    Dont worry too much Morathi, its not like she was gonna make it very far. I mean she dies easily enuff when you ARE trying to keep her alive .

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    OK, I apologise for shooting off ahead, but weekends are my only time to play, so I figured I'd start early, and then get overtaken during the week

    Nevermore storms onward!

    With Ravens circling, Nev raced out into the desert and found the cube (and Dry Hills wp - this is the part of single pass that sometimes bothers me - i would have preferred to just run through on p1 and get the cube, but if I did that my ravens woulda slaughtered a lot in the first desert area on the way through). A cool thing to note was that Nev could comfortably stand in a pack of beetles without dangerous life yoyo-ing, albeit a half-blind pack of beetles. But that is always nice for a melee class this early, and fills me with some confidence about his survival later into NM.

    After cubing up all my chipped gems (stash and inventory full!) I decided it was time to take down Radament. I always find this tough with most meleers in normal, because of the unleachable skele archers that pack a hell of a wallop. Wasn't so bad for Nev though - just run in circles until they are almost all blind, and whomp em down. He actually started developing a new tactic here - if you are running fast and activate the archers all at once, they fire roughly in sync, so a fast wolf can dodge, run in and lay the smack down, and dodge out again safely. That is especially great because it gives Nev something to do while the Ravens are pecking out the skeletons ....uh ... eye sockets?

    Anyway, all went swimmingly, and a number of lightning resist shrines on level 3 helped with the mages/horrors.

    I should probably say by this point that not having a merc to resurrect is awesome! All Nev's money went straight into gambling mauls, which finally netted a 10%IAS, 50ish% dam, 4%ll (i wanted ML, but cant complain too much!) rare. Also a slower rare with 130% dam to undead really helped in the sewers.

    On the way through the maggot lair (which was really not problem at all) Ceglaws pincers dropped, which i stashed to help slow down the big slug at the end of the act.

    The rest of the act was uneventful really. Kill speed was decent at p8. Skills went a few into lycanthropy (now on 4), a few into feral (now 3) and then into armageddon pre-reqs. Ravens still 15 or 16.

    No NDEs in arcane, or the tomb. Nev was pretty sick of skeles so didnt feel like tomb diving, and just did the real one.

    Duriel coulda been challenging, but ceglaws gloves, plus an arctic belt and LL around 20% meant there were no real problems, although unshifting halfway through because I didn't reset the wolf timer was a little hairy.

    So Nevermore travelled to Kurast, level 25.

    I wasn't gonna update the table, but just so an up to date one is here

    Two thoughts .

    1. Amazing how often that seems to happen to us :grin: .
    2. And, you banned Insight Polearms . Come on, that would have been our ideal weapon :grin: .

    In unrelated news, Frost-Fang has rescued Cain. No good finds (probably because I've only found two chipped topazes so far ). Real update coming after Andariel .

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Ooo... after my utterly failed attempt at a tourney run last time, I'm thinking this one should actually work out for me. If nothing else, it looks easier than I've seen so far. I'll do some reading up (I've never been in Nightmare, let alone Hell), and then get ready to start Tuesday night after I finish a final for a grad class I have. I have all Christmas break coming, though it's going to be punctuated with other games since I'll have just bought a new computer as well.

    So what class to be? Hmm... Need some look at this. Any suggestions are fantastic!

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    I'm in, with Umbriel, the DTail assassin. Yep, it's the same build I'm using in the Craftsman's Children tourney, I'm slightly obsessed. Anyway, she made it to level 13, having cleared to the Dark Woods and rescued Cain. She realized halfway through level 2 that she hadn't dropped her starting sheild yet, but she'd only killed about a dozen monsters, and hadn't heard the sheild-block sound, so she didn't bother restarting. Her merc didn't die easily, but finally she got herself cornered. Then Umbriel took vengeance on bonebreaker by breaking his bones.

    @Aphid: A build that I really like that would probably be good in this tourney is a strafezon. If you get KB with your strafe, that does pretty good crowd control by itself. I'll probably come back as a strafer if I get killed.

    @Soulmanz: I like the whole hit-and-run thing you're doing. It sounds like the tactics I'm using, with murderous birds on top.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Hmm... No Shield, Summons, and Merc?

    Sounds like a party with the dead. Might as well go ahead and add a few more deeds to my list.

    As for what I'll play is up in the air. Between few choices. Will post with my entry later.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    I'm trying to decide between an assassin with blade fury and some traps on the one hand and a sorceress on the other. I am leaning toward the assassin, but I love sorceresses and people are not choosing them, so we will see.

    Made it up to the Outer Cloister WP. I can't remember the last time I visited The Hole or some of the other caves in Act 1. Only had one near death experience, some cursed archers in the Tower level 3 had their way with me for a couple of seconds. Did a bit of gambling for gloves and boots at the end of the session, with no success. Can't find any topazes either, although I have at least 6 of each other type. I'll get more done tomorrow. I can't be bothered to do the math at this point for my score, I'll do that tomorrow too.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    I'm in. I'll try bone necromancer. In case of his death I'll try sorceress, she was the second option I was considering, as third is on my list assassin. I would so love to try them all, but I'm short on time in the long term (damn thesis), unfortunately.

    Great tournament Morathi .
