Yep, Light it is! Now that everything's balanced though, if we get another new character it'll be anyone's game and all the variants will be in the running for PF Gold. Unless they have a neutral, in which case who knows!
Here's the final totals for shiny odds after tallying all the 4.5 data. Thanks everyone for contributing!
4 out of 711 Bronzes: 0.56%
5 out of 350 Silvers: 1.76%
1 out of 177 Golds: 0.56%
0 out of 41 Diamonds
(note: some close approximate values added in)
Definitely feels like something odd is going on with the Golds, since they seem to have similar shiny odds to Bronzes. I haven't been tracking my PF Golds either, none of which have been shiny, so these are purely the odds from relics. If I added up all the PF Golds I've received since shinies were introduced and added them in here it'd probably be close to another 45 non-shiny Golds (~24 weeks since 4.3, 2 PF Golds a week, minus ~4 for a few misses and some approximations), lowering the odds to 0.45%, which is even lower than the Bronze odds.
No Diamonds still, so I might just start keep track of random Gold / Diamond pulls I get before the next update to help round out the data a little more. I'm saving all my rarity relics for when the new fighters are added in to the standard relics though, so I'll get a new batch of data then.
Also, today is officially the anniversary of 4.1 when gifting was added!
And since sometimes the easiest way to fix bad luck is to complain about it in a public forum, shoutout to everyone else who is still missing Inner Pieces just like me! (Game please, it's been a year, from some quick calculations we did earlier the odds of IP from each gold gift is ~1 in 1000, and I'm approaching 1500. Please, I just want one for my collection.)
