Level 40-49 world-drop blues

This is a continuation of my previous posts about world-drop blue items (level 10–19, level 20–39). In today’s post we’ll deal with the world-drop blues in the level 40–49 range. I collected the data in the same way as in the previous post: I was farming bosses in epic playfields until I saw each of the following items drop at least five times.

The main problem in discovering world-drop BoE blue items from level 40 onwards is that the loot tables now also include 12 full armor sets, one for each class (see my old post about the level 40–69 armor sets). That’s 12 × 8 = 96 items; half of them exist on every odd level, the other half on every even level; thus, on our level range (40–49) there are 480 items from these sets. I’m really only interested in documenting those items that are not part of these sets. As the following table shows, there are 63 such items in our level range. Thus, out of 480 + 63 = 543 items, only 63 are of interest to us. In other words, when you kill a boss, there’s only an approx. 10% chance that you’ll get a non-set item; or in yet other words, you can expect that you’ll have to kill ten times as many bosses as you had to do at lower levels where there were no set items. (Due to this fact and due to the boredom from all this farming, it took me several months to reach my goal, i.e. to see each non-set item drop at least 5 times)

This same problem of course continues at higher levels, all the way up to (and including) level 80, where it is compounded by the fact that mobs have more HP and take longer to kill, plus from about level 55 or so the epic bosses start to hurt noticeably even on a level 80 character. So this post is probably the last one in this series; I doubt I’ll ever get around to exploring the level 50–59 range in the same way, let alone the higher levels.

*An interesting new phenomenon at this level range are a few items (Howler Hide Cloak, Mark of Hate, Soulfeast) that exist at multiple levels — at each even level from 40 onwards. The table above shows them up to 48 but actually they continue all the way to level 80. The different-level versions have the same appearance and the same stats, only in different amounts. These items are bind-on-pickup, not bind-on-equip, but they seem to be part of the same system as the bind-on-equip items (and the 12 armor sets), so they are included in this post as well.

A few examples of interesting and recycled models:

  • Frostlight (lvl 40) and Blacksever (lvl 48) use the same model as Gorthogs Axe (lvl 24).
  • Soulfeast uses the same model as the Rod of Righteous Might (BRC quest reward).
  • Soulbleeder (lvl 47) uses a very popular model (staff with a snake head): it is also used by Ancient Serpent Staff (from the Treasury of the Ancients), Souleater (lvl 55 BoE world drop), Forbidden Firestaff (Sewer King, Main System), Incandescent Cane (Aturballon, the Catacombs), Deathwalker Staff (level 70 crafted), Kefmeh (level 78 quest reward from Onyx), Amun-Nepthek’s Staff (from Amun-Nepthek in Tarantia Commons) and Mindcurse Staff (Atzel’s Fortress).
  • Soul Anvil (lvl 42) uses the same model as the Arcane Shield (from the Treasury of the Ancients) and Bloodbane (from the Amphitheatre unchained).
  • Howler Hide Cloak uses the same model as Frostfur (quest reward from Behind the Ice in Atzel’s Approach), Nera’s Cloak (green quest reward from the Eiglophian Mountains) and Northern Frostcape (Atzel’s Fortress).
  • Bladeblur Mantle (lvl 40) and Sightshift Mantle (lvl 48) use a very widespread red cloak model; it also appears as Chancellor Cloak and Spectral Cape (both from Toirdealbach’s Tomb), Lifeswath Mantle (lvl 72 BoE world drop), Redblood Cloak (Shaddrizzar, the Cistern), Spellbane Mantle (lvl 40 BoP), and no doubt several others.
  • Earthscar (lvl 42) has a very peculiar-looking model; I don’t remember seeing any other item that looks the same.
