First I just want to say I've been playing WoW for over a decade and I've never taken the time to join a website to make a comment until now. That said...
After farming Vixx for
because I want his toys, specifically his - I have this recommendation for those considering doing it: don't.
Let me explain what you're getting yourself into ... First off, the information you'll find elsewhere considering Vixx is erroneous. There's a rumor he spawns on Mythic, perhaps someone has actually witnessed this, perhaps it
in the coding of the game that he potentially
spawn in Mythic, but I will tell you I've run Mythic 300+ times to check and spoken to others who ran it endlessly too. Results: He didn't spawn 1 time on Mythic for any of us. To clarify, you can party with someone and run into a Mythic, kill the first boss, exit the dungeon and reset the instance and try again. It's possible he used to spawn on Mythic and Blizzard changed it. I even opened a ticket and spoke to a GM about this rumor, and apparently
say he spawns on Mythic. After prying further I found out the GM was just getting his information off this website and regurgitating it to me. So as it stands, Vixx spawning on Mythic is either a rumor or such a low percentage that it's very tough to make it happen by running Mythics over and over.
Furthermore, you have to realize Vixx's Heroic spawn rate is very low. About 7%. Which is about 1 spawn per 14 runs. Then, his toy drop rate is actually low. I know people online have been saying it's high - but it isn't. Maybe it used to be, but I think Blizzard realized a lot of people are farming these toys and they lowered the drop rate. Which was smart of them to do because I've been re-subbing each month just to log in, farm it, and log off. They are a business and they do analyze things to maximize their revenue, so I wouldn't be surprised if Vixx was altered. In fact, I know his code was touched because if you have noticed lately he is showing up with a Gold dragon portrait, and was previously always a Silver dragon portrait just a month ago and prior. So that could possibly be proof his code was likely touched by the Blizz devs.
Also, I want to add that if you are killing Vixx and looting from him, that I heard if you're carrying 10 of these, he will no longer drop any loot for you anymore. Because max out at a stack of 10, and this will make the game's code not drop anymore of them for you, including the rest of his loot table, the toys. So definitely make sure you get those out of your bags or you'll be farming him endlessly for no reason. Brutal right?
And finally, back to the math - Vixx spawns about 7% of runs, but his toys drop % is very obscure knowledge. But I have personally killed him an abundance of times across multiple toons, farming him every single day, and only got his . I have yet to see , which is the one I actually want. So I would estimate each toy is probably around a 3-5% drop rate from what I have personally witnessed. So here is where the math gets crazy: If he spawns 7% of the time, and his toys are around a 4% drop rate... This makes getting each toy = 4% of 7% ... which is 0.002 which mean every time you enter The Seat of the Triumvirate you have a .2% of walking out with a toy. So if you're looking to farm this, be ready to possibly find yourself staring down 500 runs.
I just wanted to put this all out there because I've pretty much halted my WoW playing but I have been making getting this one toy my little WoW hobby and I've noticed there is a huge obscurity of information concerning it all online.
Finally, I noticed other people on Vixx's wowhead page saying “During patch 8.3.0 loot legacy rules started applying to Legion instances making Vixx's Chest of Tricks and Unstable Portal Emitter an almost sure drop from Vixx the Collector.” This is the type of false information that can ruin someone's month. The chance of leaving The Seat of the Triumvirate with Vixx's toys is still abysmally small, please don’t listen to false data like this.
In conclusion, I want to say that Blizzard really needs to add spawn and drop % data into the Dungeon Journal. Even consulting a GM resulted in receiving false information that they simply found online themselves. It’s borderline evil having people farm something with obscure information regarding the item because it costs them their real time, their real effort, and their real money.
So if you are still determined to farm these toys, go for it, you will eventually get them if you don’t relent - I just wanted people to know ahead of time what they’re getting themselves into so they don’t just jump into it and get angry and find themselves farming something they wouldn’t have even begun trying to get had they had all the vital data ahead of time.
