rarity drop rate?

#1Elucid8DPosted 9/12/2012 10:41:11 PM
My friend seems to insists that if you kill higher level monsters you would get higher chance to get more rare items.

For instance, a level 20 killing level 30 mobs would get rarer items than a level 30 killing the same mobs.

Is this true for guild wars 2? or any other mainstream mmo's for that matter?

I reworded that because I don't think i worded it well enough last time; is it still true? Can anyone still confirm because he swears on his life this is true and I do not.

Yes, fighting mobs that are more challenging apparently rewards you with bonus xp / higher drop rates, if the in game hint system is to be believed.

That's nice to know...

Was this the same way in WoW (Forgive me for bringing such a game into this board!) I played that game quite a bit and never heard anything like that.
