    @art_vandelay I think 1.07 blood ammy FRW is bugged. Set to just 1, iirc.

    @art_vandelay i suppose 1.08 Highlord’s could be an option on amulet slot, keeping the FRW and gaining +1 skill/LR.

    Disgustingly good drop/4 free days for you means I’m probably ****ed for Pindle lmao

    @Yng That's an option indeed and a great way to use it since for every other character that likes HLW it's kinda worthless because they either need IAS or DS.

    I'm going to run a bit into the night and then send my update (that seems to be fine by PhineasB's post...) . I hope to find other such treasures :)

    On a side note: There should be points for right amount of sockets/right ethereality status! :mad:

    1.08 Blood amulets should be able to get the full 15%FRW, but lose the chance at +3skilltab. Also, 1.08 HLW still has the FRW of 1.07, but also has the scaling DS of 1.09+. And you just thought it was all the rare jewels... :D
    /shamelesstimetravelplug


    In MFO-related news: lvl85 runners have good reason to be afraid... after the 1337 drops I have collected this week, I'm essentially guaranteed a spot in the top 18. Its friggin epic...

    Results sent to @DiabloTwoinDC. Let me know if they must sent elsewhere due to your keyboard issues.

    I tried to switch the 6 Ist weapon for Oculus again.
    occi.png
    By doing so I lost 100MF (but gained some through level ups) which leaves me with 564MF. Then adjeff is 2,295. A 0.005 increase :eek:

    I generally try to be more careful picking stuff when I time my runs and sometimes I S&E on stuff like a Battle Sword and I always regret it... so when some Sharkskin Boots dropped during this set I naturally picked them up!
    Code:
    Waterwalk
    Sharkskin Boots
    Defense: 186
    Durability: 8 of 8
    Required Level: 32
    Required Strength: 37
    Fingerprint: 0x31d3dcdd
    Item Level: 86
    Version: Expansion 1.10+
    Unidentified
    +20% Faster Run/Walk
    +210% Enhanced Defense
    +100 Defense vs. Missile
    +15 to Dexterity
    +54 to Life
    +40 Maximum Stamina
    Heal Stamina Plus 50%
    +5% to Maximum Fire Resist
    Ethereal 
    That's some rare timeloss right there...

    @Yng Oh you're talking about those? Nah, they're not ethereal ;)

    @Albatross In the Hall of Records Thread you mentioned a 'display bug in GoMule' regarding MF, can you explain what happens there?

    @art_vandelay i'm sure albatross will confirm or correct, but I think its that gomule doesn't display partial set bonuses to mf, most obviously relevant is the 65mf from 3 pieces of tal rasha's. But afaik the mf amount gomule displays can be taken as correct if you dont have multiple pieces from the same set on.

    Thanks to everyone else who has sent one so far

    @art_vandelay like @Luhkoh said, GoMule has a bug with MF granted by set bonuses. Haven't tested if only "gold" bonuses are bugged or green ones, too. Should be easy to check with partial Tancred's.

    I just couldn't understand how people racked up so much MF on their sorcs, until I figured it out when I started using spreadsheets to calculate my MF.

    Also congrats on the new record, I presume you'll be updating the HoR after the MFO? :)

    I'll have an official go on my new AT map, too. Should be able to get the average down to 31ish and if I luck out on spawn density it's possible to go sub 1.7 adjeff. Still not enough to beat Gripphon's new barb record, but it's a good improvement on my last entry.

    Had some time off today and used most of it to grind, but still counting on the weekend to get to at least 3k.

    The 12s "fastest" run happens when you get your sorc killed early :(

    Update (belatedly) sent...sorry for the delay, work has been pretty brutal this week, and free time has been scarce... looking great for the weekend, though, so maybe I can work my way up from the back of the pack :p

    I had a lucky day 1 (though with nothing too too crazy) and since then things have felt uneventful, despite decent finds, because they didn't improve my score. Lol shouldn't have found so much stuff right away :p

    But anyways i did 350 runs fri - sun. And 225 more (so up to 575 total) through yesterday. If I only do my planned 20 hours it will be like a total of ~725 runs. 1000 sounds so much better. Lol we'll see.

    @Luhkoh I’m actually off tonight and Sunday but my girl works too and I have a 2 year old monster so he dictates when I get to play.

    E: I’m actually leaving work soon, so I’m gonna do the thing where I pray to 128 different gods that he hadn’t napped yet today so I can squeeze in an hour or two before dinner etc. This little guy has no chill, his average time going to bed I’d say is like 1 in the morning the last month or two LOL.

    I haven't found anything that improves my score since that fateful drop on wednesday and now it finally happened again :)
    And in a strange turn of events I found the perfect weapon to go with this piece of armor and they both rolled exactly right for something I wanted to try for a while...

    @Luhkoh You work in an office? What the hell is your excuse for not playing D2 for 8 hours a day? :D

    @Albatross I will sure update the HoR at some point but I might try to revisit some other runs first. That timesave from removing -direct -txt seems to affect every run after all.
    Did you try that as well and did it have a noticeable effect on your run times when you did?

    First Seven Days Update -- A85, Pindle+ and Baal Categories
    I've received all but one update (and still no word from two others) for A85, all but one for Pindle, and all but one for Baal. Thanks to everyone who sent their updates!

    Things are interesting in all categories, with a tight race up top across the board and any drops over the last weekend being potentially decisive. Feel free to send updates if you haven't and I can update this update :)

    A85
    There was movement up top, with some nice drops coming in. It's still close between the two new leaders, and then an absolute jumble with after that, with even an incremental improvement potentially shifting the final results. I remain excited to see how this category unfolds! Current rankings (without information about point totals) are in the spoiler.

    11. mir (no update)

    13. ffs
    14. Gynli
    15. phar
    T72on1 (withdrawn)
    Joosh, Grape (no updates)

    Pindle+
    Things have tightened up at the top, and a big drop could definitely swing the final results. Current rankings (without information about point totals) are in the spoiler.

    2. art_vandelay
    3. Babyhell (no update)
    4. Yng
    5. Dagaz
    6. Darkoooo

    Baal
    As with Pindle+, things have gotten tighter at the top of the leader board, and the winner of this category is definitely in doubt. Current rankings (without information about point totals) are in the spoiler.
    1. PhineasB
    2. Vildecor
    3. Pb_pal
    4. jjscud
    5. Jamie (no update)

    Teams
    The Afterthoughts retain their early lead, but there's plenty of room for Kittens! and Heroes of Find and Magic to improve their scores and close the gap.

    * * *

    Good luck over the last three days, everyone! Please remember to include readouts of your top 5 for the final update, and please send as soon as you finish running on Sunday (or let me know as early as possible if you don't have an improvement). I'd like to get the results up Monday am before I head into work, but no later than that evening (I'm US West Coast), so please don't forget to send your update or a quick note if there's no improvement or you didn't run at all.
