Announcing the "I Got the Melee Blues" Tournament: the sequel to Rare Pleasure

This is the follow-up to the Rare Pleasure Tournament, and although it may seem easier for characters starting out, I think it's far more diabolical in the long run. It will start almost immediately after the end of the Rare Pleasure tournament, and will last until August 31.

"I GOT THE MELEE BLUES" TOURNAMENT

This one is pretty simple: you must play a melee character, and you can only equip blue magic items. Here are the complete rules.

RULES, Part One: characters

1. HC characters only.

2. You must get all WPs and complete all quests before moving to the next act. "Completing a quest" is defined as turning the box on the quest window to gray. There are no exceptions to this rule: both of the pertinent act 5 quests (socketing quest and naming quest) must be used before proceeding to the next difficulty.

3. MP is forbidden.

4. All characters must use melee skills: no ranged attacks of any sort are permitted. If that isn't clear enough, here are some elaborations:

a. The following sorceress skills may be used: Warmth, Enchant, all three Masteries, all three Cold Armors, Energy Shield, Thunderstorm, Teleport. All others are banned.

b. Amazons: all passive and magic skills and all spear skills are permitted. All bow, crossbow and javelin skills are banned.

c. Necromancers: Bone Armor, Poison Dagger, Bone Wall, Bone Prison, Golem Mastery, all Golems, Summon Resist, and all Curses may be used. All other skills (including skeletons and revives) are banned.

d. Druids: Cyclone Armor, all Summons, and all Shape-Shifting skills are permitted. All other elemental skills are banned.

e. Assassins: All Martial Arts skills and all Shadow Skills are permitted, as is Blade Shield. All other traps are forbidden.

f. Paladins: all skills are permitted except for Blessed Hammer, Holy Bolt, and Fist of the Heavens (except as synergies).

g. Barbarians may not use Throwing Mastery or Double Throw. Singing barbs (any barbarian using War Cry as his main attack skill) are banned; however, War Cry itself may be used for its stunning effect. To prevent abuse, you may have a combined maximum of 30 hard skill points in War Cry and its synergies (Howl, Taunt, and Battle Cry). Good stun length is thereby possible, but the damage will be weak.

5. It is permissible to place a point into a banned skill if it is a prerequisite for another skill. It is also permissible to put points into banned skills if they are synergies for permitted skills. You're on your honor not to use banned skills.

6. Any act 2 or act 5 mercenary may be used, but they must adhere to the equipment rules (stated below). You may use an act 1 mercenary in act 1 normal difficulty only; if she dies before reaching act 2, you may not resurrect her. Upon reaching act 2, you must replace your mercenary with an act 2 melee mercenary.

7. If your character dies at any point, you are eliminated from the tournament.


RULES, Part Two: equipment

1. Untwinked. You may mule items off to your other non-tournament characters. Otherwise, no use of ATMA is permitted.

2. Your character may only use BLUE items (i.e., normal “magic†items). If you do not have a blue item for a particular equipment slot, you may not have an item in that slot. The following exceptions (and *only* these exceptions) apply to the "blues only" rule:

a. You may use the weapon that your character is generated with, until you find your first blue weapon. Upon finding your first blue melee weapon of any sort (even if you cannot yet use it due to item requirements), you must discard your "birth weapon" NOTE: If you cannot use the item due to class restrictions (i.e., you find an assassin katar, and you're playing a barbarian), this rule does not apply.

b. Quest-related items may NOT be used for anything other than their intended purpose (i.e., smashing the compelling orb or soulstone).

c. You may shop and gamble as much as you wish.

d. Potions, scrolls, keys and tomes are permitted with the exception of throwing potions, which are banned.

3. Sockets in items can be filled with BLUE JEWELS or SAPPHIRES only (after all, sapphires are blue!). No exceptions. Socketable quest reward items (barb rescue runes, hellforge gems/runes, etc.) may NOT be used (unless, of course, they are sapphires¦ mule them off, if they're worthwhile. If you use sapphires in a socket, they may be of any quality.

4. All charms MAY be used, with the exception of Gheed's Fortune (which isn't blue).

5. You can re-run areas, kill bosses, etc., as much as you desire.

6. The various quests that generate rare items as rewards (Charsi, Ormus, Anya) are even more useless in this tournament than they are in standard play: since they are all rare, they may not be equipped (though you're welcome to mule any worthwhile results off to other characters).

7. You may use the Horadric Cube to modify your blue magic items as much as you wish (i.e., three perfect gem recipe, weapon re-rolling recipes, three amulets > one ring, etc.). All recipes are permitted, so long as the end result is a blue magic item.

8. You may not use charges of banned skills from items. You also may not use banned skills given by item bonuses (i.e., a staff with +2 to Frozen Orb). You may use the item, however, as long as you don't use the banned skill.

9. Items with "Chance to Cast" mods, even for banned skills, ARE permitted (I don't think these will be much of a factor, given that unique and set items are banned, and CTC mods tend to be very weak).

10. Unlike the "Rare Pleasure" tournament, trading is not permitted.

11. As stated above, only melee weapons may be used. Ranged weapons that can be used as melee weapons (javelins, throwing weapons) may be used as melee weapons only. Bows and crossbows may be used by werewolves and werebears, but ONLY while they are in were-form (since in shifted form, they are treated as melee weapons).

OTHER DETAILS

1. This is a quick tournament. It will begin on Friday, July 1, at noon Eastern Standard Time. It will end at 7:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, August 31.

2. Players must make an update upon the completion of Normal difficulty, NM difficulty, and upon the completion of each act in Hell difficulty. Of course, everyone is welcome to post more frequently, if they desire.

3. Scoring will be determined as follows:

a. 2 points will be awarded for each quest completed.

b. 1 point will be awarded for each WP gathered.

c. 3 points will be awarded for killing the Cow King in each difficulty.

d. 1 point will be *subtracted* for each character level gained (yes, a negative score is possible).

e. Achieving Guardian status gives a bonus of 20 points.

f. In the highly unlikely event of a tie, the winner will be determined by a forum vote… whoever is democratically determined to have the lamest gear will win the tie.

4. THE PRIZE: The winner will receive an ATMA stash containing the proceeds from 100 hardcore Hell Mephisto runs, to be completed by my sorceress, who wears about 400% MF. So the prize could be great, or it could be lots of breast plates. You'll have to win to find out!

5. To enter, add your name and character class to the sign-up table below. Remember, no starting until noon on Friday, July 1. You may change your character class up to the starting moment of the tournament; after that, no changes to your character class may be made.

I realize it's probably pointless, but the Charsi quest must be used before leaving Act I.

I'm tentatively thinking about a paladin for the tourney. I just need a snazzy name first. Main skill: HF of course! Why not share the blues?

edit: Added name. Bluedgeon because they'll be blue as I bludgeon them to death! Horrible puns! :lol:
Sounds like fun! Think Pallys have a serious advantages with the current skills allowed, so i'll make 1. :) I'm thinking an avenger would be fun, but i might go for a pure holy shocker if i feel like it.
Oh, and dr00ds have many standard skill setups still available, so you might get a mix of druids and pallys, along with the odd crazy enchantress.

Never played an Enchantress before, never gotten past A2 Norm with a HC character, so I figured why not play one for an act or so?

Maybe fb meant to put Level 00, since the char hasn't been created yet.
I am so in.

I don't know how to add my name to the table, though, so could someone please do it for me (or tell me how do it myself)?

I will be playing a Werebear. Not sure exactly what skills I will use, but they will all be melee, of course. EDIT: The character's name shall be AllBlues.

Rules question. Although the rules are extremely clear, I'd like to ask in case it wasn't considered. Are there any allowances being made for those OK's and their IM curses? That area could get tedious for a melee only build with no safe alternate skill.

The more I think about this tourney, the more devious and challenging the idea sounds.

1) I think for those who make it to Hell and even to NM, resists will be a HUGE problem. The best blue items give mediocre resistances at best, and against only one element at a time in most cases. Encountering a Gloams or Beetles will be VERY painful.

2) Magic Find will not be that prized a modifier at all. Many items tend to drop blue without the aid of MF anyway.

Aded myself. I hope it will be fun.
OK, me too. I'll stick with a druid, like in the rare pleasure tourney, but a wolf this time.

I'm in.
The more I think about this tourney, the more devious and challenging the idea sounds.

1) I think for those who make it to Hell and even to NM, resists will be a HUGE problem. The best blue items give mediocre resistances at best, and against only one element at a time in most cases. Encountering a Gloams or Beetles will be VERY painful.
;) Lighting resist outfit, fire resist outfit, etc, etc get the idea? Only problem is lack of storage space, if I remember correctly the space is 8x12 right? - 4 + 12 with a horadric cube if its in your stash. =D Things are going to be interesting to say the least. Slow and safe will win this race.

Prismatic amulets. Ruby/Sapphire/Amber rings. You might get above 0% res...for one element :D

Assassin claw block might become popular for this tourney. 50%+ block all anyone? If anyone chooses an assassin, that is.

Exaclty just enough to hit the enemy with some curses, run for you life, hit them with your sword a few times, and then run away and heal. Hell is going to be pain, Diablo and Lister especially *if* we make it there. =D

*edit* well actually pretty much every monster in hell is going to be a pain =D

Glad to see that people are interested in this one... and that people are already seeing how hard this oughta be :D

Regarding Oblivian Knights and Iron Maiden: Nope, there is no exception allowed for dealing with IM. You'll have to figure that one out yourself, within the context of the rules. For most classes, there are easy ways around this particular challenge. And if that fails, you can always :creep: and/or flee.

A tip for iron maiden if you are brave, lure the knights away and charge the caster, instant decr. is cast on you overridding your iron, however then you are slowed and the knights are closing in and the casters run off... so you might get iron cast right back on you, pretty much there is no easy way to deal with it =D Unless someone else knows and would like to share =D

'Zerk for barbs. Psychic Hammer/Mind Blast for assassins. Thunderstorm. To name the "perfect" (no IM residual) ones.

Anything that relies mostly on magic damage is safe. As in 95% magic, 5% physical. I'll leave it up to the player to determine their "safe" skills, but everyone has them.

@Skunkbelly: PH/MB are shadow skills, not traps, and are ranged. You may want to consider forbidding them. Unless you think removing MB as crowd control is too painful. I don't think so, because of Cloak of Shadows.

My first tourney :)

See how I'll do with a dragon claw sin.. not that many sins, I noticed o_O with CoS and MB allowed (so far), should be somewhat easy manageing crowds.

Yeah, that's right. Nuff said, I think.

Tourneys aren't really meant to be "won." Yeah, they have a winner but typically a tourney ends without anybody defeating Hell Baal (or Cows).

Edit: Arrrgh! Curses! Somebody fix this U&^T thing for me, and please post my updates, since no matter what I will mess this thing up every time I try.

I'll give it a shot. Shouldn't be as frustrating as my Rare Pleasure Hydra-Sorc. I should post her progress...

Oh, I'm a Classic player, so I guess I'll be doing this non-scored, exhibition only.
I've been really busy with RL as of late, but I've got some vacation time coming up, so I'm in. Not sure on the name yet, but it will be a fury werewolf. Jakabi Greenleaf sounds like a good name. Druid like, and kinda tree hugging hippie style.

@Kool TBD means To Be Determined I believe. TBA means to be announced so it makes sense thats what it is.

@Ashmer Amadeus: Oh okay then thanks =D

Just adding Ashmer and Kirby to the list =D

I'm still enjoying the rare pleasure tourney, but I'll be in for this one too. Character yet to be determined, though a spearzon is tempting just to be different. So many choices....

@hiedran, I don't think either PH or MB does enough damage to worry about. If you looked at attacks that do ranged damage it would be too limiting ex zon's charged strike and lightning strike jump to mind, but they are really melee skills because of the way they are used.

why not - i haven't done HC, tourneys, or a pal before, so i'll see if I can make act2. Don't know what build i'll use, but I might try a charadin since they don't appear to be mentioned yet.

... and the -0 is intentional to see if I ever make it into positive numbers. I'm setting my over/under for final score at -9

also, was /players mentioned? I'll read the rules again, but I don't think they were. Finally, there are some sets with a blue color scheme - not that I expect to find any - but should they be allowed?

Personally I don't think that should count since most of the other items names are all blue, minus sapphire but its the only gem that is blue.

However this is skunkbelly's call, oh and added crazy_bear to the list

I'll join in as well, don't know about build yet. This is seeming to get more entries than kool69's color tourney, and being in a bigger tourney will be fun. I like the point system too - losing points for levelling is awesome.

I don't think this was mentioned in the rules, but I'm assuming there's no MPing allowed, right?

Does the first waypoint of the act count as a point? I think it would be easier to count it, and also to count level 1 as a negative point - so a newly rolled character is still score = 0.

It is getting more people than the colour tourney but thats my fault, I don't think MP'ing is allowed... I thought I read that somewhere, and I dunno... we've all been putting the starting points as 0 (well except for fb but... that doesnt really matter) I was thinking it was 0 points because it said "for every level gained you lose a point, and the starting wp wouldn't count... but I don't really know, another question for skunkbelly.

I don't think this was mentioned in the rules, but I'm assuming there's no MPing allowed, right?
Rule #3: No MP'ing allowed

Does the first waypoint of the act count as a point? I think it would be easier to count it, and also to count level 1 as a negative point - so a newly rolled character is still score = 0.

that makes sense to me, but as kool said, it's skunk's call. To be honest, if it's not a point and if I make it to to the next act I'm likely to forget & total that into my points. oops

I haven't played a tourny in a long time. This one sounds like fun i'll join. I can't decide what to play yet but I'm in.

Okay, well it's been awhile since I've actively played D2, but this seems like a good way to jump back in! Sign me up, im going to be a Holy Freeze paladin named "Blue" (like the guy from Old School! See?! I'm not unoriginal!) And I plan on winning this tournament... if it kills me, so out the way please :)

Umm...kool and I are not on the table right now.

I'm also changing my character's name to OxDEADBEEF for no reason.

After some thought, I decided against a Zerker for my first HC char - will be going for an iron barb instead (yeah, yeah, I'm not the only one, but I could think of surprisingly few melee builds that appealed to me :p)

edit time expired, sorry
so
can we create prismatic amulets using the cube and pgems?

Umm...kool and I are not on the table right now.

All cube recipes are available as long as the outcome is a magic item, so yep, i presume so.

Thought I would join this tournament, cause it's been a while and this one doesn't look like I'll last long.

My enchantress is called purple cause that's what happens when you mix blue and red

Nice concept! I may enter (haven´t decided yet). I still don´t like limited tournament times, and in this tournament I really wish we were allowed to use ATMA as an unlimited stash, so we can save all those chippies for weapon rerolling. With the other (quite severe) limitations on the characters, I think we need those gems...I know that we can rerun areas looking for gems, but I don´t allow myself that. Is there a specific reason I need to be forced to sell surplus gems? Isn´t it hard enough already?

Haha, the imbue quest will only be good for making some money... :lol:

Very few runes will have any sort of use in this tournament. I can only think of Ral, Ort, Hel, Eld and Amn.

Does the first waypoint of the act count as a point? I think it would be easier to count it, and also to count level 1 as a negative point - so a newly rolled character is still score = 0.
Yes, this is the way it works.

Regarding set, unique, rare items that are "blue" when you look at them in your inventory: not allowed. What needs to be blue (with the exception of sapphires) is the FONT for the item name :)

Yes, you can create prismatic amulets (etc.). Any cube recipe that results in a "blue" magic item is valid for the tournament.

You can play on any /players setting you wish.

Re: Psychic Hammer, etc. Some skills have been permitted, even though they are technically ranged skills, or skills that don't require you to hit stuff. These skills are mostly crowd control skills, which is why they are permitted. Also, they do neglible damage. I don't think FB's psychic hammer assy would stand a chance in this tournmant ;)

@ jiansonz: I think you have a good point. See my next post.

RULE CHANGE - hopefully the only one

OK, jiansonz has a good point regarding the quantities of gems that might be helpful here. But I'm not willing to make things too easy on everyone. So here's the rule change:

EXCEPTION TO TWINKING RULE: You may keep an ATMA stash for three types of items ONLY: chipped, flawed, and normal gems.

This means, of course, that flawless and perfect gems must be held either in your character's inventory or in your town stash. This will make it easy to save chippies, and easier to cube up gems... but it still make it hard to hang on to high-grade gems for long periods of time, so that the perfect gem recipes and flawless gem recipes will still be somewhat challenging.

Seems balanced, allowing gems to be used realistically for recipes, but not abused.

FYI... for those who don't know all of the recipes, or aren't sure which ones are permitted, etc., here's a list:

Cubing rejvenation or antidote potions is permitted.

Upgrading runes is permitted (though you may only use runes in the recipes below, and never in sockets).

Upgrading gems is permitted.


Item Recipes:

4 Health Potions (of any type) + Ruby (any type) + Magical Sword = A Magic Sword of the Leech

3 Magic Rings = 1 Random Magic Amulet

3 Magic Amulets = 1 Random Magic Ring

3 Perfect Gems (of any type) + 1 Magic Item = 1 New Random Magic Item of the Same Type

6 Perfect Gems (1 of each type) + 1 Amulet (any quality) = Prismatic Amulet

1 Magic Ring + 1 Perfect Emerald + 1 Antidote Potion = 1 Jade Ring

1 Magic Ring + 1 Perfect Ruby + 1 Exploding Potion = 1 Garnet Ring

1 Magic Ring + 1 Perfect Topaz + 1 Rejuvenation Potion = 1 Coral Ring

1 Magic Ring + 1 Perfect Sapphire + 1 Thawing Potion = 1 Cobalt Ring

1 Magic Shield (any type) + 1 Spiked Club (any quality) + 2 Skulls (any quality) = Magic Shield of Spikes

Diamond (any quality) + 1 Staff (any type and quality) + 1 Kris (any quality) + 1 Belt (any type and quality) = Savage Polearm Class Weapon

3 Standard Gems (normal) and 1 Socketed Weapon (Any Type) = 1 Socketed Magic Weapon (of same type)

3 Chipped Gems + 1 Magic Weapon = Socketed Magic Weapon

3 Flawless Gems + 1 Magic Weapon = Socketed Magic Weapon

1 Ort Rune + Weapon = Fully Repaired Weapon

1 Ral Rune + Armor = Fully Repaired Armor

1 Hel Rune + Scroll of Town Portal + Any Socketed Item = Unsocket that item

1 Ort Rune + 1 Chipped Gem (any kind) + Weapon = Fully Repaired and Recharged Weapon

1 Ral Rune + 1 Flawed Gem (any kind) + Armor = Fully Repaired and Recharged Armor



What this means, basically, is that the only runes with any value in this tournament are Ort, Ral, and Hel (and, of course, the runes needed to cube up to those runes). And really, since the only use for Orts and Rals is repairing items, the only truly useful rune here is Hel. Ouch :D

There are two more recipes that may be of use (and thus, two more runes that can be useful) if you happen to find a non-magical weapon (crude or standard) of a type you like to reroll (e.g. a Colossus Blade, War Pike or so). In order to get the rerolling 'rolling' you will have to make it socketed first, so you can use the Standard gem recipe on it, making it magical.

1 non-magical weapon, 1 Ral rune, 1 Amn rune, 1 perfect amethyst -> Sockets the weapon


And if you start with a Crude weapon, you need to fix that first, if you want the socketing recipe to work:

1 low quality weapon, 1 Eld rune, 1 chipped gem -> Normals the weapon


Are these two recipes allowed? The outcome is not a magical item in the first (or even the second) step, but they allow you to make it magical with the '3 regular gems + socketed weapon' recipe.

Thanks, jiansonz: those two recipes are indeed allowed. Somehow those two slipped by me. :worship:

I'll try this one out for my first tourney. I will try a MA Assassin named BigTarget. Should get me killed fairly quickly, but I'll have fun doing it!

Greyeagle and I posted at almost the same time yesterday, and my entry apparently got lost. Here it is again.

I will enter with a Martial Arts assassin named Aimee.
Focus on skills is not completely decided yet, but I know I will use a shield.

Merc is not decided either, but I´ll probably use a barbarian. Defiance merc in Normal Act 2-Act 4.

1 low quality weapon, 1 Eld rune, 1 chipped gem -> Normals the weapon
Know that this recipe lowers the item level to 1.

Found it out the hard way, tried trading it, and got some feedback :)

Dunno if it's worth re-rolling an item with ilvl 1...?

All cube recipes are available as long as the outcome is a magic item, so yep, i presume so.
:lol: @ jicama's name.
Just remebered a thing...can we reroll items with the three pgems method?

*edit* didnt see..thanks for the help ;)

Yes

10 characters

FYI... for those who don't know all of the recipes, or aren't sure which ones are permitted, etc., here's a list:

....

3 Perfect Gems (of any type) + 1 Magic Item = 1 New Random Magic Item of the Same Type

.....

I'm going to do a kicksin

Random question that doesnt belong here: Is there any easy way to get the code? I quote the previous one and just edit my stuff in, but then I have to guess the number of spaces inbetween by 'Previewing Post' about 10 times to get it right.

I find the best way is to copy the whole code box from the main thread view, and just add to code tags around it. that way everything is automatically displayed correctly, so you dont ahve to guess your spaces, you just match it up as you see it.

Gonna try that next time

Know that this recipe lowers the item level to 1.

Found it out the hard way, tried trading it, and got some feedback :)

Dunno if it's worth re-rolling an item with ilvl 1...?

Yes it is. The chipped/regular/flawless gems recipes sets the ilvl to 25 or 30 anyway, That doesn´t matter either, since I am usually hoping for a Cruel elite (hopefully with a good suffix and 2 sockets :D ) with these recipes. Any weapon with a qlvl 75 or more (the high-end elites) can get Cruel with these recipes (well, providing the weapon is a type that supports the +% damage affixes. Wands, orbs and staves don´t)

I copy and paste the text into notepad, line it all up there then post it back in. Makes it real easy.

As for my char, I've decided that I will try an Assassin, since I don't play them very often. She'll be heavy on shadow skills for crowd control, and the rest I'll make up as I go along.

I thought I should add that the "I resemble that!" line was a tribue to Foghorn Leghorn, everyone's favorite Southern rooster :p
"I say, I resemble that remark!"



(I hope that was the intent anyway... and even if not, Foghorn has said it before!)

I think I mite make this my first tourny, bluemind the tesladin. Can someone put me in the box, Ive got no idea how do do it.

yeah, you're welcome, whatever means that you said :)

@martinkingss: "blue jewels" means that the name of the jewel is printed in blue. That the jewel is a magic item, as opposed to a "rare" or "unique" jewel (both of which are not allowed).

Given that the tourny hasn't started, can I change my charicter from Jakabi Greenleaf the Werewolf Druid to Roland the Holy Freeze Pally? Done some thinking, and I've got a few ideas on the pally.

You should literally throw it back and play Classic!

I'm brand new to the single player forumn but may I still join?

I haven't played a strictly melee character since the first days of the 1.10 patch on the ladder and I'd like to try it out.

if you don't mind a SP newbie please add me to the list (undetermined character type)

No problem, Ter, just let us know when you pick a build, and we'll add you into the table.

cool name, how did you get the Jarvis part? because my geo teacher is named Mr. Jarvis :p

Actually, I was watching this eating competition thing, and supposedly the best eater in America is named Ed " Cookie " Jarvis, so I really had no name to use for my character, so I picked that. =)

Wolron (BluePoker) Accepts the Challenge

I will be playing with BluePoker, an Amazon. I have never tried a spear Amazon, but this looks like a good opportunity. I have hopes that my mercenary and my Valkarie (if I last long enough to summon her) will do most of the dirty work.

I would appreciate it if Skunkbelly would please add me to the table. 👍

cool, too bad that eater isnt my teacher, that would have been pretty sweet

Ahhh this beating normal thing so I can play HC is killing me! I started my char yesterday and I was mowing everything over till I got to act 4. Stupid whatever those things are that do that flamethrower thing owns me hardcore.

You don't have to beat SC to start a HC char if you've got ATMA.

When you open ATMA, go to Utility > New Character. You should see a little checkbox for hardcore. Click that.

I used that when I had to reinstall but didn't get to save my chars and got to start playing HC immediately.

So thaaat's how you do it.. =P Thanks alot.

This sounds like a great idea, I'm in.

Like someone else mentioned, I'm too much of a newb to figure out the table, so I would appreciate it if someone else did it for me.

@GodofWar: Your character's name should be PokingIsGrood since Grood is Great and Good, two modifiers in one word instead of just one. =D

Added Ter, Wolron, and GodofWar

I guess since no one else seems to have chosen one yet (they stink, eh?), i'll stick with my original plan of a Chargadin.

OK, looking over this table, I see lots of assassins, and only one Necro. Which ought to tell me something :D. But see, the thing is, I've never played a meleemancer, and I've played too many assassins. So I'll die fast, but that's OK ;)

Since I pretty much rocked the rare tournament (well.. at least I'm leading the dead from page 3 orso :D ) I'll enter this tounrament.. I wasn't sure at first, but I'll give it a shot. This time with an assy, another different char then a barb, but I have to get out more huh? :) I'll probably lean heavily on the shadow side but maybe throw in some MA too.

Well, this is gonna be my first tourny. I'm pretty rusty, so I don't expect to win, but I'm gonna try to have some fun. :) I have a special strategy in mind, so hopefully I get to at least a high enough level to see if the build in my head is practical.

Yay fun!

Alright, I'm in. Will be my first HC char ever, wish me luck. I decided that a Lightning Strike 'zon should be doable.

After some playtesting this weekend, I decided that an enchantress without crushing blow is going to be way too slow. So instead I am going with a lightning zon. Should be more fun, and I tend to do better with them.

Hello everyone, I just signed up for the forums to join some of these tournaments and this one seems like fun. (I read through the rare pleasure tourney posts). Wizardhawk_blue will be either a necro, frenzy barb, or spearzon, i'm not sure yet. I'll update in a day or two once I make up my mind for sure. Look forward to competing with you guys and hopefully i'll live past act 2 normal :lol: :D :lol:

Artemis found himself outside a small camp of what seemed sisters of the sightless eye. Sightless all right... It always amazed him how they would refuse to acknowledge the great dragon and the balance he brought to the world. Sigh, which reminded him of those fools the paladins... He wouldn't even start on that subject... Fools with their blessings and "holy" might...

Loud voices emanating from the camp disturbed his thoughts and drew him near. He heard assassins, barbarians, sorceresses, amazons, druids, and *hiss* paladins... Aparantly they were waiting for a leader figure named "skunkbelly" to come out and annouce something important. Against his better judgement Artemis slipped into the camp.

Not long after he had stepped into the camp a necromancer similar to himself stepped into the light of the campfire. "Ahem," skunkbelly said clearing his throat,"this will be the Melee Blues Tournament, a sequel to the Rare Pleasure Tournament" The large group started clapping and cheering; Artemis leaned in and listened closer. "Okay, this one is pretty simple, you must play a melee character, and you can only equip blue magic items. Here are the complete rules." He said passing out pamphlets, "Sign up over here on this sheet, the tournament when I give the signal."

Artemis looked upon the pamphlet. "What insane fool would take on a challege to beat down the minions of hell with only a stick? And a magical stick at that?!" he said to himself. He looked up and surveyed the crowd. Then he saw them. Legendary heros from all across the sanctuary had gathered here to take part in this test of skill. He picked out FartingBob, one of the great hero's he had read about in his school books back at the acadamy that had went to hell itself only killing monsters with the wooden leg of a child. Barbaric but yet awe-inspiring. Oh and there was Jiansonz who had slain the legions of hell as an amazon only using a stave.. Artemis was truely stunned by the people who surrounded him.

He ran up quickly to the scroll where adventurers where signing up. He knew he might not have the skill of some of these great hero's but he would show them who he was. Especially those foul paladins. And so Artemis sat down and started studing his old school book The Tao of Poison by Bkelly waiting for signal to start the tournament...

*copies kool's idea of story, and is also bored*
One day, there was a Mr barbarian and a Mrs assassin. They got it on 1 night and 9 months later, they had a little baby boy, and they called him Bluetit for no apparent reason.
However, when he was 3, bluetit met the wicked witch of the west, and she put a curse on him. He could not hold anything unless it was magic, and also could not hold the more rare items that he may find on his travels.

Then 1 day Mr barbarian and mrs assassin died after killing baal for the 523th time, and Bluetit was born. He had inhereted his daddy's melee abilities, but also had his mothers speed and her abilityu to control those around her.

Bluetit went and trained in the art of the paladin, and over time he learnt to use swords and maces with great precision, and also had learnt how to channel his energy into 3 forms of attack, in fire, lightning and cold, he new nothing could withstand his beatings. But he was stuck with only being able to use those magic items, while many others would go onto use much grander things, with much better results, but Bluetit fought on, and would not give up, until Baal was dead (3 times) and he had kicked skunkbelly's ass.

Ogg stumbled out of Gheed's tent with bloody knuckles and a drunken grin. "Teach that creepy bastard to swindle Ogg," he mumbled to himself. Continuing his shambling through the rogue camp, Ogg stumbled into a large group of people, who semmed rather excited about something.
"Watch it, moron!"
"Get off my foot!"
"You Barbarians are so smelly!"
Ogg became infuriated at the barrage of slander. "RRRRR!! Ogg smash!" he growled.
However, before he could act, he had a pamphlet shoved into his hands. Making out the word "tournament," he eagerly read on.

sixteen hours later

Ogg was very excited about this new tournament, having just finished the pamphlet. He promptly rushed to the signup sheet and scrawled "Ogg" as best he could with blood from his knuckles. He even had to reopen his scabs.
"Ogg teach them to make fun of Ogg. Ogg teach them ALL!"

After spending a long weekend thinking about it I've decided to try out a Paladin

My very first Diablo II character was a completely mangled paladin that I gave up on once he hit nightmare and I haven't really played one since then.

So I figure 4ish years later is a good time to try again :)

Blue Shadow will be an Avenger I think.

I can't wait to start

I have thought about it and have decided i'm going to go with a Lightning Strike Amazon for Wizardhawk_blue. I played a spearzon way back in 1.08 and early 1.09 and it was fun, so i'ma give it another go now with synergies.

Artemis the poor misguided fool. What chance would a lowly, death-worshiping necromancer stand against a nobly, holy person like myself. For those of you who don't know me, and I belive that to be all the heathens gathered around this campfire, my name is Roland. I am a paladin. The most holy order of men. Trained in the arts of Holy Freeze I shall leave all these creatins in my wake. Having recived my phamplet and reviewed it, I looked around. Some lumbering hulk with bloody knuckles was trying to read the phamplet, and looked to be having a hard time. It seems this "Orrg" won't be much competition. Bluetit, though having a horrible name, was a paladin like myself. Said something about being an avenger. Harnessing the powers of fire, cold and lightning. A good idea, though a jack of all trades is a master of none. Aimee is a black robed assassin, and cold hearted by the look of it. I frown on the path she has taken, though I believe she shall provide the biggest challange. Signing my name with a flourish, I promised myself I would best everyone here. Beware sanctuary, for should this tourny ever start (God forbid this Skunkbelly allow it to start early) I shall smite all that stand in my way.

Please note:

All of this is fictional. I doubt I shall make it past that killer worm at the end of Act II Normal. No offense is intended to those mentioned, however I believe it makes for a good story.

@ Kool, FBob, Jainsonz and Wonko, your royalty checks are in the mail.

With a hurt foot and a foul smell in his nostrils, Artemis limped over to a more favorable spot outside the mass of people to catch up on his reading. Then he heard that aweful paladin, standing there mono-logging on about how great paladinhood was and how he would crush all these creatins that surrounded him... Roland was his name, the true essence of a fool. Believing in his false idols and the "divine" might that were bestowed upon him. Hmpf, more like a handout givin by the Great Dragon out of pity for their short-sighted beliefs. Slowly entering a meditation to recieve the blessing of the Great Dragon Artemis laughed at how easily he would take prize of this tournament, and how easily this absurb self absorbed paladin, Roland, would fall...



This tourney is going to rock :D

Added myself to the table.

"That Roland! So pompous and arrogant I could just throw up, but he does seem more observant than the rest of my competitors, I´ll give him that. Seems like nobody else here has even noticed me at all. Good. I caught Roland looking at - or rather, staring at me earlier. It was for the briefest of moments, but I am sure he did. And was that disgust in his expression? If so, probably out of prejudice against the Order. Paladins are one of the few groups that even know about our existence.

I silently moved over to that weird dude, Artemis. From his body language earlier, I could see that he holds Roland in even lower esteem than I do at the moment. Artemis? Seems funny to be named after the greek hunter goddess when you´re a male spellcaster. But what do I know, there is proably a valid reason for that name. Those dark mages are all alike, obsessed with power, although this one seemed to be a funny guy and fighting for a good cause. A little chat can´t hurt, can it?

Oops, he´s in some sort of trance! Better not disturb him. Who knows what unholy critters and curses that can get thrown at me if I piss him off! I´ll wait until later...


I have heard rumours that the legendary Natalya has been seen in this part of Sanctuary not long ago. I really hope to meet her! Of course, I will only find her if she wants to be found..."




Named after the little-known older sister of Jack and Kelly Osbourne, Aimee´s master plan has been to sneak into this competition and like her namesake, slowly hone her skills almost to perfection and when she´s finally ready, enter the limelight. Looks that that plan might have failed even before the competition has started!

Added myself to the table... Don't know exactly what kind of pally I'm going to make, but it'll most likely use zeal or vengeance. I'm so confused right now...

:lol: :lol: :lol: !!! Maybe his mommy made him wear a dress to school, like that poor barbarian kid, Penelope. No wonder he retreated from society to study dark magic! [/trashtalk]

I'll try a pure lightning zon. I'm thinking at least 60 points in lightning skills, to synergize CS. Never tried a build like this before, but the high damage and auto-hit sounds fun. Especially after playing Victor in the Rare tourney (who couldn't hit the side of a barn with his staff)

Indigo Lin, Level 1

@Skunk If you read this, I'm officially asking for the tourny to start early. Tonight would be good, though I'll settle for tomorrow.

@skunkbelly
Re: imbuing...

I understand that I'm not allowed to use the imbued item with this character, or mule items on, but would it be permissible to mule an item on from a different character, imbue it, then mule it back off?

If not, I can deal with it, I just hate wasting my imbue's on crappy base items - which I'd have to do with the 'finish quests before going to the next act' rule.

... assuming I live long enough to imbue anything ...

@Skunk If you read this, I'm officially asking for the tourny to start early. Tonight would be good, though I'll settle for tomorrow.
I'm also really anxious for it to start, but I don't think that would be fair unless everyone else agreed, as it is timed and all.

I am not absolutely sure, but I think Charged Strike is not auto-hit. I think it uses an Attack Rating (same as for normal attack), you just don´t see it. Sirian discovered this back in Classic. I have not seen anything that would indicate that this "feature" has changed. I tried to find specific information about this but have not been succesful yet.

My 'randomly challenged'. amazon Lucky has used Charged Strike a fair bit, and I can say that it can most definately miss.

When CS misses, the result becomes something similar to the sorceress skill Charged Bolt. Bolts will be emitted towards the target, and move semi-randomly away from the amazon.

When CS hits, most bolts will hit the target, and not move any longer. If the target is a large monster, all bolts will hit it. That is why CS pwns act bosses.


Be prepared that you will most likely need a good chance to hit for CS to be good.

something just came to my mind:
in the rare pleasure tournament things were easier...not that many rares drop, not that many items to id
but what about all those blue drops?
pick all up and id all to look for their mods? ...cause you never know what mods can spawn on them...
or maybe ignore drops and just shop for blue items?

but what about all those blue drops?

It will be up to the player, of course.

If you have some D2 experience you have a fair idea what affixes can spawn on what items (which helps a lot when you shop, gamble or reroll magical items), That is of course not the same as what has spawned on a particular found item.

When I play, I always pick up and sell everything magical. This is very good for my characters´economy, especially late in the game. That puny magical Dirk just might be a Berserker´s Dirk (+2 barb skills), worth a LOT of cash.

The fact that we will be restricted to magical items will cause me to actually look at them more often before I sell them (those types that will have a chance of beating what I currently use).

I only pick up blue archon plates/colossus blades/good cruel/godly candidates unless I need some money to revive a merc.
But, I may pick up a whole lot more, because I once killed a boss in the pits which dropped a scimitar, and I said what the hell and picked it up. +3 warcrys, which I gave to someone who then gave me a tal ammy in return :D

Pertaining to picking up blue items as jiansonz metioned before after you have played this game for so long you pretty much know what to pick up. Needless to say though we will be picking up a lot more blue items this time through the game. =D I'll especially be hoping for some rings of blight with the +50 poison damage and I'll be rerolling some townspeople looking for a staff of teleport. ;)

I personally pick up almost everything whenever I play, and sell it to make gold to gamble. I guess it takes me lots of town trips, but I don't mind the time spent, and having that gold is always helpful.

Yeah I pick up almoist anything blue/yellow just to sell if not use, as well as the various white armor pieces that sell for 30k a piece. I have a level 50 trapassin i'm playing around with and she's spent about 3million gold on her mercenary and gambling already (rough estimate, could be off by about 500k gold). As for the tourney starting early, I wouldn't mind, i'm eagerly waiting to play my char =)

Well I am going to have to go against all this people asking for the tourney to start early, as of now I will be missing 3 days already (going to DC) however if it starts early I will miss a full week. Sorry guys.

-Kool69

Hi all, i'v bee naround for awhile, wanting to join tournys, but never around for the start of them, till now. So if it is alright with everyone i would like to join you guys,(and gals?) in the blue tourny. Heh i reinstalled d2 just for this, kind of, my lust for diablo is back. So here we go!


BracK - Necromancer
Level - 1
Act one Normal
0 points

He's going to be a Golemancer with some curses, maybe.

Could someone add me to the list please? i am a huge newb to fourm stuff :(

I am not absolutely sure, but I think Charged Strike is not auto-hit. I think it uses an Attack Rating (same as for normal attack), you just don´t see it.
Hmmm, thanks for the info. I wasn't counting on that added bit of difficulty.
My "randomly challenged" zon never rolled any points in CS IIRC. I was planning on bypassing Penetrate to free up more skill points.

I remember my Poison Tourney zon tossing Plague Javs that had no effect if she D/A/E'd while throwing, and missed her target. Perhaps there's a similar bug with CS which creates harmless bolts.

I could've bypassed the AR problem with a Fire Rogue merc spamming Inner Sight, but they're banned, which is cool since this is a melee tourney. Plus, I'm counting on a Holy Freeze merc to help me out, and for corpse disposal.

All right, I'll play a Barb who will use skills synergized by Bash & Shout, such as Conc, Double Swing, BO, etc.

I also added Jake_b74 to the table. A golemmancer? Son, have you ever played this game before - do you know what you're about to do?

Thank you very much Quickdeath. Yes i have played, perhaps its time i reintroduced my self.

*crazy grin* screw it I want to have fun! *tosses self into the golemancer group with jake* watch out minions of hell, here comes Artemis the sexy (guy) necromancer with a girl's name and his iron golem...

Well ive decided to do a Holy freeze pally
p.s. lets just start this danm thing already

could not edit my last post so bear with me ok.

The "i got meele blues tourney" should start now that the rare pleasure one is done so i say lets start it quote from first part of rare pleasure thread "1. This is a quick tournament. It will begin on Sunday, May 1, at 7:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. It will end on Saturday, May 28, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time." It should be started early patrtially cause of the above and partially because i think everybody is ready for it to start
so lets get it started...NOW
my pally is rearin to breakout onto the blood moor :D
I dont think that i can wait anymore

I dont think that i can wait anymore
ahum ... please consider that there might be people who aren't here this week and registered for the tourney. Since there is a fixed end date, those who staert now would have a serious advantage. We need to have a consensus about an early start, and getting such a consensus would most likely take more time than the few remaining days until July 1.

In tournaments, someone must be the decision-maker. And that person is the tourney organizer.

If you start early, be prepared to be disqualified. That is exactly what happens to cars in the Indy 500 and runners in the Boston Marathon who jump out ahead of the starter's gun.

I agree. There is only one person who can decide on this. Also, having said that, I want to join this Tournament. Seems like a real challenge. Build will be some sort of Druid kin. Could someone please add me to the list as I'm not 100% sure I would be successful at doing it. Thanks & good luck.

Edit: I have a question, not sure if this has been asked yet (feeling lazy and not checking at 11:45pm on Saturday!!), but the start time, is that for a particular time zone, or does it start and end in your own? Thanks.

Err, you know it can be annoying when the same person asks for the tourney to start early 3 times in 4 posts, 2 of which had nothing but begging to start early.
Its only a week before the tourney, and i dont see any reason to start early.

Just changed my characters name. Looks like we have 47 participants. If history is a good guide about 30 will actually play.

Hello,
I also play SP/HC a lot and when I saw your last Tornament I decided to participate in the next one. I hope I did the code thing right... :p

Because I was curious, I worked out some scoring (with guesstimated levels):

After the den of evil at level 5: -2 points (yay!)
After act 1 at level 15: 7 points
After act 2 at level 22: 21 points
After act 3 at level 27: 37 points
After act 4 at level 33: 40 points
After act 5 at level 45: 48 points
After act 5 hell at level 85: 223 points

So we can probably all look forward to having positive (and increasing) scores. It looks like the best way to score high is to simply advance as far as possible, and not worry about losing points by leveling too much. Each act is worth 21 points (9 points for act 4), and it's unlikely that anyone will gain more than 21 levels in any act, except perhaps act 1 normal.

Assuming that we're all really good at this, however, it will be best to make guardian at the lowest level possible.

I think you are basically right here. Very few chars are going to survive act V hell (especially melee chars!) at low level, and with the difference to exp once you get to around lvl 80, levels tend to balance out around then anyway. So there really is no sense trying to play as low a level as possible.

Welcome aboard DX! Another SPHCL player is always great to see. 👏 👏
Well I thought I would give you and Mordalles a good fight, probably you will beat me easy but I will try :D

DX

This might be a dumb question but this will be my first tournament and I didn't see it in the rules, what are the rules for using /players x?

You can use any players setting you like. Generally, if its not stated in the tourney rules, it means you can use whatever your comforatble with (which if we get into hell, will almost allways be P1, but meh.)

yay! great to see DX enter! 👍

Let's try something unlikely, shall we? :eek:

Edit: In case Cleric seems like a caster, I'm just using the healing auras in melee. ;)

Ok, that sounds good, but I have one last question. If I were to play on /players 8 for the blood moore/den of evil and cold plains, then switch to /players 1 for blood raven is that acceptable or a no-no? (I don't really ever do this and don't plan to but I figured i'd ask just incase)

Perfectly acceptable.

Most of us switch down to Players 1 mode when we fight the Ancients.

@ Wizardhawk:

For these tourneys it is acceptable practice to take down the /players setting whenever you like. Not everyone does it, but it's really just a matter of personal preference; people will not really mind if you do or don't do it.

In fact, it may even be good strategy to set /players to a low number in preparation for certain "big battle" situations (aka act bosses, Blood Raven, etc). For example, I usually do NM Ancients at players 1, since it takes noticeably shorter time and there is no real benefit to killing them at higher players settings.

EDIT: Quickdeath beat me to it. I guess that's what I get for writing pompous, long-winded answers.

I'd like to enter too pretty much.

After FB promised a green breast plate to the first to die I decided that I needed a character likely to survive a little longer than some ;) . Bye-bye chargadin, hello WW Druid (passive summons too). My new goal is to make NM.

Wow, i am realizing just how hard it is to plan a melee sin. I kinda looked at the idea of two elemental skills plus PS to synergize.... 63 pts done with, assuming 25 ish points to shadow skills that really doesn't leave much, even if the char survives all the way through hell. Alternatively she could use one elemental plus venom, but that doesn't save points, only changes the outlook.....
In other words, I have no idea what I really want to do, and this ramble is more about seeing what other people are thinking, Im curious how all you other sin players out there are going to with your builds.
Hopefully it will be fun along the way anyway! 👍

Id like to enter also. I guess i will try a pally. Name will be True_Blue. Im not positive what skills ill use yet. If i have to know before i start let me know.

Crazy_bear:

I'm playing as a dr00d, but if I were a sin I would go with PS as main skill, with pts in elemental skills to synergize. Just my thinking.

Slightly OT, imo the PS skill gives sins a slight edge in the tourney b/c of its ability to deal melee, slvl-based damage from all three elements. Is there any other skill like that in the game?

vengeance, can't think of any others. Maybe you would count skeleton mage?

amazon's lightning spear skills, assassin's elemental charges, assassin's venom, necromancer's poison dagger, barbarian's berzerk, paladin's vengeance but also the elemental aura's, sorceress' enchant, druid's rabies, druid's fireclaws.

None of these skills do all three the elemental damage like PS (except for vengeance) but all these skills do far better damage in one of the elements. IMO building a PS sin that deals enough damage you still have to focus on one of the elements. Then later on you might chip in a second..

Im curious how all you other sin players out there are going to with your builds.
Nothing fancy here, just what I would assume is a standard PS build. As you said there aren't a lot of points that you have much choice with. Max PS, Shadow Master. 1 point in all other shadow skills, with +skills on switch to boost them. The one point in venom probably won't be that useful unless I come up with a large +skills boost, but hey it's only one point.

I'll probably balance my remaining points in Fists of Fire, and Claws of Thunder. I'd rather have two decent sources of damage than one strong for this build.

I am not quite sure when it comes to sure of some parts of my build. I´ll play by ear when I get that far. What is clear is that I´ll use shields on both weapon switches. I will spend a lot of time shopping for the ultimate magical shield. Blocking will be maxed.

The way I play, if I should survive until Hell, I´ll have 82 skill points to distribute by then. My plan is this:

Dragon Talon 1
Dragon Claw 1
Dragon Tail 1+
Dragon Flight 1
Tiger Strike 1+
Cobra Strike 1
FoF 1
CoT 1+
BoI 1
PS 1+

Claw Mastery 1+
Burst of Speed 1
Cloak of Shadows 1
Psychic Hammer 1
Weapon Block 1
Shadow Warrior 1
Mind Blast 1
Shadow Master 17 (effective level, I can save points here if I have +skills)
Fade 20

The plusses (+) will share the remaining 28 skill points between them, as well as the points I gain in Hell. Obviously, CM will only be pumped if I have a really good claw I know I will keep for the rest of the game.

I figure I can do good physical damage even without further investment in Tiger Strike. Aimee will have the strength to use at least Scarabshell Boots. A kick with these boots with a fully charged Tiger Strike will do more than decent physical damage. My barb merc (hopefully named Bill!) and the Shadow Master should also lend some good physical damage help.

I won´t use Venom. With Open Wounds banned (a crafted blood belt is otherwise standard for my meleers) I want a longer poison duration. I´ll get that from a charm.

I´ll max Fade. With no access to set/unique/rare/crafted/runeworded items, an inherent 20% PDR is just too good to pass on for a semi-frail melee character. The 64% resist all and 82% curse reduction time aren´t bad either. Hopefully I can use less resist charms and more +life and elemental damage charms than I use to.


So my character won´t be specialized for massive damage of any kind, but I hope she will be durable, versatile and able to handle the dangers ahead. :jig:

OK, I don't like the daggermancer idea, the more I think about it... and I do still need a barbarian Guardian :lol: so here's my last switcheroo.

And no starting early, noobs :D Just pretend it's Xmas. Or the last week of school.

vengeance, can't think of any others. Maybe you would count skeleton mage?
Well, what I meant was that PS's dmg scales up based on the slvl of PS, not on the dmg of your weapon. (Vengeance's dmg is based on the damage of the wielded weapon iirc). So a PS assy does not really need to worry about her weapon dmg, which most other melee chars will need to be concerned with.

amazon's lightning spear skills, assassin's elemental charges, assassin's venom, necromancer's poison dagger, barbarian's berzerk, paladin's vengeance but also the elemental aura's, sorceress' enchant, druid's rabies, druid's fireclaws.

As Nikolaas pointed out, I guess you could make the same argument for some other skills. On that list, all except for berserk and vengeance. (I forgot about a lot of those skills!)

Although, i am willing to bet that with skunkbelly's recent character change, poison dagger will not be used much in this tourney!

Thanks, skunkbelly. I was afraid you'd relent and start early. With the forums down many people wouldn't get the word, and miss out on a full weekend of play. Next weekend, however, it's off to the races!

Yep I believe PD is going to be obsolete for this tourney. Currently I am looking at a Golemmancer/Mojomancer/Meleemancer hybrid >_<
Assuming I will finish at level 75, add 12 skill points for the quests, and we get 87 skill points to work with.
20 Iron Golem
20 Fire Golem
15 Golem Mastery
6 Summon Mastery
1 Amplify Damage
1 Weaken
1 Terror
1 Iron Maiden
1 Life Tap
4 Decreptify
16 Dim Vision
1 Confuse
Stat Wise I am looking at 385 stat points to place (including quest given ones)
Str. 15 + 91 = 106 (Archon Plate and some Exception Swords)
Dex. 25 + 177 = 202 (Max block at level 75 with a Bone Shield of Deflection)
Vit. 15 + 117 = 132
Eng. 25 + 0 = 25

This is going to be interesting

You could call it a GoMoLeemancer. :lol:

Mainly just tired of seeing my ? marks so I thought I'd finalize my class and try my hand with the table

Answering the question of assasin builds, mine will be a Dragon Clawer, (two claws, for everybodys knowledge) with max Dragon Claw, Venom, 10+ in claw mastery (probably maxed last, if I get enough skill points), and ~10 in Shadow master, 17 with two +3 to Shadow discline claws on change, gonna have to shop quite a while for these :)
1 point in pre-requisites and Tiger and Cobra strike.. Don't know if I'll bother getting fade, though she'll be quite fragile otherwise. Maybe after everything mentioned above, I'll put points there.

Cloak of shadows is gonna be the thing that saves this build, I'll probably have to take everything on one at a time starting from nightmare, unless I feel reckless, or manage to aquire all sort of godly equipment. Shadow master will be the one spamming Mind Blast, I generally avoid putting any points there for some reason.. though I could give it a try, since this is my first HC assasin, and my.. let's see, first assasin after 1.09 :D (not counting one I got to Normal act 3, and realized it sucked)

I'ma make a dragon-build I've been thinking about for a while... using an eclectic mix of the dragon skills (Claw, talon, tail) ... it'll be ... interesting, to say the least. :lol:

Just had an interesting thought with regard to Iron golems - are people allowed to make them from whatever they want? Or do they have to use magic items for them, as well?

Shhhh!! Be quite or skunkbelly will hear you!!

Actually I was wondering this also, I was hoping to put some of those uniques I can't use to a good use other than making me gold lol =D

My ears were burning :)

GOLEM RULE CLARIFICATION:

You can only make iron golems out of blue magic items. And if you fill sockets in the blue items first, then you may only use legal socket-fillers (blue jewels or sapphires).

The fun just doesnt stop! gogo me golamancer... :lol:

I just heard the sound of a couple of IK Maul Iron Golems crumbling :lol:

I'm in for sure. Going with an MeleeSorc just for fun.

To all those that posted their 'sin ideas/builds thanks.
I was thinking something like:
CoT 20 (or FoF?)
BoI 20
PS 20
Shadow skills (except venom) 1
Shadow Warrior/Master 15
Fade 10+

I was thinking about using the shadow warrior instead of the shadow master to force it to use the melee skills and tank, plus that seems more in line with the melee tourney since the master will use traps. On the other hand, the shadow master is a much better minion so I'm not so sure that's a good idea. This build would totally depend on the elemental damage, and I'm not sure that it would kill all that well without good +skills, but since I should be able to shop claws it might be not too bad to make work. I think act bosses may be slow with no crushing blow/OW to help out.

Personally, I'd go FoF instead of BoI because of the increase in meteor damage. Against bosses, you can hit and release, hit and release, to spam mass meteors, they go down pretty fast like that. As for not having enough +skills, you should be fine throughout normal and nightmare. For hell, as long as you're under player 1 setting, you should be fine, too. If you're not sure, maybe buy some +2 assassin skills claws from Anya in act 5 nightmare (I think they're available then).

I'm changing my build from smiter to martyr - probably just as hard, but more interesting. Good luck to us all.

Hi, I've just joined the forum, can I participate? I'd like to play an Assassin, the name should be Blue Velvet. It will be a tough challenge, since I've never played HC before :eek: Any tips from someone wich more gaming exp than me (that is, all of you guys ;) )?
Bye

General HC advice (sorry if this seems noobish):

* Life is what keeps you alive. Don´t neglect it. Early on, get lots of Vitality. For quite a while, you don´t need more than 30 STR for Breast Plate and Bone Shield. DEX isn´t much needed early on either. That´s for later, to get good blocking or use certain weapons. Even with crappy gear and noobish playstyle, a large life pool will often pull you through anyway. When I face Normal Diablo, I want >300 life, no matter what character I play.

* Resistances are always good to have, especially fire and lightning.

* Don´t enter the next battle if you are hurt and low on potions, or if you have been hit by a strong poison. Go back to town.

* Have at least one column of full rejuves in belt at all times you enter a fight (after you have the Cube). Any time your character takes a LOT of sudden damage, drink a full rejuve. Prectice this, make it a reflexive move. You have no use for saved rejuves if you are dead.

* If you are in doubt that you will win a certain fight, flee and come back later.

* Don´t kill high-life FE bosses in NM and Hell when you stand next to them. Don´t stand next to FE + LE bosses (or FE beetles and their minions) when they take damage. Don´t hang around corpses of FE shambling undead bosses (like Pindle). Don´t ever stand even remotedly close to an FE ancient!

* Certain resistances are important against certain act bosses. Prepare wisely. Antidotes and Thawing potions add a temporary 50% resistance to poison and cold (respectively), and raises the max. resistance to 85. Use them, both for character and merc. Their effect time is added, you can drink a whole bunch of them and have added resistance for several minutes.


* MOST IMPORTANTLY: If you are the slighest bit tired, intoxicated (in whatever way) or don´t really feel like playing, DON´T! Play another character.

* Be mentally prepared that your first couple of HC characters will most likely die at some time, so the disappointment doesn´t get too hard to handle.

* MOST IMPORTANTLY: If you are the slighest bit tired, intoxicated (in whatever way) or don´t really feel like playing, DON´T! Play another character.
I can only second this. I don't play much HC, but all deaths I experienced in HC were due to being tired / distracted by something else / wandering thoughts. I don't have any HC char in hell, I guess this advice will become even more important there.

Can't wait to start ^_^

Allright.. I didn't want to list my build at first but since some other assassins did so, I'll join the crew. I must say though, my build will ensure my playstyle and me having fun, if you just plain copy it... well, you're allowed to. :rolleyes:

Picking an Assassin had two reasons.. 1 she's melee.. the obvious, I didn't want a Barbarian since I played them too much and I killed a Paladin in the Rare Pleasures so an Assassin is up next. 2 high survivabillity. Again pretty obvious, last time (and normally) I look at force and kill power, this time I'll look at defence and crowd control.

Skills..
Dragon Talon - 18
CoS - 20
Fade - 20
Venom - 20
Shadow Master, Mindblast, prereq's - 1
Required skillpoints: 85
If I get a higher level then 74 I'll put some more points in weapon block.

Skill selection:
Dragon Talon, this skill will do damage. I'll get 3 extra kicks at 18 points, so no need to max it to 20. I need to find some boots and I'm good to go. Magical Myrmidon would be best, but lesser will be good enough to kill in hell too. If I can get some manaleech this skill will rock the monsters.
CoS, obvious, will help my defence, AR and more important it will blind the ranged attackers.
Fade, I choose fade over BoS because I will need the resists in hell. The extra 20% DR is just sweet. I'll be slower, but safer too.
Venom, the poison is actually quite decent and short as it is, it will stop monsters from regenerating while I'm kicking them.
SM, MB, prereq's, obvious points, I'm not going to pump anything.. I don't think I'll need them nor do I have the points left.

My gear: The only thing I really have to worry about is getting good enough boots, but generally I can shop for them or find them eventually. I'm going to shop alot for +shadow claws since I won't use them to attack.. they can be a good source for skills. Two claws will also ensure blocking, even with weapon block at slvl 1 I'll block 26% of all the attacks, no matter what my dex is. I'll be aiming for about 150 strength (to equip boots) and around 80-90 dex, might be higher if I get a nice claw with higher requirements. Vitality will be high enough.

I'm hoping to get to level 30 orso, by then I'll have a decent CoS going and my kicks will do good enough damage. After that it should be doable. :)

Well, madness is madness.

Two claws will also ensure blocking, even with weapon block at slvl 1 I'll block 26% of all the attacks, no matter what my dex is.
You know, I was thinking this too, that without high dex investment, and with the difficulty of getting much out of a shield in this tourney that it might be best just to stick with dual claws.

Skill pts really are tough on the assasin aren't they!

As this is a crazy tournament, shouldn't there be more crazy builds?
(I think I am among the craziest)

As this is a crazy tournament, shouldn't there be more crazy builds?
Well, I want to have a chance in a tournament to get somewhere. All HC chars are doomed from the very beginning (except the lucky ones or Nightfish's chars). So my choice is a build that at least has a chance to get through normal, if not nightmare. The equipment and damage source restrictions are crazy enough for me ;)

Jeeze stint that looks like a really solid build i am tempted to do the same in fact i am gonna be a biter in this case and im gonna change to a sin of similar proportions thanks for the permission to copy
:D :D :D her name is in honor of my original SP Assassin

Ok, since its 1 day left, tell me what piece of equipment u wanna find the most! I wanna find a jewelers phase blade of quickness, and im gonna socket it with 15 ias jools if i find any..that would be 15+15+15+15+40=100 ias..nasty for a fireclawer :D

Ok, since its 1 day left, tell me what piece of equipment u wanna find the most!
My main concern will be resists, so I'll look for a helmet/boots/rings/ammy combos with high resistances for each of fire/cold/lightning and then will probably change equip when I come into areas that has foes with elemental attacks. Since we can't mule on, my stash will become quite full of such stuff soon though.

Ok, since its 1 day left, tell me what piece of equipment u wanna find the most!
* Greater Talons of Quickness (any prefix will do, really!) shoppable from NM Asheara or Anya at clvl 66+. Odds: 1 in 529 for any Blade Talons to get that affix and be upgraded to exceptional. A nice prefix and some good +skills would be a nice bonus.
* Kenshi´s Heavy Gloves of Alacrity (shoppable at level 58 from NM Charsi, Gheed or Elzix. Odds: 1 in 11306... :uhhuh: )

The two items above would allow my assassin to reach the maximium speed even without BoS or IAS jewels (I want to use Fade, and give the IAS jewels to my merc instead)

* Jeweler´s Gothic Plate (any!). NM Hratli, Halbu, Larzuk, clvl 66+. Odds: 0.83%.
A good place to put fancy jewels.


Hot tip to get a 3-socketed helm: Shop Normal Larzuk for Artisan´s Great Helms at clvl 39+. 1,9% chance is not bad! "Why not look at the Crowns he sells?", you may ask. Well, Crowns need a higher ilvl to support Artisan´s than what is allowed in this act.

* Perfect Coral/Cobalt/Garnet Plated Belt of the Whale.

* Perfect Coral/Cobalt/Garnet/Prismatic Rings of "mana/life steal".

* Perfect Amber/Ruby/Sapphire 'biggest Elite Boots I have the strength to wear' of Speed/Acceleration.

* Yeah, then you could always dream about circlets and amulets with a nice combination of something like Chromatic/Amber/Ruby/Artisan´s/Witch-hunter´s of the Whale/Life Everlasting.

Seeing as the tournament starts tomorrow (just under 5 hours here in Aus.) I had better define my build and character name. I am going to use a werebear/summoner druid who will specialises in, well whatever takes my fancy as I go along I think. Probably Summon Grizly, Werebear, Sage Oak, Fire Claws, Shock Wave. Never played a werebear before, never played Hard core before. Should be fun 👍

His name will be Moody_Blues.

Could someone please update the table for me. Tried with horrible results.

Good luck all!!

@martinkingss - given my lack of werebear knowledge, I think anything with leeching, resistances, faster attack speed and a nice pelt of course 👏

Hm.. I want to find some blue myrmidon graves. With fr/w would be nice but any pre/affix would do :)
After that some shadowskill claws are definately nice!

You're welcome pinkey, if you want to copy someone.. however I think you edited yourself out of the participants list :rolleyes:

Ok, since its 1 day left, tell me what piece of equipment u wanna find the most!
I'd love to see any of the following:
  • Chromatic grim shield of Deflecting
  • Communal druid helm of The Mammoth with decent +to individual skills
  • Communal Tyrant Club of the Lamprey/Quickness
It will be interesting to see what actually turns up... I'm itching to start!


@Tasdaz: I'd never played HC or a bear before, either, but I made it to Hell act 2 in the rare pleasure tournament. Your planned skill points sound be too scattered - you should probably check out some of the guides in the Druid forum before you jump right in.

Just a reminder: the start time is *Eastern Standard Time* so it is certainly more than five hours away, no matter where you live. By my current watch reading, it's still more than a full day away.

I'm hoping for a nice high-defense armor with three sockets, or a really sweet barbarian helm. Fingers crossed.

Thanks, will have to consult my International watch and see when I can really start! Shame but, as I have all of Friday off (here time anyway)!

Thanks, will do that tomorrow. All I know is that a werebear can take quite a pounding, so it sounded pretty safe to me. Plus the fact I love druids.

Edit: Sorry for the double post

Ok, since its 1 day left, tell me what piece of equipment u wanna find the most!
There are so many.... I'd like to shop Kenshi's greater talons (of quickness, with + to relevant skills would rock), shadow claws (with +to relevant skills would be major bonus), shadow helm/circlet Kenshi's gloves, jewelers dusk shroud (or other 4 socket light armour) of stability
gamble/find chromatic ammy, prismatic rings, steel charms, shimmering charms

too many options..... so much to find. One thing about a MA sin, with a little luck, she could hit +12 to MA skills, which would really rock for that elemental dmg. It would be nice to save some skill pts this way too.

As this is a crazy tournament, shouldn't there be more crazy builds?
(I think I am among the craziest)
The Energy Shield Enchantress is very effective, once you find a nice quick weapon, and some ar from equipment. (No using of eth's, too bad, eh?)

Ok, since its 1 day left, tell me what piece of equipment u wanna find the most! I wanna find a jewelers phase blade of quickness, and im gonna socket it with 15 ias jools if i find any..that would be 15+15+15+15+40=100 ias..nasty for a fireclawer :D
Weapon1: Cruel, Fast, Big Wacking Maul (no shields/dex for me)
Weapon2: Lots of sockets for a switch to deal with PI's (might ignore jewels and go all PSaph's for longer slow, then use this for an occasional swing at all times).
After that I'll try to find the best balance for resists, leech, +life, +AR and +skills.

Never tried a HF merc, but they seem like a decent defence/offense balance for HC. His outfit will probably be as much leech as I can get on a weapon and as much resists and +life on armor. Not using rares/uniques will definitely make it hard to keep him alive if I make it later in the game.

Not sure about MF. A little (50 or so) for questing, then remove it for boss fights seems like the best idea to me. Anyone else have suggestions for using MF to maximize magic quality drops?

A good deflecting shield with some good pally automods would be nice :D

Also a fast weapon to hit a reasonable fpa...

1. This is a quick tournament. It will begin on Friday, July 1, at noon Eastern Standard Time. It will end at 7:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, August 31.

Errr... could the tourny host post a 'let's go' thread or something so I don't mess the starting time?

Well I suppose skunkbelly will make a tourney thread anyways...

1. This is a quick tournament. It will begin on Friday, July 1, at noon Eastern Standard Time. It will end at 7:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, August 31.
Some references for noon Eastern Standard Time (July 1):
Code:
Sydney:       3 a.m. Saturday, July 2
Berlin:       7 p.m.
London:       6 p.m.
NYC:          1 p.m.
Houston:     12 p.m.
Denver:      11 a.m.
Phoenix:     10 a.m.
Los Angeles: 10 a.m.

If you need more times to calculate tourney start:
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclo...=7&day=1&year=2005&hour=12&min=0&sec=0&p1=105

If you know U.S. geography and are wondering why NYC is an hour ahead of the tourney start, it's because standard time was specified and most of the U.S. runs on daylight time (minus a few wacky states like Indiana and Arizona.)

Tourney closes at:
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclo...8&day=31&year=2005&hour=19&min=0&sec=0&p1=105

For American players (and anyone else affected by the silliness that is Daylight Savings Time): just look at your watch, and use common sense. If you live in New York, and it's noon, you can start. Etc. This is an American-hostedTournament, after all :D And if you live elsewhere in the world, and you think that is unfair... I suppose you can start an hour early. But no more than that.

Ok, since its 1 day left, tell me what piece of equipment u wanna find the most! I wanna find a jewelers phase blade of quickness, and im gonna socket it with 15 ias jools if i find any..that would be 15+15+15+15+40=100 ias..nasty for a fireclawer :D
Hmm... I need so many pieces of equipment to survive its silly.
Mostly I need a really fast weapon... phaseblade or some zeal charged thingie.
But I will be in dire need of Damage by x reducers and life/mana +mods.
(Hysteria thinx a base vit over 100 is for wussies)

* Jeweler´s Gothic Plate (any!). NM Hratli, Halbu, Larzuk, clvl 66+. Odds: 0.83%.
A good place to put fancy jewels.


Hot tip to get a 3-socketed helm: Shop Normal Larzuk for Artisan´s Great Helms at clvl 39+. 1,9% chance is not bad! "Why not look at the Crowns he sells?", you may ask. Well, Crowns need a higher ilvl to support Artisan´s than what is allowed in this act.

Somehow, I knew if I was patient enough, you'd chip in with this vital info, without my having to ask.:lol: 👍

Looks like my first Larzuk socket will be a resist-all/deflecting bone shield, unless I gamble an awesome circlet.

Hi there. I've been browzing these forums for a fair while, and noticed this thread a few days ago. As it looks interesting I think I'll be joining up as Telamar a Holyfreeze Paladin. Unfortunately I likely won't be able to post any updates for the first week or so of the tounament, and so will quite possibly be dead by the time I get to post but hopefully not, as I think I have atleast some chance of lasting a while with the AE slow, and Holy Shield. Good luck to all.

Kanzid

isnt it time to start this thang? its after noon on the 30th of June so lets get reeeeeaaaaddy toooooooo RRRRRRRUUMMMMMBBEEEELLLLL

im not sure about time zones. its about 2 hours till the 1st of july, but ill just start playing 2morow evening to be sure. hehe. good luck to all. and remember to be patient. this is melee.

From down here in Florida where i'm at, it's still about 19 hours and 44 minutes away I think.

*laughs sheepishly* er oops i thought it started today oh well i didnt get my char out to the blood moor ill wait

Got a good 11 and a half hours left 'til July 1, and I'm in Alaska. I guess an official start time would depend on skunkbelly's time zone.

EDIT: *looks more closely at the rules* Noon EST tomorrow, eh? Advantage - Wonko. That's eight in the morning here :p

Noon for me in Florida, which is perfect cause that's about right when I roll out of bed :lol: .

19.00 tomorrow here in Sweden, just when I get home from work. Nice!


Somehow, I knew if I was patient enough, you'd chip in with this vital info, without my having to ask.:lol: 👍


Glad I could help. Anything else you need to know? :D
(I´m just having fun with the affix calculator).

BTW, NM Drognan can sell Chromatic Bone Shields when you are clvl 54. That´s pretty good timing, I am always in that act at that level on a /p8 full clear.


Myself, I aim for an Artisan´s/Chromatic Tower Shield of Deflecting.

Glad I could help. Anything else you need to know? :D
(I´m just having fun with the affix calculator).

If this info is easily accessible to you, then yes.. :) (otherwise forget it)
When can I shop for:
+1 jav gloves
+2 jav gloves
+3 jav gloves

Is it possible to reroll magical maiden javs (with native +1) and get +2 or +3? Or does the native +skill stay the same?

Is it possible to get Lancer's prefix on zon javs and +3 native? (for +6 total) 🤤

I'm going to try to overwhelm the game with pure lightning power throughout Normal/ early NM. All skill points saved for CS and its synergies. p8 clears should quickly get me ahead of the monsters' abilities. No development of passive skills until I have skill points to burn. If I can one-hit p8 baddies, I won't need passive skills in Normal. A deflecting shield should suffice. (Knock on wood.)
Myself, I aim for an Artisan´s/Chromatic Tower Shield of Deflecting.

That's also my goal for NM. The weight penalty is tolerable considering the extra 4% block. Chromatic/Deflecting with a couple sockets from Larzuk maybe. Definitely end-game worthy.

Damn. It'll be 3am Saturday here!!! And with the generous offer of a 1 hour early start it'll be 2am!! Woo Hoo. Will have to get up early just to get a start. Thankfully I have Sunday off to get some real play time in.

PS. Could someone please remove my second entry in the list, the one that has TBD on it. Thanks in adavance. Will get the hang of the code thing sometime!!

Harpoonist´s Leather Gloves can be gambled long before you can buy Harpoonist´s gloves. They need ilvl 21, so possible (but very unlikely) to gamble already at clvl 17, 50% chance of high enough ilvl at clvl 21 and guranteed high enough ilvl at clvl 26.

Otherwise you should pay a visit to Asheara´s Inconvenience Store. We /p8 full clearers get to act 3 at clvl 28, which is high enough to support Harpoonist´s for every glove type Asheara can sell (just enough for Gauntlets). Tip: first get a second waypoint in this act if you want to 'power shop'.
EDIT: Oops, forgot about the ilvl 28 cap in this act! Asheara can only sell Harpoonist´s Chain Gloves. Her Light Gauntlets and Gauntlets can´t have it. The vendors in act 4 can sell them, though.


Spearmaiden´s gloves: same story with gambled Leather Gloves. Needs ilvl 41. Can´t be bought in Normal. We typically get to NM at level 48-49. Both vendors in act 1 NM can sell these gloves, on all the normal gloves types they sell. The exceptional gloves types can´t have it at this clvl, but they don´t show up that often anyway.

Lancer´s Heavy Gloves: same as my desired Kenshi´s, of course. NM Charsi, Gheed or Elzix, at clvl 58+. Or gambled Leather Gloves with an ilvl of at least 61.

Is it possible to reroll magical maiden javs (with native +1) and get +2 or +3? Or does the native +skill stay the same?

I think it does get rerolled, but the ilvl needs to be at least 60 to support +3 skills. So only the '3 perfect gems' recipe will work. You can hope that Normal Baal drops you some magical amazon javelins, otherwise you need a pack from late NM.
An amazon javelin with ilvl 60+ has 1/6 chance to spawn with native +3 J&S skills.

Is it possible to get Lancer's prefix on zon javs and +3 native? (for +6 total) 🤤

Yes. :D
I agree, they would ROCK for your amazon!

jiansonz, you live in Sweden? o_O I live in Finland!

Howdy neighbour :lol:

Whomever does the next update on the table of entrants can probably remove Farting_Bob. F-Bob has just been banned from the Forum. He actually has the honor of being the first player to be eliminated from this tournament -and he did it before before it has even begun.

R.I.P. Farting Bob. You shall be avenged.

Can I start?

Well i guess he can send himself that green breast plate he said that he would give to the first one eliminated.
sorry, i know it's bad form to kick someone while they're down, but i've always been a smart*ss ... but doesn't that seem ironic (referring to the 'g'bye thread' title).

3. Sockets in items can be filled with BLUE JEWELS or SAPPHIRES only (after all, sapphires are blue!). No exceptions. Socketable quest reward items (barb rescue runes, hellforge gems/runes, etc.) may NOT be used (unless, of course, they are sapphires)… mule them off, if they’re worthwhile. If you use sapphires in a socket, they may be of any quality.

Blue as in the jewel is blue or blue as in it's got blue name (i.e. X jewel of Y)? Oh, and the only way we could use a jewel would be in a "Mechanic's" item, right?

1. Yep, blue, as in it's magic. Not rare, and not unique. Magic only.

2. Mechanics/Jewelers/Artisans are 3 that come to mind as available magic preffixes - there might be more. Not sure if some of the magic class-specific items necessarily list that prefix when they spawn with sockets, so they might be acceptable (as long as they're magic).

Added myself in, this looks like a fun tourny and a good exuse to start a HC character, I just waited till the last minute cause I wasn't sure if i would have time, still not sure, but will try

2. Mechanics/Jewelers/Artisans are 3 that come to mind as available magic preffixes - there might be more. Not sure if some of the magic class-specific items necessarily list that prefix when they spawn with sockets, so they might be acceptable (as long as they're magic).
Magical items with sockets are:

* Mechanic´s, Artisan´s, Jeweler´s items
* Weapons that have been rerolled with the 3 chipped/regular/flawless gems recipes (1-2 sockets, 50% chance of each)
* Magical items socketed by Larzuk (1-2 sockets, 50% chance of each)

Just wondering what some of you other lightning zon's are gonna be using, javelin + shield or a spear, or both on switch? 9 hours 30 mins til play time 👏 .

Nice, thx for clarification :D

I end work today at 3 p.m. So I can go home, eat something and still have some time to rest till 6 p.m and start playing hehehe

EDIT: (And re-read the rules to make sure I dont do anything wrong)
Ok let's get ready to rumble :D

Well time to start playing good luck all participants. 👍

I suggest making a new thread for the tourney

DX

Made quest 1 and 2, 4 points


Found cold plains and stony field, 2 points

lvl 10, - 10 points (or minus 9?)

Score: -4 points :D

BlueBeast, Werebear.

I have not been able to finish normal mode yet, so still cannot build a HC char :mad:

I therefore am not able to participate officially and shall play in SC just for fun until my first death - which really should not take so long with all the weird builds that I fancy - since this sounds really interesting.

Hold your horses, it´s 6 hours 15 minutes until it starts!

(OK, then I suspect you could just move the end time the same amount).

If you have ATMA, you can create a HC character anyway.

I tried that, but somehow could not figure it out how to do that exactly

Well go to the Utility menu and choose new character, check the boxes Expansion and hardcore. Choose which version this case 1.10, choose class and Name it then press ok, make sure you place the character in right folder, good luck

Ahhh :bonk:
Going to try that tomorrow since I am on duty all night long.
Thanks DX, I appreciate that

Holy ****! Really? I thought we was going on gmt..that would be alot easier for every1..well..shall i delete the char?

Sigh.

No need to re-start. But surely everyone can read? EST, folks! :D

Just in case, you might want to go back and read the rules carefully... I'll forgive an accidental early start, but other infractions might be more costly.

NOTE:

Since another thread has been started for the scoreboard, please post scores and updates there, and rule questions only here.

Does the magic only restriction apply to mercs too?

This finishes the thread. Tournament running thread/scoreboard thread is here.

Absolutely. All equipment restrictions that apply to the character also apply to your merc, including what you can use to fill your merc's sockets.


EDIT:

Oh, and by the way.... READY, SET, GO!!!!!!!!!!!

I plan on going soley spear. I need to check the main page and figure out which spear types are fastest. Lances are probably right out.:
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd Weeerrrre OFFFFFFFFFFF

ITS A BlueMeanie

And here I am listening to my friend play Warcraft 3 on the computer with D2 on it :rant:

well lets see now, my "golamancer" is slowly turning into a posion daggermancer. Uhh level 14, and got 3 quests done, and 4 wps, so is that = to... -4 score?

Just to check in that I'll be starting in mere minutes, but the 4th-of-July weekend is a weird time to start a gaming competition, isn't it?

Is it too late to join??


Slayer

feel free to join, the tourny is for everyone, but besure and read the rules! 👍

Well i'm going to enter with a polearm Berserk/Concentrate Barb ...Called...BlueCrusader


-Slayer

Just read this thread and i want to participate, just for a laugh, not fussed that i've started late.

Is a Zeal/Smiter Paladin ok? If so i will make one with the name BlooCake.

If i pick up a bow as my first blue, i cant use it so i fight with no weapon correct? only thing i cant figure out :)

Correct. The only exception is if it's class specific, like a blue katar as your first drop. Probably the best find would be a blue staff or wand with good +skills that you can promptly return to town and sell for 1,000 gold or more, and then buy the blue you want.

EDIT: Actually, I just reread it and i'm not 100% positive. I'm pretty sure that you would have to use your fists til you found a melee weapon blue, however if someone else could clarify this 100%, that'd be nice.

Hey guys,

Its my first post here. is it too late to join this competition? it sounds like fun. i just wanna see how far i can get, ive never played HC before.

cheers

I don't think it should be too late, I guess consensus would decide on that. A proper intro thread post by you would be good though. Tell us a little about yourself, likes, dislikes, etc.

BTW Welcome!!! 👍
