Nerkos Helm

So, I was wondering about it, and looked at the twitter feed.

 

Since update 10(sept. 13th), pretty much every alt helm in the game has been on alert 4 times.

 

In that time, the nekros "raknis" helm has been on alert exactly once, on October 5th, at 7:47 pm EST.

 

Considering it has absolutely no stat value whatsoever, you'd think it'd be slightly less "rare" than, y'know, every other helmet in the game.

 

It's actually the most-rare thing on the list, so far as I can discern.

 

Can we get that upped, or is it staying off alert?

Maybe, but there's been exactly 100 helmet alerts since u10, so that gives it exactly a 1% chance. It's entirely possible it's the RNG, but all others are showing up roughly 1/28th (3.5%) of the time(which makes sense, as there's 28 helmets).

Actually, part of the idea of the alerts giving market items like helms is that they can affect the game since they have stat changes.  DE's philosophy in making the game truly free to play is that game effecting items can be obtained without spending platinum.  Since this is a purely cosmetic helm, it would be more likely expected to use plat for it.

 

1% vs the other helms 3-4% does make sense from this standpoint.

I'd almost agree with you, but dagger axe skins. They don't do anything, but they're actually a very common alert.

 

In fact, dagger axe skin is so very common that, since U10, they've been up on alert 12 times, DESPITE being purely cosmetic.
