A detailed breakdown of 1,014 Chaos Sanctuary Runs

This thread was supposed to be about a love story. A wayward Pally in Chaos Sanctuary in search of the something that completes him. You know, those shiny orange rocks.

But alas, this story has a villain. Damn you RNG. Damn you.

Much like my thread about a blizsorc in AT nearing Lvl 97, my paladin was about half way to 98. Once I did some quick math and realized there was about 1,000 runs left, I decided to track experience, as well as certain drops: HRs, qualifiers, Pgems, claws/pelts/Barb helms, etc.

As some of you may know, this is not my first rodeo in CS. I wrote a thread a while back about taking advantage of a “glitch”, whereby prior to activating the last seal, as many mobs as possible get stirred up. Then once tripped, those monsters drop their loot, which occasionally includes highly sought after items.

In that first sample of about 1,500+- runs, I averaged about 1HR per 80 runs. However, in two subsequent RFLs, I did not come anywhere close to that result. I thought, incorrectly, that I was due.

Full disclosure—this strategy is discouraged by the forum. Consider this when reading on.

First, some basics:
  • Level 97 Hammerdin with premium gear and overstacked resists. MF was about 397.
  • Holy Freeze merc with Insight, Chains (eth bugged Sacred Armor; 2,197 def) and Delirium.
  • 1,014 P8 runs in total with no deaths (one S&E, however).
  • Aside from Vizier/De Seis/Infector, the only boss packs intentionally killed were those that could not be glitched. That said, it was not uncommon to kill three per run, either as collateral damage or those that occasionally spawned around De Seis. No lvl85 monsters were killed intentionally.
  • Average experience was about 156,000 per run, inclusive of 69 experience shrines and Diablo contributing 65,500/98,300 (without/with shrine).
  • For comparison sake, I did 5 full clears (a royal pain with a Hammerdin) to tally total potential experience, which averaged 220,875.
  • The disappointing part of this love story—only 6 HRs: Vex (run 251; glitched), Sur (run 316), Ber (run 330), Sur (run 487; glitched), Ohm (run 889), and Ber (run 918; glitched). One per 169 runs, about half the drop rate of my first large sample. Going 251 runs initially without a drop plus another dry spell of 400 runs did not help the average, and was pretty deflating overall.
  • Between this dataset and the two RFLs, it clearly shows how crazy lucky I was initially.
  • Other notables: 3 Mals (all glitched), Ist (glitched), and 2 Guls (1 glitched).
  • Here is a general breakdown of drops by ilvl:
1604935413804.png

The vast majority of Lvl85 drops were by glitching (guessing 65-75%). Less so for Lvl87-88 but it was still a significant percentage (guessing 35%).

In the end, it feels good about being Lvl98. Hell ancients are still available for a boost, but CS experience took a huge hit. Run #1015 came in at 64,690, 41% of my Lvl97 average.

I have since switched back to AT for a break. Rolled an incredible map which I plan to share in Albatross’ thread. Chest room is one teleport from the stairs and contains up to 5 boss packs (in most cases 2-3). Plus, because the map is so compressed , I dropped down to 63 FCR and equipped the merc with Infinity. More to come on this…

@saracen85. After every run, I emptied all drops into Gomule and then recorded experience into Excel, along with other info of note: experience shrines, HR drops, etc. To save time, nothing was ID'd in game as you noted.

@Luhkoh. Guessing each run was 3 to 3.5 minutes, including about 1 minute to maximize glitch and comb through the resulting drops, which extend from CS entrance to around pentagram and last seal pop (Vizier's
wing). I did a dry run just now to confirm the above and glitched a Lo, LOL.
