    21 single tree mats/pats

    I think it was back in the 1.09 days, therefore the thread has been well and truly digested by the squid, someone was doing a 21 trees collection of mats/pats. I don't recall who it was, or whether it was completed, but does anyone remember anything about it. I've got a vague idea of completing it myself and I'd like to see how it was done.

    Now there's an idea... *steals*

    Anyway, there are cookie cutters for most of the trees. Which are you having trouble with?

    Depends on whether you allow 1-point utility skills. *Pure* single tree builds are very rare, passivezon and lightning sorc are the only ones I've seen

    A singer barb also doesn't really need points in any other tree, though a few masteries are kinda nice to have. A masteries barb, otoh, makes me shudder...

    As far as I can remember, some of them were done. a barb named passive was single mastery tree only, and it was not as hard as some may suggested.

    I also remember passive tree only zon, combat tree only pally. There are some true single tree sorc, and necro in the past.

    I'm sure there are more single tree only builds around.

    I mean only the skills in any one tree can be used, with the exception of item granted skills.

    I already have:

    Druid summoning tree
    Druid elemental tree (windy)
    Druid shape shifting tree (WB 1.09)
    Assassin shadow tree
    Nerco P&B tree (boner)

    and I currently working on

    Barb war cries tree
    Amazon P&M tree

    I'm sure someone else has done the complete set, I just cannot remember who.

    That does sound like a tough but fun idea.

    are you twinking them? If so i'd highly recommend a kodiak bear, it can easily be done with only the Shapeshifting Tree.

    Also, either way, dont forget to make a Trapsin!

    Vouch. Kodiak bears are fun, safe, effective, and DIFFERENT.

    Don't forget the pure LF zon either!

    I just patted a PnB necro, with skills only in that tree. But that sounds a nice challenge. Maybe I'll start that after I've finished my few other projects.

    Necromancer Curses are going to be absolutely awful. To make that work, you'd need to rely mostly on items alone.

    If you're allowing item-granted skills, may I suggest a Passion runeword for the Offensive Auras Paladin? It'll allow you to get Zeal without putting any points into it.

    I got a curse necro already started actually. I've call him Gordon_Ramsey. :grin: I think I'll use the Trangs set for starters.

    Re: 21 single tree mats/pats

    That's eerie - I had a random thought today that a single tree only tournament would be fun (if it hasn't been done already). As they say, great minds think like mine. :wink3: I think if such a thing were done a mojomancer (curses only) might get a few bonus points.

    Anyway, I'm off to start a Masteries-only Barb.

    Ya a curses only necro would be so long. Didn't a character named Mojo did this with a nice background story a while ago?

    Re: 21 single tree mats/pats

    Oh, I think that a paladin with only defensive auras might have a tough time as well...

    But it does sound like fun... I would certainly read up on any progress reports here!

    Re: 21 single tree mats/pats

    The ones that I think would struggle the most would be Defensive Paly, and mojomancer. The macer would just really let a merc do all the killing and provide crowd control and added damage through curses. CB on the merc would be essential!

    Passivezon would also be a bit slow but safe I imagine.

    Re: 21 single tree mats/pats

    Any 1-tree character can solo the game really. Tetanus (for those who know him from PDF) Mat'd a no stat+no skill sorc, solo. Although he did die ALOT and had to really work on +str/dex twinking and getting life.
    While such extremism isn't necessary, I think alot of these are a good idea because it forces you to break away from the usual builds and focus on on element of the char.
