The Twelve Days of Christmas Tourney

On the twelfth day of Christmas, Diablo sent to me
Twelve Necro's Wands
Eleven pipers piping
Ten lords frenzying
Nine rogues fighting
Eight barbs a-bashing
Seven Gloams a-blasting
Six useless charms
Five golden rings
Four Oblivion Knights
Three TC3s
Two Twin Uniques
And a treasure class 87


This tournament is a cross between the Scavenger Hunt and Art Exhibition tourneys. Thanks to Atil for his help with some of the ideas for the tasks.

I have tried to make it so that there is something for everyone - If you are doing MF runs or questing, you should be able to complete tasks as you go.

The Rules
1. Any new or existing character can compete. Any version, any difficulty, HC, SC, vanilla, RRM, RWM.
2. All pictures / items must be taken / found within the tournament period.
3. Items found / pictures taken as part of other Tourneys may be used, eg. Mephathon, Pindlethon, Lifeless etc.
4. Items found / pictures taken whilst MPing do not count.
5. Tasks may be completed at any difficulty setting, but most of the picture tasks score higher in Hell.
6. You must complete a minimum of three tasks to qualify.


Time frame
- Tournament starts immediately (get that Christmas shopping done early!)
- It finishes on the 12th Day of Christmas, Midnight GMT on Saturday 5th January 2008.
- Results must be posted in this thread by Midnight on Sunday 13th Jan. I suggest Imageshack for hosting images.


What to Do
Complete each of the twelve gifts below. Points are given for each task. Put your points into the table, the winner is the person with the highest overall total. In the event of a tie, the winner will be the person with the most task wins.

Twelve Necro's Wands

There are twelve different Necro wands, from normal to unique. Find one of each, they can be any type - set, unique, magic, rare or normal.

Eleven pipers piping
The pipers in question are the little Fetishes with blow pipes in Act 3 or the WSK. Take a picture of at least 11 Fetishes on screen. Bonus points for Uniques or Champions.

Ten lords frenzying
Take a picture of each of the Vampire and Blood Lord classes. They are: Banished, Ghoul Lord, Night Lord, Dark Lord, Blood Lord, Moon Lord, Hell Lord, Death Lord. Add in Infector of Souls (Chaos Sanctuary, Venom Lord) and Ventar the Unholy (Baal Minion, Venom Lord) and that makes 10.

Nine rogues fighting
Nine corrupted rogues on the screen at the same time. Can be a mix between archers and melee. Yes the Countess does count as one.

Eight barbs a-bashing
Round up the barbs. Get a screenshot of 8 of the A5 barbs on the screen at the same time.

Seven Gloams a-blasting
7 Gloams on the screen at the same time. Better pack that T-Gods.

Six useless charms
Find charms six different +1 charms, with no secondary mods - Strength, Mana, Dexterity, Defence, Min damage, Max Damage.

Five golden rings
Find five different unique rings, eg. Nagelring, Dwarfstar, Carrion Wind, Ravenfrost & Manald Heal. Two Nagelrings don't count.

Four Oblivion Knights
Everyones favourite foe, you have to take a screenshot of four OKs on the screen at the same time. And no other monsters. Extra points if the OKs are Unique / Champions, and even more points if you do it with a melee char and have IM swirlies on your head in the picture.

Three TC3s
Find three different Set / Unique TC3s. Each of Bane Ash, Torch of Iro and Knell Striker count double points, extra bonus if you collect all 3 caps.

Two Twin Uniques
Seven item types in the game have a second unique. Find one pair. Possible pairs are:
- Lightsabre & Azurewrath
- Schaefer's Hammer & Stone Crusher
- Tyrael's Might & Templar's Might
- The Cranium Basher & Earthshifter
- Veil of Steel & Nightwing's Veil
- Horizon's Tornado & Stormlash
- Heaven's Light & The Reedeemer

And a treasure class 87
Almost as unusual as a partridge in a pear tree, our final item is a TC87. Green will do, but Gold is obviously preferred. If your pair above includes a TC87, you can't use it for this task too.


Scoring


General Notes on Scoring
- You score nothing if you don't complete the task
eg. You have to get at least seven gloams to score in number 7.

- If you have more that the quantity required, only count the quantity required. The best ones count.
eg. You have 15 Fetishes including a Unique, but only need 11. Count the Unique and 10 normals.

- You can't count an item in multiple categories.
eg. If you find a Tyrael's Might, you cant use it for numbers 1 and 2.
