    2x500 Pindle runs

    I did a test with Pindleskin drops. Test was done with my Mf Blizzsorc (565 MF), players 1. I played with a mapseed borrowed by Masas and with my original seed. All drops from Masas'seed were given away. (I think LeoricTheDark is the owner of the elite and exceptionals and some rares and gambled amulets now)
    It seems like the game doesn't want to drop me any TC87, so I keeped records of any TC87 item dropped by Pindle.

    Felloak
    Ironstone
    Lance of Yaggai
    Wormskull

    2) Exceptional S/U: 2/9
    Aldur's Rhythm

    4) Higher Elite S/U: 0/0

    5) TC87 S/U: 0/0 (from 16 drops)


    Conclusion: Pindle doesn't like me no matter what seed I use. Meph would give me more items in the smae time. (Only two items that meph can't drop, both of them I have already several times)
    On the other hand Anya seems to like me more, because I gambled a Seraph's Hymn (grailie) from her

    I have had the exact same experience as you. My meteorb (370MF) has tried them both, and Pindle has been exceptionally stingy. He mainly just drops stuff that Hell Andy has already given me.

    I've heard about people running Pindle for TC87, but I think I'll stick with Meph. He's always been very nice and generous...well, not so much nice, but definitely generous.

    Ya but its either pindle, pits, or baal for them high tc items meph cant drop. Baal gives nothing ever, and pindle hates everyone. Unfortunately I've never gotten anything from the pits, but at least its fun :)

    However I've had pretty good luck with pindle, you just have to kill him over and over and over and....until your eyes fall out, then moan about how he never gives you stuff :/. Yep thats how it works...

    Pindle is my man. If I ever mf again, it will be at him. I've run him around 500 times total and gotten a WF and DC. Granted I also only got like 1 other keepable item in that time, but I couldnt complain.

    Wow, you got all those normal and uniques and set uniques from Pindle?

    While utterly useless (for me anyways) your experience with those drops are much better than mine.

    Maybe it's because I just concentrate solely on the good drops.

    I've run Pindle so much that my findings are probably pretty much in line statisically with his drop frequency ... but I haven't kept track.

    Sometime back there was a tc87 drop thread where most people outlined their "best" drops. I outlined mine and most - around 80% or more - of my top drops came from Pindle. While the rest came in the Pits and/or Hell Meph.

    I don't Baal much but when I do the way he drops crap for me essentially makes me avoid him unless I need high level XP. So, i'm unable to comment aboiut Baal.

    The results from my seed are far worse than I expected. Maybe it's just random luck after all. Of course not counting racks in.
