Unstable core question

Since the 'scouts' have apparently been removed from the game, will cores be possible to win from the raid fleets?

    No, if you would actually read the forum posts you would see what Kixeye has offered for Burning Seas.  Can't believe some people these days.

    My understanding of this post was: Are the reaver fleets going to drop the unstable core BP as the scouts did?

    What's the chances the unstable cores will be dropping from the raid targets?

    ([Damage] * (1 + [Damage Bonus])) / ([Reload] / (1 + [Reload bonus]) + 0.1 * ([Salvo] - 1)) = [DPS]
    Not factoring in splash or spread.
    (3200 * (1 + 0)) / (4 / (1 + 0) + 0.1 * (6 - 1)) = 711
    (3200 * (1 + -0.65)) / (4 / (1 + 2) + 0.1 * (6 - 1)) = 611

    Unfortunately, no. The Reaver fleets in the raid will not drop Unstable Core blueprints.

    I think it is a legit question, but I would think they probably wont, but the fleets that do will probably show up again after the raid.

    I assumed no but figured I'd ask.


    And this is hardly in the league of dumb questions asked on these forums.

    The drop rate when they appeared before was very high, I got all 3 cores within a day or so.  I continued hitting them for fun and practice, they did not drop any other bp's, just the 3 cores

    I fought a few. They definitely existed.

    I'm starting to understand Magic Bunny's perspective...

    It seems a very legitimate question, especially if the reaver test fleets are gone, they're not in raid prizes, and they're unlikely to be in forsaken missions...

    ... guess we're lucky if we picked them up.

    And bp's have dropped like flies from past raid targets - actually begs the question why the only reaver bp isn't going to drop from fleets, other than with only the one, it would be a guaranteed and thereby pretty mundane win, I guess.

    Quite obvious you're a noob, as when have bp's ever dropped from raid fleets? The only exception was from the hubs during a test run in a couple of the events.

    BPs always did drop from raid targets, but once you collected the lower tiers few people ever hit high enough targets in raids to see BPs drop. You would need to hit level 40 and above raid targets to ever see a tier 3 BP drop. And most people capable of that already have all their BPs

    yeah, blueprints used to drop like crazy from raids, during BI5 (I think it was, raid I won Interdictor in anyways), I got over 40 blueprints during that raid because I was autoing raid targets with 5 different fleets,
