    Suggestion for the best places to drop Mara in Hell?

    I know there is ATMA calculator but the I'm not permitted to go to that site at work. I'm in desperate need for an answer becouse the price of a Mara on ladder is extremely costly at the moment. Please share your thoughts on the best places to find Mara in Hell difficulty.

    Much appreciated,

    XT

    If you're at work, then knowing the best place to get a Mara's won't be much use to you anyway ;)

    Anyway, according to ATMA the best monster to get it is from Duriel in Hell (quest drop or non), but since he's a real pain to get to you'd be better off farming Meph. Hell Meph quest drop has a better chance than Hell Duriel non-quest drop.

    Thanks Orphan.
    The Atma calculator contains spywares...my internet security suite picked it up after I download it.
    By hell meph quest drop you mean I only got one shot at Meph? After the quest is completed, the drop rate from Hell Meph will be lower if I want to rerun it again?

    Yes and no. It depends on whether you can create a game with a char that already has the meph quest, and then kill him with a different (MF) char that doesn't. If you can do that then you can get the quest drop every time, but if you can't then yea it'll only be the first kill, afterwhich the drop % will be lower.

    No it doesn't. That's just your security being overly cautious. There are no spyware nor virus programs in the ATMA application.

    My only Mara (and it was a dandy) came from Hell Meph and it was not a quest drop.
    It is possible for him to drop it without the quest drop just chances are better on quest.

    Ok let's suppose that if I joined a game name Act 1 Starting. The creator of the game hasn't reached act3yet , hence, killing meph or any other act boss there would be considered as getting a quest drop?

    Thanks,

    Yes it would. However that would then ruin the game for those playing if they intended to go farther than Act III in that session. Seems rather rude to me

    In that case, I rush my mule to hell difficulty and use him to create a new hell difficulty game that none of the act end boss are completed. I guess this is another good reason to rush your mule to hell difficulty aside from being able to do trade in hell right?

    But, you would then complete the quest(since the game creator hasnt completed the quest yet), thus making you unable to get quest drops from meph again.

    Throughout my playing, the best place I have had with finding a maras (this ladder included) was hell countess. She has dropped all 4 of the ones I have ever had.

    Re: Suggestion for the best places to drop Mara in Hell?

    Step-by-step:

    1) create hell game with a character that has completed act 3.
    2) kill meph with your mf character who has not completed act 3.
    3) repeat.

    If you can kill meph in full games, join chaos runs and kill meph there, you will get (and keep getting) the quest drop and bigger drops. Just make sure that the quest log says that you can't finish act 3.

    Good idea but that means the character will not be able to go beyond act3 and MF in other areas after Act3. The costs for the amount gain is not worth it in my opinion.
