    The General's Tan Do Li Ga

    I used to think this baby was next to useless.

    4- (57-60) 1H Dmg
    30 Durability
    35 Str Required
    41 Dex Required
    Item Level: 28
    Clvl Req: 21
    Adds 1-20 Damage
    Slows Target by 50%
    +25 Defense
    5% Mana stolen per hit
    +50-60% Enhanced Damage
    20% Increased Attack Speed

    Then by freak accident I muled it to my MA assassin and at Act 1 Hell, she still has it on switch. It is a boss-killer just like the humble Woestave and well known Kelpie snare. Hit Duriel with it and he sits there, well he still does a little damage. One whack and Baal doesn't move. All I do is hit em once or twice, release a PS chaos bolt for the freeze slow down and switch to my dual bartucs and TS/Dtail or PS/meteor which ever suits me, or both. I haven't tried this with Woestave or Kelpie on the merc, but I assume slow is maxed around 75% (someone can confirm this) so why bother. Load the merc up with CB and bye-bye Baal, Meph too as you can tank him for the Merc although this hurts, just keeping casting Shadow Master as Meph can't resist it. I never thought this character could be a viable MF vehicle but this may just change my thinking. Btw, you will need a boat-load of AR to hit Hell Baal with a non-claw weapon, but all you need is a couple hits.

    Hope this helps some people. Most probably use other tried and true ways.

    Yep, apparently slow target is bugged for act bosses. Cheese it up while you can :D

    Tried that, plus clay golem too, baal took about a min to just raise his arm :lol:

    That flail is actually a quite good weapon for low level characters, I used to think it's useless till I actually used it on my hammerdin before he got his hammer.

    My HC Blaze Enchantress liked her unique Flail quite a lot. She found it in act 3 and used it all the way to the middle of Act 1 Nightmare, where she found Aldur´s Rhythm to replace it.

    I forgot about blackbogs sharp...hmm maybe some experimenting to do.

    Tren...I know it's cheesy. I made a hammerdin too. But when they correct that problem 5 new ones will replace it.

    Cheese is a staple of D2. :lol: At lvl 21 it is surely one of the most dmging one handers available, always a good choice for my early characters. :D

    That'd be Blackhorns Death Mask

    Another borderline item. Rare enough that you want to keep, yet common enough and not useful enough to do much more then take up space, or be used in a few, small aplications (Lit Absorb, Slow on a merc)
