Guide[edit source]

It's a minor thing, but you don't need to link pages so many times when they're in the text. Nice guide otherwise. MolMan 14:31, July 19, 2015 (UTC)

I don't know how exactly you're getting 1/150, but that would mean individual legs have a drop rate of 1/50. Having talked to many people with thousands of kills and having over 1,000 myself, I don't think I can accept that as the number on the guide. The drop rate is definitely in the 1/30–1/40 area, and I'd really like it to be kept as such. MolMan 22:25, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
I don't see any reason to believe that the pheromone update changed the drop rate of legs. Both from my personal experience and those of others. MolMan 22:44, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
Like I am seriously outright rejecting the notion that they decreased the drop rate. If the drop rate were lowered, we'd have seen a decrease in legs coming into the game, and thus a significant rise in prices continuing even after its ge price finally caught up (it continued to rise until it was around 200m, but then it started dropping again). This is really only explained by continued farming, and with the hype from the pheromone probably gone by then, it was the same people continuing. I've never heard the suggestion that leg rates were nerfed when the pheromones were released, so unless you can provide verifiable proof from some developer saying otherwise, I'm going to reject the idea completely. I've personally experienced the average drop rate almost spot on, with 1044 kills and 10 legs made (that's 1/34.8). With half of my kills before that update and the rest after, surely I would have noticed such a drastic change in drop rate. MolMan 22:58, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
Regardless of whether it was nerfed or not, forget about it, the fact stays that the drop rate is much closer to 1/50 than 1/35 and i provided as much as 3 links to a decent count of kills which you seem to completelly ignore. And just because you got lucky on your legs does not mean that everybody gets their leg 1/35... Menex (talk) 23:05, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
Provides an ongoing collection of data. It has both pre and post counter data, with most numbers still pointing towards 1/35. And no, I haven't gotten lucky. I'd say, again, that my drop rate remained perfectly average. MolMan 23:08, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
Fair enough, now that you actually showed some data, i will have to agree and keep it 1/35 then. I will edit all of the bits in a sec. Menex (talk) 23:13, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
