Do we have strong evidence that the chance for this to drop a Tisiphone Edge is 1/512? There doesn't seem to be any other item with a drop rate that high in any game, and the drop rates for weapons such as the Lachesis' Rule seem to have gone down in Dark Dawn, so this seems a bit odd.

I have always thought it was 1/256. I never got it though. Chinkycandie 05:00, 16 June 2011 (CDT)
I assumed since this monster's stats are given in such detail, someone has been kind enough to hack the game somehow and found all the information on it that way. It is definitely the hardest item in DD to find, although repeated Djinn-spams have netted me a couple. Phimi 19:39, 16 June 2011 (CDT)
I would have assumed that, too. However, when all of the stats were initially added to this page, the drop rate was listed as 1/128. It was changed only to be consistent with the Crossbone Isle page, and that was the only difference between the two. So the question is, was the person who added the chance to this page correct, or was the person who added the chance to the Crossbone Isle page correct? The data on this page was all added at its creation by Mercury Mech, who has a history of being a great source for detailed information over the years. On the other hand, digging through the edits of the original Crossbone Isle page, when enemy data for Dark Dawn was originally added there, the 1/512 chance was added as its own edit not even by a registered member at all but by an anonymous contributor, whose IP address only has four edits registered, all to that page at that time. I hadn't looked at all this in this much depth until now, but seeing how the information was originally added to this wiki, and considering how improbable it is, I believe we can safely assume that Mercury Mech's information was correct, and I will edit all relevant pages accordingly, at least until someone else can come up with concrete proof one way or the other.
