Have been having busy several weeks, but i should be able to play here. Now the only question remaining is what character should i use. I already have a Barbarian for Trav, but i think i'll go with Zealot here.

I'm in. will be mixing it up between nova Necro and my zerker barb (not respecing so he's not ideal but he's fun and will keep the 20 hours interesting). Most of the time will be necro so i can be somewhat competitive. I've played with a few setups on my Merc & Necro and think i finally found the balance of defense and offense that i like. Merc going to run Ral'd steelshade, Skin of Flayed one w/ 15 IAS Jewel and eth CA Insight. Necro's only change is a Dwarf Star instead of BKWB and a Ral in his shako. Can't run Rising Sun as i need the 20 FCR ammy to hit my FCR breakpoint as i don't have an Arach's yet... With this setup and just 36 fire res, my necro can tank hydras and my merc & golem have no problems surviving. Necro's map is really nice too. I get all of the council in a pretty tight group on both magic line paths, but prefer the top path as the teleporting is slightly faster and it spawns them inside on the left dead end. Bottom path spawns them on the steps.

My goals are to find a couple of Ber's so i can make my Infinity

Why shouldn't I get my butt kicked again? Maybe I'll find one more Sur before friday and can cube my (then) four Surs into two Bers. That would mean one mean Infinity for my sorc.

I'm in.

My goals for this run:

- Step up into the top 10
- To do so, drop a crafted Zod through two Cham
- getting a Jah Ber pair to make a mage plate enigma
- share time between two chars
- keeping some MF for some facets ?
- and the most important: having fun !

@Vildecor I'd probably put a facet in, since Nightwing's is all about damage. But if your damage is already high enough and a facet won't do much for your kill speed, a ptopaz is always a cheap option for some more MF.

@Babyhell Might be a little bit suspicious if you have a Zod among your top 5 in this round, even if you provide a pic ;).

My goals for this round:
  • Everything but more Jahs, Vexs and Ohms (ideally 1 Cham, 2-3 Lo and 1 Ber; don't mind if they are spread out over several batches)
  • Make it into the top 8
  • Facets
  • Tal Rasha's Adjudication
  • Telling of Beads
  • Metalgrid and Seraph's Hymn would be nice, too

Been so busy running mephy for that reapers that I forgot sign up! Enigma-less barb for me. Goals are simple:
1. Ber or 2xSur to make enigma
2. Ohm or any cube combination for cta.

@Grape I think you have the cow scores for 1.07 listed.

I'm going to try to put up a fight against travincal bots.
Says the one of the original travbots. You may have fooled the CAPTCHA, robot, but you can't fool me.

I'm in with Eleanor the lvl 99 Blizz sorc. She has had some gear upgrades since her last RFL appearance in 2017 (she didn't run last year), most notably in the amulet and charms:

Gear is as follows:

Nightwings (15% + 5/5 facet)
Havoc Scarab crafted caster amulet (to reach 105% fcr breakpoint)
Code:
Amulet
Required Level: 89
Fingerprint: 0x325a655f
Item Level: 91
Version: Expansion 1.10+
+2 to Sorceress Skill Levels
+10% Faster Cast Rate
+1 to Maximum Damage
+11 to Mana
Regenerate Mana 5%
All Resistances +17
Half Freeze Duration
CoH
Fathom + facet
Spirit
Trangs gloves
Arach
SoJ/Dwarf Star
Aldurs boot (life+FR+frw=gg)

Going to run 8 skillers this year, 2 columns for picking. I don't plan on picking up any flawless gems or rals/sols. Just qualifying runes and charms if I happen to notice them right away.

Blizz damage: 10-11k
Life: 2.2k
Mana: ~700

So far I've managed to keep her right around 18s, but I think I'll be a bit lower by the end of the round. For convenience sake, I'll repost video of her from 2017 (before the aforementioned gear improvements) that I put up in the last thread

She now has 2201 likes with my click.

I changed gear for this round to this:

Shako (Ist)
Tal's armor (Ist)
Tal's amulet
Tal's belt
Fathom (facet)
Spirit
Trang gloves
fcr/15mf/resist ring
beta BKWB
War Travelers 50 MF

Inventory is 6 skillers, 40MF Gheed and 7/6 MF small charms totaling 421 MF on the sorc

I figured since we are running best area in the game to farm facets (apart from Meph but lolmeph), I'll sacrifice 1 second of runtimes for big MF boost. In theory there's no real difference between 16s and 23s sorc in winning odds, so... I may very well pick some stuff while there, especially wanting facets. To think more about it this seems like the best deal to me overall.

Eh, why not, I'm a glutton for punishment... may do a set in modern so I can actually post a score this time, if time allows.

Throwing my hat into the ring with my throw barb. Trav is really the best place for him since the rare javs he use don't have increased stack size.

Let's gooooo! :)

I'll be running with this setup:

Code:
Shako 'facet' (5/4)
DFathom 'facet' (20 + 5/5)
2/20 cold amulet
35 Spirit
CoH
SoJ
Rare ring FCR/life/mana/all res
Hellmouth
Arach
WT

CtA/Spirit switch

Merc: HF with Infinity/GA/Kira. None socketed – optimization FTW :)

Inventory 7x Skillers, 5x life/res SCs, rest free for pickup.
Not 100% final but I think I'll go without the Cham'ed Shako this time as I'm not looking for many specific things to pick up at the moment. Think I'll pick up Rals, FAs, rare rings, qualifiers, facets, SC/GC. I might include more MF via Shako or inventory though.

The 2/20 amulet is the only upgrade I found for her since last RFL. The cute thing about it is that it allows me to include Hellmouth while using DFathom. After playing around with it, I've come to really like the running comfort of being healed by Hydras – don't think I'll drop them any time soon. I could go lower on FR to heal even more, but it would be a tiny upside while the downside is being more vulnerable to Conviction rolls. IIRC @NanoMist had a similar reasoning with a Hellmouth setup last year.

Last week I rolled a nice map that initially delivered ~18.5 seconds runs. I thought it couldn't do much better, but inspired by @Gripphon's sub 16s running, I tried harder – and instantly cut run times to ~16.5 seconds. :eek: I guess that makes my goal for this round to get sub 16s as well. ;)


I was considering to try and roll something like that jackpot map Gripp has on his Blizzy, but by now I think I'll stick to this map as it is pretty awesome. Council is not pinned against the corner, but nonetheless somehow their AI behaves in a way that they only move within the Blizzard radius anyway. Only downside is I kill from top left, so I need to get pretty close to the action in order to not miss drops on the bottom ride side, but that is OK with Hellmouth.

On a different note – so we're all going Barb/Sorc or are there some creative people around for a change? :p

I thought there were one or two other builds. Certainly someone who mentioned Novamancer.
