Feedback 2017/09/29[edit]

Should create a drop rate table research page to allow people to contribute and find out average drop rates. Just did 250 of these so would be a good start.

Hey, I just made the page here. I'm guessing we're still missing quite a few drops, so I've been general where I can (e.g. T5 gems instead of individual gems, unless you find only 1 or 2 drop). Please update it or let me know if you get any items not listed, and I can update it for you. Thanks for your contributions!--Rain Spell (talk) 21:23, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

Desolation drops[edit]

Seems like ones dug up in Desolation drop Congealed Putrescence instead of Forgemetal. Also seems like Ancient Surveyors Tools have a rather low drop rate, got 2 over 10 chests. Opened 10 chests, someone more confident than me put it in the drop rate table please. 10 chests: Trade Contracts - 72 Cash - 70c Spirit Shard - 1 T5 Gem - 4 T6 Gem - 1 Hamaseen Cache - 1 Milling Stones - 10 Congealed Putrescence - 9 Common Unidentified - 8 Masterwork Unidentified - 6 Rare Unidentified - 2 Ancient Surveyor's Tools - 2 The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 02:15, 10 October 2017‎ (UTC).

I'm hesitant to put in a section for the surveyor tools because you stop getting them after 10, and the table will eventually be skewed away from them. Do the ones in the desolation have a different ID from the others? If there are multiple chests, then we may have to do multiple tables. Surveyor Tools felt like a 40% chance to me. It took me around 25 chests, give or take, to get all 10.--Rain Spell (talk)
Got some more, in another 20 chests I got another 5 tools. I do believe chests dug up in Desolation have a different code, as I recieved no Forgemetal, only Putrescence from mine. There is also a chance drops may be influenced by where they're opened, as I opened 3 or so in my Guild Hall and got nothing but trade contracts and a t5 gem, though that may have just been bad luck.
The easiest way to tell if they're unique per map is if they stack or not. I'll check tomorrow when I'm on, but if someone else wants to, go for it. --Rain Spell (talk) 04:56, 11 October 2017 (UTC)
