Hi,

  • in the TU 16 patch notes it states "Starting from World Tier 5 and above, Exotic components will now have a chance to drop from Control Points Chests starting from Alert level 3".

We cleared ALL control points on Heroic on a 4-man group map and we had 0 exotic components dropped. Either the droprate for them is insanely low or it doesnt work.
I also don't know ANY guy who got a component from that chests, and i play a lot.

  • it also states in the patch-notes "Starting from World Tier 5 and above, Exotic items will now have a small chance to drop from any NPC in the entire game, starting from Challenging difficulty".

In the session mentioned we had 2 exotics drop in open world, which is quite low considering we were playing in a group of 4 on heroic for several hours.

Long story short, i dont think the drop-rates for Exotics and Exotic components are working as intened, can you please have look into this?

thanks a lot!

Hey everyone!

I'm sorry to hear you've been having a streak of bad luck when it came to Exotic item drops.

This doesn't appear to be a bug, as the loot that drops is randomized, it's possible to have streaks of good (and bad) luck, where either many exotics drop, or very few.

That said, the team is always monitoring the loot situation, to make sure adjustments can be made where needed.
