Gearbox Software removes 21 Anointments from Borderlands 3

Gearbox Software removed 21 anointments with the July 23, 2020 patch. These won’t be able to roll on a piece of gear anymore. If you have an item that has one of these anointments, it will function properly. They are not removed from the game, they just won’t appear on any new items. Gearbox did increase some of the anointments when the Guardian Takedown released. But this didn’t engage the community as they hoped. Therefore, they chose to remove them to clean up the loot drops. This should make anointments meaningful again, instead of turning an item into instant trash. With the Revenge of the Cartels event, Gearbox did a lot of good anointments to the game. Fans were relieved to hear that the Cartel Anoints were here to stay. We can’t say the same about the following anointments.
