Metallic Mantis drop rate (as of patch 18.8.29)


#1

As of patch 18.8.29, mantises in Smugglers Den drop their unique loot again. Thanks funcom for fixing this :heart: :blush:

To get an idea of the drop rate I went on a bit of a killing spree (for science). I’ve killed 200 mantises, which is roughly 2 rounds of all the mid-level mantises in Smugglers Den. The following items dropped for me:
