This section describes how the Drop Rate template works. If you are looking for rules and guidelines on use, see FFXIclopedia:Drop Rate Policy.

{{Drop Rate|total drops|total kills}}
  • This template is used to collect and present drop rate data. It is intended to collect data from multiple users and keep a running total (new results are added to the existing totals rather than replacing them), thus becoming more accurate over time.
  • The drop rate is rounded to the nearest tenth, with a hovertext that displays the exact number of drops and kills and a message describing the data's current reliablity.
  • If the data is too low to be considered reliable (less than 50 kills), the drop rate will be colored gray and question marks (???) will be displayed instead of the drop rate. However, the drop rate can still be seen in the hovertext next to the number of drops and kills.
  • If the data is low, but not completely unreliable (less than 500 kills), the drop rate will simply be colored gray.
  • "100%" can be used as the "total drops" value to automatically display the drop rate as 100%.
