Those who know me, know I've been farming Miranda for quite awhile. And until this moment Captain Blood's Jacket was the only drop of this dungeon to elude me.
In all the times I farmed Miranda, I never used Treasure Bath or any other doubloon; I was saving those for more "important" dungeons.
So, thanks to a recent post saying that TB lowered chances of getting a drop, I decided to use TB in the Blood battle ( how much lower than zero could my chances get? )
Wellll my friends, I used TB and in my second run of the night I FINALLY got Blood's Jacket!
I'm hoping this proof will bury that rumor of TB lowering drops once and for all!
But it probably won't.

Good job. Blood's jacket is one of the most OP gear items in the game and can usually make even the hardest battle manageable. I have a few friends who are still out there farming for it, so hopefully some of your good luck will rub off on them. Congrats :)

Thanks to all.
Yes, I wanted players to know that using TB did NOT reduce my chances, or even boost my chances. It was just the luck of the moment.
If you really want a drop, you mustn't give up ( or believe in superstitions. )

Highest Congrats! Glad you finally got it after forever. On a side note, now we know that treasure bath actually increases drop rates, so we should use it!

SWEEEEEEEEETTT!!!

Way to go and congrats!

As I always say...

Perpetual, piratical persistance (and pre-planned periods of praying and patty-rubby) plainly proves that players' pummeling pig-headed packs of punks perpetuates the plausibility of players packing in a plethora of pretty powerful pirate plunder and potent prizes, that produce plenty of playful pandemonium!

Have fun with your pirates' new toy

Oh No! No, no, no. Don't start that, my point in doing that was to prove it didn't hurt your chances. Please, we don't want another myth!

Multo Grazie! But since Captain Blood is his proper name and not a description, shouldn't it be Capitano Sangue?

And I heard that you have had similar luck in getting Blood's Jacket off his not-so-cold corpse, well done!

Congratulations Anecorbie! I am really happy that you finally got Captain Blood's Jacket! Believe me, I do feel your pain in farming Miranda for it. I farmed Miranda for years and years until my Jacket dropped on March 19, 2017, ironically the last day of Spring Break. If I had to take a tally, I did around 3000 Miranda runs for my Jacket. All my hope was lost, I was mentally exhausted and frankly a little bored of farming Miranda. I never gave up lol, but in the end, not only did I get the Jacket, I got the entire Captain Blood outfit (Hat, Jacket, Boots, Hook, and Reaver). Major congratulations on your rare Captain Blood's Jacket drop, it's one of the best robes in the entire game and it significantly makes hard bosses easier to manage and it speeds up farming by a lot. *High fives Anecorbie* I am very happy that you got the Jacket. Enjoy your rare prize, you've earned it. :)
Cheers and Congratulations again!

Thank you very much! Both of us know the agony of farming Miranda, I didn't keep count but I do know it was 2 years plus some.
I'm glad you now have a complete outfit from Blood and if we ever get a way to show case our boss gear, I know you'll have a place to show it.
Besides, with an update, there may be new boss gear that will over-shadow that Bloody Jacket!
( It's amazing to me that a piece of gear that is for level 35 is still of value to a level 70 maxed pirate! Way to make "OP" gear, KI! )

Ugh, the Imperial Boots of Moo Manchu.
It's the only item that hasn't dropped for me in that dratted Tower. And my Witchdoctor, Silver Isis, is only 4 runs away from that Master of Moo Badge!
I can only do one run & not every day like I used to do, unless it drops soon, I'll be in that Tower ( unless we get an update. )
