Edit - I don't see anything in the blog that says the event tokens only come from the leprechauns. Is that why I'm not getting any from bushes/monsters?
I have my event item % at 80 for one of my profiles and 40% for my other profile. It doesn't seem the event buff makes a difference. I am getting 3 tokens per leprechaun. It this how many everyone is getting from them? Has anyone noticed the frequency/drop rate of the leprechauns? That is the only thing I didn't count.
Thanks! 🍀

I appreciate you trying to help. Have you gotten event tokens from bushes/monsters? If the answer is no then that's part of the answer I am looking for. That we only get these from the leprechauns.
I believe you are correct that this question has been asked before.

I don't think using a quest buff is going to help with my question. I'm not concerned about getting the "special" leprechauns or other event quest items. Just concerned with the event tokens. 🍀🙂

@ArmyMomOkc, after re-reading your problem i figured it out ok...bear with me now

ok so we have 8 hatted Lep's, and 3 are stations, which we collect beer/gold/four-leaf clovers from the un-hatted Lep's, nothing else should be giving out tokens etc, ok, the other 5 lep's are quests stilts,dye,hats,gold and something else i can;t remeber ok,

so the 3 leps that are stations you need to go to them after you get them to 100% ok, and thats where you get tokens ok

you do also get quest tokens from the event folk for completing quests too ok

.......from what you are describing sounds like a glitch/bug because i have not experienced this i recommend you send a ticket ok matey hope this helped

The Gold, Beer and items for the 3rd turn-in station do only drop from the Leprechauns that spawn while you're whacking bushes.

They don't drop from bushes like other event items.

Hope this helps to better explain it. (Taken from the wiki)

Leprechaun Drops

When you have only the first station unlocked the Leprechauns will drop gold every time. Once you unlock two stations, they'll have a 50% chance to drop gold AND a 50% chance to drop beer. Once you have three stations, they'll have a 33% chance to drop each turn-in item.

Because each of these chances are independent of each other, it's possible to have a leprechaun drop nothing, but it's also possible to have a leprechaun drop multiple items. In the end it will average out to 1 drop per leprechaun.

Note: Having Quest Item Trinkets equipped will increase the Leprechaun drop rate.

Here's a table for all the mathies out there:

1 Station Unlocked: (1 Leprechaun captured)

100% 3 Leprechaun Gold

(1.0 * 1) = 1 drop per leprechaun

2 Stations Unlocked: (3 Leprechauns captured)

25% Nothing
25% 3 Gold
25% 3 Beer
25% 3 Gold + 3 Beer

(.25 * 0) + (.25 * 1) + (.25 * 1) + (.25 * 2) = 1 drop per leprechaun

3 Stations Unlocked: (5 Leprechauns captured)

29.6% Nothing
14.8% 3 Gold
14.8% 3 Beer
14.8% 3 Clovers
7.4% 3 Gold + 3 Beer
7.4% 3 Gold + 3 Clovers
7.4% 3 Beer + 3 Clovers
3.7% 3 Gold + 3 Beer + 3 Clovers

(.296 * 0) + (.148 * 1) + (.148 * 1) + (.148 * 1) + (.074* 2) + (.074 * 2) + (.074 * 2) + (.037 * 3) = 1 drop per leprechaun

Here's one more tidbit taken from the wiki (2013 St pat's event)

Trinket Modifier
[Dev] Justin Stocks states via in-game chat "The only thing that affected the Lep drops were +Quest Item trinkets, which is ironic because those don't normally work on event drops." This means you are able to equip Quest Items Trinkets to effect the drop rate but Void Trinkets (Less Nothings) will not.

Your welcome Barb. I have fun digging around to find these little forgotten about tidbits. Glad if it helped somewhat. It certainly gives us something to experiment with. But we should keep in mind that the last post is from 2013 and things could have changed between then and now. :-)
