Arcane Formula Farming Data
About 2 months ago, I posted some data regarding farming runs I did for Arcane Formulas in Normal Mode. I recently finished doing the same with Epic and Legendary runs and decided to post the data. (see the posts below.)
I performed 100 runs on each of the bosses which seemed to have decent drop rates for formulas: the Telkines, Typhon, Hades, and the Secret Passage. I also included the Hydra in Legendary. I also tried two others (Olive Grove in Normal and Polyphemus in Legendary) that I did not include in the data because the drop rates were so low. My runs were done in the following manner:
-Used my DW Harbinger for the runs (Level 58-59 for Normal Runs, Level 66-69 for Epic/Legendary Runs)
-Started each set of runs from the nearest rebirth shrine.
-Bypassed the mobs leading up to the boss as often as possible and focussed on killing the boss only.
-Exited after every 10 runs to reset the seed so that the results represented an average of different seeds. (This also let me break things up into 20-30 minute sessions that I could do when I had time and felt like doing some runs.)
From the data, I would draw several conclusions:
-There are definitely patterns as to which formulas you are likely to get from different bosses.
-Some formulas seem to be more common than others. I got 10 or more of 6 different formulas, but there were 3 that I did not get at all. [I did not get Molten Orb, Lyre of Apollo, or Blood of Ares in these runs. In fact I have never gotten a copy of Blood of Ares.]
-There did seem to be a seed effect. On most 10-run sets I tended to get 1 or 2 formulas. Occasionally I would see 4 or more in a single set. (The most I saw in a single run was 3.)
-While this data may be useful for predicting which formulas to expect from a particular run, farming for a particular formula can still be frustrating. [I originally started this whole thing to find Touch of the Fool which I needed to make other artifacts. I did not get one until the 97th run on normal Megalesios.
Hope you find the data useful. (In the three posts below.) My farming days are over for a while. I’m going to concentrate my TQ time now on trying out different builds and working through the Lilith mod.

I'm very surprised by the lack of replies and comments on your many guides, info and data posts.
Imo it's very interesting to study these things, as they're questioning the term "random".

Big thanks for your time and effort.
Keep up that spirit.

It was info from previous forum posted by our members, and since there are much more players who are playing Anniversary Edition and expansions, there are not much people who comment, but everyone who search for this info can find it, you can see how many times each topic was read.

Yeah i did notice the big amount of activity in the AE forum. And i def need to take a closer look on that, since that's all new to me.
But still, almost 1.000 views, and not a single simple "thank you".

I'm just used to, that when you find info, guides or data that you have been looking for that solves the problem or qustion you had, that you then at least leave a simple "thank you".

But it was not to start a debate about it, i was just wondering and thinking loud.  ;D
