Incredible night !

Last night was so incredible i had to share this. I was doing key runs without any luck so far till i took a break and saw a tkey offer for few pgems game. I did the deal and then permed a game to xfer the key to my key hunter. I got a connection interruption in the process and loose the key. **** happen. So i started key hunting again and guess what the summoner dropped... not one but TWO hate key at the same time ! I didn't even know it was possible !

That would have been a funny conclusion so far but it was not over.

Later that night i found a nice Superior Royal Shield +44 res 192 def +12% durability and decided to socket it to make Exile in it. I dropped it on floor for another char who still have socket quests and guess what... another connection interruption !

Damn it ! I was red !

I decided to do a last countess run and god knows i've made a good move because a weapon rack in the tower dropped me an HoZ ! It's like the game had a spirit watching my every moves ! Math randomness has a way of making you believe in someting bigger than just luck.

happy ending gaming.

Congratz on your find. The beuty of random item generation! :wink3:

Btw countess/nila/summoner can drop 5 keys at once. But better go play the lottery.

Nice luck!
I had a rather lucky nite myself last nite. Normally, my hell meph runs never bear anything good, so I kinda do them as an afterthought. Good thing I was careful to do them last nite.
On my first run, I found a Demon Limb and a Jade Talon, then a weapon rack dropped a Fleshrender, just in time for twinking my Fury druid. I only had enough room for one more run, and I did Meph only this time. A Mavina's Bow! Seems like last night was our lucky nite, market!

The math for the keys are approxiamtely 1/50 per chance to drop and each of them rolls 5 times. This means that there is about 1/12 to get exactly one key, something on the order of 1/60 to get 2 keys, something on the order of 1/350 to get 3keys and 1/1500 to get four and 1/75000 to get 5.

To my knowledge there is nothing in the game coding that prevents 4 or five from dropping.

If anyone that is knowledgable in this area would correct me, then please just point me to the right location.

Although everything i have read so far about key drops, by people much smarter than I am, indicate 4 or 5 is possible.

FYI I only run nith and I have had 3 dkeys drops 4 times so far this ladder, although never 4 or 5.

That is correct - 4-5 Key drops are possible, but I believe the rareity for 2+ Keys per drop goes like this : +25% chance (3 keys) +50% Chance (4Keys) +100% (5keys) : the start ratio is around 1/60 runs - so 3 keys = 1/75 4 keys = 1/105 Ect.

I dont know where did you get those values from. At least I never heard of these values. :scratch:

Does that mean 4 keys drops every 105th kill on average? Muahahahaha (please take no offence of this, but I'm allmost sure this isn't possible)

If there is no cap coded (as I assumed cause I heard it some times from not really trustworthy resources), then the odd's shoud be like aicoped explained. Little lower cause of nodrops which he obviously didn't counted.

I've run nihlithak close to a thousand times this ladder and never seen more than 1 key drop at a time. I doubt these numbers since I would think 1/12 * 1/12 - P(only 1 drop) * 1/12 < 1/144 would be the highest possible drop rate of 2 keys.
