# 1 Stealth nerf to loot drops?
10-24-2013, 06:58 PM
I believe the loot drops in foundry missions have been stealth nerfed. Did a foundry mission after the 8pm (E.S.T.) this evening and only got half or less of the loot drops I normally get. Thought it might be my main character so I switched to my alt, did the same mission and guess what...half the loot drops. So my fleetmate did the same mission, finished it as I am writing this and guess what...half the loot drops.

If this affected just one character that would be one thing. But three characters from two different people? That is not just coincidence. Has anyone else noticed this? The mission we did was loot-o-matic 3000.

Loot drops in Foundry missions have not been altered.

I'll be trying it in the morning. People have long feared this way coming since all the previous ec farming nerfs
Chive on and prosper, eh?

If it helps we got loot drops from the first part of the mission, but none from the second part. Usually get drops from both parts. As I said, about half the drops we normally get.

By the way, thanks for responding Bran. It is nice to know that you guys do actually read our posts. And if it is a bug and not a nerf then I apologize for the accusation.

Are you suer you didn't hit the loot cap after the first map?

No, didn't hit loot cap with either character before doing mission. I only do the mission once a day just after the reset. Could just be a bug from today's patch. Happens sometimes.

Frankly, I hate Cryptic's stealth patches. They should just come clean on all changes instead of them being REDACTED. Yes, hiding features on blogs using REDACTED is also idiotic.

did you talk to Q and get the skill boost? because the cap I think is linked to skill points. when you stop getting skill points for a mission it stops dropping loot

I can confirm that and it has been that way for a long time.
