    ...

    Ok, I gotta ask this one... how many superstitions does a system like ToT create?

    One of my own: I CANNOT seem to keep my backpack open while farming for minors, it seems like they never drop while it is open (sort of the "watched pot" syndrome).

    Another one: Doesn't it always seem like the drops happen on a small creature as opposed to a large one (i.e. spend an amount of time going after mid-high level mobs, then get the drop on a mongbat or lizardman)?

    The more you die, the more drops you get. I died 2 times and got 2, I died 6 times and got 6.

    More luck = less drops.

    Killing lots of easy stuff is better then fewer harder.

    When i get nothing for some time i always go looking inside the bank box, hoping that i missed a message and that it went straight to the bank. (Heirloom)

    Often thats not the case. :)

    OK, this is funny.

    I cant comment on the backback thing. I guess I'll have to try it now. Gee, thanks! :wall:

    But, the small animal thing,,,LOL
    I got 3 drops last night off birds! I must agree with you here.

    I do this like I did the dungeon spawns. High fame, low fame..rinse and repeat. Always had decent results, same now.

    if you are expecting one you will not get one I only get anything when I have cleared it from my mind and I am truly not expecting it.

    While spawning, I can sustain a rate of one kill each three seconds during the first level, as they spawn very very quickly and are all one hit wonders. This is where I get all my artis from.

    More monster fame doesn't seem to outweigh killing weak creatures in bulk.

    This am, four of us goofed off at the Tok spawn, all I did basically was pull, hardly any offense used, just pull for all & let them kill. I received 2, 3 friends received 13 or 14 between them on one spawn, the 2 Necro's ea received 6 apiece & the other char only received 1 or 2. (This was from the start of the spawn) We did 3 spawns & guessing we pulled at least 30 TOT's total from them.
