Cheers for the help.64 hours and counting,at least ***i can murder him with Sal now*** .


I don't know how the "fancy mathematics" of the drop rate works, but killing him with another character don't make the process start from the begining?


no. each attempt is %100 independent from all other.

it could drop at attempt 1 or attempt 10,000 or any attempt in between (or beyond if you are really unlucky)

killing him more does not increase your drop chance. it only increases the # of times you have rolled the random # generator dice to potentially have it drop


ouch... That's an enormous incentive to keep farming the burners for the Cobra. Not.

Doesn't the drop rate increase with more players?

Nope. More players means more Badass enemies. Badass enemies have a higher chance to drop legendaries than normal mobs, thus more players = 'better' loot. Has no effect on bosses/raids.

Yeah I keep getting Moxxi pictures and not much else, I'll keep grinding it though, it has to drop at some point while I'm still sane ... right ?
