Helping a new player get some reds is what veterans want to do right?
Well my buddy opened 40 chests of Legend rarity, 1 Emp, 1 General, 24 Commons, 14 Peasant. Zero reds. My previous experience is that 2 reds should have dropped from that many.
My first red was from a commendation when my item power level was around 230. I don’t remember my hero level.
So the potential bug is that there is a hidden red cap on chests, but that you can play legend. If I had to guess you need to be level 30, or maybe power 600 before reds can drop. So a new player hoping to jump-start their leveling by getting carried actually gets nothing.
Do I tell my buddy to sod off and come back once they are level thirty and item power 300? It seems pointless to be able to play legend without getting the benefits thereof.
This game already has a horrendous leveling system that requires too much exp AND grinding out chests. It NEEDS to be simplified and bonus exp alone can’t suffice.
