Just wondering...

Does torch for each class have the same drop probability? I've done over 10 runs and here is what I got:

1 bar
1 sor
1 pal
3 zon
2 necro
3 druid

Afaik yeah, why would it be any different? It's just a torchdrop, and it gets a random (equal chance) class.

3 druid And for 10 runs, this is well within the expected even distribution. What, were you expecting exactly 1.571428... of each torch? Do 100 runs and check your numbers again.

Hm, pi/2 = 1,5707963267948966192313216916398

Coincidence? :scratch:

I think sorceress and paladin torches seem to be dropped less because there are more sorceress' and paladin builds than any other type, therefore making a higher demand for them.

With how many torches are found daily (I'm sure it's in the hundreds) it would be very intriguing to see if the actual %'s evened out for each type of torch.

i'm gonna stay out of this particular mathematical discussion ;-)

I think you meant 1.428571... :P
