    On Mephisto and Azurewrath

    Azurewrath
    Phase Blade

    Required Dexterity: 136
    Required Strength: 25
    Required Level: 85
    Sword Class - Fastest Attack Speed
    Indestructible
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 87
    Fingerprint: 0x6b58ee0a
    +9 to Strength
    +9 to Energy
    +9 to Dexterity
    +9 to Vitality

    After losing my original map seed with my sorc /clicked on normal instead of hell/ , reloaded my .org backup ATMA file , checked the seed and used the command.

    Azurewrath fell from MEphisto. Item Level is obviously 87. Mephisto is lower.

    How ?

    Is this a side effect of the -seed command ?

    Hell Meph is lvl 87 monsters, so he can drop it. In fact running Meph is maybe the easiest way to get Azurewrath

    Meph is level 87. So there's nothing unusual here at all.

    Thanks Lpr, thanks Shade,

    Actually there is something unusual.

    It was in this forum that I read there were 4 /four/ items Hell Mephisto could not drop - Tyrael's, Azure, Arachnid's and -whatever-the-name-I-have-forgotten.

    By now I've found three Arachnid's off Meph and when I asked /remember - I read HERE about Meph's no-drops on the above/ I read that there were actually two items he could not drop - Azurewrath and Tyrael's.

    Now I got Azurewrath and ask again,
    Could someone tell me, once and for all, please,

    What exactly Mephisto cannot drop ?

    Thanks in advance !

    That's not quite correct. Mephisto can drop Phase Blades since he has a cap of TC78 and Phase Blades are TC75. However, the qlvl for Azurewrath is 87. This means that Mephisto (mlvl =87) can drop it but other creatures which can drop from higher TCs but have lower mlvls (e.g Pindleskin with mlvl 86 and TC cap of TC87) *cannot* drop it.

    After reading my answer above, you'll realize that Mephisto cannot drop any set/unique whose base item is above TC78. He can drop Arachnid's Mesh (qlvl=87, base item is Spiderweb Sash in TC63) and Azurewrath (qlvl=87, base item is Phase Blade in TC75) since his mlvl (87) is high enough to drop unique/set versions of *any* base item he can drop but not Tyreal's (or Templar's) Might since these have base items (Sacred Armor) that are TC87.

    Thanks, Doc !

    Information appreciated ! :worship:

    Just as a sidenote.

    Unless a person is running for Sacred Armours in particular - don't you think Meph has turned to be an even more lucrative MF hunt target than he was in 1.09 ?

    Meph is unable to drop any item in TCs 81, 84 or 87, so there's a few more things he can't drop :)

    Sorry, Bob,

    I usually put /text/ in my usual way instead of putting (text) into normal brackets - I prefer the couple of forward slashes - no shift needed and on the same key on the keyboard. :teeth:

    according to www.d2exp.com tyraels might, azure, aracnid mesh, ammy charm and constricting ring are the only uniques that cannot be dropped by meph hell, and 2 of them are impossible in normal games.

    Ah, but d2exp is telling you what can't be dropped in Durance 3. Meph himself can't drop above TC78 - but any random bosses (Blood Lords, Undead Stygian Dolls) can drop from TC87, but won't be high enough level to drop Tyrael's.

    Azurewrath and Arachnid Mesh can be dropped by Meph and these random bosses, as we've already established :)

    You are not interpreting the data correctly. What it shows is for the regular creatures in those areas and not for the Bosses/Superuniques. Due to the area level effect, the regular creatures in Durance 3 get a boost in their TCs to what you see but not Mephisto.

    so for high lvl uniques you diont need to run meph, just those monsters leading up to him, althoguh they have a lower chance of uniques, they can drop most items.

    You're thinking of Pindleskin, who is mlvl 86, whereas Meph is mlvl 87. Pindle cannot drop those because they are qlvl 87. However, Pindle can drop a longer list of items that Meph can.
