    Hey everybody :)

    With my main studies finished for a couple of months, I only really have my genetics studies, the gym and Briony occupying me, which means more Diablo time! Unfortunately Redemptio is on the back burner until I get a few upgrades I'm after. This means that my only current project is Fordyl, my CS hammerdin, who is about 1/4 of the way to 98, so some way still to go. However, just playing a CS hammerdin gets dull, and whilst I've had some nice drops (2 Griffon's and a Tyrael's :loving:), I figured I pick my AT runner up again.

    The aim is to complete 5000 runs (I may not reach that, as Fordyl will still be my primary project) at P1, with 'Kitteh'. Her equipment is listed below;

    Helmet:

    I opted not to go for my usual 3 piece Tal simply because I'm bored of it, so I used a different set up this time, including the CoH which I almost never use on a non questing character.

    At the end, I'll create haul pics, because they look good :loving:

    I'll post non tc87/3/high rune drops as I go, just the nicer ones.


    I hope you will keep up with my progress, this is timed quite well actually because I can use the MTO thread for inspiration, via the haul pics :)

    Cool to see a change in equipment, although I think it's strictly worse than 3 piece 105 FCR Tal's. But it's kind of fun to look like a Hammerdin on switch. But given that you have a reasonably good DF, seems like another alt would be 63 FCR Skullder's setup. (Frozzzen has a model from an old Meet the Olympians thread I think).

    What are you still looking for?

    Re: 5000 Ancient Tunnel Runs: A bid to finish the grail by Christmas!

    I was going to use Skullder's instead of CoH as I have a topazed ethereal one, but I use that a lot too :(
    I also hate not having atleast 105fcr, drives me mad. I always have 125 on hammerdins.

    The items I still need are;

    Lenymo
    Stormlash
    Earth Shifter
    Astreon's
    Mang Song
    Death's Web (I've had a couple before (about 2 days apart^^), but not since I restarted)
    Atma's Scarab
    Metalgrid
    Spirit Keeper
    Facet - die/fire
    Sander's Paragon
    Griswold's Honour

    :)

    Good luck! I am really digging that amulet, the minus poison duration is a great addition for AT running imo. I tend to tele into zombies and get punched a lot.

    I have a habit of walking through the poison clouds because I'm careless like that.

    Good luck with your runs! Although I have a feeling you will need more than 5k. :badteeth:

    Tele for merc positioning, walk very short distance to move out of merc's way and out of harms way.

    Re: 5000 Ancient Tunnel Runs: A bid to finish the grail by Christmas!

    362 runs done, pretty poor results so far, one close call to a grailer. I did however, find this beauty;

    Code:
    Ormus' Robes 
    Dusk Shroud 
    Defense: 480 
    Durability: 10 of 20 
    Required Level: 75 
    Required Strength: 77 
    Fingerprint: 0x7d0a2e42 
    Item Level: 88 
    Version: Expansion 1.10+ 
    +20% Faster Cast Rate 
    +15% to Cold Skill Damage 
    +12% to Lightning Skill Damage 
    +15% to Fire Skill Damage 
    +3 to Blizzard (Sorceress Only) 
    +18 Defense 
    Regenerate Mana 14%
    
    And a Head Hunter's.

    You're averaging 1.5% completion per day, at this rate you'll be done in 67 days from your start date of July 8, which is September 4th.

    Hey, I only deeded 2 real chars anyway, with 6K and 7.5K runs between the two of them.

    Couldn't resist doing the math...

    On average your chars have 6,75K runs done. With 75K needed that would cost you 11,111 chars. So if Kitteh would finish within 11 months his statement would be true. And if ND's math of finishing in september is correct he'd be well within those 11 months.

    Myth confirmed. :D

    Re: 5000 Ancient Tunnel Runs: A bid to finish the grail by Christmas!

    Only if you're counting kitteh running 5k runs but counting it as though I ran 75k (or. 60k, I didn't check your math).

    But nope, sounds like I would get a char to lvl 94/95 and deed a week or two after kitteh finishes. So

    myth busted.
