    Hello there , i was thinking if you could turn up the drop rate on these? currently they only drop from raids and even raiding every week since expansion came out the raid force im in have yet to see a single one
    I know they are supposed to be rare but currently i think they are to rare
    I was also thinking with upcoming expansion you could make these have a chance to drop in heroics

    increasing dropchance will lower revenue from instant research. the low drop chance does not exist by accident although it is honest to assume that a change in drop chance can happen by accident considering the amount of mistakes appearing out of nowhere in this game.

    Ronjah, I think you're wrong because you can't research ancient versions.

    I'm sure in the future there will be a vendor where you can buy them for 50m+ platin like the class specific ancient spells for 10m

    But the droprate is truely so low that some spells have not been discoverd yet

    you've got more chance of getting the new bat mount from NOTD and you can't research the ancient tier so it's not worth worrying about.

    There's a vendor who sells Ancients? Who and where?

    The merchant is Kuen Nozun (The Phoenix Sage) in Nye'Caelona (/way -225 91 -242). He's in the same area as Sarya Val'Sara and the Geomancer trainer Aranolh Tol'Ren, floating at a bookcase in the back right.

    ok but the argument still stands.

    No that was literally your entire argument

    Ancients are just that Ancient, there is a reason they are super rare, they don't need their drop chance "turned up".

    Then you didn't understand it. Higher drop chance of whatever, ancient or not, ascension spells will decrease willingness to use alternative means to get it (instant research).

    He asked for higher drop rate on ancients which cannot be purchased. If you have to have the gm before you can scribe the ancient, it would actually increase revenue. I got the ancient implosion the other day and I would bet many on that raid would have paid to gm it if they got the drop.

    From what I've heard, Trakanon (the end game boss for raiding) Has a higher chance to drop ancient ascensions. Makes sense, Because a few of them have been discovered recently as trakanon has died.
