50 Pit Runs (yeah in color like everyone else's)

Since everyone else is posting their Pit run stats I decided to keep track of mine too.

After the first 25 runs I thought about posting my results as a warning about getting high expectations of good drops from reading about the successes others have had in the Pit (see results – no set or unique drops in 15 of my first 25 runs). But by the time I finished all 50 runs it turned into a lesson in the value of persistence instead.

Some really nice itmes you got from the Pit! :clap:

Yeah, just keep running and something will drop.

Good job at guting through all 50 runs. I would be happy that you found some TC 87's. I watched him do lot of the first 25 runs, and then gave up and left because as you can see they were so boring (I am his son). Now i only wish that my luck would change in pit runs, then agian i am only at run 26 or so on my pit standings so now I have really HIGH exceptations for the ending. : )

Thanks for the offer, but I think I have found much more items than many other players, so taking that valuable freebies feels quite greedy. If you don't need it, trade it for new items or give it to someone who really needs it :)

Was that collosus blade a Bul Cathos blade? I thought they were just teasers and really didn't drop. ;)
It sure was, in fact my 2nd one (which is why you'll find it proudly displayed in my items available for trade in the trade thread).

I know this probalay isnt the forum to ask this.. But whats a good mf for pit runs .. I have a fishymancer


Diabloii.Net Member
If you mean mf% then as much as you can wear and still kill, With a skelimancer you could trade pretty much all your equipment for mf especially if you use corpse explosion. However if you don't use players 1 the going will be slow.
