Chest Finding (Mechanics)

From The Walkscape Walkthrough

Chest Finding is an attribute that changes the chance to find Chests on action completion.

Chest Finding Calculation

  1. Most activities have a roll on one or more chest tables.
    • In general, an activity that has a skill with a level requirement has a chance to give a chest for that skill.
  2. Chest finding percentage bonuses from attributes is calculated.
  3. These bonuses are added to the base chest finding multiplier that you have.
  4. The base chest drop chance (.4% or 1/250) is multiplied by the calculated chest finding multiplier.
  5. The modified chest finding odds are rolled on a loot table.

Note that we can quickly get a value by simply adding the total percent chest finding to 1 and dividing by 250.

Example with No Chest Finding Bonuses

If we want to go Forest Foraging with no equipment, and we complete a foraging action.

  1. Forest foraging is able to give a foraging chest roll in its loot tables.
  2. We have no equipment, so we have no percent chest finding bonus.
    • Chest finding bonus = 0.00
  3. We added our chest finding bonus to the base chest finding multiplier that you have.
    • 1.00 chest finding multiplier + 0.00 chest finding bonus = 1.00 calculated chest finding multiplier
  4. We multiply the base chest drop chance by the calculated chest finding multiplier.
    • 0.004 × 1.00 = 0.004 modified chest finding odds
  5. The modified chest finding odds are rolled on a loot table.
    • Our 0.004 modified chest finding odds gives us a 1/250 chance per action completed to receive a Foraging Chest.

Example with a Chest Finding Bonus

If we want to go Forest Foraging with a good quality Steel Sickle, and we complete a foraging action.

  1. Forest foraging is able to give a foraging chest roll in its loot tables.
  2. Our good Steel Sickle gives a +13.0% chest finding
    • Chest finding bonus = 0.13
  3. We added our chest finding bonus to the base chest finding multiplier that you have.
    • 1.00 chest finding multiplier + 0.13 chest finding bonus = 1.13 calculated chest finding multiplier
  4. We multiply the base chest drop chance by the calculated chest finding multiplier.
    • 0.004 × 1.13 = 0.00452 modified chest finding odds
  5. The modified chest finding odds are rolled on a loot table.
    • Our 0.00452 modified chest finding odds gives us a 1.13/250 chance per action completed to receive a Foraging Chest.
