    After studying the drop rates of items in the nether and testing about 1,000 voter crate keys to reveal the probable chances of receiving each reward, I've turned my attention to a relatively new feature on this server which is the random generation of coal, iron, gold, lapis, and redstone ore when either stone or cobble forms. This was a really easy process to set up. I simply let both of my stone generators fill to their capacity of 1,728 blocks and then harvested the lot, recording how many of each ore was yielded before allowing the generation of stone to continue. To get a good sample size, I harvested 55,296 total blocks. Below are the results:

    In summary, it looks like Iron, Redstone, and Gold ores are about equally likely to spawn and Lapis just slightly more. Averaged, the four colorful minerals are very close to 0.03% chance to spawn and it could be possible that they are intended to have equal chances to generate. Coal is quite common in comparison and you can expect to be seeing coal almost 6x more than the other ores combined.

    Well, now we know! Happy Skyblocking!

    These are somewhat surprising results! You must have a lot of dedication to do such analysis

    This wasn't too much trouble since I like ores and we all need stone. It only takes a few minutes to clear 1,728 stone with a haste II beacon nearby anyway :)

    This is super cool! I've been mining ores a lot recently and was curious about these numbers. Thank you!

    Chance of getting certain rewards in mob arena? Item drop rates of certain mobs?

    oof. I don't know if I could tolerate that much /ma

    Any particular mobs/item drops you had in mind? This might also be more tedious that I can handle.

    Zombie pigmen

    You just need a pigmen spawner and afk it for 24 hours. Then you kill all of them and see what you got.

    I'd be willing to work on a mob arena rewards rate if others were interested in helping out.

    How would you keep track of all that Ally? You would need lots of help from other players and it might be hard to get to get consistently accurate data. I suppose I could help with a few rounds of /ma if you want to spearhead this one :)

    Perhaps, Bill. I don't have many spawners and they are busy making snow right now!
