    Item Drop Trick

    I've been hearing rumors about a way to ensure good item drops forever by just doing one simple thing in each mode when getting rushed. Here's what it takes:

    Kill Mephisto and then immediately make a tp. Go to town and talk to Warriv. Leave the game, make a new one and then go to act 4. You have to do this on each mode to ensure it's working properly for each mode. After done correctly, Mephisto in each mode will only drop items for that mode when you kill him forevermore. Meaning no lvl15 drops on hell Meph when you're doing mf runs. Can anyone confirm this?

    That'd be abit difficult to do since Warriv isn't in act 3...(unless you mean to head back to Act 1/2 to talk to him)

    But you're talking about someone's butchered version of the Andy quest drop bug, whereby after killing Andy you talk to Warriv straight away and travel to Act 2. There's no way to get the quest drop from Meph continually unless you kill him with a char that needs the quest.

    And the lvl 15 drops stuff was just gibberish.

    Maybe read some MF guides first? They are linked from stickies.

    You mean that hell Meph will not drop uniques with low quality levels, low level affixes or from low TCs anymore if you do it as you said ? As Orphan said, it seems to be a screwup of the Andariel quest drop bug. It's nonsense, it won't work. There are no "items for that mode". High-level monsters simply have a broader selection of items they can drop and there is no reason why the "low" items shouldn't drop anymore.

    I think that somebody invented that to show off a bit, by pretending to know things which he doesn't have a clue about.

    Re: Item Drop Trick

    This is a spawn of another rumor going around. I think the original went something like this:

    "When you kill Mephisto the first time for quest, go through the red portal to Act IV, then take the waypoint back to A3 and quit the game. Now on your consequent kills he will drop quest loot, but after killing him you always have to go through the red portal to A IV and waypoint yourself back to A3."

    One of the more grey rumours if you ask me, not nearly as entertaining as the "Kill the UT with 8x4 SoH's in your inventory and you'll get a 20-20 PTorch evey time..." ones.
