    I had about 300 maps combined, of level 1 & 2 - too much storage even for the shard GM of THB.

    So, I commenced to sorting them by location....

    60 maps were on those snake & gator infested tropical islands, so those got donated without doing to the library.

    I did 40 more maps, before I donated the regs and completed maps I had at that point.

    That left 200 maps, and that's when I started keeping score.

    Let's see, from 200 level 1 & 2 maps (and their spawn)

    45253 mage and necromancy regs
    ~200 fertile dirt from Earth elementals
    over 1200 gems (based on the amount of weight the imbuer's gem bag increased)
    Enough loot that a brand new imbuer, going from the amount trained in Ter Mur, is now sitting at 70.0, with 135 more items remaining to unravel from the last set of maps.
    About 1300 collection points from just turning in complete maps, and about 30,000 more from the gold collected from the chests, the monsters, and selling all the looted scrolls (the only thing I DIDN'T take from the chests were the 1 GP sale value Exorcism scrolls, and the level 1-3 scrolls off the orc mages)

    A lot more free lockdowns in my house :)

    PS - for most of the maps, I was running around with my two pet vollems, training them. They both have anatomy & eval in the 60s now, tactics over 99, and med in the high 80s. It's gonna take a LOT of work to get their megery out of the 30s (they started in the 20s), but I am actually wondering if they are ready for a level 3 map.
     
  2. Cool. Are those player created or the SA code variety? I have been doing level 2's with a vollem and sometimes I use a summoned earth elemental in addition. It can handle the spawn mostly but I usually recall a screen away and then come back so they aren't all targeting me at the same time. Funny the vollem recalls with me but the summoned earth stays there.

    The SA ones - I gave both crystals from my upgraded accounts to my T-hunter.

    They can handle any spawn from level 1-2 without problem, and level 3s for the most part. The only trouble is with Ogre Lords, especially if the OL targets 1 of them, instead of me (if it targets me, both attack it from guarding, but they don't come to the aid of each other if targeted, without me giving a kill order). Ogre lords will beat them up fairly quickly, but if the character tanks the OL (DCI is your friend), the vollems will drop it just as easily.

    I've seen both go after the same lich, fire ele or gargoyle, and effectively 1-hit kill the target, if both have their attacks land.

    T-hunt, I mostly do the level 1s & 2s any more, because I can do 25-30 Level 1s in an hour, or 12-15 level 2s. Level 3s and higher take much longer, if you factor in the spawn, and it's been stated that level 1 chests use the same intensity chances as the stuff in a level 6. Some of my best items have come from a level 1 chest.

    Level 6s I do too, but as a group hunt, and let the others in the party take care of the spawn while I loot the chest, and we split the loot later

    i love the idea of two vollems :p but i have a couple of questions about them...

    2 pet slots each? and how do you heal/rez them? and are they better than EV's? (or EV's purely because when they die you just summon a new one)

    For heal I use close wounds; rez, I get a friend or go to the NPC. EVs are out of the question as I am a melee warrior T-hunter. No magery at all; no barding, no no taming. No Resist Spells either. The only "Casting" skill I have is Chivalry, and what Spellweaving spells a 0-skill human can cast after taking the quest. If I can get a focus with some other 0-skill people, Gift of renewal works great on the pets.

    I used to be able to solo level 6s, before the AW buff, and can still solo one if I get lucky enough to not get an AW.
