Parrot Egg is a trinket item dropped by slain monsters.

Equipping the parrot egg in the trinket slot causes a parrot to spawn and follow the player around. While in combat it occasionally finds gold coins when slaying monsters. The egg can be reforged using an Anvil, changing the level of parrot from 1 to 4, with a limit depending on total earnings. Each possible level is equally likely.[1]

The chance of an enemy dropping a gold coin is 10% per level, for a maximum chance of 40% with a level 4 parrot, regardless of Luck or enemy type or location[2] Each gold coin is worth data-sort-value="250">Gold.png250g, and for each gold coin an enemy drops, it has another chance to drop a gold coin. The chance and number of gold coins dropped are not affected by the Burglar's Ring or Monster Compendium. These values are summarized in the following table:

Parrot Level Average Coins per Enemy[3] Average Gold Gold.png per Enemy Minimum Total Earnings[1]
1 0.11 27.78 data-sort-value="0">Gold.png0g
2 0.25 62.50 data-sort-value="750000">Gold.png750,000g
3 0.43 107.14 data-sort-value="1500000">Gold.png1,500,000g
4 0.67 166.67 data-sort-value="2250000">Gold.png2,250,000g

  • If the player's total earnings are under data-sort-value="750000">Gold.png750,000g, they can only get a level 1 parrot and thus the game will not reforge the parrot egg with the Anvil. However, attempting to do so will still consume 3 Iridium Bars.


  1. 1.0 1.1 See TrinketEffect::GenerateRandomStats in the game code.
  2. See TrinketEffect::OnDamageMonster in the game code.
  3. The expected value is a geometric series, determined by the formula 1/(1-p)-1, where p is the chance of a coin dropping.
