1.11 SPF HC Ladder

Welcome to the first 1.11 SPF HC Ladder thread. The 1.11 Ladder website is www.spfladder.com. Please check that site for the most updated rules.

If you want to participate in this ladder, read the rules and post your character's info in this thread.

Here are the rules for the 1.11 SPF HC Ladder:
  1. Characters must be Hardcore characters.
  2. You may not resurrect a dead player, no matter what caused the death.
  3. You will play with honor, and will not use ESC when facing certain death.
  4. Looting in MP games is allowed, though self-looting by using ATMA is absolutely prohibited. Once the char is dead, those items are lost.
  5. The RTB 1.11 RWM may be used. Characters using this mod (or non-mod users who trade or MP with the mod users) must indicate their status as RWM users. This is the only mod allowed for ladder play.
  6. All ladder characters must have been started in 1.11.
  7. Ladder characters can only play with other ladder chars, and trade/use items that were found by ladders chars only, with the exception in the next rule.
  8. Ladder characters may participate in PvP games where no questing or exp is being gained, and no items are taken from the game.
  9. Partied players in MP games must be within 10 levels and 1 Act of each other. (The level limit does not apply if the partied characters in the MP game have all beat hell difficulty.)
  10. You can play solely SP, solely MP or both.
  11. There are no time restrictions, and no "seasons", so you can play at your own pace.
  12. You may create and play as many chars as you wish.
  13. You can mule and twink your chars as you wish, though only with items found by you, or other ladder chars.
  14. You may use whichever players settings, as well as complete or skip any quests that you like
  15. Trading will be done in the trade forum. Your post title should indicate the type of trade.
    • [HCL1.11] = Hardcore Ladder
    • [HCL1.11R] = Hardcore Ladder (using RWM or has traded with 1.11HCL-RWM players.)
  16. PK'ing of any kind is strictly-prohibited, and by using such tactics, you will get yourself permanently banned from the ladder.
  17. New players wishing to join the ladder who already have a previously created character must be created after August 1, 2005, meet all the rules in this laddder and not exceed character level 50. Characters over level 50 may be added to the ladder if they get approval of 3 active ladder participants. (Active participants are those who have updated their characters in the last 2 months.) The ladder administrator has the final say on late additions, however.
  18. Note that you can be in a tournament with your character as well as in this ladder provided that you use this set of rules. However you may use a stricter set of rules as long as none of it contradict with the SPF 1.11 ladder rules (eg. Septivarate).

Well, I will start things off. Here are my first HC 1.11 characters.
hi,

I'm new to the SPF ladder and would like to join the HC ladder

My char is a lvl 23 sorceress IcyManipulator in act III Great Marsh (meteorb)
I'm not using any mods

greetz
Count me too, please!

It is always nice “2 b t3h nr. 1†druid at ladder (in spite that I’m alone druid on the ladder :D ).

Code:
Name          Level  Class  Build               Progress    RWM  Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Green_Dragon  16     Druid  Werebear            Act 1 Norm   N   AQT4
If I've ruined this I apologize. My 2nd or 3rd attempt. BTW, my characters are nekkid. Does that warrant 30 lvl handicap :p
I hope you have the links up soon Cattleya and thanks for the thread :)

- Jas :howdy:
Jeez, I hope I did that right. I will be making more characters, but thats enough for now.

Close enough :p

BTW The name was chosen in haste to join some friends for some untwinked 1.11 HC play. Would there be any objection to using atma to renamer her once I can think of somthing fitting?

Also one thing missing from the table is Forum member's name... I'd add it, but I've already fixed everything else :p
To stop WoL to be the top druid I will give him some competition

I will make a Hunter druid in HC and see how far he comes, the name will be:

***************
Furry_Ploppy
lvl 1
Rouge Encampment
RWM
***************

Will start right away, good luck everyone

I was thinking that everyone would just post their own table with their own characters like people did in the 1.10 thread, so that's my my original didn't have my forum name. I will try to get the manual version of the ladder up on the website this weekend, but if people want to add the forum name to the table and keep updating the whole thing in this thread, that's fine too. :)
FFS I shoule pay more attention then eh :D

Anyways SPL HC should be much smaller than any other list.... Oh well just play it by ear I guess :p

My bad
What exactly is Ladder play? Is it some sort of contest? If so, how are the players ranked? I'm confused here.

It's for people who want to start over with a new economy in 1.11. So, all of the characters and items are purely 1.11. (Nothing taken from earlier versions.) There is some friendly compitition to get to the highest level mixed in as well. It is someone like a Battle.net ladder season, although our playstyle varies slightly from B.net. :)

So, if you want to start over fresh in 1.11 and have a community to trade/MP with that are following a common set of rules, start up a character and join us. (There is also a SC ladder as well, the only difference is HC vs. SC characters.)

You might want to hunt down the 1.10 Ladder thread to get a better idea of what the ladder is about. The website for the 1.10 ladder is here:

http://shadofax.gen.nz/diabloii/index.php

The 1.11 website isn't nearly as fancy, but I've got my php and MySQL books in the mail, so hopefully I can get it caught up with the 1.10 website in the next couple of months.
I've been putting off joining this or saying anything since I cant start putting in good time until September 1st... but I cant help it. I'm a hardcore junkie.

- Scossa, the Tesladin, level 1, using the RWM.

I expect him to quickly become the highest paladin on the ladder once I get back to a D2 comp =)
I've been working on the website, and it I've been trying to figure out the best way to do things. I've realized that manually updating a table for the ladder will probably drive me insane. (I do still actually need time to play. :D ) So, the best solution is to get an updating feature up running pronto. The problem is I've got a learning curve to contend with. I won't know until I dive in how hard it will be (and therefor how long it will take.) What this means is that I won't be putting up the actual ladder on the website for a while.

For the time being then, let's keep the actual ladder in the thread. Thanks for being patient!

Here are the instructions for updating your characters and dealing with the code tags.

Note: "Tags" are instructions to the forum board on how to format your text. The surround the text they are supposed to format. [tag]Here is what I am formatting.[/tag] The "code" tag uses a monospace font and allows you to use spaces to line up columns of text.

(1) Reply to the last person whose post contains the ladder table.
(2) Remove the "quote" tags. [highlight]Important! [/highlight] If you don't do this, the next person will not be able to use your post to update the table.
(3) Add in/update your information. It can be very useful to use a monospaced font so that you can actually see how things line up. I copy the text in the code tags in to a text program, set the font for a mono-spaced font (like Courior New) and then I can see where I need to add and delete spaces. Don't use tabs to line up text, as your text editor may treat them differently from the forums.
(4) Make sure to renumber any rankings that have changed.
(5) Use preview to make sure it looks okay. Add/remove spaces as necessary to get things to line up.
(6) Hit submit and you are done!
I'm a bit hesitant in putting this in Cattleya. I don't want to ruin all the hard work you have put into this.

- Jas :howdy:
Today I killed my last remaining TWD tourney char (FE). So this was a good time to update to 1.11 and start new HC chars. The first ones are 2 MF chars to get more items and a Berzerker for the fun of it.
Got my hunter druid to the Outer Cloister and he is doing very well at this moment.

Nothing extraordianary happened position myself behind my summons and let them do the killing sometimes I help them out and shooting some arrows in the pack with my hunter bow

updated my ranking :) won't have time to play next days :(

edit: almost screwed the ranking :) everything ok now :cool:

greets
Fixed Shakoke’s mess and reflected my hopeless attempts to keep my Druid above DX’s. :D
thanks, I just saw what I did :p

Trying my hand at some countess running now...
My druid will prolly stop here for today. Have killed both Andy and Radament and he have reached level 20.

Good Luck all

DX
My necro's are cruising along. Already managed to shop a +3 bonespear wand with 2 open sockets in it! WooT 👍

The summoner is working on gathering Pgems to MF NM Meph. I will be playing damn near non-stop today and tomorrow. Good luck all and stay safe!

P.S. Sorry I suck so bad at updating this list.

Read this post in this thread for instructions on how to update the list. :eek:
Leveled abit and found some useful stuff :)
Well, I think I am our HC ladders first casualty. My summoner died to a stairtrap while trying to gather runes from the countess. Level 43 when he died. My Bonemancer is still sailing along. I just finished the NM council.

I have been gathering some items, nothing great, but a few tasties like these:
Harpoonist's Grand Charm
Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
Required Level: 42
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 50
Fingerprint: 0x8eb1dcdb
+1 to Javelin and Spear Skills (Amazon Only)

Nagelring
Ring
Required Level: 7
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 45
Fingerprint: 0xd2a28d4d
+58 to Attack Rating
Magic Damage Reduced by 3
Attacker Takes Damage of 3
30% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

@ Cattleya I popped a chest in LK and found a Hexfire. Not sure what kind of Enchantress you are building but its yours for an email if you want it.
@ Ron. I'm sorry to see UnholyGeneral died :( Thankfully you still have your Bonemancer. Good luck with him :)

- Jas :howdy:
Thanks man. I was playing very poorly. I shopped a +3 Bonespear wand for my Bonemancer, then I found a +3 Bonespear head with 2 sockets in it already. I went NUTS trying to scrape up the runes for White and Rhyme. I wasn't really ready to do countess runs with that summoner, but impatience whooped my butt again!

The Bonemancer went and got his own damn runes, so he is flying now. I just dinged 60 doing shenk/eld runs. I have around 200ish MF right now. Here is what my Summoner died for anyway:

Rhyme
Unraveller Head
'ShaelEth'
Defense: 9
Chance to Block: 48%
Smite Damage: 0 to 0
Durability: 20 of 20
(Necromancer Only)
Required Strength: 18
Required Level: 29
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 50
Fingerprint: 0x2431d077
+20% Increased Chance of Blocking
Regenerate Mana 15%
All Resistances +25
Adds 25-50 poison damage over 4 seconds
50% Extra Gold from Monsters
25% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items
40% Faster Block Rate
+3 to Bone Spear (Necromancer Only)
Cannot Be Frozen
Socketed (2: 2 used)

White
Bone Wand
'DolIo'
One-Hand Damage: 3 to 7
Durability: 15 of 15
Required Level: 35
Staff Class - Fast Attack Speed
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 20
Fingerprint: 0x67a24f82
+10 to Vitality
+13 to Mana
Magic Damage Reduced by 4
20% Faster Cast Rate
+3 to Bone Armor (Necromancer Only)
+1 to Golem Mastery (Necromancer Only)
+2 to Bone Spear (Necromancer Only)
+3 to Bone Spear (Necromancer Only)
+4 to Skeleton Mastery (Necromancer Only)
Hit Causes Monster to Flee 25%
150% Damage to Undead
+3 to Poison and Bone Skills (Necromancer Only)
Socketed (2: 2 used)

I got pretty lucky so far. Frostburns from NM Act 4, a few good +mana charms, even a 4 and 5 % MFSC. Well, back to work! :lol:
I don't see how you fellas are making sorcs... my sorc dies ALL THE TIME. She's such a pansy :) I guess you guys are just l33t players.
Just whacked NM Baal at level 65. The Ancients went down like punks to my level 32 Bonespear. My resists are a little too low for my tastes, but as long as I don't hit gloams I'm OK. Look at this hat Pindle gave me.

Cruel Crest
Circlet
Defense: 26
Durability: 105 of 105
Required Level: 40
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 66
Fingerprint: 0x76afc77f
+26% Enhanced Damage
All Resistances +12
5% Mana stolen per hit
30% Faster Run/Walk
20% Faster Cast Rate
+1 to Shape-Shifting Skills (Druid Only)

Look at that durability! I just wish the skills were different. Heck, all my old hat had was +18 resist all. My Bonemage likes the FCR and FRW on it a lot.

I can't start out with a sorc either man. When I get some gear saved up I will make one, but for now I am playing something safer. You don't get too much safer than my Bony Guy. Not much coming through a level 24ish Bonewall. (cept javalins chucked by those cat dudes, and when they are might enchanted, they hurt lots!) My only near pants-peeing moment so far was in act 4 NM. The seal boss on the east side (infector of souls?) was safely inside the bonewall getting hammered by bonespear, then he teleported right next to me. Mucho Sucko! I just teleported inside the bonewall where he was supposed to be.

Stay Safe guys!
Played quite a few hours today, so here is my update.
Hey guys, you kicked me out of the ladder :confused:
Played Lars a bit. It is beginning to go slow. The time till I get Berzerk (Lvl 30) will be a long wait. And I can't use it until my War Cry is at a decent lvl... Last time I did switch to Berzerk at lvl 40.
At the ripe age of 48 my first Destroyer (NotDeadYet_OtN) has fallen :'(

The tallon trapper left was surounded and left manaless by 2 Mana burn uniques. 4 big purples latter and a second after that it was all over. She'd just killed the smith in NM
Well, that takes care of the top three spots on the ladder. Sorry about your sin Mankey. UnholyBoner got derailed by some freak-show in Act 2 Hell. There were at least two boss packs, I didn't even get a chance to see what mods they were running. A spear came from what seemed like off the screen and took my Red bulb to a sliver. Before I could hit a full purple, I got the deeds screen. Yuk. Oh well, I will add my new characters to the ladder later tonight. I will take things a little slower from now on. All I did was rush to my death. :D At least I had just muled off all the loot I found before I took the dirt nap. Just lost the cool circlet and perfect nagel. Well, now that I think about it, I lost most of my MF stuff, except the Ptopaz armor. And my precious White and Rhyme.

Stay safe everyone and good luck!
So first of all, just wondering if you really want to keep everyone in one table Cat, as that will make for long posts throughout, or is that just till you get the site fully functional?

Secondly, I've decided that I will do my own septavirate style for my 1.11 Chars:
I'm going to start 7 chars, one of each class. This group of seven will share one stash for runes, gems and class specific items, but for all other items they will be untwinked. Secondly, none of them will start the next difficulty level until they have all finished the previous. I will continue with the same group until all are dead or guardians.

So, here are my chars, I have only started one, but I'll get to the rest soon enough. I'll add them to the table later. I've decided not to use the realms only runewords, because when I look at them I realize they basically fall into two categories for me, either unachievable or overpowered.

It is a temporary measure until I get the site fully functional. Right now I am looking at the options, and that will determine the timeline. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later. :)
After much goading. I'm back. Made my way to act 4 normal in one sitting 👏 Just 2 more prime evils and I'll be back to where I left off :p

Right then. Stay safe everyone.
Well i'm in, deleted my old chars and stash and have started afresh. My first 1.11 char is gonna be Cardea, the FO/CL sorc. Those prime evils better watch out!

HAPPY HUNTING EVERYONE! 👍

EDIT: screwed up the table :confused: hope its ok now
It looks like Hell and late NM are really taking a toll on the higher chars... I'll have to watch out for that when I finally get around to playing Turd.
Yeah, late NM and Hell were a little rough. I am trying to get back into HC mode. When I play SC, I still try not to die, but you can't help but think that even if you do, it's not the end.

HC being the one shot deal that it is requires a little more attention to detail. I think my downfall in both cases was item finding. In both cases, I was wearing MF gear in spots that should have held resist/dam reduction gear. I will not be making that mistake again. I can't believe I made it twice already. I will be remaking my bone necro, and I have a sorc fooling around in act 3 right now. I will also spend some time MFing NM meph to get some better gear before I head into hell difficulty. The gear I had on my bonemancer was pathetic. The wand and shield were endgame. Nothing wrong with my killing power at all, but my resists were around -30. Yikes.

Good luck everyone and Stay Safe!
Hope you don't mind that I just drop in. :D

Edit: Okay, just a little detail on my assassin.

The final build will be as many lightning skills maxed as possible along with fire blast and death sentry for LIs.

Act 1 was conquered with a mix of fire blast and charged bolt sentry. Act 2 was more tricky and I had to rely mainly on my mercenary for raw damage. Duriel was a pain because like the idiot I am, I forgot to run the countess for the stealth runes. It involved a lot of running around, 2 visits to town, shadow and trap casting.

I started investing heavily in lightning sentry once I was in act 3. Mephisto was moat-tricked to death with traps. The main problems in act 4 were the damned and storm casters, both of which were highly resistant to my lightning traps. Big D took a while to take down, but he wasn't that tough. Even dropped me a goldwrap.

After having 10 points in it, LS is really starting to kick butt in act 5. Hordes of enslaved and imps have been thoroughly barbequed to a crisp. Having scored a Sol rune in act 4 and getting the ral-ort-tal runes, I made a Lore helm. Now I only need 9 more +skills. :uhhuh:
Been running Baal in normal for an hour or two tonight. I was planning Meteorb, but decided to make a strong MF character first. I do Baal's minions and Baal very fast on Players8 right now. Blizzard and Ice Blast are maxed out, and I am adding points to Cold Mastery right now.
I have finished Normal tomorrow. Look at last post(s) of the A Quick Tournament 4 thread for details.
The ancients proved to be no match for lightning sentries, and normal Baal was everything except hard. I stood just out or range of his mana rift spell and laid trap after trap until he dropped. Up to the countess right now, running her a few times for a shael so I can finally make my Rhyme shield. Hoping for a Lem from hellforge (if I get there) so I can make Treachery. :D
Played Lars through the remainder of Act 2 and he is now resting on the Flayer Jungle WP. I hope to get to Berzek soon.
Well I now have made 2 destroyers 👏 Lets see how far into NM I make it this time :rolleyes:

Although I think I'll stay in normal for a little while longer this time :D
Ripped through Acts 1-3 in NM. Doing a few Mephy runs right now. I had good luck in Act 3, I picked up a cruddy Manald (4%), Shadow skiller, several decent rare rings. NM Duriel game me a Dwarfstar, and a few useful items from Meph. Silks of the Victor, Nats Hat...even a TC3 Pluckeye!

I am going to run meph a few more times before I move on to Act 4. Good luck everyone!
Just a small update, time to visit the countess some.
After months of not playing I've decided this would be a good way to start up again. I've always enjoyed hc so this should be really fun. I'll be playing a fury wolf since that is my favorite build. My goal is to atleast be the number one druid on the ladder. All I have to do now is not die. Wish me luck.
Just entered Nightmare :)
Just completed act 1, had no major problems apart from coldcrow who was a b****, had to use a whole belt of healing potions. Andarial was a breeze, static is one helluva skill! :D
I'm kinda disappointed that i have had no uniques or set items thus far, my last char through act 1 norm got 4 uniques and 3 sets... i guess he was just lucky.
I'll post my next update when duriel is dead, til then HAPPY HUNTING and remember to watch that red bulb closely! 👍
Just doing NM Baal runs, and a little MFing thrown in. Found a crappy but useful 21% Vipermagi, 8% Resist all Jewel and a few other nice items. I am about to go on vacation for a few weeks, so I won't be playing at all, but I'll see you guys when I get back. Stay Safe!
Ill join. My character will be a Volcano///summon druid

(hope i didnt mess up the chart :p)

Updated. Got to act 2 and passed radament. Now I'm going to have to face oh-so-many beetles. Luckily my lightning resist is maxed.
Rescued the Barbs in Act V. I'm currently looking for a better weapon for Lars.
Just killed Diablo... and damn him, what a fight x.x
Destroyer x 2 👏
Since my last update I have passed Act 1, 2, 3 and 4 of Nightmare difficulty. All the way was relatively easy, save Chaos Sanctuary. It was real Nightmare. I could not fight in my bear form, because of Iron Maiden danger, so I missed a lot of bear’s life and fire claws’ damage. All I could do to help my rogue merc kill demons is to keep them from regeneration with poison vine and to cast 600 damage fissure. However eventually all Oblivion Knights was dead and we spawned Diablo. He was tough only at the beginning of the battle until I cast Lower Resistance on him and found the safe spot next to him.

Now I’m standing in Harrogath, going to level up to 70+ before trying Ancients, WSK and The Lord of Destruction.
Would someone be kind enough to add my details on please.
Nude Jude, skellimancer, level 56 in act NM.
I'd do it myself but I've been to a party and have a few too many and I know I will surley bugger it up. :D
Thanks and *hugs*

- Jas :howdy:
Thank you for that AndiDi :)
Good luck to everyone and please take care.

- Jas :howdy:
Yes NotDeadYet_OtN's death has been avenged :D!

And both chars are now upto act 2 NM.
Hello SP forumers, I'm back to playing D2 after near 1 year pause. And of cource I'll join the HC Ladder :)

I've lost a Berserker in 1.10 due to FE bug, so now let's try to bring one till the end.
Good luck to everyone!
Got to act 4 but I'm afraid of big D
Went with Lars throught Act V up the Worldstone Keep WP. He found a Bonesnap in the Frozen Tundra. So he really kicked the Ancients around. It took him less than 1 minute to kill them all.

Me too. I lost mine at level 80 :( in the Durance Level 3.
Careful Ron, my Necro is after your Sorcie :D

- Jas :howdy:
Added my frenzy barb for AQT into it.

-Slayer
I decided not to do a Fishymancer necro, as I already Pat'd mine in SC. Gonna live life on the edge and do a Zerker.

EDIT

Don't play your HC character after you drank a bunch of alcohol. He will be avenged by Turd_II
I cleaned up for you abarlament :)
Good luck with Turd_II :D

- Jas :howdy:
I got to Hell. :teeth:
I posted longer report in the AQT4 tread.
Killed Baal and ventured into Act I NM. Lars is now on official Countess running duty. He already found a SOL to upgrade his Bonesnap. Now he only needs another SOL to make Inisght for the Merc and a SHAEL to speed to that Bonesnap.
Jude has finally killed NM Mephie and is now trying to get a decent DOH map for some MF.

Kicked my way through acts 2-4 today. Resting at shenks for a little while :)
I decided to get rid off all my stashes and start from scratch so Okami is my only character atm. I guess I'll start my Septavirate now. My next char will be a MA assa or some pally build.

Act1 was pretty easy. Corpsfire put up the toughest fight. I did the whole thing on p4 and will probably keep it that way. p8 will take to long but I still want to level at a somewhat quick rate.

Act2 was way more interesting. I accidentally put it on P8 and didn't notice until I got to the maggot lair. It had been 20 mins and I still hadn't made it to level 2. Every beetle was a challenge and I was going to stop playing. Then I checked the player seting and changed it to one just to get through. At level 22 I gambled a rare maul for mysel and a scythe with ctc amp on it for my merc(blessed aim) At the arcane sanctuary the summoner was on the multi level path(the last one I checked) Since he has almost no health I ran up to him and attacked. I was out of the blessed aim radius and I just kept missing and he kept launching glacial spikes. He almost killed me but I tp'ed out in time. Then comes Duriel. I think for the first time in my entire D2 gaming experience I found the orifice in less than ten seconds. It was just right there. I had the staff on weapon switch so I dropped it in and went to fight little D. He was taking no damage at all. I had to tp out cause my merc and sage were both dead. I checked to see how much damage I was doing and it said something like 1-6. I hit "w" and proceeded to kick his but.

I'll do act3 tomorrow on p1 because I hate that act.

Items of note:
Pluckeye: Blood Raven
Blood Crescent: Flying scimitar
Skewer of Krintiz: Duriel
Civerb's Ward: Duriel
After enough rest from battle with NM Ancients, Nihlathak, Lister&Co and Baal I started my journeys in Hell. Fire Immune monsters are my greatest problem so far. I feel I could not go farther until I equip and train my hireling enough to be able to kill most hell fire immunes at least at players1 mode.

Now I’m doing Mausoleum runs, -- nice quit plaice, lots of valuable items, good experience gain, relatively easy to kill monsters.

Fire Enchanted bosses caused me many troubles until because I was afraid to take their explosion in Hell difficulty HC. However eventually I found a way to deal with them. If you played druids before then you know that they cannot die shifted, -- if you take too much damage you get de-shifted to human form with single life point. So I tested single FE boss and survived. With 60+% fire resistance I take only about 200 damage on FE explosion, not much to afraid.

Unfortunately I still meet dangerous monsters, that I cannot handle: LE+(one of FE, CE, Spectral), LE+Conviction, Extra Strong+(one of Fanaticism, Might), Cursed+Extra Strong, and so on. Sometimes my rogue can kill them for me, sometimes I can park them in the far room, but most frequently I had to teleport to town and save&exit. :(

Lars did Act I and the outdoor half of Act II. He has now the Staff. He now does up to 2.5k Damage after I have hired a Might merc for him and upgraded the Bonesnap to exceptional. I although made an Insight Partizan for the Merc. All my mana problems are now gone (120 Mana and Lvl21 Warcry are not a good combination).
Good luck to all other and don't die.
Well after some absence from the ladder it was time to bring out my hunterdruid, but looks like he is leaning towards a Volcano hunter, otherwise I will have a very hard time later in the game but for now he is using his small wolves and Ravens to kill and the merc helps alot aswell. He have almost cleaned out the entire act2 and maybe he will hopefully kill duriel today or maybe I will wait until tomorrow, will prolly need some sleep tonight.

He have reached lvl 24 and is doing really well, was lucky and found Cleglaws gloves which gives me knockback and the monsters a slowed and that made some improvement.

Well that's it for now

sorry for the losses that have occured and congratz to the destroyers and the destroyers and conquorers

Have fun and be careful

Edit: did some editing to the Rank column which was in a big mess :D

DX
Moved Lars up to the Lower Kurast WP. Now that Berzerk is maxed I am working on Battle Orders. After that I will max Shout. Shout only synergises with Berzerk, but helps extend the length of my warcrys a lot and it enables the merc to tank some more. Which is good because I need the Mercs Meditation-Aura really bad to solve my mana problems.
Yes I know that I said that I would go to bed but hey, I can sleep when I'm dead playing was way to fun today. And my little furry friend got all the way and killed Mephisto, act3 was a total breeze but I did chicken out and killed meph on players1 :D .

Volcano and my tanks took care of both him and Duriel. He will be ready tomorrow to enter act4 and begin his journey to the CS and kill big daddy. He is actually really fun to play and I have some hopes of atleast get him to conquorer, hell will prolly be hell for him but that's why it's called hell isn't it.

All I need is half a level and Grizzly will be available for him, but I will only put one point there at the beginning and continue pumping Volcano instead. Have given up the idea of using a bow for now, he is using Sander's Superstition and Milabregas Orb. Have actuallt found some low-level set and unique today.

Well that's it for today now I will get to bed, promise :D

Have fun and be careful

Preparing for Baal right now, doing shenk / eldritch runs for some better levels. Poison Explosion damage just went over 1.1k =). Once I reach level 45 will do a few mephisto/andy/coldcrow runs for some tarnhem or gull, walking around with 30% mf isn't too cool =/
Still running Mausoleum. Recent finds include this:

Brimstone Thirst
Colossus Voulge
Two-Hand Damage: 60 to 601
Durability: 26 of 26
Required Dexterity: 45
Required Strength: 200
Required Level: 48
Polearm Class - Slow Attack Speed

+6 poison damage over 2 seconds
5% Chance to cast Level 3 Lightning on attack
Ethereal (Cannot be Repaired)

— Klaudia — I said — You were good mercenary, but I need to hire new Might aura paladin to handle fire immunities with this stick.
— Than you — she answered — you was good master. Just remember, The Warrior is not the one, who can fight, but who knows that Death always awaits him and who always accepts own decisions without doubts and regrets.
And two warriors came back together into honorable battle in complete silence.

Soon after that we found this.
My little druid is now a Destroyer and have converted to be a pure Fire/Summoner druid, have wasted 2 points in HoW otherwise it's perfect.

Killing Baal wasnt a problem took awhile to kill him with my Volcano though. His minions wasnt a problem until the last pack which I had to park outside, they were to strong to take care of.

Will do some more baalruns before I get to NM

Have fun and be careful

DX
Jude was doing NM Mephisto runs and wasn't taking particular notice. After you do a few runs they tend to just blend in together.
Mephie decided to throw one of his lightning fits. The first one he threw in ages and we weren't looking. "Deeds" again. One day I will get this right.
Good luck to everyone and be careful.

*runs off to make another character*

- Jas :howdy:
Take my condolences, seige. Mephisto’s charged bolts are tough. I guess during the MF runs you where low at lightning resistance, don’t you? Good luck with the next char. I hope we’ll see him higher at the ladder soon!

A also had my first de-shift upon near-death yesterday. Very scary! Should be more careful.

Speaking on topic, I got another level, so I’m now at character level 80.
Ok, after reading about asdfgah's Balrog WW barb I couldn't resist making one :D.

Im thinking about not using RWM. Maybe I switch later to RWM if I ever get the runes for Oath. It's that ok with the rules?

Mhhhh nvm, even if I don't use it atm I will mark him as using it so I dont break the rules ^^.
Damn that sucks seige. One day! ;)

Updated WoL to 80, and myself to 65... Sitting pretty on the steps to the ancients.

That's never happened before but playing HC you should expect something like that :)
Yes, my res are horrible -30 in fact :D

Hopefully this will be the one that will do it for us.
Look forward to catching you all soon.

Good luck and be careful.

- Jas :howdy:
Made huge progress with Lars. He is now in Act I HELL. Still doing great. His resists worry me a little bit.
Next think to do is running the countess. I need the runes for Smoke and Obedience, a Thresher for Obedience, a Dusk Shroud or Wire Fleece for Smoke and finding a Raven Frost would be nice too...

- Andi
Decided to start a HC Concentration Barbarian for the ladder about a week ago. I am not that good at other characters so I chose this to start my 1.11 HC.
Name: BreakinThrough lvl 50
Class: Barbarian

Now sitting in act 1 Nightmare after lvling to 50 from normal Baal runs! Found some good stuff for my merc (unique pike, and Duskdeep)
Also early on my new sorc found bloodfist and aldurs rythum, so he is doing pretty good at the moment.

If someone could add him on the list that'd be great, thanks!

I won't be using RWM since the only runeword I want is stone.
Just fried Duriel's humongous buttocks. Guess I shouldn't have left the game on p8, since I used up all of my 8 mana potions and 5 of my health potions on the belt. Mercenary died in under 5 seconds. :rolleyes:
I’m completing Hell difficulty quests in act 1 now. See my longer report in the A Quick Tournament 4 thread for details, if you care. :)
Mephy dropped a Tal's mask for my mercenary, so I won't beat him up too much. ;)

Diablo died a horrible death. :evil:

I'll try my best to avoid the city of the damned in hell, once in nightmare is enough. All those lightning immunes... my mercenary was surrounded by an entire army of them at one time and died in roughly half a second. Luckily for me, there were some non-LIs there, so I CoS'ed, fried them, and then laid down some death sentries. What followed was a carnage of epic proportions.

BreakinThrough cruised through act 1 without a problem, only lvling up once. Then went and did act2 at a faster pace just grabbing wps and clearing the needed areas, then cleared the arcane sanctuary and deafeted duriel at p4. Duriel had a 9% chance to hit, and I had a 82% chance to hit, plus battle cry, which made me hit about everytime.

So now he is sitting in act 3 at lvl 54. I'll doing more full clears in act 3 planning on getting to 60+ lvl for this act.
Last update for the next few days since I'm going back to playing KO. The Ancients were a cakewalk on p1. Talic was actually stunlocked by my lightning sentries (took all of 2 seconds for him to lose 1/3 of his hp). After about 20 seconds, Madawc was the only one left standing since he's highly resistant to lightning. I threw some fire bombs at him. GG.

Baal, on the other hand, was 200% pain in the *** (yeah, his clone) because I forgot to switch down to p1 for him. Not that his attacks hurt or anything, but the entire fight lasted well over 10 minutes with about 12 blue potions down the throat.

So I decided to start hell at level 73 with 22 lightning resist, 8 fire resist, and negatives on the other two. Luckily for me, I haven't been hit by anything bigger than a shaman's fire ball (~50 damage), but may decide to go back and do some baal runs later. Currently standing at the Stony Field waypoint. Switching down to p1 for hell just so my 1.4k fire blast can kill things. :D

P.S. Ron, want a staff for Memory/Insight?

Gnarled Staff
Two-Hand Damage: 4 to 12
Durability: 31 of 35
Required Level: 30
Staff Class - Slow Attack Speed
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 68
Fingerprint: 0xa1a6e023
+3 to Blizzard (Sorceress Only)
+1 to Cold Mastery (Sorceress Only)
+1 to Teleport (Sorceress Only)
150% Damage to Undead

P.S.S. Yes, it would be free since I'm not using RWM.
update for IcyManipulator. I expected some problems with Diablo and the ancients but it went fluently. Now I'm doing some baalruns and mephruns in between.
BreakinThrough made it to act 4 now he is at lvl 58, I haven't decided if I will go run meph for better gear or not. But may not be able to play till the weekend. If someone could update that'd be great! thanks.
I got my RIP too. Longer report.
Well, what have you expected from shield-less vitality-less melee character in Hell anyway? Huh? LOL

I will decide my next character later today at work. :)

Also I have updated Atigdng.

After the end of my workday I visited my friend to help her with new computer and such. At 10 p.m. it was too late to stay in her house since we were alone so I went home. No comments, please, we just good old friends, nothing more. LOL.
:uhhuh:

I'm sorry to here about Green Dragon WOL.
IMO you did very well with your shield-less vitality-less character. Good luck with your next character.

- Jas :howdy:
Wow, sorry for the high level deads :/

My char is on actI normal only, I didnt have time to more ^^.

Good luck with your next chars.

Lars is currently doing countess runs. He hasn't found any runes higher than IO and not much higher than AMN. I will do more countess running with him until he is at least level 80 or has found all the runes he needs.
I would like to join the HC Ladder with Sandro my level 14 Necro (Bonemancer to be).

I just recently started to play hardcore and I am enjoying the excitement. That might change after the first death though. :)

Could somebody please add me to the table? I am incapable of doing it myself. I have read the explanation on how to do it and still can't do it. Will have to experiment with it further at a later time.

1.11, no mod

Moar
Added Moar and updated my entry of Lars (one more Level from the Countess, but no good runes :mad: )

Welcome to the HC crowd, and remember to watch that red orb.
Just defeated Big D with my zerker. Finally started using that WC/Zerk combo - it ROCKS :)
Count me in for some hc fun. I'm using a somewhat unorthodox build, especially for hc - sacrifice with smite for backup. I figure it'll be like playing a zerker.

At level 33, thats impressive! I usually don't start using the zerk/WC combo before level 40 (when WC hits 3 seconds stun). Did you spend any points into Energy? Do you go 1-Handed or 2-handed?

Be carefull, a zerker has WC to stun enemies. Did you figure how much life leech you need to counter the damage you do to yourself?
Yesterday I have started new character, Blizzard Meteor Sorceress Katalina. I hope she will beat Green Dragon since she has no any rules except standard ladder ones, — I use shield and pump vitality this time.

The start was standard. I use this technics every time. I call it “Mlvl+6â€. Level up to level 7 at Blood Moor. Then hire mercenary, equip her with 3 chipped topazes long bow, level up to level 14 at Rakanishu. After that kill Andariel and hire Defiance hireling, and then go to Dark Elder.

Now I’m level 21. After the work I’ll continue leveling on him up to level 26, then will kill Duriel and proceed to Act 3 for farther training.
All is going under the plan. I leveled on Dark Elder up to level 26. Then I started careful but quick questing. Found the parts of The Staff and reached Duriel.
Using the power of Blizzard and Teleport I think I held my personal record by finishing whole Act 3 only for 50 minutes!
After that I decided not to spend much time in Act 4 and quickly got to Diablo skipping all the quests.
Real fun came in Act 5. I always loved /players8 Bloody Foothills for experience. After only an hour of playing I was at level 38.
My next target for leveling is always Pindleskin, our biggest friend.
Now, when both Blizzard and Glacial Spike are maxed /players8 Pindle die under just one hit of Blizzard.

Next I plan to level up more and then to go for some Baal runs and to start pumping Meteor and Fireball.

Also let me brag a bit about this Pindle boots. I love them!

Spirit Spur
Heavy Boots
+30% Run/Walk
Cold Resist +27%
Lightning Resist +39%
Half Freeze Duration
17% MF

Good luck to all!
If someone could my chars to the ladder I would appreciate it. Also I keep hearing about this RWM? I get that it stands for Runeword Mod but what exactly does it do?
Played my necro up to the dark wood a bit before it was time to crash. I'll have a ton of time to play tomorrow. 👍
There you go omgmir :)

RWM enables up to have all the runewords from Battlenet :uhhuh:

- Jas :howdy:
I'm joining you all. I just started with D2 again so there is no problem with ladder rules.

I included a Sin I played this morning (rank 23 at this moment) after reading a ''Ghost'' guide in the SC (don't remember the author). Anyway, I hope that I posted it good and I will try to beat Normal with a HC for first time (another one died versus Diablo in Classic 1.10).

Cya,
O_Menda
Another untimely death at level 28, against lord de seis. I ran past his death knights for a smite kill on seis, ended up having to retreat smack into the middle of the fanatasicm pack of knights. Messy >.<

I'll try again later with a more viable character build, my last 2 hc characters (fire dart sorc, sacrifice pally) didn't make it out of normal mode :(

I finished running the countess with Lars. I have found all the runes and items I have hoped for. He did 101 countess run to get from level 72 to 79. The best rune I got was a FAL. He now has an Obedience Thresher and a Smoke Wire Fleece. With that setup he does .8k-7.9k Damage at 7.8k AR with Enchant and Might working and his resists are all maxed out.
Lars made it into the Canyon of the Magi. He didn't have much trouble except for the CVT which had Mummies (Immune to Magic). Next up, I will kill that ugly bug (Duriel).
Katalina is dead. It was done by mighty Lightning Enchanted Cold Enchanted Zombie in Hell Mausoleum. “One should have maximum resistance in Hell difficulty†— is written on her grave.


;)
Got Oxidize up to A5 before I decided to call it quits. He's chilling at the Crystalline WP ready to play the hero and rescue Anya, level 33.
Did anyone else notice that our ladder miss Hammerdins? :D
I just have started Don Juan (shaman, not lover :)).
Got to level 7 at Blood Moor while drinking my morning juice.
Hi everyone, just thought I would drop in and say hi. I just returned from vacation, and am now preparing to move, so I fear there will be very little playing time for me for the next few months. Good luck to everyone, and I will try and get back on track when I am settled in...Kansas.
And another level for Lars. He is now standing right on the Geat Marsh WP. I didn't find a way to sneak in to the Flayer Jungle quickly, so I had to take a trip into the Great March. No Gloams for the first part of the trip.
Did find another Platinum Ring (+108AR/+3Dex), so Lars now wears 2 Platinum Rings and I think only finding a Ravenfrost could change that :D .
I'm currently looking into providing some life leech for the merc, so he doesn't die to quickly when fighting bosses (everything else can be stunned and is no big danger for him), and he needs better resists if he is to survive when we reach Act 4.
I hope this code thingy works this time!
If not, I need it explained for dummies please. :)

Having a blast playing Sandro. A complete change of pace from my tourney werebear. Still playing on with him. He just rescued Cain in NM and will take a break from questing at the Countess. I'd like to get the runes for Lore and Rhyme (White is still out of reach I guess). Don't have the Helm or Head yet, but working on it. :)
I played a bit more with Nightwish (#21), she is now in Normal Travincal. I got a lenymo early in the act 2 and a Duskeep (sp?) somewhere in the act 3 jungle. She is using Civerg's weapon right now, it's a bit slow but it gives some nice maximum damage for my leeching needs. Anyway, my shadow and act 1 merc kill everything on sight with a little help.
I updated icymanipulator. She is still in nightmare but did quite a few meph and baalruns. Baal gave me a bonehew but my merc can't use it yet :( . I also found tal orb, frostburns, ravenfrost and a titans revenge. I don't know if I will go to hell very soon. I'm still looking for a way to increase my poor resistances.

happy leveling
Well, I decided to finally break my record and get a male char past Act 1 normal. After reading a bit and being more and more tempted I decided to go nekkid. The play style is actually quite refreshing for me. Probably the most I've enjoyed questing ever, its not just ho-hum boring leveling.
Another Level for Lars. He has now defeated Mephisto and is venturing into Hell Act 4. The next stop for him will be Izual for the extra skill points (more damage :D ) and the Hellforge.
And with defeating Mephisto, Lars is now the furthest I have ever taken a HC Barbarian into the game.
Updated with my brand new pure blizz sorc and necro's current info. Oxidize finished A5 and ran baal to level 46 since I last posted, he's currently questing through A1 NM.
Had a little bit of time yesterday to play with BreakinThrough who made it all the way through act 4 hellforge drop was Lem. I swung once in the chaos sanctuary with IM on me, hehe, lost 3/5s of my life, good thing I only swung once! I want that Um so I can make Stone armor, of course then I have to find something decent to put it in :p

Well, he is now clvl 60 waiting at the forgot-the-name-of-the-first-wp-in-actV! Hoping to lvl up at least to 75, and maybe baal will give me something good! (if I live that is!)

My goal for defense when Concentrating: 40,000
My present defense while Concentrating: 17,180

Diablo CTH was 12% while concentrating... resists maxed! that sums up the battle uh huh!
Lucky crawled through A1 and 2 then blew through A3 and 4 today, nothing could stand in her way once she gained access to Blizzard. Just got to A5 at level 29, planning on questing through and doing some baal runs tomorrow. 👍
Double post!

Figured i'd update before I went to work, Lucky's finished baal runs at the ripe old age of 48. This is my first experience with a blizz sorc and I must say.. I feel even more overpowered then I ever did playing a hammerdin.. this girl runs solo /players 8 baals in 4 minutes max. As usual he dropped nothing, unless you count the Isenhart's BP. :mad:
Ahh what the hey, instead of giving up D2 all together at college, figured I'd be able to just make a char for the HC ladder. I'll limit myself to one character, a blizzard sorc, because I really enjoy MFing. When do you guys MP usually?
Updated Don Juan and added my new char, Single Skill Tree Tournament participant Assassin Soledad.
Updated Lars. He level to 83 while rescuing Anya.
Taking it slow with ole Booster. Doing Countess runs to lvl and find runes to make the low lvl stuff I nead, Lore, Stealth, that kind of thing.
Hmmm, don't like being bumped off the first page, especially my a char that's the same level but has some mysterious "I'm better than you" quality.

Anyways, still naked, still moving along well, though the ramifications of never having a skill over lvl 20 are beginning to sink in.

2 things:

Was I seeing something, or was there a trading thread for the SPHCL? I looked through teh trading forum but couldn't find it.

Second, is the rune-trading ban suspended for the SPHCL?

I've seen one for the SC ladder, but I don't remember seeing one for the HC ladder. I haven't been spending much time on the trade forum, so I might have missed it. If there isn't one on the first few pages, you could start one.
abarlament said:

Forum rules regarding rune trading still apply, so no trading runes.
I updated Nightwish, level 45 as now. I just run through act 3 and 4 and started to play act 5 in players 8 again. I wanted to get to Baal fast so I put BoS and run again until the Ancients (all the quest done except Nithlatak (sp?)). Managed to kill Baal at level 34 but I become destroyer (first time!) at level 35 ;)

Then I did some pindle runs until know for some random stuff for my some low level charcters (12-18). I will put them later in the ladder if I find them funny to play.
Played Booster all day today (nothing else to do! I'm all packed, etc etc), so now up to lvl 25 and about to take on Duriel.
Lars killed Hell Baal. For more details clicky
Breaking through killed Nightmare Baal, at lvl 70, I am going to be sticking around in nightmare to hopefully get some more weraable items.
Updated for atigdng

Lucky's up to A3 NM now after running NM countess for a couple key runes and Andy from 50-54.
I've been away from my comp for a while so I haven't had anytime to play. I'm sad to see all the deaths but I glad to see so many participants. I'll try to get in some playtime tonight and catch up. Happy questing.
What do you do when you're naked and bone prisoned 10 feet from diablo? I managed to keep him distracted with Golems for a bit but it was only s matter of time. I'll try again after a bit of a break.
Hopefully got this right... Just wanted to have some fun on hardcore,and bnet surely isnt the place to do it. So do i just update my level every so often?
Lucky killed NM Baal at level 70 and ran him from 70-76. She's now in temporary retirement to farm NM Meph and Andy for items.

Worthy drops from Baal and his minions were Um, Stealskull, Pierre Tombale, Rockstopper, and of course the requisite green Breastplate. :lol:
Soledad is doing well. Just finished Normal Baal at level 52. I like to laugh at him for his mana burn. Normal attack all the way! No mana needed. :)
Can I still join the ladder?...

I've just started HC :)

Sure, you may add asdf_Lisa if she is below level 50. Check the rules on the first post.

Ok, luckily she is still level 48 :)

Some questions:

What is the project column in the table for? Only to write where you are?

What is septavirate? (or however it's spelled...)

The project column is for people who create their HCL chars in a tourney, or in my case septavirate. Septavirate is the quest for 7 Guardians, one of each class.

More info here.
There's my blizzard sorc and shadow sin added :) Be quick to tell me if something doesn't look right while I have time to change it ;)

ps. thanks omgmir :)
YASD (Yet Another Stupid Death, NetHack style)

Nighwish - lvl 55 sin

I started act 1 NM at level 49 rocking everything on sight at players 1 (I wanted to get fast to Meph to get a pair of Bartucs and other equip-things). No problem with Andy, Duriel or any of their minions. Act 3 was easy too along with a Holy Freeze merc and Shadow Master.

I managed to enter Durance of Hate at level 54 without problems, as soon as I level to 55 I stop in a secure place for putting the 5 stats points in vitality and the skill one in Death Sentry. Anyway, I realize then that my SM is dying so I put a DS along with some Lightning Sentrys and I move then to see what was happening along the corner and... ¡BANG! my merc kills one of those lovely stigian dolls and his corpse explodes because of the DS and 4-5 more dolls explode too. Before I get to know what happened, I saw in the screen ''Your deeds of valor will be remembered''. End of the story.

I will decide a new char (I have some but none that can beat normal as most of them are fun or rpg builds) this night and will start to post his adventures tomorrow evening. Cya.

Well, someone should read stickers so I'll do it for you. :)
SPF FAQ said:
The Septavirate

The Sept is a character Grail of 7 guardians using very strict rules. I will not repeat them here, only ask that you refer to the Septavirate Home Page, maintained by Trenshadow.
Also I'd like to add myself that “Septavirate†is a corrupted version of Septemvirate term, a power of seven rulers.

May as well give my first entrant, then. My character is in the Single Skill Tourney, and is a level 27 Shadow Assassin. Name is TheShadowKnows

I added my single tree Amazon, Gabrielle to the list (as well as Billybgame's Assasin.) I was surprised to discover that Gabrielle is only the second Amazon to join the list. (Even worse, the other one is my daggerzon who is still sitting in the Rogue Encampment.) Where did all the 'Zon lovers go? :)

I haven't forgot about the website, but with school I may have to wait until Christmas break to get the time to get the database going. I do plan to have it fully up and running before the end of the year.
Super short update:
Okami is now level 31 and in act 5.
I started an undead hunter pally. His name is Hayll and he is level 15.
Both are septavirate chars.
Updated my sorc's progress :)
Haven't played much in the last couple days, Dungeon Siege 2 has caught my attention and held it pretty damn well. :lol:
Added a new necro-summoner at level 22 as now. No news other than that.
Deleted my Sorceress and replaced her with another Meteorb with the name CharlieMcGee. Leveled here to 22. She just completed the staff and is now headed into the Palace.
Update the progress of my Sorc.
Since I've updated to 1.11 (and not played it yet...) I think it's time to get back into this ladder stuff. I have a hard time choosing between playing my 1.10 Hydra Sorc (Act 2 NM finally!) and starting a couple (or three) new characters.

When I do get started, I'll have
Dampe, Bonemancer
Dax II, Swordmaiden (I said I'd do it again, and I'm doing it again!)
and for good measure, an
Assassin whose name and build I have hardly considerd yet
I'd like to join in with the HC ladder with my new Assassin :)

I've got no idea what the heck the build would be called... going for max TS, max Dragon Tail - but she's using slow high damage 2H weapons...

I know :D Tigertail Smasher :lol:
Just got into Act 2 Normal and hit level 20 with my Assassin.
Got an update for my Assassin. Level 45, just starting NM. Could someone move me on up the ladder? Sorry, but I don't have much faith in doing it myself, without screwing up the whole ladder. Danka.
Updated my Sorc and Billybgame's Assasin.
Alright I'll give this a try and update myself... BreakinThrough lvled to 75 doing countess runs on p3. mainly for experience. He also found a Ravensfrost off of a champion dark archer pack :D Now he can use a higher defensive armor instead of the NM meph found duriels shell.

Good, it looks like I used the code finally.... 👏
I've decided I'm going to play SC for a while until I get back into the game, so I'm deleting my Assassin.
Leveling is going really quick for my Meteorb. She got from 49 to 53 in under a hour. I hope it keeps up like that. She has just assembled the Staff and is now ready to head into the Palace and clear out the Arcane Sanctuary.
Updated my sorc's progress and added a new lightning zon.

Edit: added meteorb and hammerdin and my zon leveled to level 50.
Hi,

I tried this yesterday, but it did not seem to accept my posts anymore.

I would like to join with my Single Tree Tournament character to the SPF HC ladder here.

Nathan is a Hunter Druid, now on his way to NM Memphisto. He is now lvl 54.
According to the rules I'm only allowed to join when 3 active members say it's Ok. (as I am past the lvl 50 mark)

As for his credentials, he is:
- HC
- untwinked (has own ATMA stash)
- played everything solo
- allthough still "vanille" he wants enter as RWM. (he is just not rich enough to afford some of these new runewords)

Randall
Sure.

IMHO since everyone in Single Skill Tree Tournament has announced their character to SPF before level 50, it is acceptable to add them to the ladder, if they follows the rules (1.11 only and no RRM).
Ok, here he is.

For a few images you can go right here:

As for RRM: If you take a look at picture nr 2 you can see I've found a Dol (including it's color) in Act 5 of normal.

PS.
Is it me or is the table not viewable without horizontal scrolling ?

Updated my Sorcs progress and rescued this thread from page 4 :D
Added in my lightning sorc for the Single Tree tourney. I'm hoping to make her my first ever conqueror.
Update for my Single Skill Tourney assassin. Rising up the ranks, at 60. She's done in the tourney, as I had to save and exit, out of a very dicey situation. But, she'll at least live to fight another day on the ladder.
Well, I have finally returned to my SP projects and after a quick death with my "gifts" tourney char, decided to do some work on the septavirate. Though I had started Osteus before, i figured that it would be better to start one of the others, so Amelia got the nod. I changed my mind from FW to Hydra for the backup skill, but either way blizzard will do most of the killing. She has reached act IV of normal, and so far so good. No real surpises left in Norm these days, but I still have to be careful or the game can still kill!

CB

edit: haven't done the RWM yet, but now after enjoying it on Bnet with other SPF members that wanted a run at the ubers I have found I liked some of the options.... still thinking about it
A second update today because Amelia completed normal, meaning it is time to move the next of the seven to that same point. With limited twinking I decided that I would use a Zealot for my pally instead of the avenger, since the avenger is much more dependent on weapon damage. The backup plan will be holy shock, possibly helped by CB if he is lucky enough to find the gear for it. So the adventure will start for Newton the paladin.

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, by someone should say this.

Here are the rules for the 1.11 SPF HC Ladder:

3. You will play with honor, and will not use ESC when facing certain death.
I've arrived in Hell, life is tough there though.
I most likely take a bit more time to get more experience and better items out of Nightmare before going on in Hell.

Yeah, I see that now, too. I was just trying to find a SP HC Ladder trading thread, as there is for SC, and couldn't and came searching here for info. Saw that statement. Either forgot, or missed it, before. I was going to post about it, but see you beat me to it. I guess we consider her R.I.P.ed, then.

I'll probably start another one for that Tourney.

Is there a trading thread for this Ladder? I know the rules say we can only trade amongst the ladder, so I thought there was.
All right, I don't want to bork the table for the dozenth time...can anybody add my Bonemancer Dampe? Non-RWM, Level 5 in the Cold Plains.

I'll call him Septavirate, just in case...

It is interesting, but it seems trading is more common for SC. Hardcore players prefer self found items. It isn’t rule, — just an observation.

The table is updated for me, Billybgame and JicamaEater.

Huh. Yeah, you'd think it'd be even more important. If you feel you really NEED an item, for safety's sake, trading would be such a great way to do it.

Not too late to start a thread in the SP Trading forum, is it?
Billybgame said:

IMHO:

There is no such item that guaranties your safety in Hardcore. Surely items still important, but your playing skills are more important. In SC items and builds are at the first place, because you are immortal and may play more efficiently with less playing experience.

I bet you think you need “better items†and “cookie-cutter build†in RL too, don’t you? ;)
Updated my Sorc. She has now reached the WSK WP and will be going for Baal the next time around.

I just know, come Hell, you can very well be lacking in resists. So, maybe you REALLY want a Rockstopper helm, for instance. Or, whatever the situation is. Trading would be a good way to get it. But, I'm being the master of the obvious.
just a quick update to say Newton the frost-zealot is doing well, he just reached the flayer jungle and the fine level of 27. After reading the guide on frostzealots I'll probably stick fairly closely to that instead of going with a hybrid, and hope the phys dmg is enough for cold immunes.

Also did a couple more Baal runs with Amelia, she is up to lvl 54. Even if I do a few more runs she won't get much higher lvl before nm. There are so many good things that even norm baal could drop, but she can't coax one out of him.

I'll update the table another time.

CB
Table update, plus some progress. A couple more Baal runs netted amelia a meat scraper and a level. Newton has 2 of 4 body parts of Khalim and waypoints up to upper kurast. I also added Osteus onto the ladder, since I started him way back when the ladder stated, and he is still alive, though unplayed in some time.

CB
Finally found some time to play. BigDaddy went destroyer after some long slashing through act 5. Berserker is really slowwwww in normal. Maxed BO and now working on WC. I'm going to gamble some better weapon as soon as I find an Amn rune for an upgrade)
Good luck everyone!
Updated my Sorc progress. She has just killed Radament and done a few Andariel runs.
Just got my sorceress killed. I was fighting Fangskin when he died and so did my Sorcy. Don't know why.

Just got my sorceress killed. I was fighting Fangskin when he died and so did my Sorcy. Don't know why.
My condolences. Rest in peace, brave hero.

But really, why she died? As you can see my own sorc, Katalina, has died at near the same level as yours. I guess we got into the same trap. My Blizzard/Meteor girl was the most powerful character I ever played, so I become stupid and ran into Hell with negative resistance. As result she met her destiny in a form of LE zombie in the Mausoleum. My most stupid death ever! :( At least every death teach us something.
Hey everybody I'm back!

My first entry into the 1.11 HCL is none other than Mr_Fur the Armageddon Bear. I made it to Act II last night with no problems so far. My planned build is to max Lycan, Maul, Armageddon, and Volcano. I'm not so sure on the Merc, I can't decide between Might or Holy Freeze.

Sorry about your loss Andi :(
Sorry to hear about your sorc AndiDi; I'll make sure I give Fangskin an extra whack on the way by.

Newton the frost zealot completed normal and a few baal runs besides to reach level 49. The overall effect of that HF aura at level 20 is quite impressive, though he sure slows down against monsters that have high cold resists. He tried to craft a blood axe, but didn't have much success. Probably better to try again when he is higher level.

With Newton through normal it was time to start another char, so Flying_Snow (anyone else like the movie 'Hero'?) was started. She has already saved the rogues and is starting in on act II, looking for a Horodric cube. One she got BF she because very quick for this part of the game, and soon the lightning traps will be available too.

OT: got a new computer this past thurs. P4 3.00 GHz ATI radeon PCI express card etc etc.... what a difference from the old one. But the most amazing thing is this flat panel monitor... wow, what a nice picture.

Thanks for condolenses. But nevermind I just started a new Frostmaiden Utuk'ku. I decided to do it untwinked as long as possible (I hope until Hell Baal :D ). She will have (20 Cold Arrow, 20 Freezing Arrow, 10 Strafe, 17 Valk). She is now level 7 and has just killed Bloodraven. I hope this will keep me occupied until the 3rd edition of the TWD starts (I can't wait to start, I already have planed out my chars I will do).

OT: I got myself a new computer a month back. What flat panel monitor do you have. I always had problems with my 19"-TFT and my ATI card to get the scaling right (800x600 scaled to 1280x1024 doesn't look right). Now I use a NVidia card and all my problems are gone.

My monitor is a Dell 1905FP (19inch, digital input). The picture looks great at 1280x1024 for me. Actually, I wish I had more room on my desk to move the monitor farther away though...
I've made my first HC character, in a bid to try to make it to Guardian. He's a fledgling Fishymancer. Thing is, I'm playing Vanilla 1.10. Can I add him here, or is there still an active 1.10 ladder thread? (I tried searching for a 1.10 ladder thread, but my browser refused.)
Leveled up my Amazon over the weekend. She is now level 28. I plan to level her to 30 before facing the Council. This way she has Valkyrie and Freezing Arrow before that.

-Andi
I'm still using my poopie laptop right now so new computer update for me CB!

I did however manage to beat Diablo last night with Mr_Fur.

I'm not sure I would use the word "active" but the 1.10 thread is here:

http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=260237

I still have one character on it, although my complete lack of playtime since school started (and my 1.11 characters) means that he won't be making any progress any time soon.
I realized I should add my TWD characters to the ladder, so here they are...
Added my Darts Tournament paladin and updated the satus of Soledad, who was doing Mausoleum runs last month. Will add my TDW chars next time after I will start playing them.

P.S.: How is the work with the ladder web page, Cattleya? Need help? I write database programs in Visual C++ and SQL at work, however I’m not familiar with web programming.

At this point the main issue for me is time. (I don't remember college being this hard the first time around. :D ) I really haven't had a chance to take a real look to see what I need to do. I plan to make it my main project during the winter break. (Aside from actually playing some of my D2 characters. :) ) Once I get going, I'm sure I'll start bothering all of the friendly SPFers that have volunteered to help out when I get stuck.
Almost added a char I started in 1.10. What a n00b.
My freshly rock-bottom started Blizzard Sorceress added, I might add my TWD III characters too, by the way, why don't we have an experience tab? It's not too relevant as of now, but it's fancy later! :teeth:
Soledad becomes Guardian at Single Skill Tree Tournament.

Also added my TWD3 characters.

I’m not familiar with BNet’s ladder. Is there a exp tab? How characters with equal level but different exp are placed?
This came up in another thread, and I realized that it hadn't been addressed here. (Or if it was, I missed it.) Does anyone have a problem going with the idea of 1.11 = 1.11b for the ladder? I'm assuming that some people have upgraded and others have not.

Also, to answer the XP tab question: For now, lets leave it out, since it will just complicate the table more. I will add it in when we move to the website (which should be by the end of the year.)
I added my TWD trio.
I have to say that the first column (rank) is very annoying. Rewriting rank of all players if there is a move on high position is silly...
Good luck, don't die.
Sorry about the lack of updates here, I forget I have a char in the table. Anyway he died at level 31 versus Normal Diablo.
Would someone please add me to the list, please. I don't want to ruin the format. Name: malaika_kaimu Lvl 52 Fishy 1.11 RWM.
I would do it myself but Xmas parties = not able too :D
Thanks *hugs*

Since the Gambler's Delight tourney involves item trading as you play, any character from that tourney doesn't qualify for the ladder unless they opt out of receiving and items at the end of each act.

Welcome to you TWD characters, though. :)

Ahhh....hadn't thought of that aspect. Oops.
Removed IrisEyes
Elekrta increased from 25 to 33 in the TWD tourney, and I thought I'd put my Gypsy Scoundrel Tourney character, SweetVengeance in, as he seems like he's become somewhat stable, and just might survive for awhile.
Not sure how to use all of this but I have S3 HCL level 93 Sorc and Level 95 Paladin

Please, read the rules on the first post of this thread. If you don't understand, this is the single player forum, the characters are SP and the thread is only for simulation of BNet ladder.
My necro never made it very far, in fact I think I deleted him. He's recreated though as I am attempting a septavirate(untwinked, single pass). I felt like doing some melee, created David - level 18 frost zealot.
I added Alexa to the ladder and made minor updates on Kathryn and Phoenix (both made it to the Cold Plains. :) )
Sweet Vengeance made it to act 4 in the Gypsy Scoundrel tourney, so was worthy of an update and climb.
Of course, now that I'm back it's HC all the way (business as usual). So I'm starting from scratch with a 1.11 HC self-found grail and a new septavirate (using my original rules).

So to that end, Helene the Sorc was born and has gone to L10 on her way to finding Cain (soon!). I'll get her into the ladder table when she is a little more worthy. Yet to find her first grail piece, but all in good time. ;)

Good to see this is still going strong and so many fantastic performances! keep em up, and don't die!

Butz. :dunce:
Wow, this thread has fallen....

I have had much less time to play so my grand septavirate goal has gone by the wayside. All the chars started still remain, but I havent touched them in ages. Instead I'm doing a singular project. He's been going about 3 weeks, and I just realized I should add him here, in case I were to ever want to trade ladder items.

This is a revisit to the armageddon werebear I played in one of the AQT's a while back. He'll be fun.

So: Introducing Crazy_Bear the were-bear druid. Currently lvl 28 in act 3 normal.

And a big call out to all the rest of you HC players out there!
Lets see if the forum brings this back to the top...

Crazy_Bear the druid has progressed to act 5, rescuing Anya and reaching the glacial trail. He's still using a 'Steel' battle axe he made in act 2, so is in search of a better weapon. Anya at least gave him a better helm than what he was using.

Though he is untwinked, he has rerun some areas, not that this had netted him much in the way of gear. He is now lvl 38, and should level once or twice more before taking on ancients.

CB
Let see if we can bring the HC ladder back up, starting a new character in HC a Sorc.

Havent played HC for ages and she will be completely untwinked RWM

will make her a simple meteorb and the name is "Irish_Pirate" 😁

DX
My little Pirate is doing very well have made a rush start and completen Act1 and made it all the way to Arcane Sanctuary, only one NDE sofar and it was Rakanishu forgot how lethal he is when playing a sorceress untwinked.

She is now lvl 24 and starts to pump meteors and throw fireballs all over the place. My gear is much mana atm will prolly need some life before I meet duriel, hopefully I can find a good socket armor to put some flawed rubies in it.

Good Luck out there

My Druid cleaned up the rest of Act V normal, yay!

He found a nagelring (first unique find) in the ancients way and the bonus exp from ancients brought him to lvl 43. After reaching the WSK wp he went back and killed Nilly. The rest of the WSK was uneventful, the minions dropped nothing, and Baal himself dropped some rares, sigons gloves and a duskdeep. So Crazy_Bear is a destroyer at the fine level of 46. He's maxed Volcano and is starting on Armageddon. The one thing about this build is that there are so many skills needed, Shockwave and Lycanthropy need to be higher too... here's hoping for finding some +skills gear.

You know, the problem with these chars is they get addictive, you want to see them progress.

Crazy_Bear has pushed his way through most of act 2 NM now, having just reached the arcane sanctuary. He has also reached lvl 56 (nearly 57) and seems to be doing fine on p8 still. It seems likely that will change for act3, but who knows? A lore antlers with bonus +2 to armageddon looks nice and a find of a Bverrit keep has fire resist maxed easily. Still looking for a good druid club... gotta remember where jiansonz said those could be shopped.... anyway the bear sure is helpful, and Crazy_Bear has gone between volcano and armageddon depending on the need. Shockwave's stun effect is just awesome for slowing the baddies down, and armageddon is up to about 1.4k dmg. Not so powerful as a sorc's meteor, but more fun.

I should really be going to bed though, so good night and good luck to all.
Updating my GypsyScoundrel tourney Avenger, SweetVengeance, who met his demise to double boss packs of demon archers in the NM Tower. A bit too overconfident, and should have TP'd to get my merc. Ah, lessons learned. Again.
Well got a break from CS and KotoR2 and took my sorceress through act4. Had a close call when facing diablo but pressed 2 times to chuck 2 small purple and it was all safe and after that he didnt have much life left after static him alot.
Was easy finish him off with Frozen Orb.

Not anything else to add, have very amazing itemsetup.

Gnarled staff +3 static Field
2 soc helm with 2 perfect Sapphire, Hellforge gave me one of em
Stealth Chain Mail
Bloodfist
rest of gear gives resist, FCR and MF and other stuff.

She is no lvl 34 and ready to face baal

Good Luck all

My Druid completed act3 NM tonight, defeating Meph in a long battle and reaching lvl 63. One thing about this build is that it seems just fine for killing speed while questing but is very slow vs act bosses. I even lowered the players setting to 5 (up to this point always p8) just before going into durance 3 to speed it a bit, but it was still very slow. However, he was never in any danger, he just kept the bear on Meph and kept a volcano going. Meph dropped a few rares and a Sigon's Shield. I'm not sure if that shield or the 'The Ward' shield he found will be the best to use. He has found two of the unique gothic shield. They are great for the resists (the second one has a perfect 50 res all!) but then the Sigon's +skills is so nice, especially with +skills so hard to come by untwinked.
Other noteworthy gear is magefists and sureshrill frost (just found at the start of act 4). The sureshrill would even be a good weapon if he was putting points into dex (right now his AR is super terrible) He also found a Lem rune in Durance 1. Not a lot of uses for a Lem rune though, unless he gets really lucky and finds an ist in hell somewhere so he can make 'Delerium'. It will be interesting to see what the NM hellforge will bring too.

Anyway, good hunting to all,
CB.

Ah, well, now that I've gotten Piscene through Normal, I might as well join the HC crowd.

She's a soreceress, I think I'll go meteorb, as the only experience I've had so far with sorcy's was a tri-elemental in 1.09, which I hear is no longer viable.

She's lvl. 15 now, not yet using any magic to kill, except for the occasional static field and one point in ice bolt to slow stuff down and allow the poison from the bow to do it's work.

Now, where's that meteorb guide....
The journey of Crazy_Bear the Druid continued today with the end of act 4 and the beginning (well, pretty much half) of act 5. In the process of completing these quests he received a Ko from the NM hell forge and a Tal's Mask from Eldritch. Nice merc helm there.

Found a Darkglow.... tempting to use, but not that tempting. Still, the +5 max resists would be nice for hell, assuming Crazy lives through the NM ancients and WSK. Unless a nicer armour drops along the way that might come into play.

Anyway, he reached the glacial trail wp, rescued Anya, and is now lvl 69.

CB
I realized that I should probably get Pooncer on here since he is approaching level 50. Then I realized just how out of date some of my characters were. So, there were a lot of little updates (and a big one for Alexa) and a couple of new Septavirate characters to add. I also think I got the table updated with everyone else's characters (so you might want to check to make sure I didn't make any mistakes.)
I would like to be placed on this ladder please.

Unfortuately, one of the key rules of the ladder is that all items must come from within the ladder item pool. That means that that one trade made with Aero Gear (who isn't a ladder participant as far as I can see) disqualifies the character. (Oh, and just a termanoligy note: I don't think you can call any character who uses traded items untwinked. :wink3: )

Also, for future reference, characters should be added before they hit level 50. The rules do allow exceptions to be made for higher level characters with enough "votes" (which people are usually pretty willing to give) but it saves everyone the hasle if you remember to get your characters on before the cutoff.
Ah, the HC thread shows up again...

I should get in the habit of reporting more often, but this time I've been trying to forget about what I did to poor Crazy_Bear. He cleared NM, defeating Ancients and Baal. He entered Hell at lvl 74, quite respectable. With some adjustments to gear and players setting he got geared up for hell, and easily cleared the den and the Blood raven. I decided it would be great to see if he could get a lucky drop by clearing the Mausoleum. Unfortuately, what he got instead was a bad FE/LE/cursed boss which I didn't take seriously enough. I messed up and the FE explosion took out Crazy_Bear. RIP. *sigh* he had lots of life and good resists, and I had no excuse, just didn't play carefully enough.

For the record, as I see the fields were left blank of the ladder, he was vanilla 1.11, untwinked.
Ack. RIP Crazy_Bear. The FE bug may have been fixed, but it can still pack a dangerous punch.

I'll add it in the next time I update the table. (Since this isn't as active as the SC ladder, I don't mind just posting updates every once and a while and letting the participants just post their own character's stats.)

I'd have to quit school to keep up with that. 😁

Then again, you would have to give up your pretty red runes and start over. :evil:
Entered my 3rd HC char, well, my 2nd... Just found out my L22 Wussalot had had the misfortune of not been checked [HC], so, he's a softcore Wussalot :p Oh well, can't have enough practice I guess. Hope I did the table right, it keeps troubling me...

Good luck all!
Would anyone mind if I added my level 35 trapper? He got out alive of the Lifeless tourney when I accidentaly disqualified myself after killing Baal (spoke to Malah).
Took some searching to find this thread. Let's keep it closer to the first page. If the Search here worked half the time, it'd sure help, too.

Elektra from the TWD tourney has reached level 42, so I figured time for an update.

Edit: Forgot to update BerzerkBilly from the same.

Also, AeroGear, I see no one answered you from awhile ago. I think you're good to join, as long as you're below level 50, and haven't twinked/traded with non ladder characters.
Below level 50? All my HC chars made after my 3 javazons whom are all dead are all untwinked and using gear they manage to gamble or find on their own. Clvl 62 concentrate barb and clvl 33 Frostzealot.

My graveyard is getting crowded :lipsrsealed:
Well, I think I'd like to join this sucker. First off, with my SPUMF II char. And until I get the go ahead with 3 of you, I'd like to enter my Skill-less toruney char. He's only lvl 16, not even to the Countess yet.
Level 50 and below, feel free to enter. Over 50, you then must petition for 3 approvals from ladder members.
OHHHHHH, I guess I read that backwards. Then Naivearian shall enter. I'll also update what I did with duckymancer last night.
Petition...? How am I supposed to do that? The char was started less than 2 weeks ago :undecided:

Um.....I think you just did:wink3:

I'll give you a vote.😃

Still your Frost Zealot can be added at anytime, though.

I'll be vote number 2. 😃
Can someone explain how to edit the code to remove/add my own chars?

I'm back playing again, and I see my old chars are still on there. I'd like to update their status and add my new one.

Can someone explain how to edit the code to remove/add my own chars?

I'm back playing again, and I see my old chars are still on there. I'd like to update their status and add my new one.

Ammut - Level 25 Trapsin joins the ladder
There are instructions on how to edit the code tags here. Welcome back!
Wasn't sure what to put for my old chars that I no longer have, so I just put 'Retired'. They were still alive last time I played, but i've since built a new pc and don't have backups of them. :undecided:
Didn't really want to double post but wanted to add the reincarnation of Lucky before she hit 50.
Removed an old enty and added a new one.

Randall
Added my trapper before she hit level 50, she should hit level 70 fairly soon this week.:wink2:
Still waiting on third vote to add my barb, he's level 68 and starting A5 NM currently.

Next time I'll edit this table with excel, changing all the numbers for ranks was meh.

Just make sure you convert Excel's tabs to spaces or things can get screwed up nicely when you post or others try to edit. 😃

Or you could just take me up on my earlier offer to update the table periodically and just post your own character's information.

And yes, yes, the website is on my to do list this summer after my 3-week summer class. I won't be working, so I should finaly have some time. 😁

I noticed that as well. Can't we keep it just for the top 20 (and blank the others), that would make editing a lot more easy.

EDIT: or keep it for characters higher than lvl 50/60 so new entries are not to difficult.

That sounds like a pretty good idea. How about we go with the top 30 since that is what shows up on one screen's worth.
Went through the jungles on Act III, as allways it's a long walk there.

Randall
The rest of my Septavirate have been added to the ladder, plus a couple of other characters from tourneys. I've decided I have way too many characters. 😃

As was suggested earlier by Randall, I have removed the rankings after 30. Hopefully, this will make it a lot less scary to edit the table, and now everyone has to work for the honor of a ranking. 😁
Lucky became a Conqueror a couple minutes ago, planning on running Baal with her until 75 or so. After that she'll be parked at NM Andy and NM Meph for awhile as I work on other projects. :wink3:
Just trying to drum up a third vote for Aerogear's character, before it gets forgotten. Come on now, one vote is all he needs...................................
AeroGear said:
Petition...? How am I supposed to do that? The char was started less than 2 weeks ago :undecided:
No problem, I'll give vote nr 3

Randall
Played through most of Act III, now just one step before memphisto.

Randall
SiriusBlack became a Destroyer and level 45 tonight. Corrected Elektra a bit, as well, to level 45.

Sorry to have to knock someone out of the coveted top 30.:wink3:
Slowly going to the top-30 list.

Mempisto was very easy, next stop is the hellforge.

Randall
Ska's up to NM act 1, lvl 44. Didn't play him for a few days while I searched for a 3os knout for Black with Lucky.. finally found one and he's steamrolling now.

Are the rules about trading with HC non-ladder people still enforced? If so i'm gonna end up removing my chars from the ladder as soon I will need to start trading. It's hard enough finding people to trade HC without narrowing down the field even smaller to the few people that still actively participate in this ladder.
I added Laura from the 10 days/10 tasks tourney, and made minor updates to Phoenix and Tycho. I also added AeroGear's barb to the table, but he's going to have to fill in the missing information.

@omgmir: The rules about trading are not going to change. One of the main reasons for this rule is to generate a more controlled trading pool, where everyone involved is using the same set of rules, and allowing trading off of the ladder defeats this purpose.

@omgmir: The rules about trading are not going to change. One of the main reasons for this rule is to generate a more controlled trading pool, where everyone involved is using the same set of rules, and allowing trading off of the ladder defeats this purpose.
I understand why the rules are in place and i'm not arguing them, I was just asking if they still stood since it's been awhile since I participated in the ladder.

You have to understand my side as well when there's not one SPHCL trade thread in the whole trade forum.
@asdfgah: I went to clean up the mess we created with our simulpost, and I couldn't find any previous mention of Shizuka on the ladder. If I missed it, let me know. Otherwise, you are going to have to petition to get her on.

@omgmir: I don't think your will have much better luck with HC trading off the ladder. It's just that most HC players around here don't trade much. Ultimately, you will have to decide what is important to you as far as enjoying the game. I'm not putting my SC characters on that ladder since I decided that I wanted to be able to do stuff that isn't allowed by ladder rules (specifically rushing.)

No there was no previous mention. I'm sorry but I haven't heard the word petition before, what do you mean by that? :badteeth:

Normally, only characters level 50 and lower are allowed to be added to the ladder. However, we decided when we set up the ladder to allow a way for people who didn't get there characters on in time to still have a chance. So, you need 3 active ladder participants to okay adding you Trapsin.

I'll be number 1. 😃
so is this still going if so i'd like to join...

Oh I seeeee 😃
Embarassing that I missed it... :embarassed:
Better sign up some more chars now then before then go past 50 ;)
I'll be number 1. 😃
Very much appreciated 😁

I'll 2nd that.
@asdfgah: I'll give vote nr 3.

Is it me, or has Diablo been slightly improved in 1.11 ?

R.I.P. for Randall at lvl 33 in the battle with diablo. I'll be back with another character, but first I will be working on a tournament character though.

Randall
Thanks a lot everyone for letting Shizuka in to the ladder, you've made her a very happy 'sin 😃
Just getting around to the cleanup of the simulpost now that Shizuka is official. Pooncer also made some progress this morning, making it to the Canyon of the Magi in NM.

Guys.....it's been quite awhile now, but I actually created a HCL trade thread in the trade forum, just like it's SC counterpart that GooberGrape had going. This was way back when I became a SPFer in the fall. I sure might be a trader. But, it appeared to get no interest, last I checked. If you search, you should find it, and if we get it active, that might generate more trading.

I've never understood the lack of HC trading. I can find most things I want in SC. HC's where I need better things.

So if you find something good, you are more likely wanting to keep it yourself for using, right ?

plus with HC players you see a lot more untwinked playing.

Randall
Ammut my trapsin became a destroyer today, a couple baal runs and she'll be ready for NM.
Lucky made it through the first 3 Acts of hell despite a couple hairy situations in the Maggot Lair and Flayer Jungle.. She'll be retired to meph runs again, just this time Hell instead of NM. :azn:

Well regardless of whether anyone else is interested in trading or not, i'm going to start adding a 2 item max ISO at the end of each of my update posts. Just in case anyone else is willing to trade, they can PM me.

Current ISO: Skullder's, Titan's
Update for asdf_HCsdf and asdf_HCblizz, added hammerdin asdf_HCbauglir to the ladder (lvl 49, phew)
I'm sorry about this but I forgot about the lvl 50 rule for joining for the furyzon (lvl 55 now), can she join please? :embarassed:

ps. why are only entries 1-30 ranked? Any thought behind it or are they just left out cuz of laziness?

Your furyzon is fine with me.

As for the rankings, check back a few posts for your answer. Renumbering 70+ people was driving people insane, so this makes table editing less daunting, and gives people something to work for. 😃

Well, sometimes something good may not be good for you, and may be for someone else. At least at that time. Not to mention duplicates.

I understand what you say about untwinked. Makes more sense in SC too me, though. But, I know what you mean.
asdfgah somewhere along the road in adding your chars you screwed up. I bolded the char you need to fix. You said you were adding her and she was 55 but you have her listed at 65.. and in the wrong place on the ladder. I would fix it for you but not sure whether you typoed and she's 55 or 65.

Updated Ska's progress, he's reached A2 NM and is steamrolling everything in site at /p8.

Current ISO: |Skullder's, Gore Rider, Heaven's Light| PM me

Sorry for being a bit unclear here. The thing is I have two javazons and it's the new one I've been talking about entering the ladder. The one already in the list was added some time ago and I just updated the level but guess I forgot to put her in the right place. asdf_HCsdf is fury/strafe and the new one (named asdf_Luna) is pure fury and isn't in the ladder yet.
Jeez what a mess sorry :sad2:
Gotcha, fixed.

Was one year since my last time on single-player but this thread really got me started! I had a 95 HC sorc doing fine before I started with bnet, and hopefully I can do it again :D.

Gonna begin my char tomorrow now :)
Played some.
Removed dead necro, added my tournament assasin.

Tournament is here: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=443046

Skills and stats are limited in this tournament, I was allowed fire traps (Wof (max) + FB(max) ), Blade Fury (1pt) and Venom(max) and a few points in the lower martial arts. Stats are exactly given in the tournament as well.

I made some screenshots from her progress:

Small update, Melissa is now lvl 41

Randall
I added my new Werebear Druid. He is just Level 4. I play him with RWM and I will try to do it untwinked. We'll see when I start twinking him.

-Andi
Killed off my hybridzon Faith (lvl 73, Act 2 Hell) a few days ago. Thought about the name a bit and decided I really liked Faith (my original one is about a year older then that runeword ftr) so here she is, reincarnated, and HCL this time.

Also this one will probably not be a hybrid, without good gear behind it the bow skills are too weak.
Another update for Teddy the Werebear. He got to Level 13. His next challange is to kill the Countess.

-Andi
Started up my frost zealot again. He cruised through most of normal. Killing speed slowed down some in A5 (players 8), but baal dropped me an eye of etlich ammy and 20% ias gloves so things are going fast p8 NM. lets see how long he can keep it up!
I hold my promise, and here is my char! Started her yesterday and now she finally reached act 5 nm. Watch out nr 1, I'm coming for ya!

EDIT: Gained some additional levels. (I was 50 when I added the first time)
Will begin tonite. Good luck! 😁
edit1000: Ok after a ton of tries I hope this is right. How do you align so well?

I copy paste the table to notepad and edit there.

(you can take any editor, you just need to set it to a fixed-size font like courier)

Randall
If anyone has any issues with me joining the ladder, I'd say 'em now. I'd like to add my three surviving hardcore characters, a paladin, necromancer and sorceress. Highest level is 22, and the only external item any character has came from one of the other two.

All around the end of Act 1 to the middle of Act 2.

Already inserted into the table.
I thought I'd update my sorcs progress, will update the others either when I come home today or tomorrow. asdf_HCBlizz has gone from 87 to 89 doing p8 pindleruns.
Melissa is in Nightmare

Randall
Added FA/LF zon asdf_Joan and updated entries.

Some are missing the dead/alive status, I just wondered why..
I just had enough time for 1 lvl-up to get a number before my name.

Randall

PS.

The black riders are coming, they are neither dead nor alive :wink3:

(Or they forgot their status)
Worked on my naked necro and brought up a few others to the same level. I may just add a 3 more so that I've got one of each class.
I found this one that I don't have any use for;

Fanatic Grand Charm of Greed
Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
Required Level: 42
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 62
Fingerprint: 0x149c3f1d
16% Extra Gold from Monsters
+1 to Masteries Skills (Barbarian Only)

First to provide with an email addy gets it!
Requesting permission to enter the ladder with my first guardian: Gabrielle, L86 FO/FB sorc.

Finally reached act 5 hell today, but no guardianship yet. Anyone got Tal Armor for trade? :D

Updated Teddy the Werebear to level 21.

-Andi
Gabrielle (nepeta) just got another vote! ;) 👍
*gives my vote*

edit: :x
asdf_joan has improved quite a bit since the last time (1-80) and teh hammahdin went early to hell at p1 so he's only lvl 70 now. He's at hellforge ( hel rune :rant: ) .
That's what you get for rushing to get a high rune I guess :laugh:

edit: trying to make the sentences more readable but it doesn't look like I succeeded :rolleyes:
edit#2: forgot to edit the hammerdins level into the table and adding meteorb sorc asdf_Kosmos! I can swear I had one in the table before but it's not anymore..
YES, FINALLY! Been doing pindle for soo many hours and now I finally reached 90 and #1 rank. I doubt I'll stay there for long, though.
Just a litte bit of progress with my tournament character
Update for asdf_Joan.
Got to level 81 after clearing the chaos sanctuary and doing the diablo quest (in hell OFC), quest 1 and 2 in act5 and taking the arreat plateau WP (or is it the frozen tundra that is after the frigid highlands? Can't remember =/ ).
asdf_Joan is now at level 84 and guardian!
Expect a guardian thread in a forum near you soon ;)
My first post on this thread.

I play SC with RWM/RRM but vanilla for HC.
My HC chars was 1.10 vanilla (a frenzier) then an MA assa (dormant and I think I dont want to continue her journey) and a windy (dropped as weel). In 1.11 I started a meteorb named Lucy but she was dead at 71 :rant: thus I suspended my HC in 1.11.
And now after sometime toiling on SC, my HC spirit is back. I was thinking of joining the Ring tourney but I can't make I build I want to, so I decided to join here and started a new char:

Name: Phanata
build: PJ/LF zon
clvl: 15
location: catacombs

👋 to everybody on this thread

Thanks! let's see if I managed to reach guardian and find some MFing stuff.
I'm planning to make her reach clvl 93.

I was thinking about HC for some time now, even started Blizzy for the purpose of collecting those much wanted items for other characters.
Why not join this nice ladder then =)
May I present you Anna the blizzy sorc (currently level 19 stationed in Lut Gholein -- this is ok as I understood from rules) and Yurban (fishymancer level 1). Those two will be there to collect as much as they can and hopefully help me reach my first guardian =)

So, 👋 to everybody and good luck with your projects!

Elektra got sick and tired of getting knocked out of the top 30, so she's back, at level 50.
Added a Barb from the Tournement of the Ring and a slight improvement on my Zon.
Well, that didn't last long. Should've known better than to be playing HC in NM, on minimal sleep. My strongest TWD character, Elektra just bit the dust to a boss pack of Tainted. I thought it was odd, that my Lightning Fury wasn't doing these guys much damage, even when it was normal ones. I thought it seemed they typically are low HP monsters. Anyhow, I opened a door in the Catacombs, and when I noticed my merc and valkyrie fall, I didn't last but a second. Didn't even get to ID the boss, and exited in irritated fashion before doing so. Must have been a tough one, for sure, to take out all three of us in a matter of seconds.

Back to the drawing board......
Sorry to hear that billy, maintaining concentration is not an easy task it is :cry:
I saw Pooncer had fallen out of the top 30, so I decided I should do something about it. 😁 He's now taken out NM Meph, giving him the honor of being my first HC character to make it out of Act 3 NM alive. Durandal finally got started, allowing him to escape from the bottom of the ladder. Laura also got a big boost, she's somewhere in NM now, I forgot about her until I scrolled down my screen to check for level updates. I have way too many characters. Tycho and Phoenix both got minor updates.


I'll be vote 3 for Gabrielle (nepta.)
So many people struggling back in the top 30 means that the will try to kick out others.
That would be me, so I did play a bit to to stay in the top-30 :wink3:

Updates for changed entries and added frenzy barb.
*Phanata was killed by normal Duriel and reborn*

I have to awake my weakened skill on HC, too much SC make your sense loose...
I'm thinking to list her on the SPUMF tourney too.

g luck n wish me one 😃
-sal
Adding a TS ninjasin. Updated other entries.
character name: Phanata (clvl14)
Character build: Hybridzon
Last seen: Monastery gate
Weapon: white javelin
merc: Amplisa the cold (I hope she can cast amplify 😁)

Phanata was raised twin but separated with her sister. Her sister was sent to the rogue encampment while she stays aside the amazon river. A messager arrived to amazon zone, badly wounded, she didn't make it pass the night but managed to hand the letter to the queen. Phanata asked the queen to send her with an army to the Rogue Monastery, "Phanata my dear, we cannot send any reinforcement as our own tribe need tight protection from nearby roaming barbarian, you have to go alone"

At the rogue monastery, dead bodies are everywhere, monsters dead bodies shoot down by Phanata. Phanata is enraged by her sister's death, the journey to rescue turnout to be a journey for revenge.

...

Wow guys... I had great and fun experience with Phanata, with her poison javelin she more than deadly at p8. But I know I will struggle to defeat andariel since she is poison resist, thus I accumulated a lot of reju pot so I can keep up my jab on.
Bloodraven was down at clvl6, thanks to poison javelin.
The wonderful things is that I got:

Seven chipped topaz

Felicitous Ring (from akara)
Fingerprint: 0x1ac7088d
9% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

and...

Preserved Head
Fingerprint: 0xe76e6c01
Adds 2-7 poison damage over 3 seconds
+3 to Skeleton Mastery (Necromancer Only)
+2 to Raise Skeleton (Necromancer Only)
+2 to Bone Armor (Necromancer Only)

I should had entered the SPUMF :rant: :lol:

...

moving server... so here'a the next update:

Andariel thought her poison spray will decimate Phanata in secs but only to realize Phanata is as toxic as herself. Phanata protected herself with some poison length reduce armor, she run thru the spray and stab a poison javelin on Andy's arm. Andy enraged and charged Phatana with berserk, and managed to wound her severely but at the last it is Phanata who look deep into Andy's eyes and thrust a jab attack at her heart.

Phanata bade farewell to rogues and arrived at Lhut Gholein. ATMA greet her and ask for her favor "I lose a sister, I probably know how you feel ATMA", so Radament went down since Phanata's acid poison is too much for radament and his skeletons. "Yes ATMA it is bitter sweet and I find it to be my liking too". ATMA spoke to the whole townsfolk on Phanata's behalf and since then Phanata gain some good previleges.
I have finally found a bit more playing time recently so I have spent a bit of time with a long left char Osteus. Haven't done much with him, but he has reached act2 and lvl 21. Other than that, I have nothing special to report, just a hello to everyone still hanging out on this thread
👋

CB
I'd like permission to join the HC ladder with my entry in Skunkbelly's "It takes all kinds" tourney player, CryoMixalot, a Frostalot. I started him in March. His journey has been well documented in my posts that thread: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=436221. He's currently in Act 1 Hell and finding it slow going at level 77. He's untwinked, of course, and has been playing with the item and stat limitations of the tourney. This is under version 1.11 vanilla.
👋 too crazy_bear, how is it going?
btw I think your previous 'tar is nicer.
goodluck with Osteus.

@purple: I don't know if we may register an already high clvl char, but let the elder say something.
character name: Phanata (clvl26)
Character build: Hybridzon
Last seen: spider cavern
Weapon: replenishing javelin
merc: defensive desert - just got him a razortine

Coupled Slowing effect from cold and cleglaw puncher allow Phanata to slowly kill duriel. The merc was died and ressurected several times. Jehrhyn bade farewell and provided Phanata with some preservatived kind lemon to make sure scurvy aint happen on her way to Kurast.

Entering the jungle a dark wanderer who can't be hurt frustated Phanata, but he suddenly disappeared and left some weaklings walking flesh for barbeque. "smells of jungle, I feel home" Phanata said to herself.
Spiders cavern are greatest fear factor for many girls but for an amazon, certain spider could be a delicious snack especialy the cocoons...

👋 to all
Well, the forum downtime has given me extra time for D2. 😃 I now have my first conqueror, Pooncer. I don't know how he is going to hold up in hell at level 66 (he is /p1 single pass) but at least his resistances (expect poison) are above 50.

I also updated Osteus and Phanata in the table.

Nice find. Now for something similar to drop for me...

Not really played much lately, but my tesladin is in Act 3 and just starting to pick up the pace. I'll post an update when I'm a bit further on.
An update

Player : salvo
Character: Phanata (clvl 27)
Class : Hybridzon (PJ/LF/CS/jab)
Last seen: Flayer Jungle
Status : Alive & vanilla

Weapon : Replenishing Javelin
Damage : Plague Javelin ~1000 over 7 secs
Mercenary: Defensive Desert, weapon : Razortine

Small guys with huge blade scares Phanata a bit but all she need to do is to hide inside her poison cloud.

A slight progress, going to have exam next week and quite attracted by Patrician III, a great trading game.
P8 is no problem but I don't want to spend too much time exploring the whole vast act3 so I lower it to p3 for optimal item drop.

@catty: Thanks for updating me on the table. Btw your new 'tar is your own new artwork too? This one is cool on the degradation but the previous one looks nicer IMO 😃
edit2: or maybe we may see the original (huge mode) one? It might looks better there?

So, it seems we acquired enough votes to join this alluminated gathering: Gabrielle reporting for duty :)
Gabrielle, L87 meteorb sorceress has been taken from us today. She died at the hands of a cursed/might/extra fast wildebeast pack in Lower Kurast. She took with her the only Harlquin's Crest. Condolances can be sent per PM, she'll be mourned and buried in the privacy of the personal RAR crypt. No flowers. Her deeds will be remembered.
RIP Gabrielle. It sucks to lose high level characters.


Pooncer gained another level (not enough to update the table) on his first venture into Hell. He is not amused by the additional life leech penalties.


[OT]
@Salvo: Yup, the new avitar is my creation as well. I did it in Illustrator, which I am finally trying to learn. I did that one for my summer class, and liked it enough that I decided it was time for an avitar change.

Here are full size versions of both:
The New One
The Old One
[/OT]
RIP Gabby

I lose mine at clvl 71 so I probabbly know how U feel, few days of hard work vanish to the air.
That's why I started Phanata, she is not as fragile as a sorc but much slower progress and not efficient for boss run. I'll concentrate her for area run for that's where she is excel (should be) at. LF pawns without synergy while poison meet few immunes, in addition if she managed to find a good spear then Phanata is well rounded char.
Going to start another char any soon?

@catty: while cooler the new looks a bit too dark, I love the previous one dearly, it is so bright and colorful 😃
Gained some levels with my sorc so I felt it was time for an update.
Alas! Lost my tesladin yesterday morning after he got mobbed in the Outer Steppes (maybe had advanced a bit too fast... maybe). Then later while playing the infernosorc she somehow fell as well. I don't quite remember how there, I was trying to watch the highlights of italy - australia in between bouts of D2. I think I'll go back to SC for the time being...
Don't you dare quit on HC! Death, is only the beginning! ^"^
@nepeta: I agree! fun & adrenalin rush factor, HC>SC

Phanata had a cake walk with Mephisto, all she need to do is to dodge the ranged attack and keep throwing toxic javelin.

After released Izual's soul, Phanata proceed and was shocked! She thought those bats will only bite with their vang but surprizingly their vang are also enchanted with electicity. Fortunately she had two rejuvination potion on her belt, otherwise she was a toast.

So far she found 2x civerb shield, 2x artic fur :badteeth:

edit: why puffen is banned? All I can find is he stated jamella.

Continuing WS K runs
pindlerunning
Making hammerdin patriarch
Running nm andy
Continue my kicksin
Frost/fanazealot
Continuing frenzy barb
Continuing fishymancer
Some countess runs

edit: why puffen is banned? All I can find is he stated jamella.
Puffen is taking a little vacation for adding a character with an offensive name and project to the HC ladder. (The post was deleted, since, as I said, the character name was offensive.)

He can put the character back on (but at least for ladder purposes, it must be listed with a more appropriate name) when he returns, even if the character has passed the 50 mark, since he did add him to the ladder.
Okay thanks for clearing things out 😃
So it's a temp ban then? (It says banned under his hame)

Yup.

That goes away when the temp ban is over.

Don't you dare quit on HC! Death, is only the beginning! ^"^
Fine. :undecided: I'll see how the fishy goes then. With the other two being eliminated I should be able to focus on killing him off more effectively now. Though if this carries on much longer the ladder will be filled with my corpses.
With Gabrielle's demise, I found myself bereft of my only Shako, Reaper's and sorc staff (razorswitch), enters Croesa. She's a blizzard sorc, with one, obvious purpose. Now level 24, may she live forever!
It's been a while since, I've been playing, but i finally got the itch and am continuing where I left off... A septavirate. Cryptstalker has been going along well, and I remembered the old ladder was capped at max lvl of 30 for new entries, so here I am at 29 with my fishy. About to go after Meph.
An update:

Player : salvo
Character: Phanata (clvl 35)
Class : Hybridzon (PJ/LF/CS/jab)
Last seen: Arreat's Plateau
Status : Alive & vanilla

Weapon : Replenishing Javelin
Damage : Plague Javelin ~3900 over 10.2 secs
Mercenary: Defensive Desert, weapon : Razortine

D is down, it is fortunately the nearest shrine is a fire resist shrine that I don't have much trouble with him. I lower the player settings to 1 since more life for mr.D makes no diffrence on the difficulty for me to kill him but only takes more time.

But on itemwise, Phanata's luck is terrible, none of any amazon javelin at all, but there's some good amazon spear at least.

Phanata is climbing up on the ladder, I target her to enlist among the top ten 👍

@nepeta and sitro: goodluck with your new char 👋

Well, decided to remake the blizzsorc I'd started in softcore but in hardcore this time. Odd that nepeta pokes me to pick up the HC torch again, and I end up making the same kind of character without knowing.

Doesn't feel like much of a sorceress at the moment. She's got Blood Crescent equipped and the shield and boots of the Hsarus's Defense set. More fun to bash things in at the moment. Will update with the necro and blizzsorc's progress in a bit.

at first glance I thought it was Hrus defense set :lol:

An update:

Player : salvo
Character: Phanata (clvl 42)
Class : Hybridzon (LF/PJ)
Last seen: Rogue Encampment (NM)
Status : Alive & vanilla

Weapon : Replenishing Javelin
Damage : Plague Javelin ~5200 over 10.6 secs
NDE count: 2x
Mercenary: Defensive Desert, weapon : Razortine


At the Arreat's Summit, the Ancients greets Phanata with "A little girl? Muhahahaha... you can run but you can't hide...", "And that's how I'm going to beat you all mighty Ancients" Phanata replied. So that was what happened, all Phanata need to do is to activate her poison cloud and keep running 'till the ancients got tired and gave up.

And Baal...? BAH! His last minion is much scarier :teeth:

This my last report untill next two week coz I'll be concentrating on my exam. Wish me luck on exam and goodluck to you all on your HC effort. 👍

PS: could somebody please update the table for me, it looks dizzy for me to edit it. Thanks.
I'm interested in having CryoMixalot, my entry in Skunkbelly's "It takes all kinds" tourney player join the HC ladder. That tourney is about to wrap up and I'd like to see how far I can get him. He's level 80 presently so I'd need some votes to be allowed to participate here on the HC ladder.

I started him in March when the tourney began. His journey has been well documented in my posts that thread: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=436221&page=5. He's currently in Act 3 Hell and finding it careful going at level 80. He's untwinked and has been playing with the item and stat limitations of the tourney. This is under version 1.11 vanilla.

If I do continue him on the HC ladder, I plan to continue with the equipment limitations of the tourney (started out as 1 item of each kind, from "low quality" to crafted permitted, with progressive "perks" allowing equipment category change) but I may no longer keep the "all stats must be withing 10 points of each other" restriction, as that has led to a huge investment in (useless) energy and a corresponding reduction in safety from limited vitality and dexterity investment.
I'm back with a new sept that I'll actually do since I recently restarted and my only mf'er is sc. Since I have irregular access to the internet and its summer vacation I'm hoping my characters will move up quickly.
Renar bit it in the tounement of the ring a while ago. I also last my Zon, Faith, last night. She was in the CS while fighting some Balrogs when she got hit with Lower resists. I knew what had happened and what would probably follow (firey death) immediately but she was dead before she had taken two steps.

She will be replaced shortly. Also, Necky, Hope, and Deathwish have all made progress lately but I don't remember exactly where they are.

That was what almost happen to me too, got cornered at the right wing of CS. In case the the balrog pack boss is conviction aura enchanted, the only way is to TP out then use the WP to get back to war zone safely. I don't think it is cheesy since at P8+untwinked+HC, the surviving chance is too small.
Goodluck with your new zon 👍

Took down Baal on /p8. Done everything except big D on p8 (Lightning hose is too annoying for my skellie army). I'm thinking of either doing a fury zon or a multizon for that part of the sept. Any suggestions?
Updated with my latest progress. Put Hades back in the table (he was there originally, took him out when I tried to quit, now managed to get him a bit further).

Hades is a my necro done in the fishymancer style. Last time on here he was basking in the desert sun - he's been shoved through acts 2 and 3 today. Just shattered a shiny stone from the chest of a demon and found a Tir rune inside (translation: hellforge quest done) Tomorrow he wants to kill Diablo.

Reznap is new here, a blizzard sorc who took down Andariel earlier. Not much of a blizzard sorc however - she has yet to learn the skill her build's named after. Pitiful.
asdf_LOLUSUX (inspired from the PK guide ;D) killed nm andy and progressed to level 53 so that she now can wear a treatchery wire fleece 👍. I had forgot to update it here in the list but I decided to make her a kicker instead of a TS ninja after finding shadow dancers. She's using IK gloves/belt/boots combo atm and it's OK (well, I'm on p8 so :p ), it will be upgraded to Sandstorm Trek at level 64 and shadow dancers at 71! I haven't been using ds a lot yet but I've got it mostly for the CE atm, which doesn't do much on p8. No problems at all so far, cloak of shadows <3

I also added asdf_HCBaal, which will be a poison and bone necro, using bone spear probably.

I'm thinking of either doing a fury zon or a multizon for that part of the sept. Any suggestions?
A fury zon would probably be easier because it's less item dependant, but be sure to pick the one you would enjoy the most!¨

Edit!!: I almost forgot :p
Started playing on an untwinked bear dr00d yesterday, got to level 16 or so and past the forgotten tower. Can't remember the exact name though :embarassed:

Edit again: Added hydra/FO sorc.
Took Xia through act2 and I'm currently in Kurast Bazaar. It wasn't a NDE but Sarine came on pretty fast and took out my merc and SM before I knew what hit me.

I regrouped and rained down a few meteors to show her who's boss. I'm really suprised at how much I'm loving this character. PS is one of the most fun skills I've played with and the damage is keeping up for the most part. I'm on players 1 to be safe and my gear is ok (not really) but I've been fighting with AR issues. She is the first melee char that hasn't been using the act2 blessed aim merc and its been tough. I've have the angelic armor and ring , sanders boots, and a rare claw that rolled fools mod and socketed with "eth" to keep my percent 85 and up but not for long. The angelic armor has got to go. Without my defiance merc monster would have an 80% chance to hit. I need something with defense badly. My whopping 23 DR is the only thing saving me from the flayers. Time to go look up RW's.
I've been playing a bit with asdf_HCZON, decided to make her an untwinked strafer. level 13 atm and going melee until I can lay my hands on a good bow, or maybe get a desert mercenary.
Currently wearing a gambled kite shield, broad sword and scale mail. (a little cut and paste there :wink3: )
Merc bugging :S
Any ideas for a backup to strafe? =/ (PI's)
Maybe the only solution is just to live with it 👅

btw, while still meleeing, should I go 2h or 1h shield like I do atm?
Well, necromancer made it past Diablo. I'd like to say he did it fine, but at /p3 it was a bit of hassle. That pink hose of his takes down my skellies just fine. However, he's fairly prejudiced and I used that against him. Now see here, standard Nightfish protocol would see a big ol' bad guy and use decrepify. But the first time I tried that and it didn't do much. But I noticed that when I recast the golem, Big D immediately turned on him and prioritized taking him out.

Diablo is golemist!

So after raising more skeletons, the approach became to focus on raising a golem, waiting for Diablo to strike it down, then raising another one behind him. Still took a while, but did the trick in the end.

Diablo dropped this, a staff which I think would be fairly nice for a Blizzard sorc:

Code:
Bramble Gnarl
Long Staff
Two-Hand Damage: 2 to 8
Durability: 21 of 30
Required Level: 30
Staff Class - Normal Attack Speed
Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
Item Level: 40
Fingerprint: 0xe6ad0a6d
+23 to Mana
Adds 1-151 lightning damage
[B]20% Faster Cast Rate
+2 to Blizzard (Sorceress Only)[/B]
Ignore Target Defense
150% Damage to Undead
[B]+2 to Cold Skills (Sorceress Only)[/B]
Level 1 Blizzard (29/33 Charges)
He also gave me a similar orb, although slightly less nice. I've kept the orb for my own blizzsorc, since she's being built with a shield and max blocking in mind. However, if anyone wants the staff, then say so. I'd rather it was put to use rather than it sit around with me while my sorc uses the 'lite' orb version. Vanilla item, need I say it's 1.11 and HC?
