Undead Vikings dropping Compasses?[edit source]

I don't think undead vikings can drop compasses, I've been having statues spawning undead vikings and jelly fish, and I've gotten over 30 jelly fish necklaces (1% drop, lowered further by statue). Versus no compasses, or any drops for that matter from undead vikings (2 percent, helmet/compass, further lowered by statute). Can anyone confirm further that statues for undead vikings are bugged and/or undead vikings, do infact, drop compasses? Thanks. Pazon123 (talk) 19:11, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

I've gone through all the code related to this problem, and the only thing to justify you not getting drops is the possibility that you aren't attacking them before they die. I'll add that the probability of getting a necklace, however, isn't actually lowered, but the chance for all armored viking drops for the hook, helmet, and compass drops to 1%, .5%, and .5% respectively. Maybe you're just having an unlucky day? 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 21:30, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Piranhas arent dropping any compasses[edit source]

Ive killed over 200 pirahnas and havent gotten a single compass. Is this a glitch or am i EXTREMELY unlucky (i am on PC version and are not using any statues)

Because of the low drop rate, (1.33% chance) It is likely that you are unlucky. I had to kill hundreds until I got one. Piranhas summoned by statues do still drop the compass, so using statues can speed up the process. (That is how I did it) – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 17:58, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
