    There was, what, 45 days in the event? And the projected odds of getting IX or X, from a sample of probably n=200 or 300 compiled from various forum posts, was something on the order of 0.33%

    So there's a better than 73% chance of not getting either IX or X through the course of the entire event - you're not unlucky

    With one VIP account and one Premium account I was rolling for 3 cards a day per server (8 servers?). So 24 cards per day times at least 30 days (was it really 45 days?) and I rolled exactly ONE card X, but I also had a card X in one of my starting rolls where you got 6 cards I think. Neither one on my main server though.

    Two VIP accounts, rolling on two servers, I didn't get any IX or X.

    hmm,

    also VIP. I guess I was getting 2 cards per roll? I was only able to roll once per day.

    Premium only, so only 8 cards / day and no luck at all - some really got lucky, some did not. That´s the way it is.

    In another thread we posted card stats. Of course, that requires a search.

    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...llection-Stats

    Here are the percentage chances that some players had on getting a IX or a X.

    FAQ = 0.69%
    Frogger1234 = 0.51%
    MindCakes = 0.38%
    ComfortablyNumb = 0.37%
    Moomooprincess = 0.36%
    RedOrm = 0.13% (rough guess)
    elraido = 0.00%
    Seikojin = 0.00%
    Uska = 0.00%

    These are roughly my percentages of getting cards.

    Card I = 11.35%
    Card II = 12.33%
    Card III = 10.87%
    Card IV = 13.78%
    Card V = 12.14%
    Card VI = 14.88%
    Card VII = 13.11%
    Card VIII = 11.17%
    Card IX = 0.18%
    Card X = 0.18%

    My Total for getting either the IX or X = 0.36%, 1 in 275 cards

    My odds of getting a IX = 1 in 550 cards

    My odds for getting a X = 1 in 550 cards

    I had been posting since March 17 or so that I thought the odds were 1 in 500

    001-996 = Card 1 thru Card VIII
    997-998 = Card IX
    999-1000 = Card X

    All I did was roll the 20 sided die every day on every server. That was it. Logging in and out. Roll daily Silver roll, do the D20. Log off. Maybe check the AH.

    Got bored. Did chores. Woke up the next day. Rinsed and repeated.

    March 10 through April 6. Minus March 11 because it did not work then, that is 27 days.

    If you were a VIP you received 7 on the first day, and two each day after on each server. That means you should have at least 59 cards on each server.

    Premiums received 6 on the first day, and one each day. That is 32 cards on each and every server.

    I even got up early yesterday morning before the server was shut down and was able to score a card X on Ghallanda.

    If you had 22 accounts(if you all remember that thread), you would have earned 704 cards each on eight servers for a whopping 5,632 cards. You should have received TWENTY card IXs and Xs across all servers.

    2 vip accounts, 4 f2p accounts rolled on every account every day on every server No card 9 or 10 here. But even in game I swear my digital dice are broken because I seem to roll between a 1 and a 8 just about on every attack and on the daily dice roll I always seem to roll a 1

    I'm premium, so only one roll per day. Did that every day and never saw a ix or x on any server. More than a bit bummed about that, but then again, not exactly a life-ending tragedy either.
