What is the success rate of a bandit squad/creature squad dropping any loot? Is there a formula for it? So far I've killed 36 Tauntauns, 12 Bandits, 4 Bears, and 2 Wampas and still nothing! Thanks for all help!

Follow up: Is it every BANDIT has a 5% chance to drop something when killed, or the squad has a 5% chance to drop something when killed?

I do believe it's something like 5% chance for a bandit to drop a piece of its equipment, then it's a random piece of equipment (equal chance?), but I might be wrong on the exact number.

If an NPC has 1,2 or 10 items, there's a 5% chance he'll drop ONE item.

The more things he's carrying the less likely he'll drop a specific item you're hoping he'll drop.

Per creatures, there's a 5% chance they'll drop something, and then based on their "size" there's a few different % chances that item will be an egg.

So if I kill a Rancor for example, there's a 5% chance he'll drop a trophy or egg. Then, given he's a large(?) he's got I believe a 2% chance that the item dropped, is an egg. So your odds of a Rancor Egg are like some percentage of a percent, given how strong they are.
