Wrong output?[edit source]

I don't understand how the numbers 19.9, 2.88, and 23.1 were arrived at for the seeds achieved per hour. This page and Master Farmer both list 3000 as the highest amount of pickpockets per hour, and as far as I know to achieve an average loot value you multiply the drops per hour by the drop chance for each drop, so for example for ranarr seeds, you'd multiply the pickpocket chance of 1/302 to get a ranarr seed by 3000, giving you 9.93 ranarr seeds per hour, not 19.9. Or am I doing something completely wrong? - Xerxespersrex (talk) 15:59, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

PArt of it is rogue equipment which effectively doubles the rates. I don't know if that fully accounts for it though. Choppetalk 16:02, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
Oh you're right, I'm dumb (I'm even wearing rogue equipment right now), sorry about that! The rates are all right with rogue's equipment. Thanks. - Xerxespersrex (talk) 16:06, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Farming affecting seed drops[edit source]

I see there is a new factor of the type of seed being influenced by the players farming level. Is there any information to expand on this or a way to validate this information? Garzan (talk)Garzan

As far as I am aware, there hasn't really been data collected on it, it only changed the herb table. Before 71, there hasn't been much collected data so its unknown, post level 71 is exactly the same as pre-update, see here. and level 85 increased rates are also unknown.
