    Quest Rewards: How lucky are you?

    I've been pondering this for awhile now. Upon further investigation into my memory it occurred to me that I have never got a decent quest reward. By quest reward I mean the quests rewards you recieve that are specific items and what not. A Few examples:

    The ring you get in act 1 from the den quest I believe, from akara.

    Another few are the malus quest in act one, I have never got a decent imbue from charsi..ever. Then theres the rare item you get from Anya in act 5 for saving her, nothing there either, always crap.

    So I ask you, ever had any luck with quest rewards such as these?

    In my opinion, the item Anya gives you might not be the best quest reward, as regular items other people use can be so much better.
    I've gotten a decent imbue on a circlet before, but I've never gotten a ring worth looking twice at from Akara.

    I've had some okay FCR rings from Akara
    However the most luck has come from HF's

    The only notable thing I got was a semi-decent "use it for now" mid level paladin shield from Anya. Her reward is extra frustrating for Amazon players, though; If you're a bowazon, you get a javelin. If you're a javazon, you get a bow. If you're a bow/javelin hybrid, you get a spear. x_X!

    I've gotten a couple leech rings (nothing all that spectacular) from the Gidbinn quest.

    Akara gives me crap though. Same for Anya. If I'm a bowazon, I get a stupid maiden spear. If I'm a javazon, I got a stag bow, etc. Any they usually have okay mods, but not anywhere near enough damage.

    As for imbuing, I'm really gonna date myself here:

    Back in the days before exceptional uniques and elite items (yes, no 3rd-tier items, period), everyone used rare lances for their WW barbs and rare gothic bows for their bowazons. One of the best ways to get these, besides duping. of course, was, you guessed it, imbuing! People would level characters to level 29 or whatever was the optimal level just to be able to use their imbues. Well, I once imbued a 156 dmg gothic bow (167 was the absolute max iirc). That was the best bow ever! Too bad once exceptional uniques and elite items were released, I had it replaced within a week :cry: that bow was my baby...

    Charsi gave me a +20 FCR +2 BARB circlet with other good mods once before (on imbue). IF ONLY IT SAYS PALLY ON IT.....

    Out of the hundreds of times that I have done HF in Hell, Pul rune has dropped every time. No exaggeration.
    Imbue has always failed.
    Ring from Akara has always failed.
    Item from Anya has always failed.
    8 years and counting (7 years on the HR and Anya).

    Here's the shield my uber zealer got from Anya:

    Shadow Shield
    Zakarum Shield
    Def: 263
    Chance to Block: 52%
    Smite: 46-46
    dura: 65
    str: 142
    lvl: 61
    +36% e def
    cold: 60%
    light: 49%
    fire: 49%
    poison: 49%
    pdr: 2
    attacker takes 7
    self-repair
    P diamond

    I think everything else was junk. That shield served well until he found a HoZ.

    My fishy got an um from Nightmare HF.

    ATMA read-out (a single player thing).

    That's my best imbue. Decent Resistances and +2 skills. The rest have landed +1 skills or +2 useless trees and useless mods.

    Actually, in Normal Mode you get a bow.
    In nightmare you get a spear.
    In hell you get javelins.

    Where did you hear that? I'm pretty sure I've gotten at least one of each in Normal, not just bows.

    I got two dual leech rings in the last season. One from Akara, one from Ormus. They were good enough for PvM.

    Best I've ever got was a +2 Necro Skills/ life/ mana/ and some resists diadem. Its not great... not even as good as a shako... but my necro can at least walk around with his hair blowing freely in the breeze, not trapped under a brown paper sack like almost everyone else has these day.
