    Barrels, Urns and Crates..

    I, as the paranoid player that I am, kick every barrel, urn or crate I stumble upon.. I'm so Terrible afraid that the one barrel I don't kick will contain the most usefull items or runes!

    Does anyone else here kick everything? Do you just run by them all? Is it a waste of time?

    To my own experience I can say that at least in 1.10 on players 8 barrels bring nice rewards!

    So far (lvl 60 necro, players 8 all the way, every crate, urn and barrel kicked, act 3 nightmare, just got the brain) I have noted the following items on my "what have I find in barrels paper":

    4 rare Amulets
    2 rare Rings
    1 Unique Longsword
    3 Tal Runes
    2 Ort Runes
    4 Ith Runes
    1 Amn Rune
    5 Jewels
    1 rare Jewel
    1 rare Naga
    8 Flawless Gems (I didn't note anything less than flawless, too lazy)
    1 Set Item Civerb's Cudgel
    a dozen El, Eld, Eth runes

    I love barrels!

    Lots of good stuff can come from barrels, chests and the like, you are wise to check every one of them :)

    I always kick them all, but never got anything worth to keep (never found runes), back to 1.09, I found one and only one uniq (amulet) from them (forgot where). Maybe just my luck :rant:

    It depends a lot on the mood I'm in. I'd say on average I kick about 30% of the barrels. The way I see it, as the game only determines what drops when I actually kick the barrel, there can't be anything in the barrel before kicking it. So if I don't kick barrels I won't miss anything, because it isn't there yet.

    It's a little confusing, similar to the quantum cat... :scratch:

    I always open shiny chests, though. Just the other day one of those in Hell Kurast Sewers dropped Lava Gout for me. :)

    i always kick barrels and chests, everything, sometimes i go backwards if i see i have missed one. best finds are, in 1.09 an ohm rune in the chest beyond meph at the backroom (never underestimate this chest!) and in 1.10 a gilded shield in durance2.




    peace, NSK factory, and don't forget biscuits for smut

    I you are wiser to just move on, so you can complete your run or act faster.

    I found my first Swirling Crystal from a crate in NM Kurast

    In fact crates and beds in Act 1 have been known to give uber chest drops I have seen screen shots with 4-5 rares or better from them.

    i have a bit of a habit that involves killing/breaking/opening everything in a level... i like to explore every single room of a tomb - not just where i have to go... i kick every barrel, open every check, check every corpse, kill every monster, etc... takes a lot of time sometimes.

    but hey - sometimes i'll see a little monster in the corner of the screen and think about passing him - then my hoard comes and kills him and he pops out a flawless gem or something... so that usually makes me continue doing it that way.

    Ug Smash!

    I habitually break everything, although I haven't found much good (closest was a Unique from a stash in Durance 2), and as any psychoanalyst will tell you that means I have a large quantity of repressed violence. Now if you'll excuse me...

    *wanders off to un-repress his violence upon psychoanalyst*

    I've found my best pair of Wartravs from kicking an Urn in Act 2 Hell.

    It was spiffiness.
