I'm sooo unlucky

  • #1
    So, yesterday I did MP5 Act 2 key boss about 10 times in a row. Not a single drop. So I decided to take a break and try again today. Today I did the boss 5 times, in a row. Not a single drop.

    Why me?

    I ran this another 3 more times and still to get a single act 2 key drop. I've gotten other keys, but act 2? Nope.

    that's 0.5 ^ 18 = that means 1 out of 262k ppl has same bad luck as yours.

    Wanna hear my bad luck? In 43 paragon lvls I found ONE item that I managed to sell over 10m (and yes I pick up ~98% of yellows).

    I picked up four Dark Mage's Shades today.

    Four.

    That's right. Four of those blasted, worthless witch hats.

    I believe that's unlucky. My quality legendary quota was nerfed for the day.

    To OP: that's a really unlucky streak. We had similar things with keys and organs, which is why we pushed EHP and picked a higher MP level. I feel that MP7 is the minimum to not get frustrated. If your group really really really needs one key, you can even try to find someone who can help you to get one on MP10. It takes us some time b/c the health is insane and we have to put on a bit more EHP gear which in turn gimps DPS, but it's really nice that you know for sure "I'll definitely get a key on this run".

    sorry for the noobness but MP0 has any diference from playing without enabling MP?
  • #16
    MP0 means exactly just "no monster power", yeah.

    for me act 3 key is the hardest to come by =( usually when I had a few runs that didn't drop I change the monster level to lower ones, within 2-3 runs it drop for me.

    Yes.

    At MP0 act 1 and 2 have noticeably worse loot drops, if running those acts, use at least MP1.

    Also, MP directly effects Key/Oragan drops, I believe to the tune of +10% per MP lvl. (MP1 might be 5%, cannot recall)

    Edit:

    Duh, I just re read what you said, no, no difference. ;p

    Well... I did 4 MP4 runs, I got 0 legendaries (I usually get at least 1 since I'm at 300% MF).
    Then... this dropped.

    Just to add, the significantly worse drops are because monster level are as follows on MP0:
    • Act 1: level 61
    • Act 2: level 62
    • Act 3: level 63
    • Act 4: level 63
    On MP1 or higher, all Inferno mobs automatically have level 63. The affix rolls on every item drop are only based on monster level, nothing else; thus the item drops, even if the item is level 63, will not have "godly rolls" (please someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this is how I understood it).

    About the MP levels and keys: it's 5% on MP0, 10% on MP1, 20% on MP2, ... to 100% on MP10. Of course only with NV5. Magic find, paragon level, color of your underwear or any other stat does not have any impact on the likelihood of getting a key.
