Black Dragon drop statistics

Now that the week of dragon farming frenzy is over, it might be a good time to post a bit of statistics. Considering the size of the Black Dragon loot table and the low probability of some of the items, we can of course not get anywhere near to estimating the probabilities of various drops, unless we could get a large number of players to report their drops in an unbiased way (i.e. not just when it’s something exciting) — but that would be harder than herding cats. So the following table is just a simple summary of the drops I got from the 175 or so kills on my guardian. It might give us a rough idea of the relative frequencies of different kinds of drops (e.g. social armor, raid armor, buffs/potions, etc.). A lot of the outcomes are surprisingly skewed; for example, I got one social set 11 times, one 9 times, one 4 times and the other two sets not even once. And I got twice as much HP food as stamina food.

    The skewing is probably due to FC using a poor random number generation. Is typically a problem with MMO’s.
