    The ludicrous crafter

    IF I have plenty of time before the reset, I'm seriously considering making a crafted character for fun.

    - has to beat the game from normal den of evil to hell baal solo (or in cooperation with other craft only characters)
    - can only wear self crafted items (no charms, but potions and scrolls are allowed)
    - will be supplied with a full stash and inventory of jewels/perfect gems/runes (and a horadric cube + 10k gold)
    - has to self-find/gamble magic items (and later on jewels/gems/runes) to craft

    So, what are your suggestions?
    What character(s) would you build?
    What skills would you use?
    What gear would you want to craft?
    Are there other ideas to further "sweeten" this challenge?

    Re: The ludicrous crafter

    Great idea. I've had it myself a couple of times...

    My plan was to use only one type of crafts for a character. Like a Barbarian with only blood crafted items or a safety Amazon.
    Progress would probably be slow if you only used selffound craft material. Also I would not put a limit on gold so you can gamble the correct base items.

    Crafted weapons? You never roll out decent one, which makes it impossible for non-casters.

    your idea reminded me of this tournament: The Three Stages of Life

    For additional challenging ideas, check out the SPF tournament listing

    It's not necessarily about rolling the best crafts there are.

    It's about using the crap (and occassional lucky roll) to beat the game, it's a challenge for a reason.

    There have been challenges with naked chars or cracked items only, I can't imagine using crafted items being that bad :-)

    And you don't need godly stats on a weapon to beat the game, just enough to stay alive and make some progress.

    Re: The ludicrous crafter

    I'm currently thinking of the following:
    - Assassin => Tiger/Cobra Strike & Bootkick (since you can't craft claws...)
    - Paladin => mainly because you can craft scepters, +skills seem very hard to obtain in crafted gear
    - Druid => thinking about a melee werebear, but slightly concerned about physical imuuns and lack of speed?
    (I know the wolf is superior in many ways, but I think the bear is more stylish ^^)

    Btw, has nobody ever proposed crafting class-only items to blizzard?

    ^Isn't fire claws the perfect skill for PIs on a shifter? (I've never done it)

    Re: The ludicrous crafter

    I've never done it either, but I've seen a lot of people have success with FC as a back up.

    Re: The ludicrous crafter

    Here's my prelimenary setup:

    Werewolf - 1 [prereq]
    Lycanthrophy - 12 [enough to get +150% life and a 5 minute duration in Werebear]
    Werebear - 20 [attack form]
    Maul - 20 [primary attack with stun]
    Feral Rage - 1 [prereq]
    Fire Claws - 12 [enough to match the ar rating of Maul]
    Firestorm - 20 [Fire Claws synergie]
    Shockwave - 1 [group stun]

    With all skill quests this should be finished at lvl76.
    The plan is to kill Baal when I reach this level, then the challenge is completed.
    I will use only selfcrafted gear, no charms, and no help from anybody

    Crafted gear:
    Hit Power club [+2 druid skills / +2 shapeshift skills]
    Hit Power shield [increased blocking]
    All other items: Blood [life leech / life / deadly strike / open wounds / crushing blow]

    So, what do you think all?
