@ioupainmax great! I've seen plenty of these lately, but not a single one with a new ilvl!

Only two remains to be gambled for me (ilvls 90 and 92), rest are droppable by monsters. I just wonder how much gold I will have to throw at it. A billion or two more might do ;)

:eek: Nice finds, I'm trying to get a Bahamut's ring of the Apprentice, so I imagine I will improve my Cathan's collection somewhat before I get what I need.

OK, why not enter. I have 28 different seals and 44 total. Efficiency rating is decent. Now I can check the i Lvl whenever I find one! It is always good to have something else to do.

I'm missing only one of those that need to be gambled, ilvl 93. After I get that I'm pretty sure I could finish this should I want to put some effort. Probably funnier to just keep picking them up for a good while though and checking what's missing every now and then :)

I'm past the 50 %, this time it's three more down. Not sure about the third, but apparently I was missing ilvls 60 and 55. Got them from Norm Baal and NM Summoner, guesting with the same character in one session :)

Eight more to the leading spot, although @ioupainmax is close as well!

Empty space = missing ilvl, first in the inventory (from top left) = ilvl 15 and the last one in the stash = ilvl99.

Super easy to keep a count of these. Why don't YOU just join this Grail today! ;)

Rolled another Cathan's Seal with the 1.07 poison rez ring formula today, which finally spurred me to dig through my stashes and put together my entry for this...I knew I had a lot, but hadn't thought I was quite so close...

1.07 is very good for this grail, as most of the ilvls that must be gambled in modern patches can actually drop in 1.07. On the other hand, I don't believe you can get ilvl96 or ilvl97 Cathan's in 1.07, as you can't gamble set/unique items there...

Fortunately, I had already gambled ilvls 96 & 97 Cathan's Seals years ago with Spatha_Lux, and 1.07 Nihlathak provided an ilvl98 one in short order, so I'm only missing 10 ilvls (15,20,21,24,27,29,33,39,42,48).

I know I have at least some of those ilvls in my hardcore tourney stashes, but I decided not to mix in any hardcore items for this...who knows, if I complete this grail softcore, I may enter again for hardcore :rolleyes:

Empty space = missing ilvl, first in the inventory (from top left) = ilvl15 and the last one in the stash = ilvl97, ilvls98 & 99 worn.
Flawless Gems show Cathan's from the 1.07 resistance ring cube formulae, Emerald=PR, Topaz=LR, Ruby=FR, Sapphire=CR.

@Grape if you're still missing ilvl93, try running 1.07 hell council w/330MF...Galeb, Ismail, or Toorc should drop you an ilvl93 Cathan's MUCH faster than gambling in modern!!!

Lemma

Diabloii.Net Member
I decided to check my stash and found I had the following ilvls already:
33, 48, 57, 58, 60, 72, 73, 75, 79-88, 94, 95, 99

I'll have to start saving these when I time travel as well since I know I've vendored some of the ilvls I'm missing in 1.00 (e.g. 31 from norm cow king).

Been sorting through all my stashes, so I figure this is a good time to update. With well over 100 copies, I thought I would have had more. Too many copies of ilvl 85 and **. :rolleyes:

Edit: Forgot about 1.07. +6 more levels from there. ;)

Also, @WoRG that looks hideous. You're gonna need to find all the same ring type..
