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

I think I can safely step into here again. I had been playing a necromancer some time ago, actually posted a couple of updates in this thread... well I rip'd that guy in Lower Kurast after a few thousand runs. Being highly superstitious I was convinced that posting in this thread had jinxed the character and I rerolled only to rip again in exactly the same way.

Seems posting in this thread wasn't a curse so I can safely return :)

I've been playing yet another necro (hopefully third time lucky) for a little while but didn't even bother posting until I'd finished the LK runs. No run counter running but it seemed pretty fast, I'd guess around 2500 runs spread over a few weeks.

It was slightly painful to cube Lo runes but after the fourth one dropped I thought why not. I can still make Fortitude twice even after burning two Lo runes to make the final Sur.

Currently level 87 and magic finding in the pits as a summoner, seems ok so far. Will try and post regular updates. Fingers crossed the table works.

Lawdy, that's a lot of runes from LK. That has got to be more than 2500 runs, or incredible RNG.
This! I have about 2600 runs on my LK counter. Not a single Lo rune, no Ist, probably not as many Vex. So, either you got very lucky or did a lot more runs than that. Either way an impressive haul!

@1have2much3time Way to make a splash, welcome back and GL!

As for me, Lucid finally has a Shako:

0_Shako.png

He finished LK at 76 and it now dropped just before hitting level 90. Given there were only ~2 levels gained form Pit runs mid-80s, it goes to show how long it can take to obtain such a basic item – and if it does it makes you realize how good it really is...

It was kind of worth it running Meph though as he dropped good stuff overall. Highlights included an eth Titan's and several perfect rolls on HoZ, Reaper's, Raven:

0_5-5 L RBF.png 0_8-15 SoE.png 0_eth Titans.png 0_Hobnails.png 0_Perf HoZ.png 0_Perf Raven.png 0_Perf Reaper.png 0_Rixot.png 0_Vex.png

In total he found 10 RBFs from Meph, though only the above 5/5.

At last he's ready for CS with this setup:

Shako (not socketed)
Enigma
Hoto [email protected]
35 FCR/90 mana Spirit ([email protected] ST base)
2x Nagel (30 & 23 MF)
Mara's [email protected]
Chance Guards 36 MF
Upped Goldwrap
WT

6 BO CtA/Spirit switch

Merc (HF): 240/12 non-eth Reaper, Steelshade (11 absorb), eth bugged Stone Hellforge Plate

I like the Merc setup a lot for now. Decrep allows P8 two Seal CS runs even with my current gear, and Steelshade + Stone make him tanky enough for 2 Seal runs. I'll take the necessity to pot mana potions for now, though I'll likely switch back to an Insight setup once I got a proper base.

8.8k BH damage
[email protected]
3100 life/650 mana after BO

With the above gear he is currently at around 370 MF with 75 FCR breakpoint. I could hit 125 FCR when going down to ~260 MF even without Arach, but for now I’ll try to maximize S&U drops.

His to do list for now, in order of increasing RNG-dependency:
  • Craft 2/10+ FCR amulet once he gains 3 more levels. Apart from the magic amulets he has ingredients for ~150 crafts
  • Eth elite 4os polearm for Insight (I might play around with Delirium as well if I get a base)
  • Ber or Vex+ for Merc's CoH or Fortitude
  • The sooner the better: Arachnid Mesh (that eth one from Meph still hurts :mad:), Skillers, BKWB/SoJ

Nice progress ffs !!

After I got to the 125% fcr breakpoint with my untwinked Hammerdin, I couldn't go back. It makes such a big difference. Maybe not in killing speed, never tested that to be honest. But it certainly felt a lot better.

I'm using Reaper's on my twinked Hammerdin too. I don't miss the Insight too much, as a quick flash of redemption fills the blue orb right away. And I regularly need it to refill my red orb anyway, so it's not like I lose a lot of time with it. Much more convenient than potting.

Good luck !!!

Sure 125 FCR is the way to go, I just considered the extra ~120 MF more beneficial at this time... Though now that you mentioned it, I should test to which degree any MF difference is compensated by faster runs with 125 FCR. If I don't lose out on much I'll indeed switch to 125 right away. As for Merc weapon, ultimately I think I prefer Insight. Also never got entirely comfortable using Redemption, I hate waiting for the pulse – time spent not killing or teleporting. ;)

I cannot run less than 125fcr on my Hammerdin anymore. Once you tasted the sweet fast breakpoint, you can't go back.
Incredible drops from meph, ffs! Perfect HoZ as well as Ravenfrost is a great achievement!

He finished LK at 76 and it now dropped just before hitting level 90. Given there were only ~2 levels gained form Pit runs mid-80s, it goes to show how long it can take to obtain such a basic item – and if it does it makes you realize how good it really is...
My sorceress is lvl 93, and still no Shako, no arachnid, no nice amulet, (and No Goldwrap !! :eek:) so I really know what you mean :D

Lucid has hit level 95 running CS for his RFL set. Runs are not entirely focused on XP but somewhat of a balanced approach, doing 2 Seal runs but also hitting bosses and "worthy" amounts of Storm Casters and large groups in between.

To run something else for a few minutes, I decided to go for a couple of Meph runs before going to bed yesterday, still hoping for Arachnid Mesh. Glad I did – 6th or 7th run:

0_Arach.png

Nice! And it wasn't eth either. :p This finally allowed easy 125 FCR together with >3k life and >300 MF. (SoJ/BKWB would have been awesome, but alas the ring above was another Nagel.) So far he already crafted 96 caster amulets, with a few good results but nothing useful to him. However, he had this very useful drop early into his CS runs:

0_Rising Sun.png

This replaced the Mara's he was using, and unless a very good craft ammy shows up I don't see myself going back anytime soon. Just perfect for 2 Seal runs at least – I feel the lower damage is more than made up for by being able to play much more aggressively, i.a. teleport right into Infector's group. Heaving read up on @PhineasB's experience with Phaedrus, I gather that 2 Seal runs are ideal until level 97. So I'm hoping I'll be able to craft a good FCR amulet until then to have more options to try at that point when he will start to include De Seis and Diablo.

Of course rune drops will not be reported until after RFL ends, but here's a few crafts/drops he got in the meantime:

0_+5 Nova .png 0_1-20 sorc ammy.png 0_Barb ammy.png 0_CtA Base.png 0_DefA life sk.png 0_hax GC.png 0_Tal Arm.png 0_Trap ammy.png

As for his RFL set, he's just past the half way mark. Runs are very comfortable (especially after switching to Rising Sun), I forgot how cookie cutter Hammerdin really was even with mediocre gear. :cool: This is what he's using now:

Shako (PTopaz)
Enigma BP
Hoto [email protected]
35 Spirit ([email protected] ST)
Rising Sun
Magefist
FCR ring
Nagel
Arach
WT

Merc (HF): Insight (non eth CA), Stone (ebug HF Plate), Crown of Thieves

Overall I'm very happy with his progress. I should be able to get a few hours today to hit maybe ~15 hours for the RFL set, after that I won't be able to play D2 until mid next week.

Gogogo everyone! :)

Yeah, as I said progressing with him made me remember how OP the build really is. :) At this stage at least he's definitely the fastest of my three 99ers.

Admittedly his CS map is fantastic, might be best CS map I've had on any char. Most of the time it spawns 2-4 packs between Vizier and Infector seals, 2-3 shrines in CS and a whopping 4 extra shrines near Black Marsh WP (huge when including Diablo for XP later on). There's actually a good chance I won't socket a Merc headpiece anytime soon because I don't want to roll it away. :eek: But remains to be seen once I move on from 2 Seal runs.

Hi

nice progress with Lucid

not much time coz of RL, so the few hours i got was spend to play, that s why this update needed some time.
Found my last missig Sur for Eni at Run 1053. ~16hours in

Screenshot016.jpg

Decided to make some more RWs , got 2 oOs Monarchs and 2x Thresher ( one eth one non eth) laying arround.
After the non eth thresher was trash , i was hoping at least for 5os to make Obedience.
Second Monarch rolled 4os, this are the outcomes:

Screenshot011.jpg
And on first roll :)
Screenshot019.jpg

after this i did some progress, did Anya and some Pit and overall MF runs to lvl 85. Want to enjoy my Eni for a bit :)
Now I m back to more LK runs, still Runes for Be ast/Hoto, CTA, Infi missing.
777 Runs/ near 10 hours in so far:
Run:107 Um, 1x Lem, 472 Vex, 486 Mal, 508 Lem, 527 Lem, 537 Pul, 542 Mal, 697 Gul, 725 Um, 746 Vex
Light 18 life GC

could cube up to make CTA and Hoto, not decided now what to do, still just running LK with spirit sword, fhr and life boost from this feels compftopal enoguth atm for me :)

Welcome back @1have2much3time and great progress @nMEKn and especially @ffs with Lucid. The Hammerdin really does shine up to 98, or at least that’s when things slowed down for me :)

* * *

After hitting the 10-hour mark for the RFL Rd 3 set with Pestilence, I decided to take a break for some Baal runs. Quinta was shy of 96.1 from doing 4-5 Baal runs as a break from Nihl runs, and the last two days saw her to 96.5.

Starting off, she kept Razortail, which had been used for Cows in RFL Rd 1, with her 2/9 caster amulet getting the 68 FCR breakpoint. I also moved in a few extra SCs to max lightning resists and others to 50+, along with Aldur's boots. Relatively early on, she picked up a nice Ruby GC of Vita, which replaced a Ruby of Sustenance one.

Around this time, the inability to equip Highlord’s and it’s extra IAS was becoming a drag. Baal actually was taking a while :rolleyes: She still doesn't have a mana leech FCR ring option, so I figured he would go down faster and speed up the runs with Arachnid and maxing pierce, even if it cost me fully synergized LF a few percentage points less than 100% pierce.

We didn’t have Diablo essences, so I went to CS to farm two (plus one extra from Andy, which fell on the second run). An eth Nightwing’s dropped from Diablo as she closed in on the quarter mark for the level. After picking up the second essence from Diablo, we respec’ed and went back to Baal. Highlord’s allowed me to swap out the Amber SCs, which are MF for now.

Baal definitely dropped quicker with the faster IAS breakpoint, and still >90% pierce. As we settled into the routine, a nice eth Sacred Armor dropped, which obliged by picking up 4os in the cube, and on the same run Baal coughed up a Pul. Then this sweet SC fell from Baal’s waves:
Baal (Amber SC of GL).jpg
The merc was still squishy, so I went back and checked status on finally replacing the Duriel’s with something better. I had Ohm and Vex stashed, and enough lower runes to cube up a second Vex minus a Pul, which I then realized Baal had dropped :) So we prepped for Fortitude, with a nice upgrade for Kasim:
Fortitude.jpg
No real drops of note for the next ~40M or so worth of runs, which is typical. [Edit: Except for a [email protected] Mara's.] For the half level as a whole, drops were pretty limited, although the Fortitude upgrade was enormous.

The main thing is how fast she is, even with just 2 skillers. With the Highlord’s/Arachnid set up that she had from around 96.25 on, she finishes the runs before BO runs out, so less than 3 min/run (170s BO with BC active). So, unless I messed up the math, she’s averaging close to 12M/hr, or a little more than 2 hours per tenth of the level :eek: Much faster than Mercy’s Baal runs, and faster XP-wise than Phaedrus who had the fastest XP gain at this stage of my untwinked 99ers so far. I think it will only take 11 hours or so to finish the level :cool:

Nice going @PhineasB!

Re 98-99 on Paladin, I know you and @Neksja stayed in CS, but was there any decisive reason not to go Smiter for Nihl? That's my plan at least, I like changing targets (and running Nihl) anyway. I'll run a few tests after RFL. PI rolls could be annoying to deal with, but it should be considerably faster than P1/P7 CS runs still. I managed ~3.5m/h with Necro and I'd be surprised if Smiter can't get something similar at least...

@ffs I definitely gave it thought, but a couple things kept him in CS.

First, I ended up enjoying those runs as a change, and wanted to get 99 on a target other than Nihl with one of my characters (but I'm not masochistic enough to do it on Baal :p). Also, a lot of the good drops from Nihl come from the mobs around him, and so single-target wasn't as interesting, similar to my reason for not going Blova for Hiatus. 3-seal runs definitely deliver on the rune front, and I was hoping to make serious progress on the runeword grail front with him. Finally, he had only one re-spec left and his gear was not optimal for smiter, if I recall. So rather than fiddling with one of my twinked characters, I just stuck with CS.

That said, assuming Lucid has the gear, I think it would definitely work nicely, especially since you don't have bad S&E lag for those runs. When Phaedrus started skipping boss packs in CS, he was very close to 2.5M/hr, so I think you are correct that Nihl runs will be faster XP for you! Good luck

Made some progress this weekend and quite enjoying pit runs. Anything but LK. First big upgrade was a 4os monarch for spirit, rolled 34% but need some other basics before worrying about breakpoints anyway.

Two other nice drops, first very useful:

Second, useless (on this guy) but always nice one:

Up to level 90.
