Titan Quest Arcane Formula Farming Data by ClosetChemist

Arcane Formula Farming Data

About 2 months ago, I posted some data regarding farming runs I did for Arcane Formulas in Normal Mode. I recently finished doing the same with Epic and Legendary runs and decided to post the data. (see the posts below.)

I performed 100 runs on each of the bosses which seemed to have decent drop rates for formulas: the Telkines, Typhon, Hades, and the Secret Passage. I also included the Hydra in Legendary. I also tried two others (Olive Grove in Normal and Polyphemus in Legendary) that I did not include in the data because the drop rates were so low. My runs were done in the following manner:
-Used my DW Harbinger for the runs (Level 58-59 for Normal Runs, Level 66-69 for Epic/Legendary Runs)
-Started each set of runs from the nearest rebirth shrine.
-Bypassed the mobs leading up to the boss as often as possible and focussed on killing the boss only.
-Exited after every 10 runs to reset the seed so that the results represented an average of different seeds. (This also let me break things up into 20-30 minute sessions that I could do when I had time and felt like doing some runs.)

From the data, I would draw several conclusions:
-There are definitely patterns as to which formulas you are likely to get from different bosses.
-Some formulas seem to be more common than others. I got 10 or more of 6 different formulas, but there were 3 that I did not get at all. [I did not get Molten Orb, Lyre of Apollo, or Blood of Ares in these runs. In fact I have never gotten a copy of Blood of Ares.]
-There did seem to be a seed effect. On most 10-run sets I tended to get 1 or 2 formulas. Occasionally I would see 4 or more in a single set. (The most I saw in a single run was 3.)
-While this data may be useful for predicting which formulas to expect from a particular run, farming for a particular formula can still be frustrating. [I originally started this whole thing to find Touch of the Fool which I needed to make other artifacts. I did not get one until the 97th run on normal Megalesios.

Hope you find the data useful. (In the three posts below.) My farming days are over for a while. I’m going to concentrate my TQ time now on trying out different builds and working through the Lilith mod.
