K3BA Charm Drop Rate

Post by Mythic~ on Fri Jan 03, 2014 11:15 pm

I've run K3BA on Destruction at least 10 times now and I still haven't had a hammer drop from the necromancers. Has the drop rate been reduced, or am I just unlucky?

I read the docs. Killing over 30 necromancers and not getting a 1/12 drop rate is pretty iffy.

@Mythic it is 7% so it is the same as you get it from first necro ^^

Apparently they don't teach about the gambler's fallacy in Canadian schools. Oh well they don't teach it much in 'Murican schools either. Individual probabilistic events are discreet. Kill a thousand necro's and each time the odd are 1 in 12. Go get yourself a pair of percentile dice from someones gaming bag. Roll them and see how often you get an 01,02,03,04,05,06 or 07.

Okay. For one, I'm surprised how quickly that turned into an ethnic jab. I was born in canada, yeah, but educated in America.
Secondly, let's take a look at drop rate as geometric probability. Maybe I'm unlucky and it'll be my 31st kill that gets me a hammer.

11/12 ^ 30 * 1/12 = ~0.612%.

But whatever, I guess i'm just an unlucky bastard.

say hello to the RNG (random number generator).

okay the rng is a bitch. the first way to deal against the rng, is not to think about the rng. if you count the amount of runs you're not getting it, then you're feeding the RNG. also, repeating a process over and over negatively feeds the RNG as well. For example, you go to duncraig to find a sacred ceremonial armor, and everytime you kill a monster you think "did it drop?" - I can guarantee it will require more time than learning to play beethoven's 9th symphony on a stringless ukulele

so you probably think, "wtf is this guy talking about", well all I'm saying is true. Sometimes the RNG will troll you, so you need to either complete a process in the less repetitive way possible, like try with other build. or randomly go clear blood moor to see if a marksman umo drops and go back to try. as mentioned before, don't pay attention to the RNG. singing songs by rick astley usually helps as it keeps you distracted. or take a trip to alaska and try again tomorrow. belive me, the odds of luck will be in your favor next time.


also, k3k charm is useless.
