    The untwinked level 99 progress thread


    I've been mulling over a go at a level 99 character for quite some time now , but could never feel like I was properly motivated. The idea of doing a completely untwinked level 99 really got my interest going. I like the idea of having her drops be meaningful and having motivation to keep running. I also think it will be fun to see what she can accumulate over her journey.

    Rules:
    ~No twinking! So no trading or using any items that your other characters have found.
    ~Muling is allowed and you can save any item she wants to use later.
    ~No MP games except to reset a map in normal.
    ~Version 1.13+

    pretty simple really ;)


    And now for her first update!

    May I first introduce you to....Ohms_Law! The title pays homage to my occupation as an electrician, and also to the fact that she may some day become a lightning sorceress :nod:

    She now resides at the start of act 2, she has run the countess for some basic runes and made her self a leaf staff in a +2 Fireball base. She will start her life as a Blizzballer. This is a build I've not yet tried, but always looked fun. I've gotten my first set/uniques arctic furs and the gnasher.


    I will be keeping track of a couple things as I go:

    Level:19
    Current time: 2h
    Deaths:0

    If there's anything else you think would be fun to keep track of then feel free to suggest it.


    From what I can tell I am now 1/5th of the way to 99, so expect her to be finished in a few days ;)

    Re: My untwinked level 99 progress thread

    Cool idea! But you're not going to make it.. ;)

    You should definitely keep track of all the S/U's you find. But since she's untwinked I suppose you are already putting her stuff in an seperate stash.

    And and and.. Delete character -> remake in HC.

    Re: My untwinked level 99 progress thread

    cool statistics ?
    I keep screenshots of everytime I've met boss named GoreSkull the Impaler.
    He scares me no matter what form he's in, so I gotta keep track of those encounters.

    other than that, no idea :p

    Thanks everyone but FoE ;)

    Your disbelief will only fuel me on :D

    And by all means, if anyone wants to join in and give me a bit of competition, feel free :)


    I could keep every s/u, that would be funny. See if that green BP really takes the cake :p

    Nice name and idea.

    I'd love to join but i've got too little time as it is. So unless you can manage to put more hours in a day i'll have to say no.

    Something to keep track off: how much of a grail you'd get with her and number of Baalkills (assuming you're gonna run him).

    And if disbelief fuels you, you may make it in a few days. I think the entire SPF doubts you'll make it :p. GL and i hope you prove me wrong.

    Re: My untwinked level 99 progress thread

    I think I'm going to lay off the mf'ing and take part in something like this.

    I like the idea of making a char and doing a self-found char, and self-found grail.

    I haven't decided what kind of char I want to do but I'm pretty sure that it will not be a sorc since that is basically all I have ever played.

    Sounds like a fun project, though it will take some time. You NEED good gear to do Baal Runs in hell. At least at anything more than /players 1. So I think you need to spend a lot of time farming before you can start exping at a somewhat good pace.

    I'm leaning towards a zon, probably starting out as a strafeazon.

    Sounds old school. I like it.
    Maybe you should track the number of unique items or something. Maybe you should even list them.

    Will follow progress.

    Re: My untwinked level 99 progress thread

    I'm probably going to keep a stash of everything cause hoarding is fun and it doesn't make my house unlivable like that tv show.

    I'll probably keep the run counter going at all times at least through the questing / farming phases for an overall time. Then when it's down to the nitty gritty and time to run baal, i'll keep track of the runs/run time and add it all up at the end.

    Pretty darn excited about all this.

    Maybe we should just start a tournament instead of invading kestegs thread.

    I will definitely be doing some farm runs to get up some good gear before I get heavy in to Baal. Which is fine, as you can still get good experience before 95ish on other targets.

    I expected to get some doubters, its a tough task. And welcome Josh, a javazon could do very well with some decent gear.

    Edit. I had considered making it a tournament but didn't really expect to get any serious interest. I can always get the thread title changed it just start a new one, lets see if there's any more interest.

    My goal for now is to punch through to hell as fast as I can so I can start running some good targets. And get an insight of course....

    Yeah I also plan on farming/mf a lot till I get a nice setup. I realize that this is a daunting task but I'm in!
