Go far enough backward and that TMJ problem goes away though. Item stacking made a huge difference in drop sizes. Kill that GW in corridor and get maybe five items. Kill another in same location and get nothing.

Before that floor items were your main source of decent items and vaults were more than exciting because quality of the items compared to monster drops were so much greater.
