In the past few months, I've done probably 60 or 70 champ spawns all the way through. I've gotten at least 70-80 SoTs, and spent who knows how many hours doing said champ spawns. In all that time, I have gotten *1* replica -- and it's one of the worst ones too (the Djinni's Ring). Is this normal? Or an incredible streak of bad luck? I want to know if I should give up on champs, cause it really doesn't seem worth it to finish spawns if that's a normal drop rate (levels 1 & 2 are always worth it, cause they're easy, and SoTs actually drop faster than in the later levels).

I think you are suffering from RGF ("Random Generator Fatigue") and really bad luck. I probably have done a few more of spawns (maybe 100+/-) and have gotten 6 replicas so far. I am sure some people have gotten more, but I can't live on UO anymore. I do frequently work the 1st 2 levels by myself and sometimes part of third so am getting the most kills. (I'm pretty sure I read that the person with most 'points' gets a 10% shot at drop first, if there is a drop). Hang in there. I recommend finding the spawn no one is at, working that until get to 2nd or 3rd level. By then others usually come and you have a jump on number of kills.
