Since yesterdays nerf concerning Air Elemental farm, i was looking for other (and more engaging) ways to find mysterious stanger.
I had great succes with 3-1 normal with >75% Stranger encounters. My strategy was start the bounty and if mystery node was <=4 challenges i did it until the node. After that classic retire and cashed in the coins with normally at least one being legendary coins. It took me way longer than old stat but it was okay and i got 5 mercs to task 7 yesterday (starting between taks 1 and 4). Today i wanted to start farming higher tasks but in the last 7 attempts i had only 1 stranger.
Now there's three possibilities:
1 bad luck
2 secret nerf
3 the nerf yesterday didn't concern merc level, but also merc progress
Anyone else recognize lower rates or what are your new farming strats?
