Enter your drop rate, kill count, and desired drops into the calculator to determine your probability of getting the drop.

## OSRS Dry Rate Calculation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the probability of getting a drop in OSRS.

Dry Rate = (1 - (1 - Drop Rate / 100)^Kill Count) * 100

Variables:

- Dry Rate is the probability of not getting the drop (%)
- Drop Rate is the drop rate of the item (%)
- Kill Count is the number of attempts or kills

To calculate the dry rate, use the drop rate and kill count in the formula to determine the probability of not receiving the drop after a certain number of attempts.

## What is Dry Rate Calculation in OSRS?

Dry rate calculation refers to the process of determining the likelihood of not receiving a specific drop after a certain number of attempts in Old School RuneScape (OSRS). Understanding your dry rate can help manage expectations and provide a clearer picture of how RNG (random number generation) affects your gameplay.

## How to Calculate Your Dry Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate your dry rate using the given formula.

- First, determine the drop rate of the item you are farming.
- Next, record the number of attempts or kills you have made.
- Use the formula from above: Dry Rate = (1 – (1 – Drop Rate / 100)^Kill Count) * 100.
- Finally, calculate the dry rate by plugging in the values.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
