    My two sets in vids ! On the second one you'll clearly see i was really close to miss the Jah on my Enigmatic run (you may jump to 2'30 to see how it happened) !

    That's amazing! I thought it is was going to be a "lost in the clutter" thing. Always worth the time to back track I suppose.

    Wow, congrats everyone, and especially to @WoRG on that crazy score! That’s also an amazing collective runehaul for the SPF :eek:

    I ran with my untwinked zon, hoping for Sur/Ber to complete CoH for the Merc. So she was undergeared compared to the twinked zon. I also didn’t complete the full set (only 15 hours), so I wasn’t expecting anything great. But even so, the RNG was rough, with only three qualifiers, and the timing of the drops making it feel worse :rolleyes:

    She was averaging a little under 4:30 per run (including repairing her only Titans) over the first ten hours. Efficiency dropped, likely close to 5:00 per run, over the last five hours. Thankfully, she picked up a Vex and skiller (her second) during warmups. Then the Jah fell within first 30 minutes, the Mal fell about two hours later, then almost 7.5 hours of nothing until the Um fell 10 minutes shy of 10 hours (and no really useful nonqualifiers either). I mainly focused on my untwinked necro at that point, but managed another 5 hours as breaks from Pit runs, with no further qualifiers. The only Ko+ drop over that last stretch was a Lem.

    Other drops were okay, with 2 TC3s (Bane Ash and The Gnasher), two Cow King’s Leathers, Tal’s armor, Lightning Ormus, [email protected] Mara’s, a Ravenfrost upgrade (203/20 vs. 188/18), and a second Titan’s. She got 10 skillers, with the only useful one a Sounding of Sustenance (22). A few useful jewels and charms are in the spoiler.

    I ran two batches with Trapper and PNova-based CE Necro. Necro felt really frail after running Trapper, but is a bit faster. I think Necro died 5 times vs Trapper's 0 times. I submitted my Necro's score of 78.8, but the Trapper didn't do too bad either with a score of 75.0.

    *Cows per run calculated using combined SC + GC + Jewel rarity values. Not sure how many drops were missed and how much it's underestimated. I can't imagine more than 5% or so.

    I also added in the aggregate ilvl% to look at the boss pack percentage breakdown. I think the drop rates are different for bosses, so there should be an adjustment made there. German drop calc is down, and I don't care enough about this stat to do the manual calc..

    Very nice non-qualifiers overall people! Some pretty juice +life skillers, and @NanoMist wow, two RJoFs within 40 hours. Took me few years to find the second one for my eth TR :p

    Here's my haul shot:

    RestartJah1.jpg

    Yup, that's it (Ok, I've already stashed away the Pul and Gul).

    I think the saddest thing for me was shortly after I finished my set, I went to LK and in the first hour found Ber, Gul, Pul (and I picked up an Ith); beating my cow score in just an hour (granted a lucky hour).

    Together, I did make this which should help a fair bit in the next round. Check out that roll, happily I made it at the same time as the Infinity and HotO and the were both a little above average.

    Code:
    Enigma
    Light Plate

    +2 to All Skills
    +45% Faster Run/Walk
    +1 to Teleport
    +750 Defense
    +45 to Strength (Based on Character Level)
    Increase Maximum Life 5%
    Damage Reduced by 8%
    +14 Life after each Kill
    15% Damage Taken Goes To Mana
    61% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items (Based on Character Level) 3 Sockets (3 used)
    
    Right now its being put to great use on my Pnecro's merc. (Yes, merc, he needed the +Str for my GPA Infinity. But only for one more level).

    Nooooo 9th, again! Was I at least the top hc'er? *shakes hoto at anyone below max resists and 3k hp*

    Kali RFL19 cows.jpg

    I was looking for jahs and los (and maybe a zod or two) for my barb's grief & enigma... oh well. At least the rolls turned out alright!
    cta.jpg coh.jpg

    As far as cowrunning goes, I think I need a phoenix on my cta switch instead of spirit. I'd lose some hp and mana, but not having to chug potions all the time would probably speed it up by quite a bit. I just need a lo and a jah first (ahhhh).

    What an amazing result of our winner. Major congrats @WoRG !!! Looking forward to hear about your round.

    As for myself, overall I'm pleased with my batch. I found 17 qualifiers, which is really decent given my run times. Also split out quite even throughout the set, so I constantly had the feeling something was happening, and something could happen to get me into top 5. Alas, in the end quality was lacking to get there. I knew I needed at least a Jah and most likely Ber+ to get into that top 5. Ironically I found 5x Pul this time around. Last year I found none of those.

    I set myself a few goals, and reached some of them: I had fun and I improved on my run times. Unfortunately I didn't get the goal of finding Jah runes. A few days ago I checked which runes I still need to finish my rune grail, and it turns out I have most runes already in my stash, but still need about 7 Jah runes. So they are definitely top priority. Hopefully next time.

    Pics of my rune haul and top 5 drops:

    Tight scores in the top 5 btw. The race for overall victory will be so close this year, I'm sure !!!

    I ran all 20h with a Necro. I was slow, but didn't want to get too stressed by not running efficiently. It is more important for me to enjoy the playing and actually finish the set.

    19 Sol
    26 Ral
    36 Ort
    2 Pul
    Um
    Mal
    Gul
    Ohm
    Cham

    The Cham was almost left on the ground. It must have dropped in one of the first groups I killed and I didn't notice it. It was in my first hour and I was still getting into the it, so I went to pick up the Full Rejuv as I was running low. And there it was sat on the ground. Of course almost missing this led to paranoia and slowed my runs even further.

    The Nazgul Cham.jpg

    Then I went about another eight hours with nothing except seemingly endless Thuls & Tals. I had an hour when I got 2x Pul, Um & Gul just before the halfway point. Ohm dropped around 12 hours, Mal about 15. Then nothing for the rest.

    Good job everyone! Congrats to WoRG for finally getting 1.07 to the top spot! It is always fun to read through these elaborate results threads, and once again it did not disappoint.

    And Gripph, sorry your taste in music nose dived after the necro video. Hopefully you can get it back.

    I have to admit that, even though I find his choice of music questionable for the most part, I actually liked the song he used in the necro vid and listened to it for a good part of my runs.

    I rarely use the word, but this thread is just pure hype. Screens filled with orange high runes. Sexy, really.

    First off, wow! I'm so excited and shocked to have been able to do so well in my first RFL round ever! Top 10 was my original realistic goal. And top 5 became a goal once I dropped 2 HRs. My post may be a bit sparse on details, as I am not 100% clear on all the details and most of it was viewed through the advancement of my untwinked 99er, Devi! I posted a huge update for her just now if you want to read that. But here's the RFL details:
    - 4 pul, 2 um, 1 gul, 1 mal, 2 ist, 1 sur, 1 jah, 1 ber
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    - I ran primarily p3 for the first 18 hours... before I had infinity ;)
    - For the last two hours, I ran p5
    - I averaged 5 min runs for the first third of the round, but @Luhkoh's drive to get better times made me do the same
    - So, I averaged about 4 min runs until I made infinity, after which, I averaged about 3:40
    - I found smaller qualifiers throughout, without any large dry spells.
    - My ber was in between 3 and 7 hours at some point.
    - My sur was at like 14 or 15 hours
    - I stopped at 18 hours in order to farm another sur at LK in order to try and make infinity to use in order to improve my score.
    - I ended up getting the sur, so I took a haul pic in case I didn't find anything else (aka, it's noticeably missing my jah and a pul, which I found both after I took the pic in the last 2 hours of my set.)
    [​IMG]
    - The jah dropped ON THE FIRST RUN with my infinity

    Non rune finds were honestly more than I could ask for:
    - 14% ed 4 os wyrmhide
    - 4os +3bow mat bow
    - 2, 3, and 4 os ebug armors with 1k+ defense
    - eth CV which I larzuked for the infinity base
    - bk ring
    - raven frost ring
    - steel grand charm of vita
    - all three pieces of cow kings set
    - but the rarest thing I found was this treat. 1:200k from unique cow or 1:4million from normal cow:

    Thanks for the congrats, everyone! I was pretty sure I was gonna take this round once the Lo dropped, but with others playing in 1.07, there was always a chance... a single Cham in 1.07 would have totally eclipsed my score, and RNG is RNG

    I ran with my javazon, who is entirely OP in 1.07...ALL bolts from lightning fury carry full jav damage and effects like CB, leech, critical strike, and CtC...and I gunned down stragglers with Multishot (which is also OP, as all arrows carry all effects, and CB is not reduced for missile weapons!) Since they were typically cursed (my javs have 5% CtC lvl1 Amp, and my ammy has 3% CtC lvl5 Amp, add in piercing and the AoE nature of the curse, and usually survivors were Amped), it generally only took a few quick sprays to finish them off. Since I had already killed Elvis, I didn't hesitate to kill him every time, so I was pretty much doing full clears (I didn't chase down stragglers, but really never had to, multishot has at least a couple screens of range...)

    Running at p7 was no problem...at least, not for my runner. One of my computers tends to lose connection if there's too much desync...and 1.07 LF is a recipe for desync, so about half the time it was only p6, though I kept 3 partied toons in level to leech XP and effectively keep the drops at p8 :D

    The desync and graphical glitches from LF, coupled with the rushy nature of timed runs, did lead to a LOT of deaths, a full dozen during the course of running...this is a LOT for me, and I didn't care for that aspect of it at all. Nonetheless, I did level her from 82 at the start to almost lvl 90 by the end, and the leechers went from lvl53 to lvl81!

    My runs averaged a rather slowish 5½ minutes, but I did full(ish) clears, killed Elvis, and popped most poppables, which most people don't do... I ran with rather a lot of MF for a runefinding tourney, in an effort to get as much of the junk as possible to be blue instead of white (remember, 1.07 runes aren't colored, they're white, so reducing the white clutter helps them stand out a bit...). I only picked runes, flawless gems (all sapphires, emeralds, and topazes, maybe rubies), jewels, jewelry, and charms, and I kept a good bit of inventory open (4x4, plus the full cube), so I almost never had to hit town during a run. I also checked circlets if it didn't mean playing tetris, and occasionally kept one ;)

    quite simple, its 1.07 so there are no synergies...
    20 Lightning Fury
    20 Pierce
    10ish Multishot
    1+ in prereqs
    Rest as you see fit...I put 12 points in Critical Strike (67% after +skills), a point in jab, and a few in penetrate...you could put more in Multishot, and probably should for a dedicated cow runner, but mana costs rise per level and at some point you're spraying out enuff arrows...I currently have 30 unspent skill points on her:p

    G-Face (24ed/IAS jewel)
    Prismatic Saracen's (50F/47L/39C/57P) I LOVE this amulet!!
    Skullder's (24ed/IAS jewel)
    Crafted Blood Gloves (15CB/20IAS/6LL/25MF)
    Rare MPK ring (15MPK, 6LL, 24MF)
    Ravenfrost
    Mav's belt (40FRW, 15ML)
    Crafted Caster Boots (40FRW, 35MF)
    Crafted Blood Mat Javs (Fool's, 345ed, 6LL, 40IAS, CtC Amp, +2 J&S)
    Crafted Caster Luna (+35block, [email protected]) 2xPDiamond
    Crafted Safety Mat Bow (14PDR, 10MDR, 352ed, +38max, +2 B&C, +ar/ed Demons, +AR/ed Undead)

    Charms were 1 Jav skiller, resists, life, mana, and another 15FRW for a total of 95...she may not have teleport, but she is quite speedy!

    I actually got six(!) qualifiers during my runs...I got Puls on back-to-back runs right around the end of my first hour of running, then got an Um about 2½hrs in. About 5 hrs later, I got another Um, and I realized that I already had almost a hundred points, which took the pressure off a bit...non-qualifier drops were pretty good throughout my runs, which helped keep motivation up. It was around the 12hr mark that the Lo dropped...I actually almost missed it! On that run, either I used a lot more javs than usual, or I forgot to repair before starting the run, but about halfway through, I got the low ammo warning (I normally don't run low until the very end of a run, if at all). I popped a portal to go repair, but repairing these javs is quite expensive, and I had seen a couple blue shakos drop a couple screens back, which would help quite a bit with the cost...when I went back to grab them I saw the Lo! (I'm pretty sure it dropped just off screen before, as it wasn't covered with other stuff, it was off to the edge of a loot pile...) I was pretty psyched by the Lo, but after that rune drops fell off hard, not even any crafting runes, just mounds of El runes, until the last couple hours they picked back up, culminating in the Ist drop on my second to last run! When I tallied up my score, I discovered I had gotten a year's worth of points at a point a day :p

    I hadn't realized people wanted haul pics, so I had to fetch her runes from a stash...and I couldn't resist a tip o' the hat to our host @Grape, who reminded me to look for this with his pat thread for Spiked...I think its cool that personalized items in 1.07 get orange text, so I have some sexy orange in my haulpic too, even if my runes are white! :cool:

    The Lo rune will almost certainly gather e-dust in a 1.07 stash...I don't want to forward it to a modern patch, where it is merely part of a Grief runeset (apparently widely considered easier to get than the 5os phase blade that is the preferred base). Maybe one of these days I'll craft a godly weapon for a character that really needs some deadly strike...

    WoRG (who now has the coolest alliterative item) :p

    We went almost 17 hours before dropping a single qualifier. But found all kinds of nice skillers, small charms, and socketables. About half the time was spent with the Amazon, the rest was pretty evenly distributed between the Necromancer, Druid, and Sorceress.

    Skillers were: Javelin 27 life, 2 x Necro Summoner, B Combat, Sorc Cold, Offensive Auras 1-2 Cold damage

    Best small charms: 10 Lightning Res 7 mf SC, 5% FHR 11 Lightning Res SC, and a bunch of +3 damage SCs with various mods.

    Best socketables: Eth Thresher which rolled 4os, A Lot of white Armour bases (4 x eth elite 0os) and Monarchs, one of which was superior 15 ed

    Grailers: Rune Master

    In the fading hours we dropped our first qualifier:

    2 Runs later we found our second, pretty much in the same spot as the first:
    Screenshot085.jpg

    The last qualifier came on the second to last run:
    Screenshot095.jpg

    Overall pretty happy with the results. I knew I didn't have the most effective characters for this going in since I didn't want to respec, and I was okay with that. Run times sometimes crept close to 10 minutes since I gather a lot of junk, and very rarely they dropped below 5 minutes.

    This was my first participation in a Single Player Tournament, and I had a lot of fun seeing everyone's drops and strategies. I'm glad so many people are still playing this game after so many years.

    Thanks for having me here, and thanks to Grape for setting this up!

    So this was my first time doing dedicated cow runs, ever. It was also my first time doing runs with a teleporting Amazon (who only had 38 FCR). Needless to say, it took a lot of getting used to and I had about a dozen deaths and countless merc deaths throughout. Around the 10hr and 15hr marks I had to stop and do Pindle runs to gather more gold for repairs and resurrections. But by the end, I was getting much more comfortable with the running and only rarely teleported into a pack of cows instead of hurling javelins at them.

    I ran with Trina, my untwinked 99er javazon.

    +2 skills, life, allres rare tiara
    +1 skills, 7fcr, allres crafted caster ammy
    Enigma Light Plate
    Thunderstroke
    Rhyme Tower Shield
    CtA Crystal Sword (+5 BO)
    Spirit Monarch (31 FCR)
    +1 Jav/Spear, 20IAS crafted caster gloves
    Razortail
    Nat's boots
    rare ring with dex, life, fire res, MF
    Manald Heal

    Merc:
    Infinity Giant Thresher (NOT eth *whistles*)
    Tal's mask
    Shaftstop

    My haulpic:

    Doombringer
    4os Monarch
    5os Phase Blade x2 (BOTH found in the SAME run!)

    Sparking GC
    3 Steel GCs (Craftsmanship, Strength, Sustenance)
    Amber SC of Inertia
    Rugged SC of Good Luck (7%)
    SC of Vita (20)
    3 Steel SCs (Plain, Frost, Strength)
    NO good jewel finds :(

    I'm pretty happy with my results given my inexperience at the runs and (relatively) lack of good gear. I feel confident that next year, this amazon will provide me even better results!

    Here are my qualifiers in the order i found them. I only found 7, but the Pul is missing from my screenshots, it was my 1st find.. not sure what happened to that one. My qualifiers were pretty middle heavy. Nothing in the first 9 hours except the Pul, but then i got showered in the middle.

    What kept me going in my first 9 hours was my Death's Web right off the bat, and some other cool grailers. By the end of it here was my full S/U haul readout from round 1 stash (minus the Dweb which i was using). The last 5 hours of running i didn't find anything and probably the big reason why i got kind of burned out and bored at the end. That dweb tho.. man that changed everything. It really lets you play aggressively and teleport into the middle of the packs you've herded, thanks to the LPK basically healing you up to full after the screen of cows dies.

    I'm eager to build a character w/ the Nightwing's Veil. I saw some cool druid builds using it, but ofc a cold sorc as well.

    Thanks for hosting @Grape ! I'm really blow away by all of the high runes (despite no Zod's). I really thought i had a pretty solid top 10 score but alas! Actually before an RFL vet gave me a reality check, i thought i was going to be a top 5 finish lol.
