The Zod God

The Zod God, sun of Anu, is a legend in DiabloII Lord of Destruction. Nobody is feared more by the seven Great Evils and it is heard that flayers run away when they see the Zod God walking the earth.

The Zod God believes only the best equipment enhanced with the highest quality of runes is good enough to represent the power he wields. Everything that cannot match the highest quality of equipment and cannot be enhanced with Zod is useless in the Zod God’s eyes.
Now you may wonder. Who is this legendary Zod God?

The Zod God can be you!

The player who is ranked highest in the Zod God Grail at the SPF Diablo2 forums will be known as the Zod God and can act accordingly. Since there can only be one Zod God, there will be no Zod God in case of a tie.

What is the Zod God Grail?
The Zod God only equips himself with items of the highest quality, socketed with Zod runes. The Zod God grail consists of all ethereal unique items that can be socketed, upgraded to elite and in perfect shape.

For example an Ethereal “Zod” 100%ED 20PDR 16 MDR Iron Pelt Wirefleece with 481 base defense (962 defense after the 100% defense bonus)
Other examples are an Ethereal “Zod” 300ed Ribcracker Stalagmite or a simple Ethereal “Zod” Hellslayer Decapitator.

Boots, ranged weapons, gloves, jewelry and charms are not in the Zod God’s interest since they cannot be socketed with Zod (or even be ethereal). Items with multiple open sockets only have to be socketed with one Zod.

Note that some items might not be perfect, but can be perfect after upgrading. For Example The Centurion Hard leather armor with only 51 (51-54) defense, might have 504 (399-504) defense after upgrading to elite.

How many items do exist in the Zod God Grail?
The Zod God Grail consists out of 252 items. A flavie report of those items can be made by copy pasting the following code in a txt file and use that file to run your flavie report:

How can I participate in the Zod God Grail?
Since the Zod God is a God, he doesn’t need help from others. You are allowed to use traded items to farm, but you are only allowed to use selffound grailers and selffound/cubed zod runes to socket. It is advisable to use version 1.13+, but any version after 1.10 is allowed.
Obviously you must play by SPF rules. Please update the complete Zod God update tables each time you update your new Zod God Grailers. You also have to add a readout of your new grailers at each update and it is appreciated if you could share your experience with your new Zod God item by telling a little story about it.

Rulechange 1: You now only have to put one Zod in grailers with multiple sockets. My apolagies to everyone who putted multiple Zod's in an item prior to this rulechange.
Rulechange 2: It is now required to add a readout of your new grailers at each update

And offcourse the Status tables. No Zod God so far since all participants are tied at 0. I do have 3 candidate items, but sadly lack in Zod Runes. I hope soon all of you will join this elusive tournament to be the Zod God.

Love it. I don't plan to ever have anything, but if I do, I'll sign right up ;)
hilarious that this is actually a thing, now, and all started because of that haxxorz's thread.
You should have joined some of the MP games pyro, cdm, and I have been playing in. LOADS of Zods dropping in those games... Too bad they don't much more. I'd join up, but you know, would hate to win it in a day!

GL to all those who participate in this Godly tournament! :balloons: for all!

I've always wondered what to do if I ever find a Zod. Now I know what I have to do with all 252 of them.
This is hilarious. I have never had a zod ever, in who knows how many years of playing both B.net and SP on and off. That is all I have to say on the matter.
Is it allowed to upgrade two chams, if i get lucky at travincal? :evil2:
Lol guys, I can't believe you actually started it! XD

Do I win?

I mean, this is like, indestructible even without a zod rune. That's like the God of Zod!
Show it to Larzuk and then put a zod in it. You will win for sure that way! :jig:
No he wouldn't as that shadowkiller isn't perfect. (Now that would be a shame if you'd zod it and then realize it doesn't count)
nice shadowkiller, but it will surely need a Zod in order to be of interest for a true Zod God, and like Cyrax mentioned, it also misses the 15 MAEK stat.
Cyrax, I just checked the screenie you showed from your flavie and calculated you are able to cube up to 3 ZOD's! (would need 4 Ohm and all runes above it) Will the spf soon have a Zod God?
Looking forward to it :nod:
Long term you say? Watch me win this pretty soon.

Why have bows been excluded? How is putting a Zod in a bow any more useless than putting one in a Shadow Killer?
I assume it's because bows can't be eth. And that's kinda one of the three main demands for the items. I do see the controversy in including always eth/indestructible items though.
Uh, question, has anyone ever even completed the perfect etherial grail, let along finding 200+ zods to go with them?
I doubt, I don't think finding 200+ Zods is much bigger task than eth perfect grail.

Edit:
Btw, I play this game A LOT and 99% of that time I play in areas that can drop Zod and I only got it once, exactly a year ago, give or take few days.
I don't think anyone found more than...I don't know, 3 zods in their d2 carreer? Better start cubing those Els.
This tourney is absolutely lollercakes :) Looking forward to seeing the first leaderboards!
So feel free to use it usefully and become the Zod God 👋

I found a Cham on my trav days, before "the restart before" my current restart. I was feeling a little crazy for wanting an items + runewords grail... Glad to now my goal wasn't that crazy. Can I join later? I'm playing 1.09 right now and, for some reason, I think this tournament will take some time...

Also, can my grandson join? :crazyeyes:
Actually I made BoTD couple of months ago, but I always wanted to Zod the eth HoZ, Lash, Tomby,

btw does the Atma bugging count or the Zod has stay in the item?
All 3 items are near impossible to find as a perfect ethereal elite version, maybe stormlash is the easiest one haha. Good luck anyway :). After unsocketing the Zod, the item offcourse becomes useless for the Zod God and no longer counts towards the Zod God Grail.

edit:
killing Baal with 500 MF at p3

odds for eth perf HoZ: 4,10*10^-7>perfect upgrade to zakarum shield: 1,64073*10^-8
odds for eth perf stormlash: 2,3264*10^-8

So finding the perfect eth stormlash will be a bit more easy at Baal, about 45.000.000 vs 61.000.000 Baal runs. However if you farm mephisto you will be more likely to find the HoZ.

Only baal will allready give you about 80 Zod Runes during this time in version 1.10

Ah and about the perfect eth Tombreaver, my calculator doesnt have enough megabytes of memory to calculate the odds.
*Gasps* There is no.... Zod!
no...winning?
Too bad LE wasted his big hurty stick by sticking those pesky 40/15s in it .. :p

Bonus points for anyone with zodded ethereal unique mithril point though ;]
Just to clarify before I waste my zod rune. . .

If an item has no variable stats, but is upgraded to elite (say, headstriker or a similar weapon) and eth and has a zod in it, this counts, right?

oh my zod i'm so excited.
I would say save it. Most omg items have variable status - like an perfect eth ribby. I know you have to start somewhere, but I would start with something I will really use for a while... Starting with a non-variable... I dunno... If I was going to join, I would save the first zod post EBotD for something big... Like a perfect eth tomb reaver :crazyeyes:
Yeah, like I'm not more likely to find 80 zods before a perfect eth tomby :p

I'm totally going for it! You just wait! I need to be the zod god. I might even ask for my username to be changed. omz.

I have to be committed. I even told FoE off saying I would beat him to it.
I'm newish here, but since this seems like it's a long term tourney I've decided to throw my hat in the ring, hopefully committing to the forum long term!

Frick double post. Sorry guys! First time using code blocks. Anyways, I figure I have as good a shot as anyone here due to the nature of the tournament.

Question though. If everyone is at zero and someone gets one piece, is that person now the zod god until someone gets two? Or does it take all pieces to be considered the zod god? What happens if there's a tie between two people? Are certain pieces valued over others?
^these are actually covered in the first post. There can be no tie. It's whoever has the most. In the case of a tie, there will be no zod god. I don't think any items are worth more than any other.
Your can make it in something like an eth headstriker which has no variable stats. Only problem is that it would be pretty much a waste. But hey it's your zod.

The problem with eth tomby, ribcracker, Death cleaver, stormlash, etc. are that they have so many variable stats that it is impossible to get a perfect one. Of course they are better candidates for a zod rune, but you won't be the zod god.

Perhaps your best options are eth Hellslayer or Meschermitts reaver. They have no variable stats, and in eth form their damage can rival BoTD. Of course they have no ias so they'll still be useless, but axes look kewl. Bonehew and windhammer are more interesting, but they have 1 or 2 variable stats.
If this happens i may feel obligated to use my zod :devil:
please, do not let him be the zod god. I would do it my self - you know, if I had a zod and everything.
I wish I had a hellslayer.

i'll be nice and wait until after the MFO. Give everyone else the chance to find a zod/eth base for it :p

Maybe I'll find that hellslayer!

If I find another cham. . . :)
Imagine this, you zod something, you ask to change nick, then some guy finds TWO zods and bases and (s)he's the new Zod God. Then what? :p
Then I leave and never return and become a legend akin to TUB.
Do you want to be a zod god, don't you? You need 252 zods then. You aren't trying to be a "zod champion" or something lame like that. You are trying to be a Zod God. What's a lame stick compared to that?:coffee:
Zod god is the person with the most different zodded perfect ethereal uniques.
What happens if 2 people have all of them perfect? (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - self found makes it even funnier)

Anyway, I just want to be in the lead. Still totally a zod god.

Can we please make it so Wirt's leg counts, too? :p

I'd propose that the Zod God would be the player with the most points.

How would the points work?

Item that has no variables
-Min Points

Item with only one variable
-Min Points - lowest roll possible
-Max Points - highest roll possible

Item with several variables (including base defense for those that doesn't have ED)
1st variable
-Min Points - lowest roll possible
-Max Points - highest roll possible
+2nd variable
-Min Points - lowest roll possible
-Max Points - highest roll possible
+3rd variable
-Min Points - lowest roll possible
-Max Points - highest roll possible
...

Middle rolls would have proportional points (rounded to closest integer).

(or some other more complicated system using odds for perfect roll in every variable)


This way somebody could actually enter the contest with their nice (and useful) non perfect items.
And how can, for example, a Warlord's Trust or a Razorswitch (both "just" need to drop ethereal and someone be crazy enough to spend a Zod on them) enter the tournament and a 299ED Ribcracker can't? Or a very nice Tomb Reaver? Or a perfect eth Tomb Reaver (it would be one of the most valuable item evaaah?) have the same weight as an eth razorswitch?

This way the tournament would be open to every SPFer and not just the ones whiling to go crazy for the title :p

The Zod God would be the one with most points after... hmm... six months of no updates? Or the contest would be open for eternity :D
I must admit I like the current version a lot more - in my eyes it isn't a tourney for everybody and that makes it even cooler :p

Besides - there's nothing god like over non-perfect items.
^Agreed.

The self-found part makes this difficult enough :p
Heresy! The Zod God has no use for non-perfect items. Those who socket their zods into non perfect ethereal Death cleavers or Tomb reavers are weaklings who do not deserve the Zod God's respect.
At least give more points to perfect stuff than to default stuff :p
I like the simplicity - and title whoring by zodding a useless eth unique :p
^Exactly!

My eth death cleaver is 8ED short of perfect (there is only one other variable, I think)
Heresy!

The Zod god has no use for imperfection like this:
Code:
Rune Master
Ettin Axe
One-Hand Damage: 180 to 364
Durability: 13 of 13
Required Dexterity: 35
Required Strength: 135

Item Level: 85
Fingerprint: 0x4ced97a1
+268% Enhanced Damage
+5% to Maximum Cold Resist
Cannot Be Frozen
Ethereal (Cannot be Repaired), Socketed (5: 0 used)

Only the perfect will do!
Code:
This, assuming it was ethereal would be worthy:
Rune Master
Ettin Axe
One-Hand Damage: 122 to 244
Durability: 17 of 24
Required Dexterity: 45
Required Strength: 145
Required Level: 72

Item Level: 85
Fingerprint: 0x7d71bc2f
+270% Enhanced Damage
+5% to Maximum Cold Resist
Cannot Be Frozen
Socketed (5: 0 used)

Now I shall bow a score of fortnights in order to seek mercy from the Zod God for placing such vile and filthy imperfection into his thread.
:worship:
Yes, nothing Godlike in this item :p



I just feel that a Zod God title should be bestowed to someone with something like this and not to someone who just happens to have found an eth unique that happens to have zero variables. It's not my tournament ofc ;)
That;s not even a little zoddy goddy! :p
Bad boy! Non-perfect roll on +Dmg to undead, +attack rating to undead, resistances, MF, Life per kill...

Jokes aside. That's awesome. 360% ED means you must have had perf 280 ed and then 2 perf 40/15s. Not zod god material but still really great.

Oh my god. i knew someone stupid enough to put a zod in an eth occy on bnet years ago.

nice one

all hail the Zod God - lets see how long you will stay zod god
Somewhere a BOTD died. Now someone has to gather 2 zods to beat you. Gonna give mine to my children, when he/she will be (born) old enough.
I 👍 the vid. (I almost commented "First", but that would be too lame even for my standards...)

Now I believe this tourney will kick in... I think you don't know what you started, Ph! :fortune:

Yes, I think some of the 99ers who are bound to find zods, such as Cyrax, are going to destroy me. Still, I hope this helps convince many players to waste theirs. I mean, botd is for chumps anyway.

The tournament has been up for a whole month! Someone had to do it. Plus, I promised FoE
I bow for you.

Go Cyrax. You have no choice.
FoE raises an interesting point in the ITF.
Because I play in HC, if I die and lose the item do I lose my point towards the ZG Grail?
If I don't lose the point, then I may make a very long term goal involving a char named Zod God.
lawlz! How could I have missed the thread for so long!

Great writeup! Love the idea! Want to join! But I don't play enough anymore to be competitive I guess...

and hooray to pharphis for kick starting this! Go go go!

Put a zod in it and then we'll see

?please don't
i think a twitchthroe zodded perfect would be cool , at least it is a mildly useful item
I think the problem with normal and exceptional armors is that you don't know if the item will be perfect after the upgrade. So essentially, you have to keep one perfect eth armor for the perfect grail and up all others and hope, that one will have perfect defense as an elite item...

btw, I have an upped eth Twitchthroe somewhere...
^This.
I predict no zods will be going into any non-elite uniques for this reason.
On the other hand, nothing stops people from upgrading perfect armor with imperfect base defense (and no ED ofc) to gamble a perfect defense upgraded one.
True. I guess there should be quite a few of those. Most armors have variables of some kind, though. I don't think any of mine were eth perfect, but I haven't been in HC very long.
The odds for non perfect base defense in items with no ED is way higher than odds for perfect defense in items with no ED.

Perfect stats on the rest factors on both when they drop.
Odds with new roll after upgrading should be better than waiting for new drop (on account of ethereal chances and the rest of stats being perfect already).
Finally at regret mode: should have made BOTD for my 2-handed charger/avenger named Pindleskin :(
Yeah, you should have :p

Game fun > blasphemous title
But don't be sad, you can always find another ;)
I thought I would have by now! I've done 1146 AT runs this MFO so far, and that's 1144 since the zod drop! :p About 800 since the Lo drop and no other HRs since then.

where's this tourney host with my title? :p

I also asked a question earlier, but I'll restate it;

If I die with my grailer does that mean I go back to 0 grailers collected? :/
Wow congratulations Pharphis! You are the Zod God!! Do not forget you are now allowed to act like a Zod God aswell :), whatever that means.
Don't feel sorry about wasting your Zod. You are the Zod God, and even if you lose the title, you will always be remembered as the first player to be crazy enough to waste a Zod for this tournament.

I currently dont have much time for d2, neither these forums, but I will try to find time to try to arrange you getting this title, even if I have to make a donation to make you incgamers pal.

edit: oops you are already pal :)
edit2: sent Elly a very convincing PM to make you the Zod God, now its a matter of waiting :)

About your questions. I dont know, I guess its the same with unsocketing the Zod. I can imagine that if grailers stilll count after losing them, more people might be interested in wasting their Zod's for this tournament. But all other grail tournaments have the requirement to own all the grailers, so I cant decide.
Anyone else having an opinion about this?
Please someone dethrone him to make him feel even worse :D
Just keep it in your stash, problem solved. It's not like an ethereal headstriker is good for anything anyway.

If you die with that weapon, then you're apparently not the Zod God, because the Zod God is indestructible!
I was expecting and waiting for this lol.

And thanks, EasyG! I wonder if I'll get a pm being notified or something.

I did want to try out the stupid thing, but maybe i'll just use the next one, when I find another cham, and a good base.
On behalf of the under-appreciated indestructible items society, I hereby petition the Zod God to consider any indestructible item with perfect stats. After all, if it got indestructible without a zod rune, then it's surely zodlike!

Now you are just trying to make the pharphis feel bad by de-throning him, haha.
I found a Zod running Pindle with Ravenfrost, my blizz sorc. The Zod dropped from one of the minions on /players 1. I was incredibly surprised.

I don't have any perfect ethereal items saved up, so I'm thinking of making an ebotd ghost spear once I get a Vex. So I'm no Zod God.
Congratulations Pharphis, you got something unique in the incgamers history:
Grats on the Zod God pharphis!

I'll never compete with you guys. If I ever find a Zod or a second Cham it'll be eBotD spear, no discussion.
All hail to the Zod God! Enjoy your title while it lasts, pharphis :evil:

Just did some math what damage my perfect eth Spineripper would do upped and Zodded: 130-275. :-/ OK, it has ITD, PMH and 8%LL, so I could make a Daggerzon with it...thinking about it...maybe that's exactly what I would do!

On the other hand...that's only slightly more damage than Ghostflame does, which has ITD, too...eth perfect Fleshripper! now that would be something!
Oh wow! Sweet :)

Thanks to EasyG especially for turning this into the biggest waste of a tournament in history :p
Okay, so now someone has to take my position, and every other day we need to switch it around to make Elly change names more often.
you are zod god now pharphis!

my first HC zod will make ebotd, the next 2 will be getting that title!
Wow. A Custom Title. That is, by far, the most amazing prize ever. If I had only known that this was the prize at stake, I'd have gone all out to get this and Eni/Infinity be damned.

I can only hope that I ever have the chance to compete for such a wonderful reward.

Huge, HUGE Gratz.
Fools you have endangered us all with your evil blasphemy! Taking our Lords name in vain is no laughing matter! Zod you should all know, is the ancient Kurast word for God. If You wish to please Zod and atone Thy sins visit his temple in Kurast. His Ceremonial Master Ormus will take any number of offerings in the form of Zod runes. Do this and you shall walk in peace, Zod will be pleased with you and His powers shall come to Thy aid! Continue your wicked ways, praising false idols and surely you shall feel the full force of His wrath!
One too many beers there? :guiness:👋
lol @ Korlic.

If this wasn't a grail-type tournament I would have recommended that the zod god can only be in HC, since he can never die. I was also thinking it might be a good idea to have a SC and a HC zod god, but maybe that's just me trying to protect my title :p
I read the first page, then the last page, and I just assumed that pharphis is a meth addict who hasn't slept in a month, and was very lucky also, because I thought, for a few minutes, that he had a full set of perfect eth zod gear. :)

Whew. I'm glad to read that no one is that.....unique. :)

Anyway, congrats pharphis! I never found any rune above Cham myself...
well there aren't that many runes above cham - are there?
Ahh it is but hopeless. But I shall give you all just one small story of Zods powers. After that surely you will change your wicked ways!
If you want proof of Zods powers, the best example is Wirt. If you have any Warriors, Sorcerers or Rogues in your family you might have heard of him. Those where his best customers, and all were they satisfied with their dealings with the young fellow. He was described as a kind young lad who always served his customers with best prices and full refunds. His best selling products was the sacred Jewelry of the Zodiac quality. As a token of good will Ormus asked the boy for a offering of one his sacred Zodiac rings or amulets, but the boy declined. Evil and wicked forces had overcome the boy and suddenly greed was what motivated him, even more than pleasing Zod! Zod was angered beyond what any mortal had seen before! In 30 days the only weather was thunder and rain. Finally it got to the point where Ormus asked Zod what he could do to calm His anger. The answer was clear but frightning; He now wanted a HUMAN sacrifice, the young boys blood should be spilled upon His alter in His temple in Kurast!!! It should serve as a sign to all that not pleasing their Zod, would not go unpunished!!!
Urban legend has it Wirts leg can still be found in old Tristham where Wirt resided. According to the myth Wirt was in the middle of a bargain, when Ormus henchmen tried to drag him away. At the prospect of loosing out on a deal, the now delerious and wicked boy stuck his peg leg in a small bush, in a desperate attempt to cling to his trading ground. The result was Ormus men pulled his body so hard they dismembered the poor flellow from his own leg. Thus the poor boy Wirt is no more. Greed meant his downfall at the alter of Zod.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Excellent work, Ormus! (My favorite NPC)
Congrats on the title, ZG!
Very nice pharzod!

you put Grisu's start date as yours :p
Seeing the table gives me "feels good, bro" feelings, at least.
lol let the zod wars begin!
Just want to inform that I'm going for a Low Cost Tournament.

The El Demigod!

Or for the friends just El Demigod. You can socket whatever you want with El runes. Whoever has more socketed items with El runes, loses... because it's just stupid! Come one! Why do want this bonuses?

[SIZE=-1]El[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]+50 To Attack Rating, +1 Light Radius[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]+15 Defense, +1 To Light Radius[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]11[/SIZE]


The good thing is that anybody can play :]
I'm going to win that one. I'll go back to 1.12 and collect els as fast as I can from countess, then socket all of my items with as many els as I can. does the number of els count, or just the total number of socketed items? :p
Number of Els of course! :D
woohoo!

I'm too lazy to actually do it :(
Has anyone ventured into light radius discussion before? I would like to see some max light radius going on.

. . . no1 read the post after mine.
Not even 30 mins after joining, I get Cham. I really, REALLY badly want to make BotD but I must do what I must do. One of the random mobs in the Countess gave me another Cham sometime ago and, after carefully re-reading the rules:

Background:

The Oculus

In the far-away land of Sanctuary there was once a legendary Sorceress. Powerful and noble, she had many true names but was commonly referred to by the lands inhabitants as Astrogha. She was the Protector of the Realm from the foul legions of The Red One. To aid her in the land's darkest hour, the Archwizard Telon had commissioned a weapon imbued with the most powerful magic weaves in all of Sanctuary.

She was valiantly slain in the Battle of Niz'trakul. In a battle lasting several days The Red One's right hand man, Pindleskin, had struck a mortal blow in the heat of the battle with his Shadowfang - a poisonous blade fused with the blood of tortured souls in Hell itself. Astrogha's wounds were so severe that not even the most experienced and powerful shamans could heal her. She was given proper burial and mourning lasted several days.

The whereabouts of Astrogha's fabled weapon are unknown, rumoured to be in the possession of a private collector.

Bahahahah no more zod god for pharphis
Congrats are in order even though I don't like you anymore :p

Zod God for 1 week. Title for 2 days + however long it takes for someone to message Elly and tell her to get rid of it lol.
Awesome Occy Solar!
I haven't tried a max light radius build, but I made a min light radius build - you can read about it here [/shameless self-promotion]

And gg, Solar Ice, on ruining pharphis' megalomaniac efforts to reach the Olymp!
Wow that item is so unnecessarily extravagant I can hardly even take it. Upgraded occulus by itself is hilarious. Eth upped and zodded is gaudy to say the least.
Cool story! And gz a lot with this pretty crazy weapon, bringing you to a shared 1st place at the grail tournament. Pharphis will lose his title and so also loses the right to act like a Zod God.

OT: Isnt max light radius capped at 7 or something?

edit: It is capped at -12 to +5 according to wiki:
http://diablo2.diablowiki.net/Light_Radius
Zod in a sorceress orb... whatisthisidonteven. At least pharphis' item was marginally useful. :badteeth:
I thought about it and the answer is: yes

If you lose a grailer due to HC death, atma-bugging, other unsocketing, unbackupped pc crashes or other ways to lose your grailer, then you also lose a point in the Zod God Grail.

Reasoning: If you want to do one of the above things for whatever reason, you could simply find/make a second version of the grailer before risking/destroying it.
aaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahahahahaha..

Zodded occulus. that is... wow...

If one is going for a waste of zod, I think occy is a good choice, big style points. But disappointed that you didn't make it in anything with variable stats. Eth 30% csd perfect Death's Fathom- that'd be the stuff of legends :)
I've never seen a perfect Fathom, 30CSD, 40LR and 40FR. An eth would be awesome. But with a Zod instead of a facet... meh
i think pharphis should make a sept with his trashy headstriker :p
I did not thoroughly check, but I don't think I have anything with Perfect, Elite, eth with variable stats. :p I do have another Zod God Grailer that I can use for this Tourney though (just need to find the main "ingredient" 🔥 ). And yeah, Fathom would have been really cool, but getting an eth one with perfect CSD and res is incredibly rare. :yes:

Thanks for the comments, all.



I will second that! 🔥 :jig: :nod:
You just want him to loose his in battle so you can be the zod god :p
No, no, I do not have any such intentions! 🇳🇴 🔥 :jig: 🤥
I did suggest he use it on pindleskin :p
This tournament has made me do the switcharuski to SC. :(
Haha! :point: pharphis' title has already been revoked! That means the way is clear for me! Now where are my 28,563,737,812,992 Els? :crazyeyes:
That's it? Only 28 trillion els? I have 1.8 mil x 2 k gems! Sadly, only have 12 billion Els lying around. :(
You're pretty close to a zod there. . .
Don't forget, you can pick up runes higher than El during gameplay, and that will speed up the cubing process. :nod:

Oh. Except for Zod runes, of course, you cannot cube them up. Just throw those away :yes:
Yeah, I agree, those are most definately junk.
Zod God Theorycrafting.

In this early stage of the tournament it is obvious that finding the Zod runes is the limiting factor of becoming the Zod God. However it is obvious that in later stages of the tournament, the limiting factor will be the Item candidates for Zod God Grailers.
It is easy to see that it will be harder to find a perfect ethereal Tomb Reaver, as it is to find 252 Zod Runes.

But I was wondering, what about the Lem runes? To make a perfect elite ethereal armor, you need to upgrade normal and exceptional armors to their elite versions. This will cost a Lem rune, but it is not guaranteed, even unlikely, that the result will be perfect.

So for example, to make a Zod God Corpsemourn, about 114 Lem runes are needed and only 1 Zod Rune. If we look at the runedrop tables, then we see that Zod runes are 27.7 times more rare as Lem runes, so finding these Lem runes will be harder as finding that Zod rune in case you want to make a Zod God Corpsemourn.

So I decided to calculate how many Lem runes are likely to be needed to finish the Zod God Grail. The answer is: 764 for the helmets, 3260 for the body armors, 266 for the shields and 174 for the class specific armor items. A total of 4464 Lem runes needed.:coffee:

By the time you have found 252 Zod runes, you will have found about 6995 Lem runes, excluding Hell Forge and lower area (LK/countess for example) running.

So the good news for the hard core Zod God wannabees: As long as you stash your Lem runes you will have enough of them! :party:
When I saw this thread had a new post I was worried.
I think finding perfect bases (aside from def) for upgrading will be another difficult part, but I suppose there are enough of the already perfect bases that many of those could be used.
Thanks for the crafting! I don't think I've ever neglected to pick up a lem rune. You can never have too many of them.

I haven't even found a tomby yet, so we'll see how that first one turns out ;)
Don't forget the Pul, Ko, Lum, and all the perfect gems either..
That lem/zod explanation sounds nice in theory, but i think you're making a critical mistake in your thinking. By the looks of it you assume people will be running areas that can drop up to zod all the time. In that case the lem to zod ratio seems to be limited by lems. However, if i would need that many lems and pay no attention to the amount of zods i might need in the future, i'd be running the countess instead. Way faster and reliable runedrops. You'd have enough lem runes a long time before you'd have that many zods. That's assuming you have the gems to upgrade runes close to lem, but maybe it'll even be the case if you just pick up the lems and leave everything else on the ground.
What about chams, though?
Don't forget that every toon you play through has 2 shots at a Lem (or Pul, which you'll need for weapons...or at Ko/Lum, which is the 'other' rune in the upgrade formulae) at the NM/Hell HellForge.

I HF rush a LOT in 1.07, to get crafting runes, and have a great many Lems/Puls, which are not particularly useful there...Lum/Ko, on the other hand, ARE crafting runes in 1.07, so I burn them up quickly and ALWAYS need more...

WoRG
I'm pretty sure I've found somewhere around 9001 lem runes over the years, while my rarest rune otherwise (just playing in A85 levels) is a Jah.

Well, I've got 2 chams and I'm ready to make another zod god grailer to reclaim my title (screw you solar).

The problem is that all my base items are really lame, so I'll list them here. People can vote or convince me to choose one.

Arm of King Leoric
Blackbog's Sharp
Bloodrise
Carin Shard
Headstriker
Hellplague
Homunculus
Shadowfang
Skewer of Krinitz
Snakecord
Spectral Shard
Spellsteel
Stormrider
The Dragon Chang
Ume's Lament
Warlord's Trust

Headstriker isn't actually an option.
Why not wait for nicer stuff?
Snakecord FTW.
I didn't get a chance to say on Hamachi, but, please please don't use any of these. I might cry.


Edit: Snakecord! :rolf:
oops :p

I meant to not include those items (bloodfist and a few others). Oh well, it leaked through and now I'm going to zod that belt!
Headstriker looks good to me. You wouldn't be original though.
Yes, so it wouldn't be an additional zod god grailer.
Aokl sounds good to me
Stormrider would be cool :)
I have a perfect eth Hoz in SC 1.10a. Gieb Runez?
Well, no matter what he chooses, he will still have 250 items to go for the grail... :badteeth:

Could've unsocket and Zod again. >_>
Wouldn't BotD be nice to have in HC? Or didn't you deed all the griefs? :p
I only have one grief (340 roll in my 15/2 base PB :rant:) and haven't used one. . . like ever, somehow.

QUIT GIVIN' ME GRIEF!! (cwutididther?)

I just want Solar to feel like he wasted his chams even more.
Zod god should only use authentic zod. Cubed chams.. pfff

omg, i do not remember this. awesome.



i want one.
I would also love a botd, but someone keeps wasting all the damn zods!
Well I'm the only one who's put in enough AT runs to find them ;)

@zaph,
I agree to an extent. i mean, the tournament is already pretty ridiculous, but I didn't make the rules ;)
Pharphis, congrats on being a Zod god again! Thanks for the awesome video too. Gotta say... DAMN YOU GOT SOME CHARMS!!! What are all those charms? Are they all MF? Curious! I wanted to do some MP one of these days and maybe participate in a tournament like this, maybe you can help me out? Haha thanks again for sharing! See you around lucky bastard!

-Zero
ha, all those skillers are FoE's. I'm borrowing them until I can find some runes in the pit to trade for them.

The rest of the runes are nothing special as I've deeded and good set of SCs on either my blizzy or FoHer. The charms are primarily life/mana.
Yeah, that's my charms :badteeth:

Running with a full inventory (cube+charms+possible ID tome) is pretty common when MFing. Helps optimize the build and when you've been MFing for a while you stop picking up a lot of items anyways. And the hassle of opening the inventory to drag items to the cube isn't that bad when you get used to it.

Edit: also, if you're into HC, join logout's hamachi-channel for MP action :) can be found in the MP sub-forum. Always a great time with nice, helpful people (and ofc pyro).
You mean especially pyro.
*puts on his politician voice*

"Only in the SPF. The amount of runes that were thrown away in this single event could have provided for three naked Assassins, fourteen starving Necromancers, covered the dental work for two Druids, and sent five Barbarians to school for three years.

Only in the SPF..."

Anyway, nice fun. I feel stupid for voting on items that weren't even on the list. Forums own me. And you own me. You've thrown away more runes than I've ever had!
(At pharphis' suggestion, I just added the Zod God Grail to the list!)

Next Zod/two Chams are reserved for my eth Tomby, so next update might take a while...
You have a perfect eth Tomby waiting? (or you don't and that's why it might take a while? :p)
It's a non-perfect of course :D Odds for perfect eth Tomby are astronomical :)

Still probably takes a while until I find enough Chams (or Zods) to continue my journey to Zod God.
You are the newest recipient of the Zod God's love and admiration. A+
@Grape non perfect, no zod god item :p
Zod-god tournament where it is accepted to cube Chams to Zod. Yikes.
:D Yeah, too bad. I try my best to not Zod any imperfect items after that Tomb Reaver's!

@Gripphon indeed, and even lower ones too :O Judging by your flavie after RFO, you could dethrone pharphis if you wanted...

... go for it :D

edit: might have been Cyrax's flavie I was thinking. Well, you should have more than enough anyway..
I've already wasted 4 HC chams on this tournament, and 1 zod
Wash your mouth out zod god is never a waste.....

"In the lap of the Zod God"

It's so easy, but I can't do it
So risky - But I gotta chance it
It's so funny, there's nothing to laugh about
My Chams, that's all you wanna talk about
I can see what you want me to be
But I'm no fool

It's in the lap of the Zod God
I can see what you want me to be
But I'm no fool

No beginning, there's no ending
There's no meaning in my pretending
Believe me, life goes on and on and on
Forgive me when I ask you where do I belong
You say I can't set you free from me
But that's not true

It's in the lap of the Zod God
I can see what you want me to be
But I'm no fool
It's in the lap of the Zod God
Wo wo la la la wo
Wo wo la la
Wah wah ooh
But that's not true

Zodphis still best, OP
;(
(these are tears of happiness not fear)
Why Bonehew tho.
Congrats! That is an awesome item!

But, sorry to bum you out, that is only 0.5 points. I see another spot for another zod...
Probably because it's harder to get then the already-perfect items.

Still, what goes in the other slot?
an el for the lols?
I'm not ashamed to admit that I don't even know what that does. AR? light radius? *shrug*
Amn would be pretty damn cool
Only if it went in first, so you can say it is complete from amn to zod.
Haha, it's not that I'm drowning to the items suitable in this tournament :D So yeah, I made the pick with coolness and usefulness in mind.

We'll see about the second socket. I'll make a char using this weapon sooner or later ;)
Well, I hope you put it on a merc and have it get eaten by a corpse spitter ;)
Dear SPF, I'm afraid that we have entered into dark times, where Zod God walks the Sanctuary no more.

But there's no need for anxiety, the future is bright and I am sure the Light of the Zod God will shine upon us once again...


As per rules, there there can only be one Zod God, there will be no Zod God in case of a tie.

@pharphis, you can't act like Zod God anymore, I'm sorry. But please don't delete the forum :D

My favorite part about that video are the misclicks. But, they did make the timing line up to the music, so it works!

Pharphis is HC, and Gods' do not die, does that mean Pharphis is a False Zod God since he is Mortal?
I can confirm Pharphis is false God indeed. God is supposed to be immortal, aka indestructible. And Phar couldn't find Pharsword and Tyrael's, of which both are indestructible, aka items made for Gods.

@Grape
Congratz on wasting nice runes to cube useless rune to socket it into even more useless weapon!
Just kidding. All hail Zod Gods Phar and Grape!
Cubing up from Ohm to Zod, 'tis the way to go! :cool: If you need moar lolrunes to cube just ask me! :p

Lmao
Yo, nice choice of weapon.

Posted via tapatalk from my forum deletion device 5000
Shuddup, falsie.
I hate you :p

Also, Lo runes?! Hilarious. I think I only wasted 4 cham runes + a zod for mine.

Also good timing on the music. If my week wasn't ruined by the ending of my favorite podcast (biggest problem in the universe) then this would have made my week :p

edit: yes, ohm runes. Even more hilarious
So should I start running AT again for chams? Tempting

lol @ cubing from Ohm... and I loved the misclicks and the timing of music as well. <3
@Grape - Amazing! I for one welcome these dark times with no Zod God.



This is my favourite thing I've seen on here for quite some time. Also yes, get back to the AT, we haven't had a good deeds around here in some time.
My FoHer is incapable of deeding. He's got like 3500 life (lol betaCtA)
Don't sell yourself short. Where there's a will, there's a way.
@Grape Oh my (zod) God,, what did you do with the precious. All the beautiful RW that could have been made.

Back on topic, all hail th en Zod-God to be...
Any minute now

*furiously teleports*
As I parachute in, I have never found a Zod. I did trade a Ral for a Zod once. Yeah. Eventually got a Ber out of it. Love this thread.
I only found out about this thread just now. You guys are insane. That's all I'm going to say about this ...
I would rather say that we are goal-oriented gentlemen with moderate ambitions.

Grail -249 :cool:
That's the nicest thing anyone has ever said about me
BTW, I had a look at my stash and saw a cham rune unused, so I guess I only need a cham for the next grailer ;)

I have a jah too but that one was gifted ;(
I'll try to trade for that Cham to help Grape rule the Zodworld!
I should head back to Travi, I guess. :p

Speaking of grailers, I have Messerschmidt's Reaver and Hellslayer next in line, until something more interesting drops. Any build ideas for those axes? I'll try to use my Zod God items at least once, making a Mat/Pat around each...
Lord of Mages and Enchantress obv
all my eth items are really lame. I would like to make an armor next but the only plausible thing i have (iirc) is a spirit shroud that MIGHT get good def ;p

edit: but don't worry, I've gained 60 mil exp and nothing interesting has dropped. Highest rune was pul I think
Yeah, Enchantress seems obvious to me too. But what would Lord of Mages get from those? :D



I would love to find some usable eth armor too. I upgraded my three eth Twitchthroes lately, but no luck.
I had tons of those in 1.10a when I was farming beta BKWBs and I don't think I bothered forwarding them. Oops
Just remember to keep all Tals, Shaels, Kos and Lems. And perfect diamonds!

Many unique armors are in the 1/100+ range when it comes to chance of perfect. Given they roll perfect ED in the first place (or don't have variable ED) :D

Let's not even talk about it if they have more variables...
I don't know, but more people need to make melee Necros. Theyre p fun

Could just go with Summoner and Amp, instead of LoM with Lower Res as the fire damage is puny. If you get bored make an Iron Golem out of it. The extra AR on the Reaver would help

Iron Golem out of a Zod God item. I'm horrified to even think such thing.

I should have plenty of time to brainstorm about the builds while farming for the runes...
Ya, armor is next for me, ideally, since I have 2x wep and a helm iirc. At least nightwing's veil or whatever it's called is just an all-around great item
The ground of The Sanctuary was shaking, shadows were stepping aside... The Altar of Heavens on top of the Mount Arreat was bathing in eternal, bright flames. The spirits of the Nephalem, the Ancient Ones felt it too, with an immense relief inside them. The Light of Anu was shining once again.

The Zod God walks the earth.


Dear SPF, there can be only one Zod God.

I am the Zod God.

The drop that pulled the trigger. Cham was found from the Travincal and the other Jah from the Chaos Sanctuary.
This is what happens when you waste your time time-traveling, boys! Do not recommend.
Haha :p Should I be worried anytime soon?
That's probably just lulling me into a false feeling of security!

:confused:
Congratulations on defeating all your advesaries, i.e. @pharphis, and reasserting your position as Zod God.

And yes, it still hurts my eyes to see the runes wasted, I mean being put to good use ;-).
Well it HAS been over 4 years since I first became zod god and no one has surpassed* me since. Not enough rune-wasters on this forum, it seems.

*I've been tied a few times
I missed this! Congrats @Grape, all hail the new Zod God!
Thanks guys! :D



What is this nonsense about rune-wasters?! Heresy!

Cubing the lower, lesser, runes up to a Zod is a form of carrying the ancient rites of the Zod God cult. You can think it little bit like an immolation in the name of Zod.

Putting Zods into their proper home, perfect, ethereal elite unique items is the purest form of worship.
As a non-zod god I have to refer to zod god items as wasteful. You know the rules.
So it came to pass.

You sir, are insane !!! Good luck on getting the last 2. The Zod runes shouldn't be a problem. Not sure if you already have the base items though ...
Thanks! (insane, yeah tyvm!! :p )

Well, Barb is most likely going to be next. I have planned to use Bloodtree Stump with him, leaping around or something. Sounds pretty badass to me :p

Amazon, well I have many choices but I'm not entirely happy with any of them. Maybe I'll keep grinding while playing these couple characters, and hope for some really inspiring drop.
I once built a Leap Attack Barb, but didn't really like it. Impressive lcs numbers, but other than that ... I played him in MP games with someone else, and as sort of support character it wasn't too bad, but solo? Not sure about it. Although maybe I was just bad at it.

Not sure what else you could do with Barb though. Doesn't make much sense to make a Zod God item and then make a singer ;). A DS or Frenzy Barb would be cool, but that requires you to make yet another Zod God item ... Come to think of it, now that would be epic, no?
We will see :)

Haven't made Leap Attack barb, so it would be one off the buidlist. If I don't like it a lot, I'll just play it in shorter sessions, and it shouldn't be a huge problem. Maybe give him an option for some other skill with switch if it's too much of a bore.
