    Will run javazon for cows since that's what I'm used to, and I already have one (I'll have to level and gear her better though.) Not sure yet what I will do after that, but it will somehow involve getting my L94 sorc to L95 (that will be my main motivation to play.)

    @drmalawi You are allowed to do both levels. Iirc drops from the superchest in AT and the one at Pits lvl 2 aren't allowed.

    Is it poor form to spend the first (half) hour of a set picking up Wirt's leg(s) with a very efficient character and then just going straight to Moo Moo with stashed Wirt's leg from Rogue Camp in successive runs? I actually think it would be more efficient because I generally need to go to GoMule to offload bases, etc. after each Cow run, so loading a Wirt's leg at the same time would be pretty easy. And my Sorc is very quick to get the leg, while the Sin and Zon are less so.

    I'm not in charge, but my feeling is that each 20-hour set would have to be exclusive to a single character.

    I do believe this will be an excellent opportunity for my Fishyzon to get some time out of the garage for the Cow level. I just wish the game was as giving with Jav Skillers as it has been with Bow skillers. I've only found 2 Harpoonists GC's vs. about 10 Fletchers. Since MF doesnt help with Runes, I am gonna juice the ol' girl up for this.

    Well, I think that Grape said earlier that you can use multiple characters in a batch, so leg farming sounds ok, if not a tad coated in Brie.

    That would be lame to abuse for faster legs. TBH I think it's bad enough people are allowed to start new 20-hour segments and use the best of each. We'll see what he says, I might not even be that interested in putting this much time into D2 anyway.

    It's an interesting question, don't think anyone did it last year. Personally I won't do it anyway as for me it would be way too annoying having to go to GoMule after every run (I just empty my in-game stash maybe every 10 runs or so). Not sure it's actually advantageous either, saving some ~5s in getting leg vs being forced to spend that time in GoMule instead... haven't timed "getting leg" times so far though, so depends I guess. ;)

    Surely as long as leg collecting is done in the 20h it doesn’t matter? @Grape to call it though.

    The way I see it, from efficiency it isn’t worth it.
    • Every time you collect a leg, you have to mule it.
    • Every time you add a leg you have to mule it.

    Let’s say (wild guess) 5 seconds quickest to mule each time? You would have to be 10s slower per run with the running character to make it worthwhile.

    What about tomes too? Do they need to be shopped in the 20h?

    I dont know, but 20h over 3 weeks is quite much. You have to be REALLY dedicated to pull off two, or more, whole 20h segments over this period of time :O

    Agreed. I don't think many people will do more than one batch for each leg of the RFL.

    As to collecting legs with one char, run cows with another ... I agree with @Kitteh here. It seems to be within' the rules, albeit somewhat cheesy. Since timing muling doesn't count towards the 20 hours, it should be more efficient. I don't see myself doing it though. Too much of a hassle.

    20hours is about 3-400 runs, too much muling for my taste :)

    HYPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I doubt I'll have my Nova necro ready for cows, so I'll probably do what I did last year and run a combo of Javazon and my SC Fissure druid. Big props to Grape for hosting again and I like all the changes to this year's contest. :)

    Last year I wasn't able to finish the last round of the tournament, which was Cows. This time I'd like to get the full 20 hours of solid running. I appreciate the new rule of 3 weeks per round, makes it much easier for me to get to the finish line.

    Not sure what characters I'm gonna run with, yet. Fireball or Nova Sorc possibly. Poison/Summon-hybrid Necro is an option. And there's always the Javazon. Time to do some testing I guess, haven't done Cow runs in ages.

    Definitely running Javazon for Cows. Probably Blizz sorc for Trav and up in the air for areas. Maybe Blizz sorc again. I'm still leveling up my characters.

    You will be able to run any area you like, with as many characters you like :)

    I'll re-visit the areas round-specific rules later, and see should we change anything, but many characters / areas within one batch will be allowed, that's guaranteed.

    As long as this leg farming would happen within the 20 hours, I have no intention to ban such thing.

    Sounds irritating enough to mule that much, that I won't do this myself :p

    You may change your characters as much as you like within one batch.

    It was very fruitful last time, for example we got lots of data from many different builds running cows.

    This also prevents boredom and I suspect we may see more batches near the 20 hours because they don't have to stick with one character for full 20 hours :)
