Hello all,

I have been off and on this wiki for some time but now that I'm a member, I feel I can be of service a tad more to this wiki than before. Anyway, I noticed some of our drop tables (or drop logs, whatever you want to call them) are missing info. An example of this is Warped bat. I would like to fill in those tables with info (after a myriad of kills of course). However, I don't know what common (for an example) really means. Is that 80%? 70%? Maybe 60%? Without this info, filling in drop tables would be, of course, unreliable. So, if any of you know the answer, post away! Thanks, Fletching-icon.png Iceslide123 Fletching cape.pngFree UGCs

Comment - In my opinion, perhaps it would be best to use your own judgement. Take a look at some other drop logs of common monsters that are already filled out, and go off of those. The rarity is just an estimate, not an actual recording (Rare isn't a certain percentage, etc). sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 03:47, April 7, 2011 (UTC)

Comment - It is mostly up to your judgement and common sense, but a rough rule here is:

    • Common - The most common of items. Renowned for being common. Nearly always dropped.
    • Uncommon - Dropped sometimes, but not necessarily renowned for being common
    • Rare - Rarely dropped. Will take quite a few drops to obtain.
    • Very rare - Renowned for being rare among players. Hardly ever dropped. Items like the divine sigil, dragon items, etc.

There are also the 100% drops, random for dungeoneering bosses and ring of wealth drops, but they are the main ones. Hunter cape (t).png Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask.png 04:49, April 7, 2011 (UTC)
