Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

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

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 22th GMT is very firm so you should start no later than Saturday the 20th

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.

[b3- This is a Specialized rune hunt. We're exploring the RoF chests. I'll also allow runes found by monster kills on the peninsula where the chests are. Any player setting may be used.[/b

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 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- [bResults MUST be sent by midnight Monday the 22th GMT[/b.

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. Bonuses will be given to the high runes that we're really hoping the RoF chests can drop (Ber +5, Jah/Cham +10)

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
Ort 9
Thul 10
Amn 11
Sol 12

Ist 24
Gul 25
Vex 26
Ohm 27
Lo 28
Sur 29
Ber 35
Jah 41
Cham 42
Zod 33

10. As always this is just for fun, but if you need more motivation, the RoF chests will most likely be a great resource to the SPF, we just need to figure out what p settings drops the good stuff. Hopefully before D3 comes out.

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

Good luck to everyone.

I don't expect to find anything after the past month and a half.... but lets see what RoF is hiding! (Besides Sur :p)

Your rune scoring list is screwed up. Also, corr is a nubb!

Heh, my RoF map is exactly the same as the one Grisu gives in the thread you linked to. I suppose I'd be a fool to not try a few hundred runs.

Just so everyone knows, this is pretty much THE map configuration. RoF isn't like LK, there isn't alot of map optimization, there's just the setup where the chest area is 3-4 teleports from the way point. Obviously the rest of RoF changes but this is the standard layout for the chest area.

@jjscud: why are they runes scores different for the top few? I think in previous tourneys, the score went from El =1 to Zod = 33.

Yeah, there's a bonus for finding these runes. Obviously it will be nice for whomever finds them but it may be very advantageous to SP players in general, that's why there's a bonus.

I've been doing /p3 with my meteorb. I might do some runs with my javazon, which would be on /p5 or /p7.

A question just to be sure: I don't need to set /p3 every run, right? As long as I don't close the program, then it will stay /p3 for that character?

I'll be running with an ES/Nova/FO sorc(hardly able to kill anything, but is quite sturdy). I'm gonna try /p3(or maybe /p5) so the drops fit on the screen without sorting.

LT ftw. I'm not afraid of his life 😁.

Hmm after such talking I bet I'll die......

Just entering my run settings. I like doing combined LK/RoF runs which means p3 or p8 so I'll take advantage of this to test p5 some.

I will go with my 92 smiter wit enigma on p8 but I have ery few time for it so I am not expected some interesting score
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

Okay, I can start running now, but I'll stop Sunday 23.59 :) Also, I'll have to give you guys some advantage, because I'll have (ok, don't have to, but I want to) go get wasted tomorrow. GL and let all your drops be Red (except jjscud and other CRM users)

👋
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I will start today at 16:00 and end on Sunday around midnight. I plan to run quite a bit, but with my poor luck for runes I don't expect anything too impressive.
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I just strated today at 12:00 and just I have Shael+Ort but hard for me even with nice map beacuse near cheasts I always have bosspack
Maybe I will try it with hammerdin I will see
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I started today at 17:00 (USA, Central time). So far, El, El, Eth, Eth, Amn. About 50 runs so far... I'm going to have to throw in some visits to Meph or AT to break up the monotony! Running a single target over and over is making my eyes bleed...heheh
About 50% of the time I end up with large mobs on top of the chests as well.
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

2 hours of runs, and 15 runes so far, highest being.....Hel. :coffee:
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

600 runs and highest rune... Lum. :rant:
I've started today at 10:30 am and already have a nice rune (/p5, Highland Blade + Stygian Pike - who knows which one I am talking about?:))
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I started yesterday at 10am. Already got over 500 runs done and it doesn't look good. I have the perfect map, but the chest area has almost always at least two bosspacks, sometimes four. I try to look the bright side, which is ~250k exp per run :p

Thus far I have found more elite S/U's than even semi-high runes, and the chests are leading the monsters only slightly in the runedrops.

Well, I still have another 30 hours to go, good luck all!

600 runs and highest rune... Lum. :rant:

not every 600 superchest runs you will find Ber ::D
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I'm done already and the results were not too hot :(

Still, I probably got about 600 runs or so while battling a sinus infection. Haul included 27 jewels including a perfect ruby jewel (30%), 57 runes and 59 charms including a Fungal of Balance and a Spiritual.

I popped Arcana's Head, Sigon's Wrap and Silkweave boots from the various "other" stashes on the peninsula.

I probably kept my runs down to 15-18 seconds, killed almost nothing and died a few times to carelessness.

Good luck to everyone else and hope you have more luck than I did this week.
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I'm pulling out. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to do any runs all weekend and starting now to get maybe 2-3 hours after work seems pointless.

Good luck to everyone else who ran, hopefully we'll see some new runes in the tables.

Joosh 👍

Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I did not officially sign up as I knew I would not have much time. Last night I did about 100 P5 runs and only found a shael with my novaorb sorc. I'm very curious to see what the results are for this and if anyone actually got the Jah/Cham.
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

Alright, I'm done. I don't know the exact number, but somewhere in the 250-300 run range. Results being sent to jjscud shortly.
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

results sent
nothing special I did only 300 runs 200 on p8 and 100 on p5
few time for it :(
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

Results sent.

I did 800 /p8 runs. I hoped I can manage more, but running with smiter wasn't the fastest possible, and also I mostly wanted to kill those bosspacks there, so that was also delay. My smiter reached almost 95 (I finished him with baal runs then which revealed as very good idea->IFT).

But result poor as usual. I'm afraid I never break my bad luck in runes hunting.

Edit:
Probably my best drop:

Arcing Small Charm of Vita

If you could PM me, my email is having issues

Grisu - if you get a chance, could you PM me too, I can see that your email is there but I can' read it.
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I thought we had a little more time to run. I was going to send tonight, I just PMed my score with readouts.

I didn't get much of a chance to run, maybe 150 runs total over a few hours mixed between p5 and p8.

I struggled early as I wanted to level some, after 20 runs and nearly an hour, I gave that up, put Naj's Puzzler on switch and just tele'd. Delirium on merc is great especially when bosspacks are on the chests everytime (well 95%).

Thanks jjscud for hosting, next time I'll be much better prepared.
@jjscud: Results sent.

I am pretty pleased with the result! Don't know exactly how many runs I did, but I ran for 26 hours, all at /p5, with ~25 sec. average run time. That makes ~3750 runs, let's say 3500 with some time spent muling/cubing. The funny part is, that I have not improved my score in the last ~15 hours, finding all my top 3 runes the first day.

I will be posting the non-qualifiers in the IFT shortly and as soon as this Mini-MFO is officially closed I will post my rune screenshots and patterns in the appropriate thread.

Thanks jjscud for organising this tourney, I hope it will contribute heavily to the RoF special chest pattern database.

I am kind of sick of RoF for now, my poor sorc almost died a few times - that would be VERY painful for me, because she is carrying all the best charms I have. Maybe in the distant future I will make a dedicated character for running RoF, which will have more life and PDR.

I can't wait to see the results, hopefully there will be some HRs inaccessible in LK!👍
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I submitted my results. They are what you can expect for a 500-run effort. I'm eager to see the results though!
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

Submitted my results, too. 400 runs on /p3 and 150 on /p5.

@Krovak: That's impressive! I'm eager to see your results!

Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I had three lousy tals and had to work. so i didnt have time to send results. Nice drops krovak.
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

Wow, I'm shocked I placed as high as I did! I thought with my low run total, I would be in the bottom third. Congrats Krovak on the runes, I would hope with ~3500 runs, you would find some nice ones!

I'm pretty convinced that RoF chests are not as profitable as LK chests, but I'm sure the sampling is still hugely in favor of LK.
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

My apologies for reporting so late! I got stuck at work today in meetings... jjscud, my results have been emailed to you. They are somewhat less than spectacular though!!

edit: jjscud, I sent a second email correcting the first. In my first email I accidentally sent you my week-long RoF results that I had been tracking. The second email contains the correct (and much smaller) list of runes from the tourney time frame!
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

Sorry jjscud - must have missed your post in which you asked me to send my results again via PM...but it seems like you could eventually read the mail :)

Grats Krovak on the nice runes! They're quite the useful ones, these Lo Runes :rolleyes:

Oh well, back to running RoF...
It's nice to be first, but honestly I've hoped that someone finds a Jah - that would have put RoF in the same league as LK(at least in my eyes). I think I will get back to RoF in a while, I am considering doing a few thousand /p1 runs(with killing bosses). What do we know - it's possible(although not very likely) that the real high runes drop only on /p1 setting.

I have added my runes in the RoF special chest thread, you can see my post here.

I will now have to think about some kind of a trophey - and rush a character to act5 to personalize:p

Thanks again jjscud for hosting and congratulations to all participants on their finds:thumbup:

Edit:

@grisu: Of course I am happy about the Lo runes, but I will definitely keep them in a stash for now. I think they are somewhat too high to use them on HC and I already have a fortitude on SC. Taking into account the runes I already have, I am now at ~Ber+Lo+Ohm, that's already 46% of an Enigma:p
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

congrats to krovak for his nice found 2*Lo gg :)

thanks to jjscud for hosting tournament 👍
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

Congrats to Krovak on the win and the nice Lo runes!

I'll take one as I still need a fort :)

Good luck to everyone in their future runs.
Re: Mini-MFO XIV (The Fourth Rune Hunt, RoF)

I'm curious as to what folks were running with and times. That peninsula can get kind of crowded. Looking at the number of runs that people were getting in, it seemed pretty low on average.

I ran with a lvl 79 ES sorc and I can average in the 15-20 second range/run.

For RoF to be a useful rune farm (or compete with LK), I think we need to see something from Jah/Cham, or get a good rune distribution on a specific players setting, and you need to get runs down to the 15 second range.

I think Krovak stole one of my Lo's ;)

Yes and no. Unlike LK, in RoF it is actually useful to kill bosspacks and champs because they can drop every item in the game so a slightly higher time is acceptable. Though a Jah or Cham drop would be nice. :scratchchin:

I'm working on that, just give me few more days.
