MFO Progress Thread

There were a couple typos in the score sheets so please make sure you have the correct ones. I've removed any bonuses for the low item of split item types. Your score sheet is correct if Lightsaber scores the same as Hellslayer.

With the great crash and occasional hiccup, I'm also posting all important info at

If you have any questions. Please email me at [email protected].


Baal: Thyiad - mfo(at)chrisclarke(dot)co(dot)uk - or PMs

Please email your supervisor regular updates. Someone asked recently if daily updates are required. My answer is no, BUT I personally think it more enjoyable to see daily update to the rankings.

Start date: February 24 2007
End date: March 4 2007

Total time - 9 days.

Now Good Luck

Addendum - If you're familiar with the MFO, read this for rule changes

I'm removing the restriction on posting finds. The simple fact is they do get discussed here and there so this just evens the board. No one is required to post their finds and the official progress rankings will still be order only.

Also, I'm limiting the pickings to 2 items max from a single person. So, if first and second each take an item from player X, third place cannot take a third item from that player.

There are a few other slight tweaks, all highlighted in bold.

- Hell Baal

Also for those interested in what happen last time:
The Signup
Results (If you're wondering what this is all about, check out some of the screenshots in this thread)

Rules for Teams:

- Please only sign up for team if you are fairly certain you will be able to participate, your team will be depending on you.

- You may have up to a maximum of 4 members in a team with a minimum of 2 members (no 1-man teams)

- Each member must first be registered under the Singles MFO first.

- At least one member must participate in each of the Singles categories.

- One member may run more than one category.

- Multiple members in a single category is allowed. However, only the highest score of 1 member will be taken into account.

Eg. Both Fred and George are in Team CB and running Baal. Fred has a score 150 while George's is 130. Hence Team CB's score for Baal will be based on Fred's ranking.

- When registering your team here, simply state your team name and its members.

- The team with highest item score in a category recieves 10 points, 2nd in that category receives 9, 3rd gets 8, etc. So maximum score for a team would be 40 (1st in all 4 categories).

- As of this moment, team play is just for bragging rights, participating in a team will not risk any of your MFO finds any further.

- If you do not have a team currently but wish to participate on a team. Please sign up under "Availible for teams", this will let others creating a team to know that you are available and I will create as many teams as possible with those that remain at the end.

I've got a question.

Do the items still have to be unidentified?

I tend to ID everything I find, so I'm afraid I'll disqualify a good item. It's hard to kick an old habbit. :smiley:

Why is Kira's Guardian is listed in the Baal scoring sheet but not in the Meph one? I know Meph is capable of dropping it.

Oops, I must have forgot to remove it from Baal. I'll correct it soon.

Kira's Guardian is a confusing item. The Tiara is the middle (i.e. exceptional) class for Circlet and Coronet types but it can only drop in Hell, is in a tc full of other Elite items and has a higher rlvl than Griffon's Eye. I protested in past tournaments by including it but had removed it more recently and missed it in the Baal score sheet.



I have finished for today, have made several hundreds of Pindle runs:) I found quite nice items, total of 16 qualifiers, with some grailers included :azn:

I am quite interested in other people's chars (especially those running Pindle :cool: ), could we present them here...?


Diabloii.Net Member
I have been baaling more than 12 hours today, having found several nice items(nothing extraordinary, though).

I have been running with a pure lightning sorceress, starting at clvl 89 in the morning, now she is close to 94. She has got only around 290% MF, her equipment being oriented towards safety and killing speed rather than MF.

I am planning to spend whole day playing tomorrow as well, because i am leaving town on Tuesday and will not be back until the end of MFO. I hope i will be able to do a few hundred more runs before i leave.

Made a start on Memphy. Well re-rolled the map for a while actually. And played with the gear. It's amazing how much stuff you forget when you share gear, isn't it?

I'll post and update on the Baal category as soon as I have more than one update. *cough*


Diabloii.Net Member
I'm running Pindle with a L91 (should be L92 today) Frenzy Barbarian on P1. 495/706 % MF on normal/merc kill, 37 % hork. I may drop the MF and raise the hork % later, but I'm reasonably happy at the moment with the horking rate.


I am running Pindle with my amazon called "Mazlik", she was build as PvP bowazon (after reading awesome PvP guide written by Sint Nikolaas and other famous PvPers). Its my first "real" (low end) PvP char in my DII life, although I haven't dueled with her yet. For leveling purposes, I gave 20 points to LF. During this MFO I would like to level her to 90+ (currently 89, started at 87). She is wearing quite typical MF equipment (PTopaz Shako, PTopaz Skullders, Titans, Rhyme, Goldwrap, 40% Chancies, 49% WT, 30% Nagel, magic 32% ring and 41% amu.

Until now I made at about 900 runs on P1, and I am quite lucky :azn: I've found not only some nice gralies, but also nice rares and Pul rune.

I haven't started yet :( I'm not feeling well, spend all of saturday in bed with fever. Today it's a bit better but not well enough to powerplay.


Diabloii.Net Member
First update PM'ed to Thyiad... Slow start really, not as many runs as I'd like this weekend, but you get that.


Diabloii.Net Site Pal
My tunnel runs started out ok, but I hit a serious dry streak after a few hours. The only qualifier I got in the last 6 hours was Naj's Puzzler. I doubt I can win with that one. :rolleyes:

Alvl 85 update -

Diabloii.Net Member
Only two e-mails for far, so here is a small update for Meph:

1. LD50
2. Thyiad

I did check through my spam folder and didn't find any updates, but if you e-mailed me and I didn't list you here, PM me with your e-mail and I'll add it to my address book to keep it out of the spam folder.


Diabloii.Net Member
As for me, i'll start running tomorrow. Tunnels at P8 for the experience and it's just more fun. Can run it in about 2-3 minutes. Pure blizz sorc doing around 6,5k blizz damage carrying about 250% MF.:grin:

So nothing to report for now.



Diabloii.Net Member

My sorceress reached lvl 95 a few minutes ago, so i am finished for today. I had a few nice finds, but i will have less time for MFing from now on.

Btw, after seven failed set spiderweb sashes i finally saw a unique one on the ground.

Alas, the game hates me more than i thought:cry: :cry:
