Easing the Odds on Rare items.

I'm kind of including a lot of this info for quests in my carves and drops guide. Version 2.0 has some small errors in the calculations though. Working on 2.2 that clears them up.

Will your guide include taking Good/Great Luck, breaks and capture into consideration for maxing out % of getting rares? I'm in the process of scripting code to generate those out and wonder if it'll clash with something already underway or will help contribute towards it.

Ping's MH3G/U Dex. Like the official Eguide but far more comprehensive, convenient and accurate.

Which would give a higher chance for a Los Mantle: Doing triple los quest and capping all 3 with Tranq master or fate and fire?

I don't take the luck modifiers into account and I don't calculate total percentages - I just have some effective percentages to give you an idea. So no clash! I know Corfal (on here) is working on something similar. You guys may want to collaborate.

Any quest tips on Rathalos Plate? I did like 26 Rathalos (14 HR) and i got only 2 plates...

excuse me.. what about lagi species horns drop?..
any better quest for the drop?... the horns are annoying.. and seems to be more rare than the sapp/mantle

Do you need to capture the monster in these special missions to get the higher drop rate?

There are very few Rathalos Low Rank quests, and all of them have the same 3% rate. Sorry. High Rank ones give them out at a 10% rate, however.

Nope.

Can someone explain to me why plain dangerous' chances are only 19% when cold day in hell's is 23%, given that both have a 5% chance for the rare item for both the main and bonus row?

It doesn't seem consistent.

1-.95^4=18.5%
1-.95^5=22.6%

Why is one quest given 5 stacks/chances to give the item, and the other just 4?
