Hello Everyone I have completed the 10K Mephisto Runs Challenge. I am using the MF Run Counter

91% grail found all from the 10K Mephisto Runs minus a torch. If i count my mule then i probably will have less than 30 items left.

Start Date : August 18 2020

End Date: November 18 2020

Took 93 days from my calculations.


Reason

I needed some arachnid mesh and Andy Visages so i wanted to do a few mephisto. Also wanted to see what runes i can get and it did not disappoint.


My Map

Not too bad of a Map to Durance Level 3, 3-4 Teleport. My Hammerdin has a closer one but i did not want to play him because i did 10K Travincal challenge right before doing this one.

Also there are a lot of chests in Durance LVL 3 and playing Assassin means no need to buy keys to open them. Really enjoyed playing my trapsin too.

So my strategy was to clear the whole map 95% of the time, open up as many chests as i can including urns, stash. Basically almost everything except baskets because that will take a lot longer.


Rune Drops

I kept count of runes from Pul+ and the run that they dropped. Also i picked up 18 Lem Runes but i did not count them into the data. Here are the results From 10K Mephisto Runs

Pul (21 Total) – 433, 490, 841, 1149, 1512, 1582, 3098, 3621, 3693, 3965, 5512, 5648, 5840, 6673, 7501, 7731, 7833, 8213, 8362, 8662, 9041

Um (11 Total) – 178, 727, 866, 1789, 2366, 3506, 3511, 4105, 4265, 5142, 6675

Mal (15 Total) – 3091, 3464, 4085, 4204, 4351, 5337, 5668, 6008, 6094, 7566, 7803, 8251, 8634, 9151, 9889.

Ist (8 Total) – 192, 2382, 3095, 3456, 5764, 8166, 8927, 9153

Gul (10 Total) – 768, 1715, 3050, 5566, 7627, 8657, 8900, 9500, 9516, 1x unaccounted

Vex (8 Total) – 13, 5279, 5287, 5609, 6179, 6707, 9447, 9551

Ohm (5 Total) – 1797, 2001, 2754, 4534, 7424

Lo (11 Total) – 1350, 3640, 3833, 4175, 4548, 4801, 5961, 6554, 6655, 8282, 9786

Sur (8 Total) – 2658, 2677, 2746, 3616, 5406, 5890, 8200, 9014

Ber (1 Total) – 5465

Jah (3 Total) – 5276, 6445, 8465



Cham (2 Total) – 3267, 8550

103 Runes Total – 38 HRs and 65 Mid Runes

I don't know what happen to the 1x unaccounted Gul, I must of accidently either forgot to log it or deleted the run that had it saved. I have the Screenshot though and not the run # which is interesting Missing Screenshot for 2 Pul, 1 Um, and 1 Cham. I am surprised that i forgot to take a picture of the 2nd Cham rune. I been doing this for a while but i always forget to take a SS sometimes. I am going to adjust my strategy especially with organizing and hopefully it will be better for future challenges or runs.

Note : I have to make this clarification, the first 2000 runs were on P7 and the rest of the 8000 runs were on P3. I thought P7 would net me a lot more high runes but it did not really, only found 3 HR in the first 2K, maybe i was unlucky but i did find a lot of good items. Then i switched over to P3 and i found 35 in 8K runs. I end up doing each run at least 33% faster. It took me around 4 Hours to do 100 runs on P7 and it only took 2 and half hours on P3. So i was able to save more than 1 hour on P3 and do an additional 50 runs in the same time.

150 runs P3 4 hours compare to 100 runs P7 in 4 hours. I was foolish on thinking i was going to run 10K Mephisto on P7 only. I would of been able to do it but it would of taken me a lot longer to finish. I would most likely be still running Mephisto right now if i did it only P7. I guess i took the easy way out.

I think P3 is the most optimal player setting to run Mesphito to balance out rewards and speed. I did get 4 Arachnid Mesh in the first 2K runs on P7 and then found 8 more from the 8000 on P3. 1 Arachnid Mesh per 500 Runs on P7 and 1 in 1000 on P3. So the item drop rate is certainly better, even though the correlation might be 2X higher chance it is not for certain. I had around the same MF on both player setting 225 on P7 and 228 on P3 due to me leveling up and finding better war travs.


Item Drops

Here is a short video of my stash that i organized for the items i wanted to get during the 10K runs.

The 12x Arachnid, 11x War Travs and 11x Andy is what i wanted to drop the most beside the runes. The rest were bonuses. There were a lot of items that i found that i did not show like 10x Occy. I dropped more Vmagi then i kept. I would of liked see a Soj or 2 drop but i guess NM andy is still the best place to go for them.

Some interesting items i found are

  • GrandFather
  • Tal Armor
  • IK Armor
  • Gris Full Set. I have The Weapon, Helm and Shield in Screenshot but did not bother to pick up the armor.
  • NightWing Veil
  • Templar Might
  • BoneFlame from a weapon rack

Final Thoughts

Thank you for making it this far.

I tried to keep the words short and save everything for the final thoughts. I will upload the raw video files to my youtube channel . The whole project ate up 1TB of my HD space, i had to delete videos after uploading them for space. I may edit raw video files in the future to a condense video but that will take a while so i just want to get them up somewhere for now. These videos are mostly for myself to keep on record so they are quite boring.

Mepshito is a mix between Trav and LK. It will definitely take you longer to complete a run maybe 2-3x longer per run compare to 30 second LK or Travs unless you optimize it. Though If you want to do something else beside LK and Trav then running mesphito is decent. Of course the rune drops will vary and it depends on how you run it. I tried to full clear as many runs as I can while sometimes ignoring the stragglers. Though some of the normal minions dropped me a Sur and Lo. Killing the Council Monsters and Elite Packs are recommended along with Mephisto.

Overall i am pretty happy that i did these runs. 12x Arachnid one of them is what my trapsin is wearing a perfect 120% ED. 11x Andy Visage, now i can upgrade a few of my merc helms, have a few IAS/Fire Resist Jewels ready. I was really happy to get 3x Jah, though would of like to have gotten 1 more Ber but the Jah balanced it out. The Rune Drops were a lot better than what I expected especially on P3. It definitely average out to about 1 Mid-High Runes in 100 runs even though i went through at least 2 dry spells 1 which i got nothing for 700-800 runs.

Now I can make a few more runewords. I will level up a FireBall/Orb and give her a Phoenix Shield. Going to finally create my first Phoenix Shield. Hopefully this post will give people some insight on the possibilities of doing Mephisto, it is a much better place for runes than I expected. Of course rune drops will vary depending on the way a person farm Mephisto. I hope my organization skills was not too bad and that people will be able to use this data or just enjoy seeing a full stash of mid-high runes.

Thank you all again and it is time to make some runewords and a fireball orber sorc. Have fun everyone!
