    Baal runs 1-100 of 1000

    I recently returned from visiting my grandparents in Iowa last week and while i was there (I had nothing to do b/c there is not a whole lot to do in Iowa unless you like corn and cows) so i started to do a comparison of baal runs vs pindle runs (in between some of my other MFing and new characters). i planned to do 1000 of each (cant guarentee that i'll ever get this done now that i have to go back to work but ill try). now that im back and can get online i wanted to post my results. while catching up on what has happened in the last week i noticed that Nacca has taken the initiative to do 10K pindle runs. so now i have decided to drop the pindle runs (prolly do some anyway since he is right there and it doesnt take very long) and just do baal runs and compare my results to his.

    me being the dummy that i am was recording the results by hand (good ole pencil and paper). after reading nacca's thread i learned a new(for me at least) tool of atma, the partial dump (this would have saved me a good deal of time and will save me a great deal of typing). so i will use this to post my results.

    TECHNICALITIES:

    runs are done by LUCKY my magic find Meterob sorc with 450+ magic find

    She is now level 91 and he gear is:
    HELM: umed SHAKO
    ARMOR: Ptopazed TAL's
    AMMY: TAL's
    GLOVES: MAGE FIST
    BOOTS: WAR TRAVs
    BELT: TAL's
    WEAPON: OCCY
    SHIELD: SANCTUARY GRIM
    SWITCH: Dual ISTED ALI BABA and RHYME GRIM

    i only kill what i have to kill in order to save time (so basically nothing til i get to the throne)
    i include items found off baals minions and anyone else i kill in the the throne(actually labled them on paper if anyone wants to know)
    this first report doesnt list all items found. i sold quite a few junk and repeat items so i didnt have to mule as often (139 items in stash 188 items on paper) and it doesnt include charms, runes, or jewels (except facets).
    players1 until BAAL who i kill on players4
    i cant get FLAVIE to run on my comp so i dont know how many elites i have found so if anyone wants to go through and count them (i'm not going to) feel free to post the number. i would like to know

    OK. so now for the results. i am gonna double post here because i dont think this post will hold all the result along with this somewhat long intro. so mods dont be mad at me please. :innocent:

    Just a small suggestion, maybe list highlights separately or highlight them so it's easier for us to see the awesome stuff at a glance. :)

    Uh oh ... I really would like some of these finds myself ... looks like it is time to shorten my RoF runs (these are quite annoying and slow) and go forward to Pindle, WSK and Baal.

    Good job! And nice finds there! :thumbsup:
    Such dedication to run Baal...
    I never liked running him, tried it some long time ago, but never got the hang of it. More of a Pindy lover here.

    Here's a list of what I saw that could be consider as good finds (might have missed some):
    Spirit Ward
    Gerke's Sanctuary
    Blood Raven's Charge
    Naj's Light Plate
    Sazabi's Cobalt Redeemer
    Messerschmidt's Reaver
    Head Hunter's Glory
    Doombringer
    and
    Tancred's Hobnails (TC3, so good find from Baal)

    Good luck with the remaining 900 runs, and keep those stats coming!
    More Gold and Green to you, and to everyone with such dedication for Baal! :)

    Good stuff you got there but as a side note: you can actualy kil baal at /p1 and switch to /p8 before he dies and still get a /p8 drop from what I've heard.(right?)

    I hate Hellrack now. I've found six already from Meph/Pindle... without even really trying. So three in 100 Baal runs is probably to be expected, I'd guess :)

    Nice finds, and good on the runs... Baal running is a bit tiresome for me just because of how long it takes to reach him, and then to kill him. With the risk of dying and losing experience, of course.

    Good luck with the future runs!

    actually 4. i believe i sold one. lol. also i think 6 Gen Tan's flail.

    i dont think so. i believe nightfish is right. you have to do it from another area. i noticied that baals life falls alot faster when i type the playersX commander in his chamber as compared to when i do it after i kill Lister (before i enter the portal) which makes me think that you cant just work him down then go players8 and get the drop for 8 instead of 1. you might very well be able to TP out go players8 then TP back and that might work. i'll try it and let you know. but as far as i can tell you have to be in a different area for the change to take effect.

    will do. too tired last night to take the time.

    @MAX: if you see anything in there you need PM me and let me know and i'll try to hook you up. if i remember correctly you sent me a nice stash of sorc items awhile back after my comp crashed and i had to start over. which basically got LUCKY going.

    EDIT: I just tried the TP thing i mentioned i i dont think it works either. pretty sure you have to be in diferent area.

    @MAX: well if you see something that fills a hole in you grail let me know and ill see what i can do.

    Really... I don't remember...
    But don't worry about it, just hearing that it got you going again is enough. :thumbsup:

    the monster hp and exp value are calculated at time of monster spawning, the drops are calculated at time of moster death. the3united is correct in stating that you can spawn baal at a lower player setting for lower hp then switch to a high player setting for the kill (and thus item drops), but phatbrava is also correct in stating that this practice is considered cheesy by many.

    I've always wondered what my drops would have been like over the long, long term if I practiced spawning at p1 and dropping at p8 ... which I don't, but it would be interesting.

    I'm sure I would have filled some Grail holes. Probably substantially.

    You are correct in that this will work. However, as NSX says many (I'd hope most) consider this cheesey and I'd just like to add a lot would consider it down right cheating. I say this because you are getting drops you did not earn.

    Also if you are running Baal and want to kill him at a different setting to the rest of your run you have to change the setting before you enter his chamber since he spawns when you enter. If you are upping the players command after you enter the chamber you are inadvertantly practicing what the three suggested.

    Just a small note, as it'll impact your run times ever so slightly. Killing baal on p3 produces the same odds as P4.

    Which also gives you 6 items damn near every time (which is the max anyways) So in effect it IS a P8 drop.

    Max drops on p1 vs Max drops on p8 still = max drops.

    (Although I do think changing the player setting intentionally before a kill is down right cheesy as hell, spawning them on what ever you like and following through = oknp)
