Kandela useless

General Discussion
Finally got ancients on all my gear except one ring. Kandela is never going to drop primals, so what use is she? And all these blood shards?

Pretty much. She also is nicer if you call her by her actual name.
Sorry, Kadala.
There is a Ceylonese curry called Kadala puripuu. She could at least serve us that.

Wrong.

My only usable primal, the Quiver of my Impale Demon Hunter, is from Kadala.

Kadala and looting by running rifts/bounties/greater rifts whatever, have the same chance of an item appear as Ancient or Primal. Kanai's Cube even though it's easier and plentiful tries, have less chance for an item to appear as an Ancient or Primal. That means you don't try Kanai's until you have loads of crafting mats at your disposal or the item you want already have a real small pool of possibilities.

Another thing to reconsider is how pricey some pieces (weapons and off-hands) at Kadala are, so you better gear up first from Cube then run GRifts to hit up Kadala over and over again, until you stack a nice amount of DBs and FSouls. Better approach is upgrading the rares you got from Kadala at the cube to see what gives so far, then smelting every trash you got and start over again by clearing rifts.

I don't know what you're talking about Kadala Dropped a 'nice' pair a Primal Kelms(?) Bracers for me, when trying to roll Ancient wraps of clarity ( I still haven't got them either :P )
From my experience, Kadala has dropped a disproportionately high number of Primal items, compared to the large number of legendary items I pick up in Rifts. Of course, those Primal items are often useless... except for that one time, when I received a Primal pair of set pants while gambling for an Ancient variant. Score!

Kadala is fickle. Sometimes she likes you, but other times you're much better off swallowing the Bloodshards and hoping that, once they reach the end of your digestive tract, they come out as something better. A Horadric Hamburger, maybe?
Kadala dropped my wizard amulet.
This is how it seems to work and it is not a bad thing. If you think about everything you had to wait to get and were excited about it, then it is most likely the things you had to either work harder to get or wait the longest.

Every player here can only speak from their own experiences.
But the general consensus and that is said loosely, is that you can have a single rift or single day and get a load of primal's and then nothing for a month. For me that is pretty correct.
It is truly a random drop.
Funny how OP renamed her "Kandela" (candela means fire in Spanish).
She just keeps my crafting mat up to stock. Never get anything usefull from here since they nerfed her.
Primal bombardier's ruck, courtesy Kadala.
This thread reminds me of a time when Tyrone was actually useful for farming in Act 3. And then they nerfed him.
Maybe she doesn't like being called Kandela?

You are wasting your time with her on RINGS. There are so many rings that you might have a 0.01% chance to get what you want.

That is so true on her If you need Yellows she is really good at that. You are wrong about the Nerf thing she has been that way from day one.

The sad part is you farm for shard and 99% of the time she will give mostly yellows. Plus you get the same brown crap all the time from her. I have spend almost 45,000 shard on her and have not got one ancient for my main character.

I'm 100% sure they nerfed here outside of seasons. You get nothing but crap from her with your non season char.

There are no differences in drop rates or anything else between season and non-season. Just like there are no differences between Hardcore and Softcore drop rates or mechanics.
