    1.07, then advance as you desire carrying stuff forward from 1.07 to make it easier

    I'd start with 1.09. I know that you can get some great stuff in 1.07/1.08, but 1.09 has a functioning Magic Find system and the players command (up to players64 in 1.09b) so going through the levels is nice and fast. Racking in 1.07/1.08 can give you a good number of high level sets, but to be honest with you I've found hundreds of times more unique items from monster kills (even with the broken MF system) than I have popping racks. After 7 patriarchs and matriarchs in 1.07 and one in 1.08, my combined number of rack found unique items would be 20 - 30; and I've done a shipload of rack-running.

    1.07 has a whole host of broken items, from eth weapons to MPK rings to vita items to bugged LoH, just a huge list of uber items that you can't get anywhere else.
    1.09 has bugged Ravenclaw and that's about it.
    1.10 beta has beta CtA and a couple other runewords that have way better stats.
    Everything forward of that, you might as well play 1.13 for the increased rune drops.
     
    coju, thefranklin and pharphis like this.

    Once you have the roonz in 1.13, 1.07 is the place to hit for the eth bases. Then 1.10a for 2 skills bk ring. If you can stand getting an ohm somehow, 1.10s CTA is great.

    Having a colonoscopy with a drainpipe is more fun than playing 1.07 though!
