A LS mate said that the closer it is to a full moon, the better your drop rates will be. Is there any truth to this? --- Jackass Thompson doesn't approve of Wii Music. He's on a crusade to put an end to sax and violins in games

I think people started this rumor back when everyone wanted their AF1. It was a way to get out of it.
Guy1 : Hey Guy2 can you help me get my coffer key at PlaceX? *30 seconds pass* Guy1:Well can you? Guy2: I would but that place has a a horrible drop rate. Guy2:However the drop rate sky rockets when there is a full moon! So lets save sometime and wait for a full moon!
*Days pass and finally a full moon hits*
Guy1: /l Can anyone help me farm now? *Everyone is busy / Not online*
Unless your a girl....then
*Its 3 am on a Monday and everyone has been EXPin all night* *Its even a new moon on a darksday*
Girl1: Can anyone help me get my coffer key from PlaceX? Guy1: Sure! Guy3: Yea I'll call into work sick! Guy4: **** yea!~ Guy5: I'll meet you there. Guy6: Count me in! Guy7: Woot lets do this! Guy8: I like eggs. Guy2: What about my coffer key? Guy1: Dude don't be so selfish Guy3: Yea man she asked 1st Guy4: Your a lamer Guy5: Maybe if its not too late......But I don't think so Guy6: Hmm I only have time for one Guy7: Umm no Guy8: I like eggs.

If you /slap the enemy while it's under 25%, you'll have a better chance of getting an item.
