    Please meet Ric, an untwinked 99er Necromancer. Following HelpYourself, an untwinked 99er Sorc I finished earlier this year, he is my second untwinked 99er, the 12th completed character in the untwinked 99er challenge, and AFAIK the SPF's first untwinked 99er Necro.

    Here's his final moment of glory, followed by a summary of his gear, loot and progress along the way:



    Gear and Build(s)

    Starting off with the gear and build used for running Nihlathak (also shown in the end of the video):
    Code:
    Hoto [email protected] (eth Flail)
    +2 Necro, 10% FCR craft amulet
    Shako, socketed with a -5/+4 poison facet
    Enigma BP
    35% Spirit
    BKWB
    Dwarf Star
    Arachnid Mesh
    TO Claws
    Aldur's Advance
    
    Switch: +4 BO CtA (eth Crystal Sword), Spirit
    
    Merc (Might):
    - Andariel's Visage, socketed with 15 IAS, 28% ED jewel
    - Infinity (eth CA)
    - Fortitude (eth bugged Great Hauberk)
    
    Inventory: 2x P&B Skiller, assorted life/resist/mana charms, one FHR SC
    Skills: Max PN and synergies, max Golem Mastery, rest CE (18 at 98)
    
    Corpse recovery kit:
    Smoke, +6 PN White, +3 BO CtA, Shako, Mara, 2x Dwarf Star, Rhyme
    
    The above is what he ran for the last two levels from 97 to 99. Before that he was a Fishymancer (and will be going forward) using more or less the following gear, in particular for Pit and Baal running:
    Code:
    Beast Double Axe
    +2 Necro, 10% FCR craft amulet
    Shako PTopaz
    Enigma BP
    35% Spirit
    2x BKWB
    Arachnid Mesh
    TO Claws
    WT
    
    Inventory: 7x Summon Skiller, assorted life/resist/mana charms
    Skills: Max CE, RS, SM, GM, some Summon Resist and AD

    He really found an abundance of high runes. Apart from the runewords he made for himself (Enigma, Infinity, Beast, Fortitude, Hoto and 3x CtA), these are the Ist+ runes he has left to play with or has in the meantime passed on to other characters:

    Code:
    1x Ist
    1x Ohm
    6x Lo
    2x Sur
    2x Ber
    4x Jah
    1x Cham
    2x Zod
    
    EDIT: This is where they ended up.

    With gear and drops out of the way, this is the brief version (well, sort of) of his journey:

    The Beginning

    I first considered taking a Necro into the 99er challenge in November 2017. My Sorc was mid-90s at the time and I thought it would be nice to have another character to go back to for a change of scenery. I can't remember exactly whether I named him after the mad scientist vibe from Rick and Morty or after the Walking Dead character (because, you know, dead stuff). What I do know is that his journey started with a typo – I really meant to call him "Rick". :rolleyes: But 99 takes a long time, and there was no time to lose, so instead of creating another Necro and adding a "k", I went on to charge into the Blood Moor. ;)

    The plan from the outset was to go with a Summoner build at first, given the ideal gear mainly consists of relatively common S&Us and runewords, which could all be farmed rather reliably. He pretty much followed the plan the whole way and was played as a Summoner until 97.

    I don't remember much from the initial playthrough as he advanced to his first pit stop in Hell LK, which is when I entered him into the 99er thread. His first goal was to farm Enigma of course, and with an early Ber drop before even having a Harmony bow, he was off to a quick start. He had enough to make his first CtA (+3 BO) shortly after. Some dry spells followed, but he made consistent progress towards Enigma, with further rune drops reported here and here. I mostly focused on my Sorc at the time, so progress was slow in the beginning. But following a lucky streak and a funny "long distance battle" with @PhineasB (who had started running LK for Enigma with his Necro as well), he had assembled the ingredients for the ultimate game changer in February 2018, and made his Enigma.

    He then went for a mix of Pit, Pindle, Meph and LK runs in order to get a few key pieces of S&Us. Around this time he also made an eth bugged Fortitude, considerably increasing his overall power due to the importance of the Merc setup for basically every Necro. Around this time a crazy thing happened when within ~6 hours of Pit running he found two Zods (and also made his Beast).

    Getting the Missing Items & Baal Boredom

    When @Grape hosted the 2018 RFL, I chose to run with Ric for two rounds of the tournament instead of going with more optimized rune finding characters. I was hoping to farm Infinity, the last major runeword he needed at the time. This worked out almost perfectly, collecting a suitable base and the runes for Infinity except for one Sur from running Cows during the first round of the RFL. Updates and non-qualifier drops posted here and here, including a +2 Necro/10 FCR craft amulet that he used for most of the time until 99. After the first RFL round ended, he went back to LK and quickly got the last Sur to make Infinity. The remaining core items he was looking for were Arachnid Mesh and Andy's Visage for Merc, so I continued running the Pit with him for the last RFL round in hopes of getting them. Alas, while finding a lot of stuff (think: MFO garbage), he was out of luck with these particular items. After RFL, he switched back and forth between Pit runs and Baal waves, including Pindleskin after raising the army there, until hitting 95.

    At 95 it became increasingly hard to justify running the Pit any longer in terms of XP. While I still mixed things up from time to time, I almost exclusively moved to Baal waves. After a few XP gain tests, it turned out that Ventar runs were most efficient at first. He made his way to 96 this way and then started to include Baal. At this point, Baal runs were driving me almost crazy (IMO this is really the dullest experience in D2, I'd take LK over this any time ;)).

    I was still missing Arachnid Mesh and Andy's Visage – both of which I considered crucial in increasing XP gain efficiency in later stages. So at one point I decided to take a welcome break from Baal runs and go on a killing spree against Hell Mephisto. After ~800 runs he finally had both items, plus his first eth Titan's – an item I've been hoping to get for a long time (he would later get a second one from Pindle). He then went back to Baal, having his core gear assembled. Shortly after he socketed the Andy's with an IAS/28 ED jewel and made a Hoto (though not using it yet), while making his way to 97.

    The Final Grind

    I was constantly testing all sorts of runs in hopes of not having to run Baal. After simulating different approaches with twinked Necros, it turned out that running Nihlathak provided pretty much the same XP gain as Baal for 97-98. However, it made sense to stick with Baal for safety reasons. While I continued running Baal until 97.15 because of that, I suddenly decided I've had enough and switched to Nihlathak. What I found the most effective Necro strategy against Nihlathak turned out to be quite simple: Have a strong Merc, spam CE and don't die. :p Despite having found only one P&B skiller at the time, I respec'ed to PN which I found was the way to go (at least without many skillers). With his new target providing refreshed motiviation, Ric quickly moved onwards to 97.3 and 97.5, i.a. picking up a Cham along the way.

    When MFO came around, he went on a break for a while until I picked him up again in October, moving to 97.7. He was welcomed back by Nihl with these nice drops (including Mang Song's Lesson) and more goodies to follow.

    Soon afterwards he hit 98, as good drops kept coming, including a perfect 45 life Burning GC and his first +1 skill ring with BKWB. While he was far away from breaking any XP gain records (in particular in comparison to my previous character getting some ~4.2-4.5m XP/h), I was nonetheless quite happy with his pace at ~3.4-3.5m XP/h when I ran the numbers and recorded a few runs:



    As far as safety goes, he did have a number of NDEs, but got away by the skin of his teeth most of the time. There were two deaths for 98-99. One I'm still not sure how it happened (likely missed the BO cast), and the second one in classic Nihl running fashion, namely courtesy of those "working as intended" Viper clouds. At least he recovered the corpse in both instances, and picked up a second P&B skiller and a few other things (as well as these).

    In November I hosted a little MF tourney and participated with Ric to get him on track to finish this year. Despite the second death occurring during the tourney, he did fine overall and managed to get to 98.5, with his tournament haul not being too shabby either, i.a. picking up a [email protected] Mara's. Things became more and more hectic at work towards the end of the year with little time to play D2. Still I managed to squeeze in a few runs here and there. Slowly progressing, Ric hit 98.66 and 98.8, and in the meantime improving to a +4 BO CtA with his third try. The last few weeks in December though, RL was extremely busy, and he had to wait for the holidays to hit 98.9 a few days ago. I took a few breaks in between all that holiday feasting to put in the last ~10 hours over the last few days: He hit 99 today with a very strong finish in terms of drops, including a perfect 15 IAS/30 FR RJoF, the elusive Astreon's Iron Ward (overall grailer, putting me at -1 with Tyrael's remaining) and his second BKWB.

    The Future

    Same as with my Sorc, Ric will likely stay untwinked and at the very least serve as my go-to Fishymancer for testing purposes. :) While I started a third character in the 99er challenge, a "strictly melee" Paladin currently in Normal, making 99 with Ric will probably be my last major D2 project for quite a while. I decided to quit my job a few months back and will now take it easy for a while, fly out to sunny places to go backpacking until starting a new job in spring. :p For better or worse, I doubt I will have any opportunity (or desire even) to play until then.

    There are one or two Mat/Pat projects on my list that I hope to wrap up before I leave. In any case, I'm sure I'll be back at some point! :)

    Thanks...

    ...for reading, and in particular major thanks to the whole 99er crowd – too many to name or single out, and really everyone being active in it provided the necessary motivation for me to do this... again. ;) Thanks for the support and discussion, it was a fun run!

    Great job @ffs and very cool to see the Necro's progress and completion! Good inspiration for my untwinked necro. Pestilence is having the same experience with +skill rings, with 0 part way into level 97. Very much appreciate all the testing and theorycrafting with the necro. Once again, congrats on your second untwinked 99er!

    Also, I hope you enjoy the vacation :)

    Terrific job, tremendous write-up !!! It was a lot of fun following Ric's journey.

    You will surely be missed having an active 99er runner, but taking some time off before getting a new job sounds like a very solid plan !!! I hope you'll still follow the SPF and the 99er thread in particular from time to time though.

    <3 CE battles with nihlathak. Still one of the most fun characters I've ever done but mine died.

    Congrats!

    Well done!! Great write-up and drops. It was definitely fun to follow Ric's progress in the 99er thread and awesome to see the culmination of his journey here.

    LK more fun than Baal? I think you have had one too many CE's to the head.

    Nevertheless, a nice approach on the necro as the previous ones were all summoners. Enjoy your time away from work!

    Congratulations! Running Nihlatak for so long, it's so dangerous... And then make 99. Nice finds as well, so many runes... But the perseverance and dedication are the rarest, even here in the SPF. gg!

    Thanks all!
    Yeah, I kept track of his updates and milestones along the way – so it was easy to put the pieces together after it was done. ;)
    I'm sure I will! Though likely much less than this last year. But like I said I hope I'll be able to finish a couple of D2 projects before going on a hiatus. :)
    Seriously, if I had to go all the way to 99 at Baal as you did, I don't think would have made it. And I really do enjoy LK more! At least there you can watch a movie or something while running – and ironically it even drops better. ;)

    I'm not entirely sure yet about what to do with many of his leftover runes, but will post the results here soon!

    Awesome, big congrats!

    Never imagined Necromancer could do it with that efficiency for the last level! Very well-done, yet another example from you how it should be done.

    And what a speed overall for this character. Some crazy good drops as well. Magnificent job, enjoy your extended vacation! :)

    Tremendous job, and thanks for including the bit about Baal runs vs. other ways to level once you hit the mid 90s. My necro GordonChen is now into the 90's, and what you posted will be very useful to me (well, except the part about switching to Nihlathak - GordonChen is HC, and thus I have no desire whatsoever to investigate these Viper Clouds). :p

    What made you decide to not include CS runs? Seeing your army bottleneck in the twists and turns?

    Not really, thanks to teleport. :) (Enigma for non-Sorc is generally a requirement to make it all the way IMO, but for Fishymancer even more so since it enables army positioning in the first place.)

    I tested CS runs quite a bit at 97, but concluded it was worse XP than Baal or Nihlathak runs. With a godly shrine map it could be similar in terms of XP, but it's more dangerous, and the IG dies too often even with max GM... Overall I couldn't make it worthwhile, at least with the gear I had for Ric.

    Nothing of substance to add but wanted to say congrats! You must be sick of seeing exploded corpses by now...

    I am also avoiding Nihlathak :p

    Loads of 99ers without teleport :D
