I am a level 50 fire wizard and have fought Viktor snowcrusher almost 200 times and still not gotten the mantle of embers. I have gotten everything elts he drops multiple times. I was wondering if my chances of getting it ever go up. Thanks for any answers i could get.
I know this isn't really an answer to your question, but I truly think there is no rhyme or reason to the boss drops. I popped into the Village of Sorrow the other day to farm Oyotomi for a life blade. I ended up helping a guy who had already been there 8 hours with no luck. Within 30 minutes I had 3 life blades. I think when it comes to special items (be they clothes, weapons or pets) it's all about the luck of the draw.
and no, I didn't have the heart to tell him my luck was better than his that day.
