    Big shout out to my boy, Naj, for lending me his magical teleportation stick.

    I found the teleporting with a Zon very hard at first as well. With other characters, you can really hold down that Teleport until you are where you want to be. With Zons, you have to carefully scan where you want to go and do just that.

    Still at work :(. Counting down until I can start playing as well, this evening. On the positive side: the few hours of test runs I did over the last few days netted me exactly ... zero qualifiers. Just perfect, I saved up all my luck until the RLF !!

    Of course not. You are from France, I still hate you for kicking us out of the world cup soccer. I'll play alone.

    Just kidding of course ;). Good luck! May a Zod rune drop simultaniously for the both of us :).

    I have been thinking about this. I'd prefer everyone stays in the patch they started the 20 hours in. You can switch after you start the second batch.

    Why? Not because it makes things too complicated but one lucky drop early in 1.07 and switching to +1.13 to squeeze almost certainly some more qualifiers could lead to a rather easy victory.

    Well of course landing a Ber+ in 1.07 is almost guaranteed win, but I'm thinking about Vex-Lo here.

    Data is here for necro p5.
    Runs done: 100
    Runes farmed: 198
    Jewels: 82
    Small charms: 66

    Drop odds for rune: 1/244.5
    Jewels and small charms: 1/571

    Cows killed per run from these figures: 484.11, 468.22, 376.86
    Average: 443

    It's interesting there is so big difference between charms and other stuff. The fact is I didn't pick up all jewels and charms due to cluttering and is rather demanding to dig them out all the time. Runes on the other hand are easy to spot and hard to miss. I can continue doing data by counting runes. I do wonder are drop odds really as they are stated on calculator.

    Where did you get the 244.5 number? I get 216.7 from a quick calc.

    Ah sorry I see thats for p5, my number was p7. I also get 244.5 from a manual calc using the TC txt file for what that's worth.

    P1: 1 in 495.2
    P3: 1 in 303.3
    P5: 1 in 244.5
    P7: 1 in 216.7

    I think I have to include the fact that each bossmonster counts as 1.7 cows on p5 and assuming I kill 5-6 of those per run, I should remove total of 4 cows from numbers calculated based on runes.

    I got an hour in w/ Necro so far but had to stop early.. wrist was giving me some pains. Only found a Ko and Lum so far.. but did manage to snag a barb skiller, 32% Wizendraw for Fishyzon, and a 7 mf sc, so a decent start :D

    I did drop down to P3, as i felt like the cluttering was making me miss stuff on P5. It was actually a miracle i noticed the Lum, and it took quite a bit of back and forth walking before i could even pick it up. After that i was paranoid of missing runes or wasting tons of time trying to find them so i just went down to P3 where i can melt the packs a lot faster and not have the mental anxiety of missing runes from clutter.

    I've spent a couple of hours running andy and meph in hopes of a SoJ for my assa, no luck. Oh well, time to find a cow map.

    @Grape - are we supposed to keep track of total run time for 1.07? ..

    1 qualifier = 1 set :p

    Quick question: It says we can pause the timer to mule to stash. Does this mean I can stop the timer when I leave the cow level to ID stuff and repair after I finish the "run"?

    I always prefer not to post anything related to qualifiers, not even number of qualifiers or hints as to if I had a good or bad run when it comes to qualifiers.

    Finished my first batch of runs: 1 hour 51 minutes. Unfortunately they were a lot slower than my latest test runs, and I can't really figure out why that is. I did have some good drops already though (first one is from my test runs):

    I had a really busy week, so I'm late to posting my goals for the round.

    I'm running with my untwinked 99er javazon. So, really, in absence of XP gain for the round, I'm just hoping for Sur/Ber and Ist necessary for her to make CoH and Delirium. I'm not even setting a goal to finish the set, as I keep thinking of the 20 hours in terms of lost time for XP runs, basically enough to get her most of the way from 96 to 97 based on 3:30/per average for Baal. So if a Sur/Ber drops, I may focus on Baal. But I managed a full 20-hour set for this round last year, so we'll see . . .

    She will be picking up only flawless amethysts, jewels, GCs and SCs, and qualifiers, plus checking grey Threshers (for possible 4os eth for potential Infinity upgrade down the road) and elite assassin claws (still looking for +3 BF claw with decent secondary staffmods for Fury base). So it will be pretty streamlined, especially running on p5 to reduce clutter.

    Gear is as follows:
    Code:
    Griffon's (Shimmering jewel)
    Enigma Mage Plate
    Up'ed Titan's/Spirit
    CtA/Spirit
    2/20 rare gloves
    Razortail
    Silk Weave
    ML ring with decent modifiers
    Ravenfrost
    2/9 caster ammy (allows 68 FCR)
    
    Merc:
    Andy's
    Duriel's Shell
    Eth Infinity CV
    
    Backpack:
    1 skiller
    3 resist GCs w Balance/Sustenance
    Resist/secondary SCs and Vita SCs
    Cube
    2x4 open
    I rolled for map with portal by Stony Field WP and went with the first one. It has decent circular layout with King's pen immediately north of portal allowing counterclockwise runs. I managed only 5 practice runs on Wednesday, but the first one netted a Vex (non-qualifier obviously):
    Cows (Vex).jpg
    And, less than 30 minutes into my set, she picked up her second skiller a little while ago:
    Cows (Jav Skiller).jpg
    Good luck to everyone! Let's see many Zods :)

    Oof...run timer says I've logged 6 hours at cows already. Think I'll take a break.
