confused over replica drops

    Ok so after weeks involving over 100 champs many of which were done solo or with one other person and getting nothing, I take my red for a quick spin in despise, kill one or two blues and possibly a rat and a slime, then sit hidden on the island to pounce once scrolls have been awarded. To my surprise i see the message about a special item dropping in my pack and see I have the fang of ractus (oh joy :/ )

    I head to the bank and drop of my spoils and return to do much the same thing, fight a blue or two, kill no more than 3 or 4 spawn creatures and bam.. swamp tile item. After comparing notes with some other people it seems they have found the same trend, the more you work a spawn the less likely you are to receive these items over people who don't touch the boss and do minimal damage to spawn.

    Has anyone else experienced similar results?

    ive solo'd a few and never a drop, also worked around 100 complete spawns and nothin either...but i haven't tried the "hardly kill anything" route yet :)

    I have already showed up to a spawn when it was at the boss and jumped in and gotten something... but it occurs few and far between.

    I've gotten them both ways (only 2 so far). Got a tile by working the spawn and hitting the champ. Got a statue by raiding on last level, killed a blue, maybe 2 or 3 silver serpents and then hit the champ. Both were on blue chars, and I haven't gotten anything on a red char that raids.

    ive lost track of how many spawns ive done but im sure its over 100. I only play reds so that being said ive done both entire spawns and kill a few blues maybe some spawn. and have got nothign either way.

    PS i love that if you do the spawn regardless if you hit the champ you have a shot at something if you are on the same subserver when the spawn ends. Balances out some of the advantage raiders have. ive had guildies work a spawn get to level 4 lose it on a raid and hide in dungen to get powerscrolls and a few replicas

    You don't even have to self res. If you are a ghost when the champ dies and you get the drop, the item will be in your backpack when you res.
