    Lower Kurast Special Chest Drops (Bring your LK High Rune Screenshots)

    Something weird is happening in Lower Kurast. :grin: We've had three Ber rune drops where the items that pop out of the chest are the same. These drops haven't occurred on the same LK map, so we know it's not a -seed command abuse issue. It also happened with two different people, indicating that is probably an effect of a game mechanic. Here is DC's hypothesis:
    I don't have nearly the technical knowledge of the game to understand the mechanics of Special chest drops. (Note, we are talking about the special chests, like those in LK, not Sparkly chests like in the Pit 2.)
    Anyhow, like DC, I would be interested in looking at some more results from this. So, if you run Lower Kurast, bring your screenshots of your high rune drops from those special chests. (If you run other special chests, like in the Arcane sanctuary, post those as well.) I'm thinking maybe post Um and above? Of course, if anyone has any code digging information to add, that would be welcome as well.
    I'll start with the screenshots that started this:

    EDIT2:
    Try altering the forums.diii.net to diablo.incgamers.com/forums/ in the links above.
    I'll try and tidy this more later.

    I don't make many screenshots, but I remember a HC Sur dropping from the LK superchest with armour rack, along with it a quiver of arrows and something blue...

    Just a quick question, are you guys playing with /players8? I mean, I've been running LK in hell with /players8 with my hammerdin, just finding every chest, stash, stand, log and what not I can find and I haven't gotten anything good, let alone, lots of drops like that, although I have no mf...luckily that has nothing to do with runes though :)

    Yupp done at players8, sadly havent got the screenie from my HC sur I got from Sewers lvl 2.

    You need to do lots of run to get anything good, but one of the benefit is the high amount of Charms and jewels you get there

    Could just be obscured by item spam, you can't see the Oil potions in the second sreenshot either. But all these Ber runes so far look very similar:shocked:

    Yeah. It could be that it chooses one less number of drops, or one more, or such, one one (or more) of the picks, but the Ber+Arbalest+Vambraces+Gothic Plate or whatever (and perhaps along with some more, fixed items) would be one single pick for the chest...

    EDIT: As nepeta brought up, it could explain the high number of Bers compared to other high runes from LK chests, if this only happens to Bers...

    Are these special chest repeatable on one game? Or are they like once a difficulty type of chests?

    You can rerun them, like an Act Boss. In LK, the special chest will remains in its same location, run after run, as long as the map seed is not changed.

    Nope, they always appear near the bonfire on the LK map, so you can run them all you want. (Many maps have more than one bonfire.) Here is a post with a picture of what to look for here:

    Can someone remind me how game picks drops? rune check ---> magical check---> check for unique...things like that.

    This thread also reminds me of unique/green item drops ONLY from pit super chests (or was it LK chest)...maby drops are fixed in some kind of combinations...

    Sry for OT.

    I know it's nothing special, but hey it's a start, and since I need it, it's a warm welcome. Thank you cattle for the heads up, i'll try do to my best on keeping you informed on any other drops.

    Just for interest, were all the characters created in-game or were they ATMA generated? I think ATMA creates the same Normal map seed for different characters. Even if it created different difficulty maps, could the drop mechanics be similar?

    I've never created a characted intended for actually playing in ATMA. My bers were both found with the same character, though on different maps.

    My theory has to do with a 'timeseed'.

    Both of my bers dropped at the, more or less, exactly same time of the day. It could be just a coincidence though.
