    well, ive had 2 major instinct finds, before i made my hammerdin, i used to run countess with my ik barb, so while running through blackmarsh, i saw a unique group so i killed, and they dropped me a perf wartravs, and i only had 52 mf heh. with my hammerdin, i was baalrunning in pubby games, and was getting bored, so one gafe, after everyone left, they hadnt killed baal, so i went in and layed the smackdown on him, and he dropped a dru ele charm/35 life and a -4/3 fiire die facet...so instincts are awesome heh.

    In 1.09, my bowazon opened a chest in Durance 2 (normally she ignored everything there, if possible, and ran straight to Durance 3) and an Ist rune popped out of it.

    In this season, my zealot made a Baal run when a jewel dropped in WSK level 3, in the mid of a large group of ghosts and succubi. I insisted on retrieving it, so I risked the life of the zealot to pick it up and it turned out to be a 15%IAS/14 allres jewel which I later sold for 4 Ist runes.

    Saw a unique ring drop on Baal and somehow I knew that was a very good sign even though I had no idea what the stats on likely rings were. Sure enough. My first SoJ.

    A few weeks ago, while I was popping chests in Lower Kurast with my Bowzon, I stumbled upon a few locked chests I couldn't open, since I ran out of keys. I usually just ignore chests if they're locked and no key, but this time I went back to town to buy another dozen. Came back, popped the 2 chests, and one of them dropped Um rune :D.

    I rember very well one thing that happened in 1.09 single player.
    I had just saved Anya and was going through fully cleared Frozen River back to Crystalline Passage.
    Suddenly I saw a lonely skeleton on the other side of the river (probably I killed him, but he arised again, when I went away). I hesitated for a second: should I leave him, or go to the other coast and kill him? I decedied to do it. Ist was my reward :p.

    I bet he chanted you with lvl 58 possession, and forced you to give the infinity to him with lvl 23 persuasion. :D

    Just helped a friend to quest forge...

    Hephasto died quick thanks to infinity+trapz, I pressed Alt, and saw a gold eldritch orb, and it disappeared, then I was like wow my friend's fast... then i waalked forward and I told myself it's on the floor I must press alt again. To my suprise, there was a yellow eldritch orb on the floor, and a gold ring... i clicked on it as fast as I could and went back to town to buy ID scrolls, well not an soj but a Wisp Projector(17%LA). Not too shabby :D

    My friend and I were hanging around a Hell game at the hight of D Clone activity, I decided to visit Mephy with my Bowazon who has like -50 MF..
    I killed him and a gold swirling crystal dropped,,, made my sorceress very happy except for the teleport mod (but thats another story).

    We were doing act 2 and a unique ring dropped my friend said you take it probably a nagel or something similar. I picked it up but didn't id for a while,well it was a SOJ!! (he still let me keep it) :D.

    I usually avoid the dolls if i'm doing a mephy run but one day decided to kill some of them, one droped a bartuc giving me a set of 2 for my assassin.

    I found a Storm Shield off a boss monster in the desert on my way to the Ancient Tunnels could barely believe my eyes. !!

    I was running around in Act 1 since i had just made a new barb and I decided to do the Cain quest, and when I got to the Carin stones, I was gonna try to avoid Rakinishu so his ligtning wouldnt kill me, but I fought him anyway and he dropped a Hoto.

    Yes yes, I've also heard of Rakinishu dropping 6 BO CTAs, and in Eth Crystal Sword mind you. :D
    Well, I don't have any of those instincts, I always, always stumble upon my finds:
    4 days into new Ladder, raping NM Meph because we all just restarted, a unique ring dropped, and I said to myself, "Psh, I'm not even gonna pick it up, cuz with my luck, it's just gonna be a 15 Nagel", I did end up picking it, and it was an SOJ.
    2 days later, raping Hell Meph, unique ring dropped, I picked it up non-chalantly, didn't even bother IDing it right away, and two days later, "O hey, an unid ring!", and turned out, another SOJ.
    Wearing 2 SOJs a week into the new Ladder was awesome, but I also got a crap load of "f***ing bot, cheater!"

    Best find I've ever got was an Ormus, by Hell Meph, again, I wasn't even gonna pick it up, "O it's just gonna be another 11/10/12/Teleport", but how did it turn out? 15/15/15/Blizzard!!!
