Greetings Avatars! I have released a new tool for players and believe it will be one of the most popular tools I have created. One of the biggest questions that arises from players is "Where does X artifact drop?". The SotA public API cannot answer this question and the SotaWiki, as amazing as it is, is limited by folks updating it which can be intimidating. This tool looks to source this information directly from... YOU! Anonymously of course Artifact Survey Tool How it works While you are adventuring either solo or as a group, every time an artifact is gained an entry is created in your chatlog for that session. The tool works by you uploading your chatlog file to the tool, processing it to find the artifacts, and storing them in a database. This data can then be used by the view page to see the data processed from all uploaded files. Privacy The tool does not store any data specific to you. A one-way hash is stored (an encoded version) of your filename to prevent duplicate uploads. There is no way to reverse the hash to see the filename (which is important as your player name is in the chatlog filename). After the file is processed it is immediately deleted from the system. The only data from your chatlog file that is stored is the artifact name + rarity, the scene that it was obtained in, and the last MOB killed prior to obtaining the artifact. The data is stored in summary format so there is no direct link back to any specific file hash that the data came from. Limitations The tool will only process a chatlog file once. The chatlog files upload has a maximum file size of 50MB. The chatlog does not contain the exact source of the artifact. The tool stores the current scene and the last MOB killed along with the artifact as information that can be used to potentially locate the source of the artifact. The tool cannot distinguish between artifacts looted from a crate or a body. ChatLog files that span midnight will not register artifacts since the scene is not known. Once the scene has changed, any artifacts gained will be registered. Thank you @Anpu for noting that there is a randomness to the Artifact system. The # at the end on the view page is the # of times that occurred in ChatLog files. The higher the # the more likely the source. Still, the data will never be exact. Over time the drops for some artifacts may have changed. For example, the Razorback Destroyers in South Drachvald Spur used to drop all tamer artifacts. Since then, the ones specific to a type of animal have been moved to only dropping from that animal (ie Bear helms now only drop from bears). What is next? The view page is meant as a placeholder for now. It's simple and works but I plan on a more robust, searchable interface.
