I was trying to farm large titantite in the depths from the slime monsters (the ones that drop from the ceiling before bonfire) and noticed something....strange. I had the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring on, but was hollow with zero humanity (item drop was 300). I was actually doing pretty well, getting maybe 1 large titanite per run. I decided to turn human and up my humanity, and noted that I was going on multiple runs without getting a single large titante (but was getting plenty of greens) and my item drop was a bit higher (maybe 320 or 330). My logical conclusion was that rare drops were more abundant as a hollow with just the serpent ring on and no humanity (which doesn't make a lot of sense as the item drop would be lower?).
Has anyone else seen this before?? I think I might try it on the clams and see if it is easier to farm twinkling titanite?
Why do I have to preview my message, WHY CAN'T I JUST POST IT?!?!
rare drops? Not related to your thread, but basilisks(frogs) in the sewers have a low chance to drop eyes of death...I used the serpent ring and I'm getting 1 drop per 2-3 times clearing that wave of basilisks...just rest near the bonfire and do homeward/bone and repeat.
