    Seriously man, you are lying.
    Diablo 3 isn't even out, how can you have half sigons drop from mephisto.
    Neither of those things are conformed yet.

    Really guys, stop pretending you have the game and make a jealous.

    Funny, I thought it was a carricature of the video gameplay trailer where the barb gets a whole set of plate armor from a chest. Even though this is just a demo and won't be like that in real final game.

    Big deal. My Amazon used to get the whole Isenhart's Case in a single drop all the time. One green breastplate for each of her um... wait, what?

    Because it took an amusing twist early on, and D3 conversation is slow during the summer when we haven't had any big new info since like, February.

    Cause you axed it in the wrong forum. :crazyeyes:

    As for the actual question, it's not that uncommon. I definitely remember getting 2 or 3 pieces of sigon's from meph on the same drop a number of time. You could get all 6, in theory. Check out ATMA or another drop calculator and you'll see that none of the items are that uncommon.

    It's been a long time since I wrote about it and was knowledgeable on the topic, but as anyone who plays notices, some item types are much more common than others, due to how the treasure classes are organized. Some have a lot more items than others, and several of the items in Sigon's are in very common TCs, that don't have very many items. Armor 33, IIRC. So you get a lot of plated belts and gauntlets and gothic plates, and if you've got good MF set items are pretty likely, and if you do hundreds of Meph runs... the item slot machine will come up all cherries once in a while.

    Vastly more detail on this sort of thing can be read in the wiki.

    Re: half sigon from one drop

    Just did the math...

    each individual item:
    1:219
    1:356
    1:219

    which if my statistics are correct...
    1:17074116

    I think I did everything right, anyone willing to double check? I used ATMA like flux said. I just did the first three parts of the sigons set, and I set it to players 8, treasure class mephisto(H) with 1 party member on screen (I usually join random games, and kill meph on my own).

    Re: half sigon from one drop

    That's only correct when you only have 3 drops. Mephisto can drop up to 6 items highly increasing your chances of having those drop.

    Re: half sigon from one drop

    oh gosh, your right. let me think...

    (I havn't done statistics in a few years...)

    that would mean it would be
    6:111
    5:111
    4:111
    (give or take)
    (first number goes down as when the first item drops, you now only have 5, then 4, etc)
    (the second number is the mean of the three numbers, so as not to say any number has significance over the other)

    this would mean...
    120:1367631
    or
    1:11396.925

    Now, that looks a little better I guess.

    Re: half sigon from one drop

    That's nothing. I've had 5 pieces of the Immortal King's set drop from Hell Baal. The funny part was, the only piece that had not dropped was the maul.(The most common IK set item)

    I used to have the screenshot on my computer, but since it died, I have been unable to recover it.(Or anything else.)

    It was during a private Baal run on USEast HC Ladder, with the rest of my old clan.(The Cure)

    We were at war(so to speak) with an opposing PK clan called The Virus.

    Good times... good times...
