    Default Adressing Gold Loot

    Hey There ^^

    I saw alot of threads / people in game complain about getting low drops even with high gold loot recently , so i just wanna clarify somethings and hope make most of those people understand the mechanism of gold loot

    So technically from what i understand , even if u got the highest gold loot in the game , it still doesnt prevent u from getting low gold drops , ima explain this with booty gold drops as an example :

    From what i got from my experience in the event and from my friends and guildies the gold drop is between 500-3k with 0% gold loot , (i personnally have 600% gold loot so we'll take it as an example) and from the runs i did the gold droped with 600% was between 3K-18k .

    As u notice , the 600% gold loot increased the gold drop in an impressive way , but as u can see the lowest gold drop from 600% is equal to the highest gold drop with 0% , the key word here : is RNG

    The Idea I Wanna Clarify Is : Even if ur gold loot is VERY VERY HIGH , a few low drops are very very normal so theres no need to complain about gold loot , the same way u can get 3k from booty boss several times is the same odds u can get 18k from each booty boss , same thing applies to deep marsh and gates and every other gold loot bosses

    If i have a mistake in the way i explained this : Do point it out , we here to understand and learn together in a civil way ^^)

    P.S : Pets with gold loot whatever they are , timur , harry , regifter or whoever : They Dont Negate Ur Gold Drops

    Thank You And Have Fun ^^)

    So funny when someone that doesn't know something are going to clarify things for us. And after "clarifying" asking, if what I just did say aren't correct, please let me know.......

    Why are you clarifying something for us when you clearly doesn't know something? #facepalm

    Gold loot is not fixed. For any given boss or enemy, there is a range of gold that they can drop, and how much exactly they dropped is determined by RNG (a random number generator). For the sake of an example, let's say that a boss can drop between 10 and 100 gold. So on a good run without any gold loot applied, you get 100 gold. Let's say you decide to run with 500% gold loot. Any amount of gold that you receive from this boss is now 5x higher. The range is now 50-500. On a good run, you now net 500 gold. However, on a bad run, you still receive 50 gold, which is significantly lower than a high drop without gold loot.

    Gold loot comes down to luck. It's entirely possible that you may loot less gold over the course of ten runs while using no gold loot than with the 500% gold loot in this example. Does this mean that the gold loot is bad and that it is a secret way by which STS can screw you over? Probably not.

    Gold loot does not guarantee that you will loot more gold than you did on a high-end drop without it (unless you have a very high gold loot). It simply acts as a multiplier. Gold loot is subject to the RNG on your original drop, and this is why sometimes it feels as if it isn't doing its job.

    I don't mean to say basically the same thing as the original post, but I really hope that some repetition will be helpful in dispelling all the confusion surrounding this topic recently. Awesome post Argoub!

    A Dev should actually clarify this cause this just sounds like your personal opinion

    I started the explanation with : From what i understand ... And When i say "point if i made a mistake" : its to start conversations and opinions to gather informations and see what the others have to address about gold loot .. other than that i dont see myself saying im clarifying something i dont know

    I explained the way i believe and strongly think gold loot works on the game .. simple as that , id prefer sharing my thoughts and see if theres some wrong infos within it then keeping infos for my self while theres a chance they might be wrong infos .. i hope u see what i mean ... ty

    This is exactly what I meant too. Then it would be a clarification of this and not based on personal experiences and maybe/maybe informations.

    Well cant be sure until a dev can confirm , until then all we can do is share the ideas and see which ones are logical ^^)

    Would be really nice to get a confirmation from the devs about this tho !

    Well explained, "RNG" is a concept used in games with a loot table. Argoub explained his point really well.

    Problem is, people believe that devs could have maybe messed with it and "nerfed" it.
    This is all speculation ofc

    Only a dev can confirm if the system was tweaked to decrease the possibility of a person with X gold loot dropping the max amount of gold they can .

    When you say something to yourself enough, you might just start believing it.
    Nothing affects the gold you drop other than what you farm and with how much gold loot you farm

    Little example:

    Things that affect your gold drop
    - Gold loot percentage

    Things that DO NOT affect your gold drop
    - anything else imaginable

    Little reminder for everyone
