Well done Hrus for overtaking me, but not very nice! :wink3:
BTW...it's "her" not "him".

I'm done as well. Around 7/8 where I have been most of the tourney. Not as many as I hoped, but a nice start to a vanilla character and stash. Big thanks to jjscud for hosting. Big "WOW" and Congratulations to Wilypueo for the huge collection.

Hello all, i dont have time last 5 days for playing, so my grailie remains nearly same - it was increased just by one item...
So, final counts - 223 - not bad for a newbie guy...It seems, that my final place is sixth - better, then i expected...

Congratulations Willypueo to his huge win, and also Hrus to second and Moar to third place!

Thanks jjscud for hosting this tourney - it really returns good old funny days to my Diablo playing.

@All - i am really glad, then i joined this forum and started my career in this tourney - GL and HF to all :smiley:

RIP

A few more hours left in the month in my part of the world, but I am ending my tourney run here. Added Lacerator yesterday and Steelrend today. Thanks for the congratulatory remarks--I just had some nice early luck and much more time on my hands than anyone else I take it (not to mention some extra incentive from the trading woes from before the tourney). I am a little bummed my most sought after item didn't drop--Death's Fathom--but I cannot really complain. Gonna have to figure out where I should insert the 15 IAS/39 ED jewel I found . . .

I am impressed by Moar's finish as I didn't think a non-sorc would be able to do runs fast enough to finish in the top 3.

And burke615, hope your family woes turn around.

And to all--still time to get involved with the SPUMF tourney--I need to get back in gear with that and at least make Cormallon work for the win :wink3:

Excellent, an improvement in both score and placing, though I really wanted to put my Smiter in the top three, but my priority shifted this last week - 10 days to starting my main push to 99. Here is Brick's report.

I'll wait a bit longer to make sure finals are in (not like we don't know who won:rolleyes:) before I make it official.

Sorry to ask this here, but I asked in another forum and no one replied over the past couple of days.

If I keep this character Vanilla, then I just have to keep separate ATMA stashes for the Vanilla items found. Currently they are all in one UGT stash. As long as I do not use any RWM items on this character or taint the Vanilla ATMA stashes, this is OK and that Character and those items are considered Vanilla? But if an RWM item touches this character or the Vanilla stashes, then at that point the character and/or stash is RWM tainted. And I just have to keep using my Vanilla shortcut.

Thanks and sorry for such a lame question here.

That sounds correct to me. I keep my vanilla stashes in different folders and have all the stash names prefixed (SCL in my case) so that I do not get them mixed up accidentally.

Ok, it looks like I was already the slowest getting my score in. Congrats wilypueo, absolutely astounding accomplishment. Congrats to everyone else, when I played in the first tourney like this, I guessed it would only take 200 items to win.

:soapbox:
I've always thought these tourneys are cool, many people whine alot about restarting and, I understand that it can be frustrating if caused by someone else, but once you know what your doing, you can build an item base awfuly quick.

I also think its cool to see that even though the top two spots were held by sorcs, the next 4 spots were not.

Anyways, I'll get off my soap box now. wilypueo, if I could get your email address, I've got a few pgems for you.

@everyone else, thanks for playing and if you want to brag about a few items, now's the time.


My "brag" items

SoJ
Biggin's Bonnet
Bane Ash
Knell Striker
Sander's Paragon
Mara's (28%)

Thanks jjscud for the hosting. E-mail addy is vondoombot (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Besides the goodies you can see in my grail report (including 50 MF War Travs and a 5/5 Cold Facet), below are listed some other assorted goodies. I particularly like the Viper Shell Tiara. I have a bunch a nice amulets, too, from all the gambling (I only gambled ambulets and circlets/coronets). The near perfect Metalgrid was probably my best gambled item. It's neither here nor there, but I did manage to get a 2-socket CoA to drop in the tunnels the day after the tourney ended with Brainfreeze. Yay self-found vanilla play. :grin:

2 Perfect Topazes have been sent. Oh, and they were accompanied by 253 other assorted PGems.

As a winner of the last UGT, I did burn ~150 PGems for rerolling GCharms and the result - nothing. Have a better luck than me, wily.

Congrats wily - if only I didn't die, I would have been up there too giving you a run for your money! :grin:

I think my best find was an Ist from the Hellforge - I think I only found 1 or 2 EUs - a Spirit Ward and maybe an Ethereal Edge :rolleyes:
 

HapyHrt

Diabloii.Net Member
@ wilypueo - If you use the gems for re-rolling, let us know the results.

Best items: BKWB, Assn Trap GC, Sorc Fire GC, Greyform

NM Hellforge = Um
Hell Hellforge = Pul
Sur Rune from Meph (see post #235)

Most common item Isenhart Case (16)
Most common rune Eth (11)

Hmmm...best finds...:
I'd say the Vex, the near perfect CoA and the crappy Death's Web.
Sanders Cap was also very nice.

Gems received. Thanks everyone! About half of the SC gems will be needed to finally pay off (i.e. delete) for my trading debt (Chain of Strength debacle). The rest I will eventually use to roll charms if I ever get some Baal GCs and SCs to roll. The HC gems are my first HC items--so now I have some incentive to start up a HC Fishymancer methinks.

The items from this tourney now comprise my main stashes as I am going to concentrate on vanilla self-found play. I thought about outright deleting my RRM/RWM stashes, but there are a number of items accumulated over 4-5 months before UGT I just cannot bring myself to delete (mainly skillers and the Chains of Honor made from the 2 Sur runes I found and cubed into a Ber) AND I'd like to play around with some of those RWM rune words occasionally. From now on though, my MF characters will be exclusively vanilla, and all my vanilla items will be self-found, so at least I will be insulated from any trading naughtiness to that extent.

Again thanks everyone and happy hunting. :grin:

All apologies for the late update. Seems my late push only lifted me to second to last. :D Other embarrassing secrets? This count of 70 is almost twice the grail I had before the start of this month. I had a check and the previous best was 40-odd. So thanks jjscud for this great tourney, and for broadening my item pool.

Most common item: Full Rejuvenation Potion (85)
Favourite Item: Hexfire (had this in mind for a enchantress build for a while. It's ethereal. :( )
