Archive drop rate

So I've noticed after many many runs that the drop rate for anything "special" is really really low. Even the library side quest fetch items almost never show up. I understand they want us to keep playing it over and over amd over again, but I think the drop rates of these should be increased a percent or 5. What do you guys think

    What do you count as special things? Furnishings for example I seem to have coming out of my ears, especially the books

    Greetings,

    After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic, as it's asking the community.

    Thank you for your understanding

    from my experience the drop rate of everything in there is incredibly high

    furnishings, leads, and to an extent the blueprints as well

    I agree the drop rate for certain things is pretty bad. I've yet to see the ichor drop from anything but the daily. I've only gotten 5 of the spoils, and 3 of the map ones.

    Lots of recipes, and I'm on the second round of all the leads, those I get but I'd really like the skeever pet and that's not happening.

    the ichor is by far the rarest of the 4 collectible drops (ive only gotten a handful, maybe < 5, as natural drops and ive gotten like 52 ichor in total)

    the other 3 collectibles drop too often, and its really noticeable after you finish the collectibles as they keep dropping anyway

    i actually have almost a full extra collectibles worth of skeever parts, and over a dozen of each archive map, that i cant trade or sell because they are bound and have 0 value to npcs

    I play about an hour a day (sometimes 2, but rarely) that's all the time I have for IA. I've played most days since it dropped on the console and 5/25 isn't a high drop rate in my opinion. That's what less than one a week? That would mean for me to get the pet it will take another 20 weeks, 6 months of daily play for one collectible is a pretty poor drop rate.

    But the ichor always drops from the daily — I am closer to completing that achievement than the others, actually. I assumed these were things to be collected over time and not just a few runs.

    yeah the ichor is the most guaranteed

    all of these collectibles also show up on the rotation vendor (i actually bought about 1/3 of the ichor i needed to finish the achievement because it helped finish it faster, same went for the skeever pet i finished that by week 2 of the archive release lol)

    if i could i would sell or give away all of the extra collectible parts i have, since they have been continuously stacking up since i finished all of those collectibles lol
