I've read some of the posts in regards to this new part of the Champions point system. I've seen some claim up to a 12% increase in "items received" from Refining. This has not been my experience.

I have seen zero improvement, whatsoever. I still hover around getting 1 gold drop, in every 4-500 items refined. Sometimes, it's 1-800-1000 +. But, this has been a nightmare for me, for many years. As a "Grand Master Crafter", you would think I could at least get the AVG, around 1: 200-250, that most see. But that is not the case. What is worse, when it first came out, I was getting ZERO Blue/Purple drops, on almost every Refinement. I might get 1 or 2 in 1000 items refined, but that's it. And this REALLY hurt, in Jewelry. This aspect, seems to have been fixed, at least, mostly. Getting Iridium is insane- but I think this is the case for everyone, for the most part.
[snip] Those Zero gold in 4k refining's? The 1:800-1000? Not a chance. There have been a few sessions, where I actually saw 1:150, (twice, - for approx. 1k items and 1:200, (3x's for approx. 2.4k items total, in all my years of crafting.)
I've had a few refining's, where I'd do say 4000 Platinum or Ancestor Silks, and get ZERO Gold. It was so frustrating, so I brought it to the forums, a few times. I've tried every single suggestion offered, in response. Nothing has helped.
So I began asking for more help from Zos, and telling them what was happening, taking screenshots, and even some video, (these take up memory, which effects gameplay on the Xbox- so it is difficult to keep them there, while waiting), and offered up absolute proof, of what I was experiencing.
When they added Meticulous Disassembly, I had high hopes that those of us who have horrific results with the RNG? Would finally see some relief. None came. FOR MYSELF. And that's all I can post on.
I doubt this post will last long, but I can't just sit silent, and take this kind of.. what FEELS LIKE discrimination, since they refuse to even look at it, because it effects my entire game- and doesn't allow me to progress, test out differing gold equipment, etc. so I can find what works best for myself, and my play style. I have to choose very carefully- and if I make a mistake? Say, choose a bad set to improve, or they change that set, and it's not really viable anymore? I will take me an extremely long time, to get back what is lost.
I don't know what else to do, but to post in forums, seeking help or advice, but none is ever found. What IS found? Attacks. Those doing the attacking? Are NEVER rebuked for doing so- I am.[snip]
I can't post any nicer, as I always do, or clearer, what I'm facing. I can only post the truth- take screenshots of my posts, and hope, that one day, maybe an answer will be actually sought out, by those who created a game, a really love to play-
All I've ever asked for? And I've NEVER asked for ANY "back-payment of materials lost" or anything of that nature?
Was to be treated like everyone else who pays their money, to play a great game.
I guess that's a bridge too far.
