    So I want to preface this by saying that what I'm about to do will take a very long time, I would like to thank @Baltha for the thread he recently created that has inspired me. We all know I post a lot of photos so over time this will probably be the largest thread on here. xD I will post all good finds as we go as well!


    --------------------------------------------------------

    A few things;

    I have already deleted ALL other characters.
    I have deleted all GoMule stashes from all computers + backups.


    Goals:

    7 United Guardians.


    Rules:

    -Dead is dead.
    -All self found/untwinked.
    -P8 for Norm & NM, Hell is whatever I want. xD
    -Must get all WP's (Exception; Halls of Pain - Pindle Farming purposes)
    -Must do all Quests. (For Imbue, Socket and Naming, just doing the quest is fine, handing in isn't required)
    -Re-Rolling maps is allowed once final act boss has been killed.
    -Trading Between Characters Is Allowed.
    -Once an item is equipped on either a Hero or a Mercenary it may never be traded to another hero on the walk.
    -There can never be more than a 2 Act spread between the lead hero and the hero in last place meaning if I have one hero in A3 Hell all the rest must be in a minimum of Act 1 Hell. This also means that if 7 of the heroes are in hell act 3 and 1 dies, the hero must be re-incarnated and taken to act 1 hell at the very least before progression on the rest is made.
    -I am allowed to farm any boss on any difficulty that has been completed.
    -To make this interesting I am going to do some builds I have never done before on single player, they also have to go pure build the entire way due to being able to trade between heros. This simply means I can't go fire trapper and swap to light dancer when I see fit.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    Amazon: Strafezon.
    Assassin: Lightdancer.
    Necromancer: Poisonmancer.
    Barbarian: Zerker.
    Paladin: Hammerdonk.
    Sorc: Blizzard.
    Druid: Windy.

    So we begin. :)

    very similar to my project, except i am keeping all mine within 2 acts of each other which has been quite painful with deaths!

    I bet some builds will struggle to keep up with the others. Good luck!

    @crawlingdeadman

    Thank you sir.


    @BKC

    Thanks again. :Did


    @Jonesy_Pantz

    Yeah, honestly I am debating between leveling the harder ones first or the easier ones first... Tough call!


    @Baltha

    Some builds will struggle for sure, I'm hoping that I can level the hard ones before the easier ones to make the challenge seem simpler.


    -------------------------------


    Did a bit of playing today, these dropped... To bad they didn't have REP, would have been really fun for someone. :D
    [​IMG]


    I'm going to be saving stuff like this for each character, things that seem decent. :) I've never leveled a MA sin at all so I really have no idea how good they are/what they need.
    [​IMG]


    I'm sure we can use this on someone who needs low FHR to save their life.
    [​IMG]


    First dual mod charm, nothing too crazy.
    [​IMG]


    This has to be a failed unique... It's unreal for a no level requirement and crazy durability.

    Played a bit more tonight, found biggins on my way to cain... I'll save that for someone who will need mana I think. :)
    [​IMG]


    Got this for saving cain, will keep for Bawz
    [​IMG]


    Wont be farming countess on Frank, wayyyy to far. :(
    [​IMG]


    Second character I've had arctic drop for me as a first set, Frank will use this. Anything to mitigate damage as we get to duriel. I'm already level 15... May get to hammer her haha. :D
    [​IMG]


    Quest drops, nothing useful for Frank, maybe later Ral Ral or something.

    @T72on1

    Yeah it's going to be a challenge. I felt if I did all cookie cutters it would be easy but you know this is something where I can play a character and if I'm not liking the challenge I can play something else and they can help eachother.

    ----------------------------------------

    Played some more today, managed to get Andy done so far on Frank, will do poison necro next I think. I feel like he will be a grind and a half, may do Xia the strafer however because I think that one will be the largest grind until hell....

    ----------------------------------------

    Gambled this, not sure why as I'm almost level 18 already..
    [​IMG]


    May make a malice out of this for the barb, I really don't know what the best 3OS weapon is for malice...
    [​IMG]


    Very nice find early on. :)
    [​IMG]


    Took out andy, had to go through all my light mana pots and all my light health pots and town once but it wasn't a hard fight by any means.
    [​IMG]


    Managed to do all quests!
    [​IMG]


    Also got all of the waypoints, may continue with him for A2 or do someone else, we shall see. :)

    @Baltha

    If I can find one, was checking the damages between the two, CS isn't that much different, any specific reason you recommend it?

    ---------------------------------

    Played Laila a bit this evening once I got Frank to A2, never played a Kick/Light sin so it's proving to be interesting at this point... Really I just use Level 1 BoS and Face Tank everything at this point. Use Talon on bosses.

    ---------------------------------

    Found this ring, put it on her. Can't say I'd use the FCR stats on anyone else, I've kept a few 10% FCR rings I've found.]

    Stash is a staff that sells for 5k+ and a 3OS bow which will be Xia's starter weapon I think. I've been keeping all magic rings/amus to cube up, unsure if that's needed or not in this type of playthrough.
    [​IMG]


    Nice and close, with BoS.. I'll proibably farm a few Tal+Eth combos while I hunt for malice runes aswell.

    Countess can be so kind at times.

    Played a bit more tonight, got three sets of Tal + Eth. Going to move forward now and get all to Act 2. :)

    I actually got lucky with countess on the Tal / Eth but nothign else really... Only had double runes drop 3x in my runs too...

    4x Eth
    6x Ral
    4x Tal
    1x Tir

    Which means no malice runes.... Will have to farm some more in the future.


    Also found this while running countess, will use on Laila,

    Well, Longsword is faster (-10 vs. 0) and deals a bit more base damage on average (11 vs. 10), so it's strictly better than the crystal sword.

    That's fair, if I can find one I will use it. :D

    -------------------------

    Did some more on Laila today, took down Andy but nothing else exciting, hit level 17... Was a pretty long fight and no good drops.

    Well last night and this morning have been good, decided to try leveling the needler and testing his ability to push forward. At first I didn't like him at all, couldn't do anything until level 6 and really didn't start shining until level 12 haha. Now however I'm having a lot of fun with him, he deals a lot of DoT, I cast amp, hit everything once and Debi destroys them. :)

    ---------------------------

    Could do some Raka farming but no point in Norm.
    [​IMG]


    I've found one of these on all 3 characters so far, so strange I normaly don't find them at all.
    [​IMG]


    Countess giving me more Stealth runes, I haven't even found a single 2OS armor yet.
    [​IMG]


    The hammer was literally in the furthest possible spot from the entrance possible.
    [​IMG]


    Arctic belt, lots of Defense. :)

    Also very welcome vs andy coming up!
    [​IMG]


    Got all WP's, I'm level 18 now and just realized that I needed Teeth + CE to get to Poison Explosion so AoE isn't up and running as of yet...
    [​IMG]


    Andy prep 101
    [​IMG]


    She was easy, had to use all pots pretty much but doubled down on antidote potions for me and merc, tanked andy and cast amp/resummoned golem. Timely but simple.
    [​IMG]


    Quests done! Not sure who I'm going to go with next...

    Just buy the first 2 os light armor Charsi sells. They are not expensive and the defense doesnt matter.

    Flail for Malice has better range and slightly higher average damage. You can shop them in Act 2 pretty easily.

    @Baltha

    Yes, I could haha, honestly just don't care enough to do it. I will soon however.

    @ArtOfSenf

    That's also true. :)

    @Yng

    Didn't think of that, thanks! I'm going to have to arm runes for Malice still, don't have any of the required runes haha.


    -------------------------------

    Played some more today, Bowa is by far the one I like the least so far. I feel like I get a sore wrist from holding down left click to fire arrows none-stop lol... 4/7 in A2 Normal now, trecking along. :D

    -------------------------------

    Raven took some time... No skills really to use as of yet. :/
    [​IMG]


    More Eth's!
    [​IMG]


    This charm will be a keeper for a long time!
    [​IMG]


    I feel fantastic when I go the first way haha!
    [​IMG]


    Got all of the waypoints!
    [​IMG]


    ANOTHER Arctic.. -_- GRAIL COMPLETE FOR ARMOR JEBUS!
    [​IMG]


    Was a long fight, had to stack poison pots 3x but wasn't scary by any means.
    [​IMG]


    Quests complete. :)
