    How did this happen?

    A title that would make jauques sauniere proud, this is a loaded question.
    I repeat, How did this happen?
    I was marching my way to Mephisto the other night and happened upon a pack of blood lord Champs. Not being one deny them the priveledge of Trystal's wrath, Level 30 meteors rained down in fury. Expecting the usual greater healing, super mana, and a blue sash, I depressed my space bar to reveal the following:

    Corona

    Now, back to my loaded question: How did this happen?- pt 1. I was under the assumption that this was a TC 90 item, now a TC 87, of the rarest in the entire game. I was also under the impression that Durance 3 monsters did not have the ability to drop from the highests TC's. Where have I mistaken?

    How did this happen? pt 2. Having played this game for well over 2 years, with a barbarian toting >700% MF in 1.09 and a sorcie sporting >450% MF in 1.10, I have never once been blessed with a drop such as this.

    Perhaps my perception of a Corona is over valued in 1.10. But if memory serves me correctly, this was a highly coveted drop for grail seekers, such as myself.

    lvl83 and above can drop from TC87 IIRC, just with an very small chance. Also if I remember right, they can't drop the highest base items but they can drop all the nice stuff from the "tc87"

    Shade or someone could propably explain it better

    Since you said you found it on a Champ Blood Lord, they get a +2 level increase. So the monster becomes lvl 85 and thus drop a plenty of stuff. Better than Tresh Socket. At lvl85 they get a relatively good chance of TC87 items too.
