Sigh….. the RNG in this game

I just mined about 120 ores in Glenumbra trying to get the 4th lead for oakensoul and still don’t have it

    It took a while to get that lead from Glenumbra for me the first time (not as long as 120+, though), and the second time, it dropped on the second ore I harvested.

    It's going to vary. Widely.
    But that can be said for every lead in the game.
    Heck, RNG is like that in every game that employs it, not just ESO.

      Greetings,

      After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic.

      Thank you for your understanding

      As someone who's grown to detest grinding, I decided on something for this type of lead. Rather than grinding for hours trying to get a lead to drop from mobs/nodes/chests/etc, just do them for a few minutes at a time, in between other more enjoyable activities. I can't count the number of times I've failed to get a lead to drop after 30 minutes to 2 hours of grinding, only for it to drop within the first 2 or 3 tries the next day.

      RNG in this game is painfully stingy. I've never understood why either. It's not like they are giving anything away with higher drop rates. They'd just be making the game more rewarding and more fun with better RNG.
