Drop Rates in Pre-Searing....[edit source]

Has anyone noticed that the drop rates in Pre have diminished significantly since the tripple dye drop weekend? I used to get 2-4 dye every run in the Green Hills Country, but now I only get one every other run or so. -Lefick Depr 12, 2007

Are the Dye drop rates higher in the other 'newb areas' as well? (Istan and Shing Jea) I ask this because my new elementalist has had some crazy dye drops. Two or three per explorable in Istan. Lazarus 20:17, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Total Drops[edit source]

On there you put all the statistics and stuff and added them all up to 100%. So, you're saying that a dye drops 100% of the time. WOOT! I'mm gonna go farm Melandru's Stalkers!--Spam King Sig.gifSpamKing 16:54, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Feeling a little noobish, Spam King? Those values say that when a dye drops it has that percent chance to be that color, not how often those particular dyes drop.

how often does dye drop wat is the chance of getting it from a foe..not caring about colour.

An additional line[edit source]

Note: The line I added are numbers for 6 of us gathering dyes for almost a year and pooling them all together for a count. NylanaGreymoon 21:14, 28 March 2008 (UTC) NG

Data?[edit source]

I was just clicking around the site and came across the dye page. i read stuff fon this site all the time but have never done anything to contribute so hopefully this is useful!

I collected these dyes ever since I started playing, which was when Nightfall came out. Since I have never sold or used any of them, and just stacked them in storage, I imagine that its ok to use as Drop Rate (although I can recall occasions where I accidently sold a dye to the merchant it couldn't have been very many times)

Black - 13 White - 21 Blue - 51 Brown - 72 Green - 67 Silver - 57 Yellow - 79 Purple - 83 Red - 50 Orange - 82

Proposed rates[edit source]

The data listed so far is biased against brown and white dyes because of data entered by people just listing how many they have, many of which were obtained before those two colors were added. From years of experience I've seen that yellow, orange, brown, green, and purple drop most frequently, red, blue, and silver drop less frequently, and black and white are the rarest. Dyes within each of those groups seem to drop at the same rate, except that white may drop slightly more often than black. So here are my proposed drop rates alongside KohanX's:

Green Yellow Orange Brown Purple Blue Red Silver White Black
Observed 14.7% 16.2% 12.6% 11.3% 12.6% 8.9% 9.1% 9.4% 2.5% 2.8%
KohanX's Proposal 15% 15% 12.5% 10% 12.5% 10% 10% 10% 2.5% 2.5%
Kirbman's Proposal 13% 13% 13% 13% 13% 10% 10% 10% 3% 2%

I agree mostly with you, Kirbman, exept for the the red, brown, and black. And I think the brown dye actually drops more than the others, that red drops in the same amount as green, yellow, etc. And that black drops more than white. I have no data to prove it, it is just an observation made by me from my inventory. Otherwise, move this to the article.
