Too Many Forgotten Souls!

  • And not just because of the 100% drop from ubers.

    I am refering rifts.Since they became viable for farming in last patch,I mostly spend 90% of my farming time doing them,and that brings me to the question I'm sure was asked here:

    Why only forgotten souls and not a legendary drop from the boss?
    I know its not accurate data and the sample size is too small but just for the sake of numbers I would say that according to my drop rate,(after completing about 300 rifts since last patch)I would think there is a 20-25% chance to drop a soul.

    Again,why not a legendary? most of them would not be an upgrade if you farmed the game for a while anyways,and would be salvaged anyways,so what is the point? For the mere sound of legendary drop?

    I just want to say that I have about 65+ forgotten souls now,and the numbers are rising.
    In my opinion,players should be restricted by this type of resource,and there are too many of them at the moment.
    But then again,I am playing a lot...

    We recognized that Rift Bosses needed a bit more incentive, and we also wanted to make Enchanting more accessible. By contrast, we're still looking at how frequently players are obtaining Legendary items, and how they're getting them. We'll make selective adjustments to acquiring Legendary items if it's needed, but the process is a bit more complicated.

    It’s also worth noting that Legendaries can also drop off of Rift Bosses, and they’re a separate table from Forgotten Souls. You can definitely get both a Forgotten Soul and a Legendary off a Rift Boss at the same time.

    As a lot of fellow players have mentioned in this thread, a surplus of Forgotten Souls is not a common problem. Personally, I'm always out of them as I'm still trying to Enchant several items, so congrats on managing to have a healthy stockpile!
