After a few trial runs with my Necromancer, I decided it would be better to run with my Meteorb Sorceress. We made it halfway to level 94 in spite of a few deaths. Those dolls are hard to see in the Throne Room!

In total I ran about 9 hours, and was hoping a buzzer beater on my last Baal kill, but the rune gods decided to taunt me again instead:

My only qualifier came about 4 hours in:

My first Jah. Now only the ever exclusive Zod remains to be found.

I was also able to cross off 5 unique items from my grail list:
Earth Shifter
Nord's Tenderizer
Firelizard's Talons

Thanks again for hosting @art_vandelay!

First, thanks to @art_vandelay for hosting.

In short, good rune luck this time. 5 HRs in 20 hours (300-ish runs) is a bit better than my normal in CS (vs 80 runs for every Vex+ drop overall).

Two Jahs and Um directly from kills and/or drops in close proximity to opening last seal.

Cham, Jah, Vex, Gul, and Puls x 2 from alternative strategy.

The real good news is that I am very close to having the runes to complete the runeword grail. Working on optimal bases now by reviewing threads on the topic.

Congrats all...

Congrats everyone! With all the dropouts I thought I had a good chance in the 3rd category, but phineas was right there too! I did the first 2.5 hours with my hammerdin, and he found no qualifiers. I then ran my untwinked 99er sorc the rest of the set, as well as 8 hours into a second set. The second set netted only a single vex. Went from 97.0 to 97.41. With these jah, ohm, vex drops, phoenix suddenly seems very achievable. So i think it's settled that I'll be going fire build for nihla runs at 98 unless a griffons magically appears. Need only an ohm OR Lo for phoenix now, and a sur OR ber for infinity.

However, just like an hour ago I dropped this, and actually gave a bigger "wooo" than the jah got :p

I'll probably still wait till 98 to make the infi, but now I can rest easy.

Interesting non-qualifiers:
  • eth skulders
  • aureolic (3mpk) jewel of fervor
  • trap skiller 26 life
  • warcries skiller 12 life
  • 11 pdr natures peace
  • leviathan
  • reapers
  • metalgrid!
  • valk wing
Here is the haulpic!

Thanks for hosting, and congrats to everyone who particiapted and found something!

0 qualifiers is painful; but expected.

Exp wise, I started with 43mil shy of dinging lvl 98 and gained 16m over 12 hours of play - not 15 like I said in the running thread.
That equates to 1.33m/h or just one 20-hour set away for the next level. :D

Nice job everyone. My drops helped my RW Grail move along, but I didn't get a Jah / Ber that I really need.

@pharphis Just a little joke referencing WoRG's sick finds last RFL ;)


I'll do the lazy man's haul pic for this one:

I have wifi and a little down time during our travels, so thought I'd add my results post before it's too out of date :)

As I told @art_vandelay in my results PM, these tourneys are a great setting to keep the XP runs going with the untwinked 99ers. I doubt that Quinta would have made as much progress before we left for vacation without the goal of finishing a 20-hour set here.

As for results, my untwinked 99er zon managed exactly 5 qualifiers from Nihl, with the Vex dropping in the last 5 minutes to salvage the set after a 15-hour dry spell with a Lo as the only other Vex+ drop (and the first qualifier within the first hour or so of the set). Shadow Dancers were the only real non-qualifier of note.

On either side of the 20-hour set were a Sur and a Jah, with the Sur coming during the last 1M XP before starting the mini-RFL set. So just slightly different timing on those drops would have tipped the balance, but it was not to be. Congrats to @Luhkoh on the win, and everyone for the nice shiny rocks! And thanks again to our host!
