Thread: Loot Cap Data

  1. #1

    Default Loot Cap Data

    So if anyone else cares to post their data, I think it'd be cool to see. I went back to December and parsed all of my main's logs via Notepad++ find in files features. I used lich logs because it has the date and character name in the file path.

    1. Copy logs from desired date range to their own folder.
    2. Search the first string "had nothing of interest" in Notepad++ find in files feature.
    3. In the search results, right click and choose collapse all.
    4. Expand your most recent search and copy the summary lines (should look something like this C:\Users\Blazar\Desktop\Jan Logs\Chirakk\2020-12-01-1.log (47 hits))
    5. Paste into spreadsheet, then split text to columns to get it down to just the character name, date, and just the number of hits. For the date, I split it into 4 columns delimited by hyphen, then recombined the day/month/year so I could avoid the additional file number.
    6. Create a table with one entry for each date you want to match.
    7. Do a SUMIF formula in the next column of your table to add your hits columns together if it matches the date in your new table. Could add another filter to do this by character if you want. I chose to aggregate across my 3 mains.
    8. Repeat steps 2-7 for the string "you search the".
    9. Calculate %

    Early and mid December would have been mostly bandits and some loot hunting underage critters for skins and loot (Den of Rot, Treekin, Shadow Valley which is likely the huge spike)). On 12/23, I started hunting SoS with some bandits mixed in. Most of January has been SoS, with a sprinkling of bandits, more so the last few days.

    I'd also posit that my play time did not increase, as it was already pretty long, but more creatures were searched as less loot was found. I pretty much always hunt to 30% encumbrance or injury and my looter has max strength, enhancives, and always runs an encumbrance potion. I can generally hold 8-10 boxes, plus what the disk will hold, before I get encumbered and end my hunt.

    I plan on hunting somewhere I've never hunted before, like the Rift or something, this weekend just in case it is "loot pressure", but will keep it as SoS and bandits today. I also barely played the last 2 days, and so far this morning it doesn't look any better.

    Well, this data isn't right either because apparently the messaging isn't always "had nothing of interest" when they don't have anything at all.

    You search the veiled sentinel.
    You discard the sentinel's useless equipment.
    He didn't carry any silver.
    He had nothing else of value.

    And the 'had nothing else of value' almost always appears, except when you find a box. So the % with no loot is actually much, much worse.

    Donít worry guys, the price of everything will totally come down because of this. Itís for our own good and we should be grateful to Estild and Naijin for making GS more fun and interesting by doing this.
