I got the 3 keys with no problems at all on MP2 (1st time A1, 3rd time A2, 4th time A3 respectively) however either I'm doing something wrong or I have the worst luck in getting the plans in A4.
To date I have run:
So do I just have the worst luck?

Keep at it! Your luck can improve! but yeah it really is just RNG mate.

Lets turn that around ;)
At those runs he'd have a 4:1 (in his favour) chance of a plan dropping, so the odds shouldn't be stacked against him.
But yeah, worst luck ever :P

Thanks guys. Yeah as Infinite said I had a 4:1 chance on getting it so far. I guess I'll have to keep pushing for it and eventually it will drop.
At least I'm getting a lot better at surviving and killing elite packs as well as getting xp, gold and gems.

I have the plan 3 times not from act4 on mp3-5 but as I don't need 3 of them... I was going to just drop the ones i did not need... but you can not drop this item or sell it... so now it just takes up room in my stash.. will have to move them to a lvl banker chr... sad we can't share when with people players from the group you found them with.
1 run of MP0 (by accident) - 95% chance NOT to drop10 runs of MP1 - 90% chance NOT to drop12 runs of MP2 - 80% chance NOT to drop2 runs of MP3 - 70% chance NOT to dropSorry to say mate but the odds are stacked against you =(
Let's actually try the statistics on that.
Leaves roughly a 1/100 chance of him not getting it. Either you have really horrible luck, or those percentages aren't the real chance of getting it in the first place.
Then again, the proability that people with horrible luck for the plan (such as myself) report on this forum might be quite high.
Still, are those percentage real?
According to diablowiki , even at MP10 the drop is not guaranteed. Did someone experienced that?
From diablowiki (emphasis added):
Playing with the Monster Power system enabled will boost the odds of a key dropping, with a 10% bonus for each level of Monster Power, up to a 100% chance of the drop on Monster Power 10.
This applies to all keywardens, including Nekarat who drops the plan.
The thing to remember with key drop rates is that it applies to each run only - a 10% drop rate in MP1, does not necessarily mean that you will get the key 1 out of 10 runs. Only after having done a large number of runs will you find the ratio of key drops to keyless runs approaching 10%. So be patient at lower MP and don't despair because it will work out in the long run.
