Quest reward items from red chests?

#1ValensGhostPosted 3/16/2014 3:25:32 PM
Last night I found a Deadly Bloom in the red chest in the slab stronghold.

I know random is random and that any item supposedly has a chance to drop from any suitable loot source, but I don't recall ever randomly FINDING a quest reward item, and I've been playing since day one.

Anyone else ever seen this happen? Was I just really lucky, or have I just been really unlucky to have never seen this before? Either way it seems kind of weird.

Who gives a s*** what you believe? In thirty seconds you'll be dead, and I'll blow this place up and be home in time for Corn Flakes.

Just looked at that after posting (yeah, I know I should do that the other way around).

Still weird.

Yeah I actually got Deadly Bloom from the snowman loot train a few weeks back. Wonder if deadly bloom appears more often than some other quest reward items?

I got a Deadly Bloom from the dragons about a month ago, but I've never found any other quest rewards from non-standard locations.

Im fairly certain that the deadly bloom is the only quest reward able to be found in through other sources, for whatever reason. Also as the wiki says its supposed to be a legendary but coding blah blah error made it purple.

It would've been nice if other quest rewards could be found in chests and such.

Deadly bloom is the only quest reward item that you can get as a random drop.
