Rare rings and amulets never drop. How do I fix?

Post by Lanboost » Thu Sep 16, 2021 2:16 pm

I searched for the issue and found this thread: https://d2mods.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=65192

I'm suffering the same issues where everything drops except rare rings and amulets. However, I'm a little confused on what to do with the information given.

If I can be guided in the right direction, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Try setting up a test treasure class in treasureclassex and make it drop only rare rings and amulets. And then have a common mob have a 100% chance of using that treasure calss and see what happens. Maybe cows since there are a lot of them.

It could be that rare rings/amulet sare just naturally rare compared to everything else.

I ended up approaching it by changing the Unique, Set, Rare, and Magic column to 933, 910, 1000, and 800 respectively for the treasure class Act 5 (H) Good and now Hell Cows are dropping a really good amount of rare jewelry with a handful of unique and set jewelry and little to no magic jewelry. I don't know if this is the proper way to approach the problem but it works okay for now.

My only other problem right now is that mobs from literally anywhere are barely, if ever, dropping bases, so making runewords is proving to be extremely difficult. Is this an issue I have with my itemratios.txt?

After putting the higher quality chances to roughly 90%/90%/100%/80%, that doesn't leave much opportunity for base items which are generated after all the quality checks fail. You might set rare at 80% and see if that gets you a more preferable balance.
