    Insane luck streak?

    I've been running Mephisto on my blizz sorc for the past 3 days (had to start over, and I was newbie to begin with so this is my only decent character). I'm still wearing a crown with 3 ptopazes, lol.. And not even 200% MF.

    To my perspective though, I've been getting extremely lucky. In 150 mephisto runs, here is what has dropped:

    Stormshield
    Verdungos
    Nosferatu's Coil
    Buriza-do Kyanon
    Reaper's Toll
    2x Bonehew
    2x Cerebus' Bite, one of them essentially perfect (+4 SS, +120% AR, 10% LL, etc)
    Cold Facet 5/3
    IK gloves/maul/helm (upper level CB and MF on maul/helm)

    That is all of the rare stuff that I can recall off the top of my head. There's even more.. Is this normal? I never got this much good stuff under the old ladder, and I ran Mephisto almost twice as much as I have now.

    its not a lot, if it was actually 150 runs. I'd consider it not far from average, esp with only +200% mf.

    I found a few nice items last night on only 3 runs (Arach mesh, Guillarmes face, and other lesser) character has +~200%mf + 188 % mf on switch.

    Hrm, that's good to know that I will be having this kind of continued success when I do Meph runs :)

    Edit: Yes it was 150 runs. My game name is always mephy + the number of the run. So the next game I make will be mephy151

    On a side note, you mentioned finding an arachnid mesh from meph. I thought the tc for arachs (81 right) was higher than what meph (78) could drop; am I wrong?

    Hehe, either he's BSing, or it dropped from a chest (possible), or the game crashed (or some invisible player dropped an unid spiderweb sash.

    lik omg mehp cant drop teh archnid mesh!!!111!1! :rolleyes:



    Just because you have never gotten one from him before doesn't mean he can't drop it. I have gotten about 6-7 off him before.

    Anyway, nice job on the finds.

    D2Data is well and truly out of date, its only good for a rough guide.

    With 0% MF - Mephy will drop approx 1 every 2,626 runs.

    So, maybe I'm an outdated person ;)

    It's been working for me well so far. Do you have any other suggestions?

    Edit: You're probably going to say ATMA. Am I right? :p

    Meph can drop item up to TC 78 and his mlvl is 87, so he can drop Arachnid Mesh - and Azurewrath as well.

    D2data.net used the wrong Mlvl for the calculations on drop rates and such. Its data is wrong for just about every monster.

    Jaimes: The ATMA drop calc is almost flawless, with only two known errors left: Flayers have half the drop rates listed and the odds for the Countess are a bit off because of a complex treasureclass.

    Well, the loot for the last 107 runs has been terrible lol. I kept getting duplicates of Ethereal Edge.. and the way I play I couldn't give a crap about having multiple of the same item when I already have a good one, so I just gave them away..

    Got a perfect poison die facet and a perfect Tgods (midlevel Tgods too), Lidless, I didn't get much cool loot aside from that.. :(
