I’ve been tracking stats on Glyph Mining, and I have noticed a disconcerting difference between activating the Epic Mine from the Rare Mine, and activating the Epic Mine from 200 Crystals.
When activating from the 200 Rare Mine attempts, I had 37 Epic Mine activations.
These 37 Epic activations produced 1 XP Glyph, 4 Glyph Essence, and 14 Legendary Mine activations (I did not track the type of common, rare, or epic glyphs produced, but they produced zero Legendary Glyphs and plenty of commons).
The subsequent 14 Legendary Mine activations produced 7 Glyph Essence, 4 Common Glyphs, 3 Rare Glyphs, 7 Epic Glyphs, and 0 Legendary Glyphs.
When activating from 20000 crystals, I had 100 Epic Mine activations.
These 100 Epic Mine Activations produced zero Common Glyphs (yes, zero), 10 Rare (non-xp) Glyphs, 33 XP Glyphs, 46 Epic Glyphs, 1 Legendary Glyph, 74 Glyph Essence, and 40 Legendary Mine Activations.
The subsequent 40 Legendary Mine Activations produced zero Common Glyphs, zero Rare (non-xp) Glyphs, 19 XP Glyphs, 14 Epic Glyphs, 7 Legendary Glyphs, and 10 Glyph Essence.
Something is weird here. The number of commons and rares from epic and legendary are dramatically lower when activating with crystals. Meanwhile, the essence from crystal epic activations is much higher than any other type of activation.
