    @ffs That's a Zod from a non-Wraith monster even! :)

    I don't know about separate leaderboards but taking into account lower runes seems only fair to the 1.07 runners. In fact since the scores are based on rarity the 1.07 qualifiers should go down all the way to those of score 3.4. After all people get their 3.4 points for a 1.13 pul but no points for a 1.07 Lum. (A 1.12 Lum is about as rare as a 1.13 Pul and I assume that 1.07 runes are even rarer than those in 1.12.)

    Currently 1.07 runners only get scores above 19.4 points per rune or nothing at all. That's roughly the equivalent of 1.13 runners only counting runes Jah and above. (which would be ridiculous...)

    Wow! WoRG needs to teach the rest of the 1.07'ers how to play the game it seems! Congrats to everyone what a crazy round! I thought I was a shoe-in for top 5, but missed it by 23 points :eek:
    • Round 1 Vex+ - 1
    • Round 2 Vex+ - 1
    • Round 3 Vex+ - 5 (and a vex from the chest)
    So needless to say, I've very pleased with the results. Did almost the whole set with my poison pit necro on p5. Runs avg'd right around 2:30 (so not too good), but were avg'ing closer to 2:00 near the end. Did about 2 hours on my blizz sorc in AT on p3 just because i felt like doing a few runs, and she dropped me the vex! Found a vex right off the bat from the chest in the pit (so non-qualifier) and was able to upgrade my necro's spirit sword (lol) to a hoto. Anyways here are the haul pics!

    The ist was from the chest as well, so it's off by itself.

    All was stuff I didn't have before the round. Honestly thought MF drops would be a little better, but I can't complain about stormspire and halaberds, as well as some useful items I hadn't found yet. Also finally turned up my first set of titans which I forgot to include in the pic.

    DATA

    @art_vandelay jahs are rare? I wouldn't have guessed :p I'm now sitting with two jah's in the stash doing nothing, and still haven't seen a non-cubed ber (and don't have infinity).

    Scoring more runes for 1.07 doesn't make too much sense to me. Then they would have a distinct advantage with having the same chance for smaller points, but also small chances for huge scores that 1.14'ers don't have. Anyways congrats to @WoRG! As far as I know, he's the first 1.07'er to place at all in any RFL round (someone correct me if I'm wrong), let alone dominate the whole tourney.

    @LongingForDeath your rune haul is obviously incredible, but 15 skillers amazes me as well. I think that's about how many I have total!

    @Grape Thanks so much for hosting. I had a great time, and it was a reallllly fun way to re equip after a reset to join the forum.

    Edit: One more edit to say @art_vandelay your arcane zod drop is so freakin cool. Really caps off the RFL with the whole "is arcane worth the no chance at zod" question.

    Amazing job @WoRG !!!

    Congrats as well to all runners, some seriously good hauls this round. Zods and Chams abound!

    As for me, well, you can pretty much see how it went. 15 hours of running without a single qualifier, it might be time for me to move on from the Pits for Round 3 next year. Still very happy with my overall placement, and congrats to @ffs for sneaking by me right at the end there. ;)

    My round wasn't a total waste though, I got some good XP for the necro, and although I didn't get any actual qualifiers I did get something to be excited about; a grailer!

    Screenshot332.jpg

    That puts me finally into the single digits at grail -9. It's actually eth which is great for the eth grail, but horrible for wanting to try it out on some fun builds. Guess I'll just have to find another! :p

    Congrats again to @WoRG and @ffs for the great finishes, and to everyone who found some success during this RFL. MASSIVE thanks to @Grape for hosting once again, you are awesome!

    I tested MF barbs for AT and Pit and compared them in the running thread. More precisely, I used Pit berserker, Pit singer and AT barb.

    You guys want unusual haulpics, were here is the one. Ups, this is RFL, right? Well, I didn't want to waste my time on CS or AS and this is the result of such approach:

    FINAL WORDS

    This third round was quite fun to change from runefinding areas into magicfinding ones. I knew from beginning this round is not actually about runes. Last time I focused CS for runes I found exactly nothing. Cool if xp is needed. Now I think I actually found solid items and did solid running overall. Not from runefinding aspect of course. I already started to level up my pitbarb to level 97 to profit some extra hit chance for faster running. 20 hours job overall.

    I'd fancy some MF tournaments or league in the future. Anyway, until the next time, fellas ;)

    Crazy stuff Gripphon !!! Makes me want to do some dedicated mf runs too. Until I realize I'll end up with 5 9.3+ qualifiers at best in the span of 20 hours, not 17 :confused:

    I think set was above average in everything except maybe quality. I think closer to expectations would be something like 2-3 runes, 12 MFO items and maybe 3 to 4 facets

    Well, another abysmal showing from me. I shouldn't complain too much as I put together a new char for each round. I actually ran 2 1/3 sets this time. I got nothing from the third set, not that there was much to it. I even did a couple hours of AS at one point with decent run times, 70-80 seconds, but had nothing at all to show for that. Well, I did die once from my frantic pace and that was a bit of a turn off and part of the reason I returned to the safety of the pits. Anyways, here are a couple things that will go to good use, probably sooner than later. The Ohm is from the first set and the Jah and Tal from the second.

    Congrats to all, I've been quite impressed with some of the improvements in efficiency I've seen since my return and thanks to Grape for hosting.

    Congratulations to everyone on their haul. I just wasn't able to get enough time in the last couple rounds, but here is my feeble attempt for qualifiers in the run up to midnight on Thursday (top 5 for the couple hours I got in, figured I would haulpic it anyway :) ):

    Screenshot164.jpg

    I did find one grailer, and one decent SC as well:
    Screenshot157.jpg

    Screenshot136.jpg

    Hopefully things will settle down a bit and I can get some more time for playing and being active on the forums. Making an attempt at the "Overburdened" tourney at the moment.

    If @WoRG doesn't show up here within 24 hours, his score should be divided by 2 ;).

    My haulpic would look similar, just with white runes.

    Thanks for all the congrats, I'm pretty amazed I actually won this! It was pretty gratifying to be able to run in 1.07 and still compete, even if it does boil down to luck with the RNG! Congrats to all the other runners, and wow at @art_vandelay for the Zod from AS!!

    I ran Chaos Sanctuary with my 'zon, the same character I ran cows with for the first round...but as a Multishot bowzon instead of a furyzon. She used pretty much the same equipment as she did for cows, but as she didn't do nearly as much herding, I swapped out her crafted boots for Goblin Toes for the extra Crushing Blow, and I crafted her a better bow before round 3 started... I had initially thought I could get her down to 7fpa, not realizing that in 1.07, mat bows are speed 0, not -10...but at least I could use Gface instead of ValkWing and still hit 8fpa.

    She is a LOT of fun to play, and is surprisingly safe...with a fast, hurty bow, 75%CB (15%gloves, 35%Gface, 25%GoblinToe), Amp from her Saracen's, and the range and area coverage of 1.07 Multishot, it was pretty rare for anything to get close enough to threaten her! Even de Seis usually wasn't too scary! I also killed Diablo as well...his drops are crap in 1.07, but he does give decent XP (at least until lvl96).

    I ran in multiplayer games to up player settings...CS is big enough to make this quite worthwhile. I ran 6 player games (1 host, my lvl99 sorc to teleblitz to CS through the random RoF maps and open a portal, my runner, and 3 partied toons in-level). I'm pretty sure this is a lot of the reason I did so well overall, you get a lot more drops this way!

    Overall, I was somewhat disappointed with drops...I got very few uniques, except from Diablo, and he only ever drops from his normal TC in 1.07...I did get a few items for the eth grail, but thats about it...lots of flawless gems, but fewer jewels and charms than I expected.

    As for runes, I got a Gul from Infector's pack about 2 hours in, then Ohm from a random finger mage or doom knight at about 9 hours. Then a long spell of no qualifiers until de Seis' pack dropped a Mal at about 18 hours...
    RFL19r3_Gul.jpg
    RFL19r3_Ohm.jpg
    RFL19r3_Mal.jpg
    As I ran CS, it seems appropriate to do the Diablo haulpic thing...I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I'm attaching both:
    RFL19r3_haulpic1.jpg
    RFL19r3_haulpic2.jpg

    Sorry for the delay in posting...I didn't get back from vacation until early Tuesday morning, worked Tuesday, came home to find the power out (didn't come back on until after I went to bed), then found Wednesday after work that the power supply in my PC was dead, so I couldn't get online until this evening after installing a new one...

    Any insta-death scares or advice for HC build? I'd be tempted to try this, as sorc is kinda slow in CS.

    Did you have your other characters in CS during the runes or in town?

    @pharphis no real insta-death scares, though de Seis could occasionally be hairy (tho that depended on the map as much as his mods...if it was one of the straighter maps that allowed long-range bombardment, he just died...;)) She really was quite safe, and I didn't even have D/A/E (so, also no Valk), which would up safety even more. I also ran with no merc (I didn't want to replace her barb merc, who is quite useful elsewhere, but just insta-gibbs himself in CS due to IM)... a rogue or act3 guy might help a bit.

    I left the game host in act1, and the sorc in town in ActIV after teleblitzing thru RoF and portaling in CS (I did this because I found running thru RoF much more dangerous...with random maps, it was all too easy to get trapped and swarmed in dead ends, and the right bosspack of Abyss Knights can be REALLY deadly!) The three partied toons went into the portal to CS as soon as I cleared it, and stayed there for the rest of the run, upping drop odds by the equivalent of 2 non-partied players each! (Not sure if the two other nonpartied players help any, but if so, then it would be the equivalent of /p9 drops :p)

    Better late than never - the two HR dropped in the first set of the last round, LoIo (sic) and Ohm, and the set haulpic.

    Now i can grab them from qualifiers stash!
