We saw some impressively-long kill streaks earlier in the beta, constructed largely in the Weeping Hollow area. In those days players spent a great deal of time farming the undead and herding them to allow for non-stop killing, thus setting the stage for huge killing streaks, the best of which took a Demon Hunter around 4 minutes and yielded upwards of 350 kills.
The zombies of the Weeping Hollow have since been nerfed and that location can no longer yield massive kill streaks, but players have found an even better spot. It’s found (once in a while) on Level 4 of the Catacombs, where a golden chest sinks into the floor and triggers a trap, causing four skeleton spawners to appear. This is a fun struggle for level-appropriate characters, where you have to quickly battle through a couple of dozen of skeletons to kill off the spawners. What if you don’t kill any of the spawners, though? Will they just keep making more skeletons forever?
Yes, actually. Watch the movie below to see the full streak, documenting the 11,391 kills in 106 minutes, by a Frenzy Barb. Yes, that’s over eleven thousand skeletons in nearly two hours of non-stop clicking. Thankfully, the video is only a few minutes long and shows the highlights, much of them at fast forward speed.
Click through for another fun video, which collects all of the class/gender *laugh* emotes seen in the Diablo 3 beta.
A fan put together a video showing off all 10 laughter emotes. They’re all pretty good, though the male DH (the last one shown) seemed fake to the point of parody. Like he should have said, “ha ha ha ha ha… NO!” and then murdered anyone who was laughing for real. That’s what I’d do if I were a Demon Hunter, anyway.
