I don't know how non-random drops are, but I did hear one theory that went something like "greens drop more often from mobs if you grind the same type of mob for a long time".I tried this, and I FELT like it was working, so I decided to try it scientifically. Using a pencil and paper I kept tick marks killing only one type of mob, over and over, on three different kinds of mobs, and kept track of greens. The greens did, in fact, show up in the later part of the ticks.Then, to prove to myself it wasn't just random luck, I did the same tracking, but with random mobs I needed to kill for quests. Three sets of 50 mobs later, the results came out - more greens dropped from mobs that I killed many of in a row.Coincidence? Maybe. I'm an engineer, so I'm not convinced until I see the code, but I'd say it's definitely possible that events in the game affect drops.
