    How exactly does the glitch work

    i know about this thing that enables you to always get quest rewards from Meph, but i dont know precisely how it works or how u can use it.
    can this be done if you have already killed meph and completed the quest?

    Create the game with a character who already solved act 3, then switch to a chracter who hasn't done that so far, so he won't get the quest solved, but still gets a first kill drop.

    IMO it's not worth the efforts. It's annoying to switch between characters, it costs more time, it can lead to more bnet temp bans and you will have to stop at the end of act 3 with that character.

    I agree. I would also like to point out that while your odds of getting a boss to a rare/set/unique when you kill them for a quest reward are improved, it's not like they can drop anything as their quest drop that they otherwise could not drop.

    I think this only applies to Andariel. You'll have to talk to Warriv _after_ your first kill of her, that makes her bugged and you'll always get quest drops from her.

    I wasn't talking about the Andariel glitch. The mentioned technique works with any act boss. And it's not about quest drops, but first kill drops , these are two different things. For example, the quest drop of Andariel is a couple of gems, in addition to her other drops. However, you don't have to do the awkward game creation procedure for Andariel because there's another bug with respect to her first kill drop.

It's hard to know if andy or mephi do a quest or a normal drop though, so not 100% certain about this...
    The gold from the Countess is something else, it's a special event which is tied to the quest. It's actually not from the Countess.

    I'm pretty sure that first kill drops (which only exist for act bosses) are produced as I wrote.

    If all magical armor and weapons are failed set items, it's probably a first kill drop.

    Yeah, I figured that, but the OP talked about quest drops, so I thought maybe he had things confused

    Then I've been going about it all wrong . I usually run all big guys in NM in a permed game made with a char that has done nm cain, but no other quests yet.

    Using this glitch if you're doing just meph runs would be a loss of time, but is there any way to glitch all act bosses?

    The two terms are often mixed. Krischan is right about how it works, but all of you forget one thing: On bnet, there are lots of games up in which you can run meph. Just check the q log, and ignore the spam. Hey, a pub game is a pub game. Works for me.

    Nah, having a char stuck in act 3 pays over time. And you'd be very well able to do glitched andy in that same game, along with ancient tunnels, and maybe summoner.
