Okay, I see, the variables are based on stress testing by a Monster Hunter Freedom player, the formula is only as accurate as how far he was willing to test each parameter.
I was under the impression that someone emulated the game and gave out source code.
It's whatever but in the end all you need to know is that if you use a fire sword on ludoroth you'll kill it faster than if you used a iron sword.
I'm surprised people haven't emulated yet. Then we could get some 100% accurate percentage counts on drop rates. The ones on the wiki apparently rely on a guide published in Japan.
Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
