    Tarnished Crest of Rohan drop rates

    I know this may just be the way my luck is running, but I conducted a test recently. I normally grab every single node I see either to use the resources or to sell them. I had been adventuring in Wildermore with two toons for several months. But I noticed very few Tarnished Crests of Rohan dropping compared to my best memory of drops in Rohan.

    So for the last two weeks, I have continued my normal grabbing of nodes in Wildermore, and in that time, got over 900 resources (Oak and Riddermark Ore) but got only one Tarnished Crest. Each week I sent one of my toons into Rohan on a farming run, and both times with less than 200 resources gathered, I got three Tarnished Crests the first time, and four during the second run.

    So not sure if theres a discrepancy in drop rates, or my luck was just acting up. Anyone else notice a lack of Tarnished Crests dropping in Wildermore?

    I don't 'farm' nodes, but I will collect any node that pops up on radar as I'm out questing.

    Sometimes I can get 3 or 4 per day, sometimes 3 or 4 per week, but I never seem to be short of them.
    I generally find that the drop rate is about 1 crest per stack of mats on average.

    For me, I've actually noticed more Tarnished Crests in Wildermore than in Rohan. Currently have 49 of them in my vault, plus the countless ones I used in crafting.

    I hope the drop rate increases for you!

    I think it's just bad luck for you. My guard has managed to max out his rep in the woodworkers guild without finding a single crest, but my hunter trips over one ore node and crests pop out of her bum.

    Yeah, it's just bad luck. I gave a friend a dozen crests recently, zeroing out my vault. Over the next 2 weeks I collected 25 more. I don't even go out of my way to get the nodes. It's just from doing Wildermore warbands, the 7 that I can solo. I run a loop between them once a day for warband tokens. I have two toons I do that with, a hunter and an RK. I'm averaging about 1.5 crests per day. Warband tokens, on the other hand, drop at about 0.2 per day for me.

    Well if it's bad luck, my trend continues. It is still about one crest in 8 stacks of ore in Wildermore for a tarnished crest, yet as little as on tarnished crest in a half stack in Rohan. So I guess I'll just send my hunter into Rohan once a week and get 3-4 tarnished crests in an hour and just stop farming nodes in Wildermore period.
