Heroes of the Storm: Normal Loot Chests Drop Rates Published in China

Heroes of the Storm: Normal Loot Chests Drop Rates Published in China

According to a report by Gameranx, the law is meant to ensure that consumers know exactly what they are paying for.

It is important to note that the Overwatch rarity odds revealed by Blizzard are for Chinese servers only. I do believe that these odds might not be exact, but they seem close enough to make me feel comfortable giving Blizzard more money. This includes Overwatch's Loot Boxes, which can be earned via playing the game or purchased for extra money, and which dole out special cosmetic items like character skins, sprays, emotes, and lines of dialogue on a semi-random basis.

That translates to an 18% chance at an epic item, and a 7.4% chance at a legendary item.

After tossing $40 at Overwatch for 50 loot boxes and a shot at some randomized goodies, there's nearly nothing worse than the dwindling hope as nothing good pops out of the boxes and the number of unopened boxes shrinks faster than your bank account.

An average of 5 slag card card package, you can get an epic quality card. The numbers also don't differentiate between duplicate items or epic/legendary in-game currency drops.

If you want a more precise look at the Loot Box odds for Overwatch, the folks over on the game's subreddit have gone all Good Will Hunting by posting some math sorcery. Today, Blizzard did their due diligence (via Eurogamer). At least one of the items is guaranteed to be Rare or above in each box, but the Epic and Legendary items most people grind for aren't almost as frequent as the Rares.

In the case of Hearthstone, drop rates for card packs are even slower, but the announcement is no surprise, and the information unveiled is probably no stranger to Hearthstone players, especially to those who have already been able to deduce drop rates over the years. According to Blizzard's figures, Heroes of the Storm awards one rare item per Loot Box, one epic item every 4.5 Loot Boxes, and one Legendary item every 17.5 Loot Boxes.

Odds for golden cards were not disclosed.
