Mini-MFO X (The Second Rune Hunt)

Short, short version of rules:
Find runes, keep the goods! This weekend!

NOTE: I was a bit hesitant to do this during the MFL but it'll be down to 5 participants by the weekend and only requires 2 hours so I think we'll be ok.

The rules:

1- Start whenever you want and end 60 hours later (2 1/2 days).
Examples:
Start 8:00 AM Thursday, End 8:00 PM Saturday
Start Noon Friday, End Midnight Sunday
Start 7:59 PM Monday, End 7:59 AM Wednesday
Start 19:59 Monday, End 7:59 Wednesday

NOTE: The deadline for submitting the results by midnight (23:59) Monday the 29th GMT is very firm so you should start no later than Saturday the 27th

2- No subscription fee! The winner will add to the Mini-MFO trophey case. I'm planning a fancier webbased trophey case in the near future.

3- This is a general rune hunt. The only restriction are targets that have highly altered rune drops. These are quest drops (only hellforge and Ral-Ort-Tal from Act V) and the Countess.

4- Do Not post your findings prior to the ending.

5- When it is over, send to jjscud at yahoo.com the following:

- Your forum name. (PLEASE!!)
- Character info (class, build, level).
- ATMA readings of thy 3 highest runes. Similar to the the proposed trading rules, screenshot anything Ist and higher while its still on the ground. (Hit print screen while holding alt)
- Total points, added properly as explained below.

5.1- Results MUST be sent by midnight Monday the 29th GMT.

6- The competitor who gets the highest score wins. Rarity shall be measured by a list where each valid item is followed by a number that indicates how rare it is (the bigger the number the rarer the item). Scores are determined by the top three scores.

6.1- If a tie occurs, top rune wins.

6.2- If the tie persists, then it is a draw.

7- No items shall be claimed from winners at this edition. Finder's keeper's, if you prefer.

8- Doubts, subscriptions and further suggestions shall be posted in this thread for everybody's knowledge.

9. Scoring:

El 1
Eld 2
Tir 3
Nef 4
Eth 5
Ith 6
Tal 7
Ral 8

Vex 26
Ohm 27
Lo 28
Sur 29

10. Remeber that this is just for fun. If you are a but unsure of your rune hunting prowess, feel free to enter, do whatever runs (or full clears for once) you would normally do (pindle, meph etc...) and just keep track of the runes.

Here's a link to the last rune hunt if you want an idea of how it went.

I'm in

(10 chars)
put me down as well, do we have to declare what areas we are going to be running???
I'll have a go again, and hope to do better than my last effort (3 Hel runes in cows was all I had to show for enduring thousands of "Moo" sounds.) I think this time I'll try LK runs with a high FCR sorc.
I'm in. I hope to find better than a Mal this time around.
I'm in as well and should have a good amount of time to play. 😁
Bah... I guess I'll have to do this one (my first Rune Hunt Tourney...)

I'm wondering if I should do LK (highest rune there is Amn for me IIRC) or Arcane Sanctuary (I've had a lot of runes drop there on 1 run before)...

Doesn't take long to clear AS and of course there's all the superchests at the 3 false paths... Then the summoner who can drop a Lo (IIRC from Urlik's Rune Finding Guide)...

👍

GL everyone!!!

Aerwynd
The way the scoring works is that just the top three runes count, so getting lots of runes isn't as high scoring as getting just a couple of high ones. For example, Lum (17) Io (16) and Shael (13) would beat fifty Dols (14 each, but only the first three count.) I have no idea if cubing up is allowed to improve scores, though! It could help in that case...
I've had IOs drop in AS before (I think...) So 3x Io would be 48 instead of 46 (your example) 😁

I get your point though... If I get a Ber, Vex, and Io in LK, but only 3x Io in AS...

I'll have to look up the monsters in AS in ATMA's Drop Calc to see what the highest they can drop...

I don't have a lot of luck w/ LK though...

Aerwynd
Is cubing allowed?

Edit: Removed [color] tags which mysteriously appeared.
VCrow said:
Is cubing allowed?
I'll stick with what I previously said

jjscud said:
Remeber, its the top three runes found. Only your top three runes count and they must be found, not cubed.

Ok, just a side contest, if anyone (even second place) can beat the winners score by cubing the runes they found, I'll give them a Windforce (RRM/RWM, or any other non-grail item that I have). Only the highest score counts, i.e. if two people can beat the top score then only the highest get the Windforce

And I'll mention that I have a non-grail Stormlash also as a potential pick.

Edit: I should also oficially mention that i'm in.
Well with all the Chams, Surs, and Jahs floating around here, I am in. Expect my start time soon.
I'm in this weekend, I'll be finishing up my assassin anyways and cutting down on playing so some LK and general rune running might be a nice change of pace. Maybe I'll do better than last time too.
I'm in... time to put my LFzon to work :)
Arrghh... this couldn't have come @ more worse time than this. I'd definately enter, but RL and my final exams are coming just around the corner and I really have to finish some courses and I pretty much have this entire week stuffed full with schoolwork, so no runes from me :sad2:

4th place wasn't soo bad now, was it? :point:

EDIT: I'm in again. Although, since the last rune hunt, the highest rune I've gotten from LK is Lum.
The highest rune I've had drop for me outside of the forge ever is Lum, but whatever. Count me in. I'll probably run cows if I ever Mat my LF zon. If not, I'll try LK.
jrlafrance said:

No it wasn't, I couldn't have expected more. I'm just kidding around. As long as I beat grogs I'm happy. :evil: :neener:

And for the record, I prefer to see it as: we tied for 3rd spot.
Blizzard sorc = Izual
Lightning zon = Cows
Fire sorc = Flayers
Lightning sorc = Arcane Sanctuary
Meteorb sorc = LK

I'm ready and set.
Cows,lk and AS for me.

This sounds like fun, I've never done a rune hunt. I'll prob. run cows maybe try some LK runs.
I'll just be sticking to LK for this, got a lot of free time after tomorrow but I want to get a good number of Pindle runs in too:tongue:
I'm in will probably be doing just LK.
count me in with an original char (compared to the chaff offered by corr etc :p) and in an original place .. not fully original but we will see.
I'm in. Prediction for myself: Lum, Hel, Shael.....anything better will be a pleasant surprise.
Im in. Havent decided who and what char to run yet. Whatever i decide it should be fun. Is there going to be a table set up for this?
Is there any reasonable way to deal with the huge mounds of items that drop when running cows for runes? I am always listening for the "rune/gem/jewel/ring drop" sound since they don't always show up when you hold down alt if there are too many items already there. And sorting through the drops to find the runes takes a long time. I get the feeling that I'm sure to be missing some runes amoung all that debris- does anyone have good advice for that? I don't use RRM but even so, if the rune doesn't appear, being highlighted in red wouldn't help!
ill grab the gold and potions, and keep using the potions as i go. Helps sometimes
I do that too (chug gobs of potions), but still there are too many items often to see what is on the ground and it takes a while.
What the heck, nothing to lose. I have never seriously ran LK before, and I need some lowish-mid runes anyway. I will try it.

We all have our delusions. I prefer to see it as: jjscud listed me 3rd, and you 4th. :badteeth:

I was going to let this thread slide by and not get involved, but that sounds like a challenge DC :)

Will be running Baal with my trapper, and will sneak in some cows with my javazon.
That's exactly what it is. Now we need to persuade Marvel to join as well, and it'll be one sick mini-MFO.
Well, I've almost finished a LF javazon that says cows are for bbq'ing. I will have to join in the fun.

Marvel has that shiny new Zon as well.... I'm sure we could persuade him to join us in PO this weekend:wink3:
I am in too. I have found a nice rune last time and wouldn't mind having similar drop again.

I am also trying to roll a LK map which would drop a Monarch from a rack regularly, but no luck yet, is it even possible? (I know it should be, racks should drop all items with qlvl<alvl based on the rarity column in Armor.txt, but I didn't see any elite non-classspecific shields after ~50 rerolls. I do run each map with two huts several times...)
What are you looking for in the Monarch, Jeweler's of Amicae or ...??
Timinator said:

Hey, Izual is pretty original! :badteeth:


As for the cow issue, I try to balance out the herd to it's maximum efficiency; allowing the herd to be as big as possible to benefit the most from LF, while maintaining an almost clear field of drops. My runs are 5-6 minutes when I'm lazy, and sub 5 when I'm not. (Which is rare, by the way :badteeth:)

I will be running from Friday 12:00 to Sunday 00:00 CET [GMT +1]
Tigereye said:

That wouldn't hurt either but I look for Jeweler's of Deflecting.
Count me in as well. I'll let you know the details later, probably LK.

I'll join up. I just rolled the perfect LK map for this event (WP next to first campfire which is next to 2nd campfire)
Count me in. I am planning to do some MFing anyway.

I will be doing:

LK runs(and maybe tunnels) with my cold sorc
Baal, Pindle(and maybe cows) with my LF zon
WSK clears/Baal with a summoner necro
Count me in as well. I've got special table for this event so I'm looking forward to write down my rune prey :cool:

blizz sorc for mausoleum/crypt + burial grounds, tunnels, WSK/Baal
edit: and LK as well

Most probably I will start on Friday 8:00 and stop on Sunday 20:00.
I'm not going to win but only take part for fun. But getting my friend krovak's scalp would not be so bad :wink3:
Sounds like a challenge. Let's see:cool:

I've had one rack that dropped a Monarch, but the map had only one campfire so I didn't keep it. Maybe it was just a rare exception.
I will start at 20:00 Friday and finish 20:00 Sunday. Not the full 60 hours as work and wife require some attention.
😆 😆 😆




Unfortunatelly I don't have enough time these days so I won't be able to participate. O course I would finish this MFO on last place with my rune-luck (something like Ort, Eld, El) :rolleyes:

Cool, quite a few hunters. :cool:
I started my runs yesterday morning. So I finish tonight. Replenishing my El stock, nicely at the mo ... :rolleyes:
Awww this is my kind of tourney, thing is cant finda rune anyway in classic, maybe I should look through the stickies ^^. Good luck to everyone anyway, I hope to see some funky runewords after this event please!
Ok then... im running only for runes anyway so i guess this makes dc and grogs happy.

Im going for cows and wsk.
Started this morning... Puts my end time Sat Night...

GL 2 All 👍

Aerwynd
I started Wednesday morning so I'll stop Friday evening. Good luck to all!
Finished mine. Did Cows mainly, with a few WSK/Shenk/Eldritch/Pindles.
EDIT: Sent my results in. JJ make sure you aren't holding anything that might spill/you may choke on when you read the mail. 😁
I am going to start on Saturday at 9 am GMT so i will end on monday at 9 pm GMT. Good luck everybody:wink3:

Yes it does :)

OK, I'm scared now:scared::worry::nervous::yikes:
My time's up. Tonight was very depressing. I ran LK for about 45 minutes and found zero runes. I did find a lot of nice charms/jewels etc. but no runes.

After my dry spell, I then got 4 El's in 6 runs.

With 30 minutes left, I decided to run for one more rune. The next rune to drop was a :flip: and that made the night a good one. Sorry, have to wait until the official results are posted

Will post interesting finds in the item find thread and send results to jjscud
at least nikon won't pinch another lash from you .. then go to wow and not use it :p

It's on! :badteeth:
If I'm not too late, I'll give it a go. I imagine I'll at least get a Thul out of it. :rolleyes: I'll probably kill some cows..
I started my runs last night. Only thing is I forgot to sign up beforehand. Do I have to start from scratch now?

For the record, I'm in.
We can start until the 27th right? If this is the case, then I might give it a go!
Where is that edit button?


Ok, due to heavy RL, I'm dropping out before I was actually in. So, definitely a no go for me.

Well, I don't want to be a pain but I had already told others that you definately have to signup before you start. I think it best to restart.

If you found that super duper rune before you signed up, it will be questioned and if you didn't find anything, you might as well restart anyways.

Adding, Marvel, nubikoen, and lachen to the list.


edit: Yes, it is just runes that are supposed to be kept quite.
Timinator said:

Don't remind me of that. I'm still looking for another one...:sad2:

Only 10 or so more trades and 2 more months and then I can maybe try to buy one though...
I've got a question about talking about your finds. Is it only runes that we cannot mention before the end of the tourney or does it apply to all finds?
Just the runes since they are the only thing that counts in this mini-mfo.
jjscud said:

You'll get no complaints from me for that, best I found last night was a sol anyway :)
One thing to mention is that for those who get good rune drops from LK superchests, it may be helpful to keep screenshots and add to the data being gathered in this thread trying to understand patterns in the drops there.
I'm starting now. Good luck all! (including myself 👅 )
I'm finished and the result is sent. I didn't run as much as I thought I would because it was just too boring.

Big thank you to jjscud for organizing this. 😃

Sigh, I regret to inform everyone that I had a prior commitment tomorrow, so I actually lost about 24 hrs, but I already sent in my results... I'll probably be pretty low on the list, but it was fun, I'm looking forward to getting my HC CL/FO Sorc ready to run Countess (Rune Hunter) and hopefully the next Mini MFO that comes along, she will be able to participate (might do cows if she gets that far by the next MFO)

GL 2 All...

Aerwynd
Well, I can't resist. Just when I thought I was out. Damn you jjscud. 😃

I'm starting now 7:00am EST US time. I'll send my results tomorrow night. Hopefully, I'll be as lucky as I was last time around. But I doubt it. My CL/FO has a great LK map though.

GL forumites.
I started last night... and learned that as much fun as killing cows with LF is at first, it does take some practice. Next I learned that the increased stack size on Titans might be the most important mod for this task... and I haven't found a titans for my zon. 👅
My runs are going to be more diversified... some Arcane sanct, some LK with sorc. So far one shape shifting skiller (plain) and few runes, but another 48 hours to go still.😃

I started last night. I'm running cows with my Zon (she does have titans).:laugh:

Have only found 2 runes so far and they are nothing to write home about sadly. But....the cows did drop a Lightsaber last night. In fact I only did 3 runs and found 3 golds. Which is sad considering I pretty much deMF'ed her for this rune hunt.

It's nice having her wiht very little MF. She is now hitting the last breakpoint for javilins and she is kicking some cow butt.

She has a bit of lighting damage to all on her and its so funny when a giant pack of hearded cows all moo in pain together.


@crazy_bear. I do have some extra titans laying around if you want, they are pretty low on the %damage I think, but if you want them just PM me.
Im only going to be able to have less than 50 hours, but i guess it wont hurt to participate anyway.
After several hours of getting no nice runes at all(the highest being ... - insert a semi-common rune here) i decided to change the equipment my sorc was using. I replaced skullders with a vipermagi, shako/ptopaz with shako/um and removed all resist charms from the backpack to be able to pick up more junk. I did a few rerolls to get another LK map, finally getting one with two bonfires, both pretty close to the WP.

Around five runs later i almost fell off the chair. I took a screenshot, saved and immediately did a backup of my savefolder. I started writing a message to sequana, realizing that i am forbidden to do that a few seconds later, thus cancelling the SMS. Well, i think i am no longer going to be at the bottom of the results list:tongue: My hands are still shaking...

I love LK.
krovak: Congrats on your Sur/Ber 😁

No matter how much I try, the better runes don't drop for me.

At least I got this:
Ruby Jewel of Fervor
Required Level: 58
Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
Item Level: 80
Fingerprint: 0x7376aff5
+40% Enhanced Damage
15% Increased Attack Speed
I'd say that jewel more than makes up for it, hope you've got some incredible item that deserves it:grin:

The runes won't drop for me either, but I still have a bit of time left, I might get lucky:tongue:

Now, go stick it in a cracked dagger for super uberness. :evil:
I've just finished and am happy with the results. As well as a rune or two I found a couple of +Skills Charms, some MF Charms and an Amulet that is missing +Skills but is not too bad:

Still got time to go but I don't know how well I'm gonna do rune-wise... my fault for not putting in more time I guess. I did, however, get a SoJ and this, which I posted in the IFT as well but deserves a doublepost:

@DarkChaos: These are probably the best boots i have ever seen. Big congrats.

I was lucky rune-wise today, but very unlucky finding skillers. Out of total 67 GCs only one was a skiller (plain necro P&B) and only one other was worth keeping(well i kept some more for rerolling). Last time i found ~20 GCs two of which were skillers.
I can't do that anymore. Sent my results. After my complaining about no-luck runewise (I know I shouldn't complain in the post with 40/15 jewel :rolleyes: ) I got few lucky rune drops too. (Until then I would have better results from running countess ... in NM :wink3: )

DC: Nice boots
That's all I have time for. Pretty disappointing this time around. Results sent.

I've finished, ran cows with like 10 LK runs thrown in somewhere. Rune drops were terrible, as expected. It wouldn't be my copy of D2 if they weren't.

Thanks for hosting the MMFO jjscud, and thanks for competing to all the contestants.
Results sent.

The 34 hours I spent on actual running was divided between Cows and Izual only at a 1:5 ratio in time spent.

While I didn't expect anything with the recent collectings there was still room for a small surprise :badteeth:

I probably collected half a grail worth of normal/exceptional uniques, 3 facets, 1 highlords, 2 Spirit Keepers, 2/3 Cow Kings set and a good bunch Manalds/Nokozans and similar useless jewelry.

Oh, and this:

Very nice boots DC.

Finished last night, ~35 hours of running various areas for a very crappy result. Will send in the score when I get home from work.

Gratz to the winners :D
Sent in my results even though I've still got 3 and a half hours left to run if I want. Only did about 13-14 hours of running in total (all LK apart from half an hour or so of cows). I could've done more runs, but the complete lack of anything even remotely decent killed my motivation.

I just hope I don't come last:tongue:

Done running. Better score than last rune hunt. I found 10-12 skillers and 5 or 6-7mf sc's. I saw way more gold uniques drop than i expected. All except tarnhelm and a ravenfrost were left on the ground. My best find non-rune is prolly a chilling gc of life, though I dont play sorcs so its not that great to me.

A big congrats to Hrus, he been so close so many time.

@Hrus, trophy blahblahblah, you know the drill. 😁

@all, if you ran Lk and got runes out of the special chests, please head over there and share the details / screenies. I think we're getting close to nailing down the # possibilities of the higher runes and thus the real rarity from the special chests.

Congratulations Hrus, 3rd Sur eh? :)

A most astonishing January month for me, 4 high-runes? I'm almost at DC's level of luck.

Oh, here's The bugger by the way
Congrats to all the winners. (everyone who got a high rune :p ) And Hrus for the big win.

*barfs at the sight of them all*

Should be interesting to see the LK screenshots. Thanks for hosting, jjscud, was fun. :D
Big congrats, Hrus:thumbsup: (damn that was close:tongue:)

Thanks Jjscud for organising this awesome tourney and congrats to the finds everybody!

As for my runes, here are the screenies:

Ber, Lem 1, Lem 2

Not only was the Ber not from the superchest, it was from the stash i like the least! It takes forever to open it, but at least this is a proof that not only superchests deliver nicely:laugh:

Edit: Non-rune drops can be found in these 3 posts of the IFT: 1, 2, 3.
interesting, the first Lem matches an existing recorded drop.
Wow, lots of great finds, runes and some amazing charm and jewel finds as well! That is a lot of high runes so congratulations to everyone!
I need a Lower Kurast runner. 😁

I'm curious, how many runs did everyone do for this mini-MFO?
Did everyone in the top 3 do LK runs? I did Cows and WSK with a few Shenks etc thrown in.

Congratulations to all and thanks to jj for organizing this.
Nice finds! Congrats Hrus! Well-deserved win.

I didn't count my total runs. But I have to think 100 or so. About 3-4 hours of time including cubing, searching through all the gold, IDing charms and jewels.

~30 pgems from the haul after the cubing. I also know I went from 0 gold to her limit of 800,000 (or could be 810-820; can't remeber now) 7 or 8 times picking up the gold to search for the runes.
I have a question. I never did LK runs until this tourny. If you find a good map is it better to run it over and over or is it better to refresh the map each run?

And Congrats to the winners. At least I didn't finish dead last !
Wow that is quite an imporessive haul:shocked:. Congratulations everyone. Not to mention Hrus gets a Sur rune to go with his perfect Ruby Jewel of Fervor.

Anyone else notice the lack of Lo and Ohm from the table:scratch: Matches up with the theory that they aren't dropped by LK Superchests.

@nubikoen and sequana, Did you guys happen to find those in LK Superchests? Because there is also evidence that these runes cannot be dropped as well.

As with most runs, speed rules. Having said that, its always faster with a map you know and even faster if you take a bit of time to find a good map.

I found an Ist from LK Superchests during the last mini-MFO. If upl.silentwhisper ever comes back online you'll be able to see the full screenshot, otherwise this little snippet is as close as I can get unless the SS is stored somewhere I can't remember. (very unlikely)

I could be wrong and it might have been from a normal object but I'm almost certain it was from a superchest.
Is it possible that there is a slght difference between 1.10 and 1.11? I know that Marvel's Ber drop also does not match that other recorded Ber drops and he is also 1.10.
Congrats to Hrus for the win! I believe I read in the '06/'07 thread that one of your goals was to win more tourneys! This is a great start to that.

Anyways, here are my results (not posted in the LK thread yet):

Lum

Lum

Sur

I'm pretty pleased with these results. Oly a tad over 100 runes (I had video card problems, and had to buy a new one today). I did find a Sur last MFO also! We should do these more often!! :rolleyes:
A questions for those who ran the LK superchests:

How do you get through the massive stacks of items quickly to see if there are any runes? It seems often 20+ items including stacks of gold are showing up so much of it can't be read. I found sorting through the items took up precious time, slowing down runs. And how fast is a good run for you, 30 seconds, 1 minute? It really seems getting through a large number of chests must be the key.

CB
You click to get through the items. It's good to have an inventory almost free of charms and minimal gold so that everything you click you pick up and the items get sorted fast.
A big congratz to Hrus, very well deserved :)

No, I found all of my runes in the cow level. I had hoped to be as fortunate as last time, but no Jah for me :rolleyes:

All in all I'm very pleased with the results compared to time spent (~13 hours).

Congrats to the new ber/sur/vex owners (and the rest of the bunch as well.) And huge congrats to Hrus on the perfect jewel and overall win / DC on the very very very very close to perfect boots.

Some more statistics from me. I spent roughly 20 hours in total and was doing LK exclusively. I rerolled the map quite often(each ~10 runs), the first run being always a "full clear". When i liked some map a lot, i kept running it longer(~50-100 runs). Altogether it was 400 runs, some of which were fast(only superchests + a few other objects), but mostly i was tempted to click on everything. That paid off, the Ber rune comes from a shabby stash, 2 or 3 screens far away from the common route between superchests. The complete rune yield looks like this(i also pick up Nef for crafting, then Tal and above):

Ber 1x
Lem 2x
Ko 2x
Lum 1x
Io 4x
Hel 3x
Dol 8x
Shael 10x
Sol 5x
Amn 6x
Thul 13x
Ort 17x
Ral 18x
Tal 27x
Nef 27x

Beside that i cubed roughly 200 pgems and accumulated around 10 million gold(mostly picking up gold to clear the screen for better view, with occasional selling items to Ormus).
@krovak I am surprised you bother clicking those slow opening stashes. I usually skip them because I waste time waiting for the drop. But it seems it was worth it for you :wink3: .
Also I am surprised you rerolled the map a lot. I did it too, but I tried to get a Monarch rack (which I didn't manage). Finally I kept the map which had quite close camp fires, one rack was dropping Sacred Targes and there was a shrine close to other camp fire - that helped with few gem upgrades.

@Corrupted: yes, 3rd Sur. I am still not decided between CoH and Beast, but with the 3rd, I think I will go for Bramble. I allways wanted to build an usamahamancer.

EDIT: Congrats to all. Some findings are really nice.
DC, grogs, Marv: what about running LK next time? :scratch:
Big congrats to all!

(Nice to see that first two places is for the Czech Republic - little country in the middle of Europe...............I know this is not important:wink3: )

It was in LK normal chest not superchest http://img209.imageshack.us/my.php?image=lkchestistmj7.jpg
I found an Ist rune from a superchest some time ago, will post screenie when I get home.

I think you may have something there Hrus:smiley: Between the 3 of us it was well over 100 hours of cow killing for not much to show at all.

I usually try to click some other objects in the meantime while the stash is opening. But there is always something telling you "there is a Ber inside" or "you are going to miss something nice if you skip it"😃. I must admit however, that most other nice rune drops came from the superchests - that was 2x Lem, 2x Ko, a Lum and 2 Io IIRC.

As for the rerolling - i enjoyed exploring the whole area while clicking on hundreds of various objects - i find it much more entertaining than repeating a short sequence like a machine(even though it is maybe a bit more efficient).

And by the way - good luck rolling your bramble. I personally would be scared a bit - the quality of this runeword can vary a lot and i am one of the worst runeword rollers on these forums:tongue:

P.S. Congrats to Atil - he's got the highest cube value of the runes.
Gratz Hrus

I did actually play 40h+ this weekend and only cows ofc... ive been consider LK for a long time but i dont really need ber and those runes below.

Im trying to cube a zod so area would be ideal.
shouldn't you be working Marvel :p
Congrats with all the high rune finds. 👍

My Mal drop fits with the listed LK drops, the Puls were different, I believe. I'll post the screenshots over there later when I'm at the D2 comp.

I didn't run as much as others as I thought it was quite boring, maybe 15 hours altogether. I had a nice map though. The 2 campfires were right next to each other.
@Hrus, stash received and added to the trophey case.

@Everyone, thanks for participating.

Actually, while I'm here I will announce the next target. The River of Flame and Chaos Sanctuary. I'm announcing this ahead of time because these can be tough areas to run so this will give you some time to make sure you have a runner and a strategy, if you want of course. Expect this one sometime in March or first thing in April.

Hope to see everyone in an MFO in Feburary.
Nice finds everyone and congratulations to Hrus.

Here's my Um from a superchest and my Vex from a regular stash.

I'm finding that as I start to find high runes, the temptation for RWM grows stronger. Still, I have enough non-RWM words to make that I can put that decision off for some time.

Maybe I'll make Heart of the Oak with this Vex...any other ideas??
THE MFO?
It's time for a signup thread. NOW! :badteeth:
Yep, I hope it fits atleast some of my holidays, otherwise I won't be able to defend my alvl 85 title :badteeth:
Thanks to jjscud for hosting, congratulations to Hrus for winning and everyone who found something.

I exclusively ran LK. 720 runs, 3 chests = 2160 chests opened. 136 runes found which is roughly one rune every sixteen openings.

My results:
23 El
15 Eld
17 Tir
11 Nef
13 Eth
9 Ith
7 Tal
3 Ral
9 Ort
6 Thul
5 Amn
4 Sol
5 Shael
2 Dol
1 Io
3 Lum
1 Ko
1 Pul. (I picked up the Rune before I remembered the LK Superchest thread. The items match those found with other Pul drops)
1 Ber

All runes from Io upwards match previously reported drop patterns.
Hrus: I'm the same as Marvel. If I ran LK I'm sure I would have come up with some higher runes but I'm after a Jah so cows might be a better choice. Not to mention it was a nice change of pace...

scud: RoF sounds excellent, been wanting to perfect a runner for that area for a while but with the constant baaling for the 99s it's been hard. I'd love to make a bowazon that could efficiently run it but I'm not sure how, especially without RWM. About a full MFO: That could be great, or absolutely terrible. I'm very busy till the 16th (mostly - exams and such) but after that I'd be able to join. Ah well, I don't think I'll do as well as I did last MFO anyways, maybe I'd rather keep my 100% win rate :wink3:

EDIT: And, big thanks to scudz0r for hosting, a top notch job as always. 👍
Congrats Hrus :winner:, nice results there, and congrats to everyone that managed such good rune finds. 👍

@DarkChaos, thanks for the tip, I'll clear my sorc's inventory and see if I can speed up those runs... it would sure be nice to find a few of those runes...

CB
Even if I don't participate I get into the hall of fame. gg hrus 😃
Nikolaa's, not Nikolaas'. Close, but no cigar!
The character was named after Sint, but it's a sorc, so I skipped the last s. So yes, I think Sint is right :wink3: .
D'oh!! :duh: :duh:
