    2 Stones of Jordan
    Gloom’s Trap
    Silkweave boots

    or/and


    Enigma
    Heart of the Oak

    All uniques you listed (including Arachnid) can be found from hell Meph. Running nm Andariel is maybe the easiest way to find 2x SoJ.

    For runewords you mentioned...I have been told hell Flayer Jungle is good place to find runes. But you need to do hundreds of p8 runs there to get the runes you want unless you are really lucky. They runes you need for HotO you can get from hell Hellforge/hell Countess

    Finding all that gear requires much effort, good luck!

    Frostburns
    2 Stones of Jordan
    Gloom’s Trap
    Silkweave boots

    Those can be found from nm Meph. HoZ and SoJs are the problematic part, they are quite rare. For SoJs run nm Meph or Andy but that will require lots of runs. Don't go to Pit on nm, it isn't good place on nm, Pit is worth running only on hell difficulty

    Wizardspike and Harlequin Crest can be found from nm Baal, im not sure though. For those hell is better

    Mara's/Arachnid can be found only on hell difficulty

    Some of the runes required for HotO can be found on nm but the chances aren't very good. And Enigma...you can get those runes on hell difficulty if you are very lucky

    the pit is only good in hell, in nm its useless. for your act 5 character, the best bit would still be mephy norm, then baal if you can manage it.

    That is quite a list, you can beat the game without half of that, in fact I did with my hammerdin :).
    You might try running NM meph for some of the items.
    Rhyme is a cheap but good alternative to hearld of zak, and you can put in into a pala shield which already has some resists. You could also try gambling circlets for + skills instead of the harliquin crest and +skill amulets instead of the Mara's. In hell difficulity, weapons drop with +paladin skills, a cheap alternitave to the Heart of the Oak.

    Pit Runs
    Mausoleum Runs
    Maggot Lair Level Three Runs
    Ancient Tunnels Runs
    Sewer Level Two Runs
    Forgotten Temple Runs

    But to get good uniques, you'd have to be at NM level at least, right?

    (sorry for dumb question ...)

    It depends on what your version of good is. If you want elites, you have to be in hell or act 5 in nightmare mode to get those items on a regular basis.

    Yes, definitely looking for "elite" types (i.e., "good" for me :)).

    That's what I suspected; I get alot of relatively nice drops from Andy in NM mode, but I'm looking for higher end stuff ... I think I'm spoiled now :)

    Thanks for the info,

    D
