Rofl!

So there I am, mad that Andy, Meph, and Baal all dropped magical junks, when I decide to take my rage out on the Trav pack. I didn't even bother to switch to MF items, and killed them straight away with IK set. To my surprise, when the dust settled, there was a Buriza and an Eth Occy sitting there. Just a reminder to all of you to remember to kill Trav pack before you leave your MF games; I'm sure I will :clap:

The first and as of yet, only shako I've ever found happened like this:
I'm Teleporting through the durance with my fire sorc trying to find the stairs, when BAM, into a pack of dolls, which my merc "helpfully" kills, taking me down in the process.. Anyway, I find body recovery to often be the most fun part of the game, so off I go. Clearing the way slowly, using hit and run fireballs to take things down one at a time, pretty slowly with my naked character. Then I open a chest, and bang, there it is! Lowest defence possible though! Haha

Yeah, luck plays a major role. I havent found much stuff with my necromancer in the ladder, but today I got a bit lucky. Whilst running through Durance level 2, i popped a chest open (frustrated as I was, because the durance on nightmare is large as what) and bang! Lidless wall!

Ok, not that big, but it was big to me. Gotta be happy about small things. :)

Yeah. I found a Lidless Wall with near-perfect stats, a 129/5 on the variables, from a chest in Hell with my old Hammerdin. Act 1, 0 mf.:yep:

popped some 43 war travs at the end of last ladder of a random chest in the black marsh (hell) while looking for the tower.

a few days before, I dropped an almost perfect string off a random skellie in the 2nd level of the harem's basement.

I once found a Stone of Jordan off one of those zombies while running Hell Andariel. I looked at the golden ring and thought it was a Nagelring, but when I saw those lovely words on my screen....I was overjoyed. The TWO unique rings Andariel dropped when i killed her turned out to be both Nagels...and sucky ones at that. :lol:

Congrats to everyone on their finds....hopes someone pops a zod rune somewhere.

Hell Meph dropped a lot of dump into the pool of fire so I get nothing. Since I needed some gold for my merc and potions and such, I go to kill a group of Unique Blood Lords and find a shiny golden Corona waiting for me!

I wanted to try to run mephisto with my lightning javazon, as I was walking to durance level 3, a pack of undead stygian dolls approached me. Lightning furies quickly finished them off. I found a golden hydra bow sitting on the ground waiting for me to pick up. Unexpected find...

On the way to hell countess, opened one of them chests and out came a 39% ED / 15 IAS jewel ;)
I mostly find better items on the way to a boss or while doing random quests than when i'm actually trying to mf / kill boss...
Or when i'm doing an eldritch / shenk run and decide to go a bit further down blood moor past shenk and find a manald heal off one of them enslaved ones.
And chests! Must've found tons of uniqs from chests before, always open chests. ;)

You know that feeling...

You restart on ladder and use nothing but crap and magical rings and then drops a shiny gold ring and you are very happy since even if its a 15% nagel that will godliest than what you wear..

Well that happened me on new ladder, yesterday it was a 246/20 raven doing hell countess and today was 4%bk in the pit...Talk about luck.. :thumbsup:

A long time ago, in my 1.09 days, I found The Grandfather in the Halls of Vought (sp?) with my LF Javazon. I wasn't even wearing any mf gear.

I used to have a screenshot of that golden Colossus Blade just sitting there, but I lost it. Oh yeah, and I've also since lost the weapon. Oh well.

Was doing hell diablo while waiting for the game to perm, and he dropped a perfect Bul Kathos ring.
A long time ago, my blizzsorc (Yay) was skipping through the hell sewers because she needed one more point to max all her synergies, and one of the skeletons drops absolutely perfect war travs. Go me.

Wow that is a stroke of luck! It usually takes alot of runs to get anything from the pit. Nice find. :thumbsup:

So far i've been lucky considering i haven't made it into hell yet. I found a gull dagger and a 21 nagel in norm cows and a rare ring with some decent stats with 10% mf on it as well.

Back then in 09 during the huge dupes, when every1 had 4534354 sojs, in nightmare meph, i found a unique ring, and what do u know, its a soj. It felt kinda bad though, bc obviously u say ur soj is legit and they all laugh heh, so it wasn't worth much, but it was the soj i used on my sorc heh
