So I take my first cycle of runs this morning and from the first champion pack in the ancient tunnels, out pops a Mythical Sword. I seem to be getting better luck with my blizzard sorc, even though they use the same gear - crazy. After shadow dancers from my last run last night, that makes two 87s in two cycles of runs - definately not complaining.

Found some goodies in the last few days...

Wrist Spike (jade talon), Razortail, Cantor Trophy #2, Fleshripper fanged knife, and I know I've found more, but I can't remember. Wish I could automatically have my D2 stuff here at work with me. Anyone wanna donate a fast laptop? :D

Nice .. it's been taking me about a month to go from one level to another and I'm still at 54 items or so :(. Strange how I never find anything from Pindle and how I always find the same things over and over from everywhere else .. really frustrating!

Have you tried to get new map? By using same map always you will mostly get same base items

Yup, I swap maps all the time. If I get a base item of a set/unique I don't have then it will almost always be rare/magical/normal ... if it's an item I already have, odds are that it will turn up set/unique at some point. I keep on hearing about how everyone and their pet cat has found Tal's armor but I don't think the game likes me enough to give me one :( Ah well, as the ancient Romans would say "Aluta Continua"

A while ago, someone posted about drops from chests and similar crates.
Lately i had more unique drops from such then from monsters,

Notable founds:
Titans Revenge from Large Urn in Far Oasis
Jade Talon and Steel Shade from simple stash while Meph running
Cranebeak from Evil Urn next to Shenk (or was is the chest, not sure)

*groans* I know how you feel...I've found ONE Lacquered Plate (and it was white) after the running the Pits on multiple maps ~100 times.

Ah well, this Balrog Skin has placated me somewhat.

ONE!

I changed my map about a month ago because I wasn't getting any Hydra bows. I went thru about ten maps when I came up to the one I've got now. It drops Hydra bows and Sacred armours like crazy, but I haven't seen a Tyrael's yet.

Doc I would try to give you some advice, but you know more about this game that I could ever hope to learn.

By the way, I ran Pindle as much as I run Pits & Baal, but I have yet to get any Item worth keeping from him. I'm hoping one day he will make all these runs worth it.

My Necro has just gotten to Hell and I have done ~20 Pit runs with 253% MF and I have yet to find ANY unique or set items at all. I have found a few semi-decent rares, but not much else. Is this normal?

I think you're going through a streak of bad luck. Might want to up you /players to us much as you can stand without getting killed easily. But under the best of circumstances (Players 8 and MF above 400) the the Pits average less than 1 unique and less than 1 set per run.

If you don't get anything soon with at least at players 3, you might want to change maps.

Is this on /players 1 or /players 8? But in any case it seems you have had bad luck, so just keep trying, you will get sweet finds if you be persistent enough :thumbsup:

@ Hakai & Takis

Yep, I had a Pit map too which dropped lots of hydra bows but it still required ~1000 runs there to get Windforce. That map dropped nice amount of Lacquered Plates too, but I haven't found Tal's armor yet. Sometimes game just won't let you find certain items :grrr:

And Hakai, don't swap your map too often, I usually do at least 30-50 runs before getting new one. You can do 20 first runs getting nothing and soon after that finding something really cool. That has happened to me. Only thing which matters is what base items you get, everything else is just luck

But now im going to bed, I should have done it 2 hours ago :yawn:

Because you have such a minimal chance of getting uniques, the map doesn't play that large of a part in getting items you want.

I've noticed that even though some of the base items drop a lot, I still haven't gotten the unique/set version of them. So even though the base items drop a lot, when it comes down to obtaining unique and set items of the base item, its still just all luck because the chance is so small.

I think that's the best way to go, I find often it's not the unique monsters dropping the good items just the normal run of the mill critters.

Well best find for today - IST from hell hellforge - yehaaa

I find 1 metalgrid during my Baal run!

Hope that it is quite rare for him to drop metalgrid :DD

Another good chest drop, right next to Mephisto Oculus, my first ever

Finnally I started to do some pit runs with my necro. I did 4 pitruns on players 8 with about 600%mf. Only ONE lowsetdrop.
I switched to players 1 and got trangs gloves and bonevisage in the next run.
So I tested a little bit doing pitruns on players 4, 8, 1, and the number of the uniques and sets seems to be the same at average on any players setting.
Altogether with my paladin and necro I did about 200 pitruns and I must say I saw posts with people with much less mf but better findings.
That does not bother me, Ill just play, and play, and play.... till I find them all.
So, LUCK and persistance to all of us.

Cheers
