Re: June 21st Update - Level 11 skill!

This should come as a surprise to no one, but...

Your best bet for plasteel is the robot hive. All of the enemies there drop it.
Battle Drone: 2%
Defender: 2% (also drops titanium at about 8%)
Investigator: 5%
Hovertank: 15%

Percentages based on ~900 turns.

Of course it had to be you. I particularly liked the *GOVERNMENT CENSURE* of the word "do". That's a very Lord of Darkness thing, replacing two letters with seventeen.

Re: Coordinated spading effort

But +98% at 50% means the final rate is 99%... you should be able to get a no drop at +98%... I should... but 99% *is* very high, so I'm not that surprised I didn't get one.

Re: Coordinated spading effort

I *think* enerbun has a 50% drop rate, or close to it. To verify, I'm starting with +95% item drop, and I'll work my way up from there. +95% - 91/92 +96% - 80/81 +97% - 45/46 +98% - 500/500 From page 2 ;) I've kept editing it as I went along.

Re: Coordinated spading effort

I'm not sure what I should do next. Enerbun drop is probably 49 or 50%. IF it's 49, +98% gives 97.02% chance of drops, while +99% gives 97.51% IF it's 50%, +98% gives 99% chance of drops, while +99% gives 99.5% Should I skip to +99%, in which case the very improbable non-drop would confirm 50%? Or s...

If some nice Gadgeteer out there could throw some MD on me, that'd be awesome. It's awkward getting up to +98% when I'm trying to keep my stats lowered. I've hit up HAL (a few days ago, actually) for it, but it appears to be down.

I'll try that once I get back up to level 12. Fortunately, Solitude just happened to have 3 piles of bricks to make the equipment set, so I didn't have to go out of my way for that. In the meantime, I'll keep playing turns at the Gate and editing the results into my post above.
