Where is the best place to find SOJ's?

Archived from groups: alt.games.diablo2 (More info?)

Just curious, as it seems some people have an abundance of the rings. Would
like to get some for some of my characters and would like to try my hand at
facing the Uber Diablo.

Thanks

    It's been generally accepted that nightmare andy is the best place to farm
    for SoJ's. After quest drop she has the highest chance of dropping it. So if
    you are going to run it repeatedly then nm Andy is the one. Here's the
    report from indiablo.de for the top 15 calculations. I went with 1player/0%
    mf

    Monster Chance
    Relation
    Andariel (Quest) (Nightmare) 0.0293861% 1:3403
    Andariel (Quest) (Hell) 0.0178803% 1:5593
    Duriel (Quest) (Nightmare) 0.0169963% 1:5884
    Diablo (Quest) (Normal) 0.0169297% 1:5907
    Duriel (Quest) (Hell) 0.0162421% 1:6157
    Andariel (Nightmare) 0.0129202% 1:7740
    Diablo (Normal) 0.0112314% 1:8904
    Diablo (Quest) (Nightmare) 0.0103309% 1:9680
    Baal (Quest) (Normal) 0.0102684% 1:9739
    Mephisto (Quest) (Nightmare) 0.0102374% 1:9768
    Baal (Quest) (Hell) 0.0100206% 1:9979
    Baal (Quest) (Nightmare) 0.0099585% 1:10042
    Diablo (Quest) (Hell) 0.0098606% 1:10141
    Mephisto (Quest) (Hell) 0.0096419% 1:10371
    Duriel (Nightmare) 0.0079863% 1:12522

    As you can see if you discount all the quest drops (and we can only get that
    once anyway lol). The best option is Andariel in nightmare. GL!

    I don't think there is a specific place 'best' for finding SOJ's. Hell
    Baal blessed my necro with one a while back.

    best place for a unique ring to drop (potenial soj)
    is from hell andarial, highest %chance there

    I believe NM Andy and Meph have the best chances of dropping an SOJ

    Capability of monsters to drop SoJ:
    ____________ Norm _ NM ___ Hell
    Mephisto ____ No ____ Yes ___ Yes
    Diablo ______ Yes ___ Yes ____ Yes
    Pindleskin ___ Yes ____ Yes ___ Yes
    Lister _______ Yes ___ Yes ____ Yes
    Baal ________ Yes ___ Yes ____ Yes
    HellBovine ___ No ____ Yes ___ Yes

    Drop rate of "Hell Bovine" to drop a ring: 0.30926385%
    (Data taken from www.d2data.net)

    With this information taken into consideration, I would think the best
    places to find SoJ's would be in NM-Cow games with maximum amount of players
    and a high MF on killer.

    With a drop rate of 0.30926385% for a ring... just 324 cows should be your
    average ring-find amount (which is more than doable in every cow game).

    Ofcourse wether or not the ring is unique/rare/set/magic all depends on your
    MF amount from there ;¬)

    Although its true that Hell-Andy has the best chance to drop a ring... and
    can drop SoJ...
    Your forgetting that there is only 1 Anderial per game.. and around 500
    NM-Cows.

    Multiplying the NM-Cows odds to drop a ring by even just 342 NM-Cows gives
    an average of ring-find of just over 100%... if you dont get a ring in a cow
    game then your probably VERY unlucky and should be almost guarenteed one
    next time ;¬)

    I'd like to add that a max-players NM-Cow game would be best though... as
    more cows will drop items so more chances that a ring will drop ;¬)

    If you want to find a SOJ, then try MFing in D2 (not LOD). I farmed NM
    Meph in classic D2 and found 2 soj's that way.
