i've been playing a lot with characters on Daggerfall Covenant and Ebonheart Pact, but since i already got all motifs for both alliances styles on cyrodiil chests, i decided to create a new character for Aldmeri Dominion. after i reached level 10, i bought dozens of treasure maps and went to cyrodiil. on the other alliances, i always got 1 motif after 2 or 3 chests, in the worst case scenario after 4 or 5 tries, but that was rare. anyway, in 10 chest i would always get, for sure, 2 motifs. now, playing on AD, after dozens and dozens of chests, i never got one single moif - i can guarantee that i did that a lot both on DC and EP and this bad luck was impossible.
probably i'm going to delete this character and this was my first and last try at AD, it would have been cheaper to buy all motifs, i spent more than 60.000 gold on treasure maps and i didn't get one single motif. i was both shocked and surprised, to find out after more than 2 years playing this, that the item drop on AD alliance is not balanced in the same way of DC and EP. that's just wrong
good thing i started on EP.
