Unless you're impatient I wouldn't waste a socket quest on that armor.

Nice progress, as usual! Must be quite a difference now with Grief :p

True...I forget regularly that cube recipe cannot be used on superior armors! Will sell it then :p

I stopped right after craft, but we know it will be a huge upgrade ;)

Next real goal, better armor than Smoke!

BabyNinetyNiner now 85: almost completed 83 doing pit runs and grabbing few useful things, then ran to LK as fast as possible in p1 or p3, getting there close to complete lvl 85. After some runs on first map, decided to leave the very good A1 Countess map to roll a LK one, and the one found is kinda good, allowing a run in about 42 secs with not so optimized gear, whereas I was close to the minute on previous one.

Some times I have to fight a bit, but with Grief, it's never an issue. Some time lost, some xp gain... all in all, it breaks the robotic runs!

Now the pics, i'll add details later!

This or Mara's...i'll take for now, maybe until the end!


Some fire res and elemental damage...I'll use it too


An upgrade! Will even cube it to elite sash later :)


Don't need Mal anymore... half an Ist. Good!


I'll never see you again Duriel...thanks for the token essence!


Act 3 means LK, means running, means Harmony :)


And some more defense while running by upgrading the sash


Dropped skillers (4)





Then the what we are here for... the runes! In about an hour of running, very happy!




1) Amn Ral Mal Mal+(Mal) (Ohm)
2) Dol Pul+Lem+Lem Sur+(Sur) Mal+Mal
2) (Jah) Ith Sur+(Sur)
2) El Sol Dol (Lo)
3) Vex (Ohm) Mal+Mal Dol

Got a seraph rod's rack...can't do anything really good, but got some fun drops


And crafted an upgraded Stealth :)


The map, 42-43secs running poking the two armor racks


At some point, decided to open doors to Mephisto so that Zakarumites just run away...so much time saved!

See you on next update!

I started to record LK runs of BabyNinetyNiner. The second session, of about 90 runs, had been pretty rewardful: a second Mal and an Ohm rune, lvl 86 on top of that.

As a consequence, between Cta and Exile, he crafted Cta (254) because he had the correct base. He has no more Mal runes - had to craft the Ist one - but next Ohm will be for shield, and as untwinked, finding a 30+ all res eth elite base will be enough to craft it.

For armor, will go with either Fortitude (preferred) or CoH (handle resists needs), whichever comes first (Lo or Sur + Ist + Um/Pul)

Rune drops

Cta Craft

BabyNinetyNiner hit lvl ** tonight, at the pits, while trying to find some decent armor for his Fortitude. Why Fortitude ? Because LK went to drop the Lo:

So after half a level still at LK, and dying to some triple pack with conviction + fanatism combo, he went to the Pits for the base, leaving the Gheed's and mf sc in the stash.

Here are the other nice drops from LK running, some are used by BabyNinetyNiner now (amongst them his second Pcomb skiller, with FRW):

Wyrmhide is not that bad (464 def /470 max def), 4 os already, and 84 strength req. Loricated mail is higher at 488, but the 149 strength req shall not be useful - except if some Vortex shield comes with high resistances, but it is not probable enough to count on it.

So for now, i'm thinking about crafting the Fortitude on this Wyrmhide - maybe i'll give me another session to confirm that choice/hope for something better.

Other noticeable drops: Disciple set parts, and Ohm rune (the Sacred armor on the screenshot was 1os):


As a consequence, BabyNinetyNiner is one Ist close from Exile. Something to search after while questing: the base!

See you on next update!

BabyNintyNiner hit lvl 89 running the pits with as low mf as possible in order to find bases. He found some, even if for now, things are not as wonderful as it could be...

Things started with a plain Archon plate


Only 2os... well, will be a better Smoke :rolleyes:

An exile base... or not...

Well... is it a pure fail, or a Phoenix could be interesting with those automods, even with low base def?

An ethereal Wire fleece went to drop and bugged...


3os! Treachery for merc, perfect :)

Talking about merc, on this very run, before going back to town...

Pretty nice drop! Now, he has to be equipped with some life leech weapon, it won't come from armors as it stands - for now, he is just dead :)

Last drop was a [email protected] shield, so can be of interest even if strength req is pretty high


Well, that's all for this session... almost!

He dropped this armor at some point:
Code:
Great Hauberk

Strength req is 118, but it's no investment when using Guillaume's (115 req +15 strength = 130 strength). Good base for the Fortitude i guess? Your thoughts?

See you on next update!

Edit: error on Guillaume's strength req, thought it was lower oO

BabyNinetyNiner decided to run Travincal during a level, trying to get some nice high rune there, increasing global wealth, and making some use of that map (all on the balcony, left side).

Things started with a barbarian Tiara of Dex


Followed by an almost nice ring and a really nice shimmering sc



Maybe the 4th one... low stats


This GC could be useful, but my build has a hole in cold def... therefore no point in using it - at least for now


Validated the rite of passage there... guess he's awaited at Ancient's :)


Finally some cold res


If only the base was an elite shield!!!


31 all res


Pretty nice one, useful for now (replacing a 20life 15 mana)


And... why ? :(


This would fit... have to try if losing the 96AR is ok to get the resistances up


Large charms... if it was not craftmanship but something useful, could have been a good elemental damage charm


Mahim-Oak Curio


And some kind of upgrade, allowing to get through the 48FHR breakpoint (59 now). It will allow the replacing of a sc of balance with AR when something better comes!


So... that's it. No high rune for now, best is currently Fal, based upon my xp computation in about 120 runs (running at /p5). Kinda disappointed, but i have to keep in mind that RFL was about 20 hours batches, here i did about 3 hours. Well at least the charms were worth the time, and that dual leech ring with resistances could be an upgrade too.

Could have been a great day if skillers was a Pcomb one, but well, got curse...d ;)

See you on next update!

BabyNinetyNiner is now an official BabyNinety, and decided to go back to questing. Travincal was run on p5, questing run through on p3, stopping only for champs/uniques. Let's go!

Before leaving Travincal, the only rune worth a screenshot...the Gul:


This GC of CR/life replaces the 23%CR I was using until then:


Mephisto's drops were nice...kira's was even an upgrade for the merc!



Set amu and rings...always nice!



Jump in the fight to liberate Izual

Who's the Patty :cool::p

The last stretch: crossing the River of flames, Beating the D, crossing the Frozen river, Defeating the B.

After a double death to the Infector who popped with Conviction aura, Diablo was really easy


After Anya freeing, did a few Pindle runs, and a nice SC dropped!


Soon after, headed to the Ancients, who were easy as there was no physical immune - a stone skin, but it mainly took longer because i forgot to reset /players to 1


WSK delivery :)


But could have delivered better... if unique!


Baal himself had to give something... useless for BabyNinetyNiner, but not a bad drop nevertheless


Anyway...


Done!

Now next target will be cow running for elite shield bases (Exile targeted) and/or dropping a Reaper's Toll for merc to get some life leech.

See you on next update here for 99er goal still running, or in the Pat story thread to be written in the coming days!

If you're serious about farming exile and want an ebugged shield, racking LK is probably the way to go. Congrats on the pat!
 

Babyhell

Diabloii.Net Member
@Luhkoh thx! But i will take any elite targe/rondache 4os with [email protected] even if not ethereal, my map seed is just amazing somehow...quick Mephisto, quick WSK/Baal running, kinda good LK for when i get Enigma, Travincal is very good, pits are interestingly close from black marsh waypoint, which is next to The hole (can be interesting for bases also), i have to check countess... will try my luck at cows (or TC 63/72 areas if i'm right on sacred targe/rondache ilvl), map is not fantastic but i can deal with it.

I'll try to make a running video just to show routes. I'm even leaving imbuing and larzuk's quests on normal and nightmare...

In any other case i would have racked it!
 

Babyhell

Diabloii.Net Member
The map found while getting the LK map... i find it pretty amazing, don't you think?

I made acts 1, 3 and 5. I have to make Ancients too, but i don't have run it once yet. Will do it and add if interesting!

Should have made it at p1, but anyway




Additional: Ancient Tunnels - see here (number of media limitation)

Nice! Definitely make rhyme in the sacred targe and keep it around. It can be really nice on occasion for res, mf, nice block, and cbf (so you dont have to wear raven). But grats on the exile! Let us know how you like it, I've never made one myself.

Edit: and I watched your video. That is a pretty nice set of maps. I think the trav one makes it worthwhile for sure. I definitely recommend you try moving around with vigor plus charge more though. It takes some getting used to but its really fun. Both for just going fast as well as for bombarding an enemy before zealing.

But looks like fun. Not idea why but I have a soft spot for zealots. Looks so fun that I might want to try and do something similar :) But it will wait quite a while for me to finish up my current goals first, so no promises.
