The rare drop table is a list of additional items that can be gained alongside other drops. Luck enhancers will affect the quality of loot obtained when receiving the reward.

When slaying monsters, some have a chance to access loot from the rare drop table in addition to loot from their own unique drop table. Unlike the a monster's standard drop table, the rare drop table is shared by many monsters including most Slayer monsters and bosses. Luck enhancers are taken into account when the mob is killed (for most monsters) and is not based on what is worn before the monster is killed. See below for a list of monsters that give access to the rare drop table.

By using a grace of the elves, the rare drop table can be accessed through skilling by looting Seren spirits. Luck enhancers are taken into account based on what is worn when the Seren spirit is looted rather than when it spawns.

Mechanics

When a creature is killed or a seren spirit is looted, the items it gives are chosen from a list of possible drops, which is different for each creature. This drop is chosen at random. Some items are more likely to be given than others. For the monsters that give access to the rare drop table, one of the "items" on their list of drops is actually a trigger that gives a second "roll" on another list of items: the rare drop table.

The rare drop table is actually a set of three tables, referred to as the Gem Table, the Rare Table, and the Super Rare Table. When a player accesses the rare drop table, the "dice" are thrown onto the Gem Table. The player may get an uncut gem, a half of a key, and other select items, or they may roll onto the Rare Table. The Rare Table has more valuable items, and a small chance to roll onto the third table, the Super Rare Table. This is the rarest table and offers the most valuable items such as Hazelmere's signet ring.[1] For all tables, the less valuable items are more likely to be chosen than the expensive ones.

Luck enhancers

Luck enhancers can affect chances to access the rare drop table, as well as improve loot obtained from the rare drop table.

Tier Effect
1 Increased chance to access the rare drop table
2 Increased chance to access the rare drop table and receive improved loot from it
3 Further increased chance to access the rare drop table and receive improved loot from it
4 Still further increased chance to access the rare drop table and receive improved loot from it, and the ability to receive the Vecna skull and Hazelmere's signet ring

The Tier 2 luck enhancers have no influence on the rare drop table, although it will improve the odds of receiving a better gem should a player roll one [2].

Tables

The following is a list of items on the rare drop table.

Gem table

This is the first level of the tables, containing the least valuable rewards.

  1. ^ Moves the drop up to the rare table

Rare table

The rare table is the second level of the rare drop table, containing drops of intermediate value. Monsters of 80+ combat and 50+ Slayer can access this table directly. Strykewyrms are an exception, as they can also roll the gem table.[3] With Tier 4 luck denominator changes from 64 to 52 as Molten glass, Raw lobster and Flax are removed from drop table.

  1. ^ Moves the drop up to the super rare table

Super rare table

The super rare table can only be accessed via the rare table, and contains the most valuable drops.

  1. ^ Requires tier 4 luck. 1/1280 after hitting the RDT. [7]
  2. ^ Indicates a failed 1/10 roll for Hazelmere's signet ring.
  3. ^ Indicates a roll for Hazelmere's signet ring without tier 4 luck.
  4. ^ Requires tier 4 luck. Rarer than the vecna skull.

Herb table

This is a secondary drop table within the rare drop table. Seemingly, specific monsters that have access to the rare drop table may access this table instead.

A free-to-play player that receives a roll on this table will receive either 5 coins, 1 grimy guam, or 1 grimy tarromin.

Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."
  8. ^ Mod Timbo. Whats with the new rdt nerf?. Reddit. 2017-03-28. "RDT is now a bonus drop instead of replacing one of your regular drops. As a result, the chance to roll RDT was reduced because it now drops on top of anything else you get. The better the tier of luck you have access, the better the loot you get from RDT (and you have a better chance to roll RDT with the right tier of luck for the monster too). There has been no nerfs to the actual loot that comes from RDT, you're just seeing it less frequently. That being said, now that the loot is rarer, I'm going to be reworking the RDT to be worth more going forward."*
