    I think I know 2 people who looted it, despite many farming.

    Ridiculously low looting chance x 2 is still ridiculously low

    The drop rate for it is increased during the event. It does make sense to farm it right now

    Drop rate is doubled, number of enemy players in the sewers is about quadrupled though - so your chances of actually getting to the centre to fight are reduced :D

    I got it after killing molag bal 5 times. I did notice there was maybe only 10-12 people around when he died. I was doing mad deeps. So maybe that has something to do with it

    I got out of zerg infested IC during the event. I was making more T-stones before the event. Way too many people to get good drops of anything right now.

    I gave up after 2 days, got the Scamp.

    The skin doesn't look that great imo and I'd rather not waste hours and potentially days farming it only for it not to drop.

    Plus finding a group that can hold the middle indefinitely is not easy, they all get wiped after about 2 hours tops.

    There's a saying about RNG, that 2 * 0 = 0. I didn't get it last event, and I haven't had any luck this event, but the center event is actually pretty decent Tel Var if you can consistently get credit for boss kills, and the extra key fragments are nice, too. So even if I don't get the skin, I've at least got a ton of Tel Var/alchemy mats/key fragments to work with. Still worth.

    Now if they added an incentive for players to go into the Arena District arena so I could get that achievement... I have literally *a* kill, and I'm pretty sure that was just my friend and me killing each other for luls.

    Just to be clear, we never promised that the performance in Cyrodiil would be fixed with today's patch. What we did say was that we were continually working to improve performance by adding little things in at a time, which includes some items in today's patch. There's no magic bullet to fix all performance-related issues, though.

    I got the scamp on the first try and the skin 6 tries later doing it as a tank and there were like 20 of us blue at molag bal and yet i somehow got loot. ( loot cap of 12 determited by dps )

    Well i guess it's to make up the wasted time when imperial city was released and the sewers were chaos, especially the middle.

    Soul-Shriven skin is different from the Mind-Shriven skin, which is the one you get on the CS. So if you're a completionist, rip.

    My bad, thanks for correcting me. And no, i am not a completionist so i am fine with the mind shriven skin. Just googled the soul shriven skin and it looks like the mind shriven skin but without the blue veins and glow...not worth for me spending countless hours in IC.
    Anyone else, good luck :smile:
