1/40 chance at a leg piece (Top, Middle or Bottom)



There's no way this is true :o
I've done thousands of araxxor kills solo and never gotten a drop rate below 1/50 for leg pieces.
Makes me think there are other modifiers that make accounts more or less lucky.
This is seen when players return to the game after a long break and have an insane luck. Or even with newly created accounts. Or ironmen accounts for example.
Would really like to know the factors that affect RNG. Because it obviously isn't as randomized as we think it is.

That's 100% anecdotal. I have a few thousand kills too and my leg rate is around 1/35, about the same as the post under yours. There's a thread somewhere that pretty much proves the drop rate is around this. You just got unlucky.

All of your examples are just silly myths just like killing dinos in dg giving less exp. there's no such thing as "ironman luck", it's a meme lol. There's no magic behind probability/RNG.


I've seen many returning players get very rare drops with minimal effort. It can't be due to chance. It seems that the game adds in an amount of "luck" every day perhaps. Meaning that "luck" adds up over time. Which is why these returning players get these lucky drops.
It also seems that new accounts have a large amount of "luck" when they first start playing and it goes down gradually. This can't be a coincidence. I am sure there's a system behind that.

yes I assume they went out of their way to code that in for no good reason. totally more reasonable than some people got lucky of the thousands and thousands of active players


But there is a good reason. They'd want returning players to get lucky on drops so they will be more likely to stay and play more. If you play long enough you'll notice this pattern. It's not just random people getting lucky. Returning players definitely have more RNG than the average player.

no, you just notice it more because regular players aren't gonna say "wow I got a leg drop" on reddit. returning players are more inclined to share their excitement. typical players don't care as much.


Sure If that's what you want to believe.
I am almost certain such a system exists.

Trying to work out if you're meming, autistic or just a whiny bitch complaining about your drop rate not being exactly the same as the given drop rate.


My point wasn't about complaining. It was to say there's a difference between the RNG between accounts. There is some sort of "luck pool" that each player has. small parts of it are used up everytime you roll a drop. And it most likely recharges a bit every day. This is why returning players seem to get really lucky drops when they come back because of the built up "luck". New accounts also have this pool set at a high number also explaining their good luck at the start of the game.This pool also seems to recharge the more levels/quest you complete. The more "luck" you have in your pool the more likely you'll receive certain drops.

Abyssal Hound

X/150,000 chance of obtaining the Abyssal hound from a Shattered Worlds chest.

X is your starting world multiplied by the total number of worlds you have completed (current world streak). For example, if you started at World 80 and went on to World 100 then the formula would be 80 x 20 = 1,600.

So you're saying that if i do a world 1-200 streak i have the same chance to get the pet as someone who did world 40-45 streak? This seems like an oversight and bad coding in general.

Vinny

1/100 chance on completion of Wisps of the Grove D&D

Isn't 100 weeks a bit too much for just a cosmetic pet?
