## Torch probability for each class

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.

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.

Probably why calculation-phobic Geometry textbooks use 22/7 as an approximation of pi.

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

That's actually what I typed first, but then I realized he said over 10 runs and he had 11 torches listed.
