The Untwinked Level 99 Progress Thread, Revenge of the 99ers

Yeah, it is good to see that people are still going at it. I had to take a break from games for a while (I do this from time to time), but when I get home from work in two weeks I hope to pick up Natur and continue the journey. Godspeed, travelers!

Pestilence is getting close to level 98, with a nice milestone of 3.2B. He got the next 3M to 97.9, and should finish up the level this weekend, I think. I thought about holding off on the update til pinging, but the 3._ milestones are nice occasions :)

Drops were better than the last quarter level. Obviously, almost immediately after finding my first overall Earth Shifter, he got a second one, this one +296% ED. So I guess a Druid is in the plans eventually . . . .

Other drops meriting screen shots were Greyform, Lo #3, a 5/4 poison RBF, Griffon’s #3, the eth Hone Sundan noted in Item Find thread, and IK armor #2 for 97-98. He also picked up plenty of other high TC S/U, including another Set CB, Trang helm, Unique Champion Axe, 2os HHG, Tal’s Armor, Set Diadem, and set Corona #3. He also got a +10 life Sounding skiller.

I am mixing in some RFL Rd 1 runs with Quinta, a little more than 13 hours in, so likely not finishing the set. Then it will be focused on Pestilence to 98, and hopefully getting Death to 93 before start of RFL Rd 2.

@PhineasB Did I just read 'Griffon's #3'? I so hate you ;). Congrats on the progress, you never cease to amaze me.

@jjscud Welcome to the fun. Hammerdin is a very good choice. As already pointed out, you don't even need to do LK if that's not your cup of tea. It's the most efficient way, but with some not too hard to get gear, you can easily level at Eldritch and then farm xp and runes at Travincal and/or CS.

@Quinneczech Nice going !!!

Guess thats what happen when you drop griffons on daily basis... :)
Honestly, i know that feeling. I am sitting at Griffons #4 without ever having found a unique Ward or a Bul Kathos Ring.

On a side note: after 8 stone crushers, I finally found schaefers 3 days ago, leaving me at Grail -8. So I got this going for me...

RNG really forced that last one, giving me 4 unique legendary mallets in ~2 weeks o_O

@buckcrazy - I feel your pain on the sorc. Hiatus didn't find one either, all the way to level 99. But Quinta got hers, so it's all good :)

So I have an excellent LK map on arkana and am not willing to reroll maps because of it. However I really could use reapers for round 2 of rfl on my other characters. So I've been doing mephy runs with arkana on a 25+ teleport map (while using long tele trick) just in case this would happen:



Woo! That was shako in <50 runs, and arachs in <300.

@MizzouFTW the lightning is negative now too since I replaced my fcr/light res ring with a nagel post-arachs :p But I have a moat between me and mephy. Side note though, I did a few AT runs with these resists, having forgotten to swap my gear around to where I have about 30 all res, and could hardly tell the difference.

Up until the point you face a pack of lightning enchanted conviction mobs that one shot you :mad:

He just recently hit lvl 95 (throwing down the glove for @Hutton), still running baal for exp.
Nice!

Seeing as I've spent the last 20 hours of playing murdering cows on my Javazon, I suspect the gauntlet will be remaining on the floor! :D

I'm about 40% of the way through 94. Hoping to hit 95 in time for RFL Round 2 in which I'll be running the barb.

My Baal settings are p1 clear, p8 wave 1, p1 wave 2, p8 wave 3 and 4, p5 wave 5, and p3 Baal.

The final wave pretty consistently rinse my merc on higher player settings- pretty sure it's because p5 is the threshold for my hits putting them into hit recovery.

What gear are you running on your merc?

I'm pretty tempted to use my final socket quest to put an ED jewel in my Arreat's*...

*I know G-Face is better, but I want to look like a Barbarian not some jive turkey.
