Why does Ch'ok Ak'ab not drop his rings every time

Ch'ok Ak'ab in the Pyramid of Fire, Xol Akmul drops rings that grant a stat bonus and a card, just like the Shrimpy and Dutchman items. Unlike the two other bosses, though, he drops his rings very rarely, whereas the other two bosses will drop one out of their many possible exclusive items every time. Why is Ch'ok Ak'ab different? Was this by design or was this a glitch? Were the 100% drop rates of the other two bosses by design or by glitch? If Ratbeard or someone can answer this, I'm very interested in hearing what you reply. Cheers!

gotta say i'm also glad you brought this up...when i first started out on my witch i was lucky to get 2 of the amazing aztecasaur rings, but only after 30+ battles or so,( got my first on my first run, so i knew there was more goodies in there...thus i spammed the second chance box as well)...was surprised how many max characters had never even seen or heard of the ring when i asked them if there were other types of the one i originally got...anyways i still love the rings, and from time to time I still hit that dungeon just to see if i get lucky again....

ch'ock ak'ab drops e ? lol i have run this so many times even tried the second chance chest quite a bit , only seen the rings 3 rings drop never seen the pet farming here doesn't seem worth it since he isn't so high . you would think the drop rate wouldn't be so nonexistent.

First of all, there is no reason to use that many emoticons. Second of all, he is defeated when you break the statues.

Yes, he is undefeatable. The treasure they are talking about comes from the chests after the fight with Ch'ok Ak'ab.
