    @VonZant all things being equal. I meant ultimate quality, not starting quality. So yes the event gives you 5 dot at specific colors. But a blue 5 dot has the same chance to have a speed secondary no matter how you got it, and the same chance to roll a given stat no matter how you got it.

    Also they're health mods so automatically meh. ;)

    With that said they're nice rewards. I just haven't had much luck with it.

    Yeah agreed. I was just suprised to learn they were different quality. It also sucks to learn that it appears there is just a 33% chance for each mod to roll as a 5 dot in challenges. I sure didnt know that before.

    I don't think that's right. I've tracked exactly zero data on this front, but I do 3x refresh daily and I feel like I get more 5 dot than 4 dot, fairly consistently.

    Not to mention when mods really were brutal - when the mod drop rate was not 100%.

    Now prove it! ;)

    I absolutely get more 5 dots than anything else, but they are grey and usually circles, diamonds, then rectangles.

    Someone once tracked mod drops with community input and the left side mods were way more common.

    Maybe its just lucky rolls but out of 12 mods from the Smuggler Event today, I got 5 showing speed secondaries and a speed arrow. I havent rolled up the blues and purples yet so may be more. That the 3rd or 4th time in a row its been similar results.

    Edit: 2 more rolled speed. So 7 secondaries + 1 speed arrow out of 12 mods. Curious if other people see similar results.

    I get speed secondaries very, very rarely and when I upgrade and slice them, speed never goes up. Also the speed secondaries I get are mostly +3.

    Try the smuggler event today and let us know what you get. ;)

    A mess of 5 dot mods at various colors that have the same chance to roll speed as any other source :p

    There was definitely a period after I started playing again when I would keep literally any triangle mod because I just couldn't get enough triangles.

    I've mostly gotten past it, though I'm still using a handful of CD triangles with no speed because getting a mod with both a CD primary and speed secondary seems to be basically Holy Grail status.

    And yet you still show no proof! They are god mods I tell you! God mods! ;)

    Anyway when I started I used to spend all weekend cantina energy on Mods and refreshed as much as I could. Ive gotten away from that but am going to start again.

    That blows. Sorry. Did you do the top tier?
  • I have a single set (5 characters) of good mods that mostly came from the mod shop and enough 8-15 speed mods to finish the rest of my 2m gp roster that i gained mostly from upgrading literally every mod after the rework, my good set being 18-21 speed. I would say your best bet is to always keep an eye on the shop and always make sure you're spending the mod energy and they'll eventually come.

    Wont help here. Better off sacrificing chickens to the RNG gods. Worst case you have tasty roast chicken for dinner! :D

    Same. I mean, a couple did start with speed, and one rolled once, but I don't really need any +10 at this point.

    More fodder for the RNG-beast. Feed him enough mods and one day he's sure to lay a little golden god mod. :D

    I've def had some grays and greens that ended up with great speed scores from slicing, but it sure is a relief when you get a gold from an event that just gets there all on its own by leveling. Farming enough mats to slice one mod from gray to gold probably only takes a few days, but it feels like about 17 years.
