    I started playing around with the atavist encounters again recently, and while the luminous ones have been a bit shy, I've gone through at least five of them with no recipe drop. Has anyone else gotten a recipe drop in R56, or is it just me?

    Try North Grunvald Barrens near the default entrance.

    I think the real question is: can you get it twice? I have a feeling this was patched into being a "once per character" thing limited by a quest flag, and only a reroll or quest reset can let you get another to drop. When they were new last month, I got quite a few extras.

    No, there's no quest flag involved and you can get several if you're willing to spend and evening running Atavist encounters and getting the Luminous one to show up. If you're not getting a recipe, blame the RNG gods.

    Atavist robes are part of the Mystical Family Items (tm) by Portalium.

    Mystical Family items are so rare, so unheard of, that technically they are not even made on the game. But due high density of....."earger" players and hype, there are mass delusion that they indeed are in the game and available if you just grind 1/4 of your life. Some player even state to have them or they have seen them "multiple" times. But these are only gurgling yell of weakest of us all that delusion level highly disturb the objective reality.

    Yes, I know that, I got quite a few last month. But I have gotten ZERO so far recently from at least six Luminous Atavists, which is why I am asking if something was changed and I should stop trying.

    Thank you, that basically confirms just bad luck. Well, bad luck for me, and really good luck for you, since there is a chance a Luminous won't even appear. For what it's worth, I'm trying in the area around Desolis, in case you were in some other area that I don't know about.

    I was farming them in the tier 4 zone near Desolis. He is near one of the entrances and he respawns quickly after killing him. I must of killed him 70 or 80 times when I got my 10. It was weird I got three to drop in a row then it slowed down.

    Wait, you weren't fighting him in an encounter? They appear somewhere other than the Traveler encounters?
    So I'm back to somehow the Desert Encounter version hasn't been dropping recipes for me. But they can be found elsewhere.

    I believe it is North Grunvald Barrens. There is a camp close to one of the entrances.

    First Atavist Desert Encounter near Desolis tonight (8/20/18) netted a Recipe from a Luminous.

    Edit: Seems like I get the Chest to spawn LESS than a Recipe. Reagent bag is 100% though which is nice.

    I spent about an hour in NGB yesterday and got two recipes from five or six Lumies. Still not as good of a drop rate as I remember from last month, but I don't really mind as long as it's still possible. Even if they did tweak the drop rate down a bit, I don't have a problem with that.
