Maximizing Your Meat Drops

[ Return to Dressing For Success ]

All players find themselves at some time requiring more Meat. Whether it is to buy that last skill you need, or to save up for that Ultra-Rare you've always wanted, you'll have to be dressed appropriately.

Note that purchasing all the item buffs below is not necessarily cost-efficient, as the resulting drop bonus may not cover the cost of the buffs. It may be more useful for a Meat farmer to read Basic Farming or Advanced Farming instead.

For a complete list of everything which will affect the amount of Meat dropped by monsters, see Meat from Monsters.

Farming for Meat with a NPZR

A NPZR has an 11% chance to give [(6 × weight) + 10] meat, per combat round, in the first 10 rounds of any fight.
It also has an 11% chance to deal (weight × 3/2) damage, per combat round.

The 10 round cap has effectively ended the NPZR's reign as meat-farming familiar of choice. The following information is left as an archive of past functionality, rather than a useful modern guide.

Example - Farming the Castle in the Sky

Possibly, the best area for NPZR meat farming would be the The Castle in the Clouds in the Sky, because the base meat drop is added to the meat given by the NPZR. Of course, the non-combat adventures decrease the efficiency, so increasing combat frequency is highly recommended.

All monsters at the Castle have 150 HP. Meat drop is 135-194 (avg: ~150) per monster. So, let's compare a 50-lb NPZR with a 50-lb Leprechaun. In 10 rounds of combat at 11% Chance of meat drop you get a meat drop 1.1 times/adventure. A full weight Stocking Mimic (assuming it's just a really heavy cocoabo) you have a 1/12 chance of getting meat meaning you get 5/6 of a drop per fight. If you do all the math, you will get:

  • 50-lb leprechaun = 448.35 meat (198.9% extra meat plus 150 from the end of combat)
  • 50-lb NPZR = 491 meat/adventure (310/drop which averages 341 meat plus the 150 you get from the end of combat)
  • 130-lb Stocking Mimic (100-lb plus the 30 bonus the others got) = 727 meat/adventure (693.2 per drop factoring in Happy Holidays, averaging out to 578 per actual fight, plus 150 from the end of combat)

Thus, a Stocking Mimic is better than a NPZR, which is better than a leprechaun at the castle.
