I found a Windforce and a Gul rune last night! Down to 40 items left to find.

Congrats on the Windforce! That's one of the items that always eluded me in my self-found grail. The glorious golden hydra bow!

Found an Azurewrath last night! This one is sweet since I found about 9 Lightsabers prior to getting the good phase blade. 38 items to go!

Had a really nice large charm drop last night. +157poison damage over 6 secs with an added 6% gold drop. I'll be holding onto that one for future use.

Nice charm Darkness! The best one those I've found so far in PlugY is 313 damage/11 sec small charm. It's rare to get 2 good poison damage mods on a charm.

I found a unique Kraken Shell last night, so 37 items to go.

I've had some "generic bad file" weirdness.

So I've decided to progress from 1.09 to 1.13d. Fine. Upgrade the files, launch my Barb and I get the generic bad file message. Perplexed I try that with some of my mules. They're fine. I try it with the mule I've been using to transfer items to my 1.14 characters. Same message.

Revert all files (plus saves) back to 1.09, take items off mule. Try again. Same message. Revert back again.
Try character files, both mule and barb in 1.14, they work fine.

Try back in 1.09 again. Both characters work fine.
Try 1.13. This time the mule is fine but the barb is not.
Mule all items on the barb over to another mule for the express purpose of testing where the corruption is.
Barb loads fine. Mule does not. Aha, I think, item on the mule is corrupt.
Start moving the items, one by one, over to the another toon, to test which is the corrupt item that means the characters won't load.
Every item loads fine.
Move all items back to the Barb, the character loads fine.

I have no fucking clue what the problem was.

On the same run I leveled my sorceress to 95, she found a pretty nice Death's Web, 2/2/-47!  I was pretty excited when I saw the unique unearthed wand laying on the ground in WSK3.  34 items to go.

I also found another Windforce off Pindleskin the other day!

EDIT:  OK, so I was looking at this death's web I got and in PlugY it tells you the item level of all the items that drop.  It says mine is ilvl 85, which makes sense because I found it in WSK3, but that also means it was from just a regular monster, not a champ (ilvl 88) or unique (ilvl 87), or even a minion.  The odds of that dropping from a regular monster in WSK at 374% mf, players 3, are 1:3277792.  OMFG!  That might be the luckiest drop I've ever gotten in D2, and that includes when Baal dropped Tyreal's Might back in the day.

OK, I know nobody plays this anymore, but I can't not say anything about this.  I just found a Ber rune from the Council in Travincal.  So now I have 2 Bers and 2 Surs, which means I can make Enigma!

Nice!

I've taken a break from it.  Still have it installed, will go back to it when I get the urge again.  Will probably never make an Enigma, but it would be nice someday.

Woohoo!  I have a few factors stopping me playing, but I do desire to keep going.   That is one of the main things.  Keep going, and keep updating that Grail table :)

A legit Enigma is a great achievement. Congrats! What are you going to drop it in? Please post a screenshot after you push the big red button. :D

I'm not sure what I'm going to make it in yet. I have a nice archon plate and a few dusk shrouds, but nothing outstanding. The archon plate is the favorite for now.

Are you the type of person who cares what the visual is?  Do you want the super low strength requirement? they seem to be some of the key questions.  Archon Plate is best though I think, good defence, not too heavy

Don't care about visual.  I think Archon Plate is best too.  I'll probably wind up making it soon.  I cubed the runes the other day and they are just sitting in the stash.
