Oh nice! :)

Just as I expected for me. Quite decent in items and awful in runes.
I've done all my runs with my Javazon with 555% mf most of the time at players 8.
I found quite a good variety of items, I think some grailers too. An overall interesting tournament. Would like to see many more participants with more variety options. I amy post a few screenshoots of my finds later. :)

Well done to Nanomist as well as to everyone who participated.
Quite an outstanding rune score.:eek:

Wooooo! Well done everyone!

7th? That's respectable after only doing 10 hours, right?

Some awesome drops in there.

Thanks to Gripphon for hosting this tourney, it was fun and interesting to run WSK with its diverse monster groups. Some nice drops there, especially the Dweb from Grape! Hopefully it was good roll.

I have some screenshots of the drops in this album, but how about a highlight video?

Very interesting to see everyone's drops. Congrats to @NanoMist, and also @Grape on very nice scores across both types.

My distribution of drops was, as I said in the running thread, weird. So much so that maybe I should get bonus points due to the low odds of having such a low rune score! ;)

In total, 26 item qualifiers, of which 5 were TC87, but no >10 pt items. The 2 IK Soul Cages stung a bit. And then no runes higher than a Lem, and it wasn't until the last hour that another Lum dropped to replace a Hel, resulting in only 7 qualifying runes total (with 2 Hels plus the 5 reported).

Anyhow, no complaints, as I'd rather use the rune luck on the untwinked 99ers, and Phaedrus the Hammerdin made up for it in spades over the last little stretch of LK since completing this set (plus the Cham he found in RoF). Update coming in the 99er thread, probably this weekend. :)

This tourney was fun and different. Thanks to @Gripphon for the idea and for hosting.

Congrats @NanoMist on the solid victory in both parts of the tournament and of course the overall victory. I figured over three weeks my dry spell would level back off for some better finds, but it never did. Still, this being my first tournament I thought it was fun and challenging.

I really wish I would have worked on my Fishyzon so I could have used her. Somehow through all the years I never leveled an Amazon up to farm with, and even though she is only 49 right now, I can tell she is going to destroy monsters. Besides, I couldn't just let an Ethereal Titan's lay in the stash, and I've found 5 Fletchers grand charms to help Frozen Arrow be a strong back up for Lightning Fury.

I am looking forward to the next tournament for sure. Thanks for hosting Gripphon.

Apologies, I stopped playing D2 again right before the tourney started so I didn't get any in. But I will say I was looking forward to seeing someone find a Zod, so a bit disappointed about that. That being said, great job @NanoMist and other high scorers. I'm not sure how hard people ran it, but the results seem to indicate the superiority of The Pit and such. Good job to Gripgod for running things as well

@NanoMist that movie made it look so easy (while we all know it wasn't) i even thought you missed a unique finding one of your runes (a golden belt) i am confused though, i see blizz, i see conviction aura where is the poison nova comming from?

Congratulations to all of you for the findings and mad props for the winner :)
 

DaveW

Diabloii.Net Member
@BKC, the Poison Nova comes from Andy's Visage :15% CtC Poison Nova when struck.

Well done Nano. I bet you have already listed your build and gear elsewhere. But could you list it here as well. Thx in advance.

Congrats NanoMist, nice finds. Well done to all competitors.

If I had read the rules properly my rune score would be higher - I thought it was Um+ to score :/

And I think we have disproved Nightfish's "The WSK is like a Pit run on steroids" hype. Pits/ AT for me any day. Even Pindle for that matter.
 

NanoMist

Thanks everyone.

@DaveW - Actually, I don't think I posted the gear. It's a fairly standard caster setup though. Pure Blizz sorc.

Shako 'Ist'
Hoto
Enigma
Spirit
Chance Guards
Arachnid
War Travs
Maras
Wisp
FCR/Res/Mana Ring

Merc: Andariel/Fort/Infinity

Assortment of MF/Res/Life/Mana/Cold skillers.

Enough to max out light res of course, other res weren't as important.
About 400 MF with 6k blizz.
Infinity to break cold immune bosses.

@BKC - I don't think I missed a belt, but belts don't score high anyways.

Good job everyone, and congrats @NanoMist for a solid effort! Not surprised at the slightest, the video demonstration was enough to show, that the score's gonna be high.

I'm ok with my own score, given the pretty lackluster effort I gave. I was happy to find one 10+ pointer S/U, and one Um+ rune, that was good enough for me.

Here are the readouts of my top 5:

4 sockets in the Caddy is always nice. Both of the Nos Coils were ethereal. So was the Wolfhowl, which rolled atrociously.

Found 25 elite S/U. Other notable drops were 2 Tal's armors, Spiritual and Hexing GCs of Sustenance (because of course), plain trap skiller and the BKWB and Lenymo I mentioned in the running thread. Also, 17 Rals and 12 Sols.

Cham seems to be cheap around WSK, too bad I wasted mine during the testing phase ;)

@Grape Nice DWeb. Feel free to whisper to that little skull to tell his brethren to drop by in my game at some point. Not that I've been waiting or anything :rolleyes:

If I were to do this again, I'd run with Blizzy and Berserker. I kinda wanted to try Zerker, but didn't have essences to respec, and didn't really care to change my Pit Barb. Guess I'll have to level me another for occasions like these.

First of all, congrats @NanoMist for the clear win, well done! And thanks Gripphon for hosting & all the participants for making this a nice event!

Not the slightest surprise that Nano took over, it was indeed a well deserved victory. :)

Three highlights from my set:

Screenshot071.jpg
Screenshot078.jpg
I feel my results were pretty OK considering my laid-back running and not the best maps, although I was expecting to see at least one other +9.3 scorer but no... That DW was my 5th, and still not a good roll. I'd have gladly given that drop to someone who hasn't ever seen it, and get some higher runes instead.

I ran with my lvl 99 Hammerdin. Played (apart from gambling) for the first time with that character since the summer 2015. I tried some players 7 but P5 was much more comfortable with many monster spawns. I was running WSK 2&3.

@Grape 5th DW already? This game is unfair ... I keep finding P&B skillers, but refuse to start a Venomancer without a DW.

Unfair? I think what is unfair, is that none of my 48 Shakos are not 141 def (perfect) nor eth (grail purposes...).

:p

A bit late but still, congrats @NanoMist and thanks @Gripphon for hosting this tournament.

I used 3 different chars :
1. Summoer - safest and boring. Rolled a good map that allow me to run all the 3 levels
2. Frenzy barb - the funniest but lowest mf.
3. Poison necro - fastest but dangerous becuse of negative resists.

Although I didnt find good qualifiers, I'm quite happy with results becuse of their usefulness.

Something that I learned/suspect after this tourney (which is probably already known/discussed) is that WSK is divided into 2 groups of map seeds. One will spawn gloams on most runs while the other...won't.
Got frustrated with the tough rolls I got for my sorc and decided to reroll the map. On the new map almost didn't encountered gloams. o_O

Eight out of ten times level 2 spawned gloams for me which made my runs extremely slow. Had to exit many times loosing a lot fo time.

Here's every qualifier I found.
