Capitalization error[edit source]

I find it funny that that the capitalization on "Polish" technically it refers to the country Poland. Lol —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kork3 14 (talkcontribs) at 02:41, 23 December 2013‎ (UTC)

Drop Chance[edit source]

Is the 2% drop chance confirmed for certain? I have been farming the armored skeletons and after 350 in expert world I still have not managed a single armor polish. I know that RNG does not guarantee 1 every 50, but still, I have technically missed out on 7 of them from a purely statistics point of view. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 16:37, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

All of the values are taken from the source code (in this case, the line is if (Main.rand.Next(100) == 0 || Main.expertMode && Main.rand.Next(100) == 0)), so unfortunately you're probably having bad luck. I always find it easier to get Armor Polish in the Dungeon due to high spawn rates there, though, so you might find better luck there if you haven't tried already. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 20:12, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
By the way, where is the source code? Is there a page with it or something like that? I'd like to look it for myself. TIA --Ozpl (talk) 20:38, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
The source code can be obtained via decompiling Terraria.exe. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 00:45, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

drop rate[edit source]

are you sure that it's 1% and not less? i could get items with the same (and even less) drop rate without too much problems. this item however is annoying. I've killed at least 200 armored skeletons! also i want it pre-plantera so i can make the ankh-sheild, i just need this item. so... yeah... 1%? more like 0.00[excessively long amount of zeros]01%! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jameswardm (talkcontribs) at 21:09, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

See the above discussion. As an aside, do not fill the page with repeating characters, it makes pages more difficult to read and edit. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 22:22, 31 May 2018 (UTC)
