    If you play with Zero MF, this happens

    In my boredom at the office today, I decided to try leveling yet another sorc (I like having backups now since I lose them so frequently! :)). I joined a mule game because of the lack of quality games going in Norm, and proceed to walk to Baal.

    I like walking to Baal when solo running, the xp is nice and it gives a shot at this beauty.

    Found at 10:29 CST EHCL while on a solo Baal run.

    Last time I saw one of these drop was in November. I ask you... why are they so overvalued now when they are so easy to find!? I found this with ZERO MF gear on!!!

    Great find Conner. Its funny how 2 of the "best jewelry " can be found in normal ; SOJ and Tals amulet.

    I played sc for almost 1 1/2 and never found a soj. Found my 1st of 5 sojs in hc right after the dupe storm made them worthless.

    Old news!

    I find crap all the time with no MF, its a rather simple strategy!

    I got one with a lvl 27 Barb from a Chest WS2 and it was the first chest right in the middle of the hall and 6 people ran right past it!

    Well Stinger, I was just saying, it's an overvalued commodity. I could buy about anything in the game with it, and it drops in Norm and early NM the most.

    OR, I could sell it to Charsi next time I land in a game that shows SOJs being sold. Yeah, that's what I should do.

    Normal Diablo and Baal for sure. I found my only tals amulet from normal Diablo in 1.09, didn't think it was possible.

    It has a low chance of being dropped by Meph also, or so I heard

    you're one crazy sob, mr mac... just cause it CAN drop in norm or nm, doesn't mean it DOES (at least not for me.... still looking for my first self-found soj...)

    I think I've found 4 or 5 sojs, but none in 1.10. Most of mine dropped at Meph in NM or Hell, but that's just where I mfed the most. I think pindle gave me 1 or 2 as well.

    I found a tals ammy once... like an idiot I traded it! :grrr:

    Tal's Ammy and SoJ are the two most annoying items on my never been found list...and I spend more time playing in norm/nm than most people...you'd think dying a lot would be beneficial in SOME way to me >_<

    Tal's ammy has an item level of 26 even though its level requirement is 67. THis means that any monster from late act3 normal onwards can drop it includnig NORMAL meph. You could walk into act4 normal go outside kill a regular enemy and tal's ammy could possibly drop. Ridiculous for such a powerful item but that is how the system works, i myself found a tal's ammy in hardcore on normal while rushing a friend through norm meph.

    LOL, when you see SOJs being sold, aren't you supposed to sell all your sojs in that game? Pfft, just kidding around ya know. After the sorc is done using it, it goes straight to my Warcry barb because I lost his other soj in a tragic bass fishing accident (obscure reference anyone? anyone?). Tell ya what, the difference between level 45 and level 46 BO is incredible.

    I found alot of SOJs in 1.09 (like 5 or 6)... it's just more fun in 1.10 to find them because people tend to skip over the areas where they drop most commonly, and everyone thinks you can only find them from NM Meph or Hell Baal or some other crazy thing. And having a small collection of these things (I now have 3 again! Woot!) is good for leveling any caster class char.

    Just remember that the odds of a ring being an SOJ are greater when you get the drop from a monster who's level is between 39 and 53.

    oh come on, that's not that obscure... but quite a quality flick. I do believe that that was the most "human" movie I've seen in quite a few years... isn't THAT ironic...

    Fact is that Norm Council Members can drop the ellusive amulaet of Tals. Personally I find it to be an over rated item but it is still a nice one, I have given a few of them away in favor of other items.

    So all you Tals ammy seeking individuals will flod the serves with Norm trav runs with 800 MF and find all kinds of Singions, Hsarus, Amgelics but no Tals and then build a dueler and try and kill me because I gave you the idea of wasting a weekend running Norm Council!!!
