    I'm trying to level him as well. He started the round with level 95 and I'd like him to reach at least the halfwaypoint to 97 in this set.

    My question was more about the walls near Infector that can 'absorb' the hammers.

    @art_vandelay I generally prefer straight-arm layout. But with my 99er hammerdin, I preferred hook because it was easier to consistently land below the pack to maximize hammer damage (and it seemed easier to quickly spot conviction aura).

    3 hours done. Quality has been burnt on previous runs i guess... for runes, i mean.A lready some TC87 grailers, i guess round 3 will be more about non-qualifiers than qualifiers.

    Anyway, really close to lvl 93 !

    Question. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to area runnning for runes. I'm planning to run the pits with a bowzon. I should therefore try for higher player settings as long as it doesn't negatively affect my run time, yes? Or would I drop it down to /p1 for as quick runs as possible?

    Some 3,5 hours in doing P8 WSK, Pits, Tal Tombs but mainly just P8 waves and P3 Baal. I love the possible variety of these area runs! Drops haven't been great as expected for Baal, yet, but exp surely is. I'll hit lvl 95 today :) Too bad I will be out of the country for the next two weeks but I'll squeeze in what I can.

    I also died three times before I nailed my gear set and also failed to recover my body twice while at it... 20/18 Wisp does come in handy even though those deaths came from teleing into fanapacks :rolleyes:

    ok, I finally pushed my necro to 90 in 1.07 so I'll start doing some of these boring AT runs with my fissure druid, again.

    yawn

    This.

    Go at least p3 or p5 if p7 is not quick enough, i bet p1 is not efficient enough. But for the table drop rates gods, should wait a bit for other answers ;)

    Three hours in, just hit 95 with my Hammerdin. No runes so far.
    Considering switching to the Pit Necro, but I will probably wait until the 5h mark.

    Alright, I can finally provide a partial answer to the question "what is AT barb capable of?"

    I timed 50 runs and ended on 4.48 s/bosspack which is comparable to the long-term efficiency of my Pit berserker (whether or not this is long-term AT barb efficiency remains to be seen). Here is the video demonstration of gameplay showing ~4.36 s/bosspack running




    Is that it? No, it is not. What is left now to do is calculate ideal AR numbers, calculate when to use Concentrate and when Berserk most efficiently and mostly to improve the gameplay since this barb is kinda "new" while I had thousands of runs of practice with Pit berserker. Maybe even redistribute skill points slightly differently? Who knows.

    Where are really the limits of this barb? Can he really challenge the throne of the Pit zerker? We shall see! Let's give this barb some serious practice and then truly answer those questions. AT barb is complicated and there are many things to watch out for with him, especially combining two types of attacks for the best effect.

    What I will say for now is this: Pit zerker finally has the first real challenger ever for his MF throne. AT barb is still not explored enough to draw definite conclusions, but the simplicity of playing will always be the Pit zerkers strong advantage. :)
    Let's see is there only one true MF king or will there be two of them!

    Hopefully this will inspire people to give more serious look at AT barb. For now here are skillpoints and gear I use:
    Shako (Cham)
    Enigma
    2/fcr/MF amulet
    Grief + Azur (Ist)
    Goldwrap
    Chancies
    fcr/lifesteal/MF ring
    MF/lifeseteal ring
    War Travelers

    Switch: dual Suicide
    Merc: 1.07 Walk (Cham)
    Treachery
    Insight GP

    Skills:
    20 BO
    20 IF (55%)
    1 BC
    1 Inc. Speed
    1 Resists
    20 Concentrate
    16 Berserk
    20 Sword Mastery

    Resits: Poison and Lightning are important

    I don't know how you count this, but this is 800 packs per hour
    I'm doing 250 and no way I'm 3 times slower

    Ok, that explained it.
    I'm also counting any champion pack as 1 bosspack.

    Time divided by number of bosspacks divided by hork % (55% hork is 1.55)
    1 champion pack counts as 1 bosspack

    I think you didn't account your item find into calculation.

    Just passed 3 hours with the bowazon.

    No shiny orange drops yet, but I did find a green Diadem that I forgot to take a screenshot of, and this nice rock:
    Screenshot001.jpg

    I seem to have gotten quite lucky with my map- I'm currently only doing up to Grand Vizier running up the left-hand side of CS, and very consistently get 3-6 packs en route to the seal!

    Haven't done any runs yet. Maybe tomorrow. But probably not much. Want to do some gambling first.

    6 hours mark passed. Shall be lvl 94 before the halfway mark. Thinking about a non qualifiers top 3 disclosure at that time, and see what needs to be beaten !
