Awesome thread @Luhkoh! I'm glad I noticed this so late so that I can binge read the whole thing without running out of material. For some reason I had missed the first three sets. It's like when you start a show from Netflix that everyone else has seen and there's like 8 season for you to binge through.

I'm figuring out my Windy setup atm and your comparison of different setups is very interesting. More specifically I'm figuring out 163 FCR setup and I thought I would have solved the mana issues by doing the unthinkable and investing points into energy. I invested 80 points and ended up at 1250 post BO but still I'm forced to drink pots. I'll try Insight and maybe lean more towards cold damage and see what happens.

Thanks so much @J-Dog! Hopefully you've still caught it in its early stages,. I hope to fill this thread out with many more sets! On the windy, nice idea on the 1250 mana. Even if you still have to drink some pots, I'm sure that reduces it immensely. Unfortunately, I'm not sure insight merc is a reasonable choice without doom. Not even sure its the best choice with doom, but it's at least competitive. My hoto insight test runs went so poorly I wouldn't even finish the 20 runs haha.

But if you make yourself a doom (or get a heck of lot of minus cold res some other way I cant think of), then I definitely recommend it. Made the play much more enjoyable for me. I watched an old video of gripphon doing quite fast AT windy runs, and he had 1600 mana 😳. No idea how even with Beta cta and wizzy.

Infinity is definitely nice in AT especially on p1. It's satisfying to teleport into a big pack and let Hurricane take care of them in a single pop. Insight setup seems fine for more diverse p1 running. Combining CS, Pits and AT with Insight setup is a pretty diverse and fun farming route. Maybe I'll make Doom when I drop a Cham.

I'm looking forward to the next part of your epic loot saga!

This thread is great! Props on the project and on doing everything with so much care! Really pleasant to read. And your loot display locations were just great. :)

I have a question to you or some of the lurkers about run counting, if you may. I think I downloaded the same application, but I'm having a hard time using it because apparently it never counts the first run but still uses it as the time to check against? In other words: when exactly should I start the timer so that the 1st run is properly computed and I can just keep going smoothly?

Start the run counter, enter the game with your character, then immediately save and exit. The run counter will then be set up properly for counting your runs. Also, if you pause the run counter, that run will not be counted correctly. It's better to stop the run counter completely and start the process over than it is to pause it.

@rafquad thanks so much! I've been having tons of fun with and hope to keep it rolling. I do the same procedure Vildecore mentioned. I click start run counter, then immediately save and exit on my character, then things work great. Only problem is this makes the "fastest run" feature useless, but ah well. And when im ready to pause, i just click exit on the active timer (bringing you back to the interface that you see when you open the rune counter). And when ready to restart, just the same start run, s/e procedure again. Hope that helps!

~~~Set 4: Explosion Necro~~~
Character: Corpse Explosion Necro
Area: The Pit
Playersetting: 1
MF: 656
Starting lvl: 94.3

Taken me a few days longer than intended to get this post up. A couple of friends got me to start playing minecraft with them and I've been a bit deep into it over the past week (pun intended 😉). I really like this character so far, and he's already found me some great stuff! He's a necro that, since I'm playing on p1, uses amp and ce as his only two spells. I think this is the most efficiency tyraels-finding necro build, but let me know if anyone thinks otherwise!

I thought about leaving his spec'd as a regular pnova necro so I wouldn't have to burn two tokens (now and then later when I put him back as pnova for p7 runs). But I want him to get to 95 and I was afraid he'd die too much, so I did respec him. Maxed CE, bone prison and bone wall (to have a nice bone armor), and then split points between amp and golem mastery. This was definitely a good decision since I've already died a fair few times. Thought to be fair, he can be played pretty safely. I just figured out I could shave like 2-3 more seconds off by telestomping a lot more, died a lot more from that, and decided I have to hang back just a bit :p. But anyways I really enjoy playing this character. He's not quite as efficient as my blizz sorc, but not too far off, and I think he's definitely more efficient than the pits hdin. And not only that, but he ofc kills the most minions and normal monsters of any of those, which, while not super significant, does add some to the true mf efficiency. This isn't reflected in the adjeff we usually use, but it does stack up a bit in truth, as discussed in Owlie's "new mf efficiency" sheet back in the old forum. And indeed, my very nice find that you may have seen in the IFT (if not, can wait for the full set reveal) was from a normal p1 monster. So all that to say say he's quite good. But just as important, he's just a nice character to play. Fast and don't have to aim at all. I think he's a legitimate mf build that we aught to see more often. Even MFO viable and such.

Gear
At first, I was going to gear up with basically the same gear as my hdin (595mf, 125fcr). Was also going to try out the 6ist crystal sword I made recently, but at 75fcr, similar to how i did on hdin. But then I realized I could use the 6ist CS and still get 125 fcr with him. The reason this wasn't obvious is because I have no 20 fcr circlets or amulets with necro skills on them. However, I figured an amp+ce only necro doesnt really need ANY skills, so I socketed that circlet I found recently with 1 to assassin skills, 20 fcr, 22mf, and 12 all res and plopped a ptopaz in there. Then equipped a 20fcr amulet without much on it (don't have any with mf or big amounts of mana), and also put on my fcr ring with highest mf. This brought me to 671 mf.

When I tried that out though, the mana issues were really bad, even with the insight iron golem, so I was about to revert back to the shako/branch setup. Then I realized I could equip an fcr ring with mana instead of mf and still be ahead in mf. Should've been obvious, but took me a second. I also swapped some charms around to have more mana, and ended up at 644mf. This worked great and I've been running with this setup. But, a bit of a spoiler, this necro' is always lucky for me and he dropped me my fifth pair of war travs, which broke my low mf boots curse when they rolled 47mf! So i upgraded to the 656 breakpoint. Highest mf of any of the sets yet :).

I figured the mid 600's mf 125fcr setup made it not worth testing the 75fcr setups available to me. May change my mind and test some later in the set, but I doubt it. Also have been running with the fort/infinity merc, but want to see if putting treachery and ebotd (war pike) on him seems to speed up or slow down the runs. I did put ebotd and fort on him for a second, but he just seemed to attack too slowly to me. I expect infinity/fort will be the way to go, but I'll probably experiment a bit still.

Map
I had a nice shaped, short map on this character that I've had since RFL 2019 that had been lucky for me. It was 4 tile linear, with only 6 teles to the entrance from the black marsh waypoint, and I was doing like 55s preliminary runs on it while testing. I really didn't want to reroll it, but it was avg'ing like 7.1 boss packs over 30 runs, so I had to pull the trigger. My procedure is usually investigate 4 tile linear maps (ofc), 5 tile linear maps, and 4 tile nonlinear maps, but I think from here on out I'm just going to roll straight for 4 tile linear maps and accept nothing else. This could pass up some amazing maps like gripphon's 5 tile one, or perhaps some insane 4 tile non linear one where you don't even have to go all the way to the end of the dead end, but meh. The 5 tile ones are a lot tougher to run quickly, and I prefer short and simple runs anyways, and 4 tile nonlinear ones are just less likely to be good imo (since they effectively have the travel distance of a 5 tile map, with the spawn area of a 4 tile map). Anyways that's some technical map rolling stuff, but I thought some might be interested in it, and if anyone who's really into the pitmaps want to comment, I'd be interested in their thoughts (paging @ResTTe).

Anyways after a decent bit of map rerolling and testing, I stumbled on this one, which is very similar to the one I rolled on my hdin for set 2.

Don't love that wide tile, and the boss "overlap" that really skyrockets necro's efficiency is good, but not stunning. But its definitely a nice map and a keeper. Runs so far are right around 60s. Boss count from the 35 runs I've counted (including the vid below) is 8.06. So I'll just use 8.0 for efficiency calcs for the end of the set.

During the map rolling time (all on p1), he turned up a gul, vex, death cleaver, and a 30mf nagel. Great precursor.

Sample Runs

Hope his luck continues and that I don't get too too absorbed in other video games 😁. Cheers 🍻.

~~~Set 4 Recap~~~
Finally finished up the runs! Wow what a GREAT set. Also added a collection of the haul pics to the original post.

Start lvl: 94.3
End lvl: 94.7 (died much more than I'd have liked)



Nice. First set on over 600mf and first character I've run pits in sub 60s with. With 8.0 avg bosses, that's an adjeff of 2.62. Not shabby at all. I definitely think necro is the 3rd most efficient mf class. Not that that's some huge distinction, but I'd love to see more people play him on p1. Definitely going to be more efficient than a druid I think. Runtimes could even be lower, even for me. I was able to push more into the 56-57s range, but then kept dying while doing that (almost always from might aura enemies in some way), so you'll notice the runtimes tracked down, then back up. Mostly due to that because I hate dying on necro. Have to remake that insight iron golem so often.

Also I did do 100 runs with ebotd war pike + treachery merc, and the runtimes were right on the exact same pace as infinity + fort merc. I think it's mostly faster, but then some stone skin enemy with high fire res can add a lot of time, so it evens out. And infinity just feels slightly better since you spam CE a bit less, so I'm gonna say that's the better merc setup.

Thoughts on the Character
I really like this character a whole lot. The gameplay is fast paced, doesn't require much precision clicking, and just feels good. Respecing to pump bone armor and iron golem feels necessary. Could have used a lot more life or some better gameplay though, because I probably died something like 7-10 times during this set. Seems completely unreasonable to me, and almost all of them were due to might aura in some way. So something to reduce that a lot would be nice haha, whether from gameplay or gear. But otherwise, one of my favorite chars I've mf'd with.

What's Next
I'm actually not positive what set I want to do next in this project. First order of business is respec this necro back to poison and finish getting him to lvl 95 with his new dweb :cool:. But that won't take long at all. Then I think I'm going to take the griffons out for a spin and lvl my zon up at baal for a while. I considered just immediately starting a 1kmw set in the pits with either my zon or a light sorc, to put that griffons to use, but I want a little break from the pits. So after leveling up the zon awhile, I may do that if I've had a long enough break from pits, or I might just jump into an AT trapsin set. Another factor is that I want to play my zerker for MFO, which is assume will come up in the next several weeks, and I will definitely double-count that as a 1kmw set. Many factors, but we will see. Cheers :coffee:.

Adding a sentence to the previous set recap about ebotd vs infinity on the merc that I forgot to add in (they were about the same speed, but infinity felt a bit better).

~~~Set 5: Tunnels Trapsin~~~
Character: Trapsin
Area: Ancient Tunnels
Playersetting: 1
MF: 513
Starting lvl: 93.3

First off lets talk about trapsins and pitmaps. Any readers have issues with that? I noticed I can't seem to roll a pit level 1 that gives more than like 3 (!) bosspacks. And I've seen it mentioned a few other places independently that other people were having a similar issue, and I'm convinced this is a real thing. But despite some discussion with some people on discord and some super light testing myself, I can't figure anything out about it. I tried teleing through the level with out laying traps and thought that was increasing my bosses by quite a bit, so was theorizing that maybe the traps were somehow counting as monsters, but then I couldn't exhibit the same behavior in ancient tunnels. And the guys I was chatting with on discord had such a wide variety of issues and non issues that I don't even have a hypothesis. Just a belief that its a real thing, which is unfortunate as I think trapsin could be quite nice in pits. However, I probably like AT better anyways, so can't complain too much. Without further ado...

Build is max light sentry, death sentry, and fire blast, then one point in BoS and mindblast, then remainder of points into LS/FB synergies. Enough dex to use wizspike and enough strength for a monarch while wearing enigma, and rest into vita.

Gear
I did try out insight since she's dual element and its p1, but that dmg increase from infinity is indispensable here, so merc is standard infinity, fort, and cham'd andys. I definitely feel the need for max or near-max light res, and decent other res in the tunnels, so can't reach the bigger mf numbers of my pits runners. This also makes ist'd wizzy an appealing option to me for many p1 AT mf runners. But I had 3 setups I wanted to try out.

1. hoto + spirit (513mf)
2. wizzy + spirit (586mf)
3. wizzy + phoenix (513mf)

I'll note with numbers one and two I would want to run phoenix on the cta swap. I find replenishing mana with redemption to make the runs much much more pleasant, even though I highly doubt it's more efficient than picking up mana pots or rejuvs if you can click more accurately than me ;). In fact, I kinda wish I'd thought to do that when testing setups using infinity merc on my druid in set 3. I might not have ditched infinity so quickly, but oh well, I really liked my doom-wielding mf druid setup.

So anyways, I did 50 runs with setup 2, and then 50 runs with setup 3. And with those runtimes, setup 2 was more efficient, but only by like 0.005 adjeff. So no real difference from that test. However, setup 3 was just soooo much more comfy and fun to run. I don't know why mana issues impact my game enjoyment so much, but they do, so I didn't even test setup 1, and am running with the wizzy phoenix setup. That constant redemption from phoenix is like a rich man's insight.

My charms are getting good now too. Have I think 31x 7mf sc's, so only 2 more mf possibly to be gained.

Setup
Helm - Shako (cham)
Amulet - 2 traps, 7fcr, [email protected]
Weapon - Wizardspike (ist)
Body - Enigma Mage Plate
Shield - Phoenix
Gloves - Magefist
Ring 1 - 30mf Nagel
Ring 2 - 10fcr, [email protected], 30 light res, 30 fire res
Belt - Arachs
Boots - War Travs (47mf)
Charms - 40 gheeds, 30x7mf, 1x6mf with mana, one with high mana
Merc - Might with Andy's (cham), Fort, Infinity giant thresher

I'm going to start leaving out the gomule dumps, unless someone tells me they miss them.

Map
Got a bit frustrated rolling maps after 2 I was testing didn't pan out, both with sub 5.5 bosses. So I was happy to get this small map, which is 2 teles from the waypoint. Not an amazing boss average with 5.7 avg over the 40 runs I've counted. But with the small size (i skip the two tiles in the top right), its definitely a keeper.
heat map from 6 runs


Sample Runs
During my sample runs video below, I got only 51 bosses over ten runs, and was a bit scared the map wasn't as good as I was saying, but then the next 5 runs I did off-camera had 34 bosses, so my faith was restored in the map, and I'll use 5.7 bosses for my set data.

Hope everyone is doing well! Cheers 🍻.

Very cool gear setup. Also redemption aura makes any character look like a pro.

I had the same issue with trapsin in the Pits. Just couldn't get more than 3 boss packs! I even made a thread about it and was told politely to remove the tinfoil hat and to keep on rerolling the map. After reaching level 93 and rerolling after pretty much every run and not getting more than 3 packs I gave up. Maybe I wasn't a noob who complains about bad rng after all :geek:

Trapsin pit issues sound so weird I had to test this myself. It's a small sample size but I can confirm your findings.
First 3 rerolls had 2-3 bosspacks, the 4th about 4 which isn't as bad but still lower than expected :unsure:
Mine is a kick / trap hybrid without a shadow, though I don't see how this could be relevent...

I also remember someone rolling the same map over and over with their sin, something odd is going on for sure.

@J-Dog @Albatross try teleporting through some maps without laying any traps and tell me if that changes anything. If you feel like it ofc. The guys I was talking to on discord had a wide range of results. A few had decent maps on their trapsins, but they had pretty much all of the bosses spawning in the first tile after the entrance, so that might make a difference. The discord guys also did some weird stuff where one guy took a map seed of dense map from his sorc and tested it on trapsin. Low bosses. Another guy tried the teleporting through without laying traps and still was getting low bosses. Of course these guys are using different amounts of non FAM mods and such, so that could possibly confuse issues. And again, I cant seem to demonstrate similar behavior on even a very linear AT map which I rolled. So I have no guesses on how the problem might work. But its stark enough that I'm convinced it's not just bad luck.

I did some testing and got some interesting results. I'll make a new thread so this awesome project doesn't get hijacked with off topic discussion.
