[12981] Hot And Cold

#1 » Post by Raavi » 14 Dec 2013 14:56


1. Drop rate for the Essence of Ice (http://www.wowhead.com/item=42246) is wrong. After killing 3 full respawns (21 Revenants) I got 8 essences while the drop rate should be 100%

2. Essence of Ice doesn't always work. Out of 8 attempts I got 5 Frozen Iron Scraps. In remaining 3 cases the "bullet" from the essence went into the ground or nearby Seething Revenant even thou there were plenty of Smoldering Scraps closer.

Well cant confirm drop chance (wowhead still stays 69% but if you read comments on wowhead it does give 2 pieces of information

1) Also, you shouldnt stand too close when using the Essence. Sometimes they won't work.
2) I tried to use one while fighting a Seething Revenant: consumed the essence, didn't target a nearby piece of scrap. After the combat ended, I stood in the same place and was able to use the other 2 in my inventory, targeting pieces of scrap a good 10-15 yards away.

OK, today's test:
15 kills gave 6 essences which is definetly not 69%.
Also - note that Wowhead has it's 69% based on:
1. Historical stats
2. ALL kills, including those made by people who did not have the quest and/or already have the quest complete

Comments below clearly state that as of patch 3.3.0 the requirement changed from 5 to 6 but drop rate increased to 100%:

As of 3.3, the requirement seems to be 6 scraps instead of 5.

you are right, however it also seems like essence of ice is now a 100% drop rate. i got 6 in a row. Fair trade off having to do 1 more, but it being a 100% drop.

Interesting to note, now with the 100% droprate, this is completable before the Katy Perry song has played out :P
Today somehow all 6 essences that I got gave me 6 scraps correctly

Another test today - 14 kills so far gave me 5 essences which sets drop rate at around 35%
Out of those 5 essences 2 failed to work correctly.

21 kills gave me 9 essences
Out of those 4 failed

This is a very frustrating daily...
