    The Greater Glabrezu in UnderSigil

    After you return to Sigil from the Planes you will be able to find Greater Glabrezu in UnderSigil, the "dungeon" under the Clerk's Ward. These tough monsters are worth 70,000 experience points each, and when you kill them they drop either a large amount of money or a powerful item.

    I ran some tests to figure out exactly how likely you are to find a Greater Glabrezu each time you go into UnderSigil, where they might spawn and what chances you have of finding each item they can drop.

    An easier to read HTML version of this can be found here;

    http://www.sorcerers.net/Games/Torment/Platter/crap/glab.htm

    ----------------------------
    Items

    When you kill a Greater Glabrezu it will usually only drop Copper Commons. However, sometimes they will drop one of five rare or unique items instead, all of which are very powerful. For this test I made a script to spawn 1000 Greater Glabrezu and keep track of which of the six item possibilities each ended up with. I ran it three times.

    Run 1
    Item : Number of GG to have item : Percentage of GG to have item
    Copper Commons : 837/1000 : 83.7%
    Aegis of Torment : 52/1000 : 5.2%
    Bell's Shield : 39/1000 : 3.9%
    Ring Zero : 37/1000 : 3.7%
    Umei Kaihen : 26/1000 : 2.6%
    Heaven and Earth : 9/1000 : 0.9%

    Run 2
    Item : Number of GG to have item : Percentage of GG to have item
    Copper Commons : 853/1000 : 85.3%
    Aegis of Torment : 49/1000 : 4.9%
    Bell's Shield : 38/1000 : 3.8%
    Ring Zero : 27/1000 : 2.7%
    Umei Kaihen : 18/1000 : 1.8%
    Heaven and Earth : 15/1000 : 1.5%

    Run 3
    Item : Number of GG to have item : Percentage of GG to have item
    Copper Commons : 857/1000 : 85.7%
    Aegis of Torment : 46/1000 : 4.6%
    Bell's Shield : 42/1000 : 4.2%
    Ring Zero : 21/1000 : 2.1%
    Umei Kaihen : 19/1000 : 1.9%
    Heaven and Earth : 15/1000 : 1.5%

    ----------------------------
    Spawn Probability

    Actually finding a Greater Glabrezu in UnderSigil can be difficult. Sometimes you can go down there ten times in a row without finding one, other times you may find two at once. To test just how likely it is that a Greater Glabrezu will be spawned each time you enter UnderSigil I made a script to simulate entering it 1000 times and keep track of how many Greater Glabrezu should have spawned each time.

    Number of GG : Number of runs to have that many GG : Percentage of runs to have that many GG
    0 GG : 663/1000 : 66.3%
    1 GG : 274/1000 : 27.4%
    2 GG : 58/1000 : 5.8%
    3 GG : 5/1000 : 0.5%
    4 GG : 0/1000 : 0%
    5 GG : 0/1000 : 0%
    6 GG : 0/1000 : 0%

    ----------------------------
    Spawn Points

    [​IMG]

    This is a map of UnderSigil with all the possible Greater Glabrezu spawn points on it. The three different colors indicate that if you find a Greater Glabrezu at one point you should look for more at the other points of the same color and not bother checking the other colored points during that run in UnderSigil. Finding a Greater Glabrezu at one point does not guarantee that there will be a Greater Glabrezu at the other points of the same color, but simply that those will be the only other possible points during that run for a Greater Glabrezu to spawn.

    Though I always heard that there were Greater Glabrezu's in Unersigil I never once encountered one (let alone two or three), I must have kept hitting the 66.3%.

    Thanks for this info Platter, next run through Ps:T those Glabrezu's are going to be hunted down and probably drop copper commons. Lol :confused:

    [​IMG] Well, you'd be credited, of course, same as with everything else of yours I have up. I didn't see this linked to anywhere on your site. It doesn't really matter to me if I link to it, but outside links are a major pain in the ass because people keep changing urls and domains and I keep getting reports of "dead links" which are not really my fault. That's why I like to put up stuff that isn't likely to be subject to change.

    So, if you leave UnderSigil, then immediately pop back in the chance of the GG spawning is reset?
