Being low level and getting sick of swords without stances and discovering new types of melee weapons led me to get rid of this blueprint. I had no idea what mastery was. I saw another sword like the Skana, couldn't check the stats (to my knowledge) to tell if it was better or anything. I got rid of it and now, 19 mastery ranks later, it is nearly unobtainable. This makes me sad considering I now cannot get the mastery and cannot use this actually cool looking sword (I like the Ceramic Dagger's look). So thank you DE for making a cool weapon almost completely unobtainable after a single drop during a time when we don't even know how the game really works.
To OP: is it really that bad? I didn't get the drop first time I played the mission. Went back when I was MR5 or something, comfortable enough to solo Vor, farmed it a few times until it dropped. Appreciate the gulf of difference between MR5 and 19, but still - can't you just run it with low-ranked players?
And, although I hadn't tested it, can't you just reduce your conclave rating to increase drop chance? That was a rumor doing the rounds for a while - that the drop rate is inversely proportional to conclave rating. Not sure if it's true.
And as to the next post, you sir are a paragon of reasonable and measured responses. I really want to put you in charge of the nuclear launch codes.
@Sterma reducing conclave rating will not increase the drop chance. I'm not OP but if you sell your first one unknowingly like me, you are pretty much NEVER going to get it. I gave up after 100 runs (they're going to release more stuff, and mastery rank 30 is set to be max anyways).
I hear you. I've been trying to get it myself, after selling it, pretty much just like you did.
20-something Vor runs later: No Cronus... Actually, if you go to the page for Captain Vor (the dude who's supposed to drop it) it says he does drop it, but it doesn't say at what percentage.... Go figure!
weird I have a riven for it with 350% melee damage 120% range and 40% attack speed and I keep getting bp's for it when I'm trying to get seer I only get the cronus and weirdly I also get a random 1 day booster when I kill vor
