    She drops up to Ko, although that's very rare indeed.

    Can a Blizzard sorc do Hell Countess runs safely? Yes... except you won't be able to hurt her (from what I remember reading she's always Cold Immune). So bring a nice strong merc if you intend to try that.

    just out of curiosity and sheer boredom.....i ran my 91 zon 25 times against nm countess and hell countess.....results?
    3 shael 1 sol and two thuls in nm.....
    1 shael 2 sol 1 amn and 4 thuls.....
    think you might have been able to cube up to an amn with the other smaller misc runes that dropped.....i know this isn't very scientific but i didn't see very much difference in her drops

    If you don't do a lot of pre-buffing with that Sorc... find a normal staff with enchant on it make Leaf and enchant your merc (keep it on weapon switch). You won't get good damage out of it but your merc will land significantly more hits.

    Merc Equip suggestions:

    Act V: Sazabi set rocks the Countess
    Act II: Amn, Shael, Shael, Tomb Reaver; Guillame's Face, & Up'd Rattlecage (Lots o' damage, Lots o' speed, Lots o Crushing Blow)

    Act I or Act III: Fire them and get a melee merc

    I've run the her in both NM and Hell and have got about the same runes, though I did get a MAL last time :drool:

    To me the biggest difference is that she can drop better items in Hell as well. I got my Hevans Light (for my pally) off her in Hell.

    In Hell I have always seen here fire/cold immune. My act2 Def merc kills her pretty quick though.
