greater rift keystone

    Elusive or bad luck?

    If you’ve been diligently completing Nephalem Rifts in order to get yourself a Greater Rift Keystone but are not having any joy you are not alone. Rollyy posted his woeful experiences on the official forums and got some blue words of comfort.

    It sounds like you’re doing everything the right way, but have had a streak of bad luck. Rift Guardians have a chance to drop a Greater Rift Fragment, which is a physical item that will need to find a home in your inventory. So, if you don’t have at least 1 free inventory square when it drops then you might accidentally leave it behind. They’re kind of easy to miss in the midst of all the loot dropped by the Rift Guardian, too.

    With all of that said I still want to point out that there are changes and fine tuning still in store for DiabloWikipatch 2.1. We’re keeping a close eye on things that are happening on the PTR, and we’ll make adjustments as needed when things fall outside of design intent. So, for example, if Greater Rift Fragments are dropping less frequently than we’d like, then you can bet that we’ll tweak the numbers until they are. Your feedback helps us with this process, so it’s very much appreciated!

    This is something that first came to my attention from clanmate, Kyndig, whose rift tally was up in the teens but still with no GRK reward. I was on 3 keys for 3 rifts at that point so thought it was just bad luck. Very bad luck. Other clanmates then reported similar low drop rates, then my own rate nosedived and I’m up to about 15 rifts without a GRK in my rewards. There’s a thread in the community forum logging drop rates of Greater Rift Keystones, if you’ve had a similar experience or conversely they’re dropping like they’re going out of fashion share your own stats. But not gloating now.
