A detailed breakdown of 3,600+- LK Runs

Unlike my Chaos Sanctuary thread, no love story here. I need crafting materials. Lots, along with MF/resists charms, and HRs of course.

This is deep dive #3 in grinding an area and tracking drops. First was AT, then CS.

My goals (in order of importance):
  • 1,000 Pgems. Amethysts for crafted amulets, with the remainder to reroll small charms (more on this later).
  • Rals, Rals, and more Rals, including cubing no matter the diminishing returns.
  • MF/Resist charms. When I finally get my 2/20 ammy for a light sorc, my plan is to try to emulate what Denton did many moons ago---run Baal and his minions with 200 FCR in less than 2.5 minutes. Frankly, I’ll take 3 minutes. Do I hear 3.5? Because I do not like swapping charms, I need to build up my inventory. As an aside, does anyone have Denton’s vid from way back in 2007?
  • HRs. Who doesn’t mind the extra Ber?
  • Legendary rare/magic items. They come once in a blue moon, which is why it is so far down on the list. However, the time I (we) dedicate to this is not an insignificant amount.
  • Chippies, flawed, regular gems to cube up runes just wasting away in the stash.
First, some basics:
  • Level 90 Bliz sorc with 200FCR, premium gear, and excellent resists. 1.07Valk makes this go.
  • Prayer merc with Insight, Treachery, and Andy’s
  • Based on a 700 run timed sampling (thank you @Oskros), 1.2+- runs per flawless gem @ Players /7. Hence, 3,600 runs-ish total to achieve 3,000 flawless gems.
Skipping to the fourth bullet, the money shot:

Next, a general breakdown of drops:

Edit, the perfect gems were generated by a shrine next to the 4th chest. I had 5 misses because of not paying attention to the "first in, first out" gem and was surprised that the gem shrine only spawned about 3% of the time...

Lastly, the small charm reroll. Generally not recommended because of the wide variety of results (mostly bad). Before this project, I initially dumped a bunch of Pgems into 61-64 iLvls with pretty disappointing yields (frankly as expected given 1%-ish hit rate).

I then switched to iLvl 94+ small charms and was pleasantly surprised by the expanded possibilities, albeit in a limited sample:
