Are there rare items or weapons?  Reply with quote  

God I hope snowblind put in some rare weapons/armor in this game. Thats what made diablo2 so great replay wise as it was always exciting to find a rare weapon or item after a lot of searching. Does anyone know if there are any in this game?

as far as i know there are hardly any rare items. i think people are getting the wrong impressions of this game thinking there is gonna be rare drops and certain monsters that will drop "unique" items. and if there are any theres probably like 30. thats what i heard somewhere. but as far as it becoming a diablo 2/pso item hunt. i doubt it. anyone know for sure? i would like there to be many rare unique drops but i have a feel ing there are very few.

I think people are too hopefull that this is Diablo 2 for the console.

This looks like it will be a great game, but it won't be Diablo 2.

As soon as people see hack and slash RPG (action/adventure RPG) they tend to thing diablo....i think Everquest when i see this game....i play EQ for 4 years...and i dont know if thinking about that game in comparison is good or not, but i know this game will blow my socks off when i get it....2 more days hopefully if all goes well.

What? No rare drops?

My friend said theres 30 unique / rare items. 6 for each class, 5 armor things, and 1 weapon.

He's wrong? Mad

And that's a GOOD thing, IMO. If I want to play Diablo 2, I'll, well, play freakin' Diablo 2!!! I'm getting this because it's a NEW game.

yep that whole 30 rares thing sounds about right to me. 6 pieces per character. but the thing is are they actually RARE? so will it be hard to get them or will everybody get them after they reach a certain point in the game. cause than they arent rare.

Wouldn't rare items denote that some kind of overarcing item economy existed? And since there is no such economy in this game...

The 30 rare items i think are kinda like the "signature-legendary" items. Sort of like what was in FFX, where each character had their ultimate weapon. It wasnt too rare though, because each game had one, and each player got one.

But its rare because it will probably be extremely hard to get (and on the highest difficulty) AND its their signature item, meaning, a barbarian cant wear the Wizard's Robe

I am pretty sure there are 30 UNIGUE/Legendary items in the game. 6 pieces for each character. I remember reading about that on some website, it might have been here actually, lol. And besides that there are 3000 DIFFERENT items in the game, i personally think that is incredible. What more can u ask for?!?! Thank you snowbind:)

In Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 2 there really isn't any unique/rare/legendary weapons.

In CoN, each type will have a differant colour text. Like yellow for unique items.

If there's hardly any rare items, then how would you explain this list I found on Gamefaqs.com that has the unique items found so far.
