Naked Ironman Hardcore Uber Tristram?

Posted 8 Aug 2009 by

A group of players on the European server have done what many would consider impossible. They played naked hardcore characters, Ironman style, and completed a full clear of the game, including the entire DiabloWikiPandemonium Event and Uber Tristram. No equipment of any kind was ever used, and they didn’t even allow strong Necro minions! Better yet, they recorded numerous videos of the event, which you can view in amazement.

Standard Ironman rules:

  • Start with 8 new Hardcore Characters, only these 8 characters are allowed.

  • Mo muling, no exping in other games
  • No town support by NPCs: no healing, no shopping, no repairing, no NPC quest rewards (the two skill points from Tyrael are allowed to create the portal to Act 5), no mercs, no escaping through town portals
  • Kill ALL monsters in ALL areas once (besides Tristram and the way down to Nihlathak, because Cain and Anya don’t get rescued)
  • Raise Skeleton, Mage Skeleton and Revive are not allowed

Additional rules:

  • No items allowed (no weapons, no armor, no gems, no charms) besides potions (dropped by or looted from monsters, still no shopping allowed).

  • After killing Baal in hell clean all areas down to Nihlathak, Tristram and The Secret Cow Level for the sake of completeness.
  • Exceptionally trade a complete key set and mule it into the game
  • Killing all monsters in The Matron’s Den, The Forgotten Sands, The Furnace of Pain
  • Entering
