Nephalem Valor Issue

NV only increases your chance, it does not guarantee rares.


Ah look, another useless troll post. Gotta love it.


5 stack guarantees one rare


theres a bug out there that occasionally makes it so that they wont drop a rare, but this is not common and for the most part you are correct.

Have to have 5 NV the moment you kill another elite pack in order to see at least one rare. meaning, you will definitely see at least a rare item from your 6th elite pack.

the only known bug is the one from act4 I believe. The rest of the so-called "elite pack" that don't drop you a rare item are probably the ones with purple names... which they don't drop !@#$ nor give you NV after you kill them.

"In patch 1.0.3, a full five stacks of Nephalem Valor guaranteed one rare item from all champion and rare packs, and one rare instead of two from bosses. As of patch 1.0.3b, all bosses are guaranteed to drop at least 1 Rare item for players with 4 stacks of Nephalem Valor and at least 2 Rare items for players with 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor."

They lied. The champ monsters with purple names don't always drop them.

You must be changing your skills a lot.

Perhaps people are killing unique monsters and thinking they are elite. Unique monsters neither grant stacks nor grant guaranteed rare.

Reread the quote, "... Nephalem Valor guaranteed one rare item from all champion and rare packs ...", and then consider if the purple text champions are included as a champion pack.

Why do the community managers keep posting in the most trivial threads?

Sometimes only 3 of 4 champs are attacking you. The last one then is stucked, perhaps behind a breakable door or between two beds. Search the area, if there is any fourth champ left. In my case they splitted up over 2 screens and it was a confusing search, because I didn't realize that the last one was so far away. xD

Btw. there is one snake mage champ in the very first sewers of act 2 which has no other mates and gives one NV. Kind of a bug too, I think. Found it three times so long.

This happened to me a few days ago in Act 2 Dahlgur Oasis, but it turned out that the last monster in the elite pack went wandering off somewhere. After circling back to the area, I eventually found the Naga snake guy, killed him off and got the NV stack.

This has happened to me a lot lately as well key farming in act 1. When it happens to me it's usually the 1st yellow elite I run into outside of a dungeon, and only if I have no nv yet. If I kill a blue elite pack 1st everything seems fine after that. Weird....
