    Good bosses to MF?

    I have a pure blizz sorc. She does decently well against meph and duriel. With merc, pindle is also not a problem even if cold immune. I also run andy but I'm not a huge fan because of all of the other monsters that are around.

    Are there other good bosses to run as well? I know some people like to MF shenk but he's always surrounded by cold immunes. Any tips for other bosses that are good to run?

    Diablo is quite easy for Blizz sorc. Merc needs to kill 1-3 monsters while opening seals. Just tele past those normal oblivion knights.
    With good merc (Reapers Toll is good merc's weapon for these runs) blizz sorc can run diablo even in full games.

    duriel :eek:
    never even considered running him/her/it
    Andy shouldn't be too much of an issue, between a good merc & static most things should die pretty quickly.
    Diablo is also a pretty good run assuming you are happy to tele past the CI trash and your merc can handle the CI mobs you need to kill.

    I never even considered doing diablo. I'm super worried about cold immunes but maybe its worth a shot. My merc uses insight cv because I need the mana regen. It also uses an ethereal up'd shaftstop and andraiels helm. Any tips to make my merc stronger besides an ethereal cv insight? I was thinking some life leech would help. Is there anything I can add to an armor or helm socket wise to add life leech? Does life leech even work against bosses? Should I go for a 40/15 jewel instead? Do those still exist?

    Lots of people do Ancient Tunnels MF runs with blizz sorcs, no cold immunes there and good treasure class drops.

    high council are also easy with blizz. only one of them is always cold immune, and occionaly the other bosses can be, but a decent merc will make short work of them.

    Do people run pits w/ orb sorcs? Or is it a waste of time when you can do harder?

    Not sure what you mean by you can do harder.

    Pits needs a pure lite sorc with infinity or a dual elemental sorc - all three elemental immunities found in there.

    I occasionally run the Pits with my Orbitaller Sorc just to break things up.
    Quite a nice run, but then I've always had a soft spot for running the Pits.

    Pits is an excellent run for MFing, its one of my major mainstays. The monsters can drop anything that monsters in WSK or CS can, but they die a lot faster.

    Pits is a great run in Chaos games...you get the extra drops from being in a high player game, but you still kill things at a reasonably quick rate.

    But pure Orb isnt going to be as efficent as CL/FO at clearing Pits, especially since two of the four monster types there are native CIs

    I have a meteorb that runs Shenk, Andy, Pindle, Meph, Pits, Countess, and LK. It only takes about 20 mins tops and good variety in play as well as drops. I get tired of the wash, rinse, repeat of most mf runs. I will even throw in a trav, Arreat Tunnels, Baal or Diablo from time to time but the first set is always.

    The thing about varying your runs, you're still repeating the same stuff. The area may change, but the spells are the same.

    So you use different characters. :D

    But then again you're probably pushing the same buttons. So.....

    play a different game. ;D

    Or just keep doing the same things over and over and over and over again, like me. :thumbup:
