Was cruising youtube today and stumbled upon MrLlamaSC's video on it. Could be wicked useful for certain builds, i.e. hammerdins and cold sorcs

I saw that too. I wonder if it is possible in legit or FAM single player though. I guess time will tell :).

It is possible to replicate in vanilla. That video was made recording a vanilla gameplay. There are some other videos going around, like MacroBioBoi's. All of them made in vanilla D2.

Only useful(?) for lvl96+ leveling and I doubt the finickiness(?) really leaves it useful there...

For any MF, waves drop better than Baal usually

Yeah I think that's mostly/only big news for speedrunners. Baal waves can be quite tough with untwinked and underpowered characters.

But any twinked and/or more optimized character around here will only run Baal for XP or in some farming event, and for both uses the waves are indeed much more beneficial than Baal himself. :)

Still an interesting glitch.
