    Tournament: Envious of the Green and Gold

    Well it has been awhile since my last tournament and considering things are quite around here, i think it is perfect time for another tournament by yours truly. I have decided to re-create a classic which is "The Green with Envy tournament" A tourney i hosted on 2 different occasions and combine it with a very old tournament in the S/U Item Worshippers Tourney, hosted originally by Jiansonz. So here we go!

    Characters & Gameplay


    • Your character must be HC although it if you cant you may go SC, but a SC death disqualifies the character from further participation.
    • If your character dies, you may re-enter with another character. There is no limit to this rule, you may re-enter as many times as you wish.
    • Players can use versions from 1.10+
    • Players can use any character class, any build, and assign stat and skill points as desired.
    • Re-specing is allowed if you wish to use it.
    • Any /players setting is allowed, and may be changed at will.
    • Any merc may be used.
    • Single pass only (no re running of act bosses and areas).
    • You may return to previous acts and difficulties, however you may not leave town (you may retrieve Wirts Leg for Cow level, please avoid killing if possible and no picking up loot).
    • Atma may be used as an extended stash.
    • Quests can be completed whenever you wish (ex. you may use the normal socket quest in NM).



    Equipment Rules


    • Your character must be Untwinked (no twinking of items, you must start with nothing).
    • Only S/U's (Set and Unique Items) may be equipped! White or grey items may be used until a S/U item is found for each slot (means no rings or amulets until a S/U item drops). After an appropriate S/U item has been found, you must use that item for that slot or go empty. If you are unable to equip it (ex. you don't have enough dex), then you must do your best to equip it (i.e reach the requirements as fast as possible). Once you find multiple appropriate S/U items for a specific slot (helm, armour etc), then you are able to decide which one you wish to wear.
    • S/U weapons you find can be used towards any of the three weapon slots (primary, switch, merc) at your choice. Once you find your third S/U weapon you must fill the last slot (it is your choice which slot that is!). If your merc cannot equip any of the three S/U weapons, he/she must go weaponless. If this is to occur you may do a couple things:
      * You may continue to use your current merc (who will be weaponless) and hope that an appropriate weapon drops.
      * Or, you may switch mercs and equip it with the third S/U weapon (if of course the merc can equip it, if not it must remain weaponless until an appropriate weapon drops).
    • Sockets may only be filled with emeralds/topaz's (no other gem allowed) and jewels with the green and yellow/gold graphics. Runes are not allowed to be filled into any socket.
    • All charms are allowed as with scrolls, potions, tomes etc.
    • Merc equipment must follow the same rules as your character (socketables and S/U items).
    • Quest items (e.g. Khalim’s Will) may be equipped temporarily only when necessary to complete quests. Quest rewards (Charsi, Anya) may not be equipped.
    • Gambling for S/U items is encouraged!

    Re: Tournament: Envious of the Green and Gold

    Morathi, great iniative! Despite what I wrote in a PM to you, I have decided to join.

    Going to try a combo that probably won´t be powerful, but not hopeless either: Immolation Arrow and Jab will be my main skills.

    Haven't taken either of them into the endgame. Hopefully I will find at least some weapons that are compatible with these skills. I realize there may be a period where I'll be a plain melee Passive & Magic 'zon but at least the normal set bows are common enough to be almost guaranteed to drop in the first half of the quest if I run around with topazed armors/helms.

    Hm, is it really worth it to spend 19 extra points in Jab to see the damage go from 85% weapon damage to 142% while the mana cost more than triples? I am sceptic. OK, so the AR gets a nice boost also, but still...maybe if I find a really big elite unique spear...

    Code:
    Name        Character    Class         Area               Level    S/U's Equipped 
    ----------------------------------------- ----------------------------------
    Morathi     TBA          TBA           Act 1  Normal       1           0
    jiansonz    Martina      Amazon        Rogue Camp          1           0

    Question: what socketables are we allowed to use in 'grey' items?

    Entering as a Fire Druid. Bowled everything to death up to and including the Countess.

    Code:
    Name          Character    Class         Area               Level    S/U's Equipped

    I'm confused by this too, but I understand that any gems/jewels are allowed in grey items, but no runes.

    That would be my guess also.
    This far, I have only used topazes in helm and a +2 max damage jewel in merc's bow. It's a green jewel.


    Martina the Amazon has rescued Cain. Seven of her skill points went to Critical Strike (it's at 49% now). She has one point in Jab, Dodge, Avoid and Inner Sight and two in Slow Missiles. Saving the rest of the points for now. Main weapon is a Scepter (with Pilum on switch, for throwing).

    She's found Arctic Furs and Hsaru's Iron Fist already. She wears the armor but will give it to the merc when I find another topaz. The shield is put away on the javelin switch because my regular Small Shield has better blocking.

    I'm currently time traveling and have a bunch of unfinished tournies already, so I probably won't play this one. Good luck all!

    Welcome everyone

    To clarify, greys can be socketed but must follow the rules stated in the OP, so only emeralds/topazs or jewels with green/gold graphics. If a s/U is to drop though, you must replace your gemmed armour for that S/U immediately!

    In. Time to play my first Valkazon.

    Cassie is headed next to the Stony Field. No Sets or Uniques, but lots of decent charms.
    She is using a normal javelin and a scepter on switch. The charms add lightning resist, fire resist as well as lightning and fire damage.

    Changed class as I already have an untwinked melee character just now.

    Edit: Just to check, is it the same scoring system as the Green with Envy tournaments, or a no score tournament?

    Decided to go with no scoring system. I feel the scoring system was an old tool used when there was heaps of participants in a tourney. I don't feel tournaments now a day needs them as the SPF community is less active than in the old days. Plus keeps it simple .
