Orion just found an eth 4os Conquest Sword, should I pull the trigger and make an Oath with it (I have all the runes for it)? Would it be a worthwhile upgrade to my Lightsabre? Or should I continue to hold out for an eth Cryptic Sword?

23 MINUTES LATER EDIT: After 50+ attempts at trying to craft a 5os Phase Blade for Grief, it goes and drops from a quiet and very-unassuming weapon rack. All I need now is a Lo, and I can finally make my very first Grief. The question now is, would this be a better option than an Oath in my new Conquest Sword?

@AlexTheNextOne - Grief will be a better option than Oath, but acquiring the Lo is no small thing. Although potentially easier than the 5os PB as you discovered ;) Odds are good you'll find another Mal equivalent before getting the Lo, so I don't think it's a major loss to build the Oath. But you're likely better/best served rolling an LK map and saving the Mal until you get a Lo equivalent. Good luck either way!

@AlexTheNextOne Oath is really nice. Way worse than grief, but my vote is that you might as well make it to use until you find that Lo! If you end up only missing mal for grief you can always do a few hours of hell countess for it.

Okay, I'd say that worked out quite well!

After Jemali's Might aura, this is the difference in damage I'm seeing now, I'm pumped!

I'm pretty sure that with this massive upgrade in damage (although the slower attack speed isn't ideal), I can consistently run /p3 in Hell now. I'm wondering if maybe I should try out some Trav runs, as well.

2 minutes later edit: On /p1, they melt. So far so good!

@AlexTheNextOne Nice roll! Hope you love it. The leech is probably much improved as well. Are you not hitting 4 frame zeal with it? I didn't expect that to be too hard to achieve with fanaticism. With lvl 20 fana, you just need 10 off weapon ias to get it. You should definitely grab some LoH to get that dmg up even higher! With the 20ias and dmg to demons you'll be set until grief.

I'm wearing Dracul's Grasp, should I switch that out for LoH?

Alright, pushed Lucid a bit more this weekend to hit 98!

Drops were good for this stretch. Fewer runes than for his last update, but that's OK given things like a very nice Griffon's Eye (+14/-20), FHR/[email protected] SC and a high roll Mara's ([email protected]). He also found an actual damage upgrade with an OA skiller, and crafted a decent amulet:

1_5-4 L RBF.png 1_fhr 4@ SC.png 1_Griffon.png

Readout:
Code:
Griffon's Eye
Diadem
Defense: 179
Durability: 17 of 20
Required Level: 76
Fingerprint: 0x8c13ebf7
Item Level: 85
Version: Expansion 1.10+
+1 to All Skills
+25% Faster Cast Rate
-20% to Enemy Lightning Resistance
+14% to Lightning Skill Damage
+119 Defense
Interestingly dropped by a normal monster apparently (ilvl 85).

1_OA Str skiller.png
1_1-10 FCR MF ammy paladin.png

Other finds:
  • Gul, Pul
  • +2 P&M, 18 ED, 20 MF, 5 MPK, 16 Dex circlet (interesting for Passivezon)
  • +2 Barb, 4 ML, 13 Str, [email protected], 64 Mana rare amulet
  • 9 min dmg, 3 MPK, -15 req rare jewel
  • Tankred's Hobnails #3 (!)
  • Redeemer
  • eth Halaberd's Reign

He moreover picked up a 4os Diamond Bow, which I like better for a Faith base than the Shadow Bow base I was considering. As for Pally shields, unfortunately the only base option he found was a 3os Sacred Rondache with [email protected] :( But I have decided to roll away his great CS map and try to find a shield rack in A3 for a while.

As you may read between the lines, I do lean towards the Dreamer build for 98-99. Should be slightly more efficient than CS, but most importantly it's just too cool not do it. :D

Found an ST rack quickly, some 15 minutes of map rolling. Since I have a [email protected] ST for my twinked chars already, I figured I'd take anything 35+ for this guy (moreover [email protected] from Dream is a huge variance anyway).

First three good bases "failed" in cube with 4os each:

But then a [email protected] one dropped ready with 3os after an hour or so, and after cubing 2 Surs and a Ber to a Jah, I was looking at the below inventory screen.

Ready to make a few typical "untwinked" runewords. ;)

Results

The big thing first – after using my last socket quest on an eth BA, I made this BotD (which is I believe the 4th one in this challenge, after two from @zticazzy and one from @Bewitch). Roll is a bit below average, but of course more than good enough.

Dream Crown – super nice, high rolls throughout.

Dream ST – super nice as well, except for the low MF roll which doesn't matter much of course.

Faith DB – roll here didn't matter much either, any Fana roll would have done for 8 FPA Vengeance. But 2/14 isn't bad of course:

So Lucid, who was starting with the express intention of becoming a Dreamer, now is one! He's gonna take a crack at Nihl now, starting off with this setup:

Code:
Dream Grand Crown
Dream Sacred Targe
eBotD BA
Enigma LP
1 Pally, 10 FCR, 10 Dex, [email protected] craft amulet
10 FCR, 15 FR  blood craft ring
WT
upped Bloodfist
Arach

Switch: +6 BO CtA/35 FCR Spirit

Merc (A1 Cold): Faith DB, Fortitude eth BS, Andy's
He has 3650 life and 630 mana after BO. Really happy with those numbers. Bloodfist is awesome for this build IMO, very nice life, min dmg (great for Vengeance) and FHR (taking me to the 86 FHR BP). Arach, FCR ammy and FCR ring are so that I hit 75% FCR on switch for reasonably quick Teleport. Nothing is set in stone yet though. Initial runs at Nihl were fine. Will do record a few runs maybe later or tomorrow.

:eek: Absolutely tremendous! Can't wait to see how he works out. Very cool approach, and I'm glad the rune drops along the way supported this transition!

@ffs just amazing. Gonna make for one of the most epic untwinked 99er endings for sure. Also, I don't remember if it shows the dmg right with dreams and vengeance, but if the LCS is relevant, show us that dmg!

I finished up my 20 hours of chaos with Arkana, and made it to 96.33. Did a few minutes extra to get to an even 2.8 billion exp. Leaving where we left off, the drops continued nicely for a while.


I have 7 jav skillers now (only 4 of any other type of skiller max), and 4 have life on them. I really should make a java.


With that last mal, I was only an um, mal, or ist short of making another cta, so i went countess a couple of hours and rolled this ugly thing.

But hey works great for body recovery and i cant complain when i got 4BO on my only other one.

Soon after this I hit 96! By far the highest I've ever leveled a character in all my long 15 months playing the game :p


I'm lucky enough to have found 3 shakos from mephy, but I was really excited to see my first non-mephy gold shako.

Was 140 def, and rounds out my body recovery kit quite nicely. I now have all the same gear on body recover, except soj is replaced with a rare ring with strength and res, maras 30 is replaced with a plain blue [email protected] amulet, 1BO cta, and i left the glove spot blank just for a bit more stash space. So final result is 3 less skills and 200 less life, and 60fhr instead of 86. Not too shabby at all.

Nearly had to put it to the test immediately with an NDE.

I had gotten in the habit of popping infector's seal from the top right of it, for quicker access to where his pack usually spawns, but this makes him occasionally spawn right on top of me. Usually that doesn't matter as I can tank several hits and have plenty of time to rejuv or tele out, but this time with might, I had just enough time to hit esc immediately.

Unfortunately lesson wasnt learned, and I soon repeated this mistake. This time the pack spawned with fana, and I must have gotten crit a couple of times or something, because it looked like I was one-shot. This was my only death in these 20 hours. Body recovery was no problem with the recovery gear and I only lost like 40 minutes. This did finally make me learn my lesson though and I popped the infector seal from below it from here on out.

One more rune.

Also found a heaven's light, and then one huge find for me.

I was slightly concerned that I hadn't found this yet. Though with like 90+ hours remaining in chaos, that's surely too early to worry, but I was complaining about that fact to my buddy @sir_cyclops, and sure enough, it drops right before the end of the 20hrs. I have 150mf and found like 4 unique rings the whole time. Worst pdr roll, but I don't mind :)

Summary for ~27 hours of chaos:
Runes

Sur, Vex, Gul, Mal, Mal, Um, Um
Not the best CS rune haul, but I'll take it.

Grailers
Earth Shifter, Blinkbat's, BK mythical sword
Pretty nice!

Skillers
Cold, java (w 26 life), pcomb, barb masteries, warcries

Others
iK armor, shako, heavens light, hand of broc, 38light 36fire 24mf boots, 2/20/15life sc, eth thresher cubed to 15/249/6 insight, monarch cubed to a 35 fcr spirit (first roll) for body recovery, natures peace!!

Now I think I'll take a month or so off and play other characters, including my barb for MFO. After that I'll come back to Arkana, and it should be less than 20 hours to 97! If I can keep from dying.

Nice progress and drops @Luhkoh!

Sorry for spamming :) recorded a couple of runs. The map only has 2 shrines on his path, but I think I'll keep it for now since it plays nicely with pretty comfortable monster spawning locations. Averaging around ~3.45m XP/h in this batch to start things off. Happy with that given my misclicks, several annoying rolls and only one XP shrine kill. Let's see how (if) that improves with more practice. Setup and build shown at the end, slightly different gear than stated above (still testing things).


People who played Dreamers may wonder why I didn't max Salvation (only 10 points), but instead maxed another Vengeance synergy first. Reasoning is that if Nihl rolls LI, I'd like to have a bit more punch with another element. Resist Fire made most sense given Nihl only has 33 FR normally (as opposed 70 CR, i.e. Conviction can't get him down to -100). It was more of a gut feeling and I didn't run any numbers on this, but it seems to hold true as LI rolls are pretty easy.

@ffs Thanks! And don't apologize for spamming. We want all the good info on the most unique nihla runner in this thread yet. You better not wait a month and then leave us with an "I made it". :)

Also not only is it crazy that you even have the rune wealth untwinked for all of this, but I find it really amusing that you've made ebotd in the most common base, in about the only situation where it makes sense to me to use that base.

@ffs you can vigor from entering game to WP to save a fraction of a second (lol) and again C/T is dope with your map having both paths NW (no hp/mp bulbs in the way). It’s small but it could contribute another 0.1 m/h or whatever if used correctly, might be worth trying.

E: running Pindle lately and god did I just get a reminder of that envy-inspiring no delay..

For C/T we had this before. :D Whenever I compared XP/h with or without tele trick for running Nihl, it turned out to be more efficient not to use it. With it I don't reliably see shrines in HoP and land precisely next to HoV entrance 100% of the time. That being said, you're right about the map being more suited for it than others, will check out if it makes sense to use it here.

Vigor would indeed be nice, in fact I've used it for even smaller distances (e.g. for CS runs with Lucid when from A4 TP to WP to check shrines in A1 while Diablo spawned). Thing is I dropped it. This build doesn't need any Defensive Aura skills other than synergies, so it would have cost me 4 skill points to get (low level) Vigor, I'd rather put those the points into synergies.
