    Skull Lantern 100% drop rate

    Post by papael on Thu Jan 26, 2012 5:22 pm

    In all my 3 playthroughs until now the Necromancer in the bottom of the Catacombs (the one backed up by two skeleton archers right at the exit/entrance of the bone piles full of skeleton wheels) dropped a Skull Lantern.

    Maybe someone with clearance could add this to Skull Lantern description and Catacombs Location Overview in the wiki.

    Getting a skull Lantern here will allow people to visit the Tomb of Giants early without having to resort to the sunlight maggots from Lost Izalith or the light spell.

    Not 100% for me think uve just been very lucky. 8ve had the same thing happen with the symbol of avarice dropping over 4 times in a row from the same mimic in the dukes.

    the one that always drops it for me is the one that around the darkmoon ring.

    This is weird. I think I also got the Symbol of Avarice from this guy in the previous 2 times. I still haven't reached him this time.

    I've only picked up the one in ToG, never had a necromancer drop one.

    Pretty sure the Skull Lantern AND the Symbol of Avarice are 100% drop rate from the last Necromancer//Mimic you kill.

    Doesn't matter what order, it's always the last one.

    On all of my characters I've never had a skull lantern drop for me. I'm pretty sure there is a body in the catacombs now that has one.

    I've killed all neceomancers and mimics but have never gotten either trinkets to drop. Either I have luck bad enough to lose a 100% drop, or it's not a 100% drop.

    not a 100% drop

    i killed pinwheel on my lvl 21 toon yesterday and the lantern did not drop although i killed all the necromencers on the way... poor rhea has to wait for a while till i get the maggot because it is impossible to navigate in the totg without some light source (i have 11 int so no light spell is possible either unless i lvl up which i dont want)

    Weird. I've gone through the game at least 10 times since the patch, and have literally always gotten both drops from the last of the bunch I've killed.
