set item questions

I had a set piece equipped yesterday when an identical set piece (slightly different stats, but same piece) dropped. Is this a bug? I play v1.11 single player untwinked, no mods. If you have two of the same piece in a one-handed weapon or ring, can you equip them both, and if so, do they count as two set items? Is it legit to use them if so?

It's not a bug, the game doesn't care what you're wearing when it calculates drops (with the exception of MF or course).

You can equip them both I know that. Many people use Angelic Amulet and 2x Angelic Rings for the increase in life and AR on low level duelers. I'm not sure how the bonuses work though, but I'm sure someone will be along to clarify shortly.

it is not a bug, you can use them both and get their partial set bonuses and of course it is legit.

on the example of angelic rings
their stats:

Angelic Halo
Ring
Required Level: 12
Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
Item Level: 59
Fingerprint: 0x1324d2ca
+20 to Life
Replenish Life +6

***Partial Set Item Bonuses***
+12 to Attack Rating (Based on Character Level)
50% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

If you put two rings on a character wearing no other angelic set pieces, the only thing they would give you would be:

+20 to Life
Replenish Life +6

each.

If you added another piece of this set(for example ammy) they would give you:
+20 to Life
Replenish Life +6
+12 to Attack Rating (Based on Character Level)

each. Additionally you'll get bonuses for the ammy, and a bonus for wearing two pieces of the set(if any).

An Unique item cannot drop twice in the same game. You can have an unique equipped from a previous game and it can drop again. Set items can drop multiple times in the same game, sometimes together.

I tend to use the armour as well early on, for the magic find. I do need to find those TC3's somehow, don't I?

The only thing I want to find multiples of in the same drop is unique sacred armors :grin:

Sadly, it tends to be set breast plates, set rings or set double axes instead :sad2:

Is this real? The odds of this happening seem to be astronomical.
IMO, no. It'd be very easy to hack that screenshot - I could do it in about 5-10 minutes in MS Paint.

Although, I think I've seen a 3-GBP-at-once drop screenie before, and that seems more believable (IIRC, i've had 2xGBP in one drop before, but I wasn't impressed enough for a screenshot).


BTW, I offer a cookie to the first person to point out the phrase-with-a-double-meaning in my previous paragraph.

Doesn't any child in Britain go through something similar if they decide it's fun to start swallowing coins? Never seen the parents take photos afterwards mind. :laugh:
