Q:

Dear ANet,

On one hand, a post from Robert Hrouda on the “Changes to Dungeon loot”:

We also gave those three sub-bosses a guaranteed item called a “Bag of Wondrous Goods” which will give the players a consumable Karma item worth 400 karma, and a consumable monetary item worth up to 4 silver.

On the other, the patch notes by Mark Katzbach:
Story and explorable bosses and encounters have a chance to drop Bags of Wondrous Goods, which contain coins and karma. Bags of Wondrous Goods obtained in explorable mode also contain dungeon tokens.

So, which one have you chosen to implement after all, given the posts have like 1 hour apart?

Thanks!

Did 6 dungeons in the past hour, and it seems to be one per boss that you can normally loot.

Just did AC explorable with the new bags, loot drops were not consistent. On first clear spider queen dropped a 35 green item and no bag for me, subsequent runs I got the new loot bags. This is an issue I noticed in AC pre patch where some mobs (queen and kholer most noticably) sometimes dropped unscaled loot. Should SQ be dropping a bag for each level 80 player per kill and is this in fact a bug with unscaled loot dropping?

Interesting, Now you mention it. Even though we did get the new bags for the three bosses, I did notice one of them gave me only lvl 35 loot. I just assumed that was normal that you sometimes get lvl 35 things and didn’t really look too closely at what I got.

We just did all 3 AC paths twice, and we noticed that if you get the special “unique” masterwork item, it seems to replace the bag. Otherwise, we’d get the bag every time. Also, it only dropped from the legendary bosses: Spider Queen, Kholer, and whatever end boss you had for that path. The masterwork unique seems to rob your profit from one of the bags, but at least the boss drops 10s in coins.

They did say that only 3 sub-bosses drop the bag not the others. They selected 3 in each dungeon to drop the bag so, don’t think it’s anything to do with masterwork items.

What I’m saying is that I got the bag every time, except when there was the unique masterwork item, which seems to have replaced the bag. The same situation happened to the other people in my group. On most of my runs, I got the bag every time from the spider queen, kholer, and the end path legendary.

Did all 3 paths of TA, got 2 bags each run (18 additional tokens, karma varied between 300 and 400, maybe because of level).
One dropped from the jungle wurm/vine each time, and I think I got the other ones from Leurent/Mesmer/Mrs.Transformsintospider.

So there wasn’t one from Spider/Archer-room/Mega-Husk?
I was thinking you’d get one from any boss that would normally give a chest, but seems not.

This is not occurring. Sometimes the bag is not given, but instead recieved is a green accessory, which is at the scaled level of the character, not the genuine level.

It’s 3 bags per run in TA (possibly, the masterwork Jewelry takes the bag drop slot).

Up – Wurm, Malrona, Fyonna
Forward/Foward – Wurm, Champ Warder on the bridge in front of archers, Leurent
Forward Up – Wurm, Defiler, Vevina
