Hey. I have not given you guys any updates for quite some time now. My last reply had to be in DiabloII forum. I really lost motivation and the sorceress is still sitting on level 97, but I have spent some time with my new character, which is HC Barbarian called Brute. I have done some running in Lower Kurast (P7).
On average one should find or cube Ber in 1285 runs and in really long run sessions these odds suppose to level out. I am quite sure, that I got 3 x Ber (2 were cubed from Sur runes) in 3800-3900 runs. In addition I found Lo, Vex and bunch of lower runes like Ists, Mals, Ums etc. When I finished my Lower Kurast runs, the barb was still on level 71 and since then I have spent like another 15 hours to find bases for Enigma and Grief. The base for latter is still missing :). I just could not find 5 soc Phase blade and cubeing attempts have not been successful either. Brute has reached level 87 and I will try to start Chaos Sanctuary runs as soon as I get my base for Grief.

@D30D043 Welcome back!
Wow sub 4k Lk runs for eni and griefs is pretty good.
And yeah getting those phase blades can be annoying. Took me awhile to get mine aswell.
You are going to run cs with a ww barb? Interessting choice. I tried to do that but it didnt work out at all for me.

Currently, Brute is a singer barb, but if I would find Grief, then I actually plan to switch into berserker and go to Chaos Sanctuary for popping seals till level 96. After level 96 I start doing full Chaos runs with Diablo I reckon. Depends on equipment and speed.

I've been running the Pits to try and get an ethereal Archon Plate but no luck so far. I did find an ethereal Sacred Armor though that rolled 4 sockets.

Sacred Armor
Defense: 1212
Durability: 31 of 31
Required Level: 66
Required Strength: 222
Fingerprint: 0x701d31df
Item Level: 85
Version: Expansion 1.10+
Ethereal
4 Sockets (0 used)

So, then I decided that I needed to go find an Andariel's Visage at Meph.

Literally the first run after that decision and I get this:

Andariel's Visage
Demonhead
Defense: 310
Durability: 18 of 20
Required Level: 83
Required Strength: 102
Fingerprint: 0x98ae97ba
Item Level: 87
Version: Expansion 1.10+
15% Chance to cast level 15 Poison Nova when struck
+2 to All Skills
+20% Increased Attack Speed
10% Life stolen per hit
+100% Enhanced Defense
+25 to Strength
+10% to Maximum Poison Resist
Fire Resist -30%
Poison Resist +70%
Level 3 Venom (6/20 Charges)

Guess it's time to make a Fortitude and a Call To Arms

Patriarch Septimus and Azrael the A2 HF Merc, Lvl 96 (pic)
The RF/MF tourney saw great progress for Septimus, with 20.25 hours from 95 top 96 across two sets. His finds are summarized here, with the biggies being finally an Ohm for CtA (that rolled +4 BO) and a Jah, plus another Ohm to give another CtA a try later. I think I may try out CS 2-seal runs with him, to see how it would compare to Baal/Ventar/Lister runs for level 96. I'm thinking it might be competitive for XP, leaving only 97-98 at full Baal runs. But that is way down the road, because . . .

It's time to push Death to 99 at Nihl. He's been sitting since MFO, with a little progress in RF/MF to farm two more Tokens, resulting in another Cham (obviously). Checking out skill points, he will have quite some extra with Concentrate build (max Conc, BO, Sword Mastery, Bash), so I'm wondering what to do with extra points. Natural Resist and Howl with a few extra points seem more than enough, but that will still leave a few extra. I'd welcome some feedback there, planning to use the first token and give Nihl some testing this weekend.

I maxed Howl, Sword Mastery, Concentrate, Bash and BO. The rest of the points I distributed 1 into each of the following: Battle Command, Increased Speed, Natural Resistance, Leap and, if I'm not mistaken, Berserk. I think that should add up to 109 skill points.

You have the Septuple Crown of 99ers at your fingertips. I reckon that there are not many people, who have done it :). Especially in SP. Oo

So level 93 to 94 was P8 Chaos Sanctuary runs. Before starting that, I tried to roll 5 OS in a Crystal Sword but had no luck. I figured, that something would drop in CS but the 2 or 3 that did drop were not cooperating. At this point, I still hadn't done a respec so my attributes were pretty lacking and I was running with around 1500 life. Still at level 93, a death is not a huge setback but it sometimes didn't take too much to get sloppy and die. I was stubborn though and made it to level 94, still without a CTA base. (Well, I do have a 5OS Flail but then I don't have a visual cue if I accidentally switch from HotO)

Once I hit lvl94, I did a respec which bumped my life up to 1900 or so. Then I started running Nightmare Cows to look for some white Crystal Swords. After 5 or 6 runs, I had 3 shiny white swords so I figured it was time to try again. First one of the new batch was a success!!!

Crystal Sword #14 finally gave me 5 sockets and this

20 Vigor
20 Concentration (33 with BO)
1 Redemption
1 Holy Shield (16 with BO; 34% BP)
7 Prereqs

which leaves me with 16 unused points at the moment. My plan is to dump those in some combination to Resist Fire and Resist Lightning for the passive bonus to increase max resistance. There's a lot of Fire in CS so it's pretty attractive to just go with all to fire resistance. Add the +5% from Waterwalk boots and I can currently get to 88% Fire resistance.

Anyone ever try something like this? What is the bigger danger in the end for P8 2-seal and then eventually P1/P7 CS runs?

@Ohomemgrande great stuff. Last time I was running my hdin, I put 10 in resist fire and ran hotspurs for 95 fire res. I don't think light res is a priority at all. The 95 fire res is super nice, but I think I'd just dump those 10 points in holy shield if I had to do it again. After all, you aren't likely to die from fire dmg if not convicted.

There are only 2 likely ways to die as hdin imo.
  1. conviction infector
  2. might/fana doom knights while cursed and/or extra fast/extra strong etc
#1 can be geared around to make it a non-issue, either by running rising sun or by making sure you have like 60+ fire res after conviction (or a little less if you have dwarf star). A lot of people I've talked to think that's overkill, but I don't. Eliminating one of the top 2 ways to die is worth a lot imo.

#2 will increase in likelihood when you start including de seis in your runs at 97 or 98, but CAN happen from any random pack anytime. Can do several things to help with this, but not eliminate the risk completely imo. Such as
  • max block
  • high defense (though defense is of questionable value if fanaticism is present)
  • high hp
  • high DR (such as ber in shako)
  • holy freeze merc (or defiance for point #2)
  • reapers merc (I don't like this one myself)
  • lawbringer merc (super safe but makes vizier terribly annoying, so I don't recommend this either)
  • delirium on merc (I use this on sorc but not on hdin)
  • play well
That's most of what I can think of. Good luck!

Quoted for truth.

As FFS stated deaths often come from player mistakes rather than the game actually killing you. Don't get comfortable. I've played HC a long, long, long, long, long time. Because of that I tend to play very aggressively because I am comfortable doing so. I've played that way for years. Every once in a while that comfort kills me. I don't mind though because I enjoy 1-80 more than I do 81-97 (highest I've attained that I can remember). Good luck dude!

Will echo @Luhkoh and @ffs that the biggest issue is convicted Infector. Just take the quarter second to ensure it's not there, and the overstack isn't needed. As others noted, the max FR isn't helpful when the real threat is -FR from conviction. I didn't find fanaticism much trouble up to 97, and I generally dropped to p1 for de Seis to avoid issues, but again, a quarter second pause to let his pack walk toward the pally will usually be more than enough at p8 to safely telebomb de Seis. My main check was no more than 30 minutes without at least a short break. Good luck!

Alright, first 15M complete with Death at Nihl. Barb is interesting, and at least for me, counter-instinctual down there with Vipers. Something like this is of course an auto-bail:
Nihl (Auto Bail).jpg
But they only spawn on three+ sides of the platform rarely, and as long as I don't mis-teleport, he can just crank away as long as the poison spears haven't gone past him, with careful attention to whether Nihl runs back. Keeping an eye on the bulb, with the life pool he has plenty of time to S&E or teleport to reposition and/or reassess. Once I pulled the trigger on the Prismatic Everlasting amulet over Highlords, that provides an extra couple split seconds. The extra deadly strike was nice (for 86% +30% deadly from mastery for ~100% double damage chance, with 50% CB), and I was somewhat surprised that Nihl dropped noticeably quicker (or maybe I was fooling myself). I thought that might be net-safer, as the faster Nihl drops the quicker the run ends. But mistakes will be made without the little extra cushion.

No extended stash has finally shown a real limitation, as the life pool is lower than ideal (would swap in some 20 vita SCs for dual mod lower life ones) and I had muled off two Sharp GCs that I'd definitely swap for the AR charms that were better for Baal but not needed with Conc/Fanaticism AR boost. Oh well, not critical, but it would definitely have been nice.

There were definitely some NDEs along the way:
Nihl (Viper NDE).jpg
Closest call by far, no others from Vipers below 900.
Nihl (non viper NDE).jpg
Non-viper NDE here: Might and lots of witches where confuse didn't trigger, and I cut it close to take down Nihl rather than reposition. Lesson learned.
But no red letters in the end. Even with the amulet choice, he has 50% deadly strike/30% critical from mastery + 50% CB, with Gores and Guillame's, fire resist is ~60% with LoH so the stray CE isn't an issue. Hoping for a sharp GC upgrade along the way, and we can also swap out Gheeds if we get two of them or some vita charms. He also picked up two TC87s, with Executioner's and Nat's Claw.

I hope to continue improving my targeting of Nihl to speed runs up, and for now I'm going with direct teleport (no pause)-Howl-reteleport if needed. I also adjust a little if Vipers are spotted, and sometimes take an extra teleport if I see them on a particular side of the platform. It's pretty engaging (not as autopilot as Amazon, Sorc or Assassin were, and also more attention needed than the Necro before I rolled his map without many mobs around platform). I'll plan to update at the quarter, half and three-quarter way marks. Keep the updates coming, everyone!

Really.... that life poll is 1k lower than my barb's. I didn't think I had such good charms haha but if it's the result of having extended stash, then I have to give it to you and to everyone who has completed this challenge withouth muling.

Good progress and very nice to see you pick Death up again :)

After my last update on barb I kind of revived my thirst for Fragile´s progress and I started Chaos Sanctuary runs again. Fragile turned level 98 two days ago. In the middle of level 97 (about 3,040) I rolled a decent amulet (20 fcr / 2 to Cold skills), which encouraged me to change Fragile to 105 FCR sorceress. There was a slight improvement in speed after that and these runs became really enjoyable. With new gear the exp/per hour was constantly 4-4,1 M/h, which was not that bad, because she was still a Blizzard/ Fire Ball sorceress (Blizzard damage output was only 3,2-3,5 k). I think 4.7-5.2 M/h is easily doable with pure Blizzard build. Anyways ... that was the equipment for the most part of level 97:

Heart of the Oak: @35
Magefist
Arach 115 ed
Bul-Kathos Wedding ring
Rare ring: 10 Fcr, @11, 6 str, 4 mana
Chains of Honor
Harlequin Crest Shako (Ber)
Crafted amulet: 20 fcr, 2 cold skills, regen mana 5%, 12 mana, lightning res 12%
Stormshield (Eld)
Hotspurs

I have been also testing Nihlathak with Blizzard / Fire Ball, pure Blizzard and currently I am trying pure Meteor sorceress. Yep, I farmed two tokens and I still have one reset :). I kind of realised that there is no point for dual-skill sorceress. Damage output tends to be too low and that decreases the speed of the runs. With current gear I run 2M/h, which could be much better :). My current plan is to reach 3,320 M before new year and then take a break before the last segment.

By the way ... is it me or does it seem that Nihlathak immunities are not balanced? Maybe it is just some sort of anomaly (I have only done 300-400 runs), but it seems that Nihlathak is mostly immune to cold? I´d say that Nihlathak is immune to cold 6-9 times out of 20, immune to fire 5-7 out of 20, immune to light 4-6 out of 20. Has anyone compiled some statistics over that matter?
