Dual Tree Baal Running Sorceresses Run Times After recently Matting a Blova Sorceress and spending a while running Baal afterwards, I really got a feel for the character and can now appreciate why Liquid Evil, BobTheWarrior, bcoe and maareek rated their Blova's so highly when running Baal. I thought that Nova would be too weak to deal with CI's and that would be the builds downfall, however it has surprised me and I've taken her to 91 without it feeling a chore at all. This, mixed with the following quote from bcoe in his own Mat thread: Got me thinking, can any of the other dual tree Sorceresses compete. I don't consider myself even remotely an authority on the topic and so turn to the forum and it's vast amounts of knowledge and enthusiasm to help me and perhaps a few others to draw an accurate conclusion. I know that sirpoopsalot made quite a few different characters trying to find the same thing, as well as bcoe indicating it in the above quote, however I was hoping for a much larger sample spreading across the forum, utilising many builds and gear setups. With that unnecessarily lengthy introduction out the way, here's what I ask of you. Take your dual tree Sorcs out for a Baal running session and time those runs, in the style of the Optimal Baal Runner Research thread, it might be worth recording the fastest runtime as well as the average. Give us an idea of the character you're running with by posting stats, skills, gear and playstyle too. As I have said already, I'm not an authority in the field of dual tree Sorcs and the Blova is perhaps the first I've made that has been well geared and ran Baal beyond level 90, which means over the next few weeks I'll be creating quite a few more characters and running them to level 90, then at level 90 I'll start recording runtimes. Important factors to consider: - We aren't clearing the WSK or ToD, just the waves and Baal. - All recorded runs should be done at players 1/8/3, or 3/8/3 if you're lazy like me. - Record any deaths. By the end of this, hopefully we'll have a clearer picture of the best build for Baaling.
