RNG is a bad girl today

Act 2 keywarden. MP4. Ran 6 times today. Zero keys. :(

Random Number Generator, why are you so coy?

On the 10th run at MP4, it finally dropped. Good gravy.

3 Mp5 + 1 Mp2 Act 2 run and that jerk won't give me anything. He also manages to always hide in the last spot I reach. God I hate act 2.

I also ran into a triple elite pack during this while nice for collecting stacks is wtf.

Open a program, run a random real number between 0 and 1, multiply the randomly generated number by 10 and round up, and then spank her that many times because she deserves it.

Interesting, I run it on mp8 for keys and always get a key. What an odd occurrence.

It's the "spawn warden only when there is one patch of unexplored area left" feature, designed to make you waste maximum time searching.

Contrary to your experience, my luck with RNG has gone up! Every time I run Act III, I go and check for the Caverns of Frost for a Gibbering Gemstone, and I can’t tell you how many runs I did this before I finally got one last night.

Well, done about 12 times on MP4, Act 4, no plans yet...

The other keys dropped quickly for me tho... What makes it tough in Act 4 is that the concentration of Elite/Champs only start on Silver Spire Level 1. It's really difficult to get 5 NV before entering Silver Spire Level 1.

I usually have to pray Nekarat is not right next to the waypoint and for me is also usually accompanied with 1 or 2 other elites. His ring of fire damage is very 'ouchy' LOL

But I take solace in the fact that once I get the plans, I just need to farm the keys where getting a 5 NV stack is so much easier! :)

13th time now... cyaz! :)

Had the oddest experience yesterday with key runs.

Only playing on MP2.

Ran Act 1 three times. Dropped three keys.
Ran Act 2 two times. Dropped two keys.

Act 2 two more times, no dice. But still, 5 times in a row at Mp2 and I was beginning to head scratch.

Such is RNG.
