    Last week, ~70% of all CT drops were monk gear. This week I'm noticing a lot of healer gear. I wonder if the loot table formula's are based on time (minute/hour/day/year) based factors and it gravely shifts every 5-7 days. I read of this form of random generation in a programing textbook and cannot help but wonder...

    It seems more random than Coil to me, which is fine.

    I'll take randomly bad luck over Dragoon gear dropping every single week, ever, any day.

    Sure, but there are still 4:1 drops for DD to tank or healer. 4 DD sets, 1 tank set!

    Better than 9 sets like some people want.

    CT drops are pretty terrible. Took me 3 weeks just to get Drg gloves and I ran 10+ times each week trying. A lot of the runs are the same drops over and over and over again, with a very few occasionally offering something different. Can cry RNG all you want but it's some of the worst RNG ever, given SE's track record of terrible game coding though it wouldn't surprise me if their algorithm was written by a semi-retarded 10 year old.

    I don't line the RNG in CT. At least it doesn't work in my favor I did around 30 runs of CT last week and didn't get the items I needed/wanted. It's like coil for me all I see is drg stuff :>

    random number generator generating numbers randomly again.


    Yes it will be pseudo random but that just means you can predict the next result if you know the starting conditions. It doesn't make the actual drops any less random in effect. You're just seeing clusters which is entirely expected in any random distribution.

    Sorry if you don't want to hear that, but it's true.

    I have the same feeling sometimes on Hyperion : 2 week ago, DRG everywhere; last week MNK and now it's healer time. But, each week, I saw drop for each job, so the RNG in CT seems nice to me.

    For me and many others on my server, Bard and Monk drops are the most common CT drops.
