    Pit Runner

    I know this has been posted before, but I can't seem to find it. I was wondering what everyones pit runner looks like. Including gear, resistance, health, mana, dmg, speed, and # of players.

    Everyone has their favorite. My current one is a MS zon with an upp'd, jewel socketed withwild string and ~330 mf. Pits are fairly easy at p3-p6 and p8 isn't bad, just takes longer.

    my MF overlord has over 650% MF, and another 130% on my moron. If you are running just for items, P1 is all you need, since the bosses will always drop the same number of items. If you are going for XP as well, P8 is easily doable with the right character

    Depends on my mood, either my overlord or frenzy horker.

    I have three chars that can do Pits Hell on p8 with varying levels of satisfaction:

    Necro Summoner/Exploder

    Harley
    Maras
    Marrowalks
    Ali Baba
    Skullders
    2x Nagels
    Goldwrap
    Chance Guards
    Homunculus
    Tele staff on switch

    Various charms, mana/life, resists. No skillers at all.

    I've found that he can do p8 quite fast now that I have a great merc weapon. I socketed my 3 sock Tomb Reaver and gave it to my Might merc and he gets the first kill very fast and chain CE does the rest. Very, very safe and has quite a bit of MF.

    Witchyzon

    upped WWS
    Lionheart
    ... some other stuff. The usual gear from the guide. Can't remember because I haven't played her for awhile.

    On p8 she kills quite fast which surprised me. The only thing that worries me is that i'm so used to having curses to control monsters and meat shields surrounding me that sometimes I play kamikaze and not heed warning signs of imminent danger. Like crazy overpowered archer packs that can get my Zon in trouble. Even with a tough Valk, merc and decoy and slow missle.

    I find that I don't have the same MF luck with her although rune finding is a bit better. Go figure.

    Hammerdin.

    The basic gear except for no HoZ and Wiz instead of HoTO. Kills very fast but same thing with Zon, dangerous ranged attackers can get him if I don't pay attention. Has less MF but can kill quickly to make up for it a bit. Hammerdins have basically no monster control.

    For me, i'm a necro summoner at heart so that's what I MF with.

    I only have 1 character that's really suited for it which is my summon/venomancer...but he can only do players 1 efficiently:(

    Harlequinn Crest
    Skullder's Ire (Ethereal:))
    Goldwrap
    rare gloves with MF+resist
    rare boots with MF+resist
    +2necromancer skills ammy
    Arm Of King Leoric
    Homonculus

    On switch a Gull dagger and a Rhyme necro head...but I don't really use that in the pits.

    All my chars are more or less pit runners :)

    My main char is my lightning spearazon: runs pits at P8 since exp is the priority.
    Main skills are maxed LS/CS/LB with pts into PS
    ~ 1-3200 CS
    ~1-2500 LS

    Equip:
    Rare mat spear
    Switch: Tstokes+rhyme round shield
    Rare rings with mf/resists
    Rare ammy with resists/mana leech/+skill
    Rare tiara with +skill/resists
    Crafted blood gloves/belt/boots with mf/resists
    Ptopez Skulders
    Charms are resists/mf/gheeds and 2 skillers.

    My merc is an act III ice mage with an eth shako(Ptopez), Lidless, viper and culwens.

    On average, takes 15min, give or take depending on whether LI archers are around.

    I just re-equipped my pindle javazon and she is a very good universal mfer now. :) In her new equipment she isn't effective at p8, but that doesn't matter, because she's already 94 and I want to concentrate on items. This is what she wears:

    Harlequin's Crest (Ptopaz)
    Tal Rasha's amulet
    Tal Rasha's armor (Ptopaz)
    Tal Rasha's belt
    Titan's Revenche [eth.] (normal on switch if etheral has to refill itself)
    Moser's Blessed Circle (2 x Pdiamond)
    Ravenfrost
    6/6 Dual leecher

    1 Gheeds Fortune
    1 Javelin and Spear skiller
    Various mf and resist charms

    = exactly 400 mf :D

    The run the pits with 2 characters, a necro summoner and a strafer. My windy may start running them, depending if I ever get around to patting him. My strafer hits about 350 and can do players8. My necro only desires player1 runs, as CE is much better at p1, and he hits about 400 MF. I NEED MORE GHEEDS! Only have one :(.

    I have never run the Pits purely for items. (the most ive done is when questing through hell for the EXP, but even then its usually less than 5 runs before i move on and forget about it)

    The only character i've used to run for 'itamz' was my strafer. like fbob its normally just a stop over for some easy levels.

    Strafer:
    WindForce(pwnage)
    Tal's armour,helm and belt (2 ptopaz's)
    Chance guards
    War travellers
    Ravenfrost
    Angelic ring/ammy combo
    inven was packed with a combo of MF and ar/max charms.

    = about 400% MF

    could do p8 easy enough, but normally only did p6 to keep speed/item ratio better
