    500 Ancient Tunnels Runs (long)

    Ok, here is the result of 500 runs in Ancient Tunnels. I was originally going to call this "1000 ancient tunnels runs" but I got tired of it, so here is 500 runs.

    I used very attainable 400% MF for the runs (my MF% changed slightly during the runs).

    Tips for running Ancient tunnels:

    - Teleport is almost a must because you have to find the trapdoor in lost city which can take awhile without. Cheapest way is by being a sorceress.

    -Almost no cold immunes! There are usually no cold immunes, only occasionally does a boss spawn CI. I have successfully made runs there with a pure Blizzard Sorceress. No problem.

    -Lightning resist is very good. I would say a must if you play Hardcore.

    -Keep a few antidote potions ready. The poison from the undead is strong!

    My best finds:

    IK Armor, 35ED/IAS Jewel

    I have decided to count all runes Ko and above, but I only found 1 Ko and 1 Fal so it is probably not the best place to run for runes.

    I would say that if I had to do these runs all over I would probably go for less MF and find nice socketables instead. I saw a lot of yellow/blue elite items which could be worth a bit if white/grey instead. Can anybody give any tips for what socketables to look for ? (like, I find a lot of assassin claws, I do not know which to keep etc.)

    Only 4 Isenhart's cases wow, I'ld say you got lucky and didn't find more.

    That was good that you kept track of what run number you found what on.

    Actually, Lost City is populated by these animated things that move towards you, and when they reach you the red thing on your left is turning transparent, and when it's completely gone you see strange messages displayed on your screen. So, on first sight, teleporting is really good.

    But if you observe carefully, you can attack these things! Just like the monsters in the Ancient Tunnels! And what's even better, they transform into items when you attack them enough! And if that's not enough, there are bosses as well, sometimes even more than one!

    Seriously, there is nothing wrong with killing a few more monsters along the way. By far not all good items need lvl 85+ monsters to drop.

    As for the Isenhart cases: seriously, what does everyone expect? Most people leave these things on the ground, so OF COURSE you'll find them over and over again! It's just natural.

    Pick them up and stash them away, and over time you will significantly reduce the number of Isenhart cases floating around the realm. In a while they might even become insanely valuable due to being in short supply --- with you as the only collector of Isenhart cases, this could be quite an advantage. And even if it isn't, you could still get filthy rich by asking for a highrune or two just to let people look at your impressive collection of Isenhart cases.
