This thread details the crypt runs organised by the AU/NZ Diablo 3 community and is the culmination of a lot of work and contribution from various forum members in organisting the crypt run activity. I'm just simply the poor sap who's putting it into the one place - lol.

N.B. - Please be sure to read up and be familiar with how the AU/NZ community is doing crypt runs. There's defined roles to making a successful crypt run... and leecher isn't one of them ;-)

A bit of etiquette to those not in the know to help things go smoother:
a) Please do contribute to finding crypts and prepping before the actual run and not just hop from game to game. People are starting to get wind of players jumping from game to game without helping with the initial finding and preparation work. Please do your part so you party doesn't kick you or drop you from future games.
b) Chances are, you won't be reading this if you haven't read most of the above but please read up and know how the crypt run is carried before joining a game. Whilst we're a friendly bunch, having to explain every detail to a newbie after a long days work a few times a week can test one's patience.
c) Always fight as a team and not run off ahead alone. This isn't a race... clear each area together to maximise xp gain from the run and so the whole party can progress efficiently.
d) Feel free to add a crypt runner to your friends list but please understand that we we're not always online to run crypts so please don't bug players for crypt runs unless they've indicated that's what they're up to. (e.g. I'll only run a few nights per week as my schedule allows but I'm on more often than that to tend to the AH).
e) You can tell if there's a spot in a player's party by right clicking on their name in your friends list and seeing if the Request Invite option is blanked out. If so, the party is full so there's no point messaging them for an invite.
f) Generally, crypt runners will broadcast a message ingame (see their 'quote' on the friends list ) or via crypt channel to indicate that they're looking for/prepping a crypt and the MP level of the run. So please only request invites for a crypt run when the someone has found a crypt.
g) If you're joining a crypt run, please take note of the MP level. This isn't a carry. Make sure you can handle that MP level. (but then when we're working as a team, we can often handle another 1-2 MP levels higher than what we can do solo so use that as a guide)

I've got two lists here: Crypt Preppers and Woods Preppers. By nature of most of us having a 150k+dps character (except for yours truly), most crypt preppers can also prep woods. But crypt preppers also need players to prep the woods if they're prepping crypts, thus why we have a roster for woods preppers too.
Please respond in this forum if you want to be added to the roster and be sure to indicate which roster you want to be put on. If you can prep both the crypt and the woods, just put crypt prepper down.
Crypt Prepper Roster:
NickBaldyM#6414 (currently not doing crypts)
Apoptosius#2297 (EU server)
Woods Prepper Roster:
I think that ought to cover most things. Happy crypt runs everyone!
