Neverwinter is boosting the drop rates of premium items in dungeons

There is a bit of a problem with the premium items that can be awarded at the end of dungeons in Neverwinter. For example, you may be looking at that first line and wondering what the heck it’s talking about, because the drops are so uncommon that they are scarcely even spoken of in legends. That would be the core of the problem, and it is also what the team is planning to address by rebuilding these drop titles to actually drop valuable things more often.

Aside from companions and mounts, players will be able to earn bags, wards, tradebars, and a variety of other useful things. The drop rate is still not 100%, but longer and more difficult content should have improved odds of dropping a premium item for players when all is said and done. And hopefully the upcoming changes will make those odds somewhat more reliable than the current “almost never.”

Seriously just stop spamming me with lockbox messages and I’ll play.

But they want you to know xXxRoxors69xXx got something good out of their lockbox and maybe you should buy some keys to see if you’re the next lucky winner!

And I only know because of you, since I’m not playing. :)

It still kind of works – when the new lootbox came out with a new tier (mythic) mount, the spam was ridiculous – like 1 message every second, to the degree that people thought they must be bugged and dropping in every lootbox. So of course loads of people bought keys…

(They weren’t, the rate is 0.5%)

They’ve moved a bit away from using lootboxes as effectively the driving force of the economy, I think because they know legislation is coming sooner or later and they need to be ready to dump them when it comes. You still get the spam when someone gets a mount though.

And the spam’s the important thing to me, really. Any UI interference is. It communicates you’re a junk game that wants to junk up my screen.
