    Item rarity

    So after Tyrael/Mang Song/DWeb/Astreon what is the 5th rarest unique?

    That's probably Darkforce Spawn, but Death's Fathom is probably pretty rare as well. I'm assuming Baal drops BTW.

    Not all items come from Baal, pit run is a good place to get item when you are not good enough. A couple of items can only be get from Baal/Nilithac. Those are considered the rarest.

    There is no easy way to calculate rarity. Drop frequency from killing Hell Baal is a sensible method - and I use this method as well. But I spend very little time killing Hell Baal and I have spent many hundreds of hours playing Normal and Nightmare where high-level TC items cannot fall. So, for me, (and for most people who quest), TC-81, -84 and -87 items are much rarer than TC-3 level items even if they have comparable drop frequencies from Hell Baal.

    Similarly if you run Baal, then Cow King Set items will be the rarest.

    which ones? according to the drop calculator i just linked, tyraels might and all of the others listed can drop off bossmonsters in the pit.

    as far as i know the only thing that can only drop off baal/nihl are some high-end charm affixes. but we're talking about uniques here, right?
