    Hello, I am trying to coming back to the game trolling around the Abyss. I managed to kill dozens of those "renowned"-mobs, but never got a drop. Therefore some questions:
    - Are there confirmed numbers of drops per say 100 kills?
    - Does luck affect the chance of getting a drop?
    - I found a thread mentioning that artifacts may spawn to the ground. Still true?
    - In Doom there was this special "accumulation-thing", by killing bosses you got better and better chances for a drop next time. I guess this is not implemented for these guys?

    Best regards, and thx in advance, Fizzle

    >The SA-Arties drop on the renowned bosses, not on the mobs. They are rare. I got some Tinker Legs after 200 devourers. But I got 3 Basilisk-Breastplates after 50 Rat Bosses. I donĀ“t know a %-chance...

    - Does luck affect the chance of getting a drop?

    >No

    - I found a thread mentioning that artifacts may spawn to the ground. Still true?

    >Aye, there are 4 weapons in the Abyss and 1 in the Underworld. You need stealing skill to get them.

    - In Doom there was this special "accumulation-thing", by killing bosses you got better and better chances for a drop next time. I guess this is not implemented for these guys?

    >Right. Sheer and utter randomness ;-)

    The only other place I've found where the Doom-like "drop counter" works is in Covetous lvl3 (the area above Cora). I get 1-6 drops a day there (Heph, brightblade, tundra, etc.) depending on how many and how high fame are he monsters killed in the various spawns.
