Not a single Crimson has fallen for me. I am staying though because I need to boss materials (muculent,blight etc). I am hoping for a Cinture, but I am not holding my breath.

I have received one, a guildie received one, and two peeps in an allied guild have also received one. They may not drop for YOU, but they have certainly dropped for others.

okay..i have been able to determine unfortunately that some people dont know what crimson is lol..i ask at melissa spawn who had gotten crimsons..i got 4 ppl who said they had ..1 person showed me a crimson the others said they were wearing them but i couldnt see it because was under their robes..hmmmm. had them show me and of course they were wearing the crimson doublet that drops on corpse.The person who did have one is very trustworthy so crimsons are dropping from her but i have a feeling the drop rate is way less than ppl say due to the miss identifications lol...i have 7 crimson in my bank box but the look like a doublet roflmao.

I own 9 Crimson Cinctures. I know EXACTLY what they look like, and so do my guild/alliance mates. These are Crimmy's, not the doublets. Make no mistake about that. Oh, and we are up to 5 now in the alliance. So, I think they drop QUITE a bit more than you happen to think. Considering she spawns four times an hour, and 23.5 hours a day, I think you'll find your chances for a crimmy better here than anywhere else.

I dont doubt they drop at a good rate..so i just did an experment..i sat through 8 spawns....and ask after everyone if anyone got a crimmy. In 8 spawns i got 9 ppl saying they got one, 8 of them were doublets and 1 was a crimmy. I had to explain the difference between the 2 until my char passed out. Believe it or not alot of ppl dont know what a crimson is if they dont do peerless stuff. I dont doubt ppl are getting them some are being miss identified( there was a guy a bank trying to sell doublets as crimmies for14 mill)

Hmm....I may have to make sure I loot the corpse after it goes public then...I wonder if that means people just leave Cinctures there!

I have killed around 50 of them myself now and I have gotten 2 hunters garb chest pieces 4 necklaces a few minor artifacts and a bunch of ingredients.

The cincture probably drops however the rate it drops is going to be incredibly low due to how easy melissa is to kill and how often she spawns. It took me around 500+ peerless to get one crimson cincture so don't expect it to be handed to you easily during this little event.

I didn't know what a crimson was. I've killed Melissa about 5 times now. I've gotten 3 pearl necklaces, 12 corruption, 2 taint, and I got a Crimson Cincture on the 4th kill!

It was by luck of course. I was browsing her corpse, and was bored and scrolling over everything in it. I saw this red apron, and said "I haven't seen that before." So I scrolled over it and it was a crimson! Woot!

I was very happy considering my character has no luck whatsoever. hehe

Will you please stop saying this
As jfk has said, just because you haven't got one, doesn't mean they don't drop.
People sometimes spend months in doom without a single artifact, and yet some people get one on their first day.
It's luck of the draw.

I agree with Adam, my wife and I both got a crimson on two back to back Melisandes. The rng is picky and will give what it gives when it gives. I have a friend who has gotten three crimsons off of Melissa since this has started and he is there on a regular basis.

And, as Adam pointed out, the other end of the spectrum is unforgiving. I have been to Doom countless times now, and done Melissa about 40 times so far, and have not gotten a single artifact drop. I keep going, though, on the off-chance the fates will shine on me, even if by accident. Not mad about it, just pointing out the system. I do, however, wish at least ONE of my guildies would get one... lol=)

Unfortunately, most of them didn't "drop" for me, lol, I had to buy and/or trade for them. I admit that it was overkill, but I hate having to share armor/weaps/arties between characters. I like to log in on whatever char and be ready to go, so I pretty much outfit them individually. Currently, I have to share one ring between two dexxers, and I will quit doing that when I can find something close to it, which will probably be close to impossible.:(
