Welcome to my new SC baby, HammerMessiah!

He follows @Luhkoh's Lindon's philosophy in some way, twinking with what I currently have available (maybe some crafts will be needed too along the way... I'll see!)

His theme song is obvious...

Timeline - stolen to @Luhkoh :
Rich (BB code):
Questing
0:35 - start a2 lvl 16 (p8)
1:01 - start a3 lvl 22 (p5, Duriel p1)
1:27 - start a4 lvl 26 (p5)
1:41 - start a5 lvl 27 (p3)
2:13 - start a1 nm lvl 38/shy to 39 (p3 until clvl 29, p8 after, including ancients)
2:25 - start a2 nm lvl 40 (p1)
2:54 - start a3 nm lvl 43, close to 44 (p1)
3:18 - start a4 nm lvl 46.2 (p1)
3:29 - start a5 nm lvl 48.4 (p1)
4:30 - start a1 hell lvl 67 (p8 Eldritch, p1 questing, p8 Throne/Baal/good quests, ended shy to clvl 68)
4:43 - start a2 hell lvl 69.5 (p1, imbue quest skipped, pretty lucky on the paths)
4:56 - start a3 hell lvl 69.9 (p1)
5:11 - start a4 hell lvl 70.8 (p1)
5:18 - start a5 hell lvl 71.7 (p1)
5:19 - made it to hell eldritch
Rich (BB code):
Hell Eldritch leveling
5:19 - start at lvl 71.7
5:50/31mn - lvl 81
5:56/6mn - lvl 82
6:04/8mn - lvl 83
6:13/9mn - lvl 84
6:23/10mn - lvl 85
6:39/16mn - lvl 86
6:58/19mn - lvl 87
7:27:11/29mn - lvl 88
Rich (BB code):
Start chaos with about 2600 hp with bc
CS running
8:11/44mn - lvl 89. Hard times... not used to double
                    seals runs, it should get better onwards, still not
                    running smoothly. Also, merc dies quite a bit,
                    so it definitely doesn't help!
9:10/59mn - lvl 90.
10:26/1h16mn - lvl 91.
12:15/1h49mn - lvl 92.
14:52/2h37mn - lvl 93.
19:04/4h12mn - lvl 94.
24:53/5h49mn - lvl 95 (9k8xp/s, but ended 11k+ xp/s after map update).
35:00/10+hrs - lvl 96 (planned, ~6k+ xp/s picking a lot)

More details to come, thread to be built much nicely later!

The journey

Normal chapter

To be written!
Current state after 35 minutes of bow poisoning then 1.07 Ravenclaw's explosions :

For now the points go only to Hammer skilling/prereqs, many points are unused... i'll take the twinking easiness to try to make the build straight and have a strong switch to Blessed Hammer.

Normal trip had been really easy, with some moments of luck

Nightmare chapter

To be written!
A2: 4th leg in AS...
A3: hidden Spider cavern, ran a lot!
A5: clvl 62 at 3:58, running Eldritch/Shkenk until 60, then Eldritch only. Maybe Eldritch only would have been more efficient. clvl 65 at 4:05. Baal killed clvl 67.6 at 4:14 (Baal and waves on p8... forgot to lower back for Baal). A +8life P&B skiller dropped, so maybe killing him on p8 had paid off somehow :p
4:25: end of NM good quests (lost a bit of time at Anya's... it was helly around Frozenstein, merc popped and I was put into hit recovery...the p8 effects I guess), 4:30 end of Normal quests.

Hell chapter

To be written!

Well I couldn't push as much as I wanted this week end. However, HammerMessiah is currently clvl 62, at Eldritch NM waypoint, leveling there, with clock at 3:58.

I can already state that I am learning a new path for leveling, I am usually a big Normal Baal runner, I would probably enter NM in the mid 50's, and I already pushed there until Mara's once (things were getting slow...). This new path is much more efficient, and so I am already happy to have started this journey.

Not sure being as efficient as you @Luhkoh on the Hell CS part, but for sure the 1.07 Ravenclaw did wonders at the beginning!

Wow nice. 3:58 at lvl 62 is probably ahead of where I was. Keep up the good work!

Not sure really, if I got it correctly you made your good quests with Enigma - so I bet before entering Hell. Well right I already made some on the way, but getting 65 + those quests (NM Den, No/NM Radament + Izual + Anya) + complete NM will put my times far behind. Still a nice journey tho!

Baal killed at 4:14, made it to Hell after quests in 4:30 - stayed a bit on p8 during good quests completion, ended almost 68. Most of the time loss was at NM Anya's... it was helly around Frozenstein, merc popped and I was put into hit recovery + cursed, bunch of snakes + witches...the p8 effects I guess.

There are worst results for first crafts!

Also don't have a CoH for the merc yet... I'll take the Infinity first (one Sur close), so it will be much less efficient for CS running. Merc will use a Ral'ed GA, and a Steel Shade/Insight too.

Slightly behind you @Luhkoh! But it will get worse, as I only have two PC skillers and an offensive one on my SC side - with this char I do hesitate to transfer the good ones (and Rising sun?) HC->SC, especially after Frida's death... Lots of reason to be behind in the end, but it should be enough however to be under the 6 hours mark :)

You're 3 minutes behind and a level ahead. I'd say that's about even. Great work! You'll probably want some leech on your merc once you start CS. So if you don't have coh yet, I wouldn't go for steel shade. Maybe tals mask and treachery? Or ofc ral'd andys + fort if you've got it.

Andy's!!! I forgot about that. Would be the time to get the MF/RF dropped one in use for a time! It had pretty nice stats so I could even socket it, even if not eth.

Well regarding Forti, it is to be tried, but maybe Ral'ed GA can give nice results too. Anyway I have both, so I will be able to check.

Hell Eldritch waypoint: checked!

So you got the timer for you @Luhkoh, but in the end I am really close given the higher level - probably not worth it, but not bad at all!

Thanks again for launching this (not on purpose, but... however ;-), now it'll be leveling time then following the CS path! And get my first entry in @D2DC's Murios' project of a clvl 99 character...

Made some progress...clvl 86.57, estimated time for clvl 87 at 6:58.

I got a pretty nice Eldritch, more often than not there is a pack, and up to 3 from time to time, so I guess it helps being efficient.

Also I brought my two nice PC skillers from HC (27 life and 12 FHR).

All I pick are scs, rare rings/amus, some S/U of interest/pointers. Definitely hard on leveling ;-)

Also opened a trade thread for a nice ST to replace my Akaran one. Hope to get something sooner or later!
Edit: quickly traded for a 45allres Sacred Targe 35FCR Spirit thanks to @hackedagainanda!

TAKE IT BACK JOE, TAKE IT BACK TAKE IT BACK TAKE IT BACK JOE COME ON!
Leveling stuff at the end of the vid, after the last runs and the timestamp. Before there will be some encounters during this last level, I guess it shows that I had a lot of packs around, and I'm pretty sure it helped tremendously to get to this result (it was obviously the same all Eldritch leveling).

Time to get/wear new gear!

Made it to 92. Well, gear (and skills) start to matter really! I continue to timestamp levels and time passed, here's the current CS status:

CS running
8:11/44mn - lvl 89.
9:10/59mn - lvl 90.
10:26/1h16mn - lvl 91.
12:15/1h49mn - lvl 92.

So... well, I just started to use the teleport with inventory opened, it gets back some seconds, but it is not enough. Merc is still fragile, so I can't really telebomb Infector, so the gameplay is very conservative, runs are around the minute (between 0:50 and 1:10 for the two seals). The lack of skillers can explain things too, but so can the use of an AP Enigma and no respec after getting the Sacred Targe to grab some points from dexterity - it costs so much HP in the end, only at 2k7 after BO right now, when @Luhkoh was at 3620 at lvl 88!

Given the last level time, I can plan to be lvl 93 by the end of the 15 hours, so a full level behind you @Luhkoh oO You really handle the CS running, congrats!

Found a rune meanwhile. Not a great one, but alongside an Um and a Lem, it's not bad results so far:

Nice work! Keep it up! My runs are usually around a minute long too, but I do hit a couple extra bosses. Also last time i ran an hdin before this project I had under 3k hp. Mage plate enigma, war travs and mf scs kept the hp total down compared to my current setup. Also I would use a pruby in the shako if I didn't have a ber in there. Good luck on the runs!
