A precursor should be purchasable for 2500 dungeon tokens of each dungeon type. Hard work – tons of grinding – but at least you are working towards a goal instead of flushing your stuff through the mystic toilet.

Ouch, looks like they’ve reduced the chances of getting a precursor even more then. Used to be that 500g+ on rares would pretty much assure you of one.

Thank you for sharing your pain with us.

Anet. Please fix precursors. There is no reason for anything to cost 500G on the trade post.

What was intended as a small step on the road to a Legendary has become the whole journey. Compared with getting a Precursor, all the other stuff you need to craft one is insignificant.

RNG is a terrible way to hand out the best rewards in the game, please reconsider this as a strategy.

To be fair, with 500g previously you could have bought 2-4x as many rares :P

But yep, it needs to change… I get that it’s supposed to be rare, and no we don’t want everyone to have them, but it’s this luck based mystic toilet that we’re all so sick of flushing our money down.

But it’s not a way to obtain precursors, it’s a way to obtain an exotic 2Her.
And it happens to have a very tiny chance of getting you precursor. So ignorable small instead that intentionally going for it is automatically – strongly – discouraged.

In other words, chances are set so low in games you create because you don’t want people to perceive it as a legitimate goal to pursue. Rather it’s an extraordinary rare lottery win bonus.

I know a lot of people who have begun making their legendary and like all of them they lack their precursor. I however went the other way around, I didn’t start collecting/crafting my legendary until I got my precursor. I know it may sound dumb but I never stressed over making my weapon because I got the ‘unobtainable precursor’ first. I would advise others to do the same, the MF is a cold beast that enjoys eating your hard earned money and spitting out junk. Yet, we keep trying because it’s a gamble. What’s life without a few risks right? Thank you for posting your findings. I know it took you a lot of time and gold, best of luck to ya!

No, it’s called RNG… some people will drop 2000k and never see a precursor. Some guy will run up to the MF with 4 rares and get a dusk. It’s how it goes.

Epic statistics fail.

The OP conducted this over a miniscule sample size for the purpose of data acquisition. He’s testing for something that presumably has a rate of occurrence significantly below 1% but only has a sample size of about 400. A “massive sample size” would need to be in the tens of thousands at the very least. For this test, if we assume the rate of the mystic forge granting a precursor for 4 rare items is 0.5% then there is a 13.5% chance that a person putting 1600 rares (that is to say, 400 trials) will fail to receive a precursor. If we drop that assumed rate to 0.1% there is a 67% chance that no precursor is created. If we up the assumed rate to 1% (which seems awfully high to me, and would imply about a 5% rate for 4 exotics) there’s still a 2% chance a person would put 1600 rares into the forge without receiving a precursor back. While that seems like a low percentage, it actually implies that out of every 50 people that try with 1600 rares, on average one of them will fail.

The fact that someone else got one on the first try does not affect these data at all. However, it’s a huge mistake to try claim that these data represent a “massive” sample size.

You’re right, I should have said “comparatively massive,” because 400 is orders of magnitude greater than 1.

Either way, you’re seem to be missing the point of my post. I’m not claiming that the OP has created a statistical opus magnum that is the definitive test of the mystic forge – obviously a test orders of magnitude would be preferable. I’m saying that offering the statement “I got it on my first try!” is asinine as refutation of a testing pool 400 times larger.

It’s not that the OP has pinned it down precisely – far from it. But he’s gone a hell of a lot further than rolling the dice once.

dont worry op, ofc people is going to come with smart stuff ‘’i got the precursor in my first try’’ but we know the precursors are absurd to get if isnt by the TP. They should add these items to temple merchants for 500 gold and 500k karma if they wanted (because apparently they want to protect the TP, snowflakes wise) so it will be in pair with the current prices.

in ‘’my days’’ precursors were 10-15 gold.

A “massive sample size” would need to be in the tens of thousands at the very least.

I see “massive sample size” posted a lot in regards to statistics and usually it is incorrect. It ultimately depends upon what is attempting to be discerned as to how large the sample size must be. Increases in the sample size reduce error and for particularly low percent occurrences getting the accuracy within an acceptable range can be difficult; trying to determine tenths of a percent when your error is around a whole percent is not terribly useful.

However regardless of how “massive” or “tiny” the sample size, using the P value (confidence interval) we can make conclusions from the above test. The idea that it wasn’t a “massive sample size” so its useless is completely erroneous despite its pervasiveness on online forums.

In this case with a 440 trials with no drops we can say for a P value of .05 that the drop rate is less than .7%.

Now, we can’t really say much else about the drop rate from this test, but there are conclusions that can be drawn.

The saddest thing about all this (imho) is the fact that the OP is not any closer to getting a precursor than he was before. Those 440 tries literally did him no good at all. If anything he’s further away than he was because now he’s broke.

It’s a little troubling that someone could spend that much time and money attempting to get a precursor and actually end up further away than when they started, but such is the nature of RNG.

It shouldn’t even be possible for someone to spend that much money and time and not receive a precursor. People who work hard in the game shouldn’t go home empty handed.

I dont understand how people can moan about playing the Mystic Lottery! The idea is that you have two choices with obtaining a precursor- save your gold and buy one or purchase a lottery ticket with a tiny chance of winning. This chance will more than likely mean you spend a lot more than actually buying the thing, but COULD mean you spend less.

There’s only one real winner in gambling in real life and its certainly not you. If you were guaranteed to get, say, Dusk after spending 400m on rares/exotics and Dusk costs 400m on the TP(ive not checked the price in a while!) then EVERYONE will gamble to get it because youre guaranteed to spend the same/less than its ‘worth’.

I like RNG and always will. I gamble when I want to have a little fun and more often than not I lose gold but its the thrill of gambling that makes it worth it. When I dont think I will get that thrill I just save/sell the items and take away the gamble. The only exception to this was when I bought 14k Halloween bags aiming to make a profit after the event only to see prices plummet. I needed the space on my alt so decided to open them all and write off the 20g investment. 14k bags in I got the endless tonic but it wouldntve mattered either way.

Ouch, looks like they’ve reduced the chances of getting a precursor even more then. Used to be that 500g+ on rares would pretty much assure you of one.

Thank you for sharing your pain with us.

Anet. Please fix precursors. There is no reason for anything to cost 500G on the trade post.

What was intended as a small step on the road to a Legendary has become the whole journey. Compared with getting a Precursor, all the other stuff you need to craft one is insignificant.

RNG is a terrible way to hand out the best rewards in the game, please reconsider this as a strategy.

I think they fix the RNG for mystic clover too. Yesterday, I got 0 mystic clover out of 5 tries on 10 mystic clover recipe. I used to get at least 10 clovers out of 5 tries, now that luck is gone down the toilet too. sigh
