This is more of a response to Akara's question posted earlier today in the shoutbox. I didn't see a post on this topic so thought I would share some input here as it may have been too wordy in shoutbox and possible got lost in the snow.
The question was: Akara: does anyone know for a fact whether warrior foes have higher chances of dropping warrior weapons?
I recalled coming across a similar subject in Wiki before, but when I tried to look for it, it wasn't an easy task. Instead of the normal GW wiki (https://wiki.guildwars.com), I looked back at the "other" wiki (guildwars.wikia.com) and found what I was looking for. I can't back this up or know the source of where the following came from so I am not swearing on anything including my pinky toe. I also understand it doesn't truly answer the question but thought maybe it would help, at least it helped me understand that I have a better chance to get that pesky fire wand I have been chasing by an Ele foe.
"Axes, hammers, swords, shields and bows are dropped by monsters of all professions in all campaigns, and daggers are dropped by monsters of all professions in the Factions campaign. Profession-specific wands, staves and focus items are generally only dropped by monsters of the same profession. Variable attribute wands and staves dropped by any monster can be linked to the attributes of any caster profession. Variable attribute focus items dropped by Monks, Necromancer, Mesmer, Elementalist and Ritualist monsters are linked to one of the attributes of the monster's profession. It is not currently known if Warriors, Rangers or Assassins can drop variable attribute focus items. "
