    Hi all,

    i couldnt find anything about this posted yet, sorry if its still double.

    I went out for a couple of hours to max out my Valor and was surprised to not get any Scroll of Trans - not with my luck tamer, not with my mage/stealther and not with my archer...

    So i have 2 questions:

    - does luck even affect the drop rate of SoT's?
    - is the drop rate intesitiy intend to be that low (its ok for me! not complaining, just want to know)

    Txs for your help and thoughts..

    Luck does not seem to affect the SOT drop rate, I get lots on my Sampire with no luck on.

    I have also noticed ( and it could just be superstition) that when I kill big crowds quickly I seem to get more SOT drops.

    With that being said, some spawn I get none, while others I can get 4 to 6.

    There is also supposed to be a limited amount of SoTs that could even drop from each spawn as well, its possible someone farmed the spawn before you, and managed to get a few of the SoTs. inturn would eliminate your drops, or reduce the chance of getting one, until the spawn has been finished and reset.
