    Grrrr, its never fair

    I spend an hour and a half working my way to hell baal to solo him for my quest. I die about 10 times getting there, a couple of times on the minions, and a couple of times while I was in my MF gear at the very end killing off the last 15 pixels of his life. What do I get? Rare breast plate, magic battle staff, unique blade, unique sabre. DOH! I dont even get repair costs back lol.

    I'm going to bed.

    In my past 100 or so runs I picked up literally three uniques from hell Baal with about 350 MF - a Ripsaw, a Patriarch, and an Andariel's Visage. I didn't even get much out of the last one as my merc quickly equipped it.

    It's all about joining baal runs with a smiter, staying until everyone leaves, then have a little 1v1 with the Lord of Destruction. :D

    Would've gotten a shako a few days ago if someone else didn't go with me and wait until I killed baal just to steal my drops... :(

    It annoys me to no end when they stand off screen until he reaches the last bit of his health and then run in..

    My sorc can solo him in about 5 minutes. Sometimes I get those drops too and it just makes you angry. I can't complain though, I've gotten 3 shakos and more from mfing the past couple days. I don't even do that many runs a day.

    well with one of my pats I went to solo Baal just to do it and getting to him wasnt much of a problem I only died once from a undead stygian doll when it died and then when I killed Baal after like 10 minutes of smacking on him here is what I get,magic helm,magic short sword,rare boots,bolts,healing pot,mana pot,ok I may not have much MF but come on you could have at least dropped one set or unique item.


    btw-Haseen!thats the name of my friend's assassin's merc.

    I solo Baal with my Bliz sorc on East SCL. Over the last few days I've got perfect Andy's, perfect Kiras, a 4% BK ring, and lots of crappy Ormus robes. :lol: This is with a little over 700% mf though..

    I hate to tell you this but that is exactly, precisely, totally how MF works. Without MF those would probably have been non-magic items.

    lol, I had no idea my frustration would spark debate or even comiseration. I was just in a pisser of a mood last night because I spend so much time and effort to get my quest and got squat for it.

    To be fair though, I had an AWSOME hell forge drop (Gul) so I guess the game was making up for it. I got an Ith in NM lol.

    Oh well, I will probably be able to better against him if I can ever get ahold of a highlords ammy, some gores, and a Zac shield (although, my ancients pledge is working very well for me so far, massive resists which I love)
