    On a real Ethereal unique streak here...

    I am at the point now that I am starting to wonder if this is pure chance or not... over the past week or so:

    ethereal hone sundan (great!)
    ethereal ginter's rift (good!)

    ethereal shako (ummmmm, ok i guess a merc could use it)
    ethereal glimmershreds (errrrrr, i guess a vengenge pally could use this...)

    ethereal HoZ (grrr, I really needed one of those)
    ethereal Frostwind
    ethereal Steelshade (actually don't feel so bad here, since even the non-ethereal version is pretty useless)
    ethereal The Redeemer

    not to mention 2x Ethereal Edge and a Wraith Flight, which always spawn ethereal.

    About 60% of the elite uniques i have found are ethereal... AARGH!

    grandfather will never spawn ethereal because it has the "indestructible" mod

    i have a collection of ethereal uniques personally, and if your on east ladder i would like to try to obtain some of those

    Just because something has the indestructible mod doesn't mean it cannot be eth. The Ethereal Edge is one such item.

    Yeah but ethereal edge ALWAYS spawns like that. Grandfather and Doombringer cannot spawn ethereal.

    the only way an indestructible unique can spawn ethereal is if it always spawns ethereal. On a related matter, if u upgrade ethereal ginthers, will it still be ethereal (phase blade has no durability) ?

    ethereal "phase" blade is the same thing as a regular phase blade when upgraded there is no difference so dont do it.

    Although, there have always been times where items like those would spawn as bugged and would be ethereal and without it's usual indestructible mod. I have seen (or heard, don't remember) of a Doombringer like this in 1.09, for example.

    Scruffy, send me a PM if you want to talk about some of these

    Trigger, I have not played a mage pally, so I really don't know if this is good or not -- your input is welcomed. It has good damage, but no inherent IAS so I don't judge this as good enough to ZOD. Is it useable for a pure mage pally?

    Everyone else, I have it on very good authority (with screenshots) that you can upgrade an ethereal dimensional blade to an ethereal phase blade, keeping the 50% damage bonus. It is still listed as ethereal, but it loses the tag "indestructable". Instead, there is NO durability listed (not 0 of 0, but not listed at all), so it is defacto indestructible.

    Of course, I cannot find an ethereal tomb reaver to save my life. darn my luck.

    oh, totally forgot about the 290% ED ethereal bonesnap I found -- was probably the first unique I found in 1.10

    wanted to amend my ignorance. I did not realize that there is a display bug with the +damage modifier of the redeemer (and all new 1.10 unique scepters), so yes, the damage on this should make it Zod-worthy.
