Gold is the eleventh character to complete his journey in my Colour-Coded Sept Project. The project is based around having one character class respresent each of the seven colours of the rainbow, as well as the 4 additional colours available for equipment. Basically, all gear must adhere to the chosen colour of the character, as well as skills where possible.


With no gold attacks in the game, it was to be another melee char. I chose a barb, and since I've already done a Fenzy barb in this Sept I opted for a big 2-hander Concentrate build. Pretty straightforward character really, so let's just get to it.

He unfortunately was not able to use BO since it's blue, so it was maxed only an a synergy. He did get to use Battle Command though so... yay?

Journey
I won't bother you with any gameplay notes here, as they are in the sept thread in full. If you want to read about his adventure and/or look at some of his gameplay screenshots, here are some links to his journey:
Normal/Nightmare
Hell

As always, I will leave a little catalogue of her progression of looks, from beginning through to her final form:

His first full set of equipment came early enough:


Looking a bit more fearsome now with some better armour:


Finally a big 2-hander:


A new armor and helm (and finally a character that could wear crowns properly!):


Last but certainly not least, a big(ger) golden sword:




Other Notes and Final Thoughts

- Two potion rows sucked. End of story.

- The lack of war cries wasn't very fun, but honestly with well over 1k health it wasn't a huge issue overall, especially once the resistances got better. Just had to be a bit careful getting swarmed.

- I would have loved some CBF

- He had a few deaths, mostly just to me being impatient and running into big groups before checking mods.

- He used upped Crainte Vomir right up unil the Ancients in Hell, and honestly it was quite good. His kill-speed was never horrible on /p3 and he always felt like he contributed. I was pleasantly surprised with the sword, give it a try if you haven't yet.

As usual, thanks for reading!

Big congrats Pb_pal. Quite the Sept + 4 here, with style from top to bottom (even the purple Dino Barb :p). Congrats!
