    Not one unique ring in a long time

    Hello.

    I've been searching for the soj for some time now (weeks), constantly doing NM Andariel with my level 84.9999 necromancer... and I've just realized - I played all the characters up to normal baal (finished normal in all), and finished NM in sorceress and finished hell in necromancer, and not ONCE did I get a unique ring... Im not talking about soj, just a unique ring...
    is it normal?
    [edit] Game version is 1.11 btw...

    Keep running her over... and over... and over...





    and over...






    and over some more. I still haven't found a SoJ after 8 mths+ on the realms playing 3-4+ days a week for extended periods of time... or a rune above Um for that matter.

    Are chances of finding good stuff better when playing on battlenet instead of single player, or are they the same (generally)?

    More players in the game = larger drops.
    Of course you can just use /players 8 in single player.

    Stone of Jordan isn't particularly common, no matter what you do to increase your chances (although everything helps). For reference, NM Andariel has a 1/4175 chance of dropping it if you have 200% MF (1/1808 if you have the quest-drop bug active).

    Even other unique rings like Nagelring or Manald Heal have 1/278 chance of dropping from her.

    I have never found a soj. Ever. I dont consider myself a super ancient player. But im still talking in years of diablo play. Not a single soj. 2 unique rings in the same game a couple of times but no soj. Havent had any real use for one either. :laugh:

    i've found 2 in the last month alone.

    try the pit.

    much better results in there than nm andy, despite what everyone and the statistics say.

    Tamoe Highlands. It's a cave.

    But you have to be kidding me. I have run Pits more than NM Andy... but 3 of my SoJs came from her.

    Both of mine came from Hell Meph, and I wasn't even particularly looking for them.. they're still sitting in my stash waiting for me to put them on :)

    Ive done nm andy runs a whole lot, and ive never gotten a SoJ. Only unique ring I ever got was a ravenfrost off of normal baal when I first started.
