    When you do these comparisons you should also consider the time it takes to complete a run. I'm sure a full clearance of the Pit takes longer than killing Pindle or Meph. So comparing them just by a set number of runs isn't entirely fair. Otherwise, nice work and keep it up.

    You're right Mawa, but I figured I'd leave time out because it's so dependent on the class a person chooses and the skill they have at running the areas/mobs, where as the statistics shouldn't change based on those factors.

    Actually it takes me less time to do 100 pit runs than 100 meph runs simply because of how fast I kill and how long it takes to find my way through the durance. Now if I had mh, that would go away really quick... but so would my pride

    imo, pit is better then pindle for the reason that u can kill them unique monsters that can drop all items (but anni and cow king set) and u can kill a lot in a just a bit of time, like killing 8 pindles in 1 run. if u are a sorc meph may be a lil better, u can find good items at a good rate but u dont have the tclvl87 to dip in. i do meph diablo and baal and the lvl 85 areas around them witch are river of flame, chaos, wsl2 and 3, throne room i find a lot, but for gems and items for runewords i run pit in random games that are likely to be full.

    are these runs you are doing in solo or are thay done with others in the game? this is a major fator in place like the pit

    Look forward to the other runs. Would also be interesting to see how Baal stacks up conpared to this, since 1 Baal run ought to top one run of anything else.

    baal dose have best odds to drop the top items, but it takes a bit longer then most other runes. however, if you clear the areas up to him, you can get some good items. in the baal runs i do with a hammerdin, i have found about the same going to him as i have killing him. i run baal a lot in solo and in games with friends. its well worth it if u get a few friends to help, and you get some nice exp on this endeavor.
