    So the latest months i've been farming upwards to 60k lockboxes. trying to get a hold of a blackvenom blade. My theory is that if you get it to drop from a lockbox that it will then scale. no matter what level you are. lvl 10-19-29 +++ Sadly after 60k boxes no BVB but i have had a couple of other drops.

    So what i do is farm it on a trial level 110 char and then open them and send them to my 19 Rogue.
    It's a tedious thing but here's my results so far. I've gotten 1 doomspike (This did not scale since it's a dungeon MinIlevel item) and 1 Talon of Vultros. The good news is that the Talon of Vultros did scale. it scaled to level 19. What also further supports this theory is that the Howling Blade scales to level 19 even though it used to be req level 31. As with Talon of Vultros tho' it has had several level requirements over the years. I have also gotten Blood Ring Nonscaled. Demon band Non-scaled and a couple of other rings nonscaled. A fair amount of Recipes non of note so far.

    My call anyway is that i hope people see this post and try it out themselves. As i have farmed so much now that i hope to see someone get lucky just to get a confirmation that it still drops and if it then scales. We might be looking at an 8 agi proc dagger for 19s.

    Thank you for reading it out. Please post comments if you have any confirmed drops as of lately from the boxes.(screenshots would be appreciated aswell.) as i am reluctant to try and farm the rare because of scaling tech and how items used to drop. That would be easier however i guess. But i am not entirely sure what the droprate is at.

    Thanks !

    I've had this theory since BFA prepatch... gave up after a while after farming with @Puempeekstoh , nice to know that ToV and Howling Blade are scaling.

    If and when someone does get a BVB at level 19 it will be worth more than any twink item has been before...

    Farming Battered Junkboxes. Drops from Humanoids pickpocket in the 20-29 range i think it is. or what used to be that range. they scale to 60 now. There's several spots. I've found a couple of spots in duskwood that's fairly decent

    I'll give it a try for a few thousand. Any spots that would be more efficient that the Stockades?

    Wouldn't that massively suck, though? If you get it to drop from a box and it's still req 21.

    Still worth a decent chunk of gold to sell, but would feel quite defeating.

    At least then we'd know one way or another?

    Yep, i'd want to give it a try atleast. i'm currently at 62k. boxes just got an evocator's Blade today @ level 20. So another blue dagger. just not the right one :p But yeah it would feel really friggin bad if it didn't scale. but the alternative is so much better. What if it does scale !?!!

    Then a lot of people are going to be investing a large portion of time to farming lockboxes. :confused:

    Everyone who's farming it on a 20, farm it on a 19 instead. Should be about the same ilvl if it scales (23), and could be worth alot more if required 19.

    Not to turn you down but I don't believe the item could scale down as to require level 19, since the min is 21. Not sure about this, but its how many items work. Say you farm BFD for RoP on a 19, you get it req lv20, since its the minimum.

    Howling blade and other items scale down that have required a higher level. Not from the same drop source, I know... it would be awesome to know if it does or does not work though before I start farming boxes lol

    Well, maybe somebody could copy a 19 loaded with unlocked boxes to the PTR, over and over again, until finding it out.
