    37 haunches here so far, no heads. 1 in 6 chance to get a haunch seems about what I have seen.

    Got 1 green head from ~ 50 wyverns :)
    But I got no new cowbell (lots of reapers) nor a Temna hood (40? or so Temnas) - so my luck has been limited

    I currently have 36 haunches and I've collected over 10,000 scales.

    I saw Atos login around 5 am central and told him that I thought wyvern heads were too rare. He said that he made them 5x more common for R72 but that still might not be enough.

    When you are told "your chances are improved"...what that means is....your chance has increased from "no chance in hell" to "when hell freezes over"......hope this helps you to understand developer speak.

    I'm doing my best to NOT count how many reapers or wyverns I've killed in the past ~2 weeks because then I'd realize that RNGesus hates me.

    I'll keep plugging on for another week or two on the off chance I'll get a wyvern head but only because I've already burnt the 3.5M crafting xp I gained in Ulfheim the past 2 weeks last Saturday.

    That's why I'm an Ice Druid in ESO. I knew I should have done that in SOTA.

    Just doing my part to help hell freeze over ;-)

    I think that instead of making wyvern heads 5x more common, @Chris made wyvern carcasses 5x more rare.

    To be completely honest, I don’t think the entire drop rate for rare animal parts is ever looked at closely and verified. Just my guess.

    Hmm...

    Sounds like the title of an 80s pulp fantasy book

    My husband and I have been trying since they supposedly were put in game. Big Fat Zero so far. The drop rate for haunches is awful as well. We have done both Barbarian random encounters as well as Ulfheim.
