Hi everyone! I have been wondering about this for a bit and also read the wiki, but couldn't find the answer, so, decided to ask here.
What I noticed is that favor often isn't at all "favorable". Sometimes it is VERY favorable, but sometimes I notice even a decrease in "quality" which restores after the "favor" is over. 😅 It is particularly noticeable with opening chests, because I play with heroes, and it's not possible to see if their rate of gold drops has increased.
I get that this is random as well and also depends on the instance. Sometimes the instance is pretty much "unlucky". This is where I would appreciate some clarification.
I don't use TextMod. But I noticed when doing bounties with others, that some who do use it have all the chests unlocked with drops near them.
So my question is, does it mean that just like with unidentified items where the mods are already there, we just use the kit to reveal them, the same way with chests, with every instance the items are randomally assigned to each chest, and we just use the lucky/unlucky roll with the lockpicks to open the chest? Or is there a true random element when we open the chest, and it's not only decides if the locpick will break or not, but also randomally chooses the item with each opening of the chest?
What I would like to know is if the favor begins when you are already in any particular area, doing chest runs or vanquishing, would it be beneficial to exit the area and enter again, or it doesn't matter and drop rate of rare items should increase regardless? Thanks! 😊🌺
