I just did 4 runs of act 1 on MP5 with 5 stacks of NV and not a single one dropped.
I've already killed at least 6-7 other keywardens on various MPs without ever getting a single key.
Are they really that rare or am I just unlucky?
Granted I'm only Paragon level 9, so my MF isn't that high I guess =(.

Once you've done over 1k runs your numbers will average out.
Don't worry. It gets better in act II. Also you should get better friends. Aren't you thankful?

100% on mp10 and 70% on mp9, 60% on mp8, 50% on mp7, 40% on mp5-6, 30% on mp 4, 20% on mp3, 10% on mp 1,2. pfftt.. Same goes for organs. This is true drop rate % based on 300 hours I spent on farming keys and uber runs.

Chance to roll ok hellfire ring? less than 5%.

Your Paragon level doesn't matter, the drop rate is only based on the monster power lever you're on.

I see, MF is actually completely irrelevant? I didn't know that.

For keys yes. It can be frustrating at times when a dry spell hits. Though, I have had keys drop on MP1 when I was just farming gold, so sometimes you can get lucky.

I did no more than 15 on MP0 in Acts 1,2, & 3 and got all keys. Now I need the plans.

It is.

Many people still believe in it when there are people with no MF gear on finding legendaries/sets very frequently or people doing MP1 Alk Routes finding legendaries/sets every run or even worse, both of them combined.

^This is not the real %s so take it with a grain of salt.



TC, you just got unlucky in that sample of runs. Keys will drop 50% of the time at MP5. Because of short term variance sometimes you get a key sometimes you don't. The 50% will work itself out in the long run.

I feel your pain. Took me almost 2 weeks to gather my first set of 9 keys working mainly on mp1 and 2. I can comfortably do mp3 now, and tediously do mp4....even then, Act 3 keywarden drops for crap.
