Fully convinced that Warrior drop rate has increased

I killed the Warrior some time around last Wednesday. He dropped my ~lvl 30 Salvador a Volcano.

I killed him again today, in TVHM; he dropped a level 50 Impaler.

My luck in this game has ALWAYS been abysmal... yet both times I've killed the warrior, he's dropped legendaries?

Hey, maybe it's just good luck, but I don't think so. I don't have that kind of luck.

Not 100% sure, but I think when you kill him in the quest line, whether it be 1 or 2 play through, he will almost always drop a legendary. I have 3 characters at 50 and he has always dropped in the quest line, but have never got a drop from him farming.

Lol dude it took me ~ 80 kills to get him to drop one cc. Then I tried farming him again lately after a few months of rest and his drops have returned to poo poo.

I think you just got lucky, but either way congrats man :)

if you killed him and then called in the moonshot, the chance of a drop is increased 1000 fold.

Yeah, he definitely has at least a 75% drop rate when you moonshot him. After that, the rate drops to something like 1%.

When you kill him with the moonshot, he will only drop a certain pool of oranges
Volcano
CC
Impaler
Leech
Flakker

When you kill him post-moonshot, he can drop pretty much anything.....but at a much, much, lower rate.

I got a Deliverence when moonshot farming. So he can still drop other things like usual, just not very often.

Interesting....... he probably keeps the same low drop rate for any oranges all the time, even when moonshotting. But, those 5 I listed are jacked up to the high rate for the moonshot. This is good stuff....informative.
