    Wow, awesome. And starting tomorrow, too! (well, 27 hours). Time to do some (quick) testing :)

    Sorry for that I tried to find possibilities how to make better score list, I hope all players have enough time to do their 20 hours

    Great timing, I've been levelling up another cow-runner. I'm excited...

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    So, I tried my javazon, which I've used for cow running to great effect in the past, and I was quite pleased with her. I figured my light sorc might be even better with proper equipment though, as her mobility is much greater etc, so I regeared her and fired her up.

    She could barely touch the cows on p7, and that's with pretty nice equipment! "Barely touch" is relative of course, but it made me realize how ridiculously powerful Lightning Fury is in the cow level. I'm definitely going with the trusty ol' zon.

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    Damn, I don't know till when I'm on vacation. Perhaps I'll be back on the 19th so I will have some time, maybe not covering the whole 20 hours, but still.

    Count me in. :)

    (because I have to get off now, since I will travel, can someone add me if there is a <code> table?)

    Cheers!

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    bassano, look at this image. Use those settings, and you will for instance see:

    (on p1, you can use other player settings if you want, the ratio will be the same)

    Ko: 1/47400
    Zod: 1/2560876

    So Zod is 2560876/47400 = 54.03 times more unlikely to drop, so if Ko is worth 1 point, Zod should be worth ~54 points. Note that this will mean that Ber will be worth more points than Jah, for instance, but since it's a rarer drop, I think that's how it should be.

    Edit:

    I actually have the drop odds of the runes Mal - Zod in my spreadsheet already, so calculating the Ratio was pretty simple: Click me.

    I guess this will be pretty worthless if you don't use Mal as the lowest qualifier, so maybe you won't have any use for it :) Oh well, Ko seems like such a low qualifier for me though.

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    Here, you are, 1.13 Ko based scoring

    1.0 Ko
    1.3 Fal
    1.9 Lem
    2.6 Pul
    3.8 Um
    3.8 Mal
    5.6 Ist
    5.3 Gul
    8.0 Vex
    7.6 Ohm
    11.4 Lo
    10.3 Sur
    15.4 Ber
    13.8 Jah
    20.7 Cham
    54.0 Zod

    I guess this means I have to start playing again.

    Edit: Decimal added, luckily that was how I had done the original.

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    Fabian: Thanks a lot , I will use a Ko as base , even I know it is a very low rune it will caused bigger points on top runes

    jjscud, fabian: someone can put one more number after decimal point to that numbers in jjscud post? With one number more will be better I think

    thanks to both I will change scores after that

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    I'd really hope that 20 hours of cow running would produce at least 5 runes over a Ko for even the most unlucky of participants. I'd be interested in seeing the results of even the lowest scoring players.

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    DO not forget that someone will not have all 20 hours and could be even some partecipant still in 1.12 as I am e.g. :)
    But I am really interested too for results.

    Wait... This starts...now? :p

    I have cowazon armed and ready. Oh yes and rule should be "no cubing runes", since Zod > 2 Cham runes.

    Code:
    [url=http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/7161/018jah.jpg]Jah Rune[/url]
    Can be Inserted into Socketed Items
    
    Weapons: Ignore Target Defense

    It's my belief that a 1.12 player is handicapped by at least a factor of 2 on the point scale provided.

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    Recovering Wirts legs must be included in total run time correct?

    Also, can they be muled with a teleporter, or must they be run by the 'zon?

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    That's part of a run, definitely. Me, I just start the clock when I sit down to play, and stop the clock when I quit. I did consider hoarding a bunch of Wirt's Legs before the official timing started at midnight, but found that to be a bit too cheesey (and possibly outright against the rules) for my taste :)

    Re: MF league 2010 - round 5 - Secreet cow level - rune hunt

    I'm going to start hoarding Wirts legs/tomes tomorrow. It definitely counts as part of the 20 hours, but I'm going to use a different character to get them. I use a 200FCR (dual wiz-spike) barb. He has 20 in faster walk, 20 in howl, and can get the leg faster than any other character I have. I'll use him to get a stash of 100 or so and then cow it up. I'm planning on running with my javazon, my fire sorc, and a new cold sorc I've been trying to optimize for the job. So far, she's not meeting my expectations, but we'll see how the week goes...

    I wish I had the kind of dedication to make a wirt-leg-getter :( kudos.
