Blizzard and the Burden of Eternity algorithm

If you have all noticed as you have progressed through the Timeless isle and got loot for your character and for alts there is one elusive thing....the Burden of Eternity. If you have played the game enough you will notice a common drop rate for items. The beginning of a quest you get a drop rate for those items like multiple Burdens of Eternity at the beginning of your timeless isle runs, then they stop...drag on forever and you get them every soo often. But as you near the end of your needs for upgrading gear for Burdens of eternity, the drop rate actually increases to the point where you have all the burdens you need, all your TI items are upgraded and still get a lot of burdens of eternity...this is because the system recognizes you don't need that many now, you can't trade them to other characters and so it gives you the burdens which are useless to you now.

You know what is discouraging? going there with a friend and having to BUY a burden because you haven't gotten on to drop off anything in months, and then your friend gets 4 more just playing the box game in the cave with about 10 keys (I went through about 20k coins and got nothing but more coins and that stupid pet I can't do anything with except sell. Just makes me want to delete my character and quit .

My friend got most of his from the mobs of ordos before the gate houlon is at. He got a bunch so try there. I also think being in a party increases your drops because that's the whole point of timeless isle.

You guys are welcome to group with me and we can try to get some. Just let me know.

So you want to quit because you can't get welfare epics that don't do anything for you anyway since you don't raid?

Sheesh
