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

Esc button FTW! I often also hit Esc when I think it could be dangerous to take a moment and check whether it's safe to finish. But generally, can't face tank anything down there with any character, no matter how good the defensive stats... At least IMO it's really about not being afraid to GTFO. ;)

Just had a pretty sick 10 minutes of Nihl running with Necro. Meant to post the next update at 98, but at this pace I'll have serious trouble with the 10 picture limit per post. :)

Rolled +2 as well, but I was happy about the below Druid toy in particular. My first 2/20 for that class:

First of all, congrats to everyone on the great progress and awesome finds!

--

Klaus has made it safely to 96.5!

Experience gain is beginning to falter, so it's time to do a bit of testing with other targets. As Klaus learned last time, the Drifter Cavern is out XP-wise. This time, he'll be looking at some of the bigger targets. Fire is a rough element in terms of potential target variety, but it's always worth a shot to check and see if things can be improved.

For clarity; I did all this testing with my level 94 SC Fire Druid (juuuust in case) and adjusted the XP based on the @NanoMist tables (thank you again for those!). The runtimes should be close to Klaus' though since my SC druid doesn't have Ravelore, but DOES have Phoenix. Should be close to a wash, and it's good enough for testing purposes.

Ventar runs:
Not worth it, even leaving Colenzo at /p1. Technically I can probably get slightly faster overall time here than in the AT, but the abundance of FIs in the Throne make it an absolute headache to clear reliably. Definitely not worth cashing in the Ancients quest for, that's for sure.

Chaos runs:
p8 Seals - Nope. The Infector's pack (himself included) are all unbreakable FI, making it a non-starter for Klaus. The other 2 seals just can't make up the difference.

p1 seals/p7 Diablo - The runs themselves are doable, but the XP is way too slow compared to AT at this point. I'm sure this will change later, though.

Nihlathak:
I only did some limited testing, but it was just too slow. Again, I'm sure this will change at higher levels, but for now it's not worth it. Oh, and it's terrifying for HC.

Conclusion:
Ancient tunnels it is! That's alright though, I'm not sick of them just yet. ;) Anyways, now back to some actual running with Klaus!

An Ist to start off the level, then Elemental Skiller #4 shortly after. The finds continued with Halaberd's Reign, some eth Silkweaves for the grail, Griswold's Caddy (4 sockets!) and a Gul. Then, just as we hit 25% of the level:



Nice! That's a grailer for me, and look at the roll:

Code:
Crown of Ages
Corona
Defense: 353
Durability: 43 of 50
Required Level: 82
Required Strength: 174
Fingerprint: 0x39c677bc
Item Level: 87
Version: Expansion 1.10+
Unidentified
Indestructible
+1 to All Skills
+30% Faster Hit Recovery
+50% Enhanced Defense
+104 Defense
All Resistances +23
Damage Reduced by 14%
2 Sockets (0 used)
The res roll is meh, but the %DR and sockets more than made up for it! Always nice to check an item of the grail list too. :)

I also crafted this semi-decent-but-lacking-some-serious-gusto amulet. The FCR is nice, and I'm going to hang onto it for that reason alone, though I really wish it had some resistances on it. Not much else exciting happened, and some more middling finds such as Mav's Diadem, Oculus, his 3rd Horizon's, and 2nd Lightsabre got us to the halfway point.

Back to the Tunnels!

Skillers:
- Graverobber's

Other finds:
- Pul
- Mal
- another Gul
- another Ist
- Nature's peace (2nd)
- Carrion Wind
- 2x Wraith Flight (1 and 2)

Very nice one @Pb_pal !!

I know I said that the previous update was my last one before dinging 99 ... guess not. My 1.5 hour run this evening was too good for that.

Yesterday was already nice, with these two drops:

Screenshot001.jpg

Second Torch of Iro from Nihl, this time non-eth.

Screenshot002.jpg

Third Ist from Nihl.

Then today I got a very high amount of good drops. It started out with this one 5 minutes in:

Screenshot003.jpg

Five minutes or so later, followed by:

Screenshot004.jpg

Veil of Steel.

Minutes later I got a -3/+5 cold facet. Then a 2/2/2 Tal's Orb. Followed by:

Screenshot005.jpg

Two Tal's armors in 30 minutes time. Very nice.

Then things slowed down a bit, but I still got a Razortail (got one yesterday as well, which was too dangerous to pick up) and a -3/+3 lightning facet.

Then, in one of the last runs, a unique ring dropped. Now, I got plenty of unique rings, not only from Nihl himself (3 yesterday iirc), but also from Travincal runs and the like, so I figured it'd be another Manald's or so. I guess not:

Code:
The Stone of Jordan
Ring
Required Level: 29
Fingerprint: 0x44b5d971
Item Level: 95
Version: Expansion 1.10+
Unidentified
+1 to All Skills
Adds 1 - 12 Lightning Damage
+20 to Mana
Increase Maximum Mana 25%
Finally !!! A grailer for me, at least this time around, and one I have been waiting for for so long.

So here I am, very happy. And also still very keen to finish Neverland. She's at the 3.50 mark, 20M to go.

Still NM Mephing, and Orion is close to surpassing my highest level character, which is currently my (also technically untwinked, as she was my first character since I wiped the slate clean, so to speak) lv69 Meteorb Sorceress. Meph goes down pretty quickly now, after finding a few upgrades for him. Still no HoZ, but that is to be expected.

Screenshot035.jpg

Really liking the Enchant proc here, mainly for the AR bonus, and my fire resist is now maxed in NM.

Screenshot036.jpg

This right here is the big upgrade so far. Before, I was using Stormeye to take down Meph and most other monsters, after switching from my upped Tan Do Li Ga knout for the huge slowing effect it gives. With this, Meph drops twice as quickly now, even more so if Enchant procs.

The boots in the background are Goblin Toe, which I want to use for the CB, but I really like my Tearhaunch for the Vigor bonus and resists. Should I upgrade the Goblin Toe and use them, or stick with Tearhaunch until I find something else to make up the +10 all res?

@Pb_pal congrats on the CoA, that is a nice roll, @res is overrated anyways. Good progress, stay safe and don't deed yourself. Will you leave AT after reaching 97?

@T72on1 and here you were thinking you would not post untill 99. Congrats on the Soj. I still have not found a SP one. Two Tal's armors, I have not found a single one in nu D2 career and still refuse to believe they exist:). Now gogo.

Don't know for sure yet, I'll have to see what the numbers look like and how big the XP discrepancy becomes. My gut says that I will leave, or at least leave it full-time and split duties elsewhere. AT is very safe, so that does get it some bonus points.

Alright, some millons done with the sorc again, somehow the nihla runs seem to be more funny now, dno why^^
also think about changing setup a bit, but didnt do it since i would have to do ancients and baal for essence.
i though about using a spirit sword (still be on 105 then) and prolly replace the shael runes with sol runes in helm and armor then + i would wear aldurboots instead of the sandstorm then.
but i guess ill just stay on like i am haha

Almost there @T72on1 -- great progress and good luck finishing up. @Bewitch - nice progress also; glad to see your Sorc recovered nicely from the last mishap. Speaking of progress:
Screenshot018.jpg

Phaedrus
is half way through the last level. With Ancients left, he has a little more than 100M XP to go! The last tenth of the level was uneventful until the very end. In terms of runes and S/Us, aside from Mal #3 very early, there was nothing of note for the first 25M or so. Then just short of 3.37B, Sur #3 (from de Seis), and then, with a little less than 3M to go, the biggie that I posted earlier in item-find thread:
98 (Zod).jpg
As @Albatross noted, it's pretty cool that it came from Diablo himself. Very memorable for my first Zod, and it also completed Phaedrus' rune drop grail. We rounded things out with Vex #7 in the last few runs before hitting the milestone. The only TC87 unique was Windforce #2.

He also finally found a 50 fire resist pair of Aldurs. Other drops of note were Leviathan x2, another Redeemer, set Corona, IK armor, Horizon's, Demonhorn's, and quite a few non-eth TC3 uniques. These are some interesting rares:

At this point, I am going to switch from straight p7 runs to p1/p7 with the switch to p7 before Vizier, but still hitting all boss packs along the way. That should speed up the XP gain marginally (he was at 2.3M-2.4M/hour, depending on shrine luck).

Due to safer Infector and de Seis, I will also test out dropping some vita SC charms and reduce the fire resist overstack in favor of more magic find. After the Zod, I'm now thinking he could pick up one of my remaining grailers :D But his current 197MF limits that possibility. I think he'll be able to get up to ~250MF without compromising safety on the lower player setting. But we'll see . . .

Nice rune drops @Bewitch and cool to see the great progress with Phaedrus, gogo @PhineasB! I was going to say enter him into our upcoming MF tourney, but hopefully he will be done by the time it starts. :)

Another quick pre-98 update for Ric after all, given drops have continued to be nice and he has hit the 3.2b mark:

22_1_3.2b.png

Shortly before that I suffered a minor heart attack though:
22_1_NDE.png

Ouch. First really close call since ~10% into the level or so. Runs felt very safe and I was starting to teleport a bit more often recently, which obviously I shouldn't... so I might have needed this slap on the wrist. ;) Can't get cocky down there!

Following the Mang Song's drop earlier this week, things were all about the pairs: 2 poison facets, 2 elemental skillers, 2 trap skillers, 2 Reapers, 2 Lacerators. Also found his 2nd Marrowwalk (first +2), 2nd Ondal's (+2 again) and 2nd Demonhorn's Edge. Couple of screenshots:

Facet streak:
22_1_3-5 L facet.png 22_1_5-5 p RBF.png 22_1_5-3 P Facet.png

Don't think a Zod will go in there, but who knows. :)

22_1_eth Stone Crusher 314ed.png

His second Arkaine's, first +2

22_1_Arkaines.png

Perfect FR (45) on this TO Wing. This will be put to use on a Poison Dagger/TO Fire Ball Necro I'm planning.

22_1_Perfect TO Wing.png

4th Steel Pillar, again high roll (256 ED):

22_1_Steel Pillar 4 ground.png

22_1_Ist.png

I'll update his table entry when at 98, hopefully next weekend.

I'd also be pretty brave with a 3k life necro. It's probably for the best if I never attempt 99, I still regularly kill my sorc in AT.

@PhineasB Congrats on the Zod, that is a very nice stone you pulled out of Big D's forehead. You reached the half way mark, so from here things should be smooth sailing.

StormRider also made some progress and reached his forst milestone.

Ancient tunnels
He spend about 7 hours in AT during which he levelede from 80 > 85. The map was okayish. I did not reroll it, because the LK map was good and I might just had to return to LK in case I did not find Sur rune or equivalent. The big finds were the 3s Archon Plate and actually a crystal sword (to reroll). That meant, finally a base for CtA.

Oh yes I forgot, I used up all my luck for the 3os AP...

After that, I decided there was no reason to stick around in AT and the primary goal was to get that Sur rune.

Back to Lower Kurast
In one of the first runs I was greeted by a golden coloured Serpentskin

. This was an item I was looking for for quite some while. It did unfortunately arrive a bit too late at the party because I was looking for the last stone for Enigma and FHR is important, not all the beauties Vipermagi offers...

I then finally managed to get my hands on a 4 os Flail, Yess!

I have about 900 pgms right now which should come to use for rerolling Nihl/Dia/ Baal GC's later on.

It took about 25 hrs. to get to hell A5. It took about 40 hours to get the runes for Enigma of which I spend about 33 in LK and 7 in AT looking for bases. So approximately in total 65 hours. Given the drops in LK I have been Lucky I guess.

Next steps - Back to AT
I have enough runes to reroll a CtA and Hoto, so I will be looking for those bases.
Hunt for bases: Monarch and Crystal Sword and eth Flail (-10dex req will help).
Hunt for uniques: Shako, +skill rings, Mara's, Arach's, Stormshield and Reapers Toll.

I will continue the hunt in AT and level there for at least level 90. Gradually switching resist charm for MF% and life charms.
After that, the real journey will begin, funny to realize that this has been the easy part :).

So many nice posts, just wanted to pop in and say kudos to all and keep it up. I haven’t played any D2 in a while but still peeking in, gogogo!

@Kitteh i’m sure at some point, as D2 has an uncanny ability to draw you back in over and over, but I’ve been pretty much exclusively playing classic WoW and it has me firmly in its grips for the moment. Sorry off topic rant!

Almost there @T72on1 -- great progress and good luck finishing up.
Thanks. Also ... big grin ...

I freakin' made it !!! This feels kinda sweet, to be honest :).

Full write-up will arrive when I have some more time. Hopefully on Tuesday. For now, this is how the final stretch went.

Things started out nice with another facet: a -3/+3 poison one. After that I did a few more runs before deciding it was about time to have a look at OBS Studio to record my runs. This was yesterday evening. It took me some 45 minutes to get it to work, and even then I could only do a desktop capture, not the game alone. Anyway, I got tired of figuring it out, and it worked (minus the start screen, for some reason I get a black screen there when looking at the recordings).

So despite it already being 0:45 pm, I decided to continue. I'm glad I did, because I got Arioc's Needle, Vamp Gaze, Nature's Peace, Lightsabre, and then this one:

Screenshot006.jpg

all in some 30 minutes. The highlight of the evening came shortly after though:

Screenshot007.jpg

Nihl definitely kept some good HRs for the end :). The Jah actually dropped while I was recording, but I still need to find out how I edit such videos to the essential part.

I had been close to 3M xp/hour for a while at that point, but that hour I managed to reach a bit over 3.1M per hour. I was tempted to push for 99 already, but as it was already 2 pm at that point and I was starting to get tired, I decided to play it safe and postpone it. Until Monday was my plan :rolleyes:.

I ended up having some time this evening, and since I couldn't get my mind off it anymore, so close to the finish, I decided that today would be the day. The drop gods agreed, with a Dwarf Star, a Homunculus and then these 2 nice items:

Screenshot008.jpg

Screenshot009.jpg

Nothing for the last 45 minutes, but that was mainly about getting to 99 anyway. I recorded the last 4 minutes, but seems like I'll have to figure out how to include it in my post first. That'll have to wait though, as I'm dead tired now.

Thanks for reading, and good luck to those still running !!! Oh wait, I'm still running too, with a HC Paladin. In that case, that means good luck to myself too ;).
