Title: [D2 Treasure Trove] - New finds, resurrected from the dead!
Post by: Dust on November 19, 2019, 08:52:29 PM
I've been hitting D2 pretty hard since re installing. While I'm having almost no luck with pindle or getting keys to drop, I've found a couple of things along the way:


Five minute break for pit runs after 50+ countess runs with no drops...

Which is awesome, but I don't play necromancers. :(

A hundred or so Pindle runs gave me junk, but he did drop this ring, which isn't terrible:

Otherwise, it's just been collecting gems and charms to re roll later.

For a long time I decided I "didnt' play" certain characters.  But have you ever patriarched a necro?  All 7 classes play quite differently.     Think of it as a male sorceress who instead of cold/lightnight/fire has poison and magic (and curses!).  They can definitely be powerful and a range of builds that work.

Oh, I get that, but I know how valuable I think the assassin version of that skiller is... it's a shame there isnt someone still around playing P&B necro to get the best out of it...

More sweet, sweet pit finds: (Although, oddly, very few uniques seem to be dropping for me, even with 400%+ MF...)

Then this beauty dropped, which I thought would be my best find for the day:

But random pit monsters had other ideas:

Not getting any elite or exceptional uniques aside, this appears to be one of my best D2 patches ever.

The tune drops of 1.14 are awesome compared to 1.09 or 1.10 etc here is some stuff to inspire you https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLchTMRijDSByHvKZNDjbT7sNRHqxWuNtI

Remember unlike d3 you have a whole or less control trying to get certain stuff. But if you put in the time you will get something with time

Found a bunch of stuff, but this was probably the find of the week:

If it had been assassin and had the godly two sockets, it would have been the best find I've ever had in D2...
Title: Re: [D2 Treasure Trove] - New finds, resurrected from the dead!
Post by: Dust on December 04, 2019, 04:24:38 AM
Been finding stuff, and doing Baal runs to level, nothing too exciting

Managed to stash up 600 perfect skulls, so had a rare diadem re roll session, and scored this: (socket was Larzuk, and the jewel is +5str and 14 res all)
(https://i.imgur.com/UxXXsbl.jpg)

Considering my most wanted item is a +2 skill, +20FCR, +20 res all, + mana 2 socket helm, I'm pretty stoked.

Yes.

I just need something g similar for assassin, and I will be a happy man...

Holy Cripes...I just had a Cham rune drop from a regular monster on a Baal run.  Highest rune I've ever found.  Right off the WSK2 waypoint.

GG, that's super neat.

That's 9 Unid'd Hellfire torches, because for some reason I thought it would be more exciting collecting 10 or 12 to ID at once.

Post by: mn4nu on December 31, 2019, 08:48:15 AM
Nice haul Dust!  Hopefully you get something useful out of that.  I'm too impatient to wait that long to ID them.

What character are you using to do your runs for the horn, eye, and brain?  I use a smiter, but am finding the Forgotten Sands a real pain in the ass with those physical immune bugs.  Everything else is easy except for that.
Title: Re: [D2 Treasure Trove] - New finds, resurrected from the dead!
Post by: Dust on December 31, 2019, 09:08:32 AM
Fury druid for the whole thing, and yes, the physical immunes are a massive pain in the arse.

I've been using gimmershred to deal with them, but even then its annoying - the main reason I haven't completed a full dozen is I had a Duriel run that needed more than 50 full rejuves on the weekend - he was wedged in between a pack of the bugs and a mana burn/phys immune/stone skin scarab.

After that, I couldn't face key hunting or ubers until today... just yuck. To be honest - smite not needing to worry about AR means you'll be finding it easier than me. My gear is heavily tuned toward AR - including the enchant buff, I'm hitting at around 28k and it still barely feels enough.

I'm just not that into paladins, and only have a druid in the right level range anyway.

Once I get one more, I'm going to take a short break anyway - I'm hoping one of them is a useful assassin one, so I can get on with pushing Legacy to 99 and I don't even want to think about how much of a grind that's going to be.
Title: Re: [D2 Treasure Trove] - New finds, resurrected from the dead!
Post by: Timinator on December 31, 2019, 10:08:36 AM
Epic rune! What will you do? And all those torchís! Wow hope you get something good for your assassin!
Title: Re: [D2 Treasure Trove] - New finds, resurrected from the dead!
Post by: mn4nu on December 31, 2019, 10:15:12 AM
I've been using a Lawbringer phase blade on switch to get decrepify for removing the PI on the bugs.  It's slow, and life tap overrides it, but it was the best way I found to take them out.  Running Duriel on battelnet was much easier because he always spawned right by the place where you portal in.  Not so in the PlugY mod.  You have to go find him, which means fighting all those PI bastards.

I don't know what to do with the Cham.  There really aren't any "gotta have this" runewords for it.  I think my best bet is to wait for another to drop (sure, that will happen anyday now) and make a Zod, or put it in a nice eth Andariels Visage for the merc.  I don't have one of those either, so it will sit in the stash and look pretty for the time being.
Title: Re: [D2 Treasure Trove] - New finds, resurrected from the dead!
Post by: Dust on December 31, 2019, 10:25:15 PM
Didn't want to wait any longer :D

Out of the 10 torches I got - 4 paladin, 3 Necro, 2 Assassin, and one Druid.

Druid was a weird 20/10. Worst torch was a 12/13 Paladin.

Best Paladin was 18/15. Best Necro was 19/14.

And this is going straight on:

Yeah, it was a relief...

About the Cham - are you looking for any other high runes? Would you be interested in a trade?

I'm doing this whole PlugY thing self-found with all new items and characters, so no trading.  Thanks for the offer though.

Post by: mn4nu on January 02, 2020, 01:52:47 PM
With PlugY you have an infinite stash on your account, so you don't need ATMA.  Prior to using PlugY I had switched over to GoMule for storing items.

Wow, I don't know if I've ever found anything like that.  I hardly ever pick up blue rings though.  Nice find!
Title: Re: [D2 Treasure Trove] - New finds, resurrected from the dead!
Post by: Dust on January 09, 2020, 11:48:59 AM
I've been thinking = I collect an assortment of stuff, but I know others collect different things.

Do you guys want anything specific?

I search for interesting (some strong, others just... weird) claws. Back in the atma days, I had a stash of thousands, but now I have less than 50. I also collect cool blue jewellery and interesting jewels.

Is there anything you guys want me to keep an eye out for? One of the other places I hang out everyone seems to lust after druid pelts with +5 to tornado...

In short: let me know what you want, and I'll keep an eye out for it on my travels :)

As Duggeh used to say UNF UNF UNF! I would like to spend some time in D2 and would really like to get some new items.  Just at the moment my gaming time is spent in other areas.  Frustration in those will probably change that

I found a Stone of Jordan a couple of days ago with my necromancer.   It's always nice to have one of those drop.

I found *another* Ber this morning, from a snake in Nihlathaks Chamber... meaning if you cubed them up, I've found more total runes in the 3 months since I restarted than the entire time I played D2 originally.

Which is bonkers. Because I played D2 way too much for years.

Yes - they are mind numbing.

I think it's more effective to do 98-99 hunting Nihlathak, but I'm staying away from the heavy grind for a bit. The last 100 million exp was very hard going.

Going to do a little bit of MFing, then maybe level a new build if I can find one that interests me.

I do plan on getting her to 99 but... it will be a while.
