Anyone know what the drop rate is on the pristine version of the greys are? I read 5%. I'm also done with all of the collector's and I have two pristines left to get for the achievement.

Is it just bad rng that I'm not getting it?
5% is all i have heard of a common find turning into a Pristine. Some take longer than others, where one Pristine took me the second time restoring it to my last Pristine forcing me to restore it 56 times.

It gets aggravating, but the title and satisfaction of completing it is well worth it.

It's not actually 'bad rng'. Let's say you have an equal chance of getting any particular common. If you've got 19/20 pristines already, that means only 1 in 20 possible commons has a chance to finish your achievement. Given a 5% chance at pristine, that means you'd expect to solve 400 commons to go from 19/20 to 20/20.
Ive changed my mind. This acheev is a.o.k. by me!!
