Diablo 2: Runeword grail
« on: January 12, 2020, 03:46:57 PM »
Here is a link to the old thread http://www.gamersoasis.net/backup/index.php?topic=17305.0 There was a post from 2010 and excitement picked up as patches at that time increased the rune drops.

Why, Why not?

Ok, really, with 1.13b, runes were made much more common. A "runeword grail" has been tossed around for some time but never as something that could seriously be accomplished. Now I believe it is a possibility and could hold the interest of those that are missing the feeling of finding just one high rune.

On to the formalities.

What's in a Runeword Grail?
78 Runewords. That's 24 from 1.09, 24 from 1.10, 23 from 1.10 RWM, and 7 from 1.11. These match what is reported in flavie and I'll include a full list below.

Anything else?
Please include the highest version you use for this. The previous post talked about "Forum accepted mods" but the majority of active users use PlugY.  Also civilization did not stop, none of use turned into lepers where our limbs fell off.  We are mature folk who play the game for fun.

Beyond that, lets call this open for comments for the moment. If there are any good suggestions (even something most like but I don't) lets get them added quickly so we all get started on the same foot.

Um, no way am I trying for this.  It's about as close to impossible as can be.

Yeah, not sure I'm up for this seeing as I lost all my previous runewords, including Fury and Silence....

Not sure which part of that statement is crazier: 'I've been working 18 years so far on mine.' or '...doesn't have to be finished this year.'

Love ya Timmeh...don't change. :)

We're like family here!
You love the people, but it's not like there's another option :P

You're genuinely insane Tim and I will pass on this challenge, but will definitely follow your progress!
