    Default Drop rate statistics - let's party!


    Been a long time since we did these.
    The purpose of this round will be to find out how drop rate works in parties.
    However, we need as much data as possible for all configurations, in order to establish the baseline and individual multipliers, so don't refrain from posting just because, "I'm just running solo with my Big Spider, nothing interesting about that." All data is useful.

    For parties, we want
    - normal party runs (2+ people going in and everyone attacking)
    - mule party runs (2+ people going in, only one person attacking)
    - "forgotten" party runs (1+ people going in, but they're in a party with people outside the map. This can be accomplished by inviting someone who's outside to your existing or one-man party after you've gone into the map)

    General method:
    1. Run DIPQ and count how many Sweetheart Chocos and Lovely Valentine's Day Boxes you loot.
    2. Post, for each run:
    - Whether you are in Reboot or not.
    - How many people in the party, which ones are in the map, and which ones are attacking.
    - Detailed list of drop enhancements of each person in the party (i.e. don't just say "I have 240% drop" but break it down to familiar, buff, equips, inner ability, and skills. Part of the purpose of these tests is to tell how all those things combine).
    - How many Sweetheart Chocos and Valentine's Boxes each person in the party looted.

    Details:
    1. Take care to loot all chocos
    2. Don't count the bonus stage.
    3. If the horse in stage 2 spawns mobs, either deduct the items they drop (if you can) or don't post data for the run.
    4. If you throw up due to a combo orb, don't post your Sweetheart Choco data for that run.
    5. Make a single post in this thread, and edit it every day with new data, rather than adding more replies.

    Thank you, and let's get this party started!

    Let me know what kind of data you'd prefer, @SaptaZapta, I have two characters with a good amount of drop rate as well as two computers and multiple accounts, so there's quite a large amount of possibilities. I probably won't be able to start for a few days though, been busy with moving over some files from my old computer to the new one so I haven't been playing.

    Character 1: 165% drop rate, 65% tradeable, not counting 20% equip drop rate from greed pendant, 15% drop rate from IA, Wolf familiar (100%)

    Character 2: 170% drop rate, 50% tradeable (or 165% drop rate and 50% tradeable, same as above), not counting 20% equip drop rate from greed pendant, no drop rate from IA, Spider/Pig familiar, 10% drop rate from Showdown*

    *This character is a phantom though, and killing with showdown will result in some cards flying out and killing other mobs and not applying the 10% drop from showdown. How much this matters in the big picture is debatable, though, but I'm noting it regardless. A SP reset coupon to reset carte noire while running these tests is also an option, but honestly it's too much of an hassle to reset the SP everytime to do these tests and then having to re-assign later. :c

    @Aeraxis, since you have two computers and characters with high drop rate, I think the most useful tests you could do will be:

    1. Do some solo runs on Character 1
    2. Do some solo runs on a character with no drop buffs from another account (we'll call it character 3).
    3. Do party runs of characters 1+3, where 1 is leader and does all the killing.
    4. Do party runs of characters 1+3, where 3 is leader but 1 does all the killing.
    5. Do party runs of characters 1+3, where 3 is leader and does all the killing.
    6. Do runs where 1 goes in alone, then parties 3 who is waiting outside.

    I believe this will cover the biggest issues people have been raising doubts about: whether party drop rate goes by party leader, or by attacker, or an average of all party members regardless; and whether partying someone outside the map has any effect.

    As to how many runs with each configuration: the more, the better. I would say at least 10 (so, 2 days, assuming no runs get ruined by choco frenzy or other causes) of each type.

    Also, if you have an overabundance of spare time, try doing all of the above with characters 2 and 4 (some other no-drop-buff mule). Don't reset your SP. Can you avoid using Showdown? If not, then we'll just have to deal with its partial effect.

    Thanks in advance for any testing you are able to do.

  6. Default Re: Drop rate statistics - let's party!


    Alright, I'll start doing the tests in a few days, most likely. Another thing to note is that Character 1 and Character 2 are also on different accounts, so a combination of Char 1 + Char 2 is also possible, though that may not be wanted since the drop rate difference between them is not as large as with 1/2 and a character with no drop gear.

    I'll get back to you with results as soon as possible, and there's one thing that I'd like to request but if you don't want to, it's perfectly understandable.

    If you use discord, could you add me and remind me to do the tests each day? Or else I'm afraid on some days I'm just going to skip simply due to sheer laziness or forgetting .:c

    I'll PM you with the details if you agree, and if not, I'll just try my best to remember.

    Sorry, I don't have Discord.
    Try putting a reminder in your phone or something?

    And yes, a run with characters 1 and 2 is probably not going to tell us much because there is little difference between them. Might be worth it to try, just to make sure nothing absurd happens like drops rates adding up or even multiplying, but that's really unlikely and probaly not worth wasting runs on.

    Conclusion from doing it with 2 man party:
    Drop rate of everyone currently in the map is set to the person (if he is present) that created the party. (Very noticeable in Muto PQ)
    Changing party leader do not change the drop rate.
    If the person that created the party is not present in the map, then the killer own drop rate is applied.
    If the party creator leave the party, the killer own drop rate is applied.
    If the party creator leave the party and rejoin it, the party creator drop rate is applied. (Even if the party creator leave party to change map or change channel (like to enter a bounty portal/ wolf))
    Some bosses follow a different drop rule, killer drop rate is applied to shared loot regardless of who created the party.

    What isn't tested yet:
    3 or more people in a party

    Data contributed by user "jeffim" on /r/MapleStory:
    Original post: https://www.reddit.com/r/Maplestory/...ibute/ddxbely/

    Instead of mentioning the drop rates each time, I'm just going to mention the characters and it should be tacitly assumed that this is the drop % configuration that's being used at any point they're mentioned.
    Characters (all on Reboot)
    jeffim (BM): 233% drop (253% drop for equips - just mentioning this so you know I'm not including greed pendant as a part of my drop % here)
    CustomShop (Kanna): 0% drop
    OrangeHeki (Beast Tamer): 0% drop from equps, 19% drop from BT buff
    Manipuiator (NL): 80% drop
    Wurmk (Kanna): 20% drop
    Boldface indicates who is party leader.

    Feb. 18: jeffim attacking with Big Spider familiar

    pomegranate. Accidentally overwrote this info. I'll redo this later and also create a separate file with all of this data right now. Conclusion is that BT buff is overridden by HS.

    Wurmk created party
    Choco: 180, 157, 147, 183
    Boxes: 24, 27, 33, 36

    Independent sources pointing to the conclusion that LW, Easter Buff, and 2x Drop Event is not 2x drop: base (top-left corner) and LW (top-left corner again). LW, Easter Buff, and 2x Drop Event seem to give the same drop rate. It seems like when there are other buffs present (e.g. big spider), the 2x event gives the full 2x drop amount.
    Big Spider applies a 1.4x multiplier
    LW, 2x drop, 2x event (in isolation of drop buffs) applies significantly less than a 2x multiplier.
    I'm not confident in saying exactly what values these multipliers have.

    First of all, I'd like to thank Rexaar and jeffim for all their hard work collecting data with two characters in various situations.
    Second, I must apologize for taking so long to write this summing-up post.

    So, what have we learned?

    Unfortunately, we do not have enough data points in any one configuration to draw quantitative conclusions about specific drop buffs, as we did in previous tests. It appears (from jeffim's data) that Lucky Winter and 2x coupons either do not truly double drop rate, or are not fully multiplicative with drop rate on equipment or inner ability for whatever reason. But the data points are too few to be conclusive.
    Other than that, we do not see any data that contradicts what we already know.

    However, because of the very high drop rate difference between party members in both Rexaar's and jeffim's tests, we do have enough information to draw conclusions regarding drop rate in parties. At least parties of two people.

    For normal mobbing:

    Drop rate of all party members in the same map is set to the drop rate of the character that created the party, as long as they are in the party and in the map. Changing party leader, or having the creator leave (for example to go to wolf/bounty portal) and rejoin, doesn't change the party's drop rate.

    If the party creator is not in the party or not in the map, their drop rate no longer applies. Since we only checked 2-person parties, we do not know whether each character's own drop rate applies to their kills, or the party leader's (if not the creator), or some kind of average between present members.

    For bossing:

    Some bosses follow a different drop rule: killer drop rate is applied to shared loot regardless of who created the party.
    Tested bosses where killer drop rate applies: Hilla and Zakum.
    Tested bosses where party creator drop rate applies: Ranmaru, Krexel, Kacchuu Musha

    It is possible that the difference is KMS vs. non-KMS bosses, but this requires more testing.

    Things that still need testing:

    1. Party creator changing drop rate after party creation - does new rate apply to just the creator, everyone, or no-one?
    2. Parties of 3 or more people - what happens when the party creator is not present?
    3. More bossing:
    - What happens with the drops of "killer drop rate" bosses when more than one character damages the boss?
    - Which bosses follow which rule (and why?)
    - Do instanced drops always go by the drop rate of the person they're meant for?


    Thanks, again, to all who participated.
