Phew, finally found Tal Rasha's Adjudication.  Figured that would take forever.  Only took... 90 set amulets or so.  Also found a Marrowwalk and a Cranebeak for a few more grailers.

After finding that Titan's Revenge (and another later), been working on a Javazon.  Stopped at Normal Cows to farm for the Cow King's Hooves to complete the set, which took about 25 full clears (on top of 250 others from my Necro, Wind Druid, Bowazon, etc.), but at least that's done.  She's now blowing through NM on players 8 like it's nothing, killing bosses in <10 seconds with a lvl 25 Charged Strike, which is way stronger than I thought it was.  It'll be even more fun when she gets to level 76 and can use a 19/14 Griffon's Eye socketed with a 5/5 Facet.

I have been messing a bit in 1.09 now and then. Gambled an awesome pair of amazon gloves today with life and mana leech, resists and skills.

I never found a SOJ in any version.

I went thru my stashes and found I still have 105 skill grand charms pretty evenly split between all classes.

Long time no see D2A! :)

How is that Beast coming Timinator?  Any luck finding with runes to make one?  Seems like one of the more fun runewords to make.

I had a failed unique Archon Staff drop from one of Eldritch's minions, which I thought was actually impossible since he and his minions are lvl 84 and are capped at TC84 drops, whereas the Archon Staff is lvl 85/TC87 (Mang Song's Lesson is qlvl86, which is why it couldn't drop).  Kinda weird.  I think the diablowiki mentions that most regular monsters can actually drop items from a TC just above their level (but not a unique/set with a qlvl above their level I guess), it's just incredibly rare.

Ouch! Lots of people still miss that.  I was lucky to get mine in 2005. Only ever one so far

I just found a Griffon's Eye off Baal.  It rolled terrible (-16%/+10%), but still, it's a Griffon's Eye.  Down to 58 items left in PlugY.
