Best baal runner goes to....

What character? lol... Okay.. i guess we all know the fishymancer does well, but i'm just wondering if there's any other character that can do the runs as quick or even quicker, then switch to MF gear to kill baal?

Is there?

Maybe it's time for me to build a fishymancer too. 5 guilame's face in a week is a sure sign... lol.

btw, quick check, Baal CAN drop everything in the game... right? lol...

I agree that hammerdin's dont do that good as well. My Bone mage necro does a baal run a whole lot faster... He just cannot sacrifice gear for MF.. lol...

Wind druid? hmm... I find the rage of tornado's utterly disgusting.. worse than BHammer... But i guess thay do have a big advantage with huge life, and huge elemental absorb... hmmm... Quite possible...

I could run Baal no problem with my Blizzard/Hydra sorc. It was the cursed (or should that be cursing?) Oblivion Knights I encountered on the route to Baal who she had difficulty handling--OKs are Cold Immune, and Hydra doesn't kill 'em quick enough to save your merc from Iron Maiden.

I really must redo her as a Blizzard/Meteor sorc and see if that helps matters...

well my winddruid has currently around 2,2 K life, 75% block, 48% PDR, all resits 75% and around 3 K of elemental absorb... add in 4,5 k tornado's and 3-4K hurricane and yeah, i run baal pretty fast imo... switch included i have around 450-500% mf
altough i REALLY wanna try out a hammerdin, never played one of those so thats my #1 thing on my to-do list

fishy's arent the quickest, but even with ob knights IM'ing all your skeles, the amount of bodies that are lyign around ont he floor in the throne of destruction are easily enough to replace the lost soldiers. the worst bit is if you go in and you find a pack of monsters and some OK's. cause you got no bodies to regrow or CE. once you can clear the door, then it is only a matter of time.

I have fun doing runs w/ my Zealot, I can get them done in under 10 minutes pretty easy... You just have to have the tolerance to know that every once in awhile you are going to hit a rough patch where OK's and Gloams are going to take you down in successive runs.

the fishy/summoner can do the run very easy and VERY QUICKLY, in WSK no problemms at all, only if you got hitted then you'r almost dead there, and for Baal, hmm with the right revive you should take him in no time, belive me, one minute and his life bar is behind the letter b :lol:

my fishy? i don't know what the hell a fishy is supposed to mean - but i followed nightfish's guide (maybe that's why it's called that?)

on normal i have no problem - generally i don't get touched by an enemy. only on the rare occasion i'm close enough to get hit by one of those monsters that blows up (fire or ice)... or if i'm not paying attention and a monster teleports near me... i usually find a good safe spot to watch my minions kill... on nightmare i'm only on act II - so i don't know how well they'll take bosses yet on that level.

The one you guys missed is the trapper kicker hybrid. She's a Boss destroyer, you do have to gulp potions like crazy with Baal though even though the fight lasts like 30 sec. with 50-75% CB. The WSK gets hairy with the LI gloams so you kinda hafta reroll or CoS and run like hell. Everything else is cannon fodder to DS and LS.

Never had a problem with my multizon...takes me about 9-10 minutes total, with few deaths, although my merc bits the dust quite a bit....Valkyrie doesn't however.

I liked my Avenger doing it for quite a while. Right now, I have stopped Baal and am doing the Pit with my Amazon hybrid. If she had resistance, she would rock the WSK and Baal. I guess I have to sacrifice more resistance. It is a pity.

Multizon... hmmm... I was leanign really heavily towards a Strafer... Maybe with magic arrow... But i don't have a really good bow, cept for witchwild (which looks really nice when upgraded), Buriza, Goldstrike and Lycanders... So currently my Strafer is on hold.... I was thinking however, a strafer with lightning fury and some synergies would pretty well...

20 strafe
20 valkyre
20 Lightning fury
20 Lightning Fury Synergy

Use strafe with knockback (and high ED bow) for getting through the WSK, then use LF for baal's minions... Baal himself will be a potential problem though... due to GA not doing it's cheesy pierce anymore...

Only way to kill Baal with a Strafezon is max Magic Arrow. The magic damage cuts through his PR, the AR bonus is just huge, and you get enough leech to just stand there and tank all his attacks. I even killed him on /players 8 hell just to prove it could be done. Took about 40 minutes, but it worked like a charm.

I make my runs with a Zealot. I have no problem, but because I wear so much MF gear, every now and then willl explode like a kernel of popcorn against an oblivion Knight and die instantly, so you got to avoid them when possible.

I was thinking maybe Jab, cuz my old hybrid zon seems to jab really really well in 1.10... though jab only has 1 point =D... If i maxed strafe and LF and synergy as well as valk, i wont have enough points for magic arrow... sigh...

1.10 really makes you think...
