First Puprle Loot Drop EVER!
 
I just got my first Very Rare drop ever.

Mk III Armor, on my Klingon. In 76 days of playing this is the first thing of its kind(Very Rare Armor) I have ever gotten as a loot drop.

Is it really THAT rare? Or did something change in one of the recent updates?

The only VR drops I ever got was from the Q event earlier this year (and they weren't that rare for that event), and from the 'appropriate level item' crates from the Borg RA event. I have never, in a little under a year of playing, received a VR item from a mission or NPC drop. Ever.

Never received one either. If it weren't for crafting I'd never have any high end gear.

I've only gotten a couple Very Rares and a handful of Rares as loot drops and I've been playing since beta. So yeah, pretty darn rare.

Warzones are good for a purple if you win.

Also, play on elite.

I had 2 Very Rare drops (not counting STF's and Warzones):

1: Armor from first Deferi EP

2: A shield In a DSE in GammaO

And I've played since headstart.

So yea... they are that rare... at least untill you hit VA, at wich time, VR stuff becomes common, cause you can pick it up at every vendor and their brother.

The only very rare I ever received was a purple photon torpedo launcher mk viii.

Wow, I guess I have dumb luck. On Holo both of my toons got purple drops very early (each had a very useful MK I & II purple drop or two) and I started very recently (early September).
