This thread's purpose is to either prove or disprove the fact that in Diablo 2, top-end items dropped consistently. So, I've made a MF Sorceress with extremely good Magic Find gear. Her MF is 483%. This MF is above average, but is not the highest possible.

I'll be killing Andariel, Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal. The reason I am not killing Duriel, is because of the tediousness of finding him, and because he was not farmed by a lot of people.

Here are pictures of the drops on each kill. I will separate the drops into three categories. These categories include "hardly worth anything," "kinda worth something," and "worth a lot." If an item has no value, it will not be listed.

Number of kills: 21

3 of each so far

Diablo 2 bosses did indeed drop a lot of rares, unique, and set items. The difference, was that the extremely good and high priced items, drop extremely rarely even with my MF. Your memory of you getting better items far more often, is just an allusion. The items you received were just more varied in text color.

In Diablo 2, top-end items dropped consistently -

I'll be killing Andariel, Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal. The reason I am not killing Duriel, is because of the tediousness of finding him, and because he was not farmed by a lot of people.

**My stats:**http://i1238.photobucket.com/albums/ff491/adam4eva/Diablo/MyMF.png

Here are pictures of the drops on each kill. I will separate the drops into three categories. These categories include "hardly worth anything," "kinda worth something," and "worth a lot." If an item has no value, it will not be listed.
