View Full Version : Legendary Rarity?!

While opening packs from the first two sets, it seemed like cards at legendary rarity were approximately equivalent in distribution to Mythics in MTG (I believe it is ~ 1:8 mythic:rare distribution there).

I have now played 7 gauntlets, which contained 42 packs of Armies of Myth, and one draft, which contained 3 packs. So, in total, I have opened 45 normal packs of Armies of Myth and have not yet opened a single legendary from this set. This is just insane to me, and I am beginning to wonder if something is wrong with my account. Is legendary distribution in this game really this bad?

I had a lower legendary rage too but two small samples does not make a trend. Rng is a fickle deity.

I've opened around 25 packs and received 4 Legendaries so far, so they do drop. I'm on a lucky streak at the moment. :)

I opened 29 packs earlier, and 3 in a draft. I think Im at 4 legendaries now too (none of them are money legends :( )

I've played one draft and one gauntlet so far and am at 33% legendary rate. Thus has happened to me with the launch of all three sets for some reason. Then I don't see one in limited for forever.

An 11% chance across 45 rolls yields a

0.89 ^ 45 = 0.00527898...

0.5% chance of not seeing one. A 1 in 200 occurrence.

Ah, thanks for doing the math, I was hoping that someone would know how to do it. Well, it's not very likely, but it could be worse.

They do seem rarer then before, after 10 drafts iv only opened 1, and iv only seen an opponent with one once.(and i am making it to the 3rd round >50% of then time)

I my self was wondering if they changed the drop rate. Due to the small sample size i simply figured i was just unlucky

In other words, for every 10,000 players who open 45 packs, 50 of them will get zero legendaries. That is definitely a non-zero number of the playerbase. Then again, there's some bastard out there who got 20+ legendaries from those same 45 packs. Go yell at him. ;)

4 legendaries off 23 packs

Phenteo rubbed 5 of the packs before I opened them tho (2 legendaries from them)

Well doN,t want to hurt anyones feeling here

1st draft: Calamity
1st Gautlet: Indigo Dreamwalker
2nd gautlet: Augur of Sirion, Hearth of wrathwood, Lanupaw prophate of fate.

So not too many problems with that.. What i do have problems is consistant gautlet.. i seem to either not know how to build decks or no defining colors to run them ( my second gautlet i tried many different combinations to use my nice legendary but adding the 3rd color is hard whit duel shards being rare. )

I got 3 legendaries in a single sealed pool, you're just unlucky I'm thinking... or I'm really lucky, either way.

3 drafts (9 packs) since set 3. I have found 3 legendaries.

Which making a great spider deck and then open a Phento pack 3. That was one of the most fun drafts I've had. One match got 40+ eggs into an opponents deck before winning.

It's RNG. I've received 9 out of 48.

I remember going through a long streak a few months ago getting no legendaries from 2-2-1 drafts... Just bad luck.
