    Impossible there is no way you have used full stamina 98.9 times, it hasn't been here that many days. BE HONEST!!!

    I'm currently on run 26, myself. Horror stories like this concern me.
    Well, if you're doubtful, it's easy enough to prove. Ask him to show a picture of his Sands and Canvases. Even if IDK dropped the minimum each time, one of them will be at 999, and the other probably will be too. If not, they'll both be damn close.

    Sands and Canvas are 999.

    And unfortunately, I promise you... I used that much energy.

    FWIW the xp bonus applies to the entire group so one is all you need. I spent about 30ish energy on stamina getting mine, and was around 500 sand & canvas at the end. Totally worth it if you've got nothing else to do.

    That's crazy... do you have nothing else to do in the game? That would make me quit right there. By chance did you evolve a pdk. Tharos said you can only have 1.

    Why are you in such a hurry to get it? There's nothing new to do until the the next patch. I hope you're at least leveling your units while doing this.

    that is 5.8 percent, dont worry a lot of people will be with you (well not that fast, but still).

    Yeah, and by the time he will have it he will no longer need it because all its unit will be maxed !

    Haha, well we have the prime example of why drop-rate reduction especially in mobile games does not necessarily increase the life of content. One can buy stamina and go at it until he/she is finished.Good job @Animus716 , I must admit that even after 282 runs you only had 94.2% chance of getting the dragon. :D Seems like a stupid design decision from MW... I mean I got it at 4th try and some have to go for 282. I would still not use energy on this dungeon...

    Ah yes, but if you buy stamina/energy, you're directly giving MW money, which I'm sure they're just as happy with! ;)

    That's some clever and justified statement.
    Can you elaborate and give more information eventually ?

    Thank you for your sarcasm. I guess my sarcasm must have backfired on me hahahah...

    To elaborate, this can actually make up quite a good probability question for some students. One thing pretty much all of you guys here on this forum forgets to take account into is the fact that that 1% should be factored in, and only once. Have said that, you can't just do the old trick of 1 minus the complement, with the complement being .99 to the whatever power.

    We can discuss more on this. There is a special mathematical term for this, but I will let you and others figure that out.

    Does this sound clever, does this sound justified hahaha

    Please do discuss more, because it just seems like you're saying people are wrong and you don't know why. This is a pretty simple one-variable problem so if you're practicing "higher analytics p", I'd say this should be a 1 minute problem for you.

    Lol you must have caught me while I was editing... I don't know what you meant by one variable. But this is indeed a pretty simply question to me; wasn't even gonna bother to think too seriously for a mere game until the frustration kicked in for not getting the Otomo alongside with someone's comment, and that made me think, wait a second, that's not how you're supposed to calculate that! Lollll

    So how would you approach this, I will point out anything that's wrong and the reason for that.

    The math we've been using had been explained to you in another post. http://terrabattleforum.com/threads...ing-early-info-dump.10882/page-11#post-115900
    Probability of drop in X runs = 1- Probabilty of no drop in X runs
    Probability of no drop in X runs = 0.99^X
    This is the same formula I would use. Don't tell us what's wrong here, just show us the right way to do it.
