Are the lab enchants weighted equally?
Hi, question about enchants.
There are 15 uber lab enchants for boots and i need either ele pen or crit chance, so thats 2/15=13.33% of enchants that are good for me. I've tried 50 times without hitting one of those two enchants. The probability of me not hitting one of those 2 enchants in 50 tries is 0.87^50=0.00094 or 0.094% correct? Am i extremely unlucky or are the enchants not weighted equally? Last edited by Daglash on Nov 8, 2018, 12:08:41 AM Last bumped on Nov 10, 2018, 8:32:52 AM
 
this is a very good question that I also would like to know. Hope GGG answers this one. :)
 
If poedb is correct, most of the boot enchants have equal chance to appear, with the exception of added chaos damage and elemental penetration, which are more rare.

things just happen in rng environments. this league I hit the regen boot enchant (that I wanted) three times in one lab run (twice enchanted + darkshrine).. what are the odds of that:)

" this is true also for helmet enchantment, right? Helmet Enchantment If I've done the math right you have a total of 474 enchantment for the helmet:  405 with 0.11% drop rate > chance to have one of those enchantment is 0.22%  55 with 0.08% drop rate > chance to have one of those enchantment is 0.16%  14 with 0.07% drop rate > chance to have one of those enchantment is 0.14% so, average numbers of try to get:  an enchantment of 0.11% drop rate is 454  an enchantment of 0.08% drop rate is 650  an enchantment of 0.07% drop rate is 714 with the prophecy "twice enchanted" you halve the numbers of try! Can I have a check on those numbers? ty  
" They won't tell the answer to questions like this. I've emailed before about a similar thing, in that case it was vaal corruptions and they didn't want to reveal wether the outcomes were of equal chance to get. It's probably something we have to figure out on our own. " Don't forget about the enchantment darkshrine too :) Last edited by kompaniet on Nov 10, 2018, 8:34:18 AM
