Ancients tournament Offical start 3rd May

If you wish to play, please update the progress here.

Rules http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=654255

Additional answers for:

why allow MP - I don't expect "most" will MP, however one idea someone may have in mind, and I'd love to "see" is three tournament ancients vs three game ancients. Only MP can deliver this battle.

Why allow trade - if you could MP, or play multiple ancients, a very limited gear sharing is reasonable.

Why limit merc - ideally, only A5 merc might be allowed, but untwink melee, single pass would need a little help or allow some creative merc usage. However merc skill or aura will not be allowed to help crowd control (war cry tree should be enough).

why the score system so "complex" - The point is to reward who do solo single pass full clean without re-run any boss. Harder to play ancient would have bonus points to encourage more challenge play.

I started already (should restart? 11 levels is HUGE lol) but I'll wait to play him more til the official start if I need to. Looking forward to this.


And yes he is named after the noise from throwing something.

Awesome. I started up a barb and have made level 6, and shopped a decent polearm. Probably won't be able to play much until finals are over, unfortunately.

reached lvl12, done first two quests, and of 'cos the first WP (WP in town does NOT count). I have so far found 18 chipped, but only 2 topaz. Gamble hasn't got me anything MF. It seems he will have tough luck.

Re: Ancients tournament Offical start 3rd May

are you planning to keep your char level as low as possible? this is largely single pass, so you know you cannot re-run areas. Lvl7 seems a little low. And if you've done any quest, the score would be higher, I assume that you have 2x WP now, that's 10 points, each quest will give you 10.

Re: Ancients tournament Offical start 3rd May

Quick question....Can we use weapons other than the ones we are supposed to use? What I mean is can we use such items as wands of life tap/lower resist (or throwing knives in some very limited situations, think prevent monster heal)?

edit: I actually have already started to (lvl 12) but I usually just to one massive update at the end of every act.

Good question, what to do with weapon switch. Here is my initial opinion. There would be two things we can use on weapon switch:

1. boost BO, Shout, BC - so you may shop for 2x echo weapon. But you may only use them for the three specified war cry.

2. this is the part I'm not sure. If wands with AD charge exist, you may shop one. Sometimes ancients can be "cursed", we can only reproduce this effect from either CtC or charge.

I wouldn't think you should hit anything with weapon switch.

Re: Ancients tournament Offical start 3rd May

Feel sick and other RL issue, I may not play much this week. I only picked one more WP yesterday, and I don't know when will be the next play time. At least I will be keep this thread in check, and anyone else won't feel bad about starting late.

It might take a bit before anything gets done, as last day of semester is friday. So hopefully, next week will bring violence and bloodshed. Gruk is one of two brothers that made for a hillarious D&D session until the game master suggested that we might not have chosen the exactly right frame of mind for his campaign. I am happy to resurrect him, even if it is only for a short while.

I guess I'm in, with the (suprisingly, IMO) most underrepresented build. Dibs on first death.

It is good see some smooth progress. I felt sick and it is best not to play D2 (otherwise I may kill my char because sleepiness).

Just a quick update to show I've actually started the tournament. Will probably make some progress later today. I've just arrived back from the US so I need to go get some sleep!
