Today's topic is about an item's rarity.
After a battle, monsters will drop gold and items. Monsters will definitely drop gold, but the likelihood of a monster dropping an item differs. The probability of items dropping depends on the category the item belongs to, namely, 'Treasure', 'Rare Treasure', and 'Ultra Rare Treasure'. The rate at which items appear differ greatly! The probability of a 'Treasure' appearing is 1 / 1 to 1 / 128 while the probability of a 'Rare Treasure' appearing is 1 / 256 to 1 / 1,024 and 'Ultra Rare Treasure', 1 / 4,096 to 1 /16,384. Of course, it's not necessarily the case that you will get an item if you participate in 128 battles.
Wearing certain equipments will also allow you to have a higher chance of obtaining the items. For example, 'Fortune Charm', an item with a name that suggests fortune, will improve your probabilty of obtaining an 'Ultra Rare Treasure' to range from 1/2,048 to 1/8,192 when equiped.
Equipping multiple similar equipments will also improve your chance of getting items. For example, when 'Fortune Charm' is worn by all 8 members of your team, your chances of getting an 'Ultra Rare Treasure' will be improved by 16 times, making the probability 1/256 to 1/1,024.
Bear in mind that there is a limit for maximising your probability and that is, 5 times for the 'Treasure' category, 10 times for the 'Rare Treasure', and 50 times for the 'Ultra Rare Treasure' category. Improving your chances by 50 times for an item from the 'Ultra Rare Treasure' category will bring the probability up to 1/82- 1/327!
There are a number of items which can only be obtained from the loot monsters drop. That is why, be sure to maximise your chances of obtaining these items by putting on equipment, aiming for a complete collection!
