Drop rates

From Wildermyth Wiki

Item types

When generating a random item drop, the game first chooses the type of item. The relative chance of getting each item type is given in the following table. However, a given item drop source may not allow every possible type. For weapons and armor, the tier depends on the chapter and is also given in the table.

Item type Relative
drop rate
Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 4 Chapter 5
Weapon 0.3 1 1 2 2 3
Armor 0.31 1 1 1 2 2
Augment 0.4
Off Hand 0.1

If a weapon drops, the relative odds of each type of weapon are as follows:

Weapon type Relative drop rate
Sword 1.0
Axe 1.0
Spear 1.0
Mace 1.0
Bow 1.5
Crossbow 0.8
Dagger 0.7
Staff 1.0
Wand 0.8

If instead a piece of armor drops, the relative odds of each class are as follows:

Armor type Relative drop rate
Warrior Armor 4.0
Hunter Armor 3.0
Mystic Armor 2.0


If weapon is selected to drop, there is a chance that it will be an artifact weapon. The chance starts at 0, increases by 0.15 each time a non-artifact weapon drops, and decreases by 0.5 each time an artifact weapon drops. The following artifacts can appear as random drops. Each artifact of a given type is equally likely to drop. Accordingly, the table lists each artifact's effective drop rate, which is calculated as the weapon type's relative drop rate divided by the number of droppable artifacts of that type.

An artifact will not drop if a hero in the campaign already possesses it. This behavior can raise the effective drop rate of other artifacts of the same type.
