I think the Dungeoneering bosses drop table should be changed, since the equipped they drop is 100% guaranteed, so instead of it saying "Uncommon" have it say "Random*" with * being "The higher leveled the boss is, the better odds of a higher tier drop". ScionCrush 22:19, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I've killed a primal forgotten warrior and got nothing but a couple of runes. It is not 100%. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 22:27, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

Its not about the forgotten warrior, its about the Bosses, like Yk'Lagor, Shadow Forger.... --ScionCrush 22:39, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
The bosses don't drop their special item 100% of the time either. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 22:47, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
This suggestion is not asking to state that they will certainly drop an item. LordDarkPhantom 14:11, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Support - It seems like tier 1-4 equipment is more common anyway; I get more salve and bathus drops than argonite and zephyrium. It does seem like levels have an impact as well; my first katagon drop came from a 200+ boss. As of yet, I haven't got anything above fractite from a <100 boss.

Support - As long as we are certain that higher level bosses are more likely to drop higher level items. More specifically, a higher level boss will drop a tier1 item less often than a tier2 item. LordDarkPhantom 14:11, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Say that the higher level is likely to drop on the top of dropsline template (use something like {{DropsLine|Dungeoneering=Yes}}). Saying random will not show that primal equipment is much rarer than novite, when it is. bad_fetustalk 16:41, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

No, on higher level teams, large floors etc... Better drops become more common, Odds are if you rush c1 1:1 small and rush Bal'lak you'll have the same chances of getting Novite than getting Primal while doing c6 5:5 large; and getting anything under PROM is difficult on c6 5:5, so thats what the * is, because while drops may be random, rarity of the metal is determined by the settings of the Dungeon. This is why boss drops are to be considerated as "Special" since they arent a roulette like regular drops, they have factors that affect rarity.ScionCrush 23:19, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
Also, as stated above, it will say that higher level bosses drop higher level items more frequently than lower level stuff. I think assigning a certain rarity for each item, disregarding the level of the boss, is pretty wrong. (This is assuming that a higher level boss will drop a tier1 item less often than a tier2 item.) LordDarkPhantom 17:55, November 12, 2010 (UTC)

Changed to neutral - I still don't like saying random, since higher tier will never be the most common drop etc; saying random suggests that it could be. bad_fetustalk 18:14, November 12, 2010 (UTC)

Bump - Anyone have anything else to say? --LiquidTalk 23:53, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

Neutral - I get confused about Dungeoneering. --中亚人/中亞人 (Chinasian/Jeffwang16) 跟我谈话 16:43, November 19, 2010 (UTC)

Helpful. - [Pharos] 02:06, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Per nom. Looks fine and it sounds about right for their drops. - [Pharos] 02:06, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I think the best solution is to simply say on all dungeoneering boss pages that the boss will drop an item (depending on the boss), but the tier will differ based on the combat level of the boss and the players involved in dungeon. HaloTalk 23:29, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - With a group of 130+s in a large dung, I think I've only ever seen t11 drops. Summoning-icon.png To3cutt3r Talk HS Log Summoning-icon.png 23:40, November 21, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, that sounds right. HaloTalk 00:58, November 22, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - just add a "note:" thing. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 12:13, November 22, 2010 (UTC)
