    Hell countess q's.

    I've got a barb I like playing and I think I want to level him up on countess runs instead of pits (I got no room for mf on him, pits seem like a fools errand without it). Before I start, I've got 3 questions:

    1. Can she be "first-dropped" like meph?

    2. Is there an advantage to doing so?

    3. Can she be find-item'd for a second chance at a rune drop?

    I would love to get some extra runes while I level up.

    Countess for the most part drops for crap even on quest. So trying to first drop her is pointless. She can not be " find itemed " . You might have luck killing all the champ packs on your way down to her to get runes / items

    I useto hell countess like no other, in reward i got many shael/sol/dol/amn one pul and alot of lower runes. Eventually i found Shako off countess with 69% mf, *btw i ran this all with lvl 84 ik barb* i took him from 84-89 with countess runs i believe also good way to level merc.

    You can first drop her to get the chest to pop out 2983752938 pieces of gold every kill, but that wouldn't really make sense. Every now and then you can get decent charms or something from it but the amount of time it takes to do get your 2 characters into the game could easily be spent doing something more productive.

    I suppose if you're doing first drop on meph then running countess in same game it'd be worthwhile to not kill the countess with the meph game creator, but that's about it.

    Thanks for the input, I killed her for quest and moved on.

    Travincal is much more interesting. :eek:
