    2021 Spring RFL Sign-Up and Running Thread: Round 1 (Moo Moo Farm)

    OK in all honesty, I'm pretty fascinated by Path of Exile atm :D but I'll register nonetheless, hoping I'll get drawn back to D2 in time and away from that massive time sink that is PoE. :) Most of my runners should still be mostly geared from last RFL so there's not much to prepare anyway...

    It is announced THIS VERY MOMENT! Remake is coming!

    @art_vandelay Not sure if you were responding to me, but I strongly assume none of our SP stuff can be used, no hype at all in that regard. ;) But that's no reason not to play the new game!

    It is announced THIS VERY MOMENT! Remake is coming!

    Of course I'll definitely play it anyway, but judging from the vid below it will have a different feel to it... either that or they made the demo with total crap gear, no IAS, FCR and so on. :D I'm assuming none of our existing chars/gear will be usable, and if so it won't be a full switch...

    RFL 2021 When?

    I'd take the same approach, used the same when I estiated kills with XP method. Just run Rakanishu 20 times and deduct average kills (instead of XP). Doesn't need to be with the RFL timer running, could just do that before it starts. Maybe even 50-100 times if you want to be more thorough. :)

    2H Melee Sept -- Progress and Theorycrafting

    Sounds fun! Curious as to what you'll do with Amazon and Sorc. Definitely can recommend the Fuzzy Dodger. :)

    A Set of Guardians (Sept) – Planning & Progress

    Small progress update as Necro is now Conqueror. He's now killed Andariel and arrived in Lut Gholein. We respec'ed and equipped TO set in A5 NM. Fully synergized PNova, lvl 16 LR post-BO and a couple of points in summon tree. Build is very solid of course and he could easily handle A1 Hell...

    SPF Speedrunning - interest, rules discussion and other input

    I guess you could, but I mean it's only used for a couple of minutes until going back to Spirit ;) and Merc needs polearm anyway. My twinking Insights are in ethereal Voulges as it only needs strength and no dex. The more I think about the more I think I might do a run or two just for the fun of...

    SPF Speedrunning - interest, rules discussion and other input

    Khalim's flail isn't worth using really. :) Without going into class-specifics, I can chime in with a few twinking strategies I've used (all current-patch). Also this is with the aim of generally clearing P8 in order to consistently gain XP, i.e. aiming for Hell. Charges For Sorcs and I guess...

    Friday the 13th strikes again - Item Find Thread - Mar 2020

    As Mario Balotelli once put it: “Because I’m rich.” :D

    A Set of Guardians (Sept) – Planning & Progress

    No reason to be impressed I'm afraid, if you check how their names relate to the names of the class-specific sets you'll see it's not like I suddenly became creative... :D Indeed I secretly hope that will do it, but otherwise I'm willing to mix in a little farming. Ist/Mal shouldn't take too long.

    A Set of Guardians (Sept) – Planning & Progress

    Off we go, started the Sin on the weekend and brought her through NM. Currenty in Fire Trapper spec. In the last ~1h I played the Barb, he found Jah and Mal. Both are really convenient. First, we made a CtA, which (after some embarrassing confusion due to only displaying +3 BC/BO on the Barb)...

    The Untwinked Level 99 Progress Thread, The Saviours of Sanctuary Rise Anew

    SPF Speedrunning - interest, rules discussion and other input

    Nice idea. Indeed speedrunning is not big around here, although there are SPFers (including myself) who frequently check out the current strategies that speedrunners use. But for me that's mostly just as a means to an end, in order to level up new chars quickly. Most recently I checked current...

    The Untwinked Level 99 Progress Thread, The Saviours of Sanctuary Rise Anew

    This thread is mid-way down on page 2? Can't have that! I was planning to update every 25% until 98 (or RIP ;)). We've been close to 97.25 for some time, but then I had a lot of work these last few weeks and unusually busy weekends. Still managed to squeeze in some D2 time when I could, but...

    A Set of Guardians (Sept) – Planning & Progress

    Makes sense. I'd like to try the Flaming Mauler route with him, but may change my mind as I go along. Included the first sketch of build and setup ideas above. Mostly looking forward to the Pally, with Holy Shock he should be fun and strong. Unfortunately I'm missing shield and weapon from...
