As a reminder, Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine will be moving to a new location on Thursdays at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET.

This is temporary. It will appear again later!
This is a temporary solution to address players occasionally creating additional unintended shield stacks with certain character skills. We’re currently investigating a long-term solution, at which point the values will be restored.
Last week, we lowered the world drop rate for loot while players were in Mayhem levels. By and large, the community has responded well to this change! We did see many members of the community express concerns about the drop rate on gear like Class Mods and Artifacts being harder to find. This makes sense and we totally understand and agree that the overall opportunity to get this gear should be a bit higher. We still want to make sure that Legendary gear is special, but that the time investment feels rewarding. We are continuing to monitor and will make fine tuning adjustments in the future.
We’re also working out a plan to move World Drop gear to dedicated sources in the Guns, Love, and Tentacles add-on.
