Default Heroic Essence possible bug

I have noticed several times now that I would get a heroic essence after farming a little while doing arena, but then go AFK land for a while and then start up again and the chances of getting one right away are pretty high chance. If anyone else wana test this out, please do so, I have noticed this not just two or three times but at least 6 times now.

Or am I the only getting this?

Edit:
Or is it just because I am farming Gobby Swamp solo?

I've noticed the same thing but assumed it's perception. I'd quit farming heroic for a while and come back and immediately get an essence. But like I said, probably perception. They're too random to test properly.

There are modifiers that alter drop chance when you go AFK based on what you do when gone. We will list them here:
  • Fix and eat a sandwich +15%
  • Watch TV -5%
  • Urinate +20%
  • Finish your homework +10%
  • Stand on your head for 5+ minutes +33%

In order to receive multiple bonuses you have to do the activity simultaneously, otherwise it defaults to the highest bonus. Example: Standing on your head for 5 minutes while urinating would give you a 1.2*1.33 or +59.6% bonus whereas finishing your homework and then eating a sandwich (prepared by yourself) would only result in a +15% bonus.

We believe these are working as intended.

Thanks for providing these formulae. Been trying to figure out the numbers for years but it's just so hard to test, you know?

I believe it is not working as it should sir. After spending a solid 20 minutes upside down, I discovered no essences for at least 8 minutes. You need to tweak your system!

I just want to know why you did that. Glitch said you have to be urinating on the sandwich that you're eating while standing on your head.

Just to clarify, should we do handstands or literally detach our heads and stand on them while enjoying a freshly soaked BLT and working calculus problems to get the maximum chance of essences? As long as someone else is doing it, either way is fine.

For slow effects, use the slow % but as a negative.

Just repeat for multiple effects.

DO NOT multiply by 1+slow% to get your new delay. 1*1.4 is not the same as 1/0.6 and your answer will be wrong.
