50 Pit runs for the new guy

Hey everyone. Brand new member here. I just finished the game for the first time on 1.10 with a Hammerdin. Pretty bad equipment since this was only my second attempt at a character and my ATMA stash was fairly meager. Anywho, beat Baal and then decided to follow the leader and do Pit Runs. My MF was about 260 and my paladin was lvl 81 at the beginning. Here goes:

1.Sabre, Amulet (Arcanna's)
2.Amulet (Tal Rasha's)
3.Ceremonial Javelin
4.Amulet (Civerb's)
5. awww
6. awww
7.Round Shield
8.Gothic Plate, Long Sword
9. awww
10.Bone Helm
11.War Scepter, Long Battle Bow, Great Helm
12.Composite Bow
13.Plate Mail
14. awww
15.Bastard Sword
16. awww
17.Colossus Crossbow, Great Helm
18. awww
19.Death Mask
20. awww
21. awww
22.Jewel (Venom, 3/5), Jewel (Blizzard, 4/5) ...that was weird....
23. awww
24.Heavy Crossbow, Heavy Gloves
25.Mithril Coil
26.Tower Shield
27.Legend Spike, Morningstar
28. awww
29.Light Belt
30. awww
31.Large Shield
32.Cutlass
33.Ring (Nature's POS), Jewel (Nova, 5/3)
34.Long Battle Bow
35.Hunter's Guise
36.War Axe, Amulet (Angelic), Lacquered Plate, War Boots
37. awww
38.Chain Mail
39. awww
40. awww
41. Belt (Hwanin's), Composite Bow
42.Kite Shield
43.Jagged Star
44.Chain Mail
45. awww
46.Halberd
47. awww
48.Mask, Heavy Boots
49. awww
50.Long Battle Bow, Circlet, Grim Scythe

There it is, people. Pretty average with a couple exceptions: the hat trick of facets, and Tal's armor. I really hope the colors work, the weird ones are supposed to be unique. Anywho, besides Tal's plate, nothing good enough to take out an insurance policy on. Good to finally be a member.

Ok, I'd have to concur that Tal's Armor is a pretty wonderful find (first time I ever got one)... but WHAT is the POSSIBLE use for the unique Legend Spike, aka Ghostflame. It seems fairly ridiculous to me. If anyone has theories as to its use, please let me know. Oh crap, I just sneezed and there's all sorts of gross action on my monitor.

Daggerdin!

Hey, it does a lot of physical damage and it's quick, with a range of one: maybe good on bosses with some crushing blow :D

I dont know how to trade on SP... are you talking about just doing a hosted game using IP addresses? I guess that works. But as far as trading, how do I know that everything is legit? Also, I'm wrestling with some pretty profound moral questions concerning trading on single player... it seems ... wrong. Ah well. TiBen brought up the point of using Ghostflame for a Poison necro dude. I completely forgot about Poison dagger. Has anyone made a viablo SP poison necro?

Why calculate odds for those drops? I know that Tal's Amulet is great and all, but Arcanna's isn't very good.. are they really rare or something? I need ANSWERS... and by the way, nice to meet all of you. ;)

And if you're gonna calculate odds, what are the odds of finding 2 Facets in the same run? Within 4 minutes of each other?

Yes arcannas is very difficult to find and so is Tal's I guess since I've never found either one. As for trading you can use the ATMA program to help you out there, there is a stickied thread at the top of the page that will explain all you need to know. And you have to rely on trust when trading in SP and that goes for a lot of things that we have to do on this forum.

Hi neely, and welcome to the SPF :wave: check out the ATMA thread on the top off this page and a whole other will open up :)

trading is done via ATMA and e-mail, but as i said earlier, check the ATMA thread out, that will explain the secrets..

great finds there too, nice daager for a daggerzon btw ^^

Does everyone do Pit on Players 8 ?

I was just wondering if everyone who does these lists does it on players 8 because Ive tried running the pit about 20-30 times with my level 86 barb, I mostly did it on players 1 (when I tried p8 I got some severe spankings handed to me, could do it but was slow for a clearance.)

I generally run at about 210 MF and havent found any kind of things that people report on these find threads. Only decent drops ive really ever had are Tal Rasha's amulet and belt and those werent even in the pit.

Would I get much better results on /players 2 ... for example, rather than /players 1 ??

in 1.09.
players 5 was the best option for drop/experience/difficult
players 3 was the best option for drop/difficult.

I can think it's about same with 1.10.

yes players 2 will be much better !

I did my runs at Players 4, so... it seemed to work pretty well... and I'm pretty familiar with ATMA, but I'll check the thread to see how trading works
