    When you first kill Andariel you get a quest drop with the 3 hardcoded gems.

    Now you have 2 options:
    1. You don't talk to the NPCs to complete the quest.

    2. You do talk to them.

    When you don't talk to them, Andy starts to drop from her non-quest TC and with lowered qualities. This continues until you have a word with one of the NPCs in act1.

    Now the quest is completed and you can go to act2. But now Andy starts dropping for her quest TC again.

    I think the bug is fixed since I get shitty drops from Hell Andariel these days (one time she dropped 0 items, not even money or pots!) Playing EuroLadder.

    she ;) just look at where the chains are connected


    But I agree, I think the bug has been fixed as well. In the last 2-3 weeks I started getting way worse drops from her than I used to. I still do her along with meph and baal in my mf games, but I'm starting to think it's not worth it anymore like it used to be.

    Andariel's quest drop is more likely to have nodrops than regular act bosses drops. Run her in a game with at least a few people in it for maximun effect. Perhaps the bug has been fixed on the realms, if so, its certainly easy to verify. Andariel's quest drop never drops magical. If you get a magical item that is not a failed set item, she didn't drop her quest drop.

    Also the quest drop will never have money or potions (or arrows/bolts/scrolls) in it. However the non-quest drop will have that stuff almost every time. So pretty easy to check. The fact that someone was complaining! about not getting money or potions suggests she is still dropping the quest drop.

    andariel actually gave me a lot of good stuff, but nothing ever too great about her. i think i got a tal rasha mask, natayla's boot and a rising sun at once. duriel in the other hand.... he dropped me 0 item once and one time he dropped me a cracked yew wand (with no mods). now i completely stopped killing duriel. all he ever gave me was a rattlecage and a 32% chance guard

    andariel still working for me :)

    last 50 runs about 48 runs I got at least a rare, never got arrows or that stuff tho..

    could someone try this:

    talk to kaysha, run mephisto then.
    last 15 runs I got at least a rare each time :p

    the andariel drop bug has nothing to do with talking to an NPC before every run, and no such bug exists for any other act boss.
