    trouble finding specific set items

    Since I reset, and am not trading, I have been looking to get my hands on some self found items specifically Trang's set, with little avail.

    I have a clvl 71 FO/FB sorc able to run anywhere upto Act 1 Hell for MF purposes. Never really had trouble before looking for a specific item like I am now, I spent enough time beating on NM Andy to net me a self found SoJ so I would have expected to land atleast 1 of those green heavy bracers while beating on her a couple hundred runs, but still no avail. Heck I've only found 1 Hexfire over all that time as well, may have found that when doing a sparatic Meph run though.

    But I digress,

    Where are the best places other than NM Andy and NM Meph that I can run trying to look for Trangs set items?

    I really should know this but been away from the game for far too long.

    I'd stick with mephisto NM for gloves and chest, not sure about wing, but for the whole set ( belt and helm ) you want to run Diablo or Baal. Hell difficulty

    Well, I'll need the Belt adventually but the wing, gloves, and chest would be a huge help to my level 50 poison necro. Need 3 items for the - enemy resistance.

    Gloves first for the extra 25% damage nothing like adding 750+ poison damage with 1 item.

    Trang's Claws, Scales - Hell Meph
    Trang's Wing - Baal Nightmare or Hell Meph (about the same)
    Trang's Girth, Guise - Hell Baal

    The Pit (in Hell difficulty) is a good place for a poisonmancer to find the belt and the helm.

    Since he's going FO/FB, I'd say AT is more appropriate. Right?

    Re: trouble finding specific set items

    Whatever you do aim for the hardest item first. One can find several of the easier to find items will trying to get the hardest part. For instance the Immortal Kings armour is where one should start looking if you wanted to complete that set. I would personally get my runner to Pindle and do him along with either ancient tunnels or Pits. If the whole set can be found with Hell Mephisto then perhaps target him.

    Re: trouble finding specific set items

    Pindleskin for the Belt and Helm, Hell Meph for the rest. If you want 3 parts, start with Meph. If you don't want to MF past A1, its The Pits.

    And welcome back :smiley:

    Edit:
    In about 9K Pindle runs he has dropped me about 6 Helms, but only one belt.

    Re: trouble finding specific set items

    Well I got my necro up to act 5 Nightmare so looks like once I get him into Hell I will be running the pits trying to get those items for him.

    thanks a lot for the help in figuring that out.

    Glad to be back :)

    Re: trouble finding specific set items

    The bosses in the Pits are about the best hopes. Run with as much MF as you safely can. If you can level your character higher it will help as well. Pindle is like a free pits boss who can't drop Tyrials so when I do pit runs I normally include Pindle anyways. Still, Pits on their own are fine as well, especially if you roll a good map that is close to the WP and has many boss packs. The other nice thing about Pits is that area can drop any item in the game so you might find other nice TC87 items while you are searching for Trangs set. If you are lucky and get the helm and the belt before the rest then think about progressing to Hell Mephisto as he would net you the other 3 items faster I would imagine.

    You can rain meteors on meph, right? Goto hellmeph, get 3piece trang, gib to necro, get necro to pits ---> Run a lot there and the rest attends to itself.

    Re: trouble finding specific set items

    Actually no I can't, my FO/FB sorc does not have a single point in Meteor, nor will she. I will have used 89 skill points before placing my second point in Cold Mastery, I know meteor instead of FM would give more power but it defeats the uniqueness of my build. :)

    You do know that the game never drops items you're looking for?

    By saying you're looking for the Trangs set you have now doomed yourself never to find it! Mawahaha.

    Probably would be quicker to trade for it.:smile:

    Re: trouble finding specific set items

    I think you're right, I ran Hell andy yesterday for about 3 hours, granted I can only do 5-6 min runs on players 1 maybe 2 fully decked out for survival. and not one piece of trangs dropped.

    Problem with trading is that I play vanilla and don't really like the idea of it right now.

    I wonder how many unique Heavy Bracers he's going to find before finally giving up

    I got the belt from Pindle two days ago and the gloves from Pindle around 2 months ago. The Belt was around run 800ish. The gloves was before I started counting.

    Re: trouble finding specific set items

    Not sure if You play SC or HC, but i can give You almost every piece of Trangs set (with exception of Wing - Canthor Trophy) for free, if You are interested...

    I play 1.11b Vanilla only, i'm completelly selfound (ie not trading) HC player...

    Reasons:I have spared all mentioned pieces and i already finished my Trang mancer and i really enjoyed him... and most importantly, it seems that You really want to play him :thumbsup:

    As i said, just let me know, if You are interested...

    4 Unique Heavy Bracers before netting a Set Heavy Bracers.

    Well at least that's what actually happened, Hell Andy dropped trangs gloves for me this last weekend. One step closer I guess :)
