    I think we're like 3/10 on body pieces. It's just luck as to what drops.

    Re: proto omega question

    We're 4/11 on body ... but I recall someone on these forums posting something horrific like going over 20 runs before seeing one. I think it's reasonable to expect the drop rate to be around 25%. Anything outrageous in one direction or the other is just a statistical anomaly.

    Re: proto omega question

    I think my LS had calculated the body droprate over 2 years of runs at about 15%. Seems to kinda shift somewhere between 5% and 25% for different groups over time.

    ROFL you should see our LS. Haven't had body in probably a year? Lots of everything else though

    Re: proto omega question

    We have had runs where we have gone 2-3 Omegas in a row and got Body on each, and we have had a run of 17 Omegas and no body. Overall we are 8/29 (27.6%)

    Re: proto omega question

    Yeah it's just pretty random, every LS is going to have different results. We're only 1/12~, though we've had several double-hat and double-feet runs, and only 2 or 3 legs/hands.

    Re: proto omega question

    I don't think it's random at all.
    I am glad I kept records from our very first omega. We are a pretty prolific limbus shell. Here are our stats in about 1.3 years of doing limbus: (the body percentage always hovers around 30 percent (27-33) even if we have a slight dry spell).

    Total Tally = 37 Omegas
    12 Bodies = 32.4 percent
    17 Pants = 45.9 percent
    19 Feet = 51.4 percent
    21 Heads = 56.8 percent
    19 Hands = 51.4 percent

    Your DORP count is off by 2.

    37 Omegas x 2 Drops per + 12 Bodies = 86

    12 + 17 + 19 + 21 + 19 = 88

    So much for detailed record-keeping

    sorry a hand and a head were counted twice. Still same total bodies and same total runs.

    Re: proto omega question

    In roughly 15~ Omega's, I've seen maybe two chests without a body inside.

    Have only seen feet once though.

    Without? So you're roughly ~13/15 on Bodies? or was that a typo?

    Re: proto omega question

    Thought I'd add the total drops for my shell, since I think it's interesting to see the variation.

    Total runs: 12
    Head: 4
    Body: 1
    Hands: 3
    Legs: 8
    Feet: 9

    I also find it amusing that our only body dropped on Valentine's Day. A fitting day for Proto-Omega to give up his heart.
