It can definitely be legit. All magic/rare/set/unique items can be level 99 because that's hell baal.

ok works for me.
If AE or krem feel like closin or deletin this post be my guest
They rarely/never do that to threads with even the smallest value. I bet this one will somehow turn into some big discussion, because people like me won't just let it die. :p

@Killmesh, if you want to satisfy your curiosity a bit further, read a few pages of the item find thread, people find nice items off baal quite ofter, all with item lvl 99.

The ilvl 99 item is under suspicion if it is white or grey item, because only Baal is mlvl 99 and he can't drop white/grey items. And don't forget that gambled items are from range -5/+4 ilvl from character level. (You can't gamble white/gray too)

yeah, and by doing this you can sharp up your skills 'cause this is the most challenging area in the game plus you get a truckload of exp like there's no tommorow, you know

Confirmed. My amazon proudly wields it as the vessel of her Lightning Fury! :) Found it a little less than a year ago, maybe?

I think there needs to be an FAQ with the basics of figuring out unlegit items...
Nice idea, fishy.

However, it can (or most likely, it will) be a double-edge sword.
New "non-legit" members who want to trade are usually unaware of certain parameters which increases their tendency to "slip" about their malicious activities.
If an FAQ is created, then they will know about these parameters and are able to go around it or something.

Just my opinion on the matter. ;)

Dunno, if there's always a "is ilvl 99 legit" thread on the first page the info is there anyway. And let's face it, no newcomer reads the FAQs unless pointed that way first.

They'd have to read the FAQs. Based on the number of people who ask about EUs/Durf/the squid, they can't even bother to read the general SPF FAQ. Why in heck would they bother to read a specific FAQ?

And it would make the rest of us better at catching thingies that are "off"

My only problem is that most people wouldn't bother to read it anyway...

But you could link to the FAQ when somebody asks the question, making them feel sheepish while doing less work yourself. (compared to typing an answer) Gets 2 birds with one stone... :teeth:

actually, there's no way to say for sure that an item is legit. you can only say that it's not, and if that's not the case, the item "might be legit". yet many hackers can't make a possibly legit item :rolleyes:

Actually, and just because I'm a perfectionist (and I certainly don't intend this as a flame), there is a perfect way to say for sure that an item is legit.

Find it yourself.

That's the only way. And of course there's no way to prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt to anyone else (unless they themselves saw it drop too).
