/thread if true...

Given the OP didn't link their mirror and sort of just mentioned it, I don't think it was a humblebrag or even a complaint about rarity, just a genuine query why they were getting pretty much everything you could ever want rarity-wise *except* a fairly common currency item. That would strike me as odd as well and I'd wonder if it were bugged.

But then there's this:

This dude's haul has both whetstones and armourer's scraps in it, which affect quality. Have things changed since this was posted?

edit: ah, that person might be including incidental drops from random kills. It's interesting that even then there are no gcps in there.

Not to cast aspersions, Miská, but a citation confirming what you've claimed would be good.




[Removed by Support] ya was just curious wtf is up with gcp's in those boxes i do find chisels and everything else so

Don't have a citation, I do have hundreds of Mao Kun logged on some older reddit posts.

For example this one. https://imgur.com/a/Ptnrz

That's 144 Mao Kun logged. You can see that all the quality currency are much lower in quantity then the others. That's because they only drop from monsters in the map.

Here's another 100x https://imgur.com/a/NKKPg

Same story.

It's not complaining, OP is wondering.
And given the rarity of mirrors, it's hard to imagine that when one of those (and pretty much every other currency, it seems) dropped, that no GCP would drop.
Thus the question if it could be bugged.

However, Miská linked some Mao Kun logs and it seems that the Booty Chests can "just" drop currency that does not alter the quality, so the same set of currency that an Arcanist's Strongbox can drop.

Thanks for the follow-up Miská. That's a pretty solid data set.

Also, good grief there are some people here who are just deliberately missing the point to stir shit. Stop it. This was a valid query.

The Booty Chests are restricted from dropping currency items that add quality, just like Arcanist's Strongboxes are. This is not a bug.
Thanks Mark! You're awesome.
