    16. Friiser 3,4 Pul
    17. Pharphis (1.07) 0

    DaveW didn't run in the end, and @zemaj and @Locohead feel free to post your results.

    Someone with a working ATMA's dropcalc or something similar, could you figure us the 1.07 points for Pul so that poor @DiabloTwoinDC will get to know his score. My ATMA doesn't have the calculator.

    Also congrats NanoMist for taking over this second round, big time! Really great score :)


    Standings after two rounds:
    1. NanoMist (15 points)

    2. T72on1 (14 points)

    3. Pb_pal (13 points)

    4. maxicek (8 points)

    5. PhineasB (8 points)

    6. ffs (7 point)

    7. Locohead (4 points)

    8. drmalawi (4 points)

    9. Grape (3 points)

    10. darkstarhub (2 points)

    Wow, this time the last round will be really interesting! Really tight top three, we may even see a first round Zod or two (!!) help to a victory... and let us not forget the other three who still have little chance to the victory as well.

    And remember, the results may change still.

    Thanks all for participating and congrats on your new shiny rocks!

    Well done @NanoMist and everyone who entered.

    It’s all to play for in the top three, but I think the rest of us are fighting for the small prizes. Next round is going to be a good one.

    I just knew that @NanoMist would take it home :). Major congrats, well done !!!

    Nice to see the close race at the top. Although secretly I was hoping for even more people close to each other. But I'm sure that round 3 can still provide some big surprises. And maybe @Locohead will shake things up considerably !

    I have a very busy weekend in front of me, so my post about my second round will probably only happen on Monday.

    Ok, so my results. As evidenced above, my qualifiers were poorer than Greece, but I did get some nice new toys along the way :D The introduction video is part of my attempts at getting new members via YouTube.

    Grats @NanoMist, very nice haul!

    Didn't think I'd make 3rd place, considering I placed 2nd last year for Travincal with almost 20 more points than this time around, but hey I'm not complaining. ;) If it wasn't for the Cham, this would have been quite disastrous RNG again though, with no Sur-Ber-Jah drop at all.

    Haul Pic:

    1_haul.png

    The Cham ended a ~5 hour drought from about the 9h to 14h mark, during which nothing above Um dropped. Before and after, HRs were rather evenly distributed, with Vex, Lo and Ohm dropping within the first 10h and Cham, Ohm, Ist and two Guls in the second half. Posted her non-qualifiers in the running thread already (in particular a couple of nice rings and charms).

    Some data:

    Qualifiers total: 22 (1.1 per hour)
    Rals: 54
    Sols: 43
    Flawless Amethysts: 137 (mostly didn't bother with rubies)
    Facets: 8 (every element, quite average with no 5/5 and no 3/3)
    Skillers: 8 (none with life)
    S&U rings and amulets: No idea since I didn't stash most of the trash ones. Kept 42 (including 2x SoJ, 2x Wisp, 2x HLW, 2x Tal's ammy)

    No idea about average run time as run counter doesn't work reliably for me currently. I'd guess the average was in the 19-20s range. When playing with full effort and concentration she was able to consistently get sub 19s (fastest I got was ~18.1s in this vid, but in several tries didn't get below 18s, with the exception of individual runs). Overall I'm happy with her efficiency. In terms of qualifiers per hour she did great, similarly to my Javazon for round 1, with the difference of running 20h with a more optimized build this time. :p I fooled around with Lightning Sorc a bit and got a Ber literally a couple of hours before round 2 started, but then ran the whole set with the Blizzy since she was still a little faster. I think Lightning Sorc can deliver very good times as well though, and might try to improve her at some point.

    Thanks for hosting @Grape, last round will be great as well I'm sure!

    Grats @everyone on their finds, looking forward to see what you'll be doing with them. :)

    Congrats to @NanoMist – so close to 100 pts, but also very hard to improve that score. Thanks also to @Grape (again) for hosting; it was quite fun. The last round will be much fun, with such a close race for the top spot to follow.

    @Shuffleblast – nice Preserver’s skiller, but I think I have one up on you there! :D

    As for my round, I am pleased with the drops and finally placing higher than 8th in one of these types of competitions. But definitely surprised with overall placement, based on past rounds. Anyhow, I’ll take it!

    Summary of non-qualifiers is here, so I’ll focus on the qualifiers. But first things first, here’s a haul pic:
    RFL 2018 Rd 2 (Haul Pic).jpg
    Things started off hot just like Round 1, with Sur #1 dropping in first 5 minutes. In contrast to Round 1, that was thankfully not the best drop of the set. But it was immediately followed by a 3:30 dry stretch with no qualifiers.

    Ist #1 dropped to break the drought, followed shortly by Pul #1 and Vex #1. After almost two hours, things got very solid, with Vex #2, Ohm, and Sur #2 dropping (in relatively quick succession) before we were 7:30 into the set.

    So we had 5 10+ pt qualifiers with more than 3/5 of the set to go. Then within 30 minutes, Ber #1 made its appearance, which was shaping up to be solid indeed. Pul #2 and Mal #1 dropped before Ber #2 fell at the 11:20 mark.

    I was hoping for one more Sur+ drop to break the 80-point barrier, but, sadly, there was no improvement over the last 8:40 of the set. But we did pick up Ist #2, Mal #2, Um #1, Mal #3, Um #2, Mal #4 and Ist #3.

    In total, 18 qualifiers with 7 10+ pointers was very solid, and I am quite pleased. :) It was (I think) a bit under expectations on total qualifiers (with estimated 23s average), but I’m only a Jah and Sur short of my goal of getting runes for Last Wish through the RFL. And it would 159.2 for RFO format.

    My sorc had three deaths during the process, which was annoying. Two to not having cast BO and misclicking on teleport path to land right in the middle of amp’ed fanaticism, and one to thinking I’d hit pause to answer the doorbell. :rolleyes: So she didn’t get as much XP progress as I’d hoped to lvl 95, but that’s what RFL 2019 is for!

    Quick rundown of qualifiers by time during the set is in the spoiler.
    Code:
    Sur - 0:05
    Ist - 3:35
    Pul - 3:55
    Vex - 4:05
    Vex - 5:50
    Ohm - 6:10
    Sur - 7:25
    Ber - 7:50
    Pul - 8:30
    Mal - 10:25
    Ber - 11:20
    Ist - 11:25
    Mal-  11:50
    Um -  13:15
    Mal - 16:20
    Um -  17:45
    Mal - 18:15
    Ist - 19:10
    I'm looking forward to Round 3; I will be going with untwinked pally for one set, and hoping to finish a second set with whatever is left for him to hit level 98 and then transitioning to my untwinked poisonmancer in the Pit.

    Around the 4 hour mark, I had already found what would be 4 out of my 5 top runes. Rather lucky to start off with such great drops. Even that 1000 run drought between qualifiers did little to dampen the mood, and the Jah rune shortly after the drought solidified my top 5. Then came the steady stream of pul-um-mal to pad a would be RFO score to 153.4.

    Wow, nice set @NanoMist and especially that first four hours :eek:

    But I hereby declare that this should have been an RFO (unless the RFO score for @ffs would have beaten mine, in which case I don't care either way :p)!

    I am thinking I should have finished leveling up my other Sorc to run Trav with a Blizzard build. Of course, a respec of my 99er would have worked as well. I had a good map, and for the most part FO/FB worked pretty well, but when the council was under Fanaticism or Conviction my Merc died instantly. Due to work and some other stuff I was only able to get about 6-7 hours of sporadic running so my haul pic would suck and does suck compared to some of the above. But, I did find this, which is my second one ever, and kinda makes up for the lack of finding a Cham.

    Screenshot377.jpg

    And this little sucker, that will get put to use at some point.

    Screenshot375.jpg

    I had alot of fun running the council for round 2 though, and I am definitely going to finish leveling my other Sorc and make her a straight up Blizz Sorc for running Trav and AT. Things would have went better had I used some of the valuable info from these very forum pages and geared a little different and made my moron an Infinity. If only I could be as tight with my money as I am my High Runes ;)

    Assuming 20 sec runs with a blizz sorc and infinity merc, I simulated councils drops and picked the top five scoring runes, this was repeated 1000 times. Furthermore, assuming the score followed a Gaussian distribution, the average score for such 20h/20s batch would be 77 points with a standard deviation of 16,5 points.

    We can therefore see that nanomist is slightly above 1 std from avg, which means that he was "pretty lucky" whereas the other top 4 runners were very close to the expected avg score.

    @zemaj don't throw in the towel! Considering your bad luck thus far only means that you will hit jackpot in round three!

    @PhineasB my RFO score is 154.3. Not even that great I suppose despite the high number of qualifiers, but yeah I guess only one rune higher than Lo hurts the score either way. I expect at least your Pestilence-level RNG in Pits to make up for the first two RFL rounds! ;)

    @PhineasB most impressive.

    I was wondering if I could have improved my score had I ran the full 20 hours..
