There is an absurd rarity in available cosmetics with the current system, we all know the pain of it. The drop rates are so poor its not something thats possible to “farm” in the traditional gamer sense. All successful in game farming mechanics have some way of rewarding a player a little bit, in this game, they enjoy repeatedly kicking you in the nuts every day all day for weeks (months?) on end.
They improved it a little bit at least with the weekly bogenhafen boxes, which limits anyone to 3 new skins/cosmetics guaranteed a week. Which isnt bad compared to how atrocious cosmetics drops are from commendation boxes! This is actually such a massive improvement over the previous system guys it really is if you crunched the math with these drop rates.
I just opened 200 commendation boxes, just for fun, on various careers. I didnt get anything at all, and tbh it didnt bother me. Expect nothing from this silly RnG system
Not only that, most of the stuff you can unlock, does not even match with the wardrobe skins. That wide variety of looks/costumes etc, its just not in this game. Some careers have some (handful) of cool headpieces but thats it. This isnt a go to town customization game like modern MMOs.
I don’t think the serious players play this game for the loot or cosmetics anymore, I certaintly don’t. That ship has sailed… cosmetics in V2? What cosmetics? Lol
