I have beaten like every boss in the game and i have never gotten any swords or at least some thing i can use, i always get fire and death necklaces but no ice, does anyone ahve the same proble as me? :-(
What you need to do is farm the boss ( farm- kill multiple times ,mainly in groups, in order to get rare items or gold ). even if you dont get the sword there still are alot of items that you can sell for good gold.
I farmed Ivan Soulsinger for his sword ( 4 hours -_- ) and when i finally got it i sold all the extra stuff and made about 10k off of them.
