There are two secrets to success. The second one is to never reveal all your secrets.

I vote both!

This thing will end when we reach ten thousand contraptions and contrivances. By then, the numbers would probably be accurate enough to simply round them up, then you could tell us if we got any wrong!


Or you can just tell people now and save the effort. (but waste the fun!)


Then again, I'm not sure what's the point of knowing them rarity values myself. It's just something where I can use maths instead of abandoning it. My courses don't and will never include it, sadly.



EDIT: Oh yeah! Found my earlier notes about it. The reason I started this was also because of C&C trading -- if you know how rare your item compared to another one, you can find a fair exchange rate...sorta.

From my experiences on the Beta and here I think it is completey random. But it will be fun to see if I'm wrong.

If it is completely random, that would mean we have 100%, fifty contraptions and contrivances. That's 2% chance for each.
