I think its fair to say that drop rates in this game are ridiculously unbalanced and need some adjustments. What, in your opinion, should drop rates be for non-raid bosses? Personally, I would like to see 20% drop rates, but I could handle 5%.

20% for a super uber Rare Drop ( No THanks ) I think it should be 1% or lower

for regular bosses, id say 5% for their specific drop and .5 to 1% for other legendaries based on how good it is

Drop rates are fine. Except for the bugged ones, obviously.

1) 10% gives me incentive to farm for my "perfect" version of a given weapon.

2) 5% gives me incentive to stop after getting any flavor

3) 1% gives me incentive to start a "LF" thread.

I'd say 50%, considering there are several legendary that each boss drops, and the fact that you have to grind for a lot longer for specific stats on gear.

This is absurd. There are people that haven't gotten The Goo King Sword in Breath of Fire 3 for the PSX and *THAT* had a 20% drop rate. I'm talking about old pros that still play this game today haven't gotten that sword. Hell I got it at level 70ish and anyone whose played that games knows the EXP needed to do that.

How can anyone NOT want a higher drop rate for this game? What you don't enjoy actually finishing farming and getting on with actually *PLAYING* the game?

It's optional. You choose to sit there for *hours* because you MUST have every ultimately rare item in the game.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

Increase to 10% and add a lot more legendaries.

And you don't want something that makes that EASIER? Hell, it isn't even this isn't even the case with getting every rare item. For some of us, it is just one legendary. I had a friend killing Doc Mercy for ONE Infinity. That's absurd.
