    Found boots with the notorius title: 'Imp shanks'

    Hello all, I may be new to posting here on Diabloii.net, but I have been playing d2 lod for quite some time.
    We have all heard of Imp shanks, and I personally despise hacks/mods/cheats, etc, etc.
    On top of that I would never consider using duped items, I would rather be weaker and real, then stronger and reliant on 'perming' every time I exit a game.
    Anyhow, I happened to find boots with the notorius title.
    Before you all jump on me, let me say I have no idea what the 'duped' versions have for stats, all I know is that these have the same title/name on them.
    Well, here it is:
    Eariler today, I was in a baal run titled simply: 'Baal-313,' pre-buffing at Frigid Highlands, (just boing, casting ts, and frozen armor), when i decided, as usual, to slay Eldritch the Rectifier, who is as most of you know, located just north of the waypoint.
    Well, yellow boots dropped, and as I enjoy finding rare boots, I grabbed them, and identified them.
    turns out they are titled 'Imp Shanks,' which I am assuming is a random spawn title for boots, as I have found other boots with the word 'shank' in them before.
    the stats are as follows:

    Imp Shank
    Scarabshell Boots (they happen to be blue)
    14% Chance to cast level 5 nova when struck
    20% Faster Run/Walk
    Cold Resist +25%
    Poison Resist + 25%

    I suppose my question for all of you is,
    are these the boots everyone talks about/dupes?
    And if so, why these? No offense to users of the duped version, if they happen to be different, but if they are the same, they hardly seem worth duping imho.
    Also, if they DO happen to be the same as the duped ones,
    what is the chance of them spawning again? hahaha.
    seems so strange, I must say, I doubt anyone (if they do have the same statistics) will believe that I found them.
    Please acknowledge the fact that I know not of the duped versions stats simply because I avoid duped items, so bare with me here, be nice. lol.
    :shocked:

    The duped Imp shanks had/have 30% frw, 20% fhr, 18 strength, 35% fire resist, 49% light resist, and 22% poison resist.

    IIRC "Imp" is simply a prefix ascribed to boots with frw and "shank" merely indicates that it is a boot. I believe these boots spawned back even before the expansion was released.

    In other words, purely coincidence.

    I have seen a few rares with the same name, but all the attributes are rolled independent of the name. its possible to get the same name and mods on an item but extremely unlikely

    Heya welcome to the forums & yay another she-wolf on the forums! I think i was baal running with you this morning. =)

    The mass duped imp shanks stats are 30%frw,20%fhr,18str,49light res,35fire res,and 22 pd res. They cant spawn with those stats anymore i dont think so the names are just coincidence i think

    understood

    Well, thank you all for the replies, and as to be expected, well, I've been shunned, hahaha. As is well, I expected this, but couldnt help myself.
    : }

    Hello to you too Kiba, and thanks. Yes i remember baaling with you.
    And I'm of course a fan of your crushing the skulls of humans with ease.

    like you said bro you just happen to find a pair of rare boots with the same name as a popular pair of duped crap that is popular among the realms.

    Drappa I didnt see any problem with your post and I found it interesting. IMO it was well thought out before you posted it.

    dear gods...

    I honestly just found another pair with the same name. Hilarity.
    Diablo in a private game.
    This time in boneweaves with 10% fhr, no res though, and the 20% f r/w. 57% extra gold, and +14 to mana. *laughing* :laughing:
    Further making me realize that i definately should not have posted.
    hahahaha... :rolleyes:

    there is nothing wrong with that question, however i fail too see where people shunned you. JME told you about the mods on the duped version and said it was coincidence, and kiba welcomed you. only one who seemed to 'shun' you as you put it is yetidiah but i dont think he meant it like that.

    anyway i have found imp shanks spawned on boots before too. its not really that uncommon.

    btw i dont use hacks and never heard of the imp shanks before

    Awrooo?
    Ok time to play ambassador wolf.

    JME posted and answered the question first at the same instant yetidiah posted so yetidiah edited that he got beat to the question as in he got pwned because he was a split second slow... -_-



    Gorny is my freind....

    talk aboot misconstrued comments and blowing it out of propoption for all the wrong reasons.

    It means that when i started typing my reply jme had not posted but when i submitted he was there before me, so i was defeated in the first post by jme causing me to post pretty much the same thing as him

    The names of rare items are randomly selected from the list of name prefixes/suffixes for a particular item; it has nothing to do with the mods on the item.
    Eh?
    Unless there have been a bunch of posts deleted/edited, I don't see anyone being insulting.
