17 quick loot runs.
One freaking totem.
I guess I should have waited for 3x materials--that way, instead of needing 14 more totems to max out the epic, I'd only need 12 more. Silly me.
Overheard at the DB watering hole:
ZURK: Silence! Idiot! I kill you!*
PONTIFEX MORTIS: (chuckles) Yeah, like that's gonna stop me.
