    When I updated on Friday, Blackwell was Gul Ist away from Enigma.

    Unfortunately, I didnt find spare time during the weekend, so it remained unfinished.

    Monday:

    Lets run couple of times and see, what is going to happen.
    Screenshot062.jpg

    Motivated with that first Ist I cubed all runes from Lum up. It left me with Ist Um to finish the Eni. Lets continue with some LK.
    Screenshot063.jpg

    Damn, so close. Give me that last UM!! I tried the countess few times, but it took so long, so I switched back to LK. After some more ( +- 200 runs):
    Screenshot064.jpg

    Yay, way more than I needed. That was my 6th Sur, so all the cubing was completely unnecessary. Good bye LK, I dont want to see you for some time now!
    Screenshot066.jpg

    Some cubing I actually like:
    Screenshot067.jpg Screenshot068.jpg

    And here we go! It definitely deserves personification! First ever (since release of d2) SP selfound Enigma.
    Screenshot069.jpg

    Lets take it out for a spin (need to farm meph now, for some eq that couldnt be easily found in LK). Hmm, first Meph, first chest on lvl 3. Are you kidding? This could have saved like 4 hours to me. But not mad at all :)

    I think I will stay at Meph to farm some Wizzardspike, Suicide branch, Stormshield and possibly Arre/Guillame now.

    Then I am going to respec to optimalizace stats and go full exp mode :)

    Today is a bit of an odd one. First I got to 50% to level 97. I was on a roll and the experience was coming to me like waves to a beach. Alas, disaster strikes. Screenshot082.jpg

    It must have been quite the combination of modifiers for Achmel this time, it was done in a matter of seconds. I don't have a corpse retrieval kit, and the loss is about 20-25 million XP. At least I'm not playing hardcore, and the loss isn't too big of a problem. I had been thinking about how I would feel if I died, and it was more of a comic fail than actually annoying.

    I did find an interesting item along the way, now I have a plan B if level 98 gets to be too annoying some time in the far future: Screenshot086.jpg

    I also made a nice armor for my merc, but truth be told it feels no different than Duriel's Shell did:
    Screenshot084.jpg

    In closing, and for future reference for people going to do any farming with high projected fire damage Steel Shade is a fantastic tool for keeping the merc alive. I can't remember who wrote it, but I think it was Gripphon. The merc has not died since I equipped it on him, and he used to struggle a lot with the Bartuc wave, and at times I had to help him out at the Ventar wave, but as I said now he feels immortal (as long as I stay alive, hehe).

    my username is Enigma on another forum (after The Riddler, not the item), so I'm always confused when people discuss Enigma xD

    @Ashenshugar Sorry to hear about the death, hope you'll make up for it quickly! Why no eth bugged Forti though? :rolleyes:

    After MFO and with lots RL stuff going on I played considerably less recently. Scarce D2 time was spent leveling other characters and doing twinked MF Pit runs here and there. Now I picked up Ric again though and hope to progress him towards 98 soon. I'm also considering entering with a HC Druid. I tend to push characters a bit too much, so I don't think he'd ever make 99... but I never had a Guardian even, so that's something to tick off the list.

    2 x Ist, 1 x Sur, and 1 x Gul all in one day. I am so green with envy, I look like a leprechaun! :D

    Klaus approves. Fire? Windy? Wolf? HUNTER?!

    --

    Well I promised an update, so here it is!

    Post-MFO life has still been decent in terms of drops. The level started off well with green CBs and Sacred Armours. Not entirely useful, but it leaves a glimmer of hope for more useful things to drop soon. His time in the AT has only just begun, so there's nothing but time to find other goodies. Speaking of other goodies:

    [​IMG]

    Nice! Klaus' MF has now moved up to 271 while maintaining his killing power.

    I decided to test out the Drifter Cavern to see if I could make the xp work there, seeing as there is only 1 FI-type monster. The testing didn't last long as it's quite clearly not as efficient xp-wise, which is no surprise since it's an alvl 84 area. It also has the benefit of being way more dangerous which is a no-go for HC, but I did get an eth Horizon's out of it!

    Code:
    Horizon's Tornado
    Scourge
    One Hand Damage: 14 - 435
    Durability: 33 of 33
    Required Level: 64
    Required Strength: 92
    Required Dexterity: 54
    Fingerprint: 0x76d5f66f
    Item Level: 84
    Version: Expansion 1.10+
    Unidentified
    20% Chance to cast level 15 Tornado on striking
    +50% Increased Attack Speed
    263% Enhanced Damage
    +150% Damage to Undead
    Slows Target by 20%
    Requirements -20% Ethereal
    
    With that experiment over it was back to the tunnels for another green SA and CB and a Lightsabre right as we hit the halfway mark. Grailers have been semi-steadily coming in, and it continued here with a nice Stormspire (and Tal's amulet in the same run!). Just as Klaus was approaching the 2/3 mark of the level his grumbling over the uselessness of his drops finally paid off:

    [​IMG]

    Awesome! Been waiting for that one for a while (bit of an understatement there :p) so it's nice to finally have it drop. Another useful drop soon followed when he found Wisp Projector. Not only is that the final piece of jewelery I need for my overall grail (and is obviously a grailer for Klaus), I swapped some charms and the other ring around to incorporate the WP and its light absorb and now Klaus is sitting at 298% mf! Nice!

    A Demonhorn's Edge and Stormshield dropped to round out the level, so Klaus now sits at 96. :) Pace will probably slow for a little bit now. I have some otehr projects I want to work on, and I've started getting a bit sloppy trying to push for extra XP. No real NDEs, but some poor decision making and unneccessary risks being taken, so I'm going to take a step back and run him a bit more casually for a while. Better slow and alive than quick and dead!

    Skillers:
    - Hexing
    - Graverobber's (cubed)

    Other finds:
    - 2x Um (1, 2)
    - Pul
    - Mal (from the chest)
    - 20life/17mana SC (nice!)
    - a couple unsocketed, eth Threshers/Gthreshers for potential future re-rolls.
    - Ormus Robes (Chain Lightning, a grailer!)
    - 5os eth Colossus Sword
    - this eth Sacred Targe. Is this useful for anything? Exile maybe?
    - a few other eth uniques for the grail.

    So DirkStruan has slowly slogged his way thru many Hell Countess and Pit runs, but finding very little of note. The big finds in the Pits were Aldur's Advance boots, an ethereal Small Crescent (that rolled 4 sockets in the cube), and the following rare Reinforced Mace, which replaced my crafted Naga and is my current weapon:

    As nice as the Tower map was that I had, other than the back-to-back Pul & Um the Countess dropped those runs dried up so I went back to questing in an effort to make it to Lower Kurast and try and at least get the Mal rune I need for an Oath. The following has been my gear for that trek, and what Dirk is currently equipped with as he starts his LK runs:

    I keep the War Axe with the Amp Damage on switch for Physical Immunes, and the Edge stays in my stash for gambling. I managed to improve my charm situation a bit via rerolling with Perfect Gems, but they obviously still need work - hopefully I find some upgrades once I start my LK runs. It's been slow going with a fair bit of kiting, especially around the PI's. That War Axe I shopped came in handy in the Arcane Sanctuary, making it a little easier to deal with all the ghosts. The worst part was the Tomb - that one alone must have taken a good 40 minutes or so thanks to the Unravellers and the PI ghosts and the Urdars. Both Andariel and Duriel dropped complete rubbish, but that's been par for the course for Dirk In Act III, I was unlucky to have a map that did not have the Great Marsh bypass, but lucky in that there were no Gloams in the Great Marsh. Sszark packed his usual wallop, but I slowly lured out his pack one or two at a time and then fought him on my terms (a la Sun Tzu). I also got lucky in the Flayer Dungeon, as there were no dolls to worry about.

    Eventually I got to Lower Kurast, but it only had one campfire. Sadly giving up my Tower map, I started rerolling and came upon a pretty good map on the 3rd roll but found the boss pack density to be too much for an untwinked Paladin relying on FRW to do his LK runs, so I went back to rerolling. About a half hour later I think I've finally found a nice map that is a little less chaotic (will post tonight once I take a screenshot). I've got my fingers crossed, hoping that these LK runs will bear a little more fruit than the 2,500 or so that my LK running Whirly Barb has completed over time. :oops:

    I just noticed that my blocking is a little low, so I'm going to pump Dexterity with whatever unspent points I have. I've made it this far with that darned rare mace, but I don't foresee taking on the Council in Travincal without at least equipping an Oath. And I'm way to rune-poor to consider a Call To Arms as something to plan for in my near future....

    Well, it was almost a whole day of farming, lets say something about 8 hours... I was really determined to finish that Eni, so I pushed it hard :]

    Fun thing is, that I found out, that I need to get some rest from that barb, so I played my HC bone necro a bit. Will come back to barb as soon as I will feel into it.

    As promised in the previous post, here i'm to introduce my third character (still counting Espada, but thats for very distant future :D)

    My third chars name is Attila, and not surprisingly, he is Barbarian (WW build)...So far he reached LK in Hell, where he will remain for very long time, because his equipement is tragic at best :D

    Journey to this point has been painfully slow, and even dangerous sometimes - especially at Act 2 Hell with lots of PI monsters...

    My personal rules for this character are the same as always:

    1) HC - thats obvious i guess
    2) Using ESC button to avoid death is not allowed
    3) Respec is not allowed
    4) Avoid Mephisto as much as i can - in other words, only one kill in Hell difficulty

    Not sure how far i can get, melee characters are far slower then casters, but having melee and caster on the list is something i really wanted for change...

    Attila reached lvl 78 btw

    @RIP Very nice choice for another HC character. Very brave as well ;). Good luck !!!

    Btw, your gear doesn't seem that crappy to me. If you can find the runes to up that Butcher's Pupil, you already have one very strong weapon. Other than that more life leech would be a very good thing.

    Edit: also, kuddos to you for doing this a third time. I'm on my second character and I swear, I won't ever run LK again for gear I already have, but have to get again because I'm foolish enough to go the untwinked route on a project like a 99er. After 3000 runs in with my Hammerdin (who is slow compared to teleporting characters but fast otherwise), I definitely came to that conclusion. I just don't find it fun.

    Well, actually its only second time because Necromancer never leaved Normal difficulty...Kaira (my sin) already done 4400 p7 LK runs, if that matters...

    Personally, it might sound very strange, but running LK with Barbarian is even more interesting, any drop can have huge impact on survival/killing speed...overall building melee character takes alot more time than building caster, and this fact i like a most...after all, this quest is about having fun, while planning/playing You character, not just about reaching one last level, don't You think?..at least for me :D

    GL ;)

    Nice progress everyone!
    Probably a Windy.. I'm kind of a cookie-cutter wimp, and likely shouldn't go too crazy with my first HC attempt. :)

    It's definitely not about the last level for me, as that is the only one where it's truly all about grinding xp (barring some good drops you're likely to get given the time spent), and I agree with you on the fun of planning and playing the character, being able to get an item upgrade almost the entire journey. I also don't mind repetitive runs as such. But LK running, as good as the rewards can be (runes, jewelry, charms, rares, ...), is only clicking some chests, not actually killing monsters. I can't really bear much of that, especially if it's main purpose is to get the runes to make something I already have.

    So I still plan on doing some chest running for test purposes like RoF and the Act 5 ones at some point. Who knows even some LK runs if I want to see how hard I can push for example a 200% fcr Barb or Sorc, or to get some more skillers, charms, whatnot. But other than that, to assemble yet another set of HotO, CtA, Enigma. Right now I'd say no.

    Right now I feel like, if I am going for another 99er attempt next to Neverland and ShouldBeEasy, it will be twinked, to see how hard and fast I can push it, and also because of the reasons mentioned above about gathering the typical runewords in an untwinked environment. I don't completely rule out that I'll start another untwinked 99er at some point. but if that's the case, right now I think I'll just try to assemble gear while running whatever target I fancy, be it Meph, Pindle, AT, Pits, CS ... It will take far longer that way, I know, but at least I'll be killing monsters.

    To each their own of course ...

    @ffs I don't know how to eth bug. Actually I don't even know what it is.

    @T72on1 I think you are clever to mix it up a bit. It is always good to clear the head a bit.

    @Pb_pal That belt is always such a good find.

    Eth bugging ... google it. It's easy, it's ok, it's worth it. But at the same time ... if you don't do it, you'll be fine too ...
