Why can I buy Berserker Axes from Hell Hratli at lvl 79?

    Can someone help me figure this out? Arreat Summit lists Berserker Axes as having qlvl 85, and you can shop things with ilvl of clvl+5, which would only be 84, which shouldn't allow qlvl 85 items to spawn. But I just bought 3 Berserker Axes with my lvl 79 barb. How is this possible?

    If I remember correctly (probably not) the inventory check is actually tied to the base item, not the elite version.

    So your shopping check looks like this:
    1. Can this vendor sell the base item?
    2. Is the HellUpgrade applied (small chance)?

    There's a shopping calculator floating around out there, but I usually just hope for the best.

    qlvl for base items and qlvl for uniques/sets aren't the same qlvl, even though they share the name and abbreviation.

    monsters as low as 81 can drop berserker axes, as long as they are not in act 5 I think. I don't remember the whole calculation, but I do remember that I thought it was complicated and didn't bother with it ten years ago ;)

    Thanks guys! The shopping calculator link I had was broken! Apparently Hell Hratli can always sell Berserker Axes, no matter what level you are (although the chance increases as you get higher level). This is great news!
