[Begging] what is the %?

Discussion in 'UO Crime' started by Lord Drakelord, Nov 1, 2008.

  1. I have a GM beggar and wish to know, what is the % of chance of getting the small webs during trick or treat? 1%? 2%?? Or is it higher?
  2. the chance of getting a "rare" is 2%.

    one of theese rares is the net, but there are 4 or more "rare" trick or treats avaible.

    so the chance is around 0.5%, because if you trick or treat one npc, the RNG checks if you are on the 98% side or on the 2% side, after this, if you have luck and are on the 2% side, it rolls again, what you get, if there are 4 items you have a 25% chance to get one.

    so ca. 0.5% is your chance for a web.

    My first 100 ToTs got me 3 rares. My second 100 got me 0.

    The RNG is ****ing bull****.

    well heres my take on it... I can tell you I have 778 Candy Corn, 1052 pumkin muffins, 892 pixie sticks (as for rares.. I have 5 milks, 4 cakes, 5 pizzas, 8 wines, 3 cookies (and only 1 of the webs). so doing the math it looks like its about a .9 drop rate for me, now if you added in the amount of times I have died or been tricked I am probalby down near the .6 % range to get a rare drop. And my percentage to get a spider web...well that would be a meer .04 % chance which at being a GM beggar is just rediculous and almost a slap in the face!

    Should have made the web like the .05% to those with begging at like 90 to 99.9 and atleast give the GM beggars something for their efforts like up near a 1 %... I GMed begging a year ago, just to have for that rare occaision that it would ever be worth having, now that I have it.. it still doesnt seem like it was worth it! I would be better off farming the trinkets and spellbooks - selling them and buying the small webs!

    There are actually 7 rare beg-or-treats roll chances. So technically speaking you have a 2/7 chance (.2857%~) to get either a web facing east or south once you roll a rare treat which according to them is 2%. That would give you a total chance of 0.0571%~ at getting a web each time you trick or treat.

    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.
