    Spirit Frustration

    So I finally found a nice shield for a pally spirit (sacred rondache, 13ed/45res). I was stoked. Now I am 23 spirit rune sets into rolling a 35FCR with no luck. I know the probability for 35FCR but I'm just curious how many spirit sets community members have burned through before rolling 35FCR. So, how many spirit sets have all of you wasted? Just curious.

    3 or 4 for me. DennisKoreanGuy has some serious problems rolling a 35 so he lets friends roll it for him.

    DennisKoreanGuy spent 10+ HRs on Spirit sets trying to roll the 35. He let me roll a couple for him and I got it on the second try. He gave me a HR for my efforts.

    I'm satisfied with whatever roll I get. Although once, a friend of mine used up nearly 50 Sprit sets trying to get 35% FCR in a 45 resist sacred targe, and out of sheer desparation, he offered me a bunch of goodies if I roll him a 35. I did it on the first try, and I got a bunch of goodies to play with.

    Lucky.

    Anyways, I needed that 35 for my Tal's sorc. I mean, it's a 10% increase in kill speed and teleing speed afterall.

    Yeah I'm usually just happy with whatever roll I get for the Spirit. The extra whatever % of FCR doesn't matter too much for me. I'm only looking forward to the awesome resistances and +2 skills anways. The bonus life and mana are just icing on the cake. And toss that in with some FCR, it's like heaven in shield form.

    I'm shooting for the 125 break point on my mf hammerdin without replacing shako or using FCR rings. So i either need a +2 pally / 10+FCR amulet or a 35FCR spirit. I figure I am due to roll 35 about 60 seconds before the ladder resets.

    Although, maybe I should just bribe Evrae to roll it for me.

    After going through 23 spirit rune sets, money might not be an object.

    Personally if I have 23 spirit sets, I won't use them all completely. I will only make the runewords when I am feeling lucky on the day.
    Except the day that I make my Ber Mal Ist Ber, call it a payback from my infinity :azn:

    Odds for a single try are 1/11. Failure after 23 times is (10/11)^23 ~ 11,17%, which is just about the same thing as getting 3 straight tails, i.e. not THAT unusual.

    Your luck is just about normal. Keep trying ^^

    I guess maybe I'm budget. I used a royal shield to get 164 def but on my first roll I got 34%. There's no way i'm rerolling that.

    when you need 125fcr break point, there is no difference of FCR between 25-34. 34FCR do not help, same breakpoint you can reach and with 25FCR.

    Hoto (40FCR), arachnid (20FCR), Gloves (20FCR), Ammy (10FRC)= so total is 90FCR. The last break point is 125. So you need 35FCR spirit. If you have only 34FCR spirit you will have to use one FCR ring, if you have 35FCR spirit you can put two SOJs in ring slots. So 34FCR spirit gives same thing as 25FCR spirit.
