I am very pleased with this patch. I hope you will like it too!
Item type dropped will now be based on the experience the monster will give.
This will ensure that as you progressively kill stronger monsters, you will get equipment that will require more stats and it will also mean that new players don’t have to scratch their head looking at heater shields that require 200str :).
Paragon, Enraged, ML (Named monsters) artifact drop chance has been altered to use the monsters experience instead of fame. Fame was never a reliable number to begin with. Some really strong named monsters had low fame and some weak monsters had high fame. This lead to very silly artifact drop %.
Gave Abscess fame and karma (it had none)
