Hey folks, "old" player, new poster. Just started playing again after six years off. I was always a casual player before, playing almost entirely untwinked.
Anyways, this time around, while I won't be playing a lot MORE, I am trying to play smarter. To that end here I am on the forums.
So on to my question: I saw reference in other threads to glitching bosses. What does that mean? I saw someone talking about using to boxes. I have two keys and can run two instances of d2 (usually for self muling) so I have that covered.
Google suggests that I am asking about the following:
Start game with someone who has boss quest completed. Kill boss with someone who hasn't completed quest.
Does that sound right?
This is correct.
I find the best combo is a Barbarian (for battle orders) to create the game, and a sorceress to kill the boss. This will work on any boss (but I think I remember that one of the bosses, andariel maybe, was already 'glitched' in that she doesn't drop misc items)
As far as I remember, the benefit here is that they don't use up item slots with gold, tp's, arrows, etc. But the actual chance that an individual item is rare/unique/set is exactly the same.
