This is the only rune worth mentioning in all those runs, the remaining ones were: 3x eld, 2x ith, el, tir, and nef.


And no, there will be no intro post :) I hate those, and besides, when I made one in 2002 the forums crashed shortly after, I do not want to take chances again…

So, what do you think of the above??

Yours very truly indeed :D

Thanks for the results ... and welcome back to the SPF!

Those 500 runs looked like my runs of late. Some good items but most of the time it wasn't that great.

Then it started to pick up when I started doing p8 runs so I managed to get some items from the pack as well.

I did a couple of Pit P8 runs with my MO Sorc today and the first run netted me a Tal's Armor. Weird huh?

Hah! 1 unique TC87 and 2 unique TC84 in 500 runs? I would take that. I just did 1K Pindle runs for MFO and the results are much worse.

About how long did these 500 runs take you? Regardless, some pretty nice finds! Welcome back to the forums, as well! :thumbsup:

@Comeoutandplay- Yikes, now you got me worried. I'm making a sorcie to do basically the same thing, and I don't even particularly care for sorcies. At least on /p8 I was too busy ID'ing charms and jewels to be too bored.

I would consider those drops very good. You got quite a few EUs and a nice rune, too. :thumbsup:

thanks for the feedback guys!

@comeoutandplay
I was surprised myself how well I tolerated those runs. I guess I was bored of area runs such as the pit :)

@bill_n_opus
true - maybe upping the players setting will help - it makes little difference time-wise as far as killing pindle is concerned, however having to type the players command makes the run almost twice as long :D p8 is very doable though...the ko rune came from pindle's minions so I might consider p8..

@hrus
thanks for feedback. I'd also say the results were not too shabby...


@glen
one afternoon more or less (more...) I'd say - or 7 beers :D

UM

the player setting doesn't change unless you exit from the game, that is, click Exit in the screen which has the "Single Player" / "Battle.net" etc buttons. keep this in mind, since you can find your underpowered/low level build facing demons in a P8 game. (the same applies for the /nopickup command iirc).

thanks for the info, but really, I have been here for yerars...
I know all about the players command, or at least I like to think I do...
anyway - thanks for the input...
i guess I will change the players settings once I hit lvl 91...its players 1 right now...and I will be posting the 501-1000 results shortly...
regards,
Mike
