    Flying Scimitar Question

    Hello all, I was reading up on where Flying Scimitars spawn, and all it says is they spawn from 'traps in Act 1'. Can someone tell me which traps exactly makes them spawn? I know it's not any barrels in the Jail levels 1-3, or any Barrels in the Catacombs (because there aren't any) If someone knows the answer, I'd gladly like to hear it =D

    They are in all acts, I think. And any trap can spawn them.

    Yeah, I've only see them activate in Act 2, never in other acts.

    They spawn in all area's of act two, no matter the difficulty. Can't really recall anything spectacular about them in norm and nightmare difficulty but in hell they spawn dual element immune. Lightning and fire if i recall correctly, at least that i've seen lately.

    They can be found in other places besides Act 2. They just appear in that particular act the most.

    I've seen one spawn after opening a casket in the Flayer Dungeon. They spawn all over the place in the Matron's Den as well.


    On a seperate note, the last time I came across a couple, one of them turned into a Coldsteel Eye. That was rather unexpected especially with a character with 0 MF.

    My experience is that chests in act 2 are most likely to spawn those flying scimitar. However, since 1.11, at the place where lilith exists, those chests are EXTREMELY likely to release them.

    One more interesting point I noted: Those flying scimitars tend to return to their original form when dead ---- They very often give scimitars and its exceptional and unique forms :lol: . I suppose you could just farm them in lilith's place (if you have so many keys) to get the particular unique scimitars. Anybody notes the same?

    Yes, they do have increased chance of dropping Scimitars and upgrades (norm = norm, norm+excep = nm, norm+excep+elite = hell).

    They spawn with a rare scimitar equipped btw.

    Yeah, I know they spawn like hotcakes from barrels in the Matron's Den, but I was hoping to find an easier access place to farm them (I need the white Cutlasses they drop) So Act 2 would be the best place then?

    convert the nearest regular monster into a champion or unique version

    this can also apply to things like bird nests, trapped souls, evil windows (act 4), etc.

    Re: Flying Scimitar Question

    I wonder if the Den thing is a bug in the programming code. I mean, it was intended, or someone messed up very badly?

    Anywhere in Act 2? Even the Maggot Lair? I think I've never found one there.

    Re: Flying Scimitar Question

    Yup, I've fought several there as well, iirc (my gut feeling, not a clear statistic) they "tend to spawn" more frequently underground in act2 (tombs/caverns/lairs)

    PS: you dug up an almost 8 year old thread just to ask that?
