    I'm trying to find Cathan's set and Death's set. I'm starting fresh so I have nothing to trade with if you have any of them your willing to part with? I had 3 of the 5 items for Cathan's Traps & 2 of the 3 for Death's Disguise but I lost all of that when I re-installed everything :o
    Is there any place special that I can farm for either of these sets? Or is it still just a normal random chance anywhere?

    Are you playing single player? If so, download ATMA and I can email you a stash with those sets if you want them that way. Otherwise, just run through normal and you should be able to collect the sets with a reasonable number of Baal, Diablo and Mephisto runs.

    You can use the drop calculator here to see what mobs have the highesty chance of dropping a certain item, it even takes into account amount of players in the game/party and your magic find %.
    still, drops are largely random so if you are playing single player you might be better off using a save editor.

    Thanks dmc. I had a little trouble getting it to work but that's because I didn't have the latest version but now it works. I hope :p

    Yes dmc that would be great if you could email them to me. How do I get you my email addy without posting it here so bots can get it?

    Just pm your email address to me. If you want to be ultra safe, put a space in between every character and write "at" instead of "@"

    Click on my screen name (it should be in blue) and then click on "Start a Conversation".

    That's for future reference, as I will start one right now with you and you can just reply with your email address.

    You can..
    keep Type as Item, Quality as Base Item, and for Item select the rune you want (like "Sol rune")

    I had the same problem and since I only play single player, I had neither the time nor the inclination to grind out full sets over endless runs after I had already completed the game.

    The result was my Goblin Pie mod, which added a whole bunch of neat features, including higher and more reasonable drop rates for uniques and set items.

    Unfortunately, I never got around to finishing it, if such a thing was even possible seeing as I was always coming up with new features that I wanted to implement anyway. I also wasn't counting on Blizzard to release any more patches after 1.12, so it's very likely that it doesn't work right with any 1.13 version (not entirely anyway). I was gonna make it compatible at some point, but I just never got around to it and I doubt I'll ever play D2 again.

    Still, this made my experience much more enjoyable and it doesn't make you feel like a dirty cheater by transferring items or editing saves or whatever.

    Dirty cheater? I have to admit that's me. Lol.
    That being said, anyone have a set of Milabrega's Regalia? My Paladin would love you for a very long time :tobattle:

    Welp that's crap. I just killed Andariel and she dropped TWO of the barbarian set helms along with some other stuff. Seriously what are the chances of TWO.
