MF Area-Levellist 85+/84/83/82

This is a vey useful list to find all those nice MF-ing areas, once you get bored of boss-running. Though these areas might take some time to yield good items, the poitive aspect is, that they can drop ANY item in the game. Basically you are running through an area crapped to the top with Pindles ;)
Another nice thing is that you will gain exp when running those areas, even when you are lvl85+

To explain why these areas can yield all items in the game:
... The highest TC in patch 1.10 is TC 87, which includes all items from qlvl 85 to 87. Previously, a TC 90 still existed, but all items of this TC have now been included in TC 87. ...

...
When the monster level has been determined using the area level, the monster properties and the treasure classes for the monster type will be recalculated and reassigned. If a higher treasure class has been calculated for a monster, it will now drop items of that new class. What is interesting in this regard is that the treasure classes will only be upgraded and not downgraded, which means that the monster will drop as originally specified or better after the level adaptation. In the game difficulty "Hell", there are now (from Act 1 on) various areas with the very high level of 85, which promise excellent success for "Magic Find" (see the following table with the area levels). ....

Bosses in those lvl85 areas will mostly have lvl86/87

[I know i missed some information here, so maybe you Borlag can repost that here too. I just forgot what it was :/ ]

I think that kind of summs it up, so here's the list :D

Sorry Melianor, don't have the list anymore as my home comp was set to delete everything upon closing browser :( Will double check if I forgot anything at work computer (btw reposted your post earlier, as I found that one at work comp, along with some other stuff)

I do have this though: http://www.lap.ttu.ee/one/d2/arealvl/

The explanations for the area levels (If I remember right):

alvl 85, all monsters have a good chance to drop from the TC87 which is the highest now. All monsters can drop all items.

alvl84, all monsters have a moderate chance to drop from the TC87, only uniques and champions can drop all the items

alvl 83, all monsters have a small chance to drop from the TC87, only uniques can drop all items.

Act bosses ignore alvl, this explains why Mephisto cannot drop all the items.

I'm trying to get a list of all monsters and their levels. Where can I find such a list?
http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/

Under "Monsters" you will find a very comprehensive list. But in concern of the areas in hell this does not matter since ALL monsters in those specific areas are lvl85 all the time!

For Nightmare or Normal that might be useful.

From the Bossmonsters Ball and Pindle on Hell can drop all items in the game if i remember right.

@borlag thx for adding that info again :)

Here's the information salvaged from "another place":

85 Pit Level 1
85 Pit Level 2
85 Mausoleum
85 Maggot Lair Level 3
85 Ancient Tunnels
85 Sewers Level 2 (Kurast)
85 Forgotten Temple
85 Ruined Fane
85 Disused Reliquary
85 River of Flame
85 Chaos Sanctuary
85 The Worldstone Keep Level 1
85 The Worldstone Keep Level 2
85 The Worldstone Keep Level 3
85 Throne of Destruction
85 The Worldstone Chamber

84 Maggot Lair Level 1
84 Maggot Lair Level 2
84 Sewers Level 1 (Kurast)
84 Ruined Temple
84 Disused Fane
84 Forgotten Reliquary
84 City of the Damned
84 Drifter Cavern
84 Halls of Pain
84 Halls of Vaught

83 Underground Passage Level 2
83 Crypt
83 Claw Viper Temple Level 2
83 Flayer Dungeon Level 3
83 Durance of Hate Level 1
83 Durance of Hate Level 2
83 Durance of Hate Level 3
83 Plains of Despair
83 Frozen River
83 Glacial Trail
83 Icy Cellar
83 Nihlathaks Temple
83 Halls of Anguish
83 Infernal Pit

The 85s - all monsters will be able to drop from TC87 with a "good" chance, and champions and uniques will be able to drop all items.

84s are not quite as good, all can drop TC87 but with a "small" chance, only uniques can drop all items.

In the 83s, all monsters can still drop TC87 but some unique items cannot be dropped.


This basically means that in my previous post there were some major flaws, especially with who can drop what. But this one has the correct info.

Actually they scale in NM too, but there aren't any high-level areas in unexpected places there. Normal is unaffected by level scaling.

Pindle is able to drop all base items (TC87) but he's only level 86, thus he can't drop Tyrael's Might, Azurewrath or Arachnid Mesh.

Unique monsters (and their minions) have mlvl = alvl +3, Champions have mlvl = alvl +2.

Any monster with their own special TC (including but not limited to The Countess, Griswold, The Smith, Hephasto, Nihlathak, all Act Bosses) will drop only from their own TCs. Other bosses who drop from the 'normal' TCs (including Pindle, Thresh, Eldritch, etc.) will be calculated for as normal Unique monsters.

It doesn't. Mephisto actually has the best effective chance in the game to drop Azure.

Good reason to look here for information concerning Pit runs and other lvl85 areas...
