Possible Mount Olympus Glitch

Hello Kingsisle,

So recently, I've been farming mount Olympus on my storm. I don't mean this as a complaint for not getting gear or anything like that, but I've noticed it seems impossible to get ONE piece of gear. I've farmed the dungeon around 25 times and got the whole Zeus set(except the hat) around 5 times and some extra Zeus wands here or there, and the full senator set around 10 times. I expected that since there are 8 possible pieces of gear Zeus can drop, and that he drops one each time, there's a 1/8 chance that I'd get the hat. I also see a lot of people running around with the full set and hat. I don't mean this is a complaint but if I got the entire Zeus set except the hat 5 times, I would think something is wrong with the drop system. I hear the drop rate there is better than WaterWorks and I had a much easier time in waterworks and got full gear. I don't imagine it would be THIS hard to get one piece of gear. Especially seeing that many others have it. I'm sorry if an article like this doesn't belong in Halston's Laboratory but I want to know if something is wrong with the drop system in Olympus.

Thank you,
Zachary Titansword

It's not a glitch. All drops are random. Some people never get the gear they want. There is nothing wrong here... it's just one of those frustrating aspects of the game.

Maybe hats are cursed for you, like me. I still have yet to get that blasted hat, the WW hat, or the Hades hat. The only advice I can offer you is keep on farming.
(Maybe the hat drop rate is a little lower, but I can't say)
