About Loot Edit
The term "loot" refers to any item that can be scavaged (looted) from the bodies of dead Creatures. Loot varies by creature, and some items are found more frequently than others. Usually the most valuable items are the most rare.http://
A popular rumour says that wearing a Wolf Tooth Chain will increase the chance of dropping a rare item. This has been provenfalsesince the loot of a monster is decided when the monster is spawned, not when killed.
Another rumour says that some respawns provide better loot than others, however this has not been confirmed (neither true nor false).http://
Looting Guidelines Edit
The following lists give reccomendations for what loot to collect while hunting. The "GP/oz" ratio also takes into account the number of spaces an item takes up in your backpack, not just its raw value.
General guidelines are to collect loot giving preference in the following order. This list is only a general guideline, there are obvious exceptions, so use your common sense when collecting items. For specific lists, check the appropriate section below.
- Gems and Jewelry
- Platinum Coins
- Rare or Magical Items (rings, amulets, etc.)
- Creature Products
- Gold Coins
Some assumptions were made when creating these lists:
- It is assumed that you will not keep or use any item looted. These lists are sorted based on the assumption that all items will be sold for gold coins.
- In order for the lists to be equally valuable in all game worlds, only prices offered by NPCs is used. Most items can be sold to other players for more money.
- The weight for each item assumes that you will be carrying your loot in a backpack. If you were to use a bag (or other container) to hold your loot, then the weight/gp ratio would be slightly different.
