I see. Observation bias. Dual pincer has no effect on item drop rates.
Looks like every single person who needs a specific ore just gets everything except said ores.
I can relate. I think I ran Pudding Time approximately 25 times before I finally managed to get the one last Animaton I needed to promote Amina's second job. Had multiple runs where I got multiple copies of pretty much every other ore...
Although, that being said, I recently pulled a good number of S and SS units lately (2 SS, 2 S out of 9 pulls) and now I actually have a use for all the Dark Matter, Oxcesium, and Orichalcum that I got.
Now, my main problem is having to get Excalibur two times for Sheena and Gugba, and Gae Bolg for Piz'fer. And I've got Gungnir lying around, but I can't use it...
My first 100% SB.
I pulled Yukken last week, and after getting her up to level, gave the whole capturing strategy a try. Even with Negotiator Pro and typically dual pincering the boss (85%-ish capture rate), it still took me about 2 days to do the 21 captures required for 100% SB.
Anyways, I mainly wanted to do it so I could use him in the Chaos fights.
Huzzah. One Excalibur gained and Gugba promoted to third job (one step closer to that legendary Power Point Amp + Tremor combo). After like...15 runs. Not too bad, if the published drop rates are accurate.
Now to get another one...

I can't get the new item from 21-7 or 26-5. Two days of grinding and I have one helix to show for it.
make sure to do it on bonus days and try to get the help of someone with the treasure hunter skill.
I have had 8 consecutive runs of level 3 tin parade where I've gotten 1 or more of each particle or tear EXCEPT SPIRIT PARTICLES. AKA THE ONLY ONE I NEED.
Like, I need one. ONE. UNO. UN.
I got Lich and Mediscanner to 100%SB. Megacell too. Good thing I have Yukken ^ and Samatha ^ .
I ran 26-5/31-1 30+ times. I'm starting to think deepwater helix is just a myth.
Syla, if you need to borrow some TH's, I've got all 3 of them (see my thread link in sig).
12 straight runs on metal zone 4 and not one A metal minion. Damn you, RNG!
You're not alone. I've done 9 and got a king version, but still no ^ minion either.
Normal MZ4 has only 15% chance of giving a MM^, so chance to not get one after 12 runs is around 14% - still quite high.
Double each of my counts...
18 runs, 2 kings, still ZERO ^ minions
... under 4% chance of that happening. Statistics loves me again
13 straight runs on 19-10 with double drop day and Gatz... still no apollo! Should have dropped after about 3 or 4 runs... wtf? Did MW change where it drops?!? I need to start leveling Rikken Job 3 already!
You can borrow my Alika ^ if you want @Ashitaka... I know what it's like to have a near-guaranteed drop rate and miss it (ran level 2 Baha with all 3 THs (87.5% drop) and still missed it ).
20 total runs of 19-10 (with double drop and gatz) to get the apollo to drop. Not sure exactly how unlikely that is, but it took more than 5 times as long as it statically should have -_-
Thanks for the offer, @Tuo. At a certain point, I just became more interested in how long it could possibly take! *_*
10th run on bahamut ultra. I killed most of suzaku with a double neg pro activation, and still no drop.
Worst thing is that my yukken is too low level to be still alive to help me drop bahamut at the end of the battle!
Do Bahamut Evolved instead of Ultra! It has a WAY better chance of dropping Sazuka, and it should be easier to keep your Yukken alive. It doesn't drop Bahamut, but you should only need to run it a couple times with a neg pro.
