    Name change, why?

    Why, in 1.10, did they change the name of Nosferatu's Coil to Siggard's Stealth? I don't get why they would rename an item for apperently no reason...

    Why do they name a unique shako Harlequins Crest? WHy is a unique monarch Stormshield? why is a unique helment named Vampire Gaze?

    You've missed my point entirely. I want to know why they CHANGED the name of an already established item?

    There has to be some reason for it. They don't just go and make a patch to change the name of "Titan's Revenge" to "Pointy Thunder Stick".

    Yes I did.Either I am blind or my vampirefang belt is named Nosferatu's Coil and it is not the first one.I play B.net Europe realm which is 1.10 as far as I know.Also you can check the trading forums.There are loads of Nosferatu's Coils for trade.

    Oh,here is the explanation.If you find Vampirefang belt in 1.10 it is Nosferatu's Coil.If you find Vampirefang belt in 1.09 and upgrade to 1.10 the belt is renamed Siggard's Stealth.Right from The Arreat Summit.

    th5418, You're mistaken. I just found a "nosferatu's coil" yesterday, and I never played on Battle.net until WELL after the 1.10 patch came out. I don't know where you get your info, but it has to be incorrect.

    I'm on USEast, non-ladder, and it dropped from the Council on Durance of Hate, level 3.

    :EDIT: That's very odd. Do they have different properties? Why else would they do that?.....

    Gah... is it so hard to look on the Arreat Summit at a Nos Coil?!

    http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/elite/ubelts.shtml
    (and read the Note on the bottom)

    Notice that the new Nos Coil has a varying mod of 5-7%ll, whereas Siggard's Stealth, aka the 1.09 Nos Coil, has a non-varying mod of 5%ll, iirc.

    Lets look on the bright side. If they did this to every item, no one would complain that they just bought some 09 set items and didnt get the boni.

    NOT EXACTLY i have a Nos coil i have had since 1.09 and i upgraded to 1.10 and its still called "Nosferatus Coil". I was wondering why it didnt change its name too.

    Now that's strange.I guess the whole renaming thing is messed up.
