would a yoyo, a yoyo bag and palladium armor pair well? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 00:39, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Palladium armor[edit source]

I would like to know how to get Palladium armor in a world where there is none. Killerhansen08 (talk) 03:46, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

You can obtain alternative ores by fishing up and opening crates. Wooden Crates have a 7.14% (1/14) chance to contain 1-7 Palladium Bars and the same chance to contain 8-20 Palladium Ore (worth 2.67-6.67 Palladium Bars). Iron Crates have a 16.66% (1/6) chance to contain 5-14 Palladium Bars. Note that Golden Crates do not contain Palladium.
Therefore, if you were very lucky and always obtained the full drop, you would need at least 7 Wooden Crates or 4 Iron Crates. However, this extremely unlikely. Let's assume a more realistic situation:
You have a Fishing Power of 100% (not too unlikely; reachable, for instance, with Mechanic's Rod, Fishing Potion, rain, dawn or dusk, and Gibbous moon). Wooden Crates are exactly twice as common as Iron Crates (in reality, they are something less than 1% off). RNG does not mess around and guarantees the average (in crate fishing chance, crate content chance, as well as content amount chance).
With these assumptions, you would need about 69 Iron Crates and 349 Wooden Crates to accumulate the required 54 Palladium Bars (sparing you the math). Please take this with a grain of salt, though – this is really just the very average case. You might need many less or many more. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 18:01, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
