    Anyone figured them out yet on Mischief or Thornblade?

    Quest items and keys are random. Saw a Ring of Ancients in SolA and Unrest keys on another zone.

    So Unrest keys won't be dropping in Unrest? Ouch!

    What about regular named loot, is it totally random or regular loot + random item on a named?
  5. Elabone Augur

    It's just random. I was able to kill Pyzjin several times and she always dropped items from other nameds between 12 and 15. That's just my experience.

    I wonder if this means epic drops will be on random mobs as well
  7. KimchiGoddess Augur

    Oh you know this is a thing. But it's only random loot for the current era, not forever.

    Where does it say random loot will change? All I saw was that shared loot tables are expansion specific (i.e. you won't get kunark loot off velious mobs)

    Okay that was my bad, misunderstanding what they meant. For some reason my brain translated "within the same expansion" to actually meaning "the expansion you are currently in will drop random loot from that expansion".

    What they actually mean is that every expansion will have its loot dropping every which way within itself.

    We are all guessing, but conventional wisdom is that these mobs will still drop the epic items and no other mobs will. There's a difference between "rare" and "named" in the code. Most epic part droppers are named but not rare.

    From what I have seen, it swaps the whole loot-table.

    We picked off Rahotep (L16) in NRo and looted what would otherwise be on the Thaumaturgist (L18) from Befallen.
    Blackened Wand
    Thaumaturgist's Robe
    Dagger of Marnek
    Bronze Spear

    Picked off Rahotep again...
    T-robe & Dagger of Marnek (again)
    Hollwed Iron Mask

    Next kill:
    Thunderhoof quiver
    Permafrost crystals
    Wooly Spider Silk Net
