What is with the rng for Secrets of the Empire?

I've been fullclearing ToT since the third week, and before the start of this week I've killed a total of 71 distinct bosses in ToT (I'm aware that we can only get one from a boss a week).

All I have to show for it after 7 weeks is 17 secrets. That's an average of 2.4 secrets a week!. At the start of this week, I was sure I'd get the last 3 I needed, but I only got 2 secrets after killing all 12 bosses in LFR.

Is this the intended drop rate? This is ridiculous, most people I know got their meta 1-2 weeks ago, and I will have to wait until next week.

I've been in for every single throne kill.

Never a missed day, never sat on a fight.

I did a full LFR yesterday and barely got my meta (last secret off of the last boss.) About half the raid got them a week or 2 ago.

Our first meta is the person who sat the most. RNG is RNG

I have 4. How can you complain about having 17.

The funny thing is when I got my 20 last night off of Jin'rokh, I got 2 more on the next three bosses.

Oh Blizz, how you toy with me.

But yeah, !@#$ty RNG, WOO!

What is the drop rate supposed to be? I'd be surprised if it was more than 25% per boss.

Killed Lei Shen week 1, sure I've sat my share of bosses, but I've generally caught the lost chances with LFR.

16/20 =(

The Titan Runestones you need to collect are even worse. Don't worry

15/20, full clears every week. Guildmate that started a new character at the start of the tier and has been on the quest for 2 weeks is about to pass me. Its really annoying.

Makes you feel any better, this is the first week I've been on that quest... 12/12 LFR... 4/12 normal(continuing tonight). I've gotten zero.

These give no measureable gain at the moment, though, since we don't know 5.3's intended release target.

Got 7-8 last week. Needed 1 this week... got it on Durumu >.>

LFR seems to have a lower drop rate. Players from my group who avoid/don't run LFR already have the legendary.

Well I'm up to 17, and have 4 more bosses left to kill this week (the system should give a chance at those once per boss in lfr or regular raids).

From what I've heard though you need a ToT helm to use the meta... so if I don't get one, I'll just have one sitting in my inventory like the sha touched weapon was for a while.

Titan Runestones might not be much better. 0 this week and 1 last week.
