    MF: Diablo dropping SoJ?

    Forgive me if I get this totally wrong, I've read a bit on magic find but still a bit confused by it.

    I downloaded ATMA drop calculator, I put in my MF of +491% and the item I'm looking for (SoJ). It reports that my "unique" MF rate is about 165%.

    Thing is, it rated Diablo in Normal as the mostly likely to drop SoJ.

    (ranked 1st) 1 : 1337 Diablo The Chaos Sanctuary - {mlvl 110}
    (ranked 3rd) 1 : 1775 Diablo - (N) The Chaos Sanctuary - {mlvl 110}

    I read around where's the best place to drop SoJ, and nobody ever mentioned Diablo as being likely. So far I've been running nightmare cows, but found sod all... any suggestions what's going on here? :scratchchin:

    Nightmare Andariel is the best bet.

    She can only drop 3 of the unique rings at that point, so your odds of getting an SOJ are better.

    mlvl 110 is the diablo clone thingy guy, not normal Diablo

    Gorny is correct about NM Andariel, I think it's 1:31 unique rings are SoJ

    So is that 1:31 of the unique rings she drops will be SoJ, or she has a 1:31 chance of dropping it per kill? That would seem a bit too easy =\. Assuming it's the first, what's the odds of her dropping a unique ring at all?

    If you don't want to work it all out a link to a decent calculator would do :thumbsup:

    Thanks anyway, I'll give it a try.

    It's 1 in 31 unique rings.

    ATMA will work in this case. If you want just the chance for any unique ring, then use atma to find the chance of getting each of the 3 lowest unique rings and add those number up.

    ATMA really should exclude the DClone drops :unimpressed:

    I had a look at the odds with ATMA, came up with 1:222 to drop nagelring and 1:222 manald heal, forgotten what it said for SoJ but it was in the thousands so I may be running Andy for a while... did 97 runs this evening and got 1 nagelring with 16% MF. Grah. I can see why people use bots now. Will try again tomorrow I suppose =/

    Forget the bots. Imagine the feeling whenever you do ID the SoJ. There's no Bot that can cover that feeling.

    Yeah, I did feel pretty chuffed when I found a unique ring... turned out to be not a SoJ, but there was some intense breathing involved in plucking up the courage to speak to Deckard Cain.

    And anyway, bots = not actually playing the game + keylogged =]

    Even if Diablo did have a good chance of dropping one, I think it would be more trouble than it's worth, considering all the stuff you have to do before you can fight him.

    Personally I found 2 SoJs a few days ago, a few hours apart. The first one I found when I killed the Countess in NM (after running her numerous times), and the second I found was on NM Andy. So I would suggest running both of those to try and find one.

    Bugged NM Andariel is of course the best source.

    And all that Atma do with the Diablo clone is just interpreting the treasureclass text file (=table describing drops) right. Because in normal and NM, in that file - there is a Diabloclone who drops all the items Diablo (on the same difficulty) can drop, but with 100% uniques modifiers for unique items. Atma doesn't know that this Diabloclone can't spawn in normal or NM.
