    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.

    As far as I am aware a Dark Stalker cannot drop from TC72. Are you sure it was this type of monster?

    Sweet!!

    I've been playing a loooong time and still haven't found a Stormie. Nice find indeed!

    I have my share of Elite uniques but that is one item I really would like to have.

    Not sure if I understood you right, whether the item was from Andy's lair or the pits but Andariel's lair's alvl is 73, so they can drop from 72 there, and pits alvl is 85 so they can drop everything there...

    You learn something new every day--I found a Stormshield at some point (I must have done, it's in my stash and I don't often trade), but I never realised it was a desirable item at all. Mind you, I suppose the "Damage reduced by 35%" mod I've only just noticed it has should have set the warning bells ringing, eh? :rolleyes:

    You're a lucky mofo, Spook. I have yet to find one. I'll gladly take one off your hands, though, if you feel you have too many :teeth:

    :lol: Kung Poo I find it very funny that you called me a mofo, because it like the insult/greeting that me and my friends always use. Coincidence or something more sinister..... :teeth:

    Funny indeed. Although I didn't intend it as an insult... you know that, right? :)

    Thanks for the congrats, guys, I'm a happy man.

    Now, if only I had a character that could use it!! The only char I have that meets the level 73 requirement of the Stormshield is a bowazon.. my highest shield-user is a level 66 barbarian. Think I might play him for a while.. :)

    btw to clarify, yes, this was from The Pit. I got frustrated with Andy because I was having so much less luck with her Hell drops than her Nightmare ones, and went elsewhere. The irony is, The Pit is the one place which has always frustrated me, and never delivered anything good before..
