Perfect Drop Mod by Sheer_Cold from Ladderhall Realm & The Phrozen Keep

Version Info:


-Removed item: Moonstone Grade 10 (4 character id code caused some problems)
-Added some more cube recipes for player's convenience. Improves gameplay
-Added new graphics for the Grade items. (i.e. Moonstone Grade 2 now had a "2"
inside the graphic).
-Added a few items:
-Fragment Grade 2 and Fragment Grade 3. See bottom of Cube Recipies.htm for
information on creating or converting them.
-Converting Unique items to Fragments using Enchanted Obsidians have had minor
improvement tweaks.
-Fixed some bugs with cube recipies... Overflow, haha. Glad I caught that.
-Modified and fixed some drop rates.
-Fragments Stage 2 can drop (rarely).
-Some boss drops fixed
-Runes are more rare
-Higher grade Gems from chests are more rare in all difficulties.
-Uber Cow King in Normal can now drop up to Moonstone Stage 6
-Fixed transmuting Azurewraths into Fragments.
-Fixed monster spawns
-All Amazon Missile Skills require no Arrows or Bolts (MUST HAVE AT LEAST 1 ARROW
-Reduced cost for Enchanted Obsidians

-Updated Cube Recipies
-See PDM Cube Recipes.htm for all cube recipies.
-Transmuting a Health Potion now creates a Tree Bark Scroll as well as a Horadric
Staff and Khalim's Flail.
-Updated Fragment and Moonstone graphics (They had some black showing. Minor but
got annoying.)
-Monster Resistances substantially decreased.
-Plague Charm now works in the cube.
-Bone Magic Charm is re-introduced. You can find it from drops along with Plague
-Skills no longer have a level restriction. Skill Tree restrictions still apply.
-Fixed drop graphic for Horseshoes and Dragon Scales.
-Modified Horseshoe and Dragon Scale drop rates.
-Reduced the number of unique monsters... Areas were majorly overflooded, haha.
-New UI graphics (Trademark Screen, Gameselect Screen, Character Select Screen).
-Cows in Normal are still Uber. Nightmare and Hell Cows are far easier.
-Breakable Windows in Act 4 are no longer called "An Evil Force".
-Superior Items now spawn with perfect attributes
-Rune drops were modified... High Runes dropped like popcorn so they were slightly
reduced. There are easier ways to obtain high runes anyways, so it's not really a
bad thing. I find myself picking up every high rune that drops even though I don't
need them.
-Rainbow Facets may now be salvaged into Fragments.
-Moonstones can be stacked... Transmute 3 Moonstones of same grade to create one of
a higher grade. Transmute one higher grade Moonstone to create 3 lower grades.
-I have a feeling this could be very helpful but very annoying at the same time.
Any feedback is always welcome.

::Older versions::


-Moonstone and Fragment graphics have been changed, fitting more appropriately now.
-New graphic for the Horadric Cube
-Redone 'Bone Magic Small Charm'. It's now 'Stone Magic' and it can only be
obtained by creating a new character and transmuting the Plague Charm. You can
transfer them to other characters using the shared stash.
-Redone drop rates. Magics, Sets, Rares and Uniques drop more balanced than before.
Especially in Hell difficulty.
-Chests drop Gold, Gems, Runes and two new rare goodies (sometimes drops junk too).
They're also available from monster drops as well.
-New item: Plague Charm. Only available to new characters but can be transferred
between characters. The only use for this item is transmuting it into the cube to
create the new Teleport Charm

-Standard of Heroes now renamed to 'Moonstone'. All existing Standard of Heroes in
inventories should automatically convert

-Old Standards renamed back to what they were.

New recipes for creating Moonstones. They now need 'Fragments' to create. 9
Fragments transmuted will create a Moonstone.

-To create Fragments, the player must break items down using the Cube and the
Unique Item + Enchanted Obsidian -> # of Fragments based on the item transmuted (1
being lowest, 3 being highest).

-Enchanted Obsidians can be purchased at all Magic NPC Sellers (Akara, Drognan,
Ormus, Jamala, and Malah) or can be dropped from enemies and chests.

-New recipes added for socketing:

Any socketable item + Moonstone + Ist Rune -> Max sockets in transmuted item.

-Changed recipe:
Town Portal Book + Identify Book + Moonstone -> Bone Magic Small Charm (previously
called "Requiem" or TP Charm)

-All Runes can now be purchased (Gheed, Elzix, Alkor, Halbu, and Anya)
Weapons have increased max sockets (maximum according to the inventory size (cap of
-The Constricting Ring is now spawnable

-Battle Orders, Battle Command, Shout and Thunderstorm can be used in towns.

Drop Rates:
-Changed up, fixed, balanced out and revised drop rates for the new items as well
as Moonstones

-Perfect Gems drop more often in Hell difficulties (should be always)

-50,000 sell cap in Act 1 Normal and increases up to 100,000 sell cap in Hell Act

-More Unique monsters spawn in all difficulties.
-Uber Cows have migrated to Normal difficulties and the original cows have regained
control of their farms on Nightmare and Hell settings for those who would still
like to hunt them. Cows in Nightmare and Hell both have chances of dropping
Fragments. The Uber Cows in Normal still have great chances of dropping Moonstones.

1.04 Gamma
-Blood Raven in Normal now drops the Horadric Cube (Just for those who seem to
have lost theirs)

-New Unique Small Charm - Requiem
To obtain, you must transmute a Town Portal Book and Identify Book together in the
Horadric Cube.
-Books can be bought with a greater quantity
-Charms can now be found as rare
-More new cube recipes (can be found in Cube Recipes.txt)

1.04 Delta 4
Drop Rates:
Ubers can now drop the new Standard of Heroes (i.e. Diablo Clone, Uber Diablo,
Mephisto, Andariel, Duriel, etc.)
Cow King now drops Standard of Heroes and so do regular Cows. Chances of the drops
from Cows in hell are far greater than Nightmare and Normal.
The Cow King in Hell almost always drops Standard of Heroes. They can then be
transferred to other characters using the Shared Stash with PlugY :)
Increased Drop Rates for Standard of Heroes in Hell and Nightmare.
Blood Raven now drops SoHs in Nightmare and Hell.
Increased quality for dropped Rare Items.
Fixed two cube recipes
Arrows and Bolts have increased stack sizes.
Town Portal Books, Identify Books and Keys have a 500 max stack size.


Cows are far stronger, faster and harder to kill. But reaped rewards are much

Cube Recipes:
Easy Portals:
-1 Antidote Potion -> Cow Portal (all requirements must be met)
-2 Antidote Potions -> Random Pandemonium Portal (Act 5 only)
-3 Antidote Potions -> Uber Tristram Portal (Act 5 only)

1.04 Delta 2
Mistypes / Typos:
Ormus' Robes renamed to Ormus's Robes. Proper English states that if a name ends
with an "s", an apostraphe must be applied after the first "s" and another "s" must
be placed after.
In the word "Ormus'", there's only one Ormus, implying that this would only be
correct if it were a last name, which in this case, it is not.

Runeword changes:
All ladder runewords are available

Cube Recipes:
Fixed all recipes and reworked the restrictions.

Unique Items:
Allowed the Hellfire Torch to spawn more than once per game because of the random
stats. Ormus's Robes remains one per game to increase the volume of rares which
preceed unique drops.

1.04 Delta 1

Fixed some crash errors
Optional expanded stash, inventory and horadric cube. Files are included in a .zip
folder with the mod.
Easy installer: Run the setup and type either I or U to install or uninstall.
Diablo II must be closed in order for this to work.
There should be no problems with this either and it meant for the
user's convenience.

5x Normal experience rate (Can be multiplied using /players x or with multiple
people in TCP/IP or Multiplayer - 400x maximum)
(Reduced from 25x due to some experience gain problems.
Many were involved with "experience wrapping". The experience got too high
and became
a negative value, causing the player to delevel or lose a massive amount of
Expanded Stash, Inventory & Cube
