    Best Pit Drops

    Like the title says. What was your best Pit Drop? I just started running the Pit and the best I've found so far is Hellforged Plate. Looked cool but I couldn't wear it (low strength only 170)so I sold it to Charsi. Has anyone actually found a Zod there or Tyreals Might? You get the idea. Since you can supposedly get almost any drop there what's your highest?

    In the beginnig of ladder1 i did alot of pits..and i mean ALOT, but it payed off, and here are some of the things i remember finding there :

    Ohm
    Ist
    14% eth BA
    2 x soj
    2 x mara's (one perfect)
    HoZ
    Death's web (never got to id it..lost couse of r/d)
    Windforce (it was still popular back then :D )

    So it was worth the time..but it takes alot of patience though, since sometimes you can run it like 100+times without finding even one crappy unique

    i do pits all the time and yes you can find every item in tha area but them ones that you can only find in specific areas, like annihilus from diablo clone witch needs to spawn on a super unique monster witch non are in the pit, and th cow king set witch you only find in the cow lvl. other then this you can find everything.

    items i mhave found in the pits

    asterons, griffons eye, deaths fathom, shadow dancers, corwn of ages, darkforce spawn, and many other less rare uniques

    so yes it worth it and if you run with say 300ish mf you shouldnt have any trouble finding these higher more rare uniques, it really just a matter of time and luck. dont give up if you do 10 or 50 runs and find nothing, you will get your day

    Wouldn't it be better to find this stuff on Hell Baal runs with a hammerdin or a Bone Necro or something?

    FYI Mercurus, all that stuff can be found in Nightmare and Normal. I'd recommend getting ATMA for its drop calculator. You'd be surprised what some of the optimal MF bosses are for certain items.

    The Pit is an area located in Act 1 Tamoe highlands. You can reach it by taking the Outer Cloister waypoint and following the road it'll branch off. One branch will lead to the Black Marsh and the other will lead to the Pit ( a hole in the ground). In normal and nightmare you won't find much but in Hell difficulty you can find all sorts of stuff in The Pit.

    Plus it's an easy place to MF. Monsters are easy (and lots of them too for more drops) and you can run it at high player settings with less difficulty. Great XP up to ~ 90/91 or so but after that you're better off doing WSK Baal runs.

    I've found many things:

    Homunculus
    Leviathanx2
    IK Soul Cage
    Templar's Might
    ....

    Ive found some nice superior archons that I made into 4 soc for COH as well as an arachnids mesh. I agree totally with the leveling, its a great palce to level a 80-90 character.

    i believe tyraels might can only be dropped by nihlatuk/baal/pindle...

    but my best drop was only an aldurs armor = (

    baal can drop tyreals, nihlathak can drop it but pindleskin cant. tyreals comes from TC 87 and has a qlvl of 87 meaning the monster droping it must drop from tc 87 and be at least lvl 87, pindle is lvl 86. monsters in "the pit" act 1 are lvls 85 for normal 87 for the champs and 88 for the uniuqes and all drop tc 87, this makes tyreals might able to dop in that area and many others, few areas in each act meet this criteria(hell only mind you)

    I still pit run with my lev 92 barb, he's got about 225mf and I find all sorts of stuff. Within the last month:
    2x shako
    ik armor
    talrashas armor
    2x vex
    2x mal
    2x ist
    lots of real nice soc items incl eth 5soc colussus blade

    Im still fairly happy with the exp gain as well. When you consider that your in and out in approx 5 minutes, with minimal danger and above average mf, I prefer pit runs to Baal runs. The problem I have with Baal runs (talkin about hardcore here), its hard to get on good runs, they take longer and are more dangerous (unless u got someone to tele), I "never" seem to get the drops and someone is always trying to pk!

    Obviously Baal runs would be a lot more appealing if you were doing with people you knew, is there a channel where people meet to do baal runs by any chance?
