I don't know if anyone else has been having issues with repeat exotic drops, but i have been using xur's three of coins to slaughter the toughest foes the world of destiny has to offer, and reaping the rewards. I personally am satisfied with the drop rate. it doesn't just hand me the exotic engrams, but it doesn't make it impossible to receive them. The only problem i have, is in the past two weeks, i have received 7 exotic chest engrams and 1 primary weapon engram. I was very happy with the weapon, but every single chest engram turned into a crest of alpha lupi. It is very frustrating to work hard for that engram drop, and come to find out, its pretty much worth just an exotic shard. It is also frustrating that i almost never receive any other type of exotic engram. it seems to almost always be a chest engram.
Has anyone else had this issue? I was under the impression that the taken king was going to fix terrible drop rates for items, and make sure you don't get repeats of items, but the opposite is true for my case.
Last 3 helms on my hunter have been Kncklehead radar. All I need anymore is mask of the third man but you would think if it was going to repeat it would be different or maybe another class item... Also my hunter has gotten 2 alpha lupi for Titan in a row and no alpha lupi for hunter lol. And 3 4th horsemen in a row.
