Default Quest Mushroom %?

I have read that its 8% without a mount and 5% with a mount. Does the length of the quest have any effect? I was doing a lot of shorter quests to get more quests done and chances, but Im at 175 quests and only 5 Mushrooms. Closer to 3%... am I just getting unlucky ATM?

The length of the quest does not effect the chance to find a mushroom for that particular quest, but shorter quests allow you more chances to find a mushroom.

Default Get this..

I am at a total of 88 quests and have not gained a single mushroom.
Correct me if I am wrong, but that does work out to 0% correct? Heh.

That just works out for you defeating the odds, Nobodey. While it may seem sad, are you riding a mount? % chance of getting something is also a chance of not getting something. You seem to have gotten the (100-3.2311742677852643549664402033983e^61)% chance of not getting a mushroom if riding a dragon mount - (100-2.9642774844752946028434172162224e^79)% if not using a mount.

Default Nods, riding a mount

I am riding a griffin mount, but still.. You would think I would get at least one.

The Griffin means you have a 5% chance of finding a mushroom, but also means you have a 95% chance of not finding one. It's just bad luck.

Took me about a week and a half to find my first mushroom.

Since people rarely post their rand() successes - I'll chip in.

I had two days of finding 3 mushrooms last week. I'm sure mentioning it will use up the last of my luck, but there you have it.

It was my understanding the slower you go the easier it is to find mushrooms. So, if you have no mount, you should find more, however, you will complete fewer quests and advance much slower. I don't remember where I read that but it was somewhere within the forums or some FAQ perhaps even one of the german sites. You might try it for a day or two to see?

Zimmi, the % chance with no mount is 8% with a 5% chance with a dragon mount. The dragon mount doubles your quests, so you actually have a greater chance of success in a single day than with no mount.
