    IK Armor Spawn

    Is there a boss or area that increases the likelihood for this to drop? I have done thousands of meph/baal/andy/duriel/pindle runs and have never seen one of these drop. Same goes for Tyrials might. I have never seen a sacred armor drop.

    Sacred armor is just very very rare. Pindle can drop it (he dropped IK armor for me before) but as far as I understand it cannot be a tyrial's.

    Re: IK Armor Spawn

    For IK armor, with 300 mf and in a game by yourself -

    1 : 5221 Baal ~ 1st kill - [H] The WorldStone Chamber - {mlvl 99}
    1 : 7438 Baal - [H] The WorldStone Chamber - {mlvl 99}
    1 : 8563 Thresh Socket - [H] Arreat Plateau - {mlvl 84}
    1 : 8565 Frozenstein - [H] Frozen River - {mlvl 86}
    1 : 8565 Pindleskin - [H] Nihlathak's Temple - {mlvl 86}
    1 : 8565 Snapchip Shatter - [H] Icy Cellar - {mlvl 86}
    1 : 13503 Monster in lvl 84 area- [H] lvl 84 area in hell- {mlvl 84}
    1 : 43065 All baal's superunique minions

    In an 8 player game without partying with anyone, with 300 mf, you don't have very much better odds.

    With 600 mf it's not much better either.

    Best odds at getting tyreals with 300 mf and in a game by yourself is well over 1 in 100,000. Getting it from a boss pack (from the boss only) is over 1 in 400,000.

    Best bet for tyreals is definately baal, then run lvl 85 areas and kill the random bosses in there. For IK armor, easiest is pindle.

    Re: IK Armor Spawn

    Out of those, only baal and pindle can drop Sacred Armor.

    Perhaps you could run through lvl 85 areas. The champions/minions/uniques in those areas can drop any item in the game (excepting Cow set and certain affixes), and since you'll be killing a lot of them faster than you could, for instance, baal, you will increase your chances of dropping good items.

    EDIT: Beaten twice :p

    thanks for the feedback, I knew Tyreals was rare, but I thought the IK would spawn more often. I see it offered for Pul all the time.

    I suppose it's offered so cheap because an Ik Barb isn't as l33t as a Barb decked out in teh Ub3r runzewordz.

    Still a very solid character though using concentrate, WW or beserk.

    Re: IK Armor Spawn

    Any monster which can drop a sacred armor can drop IK armor as well because its qlvl is low, i.e. anything in L81+ areas, a couple of super-uniques in act 5 (including Pindleskin) and Baal. Super-uniques and act bosses in lower acts cannot drop it. Tyrael's has a very high qlvl as well (87), so a monster from the mentioned areas must be L87+ as well which cancels out all regular monsters (but not boss minions), champions from L84 or lower areas and half of the remaining act 5 super-uniques. Pindleskin cannot drop it as well. Even if Tyrael's can drop, only 1 out of 9 unique sacred armors is Tyrael's, the others are Templar's Might.

    Where are good places to hunt for plain old white sacred armors? I've been doing pit runs, but have only seen 1 sacred armor drop (blue) so far.

    Re: IK Armor Spawn

    Hahaha! (if I may)

    Looking for IK armor or Tyrael's or even Templar's is quite an adventure!

    I've played a bit in hell, got drops killed monsters, and have never ever seen any Sacred armor of any kind!

    I got 2 IK mauls in a row from Meph, but sacred armors are rare by themselves, let alone unique or set versions:rolleyes:

    Good informative thread though!:thumbsup:

    Where was this, in the Pit?


    As far as I know, MF has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on white (plain) items. So 2 billion MF wouldn't help you find a white Sacred armor (or superior) anymore more than zero MF. In fact, it's probably a hinderance (sp?) because the MF would increase that chance that the armor would be magical/rare/unique, giving you less chance of finding a white sacred armor.

    I could be wrong though (am I?).

    It does in some way. The more mf you have the less low quality, socket, eth and whites you get.
    So If you wanna hunt for a white one, you better put on <100mf.

    Well it isn't worth anything really, unless you want to add sockets, then make it a runeword for your merc.


    Of if you have high STR already, you can wear it yourself (likely only barbs).


    It's just been a personal mission of mine for some time now to find a white freakin' sacred armor, and it's getting annoying I can't find one. lol

    Re: IK Armor Spawn

    I had this guy tell me he found three IK armors from Meph runs, and sold them all in town, cause they are so common. Is this possible or was he just BS-ing me?

    Probably thinking maul but writing armor. Or he was bragging and didn't know it's not possible. ...UNLESS he found them on the WAY to meph... But that doesn't sound right either.

    Re: IK Armor Spawn

    I'll go with the "bragging" version, I told him Meph can't drop IK armor, and he said he dropped it for him.

    The maul, i agree is more common (found 2 of those on 2 consecutive meph runs).

    And I do have a question: the maul requires lvl 76 and some 238 STR (or so), I put 2 x -15% req jewels in one of them (since I have 3), but the lvl req did not go down, WHY? (the STR req went to 158 or so - which is good)

    -Req jewels and Hel runes only work on strength/dexterity requirements, not level req.
