    How Many of U run Baal on the Glitch?

    Title says it all, i was just kind of curious how many people run baal on the glitch vs. the traditional route. I made a hammerdin (6 yrs. of D2 and i finally broke down and did it) who's main job in life is to MF on Baal. Currently he runs him glitched. Anyone have any thoughts or experiences from running baal both ways? Is it worth it really to even bother with?

    Thanks

    Re: How Many of U run Baal on the Glitch?

    What i mean by "glitch" is when u begin a game with a char that has already killed Baal for quest, then after the game is permed, u enter with a char THAT NEEDS BAAL FOR QUEST and kill baal with said character. By doing so u get Baal to do his quest drop rather than just a normal drop. The quest drops are supposed to be of better value than regular drops.... more uniques, sets, rares etc. than had u run him after u had killed him for quest.

    wow...is that true? It seems backwards to me, but if that's true I may never make another Pat/Mat mf char :D

    It's true. I have a sorc to run Meph and I join baalbot games so that she can't get the quest when she kills him. Same works for Baal.

    Does this mean you perm a game for 5minutes just to do this? Wouldn't doing two baal runs be better than one glitched?

    Oh, that glitch.

    DayDream, when the glitch is active, all items are guaranteed rare quality or better (magics because of failed sets).

    When you make a new game, you have a ~30 second window to quit and rejoin. I wouldn't advise trying to mule with this method, but for making a new game it works fine. Alternatively, multiple CD keys, but we won't go into that.

    Re: How Many of U run Baal on the Glitch?

    Why not? Having multiple copies of D2 running is a perfectly legal way, assuming you have 2 sets of valid CD-keys. Of course, I'd advise against using things like loaders etc, but there is the possibility of using 2 PC's, or the Fast User Switch trick, described somewhere on these forums (works for XP only). I use this method to mule and also to boost my chars with my BObarb when needed.

    This trick is well known. The best way of doing it is to find a friend to run with. One has a pat/mat, the MFer has a champion.

    On meph it's much easier, you can just do him in baalruns. Even if some people whine about you not teleing for their lazy behinds.

    I use a loader for simplicity, although apparently you can use multiple user accounts on XP to do multiple installs. Either way, it's distinctly grey area and it's my impression we don't talk about that here.

    The fast user switch trick is OK to talk about, there's even a thread explaining it in some sticky somewhere.

    BTW, the glitch is really worth doing if you can do it around as fast as you'd normally run (with a friend, that's very easy to accomplish).

    Not sure what part of fast user switching you mean only work on XP, but I have Vista and two legal copies on two user accounts a.s.o.

    there's always the option of joining a game where someone is trading.

    random note: Thanks a bunch for the sorc meph guide helvete- used it to build my little mfer and she's already come up with some nice stuff for me :D

    same thing on that random note, that guide has really helped me out. I got like 3 lidless eyes, an occy and ton more just yesturday by pretty much using the sorc meph guide.

    If you were to apply that same thing to Baal I'm sure the drops would be killer... you'd just need a char that can do Baal quickly which is a lot more expensive then a blizz sorc for meph.
