Most enemies drop coins when they are killed, and many also have a chance of dropping various items.

Chance of Obtaining a Drop[edit | edit source]

To determine the chance for at least one specific item to drop for a given number of enemies with the same chance of dropping said item, use the equation:

  • 1-(1-([drop chance]))^([number of enemies]).

To find how many enemies are needed to obtain a certain percent chance it has dropped at least once, use:

  • ln(1-[%chance in decimal (70% = .7 etc...)])/ln(1-[drop chance]).

Item Drops[edit | edit source]

For a list of all dropped items see Drops.

Some items are dropped by all enemies (except Meteor Heads) under certain conditions. Those can be found below.

Coin Drops[edit | edit source]

Most enemies will typically drop a few stacks of coins after dying. Enemies that drop a large number of coins have a higher chance of dropping multiple stacks.

The total amount of money dropped is calculated using a "base value", which depends on the enemy, and in expert mode, the "base value" is multiplied by 2.5 and weak enemies receive an additional multiplier to it in Hardmode and after Plantera has been defeated depending on their normal mode stats. A Skeleton for example, has a "base value" on normal mode of 1 Silver Coin, and on expert mode, 2 Silver Coin 50 Copper Coin in Pre-Hardmode, 2 Silver Coin in Hardmode, and 4 Silver Coin after Plantera has been defeated. The exact amount of money dropped is this number multiplied by 80-120%.

After the amount of money is determined, there are then a few chances for the number to be increased.

  • 20% chance of increasing by 5-10%
  • 10% chance of increasing by 10-20%
  • 6.67% chance of increasing by 15-30%
  • 5% chance of increasing by 20-40%

These increases are not mutually exclusive, are multiplicative, and an enemy may have its money increased several times. It is possible to get all increases at once, as each one is rolled individually. Additionally, the Midas debuff increases the money dropped by 10-49%. The average amount dropped, therefore, is 106.14% of the "base" value, or 137.45% if the enemy is afflicted with Midas. It is possible to get it increased even more by the Lucky Coin.

Console version Double Loot[edit | edit source]

Console versions of the game give players a chance to have double the loot drop from any enemy. The exact chance of this happening is 1/1000Verify. Players can easily see the effect when farming for more common loot such as souls or gel.
