    I have been doing the overseer system, and the gamble crate on the status merchant, and heroic runs, and I am underwhelmed with this year's tables. I sent out 9 overseer quests yesterday, and got returned 5 fragments of planar energy, some solo collection shiny I don't need (and could have bought from the broker cheaply) and the last same as for my mission crates from my heroic runs: infusers, infusers, infusers. I'm overwhelmed (and underwhelmed) with infusers, essences of chaos and fragments of planar energies. I thought the chances of these were supposed to be lowered a few months back. But, where are the adornment recipes? Where are the infuser recipes? Where are the Empyral/Shadowed recipes (particularly volume 17 for all classes!) Where are the upgraded pieces of gear that were supposed to be added? I see a charm in the mission crate that has a quest attached to it...however, we've been playing since December, and I haven't seen it on any alt yet, and I run between 3-5 alts a day through stuff. Please, please. Do something about the reward percentages on these things. They are the worst percentages I have ever seen in game. I do not say that lightly. I have been playing at least 14 years....(actually, quite a bit longer. I seem to have lost track since Vet Rewards were removed from the game.) These are, by far, the worst loot rewards ever available from RNG.

    I feel your pain. I have a lot of toons and haven't seen the recipes you mention. Heck, I haven't even seen fragments of planar energy at all. I have to concur that this is the worst expansion for drops in all my playing time. Maybe that's why Maj'dul crashed about 40 minutes ago--it was the embarrassment of yet another underwhelming OS drop, haha.

    I am not the most prolific poster to the forums and it takes a bit to motivate me, but this topic has been a sore spot for me thru several xpacs and has come to the forefront very specifically in this one. I have run analysis form groups and raids to determine that the RNG generator that is used in this game is not very random. Through many raids and groups I have watched the same handful of people win the majority of loot - shinies - infusers - etc and now in this same xpac it became a crowd of people that perpetually got the better items in the first round of overseer loot - again - from this amazing NOT RNG generator. Now there is a systematic rollback to a useless game item (overseer) similar to the the other useless and failed games were perpetrated over the years - too bad that they couldn't come up with a second raid quest - fix dad content - instead the concentration has been RNG with a fail generator - way to piss people off. With no opportunity to earn items the game is no longer EVERquest - but something more akin to roulette with worse odds. I only have 1250 ish days played since near start so maybe I am jaded, the idea to try new things is not bad but staying in the core vision seems ro have turned into desperation ,,,,,
