    Is Pindleskin worth MF'ing?

    What is the highest unique he can drop? And can he still drop stuff higher than baal? Thanks.

    pindle doesnt drop spectacular, its only since he's so fast to run. i usually just do shenk/edritch/pindle every game .. ive gotten some very nice stuff from them and it only takes like 3 min.

    and baal can drop anything .. theres no "dropping higher than baal".

    so yes, do pindle. =D

    dont just do pindle runs every single game. you will get a realm down pretty fast. instead try other bosses as well such as andy and meph.

    Killing Pindle/Shenk/Eldritch is a good way to collect gold too. I usually grab 5 or 6 magic/rare exceptional/elite items from them with each run, making ~150k gold, fast and easy (go go gambling :lol: ) !

    Due to the increased drop rates in 1.10 Pindle drops better now than he does in 1.09. It's just a question of luck...I've done hundreds of Pindleskin runs without finding anything usefull at all, and then suddenly Natalyas Claw dropped, it's just a question of persistence.

    It was supposed to be a rare drop:) I think Scissor's Suwayyah are TC 84... If you want substitute it with a green lacquered plate. And if you play single player without massive duping, then yes Natalyas Mark is a good drop.

    Sure it is a rare drop :uhhuh: !
    I remember the good ol' days of 1.09 (and before) when nat's claws were VERY expensive. That was before all those godly runewords... Now only a few set/unique weapons/armors are still worth something :p !

    I don't know where Chimaera got his info from but the 1.10 patch REDUCED Pindle's drops (along with Shenk and Thresh Socket). This is why you can do 500 runs and get nothing but junk now. As someone else said, the only real reason to do Pindle is speed, most people can do at least 2 or 3 Pindle runs in the time it takes to do Baal (if you don't have Enoobma and maphack) and in the long run this means u will still get decent drops.

    What the 1.10 patch DID increase was the chance that a normal monster in Hell (and NM) will drop a unique item. When I run Pindle I always kill everything and have gotten about five times as many uniques from the monsters outside than from Pindle and his minions.

    For the most part I am over Pindle now and just clear a path to the throne (which is essentially the same as a Pit run) then kill Baal. I get plenty of gold to keep me gambling happily from all the champs I kill on the way. My MF Meteorb Sorc has 840% MF (counting the merc) and gets craps from Pindle while my pure Trapsin (amazing how fast Fireblast kills champ gloams...) has a little less than 200% and has gained more uniques in one week than the sorc got from Pindle in six months.

    I looked in the game files....It's true that Pindle's inital "drop class" has been reduced, but the "drop class" that it refers to has not...which means that he hasn't been nerfed. Along with the general increase in drop rates, this means that he is actually better than before! Where did you get your info from???
