Here's a fun game to play if you're ever bored!
Get a group of people together and head to the Deadmines (or Wailing Caverns, I suppose, but I prefer Deadmines personally). On the way, drop off all of your clothes in the bank. All of them. Don't hold onto your rings, or your weapons, or anything. Put them all in the bank, or your bags if you must. Then go to the instance.
Ready? Here's the game.
You go through the instance normally, just naked. As items drop, if you can equip an item, you do so. Blue, green, white or gray, it all goes on. Everyone rolls Need on BoE greens and BoP blues and phat epix, and the person who gets them, gets them. This means that clothies roll on leather and everything else.
Why is this?
The goal is to wear more clothes than anyone else by the end of the run. If you are, say, a priest who gets the leather pants off the goblin, congratulations! You have prevented a leather wearer from gaining a point. You get one point for every article of clothing (including jewelry and trinkets and weapons) that you are wearing at the end of the run.
Now, clothies and leather wearers may seem disadvantaged, but they do get a bonus.
Clothies: 2 point bonus
Leathers: 1 point bonus
Plate/Mail Wearers: 0 point bonus
This way, if a cloth wearer only gets leather drops or mail drops, they still have a possibility of winning.
So, keep everyone else from getting dressed while putting your own clothes on. It's like reverse strip poker, only you start out naked and you get to party with Mr. Smite.
It's great fun!
What do you win? Well, that's up to you. You could win a gold pot, or some rare drop, or perhaps a private session with that hot little dwarf with the cute boxers.
