    Rakanishu - Good source for getting starter gear ?

    So I was at level 8 with my new Pala, the stony field wp was close to the cairn stones so I decided to farm Rakanishu and his thugs for a while. I never noticed the amount of rares that were dropping, in some cases 2 at a time. Also, I was capable of leveling up from 8-14 in no time. I never noticed before as I would just go throught Act1 as fast a possible. I'll remember this spot next time for new chars. Anyway, this aided in getting my Pala & merc a bit better gear/gold/lvls real fast. Here's a few numbers during the 8-14 run...

    -Rares-
    2 jawbones
    1 ring
    2 bardiches
    3 sashes
    4 bows
    2 helms
    5 large axes
    1 katar
    1 quilted armor
    2 hard leather armor
    1 rare buckler

    -other-
    2 set shield (cleglaws)
    1 sc (crimson - 5% )

    I doubt this is extensible to later difficulties because he's lightning enchanted and extra fast.

    But yes, I've noticed he drops lots of rares. No doubt because he's a superunique.

    yeah, I kill him every time I do a cow run on nightmare and he does drop a lot of rares/set/uniques

    I'd still go for the countess in act 1, her entire tower is good xp and you get runes at the same time.
