    Elder Charms drop chance.

    Hello, what is the drop chance for a piece of item on the elder charms?
    I have now used 29 elder charms and i have gotten ONE item, this cant even be bad luck...

    ---------- Post added 2013-02-10 at 10:23 PM ----------

    Correction, 30 fucking coins 1 item

    I've probably used roughly 60 coins so far this expansion and thus far I have gotten 3 items. At my rate its about 1/20 chance from a coin.

    For me the chance has been about 33% the last few weeks but I think the actual chance is 15% or so. Yes, you're really unlucky.

    Well, from my own experience I'd say it's about 1 item per 7 or 8 coins.

    I thought Elder Charms just gave you a second roll? I'd assume it's about the same as getting a piece of gear in general.

    Think they stated it was 15%? Much like LFR drop chance.

    7,5-15% depending on how many items you can win, according to sources.

    For me so far it's been almost every other or 1 out of 3.

    Maybe it diminishes the more paladin alts you have? RNG

    Yeah I heard, Paladin, or even races especially Gnomes, greatly lower the drop rates.

    Well for me it's funny.. I am the living proof to myself in regards how RNG works.
    My main get's showered with bonus roll loot. Pretty much on a 2:1 ratio. Every second charm wins something. Whether I actually need it, is another ballgame.
    My alt however, with him I can't win a single piece at all. All charms are wasted on him.

    What is it you don't understand with EXTRA ROLL and RNG. Just wondering.

    I've gotten a lot of loot from tokens... Too bad I don't need the loot i've been getting.

    It can be, and it is.

    The former main tank of my alts' guild went a full year of ICC without seeing a tanking 1h drop, and he had only missed one raid night that whole time.

    I know some folks who haven't won jack from Sha of Anger, and some folks who have gotten like half a dozen tier pieces off it. I know some folks who have only gotten one or two items from bonus rolls, and some who get an item every 2/3 bonus rolls. RNG is RNG.

    16%, assuming a winning roll is 85-100 inclusive on both ends.

    RNG is RNG unless you're on the bad end of it. Then it's just a grand conspiracy.

    That being said, I wonder if we would've been better off without the bonus rolls, because the perception of them has turned from "sweet, I get an extra chance at an item, better than nothing" to "I am entitled to a piece of useful gear when using my coin."
