1.09 questions.

I have been bouncing between a few patches and had some 1.09 questions.
1. First, how do the higher player commands interact with drops? I know in 1.09b you can do up to 64, I imagine a decent character could manage in the teens fairly well, and I wonder how that compares to p8.
2. I have heard quest drops for act bosses is a newer feature, was this in 1.09?
3. Does lightning fury carry anything, CB for example, but lightning damage?
4. Are there any good crafting recipes? I recall having 11 life steal rings on realm back in the day, I think they were crafted in 1.09.

Any help is appreciated!

Not exactly a 1.09 expert, but:
1. Not entirely sure, but the biggest effect higher /players settings has on drops is by reducing the nodrop chance, and its already pretty low at /p7-8...I seem to recall you're facing pretty bad diminishing returns here...
2. Quest drops were added in 1.10
3. Don't think so...
4. 1.07 is the patch known for super-high lifeleech rings, but I believe it would be possible to craft a blood ring in 1.09 that had 11%LL (8%LL from 'of the Lamprey' affix + 3%LL from the automod). It would require a fairly high level character to get the ilvl up to 78+ so you could get the Lamprey affix, tho...

1) it was Cofirmed awhile back that no drop maxes out at players 21

4) crafting is better in 1.10+ with cruel affixes and such. 1.09 is known for the 3 socket magic sword recipe (2 sockets in newer patches)

Good to know. Looking at your crafting guide it seems, even if you don't get a bugged lifeleech ring, that 1.07 is the place to craft rings for 1.09 use, those automods are nice. Thanks for the reply!

I was actually reading a thread after posting this where you and some others were testing LK drops with 1.09 player settings, that was interesting, I didn't realize it worked the way it did. Yeah, I remember rolling a lot of colossus blades/swords back in the day. Thanks for the info.

This looks nothing like 1.09 questions. There are 4 I can see :D
:p
