alts and have not looted one burden. I've actually only got one since the patch launched and I don't even remember which toon that was on.

    Kill a bunch of Death Adders. I've had two burdens drop off of them.

    I feel like this too, however sometiems you get burdens from back to back rares, sometimes you go days without them. =\

    Fix burdens so they work on ALL items and not just armor ones.

    Someone said Death Adder rares are the best for dropping the Burdens. After last night, I agree. I got three, all from the adders. Maybe a reward for the lag I seem to get when killing adders

    I've seen a much reduced drop rate since the first week fixes went through. On all my characters.

    The only thing they don't work on is trinkets and that's because those are sold directly for the same amount as a burden.
    No matter what path you walk in life we all have to face Jaraxxus one day.

    I've gotten 3 burdens from the chests. I've never seen a burden drop from a chest or rare on any of my 3 toons and i routinely finish the 50/50 epoch weekly quests. RNG sucks?

  15. #15
    Funny, today I wondered about exactly the opposite. I've got 4-8 burdens over the last three weeks on all my chars combined - and my mage is shahao exalted -, but today I got 7 from evermaw/ship alone, my hunter even got one from those both rares.

    So yes, obviously rng is rng.

    I find killing rares/mobs gets you loads.

    I hate this too, on a toon i dont even play, i just went to the isle to collect chests, i get 3 burdens in a row, yet on the toon i really want to gear up, i only have 1 burden which is from the guaranteed chest and i get a shitty roll on it, life is rough.

    except that a burden can drop but a trinket wont. also what about rings, necklaces, cloaks? never tried those.
