    Relinquished relic RNG?

    Has anyone noticed the nethershard relics not upgrading?
    I just spent 200,000 shards on 40 relics. Of those 40, two upgraded only 5 levels.
    Nothing above 885.

    Just RNG being a total jerk? Seems like in the past I've seen the other gear from that vendor titanforge quite a bit.

    It's just random numbers being random.

    RNG just being RNG, mean and evil.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    What a waste, should have spent them on trinkets. Relics are much easier to get drop or get given.

    I just got ilvl 900 pants with a socket for my warrior the other day, so it just sounds like really bad RNG for you.

    Just to show, forgot they removed the Activity tab though...

    Edit, also realized you said relic specifically. Did get an 890 for that also the other day, but it was a relic I already had a 900 for, so it was off specced into Arms.

    Also don't judge the unxmoged shoulders, I forgot to fix that.

    Confirmed the relics can't titanforge. I think.

    If anyone doesn't think Blizzard is turning knobs all the time, they are delusional.

    It's very likely that different activities/sources of drops have different chances to upgrade. For example, I've done hundreds of M+ with my crew now and we notice maybe 1 in 10-15 pieces titanforge. When we RBG'd a lot, that number was very close to 1 in 3 (and this is with lots of gear, not single, double digit). In general, PvP seems to have a very high chance to upgrade in some manner.

    I would not be surprised if relinquished relics specifically are very unlikely to TF. Hell, doing the netherportal boss farming and getting swarmed with gear the highest I've ever seen a dauntless piece TF is 15 ilevels.

    I'm afraid they can, yesterday I got a 910 relinquished titanforged relic.

    I know it was sarcasm. So many people think not getting lucky means it's impossible.

    How the heck did you have 200k nethershards in the first place is what I want to know? Exactly how much time do you spend in that zone farming every day??

    Doing invasions, killing the rare elites on the island, farming Sentinax when it was a thing, opening treasure chests, the class hall mission, and/or getting lucky with the gambling area. It's not that hard to save them up, especially if you planned on spending them after 7.2.5 released.
    I stopped doing most of those things actively, only when I'm bored, and I've gotten about 15,000 over a few days of doing almost nothing.

    I have 448k right now and I've never farmed Sentinax. I've just never spent any shards on anything besides the tabard, toys, and pets.

Sure, they do shit wrong all the time, but that doesn't mean they should turn to people with even less experience in the field, if not literally 0 experience, to do their jobs for them." - TyrannicalPuppy
