Loot tables discovered, scavenging worthless

Scavenging is, by design and coding, not affecting material chests, at all. Scavenging affects ONLY and EXCLUSIVELY the chances for unnamed mobs to drop better shit. It does not affect ANY material crates, bosses or mission rewards. So, if you want more blues/purples from the random kills you do, equip scavenging.

Whelp, thank gawd I spent all those mats crafting and recrafting Nomads.

I had long since suspected it was meaningless buy had thought it was fixed/altered with the FL update.

I'm gonna go cry now.

Nomad was terrible even if scavenging made you get more yellows. 4 piece = if you get killed you heal and just die again because the other guy has a useful set that does a lot of damage and you are gimping yourself with nomads.

Bah, the idea of Nomads was just to wear two (100% Scavenge) and then four of the gear that's worthwhile.

4 pc sentry with savage gloves and reckless chest is the goal until they fix reckless. You could always get a lot of scavenging as a minor armor stat if you wanted it. The people in charge of gear and rewards in this game are clueless. Here is the new "tank" set coming in 1.2 

Set Bonuses

  • Set Bonus (2):
    +20%
     Armor
  • Set Bonus (3):
    +20% Exotic Damage Resilience
  • Set Bonus (4):
    Talent | Juggernaut
    When you kill an enemy you are healed by 5% of your max health.

- Armor is still capped at 65% dmg mitigation so this just lets you not stack as much which is not worth losing individual gear talents or other set bonuses for.

- Exotic Dmg resilience is not bad but considering this doesn't change the insane amount of dmg that bullets to your face do now from people wearing Sentry/Strikers this is meh

- 4 piece is a complete joke.

Should change that to being healed .5% of damage for each round that hits an enemy. Or .25%.

Something like that.

I'm pretty sure you can get more health on kill as a major attribute on pieces of armor so this doesn't make sense to me at all. The 4 pc should be a huge bonus and this is just not at all. IMO it should give you a flat dmg reduction of 20-30% at 4 pieces to make you an actual tanky character.

you can. i have pieces that have 6% and some that have 5%. i tried rolling higher but got impatient lol

 

i think stacked im getting like 15% total back on kill.

 

and apparently killing a rat,dog,or bird counts as a kill. havent tried it but thats what some people are saying.

The game is still growing.  Perhaps they are planning to either raise the armor cap for PVE, or treat it differently for PVP (like resilience in WoW, if you remember that).  I'm willing to play a little less now that I've done everything while they work things out.  MMO games always have rocky starts.  This one was rocky, and the Falcon Lost debacle has made it much worse.  It will get better, though.

At least you aren't on PC where every third player in the DZ is running a third party hack that makes them the equivalent of fighting a cross between Neo and Zeus.

Oh, I'm on PC (I mean, c'mon, I'm not 12 :) ). I usually run with a solid group of guys but we've been taken down one by one by hackers using rate of fire glitches and shooting thru walls. we've also killed our fair share of those shitheads too.

I'm still having fun with the game even though i haven't picked up better gear in 2 weeks other than the gear set gear.  that being said, i'm sure if someone knew MMOs more than me, i would be able to have a better character.  i don't even know what rerolling is.

Upstairs in the main base next to the advanced gear vendor is a station that lets you "re-roll" (change) one stat on each piece of your gear (not weapons), like in Diablo 3.

If they're running the new hack, you can't kill them at all.  They can set it to auto-teleport the second they take damage--meaning that unless you one-shot them, they just disappear.  It's frustrating as hell.  They can also automate it to teleport to and loot every division tech chest.  So not only am I already bottle-necked by that stupid resource, it's now being harvested in greater quantities by hackers.
