Default Need help about item drop rate

Hi there, I'm newbie here and my English isn't quite good. I'm having a question to ask:
I wanted to change the item drop rate of DoP, example increasing the drop rate of unique equipments. I tried to modify these lines in system.gdb but it didn'd work

ItemNormalChance 15
ItemCommonChance 15
ItemUncommonChance 35
ItemRareChance 100
ItemVeryRareChance 100
ItemSetChance 100
ItemUniqueChance 100
ItemArtifactChance 100
Can anyone help me?

Those are what you want to change, but it goes through them in order. First it checks to see if it is at least a common rarity, if that passes then it checks the uncommon, etc. Basically it picks the last rarity that passed the check.

Hmm... I still don't understand it clearly, well, so what do the numbers mean? 15 35 100 etc...

To be more specific: the game determines that an item should drop. It then checks if that item should be common (15%). It rolls a 100-side die. If it rolls more than 15, the item stays normal. Now it rolls again to see if the item is uncommon. If it rolls more than 35, the item stays uncommon. Now it rolls again to see if the item is rare. Since you changed the rare number to 100, the item will always be rare -- there's no chance of an item staying uncommon. etc...

If you change every number to 100, every item will be an artifact.

Oh, thanks, now I get it. By the way, can you please explain to me the meaning of these lines? And if I want to raise 5 skill points each level, what should I do?

BaseSkillPointsPerLevel 2
LevelsBetweenSkillPointRaises 5
SkillPointRaise 1

BaseSkillPointsPerLevel 2
LevelsBetweenSkillPointRaises 5
SkillPointRaise 1
- BaseSkillPointsPerLevel 2: how many skill points you get every time you go up a level to begin with. When you go from level 1 to 2, you'll get 2 skill points.

- LevelsBetweenSkillPointRaises 5: you'll keep getting 2 kill points for 5 levels, and then the number of skill points will go up. So level 1 you get 2, level 2 you get 2, level 3 you get 2, level 4 you get 2, level 5 you get 2. Level 6 it'll go up, and you'll get 3.

- SkillPointRaise 1: how much it'll go up after X levels (5 in this case). So after 5 levels, you'll go from 2 to 3. After another 5 levels, you'll go from 3 to 4 etc.
