Miniature 0.5% 2

On average, each fortune drops 0.4 points towards the Party Animal title track and 31Gold.

1 Drop research is ongoing, and can be found here. (Numbers add to more than 100% due to rounding.)
2 The drop rate for each miniature is presumed to be the same 0.5%; that number is based on a review of Guild Wars Wiki data and is within the range (0.45%-0.65%) confirmed by John Stumme for celestial miniatures (see the talk page for details).


One of these appear in your chat window when using a Lunar Fortune:


  • Unlike other presents, Lunar Fortune content items drop on the ground and are assigned to the character that used the fortune.
  • If you are willing to spend the time, you can get more fortunes from playing Rock, Scissors, Paper with Lucky Hochei (Lion's Arch) than you would from obtaining them directly from the Lunar Fortune Giver (Shing Jea Monastery).
    • If you play long enough, you should expect one fortune (and one sweet) from every two tokens spent, as opposed to one fortune for every three tokens spent from the collector. For example, you play 150 games. On average, you will win 50 games, lose 50, and draw 50, resulting in 100 tokens spent and 50 fortunes won. However, this is extremely tedious and not guaranteed.
