    Thanks Twibz!

    I wrecked Andariel pretty well, but her drops weren't great, even with the merc delivering the final kill. Hoping A2 gives up some better loot!

    Don't worry. In single pass, most of the useful drops will come from random monsters anyway.

    What do you guys use imbues on? I'm thinking a claw since I'm not looking for a specific stat (mf/blocking/etc.) from the weapon?

    If you're not doing /players 8 all the way you shouldn't have any problems. Assassins are strong too.

    Of course you need to be careful, but that's about it. Don't rush it, enjoy it.

    I rarely use my imbues, I guess my luck isn't really there

    Good luck tho, it's a lot of fun!

    I used an imbue on a demonhide boots and a spiderweb sash. The imbued boot was my endgame item, and the belt wasn't bad either.
    I suggest waiting till finishing the hell imbue quest and then use all three at once to try making up for gaps in your equipment.

    Re: Questions about single pass, untwinked, HC play!

    I don't know why I didn't think of that; already imbued a crappy claw. I'll save NM and Hell for later, thanks!

    Minor update - I'm about halfway through A2, and managed to gamble 2 circlets of luck, and 3 rare circlets for when I need extra resists/to sell in later acts. Also shopped a 30ED/deflecting bone shield that I'm really happy about. Thinking I'll drop to p1 just for duriel, considering how crappy his drops are anyway. I could probably just tank him with some added cold resist, and have my merc poke him to death, but I haven't done normal duriel in months untwinked, so I'm hesitant. Thoughts? I have max block

    I usually drop Act bosses to /players 1 when playing untwinked, just in case. You aren't usually missing out on drops, mostly just a bit of experience.

    Definitely safe imbues. I usually use them to make up for gaps aswell. Almost always on class specifics/circlets/boots/gloves/belts.

    I always drop norm duriel to p1 even when playing twinked. Same goes for D.

    Re: Questions about single pass, untwinked, HC play!

    IMO, anything above /p3 on act bosses is a waste in single pass play. The experience bonus is negligible and the added drops don't make up for the risk of longer fights. IIRC, quest drops max out on /p3 and are only slightly better than at /p1.

    Imbuing should not be overestimated, it's just a gamble with 100% chance of rare quality and ilvl = clvl + 4.
