    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. :p

    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.

    [​IMG]

    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. :(

    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 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).

    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 :p

    ... under 4% chance of that happening. Statistics loves me again :banghead:

    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 :p).

    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. :banghead:
    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! :banghead:

    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.
