    I was surprised to see that no one had made this already, so I figure I'll start.

    We all know that the PvE Leaderboards track the top cumulative scores, but it doesn't have anything about single best runs.

    I just tried out Grimagstone with reds and pulled off an 12.6k point run and a time of 8:21 (Which I think is very good, but I don't have much to compare it to :p).

    So, what are some of the scores you've achieved?

    I have never done q1, only do q3. Usually avout 10-11k points. My fastest run is 5.55. I can do faster for sure. Ive seen others doing it as fast as 5.13

    And I only do q3 now since I started that dumb fight with one mage. Still leading on Grimmag with over 1.2M points. But bored of q3 as hell)

    Hopefully team ranks are coming soon, as well as q-totals so I can switch)

    I was doing a full clear in that run of 8:21. If I just went for pure speed, I'd probably get half the monsters, but 2/3rds of the time.

    I have no idea what is q1 in terms of time. But 8min full clear sounds fast.

    But you need to compare yourself to other DKs. Its the easiest with DK, and the fastest.

    Put it this way... you have 5:30 for the first map to get the "all monsters" achievement, and 4:40 for the second, and I did all monsters in both maps and the boss in less than those two times put together... yea, 8:21 is fast. :p

    This doesn't work. You need to make a pay to play leader board bragging thread AND a free to play leader board bragging thread. Pay to play will always "dominate" because they can gem up better and faster than the free to play.

    Not everyone is pay to play here. You can play for 4-5 years and have decent gems. And where do thr premium folks go? PayALittle2Play? They also need own ranking?

    And to be honest, every noob can farm q3 on normal without a single penny in game and glyph up fast.

    Yep... 4.5 years is enough that "F2P" me looks a lot like a P2W player ("F2P" referring to the fact that I've only recently started paying for premium and for about 3.5 years, I was full F2P.) It is amazing what time, patience, and working smart can do for a toon.

    Sorry but you showed your gems a few times and even after playing 5 years, with the incredible crappy gem drop rates, there is no way a player can craft multiple royal gems of one kind. (Been in game since beta/open beta so I do know all about gem drop rates) While you may not be a heavy P2P, you buy gems and with your gear set up/weapon damage THANKS to those big gems you have bought and crafted, YOUR bragging rights fall into P2P while a true F2P MAY have perfect and a few sacred gems compared to your build after 3 - 5 years. You said it yourself on page 73 on the Show what you have DK thread, "Gems make the difference". Your "bragging rights" can't compare to a true F2P who has never bought a single gem, or spent ander adding slots so there is a chance they are running with 2, 3 maybe a couple of 4 slot pieces too. And those players can't get close to a P2P timed run. I get it, people are proud of their toon's, of the work they put into them. But we all know spending money builds the perfect toon, a little or a lot, doesn't matter. Once you click the "buy andermant" button you are P2P. Even premium puts the player into P2P category, those cubes can give a player a nice boost in gem crafting when you're lucky enough to get them from the cubes. Inventory slots, it all matters in building a strong toon. If you're not spending at least a little to get extra inventory and locker spots then you can't farm like the P2P can.
    Good for you on your timed run there. I just don't see it as an achievable example for a true F2P.

    I hope BP quickly introduce the faster run in fatal mode killing at least 90% of the enemies and the boss.
    If one day BP introduce a system of rewards there will be the problem of rewarding the same user each time.
    Currently the leaderboard is too stupid.

    I have crafted 1.67 Royal Onyxes, 2+ Royal Rubies, 1.67 Royal Sapphires. I did use Joker gems. Inhave also bought additional Sapphires, true. And I also used premium, which sure is a benefit. But I only played my mage since 2014 (my oldest is dk), and I have had 8 months break.

    So I could easily see some ppl having 2+ Royal offensive gems of a kind being f2p for 5 years. I guess Traki does.

    There were a couple of gem reach events, besides the joker gems. One was 2015 Dragan, with the Fake Gnob who was dropping Normal or Polished gems. Some ppl farmed the hell out of it.

    And if you have premium, which sort of F2P (assuming some other games F2P version is subscription only), it is very doable. Takes lots of time, but doable. I will craft my second fair royal ruby soon, maybe next month.

    As for the slots, your claim is inaccurate. Ander isnt that hard to farm. Plus, with crafting 2.0, there is a way to craft 3-4 slots, not that hard, if you start with greens.

    Drops are not same for all players.
    I had no luck with unique items (fortunately I never needed them) ... but I have always had exceptional gem drops. You can even search the forum where I have posts of drops with sapphires, rubies ... and even flawless offensive and defensive gems.
    Everyone is playing Q3 ... I never liked Q3 (before and after R155) I play other maps ... maybe that is why my gem drops are so good.
    I have 5 royal sapphires and 4 royal+ 1 sacred rubies.
    All of them crafted with Jokers.
    These are the gems I am using:

    I haven't bought a single gem since R155 (when I say bought i mean bought with andermant from farm) since i don't play the arena I have no reason to upgrade my gems. And I have a lot of andermant collected from farming in the past 1,5 years ... a lot like 7 digit number :p
    I will spend them only and only if there is another 50% gem sale ... if not ... i will just keep stashing them.
    Before R155 my main andermant income was leveling characters to level 40-45 and playing only quests. (so yeah I know the fastest way to level up a character if anyone had doubt about my tips in those threads)
    After R155 PW is more rewarding and you can collect 3-6K andermant per day.

    I'm really over this, I forgot about the player base who live in game 24/7. Those who share accounts so their toons are always on. I look at this game as a human being with a real life where the monotony of farmville gets old real fast. I also forgot about the twink toons who get helped along by the same players max lvl toon or others. Because the only way people are farming so much and getting so much is IF they are here at least 12 hrs a day or sharing your accounts. But that's the choice the DSO lifers make although I have no clue how one can afford to pay rent or buy food, utilities etc. But then I guess that is none of my business so good for all of those who live here.
    As far as Traki goes, well thanks to the Wiki which is awesome by the way, I know his toon on TS gets a lot of free stuff but have to honestly say I doubt that they are not giving your live server accts anything. But that's fine, if anyone deserves a bunch of stuff from DSO it's Trakilaki.
    For me, if I get obsessed over leaderboards and the need to see them, I could start a lvl 1 toon on every server and gaze with awe at the exploits of the current leaders on those servers. But I doubt I would ever do that. It's hard enough caring about logging on to play anymore knowing that all there is to do is farm. I don't think I've ever checked the leaderboards on Tegan because it's just useless lag creating fluff in my opinion.
    So good job B on your timed run. A true F2P could never compete really anyway. Red ess doesn't drop and a fast fatal run like that equipping reds is a must.
    Moving on now.

    Dude, you are being rude now. And accusing someone for breaking the game rules without a proof deserves a forum ban.

    Neither traki, baragain or myself live in this game. I dont play on weekends at all, for example, and who you are to blame someone. If you cant be creative to come up with some good strategy to glyph up or gem up, its you issue. It doesnt mean everyone else is so uncreative too.
