    300-500 mf is what the census says to be good after that it is just luck and alot of runs.

    How many runs have you made? Nothing great will happen after like 30 runs, unless you are lucky. And after that its still luck. MF-Sorceress are just like any other mf-char in that evene with alot mf they still need to do ALOT of runs to get anything thats worth keeping. Its all luck in the end! MF just helps a tiny tiny little bit.

    if you are taking longer than 1 minute to kill 1 mob/group, then it is too long. try a different mob. if your char is well-built, there should be a relatively easy mf run somewhere you can do.

    for me:
    zon = hell a5su's, 1-2 mins total.
    bliz sorc = hell meph, 1-2 mins total.
    cl/fo sorc= countess, 2-3 minutes total.
    ik barb, ww barb = pindle, eldritch for hork, 1-2 minutes.

    really tho there is no point to do nightmare meph if you not on hardcore. The odds that he would drop (ire,hoz and gaze) is kind of poor, since thats almost his highest tc he could drop on nightmare. And on the other hand hell meph maybe a little harder but his odd on rolling on that tc is a bit higher then nightmare meph(ofcourse luck is not the point here just talking about normally). Beside you can you use the malt tricks on the dumb meph :)

    I have a bliz sorc, doing hell mephi with low lvl dmg blizzard (only 1 maxed synergy) and moat trick. It takes me on average 1:40 per run (measured over 20 runs) I do not maphack.

    If you do not use the moat trick and you get a high damage spell to kill mephi (wether it is blizzard or FO) you could do it about 20 seconds faster. My damage is low because i choose to go for safety (HCL)

    A maphack could probably reduce your average run by another 20 seconds or so, making it 1 minute per run.

    What are you , lvl 2?

    My meteor sorc does runs all the time in hell mode. Hell meph takes under a minute, countess dies in 1 hit, pindle takes too long n isnt worth it.

    Whose lvl2? And can we please remain at least a little polite.
    Its nice that you can kill so fast, but then i wonder why it takes so long for you to kill Pindle. Pindle is usually the fastest to kill and takes like 15secs, with connect it might take 45 secs.
    Between with a pure Fire Sorc and Meteor you are sure to kill that fast. But those 2 tree builds are not that powerful and so killing will take a bit more time.

    Also it depends on the time you need to get down to Meph and from what you are saying you are possbily using MH. With that i'll easily get under a minute aswell. :teeth: So your boasting goes to nirvana Mr.

    pindle takes too long n isnt worth it.



    WTF??? not worth it >.<, i totally disagree each runs takes me 15 to 30 seconds max (My merc helps alot) only problems with pindle is Cold Immune but if he is i just leave and make next game plus pindle can drop what everything but 3-4 items Meph cant drop a shitload of items plus the time it takes to teleport to him and if map is big it takes even longer...andy runs are totally useless too many monsters inside the throne and takes to long to get to her same with countess.

    Could you please cut that language? HOw about you better post why you are so fast instead of calling people nubs when they are not? This language is not really appreciated here. Most are dedicated sorc-players and if there are people new to sorc ways then we help them, no matter how stupid there question is.

    So instead fo calling us noobs please tell us how exactly you get to run Meph in under 1 minute EVERY time you run.... thx :D
    What build do you use etc. Instead of attacking us try to be productive? :teeth:

    Yes, I'm going to assume you were being productive when you accused me of using mh?



    pindle hell always has 2 immunes, big chance of making a useless game if your sorc.

    What exactly is the countess dying in 1 hit from?

    Pindle isn't always dual immune. He's naturally poison immune and cold/fire/lightning resistant (fire from the fact he's always fire enchanted). If he spawns lightning enchanted, cold enchanted or magic resistant, that'll give him an additional immunity. He's rarely immune to both elements of a typical sorc build (fire/cold or lightning/cold).
