Seriously, double-check the Magic Shawl drop chance in the code.

    This one item has been the issue of so many complaints, it is the rarest drop in the game by far, unnecessarily so. People swear they farm a peculiar number of hours without seeing it. A streamer has spent a couple hours farming for it to no avail.

    From personal experience, I've ran a ridiculous number of Arcade Mode runs and see it drop off of Pumpkin Mages maybe once or twice, if that. Scarfs and Pumpkin Helmets drop plenty, though.

    I am 99% sure at this point the drop chance has a decimal point in the wrong position. Instead of 1.5% it's .15%. If not that, there is something else at play here. It's not a coincidence that this takes the longest to farm in Story Mode out of all other items and never, ever drops in Arcade.

    If the drop chance is .15% or something by design, though... the stats clearly don't warrant it. For something this rare I'd expect to be on par with post-Fortress gear. :p

    Or pre-fortress crafted gear :D I still think it's ridiculous you can craft the best chestplate in the game for +DEF before you even enter South Evergrind.

    That one isn't so bad since it's multi-level. First get an adventurer shirt, then craft that into a rabby shirt, then find the HoM, then get a cube and craft that into a slime shirt. Hard for most anyone to make without a guide or extensive exploration.

    Haha, stahp, you think I'd mistakenly make a 1.5 % drop into a .15 % drop??

    I had mistakenly made a 2.5 % drop into a .25 % one!

    (This will be fixed in the next patch, and 100 % accounts will be worth a lot less on G2A)

    Yoo..... You are more evil than legos in a dark room. Do you know how long we've been farming for that item?!?!?!?

    When I think of all the time completionists have spent murdering 400 Lantern Jacks instead of 40... I'm filled with shame, guilt and remorse. :( This feeling I shall dub... shilorse.

  7. It took me over 24 hours to farm for the shawl. It took more than 400 Lantern Jacks. More like 2000+ (or something like that. :p)

    But hey! Look! 100% Completion now!

    Now I wonder what I should do with these 3374 pumpkin seeds. A pure damage pet, maybe?

    And maybe I'll make it my own Jumpkin so he can feed off of the innards of its own kind.
