Haha, alright!

I think the moment that summed up this MFO for me was my final run. I told myself going in that this was my last one and I would be finished and Mephisto dropped a shiny golden Scourge. Was afraid it would be another Horizon's, but boy was I surprised.

Congrats to Aman (traitor), DC and Tigereye for 1st in their categories.

I guess I'll take:

Cattleya's Lash
dune's Keeper
purplelocust's Valor
Musilis' Headhunter's Glory

Sorry guys. :p

I have never seen so many freaking stormlash's before. What the crap.

Good job all you guys. I'm sorry I was an utter failure in this MFO, let my team down, failed to kick DC in the testicular fortitude and all.

Good job again on some freaking awesome finds. How many fathoms is that for you DC? Like 15?

Holy Cr**, yes, capital C. I declare hax on all categories. I really fear the next MFO. Congratulations DC, LORD_NIKON and all the winners.

*bows in awe of the finds,,,,,,.....

Funny story though, when my DF dropped, i first thought it was a dimensional blade, i only picked it up to see if it was ethereal. It turned out to be ethereal, but not ginthers.....really shouln't be playing late at night.

As for screenshots of my haul:

Wow, congrats to Tigereye and Drixx!!!!! HOLY FREAKIN MOLY!!! I can't believe those scores. I was scrolling down and saw DC had a score of 102 in the area 85s and just thought wow.

Then I see both of you beat that by almost 10 points! Those are absolutely insane results. I felt like I had a very respectable score in the mid 60s. Some how that only got me 6th though. Congrats to all!

I'm just hoping I get to hang onto my Death's Web, because Drixx is the only HC above me and you found one! My roll was pretty horrible, so I hope you decide not to take it Drixx. Here's the readout of my Death's Web. I am very very happy that I found it. My first and only uber rare that I've ever found.

Death's Web 👍

edit: I still can't get over the fact that Drixx actually got beat. Tiger and Drixx, both of your top 3 are absolutely insane. People don't find those in years of playing and you both did it in a week!

I've done 3k p1 AT runs with ~505 MF, killing about 6 boss packs. Average run time was 1:20-1:30.

The haul

I've included items found in the 100 practice runs i did before the event cause that were the luckiest 100 runs EVER (see IFT), so this is actually a haul from 3.1k AT runs:smiley:.

Gratz to all the winners, thanks to jjscud and the supervisors (especially jingizu:flowers:) for the hosting.

Congrats to all competitors for finishing what seems a rather arduous week of MFing. And an especially big round of applause to all winners and place getters. Can I ask first place getters to tell us what chars and equipment they used for this competition and what a typical day in the MFO is like. I'm interested in building something for next years MFO but would also like to know the kind of a disruption to ones RL.

DaveW:

I took off work this week to run MFO.

I believe that says enough as to how much it took for me to win since I didn't find that Stormlash until my very last run.

The build I used to run Meph was a simple cold sorc focusing around Frozen Orb with Blizzard as backup.

Equipment on the sorc was:

Shako
Occulus
Tals Armor
Tals Ammy
Tals Belt
Mosers with 2 pdiamonds
Chancies
2x Nagels
War Travs

Not overly expensive as I found at least two of each of those items (minus tals armor of course) during the MFO.

I ran for ~8-10 hours a day not including multiple breaks throughout.

Basically, I had no RL beyond eating, sleeping and diablo.

Now I can finally go back to my normal everyday routine and resume my social life where I left it off last weekend.

It's rather scary that I did 2091 runs (the last one for good luck) and came in 7th....7th!! Guess to come in the top 3rd I need twice that many.

Congrats to all the winners of their repected categories and to jjscud for hosting! :flowers:

So Installed where do I send your well deserved prize?

Still was able to round out all my needed quest items quite nicely. If anyone was interested here's my loot:

Perhaps this was my downfall. I strategised for kills per run, rather than runs per time. I did Tunnel and Pit runs, doing full clears on each. My sorc isn't very powerful imho, and they took quite long time to finish. Both of my Frostwinds came from ilvl 85 monsters, and the Ist was from an ilvl 85 zombie, so I suppose it wasn't a total waste, but 13th out of 15, nothing to brag about. :embarassed: I was quite disappointed w/ The Pits, all of my top 5 came from the Tunnels and my only skiller and both HRs were from the Tunnels too.

Anyways, here's my complete haul. This includes [highlight]all[/highlight] of my qualifiers, minus an Ormus Robe that I forgot to add in. :rolleyes:

Urkels Haul


As for the items themselves, the Valor is + 2, the Demon Limb came out ethereal, and the Crown of Ages only got one socket. :rant:

But none the less, I had a blast, see you all in the winter mfo (hopefully).

Firstly, let me congratulate Tigerseye on beating me. I ran my brains out and had very strong fortune and still didn't win. I added many grailers though and since no other HC folks finished in the standings to take items, I'll take my 3 picks.

My apology ahead of time to the other two HC folks... Let me make this offer to both of you (if it's permissable by the rules). There are other (lesser) items that I'm seeking to flesh out builds that I'd like to do for my sept. If you have any of these items (from this MFO), I'll replace 1 for 1 and not take your top finds:

Windforce
Ethereal Titan's
Immortal King's Soul Cage


From Tripsu:
Templar's Might
Executioner's Justice

From HP_Sauce:
Darkforce Spawn



If not, just know all three of these items will be used by characters, not just taking to fill a grail.

*Bans Installed* :evil:

I'll send out the lash tomorrow. Some fires knocked out our power for the last four hours, and we've got it back now, but somehow firing up my desktop beast doesn't seem to be in the spirit of conservation they are asking of us right now while they bring stuff back online. :wink3: (Not to mention I don't trust the power to actually stay on. 😁 )

I really need to get my UPS that can run my desktop set up...

Anyhow, I'll be skipping taking prizes, so it moves on to Dune.

Edit: Sorry, I'm having internet issues right now, so hopefully this isn't a quadruple post.

Edit: screw that, CONGRATS TO EVERYBODY! Just phenomenal finds! I can't believe how badly I got pwnt, and I can't believe some other's scores. Just amazing.

Also, thanks JJ for organizing everything, and thanks to Naab for being our supervisor!

I will try to upload my pretty picture in few minutes.

Edit2: Pretty picture.
The Amulet is a Highlords Wraith and there was a Mara's which I forgot to toss on the ground. There were a few other nice finds and some doubles also, but I couldn't fit everything onto one character and I can't MP with myself atm, so it's just my favorites.

I'll take them (but only if you got them during the MFO... as this is MFO prize taking). It doesn't even really matter the roll... I just want to get my zon going :)
Woops! I feel silly. I guess I got a little excited there and forgot that you had included the requirement of "only from this MFO". I'm sorry, the Eth Titans definitely do not fit that requirement. I'll send the Darkforce Spawn to you sometime in the next 30 minutes as I have none of the other things. Again, I'm really really sorry for wasting your time and thread space.
