# 1 First Puprle Loot Drop EVER!
10-14-2011, 11:17 PM
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.

I haven't played a lot on Holo in about 1.5 months, but at that time, Elite Loot was bugged. I played for 5 days and got like 6 Uncommons and 1 rare total. On Advanced, I was getting that much every day. I don't know if they've fixed this or not.

A handful of rare drops. Now thats strange. Ive been playing not so very long (But I leveled up my first few toons on elite) and I got more then a handful of Blue's, whole inventories full of it. (Soloing)
Team up with your friends on elite, and u get even more.

For purples, you're right. They hardly drop just like that. I think more people in team, more chance of a purple drop. (or blue drops even).

You're better off trying to win a Fleet action.

I actually got a Purple bridge officer I still have yet to have my join my crew or use as trainer. I bought it from the Exchange for cheap without realizing what rarity it was, months ago.
