    Re: A suggestion to you all: a SPF D3 SC/HC LADDER

The gold is very limited and has real value then. The previously known plans should be allowed to use only once they drop again ofc.

    It would be nice to join the ladder, but I've invested so much effort into in my SF characters.

    I play all 5 classes, always on similar level, same acts while leveling. Since I've got 5x more loot than just one character, item ugrades are frequent and constant. I salvaged all useless loot and crafted. I have found some legendaries during leveling, all except two were upgrades. One legendary sword from Hell VoA even tripled my dps (from 3k to 10k), just before scary Belial. After that, in A3 Hell the 60+ loot was just too good. Currently having blast in A1 Inferno and I need to start farming better items for finishing the last 3 acts. Thus not even considering another reset now.
    However, I can only recommend SF HC.
    That is exactly the experience I am after, Aremi... coupled up with a feeling of commrodery by playing in a ladder system and sharing and reading experiences with other like minded SPF players such as myself. You could always start a new HC SF char for the ladder, and try to always keep track of what items and gold it has found by itself, I assume a lot would have to work on the honor system, but that is really not a concern for me, knowing there are good, reliable people here for the most part

    If there really is no interest in this idea, I guess I will simply start my own HC SF char and play, ironically enough, as this forum name indicates.. alone

    Salutations Lord_Vega my old friend. I am in and starting a HC character very shortly. I will be recording my starting gold with my character if that is ok, because wiping is just a little too extreme for me... Maybe the rules can be adjusted so you record gold and only spend what is found on a ladder character?

    Good too see you again around these parts, Tasdaz, old friend

    I do seem to see the benefit in applying your method to playing the SPF ladder, as it seems there are not many people willing to wiping completely as I am, and itīs understandable!


    So the way we can do this, is by recording gold on each session played in the ladder, and always keeping track of how much separate gold one has on his/her ladder char. The honor system has worked well in this forum for a long time, and I am sure this great bunch of peaople would trust eachother

    With that being said, I am officially starting my char today, a HC Witch Doctor named Shaka Zulu, named after the most famous leader of the Zulu kingdom Will be fun sinceI cant say Iīve played more than a couple of hours as a WD since getting the game in last May!


    Will be updating the thread afterwards! Feel free to join us!

    Edit: Start status Lord_Vega

    Gold: 0
    Blacksmith level: 9
    Jeweler level: 1
    Purchased stash tabs: 0

    So pretty much a clean slate for me.
    I don't think it really matters how many artistant or stash upgrades we have as it's all going to even up in the end and the main purpose here is fun and commrodery, but I will ask you to post yours before beginning so we all know where we stand

    Tasdaz, good luck on that Wiz!

    It's been a while, just like you lost interest in D3 too quickly. Just started my HC wizard HCLover.

    Starting gold: 131,364

    Edit: Sold all my HC items in my stash Starting Gold now 143,662 and stash empty

    It is indeed not a bad idea with a SPF ladder, but as you see a lot of those interested have already taken the leap previously and restarted as self found so doing it again seems counterintuitive. Despite some of us having slightly different honor codes in what is necessary for a restart I would still allow them to join with their current chars just to get more people to join.

    A suggestion for people who are restarting but don't want to abandon their non-ladder chars completely is to trade your HC gold to SC gold (if you've played HC) and then sell your gold on the RMAH. Then it doesn't interfere with your regular gold pile and you don't have to remember that you have 8.7 mil or w/e you can't use but it can be converted back to gold easily.

    I think the idea is to at least start a new character for the ladder and only use self found items/gold on ladder characters

    First update from the Zulu madman!

    Name Level/Paragon Profession Ladder Gold Highest Difficulty Alive/Dead
    HCLover 1/0 Wizard 0 Normal Alive
    Shaka Zulu 11/0 Witch Doctor 9303 Normal Alive






    Tasdaz, would love for you to edit the brackets a little bit, since you are definitely more tech saavy than me, hehe... I would like a build as well as a SC/HC option, even if that is rather clear from the dead/alive bracket. Even if builds are changing all the time here in D3 land, being able to see what the top living players are playing would be motivational to new entrees, I feel


    As for Shaka Zulu, he is my very first attempt at a WD and such, I do not have almost any experience playing the char. All I know so far, is that firebats is a kickass skill in the beginning of the game, and that having a few meatshields is a great advantage when playing HC!

    I think I will have to read more on WD builds, and find one that works well with my playing style. One based on Acid Cloud and perhaps firebombs, would be rather sweet, me thinks!


    Here's my build so far, having gotten to level 11 and right before taking the ferry over to Worthham.

    http://diablonut.incgamers.com/skill...E3OTY4KzArMCsx

    Shaka Zulu has been faring pretty well so far in HC land. The doggies support nice meatshield defense between him and his foes, while he peppers them with poision darts from afar, and firebats from close distance.

    The first nice surprise was this little gem right here:

    295r4ag.jpg


    It might not be much, but nice to see old Griswald has served his purpose even after having turned into a rotting corpse! It was a nice upgrade and a farily decent low level weapon!

    Leoric was not at all dangerous, seeing as I am playing on mp1, and will probably keep doing so for most of my playtime with this character. His WW attack managed to scrape Shaka once, but a nice HP pool and some manouvering around fixed that issue quickly! He even was kind enough to drop this, a nice upgrade for a poor bushman!

    Lastly, Shaka has started experimenting with crafting, something that is probably going to be used A LOT during his journey, and managed to craft himself a nice lvl 17 weapon... self found and self made feels great!

    This is it so far, taking a short break, but will surely play some more today, as it's the weekend, and I have no plans but to relax and chill!
    Hope to hear of your adventures as well! Stay alive and prosper!

    As Tasdaz said, the idea is to strat from scratch (as much as possible) and race towards the higher levels. If we'd allow high level paragons to enter, this whole thing would be a moot point.

    I love your idea to convert gold, though!

    How about joining the ranks, Pandadude?
