    Azurewrath?

    Is there some weird drop thing with this weapon?

    I see tons of other uniques, I see tons of Crystal Swords and I carry max MF gear as a matter of course while leveling.

    GoMule's dropcalc has it dropping from bosses in Hell mostly? WTF?

    Re: Azurewrath?

    There are two variants.

    The one you refer to dropping from Hell bosses is a unique Phase Blade... TC87 and one of the six items that Pindleskin can't drop. If you're running 1.13, this is the Azurewrath you'll find.

    There was once a lower TC Azurewrath that was from the Crystal Sword base. I can't remember the exact time it was phased out, but I'd guess it was when 1.11 was introduced. This item will NOT drop in the current patch. The only way to obtain one through game play is to run on a previous patch.

    edit: Arreat Summit doesn't even have the old Crystal Sword Azurewrath listed as an available unique. It's listed only under the elite tab.

    edit2: Azurewrath wiki'ed.

    never bloody mind the noob

    seems GoMule has that old Azurewrath listed as TC12 in its Flavie report - which was the reason why I was wondering how come the unique Crystal Sword never drops.

    cheers for the explanation

    You're welcome. And no worries... there have been LOTS of changes over the years, and it's easy to get mixed information between all the sources.

    I'd guess the reason the old Azure's still in the dropcalc is because silospen was being accommodating to the people who choose to play older patches, but for those who aren't in the know I can see how it could be confusing. I believe the ATMA dropcalc is nicer, in that it gives the user the option to choose the game's version before it displays information. Last I knew, though, there were a couple misleading results in that one, too. I suggest having both programs to use as references against one another in the case that something looks wonky.

    And it's been a while since this old hand's been around, so... hi! Glad you've found this forum and stuck around for a while. :coffee:

    Re: Azurewrath?

    Those Azurewrath Crystal Swords drop like crazy in 1.09 - wouldn't take you long to find one if you fired up a 1.09 instance. It's actually a pretty decent twinking weapon too - 100%ED, some DS, and some MF.

    I plan to double up one of mine for a style-points Azurewrath Phase Blade once I make it to 1.13.

    I think it´s sad that v1.10 removed Azurewrath Crystal Sword. If you found it in Andariel´s drop (quite common) or in the first half of Act II, it was a decent weapon for most characters. Also, it had 10% MF, which is hard to get on weapons that early.

    Make sure they're both ethereal then, for even more stylepoints! :scratchchin:

    And for those in the wonder, it was indeed patch 1.10 that changed the Azurewrath base.

    Re: Azurewrath?

    Arachnid? Really? I recall myself getting few of those from Meph (or am I hugely mistaken?), so Pindle's level is high enough. What's the reason he can't drop Arachnid's?

    Mephisto has a rather low maximum TC (78) but his level is high (87).

    Although Pindleskin can drop TC 87 base items, his (and his minions') level is only 86.

    Re: Azurewrath?

    If we're gonna nitpick, he can't drop Annihili, Hellfire Torches, normal keys, tomes, perfect gems, grand charms with 41+ life, crafted items and quest items either. :crazyeyes:

    Pretty sure he can't drop scrolls either. I think there's also some elemental mods that can't spawn on small charms.

    I think you mean that it lists the ûbers which are not available on SP.

    That, too, but it's not what I was referring to.

    [quick forum serach]

    Huh, turns out I remembered the situation incorrectly. Turns out it was the GoMule dropcalc that was screwy. Link to the [very short] thread here.

    I don't know if silo's updated the dropcalc since that post 1.5 years ago (though I'd certainly bet money on it), but it doesn't change my advice: get both ATMA and GoMule to compare dropcalcs if something looks wonky.
