Post 1.3:

For Bosses? 1 guaranteed w/5 stacks of NV, no guarantee 4 or less.

For stationary Purples? No.

For random Purples? They're treated as an elite pack.

For Blue/Yellow? It's still based on chance but, that chance is increased greatly.

Since I can't tell the colors apart, what's the difference between the blue and purples?

meh I just go directly to start of Imprisoned Angel quest and go through the whole thing. Usually get 5 stacks of NV before Warden biggrin.gif

In your situation, I don't really think you could distinctively tell them apart.

There are 2 kinds of "purples".

Bosses/Mini-Bosses which are stagnant and exist, point a, b and c.

Then there are unique "purples" that exist because that's where they spawn and you got lucky.

They have the same stats as the elite packs...Are often a bit easier/harder actually, depending on who you get but, they're completely random.

Like I said, I don't really think with your color-blindness you could differentiate the two apart.

I've only ran into @ 15-20 because of how rare they are...

Hrmmm.

OK. The reason I was curious is because the Jailer according to rctrucker drops 1 rare guaranteed. He is not suppose to have any guaranteed drops. Will this mean that after 1.03 it will be one guaranteed drop + the unguaranteed drop? I personally don't think so either but we will see.

I don't know if im just unlucky or are the drops in this game just stupid, i usually get blues very rarely yellows ( I only got blue drops from beating diablo on nightmare) and whatever yellows I do get are just stupid with stupid stats on them, monk fists with stacked intelligence? monk crowns with stacked intelligence and strength? Most of these items are so useless I can't even sell them on the auction house, right now to gear my dude I have to pretty much just buy stuff on the auction house because these loot drops are terrible. Its not only my guy too but follower items as well templar relics with nothing but intelligence? Thats just moronic. Also alot of the time if I do get a good yellow its not even for my class, Im running a monk but always get good barbarian drops.

Also does anyone's game lag like crazy and just generally run like crap when steam is running? As soon as I turn steam off my game runs fine.

With 5 stacks of NV, any static "purple" (I'm only picking colors because there's universally less confusion, with the exception of Crazy) is supposed to drop 2 rares right now +/- the chance to drop more depending on MF etc.

AFTER 1.03 with 5 stacks of NV, any static "purple" is supposed to drop 1 rare +/- an chance to drop more depending on MF etc.

On random purples/yellows/blues you're currently getting an increased chance to drop rares right now, by item...but, no guarantee.

AFTER 1.03, you're getting a MAJOR INCREASED chance to drop rares even before NV...So, consider whatever the chance is now, increased by a lot.

They're also buffing the quality of item you'll receive AND where they drop...I.E. Act 1 is getting an increased chance so on and so forth.

That's what I took from what he said...

I can go back and check. More recently I have been doing butcher runs with over 150% MF from my gear alone, I would have to strip it all off to see if he does drop a guaranteed 2 rares.

Speaking of MF gear, has anyone seen the script/addon that equips all your MF gear in 1 second, with one button click?

That was my interpretation as well, but for a mini boss that was already dropping an unintended rare, we may luck out and get 2.

Awesome! Would be glad to find out about that. As for the script, no I have not. Wouldn't that cause you to lose all your stacks though? I wish we had skill and armor pages though, so we can quickly fast equip different spells and armor builds.
