The Untwinked Level 99 Progress Thread, Revenge of the 99ers

I’m some 8000 runs (2 different characters) without a Ber.
Plan to patiently roll an LK map until I’m content and do quite a few runs (a new P8 Vex+ pattern is a personal goal of mine) post 99.

Would drag my balls across a mile of broken glass for that map @ffs has on his necro lmao.

By the way new theory: Complaining helps after 5 minutes.
Theory confirmed:

Um and Ohm dropped on the same run, with the Sur dropping the very next run. He found a Lem and a Fal within five runs prior to that, so I was thinking at least I couldn't say nothing higher than Lum anymore. :) I guess I can still say he can't make Harmony :p

I've had horrible, rotten luck with usable uniques. Needless to say, I've pressed on.

It was actually enough, though I had to cube everything Fal+ haha. I figured why not, will spend more time in LK anyway and will be nice to do some Pit running for some time in between. ;)

Of course missed a couple of gems :)

But here it is!

By the way new theory: Complaining helps after 5 minutes ...
Not a new theory: we all know that complaining helps :). But congrats of course.

Seems like HRs are suddenly raining form the skies. Time to do some running as well. Because you know, I'm complaining right here and now that I haven't gotten any HRs from Nihl in ages :rolleyes:.

@T72on1 Yeah I meant the 5 minute part was new, to me at least. :) Indeed, quite the strong untwinked 99er drops mojo currently it seems!

After making it, I briefly took Ric's shiny new toy on a quick Pits tour of course. Refreshing to do something else with him again. Pits map is OK but not really great. I won't reroll it though since I want to keep that sweet LK map for quite a while, given he needs many more HRs (Infinity, Fortitude, Hoto, Oath and eventually Beast are still on the agenda).

Despite his gear being really cheap except for Enigma, it feels quite effective already. Mostly due to CE just being OP of course. Currently running P3 Pits since Merc + Skellies are not yet strong enough to provide the necessary assistance to CE on higher settings. Gearing Merc well will be a priority going forward, shooting for Andy's + (ebug) Fortitude setup again. Going to mix it up between Meph/Andy, Pits and LK for a while now and see what happens.

Current gear and build if interested (nothing special really)
Enigma BP (duh..)
35% Spirit Broad Sword
Splendor in +2 CE base
+1 Nec/10 FCR/60 life/adds amulet
2x FCR/14-15MF rings
MF/Res/stats rare boots and gloves
+3 P&B Circlet (even though he's a Summoner, I prefer the CE range to his other options atm, also Merc needs his +3 Summoning + str circlet :D)

Hitting 75% FCR and around 235% MF which is sweet for this stage IMO, thanks to a couple of cute rare rings and ammy.

Switch: +3 BO CtA + Splendor

Merc:
Insight CV (non-eth, only 4os elite polearm so far)
Lionheat Cuirass (for str to wear the Insight CV)
+3 Summoning/+20 str circlet (for str to wear the Insight CV)


Build:
20 Corpse Explosion
20 Raise Skeleton
20 Skeleton Mastery
1 other Summon skills except Fire Golem
1 prereqs/every Curse up to Decrepify
Remaining points going to Golem Mastery

He's got a lot of totally wasted stat points in both Str and Dex right now. Still has his Hell respec, not sure if I used one or both prior respecs. Going to run Baal at some point anyway I guess, but for now I'll hold back on the respec and live with that embarrassing stat point distribution. ;)

Did not get much time this weekend, but did manage to push through into NM Act 2. Only finds on the way worth noting were Sanders gloves to match my boots and a Lem rune drop. I made a Malice polearm for my merc which helped a ton to get me where I am now. Lvl 47 NM Act 2. Think I am going to run canyon for a bit to find some better gear. My cold resists suck right now. Will update table next weekend or sooner if work allows. Happy running all. ~Kyndig

Well, I haven't posted in a very long time, but I'm actually still doing this (level 93 hardcore javazon). Here's something of a large update I suppose...

Things have been very slow going since I hit level 91. My bad gear forced me into doing eldritch runs; I must have done thousands of them by this point as I was getting ~100k doing eld on /p8. I couldn't do pit because I have somehow still not found a titan's so my physical damage is not nearly good enough to deal with the archers and my survivability was generally quite low. Similarly, I didn't quite have the gear to do Baal because I couldn't get to the throne; it took me perhaps a hundred attempts of saving and exiting to even get the WSK 2 waypoint. Luckily, once I did get the waypoint I had a very straightforward WSK 3 and eventually I got a throne I could do, leading to guardian after... I don't know, hundreds of hours.

Things have picked up a lot since then. I was able to make a sanctuary, which put all of my resists in a good range. I have a Tgod's and a Raven Frost so I can laugh with impunity at most enemies now. But probably the biggest boost was finding this:


Those resists plus some sorely-needed dr% have allowed me to branch out a lot. I can sort of do /p8 baal so long as lister doesn't roll LI (I have to S&E if he does; similarly, a lot of souls in the throne room makes clearing so slow that it's not worth it), but it's usually not worth it because my mercenary drops like a rock. Instead, I've been running /p8 pits, which, at level 93 is giving me just over a million per run on average. Not exactly fast, but much faster than doing eld over and over again. I still have to skip the archers, but it's fine now as they have a pretty low chance of killing me.

I've gotten some other good stray finds as well, but most of them are not especially useful for this character. The most notable of these is the +bow +38 life gc I found the other day, which would've been a dream had it rolled harpoonist (I'd have been okay with P&M too). I completely lost track of my holy grail count but I'd imagine if I did tabulate what I'd found the number would be much higher.

I've been checking charsi at the start of every game, and today it finally paid off:



I've had a couple of close calls. The first is the classic "critical strike death explosion while amped" where I was nearly killed from full health by a single doll (I think it did 1100 damage). I've been playing hardcore for so long that I should know better than to let things like that happen, but I digress. The only other situation where I've gotten below half was a very bizarre one: I was hit by berserker death stalker and it did somewhere around 800 damage. It scared the crap out of me, mostly because I completely didn't expect it. I'm generally a very cautious player and I haven't had a hardcore character die on me in years, and now that my resists are good and I have some dr% I feel like I'm in the free and clear as long as I don't try to play drunk or something.

...Still looking for that titan's, though...

Congrats on the progres and on that lovely hat !!! It's one I still have to find. O yes, and on the gloves.

Since I'm halfway on my way to halfway (?!) level 99, I guess I can give an update here too.

So what's there to say? Not much to be honest. Runs are going smooth most of the times, but FIs slowing me down prevent me from getting past something like 2.8M/hour xp. Yng pointed me to a nice xp tool, and according to that, I'm always between 2.5M/hour and 2.9M/hour, but usually at some 2.7M/hour or 2.8M/hour.

When it comes to runes, lately things have been very calm. I got a Pul this evening during a short break in our group game, but other than that I haven't seen anything higher than Lum since coming back to this character after my win crash. So hopefully that will improve over time.

Other drops have been in waves, as it usually goes. Some dry streaks, and then suddenly a very good session, finding Demon Limb, 2os Tomb Reaver, Azurewrath, a Trap Skiller, Homunculus, Warshrikes, Dwarf Star, all within some 80 minutes.

Other noteworthy drops during this stretch were a +5/-5 cold facet, a +45 life +2 max dam GC and Titan's. O yes, and these two GCs:

Xul's Gull

Diabloii.Net Member
Afternoon, everyone!

Slow and steady we go - busy weeks haven't allowed much playtime, but Xul's cracked 5 extra levels since the last update. Most significant find since wasn't even for him, but did get me interested on a future project - 195% (or 190, I'll have to check when I'm home and post a pic) ED, 8% life leech Titan's Revenge. Transferred to a mule for safekeeping. ;)

Onward!

Everyone's getting one except for me! This is insanity.

Good progress! Glad the XP tracker is working out for you @T72on1.
Maybe time for some LK @Me2NiK?
I have a good LK map but I find it way too monotonous to do for any extended period of time, especially since I only really get to play for an hour or two every few days. When my gear gets better and it becomes more sensible to farm for HRs, I will probably switch to LK, but right now there are still many relatively common items that would substantially improve my gear and I like being able to gain experience at the same time.

As I've previously mentioned, my javs are terrible: They're +2/+2 rares with very poor base damage and no other noteworthy mods - they even have the default stack size and no auto replenish so I'm spending a quarter of my game time repairing them. Any titan's would be a massive improvement and would also allow me to reclaim about 30 points of vit on a respec. A high roll tstrokes would be good too and a low roll one would make a passable swap for LIs. One of my rings is junk and my amulet is a +2 amazon skills with no suffix. If I somehow managed to get a decent bow before I get a titan's, I could also respec into FA. Like most hardcore characters, I'm also on the lookout for an SS since that would get me to the dr% cap and would mostly eliminate my risk of dying.

Just a suggestion, but you could roll a LK map with 2 campfires + a wep rack with decent drop rate for Ceremonial Javelin. It’s not the best drop rate but you need statistically thousands of runs to produce CtA/Infinity anyway so you’re actually pretty probable to get one by the time you get the Ohm and 2 Ber. (CtA can’t be stressed enough for HC, dice roll packs one shotting you is definitely a thing.)
Best part is you don’t need Titan’s/Infinity to do LK because you don’t need to kill anything and if you kill Council you probably shouldn’t die without CtA. You can be very efficient with Harmony/40 FRW Boots/Stealth alone.

I'd think that any javelins with replenish mod and increased stack size are preferable over +2/+2 rares. Not sure how hard it is to get those, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you will find those Titan's soon. Just stop looking for them. Only then will they drop :).

@Me2NiK as @Yng said racking for Titan's in LK can be a viable option. About a year ago I had an LK map with a Javelin rack and got several Titan's from it. Actually came to regret rolling that map away as I'm still looking for an eth one. Note that racks drop differently if NPCs/monsters are around and to some extent to different routes taken teleporting/running there, so you should run without Merc and ideally find a rack close to a WP when looking for one.
