Notes and trivia

  • It once had the flavor text "Still flying...", a reference to Firefly. After a terrible day, the captain of the titular ship observes, "We're still flying."[1]
  • The drop rate of this pet is roughly 0.1%, or one in every thousand kills. Due to their rarity, they can sell for fairly large amounts of gold on the Auction House. The table below shows the cumulative probability of getting at least one after a number of kills.
Probability of at least one drop in X kills
Number of Kills 100 288 401 693 1386 2302 2995 4603 9206
Cumulative Probability 9.5% 25% 33% 50% 75% 90% 95% 99% 99.99%
Neither the drop rate nor cumulative probability increases based on the number of monsters you have already killed.
