Runescape Drop Rate Guide

This is a Runescape Drop Rate Ultimate Guide, which would help you to save some Runescape Gold and show you how to drop rate works in the game.

I have created this Guide explaining how the drop rate system works in Runescape. The great majority of Runescape players do not know how the drop rate system works or they have a wrong idea of it. So I hope this simple yet basic guide will help to have a better understanding on Drop Rates. Enjoy

Just about any Monster, Boss, Mini-Game or anything that has a chance of receiving an item has a Drop Table.

Runescape Drop Rate Guide

Always: This is a guaranteed drop.
Common: At most a 1 in 10
Uncommon: At most a 1 in 100
Rare: At most a 1 in 1,000
Very Rare: At most 1 in 10,000
Super Rare: Greater than a 1 in 10,000 chance
(Usually a 1 in 100,000 or a 1 in 1,000,000)

Items categorized under, Common / Uncommon / Rare / Very Rare/ and Super Rare, are all determined by the greatest chance of receiving them.

For example: If coins were classed as a common drop, that would mean that they can not exceed the 1/10 chance of receiving them. Jmods give each monsters a drop rate number for example the coins can be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10/10 but NOT 11/10. If it was 11 then it would not and can not be classed as common but instead another one of the 5 rarity.

A great way of explaining the rarity is with a dice. A dice with 10, 100, 1000, 10000, and 100,000 – 1/1,000,000 sides.
So for example lets use a dice that has 10 sides. You would need to land on the 1 specific side of a 10 sided dice in order to obtain the reward. Only 1 side on any dice may contain the drop and you must land on it in order to receive it
