I'm not sure, but 50% drop rate bonus means 1/562.5?

Since 100% drop rate INCREASE would be 1/375

200% would be 1/250 etc

I'm bad at math tho, correct me if I'm wrong, curious about this :)

I see where you are coming from, but you seem to have decreased the number 750 by 50%, and then thrown that into a percentage. Properly, you are actually increasing a number [fraction], such by using the difference and final value calculation formulas, two-step process:


difference = initialValue * % whole value / 100

difference = (1/750) * (50/100)

difference = 0.0006666666

 

finalValue = initialValue + difference
 

finalValue = (1/750) + 0.0006666666

finalValue = 0.00133333 + 0.00066666

finalValue = ~0.002000 

finalValue = 1/500 drop rate

 

Once upon a time I was told that the 50% drop rate increase actually removes 50% of the numbers from your roll on the random number generator, used to determine if you get a drop of not (which is how I calculated it originally).

From the OSRS Wiki: "The Ring of Wealth is an enchanted ring that removed 32 of the empty slots from the gem drop table"

This is where, I presume, the idea that 50% of slots are removed comes from.

I received my elite clue scroll drop at kill count of 836.

1/128 drop rate (without ROW, LDI, DRPin increase accounted for)

1/128 = 0.0078125

(1-0.0078125)^835 = 0.00143147 = .1431% probability of not having received at least one elite clue on 835 kills; without my ROW, LDI, DRPin accounted for. Ridiculous.
