Lol those items are valuable, and we all worked hard to get them. But now there are much better items. Amulet of divine influence is pretty useless now at level 110. Or even 100. Unless your a death wizard, which even them may still be useless, then there's no need or point to get this amulet. I've never cared for it. In fact, I got both Morgane AND tier 1 rat amulet yet I am using a myth mastery from omen to diversify my play.

Also, imagine you had 6 wizards and you haven't gotten morgantges amulet on those other wizards. Wouldn't you wish the rates be increased to get them on the rest of wizards?
Got all amulets for all wizards. Was only missing one athame and a ring.

A Final count on amulets from Tartarus:

I'll include Hades type gear drops for comparison. It's total count on gear though and the crowns only went back three months so I'm gonna make a guess of about a third of the Hades gear drop numbers don't apply to the new amulet drop rates. For the x-x raw data, 1st x=total drops, 2nd x= actual run. So it shows the crowns chest drops numbers too.

Balance account:
Total drops raw: 9-1, 8-1, 8-1, 8-1, 7-1, 7-1, 7-1, 7-1, 7-1, 5-1, 7-1, 6-1, 5-1, 5-1, 6-1, 7-1, 6-1, 3-1, 5-1, 3-1, 3-1, 3-1, 2-1, 2-1
Total drops: 136
Total runs: 24 (+5 without chest)
13 Hats
19 Robes
10 Boots
14 Amulets (5 Divine, 2 fire, 1 ice, 1 storm, 1 myth, 1 life, 1 death)

Death, Fire, Storm account:
Total drops raw: 9-1, 8-1, 9-1, 10-1, 9-1, 8-1, 8-1, 8-1, 7-1, 6-1, 9-1, 7-1, 5-1, 6-1, 7-1, 5-1, 5-1, 6-1, 7-1, 8-1, 5-1, 3-1, 3-1, 3-1, 2-1, 2-1
Total drops: 165
Total runs: 26 (+3 without chest)
16 Hats
27 Robes
28 Shoes
47 Wands
8 Amulets (2 Divine (one on fire, one on death), 2 life, 2 death, 1 ice, 1 myth)

Myth, Life, Ice account:
Total Drops raw: 9-1, 8-1, 7-1, 7-1, 7-1, 7-1, 7-1, 7-1, 6-1, 7-1, 9-1, 7-1, 5-1, 5-1, 6-1, 5-1, 3-1, 7-1, 9-1, 9-1, 9-1, 9-1, 9-1, 9-1, 9-1, 9-1, 8-1, 3-1, 2-1
Total drops: 204
Total runs: 29
25 Hats
19 Robes
27 Shoes
44 Wands
12 Amulets (1 Divine (on ice), 3 myth, 2 balance, 2 ice, 2 storm, 1 fire, 1 death)

All amulets but about 3 were after the update (one divine happening before update)

Final Stats:
Total Hades gear drops minus wands because they're clearly a higher drop rate of all other gear
(estimation for post update): 184x.67 = 123
Total Amulet drops: 34-3 = 31
Total Divine drops: 8-1 = 7

Amulet drop to Hades gear drop ratio estimation: 1 to 4 (25%)
Chance of amulet being Divine: a little better than 1 to 5 (22% to 23%)
Divine drop to Hades gear drop ratio estimation: 1 to 20 (5.7%)
Divine drop to any gear ratio estimation: 1 to 70 (1.4%)

Other rough drop numbers:
35% chance of Hades gear drop
9% chance of Amulet drop
