Agents, incoming State of the Game transmission:

During the last State of the Game, Community Developers Petter Mårtensson and Yannick Banchereau showcased community content (including a rogue kitten!) and briefly addressed classified gear drop rates.

This week, Petter was joined by Game Designer James Norris from Ubisoft Leamington to discuss the upcoming changes to end-game loot availability, sources of Division tech & improvements to the season pass supply drops.

One of the recent hot topics within the community have been drop rates, so we decided that today’s stream would focus on providing more insight into what we’re planning for the future. We will be making a number of changes in these areas based on community feedback, including changes to the availability of both end-game gear, division tech and improvements to the Season Pass supply drop rewards.

  • New Classified Caches
    • During Global Events – Targeted classified gear set caches will be available. Each event will have 4 caches available for purchase containing the event’s corresponding sets.
    • Off season – A classified cache will be available for purchase, containing a guaranteed classified drop. It will be priced at 2500 phoenix credits and will not be limited to Global Events.
  • Classified drop rates will be increased across the board to 6% (from 3%).
  • Legendary missions will have a 20% chance of classified drops.
  • Season Pass supply drops will have a 10% chance to drop a classified gear piece and will in addition contain 100 Division tech.
  • Weekly assignments rewards will include 100 Division tech.
  • Daily assignments rewards will include 25 Division tech.
  • All vendor exotics will be removed from the loot pool.
  • All non-vendor exotics will be added to the open world boss loot pool.
  • Resistance bosses will reward 100 Global Event tokens each.

Keep in mind that these changes are not in the live game just yet, as they will be released in a future client patch.
