This thread is a great example of this ongoing debate. I’ve been enjoying all of the responses I’ve been reading here, and in the other threads, too. Thanks for working to keep it constructive.
Out of sheer, goat-like curiosity, I’d like to gather specific feedback by asking some targeted questions. Please feel to chime in (and, if you can, indulge us with a bit more than a simple “yes” or “no” in response)!
What specifically is it about the anniversary buff's increased drop rate that feels good?
What are you doing with the extra items you find?
Are you finding more upgrades?
Are you Enchanting more frequently?
Are you crafting more?
Has the buff had any downsides or negative effects for you personally? If yes, what are they?
What game mode and difficulty level have you been playing on?
