- 100% drop - Most creatures have what is called a '100% drop', which they will drop every time they are defeated (for example bones or Demonic ashes).
- Main drop - This will be an item drawn from a creature's drop table based upon a random 'roll' (imagine a dice roll or roulette wheel).
- Second drop - Some creatures also have a second drop. The only second drops in the game consist of items such as charms used in Summoning, the Draconic visage from various Dragons, as well as starved ancient effigies and clue scrolls.
- Quest drops - in some instances, a creature will drop a quest-specific item (e.g. the unique bones required for the Rag and Bone Man or Fur 'n' Seek quests).
- Drop table - This is a list of all items that a creature could possibly drop. The percentage chance of receiving each item varies, often depending upon the item's relative value.
- Rare drop table - Occasionally, a creature can give access to a set of drop tables that hold more valuable items. To receive items from these drop tables, you must first "roll" to land on the Gem Table or Rare Table.
- Gem Table - This is the table accessed by all monsters that can access the rare drop table.
- Rare Table - This is the second table on the rare drop table, reached by rolling onto it from the Gem Table. Higher level monsters, above combat level 80 and Slayer level 50, can access it directly, without rolling the Gem Table first.
- Super Table - This is the third and rarest table on the rare drop table, reached by rolling from the Rare Table.
How the rare drop table worksEdit
When a creature is killed, the item(s) it drops are chosen from a list of possible drops, which is different for each creature. This drop is chosen at random, via a sort of "roll of the dice". Some items (usually the less valuable ones) are more likely to be dropped than others.
For the monsters that give access to the rare drop table, one of the "items" on the list of standard drops is actually a trigger that gives a second "roll" on another list of items: the rare drop table.
The rare drop table is actually a set of three tables, referred to as the Gem Table, the Rare Table, and the Super Table. When a player kills a creature and accesses the rare drop table, the "dice" are thrown onto the Gem Table. The player may get an uncut gem, a half of a key, and other select items, or they may roll onto the Rare Table. The Rare Table has more valuable items such as rune equipment or a dragon dagger, and a small chance to roll onto the third table, the Super Table. This is the rarest table and offers the most valuable items such as magic tree seeds or a dragon spear. For all tables, the less valuable items are more likely to be chosen than the expensive ones.
Note that not all valuable items are on the rare drop table. Some rare items that can only be dropped by a specific monster are simply on that monster's standard drop table. For example, a draconic visage is only attainable by killing dragons, so it cannot be on the rare drop table.
A ring of wealth has no influence on the rare drop table, although it will improve the odds of receiving a better gem should a player roll one. Wearing the ring is also required to obtain a Vecna skull.
Items on the rare drop tableEdit
The following is a list of items on the rare drop table. Note that due to the nature of the way the rare drop table is accessed, it can't be determined for sure what items are on the rare drop table. Wearing a ring of wealth will increase the chance of getting better gems from the rare drop table.
This is the first level of the tables, containing the least valuable rewards. Lower-level monsters, those that are under 80 combat and 50 Slayer, can only access the Gem Table directly.
