Hey, i've been off and on of wiki for a while now, usually not bothering to log in. I've been thinking, and i'm not exactly good at this kind of thing so i dont know if it's plausible or not, but... Would it be possible to do a monsters standard drops like how charm logs are kept?

This would be absurdly valuable information to players, much more so then simply "it's rare." Haveing a percent attached to the rarity of something, based on hard data, would be so nice it's not funny. It could but an end to a lot of irritating speculation too.

Unfortunatly that'd mean logging every single drop you get and how many kills you made, but it's really only a small step up from charms at this point, right? Only diffrence is you note "dragon spear" instead of gold/green/crims/blue.

I dont know how crazy the mechanics of the charm logs get, but it LOOKS like it could be adapted to drops, especially with how these new drop templates are coming out anyway. It just seems like the next natrual step.

So, fellow wikians... WHAT SAY YOU? (couldn't help myself :) )

Comment - User:Joeytje50 proposed something like this, but I don't remember the name. But the main reason for opposition (I think) was that you need an incredibly big sample size, which isn't usually possible. ɳex undique 22:31, April 4, 2011 (UTC)
