    50 Pit 'n' Pindle Runs

    In my never ending pursuit of data - I did 50 Pit/Pindle Runs with my level (now 92) fishymancer at /players 8. If you need Deaths Hand gloves run Pindle! This lot of 50 Pit runs netted me 14 items for my self found grail and the Pindles 2 so it wasn't all bad!

    Next I will post my 150 Meph runs I have almost finished with my sorcy.

    the one thing not really taken into account here is ammount of time required to do a pit run vs a pindle run...

    still you really had horrible luck with pindle

    There are some sweet finds in there, especially the HoZ, Skulders and Cerebus' Bite.
    By the way, 7 Sets/Uniques off just 50 Pindle runs is not that bad luck, in fact that's quite good considering he has less than 500MF. I've run Pindle countless times with my 'Zon who has 550MF and I have times when nothing has dropped for 100 or so runs. It's all about patience with him, so keep running him, those may seem like bad results compared to The Pit, but on a Time vs Result scale Pindle is better IMO.

    Nice finds! :flip:

    Especially Glorious Axe, Gilded Shield, Earth Spirit, Seraph Hymn and Troll Belt

    Maybe one of the best sets of 50 runs I have seen

    :clap:

    congrats on the nice finds!

    everyone should keep in mind that you only see ~2 items drop per pindle run (it will be slightly higher because of the minions) and his runs only take ~30-45 seconds. pit runs, on the other hand, are about 6-8 minutes - and often much longer, depending on your char - but you will come across 6-9 champion/unique packs. given this, you have to expect that pindle will drop nowhere near the number of items as the pit on a 'per run' basis, but if you count it in units of time, i imagine the two will be more equivalent.

    I did those calculations for my chars :teeth:

    That proved Pindle is better than Pit, but remember I did the calcs for my chars. And from what I know, my Pindle runner isn't fastest possible, not even near but my Pit runner is. So if I now make a char specialized in Pindle runs, then the old buddy would be even better :drool:

    does the red portal close now once quest is completed? i can't remember mine still being there but i don't usually run down to talk to anya.

    my mf character hasen't beat a single a5 quest so i guess i could do that and leave it open. also i thought i heard that blizzard had supposedly made pindleruns less viable, is the portal closing the only change they made?

    I believe the portal closes, if you kill Kilithak and get the waypoint, Devon.

    I myself go with Pindleskin, since my lit. sorceress is rather underpowered for any other run (except for Mephisto). Although, I would be lying if I said Pindleskin hasn't been kind to the old Tekk. ;)

    The only thing Blizz did to nerf Pindle was to set his mlvl to 86 instead of 87. Now he just can't drop 3 items.

    He is still very good :)

    "I believe the portal closes, if you kill Kilithak and get the waypoint, Devon" - Tekka

    If you kill Nilithak and talked to Anya but left the WP in the Halls of Pain (or whatever scary name Nilithak tried to conjure up) unactivated, will the red portal remain open? It'd be nice if it did since it'll leave Pindle nicely accessible for farming and make shopping with Anya much quicker too (i plan on bugging her a lot in Hell for claws for my 'sin).

    As long as you don't do both (kill Nihlathak and get the waypoint) the portal will stay open. I did accidently get the portal with my wolf when doing Hall runs, but the portal did stay open.

    Yeah on Bnet I used to run Pindle with my FO sorc - its just not possible with a summoning necro - well it is but the time taken to go get my minions makes it now worth it. I have a sorc in this patch but she doesnt have 7 skillcharms and isn't wearing soj's and is nowhere near as efficient at pindle killin yet ;) Pindle DID drop me a WF on Bnet so I am still quite fond of him =)

    20 sec pindle runs w/my hammerdin. But I don't have nearly enough time or patience to run him over and over and over... and over and over and over... and over and over and (big breath)... well you get the idea.
