View Full Version : Question About Finding Blue or Purple Items
07-22-2011, 10:38 AM
I am still playing Act 2 on Normal Difficulty and I am curious about finding Blue items.
I've noticed that it seems that some Blue items drops often on same spots, is this true?
For example, I have found two items of the Ramses Set in the Ramses Tomb on the Valley of Kings with different chars. Although it seems logical I have another example not so logical, because on Act 1 I have found two Oracle's Wreath on the same Tomb with two different chars as well.
I thought that item drops were set ramdonly but now I think it is not.
So if I want to farm an especific set how will I know where to look for it? I know some bosses can drop them with low rates but I am not including bosses on this question.
Does this work with Purple items too on Epic and Legendary?

Drops are random. You can find Telliam's Will from the exact same Satyr mob in Act I Normal with two toons in a row. Then farm the rest of your life and never find it from that same Satyr mob ever again.
If you want blues, farm bosses or just play through early Normal. Lowbie blues drop quite commonly in Acts I and II.

Thanks for the quick reply Irma 2. It was too much coincidence for me to let it pass by without consulting the experts :) . Last night I found a Oracle's Winding on a simple Frozen dead liche at the end of Act 1. This showed me that my observation was wrong.

There are a few regional unique sets as well. Labyrinthine Warsuit (blue Greece), The Sphinx (blue Egypt), Babylonian Raiment and Pride of the Jade Palace (both blue China), and Huo Qubing's Relics (purple China). They can drop anywhere in the particular area, i.e. the Warsuit can be picked up anywhere in Greece, not just a specific area of Greece.

Playing on my now scrubbed Haruspex, I saved his blue he found in greece.

My example is that I found Ketos' Chomp on the Third Domain with three chars in a row, then farmed for hours with another and never found it in the whole of act 4.

Where am I going to find oracles Wreath? Does anyone know what enemy would likely drop it or what act (if it is act specific). Thanks!

It'll drop from Act I onwards as it's an early blue set item. Don't think there's any specific monsters it drops from, although I think my Conjurer got a piece of the set when she killed the Greece Telkine the other day.

There is a problem I don't fully understand with how the game calculates drops that causes those double rare item drops. It's documented in the readme notes for the Defiler's RNG random drop fix feature. It wound up that "random" drops were not really happening randomly.
Since I started playing with the RNG fix turned on, my drops do indeed seem truly random, without all the weirdness of two of the same rare items dropping all the time.
