BioWare Increases Loot Drops for Anthem Grandmaster Levels

It appears BioWare got the message from their fans about their displeasure with item drops in Anthem and decided to correct the matter a little this past week. The developers took to Reddit over the weekend to let fans know they had made increases to the Masterwork and Legendary drop rates, but more importantly, they have increased the rates for Grandmaster 2 and 3. We have the notes about the updated drops below, but hopefully, this is the start of expanding the drops all-around in Anthem.

In the latest server-side update, we’ve made some notable changes to the loot drop rate in specific scenarios, which will take effect immediately in a server-side tuning update (i.e. you will not need to download anything.)

These changes include:

  • Masterwork & Legendary drop rates have been increased for Grandmaster 2 and Grandmaster 3 difficulty levels.

  • Masterwork & Legendary drop rates have been increased for harder enemies at all difficulty levels. This includes: Legendary Ancient Ash Titan, Elite Ancient Ash Titan, Legendary Fury, Legendary Ursix, and Legendary Luminary.

As a reminder of Chad’s post on Twitter last weekend, the team is planning to make significant changes to loot in the coming months, but we’re starting with some incremental changes (like today’s,) so we can better navigate that evolution.
