I went for a few months with nothing and then got three drops rather quickly. I had another (shorter) dry spell followed by about three in fast succession. While this is proof of absolutely nothing, it does make me doubt how effective the randomness coding really is.

If you want, I can give you my katana that I got couple of weeks ago.

Lol, I remember when Jiraiya changed his name to Mandos and tricked everyone that was hilarious.

Sorry to say, but humans are notoriously terrible judges of randomness. That and it's incredibly easy to make something pseudo random.

Of course, this has no bearing on the merits of the system.

I honestly had forgotten about the drops...

Haven't received one yet.

Umm..you own a forging character..

[RX3]Cotillion December 26 2009 8:47 PM EST

Haven't forged in at least 2 months... Maybe even 3.

And although I do not use all of my BA every day, I think I should have had at least one drop.
