Funny story --- from today

Post by BethelAbba » Sun Aug 12, 2018 4:48 pm

In a Facebook group I frequent the question was posed: Tell us one odd fact about yourself. This was my response.

WS: Here's a fun fact: I am the UNLUCKIEST Video Game player in history.

I played Diablo 2 for five years --- NEVER ONCE got a Stone of Jordan (SoJ) drop.

I played Guild Wars for SEVEN years --- NEVER ONCE got a single Ecto drop.

I have played Andor's Trail for the last 4 years --- NEVER ONCE got a single one of the uber-rare 1/10,000 chance drops.

It took me 5 years playing Minecraft.... before I ever visited "The End" to fight the Ender Dragon. How pathetic is that?

Seriously... not making any of this up... unluckiest game player you've ever met.

I posted that up a mere 35 minutes ago.
I just got my first ever Ring of Lesser Shadow. literally... just now... after having said that on Facebook. I only killed 641 Shadow Gargoyle trainers and 446 Shadow Gargoyle Masters. I usually keep my counts by how many rocks I get... and I farm until I get 100 rocks and then move on. 263 rocks, total.

I had just started fighting them again after a run to the Iqhan Chaos cave to grab Bloodletter and give myself a level boost to 32. Only took less than two hours or so.

I am quite happy.

Maybe because you spoke out about it. :)

Maybe so, but probably not. Bought 40 Star Seeker chests in Armello this weekend and got nothing for it. My friend bought an equal amount and ended up with two rares and a legendary. He likes to rub it in that his luck is better than mine.

I leveled up to 40, picked up Blade of the Defiler and now I am back to farming shadow Priests for the healing potions they drop. If I pick up a second ring...... I'll consider my luck to have changed.

:D :D :D :shock:

Ok, now I have to concede..... I just got a second one and I wasn't trying for it!

I am at relatively low numbers too.... 737 Shadow trainers, 507 Shadow Masters and only 38 more rocks from my last count. 3 points into magic find really must do a great job.....


For the record, this character hasn't used a single bone meal potion.... I have been relying on bread and healing potion drops. I was actually farming simply to put my healing potions back to a comfortable 250 before I attempt the run to Regard.
I have only used 230 healing potions so far.... At 40th level. About 200 loaves of bread.

At this point (re: last two comments I made here) I will definitely have to say "Thank you, I think you're right".

Yes!! Positivity is half of luck, the other half is consistency!
