Does vMA drop rings?

So I've been farming vMA for a while and I haven't seen a single ring drop. So I decided to google if I was just having bad luck, or rings just don't drop, and I came across this old thread, where they say that rings indeed do not drop.

What I'd like to know is if anything changed since, and if not whether it's worth a bug report or if it's intended.

    vMA does drop rings on stages 7, 8 and 9. I'm not entirely sure about round 7, but 100% on 8 and 9. Also, vMA leaderboards have a chance to give you gold MA set rings if you manage to get a spot. Such sets are Elemental Succession, Winterborn, Hunt Leader, Para Bellum, Glory and Permafrost I think.

    Thanks. I guess it's back to farming then. It does seem odd though that I have seen at least 6 necklaces drop in the 20-ish runs I did, but not a single ring.

    Here´s how it works at the moment:

    On normal Maelstrom arena:
    - Rings will drop in blue quality from last chest (might have seen some from stage 8 as well)
    - Necklace will drop in blue quality from stage 7 and 8

    On veteran Maelstrom arena:
    - Rings doesn´t drop from any chest from any stage (will stick by this statement until proven the opposite). I´ve 1500+ confirmed checks on chests in vMA and never seen a single ring from the veteran version.

    - Necklace have a chance to drop from stage 7 and 8 in purple quality

    - Rings do however come from weekly leaderboard in gold quality. You can also get a gold necklace from any of the chests.


    Conclusion:
    - Rings can come in blue and gold quality from any of the maelstrom sets
    - Necklace can come in blue, purple and gold quality from any of the maelstrom sets

    Do you have any reason to assume that this is intended? Because if not, I'll make a bug report. There is no way I get onto the leaderboards anytime soon, and running with blue gear sucks.

    I´ve no idea if it´s intended or not. I´ve made 2 or 3 posts about it. Only thing I know is that ZOS changed the loot-table so that weapons from sets like Winterborn, para-bellum etc after I made a thread about it a few months ago.

    I cannot recall on which stage though, definately one of the later ones. Could also be that before you got set weapons, you got set rings at the end. It's been a while though.

    Was this before or after One Tamriel??

    My findings are based upon drops/loot after One Tamriel when ZOS made a major overhaul of dropped sets.

    Did you get that ring after One Tamriel release? Because judging by what I read in other threads and on Reddit, that's when things got screwed up.

    I think it was before, and that would also probably explain things. Most likely, Rings only dropped at the end. Then they add weapons, and somebody forgot to re-add rings to the loot tables for arena 7/8 :smile:

    Weapons were added in Horns of the Reach patch, not during One Tamriel. Something went wrong in 1T

    NECRO WARNING

    I know this is an old thread but was wondering if anyone can confirm that the bug is still there. I wanted to give winterborn a try and noticed I didn't have any ring in stock. Looking at the thread I understand why.
    Don t mind going back to VMA but can I an those rings now? Anyone tried recently?

    Thanks in advance

    The trick is to just get on the leaderboard for the week. It's actually pretty easy; just finish the arena in one sitting on a Dragonknight. Your actual score doesn't matter -- just that you get one. It's been a while since I've run vMA with any regularity, but last I did only like 30 DKs were on the board for most weeks, on PC/NA.

    To address the actual question, though, I can't say for certain that I've seen rings drop from the chests. But I sold anything that wasn't the Maelstrom weapon drops or pre-golded items from the mail, so my memory on the chest drops is lacking.

    Since this ancient thread of mine was necroed, let me post the final update:

    The rings were added back to the loot table in Summerset. It is in the patch notes. And yes, I can confirm as I did get the purple Hunt Leader rings for my NB tank.
