    I've started adding Baal into my runs, I was just doing Ventar runs. I'm just p1'ing him now, but my trapper isn't a fast Baal killer so that's probably best for now.

    I've also rolled a great Throne of Destruction map:rolleyes:. Considering all the Baal'ing I've got ahead of me, I think its probably time to look for a really good WSK2/3 map.

    After that, I need to toss a few unneeded extras (I may still have a tome if identify on her), maybe even the cube. Skiller hunting would probably be the next lowest hanging fruit but I'm not sure I can bring myself to do that in a dedicated manner.

    Agreed. Searching for specific skillers is rough and I feel like is one of the main disadvantages to untwinked play. I calc about 3500 lk runs per skiller of a specific skill tree -.-

    Good luck baaling!

    @Luhkoh , no I meant AT. The only light immunes there are lightning mage skeles when they spawn and all but LE bosses can be broken by infinity. The mummy types have fairly low light res and drop fast, the invaders are somewhere in the middle. That's at P3 btw. I need more +skill items before I can turn that setting up.

    Lightning skele mages scare me far less than those pit rogue archers.

    I've got myself a decent WSK 2/3 map I think.

    Screenshot022.jpg

    Haven't timed any runs with the new map, but should be able to shave off quite a bit from my earlier 3:11 average. I haven't done any Baal runs with her for about two weeks, but will be doing probably an hour or so of them next week in preparation.

    HYPE!

    So much for 150-ish Rals (caster amulets), and 1,000 non amethyst perfect gems (for Diablo Gcharms). Kept 1 ammy (sorc 1/18) and rolled two skillers with decent life (Bow and Barb Combat). Seven Sur, 6 Vex, and 6 Ohms in LK soften the blow, along with decent charms and general loot. Will run AT, but will probably mix in WSK...

    I'll make my entrance back to the forums by joining an MFO and spending unhealthy numbers of hours farming... brilliant idea!

    Good to see some familiar faces still around.

    Cheers,
    Joosh :)

    Edit: Fixed link to my trade profile and for ESDV2 as well.

    1 hour of Baal today netted me 4 EUs, the highest scoring one would have been Nosferatu's Coil. Getting the trash out of the way in the pre-run.

    So, regarding lvl < 85 areas.. There is often a boss pack in Outer Cloister on my way to the Pits. Does that mean I can count any drops from those monsters for MFO as well?

    @DiabloTwoinDC Let's keep it to monsters from within a targeted area, with the option to run an A83 and A84 area, if desired. The idea was to give flexibility to people who wanted to target an area other than the Pit or AT, and I think that random drops from monsters on the way to the chosen area would change the feel a bit too much.

    Also, let's get some chatter going on teams! We have enough Baal and A85 signups interested in teams to make four pairs.

    I'll start things off by recruiting @ziambe since he was looking forward to MFO so much. I am leaving town tomorrow for two nights but will be back Wednesday night and will assign others if teams haven't formed by then :)

    Sorry just noticed this but...

    Trade tags should show the version you actually will be running in - The purpose is that if it comes to items changing hands, we know compatible versions are being used - [1.00 - 1.14d SC/HC FAM] doesn’t help here :p

    @pharphis @WoRG @Grape @ziambe @T72on1 @zemaj @Pb_pal please can you update?

    @PhineasB Would be good if you could add this to the first post.

    I haven't played in years but it's the last week of my vacation so might as well grind till I blow my mind (/sarcasm). Does anyone have recommendations for a Barbarian build running Pindleskin? I'd like to make use of Find Item.

    Also I'm teaming up with Joosh, if anyone from Baal category wants to join us they're more than welcome! We're not competing for the grand prize though :)

    Welcome @Darkoooo Cool to see you back also. Check out this vid for a Pindle barb (similar build to Pit zerker):
    That gear is optimal, and I think different options could be used to reasonable effect. An alternative is WW.

    Edit: @maxicek Thanks for pointing that out. I have updated opening posts

    @PhineasB I feel like 105 FCR might not be optimal for Pindle. 3 teleports puts you on the pack and I’ve been using Grief side hork since it’s also only one corpse I’m after (Merc will lolpoke a minion or two every now and then before Pindle drops but it’s not a big difference honestly). Definitely want to try Ghoulhide now, though. I’ve been using a 47 MF amulet and 2x HotO swap town run/teleport/Howl on HotO side but 2 Barb/35 MF would be more ideal.

    E: I tried Harmony also, didn’t feel good for me idk.

    @Yng I havent tested anything and am still noob at pindle barb, but I have some speculation. How about dual hoto 63 fcr, caster side hork for the extra 6 to FI instead of the extra mf? As I don't have dual hoto to give him I am also horking on grief hand. I agree fcr feels way better than frw from harmony since you are already pretty fast from enigma and boots. Again haven't compared runtimes, but this is all stuff I' hope to collect data on if I do some extended pindle running at some point. I also think ik helm (extra mf) may be better since you dont need the life and mana as much. I would be interested in comparing runtimes with ghoulhide and/or highlords vs chancies and mf ammy. I'm still running trangs belt setup (so i need ias somewhere if i use ghoulhide or chancies), but I could probably get away with no cbf on pindle as well. Lots of fun stuff to test :)

    @Darkoooo here is a video of a budget aternate for the pindle zerker that @drmalawi made. The zerker has gear setups that are most definitely better than others, but is all in all he's surprisingly flexible character.
