    Duriel drop bug a hoax?

    I have read about the Andy drop bug which I am taking advantage of frequently lately. I did find a mention that there is a bug with Duriel's drop as well while googling . But it is only mentioned a few times on various message boards and never really discussed at length. Does this bug even exist? Or does it get thrown to the back burner because the Andy bug has a chance of a far better drop? ( stone of jordon)

    Unless it is similar to the Memphisto MF bug - details in the sorceress forum.

    Frankly I never saw the point in running Duriel. He's hard to find compared to Memohy who drops much better even when not bugged.

    Maybe they mean the fact that he always drops a townportal scroll?

    Bugging an act boss means that he will always give first kill drops.
    I don't know the exact mechanics of bugging boss quests but apparently it is possible if the quest consists of several parts: In the case of Andy you have 1) to kill her and 2) talk to Wariv.
    In the case of Duri there are even more parts: 1) kill Duri, 2) talk to Tyrael, 3) talk to Jerhyn & Meshif.

    Now, to bug Andy, you have to kill her for the quest and talk to Wariv in the same game. The same should work for Duri (kill him, then talk to Tyrael, Jerhyn, Meshif). But this does not work! I have read somewhere that it is because the Duri quest is "double bugged" in such a way that one bug cancels the other.
    Unfortunately, I cannot give you more detailed information.

    To summarize: you can bug Andy but you cannot bug Duriel although there is something weird going on with the Duri quest, too.
