100+ runs in today and I still can't get this *sigh*

Roughly 200 runs in total for this today but at least Dragon Warrior is done and I can move on. I hate these RNG achievements.

Found this info in some forum: If you do this completely in the dark with no torch your percentage rate of getting that cursed necklace is 100%.

Oh my god finally. I defeated the Dragonlord and then just kept going in and out of the cave so I wouldn't have to deal with enemies

I don't know how many times I did that dungeon. However, I attempted to get the Death Necklace whenever I passed by that dungeon, instead of doing several runs consecutively.

Don't bother going though the cave in the dark, the chest always has a 1/32 chance of containing the necklace (unless you already have it I think).

Went in this smelly cave over 200 times before I decided to turn off hardcore and just use a save state. After about 7 save state loads I got it. Weird.

I swapped from using FCEUmm core in RetroArch to QuickNES and got the necklace within 10 trips this time around (on hardcore). I like FCEUmm better, but maybe the random number drops work better with QuickNES?

is it true the chest reappear when you leave the dungeon so you can keep redoing it?

Yes it is

well that makes things a lot easier. Thank you.

@Yvira - RNG is funny in the sense where it could spawn the 1st or the 100th time. I did your method of save state loading and it still took around 60 loads. I don't think an emulator core will fix the RNG.
