    Lower Kurast (Hell): Run 101 - 200

    I finished another set of 100 runs, and these were the results:

    63 Grand charms (only one skiller: Necro Poison & Bone)
    61 Large charms (the best one has 30 life, 6 to max and 28 ar)
    61 Small charms (7% mf, 7% mf with 10 mana, 3% mf with 11% fire resist, 4-9 cold damage wit 11% cold resist)
    52 Jewels (blegh... all crafting material at best)

    Uniques/sets

    Berserkers headgear
    Hwanins justice
    Arctic belt
    Skin of the Flayed one
    Blastbark
    Tancred's weird x2
    Cleglaw's pincers
    Sanders riprap
    Stormstrike
    Aldurs rythm
    Kelpie Snare
    Ripsaw
    Nagelring (17% mf)
    Ravenfrost (18 dex)
    Spirit shroud
    The Rising sun
    Culwen's point
    Civerbs cudgel
    Gheed's fortune x2 (both with bad percentages)
    The Scalper
    Aldur's advance
    Mara's caleidoscope (Woohoo!!! I finally found one, it has 26% resist all)
    Frostburn
    Bloodletter
    Skewer of Krinzitz
    IK maul
    Steel clash
    Rogue's bow
    Angelic sabre
    Earth shaker
    Berserker's hatchet
    Many green rings, but I no longer bother picking them up

    Runes (still not bothering to pick up anything below Tal):
    Hel x4
    Tal x19
    Amn x3
    Sol
    Ort x7
    Ral x4
    Lum x2
    Thul x3
    Io
    Shael x3
    Lem
    Pul

    And 124 Perfect gems. Oh, and I should not forget these nice rares:

    Entropy Touch Ring
    +11 to Dexterity
    +18 to Attack Rating
    Fire Resist +9%
    Lightning Resist +19%
    Cold Resist +9%
    Poison Resist +9%

    Dire Finger Heavy Bracers
    Defense: 64
    +1 to Dexterity
    +43% Enhanced Defense
    Fire Resist +23%
    Lightning Resist +18%
    3% Mana stolen per hit
    Repairs 1 durability in 33 seconds

    Spirit Grasp War Gauntlets
    +8 to Strength
    +5 to Dexterity
    Fire Resist +18%
    Cold Resist +24%
    3% Life stolen per hit
    +2 to Martial Art Skills (Assassin Only)

    I am finding not half as much skillers as I'd like, but the finding of that Mara's caleidoscope more then makes up for that imho. Note that both the Mara's and the Rising sun were missing from my grail, so that's another reason I was happy with the results.

    @DX-Crawler: you are 99% right, but it should have been: SHE is doing the runs on players/8. :D Oh, and on hardcore too, in case anyone is wondering.

    From the perspective of getting runes though, there's still nothing special compared to running countess.

    Still, once Illiana gets her ber, we'll all be like wow, we should all do LK runs :lol:

    Illiana: I'm curious to how long you take to compile the infomation here. Do you throw them into ATMA stashs and count from there or what? I appreciate the info though and I'll keep it in a document along with all other info in case pple need to dish out stats again :)

    Thanks, Iliana. very interesting stuff.

    By the way, that's one ugly Nagelring!

    Do you know off-hand (or maybe someone else does) how may elite uniques you found?

    Wow, based on the last couple of posts, I think the countess will be getting some long overdue rest!

    Good stuff.

    Illiana, are you killing everything along the way including boss packs or are you just popping everything?

    I kill everything in sight and haven't had any luck with uniques or runes for that matter. Damn my luck ...

    i am curious if you are getting the hollow logs, skeletons and corpses? also how long was your average run, did it improve from 4 minutes in your first 100 runs?

    @Sunbearie: I compile the data by hand. Once I finish a run, I jot down another stripe on a piece of paper to indicate that the run is finished. While my computer is loading (takes a rather long time) I have plenty of time to write down the names of any uniques/sets. Then, when I have identified all stuff and start selling the useless items to Ormus, I write down how many charms/runes/jewels were found that run. The gems I count once they are upgraded to perfect and then moved to my Perfect gems stash.

    @Quickdeath: In the first 100 runs I found Thunderstroke, Bloodmoon, Spike thorn and Bonehew. There were no elite uniques found in this series of runs.

    @Bill_n_Opus: At the moment I'm killing all bosspacks, because I'm pretty close to levelling to 90. Once I get to 90 I don't think I will, that'll speed up the runs considerably.

    @Foddercannoned: yup, I'm getting all the Hollow logs, skeletons and corpses too. I've been doing so many of these runs I practically know by heart where all the stashes etc are located, so my average time per run has increased somewhat, but it's still close to 4 minutes per run. But like I said, once I reach 90 I will no longer be killing monsters, so that should speed things up. (And of course, a faster computer would help... The loading time is loooong! :D )

    Don't mind DX, he gets confused sometimes. This is great info you are providing. How many runs are you going to do? Are most of the items from chests or are you including monster drops also?

    At the moment I have no idea how many runs I'm going to do. I initially started doing them because I'd like to have some good runes and skillers, and this far I haven't found many of either, so I suppose I'll be doing a lot more. ;) Practically all of the items are from chests/hollow logs/corpses/skeletons, but I have seen lots of good elites drop from the bosses, but unfortunately they were not unique or set. I think I can now safely say that Lower Kurast isn't a very good place to magic find.

    I find the place very frustrating. I actually 'try' to kill things there, but most of the monsters start running away, half way into the fight.

    I'm in the process of running super chests of LK-Sewers2/Countess to compare.

    My theory is this, in the short term < 1000 runs, the countess will win, in the long term, 1000+, a Gul or higher will tip the scales to LK.

    It's interesting to see what you might get if you pop everything. Hopefully, you get a nice rune soon.

    That's my thinking as well. Countess, if you have a good map, is probably more reliable over the "short term".

    However, getting that one high rune (if that ever happens) instantly makes LK/Sewers2 worth all the while as it usually facilitates making that runeword.

    That high rune is usually the roadblock to a fantastic item.

    As everyone knows I blather about getting a Ber rune. I calculate that i'll need 128 Mals to cube a Ber.

    I'm not going to run Countess that many times to get those many Mals (not including Ists) to cube them because it's just not that feasible.

    *edit*

    I just did another LK run wtih a Vigor Pally and "around the campfire" one chest popped a Dol and El rune and on the other side a bucket popped a Lum rune. It's these runs that keep me going!

    From what others say you need 3 more rounds to get i high level rune...

    GO, GO GO...

    If you made a new stash for every 100 runs you can use fara/flavie to get the numbers in Gems/runes/uniques & sets in a report is easier to get the numbers.

    An other advantage of the LK runs is that any map is a good map (the WP is always there and after a few runs you know how to hit the chests fast.

    You can keep a good memph map and still do LK runs.
