@NorthDakota i had an extremely free weekend for the first time in a long time and I’m assuming I won’t get another soon. Probably 1-2 hours a day at most for a while. Burn out is real once you hit 97 too. I don’t think this will be a quick project by any means haha.

Good great grand. Now we get on with it, onto baals we'll see how it goes.

Edit: It's not going well. Pretty rough going from 35k+ lightning damage on my twinked lightning sorc to the 13k lightning damage on this guy.
What's the rest of your gear? Granted my 99er Light Sorc got lucky with an early Griffon's (otherwise wouldn't have gone Lightning I think). But in any case I found Baal runs rather easy, just boring as hell. :) Can't remember exactly what I had when I started Baal apart from Griffon's and Infinity... I believe maybe CoH and a craft ammy or something.

@Evoken Love the vids, >500 strength 99er Barb doing Vizier-only CS runs is definitely not something you see every day. :D I'm curious, what drops / intended setup are you looking for?

Shako,
vipermagi+um,
Hoto 30res (rolled twice, both 30 :ROFLMAO:) ,
Spirit monarch 35,
resist gloves,
aldurs boots
dual DWARF STARS
rare ammy +2 light skills
Arachs
switch is +4 CtA + Lidless

Merc = Holy Freeze Eth Fort/Andy's/Infinity CA

Charms are just life/tiny bit of resists, 1 skiller and gheeds

So I'm pretty kitted out for like not really looking for anything, It's all just meph + LK really. I have boots options like eth sandstorm treks, resist rares, wartravs, I do need the fire res from the boots but not all of it. I could maybe squeak out more life if I respeced and stat'ed better.

Oh and yeah it's gotten a lot easier since I started. I got better, I rerolled GCs and miraculously hit 1 lightning skiller, switched my merc to holy freeze, rolled that Fort for him since my post, socketed an UM since my post. Dwarf stars are actually pretty sick imo, life, magic damage reduction is fly af, I don't need the resists there so I'm just lookin for survivability and it kinda just works. My runs aren't as fast but my lightning skill damage is up to 20k+ now so I am cruisin fine. maybe 3.5-4 min runs, I haven't been rushing, I have to port to town every now and again when I get bad monster affixes or a particularly rambunctious throne room or something I'll just reroll map. My merc will still die maybe every 10th run if I'm not careful, overall a lot smoother than when I started and I was dying and he was dying and I was sucking XD Gotta be careful on wave 3 with them hydras they gunnin for my merc without fire res capped XD

It's comfortable enough where I could probably keep it up the whole way and I'll get more damage/life as I go.

Burn out is real once you hit 97 too.
Exactly why my twinked light sorc sits at 97 to this day.

@Evoken Jealous of your charms

It's really cool see all the activity here and new entries. Things were seemingly winding down a bit but this a nice infusion and will help us all keep motivation.

One general thought is that moving to XP gains has generally been worthwhile for me, recognizing that gear and rune upgrades may drop during those and there's no guarantee of when they will if doing MF/rune target runs. If the character can't survive, e.g., in the Pit or AT, it may be something, but leveling to Pindle up to 90 is very feasible. At that level, Pit or AT are usually manageable, and transition to CS can flow from there with a few upgrades. For a timed run like @Jpy is doing, I assume consideration might differ though.

@TMT - welcome back and good luck with the Zon. My 99er Quinta might give some ideas on approach. She was quested as a tourney character (non LF), but basically went from lvl 83 when she Mat'ed to level 93 at Pindle, and then gathered runes in LK. I might recommend inverting those a bit, or at least to get some key gear from Meph on the way to Pindle because Pindle or Meph might cough up a key rune that will shorten stay in LK. But I actually enjoyed the Baal runs with her, even before the Griffon's finally dropped. Anyhow, hope that post provides some useful ideas. In general, I had a really fun time with Quinta.

@PhineasB i considered Hell Pindle also but a run like this really is just going to boil down to luck. You really want to just get 90 as quick as possible with CtA and start CS. Any extended farming of non exp targets is going to push you over 200. Cant say for sure if Pindle will outperform AT from an experience perspective but if I did restart I was going to try it since I did AT immediately the last two runs. It’s a hell of a lot less stressful at any rate, regular Invaders will literally one shot you on P8 at 800-900 HP.

Hello sanctuary saviors! Question: does the ability to get anni and torch change any strategies? From what I gather the main strat is hit ancients up around 90 then run Nihl?

I cant tell for torch and anni. But most people save ancients for the last 40mill to 99 unless you need them earlier to do baal runs.

@Evoken Love the vids, >500 strength 99er Barb doing Vizier-only CS runs is definitely not something you see every day. :D I'm curious, what drops / intended setup are you looking for?
Thanks!

The plan is to get as many high runes as possible in order to make a BotD GPA (or maybe another base? first base I had was a Ghost Spear). No ladder runewords allowed, so BotD is the 'best' option; even though a Beast setup with something else has crossed my mind. At this point anything from Ohm and above dropping would be nice progress really.

However, after about actually 18 hours between running Chaos and Travincal without any sign of good rune drops, I decided to 'force' some leveling to 94.

Then I've given a lot of thought about my options. As I see, they are:

1. Rune push:

a) /p1 or /p3 Travical runs (very low xp; odds of Jah/Cham);
b) /p8+/p1 Chaos Seals runs (low xp; odds of Jah/Cham/Zod);
c) /p8 LK runs (no xp; 'better' odds of hrs up to Ber).

I know that, on average, the odds of getting to Zod by doing a) and b) are better - Cows are not even an option, and honestly Pits or AT don't seem much better than Chaos to be worth it. But, right now, I' m almost tempted to go back to LK as a) and b) have been pretty stingy; there's no feeling of "making progress" in them lately.

2. Xp push:

a) /p8 Vizier runs (good xp; odds of high rune drops, albeit lower than in 1)
b) /p8 Pindleskin runs (average xp; odds of high rune drops, albeit lower than in 1)

I don't know, in the past these kinds of runs in 1 have been more fruitful to me - specially Chaos were I have already found Jahs, Chams, and at least one Zod... I know the game can be completely brutal when you're looking for one specific thing, so I'll probably end up just keeping the 'force-leveling' and if anything drops, it drops...

If I had to have a name for the build, it is "StormCaster Hunter", or maybe "Undead Hunter". The extra damage and ar to undead from IK maul and Ghoulhide are very welcome for this kind of run. Of course, he is built almost (didn't want to go lower than 2k life) as a Titan to mitigate the limitations of the IK maul - and, you know, damage.

I don't think I would even change the build that much once (if ever?) I got BotD; I'd probably just add more fcr for faster runs (can't really use Arach with the current setup, for example).

If the build is really good at CS running then you normally save ancients until 98, otherwise most chars don't save them and go to Baal waves directly (usually after farming some essential gear from targets like LK, Meph, sometimes alvl 85 or Pindle). Sorc and Pally are great at CS, the other classes not so much it seems... people have tried

@Evoken Personally I'd ignore XP for now and just farm Travincal for BotD. :) Yes it's a painful grind but I'd be confident that it's going to make up the time investment in the long run. I assume you've checked out zticazzy's Perkele (first 99er in here)? He was playing a vanilla Barb like you are. IIRC he just hit Trav for dual BotD, not sure whether that's a bit overkill though. Also eth BAs are by no means common :D 1-hander could be good, although if you're lucky with at least one eth BA you could go BotD + Beast indeed. From an RWM perspective, for several targets I've tested I found that Grief/Beast BA was pretty much as good (for some runes even slightly better) than Grief/Grief PB. So BotD/Beast should do fine and might save some Trav farming time at very little expense, if any.

So it appears that D2R has brought back another. I used to be on the incGamers forum as "sanguillen" a couple of years ago in case anyone remembers, complete with a couple of characters still listed in the "resting Heroes" section. I got Diablo fatigue after over 3,000 fruitless LK runs (still have never seen a Sur rune in my life), so I've been gone a little while.

With the move to a) a new forum and b) a new version of the game, I figured I'd start fresh with a new Forum Name, as well as start fresh with a new character....and hopefully, fresh RNG luck. Jin-qua is a hardcore Summoner Necro, and if it's OK with you all I'll add to the list when I get a moment (currently level 42, just killed NM Countess), as well as provide detail on gear so far. The gear isn't much, that's for sure, as evidenced by the Berserker's Headgear and the purple +20 resist all Spiked Shield. :p

So great to see all the new action! Best of luck to all the new entrants (and returnees as well)!

I ended up not running MFO with my 99er Barb but still played him occasionally. He's alive and well, getting closer to 97.5. Thing is I'm pretty sure I won't be able to finish him any time soon, certainly not this year, which currently puts me off a little...
I will certainly not be able to finish Stevesy this year. Next year may be a stretch too depending on RL. Besides, you need something to declare for your 2022 D2 goals once the thread pops up!

--

Quick little update for Stevesy as he's officially completed the first 10% of the final level.

Screenshot002.jpg

Well I never did re-roll a map. This one's not ideal but I got used to it during the testing and it has a basically perfect Baal map, so I'm going to hang on to it in case I want to run Baal with him in a competition or MFO sometime.

Good news is, these runs are pretty safe. I alluded to it before, but I've had zero NDEs since my very first testing stint. I was originally worried about having to chase Nihlathak down without teleporting, but it actually keeps things safer since the merc stays away from Stevesy, therefore reducing the risk of Viper-pwnage. Also, 6.3k+ health gives me lots of time to S+E if Vipers get too frisky. He actually feels much sturdier down there than the casters I've taken (thanks in part to the massive life pool and Feral Rage's obnoxious LL%). He doesn't worry about archers or witches, and there are so few residual corpses that CE isn't an issue.

XP/hr has indeed improved with practice! He's settled in around 2.6-2.7 M/hr, which I'm more than happy with. He's not the fastest runner out there, but it's much more serviceable than I expected.

The last thing I tested out was using howl. Granted, I didn't test it over a ton of runs, but I came to the conclusion that it isn't worth it for this build. By the time he cast it, shifted, then locked on to Nihl the merc almost always overrode it with Confuse anyways. Basically all it did was add an extra step, which upped my chances of messing up hotkeys and making the run way longer and also way more dangerous. Other players might be able to make it work, but I almost always prioritize streamlining the run and having the fewest steps to think about (hence why I don't shrine-hunt on Nihl runs). Okay, enough rambling, let's get to the good stuff:

Right away, something fun in a unique ring (Wisp Projector).

Code:
Wisp Projector
Ring
Required Level: 76
Unidentified
Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
Item Level: 95
Fingerprint: 0x1d317c00
12% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

10% Chance to cast Level 16 Lightning on striking
Level 5 Heart of Wolverine (2/13 Charges)
Level 7 Spirit of Barbs (4/11 Charges)
Level 2 Oak Sage (6/15 Charges)

Some more finds continued with Mav's bow, Gores, Andy's and our first bit of orange:

I don't expect to hit another milestone (25%) anytime soon, but at least I'm having fun with him when I am running him (which is a breath of fresh air from Baaling).

Happy running, all!

Woo! 94. Baal runs feelin like muscle memory already. 92/93/94 went super fast I guess, 94 felt exactly like 93, which already feels like it's taking too long :ROFLMAO: There's something about baals that just drains the life outta yah. It's definitely less fun when it's harder, more fun when it becomes zone-out time, feeling closer to zone out time now. I'll be looking for some more long form entertainment to consume while running here soon as my brain needs some feeling inside of it.

I hit 93 yesterday, 94 today, so I got a good pace goin on for after-work runs, sneak in some runs over lunch, sneak the runs in the morning, I'm gonna sneak right on up to 99

Oh man you guys, D2R is so OP for leveling - Having that big meaty juicer of an exp bar with the 10% slash marks on there is a serious psychological advantage. One minor thing that's slower is you know how after wave 5 when baal walks through the portal, you can walk through immediately? In D2R, you gotta wait like 2-3 seconds before you can go through. So there's definitely a difference there.

One thing that really sucks with my baals is that my throne room has like tons of spawns in it, and oh man it sucks when I get souls because I also get boss pack spawns regularly in there. Sometimes I'll get like 2 souls boss packs. I have got to reroll.

No gear changes or updates since last post. Only notable find was a 1os Giant Skull. Climbin that list let's gooooo

I thought it might be helpful to include link to SPF 99er Compendium here given new entrants and potential relevance to questions and discussion.

It is due an update, and doesn’t address new availability of D2R enabled unique charms in SPF. But it covers some ground of discussion on other points from more recent posts.

@NorthDakota Wow you are progressing fast. I totally agree, the new exp bar helps alot. For me its all about setting small goals. Every 5 Million exp completed is a small victory. If you feel like those last levels were mind numbing wait until level 97-98. This was the point where I realized for the first time what i have gotten myself into. And yea rolling a different map can defenitly help imo. I had a map where the thronroom was empty alot of the runs, rarely souls anf overall not alot of mobs in there.

Good stuff @NorthDakota!

Agreed what @Pax1990 said. Getting to mid-90s is still fast and exciting. With my first 99er I felt that 96-97 was where the grind started... In hindsight that was kindergarten :D for me it was always 97-98 where things got rough and progress stalled. Monotonous runs coupled with the fact of being basically geared at that point and finding upgrades being a rare occurrence... And 97 is only about the halfway point of the whole journey. ;)

@NorthDakota: Great pace! Looking forward to the next update. :)

Meanwhile Fiona only had time for a couple of Pindle runs, now at 360 runs in total. In the last ~ 200 runs two noteworthy items dropped:

Andariels Visage and a Ko rune!

D2 is such a great game, that you even get exited about a mid rune. :)


Fiona is closing in on level 86, but wants to continue runnning Pindle up to level 93. Unfortunately I lost a good Mephisto map and might need to reroll that for some alternation from Pindle.

Happy running 👋
