Sunshine Pack Drop Rates v1 - 1125 Boxes

Hey guys, here I prepared a nice report for you for the Sunshine Packs, which drop the Beam of Light monthly item. Thanks to the help of Leighton and Ziva I managed to collect 1125 boxes of data which is awesome!! :)

So let's look at the drops. We got first of all the Beam of Light special monthly item which drops pretty much in half of the boxes. The rate stands at 50.5% and is in line with previous months as well, so no surprises here.

Next up is the 80,000 gold dropping at 14.5% of the time so roughly 1-2 out of 10 boxes will have 80k gold in them. This adds up nicely and the gold can be spent on expensive equipment enchanting or clothing identification or astrals.

Sepulcrums and Mahras drop at a very similar rate of 10.7% and 10.4%, so 1 in 10 boxes will have these. Mount Training Whips at 12.4% are also at a similar drop rate. So these are all "times 2" items which are like fillers. It is not a huge amount to be happy about and not a small amount to be sad about :) just filling up space in the box.

Then we have the 4 big reward items. For these please bear in mind that the sample size is not high enough to have an accurate value, but as you see they all have a very small chance. The highest chance of the 4 are the 1 million gold and the 100 runestones at 0.7% and 0.5% chance, which means 1 in 200 boxes. Then we have the 100 Mahra and the Cloud Sailor Card, which are at 0.2% and 0.1% chance only, which means you need to open technically 500-1000 boxes to get one of these. Of course some people can get it faster or slower, this is just explaining the chances according to the statistics.

So check out the report I prepared for you guys below and you can enlarge it by clicking on it, it is a high quality picture. What do you think? Did something surprise you? Did you get the mount from the free boxes? Did you open 1000 boxes and not get the mount? Put your opinions below in the comments area.
