Sirenic scales and Death's Swiftness[edit source]

Does anyone know the drop rate of sirenic scales here? They should be added to the money calculation. Also, now that Death's Swiftness has been buffed, the kills per hour should be increased. Logialian (talk) 05:55, October 25, 2013 (UTC)

Drop rate[edit source]

Jagex seems to have tweaked the drop rate on keystones at some point in late Dec 2014 / early Jan 2015, which is what is driving the price hike in keystone prices. Before the tweak, I was previously getting the average 7 keystones per hour this guide was previously based on but since the tweak, I've averaged 5 per hour over a 10+ hour period. I realize though that 10 hours isn't a large amount of time so if anybody else has a larger amount of data (not including data before Dec 2014) feel free to update with more exact numbers. 20:50, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

I'm also not sure if the rate for sirenic scales / alchables was tweaked as well (or even for that matter how the 900,000 number for alchables was derived), those may have decreased as well. 20:53, January 10, 2015 (UTC)
I have no clue about the correctness of the numbers, but your changes were likely reverted because you only changed the Output variables. Anyone looking at the guide sees "0.83" now, while the description below the numbers still says that 7 keystones are received per hour on average. Those numbers do not match up, so the user 'corrected' the numbers in the formula. When updating money making guides, please take care to update everything, and not just a subset.

Oops, my bad, fixed. Also is there a reason no hard numbers are given for the other drops? Sirenic scales aren't even mentioned at all in the description, and the high level alch drops just basically says which items to alch not how many you'll get. It would be nice to see at least (for example) "sirenic scales drop apx. 1/1800 so at 450 kills/hr the expected number of scales is 0.25 per hour."  Looking at the page history it seems the target kill count per hour was increased at some point with the assumption of collecting fewer alch drops but the sirenic scale count and alch totals never changed. 03:24, January 15, 2015 (UTC)
Your best bet might be asking that to the creator of the page, User:Cook Me Plox. I wouldn't know, I'm afraid. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 05:20, January 15, 2015 (UTC)
