MF/RF Tourney - Results

Congrats to all winners !!! Apparantly it was a very tight race in all categories, and for most spots, which makes this a very exciting tournament. Except for areas obviously, where @NanoMist absolutely crushed the opposition (again). Zod alone shows who's the boss, but his other drops are impressive too, to say the least. I guess we'll have to find some kind of 'Nanomist vs SPF' tournament, where the SPF actually stands a chance to begin with ... :rolleyes:.

As for myself, winning the category is always nice of course, but unlike other tournaments I participated in, it didn't really matter to me to be honest. I was purely going for xp, and since I knew @Yng had the same motivation in this tournament and @Neksja only partially joined us, also with xp as biggest motivation, there wasn't much to win or loose for us. Still I'm very happy I participated in the first place, as this tournament gave me a very good and much needed incentive to actually start running Neverland again. I 'only' have 100M to go now, and ever since crossing the 3400M mark, I have a very good feeling about reaching that lvl 99 goal, so yeah, the tournament really did a lot for me.

Early on I was killing Ghost type monsters and bigger mobs, especially those around Nihl, to increase my chances in the tournament. However, as time passed, I already had a better score than I expected and I realized that monsters other than the Ghosts had too small chances to get good rune drops, I decided to completely focus on xp again, with the exception of Ghosts, which I kept on killing. This resulted in 3 - 3.1 M/hour xp, compared to 2.5 - 2.7 M/hour early on.

I might keep this setup for the rest of Neverland's journey to 99, as run times are only a tad slower, if any at all, I loose some 100 hitpoints but gain 150% mf or so.

Ok, pics ... this is my overall top 5 haul.

Also got a Mal and quite some other Hel+ runes, although mainly Dol and Io. S/U was quite nice too, but nothing spectecular like the DWeb or DFathom I got from Nihl earlier. Neverland did find a grailer for her though, but I realized too late (since she found most of my grail, but this one was no overall grailer) the Infernal Cranium actually was one, hence no screenshot. Also, the eth Felloak I posted about in the running thread was a really nice drop, netting me 3 eth TC3 items from Nihl.

I found two of my S/U qualifiers in the first hour of so of running: HHG and Wolfhowl.

MF_RF2108 - Wolfhowl.jpg

The next hour was a very good one, with 2 Hel, 2 Dol, 1 Lum and 1 Mal already providing a rune top 5. Next to that Razor's Edge, Arachnid's, The Gladiator's Bane, Djinn Slayer and Arkaine's Valor. Unfortunately the game crashed due to the Delirium bug, so I couldn't pick that up. Alas, as it would have been a slight upgrade for my S/U score.

MF_RF2108 - Arkaine's Valor.jpg

Around the 3 hour mark Ondal's Wisdom and Schaeffer's dropped in quick succession. Apparantly I didn't take a screenshot of the Ondal's though. The Schaeffer's made me smile, as just before it there had been a discussion in the running thread about how scoring of uniques which can have 2 different outcomes for 1 and the same base item, wasn't correct.

At 3:50 an Ist dropped

MF_RF2108 - Ist1.jpg

not long after that followed by Halaberd's Reign

MF_RF2108 - Halaberd's Reign.jpg

After some 7 hours I got my highest rune, a Vex from a Ghost pack.

MF_RF2108 - Vex.jpg

Not long after that I also got my second M'avina's Bow, a Lem, an Andariel's Visage, and I hit 3400M xp.

Then I had somewhat of a dry streak, although I still got an Um ...

MF_RF2108 - Um1.jpg

... and a Tomb Reaver (1os unfortunately), the eth Felloak and my third pair of Sandstorm Treks.

As time went on, I started focusing on xp more, so drops decreased somewhat. Still I managed to get quite some good items in the last 5 - 6 hour stretch. First a 27% Mara's, which was an upgrade from Neverland's 23% one, so she started using it right away. Then Bonehew (another one would drop near the end), the Infernal Cranium grailer, M'avina's Embrace, fourth Credendum, Pul, Reaper's Toll and Jalal's.

Second Ist dropped on Friday evening, around the 15 hour mark. For some reason I thought that the tournament finished that evening, so I was happy to find another top 5 rune so close to ending.

MF_RF2108 - Ist2.jpg

When I found out I was wrong, I decided to do one more hour on Sunday evening, mainly to get to that -100M xp milestone. Fortunately, next to a Lightsabre, the second Bonehew and Gimmershred's, I also found an Um, providing a slight upgrade for my rune top 5. Something I only found out when submitting my score, as I forgot that Um > Mal when it comes to scoring, despite the fact that it is a lower rune.

@ffs Thanks a lot for hosting !!! Looking forward to the MFO. I'll be a bit rusty for that one though, as I'm going on holiday first :p. I'll probably spend that entire 2 weeks thinking about how to beat Nanomist though ;).

Fine, I'll post a top5 haul pic as well:


Haul pic doesn't look too impressive when you don't have much to show for outside of top5. I guess I could have thrown in couple of outside of top5 TC87s I found, but still, not too amazing. I'm happy with my results, don't get me wrong, but I am hoping for a proper haul pic for MFO, where I have to split my finds to multiple pics! One can dream, eh?

Grats to the winners, though I can't say I'm too surprised be any of them! Seems I snuck in to the top 10 with half a set completed, so I'll take it. ;)

As I mentioned previously, RL kinda got in the way here and I only managed just over 10 hours. Disappointing to not complete a whole set, but them's the breaks sometimes. Not a whole lot to say about my set, other than getting lucky right at the end with both Guls and Boneshade/Azurewrath coming in the last hour or so of running to push em into top 10 territory.

All running was done with my Poison necro in the Pits. Almost dinged 96, but unfortunately ran out of time at the end. On to the pics!


Top 5 S/U:
Boneflame
Executioner's Justice
Steel Pillar
Boneshade
Azurewrath (sorry phar)

Top 5 Runes:

The REAL goodness of this set comes in non-qualifying finds though. Have a little gander at these skillers that he found along the way:

The fact that two of them are his exact skillset is pretty bonkers and that other one will look very tasty on my baal java, so I'm officially happy with my goodies in this tournament. ;) Thanks of course to @ffs for hosting, and to all the runners for all the motivation and cool finds to be jealous of.

Well done, SPF. Very jealous of all those sweet finds, especially the several Tal Armor's posted earlier.

I've never participated in an MFO of any kind. I just don't think I have the stamina. In HC it takes me about 20 mins to clear WSK, but maybe I'll have a decent character for it in the future.

Nothing too exciting roll-wise, except that Ghostflame. Eth Earth Shifter was funny. I already have Eth Astreon's, Eth Mang Song and Eth Death's Web so my Eth TC 87 grail is making nice progress. Eth Titan's is always nice too.

Well done, SPF. Very jealous of all those sweet finds, especially the several Tal Armor's posted earlier.

I've never participated in an MFO of any kind. I just don't think I have the stamina. In HC it takes me about 20 mins to clear WSK, but maybe I'll have a decent character for it in the future.
WSK is quite hard. Take an easier target for MFO, like Pindle, AT or Pits. Since mf runs are done on p1, they should be relatively safe, even on HC. High end characters have up to 500% - 700% mf, but even with 200% you get a lot of S/U, which allows for plenty of defensive mods to be taken on gear.

So yes, we'd love to have you in the upcoming MFO. Even if you are slower than the rest, you'll never know what you'll find. And such tourneys are lots of fun !!

Congratulations to all participants on achieving so much XP, so many useful items, and so many Grailers. Kudos to @ffs for devising a tournament in which every participant was a winner, regardless of point standings. :)

Congratulations to all the winners. I guess I should post a haul picture as well.


The Astreon's I found while play testing the map, and the Ohm came from the super chest, so neither were included in my score (and both would have really helped a lot). Still, I thought it would be a shame not to show them. The hydra bow is 4os and 12% ed, so I could make a pretty cool runeword with it some day. Despite coming up with a so-so score, I think my first tournament was a huge success. It was a fun way to motivate myself to do some magic finding and get a good chunk of XP. I'm looking forward to the MFO coming up at the end of August.

Congrats @NanoMist , amazing score! And all the other winners and everyone who found nice things too! And @Pb_pal , very jealous of those Fungals. I've ever only found 4 (none with life ofc)! And yet I have like 40 Acrobatic GC's. This game sometimes :(

My own score was nothing to write home about, and @ffs seems to have made the wise call to keep my qualifiers secret to everybody ;) All in all, I had pretty rotten luck, as I kinda predicted when I found Ber, Cham and CoA just before the tourney :mad: Out of 57 Elite S/Us only 4 were tc87 (The Grandfather, Ghostflame, 2x Griswold's Valor), and none were 10+ pointers.

I ran for 19 hours, but might as well stopped at 10. Last 9 hours were absolutely abysmal in terms of drops. 4 of My top 5 runes dropped during first 5 hours, and last Gul around hours 15 didn't call for much celebration. Had fun though, got some levels and other things, good amount of crafting supplies, all that jazz. Like I stated earlier, my pace was pretty easygoing, runtimes around 1:30-1:50. Picked up lots of magic and rare items as well, but found nothing super good. Some close calls though.

I'm happy I contributed. Now I have something to look towards in MFO. Still at grail -6, so I'd be pretty happy if that number would change. Could use some luck. When it matters.




Found the Ohm and Jah in quick succession after the tourney, Steelrends a bit later. Who knows what would've happened during that last hour, if I could have made it. Timing really is everything :confused:

Ah sorry, didn't realize your top 5 didn't show in the top 10 @Burgomaster3, will include them later! See you in the MFO, definitely I'm hoping for some better high quality luck myself when it comes around! ;)

Congrats to all the winners! For me almost all of my qualifiers came from Baal himself, I think only one of the 20 qualifiers I found came from the waves group. I was most disappointed that in 10+ hours of running my best rune was an Io.

Not good at haul pics (how do people get all of their finds in one screen shot when there is too much in their inventory?), but here is the qualifiers I did get:
Demonhorn's Edge
Spike Thorn
Messerschmidt's Reaver
Eaglehorn
Horizon's Tornado (grailer)
Windhammer (x2)
The Gladiator's Bane
Trang-Oul's Girth
Taebaek's Glory
Wraith Flight
Jade Talon
Laying of Hands
Sazabi's Cobalt Redeemer
Ondal's Almighty
Viperfork
Ethereal Edge
Shadow Killer
Arioc's Needle
Dark Adherent
Immortal King's Stone Crusher

Grats to the winners and big thumbs up for @ffs for hosting this!

Somehow I'm not surprised NanoMist winning the alvl 85 ++ category :rolleyes: Still, amazing job finding Zod and a +27 pointer within 20 hours! Most people won't find neither during their entire D2 "career" :)

As I said in the running thread, I couldn't make it this time. I actually run some, but very little. Shame, it was fun with my Pit Nec during those few runs.

Something I found:

If only it did have ctc amp... I'd use it on A1 merc for one or two of my rare only sept chars

Edit: epic skillers, @Pb_pal ! Slightly jealous!
