    Attaining level 99

    How long did it take you?

    Can it be done without baal or chaos runs within a reasonable period of time? (ie, one-two months of regular play).

    I have *once* gotten to 93, and that was already extremely frustrating. The spf has some mad people, I tell you. :propeller::nod:

    - Hasn't the consensus for ages been that Baal kills are the most effective (the *only* thing effective) for the last few levels? I suppose in sp it might be different since you can make new runs very fast, and you don't need to kill anything else in order to get to kill Nihla. :scratchchin:

    Re: Attaining level 99

    There are some alternative methods like doing nihli and saving the ancients or doing shrine shopping while dia running (SP concept as it relies on static maps). But yes, the SPF has some mad people, I can only recommend checkin some of the 99er threads out.

    Re: Attaining level 99

    Some folks claim that it is best to run Diablo with a character than hasn't patted/matted, then do the Ancients at Lvl 98. :scratchchin:

    Me, well I've made Lvl 94 with a couple of characters and that made me bleed my intestines out through my eye sockets. Good luck! :coffee: :yes:

    In SP it's probably best to do p8 cowruns at patch level 1.09.

    Nobody's gonna argue with that ;) Wasn't that also the patchwhere player settings went to 64 or something ridiculous?

    Re: Attaining level 99

    Took me a little over a year in SP with a CS Hammerdin with saved Ancients but there were a couple of breaks where I didn't really play in 2-3 months.

    Re: Attaining level 99

    I remember something like that as well. It might have been 1.08 instead, however.

    Re: Attaining level 99

    I'm very much probably almost definitely certain it was 1.09b. Players-command was added in 1.09.

    Re: Attaining level 99

    I have a lvl 98 Sorc in Single Player. Started her in Oct 2008 and took around 3 months to get her to where she is through many hours of /p8 Baaling. Haven't really played her (Or SP) since 2010 though.

    She should still be in the quest for 99 topic in SPF.

    Re: Attaining level 99

    If I remember right, in addition of players 64, crushing blow was carried by any missile (could also have been applied to the total hp of monster, not base hp, for much larger chunks of hp removed/hit, but I'm less sure my memroy serves me regarding that), making both bowazons and LF javazons capable of quickly clearing a players 64 game. Due to static field applying with no limit in hell, a nova sorc with high lvl static was also capable of quick cow clearing in that patch.

    Re: Attaining level 99

    Crushing blow is still been carried by missiles, but at half strength, and IIRC it has been like that in 1.09 as well.

    In 1.09, guided arrow was subject to piercing which caused GAs to fly back and forth through the enemy.

    Re: Attaining level 99

    That is right, but for multishot, only the 2 central arows carry the effect in patch 1.10+. In 1.09 every single arrow carried it, (as well as all lightning fury bolts if I remember correctly)

    Re: Attaining level 99

    AFAIK, CB (if that's what you are referring to) is applied to all missiles which deal physical damage, even with MS, just like leech, OW and DS, but I'm not 100% sure, I admit. It's CTC effects which is applied to the 2 central arrows only.

    Regarding LF, only the thrown javelin can apply CB. The lightning bolts don't because they don't deal physical damage. To my knowledge it was like that in 1.09 as well, but now you made me a small bit unsure about that as well :).

    It can be done As:

    A Semi-Weird Hobby Certification.
    Accident
    Plan & Profit or Reverse order and amount of time spent.

    Criminal Behavior or Political

    Hi it's the FBI and we want a trillion SOJ's and the ability to make level 99 at will - it's a "thing" OK so STFU and work with me.

    Make an earth shaking event or something.

    Re: Attaining level 99

    I've gotten to 95 twice, and I feel absolutely no need to EVER go higher than that. I'm perfectly fine stopping at 90 and just letting the exp bar go where it will. Very small return on advancement afterwards. If I was 10 years younger however, I'd probably go for it. Life keeps sucking my free time away for some reason as I get older.
