    There are two options, one that faces south and one that faces east. I'd like to figure out the price lvl on these so if your interested post your bid.

    Not sure how frequently they drop but I´ll start with 50K for each direction.

    2% chance with trick or treat if and only if you have gm begging.

    Ah, I thought they were from the spider...

    So with the notorious RNG involved, I guess that would be like 1 out of 10,000 NPCs... :lol:

    Ya its not a very good chance and with the assumed lack of gm beggars on sp I doubt there is very many webs on the shard.

    The actual drop rate is WAY lower than 2%.

    2% chance is different then 2% drop rate.

    I sold a pair, one each way, for 2 million on Europa. 1 million each. Buyer set the price, I hadn't a clue what to ask for them.

    Can you elaborate on this?

    When you flip a coin you have a 50% chance it will come up heads. It doesn't mean if you flip the coin it will come up heads 50% of the time.
    Same with begging, your not going to get 2 webs for every 100 begs.
    I got my first web on my 6th beg, doesn't mean I have a 1 in 6 chance to get another one.

    Er, yes, I do know about basic probability.

    Personally I have completed almost exactly 1000 trick or treat operations with GM begging. I have had three webs, one harvest wine and two cookies. That is six specials. With a 2% chance of a special drop, you would have expected 20. Only six with that many trials is certainly statistically significant and compares to results that others have reported.

    took me 3 hours to get my first one, and about the same to get the next 3.

    and as I read it, it's a 2% chance to get a special, which could be any one of the set of 7 items. Relying on someone else's maths from the beggars forum I read that means a 0.0571% chance of getting a web each time you trick or treat.

    Quote from the begging forum: -

    "Sadly, the statistics do not work in my favor as I have over 51000 total trick or treats and only have gotten 122 webs. Not exactly the number the statistics say I should have."

    51000!?!?!?!?!. But if that is to be believed, it is about a 0.25% drop rate on webs, very similar to my experience.

    so how much will the begged webs sell for? 500k? 1 mil?

    I don't think I'd sell mine for less then 1m because of the difficulty coupled with the annoyance of getting exploded SO MUCH.
