I think you should calculate the percentage of Gold, Purple, Blue and White only as a fraction of Equippable Item drops, not total drops. --Karlos 08:16, 4 March 2006 (CST)

Hmm... think it'd look alright? I'd probably have to add another colum in there somewhere - Evil_Greven 08:25, 4 March 2006
I think this is perfectly fine, as long as the equippable items are presented together, not in parts, in the monster article.
By the way. The one who added the column for totals and recalculated the percentages was me. My browser had logged me out. I will add the drop rates to the hydras, but you should propably update them when you update this data. --Gem 10:06, 4 March 2006 (CST)

New hydras are cheapskates?[edit source]

There may be some connection between loading a new instance and the first few hydras not dropping loot. At least that has been my experience on several runs: the first group of 4-5 I kill, only 2 or 3 will drop. Anyone else notice this? -- Bishop icon2.png Bishop [rap|con] 18:05, 12 March 2006 (CST)

Yes, this is the basic assumption we have in our theory on what causes creatures to drop "nothing." See Drop rate#Types of Drops. It's number 9. If you check the compiled data, you'll see that the Bladed Aatxe for example have a near 5% chance of dropping nothing, compared to less than 1% for creatures deeper in the Underworld. The first batch of Aatxe killed typically will have two drops of nothing. --Karlos 18:26, 12 March 2006 (CST)
