Anthem’s very bad loot drops are getting addressed in major update

  • BioWare is already adjusting Anthem loot based on player feedback

"Many inscriptions are not useful to the item they are attached to", Ben Irving, the game's lead producer, wrote on the Anthem subreddit last night.

Inscriptions only apply to the item they are on.

The developer is also changing how inscriptions roll on items in the first place. It looks like BioWare is eager to address this feedback, as Anthem's next patch will make a few promising changes to loot drops and item inscriptions.

An incoming ANTHEM patch is set to make meaningful adjustments to the game's frankly bad loot system.

To start, BioWare is taking out common, and uncommon drops from the loot pool for players at level 30. The number of masterwork embers required for crafting is also being reduced from 25 to 15, giving players quicker access to high-tier gear in end-game. Rather than boost the drop rates for masterwork and legendary items as some have requested, the studio has decided to make the stat rolls (inscriptions) on individual drops better so players don't feel the need to keep grinding for additional ones. If it doesn't (suit icon), then its benefit will apply to the entire Javelin.

Even when the stat bonuses aren't item-specific, there can still be problems. Otherwise, the inscription will be beneficial to the Javelin as a whole. With four possible inscriptions slots, a new AR will randomly pick from four pools of the different inscription types.

The tethering system keeps you from wandering too far away from your team and focused on completing the selected mission at hand. After Anthem launched, players complained the system wasn't forgiving enough and didn't provide an adequate amount of time for anyone to catch up to their teammates before being subjected to a loading screen-which also occasionally caused them to lose out on crucial in-game dialogue or cutscenes.
