    I guess you don't want to reroll your maps, but just in case you didn't know, you can buy 3 socket BPs from Fara on Normal.

    I know that ... I just always forget :p.

    No rerolling now, but once I find that last Sur, I will, and that is when I'll make the Enigma anyway, so yeah, that is an option.

    Due to fun-ness, Pestilence is half way to level 96, taking a little less than six hours for 95.2 to 95.5. He was warming up for the MFO Warmup tourney. :p

    So he rolled maps as he went early on, doing 10 or so runs on promising maps to see if it was a winner. He’s finally settled on a map that’s decent in terms of boss density and stability and very close to Cloisters WP. But level 1 is a bit large and level 2 sometimes spawns only 2 boss packs. It also occasionally (1 out of 20 runs?) spawns with almost no bosses on level 1, which is weird. But we decided to stick with it because we’d gotten comfortable with the runs.

    Drops were solid this stretch, starting off with Ist #3, and then a top-5 S/U of Horizons, Shadowdancer, Tomb Reaver (2os), Stonecrusher, and Gris Shield (he also found another Stonecrusher). Also this ring with useful mods on every roll except the stamina (wish it had been mana leech!):
    Code:
    Corruption Circle
    Ring
    Required Level: 43
    Fingerprint: 0x787f7760
    Item Level: **
    Version: Expansion 1.10+
    Unidentified
    +120 to Attack Rating
    3% Life stolen per hit
    +24 to Life
    +6 Maximum Stamina
    Fire Resist +24%
    13% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items
    With a Pul (#4 from the Pit), Lem, and Ko, he would have a credible MFO Warmup score just from this ~6 hour stretch. And with the Mal, Ist, Stormspire and Gris Caduceus posted earlier from the first part of this level, he’d have a nice score indeed with a bit over halfway through a set!

    So I’m hoping he’ll be competitive. :) He tested out different gear combos, starting with the 125 FCR setup, but quickly focused on the 75 FCR breakpoint with Shako and dual Nagel (25/19 MF are best ones). Given the upcoming tourney format, it’s hard to pass up the 74 MF from Shako, and that frees up the extra ring slot for additional MF.

    With some rare boots (MF/resists) and charms, his resists are barely positive on fire and cold and barely negative on lightning and poison. But that’s plenty safe for Pit runs with >2400 life pool after BO. Only danger is mistakenly landing in a fanaticism pack with mana burn while amp’ed – but an S&E sorts that out easily enough.

    He’s at 317% MF for 75 FCR breakpoint. Going for 125 FCR would still have 224% MF, so I think he’ll do that when he hits 96, part way through the 20-hour set. Should be close to 50/50 split of the set, so it will allow a decent comparison of results under two approaches.

    He will rest here until the tourney kicks off next weekend. The 20-hour set will see him well into level 96, and he will probably stay in the Pit to finish up to 97. Even though it is probably less efficient than CS runs, Phaedrus will be doing enough of those that I’m fine with slightly longer for Pestilence to get these levels because it allows a change of scenery.

    Terrahork is currently level 8_8.5, I won't bother to update the table since at this point that's only a couple of hours of grinding!

    I don't have any big drops to post, though I did at last manage to roll a 5 socket GPA (the first two came out 2 and 4 respectively). Seeing as the runes for Obedience are so common I decided to make one in the GPA and test it versus the Thresher.

    Obedience GPA.jpg

    I've found that I like it a lot. For a start, it means I don't have to look at the Thresher model, which I find actually tilting. But in a more practical sense, the narrower damage range gives more consistent life steal, and the added range is extremely useful- particularly against Mana Burn (I can just hit them from behind Razan) and in the The Pit (where 2/4 mob types run away constantly). I did some testing with the experience meter just to make sure it wasn't pure confirmation bias, and was pleased to find that over the tests I did the GPA gave slightly better exp/hour than the Thresher.

    I have also been testing my map and gear setups for the MFO warm-up.

    The gear question essentially comes down to Insight versus Obedience. Insight lets me also wear a 30% Nagel, for a total of +191% MF. However, I have found that the runs are significantly slower (5-6 mins) with this setup versus a +138% MF setup with Obedience (3.5-4 mins). Insight also has the downside of being less safe due to lower resistances etc.

    As such, barring any major finds between now and the start of the tournament, my starting setup will be:

    Helm: Lore
    Chest: Tal's Armour
    Amulet: Angelic
    Ring1: Angelic
    Ring2: Rare AR/Damage/ML
    Weapon: Obedience GPA
    Switch: Spirit/Angelic Sabre
    Gloves: Sigon's
    Belt: Sigon's
    Boots: Sigon's

    +138% MF, +188% for Hork on switch.

    The map I have rolled is definitely one of the best I've ever had. It contains zero Fallen camps, which is pretty much ideal as they are super inefficient to clear on this character. Screenshot below. You probably can't tell from the real professional quality, but I used MSPaint to annotate all of the potential Champion/Unique spawns...

    Worra is slaving away at nightmare meph to find a decent bow to bring her through hell. It's quite a grind just killing meph! Luckily her Valk is strong enough to tank and do most of the damage as well :rolleyes:

    Anyone else have any idea of finding a better bow to take her through hell? (No ladder runewords)

    If You really want to run Meph, then p1 and highest possible Crushing blow and dmg on merc is probably the key, as You will be doing much less dmg then him...Other options are Eldritch and Pindleskin, but second might be dangerous...

    Anyone know if it's possible to roll a cruel mat bow of evis using the flawless gems cube recipe?

    A quick update before the MF/RF tournament kicks off. :)

    Another set down, another 1000 runs without a Sur. Though an Ohm is technically a quarter of a Sur, right? *sigh*

    3351 - Mal
    3560 - Mal
    3634 - Ohm
    3671 - Pul (corpse)
    3980 - Pul

    Weirdly similar to the last set, just with a 2nd Mal instead of that Ist. No NDEs this time though, so that's a bonus! I'm not super happy with this map as the path to the huts is a bit clumsy, so might flirt with the idea of re-rolling if I get ambitious.


    Skillers:
    1x Lion-branded (up to 5 of these already, should have made a hammerdin! Sorry @T72on1 :p)
    1x Fanatic
    1x Spiritual
    1x Elemental of Sustenance (+21 life) - Nice! That makes two so far, nice to get a good 2nd mod too.
    1x Mentalist's


    Other finds:
    - Ruby (39%ED) Jewel
    - Steel (33) SC of Vita (18)

    Same as @Pb_pal: Pre-pre-MFO-warm-up tourney update for Ric. :) Ran another level with him and hit 97.

    15_1_97.png

    I continued to run Baal waves, but somewhat mixed it up with including Pindle, Lister and Baal instead of always going for Ventar (which for him was the most efficient for 96-97 at least).

    So I'll have to run the numbers again for Baal vs. Lister vs. Ventar vs. CS/Diablo for 97-98. Testing that is about the only thing I'm looking forward to though, because I'm afraid I have a good idea what will come out on top, and I'm definitely not looking forward to more Baal running right now. :) So unless I end up running him in the pre-MFO warm-up tourney (might do that if another Baal runner is needed), I'll be glad to run different targets for a while. With MFO coming up soon as well and not a lot of time to play at the moment, he'll probably take some time off now.

    Noteworthy drops since last update:

    Alma Negra #4

    15_1_Alma Negra #4.png

    This rolled +3 skills, but was eth. :mad: Well at least it adds to the eth grail.

    15_1_eth boneflame +3.png

    Eth Titan's, bit of a worse roll than first one but still better than non-eth. Been looking for the first eth one for many years and two is obviously great to have for switching.

    15_1_eth Titans 2 ID.png

    15_1_fcr LL life MPK ring.png

    15_1_IK armor.png

    15_1_Jah Pindle.png

    15_1_Nat Claws.png

    15_1_Ondal.png

    Another good life/resist SC, he's found a ridiculous amount of these (17 so far).

    15_1_sweet life LR sc.png

    Other than that just garbage. The only other drop of note was a plain +3 Poison Nova wand that might get cube socketed in hopes of getting a pretty good White base, as PN is on the list of things to try when switching to Nihlathak for 98-99. I'd rather not have the 5/6 chance, but sacrificing his last socket quest seems overkill...

    So, typically terrible Baal wave drops. :rolleyes: Highlights were the surprise Jah from P1 Pindle and his (and my overall) second eth Titan's which I thought was very cool again.

    Keep up the good progress everyone!

    EDIT: After checking @NanoMist's XP tables again, I realized that P1/P7 Diablo runs are a valid option for 97-98. While P8 Seals or P8/P7 can overwhelm Merc and IG, P1/P7 runs are rather smooth. Comparing his run times, it would be pretty much as efficient as Baal with an XP shrine on the Diablo kill. This is not going to be the case all the time obviously, but with a good shrine map it seems like a small enough disadvantage to do that instead of those mind-numbing Baal runs. He may only take small break after all. :)

    Ouch @Pb_pal - Phaedrus has found only two and he’s up to level 98.1 now :( Speaking of which, I guess it’s time for my pre- pre-MFO tourney update too.

    Phaedrus picked up the first tenth of the level on CS/Diablo runs. As noted in an earlier post, he rolled another 3-shrine map and tested out different approaches briefly (straight p1/p7, straight p7, hybrid, and hitting boss packs in CS/not doing so). In a couple timed 10-minute sessions, he was never on track to be over 2.4M/hr.

    But he was a fun break from LK/Pit runs, usually in 20-40 minutes chunks. He ultimately settled on p1/p7, switching to p1 while teleporting to de Seis and then back to p7 on the way to Vizier. Depending on mood, he hit finger mage and megademon boss packs along the way (or didn’t), and picked up about 18M under this approach.

    Then last week I got a little tired of the p-setting changes, so went with straight p7 runs . . . and I found the slightly added challenge of de Seis engaging (and not really a risk). In general, he teleports south of de Seis’ spawn, casts two hammers, and then targets de Seis for the telestomp as the pack moves toward him. He sometimes needs to teleport one more time to finish him off (popping a big purple to be safe), with only about 1-in-25 messing up and needing to retreat to clear things safely.

    He also hit boss packs for added drops over this last stretch. I’m definitely enjoying the runs and thus not focused too much about XP/hr. But I'd estimate it's still over 2M/hr. So I hope this mindset keeps up for a bit before I feel the urge to focus on efficiency. :rolleyes:

    Drops have also been nice, starting off with Gul #4, followed by a bit of a dry spell before Boneshade, Arkaine’s (+2 skills), and Spirit Keeper fell, with Vex #3 (from a boss back) mixed in. Then the highlight of the stretch:
    98 (Ber).jpg
    Gul #5 and Gul #6 (from a boss pack) dropped toward the end, along with two Ums. Other notable finds were Biggins, Infernal Cap, Greyform, and Tancred’s boots (Hotspur would have been great though) for TC3s, Wolfhowl, eth Veil of Steel, Horizon’s, and many others, including quite a few for my eth grail.

    I made it to my goal of level 90 before the tournament!

    Level 90.jpg

    As with the last few levels, most of the grinding was done on Pindle+Eldritch runs. I started on p3, but was able to up it to p5 thanks to a nice upgrade from Pindle:

    LoH.jpg

    Pindle and Eldritch dropped a few more vaguely interesting items, most notably Gul #2 from Pindle. I guess Zod and an ethereal GPA can replace Tomb Reaver as my ideal drops now...

    I realised that I was giving up rather a lot for my mana leech ring, and as the shrewd amongst you will have spottted- I have replaced my Lore helmet with Tal's Mask that I stole from Razan. He didn't miss it too much though (more on that later).

    This revelation also allowed me to make some pretty substantial gains in my gear setup for the tournament, and this will now be my starting setup:

    Helm: Tal's Mask
    Chest: Tal's Armour
    Amulet: Angelic
    Ring1: Angelic
    Ring2: 30% Nagel
    Weapon: Obedience GPA
    Switch: Spirit/Angelic Sabre
    Gloves: 39% Chanceguards
    Belt: 15% Tal's Belt
    Boots: IK Boots

    The new setup gives me a pretty spicy 237% MF (287% on switch) with a minimal loss in damage, and full resistances other than poison. And the best part of all:

    I did some tests of my Pit map and counted boss/champion packs in chat. It gives 6-10 packs per run, and averaged out at 8 over the 10 runs I counted properly (not a huge sample size, but it seems in keeping with how the uncounted runs felt). Pretty nice! This also dropped during one of my test runs, a nice replacement for poor Razan's recently stolen mask...

    Andariel's.jpg
    It only rolled 8% LL, but seeing as I've only ever found one of these before in all my time playing before joining the forum, I just banged a socket in this one immediately.

    He's now wearing Andy's (15% IAS/AR jewel), Reaper's (Shael), and Duriel's Shell.


    I'm off to Scotland this weekend- our son's first trip to his spiritual homeland! As such I won't be starting my 20 hour set until next week. Good luck to those starting this weekend!

    Good progress ladies and gents. I'm very absent again just now, sorry, but y'know, it runs itself unless @T72on1 starts playing up.

    So, only a little progress on the zon, but exp is coming steadily. I have been considering what to do with the 3os head hunter's glory I found, and finally committed to socketing it. I had a couple of not very good lightning facets floating around as well as a nice ias jewel. The facets were a 3/5 and a 4/4. I figured the -res was more important to me, so I went ahead and used them. The ias jewel has 3 maek on it as well, and is the best I've found so far. Overall, I'll say that p7 chaos runs are a lot faster when there's lots of storm casters, and I basically 1-2 shot most everything else with charged strike, so I'm happy.

    Over a month since my last update and unfortunately I haven't put much effort into this lately, but here's an update nonetheless..

    [​IMG]

    Sophie has reached the 30% mark. It's a mere 10% more than what I had in my previous update so hopefully this MF/RFO event will give me a little motivation to play more often. I've been investing most of my free time (it's not much) in Dota 2. I've actually recently realized that I'm sitting in queue some 5-10m in between matches so I've started running Nihlathak while waiting.

    I mentioned before how I wanted to try rerolling for a map with more shrines but I wanted to wait until I had a socket worthy drop to make use out of the trip to NM (not sure I'll be going back at all for the Normal socket quest barring Griffon's drop) and somewhere around 22-23% I finally got it right with a Vipermagi (4th or 5th try) rolling 33/12. I went back to NM, punched a hole in it, Hel'd my Shako's Um since I have more FR/LR SCs now, and now have +14 PDR for that extra split second to press ESC for nasty Viper situations. Considered throwing whatever imperfect Lightning facets into the 2 sockets but I think the extra survivability and not risking 2.5-10% XP is more valuable. From there we spent maybe an hour rolling maps before stumbling upon this beauty:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's 3 shrines, shortest distance from WP to Halls of Vaught, and NE direction to Nihlathak's platform to maximize C/T efficiency. 1 shrine right next to the platform so you can scout if it's XP on the way to him and check the area for Succubus/Cursed spawn on Nihlathak before popping the shrine to help try to avoid losing it. There's actually a 4th shrine in Halls of Pain (NE of the one next to the well) but it's too far from the route to keep me moving towards the next level.

    Our XP/hour has actually dropped slightly to 3.6m-3.8m/hour but it's not the map's fault as I've been much less picky about which situations I'm aborting and I've started to pick up flawless gems when it's safe. I see no reason why 4m/hour+ can't be pushed with the current map.

    Nothing amazing but I also had a tiny bit of rune luck at Nihlathak finally (he's been quite stingy) with Vex, Sur, and Pul.

    I finally dinged 97!!!
    Screenshot415.jpg

    I was hoping it would happen on Diablo, but a nice pack of Knights worked just fine. Now, if somebody will take me out of the Resting Heroes and place me back in the Questing Heroes I would appreciate it very much. I know that its changed and I will probably screw it up. I will check back tomorrow and if I am not up there I will make an attempt. My plan is to start an Untwinked Barb so I might just give it a go since I will need to be able to update the chart.

    I really need to step up my speed now, and try some Vizier/Infector runs or just quit killing so many regular monsters in the CS. Baal is a possibility and so is Nihl I guess, even though I was gonna wait until 98 to start the Nihl runs.

    I feel like I have some catching up to do on this thread. And it's sad to see Aura in the "Resting Heroes" :(
