Something in the ~1,000 range would be a high enough to be statistically significant, and 5,000 would be ideal. For those numbers, we’d need a fleet of Hackers with identical Luck pwning the same forum over and over.

Which is why I recommend Andys from how stuff breaks, 240 drops are easy to get there and the high percentile will make any changes more visible. It may not be 100% accurate, but it’s reasonable to actually try for a variety of Luck ranges. But noone wants to do that in general. However hacked alts aren’t exactly doing much if people are willing to spare those for some quick stats.

I’ll do those runs, but only once Domination for this week ends. Will you sacrifice one of your alts to determine how many upgrade points can be allocated into Defense at Level 35? The Wiki claimed 32 Levels for Upkeep, but I’m already at 40 something so it’s clearly not right for that case, and might be different for Defense as well.

I ask because I need a deviation for how many points wide I need to make the intervals.

Offense and Defense you can throw in all 175 Points if you really feel like it and get them to level 61. Upkeep becomes fairly insignificant to boost once you get it to level 20 or so. Around there you can go for a month and only drop a few %, even on a Permanoob.

Now that the distraction of Domination is over, I’ll get to working on this starting next Rollover.

I’m going to attempt to fulfill all three objectives (Defense, Upkeep, Luck) at once. How I’ll evaluate Upkeep is count up the amount of damage I take in a single forum run, repair, then measure it again with +1 Upkeep. Defense I plan to increase a single point per 1,000 hits for stat significance; for a Re-Re with a lot of HP and very little offensive strength, that should be fairly easy with a forum like HowStuffBreaks. Naturally, this would mean I’ll get the Upkeep data pretty quickly compared with the Defense.

Luck I will evaluate at 1 Luck, 5 Luck and 10 Luck after several runs. I need to prepare for next week’s Domination starting Sunday, so it’ll have to be only 12 forums worth of runs. Should work out in the end.

Have to add a few things from tubmails but otherwise I added in a metric ****ton of stuff since I’ve been using the test server to grind a lot of Forums. I should have all of the files that can be found except for in PUA since it has such terrible drop rates for anything and I can’t bring myself to care enough for stuff that has less than .1% drop rates.

Also totaled up all the drops I’ve got and apparently I’ve recorded 73068 drops. This makes me sad Log in to see images!

Make a greasemonkey script and we can have the exact numbers for everything spaded in a week or so.

Then make a contest for it.

Heck, if you don’t have the BP for it then just ask and people will chip in.

livinskull has a .moar collector and has mentioned wanting to try to get it to pile up in some offsite manner, but to get it to find your Luck as you pwn as well wouldn’t work I don’t think and as such people would have to somehow input it themselves and not forget thus ruining the numbers. And even his program has hiccups on lil Pony Groomers and when you change Forums.

If anyone is up to the challenge go right ahead, but I don’t think most people really care enough about these drop stats to start chipping in the money it would take to make that script worth the effort Log in to see images!

Finding their luck is simple – just pull it from the /me page when the player navigates away from it, and have the script block itself from running if it hasn’t seen the /me page that session.

Changing forums shouldn’t be an issue since the URL changes when you switch between them. Not a big deal.

For the 2 other people who care Log in to see images!

According to the podcast, they’re likely going to bounce around community Forums difficulties (and drops) as well as nuke some of them so I’m not going to care a whole lot about keeping updated in drop stats other than Episode 2 stats (And any stats anyone TM’s me about hunting down) which I think will be staying the same.
