Probabilities by Kotrin
*If you are MG 4 or higher:*
- Chances of getting zero element: 80%
- Chances of getting one element: 16%
- Chances of getting two elements: 4%
are correct if:
- you try to get 1st element with probability 0.2
- you try go get 2nd element with probability 0.2, but only when you've got 1st element
If there were 2 independent rolls to get an element then probabilities were theses:
- Chances of getting zero element: 64%
- Chances of getting one element: 32%
- Chances of getting two elements: 4%
(those calculations are provided in the link above)

*- Chances of getting zero element: 64%*
- Chances of getting one element: 32%
- Chances of getting two elements: 4%
Is correct
From Arctic's mouth..."Think of rolling 1 "5" sided dice two times. That is how your double elements works" |

I think I remember reading somewhere else...that the 'true' probability of getting 2 elements is actually closer to 1% than 4%.
I have been keeping track of my element drops for the last 202 merc missions, and my ratio has been 1.48%
So yeah...it is rare. Good luck! |

I have been keeping track of my elements from 1266 (MQ), and now im on 1561 done. I have evidence on my inform page. I have get doble elements: 1475, 1490, 1580 and 1623.
that means : 4 times for 300 MQ done |

Nope, it's not correct (and my info is from Arctic as well).
If there were two independent rolls for Elements, chances of getting one Element would increase a lot as soon as you are entitled to win two for a given mercenary quest. This is definitely not the case.
In other words, the 5-sided die is rolled an extra time only if the first roll gave a 1.
I remember when this discussion took place other people posted their rates of 2-Elements drops, and it was indeed around 4%. |

exactly waht i said in he previous topic there is 20% chance to roll 1 or get 1 element
then if you roll 1 then there is 20% chance to get second element = 4%
however the real drop rates are around 1.5% which means that its not 20% chance to get second element but around 7.5% or even upto 10%
(my theory) |

People, chance to get 1 element - 0.2. Chance to get 2 elements - 0.2*0.2=0.04 (because second lement make dropped only after drop first element).
*my ratio has been 1.48%*&&*4 times for 300 MQ done *. Probability theory talk us that with small quantity of rolls real percent can greatly differ from theoretical percent.
Chance of getting avers on coin is 50%. Yes? But if you dropped coin 2 times, you can take 2 avers. And you calculate that chance of drop avers - 100%? |

You receive 229 gold, Abrasive, Abrasive i got it on quest 675 |

I don't know, maybe i am just unlucky.
