    You can use Java + GoMule without having it "installed". (I program without Java installed)

    If it is the browser plugin you are afraid of, Install the JVM in a VM, copy it to you normal computer and write a small batch script to start GoMule. (something like "D:\java\jre7\bin\java.exe -jar GoMule.jar")

    Versus Meph, the disadvantage of FO is that you will have to be within his spellcasting range if you want to hit him, i.e. no moat trick. It's normally not much of a problem to defeat Meph in a "honest fight", but it involves a certain death risk and the more your gear sucks, the tougher it is.

    In any case, as soon as your gear has a certain quality, I would switch to meteorb. That will improve your Meph performance a lot, as you don't have to abort them when there are too many Bloodlords near him.

    That seems to be your way of saying that you forgot to mention which monster that issue is about before I made my posting . Perhaps you were slightly offended about the word "surprise" in my posting. I assure you it wasn't directed at you, but to make fun of my own reasoning . <-- smileys added for political correctness

    I'm always using the same map with Durance 3 around the corner versus Meph as well and I never have drops of the same kind all the time. It just happens to a rack on the way to there (brandistocks 1 in 3 times, runic talons 1 in 6-10), but racks are a different matter.

    If you have a rack like that which produces an odd amount of lacquered plates (which is possible down there IIRC), you know what to do, right?

    Yeah, racks are affected by the map in every version afaik, though it's (slightly) less apparent in more recent versions.

    That's worth looking in to. Thanks. And yes, it was the broswer plug in that's the issue. Every time you update Java it would install a NEW browser plug in despite having disabled the last browser plug in.

    My use of a blizz sorc is to get right up in Mephito's face and static him down to half life (Blizz takes longer than static for the first 50%). Also, I have no problem doing a modified version of the Moat trick which involves TPing from side to side, letting Meph cast spells at me while I dodge and lob Blizz/FO's right back.

    No bloodlords near Mephisto on this Map. And Meteor is slower than a good FO so if I respec it would be to Orb-It-All and not MeteorOrb.

    No offense was taken. I did mention the mob although not in the same paragraph.

    It's not that Meph drops nothing but bows. He drops other things. It's that bows are over represented by quite a bit so the other things are underrepresented.

    I haven't touched the racks yet though maybe I should just to tell what kind they are. I pop the chests/stashes on the way to Meph as they are my current source of potential whites (the room which contains the stairs to Durance Lvl3 has 3-8 chests/stashes within telekinesis casting range). No luck on good whites but I did get a Gul rune so I'm not complaining too loudly.

    No way, people play the heck out of them these days. Ever since 1.12 when the FoH skill got a 200% boost in damage and the cooldown was removed.

    /sarcasm

    They're fun, though, I promise!

    I think you should play HC, and I think you should play MP.

    Playing D2 with Goryani, it just sounds like rediculous fun.

    I wouldn't make it out of normal playing HC. Duriel is a given but my first death is usually the underground passage.

    I checked the racks on my Mephisto map and they seem more than a little meh. I died one or more times for about a dozen straight games only to find no elites out of either rack.
