Great Pindle drops

I tried running Pindle for the first time yesterday and he dropped me the following items in 1,5 hours.

The Grandfather(tc 87)
Hellrack
Stormshield

Bul-Kathos' Tribal Guardian(tc 87)

Plus some other usefull items and runes. Is this normal?

Not normal no, but magic find certainly does seem to run in hot streaks. You'll probably find you go back to running him tommorrow all excited to find cool new stuff and you get nothing but junk.

Pindle's kind of like a drug dealer, the first hit is always free. After that he makes you pay for it. Or maybe he's like a slot machine, bilking old ladies out of their nickels...well, it's one of the two.

Game have little trick in. You don't play Diablo ii for about 1 or 2 weeeks, and after that when you kill first Uniq monster you prob. find some uniq. In that way i find Bul kattos weding ring and Arreat Face.

Funny you'd mention that. People would think we're crazy! :teeth:

If you got that many good things in 1.5 hours, I'd run him to death. Unfortunately these type of drops is an exception and not the norm, but still I'd run him until he quits paying off like a loose slot machine.

You had enormous luck if you found those so fast. I have ran Pindy too but not much too good things have dropped. So congrats on those!

btw, isn't it weird that no-one uses Item find thread or Trade thread anymore?

:scratch:

I ran him for 45 min yesterday, and he didn't drop a single item worth saving. So yeah, I'd say you were really lucky.

Sorry about that. I just thought a saperate thread would draw more atention to it, because no one uses the item find thread anymore :uhhuh:

Besides, it was't a "normal" set of runs. Based on the reactions, I was extremly lucky.

I will let you guys know what I will get when I run him for another 1,5 hours today.

I just spent an hour on pindle-running, but he did't drop me anything worth saving. I guess I was very lucky last night.

I guess a big bunch of high-end items can be found from Pindle but you have to be persistent, whack him down again and again. I can do about 1 hur Pindle runs but then I must stop it, I would lose my mind. I like Pit because it not even near that boring

When I first started playing 1.10 I had the same type of experience. The first time I ran Pindle, I got 3-4 high TC items from him in one evening of runs. I've never been able to duplicate that concentration of high drops from him since. Strange how people can have such similar experiences in a random event type of game. :scratch:

This typical thing happens to me all the time. When I run a spot or a monster for the first time, I get great results, but I can never dublicate that experience. I know that it is not possible and that it can only be a coinsidence, but it is strange anyway.

Nice finds. Pindle has definitely not been kind to my sorc :( She has leveled up on him from 82 -> 91 with nothing interesting so far.
