    What are the odds!?

    A couple of days ago, a most interesting and hilarious thing happened:

    [​IMG]

    This brings me to my question: at one point, I found a nice link where it was possible to calculate the chances of items dropping at certain monsters, levels, from chests etc. It was a nice webpage calculator; does anyone have the link to that ?

    I saw that happen once, but I forget what the item was. Some very low value piece from an upper-level set also.

    I had something like that happen to me too.

    Got 2 Isenharts Cases from Baal in the same drop.


    Oh, and btw,

    If what you say is true Aragorn, then I would never have finished any space game. :lol: I have mastered these games: Wing Commander, Privateer and Descent. Favorite space dogfights were in asteroid fields.

    Once in a hell game the guy that drops the hellforge hammer (cant remeber his name for some reason), anyway he dropped 2 Gris armors and IK gloves. Very strange drop from him, I have a screenie but cant post it.

    A million to one. But million to one chances happen nine times out of ten.

    Zaan, if you tell me how much MF you had I could tell you the odds (or at least some approximation of them).

    BTW, the program you're after is ATMA.

    Thanks, do you happen to have the link to the online version of the calculator as well? I'll see if I can find that ATMA program...

    haha, i love that quote, tp is the funniest author i have read to date. have you read the whole series, or what? so far the only one i have not yet read is his newest, 'monster regiment'.

    but the scene in 'guards! guards!' where sgt colon is trying to fix the odds so that he has a million to one chance to kill the dragon is awesome. it is a good thing his chance of surviving the ensuing blast or else he would not have been alive. :surprise:

    also to kim, stop being such a smacktard. not everyone has done everything in the entire game, and so get over yourself.

    I am only a few books in so far. :( I absolutely love it though! A friend of mine has read them all and is currently reading Monster Regiment. I think I got that line from Sourcery where the eighth son of an eighth son of an eighth son is born. These are definitely the best books I've ever read though. :)
