The Minotaur Ruins duplicating Items from Loot

Unread post by Steve » Fri Jan 04, 2019 6:41 pm

Just experienced something weird!

In the Minotaur Ruins, every chest my PC opened had at least a Banded Mail item (some chests other items as well). But each chest, this same normal Banded Mail.

I thought it weird but meh, until...then I had an encounter with 2 Minotaurs, and both of them dropped the same +1 EB vs. Chaotic quarterstaff. Coincidence? Highly unlikely at this point.

So, maybe it was a funny day for the Loot System or what, but still weird that exact similar items would drop one after another, and that all the chests would contain the exact same item (but/and sometimes other non-similar items).

Go figure?!?

I've noticed that sometimes a gold-name mob will spawn with a couple of adds and they'll all share the same loot. Possibly somehow affected chests if there's something slow about the loot-gen script :think:

The item duplicating in Loot happened to my PC again, yesterday, in the Wytch Cave area map!!

Tell me I'm a lucky duck and have some uber cool special PC that gets item duplicating Loot from now on. Oh...how Ao has granted me a great wish come true!! :twisted:

Got 3 times doubled loot items today in the abandoned chapel. (3 pairs of items with the same random name and stats).

This isn't uncommon and has happened for years. I only get this on named copper rings or rings with negative stats dropped by monsters. :|

Strange. 7 years counting and this is the first time I see Random Named Items duplicated across ALL CHESTS in an Area, or duplicated Random Named items dropping on mobs (exact copies in loot drops).

But there is a first for everything I guess! :think:
