    You didn't find them both in the same game did you? I'd assume they were games one after the other. If it they did drop off different monsters in the same game, there may be some questions to be raised.

    Your post says "2 lidless in one run" and then you go on to say you found one in each run. Which is it? One run or two runs?

    I thought I just read in the new Pit guide in this site that 2 of the same unique can drop in the same game if one monster drops both of them. If that one monster does not drop the two identical uniques, then that unique won't drop again in that game.

    Precisely, which is why Nobbler and I have raised our questions. I think he most likely found them one run after the other.

    Alex is awesome

    One time i found 3 jade talons within the space of 5 minutes, 2 non eth 1 eth, all from meph.

    There was a time where my friend found ik armor AND then tal armor in 2 pindle runs. Just funny... bastard!

    Does the unique rule apply to rings and amulets? or items like ls/azure where one item can be either one?

    It applies to each and every individual unique item. That one sentence tells us that it includes rings and ammys. It also tells us that a Lightsabre and an Azurewrath can drop in the same game, as they are each individual uniques. If you find a Lightsabre in a game, the next unqiue phase blade to drop in that game (if a second one drops at all... and it can!) will be a guaranteed Azurewrath.

    It's kinda funny that in a situation like this, if you kept that second unique phase blade from the same game unidentified, you would know which kind of unique phase blade it is. Imagine betting with your friends that you can tell which one it will be before its id'd :)

    Edit: this Phase Blade situation also applies to rings and ammys, as there are multiple different uniques of each as well.

    So you are telling me it is predetermined for those items. Intresting. How about if an item fails, say ml too low or something similar, does that apply?

    IMO that's a myth. I will belive only in first-hand information from a trustful person, i.e. he must have witnessed it himself.

    However, set items can drop more than once in a game, and it happens twice to me that two equal set items were in a single drop from Meph. Once 2x Isenhart's Chest (what else ?) and once 2x Berseker's Axe. Perhaps that phenomen evolved into the above theory.

    This is not surprising as I have found two set Colossus Blade in the span of 3 minutes doing Pindle run. They both are in my mule currently.
