You need to up the monster power as high as possible if you r hunting keys.

There's less than a 1/1000000 (as in, 1 in 1 billion) chance of 46 key runs at MP3 and no key. You're doing something wrong. Get 5 stacks of NV on inferno, then kill the keywarden while you still have the stacks.


Congrats OP on getting the 1 in a billion.

Once again, Blizz can probably check my profile. See if I ever Regged a key. I havnt.


Lol at your gear and lol at your stupid posts. Keep in mind you have to be in inferno for it to drop the keys. Your probably still farming in hell by the looks of it. haha

... LOL!

You're doing something wrong. Wait, no... You're definitely doing EVERYTHING wrong.

400 hours and you're paragon 20? I've got 125 hours on my WD and I'm PARAGON 55... I also have the same amount of elite kills, in 1/4th the hours played.

Farming MP2, and you seriously expect to get key drops? I wouldn't even CONSIDER doing key runs under MP8... Even if you are under geared, its not like MP5-6 is unbearably difficult. These days, it costs like 500k gold to gear ANY class to be able to handle MP5-6... Farming on MP2 for keys is simply nonsense, and a total waste of time.

You need to learn how to farm efficiently before you come to the forums complaining about drops rates, or ANYTHING else for that matter... because you clearly are simply not doing it right. I'm not even trying to be elitist... just telling it how it is.

BS!
I've been tracking my record so far, I done 46 runs against keyward and no drop so far on MP3.

your telling me I've 30% drop chance and missed it 46 times? Come on blizz, don't lie to us.


Highly doubt it. I play on MP3 and I have less than 30 runs and I have 4 Infernal Machines and 2 D keys and 1 each H and T keys. I know what your saying is not technically impossible but HIGHLY unlikely.

BTW 3 runs of Act 4 on MP2 to get the Infernal Machine plans.

Random numbers can be killer. I actually have a fair number of keys. No luck so far on getting the plans though. Eventually, even on MP0 they should drop, and in the mean time, just working along on my paragon levels. Shrug.

Thats not my profile, check the EU section- there is my real account

http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/bumbibjorn-2487/

here it is, Blizz can you please check my information to see that im not lying? that I have never gotten a key.

26.000 elite kills and look at my crappy lame !@# gear, with no key drops O_o

1/1000000 is 1 in 1 million; but yeah the dude's probably been doing runs in Normal, lol.

mp1 = 15% (5% + 10%)
mp2 = 25% (5% + 10% + 10%)


I have no idea where in the world did people get this info. from. It's just a lame myth.

As other players have noted, the drop rate of keys and the plans is 5% on MP0, 10% on MP1, and 20% on MP2, all the way up through a 100% drop rate on MP10.

Thanks you for confirmation. Now I won't feel I have very bad luck everytime I don't see key from keywarden.

what do you think I have had everytime? check my profile, check how many elites and mobs I killed.
Oh this is the USA section, sorry, my profile is messed up here - thats not mine heroes! check the EU section!


just saying but your gear makes it look as if you use 1. a main account, the link you posted, 2. a botting account, This 1 that comes up. botting is against the TOS and you should be banned.

That's why "blues" shouldn't respond at all to threads requesting a "blue" response. It simply breeds bad forum behavior like the OP. Suddenly, everyone posts "blue plz respond" for things that have either already stated or don't need to be stated.

But I suppose it's the mob mentality at this point. Everyone wants to pray to a "blue" to get a personalized answer in their lives.

Maybe blues aren't allowed to freely answer or don't have the answer to every question or query posted on this forum?

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me 46 times . . .

... you can't get fooled again. It's a... Tennessee thing. In Texas.

If you flip a coin it has a 50% chance of landing on one side. Flip it again and its still a 50% chance of landing on that same side, the previous flip does not count. If you flip the coin thousand's of times you will find that you get a run of it landing on the same side many times in a row despite the 50% chance.

I have seen runs of 20+ of the coin landing on the same side (computer simulated) while learning about something called "standard deviation", so if I don't get a key at MP 5 several times in a row i don't put my tin foil hat on. Some math wizard can correct me if I am wrong but the lower the % chance, the longer the run of not getting the key is (higher standard deviation).

If the keys aren't dropping on the MP your playing the organs probably wont drop either.

This is unlucky but not surprising at all.
