**ATMA Drop Calc for v1.11**

This is really weird...

I'm creating some Quick Reference Guides for popular MF Targets (Meph, Pindle, etc) and I noticed something weird...

*NOTICE* All numbers come from ATMA Drop Calculator for v1.11...

For Pindle, all numbers are /p1, because according to the Drop Calc, /pX settings doesn't matter with Pindle.

Pindle's chance for Isenhart's Case (MF - 0%, 250%, 500%, 750%, 1000%):

0% ---- 1:1410

250% -- 1:539

500% -- 1:501

750% -- 1:502

1000% - 1:503

Does that make sense? The higher your MF% the LESS it will drop?

With Pindle, it's like that with EVERY Set item...

Let's try Uniques...

Pindle's chance for Venom Ward (MF - 0%, 250%, 500%, 750%, 1000%):

0% ---- 1:3663

250% -- 1:1628

500% -- 1:1377

750% -- 1:1276

1000% - 1:1221

Hmm, that makes more sense... Slowly increases your chance, which is the way MF is SUPPOSE to work...

Let's try Mephy... Mephy will go by /pX Settings AND MF%...

Meph's chance for Isenhart's Case (/p1 - 0%, 250%, 500%, 750%)

0% ---- 1:120

250% -- 1:50

500% -- 1:48

750% -- 1:49

Hmmm, same thing... Are the chances for set items broke? Or is it some sort of /p1 thing as the pattern doesn't fit with /p3 and higher...

Meph's chance for Isenhart's Case (/p3 - 0%, 250%, 500%, 750%)

0% ---- 1:101

250% -- 1:42

500% -- 1:41

750% -- 1:41

Meph's chance for Isenhart's Case (/p5 and Higher - 0%, 250%, 500%, 750%)

0% ---- 1:98

250% -- 1:41

500% -- 1:40

750% -- 1:39

Meph's chance for Venom Ward (/p1 - 0%, 250%, 500%, 750%)

0% ---- 1:292

250% -- 1:130

500% -- 1:110

750% -- 1:102

Meph's chance for Venom Ward (/p3 - 0%, 250%, 500%, 750%)

0% ---- 1:245

250% -- 1:109

500% -- 1:92

750% -- 1:85

Meph's chance for Venom Ward (/p5 and Higher - 0%, 250%, 500%, 750%)

0% ---- 1:228

250% -- 1:106

500% -- 1:89

750% -- 1:83

With the above numbers, for Pindle, the best MF (For those Higher TC SET items only) is ~500%. While the MF for Uniques should be as high as possible... It depends on what you are going for I suppose...

As for Meph, with the numbers above, optimal /pX setting is /p3... Less HP/XP but slightly more runs (seems minimal to me) WHICH ARE FASTER... I think it's worth the cut in /pX setting to get a better chance of getting Uniques from him...

Input is always welcome :thumbsup:

If someone wants to test these numbers, please do, and post them here when you are finished.
