EA has confirmed that it’s made “some notable changes to the loot drop rate” in Anthem.
Whilst only divulging that the changes were coming to “specific scenarios”, the short-n-sweet update on the official website confirmed the server-side update (which means you don’t have to download or apply it to your local system) would immediately boost the chances of top-tier gear drops at the game’s highest difficulty levels… as well as some improvements for the hardest enemies on any difficulty setting, too.
“In the latest server-side update, we’ve made some notable changes to the loot drop rate in specific scenarios, which will take effect immediately in a server-side tuning update,” EA said. “These changes include: Masterwork & Legendary drop rates have been increased for Grandmaster 2 and Grandmaster 3 difficulty levels, and Masterwork & Legendary drop rates have been increased for harder enemies at all difficulty levels. This includes: Legendary Ancient Ash Titan, Elite Ancient Ash Titan, Legendary Fury, Legendary Ursix and Legendary Luminary.”
