    Arreat's already has +4 to combat skills, so the extra +2 to concentrate from this one will only net you +10% more skill damage.

    I do that too, but to an extended level. Io should be Lo, Sol should be Sur, Lum is almost like Um, Ort come on you need to be Ohm, Ith-Ist and so on. This causes a lot of "WAIT A MINUTE" -moments, when you notice that the Ral rune you just picked up was actually Mal or like that recent Sur I found, which I almost left on the ground as I thought it was Sol and realized that "Sol doesn't end in letter R".

    @zticazzy I was expecting to see another BOTD, what's up with you posting some Uniques around here?!

    I do that to items. Like the LO-CHA(M)-BER axe, it annoys the hell out of me!

    Yeah I do that too sometimes, usually after lack of sleep though, although I have a habit of just picking up runes without taking screenies albeit I am more cautious with this now :S

    So I had a good few days of LKing; following that Jah drop from Baal, I thought I would do some LK runs to see what I could get, casually at first. A few days back I got a Vex rune on P8 from a poppable:

    [​IMG]

    After which I decided I should really try and get an enigma since I already got a sur earlier and needed one more sur, so I decided to just grind all day yesterday on p3 LK runs (the thread on LK runs suggested that Lo, Sur and Ber all have drop patterns on p3 while p7/8 only has sur & ber) and got nothing interesting after like the whole day (ish), frustrated, I decided to do P8 yesterday night and lo and behold I got a Lo rune drop from a chest:

    [​IMG]

    This confused me a little since I assumed from that thread that Lo had no drop patterns on p7/p8?? Or has this changed or something??


    Anyways, I decided to use that Lo to make a fortitude for my merc on a 700 armour eth dusk shroud I had lying around after socketing it (I seriously considered trying to rack an eth archon plate or something higher since I wanted him to move a little faster compared to what he was like now, but got impatient and decided to just use the shroud, I hope I won't miss those few defense points...):

    [​IMG]

    And that was yesterday, today I decided to continue where I left off with p8 LK runs, being really happy with my mercs performance now with fortitude where I no longer need to summon an army for him to deal with things on LK, as long as I can keep myself alive and keep both him and me in a decent position.

    Anywho, after yesterday's Vex find on a poppable I decided to continue that tradition 'cause I felt superstitious, and once again a Gul rune dropped on a poppable:

    [​IMG]

    Happy, I continued my search for a ber, sur or anything else below to help me finish my enigma, I kept hitting some poppables and became a bit more thorough, hitting a few I usually ignored but around the same area (where I got the Gul) after about another hour or so of running, I finally got what I was looking for, another Sur:

    [​IMG]

    So with all the ingredients set for an enigma and high off the buzz of the fortitude, I decided to get the things ready (I had a 3socket normal archon plate in my stash and luckily this saved me some time from trying to find one):

    [​IMG]

    And then the enigma:

    [​IMG]

    I lost about 12% MF from the switch from an Um'd skullders to the enigma but I should be able to make it back, I hope to get better resis charms with mf on them, I already have some decent ones, just need to farm them some more, so more LK runs!

    Sorry if this is a bit long-winded, I felt like I needed to keep a record of what I've been upto for the last few days of my (unproductive from an IRL work POV :D ) vacation :D

    Wow, amazing finds there. Congrats on the new shineys !!! And no, it isn't long-winded. It's just the way most of us prefer it actually :).

    About the patterns on different player settings. I assume you are using tables from older versions. I made that mistake once as well. The LK thread wasn't clear about it for me at first.

    @Raad Both Dusk Shrouds and Archon Plates count as light armor, which has no movement speed penalties. I don't remember if mercenary walk/run speed changes with equipment though.

    Since patch 1.13, there have been multiple patterns for every rune up to and including Ber from p7/8 (super)chests in act 3 hell. 1.10 had no patterns for Ohm, nor Lo. I don't know 1.09 nor 1.08 patterns, but 1.07 has two for Vex, one for Lo and at least one for Gul. No higher runes known for 1.07

    @helvete I think it does but I cannot confirm this since I have nothing to back it up but just my own observation, he just *seemed* slower and now does not, so eh; I did not know about the patterns, I spent the whole day on Thursday just grinding on p3 and it was terrible: I had this gut feeling that p8 would be much better since that is where I usually get good results, and when I changed it, yep, I got much better results.

    @T72on1 Thanks dude! yeah I think I didn't get that either :S

    As far as I understand it, he chose a dusk shroud because there was no archon plate available. However, for a merc Fortitude I would choose an eth sacred armor which has been cubed into having 4 sockets. After all, a Lo is involved. As soon as a merc can wear Andariel's Visage (L81 or 82), the merc will meet its str req of 222 (?), although such an armor is even harder to obtain and the merc might also wear a different helm, one without a str bonus.

    Apart from that, the slower a merc is running, the slower he can run into his doom and the more time you have to correct that with a tactical teleportation :).

    @krischan Yes I did choose the dusk shroud as archon plate was not available but I really did not like the move speed penalties (I do not know if this is imagined or real, it seems like it does so welp) with a higher class of armour since I like being able to move around and position him/have him get into position to do some damage since I like fast-in/high damage so that I can pop some CEs; I was not bothered with the higher def from the higher armours and the extra def I am not that much bothered about, he is sitting on a 3k fort, another 4-500 (maybe??) was not a big deal from my point of view, its just the (weird) way I play the game :p

    OOH plus I am very wary of teleporting because I have a habit of going overboard and getting killed.

    Pindle is trying to tell my untwinked throwbarb made the wrong decision. Apparently he was supposed to be born a girl with a tendency to kill things in a cold-blooded manner.

    Any good base for "Death" needs to be ethereal.

    Oh duh, of course. Forgot that one wasn't. Honest mistake. ...I know I have a five-socket sword somewhere in my extended stash that's ethereal... bah

    That's what I get for drunk play and tipsy post, lol

    BUT!!! in the meantime, I was looking for a tir rune in LK to remake my harmony to make pindle running slightly faster on my barb.
    But again, LK denies my wishes and gives me something completely worthless D:

    Screenshot198.jpg

    Had to clean up the drop because I could have sworn the all-important tir runbe had dropped... but it hadn't :'(

    I ended up running countess until I found it. made a harmony in that cru bow. If I want to make anything betting in that bow down the line, I can hel it out.
