So I'm lighting the signal fires for the highland lord. In order to 'beat' Twin Peak, I need to search the pantry, however when I do I fail. A little research on the wiki suggests I need an Item Drop boost of +50%. This seems insane, with all my current gear I can only get 10%. Where can I, as a level 9 Sauceror, get gear/effects to boost my Item Drop to 50%?
One of the main things to note about this requirement is that it counts Food drops, not just Item drops. Therefore the easiest way to do this is to get an increase to your Food drop rate, which is generally easier than the regular Item Boost Drop.
Increased booze drop rates, do not count towards this total and neither do Fairy-type familiars. However, familiar equipment with increased Item drop rate (like the Chiptune Guitar), will count.
This page on the official Wiki has several options for increasing your drop rate, but here are some of the easiest for this purpose:
To make up the last 20%, you can use either equipment or buffs from various sources. This will partially depend on how much Meat you have to spend in the Mall and what kind of gear you currently have access to.
This is all gear that you should have access to at this point from quests from the Council or from guild quests:
If you haven't done the above quests already and/or don't have those items, these are quick and (fairly) cheap Booze/Food options. Obviously prices and availability may vary on the Mall:
There are a few tricks you can do here. The first is to know that the needed item drop also includes food bonuses,
This means that getting Brother Flying Burrito's Blessing from the level 6 quest is a huge bonus here as its +30% food drops.
