    50 hell Baal runs

    I did my runs with my lvl 92 Fishymancer, he is my best character for Baal running imo.

    His gear:

    Harley crest (Ptopaz)
    Mara's Kaleidoscope/Maiden's amulet of teleportation
    Blade of Ali Baba (IstIst)
    Skullder's Ire (Ptopaz)
    Homunculus (Pdiamond)
    Chance Guards (40%)
    Goldwrap
    2x Nagelring (29% and 27%)
    War Traveler (40%)

    Gheed's Fortune (34%)
    Lots of mf sc's totaling 124% MF (some of them have lightning resist bonus and I have few vita charms too)

    I have Wizardspike and Ancients Pledge tower shield on swithc, I use them to boost my resists while teleporting

    Merc gear:

    Ethereal Crown of Thieves
    Tal Rasha's Guardianship
    eth upgraded Hone Sundan (AmnAmnShael)

    This setup gives me 689% MF (777% if merc kills), nice killing speed and it is quite safe too

    Minions I killed on p1 and Baal on p3

    Results:

    1. Feral Claws, Tulwar
    2. Kite Shield
    3. Bone Visage
    4. ----------
    5. Nagelring, Ornate Plate, Broad Axe
    6. Military Pick, Jagged Star, Long Battle Bow
    7. Balrog Blade
    8. War Staff, Scimitar
    9. Short Siege Bow, Sharkskin Gloves
    10. Nagelring
    11. Bastard Sword, Broad Sword
    12. Matriarchal Spear, Heavy Belt
    13. War Boots
    14. Bone Shield, Gothic Shield, Chaos Armor
    15. Long Sword
    16. ----------
    17. Spiked Shield, Claymore, Mithril Coil
    18. Poleaxe, Chain Boots
    19. ----------
    20. Battle Hammer, Lacquered Plate
    21. Splint Mail
    22. Kraken Shell
    23. Gladius
    24. Crown, Cuirass
    25. Mask
    26. ----------
    27. War Sword, War Sword
    28. Ornate Plate, Skull Cap, Sabre, Grim Wand
    29. Chain Gloves
    30. Chu-Ko-Nu, Scimitar, Breast Plate
    31. Executioner Sword
    32. War Staff
    33. ----------
    34. Chain Boots
    35. Cathan's Seal
    36. Gladius, Destroyer Helm, Large Axe
    37. ----------
    38. ----------
    39. Short War Bow
    40. Plated Belt
    41. Claymore
    42. ----------
    43. Poleaxe, Hunter's Guise
    44. Chain Mail, Bone Helm
    45. Templar Coat, Breast Plate
    46. Breast Plate
    47. Vambraces
    48. Claymore, Heavy Gloves, Mask
    49. Gothic Bow
    50. Ogre Axe, Round Shield, War Belt, Bone Helm

    Notable findings from Baal minions:

    Dusk Shroud, Vampirebone Gloves, Lance, Cryptic Sword

    One run takes about 7-8 mins. My teleport ammy helps me to do runs so fast, but another trick is my mercs Hone Sundan. The huge CB on it kills Baal in no time so I can use p3 for him without losing my speed. My Clay Golem has 60% slow target which is really handy against Baal. He doesn't use his spells, he just sits and waits until my army kills him. Then I can also use Amp instead of Decrepify

    But I don' know if I will run baal much anymore. He isn't good guy if you want TC87 items, those can be found much easier in Pit or other lvl 85 areas.

    Example:

    Crown of Ages (Pit, 500% MF, unique monster, /players 1 (p8 won't increase chances in this case))

    1 : 44617 Bone Warrior - [H] Pit Level 1

    Crown of Ages (Baal, 500% MF, /players 3)

    1 : 83438 Baal - [H]

    It works same way for all other TC87 items.

    Of course Baal drops multiple items (on p3 he has ~85% to drop 6 items, im not sure though) but every unique monster drops 2 items and Pit is full of them. Don't run Baal if you want TC87

    I hope this helps all other MFers, especially grailers

    It is nice to see some Baal run results. It is ashame that you did't find some good items. The only TC87 items I ever found came from Pindle.

    Great run Lprman, can I use your results for my 750 Baal vs. Pits results?

    By the way, The Kraken Shell is also a great find.

    great work :thumbsup:
    there's some nice finding in those, but as you sayed, know Baal is the lord of crappy items:( his minoion will drop much better items than him but he drops 6 items ( I think it was 100% to drope 6 items on players 3).
    I have also the same fishy lvl 92:D and his mf is 650 the difference that I use wealth rune word ( gamble 2-3 times a day 3 Million gold) and rhym shield and magic ammy with +35% mf, and my merc has 246% mf his gear: ptopazed tal rash armor, Ptopazed Harlequin Crest, Cryptic Axe socketed with amn, so my mf when he kills is ~900%, I rune pits, andy, mephisto in no time realy, they drop much better and much safer in cmparison to WSK.

    Of course you can use my results :)

    I think I will try Baal running to get some TC81 and TC84 for my grail but then I will go back to Pit with my Hammerdin to get those TC87. I just have to find a good seed and then do heck a lot of runs

    edit: Hmm, in fact I could do another 50 run this weekend, that means about 3 hours of Baal runs on each day, which isn't impossible

    Slow? :scratch:

    I think skellymancer is one of the fastest killers in this game with his CE. Only thing you need is good weapon on your merc to supply enough corpses

    I agree. Hell was really the first time I started using CE with my fishy. He began killing things faster, safer, and better than his minions. I'm still having trouble doing Baal runs with him, most likely because I still don't have all the gear I really need. I've got good MF, but it's killing my resists and those gloams kill me every time in the WSK.

    And yeah, some nice finds! I need to get back to my own grail running eventually. I have such a LONG way to go!

    Nice finds LPR! :thumbsup: So far the best I've done is about 4 runs, and only netted me a Balrog Skin and a Ballista...maybe I'll have better luck soon.

    wow LPR, you're a Baal-running machine! nice work, and nice finds.

    after running Baal for a long time for the MFO, i agree with you assertion that Baal is a bad place to find TC87 items... not that there is any good place. :scratch:
