    Tired of drop rates being some rng BS. Speaking of BS I also hear these walls speaking of lucky accounts and what not, give me a break. This is some ridiculous rumor people come up with to cover up the sh%#ty rng system in place.

    Sorry, I speak from 15yrs experience of it.

    These stats don't mean a damn thing.. but they are accurate.

    Stopped counting after 200 runs:
    Medusa - without tile statue or slither
    Devour of Souls - a set of Animated Legs of the Insane tinker.
    Doom - without an orny.

    These runs were done by me in the past year, because I either wanted/needed them.

    Glad I put in the work! FU

    I got my first drop from all of them in like 1-10 runs of each, check this out... (my medusa drops) I have the statues lining my castle... but I still need about 103 more Medusa statues to finish it...

    I just wish those venoms were Slithers instead. :sad2:

    That base luck.... it's amazing. :D

    I do about 10 medusa runs a week and have gotten 2 venoms and 1 slither but have never gotten a 3.0 sot, floor tile or statue. I end up with a ironwood bow, stone dragon tooth or serpent staff about every other run.

    Without miniscule rng drop rates people would zip through stuff faster, and they would have to develop more content. The name of the dev game the past several years is time grind.

    I imagine they could make it a points system but still have it take a billion hours. Only problem with that you are sacrificing the potential to get several drops in short order.

    Thats sad and funny at the same time.

    If you by chance were to pvp a bit you would maybe have a better result?

    Playing the game for something other then items could be a whole new expereince.

    Just sayin...

    Grindage at its worst. You may have a better odds at killing a person wearing the slither it in fel and running out of insurance money first.
