    IK armor from pit run?

    I want to make a IK barb and never find a armor( from day 1 I play Diablo 1.09 to now 1.10). I heared a lot about lot of people find IK armor from pit.Is is true? I do a lot of pit runs and have no luck. Where is the best place to find it? The pit? And any of you find one from the pit?

    For hopefully the last time, there is no best place to find any item. The pit, along with all the other level 85 areas can drop IK armor, but at the same time so can pindle, baal and all other level 83+ areas, along with many other monsters.

    Persistance is the key, chances are you won't find what you're looking for, but rather an item(s) that you can trade off for what you need.

    I've seen a sacred armor drop in the pit, so it's possible. Just to find a green one.

    If you are going to look anyways, try the Icy Cellar and Worldstone Keep if you want a higher probability for it to drop. Pindleskin and Thresh Socket aren't bad either. People do the Pit even though it has a lower probability to drop since the monsters are much weaker and less dangerous there.

    no, no, no, no, and um.... NO! That isn't true. In this game the only reason a monster could have less of a chance to give something, is because of lvl or if the game designers designate a monster to be different (i.e. super uniques)

    also to clear up things about mf, just because monsters can drop an item type, doesn't mean that they will drop a set or unique version easily, thats what mf is for. Pindleskin has a 0.26830190% chance to drop a Sacred Armor or other TClvl 87 armor. Now MF does nothing to increase or decrease this number, but only increases the chance that this item, if selected by the game, will be magic or better.

    btw, that percentage came from http://www.d2data.net/

    This is really funny. I read about people doing Pit runs, and I decided to do one myself. I what did I get? Yes, the Uber armor Arctic Furs! (Quilted Armor, 30-46 Defense, 20 Durability, 12 Str Required, +275-325% Enhanced Defense, +10% Resistance to All) :)

    pindle never drops for me lol

    ive found plenty of stuff from pindle (including 1.10 Ik armour i might add) and travs + tons of other stuff, but none of it has ever actually dropped from pindle, always his minions lol.

    Yea id pit / pindle in the same game for best chance of IK armour

    i've been doint pit runs for the past month or so on a regular basis, and up until this weekend i have found 1 ali baba, so on friday that just passed i found skullders from pindle, then did pit and found ik armour, the next day doing pit, i found arkaines valor.

    you can find sweet items in the pit, but you wont find the best of the best on every run. you have to keep running pit over and over and hope for the best. I did my pit runs with 8 ppl ingame, and only 200mf on my frenzy barb,
    my buddy found tals armour twice in pit, so the items are there, you just need them to drop the right color

    I got Tal and IK armors in the pit, so yes, it's possible.

    They don't exactly drop like rain though.

    I got two IK sacred armor in 50 3-player Pindleskin runs. Single player runs are kind of a sad way to go. I suggest getting some MF buddies (or a second/third computer so you can solo 2/3-player games without arguing who gets to whack Pindleskin).

    It just so happens that WSK is the same area level as the Pit (85).

    So is the Chaos Sanctuary.
