    Sorc Help with Tal Rasha

    Hi, new the to forum (1st post), but long time lurker.

    I've got a lvl 72 Sorc, currently at Act V Nightmare, doing Pindle runs to get a couple of Tal Rasha's set items (Lidless Eye, Horadric Crest, Fine Spun Cloth).

    My question is what is Pindleskin's probability to drop each of Tal Rasha's set itmes on Nightmare? (I know the Hell drop %, but not Nightmare).

    Thank you kindly,
    NVES

    here at the 1.10 drop %, i don't think they change into 1.11

    Tal Rasha's Adjudication (amu) 0.00000466195885
    Tal Rasha's Fine-Spun Cloth (zmb) 0.00004238376947
    Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest (xsk) 0.00009294262404
    Tal Rasha's Lidless Eye (oba) 0.00003078828854
    Tal Rasha's Guardianship (uth) can't drop it.

    In other words don't bother running NM Pindle for items. NM / Hell Meph should drop you the Orb, Belt and Mask pretty quickly. Then it is a matter of luck getting the Amulet - NM Andy is probably your best target. Then go to Pindleskin in Hell for the Armor.

    I was able to find the death mask when doing WSK runs off of a gremlin (small impish characters).
    Just get the MF up and things should be dropping like crazy.

    Wow those %'s suck!
    I guess I won't waste my time running Pindle on NM.

    Any other suggestions on where to get these items, I know the armor will have to wait a while.

    Thanks!

    @jbarlak: WSK (in hell) is a mlvl 85 area, meaning any item can drop there, but loading on MF does not guarantee that items will be dropping like crazy. It's just a matter of luck, sometimes you can get even 6 or 7 uniques in one run, and there are times when in lots of runs you don't get any.

    @nves: As said, don't bother with pindle in NM, he's worthless until hell difficulty. If you want items in NM, run meph, he's fairly easy and can drop well. Baal in NM can drop many Tal Rasha items, but the armor is in the TC87 if I remember correctly (TC = Treasure Class, and 87 is the highest, so it's pretty rare); Pindle in Hell, Baal in Hell and mlvl 85 areas can drop the armor. Baal in NM will give both good experience and good items.

    Edit: Also, Tal Rasha is not mandatory for a sorc, although the set is very good, there are other items which make the sorc incredibly good:
    The occulus, death fadom or rare orb with +skills(weapon)
    magefist or frostburn or rare gloves with FCR and resists(gloves)
    skin of the vipermagi, skullder's ire (armor)
    rare amulets with +skills or mara's kaleidoscope (amulet)
    sigon's shield (high %block and +1 to skills) or moser's (highest %block and 2 open sockets) or lidless wall for shields
    ring with +resists or Stone of jordan, harlequin's crest, peasant crown, crown of ages and crown of thieves are good helmets
    etc.

    Tal Rasha's Guardianship is in TC84.

    @nves: If you have a dual element sorc, Tal's set is arguably the best setup for your sorc. In terms of item rarity vs efficiency, Tal's is the best.

    Well, firstly welcome to the forum. Next, why not just proceed to hell and run Den of Evil if you don't wanna go further than that. Den of Evil is also lv85 area right?

    No Suiling.

    The earliest mlvl 85 area is The Mausoleum (the "extra" level where Blood Raven is)

    What he said. :thumbsup:

    Especially for a sorc that utilizes Meteor/Fireball and something like Frozen Orb ... Tal's is the best. Someone crunched the numbers over at the Sorc forum in the thread "The truth about Tal's set" .... it's stickied I believe. Once you get the set completed and get somewhat high ... you'll be doing very good damage. Plus, once you slap some fire facets in there and it gets even better.

    Well - I've switched over to doing NM Meph runs - been doing it for a while now, and just last night I finally got Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest.
    I'll keep going until I get the Fine Spun Cloth.

    Would it be possible for someone to post what the % are for Meph NM to drop: i)Tal Rasha's Lidless Eye, and ii) Tal Rasha's Adjudication.

    Second request, could you tell me whom would be better to run for the Lidless Eye, and Adjudication and what the % are.

    Thank you kindly!

    Don't hunt for the amulet... it's too rare. Just be estatic when it finally drops.

    I've got a better idea - why don't you download ATMA? It's got a built in drop calculator, in addition to its stellar muling capabilities.

    Noodle - I'm at work and not able to download it.

    I was hoping that someone here could just post what the drop % were.

    Thanks,

    NM Meph Percentages:
    Lidless Eye: 1/2149
    Adjudication: 1/12271

    For Tal's Amulet, Hell Andariel is your best bet, at 1/9687, although Nightmare Andariel is also good, at 1/10636. Hell Duriel has the highest drop chance, at 1/9243, but he's much more difficult to get to and to kill.

    Edit: Normal difficulty Mephisto (1/16192), Diablo (1/12379) and Baal (1/12274) can also drop Adjudication.
