Quoting one of my personal pre-tournament questions:

ffs said:
(...) Will @NanoMist ever stop getting the drops when it counts? (...)

Answer: Nope! ;) Not yet at least, as @NanoMist continues to stay hot with another win, placing first in the highly competitive category 1, while @Shuffleblast and @T72on1 took home the victory in categories 2 and 3.

Congrats to our winners!

With the highest scoring drops in both categories in Zod and Astreon's, @NanoMist also takes first place in both, followed by a hard-fought battle for 2nd place overall, which came down to tiebreakers between @ziambe, @Neksja and me. Considering decent drops in either one category can be found throughout the whole field, this really goes to show a strong result in both categories was essential.

Note: Placements may change as I haven't received results from all players who signed up. @darkstarhub, who I think was running, as well as @CrustyRusty, @Grape and @ioupainmax (though I understand the latter three will not be submitting a result). Please report as soon as you can if you would like to have your result included.

    Runes: Ist Fal Ko Ko Ko (13.1)
    S&U: Darkforce Spawn, Spirit Ward, Steel Shade, Messerschmidt's Reaver, Stone Crusher (201.4)

***

A couple of rare items have remained elusive in Tyrael's Might, Death's Web and Mang Song's Lesson. But these are respectable results otherwise considering the 20 hour cap, with numerous players not running for more than 6-10 hours. Still we got to see several drops from the "rare and very useful" category like Griffon's and Death's Fathom, not to mention all qualifier runes including Zod.

For sake of completeness, link to the sign-up and running thread.

Thanks all for participating, this was a lot of fun to host. Hope to see all of you for the MFO after this little warm-up.

But for now, let's see those haul pics and all the good stuff!

EDIT: Included results from all players (including those who didn't manage top 10) in the rune and S&U standings.

Congrats @NanoMist @Shuffleblast @T72on1 for 1st place finishes! Again, thanks @ffs for hosting, really needed some motivation. Setups of 50 MF and 6 MF with no rune luck did me in for results but I’m very pleased with my non qualifiers. I’ll post later with shots.
Tied 2nd in A85 and 2nd in Nihl? I'll take that with pleasure!

Congrats to winners of each category @NanoMist (I'm gunning for you in MFO), @Shuffleblast and @T72on1 (you better watch out too)! Thanks @ffs again for hosting!

I'll see you all at MFO, correct?
Congrats to all winners and thanks to @ffs for hosting this tourney...

Funny to be 9 out of 10 participants in rune category with JAH in my pocket, but LK has been cruel to me this time...i have to say thanks aswell to MR.Pindleskin and Co. for very kind rune donation (found only two JAHs in entire career, both from Pindleskin and his gang), needless to say this rune will help my untwincked lvl 99er a lot...Only BER away from Enigma ;)

Once again, congrats to all and GL next time ;)
Where am I? :(
Your results were so out of this world that @ffs deemed unfair to include them for us mortals running against you.
Haha, to be honest I thought placement wouldn't matter to players if they didn't score in top 10 in either category, but who am I to assume! :) Apologies @Trapin', will include your (and everyone else's) result later!

EDIT: Done.

More importantly: Where are the haul Pics!?!?
Nice job to all the runners, some really nice drops. Well done to @NanoMist for winning again and well organised by @ffs.

Haul pics when?
Congrats to everyone especially @NanoMist
I found a Mal in the rune section! Which at least puts me not last in both categories! Can replace one of the IO with a MAL
@Trapin' Sorry, copy-pasted wrong runes, score was correct though I'm afraid. :rolleyes:
Stormshield and Cranebreak should be listed under my top 5 S/U. The score is right.

Congrats on those who ran 20 hours instead of my paltry 8. Still shaking my fist at LK for 4 hours which only produced Gul Lem Ko, grrrr. Hopefully I'll muster up more motivation for the next one!
Copy/paste seems to be clearly beyond my abilities. Corrected accordingly. :)

I still can't see any haul pics people? Will post my stuff tomorrow most likely!
Well I guess it was better to come last than not play at all! :rolleyes:

Jelly-jelly of those Ber (@ffs you deserve it), Jah, Cham and Zod (*faints*) runes! + those Schaefer's/Astreon's drops

Before I get to the Haul Pics, here are some fun facts:

  • I actually ran 4 sets; 20 hours pits, 40 hours Baal, 20 hours AT
  • After 80 hours and 5 unique Destroyer Helms, I think it's safe to say I am completely destroyed
  • I achieved one of my remaining D2 goals for 2018: Find 2 Unique Sacred Armors! (0 for 6! :/ )
  • Found 2 grailers for my 2nd grail since my first one is stuck at -1 for ages...2nd grail at -4...
  • I finally broke my longest streak of non-unique TC 87's - after 112 non-unique Thunder Mauls, an (eth!) Earth Shifter dropped!
  • Ogre Gauntlets are now my (last) longest running non-unique streak with 89 consecutive non-uniques!
  • Just 2 more TC 87's before I have recollected them all without finding a Tyrael's - haha (no really!)
  • With 4 unique Spiderweb Sashes, I will have plenty of belts sitting in my stash collecting spiderwebs
  • I didn't win a single game of TC 87 Bingo! (but that's a good thing)
  • Happiest finds: 1. Near Perfect Ghostflame (239/14) 2. Lo Rune 3. Perfect Soul Harvest and Nature's Peace 4. Very nice Dragonscale role (182/25/19) 5. 48% War Trav's
  • Baal is a S-T-I-N-G-Y mofo; only 2 of my 5 qualifiers dropped from him (Head Hunter's and ofc Destroyer Helm); the rest from his minions - Don't run Baal!!
  • Baal dropped a total of 3 TC 87s in 40 hours (avg run time = 3:45) - Don't run Baal!!
  • My (unreported) score from 2nd Baal set:
  • Boneflame 11.0
    Demonhorn's Edge 7.6
    Steel Shade 6.3
    Steel Shade 6.3
    Soul Drainer 6.3

Other:
A lot of these that did drop were skipped due to hostile environment. Like I said, not clearing a room full of Vipers for a Sol rune. I did pick up a LOT more stuff like this than I normally would, so it'll be back to focusing on XP with the occasional stop for a real good drop.
Ral - 14
Sol - 9
P Amethyst (Gem Shrines) - 34
P Ruby (Gem Shrines when out of Flawless Amethyst) - 5
Ilvl 95 GC - 10 (thought this was higher, seemingly skipped a lot)
Junk Jewel - 28
Random Flawless Gem - 119

E: on a side note the massive free thread I’ll post after 99 is growing by the day. ;)

Summary:
728 WSK 2&3 runs
146 Jewels
129 Small Charms
133 Grand Charms

WSK map is the same one from the WSK tournament. 728 runs over 20 hours works out to about 1:39 per run. The number of jewels and charms picked up indicate about half the rune-finding efficiency of my Cow sets from RFL. I didn't do a count of the bosses, but I'd guess 5-6 bosses per level, but a portion of those were unbreakable cold immune. Running with 458% MF.

Most of my top scoring finds dropped early on, so I wasn't too frustrated with the lackluster second half of the set. At first I didn't pick up any runes under Pul, but towards the end I relented with the Fal rune, just to have a 5th qualifier.

As you can see from the video, that Zod rune came from a small cluster of normal Cadavers, an amount that I normally wouldn't engage. I mistook it as a boss group and went back to drop a Blizzard on it. Even when I realized it wasn't a boss group, I decided to just finish off the pack, and that turned out to be a great decision.

In general, very competitive across the board, which was cool to see :cool: I enjoy these kinds of tourneys because it helps me focus on my main goal of progressing 99ers. Even so, I was pleased with my results, which had depth of quality in S/U but nothing super high-scoring; that late Darkforce would have helped a lot, but it was not to be! And on the runes, I blew my WSK score out of the water, although I don’t think I broke 5 points over that 20-hour set, which was dreadful luck and not really saying too much :rolleyes:

We’ll start with a haul pic of top 5 S/U and all Mal+ runs, some stats on qualifiers found, and then a rundown of the set with screenshots of the quality drops:
1596718300971.png
I didn’t bother including other TC87 drops because they were the low-scoring set items (3 B-K swords, 2 Griz Coronas and 1 Ma’avina diadem). In total, he found 67 S/U qualifiers over the 20 hours and 43 rune qualifiers, broken down as follows:
Code:
Hel 7
Io 7
Lum 9
Ko 5
Fal 5
Lem 2
Pul 1
Um 1
Mal 2
Ist 2
Gul 1
Vex 0
Ohm 1
Nothing higher :(
Set Summary. We got off to an auspicious start. I was gone backpacking the first weekend, but got up early Saturday to get in 30 minutes before we left. It was productive to say the least, with Set Corona the first S/U qualifier, followed by Steelrend. So a 10+ pointer right off the bat :)

When we returned, a quick morning session yielded an Ohm as the second rune qualifier (after a Lum) and then a Gul when we ran a little bit more before bed. So I knew I’d already beaten my WSK rune score! We picked up a Pul and a Mal the next evening during 30 minutes before bed.

We ran a couple hours that first Friday during the tourney, netting the Griffon’s. He actually ended up wearing it when we converted to 125 FCR set up when he hit level 96 after the first 10 hours or so. (The +1 skill is better than the 1/20 necro coronet that he has.)

We put in a solid chunk of time on Saturday, hitting level 96 just before 10 hours after starting at 95.5 (and one dumb death with corpse recovery mixed in). For the day, he picked up Thunderstroke and Firelizard’s Talons, which were in top 5 at the time, and another Ist and an Um to round out a top 5 on the runes (plus another Pul). On Sunday, we briefly switched to 125 FCR set up, picking up another Mal and Eaglehorn, Glad’s Bane, and Veil of Steel, of which I recall that only Eaglehorn improved the top 5.

Brief spells over the next two days didn’t yield any qualifiers except another Set Corona, which didn’t merit a screen shot at this point I guess? (The unique would have improved final score a bit.)

We made the final push on Wednesday. Heaven’s Light fell early in this stretch to improve top 5, followed by Halaberd’s Reign which briefly did the same before being further improved by Ghostflame. The Unique Ward fell but didn’t improve the top 5, followed by another Ist to round out the top 5 runes, and then Griz Shield dropped right around the 19-hour mark to round out the S/U top 5 and push out the Halaberd’s. Arachnid’s and another Eaglehorn were the final qualifiers over the last hour.

As noted, after the set ended, we got Darkforce, in addition to a 2os Giant Skull and a 5/5 cold facet. So, as a said, all-in-all a solid set and much fun. But the best "drop" of the tourney for me was this (with an assist to some running after my set’s completion):

Thanks again to @ffs for hosting, and everyone who ran and contributed to the build-up. I plan to post the MFO sign up thread this upcoming weekend, so the SPF awesomeness will continue! I also want to get some input on a few thing before posting sign-up, so look for that tomorrow or the next day.

I ended up with 43 S/U qualifiers and as much as I'm happy with my +2 Darkforce spawn, 68 Kira and [email protected] gc, I don't think I've found anything useful at all lol.

I went from 92 to almost 95 though.

@NanoMist Grats again on the win, some very nice drop quality there!
@PhineasB Great progress on your Necro, and cool drops. Shame about that Darkforce spawn dropping just a little bit too late! Same question though - what's the Griffon's roll!?

Haul pics:

1596718486285.png

Runes Fal+

1596718495915.png

It's somewhat of a random selection, but the main ones are in there anyway. Can't complain about the haul, but again I didn't get the top notch quality I was hoping for. No 27+ pointer and runes higher than Ber. However, overall very happy with the haul of course, as well as efficiency of runs, which is what I care about the most in tournaments like this! ;)

Happy about Shadow Dancers in particular, as this was "half" a grailer: Found it before but threw it away for being eth in pre-GoMule times. :rolleyes: Grail now (or still) at -3, missing Tyrael's Might, Astreon's Iron Ward and Darkforce Spawn. MFO better deliver in that regard!

Qualifiers:
S&U: 83, of which 29 Armor and 54 Weapons
TC87: 17
Runes Hel+: 36 (though I left some Hel-Io on the ground towards the end)

Other drops:
Didn't pick up all that much apart from qualifiers. Posted a couple of noteworthy non-qualifiers here.
Flawless Rubies: 39
Flawless Amethysts: 43
Ral: 23
Sol: 18
Skillers: 3 (Graverobber, Fletcher, Mentalist)

Run time was split as follows:
Hours ~1-2: P8 Pit WW Barb until he hit 93, as I wanted to level my Pitzerker a bit in anticipation of the MFO.
Hours ~2-18: P7 Novamancer. Posted about him in the running thread, see gameplay vid and gear.
Hours ~19-20: P1 Pitzerker, to actually warm up for the MFO. ;)

P7 Novamancer runs were about 60-70 seconds on his very nice Pit map, super small and spawns about ~6.8 boss packs per run on average. In between I spent some 30 minutes total running with Javazon and 99er Fishymancer, but I was already in a groove with my Necro so I just stuck with him for the vast majority of the 20 hours.

The two Bers dropped within the first ~6 hours, as well as most of my top 5 S&Us. Then came somewhat of a draught for the next ~8-9 hours, however managed to bit by bit improve the top 5 score to all 10+ pointers making my way towards the 15 hour mark. Shadow Dancer dropped after ~18 hours. Last rune qualifier (Gul, replacing a Mal) was found 30 minutes before the end (apparently Pitzerkers can find runes also).

Again, thanks all for the great participation. Would love to do this again some time!

Congrats to all winners !!! Apparantly it was a very tight race in all categories, and for most spots, which makes this a very exciting tournament. Except for areas obviously, where @NanoMist absolutely crushed the opposition (again). Zod alone shows who's the boss, but his other drops are impressive too, to say the least. I guess we'll have to find some kind of 'Nanomist vs SPF' tournament, where the SPF actually stands a chance to begin with ... :rolleyes:.

As for myself, winning the category is always nice of course, but unlike other tournaments I participated in, it didn't really matter to me to be honest. I was purely going for xp, and since I knew @Yng had the same motivation in this tournament and @Neksja only partially joined us, also with xp as biggest motivation, there wasn't much to win or loose for us. Still I'm very happy I participated in the first place, as this tournament gave me a very good and much needed incentive to actually start running Neverland again. I 'only' have 100M to go now, and ever since crossing the 3400M mark, I have a very good feeling about reaching that lvl 99 goal, so yeah, the tournament really did a lot for me.

Early on I was killing Ghost type monsters and bigger mobs, especially those around Nihl, to increase my chances in the tournament. However, as time passed, I already had a better score than I expected and I realized that monsters other than the Ghosts had too small chances to get good rune drops, I decided to completely focus on xp again, with the exception of Ghosts, which I kept on killing. This resulted in 3 - 3.1 M/hour xp, compared to 2.5 - 2.7 M/hour early on.

I might keep this setup for the rest of Neverland's journey to 99, as run times are only a tad slower, if any at all, I loose some 100 hitpoints but gain 150% mf or so.

Ok, pics ... this is my overall top 5 haul.
1596771820610.png
Also got a Mal and quite some other Hel+ runes, although mainly Dol and Io. S/U was quite nice too, but nothing spectecular like the DWeb or DFathom I got from Nihl earlier. Neverland did find a grailer for her though, but I realized too late (since she found most of my grail, but this one was no overall grailer) the Infernal Cranium actually was one, hence no screenshot. Also, the eth Felloak I posted about in the running thread was a really nice drop, netting me 3 eth TC3 items from Nihl.

I found two of my S/U qualifiers in the first hour of so of running: HHG and Wolfhowl.

1596771777488.png

1596771694867.png

The next hour was a very good one, with 2 Hel, 2 Dol, 1 Lum and 1 Mal already providing a rune top 5. Next to that Razor's Edge, Arachnid's, The Gladiator's Bane, Djinn Slayer and Arkaine's Valor. Unfortunately the game crashed due to the Delirium bug, so I couldn't pick that up. Alas, as it would have been a slight upgrade for my S/U score.

1596771881883.png

Around the 3 hour mark Ondal's Wisdom and Schaeffer's dropped in quick succession. Apparantly I didn't take a screenshot of the Ondal's though. The Schaeffer's made me smile, as just before it there had been a discussion in the running thread about how scoring of uniques which can have 2 different outcomes for 1 and the same base item, wasn't correct.

1596922088527.png

At 3:50 an Ist dropped

1596771947401.png

not long after that followed by Halaberd's Reign

1596773937787.png

After some 7 hours I got my highest rune, a Vex from a Ghost pack.

1596773956746.png

Not long after that I also got my second M'avina's Bow, a Lem, an Andariel's Visage, and I hit 3400M xp.

Then I had somewhat of a dry streak, although I still got an Um ...

1596773965564.png

... and a Tomb Reaver (1os unfortunately), the eth Felloak and my third pair of Sandstorm Treks.

As time went on, I started focusing on xp more, so drops decreased somewhat. Still I managed to get quite some good items in the last 5 - 6 hour stretch. First a 27% Mara's, which was an upgrade from Neverland's 23% one, so she started using it right away. Then Bonehew (another one would drop near the end), the Infernal Cranium grailer, M'avina's Embrace, fourth Credendum, Pul, Reaper's Toll and Jalal's.

Second Ist dropped on Friday evening, around the 15 hour mark. For some reason I thought that the tournament finished that evening, so I was happy to find another top 5 rune so close to ending.

1596773975839.png

When I found out I was wrong, I decided to do one more hour on Sunday evening, mainly to get to that -100M xp milestone. Fortunately, next to a Lightsabre, the second Bonehew and Gimmershred's, I also found an Um, providing a slight upgrade for my rune top 5. Something I only found out when submitting my score, as I forgot that Um > Mal when it comes to scoring, despite the fact that it is a lower rune.

@ffs Thanks a lot for hosting !!! Looking forward to the MFO. I'll be a bit rusty for that one though, as I'm going on holiday first :p. I'll probably spend that entire 2 weeks thinking about how to beat Nanomist though ;).

Haul pic doesn't look too impressive when you don't have much to show for outside of top5. I guess I could have thrown in couple of outside of top5 TC87s I found, but still, not too amazing. I'm happy with my results, don't get me wrong, but I am hoping for a proper haul pic for MFO, where I have to split my finds to multiple pics! One can dream, eh?

As I mentioned previously, RL kinda got in the way here and I only managed just over 10 hours. Disappointing to not complete a whole set, but them's the breaks sometimes. Not a whole lot to say about my set, other than getting lucky right at the end with both Guls and Boneshade/Azurewrath coming in the last hour or so of running to push em into top 10 territory.

All running was done with my Poison necro in the Pits. Almost dinged 96, but unfortunately ran out of time at the end. On to the pics!

Top 5 S/U:
Boneflame
Executioner's Justice
Steel Pillar
Boneshade
Azurewrath (sorry phar)

The REAL goodness of this set comes in non-qualifying finds though. Have a little gander at these skillers that he found along the way:

Code:
Harpoonist's Grand Charm of Sustenance

Version: Expansion 1.10+
+1 to Javelin and Spear Skills (Amazon Only)

Fingerprint: 0x489e5002
Item Level: 85

Required Level: 53
Fingerprint: 0x9676c625
Item Level: 85

+34 to Life

The fact that two of them are his exact skillset is pretty bonkers and that other one will look very tasty on my baal java, so I'm officially happy with my goodies in this tournament. ;) Thanks of course to @ffs for hosting, and to all the runners for all the motivation and cool finds to be jealous of.

Well done, SPF. Very jealous of all those sweet finds, especially the several Tal Armor's posted earlier.

I've never participated in an MFO of any kind. I just don't think I have the stamina. In HC it takes me about 20 mins to clear WSK, but maybe I'll have a decent character for it in the future.
Wow @Pb_pal those Fungal skillers are awesome, and really sweet to find with your necro! Pestilence is jealous :p
No no, nope! You and your 99er Necro still don't get to complain for another year. ;)

WSK is quite hard. Take an easier target for MFO, like Pindle, AT or Pits. Since mf runs are done on p1, they should be relatively safe, even on HC. High end characters have up to 500% - 700% mf, but even with 200% you get a lot of S/U, which allows for plenty of defensive mods to be taken on gear.

So yes, we'd love to have you in the upcoming MFO. Even if you are slower than the rest, you'll never know what you'll find. And such tourneys are lots of fun !!
Congratulations to all participants on achieving so much XP, so many useful items, and so many Grailers. Kudos to @ffs for devising a tournament in which every participant was a winner, regardless of point standings. :)

The Astreon's I found while play testing the map, and the Ohm came from the super chest, so neither were included in my score (and both would have really helped a lot). Still, I thought it would be a shame not to show them. The hydra bow is 4os and 12% ed, so I could make a pretty cool runeword with it some day. Despite coming up with a so-so score, I think my first tournament was a huge success. It was a fun way to motivate myself to do some magic finding and get a good chunk of XP. I'm looking forward to the MFO coming up at the end of August.

My own score was nothing to write home about, and @ffs seems to have made the wise call to keep my qualifiers secret to everybody ;) All in all, I had pretty rotten luck, as I kinda predicted when I found Ber, Cham and CoA just before the tourney :mad: Out of 57 Elite S/Us only 4 were tc87 (The Grandfather, Ghostflame, 2x Griswold's Valor), and none were 10+ pointers.

I ran for 19 hours, but might as well stopped at 10. Last 9 hours were absolutely abysmal in terms of drops. 4 of My top 5 runes dropped during first 5 hours, and last Gul around hours 15 didn't call for much celebration. Had fun though, got some levels and other things, good amount of crafting supplies, all that jazz. Like I stated earlier, my pace was pretty easygoing, runtimes around 1:30-1:50. Picked up lots of magic and rare items as well, but found nothing super good. Some close calls though.

I'm happy I contributed. Now I have something to look towards in MFO. Still at grail -6, so I'd be pretty happy if that number would change. Could use some luck. When it matters.

Found the Ohm and Jah in quick succession after the tourney, Steelrends a bit later. Who knows what would've happened during that last hour, if I could have made it. Timing really is everything :confused:

Ah sorry, didn't realize your top 5 didn't show in the top 10 @Burgomaster3, will include them later! See you in the MFO, definitely I'm hoping for some better high quality luck myself when it comes around! ;)
Congrats to all the winners! For me almost all of my qualifiers came from Baal himself, I think only one of the 20 qualifiers I found came from the waves group. I was most disappointed that in 10+ hours of running my best rune was an Io.

Not good at haul pics (how do people get all of their finds in one screen shot when there is too much in their inventory?), but here is the qualifiers I did get:
Demonhorn's Edge
Spike Thorn
Messerschmidt's Reaver
Eaglehorn
Horizon's Tornado (grailer)
Windhammer (x2)
The Gladiator's Bane
Trang-Oul's Girth
Taebaek's Glory
Wraith Flight
Jade Talon
Laying of Hands
Sazabi's Cobalt Redeemer
Ondal's Almighty
Viperfork
Ethereal Edge
Shadow Killer
Arioc's Needle
Dark Adherent
Immortal King's Stone Crusher
Grats to the winners and big thumbs up for @ffs for hosting this!

Somehow I'm not surprised NanoMist winning the alvl 85 ++ category :rolleyes: Still, amazing job finding Zod and a +27 pointer within 20 hours! Most people won't find neither during their entire D2 "career" :)

As I said in the running thread, I couldn't make it this time. I actually run some, but very little. Shame, it was fun with my Pit Nec during those few runs.

Something I found:

If only it did have ctc amp... I'd use it on A1 merc for one or two of my rare only sept chars

Edit: epic skillers, @Pb_pal ! Slightly jealous!
