Baal is a worthless jerk I hate Baal. I have run this stupid-looking creature in hell for some time and not once has he given me something worthwhile. Nothing is more frustrating than having this guy drop 3 magic items, a rare flying knife, and Isenhart's (anything). Mephisto takes some coaxing, but he gives me Ravenfrosts and Blackhorn's Faces and Hellslayers and other stuff. Also "Baal runs" are never about Baal, they are always about the champions before him. So not only does he get credit for a lot of cool-looking monsters, he also drops ROTTING DOG TRIPE.
