Wow, just wow! What a round. Records abound, with second best 1.13+ result and some broken 1.07 shenanigans. Thanks to everyone for great participation and prompt results.

Without further adieu, let us all bow to our 1.07 overlord (and some really nice results for the 1.13+ crowd). I left some fun punctuation and editorial commentary from the PMs, rather than tidying up, because I thought it was fun, and telling ;)

Thanks to everyone for sending results so quickly. It was great to be able to post before work the morning after the round ends! This is a new record for Zods in an RFL Moo Moo round, so quite impressive. Chams were few and far between, but quite a haul of high runes otherwise, so congrats to everyone on the nice shiny rocks. RFL Rd 2, here we come!

This is a joke, right?

Let me see those pics @WoRG

Guess I'm no longer the only 1.07 zod-holder!

So was it /p1 or /p8? Something else?

I thought Cham was the highest from cows. What is dropping Zods? Champions? Chests?

The 1.07 points also seem way out of proportion. I get that it must be insanely rarer, but a single HR drop out of 5 or 6 possible drops will auto-win the tournament? Hmmmmm....

Obviously, there was some kinda 'strange attractor' action going on this RFL round...SIX(!!!) Zods?!? The mind boggles....

I'm still reeling from my own drops...when the Zod dropped halfway through my second set, I was shocked down to my toenails...and when the Jo dropped as I was finishing the set thursday evening, well...my family thought I was having a fit, jumping around and hollering :ROFLMAO:

Honestly, the Zod drop stunned me so much that while I goggled at the screen, numbly fumbling to stab the PrtScrn key, a cow had time to wander up from off-screen and whack my Zon (they usually don't get closer than the second cow...she really is very safe!)

LOL, its REALLY indestructible (for some reason, 1.07 doesn't display the Weapon/Armor/Helm/Shield headings on Zod)...also, LOL at having an El rune in her inventory at the time!

I considered stopping at that point...the Zod clinched the victory for me, after all, but it seemed cheesy to win on a single supremely lucky drop, given the efforts that others had put in already, so I resolved to finish the set...I'm so glad that I did! Thursday evening, with just under an hour to go on my second set, and with the tourney deadline looming, lightning struck a second time and I got a Jo Rune! In some ways, this was even cooler... @pharphis got a 1.07 Zod drop a couple years ago, but I've never seen a Jo drop, here on the SPF or anywhere!!

107_Jo.jpg

107_Jo_Inv.jpg


I do wonder, though, if one has dropped for someone before and they failed to recognize what they had...look at the screenshot, in the font that D2 uses, Jo looks JUST like Io from a modern patch (it's Po in 1.07)!! I'd read somewhere online that in weapons, Jo (not Cham) had Freezes Target in 1.07, but its slow instead...now I'm wondering what a 1.07 Cham looks like (I don't think anyone has ever gotten one... don't look at me, I think I've probably used up all my rune luck in 1.07)

I did also get a non-qualifier Mal from Rakinishu's pack while getting a leg fairly early on...

After getting zero qualifiers in my first set, I focused hard on improving my run times, only picking gold, runes, flawless gems, lesser rubies/emeralds/sapphires/topazes for ring rerolling, circlets, and charms, id'ing the latter two immediately and tossing them back if they weren't good... this lowered my runtimes a lot, although still nowhere near the 2½ minute mark some of y'all achievedo_O... I picked up gold because without static maps, and with the long range of multishot in 1.07, it was often hard to tell if I'd already picked over a loot pile...grabbing the gold made it obvious, and also really reduced white clutter on the ground (runes are WHITE in 1.07, so this really helps!!) After the Zod dropped, I relaxed a bit, and started checking barb helms and blue elite items again... (because you just KNOW all those you don't check roll godly! ...or at least thats how I always feel...:rolleyes:)

I got several nice non-qualifiers, including a couple excellent skillers with life:

Other great skillers were Natural of Greed (+1 Elemental / 32% GF), Acrobatic of Maiming (+1 P&M /+18 Max), and Mentalist of Maiming (+1 Shadow /+20 Max)...
Other great charms were Steel GC of Maiming (+130AR /+20 Max), Sharp GC of Maiming (+76AR /+29 Max), Serrated GC of Sustenance (+19 Max/+32 Life), Ruby LC of Maiming (+23 FR/+12 Max), Shimmering SC of Good Luck (5% allRez/ 4%MF), and Fine SC of Good Luck (+20AR/+2 Max/ 4%MF)

Also got some nice circlets for niche builds, like so:

A very stylish Barb Helm (couldn't resist, its an elite base, and besides, I'd already found the Zod at this point...)

FrenzybarbChapeau.jpg



One of my favorite non-qualifiers wasn't even a drop...as I was ID'ing in the field, after ending every run I would pop by Akara to refill the tome. I habitually scan her inventory for wands of Lower Resist with any character who is lvl94+ (since shops sell clvl+5 items, thats high enough for lvl3 LR wands). Anyway, I happened to notice that one of the War Scepters in her inventory was that green color that means +2 skills, so I checked it out....

Needless to say, after I picked my jaw up off the floor, I bought it immediately...I was amazed she didn't want more for it, vendors usually go nuts for staffmod items in 1.07...

I didn't get many unique items at all... Islestrike, Earthshaker, a couple Rattlecages... kinda strange, but no biggie...
As far as sets go, I'd hoped to get a Naj's Puzzler, but didn't (no surprise)... I did get a few nice set items, a couple Mav's belts (VERY nice in 1.07), Telling of Beads and Tal's Ammy (only my 3rd!)..... 12(!) horns, 4 hides, and 3....Sanders Ripraps :mad:... what's up with that? I guess I'm actually going to havta run NM or Normal cows to get the damn hooves in 1.07... I did have one amusing run where ALL 6 pieces of the Sigon's set dropped!!!! I know 1.07 really loves that set, but damn!!!!

Anyway, I'll wrap this up with my meager, 1350+ point haul pic
