Diablo® III

Key Drop Rate

My Barb is pretty lucky... I usually do MP3 runs and 3-5 runs I got a Key in different Acts.

I'm experiencing very similar problems. whats the point of playing on a higher mp when there is no change in key drops.

You're stupid.

At last the plans. Chuckle. Keys were not too bad, but I really had to hammer on the Key Warden in Act 4 to get those plans. Had a nice run of legendary drops and while the RND was hot, I tried again, and ping! Got one. Glad I only need to get it once, that is the most rare drop I have seen. But on the other hand, it was a good run of EXP farming that beast to run up my Paragon levels.

essentially statistically impossible


Essentially statistically impossible !== impossible.

Essentially statistically impossible === improbable === possible.

Having said that, I wish that RNG would include factors like the number of failed attempts and the time since the last success. That would stop dry spells from happening, but that's not in Blizzard's best interests.

Definitely seems like something changed the "rng." I'm used to seeing key drops most of the time with mp6. I haven't found one today.

Since everything is so cohesive in this game, I wouldn't be surprised that a minor change in the UI menu changed the "rng" throughout the game.

Fanboi's excuse: It's "rng" bro

Rng is very well, but now at 11 runs at MP5 for act 3 key and no drop. And yes, 5 stacks before kill.

Try and get heads 11 times in a row flipping a coin!

Kinda discouraging

Drop rate for keys is ridiculously bad for this new patch...

I used to run for keys with MP3 or 4 and got some good results. Lately though, act 2 key has been almost a "no drop", but I thought it was just my luck "back to normal". Not so sure right now...

I got 3 keys in 4 runs in MP4 over the weekend. I didn't have the plan either and it took me another 2 runs to get that.

all in all, 6 runs and I have 1 brand-spanking new infernal machine.

Ceilings... Blizz. They are your friend. Use them. They want you to. They are calling you.

Do you guys have any idea how many complaints would just go away if you coded them in?

Since there's no such thing as a true RNG in computers, all these "cold streaks" are probably due to poor programming of the 'RNG' that Blizzard is using here. Strange circumstances could be conspiring to defeat the "randomness" here and Blizzard wouldn't even know it.

key farming with 70% chance mean that 1 out of 7 runs u should get one key so geting 2 keys in 20 sounds about right
