(MS) Drop Rate Seal
 
Does anybody know what's the % increase on the seal? And does it stack with Drop Rate fortunes?

Thanks!

From what I've heard it's like if you were to get a 100% drop rate from Stella's fortune. <-- I agree with this after using them many times.
They are my favorite seal!
Yes, they stack with fortunes. See the level achievements thread: /forum/trickster-onl...ml#post1795457
In about 6 hours I collected 5000 chaos integer bytes .72 (5000 .72 bytes=an entire lvl @ 386!) using a drop rate seal and 30% drop rate acquired from stella.
When I was grinding there 2-3 bytes would drop from the monster, EVERYtime. Where usually only 1 byte drops, possibly, not every time.
A few days ago, using a drop rate seal, I farmed 100 stone balls in under an hour, it may have only been 30 mins.
I think the drop rate seal is worth it, no matter what you're hunting for.... unless it's uniques because I'm pretty sure it has no affect on them.

Oh, and it makes those painful questing areas (alteo, abyss, etc.) well... less painful :D

EDIT: Just to clarify - It doesn't mean that an item will drop 100% of the time, its like you got a 100% drop rate fortune. Meaning some items, from some monsters will drop every time (like the bytes) but others won't.... it depends on the monster's drop rate for the item you are hunting (hope that makes sense)

They made tap spa easier for me, was able to get all 50 of the items from the quests that needed them in a day, some dropped in 3-5 uncommonly while i was gathering chains and bats for spicy quest.

I experienced the same thing while in tap spa and while hunting cards... I'd experience a period where things would stop dropping, I'd keep killing and killing and then all of the sudden 5 lava horse's hearts or 5 cards would drop o_o
Drop rate seal ftw!

It may or may not be possible, but I'd like to see a screenshot of a boss who'll drop 2 or more uniques consecutively :D

How much drop rate % does the seal add?

It is the equivalent of getting a 100% drop rate from a fortune. It doesn't mean something drops 100% of the time... same as saying a 30% drop rate doesn't mean an item will drop 1/3 of the time...

The rate, whatever it may be, at which an item dropped will be increased by 100% by using a drop rate seal.

Ok thanks a lot and gl getting to 400^

It's easier to say the drop rate for all items is doubled.

That's only true if you are using a 100% Drop Seal.

If anyone is confused on the rate it's usually like this, let me show an example:

Let's say an item like the Stone Ball has a drop rate of 6%. If you get Stella's fortune and got 30% the Stone Ball's drop rate will eventually rise up to 7.8% not 36%.

Though I've heard from a friend that items don't drop often but rather drop 2-3 pieces from one mob. I'm really confused as to how these drop rate really works.
