Are there any numbers on the drop rates? Chaotic Haze seem to drop far less frequently than Aurora in Point Celsus.

Replying to this thread because I found it by specifically googling my issue. I'm going for Nier. 4 auroras from celsus today (two from mimics, two not from mimics), no chaotics. Has been happening consistently not just today, but for the last several days since I started specifically hunting for Nier's materials. Both with fast expeditions and non-fast. Always auroras, no chaos. I'm certainly feeling worried maybe chaotics can't drop from celsus, but I can't confirm it. If that is so then that's a pain. If anyone on wiki knows could they confirm? The page for hazes doesn't say it. :)
I just got a chaos haze in celsus (from a mimic) so the chances are definitely at least not zero. But I still agree with TC that the chances are WAY lower. Just got x2 auroras in one drop today even. :)
ok scratch all of it. Just had good luck with 4+ chaos and little to no auroras from celsus, two days in a row. 3rd day after that got only one chaos and no others. 4th day, only 1 aurora and no others. A lot more random than I thought I suppose....
I think I figured it out. although mimics of either type can drop either haze (presumably 50/50), it seems other haze drops from random enemies, if they drop them, always correspond to their element. So fire/wind/light enemies (including field generator, I discovered) always drop aurora, water/earth/dark always drop chaotic. When this happens they can seemingly be dropped by almost any enemies at all, even the weakling ones, even though the chances are low. As far as how the drop rates seem in one zone vs another, something I've noticed is that an expedition seems to often throw at you enemies that are a majority the same element. But the next expedition, might do it with a different element. It's never 100%, but like, some expeditions you run into mostly wind enemies, but it might be mostly water the next time, even if you do the same zone. This seems to be why it feels like we mostly get one type of haze on a given day :)
You should update the Arcarum pages w/ this!
I'm not sure how to properly add it unfortunately :(
