    I began this ladder season with a zealer (sucked) then tried a necromancer (sucked) and then got smart, and realized that all of the fun builds are a tad bit gear-intensive, so I started reading. I've always been skeptical as to the effect of magic find in game and I believe a quick explanation of how it works is in order. Magic find does NOT change the type of item dropped. For instance, if mephisto decides to drop a cap, he's dropping that cap regardless if your magic find is 0 or 1000. Your magic find helps to determine though, if you're going to get a regular, magic, rare, set, or unique cap! So in part, magic find does exactly what it says, helps you find magic items. The profitability of this process is questionable i'm sure, but in less than 50 runs (Which are very very short) at a mf of around 300, i've found a tal's ammy, half of trangs, a hoz, shako, and two facets. The Process: Get a sorceress, they can kill meph from a screen away, have a built in nigma, and the best magic find equipment in the game is geared towards them. Do nightmare baal runs until level 75-80 In hell difficulty Beat act 1 and 2, and kill the high council, getting the durance waypoint. Join other people's games that have already killed mephisto, and kill him there. Receive quest-level drops every time you kill meph. I don't know why exactly it works, but it does, I have not seen a shitty all magic drop yet. How to kill mephisto without dying: Make a fire sorceress: Use either a hydra, fireball, or meteor build (I use meteor) Use the Rising sun amulet. (The fire absorb makes the hydras from the council heal you, even if you have -100 resists, so you can ignore them if they spawn in the middle) Teleport here: Run to here: Teleport to here: Drop spells on meph until he is dead. Finding meph is easy, if your waypoint exits to the northeast, D3 will be facing southeast Waypoint exits southeast, D3 will be facing Southwest Waypoint exits Southwest, D3 will be facing northwest Waypoint exits Northwest, D3 will be facing northeast (Go counter clockwise) And now you know, start making that FG.

    Mercury Public Event: Vex Crossroads While at first intimidating due to its size, the three steps required to completed a reasonably simple and quick, and obviously goes much faster with a compliment of other players joining you. Phase one: Seize keys from Gatekeepers to shut down the warp gates The sole public event on Mercury looks like it is two events occurring at the same time, but it's actually showing the first phase takes place across two areas at once.This first phase has you shut down four warp gates, two at either end of the patrol space. Start at one end, and find the Gatekeeper, a named enemy called 'Keeper of Ages Present'.Once it's downed, it'll drop orbs. Pick up one of these orbs, and take it to one of the two gates on the upper ledges on the outside of the raised area to dunk it. If the orbs disappear, more should spawn up the steps near the launcher.Perform this for both gates on both sides, making for a total of four gates. Phase two: Travel to the island to shut down its warp gate On both outer edges of Mercury are islands, which one of the launch pads near the above gates will take you to. When you land, it's a similar process as before - find the Gatekeeper, destroy it for orbs, and drop them into the central gate. You then take the launcher back, go to the far other side, and repeat at the second island. It should be noted it's this phase that has the Heroic requirement, which we'll discuss in more detail toward the end of this page. Phase three: Defeat the Gate Lord With the second island done, head back via the launcher and go to the central-most- area, where a towering Vex - the Gate Lord - will be waiting.This is a simple case of putting as much damage in as possible. With a handful of you it won't take long at all, and once it's downed, the event is over, giving you two treasure chests to choose from. Turning Vex Crossroads Heroic The Heroic activation comes during one very specific part of the event.When you travel to the first island as part of the second phase, you'll destroy a Gatekeeper and drop an orb in the center, before taking the launcher back to the main Mercury setting.However, when you drop the orb and before you take the launcher, a floating diamond will appear on the outer edge of the island. You must destroy this as soon as possible to trigger a platform.Leap up onto it, and two diamonds appear. Destroy these, and another platform and another set of diamonds will appear.Destroy these, and a final platform will take you to the top of the island. Stand in the middle of the plate and the Heroic version of the event will activate. Hope this helps you all guys. ill be posting more heroic Walkthrough's in time.
