    First time using forum, so please bear with me. My sorc is cl/fo with 300mf. Should I carry on, or am I in the wrong place. Found Metalgrid, Atmas Scarab, Shako and 3 parts of Gris set so far, so I'm not complaining.

    Welcome! Hell AT is a lvl 85 area, so every item in the game* can drop from rare monsters there. Including the Tal's Armour you're looking for. Good luck! =)

    *not including cow set

    Hi @Robin Alexander and welcome to these forums :).

    Seems like SunsetVista already got you covered on your questions. Only thing left for me to do, next to the welcoming, is to say congrats for the items that you already got in AT. Very nice !!

    Thanks. At least I know I'm doing something right. I've often looked at this forum for ideas, but never posted. This magic finding is quite addictive.

    Don't forget to get GoMule if you haven't already. Very easy muling, and with a built-in Flavie report, which makes magic finding even more addictive ...

    For sets, the rule of thumb is that if the base item can drop, the set version can also drop. This does not hold true for normal difficulty, however, and possibly NM Griswold/Smith due to their bug.

    AT is one of my favorite places. You come around a corner and have a pack of corpses running at you full speed with one named Puke Lust the Undying that is aura enchanted with lighting bolts going everywhere that insta gibs your Merc. I like the Pit as well, but man those Archers are tough and it's so hard to go back and get your corpse. Usually I wait on it until my character is decently geared before I go in there.

    Thanks for the response to my queries so quickly. I'm using GoMule and the RWM in 1.14d. So now I know how this thing works, I'll probably be back with more questions.

    Still no Tals armour, but today a Jalals, Wolf Howl and Runemaster all dropped in the same run! Along with the Windforce, Crown of Ages, Dracs Grasp and Ribcracker, plus others, I'm kitting out everything else bar my sorc. What a game this is!

    Dracule's Grasp? Nice, that is a great find early. Very, very OP for melee characters, and it even makes Act II a little more bearable.

    I think that Tal's amulet is the challenge about completing the set. It's harder to find than the armor, even though you can find it from late normal mode on.

    Lacking the armor here :(. But yeah, only one amulet so far, and having ran Pindle for quite a while, I think I was just unlucky not to find the armor ...

    Finding Tal's amulet is what started me on this obsessive quest. It was dropped by normal Meph! If nothing else, it's taught me how to play the game properly. And find some good stuff on the way.

    Congrat's on your item finds Robin! That's already some impressive drops..I think it took me a couple of years playing before I got a Windforce for my Bowazon:)
    Since starting again from scratch, I managed to get most of Tal's set from running NM Meph. The armour dropped on Hell pit-run and currently I'm only short Lidless Eye. Plenty more to get however...

    Yes! Yes! Yes! At last it dropped. Thank you all for the encouragement. This has just made an old man very happy. Now I'd better put that Windforce to good use.

    I heard the Isenhart factories have a branch office down there.

    He's certainly got one somewhere near Pindle! I've been trying my luck there but the drops seem few and far between.

    To be honest, I believe that everyone who claims they have ever found a tal armor is a cheater or a hacker.
    I am playing this game now for about 16 years and never has a tal armor dropped for me.

    I traded twice for one on Bnet, but in hindsight I am pretty sure those were hacked items as well :).
