    In 7 hours now, not much to report...found several exceptional uniques. Maybe even a couple I didn't already have for my grail.
    I certainly enjoy running AS over CS with this nova sorc...just smoother gameplay but the drops just aren't up to snuff :(

    My Zon hit the 10 hour mark, with just over 26M XP gained. The good news is that I finally rolled a map that I like, with 1 shrine right by the stairs and limited mobs around Nihl's platform. We were netting 2.5M/hr for the first 5 hours, as she spent about an hour on each likely map before rerolling. So I think that means she's netting around 2.7M/hr on the current map, which is solid given her untwinked status and compared to my prior untwinked 99ers at Nihl.

    I paused the timer when she was rolling maps, so I was sure a Zod or Cham would drop :rolleyes: It didn't happen, but I did get in another 1M with her before the start of mini RFL, picking up a Sur (non-qualifer obviously):
    98 (Sur #1).jpg
    Aside from that, no non-qualifiers meriting screenshots. Notable finds were three TC3s (Felloak, Greyform, Biggins), and a few decent skillers with minor useful modifiers (but not Hapoonist, so still only two of those for her). She had two close calls (one under 200 HP), but things have been smooth on the current map. The biggest risk remains teleporting to Nihl's platform.

    I had two deadlines at work pushed from October to January, so I should be able to finish up the set. At present pace, that should see her just shy of 98.45 for this set, and that's probably where she'll stay until we get back from our trip in November.

    Good luck to everyone who's running! I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

    Great progress phineas! You're a machine. I'm up to about 15 hours or so into my set, and somehow the runs are becoming less boring. Feeling more and more motivated to grind toward 98. Found arkana's first snowclash yesterday and replaced string of ears with it. Definitely notice the decrease in DR and MDR, but my blizzard dmg going from 6k to 6.5k feels significantly faster, so I'm running with it for now :)

    @EatSleepDiablov2 You know the tourney doesn't end for another 6 days right? Just checking because I thought yesterday was the last day for a minute. Seems like you got a real nice amount of skillers and facets!

    I finished my first set. Had some wrist pain this week that slowed me down a bit but i'll keep doing the runs till next thursday, just probably won't make even a half a set. Here are some nice non-qualifiers I got since I posted that eth skulders:

    Set complete and results sent.

    As I got more comfortable with the map, the second ten hours led to much faster run times, with one hour (split into two 30-minute sessions) coming up one run short of 3M. So I'm happy with this map and able to use more aggressive positioning, actually aiming to land on the platform most of the time.

    Just shy of 29M for the second ten hours, averaging close to 2.9M/hr, which is quite nice :) So the mini RFL set saw Quinta past 3.358, and I just finished up the 1M+ to hit a round 3.36.

    The downside was nearly 15 hours there at the end without a qualifier. Brutal, but that's Nihl for you sometimes. The dry spell was broken up by a TC87 Unique, which was a nice surprise:
    98 (Shadow Dancers).jpg
    Oh, and teleporting to Nihl's platform remains the most dangerous part of these runs for her:
    98 (Teleporting NDE again).jpg
    Quick finger on Esc remains important. She's actually had only one NDE from Nihl himself, from stubbornness around broken LI cursed Nihl, with might and archers :rolleyes:

    Given the faster XP gain, I may push for 98.5 before we leave for vacation on Wednesday night. But we're also leaving for an overnight trip later this morning, plus wrapping up at work, so we'll see. Good luck to everyone still running and thanks to @art_vandelay for hosting!

    No score from me. Runes are too rare to get them from waves and Baal only.

    471 total runs. Most in Arcane with a couple trips to Chaos Sanctuary
    At around run 400 I respecced from Nova/ES to Vita/Lightning because I kept either aborting due to mana burn or dying. Not good to erase any xp gained running. Haven't died since the respect but took a bit to change up play styles.

    One decent rune from a chest drop:

    I can't even be mad at anyone, I haven't done any runs for this in over a week and played Throwbarb instead, oops :D

    @CaseyJones Congrats on the Windforce! I didn't expect that one after four AS screenshots :p

    I posted them in the order they dropped based on the screenshot number :)

    I also forgot to mention the 3 skiller charms:
    PnB
    Bow and Crossbow with +7 FRW
    Barb Masteries with +37 life

    A couple 20 life SCs

    Some 5 unique rings, manald heal or nagels though.

    Decent drops anyway, even a tc 3 Grailer in Tancreds Hobnails.

    I will be running until Thursday I think. After about 15 hours my first Barb hit 93, so I changed character. I finally rolled a decent map last night, now time to get on with the last 5h
