    It's not a bug.

    Just luck of the draw.

    What would be the point of MFing if you got good items on every run?
    I haven't found anything good from baal yet, not even charms.
    I've found a few mals/ists & one soj from hell countess, try running her for a change, maybe you get lucky.
    Also, shenk & eldritch are good targets.

    it's all luck, although it does appear to glitch from time to time. i suspect it has something to do with the random number generator. usually, i run meph with around 400 mf, and usually everything he drops is rare or better...usually A LOT better. i scored a cool hydra edge with triple durability, 200+ed, and 30 ias. i can't check on jewelry, bows, or throwing items, but i would say his chance to drop rare or failed set or better is around 80%. the last non-fail magical i got from him was a shako, and that was the only regular magical item i found in over 2 weeks.

    but, some days i get runs of doodoo. in fact, i would prefer failed unique rares to some of the sets and uniques i get from him. usually, if my first run of the day is nada, i'll do something else. however, if it's something good, i'll keep trying. a couple of days ago, i got 2 stormshields in one sitting.

    moral of this story: your mf is (probably) working but your luck is bad.

    Nope, still luck. Real glitches are much rarer than zod runes.

    How about when hell andy dropped nothing? Not even a plain item.

    Make sure you don't kill act bosses near some obstacle (like chest, or Meph near the blood pool, Baal near the pillar...). This will prevent items from dropping, since they have nowhere to drop...

    If you kill them in open space though, you'll always get your items. This is not a bug.

    With no additional players in the game act bosses can drop completely nothing. As long as there is space for Duriel to drop something, he'll always drop a scroll of TP though.
