    All set drop?

    I killed Hell Andariel for the first time last week. This was my reward:

    All set drop

    Has anyone else gotten a drop like this before? I though it was pretty cool!

    Prett cool drop...I've gotten weird drops from time to time...it happens. Once I got three identical pieces from the same set...think it was Sigon's boots.

    nice drop :thumbsup:

    things like this happen from time to time and its pretty cool. its really cool when it happens from a superchest and you can get 6+ uniques in a single drop

    I remember a thread not too long ago where someone explained this pheonomenon in regards to superchests, not sure if it applies to kills as well. Theres some kind of calculation that is done in a drop that is actually done for groups of items (4 in a group?) instead of each item individually. This is what usually results in all sets or all uniques.

    Seeing that this is my first romp into Hell, I would agree that most of it is worthless. I had all of the already, except for Immortal King's Will.

    As far as I know, superchests are unique in how they calculate item drops. That's why you can get 6 or more rare items, for example, coming out of one chest. Bosses calculate each drop individually, so jrlafrance was just exceptionally lucky (if you care to see it that way) at getting so many items that even have set versions, much less getting them all at once. Collectively, that's probably on par with getting a TC87 or better from Hell Baal. Of course, the net usefulness is a bit different there. :uhhuh:

    edit: I couldn't see the pic since you've exceeded your bandwidth.

    I have a belief that at times, certain items types have a higher chance of dropping. Just recently, over a course of ~50 runs, demonhide sashes kept on dropping from time to time and I actually collected 2 string of ears. I think that some time ago, I almost had 2 harlys, but the second one was a failed set.

    Ah, this reminds me of one of my most annoying drops: Hell Meph, dying in a cloud of flying skulls, and what remained? A greater healing potion, some gold, two green military picks... and two green breastplates. :rolleyes: Man, he loves those green breastplates.

    Pico - what's with the L87 after your Ornate Plates? Were you playing a mod there? ^^

    Yes, I use an addon pack that shows shows the TC and some other user interface stuff ingame. Don't worry, I don't trade or do anything, and I know how people feel about those types of thing, so you can beet me with a stick if you wish.

    Doesn't bother me ... but it would be difficult to "beet" you ... they are better boiled with lots of sour cream! Yum.

    I don't think this is true...Drops as the one you describe are weird for sure, and my 3xsigon boot is also far out...but stuff like this happens, and it's totally random...The other day I was playing a game called Settlers, and every round you roll 2 dice...3 times in a row we got 2 which is a very rare occurence...and it's exactly the same thing in Diablo...Also some bosses are very inclined to drop certain items...Mephisto has quite a love affair going with green breast plates and IK mauls:)

    i've also had 3 Isenhart pieces in one drop and 2 Magnus' Skin in the same drop. i heard of someone get 4 Sigon pieces in 1 drop before
