Cool, glad to know it wasn't just me who wasn't seeing pinatas all the time...

Have yet to see a hamburger though... :-0

Interesting stats!

I'm not sure how efficient you want to be, or how easy it is to control all of your accounts, but if you have 4 Staves(?) of Herding, one on each character, I find it easier to run all 4 to Whimsy in seperate games, and then run each individually. Then as soon as you leave one game and the timer starts, you can switch to another account, play it, and so on. I find it speeds up my runs a bit.

Updated Stats


43 Whimsyshire runs in total. (11 MP1, 9 MP2, 2 MP4, 2 MP6, and 19 MP6 runs where I didn't bother with NV)
17 Pinata
6 Uniques

2 Hamburgers
4 Spectrum

Chance of Pinata 39%
Chance of Unique 14%

Drop % of hamburger 2.9% (So 1.2% in total, after taking into account the chance of pinata to appear)
Drop % of spectrum 16.7% (So 2.3% in total, after taking into account the chance of unique to appear)



I had some pretty bad luck this weekend. Got pinata less than 30% of the time.
And... it seems that spectrums are easier to find than hamburgers, even though the pinata appears way more than uniques.
Futhermore all my hamburgers and spectrums were found on MP1 or MP2.


Just a last note.... the price of high dps hamburgers went way down the last week or so en EU server.

So I am farming Whimsy with my DH even tho he is only p33, he is way faster farming than my p73 barb. Only doing MP3, since it is the most efficient, and the DH is still kinda squishy.....10 runs so far, just one spectrum...kinda sucks, but he is gaining levels pretty fast..I only run solo account, any suggestions for upping the drop rate?

1. Run with three friends and have them invite everyone when someone finds a Pinata or Purple.
2. Keep runs as fast as possible. See how long one takes, and try to beat it. Short runs = More Purps/Pinatas = Better chance for loot
3. More accounts :)

Here are some of my stats...MP1 PLevel 28-36 DH.....Base 250 or so MP.

50 runs in total.....

11 Various Rares (Team Unicorn showed up twice)
24 Pinatas
1 Spectrum
0 Hamburger

48% of Pinata
22% Rare Spawn

2% Drop Spectrum
0% Drop Hamburger- which is wrong since none dropped.

Gonna do 50 more with my Barb and see how/if stats differ.

You have much better luck than I do.
Both unique and pinata numbers you have are a couple % better than mine.
