    My first ever completion of a fishymancer solo attempt...and pleasantly surprised

    A merc with Strength non-eth partizan without ed, 9 Skellies, 7 Mages and a clay golem (no revives) are enough to take down hell Baal in a 4-player game. Or it is because of my relatively high level at 84? The only casualty is one mage. :D

    "My baal" is usually surrounded by 15 skellies, 14 mages and tons of revives... and I can take him down in 5 minutes... I'm bored! I gust sit there, watch tv and amp dmg every 30 seconds! :p

    Yeah, killing Baal takes quite a while, especially in hell. My tip is to give your merc an item with Crushing Blow. That'll speed up things tremendously. Mine usually gets an Obedience Thresher.

    You can always throw in a "Black" and try joining the fight:)

    True, but why risk your own life? That's what you have your merc for. You'll have a hard time hitting Baal, anyway.

    Of course, this is just for the hack of it. Throw in a Black, Angelic combo and you'll have something to do rather than wait 5 minutes for you stupid slow skellies to do the job for you..

    Uh, "Strength" has CB on it. Hence the ease of him taking out Hell Baal. No need to melee yourself.

    I prefer, as a cheaper route (aka no HR's) Insight, Andy's, and Duress. Duress may only have 15% CB, but its enough IMO.
