Oh man! If that’s true it’s definitely a bug! Rare items at level 100 shouldn’t be able to drop with less than 22FP. It would be a huge help to us if you could submit a bug report with a video showing it in game and note which OS you’re using. If you’re running any 3rd party tools or anything like that, it would be helpful to know.

We take the credibility of our systems pretty seriously, and would want to investigate if possible. Any info you can provide is hugely helpful.

Empowered or not and corruption levels have no effect on it.

If you get to where you can get a video of it happening, I would be very interested to see it.

Other zones can be level 100 too. Like for example arena and dungeons.

Your video card software has video capture built in. Use this to get a clip https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/geforce-experience/shadowplay/ It will even let you start taking the clip after you want to start recording it. Kinda like being able to go back in time.

I feel like we might be going round in circles a bit. I’d like to set a few expectations that might help. T20s are not early gear. We expect to see people often entering empowering monos with T17-T19 gear in several slots on far from optimized builds. Well itemized T22s are very rare and are getting into that min/max range. Hoping to find T27+ gear will only lead to disappointment. Attempting to get appropriately stated T27+ gear will be an exercise in futility.

I fully hear you that you disagree with this and don’t like it. We are always looking to improve the item systems. We are currently pretty happy with the tier progression at the moment and it is unlikely to see significant change pre-1.0. I understand that the prospect of hypothetical T25+ gear existing puts pressure on some expectations for loot drops but we aren’t designing that gear to be the normal “finished character” gear range.

Thanks for the feedback. I don’t agree with the premise that the game isn’t casual or new player friendly. I also don’t agree that the crafting system contributes to this. I think the crafting system is one of the strengths that helps make the game casual and new player friendly.
