2014 RFO Sign-Up and Running Thread

Welcome to the Travincal RFO, Summer 2014. In this thread players sign-up and talk about RFO related stuff. Anyone can compete, it is not important are you HC, SC player or do you have or don't have trade profile.

What is RFO?

RFO stands for Rune-Find-Olympics. As name states, here we hunt runes, the more the better! For Um+ runes you get points and winner is player who has most points.


When is RFO?

Starts in 11th August at 00:00, ends in 24th August 11:59pm.


Rules and info

1. Area we run is Travincal, in both 1.13 and 1.07 versions. Monsters we kill are known as Council Members: 3 bosses and their 8 minions.

2. Running time is limited to 20 hours of playing (when you mule, you can pause clock/counter or whatever you use). However, when you finish your 20 hours of running, you can start a new batch of running which is again limited to 20 hours of playing. There is no limit to how many batches you can run

3. You are not allowed to start a new batch as long as you don't finish full 20 hours of previous one.

4. Each batch is scored individually. Every batch will be included in final scoring.

5. Screenshots of runes are not required, however I assume you will take screenshots of runes for trading purposes anyway + it might be cool to see some epic 1.07 drop.

6. You can combine running of 1.07 and 1.13 Travincal if you want to.

7. Cubing runes into higher ones is not allowed. In other words don't cube Pul runes into Um to get score.


Scoring

Scoring is based on rarity of the rune, so don't be surprised if lower level rune brings more points than some higher level rune. To determine points for 1.07 Travincal I used data from ATMA and compared rarity of the runes there with rarity of the runes in 1.13. I took 1.13 Mal worth as 5 points, so scoring of all other runes is based on that.

1.13 Travincal:
Mal 5.0
Um 5.1
Gul 7.1
Ist 7.5
Ohm 10.1
Vex 10.6
Sur 13.7
Lo 15.1
Jah 18.3
Ber 20.5
Cham 27.5

1.07 Travincal:
Um 13.4
Mal 17.8
Ist 26.8
Gul 35.6
Vex 53.4
Ohm 70.6
Lo 106.0
Sur 142.3
Ber 213.4
Jo 284.3
Cham 426.4

All Um+ runes you find will be scored for the final score. So, if you find 10 Um runes in 20 hours of running, your score will be 10*5.1=51.

These Olympics are fun and a great idea; an opportunity to see how the pros play D2 as well. I'm hoping to find a Ber to make my first 'Enigma' armor. Good luck to other entrants. May the wealth flow into our stashes!

Don't think I won't be cubing and picking up garbage in these runs just because it wastes my total time ;)

This is perfect. The POE expansion doesn't come out until 08/20, so I was looking for something interesting in the meantime. I'll use my Death Zealot. Definitely going to need to spend some time rerolling maps!

I'm eager to see how this goes for you guys!
That's a cool prize item. I'd be interested to see what people could do with that. 5 empty sockets on an eth unique? The possibilities are endless.

Actually.. the point of that item is the name ( Travincal's rune master )

Interestingly 'Rune Master' is also the name of a skill in Median XL, and a type of NPC in Sacred 2.

I'm in.

I'm going full GF/gambling though, so my pace will be noticeably slower than most. Hopefully I'll get a full 20 hour set, but won't have as much time for running as I did for the MFO. Good luck all.

No, I totally understand that, but it is just a bizarre item additionally. :)

What's everyone running?

I've got a sorcesses, a Barb and a Pally available and right now, I'm leaning to the Pally.

I'm going to be running my barb. Before the pindle detour, trav was his original intended destination. I've been eyeing my blizzard sorc a little, but I've yet to put together a set up I'm really happy with for trav running with her, so she'll likely sit out this one.

Wolfbarb for me. But my speeds are not fast, I didn't break 1 minute per run. I don't have enigma and probably need to up my frw. I switched harmony in for my weapon switch and it seemed to help a bit.
