Items from Monsters

[ Return to Game Mechanics ]

Here's a not so comprehensive list of everything in the game that increases the item drop rate from monsters, excepting familiars, which are comprehensively listed at familiars by type. To see various maximum levels of item drops, see Maximizing Your Item Drops.

Increased drop rates are treated as a multiplier to the base drop rate. If you have multiple item drop rate increases, the percentages are added together to arrive at a multiplier. For example, if a player has a 20 lb. Baby Gravy Fairy (50%), Mad Looting Skillz (20%), and a Mr. Accessory Jr. (25%), then the item drop multiplier will be 50% + 20% + 25% = 95%. To find your final drop rate, the game computes the "final drop rate" as

 (base drop rate) * (1 + drop bonus percent / 100)

When you finish off a monster the game rolls a uniform random number between 0 and 1. If the number it rolls is less than the final drop rate, you get the item. So, in this example let's say we are farming for stars which have a base drop rate of 30%. Using the equipment above your final drop rate would be

 30% * (1 + 0.95) = 58.5%

When farming for more common items, a high multiplier may push the drop rate above 100%. This is just treated as 100%. Note additionally that some items only drop if certain conditions are fulfilled.

Finally, an item with a 100% base drop rate will always drop, even if you reduce your drop multiplier to a negative value.

PlasticLobster has created a tool in which you can enter a certain item's base drop rate, and the tool will both display how much +item% is required to cap the drop and the % chance of the item dropping at other levels of +item%.

Jick gives a brief explanation of drop mechanics in the KoL forums. (The actual roll used in the game is at the 0.01% level.)

Here is a table with further examples:

30% 120% 36% 66% Now we should be getting the item an average of two out of three adventures.
50% 120% 60% 100% Drops are capped at 100%, at which point the item will be obtained on every adventure.
100% -50% -50% 100% A 100% drop will always drop.
50% -100% -50% 0% Only 100% drops will drop if the total drop rate is nonpositive.
100% -100% -100% 100% A 100% drop will always drop.


Item Drop Boosters

The table below lists all confirmed sources except for familiars. Extra item drops from familiars are listed at the end of the article.

Items that are marked as food drops increase both the chance of cooking ingredients as well as edible items.

Familiars

There are a number of familiars that increase item gains during combat. As a familiar's weight increases, the increase in item gains also increases. The maximum base weight a familiar can attain is normally 20 pounds, but the effective weight can be greatly increased with equipment and effects.

The Maximizing Your Familiar Weight article shows which gear and effects will boost your familiar's effective weight. The Familiar Weight article shows how to increase your familiar's base weight more quickly.
