    Boost in MF when you kill something at the same time as you lvl?

    Anyone else notice this? I'd been doing NM Baal runs for a while, and I decided one night that I was just going to do them til I leveled, which took a long time, but I found crap right until when I killed him at the same time I leveled and he dropped an occy and a gaze.

    I had suspected this when I was doing NM Meph also, I would get assorted crap until I killed him at the same time as I leveled.

    I'm not talking about just one or two uniques and 3-4 magical or rares, when I killed meph and baal when I leveled, there were like 5 or 6 ALL unique.

    I was just wondering if this was already a fact or if anyone else had noticed.

    Coincidence is a funny thing. Levelling or level has nothing to do with magic find.

    That's what I thought too, until it happened a second time. I'll probably try it again when I'm closer to leveling, but it just seems like a VERY large coincidence to have two separate occasions where I killed a boss when I leveled and near all of the items were uniques, regardless of TC.

    Luck is probably the over riding factor for you, the only thing I "always" experience when achieving a level is some extra lag. :scratch:

    MY congrats on your luck. :drink:

    Aye, a large coincidence to be sure. However large coincidences are what cause people to believe things that aren't true. Superstitions are born from said coincidences.

    If i stand on one foot with one finger on the back of my head while making the final click on an act boss i get a wf, draculs, GF, SS, and a complete set of BoTD runes every time!


    Sorry radiance its 99.99999% likely its just a coincidence

    I usually do a headstand and click the left mouse button with my toe right as I'm falling over...that usually works. Otherwise my strategy includes taking a sip of beer every time Baal hits me with his stupid poke, I tried that once and got a BotD already made for me. :)

    There can be many explanations to past events.. however they don't really matter. See how well prediction works for your theory.

    Speaking of baal, his stupid giant cold V is the most annoying thing EVER. Sometimes he shoots it like 5 times in a row. It doesn't even hurt, it just knocks me back over and over.

    Totally, I hate it when there is two of him and they both decide to shoot you with the cold V at the same time, or also when they double team you with the flame thing and there goes all your mana.

    Yes.. extremely annoying that knockback-thingy.

    And speaking of.. uh.. an act boss.. I was doing a Meph run the other day and he dropped five piles of gold and a greater healing potion. Didn't know it could even happen. Thx Meph.

    Another bit of useless trivia: The Countess can indeed drop no runes at all. Happened to me several times.. (..I remember ppl debating 'bout this some time ago)

    Oh and Usufruct, wasn't Jesus just a human being like the rest of us? I bet I could microwave a burrito so hot that Jesus couldn't eat it.. or at least enough to get his tongue badly burned. :scratch:
