    Item Drop Grid or Just tell me where Runic Talons will drop?

    Read the title, I'm looking to get a runic talon but since I'm new to ladder I have to farm one like everyone else, So If someone to point me to one or the other that would be super.

    Not wanting to double post but I gave what segai said a try and I got confused.. The best I made guess wise was to just figure the item level of the runic talon and look up bosses level and I was getting baal and his minions. Is that the best or is there a better?

    Go to the single player forum and get yourself ATMA, it has a drop calculator that may be of help.

    Doh! I did not think about ATMA at all... I remember playing with it like a year ago but now It comes back to haunt me thanks.

    I can't undestand how to upgrade it to 1.13 from 1.11. Can someone dumb it down for me?

    If you understand the TC (treasure class) that runics are in, you know in general what can and can't drop them.

    The item generation tutorial goes into great detail on how items are created\generated by the game.

    By finding the runic talons on the wiki, you'll see they're in TC 81 - which means monsters/racks/chests capable of dropping them must be able to drop from TC 81 -

    Immediately, we know they're only found in Hell as nothing in NM is that high.
    Considering TC 84 and 87 are the only ones above it, its pretty rare.
    Also, you expect to find it in areas over 81 in general since you want monsters to be at least level 81 if not higher.

    If you're not familiar with area levels, the wiki has that too.

    Ultimately, the drop calc will tell you what most people do when hunting whites - killing cows has the best drop chance, and it's still not very good.

    As the upgrading basically involves just overriding some files, I'm a little weary of recommending it for someone not familiar with moving/copying/overwriting files as its easy to do something very wrong. (Like not being in the right directory for instance =)

    Try posting your question here: http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=760286

    Or, just use GoMule instead of ATMA for 1.13 characters. =P
