Also how do you find the firebreathing skeletal dragon in the jagged caverns I cant seem to find him is there a secret cause I run into a dead end circle with no firebreathing dragon.

I am curious if the KOATW has been moved - a simple yes or no answer would suffice.
The reason for the question is we have 3 players that have been very loyally camping the Skele Mage in Maus for over 7,000  kills and that does include my help to see if we can get it drop.
Or  has the drop been made to 1/10,000?

The item is still in the same place and the drop rate hasn't been changed since 2013

To be clear, we 3 players are camping kaotM without success (not kaotW). Many many kills, many levels made, no drop. We don't really complain (although we are more or less forced to give up such hard camp), we were just wondering if something is wrong.

--------------------------------------------------

Parenthesis :

I made some interesting maths for a better understanding.

Suppose drop rate is 1/n (with n an integer).
The probability to loot item in less than n/3 kills is about 28%
The probability to loot item in less than n/2 kills is about 48%
The probability to loot item in less than n kills is about 63%
The probability to loot item in less than 2n kills is about 86%

We have now a good idea of what an insane drop rate is : for example, if rate is 1/3000,  making 2000 kills only gives you a 48% chance to loot. Making 6000 kills still gives you 14% chance to obtain nothing.

(For those who know, it's a simple use of geometric law, with the assumption that n is high enough; n>=150 already works)

It's probably my fault from rebooting the server so often.  There's a good chance it was in the mob at one of the times I rebooted.  So come talk to me in game.

Oops, I put KOATW that was a mistake it is KOATM. The reason I did intervene and ask the question is because not only are these players the first ones in a couple of years to actually stick around more than a week but they have been a real pleasure. They are the first players I've known to really work together even on a camp and help and support each other. Not to mention not complaining at all and really grinding for what they want, never asking for it.

@ Dunsh the shoulders you're looking for are dropped by the Barrow Wright in Treasure room for the Tower of Bebiness.
