  • Got a "The Shattered Blade of Levinthal" through game drop. But should be chest only?


    I got a rare, "The Shattered Blade of Levinthal" dropped in a game. Sounds good and all, but it is actually a item that drops in the 'Treasure 27' chest.
    Is this a bug? Or are you saying that some of these Treasure chest items im gathering, especially the mythical ones, will become droppable or are allready droppable and therefore worth a lot less in the future!?

    Right now Treasure items will be worth 0,5-3 keys, since you need a key to open them. But a normal rare is only 0.2 keys for example.Since you can get it for FREE through drops.

    Im just curious, because this will limit my future purchases of keys for chests considerately in the future, since i will have no joy of getting items you could get for free just by playing. Some might not care, but im pretty sure a great deal of people do care about this and will also hold back on key purchases if they become available by drops.

    IIRC aside from immortals, genuine and unusual. Only the items that are attained trough the community chests (ie: malignant amanita, divine shaper) should not become droppable.
    I could be wrong tough.

      you mean the chests that aren't linked to a hero? Well chest 27 is such a chest, i think its the dark implements. So nope.

        almost everything becomes droppable, given a long enough time scale

          well a key is worth 6-7 rares. But they want us to use a key for 1 rare+ ? I only did that because i thought those items were limited, since the treasures would later drop a lot less. If thats not the case, then i have no reason to use the keys on treasures.

            does valve add old items to drop, when they realse new items ?

              All items are eligible for dropping. Arcana was dropping the first day it was released. Items from chests also drop during games.
