No hell meph cannot drop windforce, it is a Treasure Class 87 item.

It can be found in the Pits, Ancient Tunnels, Mausoleum, Pindleskin, WSK2, Baal's Minions and Baal himself in hell difficulty.

There are more but I really cannot be bothered mentioning them.

If you use ATMA you could also use it's inbuilt Drop Calculator to find out which bosses/enemies can drop which items.

IIRC Hell Mephisto cannot drop anything above treasure class 81 (Mavina's Caster etc)

Hope that helps a bit

Joosh :thumbsup:

actually, no. hell meph can't drop tc84 and above items.
you can try running baal, pindle or the lvl85 areas instead =)

edit: pwned =P

I've done less than 1k pindle runs in my life but I managed to get one from pindle :smug:

you luck SOB!

The game's like that though. I've found most of the other TC87 including all the class specific ones in my time but never a Windforce or Grandfather.

Weird.

It's a shame since I really want to find them since they're nice and old school.

WF is one of maybe two or three tc 85 and ups I've ever found. I got a valor back in the day on bnet from diablo, and maybe another unique I can't recall.

then you sir are one lucky person.. lol
I agree. At the same time... I'm lucky if I can find an amn rune anymore... and i've still yet to get my hands on an SOJ. This is why I love this game. In a MP'er game earlier we saw a Corpsemourn drop and I was kinda stunned because I hadn't seen one drop in months. This is why I love this game... so random!

1 from Pindle and 1 from Ancient Tunnels. My suggestion would be to run different locations with different characters so you won't burn out :)
 
Re: where the (beep) can windforce drop

the one thing im terrified of is finding a eth windforce... that would be a real rick in the (beep) lol.

Oh also a quick Brag I just found are Circlet with +2 Lightning skills 20%fcr and 25% cold resists :D so not all bad news here.

Bows cannot be Ethereal - they have no durability to begin with.

Pwned by Hrus.

Re: where the (beep) can windforce drop

One thing that is worth mentioning is that even though Hell Meph can't drop a Windforce, some "lesser" monsters near him (unique, champion and minion Blood Lords in Durrance 3) are capable of dropping it, though their chance is quite small. During one MFO when I was running Hell Meph with mega-MF and killed an aura-enhanced blood lord pack that I inadvertently woke up and had a Windforce drop there.

Not that Durrance 3 is a good place to look for a Windforce. I would say Pindle or level 85 area running are much much more likely to yield results. But, as always, it's better not to set your heart on finding one item but instead just load up on MF, do quick runs, go with the flow, and see what drops. Looking for a particular item is a recipe for disappointment, at least in my experience!

Edit: In the "do as I say, not do as I do" category: I am currently working on 1.07 characters and items and am rack-running for items, and I have a good balrog skin rack. So I really am looking for one particular item, and I just said that is a "recipe for disappointment!"

How long have you been actively looking for a Windforce? I suggest looking up the SPF Elite Runner's thread to get a feel as to the commitment required to get such elite items.

Re: where the (beep) can windforce drop

I got my WF from regular questing somewhere in hell act 2 if I remember correctly. No mf or anything. You dont wanna know how I lost it ;). But that being said, things as rare as Windforce is hardly ever worth the work it takes to specifically search for them. (Im starting to think even a common item such as arachnid mesh is too much of a bother to find)
