I got 15 ducks before it emptied. --Starwed 01:25, 29 June 2007 (CDT)

  • Same here, although I wasn't counting 15 looks right. You do also get the message "You wander around the farm for a while, but can't find any additional ducks to fight. Maybe some more will come out of hiding by tomorrow."

--Denarius 02:00, 29 June 2007 (CDT)

I got 15 too. I'm going to change the article.

--Davidmac 11:05, 30 June 2007 (CDT)

I got 5 both yesterday and today. Changed article. --Crawly2 05:35, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

I got 15 again today; I finished all quests as a frat warrior; perhaps that makes a difference? --Starwed 06:13, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

  • I also got 15, and finished the quest as a frat warrior. --Loudgrrl4 ever 10:45, 3 July 2007 (CDT) And again today. --Loudgrrl4 ever 02:11, 4 July 2007 (CDT)

My other character got 10 both yesterday and today. I'm told you don't need to actually finish the quest to get this area open, so I'm fresh out of ideas. It seems pretty obvious the options are 5-10-15, and it seems to be a fixed number per character/ascension. Both of my characters completed it as hippies. --Crawly2 08:20, 1 July 2007 (CDT)

Still getting the same amount of ducks each day - I think I can safely say the number if fixed per character/ascension, though I still have no idea what mechanism determines it. In other business, the counter is for how many ducks you *kill*, not how many ducks you *fight* - so a pickpocket loop is possible. Can someone confirm this? ----Crawly2 01:38, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

I was wondering about this, I'll go and check with a multi. (He's pre-war, but presumably it works the same.) --Starwed 15:31, 2 July 2007 (CDT)
Well, I can confirm you can get duct tapes by pickpocketing. That's probably how some people are making the high level duct tape items; the drop rate on them is really low. --Starwed 15:37, 2 July 2007 (CDT)
Yes, this seems to be a valid strategy. I'm pickpocketing rotund ducks, and I've gotten 5 duct tapes already; the yield would presumably be worse if I were going against other ducks, since the feathers would interfere with the tapes. --Starwed 16:26, 2 July 2007 (CDT)
Total haul: 8 duct tapes out of 143 adventures. That's very close to a 5% drop rate, which would make sense. (It also means that even someone with optimal item drop equip would have trouble getting more than 5-6 per day at the normal rate.) --Starwed 16:39, 2 July 2007 (CDT)
At level 39 (Ndugu), I received duct tapes as drops--never pickpocketed. Also, 15 turns (6-30), 5 turns (7-1), and 6 turns (7-2), 5 turns (7-3). --Spacini 17:28, 2 July 2007 (CDT)
Are you really, really sure about the 6 turns one? And are you sure that the 15 turns was post-war? You're the only person to have reported any variation: keep in mind that if you run away or get beaten up, it doesn't count towards the limit. --Starwed 17:22, 9 July 2007 (CDT)

I would bet that like the other side quests it depends on which side you beat it with. The post quest rewards for doing the side quests seem to be better for the side that its harder to do the side quest for (so frats for the farm). So it would make sense that you could adventure 5 times here if you didn't beat it, 10 times if beat as a hippy, and 15 times if beat as a frat. I beat it as a hippy and can adven here 10 times a day. can people confirm the other numbers?--Univector llama 15:44, 7 July 2007 (CDT)

  • I completed this quest as a hippy, and yet I'm consistantly gettting 15 ducks a day. I don't think it has to do with being a fratboy or a hippy during the sidequest. --Gulper 02:19, 16 July 2007 (EST)

Im also getting a consistent 10 turns (I beat the quest as a hippy). Dam the duct tape drop rates are low, with almost +500% drops i still dont get many per day.--Darkness 04:29, 10 July 2007 (CDT)

Duct tape

I buffed up my drop rate a bit, and still I'm only getting maybe 1 per day. is it possible that duct tape is not affected by drops but more a duct tape/per day thing?--Applejordan 15:19, 24 August 2007 (CDT)

I was getting only one duct tape drop per day, if that. Probably one drop every 2 or 3 days. A couple days ago I got a Jekyllin hide belt, and I have had 5 drops in the past 3 days (2 drops Wednesday, 1 Thursday, and 2 Friday). -- Duckyguy 13:47, 24 August 2007 (PST)

I've been buffing myself up to ~300% item drops and adventuring at the farm for the past couple of weeks. I used to get between 3 and 4 pieces of duct tape each day. Over the past 3 or 4 days, I've received only 1 piece total (today I got 0 pieces). I'm wondering if the drop rate has been significantly decreased...

--Lasthop 11:26, 24 October 2007 (CDT)

Update, I buffed my drops to 320% today, plus Disco Concentration for each fight, and I got 3 duct tapes in 11 turns.

drunk duck

As I noted here, I have not seen a single drunk duck during my item drop spading here. I encountered 1000+ of each other duck, but no drunk ducks. Approximately half the characters I used were hippy-victorious, the other half frat-victorious, so it's not simply a case of drunk ducks only appearing on one of the victory conditions. Can anybody verify that they have definitely encountered a drunk duck post-war? If so, please explain the conditions your character was in at the time (which side won the war, what other sidequests you completed for that side, what outfit you were wearing, etc).--Yiab 11:06, 1 March 2008 (CST)

I meat a drunk duck here and it was the post-war location!--Tyilo 11:50, 16 March 2008 (CDT)

I finished the quest and the war as a hippy and I get drunk ducks a lot. --Treefrog 20:37, 3 May 2008 (CDT)

ETA - they're mean drunk ducks, FWIW. --Treefrog 09:29, 4 May 2008 (CDT)
Huh, good point. I hadn't realized that drunk ducks and mean drunk ducks were different encounters. So...maybe only the mean ones show up post-war. I think that's all I've been seeing. --Flargen 13:07, 4 May 2008 (CDT)

I'm guessing this must have been some sort of bug that was soon after fixed. Or is this issue still ongoing for your characters, Yiab? All of my characters have been able to encounter drunk ducks here, including those who got the wossname (most completed the farm as a hippy). I've been using the butterfly shortcut pretty consistently. Were you using that to complete the quest? Had you actually completed the farm sidequest? --Flargen 20:46, 3 May 2008 (CDT)

A Reference Oversight

The McMillan part of the name should also recognize a reference to the Rock Hudson role of Police Commissioner Stewart McMillan in the TV movie "Once Upon A Dead Man" and in the TV Series "McMillan And Wife".
