    I don't think there should be a limitation on what a drifter can interact with or what they can loot. Not only because this feels kinda dumb but also because it isn't necessary. If one manages to grab an item from a legendary then thats your fault for a: not being faster then them. b: not killing them before opening/looting the chest. c using drifter yourself.

    I do however agree to have the skull only be lootable by the person who got the kill. So a drifter or any other person can't steal anything from those items unless they destroy the skull. Then the above applies. Having this "handycap" only for one set not only would be unfair towards everyone using it but also to people who unlocked the shard and selling sets to others and making stars with this.

    Springs are good for the idea of a drifter. Its get in loot something grab the most valuable and go. So being able to reach an advantage point or chests on trees is perfectly fine in my opinion. If you have a problem with someone running away try the following: a using a bow to kill/know them down again. b: epearls are/will be a thing c: get other means of quick terrain traversing.

    Drifter is great for solos or people without a ikit. It is basically impossible to survive in the warzone without a kit and drifter gives you the ability to run faster get chests others can not and keep your most valuable possession. having only a 50/50 chance would ruin the possibility for people without the means to generate a new set to go into the warzone successfully.

    I don't think drifter needs a nerf. I were using drifter found 2 legendary chests and where killed even before i could think about trying to loot anything. I agree that people looting heads can be annoying and i propose my idea above to deal with this problem. I am entirely opposed to the idea to have a 50/50 chance to keep the kit. (maybe a 50/50 chance to drop the item you are holding but not the entire armor set but even that isn't necessary in my opinion)

    Thank you for reading. Have a great day.
    i do not agree with 50/50 chance to drop the item because drifter is also used for grinding in wz because there are more recourses so if you brought a realy good pic and u lose it then drifter shouldnt be there at all. Its not like you keep your whole invintory just what you are holding.

    I think i made clear that i don't support that idea and and the 50/50 item drop would only the furthest i would go with this as many people have a problem with them.

    Ok hear me out. Drifter does not need a nerf.
    Drifter has been nerfed to the point where if you have diamond equivalent armour you will beat a drifter in a 1v1. Yes i know there's a problem with ganking in drifter sets but that's not a problem with drifter sets that's just a feature of a warzone with clans.

    The only problem I hear you guys talking about is how drifter can loot heads and legendary chests and be able to take an item to spawn safely. This issue should not be fixed by nerfing drifter beyond usability in the warzone. Instead, I suggest a couple changes to warzone itself:

    1) Making heads only lootable by the person who killed them for 5 seconds and giving the person 5 seconds of invincibility at the same time. This would end up making duelist set the most powerful set in the warzone but it already is so there really isn't any changes here.

    2) A completely brand new idea, When a legendary chest has been clicked down to 0 health all players within a 10 block radius get teleported to a duel arena where if you die you get sent back(with all u have in your inventory) to the place you were before the teleporting, with a 5 second invincibility. The player who manages to be the last man standing in the arena will be able to loot the legendary chest that only they can access and then gets teleported back to warzone spawn.

    This second idea would leave drifter's out...
    One of the ways this could be inclusive is if only in that duel arena drifter sets have diamond stat and deal 100% damage(this would need bug testing on bug testing to ensure this isn't able to be taken back into normal wz). You may think this being op, but people who brought their gsets also likely brought their massive amount of healing and spells, which the drifters probably didn't, which would give drifters a fighting chance and the gsets their regular chance. Also to make the whole arena more fair make it a free for all and that no armour sets work in this arena.


    The only problem I can really see with the second idea is people using knockback spells just before the legendary chest is clicked down... So I really need some more thinking and suggestions from you guys.

    In my opinion drifters are nerfed as is. The set makes you deal 50% less damage. People that arent in big clans need to have a fair chance aswell.
    Theres no way for people without a big clan and allies to loot legendary chests. This is very unfair. Thats why drifter set comes in handy. I do think that something needs to be a little changed. But not the looting of any kind.

    I have to join in on the 2nd idea. People who have big clans will be up to 10 people in that arena. That will make it even harder for drifters to even do anything. And it will make the big clans unstoppable. I like the idea, but I dont think it will work out

    3 good ways to balance them,

    1) Add a max use limit per set, like 3 times or smth, that when u die in wz the drifter armor only works 3 times and on the 4th time you lose it same as all other sets

    2) Add a 50% chance to safe the item in the hand, so everyone still have a chance to get good loot not only the big pvp clans

    3) Add a cooldown in general on heads so only the killer can open the head the first 20sec
    1. This would rob people without the kit from the benefit of keeping it the entire season after they got it once. And the kit is not that op that it can be used in pvp anyways.

    2. The big clans can just camp and kill anyone so having a 100% chance gives the non pvps or non clan members a way to get items too. Your argument is countering itself here.

    3. Why wouldn't you just make it only the killer can open a head? You can still destroy the head to get the loot if you are not the killer anyways.

    Big clans will always rule the warzone and thats just the way it is. I do not think drifter is the decisive factor here. In my opinion we can be glad that drifter is there (in the state as it is now) for the people who sometimes want to go into the warzone on their own to draw a few chests. This would be completely impossible without the set or even if its getting some major nerfs in the future.
