When does Baal spawn?

i guess the title says it all... if i want to do baal on players 3, but do the minions on players 1, is that possible? basically, does baal spawn when you enter the throne area, or not until you go into the world stone area? thanks!

He spawns when you go through the portal I believe. So yeah you could do the minions on P1 and then switch to P3.

it should work to do the minions and then when he goes trough the portal type in a diff /players

i think it works

as he was much harder when i tried to swirch from players 1 to players 8 on him after listers pack had died

Sorry for the curiosity whomhead, but why would you do Baal himself on p3?
well, as i understand it, killing a boss on players 3 virtually eliminates the chance of them rollig a no drop for one of their items. so doing baal on players 3 means i alwys get six items. baal's minions, on the other hand, always drop one items regardless of the players setting, so i might as well do them on players 1. plus the minions are much more dangerous than baal himself, and they are easier to kill on players 1. :D

actually, this reminds me of another question. superuniques, such as pindle and eldritch always drop two items, regardless of players setting. but baal's minions only drop one item. does this mean that they aren't super uniques? and if so, why aren't they?

To ensure you get a full 6 item drop from him :)

IIRC p3 is the magical number that makes him fail all no-drop rolls.

They're threated like Champions I think. They only drop 2 potions and 1 item or one huge pile of gold, like all champions, but they're unique in the same time. Confusing really. Maybe because if they were threated like SU, 4 potions 2 items for each of them, it'd be a real treasure trove! Running Baal would kinda useless heh?

that'd be soooooo sweet. oh well, they can still drop pretty well, although i usually just get gold.
