    Salvaging unique and set items not rewarding MoTs?

    Since ANB silver started, I can't get a single MOT from salvaging, not even from out-of-event characters. Is this a bug?

    Trial level 40-60.

    What does "TL40-60" mean? I am looking for Mark of Titans.

    Salvaging set items or unique items randomly gives titans. Don’t have exact percentage of it, but items from higher trial level normally gives more titans than the lower level.

    Sounds like the epitome of RNG to me. The larger your sample size gets, the more things will fall in line.

    The game's version is shown under the "Eternium" word in the main menu.

    UPDATE: Something seems to have changed. I just salvaged about 20 rare/epic set items + 3 epic hailstorms and one green adventure shoulder pad. Got exactly 5 MoTs from this bunch, not in line with previous tests.

    Also, I haven't played much outside the event these last few days, but I made a point to log my other heroes and salvage a bunch of old extras, just to make sure this wasn't an unnanounced, event-specific, feature. The salvaged stuff included named weapons and shields, gear from several different sets, for each of the 3 classes; most of it were Epics and Legendaries, and nearly all of them level 70, except perhaps for a couple Level 67+. Again, NOT A SINGLE Mark of Titans from salvaging the whole bunch.

    My conclusions based on the evidence gathered so far are:
    1- This CANNOT be explained by coincidence or bad luck;
    2- drop chance for MoTs has been SEVERELY NERFED, or maybe even removed completely;
    3- it has been done ON PURPOSE;
    4- it afffects ALL CHARACTERS, both inside and outside the League; and
    5- it MAY or MAY NOT be limited to the duration of the event.
    I can't dismiss the possibility that there is something about your situation preventing you from salvaging MoTs, but I can say it is not a unilateral nerf. I have received a total of 53 on my event character, without much high level farming. I haven't kept tracked of all my drops or anything, but from the eyeball test I'd say it's "normal". Checking on my non-event character just now, salvaging a single legendary adventurers pants:

    Then salvaged several other pieces one at a time, and got at least 1 MoT for each, with most giving 2. All of those items were from trial 94/95, not that I think it makes any difference. Checked some BH gear with my BH, and fine again. 1 epic and 1 legendary gave no MoTs, but 1 other epic and 5 or 6 other legendaries did, which is normal.

    So if there's an issue, it is not game-wide. PC 1.3.43 at least appears fine. What platform and version are you on?

    TerryDarc, I am considering doing just that in order to get enough of a boost to hopefully reach Trial 90. That plus a box of essences which are also in short suplly to maybe finally get that RotS...
    But if this was the developer's intention all along, then it should not apply to external characters. It should instead have been openly introduced as a feature specific to the Bronze/Silver/Gold League events, just like the playtime limits.

    6. Just possibly MF wants you to visit Ruby and buy a stash of MotS? I noticed that my mains (I have two accts) both have a small pile of a dozen or so MotS.

    Most of Set items before TL 70 are only Epic, which have much lower rates for MoTs than Legendary from TL80+. Please give more information if you have salvaged epic or legendary ones before comparison.

    If there is nothing changed, it could be sub-80 trials? IIRC most of the datamining was from 80+.

    Playing BH on PC in Silver League, I've done a good amount of crafting and still have 74 MoT left over.
