I'm probably not going to be home today until 10-11PM your times. I can play then if you guys are still awake, but if not we'll just have to try another day.

I can play this late today. My problem is that I'm desperately needing a reboot to get rid of some zombie processes and clean up the adware. So we better make it for I can't wait with the game much longer. So Plague, you better reinstall Hamachi and all, and remember which character you're supposed to be playing :).

Solid win, but 4 jewel drops on 16 and not one of them is even remotely decent. Unbelieveable.

It's actually very believable. 98% of drops in this game are trash, and to expect to find something elite or even decent in an Ironman game, well, good luck with that. The chances are literally almost 0.

Back when I was doing 60+ Laz runs per day, playing anywhere from about 6-12 hrs per day, I was able to find roughly 1 Obs/Drag Zod every couple weeks. And thats with pretty decent luck. This should put it into persepctive for you on how rare high end loot, in particular jewelry, is.

Well we're not expecting anything ridiculous like Zodiacs or even Heavens, but we do expect at least 1 or 2 decent modifiers we can use, like Perfection or Wizardry. What did we get from 16?

Lapis Ring
Serpents Amulet
Ring of Titans
Amulet of Radiance
Garnet Amulet of Harmony (the only semi-decent drop)

Funny thing was we didn't see any jewels throughout 13-15, they were all on 16. We came out with two decent weapons (Knights/Giants Sabre and Platinum/Heavens LWB), but our best jewel is, believe it or not, a Moon Ring +6. That's our only dex-adding jewel. Pretty sad.

Compare it with the very first Ironman game that Plague and I did (which ended up being our triple crown). If I remember correctly, we came out of Normal with the following jewels.

Zodiac Ring +16
Crystal Amulet of the Heavens 46/13
Heavens Amulet +14
Ring of Perfection +21
Ring of Perfection +23
Gold Amulet 30%
Ring of Wizardry +24

And we later found a Jade Ring of the Stars 25/10 in Nightmare. The jewels we had in that run were NUTS. I sort of got snobbish and now I expect similar items from the vast majority of games. Maybe my bar is set too high but I don't think expecting at least one Perfection jewel is unreasonable.
