Ten thousand, the greatest number expressed in Ancient Greek as a single word

I thought of this as long-term goal of mine for D2, and wanted to see if it would interest anybody else. Or, perhaps, somebody has already achieved this feat? The objective is simple: attain a combined 10,000 levels with your D2 characters.

Depending on your average level, this will require 110-130 characters to complete. That seems like a ridiculous number. But, for those that enjoy simply playing through the game, it can be done. I figure this will take me over a decade to accomplish.

My target number will be 120 characters. Hitting lvl 80 with all of them will give me 9600 for my total. The remaining 400 will be made up through 80x 5-lvl increments. A lvl 85 character adds 1 increment, a lvl 95 character adds 3 increments, etc etc.

Haha. Thanks, the levels add up quickly when you don't play characters to 95+ At least this will hopefully keep me motivated to "finish" my characters. I have many at various stages throughout the game, and I just leave them sitting. Gotta get them to Pat/Mat in order for those levels to count! ;)

I'll add mine to your startup list, just to have some comparison with years playing, number of chars, and ~levels. I won't be competing though, but I believe mine could be in the 3000's. I don't think I'd have the energy to do triple what I've got. XD

Maybe put some extra stats in the table: HC/SC/Both, year of last restart (mine was when I joined spf in '06 I believe,) anything else?

Oh, and good luck! The SPF never ends their surprises with insane goals and feats.

Good idea, I'll add in those stats. Yea, I'm approaching 3000. But, a lot of those characters aren't Mat/Pat-ed.. :oops:

Edit: Just curious, does anybody know if there is a limit to the number of characters you're allowed to have on the character screen?

I have 62 characters in 1.14d so at least that many.

Not all my characters are Mat/Pat though. I have several Champions over level 90...If we include all characters whatever their title, I have 3818+ levels.

EDIT 1: @DiabloTwoinDC When I saw the title of the thread, thought it was one of those spambots. Then I saw your name.

EDIT 2: Just counting Mats/Pats = 2241

This is excluding other Patches like 1.09 which are currently mothballed on an External HD.

62 characters, very nice. How many Mats/Pats? I'll put you at the top of the list! :)

26 Mats/Pats

I also have those Champions that are pretty much all there but stopped to run Pindle/Meph etc. and only have Baal left. My highest character is a lvl 95 Blizzard sorceress that is in Pindle running mode and gear.

Added mine. I have only included my HC chars. I have +3 extra SC characters and more than 5 Median XL chars which I haven't included (keep it to Vanilla/FAM D2, otherwise it just gets needlessly messy; Lvl 120 in Median is easy compared to 90+ in D2.) These Median chars include 1 HC lvl 120, and 4 SC lvl 120.
Best of luck getting to 10,000 levels!

Edit: Ah, I read again, and only chars having beaten Baal on Hell are counted. The Median HC chars have not beaten Hell - I planned to try to cheese them through the bugged Baal which dies as soon as he loses one of his immunities (he has full immunity to all damage, but randomly loses one every now and then,) but Baal wave number 5 has an insta-kill that I could not find a work-around. The SC Median chars have beaten Baal.

@Drystan Nice! Especially for median HC, I don't mess with that. I tried median once, when I got two act 2 some meteor fell from the sky and killed me. Also it seems that barrels are way more deadly than regular D2. So I don't think I will be trying median HC anytime soon haha.

I originally started playing around 2003 and had an account on here called @ioupain. However, I had a long break (and forgot my password to that account) so I returned to the game around 1.10 or 1.11 in 2007.

I've moved forward with every patch from 1.09, but rather than list them all, just say that all my active characters are 1.14d. I did do some time travelling in 1.09 for nostalgia, but I'll leave them off for now. I have my first HC character in the S/U Worshippers tourney but only level 6 lol.

PATCH: 1.14d
STATUS: FAM
SC/HC: SC

EDIT 1: @DiabloTwoinDC hope it's ok that I updated the table and changed 'Characters' to 'Mats/Pats' so it's clear further down the thread that we are only counting characters that have killed Hell Baal.

EDIT 2: Also changed to Universal Date Format since we are an international bunch...

Great changes, ioupain. Love the added details and tidying up!
I should note, that I have one level 63 character 1.07 Rack Runner included.

@fearedbliss - Median is great, but in no way is it hardcore friendly. I knew that when I started it, but it's that challenge that thrills me. There are way too many insta-kills, and areas that you will die in, but as to questing, I ran a SC char first to explore the areas, and determine the most dangerous instakills, and then quested through the same area in HC.
There were goals I had in Median, but I get bored in SC. I run in, and die. I run in with no gear, and die again. After <10 deaths, trying to recover a body, I get bored and give up. The deaths mean nothing, and I get more enjoyment from those risks and having to restart - the questing part of the game. I've had several HC Median chars up to Hell Baal, but was never confident in getting through all five Baal waves. Some characters got "GG Noob" (deeds), but there is still at least one up to Hell Baal. As said, I did want to use the Median bugged Baal to cheese one Guardian, but the final wave had an insta-kill I couldn't work out how to confidently avoid. :)
Then, I stopped because I was using Shared Stash for Median only, and, while cleaning up my files, I deleted these files called "sharedstash" or something similar, wondering what they were. Surely, since I don't recognise them, they can't be that important...
Months/maybe a year later, after reinstalling, I went through my files, trying to work out where my items went, only to realise I deleted all my near-complete Sets and HC Median wealth. >.> Never went back to it after that.

As to standard D2, I've had more Guardians. I've had uncountable HC Guardian deaths - I believe most would be Blizz sorces, so many deaths to Pindle, but other areas as well. If we counted deedz Guardians, my tally would be over 4000 levels. That is a shock to me. And @DiabloTwoinDC wants to get 10,000! That would be quite the feat.
I know there are others with more than me, so would love to see what variety we have here.

@Drystan lol yea personal stash items are stored with the character I believe, but shared stash items are in the separate file that all characters can access.

I have deleted so many chars... even those my 1st two which made to Hell but never passed it...
Still remember a sorc without TP (or so?) which couldn't pass through Hell ancients and conc barb (?) who was unable to pass through Blood Moor (Hell difficulty).

Staying out of this one. Maybe in one of the next afterlives if I will be playing D2 then :D

The levels are for Mat/Pat/Guard only (I've only got one lvl 87 Guardian but he deserves a mention). I've got no way of telling how many levels I've got racked up in uncompleted and deleted characters.
