SO.

Instead of answering all your PMs, one belated thanks for sending them and making this round awesome by playing and participating in whatever way or amount you could. :)

@DiabloTwoinDC @pharphis did you run? Zero points? (I'm surprised). Send me your 1.07 Zod mails asap.

Also @MizzouFTW @Smittyphi @Nexeis @Drixx send me your results/inform me if you didn't run. Sorry, I may have missed if you have said so during the thread.

Results will be up tomorrow, anyway. And I'm a bit shocked. I think I have an idea who won this round. Maybe you have as well? Maybe you don't. ZZZ... good night.

@Grape Sorry buddy I didn't run. Didn't get ready in time and ended up getting distracted by side projects. Possibly next year but hopefully I'll be playing Diablo 4 (lol)

I just checked last RFL I participated in. Mathematically best set for Travincal I ever did net me only 59.6 points. Slower characters have unfair advantage.
Agreed. This round I had the most efficient cow runs I've managed at this point, but that's certainly not reflected in the results. ;)

As it appears we're already at Travincal Blizzy runs anyway, I think I've found my map after about 1.5 hours of rolling:


Best Trav map I've had so far. Initial runs at ~18.4s while picking things is not too bad. On old map last RFL it took a lot of effort to get sub 19s and that was with only picking qualifiers and super hectic/uncomfortable play. I'll try to roll something similar to Grip's jackpot map a bit more with the other Blizzy, but I'm happy to settle for this one if that doesn't work out.

@ffs you machine...even if i pop a map like this, and somehow hit that lvl of performance (that's the word !), no way i can be that focus on s&e/relaunching that fast for more than few minutes !

@ffs I can't really tell: do you use Enter + H or do you double click on the character and then press enter? And in the first case: is there a way that doesn't involve moving your left hand away from your ingame hotkeys?

I tested Arcane Sanctuary and with video analysis of 5 minutes killed total of 323 ghosts. Since each ghost counts as 3.5 other creeps, that would be like killing 226 creeps per minute. German calculator is down so I don't know do Arcane ghost drop same as CS ghosts and how to compare them to cows.

@Gripphon All Ghosts, Fingermages and Gloams drop from the Wraith TC which is basically independent of monster in Hell, only thing that changes is highest rune. Luckily Cows, Ghosts, Gloams and Fingermages go up to Zod and hence have identical Good TC.

As for odds: p5 Cow has 3/63 chance at good TC, p7 cow has 3/60 chance and p7 Ghost has 4/39 chance.

@art_vandelay By now I click and then hit H. Used to do the Enter + H thing also, it's not any slower but for me personally a bit more tedious for extended running. :)

@Gripphon Nice to see you checking out AS, which character are you running with? I also went about AS runs by counting monsters last year, some results are in this post. Apparently I concluded that 214 kills per minute in AS is equal to 143 (P7) or 157 (P5) cows per minute (but that includes non-ghost types). I'm pretty sure I used the GoMule calculator to compare that. Is there an issue with GoMule in this regard?

I'm using fireball sorc. She is killing ghosts in one blow and can also kill everything with few fireballs although I avoid doing it. I don't know about gomule calc, didn't use it yet.

@art_vandelay
Thank you.

Here was my S/U haul... not bad. several grailers and some good items for characters i plan on making. Charms were kind of shit despite the massive amount i picked up and ID'd. Only 1 skiller and it was a barb Mastery charm, so not very useful. Got a 7 mf sc and a few vita sc's, but nothing to write home about.

@art_vandelay arcane sanctuary monsters only drop up to Cham. Champs and bosses can drop zod, but drop the same as non-ghost champs and bosses.

@Gripphon all for p7 reciprocal chance for monster to drop rune:
normal: 325
cow: 217
ghost: 90.5

Arcane ghosts are indeed the same as chaos ghosts except cant drop zod (champs and bosses can but they drop like regular monster champs and bosses). I think the cows are always 1.5x better than reg monsters but the multiplier on ghosts is like this:



That spreadsheet I made has some ability to compare cows vs chaos vs arcane as well :)
 

art_vandelay

Diabloii.Net Member
@Luhkoh You're right of course. The chances are for Good TC though and since probability-wise 'runes16' is basically 'runes17 Minus Zod' the numbers should be correct.


The german drop calc being down will hopefully be an incentive for people to recalculate some stuff on their own. Some things there were always questionable to me, like Countess which according to their calc drops more runes on p8 than on p1 which we know to be wrong. (Also who knows how the hell they did Duriel :D )

Fun fact: Ghost-type monsters drop better in regards to jewelry and runes, but their facet chances are abysmal, something I had to learn to my dismay yesterday! :confused:

@Luhkoh
Thank you on numbers.

With more tests I could say that for fireball sorc AS is like killing 140-150 p5 cows per minute which is like a build killing 400 cows in 2:46. That's better than I thought it will be. I don't think CS can match those numbers.

That's really quite the pace...

With ~30 people running you can't exclude somewhat realistic Zod drop from someone, putting AS runners in disadvantage on that regard. Still, very nice spot to run it seems.
 

Gripphon

Diabloii.Net Member
Well, Zod is one of those runes players can't really farm with intention, they must simply hope it will drop. Seeing that of 20+ people participating no one found one on cows means AS runners are in advantage as well as in disadvantage at the same time.
