Quick math fun

Followup to yesterday’s post (stats stuff):

If the droprate for the Hilt is 0.25%(UPDATE: Now appears to be 0.1%), and all mobs drop it at that same rate, then you have X chance of seeing it at least once after Y kills:

  • 50%: 277 693
  • 75%: 554 1386
  • 90%: 920 2301
  • 95%: 1197 2995
  • 99%: 1840 4600

To put this in context, a full run of all three dungeons usually kills about ~100 mobs.

  1. According to Wowhead, the drop rate seems to be closer to 0.1%. This means that there is only a 63% chance to drop if you farm 1000mobs.

  2. […] Some nice numbers here from The Fluid Druid in case you are thinking of farming […]
