This talk page is for discussing the Maple shortbow (u) page.

Untitled[edit source]

I tried adding drop rates for materials but a guy keeps deleting them. Well, here they are for anyone that needs them:

Some preliminary results (~5k items disassembled) indicate the "drop chance" for the materials:

For each 100 maple shortbows (u) disassembled, you'll get about 289 junk, 38 stave, 34 tensile and 34 flexible parts, and 2-3 each of the components. That means you need to disassemble 35-50 bows for each component and 2.6-3 for each part.

5k are, of course, enough for a sample.

I won't bother adding my stats for drop rates for any other item, I'll keep them to myself.

(So much for "Help needed for invention"...)

I mean, to be fair, the linked info was very clear about what info we needed exactly. Second, material chances are very likely based on category. So if you only keep track of what's after junk, you can get a more universal sample. Which is why it's not very helpful to post 1 sample of 1 item. Maybe if you quit sulking because of one little "oh no", you could buck up and help do more generalized sampling. MolMan 19:27, February 17, 2016 (UTC)

First of all, watch your attitude.
Second, data is needed for many items. Others must contribute so we can share data and reach conclusions. Someone has to start.
And, more important of all, respect other ppl's effort. Just because it is not yours, it doesn't mean its unimportant.

Be more open to criticism (because a sample of 5k for 1 junk chance is too narrow a scope and relatively small)
Don't sulk because things don't go perfectly your way.
Maybe instead of just giving up, try to discuss and come up with ways to make your data useful.
And who said it wasn't useful? It just doesn't belong on the article. It belongs in either your userspace or here, where it can be analysed and discussed before it's presented. MolMan 19:39, February 17, 2016 (UTC)
