    That sux. I have found that if meph is in that circle thing instead of near one of the sides, the drops sometimes fall in the lava instead of the ground, therefore leaving far fewer drops or no drops at all. Kinda like when you kill a ghost flying in space in arcane.

    Andy has a drop problem, well she doesn't have the problem its a problem with where you killed her. Try killing her in a different location, like away from the pillars in her chambers, or away from a chest. When you kill a monster of any kind be it a boss or a normal one, and you kill it to close to an object in the game or to close to a pit or in space the drops are never seen. I have killed baal myself and he dropped nothing because he was too close to the edge, I have also killed him before and some of the items I could not pick up because they were stuck behind the pillars at the end of his walk way.

    So if you are having trouble with drops, try to kill the boss or whatever else it might be in a different location.

    Duriel is intended to always drop one. It's something with the quest, you can get locked up in his chamber. I've seen often enough the tp the most valuable part of the drop :( .

    Hmm, doesn't Meph always drop 2 items at least ? Perhaps he also dropped some gold...

    In any case, Andy drops worse - sometimes she drops nothing.

    Any act boss can drop nothing when killed. At higher players settings the no-drop chance eventually becomes 0 and they drop 6 items each time.

    Think Duriel drops a tp scroll as he is described as 'Lord Of Pain' so a tp and a reward home for all the pain u suffered killing him lol

    Maybe a little late for a reply, but anyway...

    I know from my own experience that it happens with Andy, but in all those thousands of Meph runs I made in one-player games, he absolutely always dropped something and I'm 90% certain that it have always been two items at least.

    That it hasn't happened to you yet doesn't mean it can't happen at all. The chance of him dropping nothing is (15/80)^7, which is once every 122,741.4 kills.

    that equation looks interesting but what chances with more players? I guess it is somehing like (15/80)^(x+k) ? Or am I totally off? :p

    His (Mephisto's) no drop gets reduced to zero with three players in the game, that means ALWAYS 6 items. Andariel's no drop chanse reduces to zero from five players and up, as far as I can remember.
