Well that explains it!

I thought your rings were flat magic rings with only MF. Colour me impressed. I can certainly see calling those the best items you own :)

Those rings are absurd. Can I get one with 10 FCR please? Are they from 1.07 and who made them?

Here is my haul pic, even though it looks kinda pitiful compared to Fabians :p


That's 32 hours and 1400 runs worth. Not too bad for the effort I'd say.

Off the top of my head they look really good.

I might post a haul pic if I can bring myself to gather the appropriate items. There were 60+ so it'll be tough. . .

Sorry I didn't get to finish out my runs, been in and out of hospital and didn't get to do anything further after the update I sent last week. At least I got a couple of grailers in the few runs I did manage to do... Looking forward to the next one when I can put in more of a showing!

And congrats to all the winners! If any of the winners in Baal want to look over my haul to take some itamz (1.13d HC FAM) PM me and I'll send you a stash readout.

Guys seriously? 100+ Hours/ 10 days?
did you heard about RL? When you will be older, it will come to you
I would like to play like you too (not so much exactly but at least half of Fabian), because running level 85 areas make me happy but I just do not have time for it anymore, it is pitty
btw. I am curious, how old are you guys? Griphon, Frozzen, Fabian, Nagisa, ....
I would like to know how old you should be to be in top form in D2 :)
maybe it is for another thread but I am only curious

@fabian:

sick effort.

I was wondering - do you ever die with him? I've seen a couple of vids with telezerkers so far, and they look quite risky to play. I would imagine even more so, if you play the amount you do in such a short time and with such great focus on speed.

This was amazing to follow! So much dedication!

GZ to all the winners :)

Btw, where do you get those numbers? Is it based on rarity "only"? Or something else aswell?

kestegs, they're 1.07 crafts yeah, WoRG is the creator.

bassano, well this was my one big Diablo goal I've been wanting to do for a long time, and it's not something I could (or would) do every week heh. Obviously I made some sacrifices to have that type of free time for 10 days; I missed my first week of classes and have spent the last two days trying to catch up. Totally worth it :)

Fred, I didn't keep track or anything, but I would guess I died maybe 20-30 times in the MFO. He's definitely not built with safety in mind at all.

All,

Because I like numbers, I just spent a fun hour calculating drop chances and probabilities and stuff for various things, and thought people might be interested, so I'll share:

With the numbers I'm assuming (which is 8.2 boss packs per run, 20% of which are champions, and 64.5s runs), over 106 hours this MFO:

I found 63 9.3+ qualifiers, expected average is ~51 (5.6%)

I found 6 of the seven "big ones" (Death's Fathom, Stormlash, Darkforce Spawn, Astreon's Iron Ward, Mang Song's Lesson, Death's Web, Tyrael's Might), expected average is ~5.3 (43.7%)

I found 2 27.x pointers, expected average is ~2.3 (67.7%)

The percentages in parentheses represent how many times I would expect to do as well or better, in the respective "categories", in the long run. As you can see, I got very lucky with the total amount of haul pic items, whereas I was pretty close to the expected value when it comes to the top-end stuff. The chance of finding three or more 27.x pointers is 41.3% for example, not exactly an earth shatteringly low number.

(note: I ignored the two set items (Griswold's Redemption and Griswold's Honor) in the above calculation, as their drop chances in ATMA looked fishy to me, and I didn't want to mess with it, so the above is for the Unique items only)

Not sure i wanna know that. Very afraid i'll find out my best D2 years are already behind me. :D

@Fabian
Thanks! I'm also curious on what amount of MF you guys are using and what versions you are playing? Is everyone on 1.13c/d?

Yeah, It is clear for me that MFO is special week, I myself did it just several times, not in scale like you but enough for me
and btw. thanks for that numbers, I was curious how many packs average are players usually killing during one run(I did my statistic in AT, pit and WSK), that is very interesting number for me (due to time efficiency, number drop/min is most important) same as your statistic of high level unique drops I calculated, that you did aproximatelly 5,7k pits so that is just statistically significant amount of data and it is number that I really did not expected so grats for that, I am really admiring that

congratulations Fabian_

nothing more than what I expected of you :)
does this mean you are "done" with d2?
 

Fabian

Diabloii.Net Member
thanks jimsfriend

I was sorry you weren't in the team channel like in the old days though <3

I'm not quitting the game, no. I might go back to rarely playing it though, who knows. I do want to try and beat my Piles of Money record, so that's probably happening at some point.

@bassano: I didn't test it extensively (< 100 runs), but I get about 7.5 bosspacks on my map, and it takes about 55-60 seconds per run. The run counter is probably a bit off due to starting at level 73. :badteeth:

I think Fabian is a little more efficient on his crazy map, which makes me a bit sad. :p

Not nearly as impressive as the lvl 85 haulpics, but here's mine. In it are finds worth 13 points or more.

Just realized I never actually said, but I won't be looting anyone...and I doubt anyone wants anything from my alvl85 drops, but if so, let me know.

HUGE congrats to everyone, but especially Fabian!! AWESOME performance, dude! Glad I was able to help with his gear! :D

Glad I was able to do my part for the team...(even if it was almost completely luck, I didn't run nearly as much as many others :p )

WoRG, thanks a lot :)

Nagisa, I'd like your Crown of Ages please.

zgpmf, I'd like the better rolled of your Stormlashes please.

Ok, just a remainder, it's a HC item.

And, yep, it's (almost(actually not even close)) perfect:
Code:
Stormlash 
Scourge

Durability: 58 of 65 
Required Level: 82 
Required Strength: 125 
Required Dexterity: 77 
Fingerprint: 0xef7936e0 
Item Level: **

Unidentified 
15% Chance to cast level 10 Static Field on striking

For the record, Shadowdancers are crap rolls, one of them is ethereal.

And one more interesting thing, both Darkforce Spawn's have ilvl=85.
