Description

Item Discovery increases the chance of an enemy dropping an item on their random drop table.

Item Discovery works by comparing your value of Item Discovery against the enemies chance to drop an item. For example, if you have an Item Discovery of 100, and say a Proof of a Concord Kept has a 10% drop rate, your drop rate will be 10%. However if you have a Item Discovery of 400, your drop rate will be 40%.

$Chance = ( Item Discovery / 100 ) * Drop Chance$

Therefore if you are farming an item, it is recommended you maximise your Item Discovery otherwise it may take you a very long time to get a drop.

Maximizing Item Discovery

A good endgame strategy for maxing out your Item Discovery (for say, farming Covenant Items offline) is respec your character to max out Luck, and then use the Hallowed Sword in one hand and the Hallowed Greatsword in the other hand (both with the Lucky infusion), while wearing the Symbol of Avarice and a Covetous Gold Serpent Ring. This should easily get you more than 300 discovery, which you can increase by another 50 or 100 with the Rusted Coin or Rusted Gold Coin respectively.
