    The wrists that drop in Nizara, V. Sash of draining mage proc gear. Wasn't disco'd on befallen until after EoF. Its stilly easy to find people who have never seen what her wrist item even is, its new gear to a lot. lol.

    Reverse luck? My guilds first TTR run dropped crystal gift like the first/second trash mob and got server disco. My very first kill of Matron she actually dropped the wrists many mages farm her for.

    im pretty sure the only people we still have that need praetorian hoods are the 2 rangers and only for back up, but yea it is totally random, soem guilds have robe of al'kabors on their priests, as all their mages have one, we have seen 3 i think, one of them being just the other day, i played a mystic till up about a month ago and didnt see a single mystic bp in 8 monthes, at the time i changed mains i was the LAST person to not have a bp, as for mayong, weve gotten a pretty balanced spread from him, however we have transmuted a few chain shoulders and brawler weapons, tnt mayong however, has dropped the mage ring 85% of the time
    Lol, then make it right the first time you stupid fucks..

    1 fragment of the chime in existence on the server and only 2 mantles of secrets.

    Hey but we did get 2 preatorian hoods in a PHH chest once :P
    man before they made that lower chance of 2 of the same items in one chest, we got those fucking leather priest boots X2 2 weeks in a row, with the week before and the week after the boots + robe and the boots + ring, FUCK THOSE BOOTS!!!

    Do you have the same person lead raids every night? We were seeing similar trends where when the same person is always leading the raid -- you'd always get the same subset of drops and there would be extremely long streaks of not seeing a particular something...

    But we changed who led the raid -- and it became an entirely different set of items that you'd see in 'streaks'.

    Obviously it could be just coincidence in a truly random sequence (as a real random sequence should in fact contain streaks). But it seems we can predictably change our streaks if we change who opens chests over the long run. Perhaps the random seed is somehow tied to the raid leader?

According to Xanadu there are 12 possible items.... with 2 falling per kill this is pretty incredible.

    Another example would be Contested Mayong. In 23 kills of contested Mayong we have seen Star Darkened Bracers twice with zero droping in over 3 months.

    Just so you don't think I am not paying attention to you cloth wearers out there...our Warlock lost what amounted to over 10 coin flips as new recruits finished their complete 7 set bonuses in EH and only finsihed his when there was absolutely nobody left get their legs.

    In addition to hearing about any other "bad beat bad luck " stories, I would love to hear from a devloper or anyone else if some items are more likely to drop from a loot table(and at what ratio) than others or if this is all just random. Thanks

    This has come up in various forms many, many times. Let's hope this will be the last thread like this, at least for a while. It's random. That's all there is to it. (Pseudo-random, actually.) Just bad luck, and that sucks, but it's still random -- let's stop bringing it up.

    Here's a link to the entry in Wikipedia, notice I've linked directly to the "fallacies" section -- Randomness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    And here's a link to the related entry that talks about random vs. pseudo-random number generators -- Random number generator - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    last TTR raid my guild got 3 chests in about 10mins of entering (2 kings tear and a crystal gift)

    ive been raiding every eof zone now for about 3months and have seen 1 piece of my set gear drop while the other night we got 5 pieces of defiler gear (did EH and MMIS) and our defiler finishes his set (1 defiler was present whole time.)

    ive killed chel drak about 50+ times and finally got the dagger of arcane rites last night (which isnt even that good anymore.)

    luck sucks
