If you’re following the loot saga of Anthem, you might have begun to suspect that nothing BioWare could do would actually make everyone happy. Nevertheless, the studio patched its seemingly struggling looter-shooter today with a tiny server-side update that it characterizes as “notable changes to the loot drop rate.” Specifically, here’s what’s changed:
“Masterwork & Legendary drop rates have been increased for Grandmaster 2 and Grandmaster 3 difficulty levels. Masterwork & Legendary drop rates have been increased for harder enemies at all difficulty levels. This includes: Legendary Titan, Epic Titan, Legendary Fury, Legendary Acid Ursix and Legendary Luminary Elder.”
It’s not entirely clear just how much those drops have been increased yet, but we suspect that the community will be testing that post haste. Reddit overall seems pretty pleased, though the feedback thread is loaded with more requests. As for those promised future updates? “Yeah, we aren’t ready to give specifics on future stuff yet, but the team is working hard over here,” BioWare says.
