Well that was a surprise After killing Nightmare Andariel a dozen times to verify her extreme high unique & set drop chance, I decided to take my top character and kill her in Hell a few times. My luck was not so good, a lot of magic and rare items, another damn pair of Sander's stupid boots, and a Fleshrender. So, since I had the MF gear on, I figured I'd give The Pit another chance, despite the fact that it has never provided me with anything good. This was a terrible idea. A couple of boss packs of Dark Archers just tore me to pieces. Still, I was slightly drunk, and bloody-minded, and kept going back to recover my body. Must have died about 6 times, but I chipped away at them. I kept thinking "I should just quit now before I lose any more XP", but no, too bloody-minded. Finally secured the front room, and stepped into the next one. Dark Stalker pack. Not too bad. Took them down, and what hits the ground? A goddamn Stormshield. The first elite unique I've ever found, and it's a Stormshield. I gather this is one of the more desirable items in the game, yes? Certainly I've seen enough people talking about them in guides. Wow.
