Again, sorry about inconvenience, but it had to be done and there is no other way than to use outside programs for it. It is not what vanilla players would want, but making copy and opening it in atma/gomule then erasing it is simple way of doing it and thank you for doing it.

Man, first Gripph accomplished 3x the amount of runs I did (I expect to see 3 zods in your top 5) and now Fabian is flashing around ruby freaking jewels of fervor?

I ran about 280 cow runs in about 22 hours. I started the first ~100 not picking up Rals or Ios, so my stats are going to be a little off. I was going for speed until I didn't find a zod right away and saw the stuff Gripph and Grape were posting, so I slowed it down, picked up more items, and made it more enjoyable for me. Runcounter shows my average time now as 4:20, and it might not have been that good even. I need to learn to skip smaller packs better, but if I hear a moo I must make myself a burger. I did not pick up one gem the entire time. I also ran !4 hours of Pindle and an hour of pits, so I enjoyed the ability to switch targets.

I found another 4os 3 skill mat bow, so that was a success. I found 14 total skillers. And a static small charm of shock with 2-9 damage. Dual mods, horribly low.

Thanks for hosting and for the comradery! It was a lot of fun! Results sent.

Results posted off to Frozzen. I did about 20 hours all up, ATs + Pits + Pindle + Cows. Nothing to write home about but i did enjoy the challenge.

Results sent in to the froz prince.

As for a top five: I always hate doing these. Partly because I always feel like what I put in is pretty bad, partly because I always feel bad leaving something out and partly because I normally just group finds into "interesting" and "not" and trying to delineate from there; I don't particularly enjoy it. Originally I was just going to do my MFO score for my top 5, but I do like charms and jewels seeing the big stage, so I decided to go that route instead. To that end I present to you, in no real order, some stuff.

I do love me some prefixed mfsc's (picked up a 8 stamina one as well, woot! *rolleyes*), the serpent of sustenance means I now have 2 charms at 29 combined life and mana - aka just bad enough to be irritating but too good to complain about - and the jewel had my interest piqued when I found it until I saw the integer damage bonus. Oh well, it probably still would've been worse than whatever grip's barb uses.

Run total for the Pits was 1048, in 26 hours 13 minutes. Also did 70 cow runs in 3 hours 42 minutes. That was definitely too many cow runs.

Thanks to grip for hosting and froz for supervising and to anyone who watched while I was streaming. Made it a little less of a slog, though as Fabian said CE is pretty fun and made it alot easier to put time in.

I had awesome luck with items. Many great items had to be left out.

Little explanation why I picked these:

-Tyrael's is self-evident, rarest unique in the whole game. Was a real surprise to see a second Tyrael's at all.
- CoA is one of my favorite uniques in the game. It's rare and has great stats. Absolutely awesome roll on that one
- Amber of Vita. Enough said? LR is imo the most important resistance there is, along with fire. This charm will probably appear a lot of in my future char's inventories.
- I love skillers with life. After having all the S/U items in the game, these are where the real improvement to your chars lie.
- Fine of Vita. My melee chars will fight over this charm. It's so great for them all.

Voting can begin whenever you want, guys!

How do we vote:
Top 5 items of each player are in second post of this thread. You vote for whoever you want for whatever reason. It is a good idea to give short explanation of your choice. What we choose are our top 3 players who we think found best items this Zodthon. Voting for yourself is not allowed.

First player gets 3 points from you
Second player gets 2 points

In the end we will sum all points to determine overall winner.

You may begin ^^

Thanks Gripphon for hosting, and Frozzzen for tabulating the results :)

I did not do very well, best rune was a Fal, 3.4 total points on the Zodthon-scale. I did manage to get my lightning sorc to 93, so it was fun regardless. I'm looking for Griffon's Eye for her, so I was happy to see my first lightning based rainbow facet drop.
