Oyster drop rate[edit source]

Hi,

created an account just to discuss this.

As of right now, the only source for the drop rate of opening oysters is one person that that opened 1,657 oysters about a year ago, where he stated that the drop rate was 1/100 for Oyster pearls.

Recently I did some drift net fishing and got 1015 oysters from it, so I decided to just open all of them. The results were the following:

- 786 Oyster pearl - 229 Empty oyster - 0 Oyster pearls


I was surprised, so I bought more oysters to end up with a total of 2,000 oysters, and the final results were:

- 1571 Oyster pearl - 429 Empty oyster - 0 Oyster pearls

So I'm starting to doubt that it's even possible to get Oyster pearls through this method, or at least the drop rate stated here is wrong, as the probability of me not getting any, with the currently stated drop rates, is about 0.0000001863%.

I've changed the drops table on the page accordingly.
I'm also going to include 2000 oysters opened for 1559 pearl, 441 empty, and 0 pearls: https://reddit.com/r/2007scape/comments/a0ndae/i_opened_2000_oysters_to_check_the_of_pearl_vs/, to make the data more reliable. If anyone does a significant opening of at least 1000 oysters, feel free to drop the results on this talk page. Joeytje50 talk Santa hat.png 02:29, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
