Help for Self-found Level 99 Project

D2 SPF,

I decided instead of starting a new character, I would try to finish a project I started years ago. Getting my patriarch (Thread) Frenzy barb to 99 totally self-found. I lost my stash and only had some crappy MF gear on him so I am rebuilding.

Questions:.
  • Getting to 99 will be very slow. But it will be near impossible with my current gear. What gear/runewords/etc should I focus on to allow me to run WSK easier?
  • I am assuming an Enigma will be mandatory to complete this project. I did around 100 countess runs and 100 LK chest runs to no avail. Is there any advice to farming this runeword?
  • Does anyone else have any experience with an entirely self-found 99 project and would like to share advice?

Thank you SPF!

Edit: I realize my post makes it sound like I'm assuming 100 countess runs would be enough for an enigma. That wasn't my intent. Just asking for advice on best way to farm it.

There's a selffound untwinked 99 project thread right on the front page. It should be pretty hard to miss.
