The intent of this thread is to determine the chances of getting any given colored Philosopher's Cache (or GoFusion Charm) when you open the original Cache. If you've opened a large number of original Caches lately, let us know what mix you got! The more data we collect the closer we'll come to the actual percentages.

I've recently reset the data again to allow for the arrival of the Philosopher's Cache: zOMG, so let's build our data pool back up! Remember, if you want to give me data, please don't just tell me how many zOMG Caches you got, or just how many Heart Charms; I need to know all of the numbers to be able to use them.

Here's the data from opening a total of 3,203 base Philosopher's Caches:

544 Aquamarine
518 zOMG
499 Emerald
397 Sapphire
311 Amethyst
269 Garnet
197 Ruby
187 Topaz
122 Diamond
119 Gold
046 Platinum
034 Heart Charms




There's too little data to bother with a Partial Pie of the most recent, but this feature will return if we get enough data to warrant it. It's worth noting that we seem to have had slim pickings with Platinum Caches and Heart Charms lately...is this just a run of bad luck or the actual new odds? Only more data will tell...



Can't get enough of gathering probability data? Check out these other threads!

Check out this thread if you want to know how many times you're likely to fail when crafting a formula!
These were the ones I have crafted and opened on my own.

The intent of this thread is to determine the chances of getting any given colored Philosopher's Cache when you open the original Cache. If you've opened a large number of original Caches lately, let us know what mix of colored bags you got! The more data we collect the closer we'll come to the actual percentages.

Having started this work in another thread, we've already come fairly far. Here's the data from opening a total of 833 base Philosopher's Caches:

User Image 171 Aquamarine
126 Emerald
111 Amethyst
107 Sapphire
88 Garnet
69 Topaz
67 Ruby
39 Diamond
34 Gold
21 Platinum

Last updated 6/12/12 Constipated did a thread like this and his was basically the same just a few differances but close to this . So I guess it is part luck and part quantity .

Let's see if we can gather enough data to get that poor little Platinum bar past the lip of the bag! xd

I've added these into the figures and graph in the first post. (Zzyli, I assume colors that don't have a number next to them are ones you haven't gotten any of yet, since you do have the number 1 next to others?)

Yeah, his thread is actually the thread I mentioned this work starting in. CT contacted me and said I ought to make a new thread because he probably wasn't going to be updating the opening post of that thread any further.

Yes, that is correct. Possibly I should swap over to a tally system, or a list system or something. This was more for my personal curiosity.
