Colour Tourney! (Idea Not Original, Dur)

I was just thinking about the old colour tourney that had risen up and was thinking to myself how I had fun playing my character for the first nite before I was banned off Diablo for a while (I think it was about 8 months ago) Anyways I am setting off to start another tourney in its honor.

The Rules
  • You will be HC
  • You may restart once if your character dies or if you are not happy with your character.
  • Your skill select will be by choice.
  • You may select 10 skills and put any amount of skill points into those skills, for example if I was a Sorceress and selected firebolt, fireball, fire mastery, warmth, charged bolt, lighting, chain lighting, telekinisis, teleport, and lighting mastery I could place any wanted amount of skill points into only those skills.
  • You will select a color: Blue, Red, Black, White, Gold/Yellow, Green.
  • In Act 1 you may wear any armor and use any weapons but by Act 2 all visible armor (Helmet, Weapon Slot 1, Weapon Slot 2/Shield, Armor) must be only your color.
  • This will be the color all your equipment must be.
  • You may not MP
  • You may not twink
  • You may not mule (You can only use the inventory space allotted to you)
  • You may play on any player setting.
  • You must complete all quests in the order they are given.
  • You must only clear an area once.
  • Except the area which a act boss resides may be cleared (included the boss) up to three times. (Catacombs Level 2 & 3, Tal Rasha's Tomb, Durance of Hate level 2, Areas 2, 3, & 4 before Baal's Throne Room are also included in this rule)
  • You must update every two weeks even if your character hasn't progressed any or you are assumed dead.
  • When you are able to personalize an item send it to [email protected]. This will be used for the semi-color character named prizes prize stash.

How to Win the Prize
  • Basically the character farthest into the game at the end date wins!

Dates
  • 11 PM Eastern Pacific June 02th is the official start time for this tourney.
  • 10 PM Eastern Pacific July 02th is the official end date..
  • The Prize will be handed out the following week.

Sign Up
  • You must register to win.
  • To register you must post: Your Forum Name, Your Character, Color, Skills Chosen, and Why You Picked That Color.

Have fun! :D

Sounds like a fun Idea , but I think your start time was a little short notice. You might want to think about giving atleast 1 week notice, you'll get more people to join up.

Do you mean like you choose between rare, magical, unique, set, socketed (grey) etc? With the socketed ones when you make a rune word does that count as a unique color? or is that grey still?

What items are red colored?

Did you ever use a Tal Rasha's Set. The items are purple. Did you get it? Items with +life are red mostly...

BTW, why there is no purple? That color is not used for magic/rare items or what?

Hm.. I'll give it a shot since I died quickly in the other tournaments I was joining. I actually was holding back a bit to hold a tourney of my own later on, but I could work on it a little longer so... let's go :)

Forum Name: Sint
Character: Yeller, Barbarian
Color: Gold/Yellow
Skills: Bash, Stun, Concentrate, Howl, Shout, Battle Orders, Battle Command, Iron Skin, Natural Resist.
Reasoning: Well, no special reasons to get this thing going.. Yellow items, since my eye fell on it. Concentrate ... it's been a long long time since I made one, and I actually want some boring play :D

edit.. yeah I knew I was forgetting something, 10th skill = berzerk :)

@Dark Warrior: Yes I understand it was short notice but I wanted it to be where people could sign up adn just start playing. Maybe I should of added that you can sign up at anytime.

@Hrus: AH!! I knew I was forgeting a color. ARGH ARGH. Anyways yes you can pick purple my apologies.

@atigdng: No you just pick a color. For example say I picked Black. I could wear a rare bonehelm that spawned with the color black, a shield socketed with a skull (turns items black), a wand socketed with a skull, and some other armor that was inherintenly black. Get it now?

Items that are red colored, a few off the top of my head items socketed with rubies, im pretty sure any items with the plus life suffix, and any rares that spawn with red as their color.

@Sir Lanksalot: The most common way to change the color of your item is to find a socketed item and either insert a ruby (red) sapphire (blue) skull (black) topaz (yellow) diamond (white) athymist (purple) or an emerald (green) to alter the color. Also rares randomly spawn with a color, some sets are always a certain color, and some uniques have their own unique colors.

@Sint Nikolaas: Glad to have ya on the tourney =D

Thanks. I'm in

Forum Name: Sir Lanksalot
Character: Rouge, Druid

Reasoning: because red = life and life = good, especially in hc.

1) For color, is it color as shown on the screen as you move about, or color as in what the color of the equipment is while viewing your character in the 'inventory' tab?


Example: Boots are blue in color while viewing them on your character in the inventory tab; however are normal color on the screen while moving about.

Which 'color' are we talking about?


2) You have a 3 socket armor and have decided blue is your color; is it always true that if you place a blue gem in the first socket, it will turn that item blue in color?

a. From then it is ok to add other gems as the color is now planted?

b. I have a 3 socketed bow on a merc, color is blue in view of inventory tab, but shows up as white while in the playing view; this will refer back to question #1 on acceptability of color choice.

c. This socketed bow has the first socket a blue gem, then red and followed by topaz; had the color choice wanted been gold, should the topaz been put on first?

3) What color is ethereal considered to be?

4) Prize stash? No muling, so we just go ahead and sell all uniques that cannot be used by our character? Example is that I find a Unique Red Armor and I can only wear Yellow as my color choice; do I just sell the armor?

Those are a few questions I have, and Tundra was confused about #1 for which I did not know. We know you are not talking Blue as in magic, or Yellow as in Rare; but you are talking blue as in having cold attributes or supposedly yellow items having something to do with lightning if that is the color lightning attributes give.

Sounds like fun, here we go:

Forum Name: SwivelGuy2
Character name: FrostyBlue
Class: druid
Color: Blue
Skills: Arctic Blast, Cyclone Armor, Twister, Tornado, Hurricane, Oak Sage, Raven, Spirit Wolf, Dire Wolf, Grizzly
Why blue: sapphires will give mana for arctic blast (my main skill) and it just goes with the whole freezy thing. Yeah. and nobody's picked blue yet.

Edit: Here's a question - gloves and boots - are they visible? should they need to color-match?

As far as i understand it is only the things that can be seen (see above quote). So the gloves and boots can be anything.

FYI: Arctic blast and Inferno are bugged, you won't get anywhere with that skill.

May Warrior of Light take this challenge?

Forum Name: Warrior of Light
Character: WoL_II (it means Warrior of Light Second), Barbarian.
Color: White
Skills: 1) Bash, 2) Double Swing, 3) Double Throw, 4) Frenzy, 5) Howl, 6) Shout, 7) Battle Orders, 8) Battle Command, 9) Iron Skin, 10) Natural Resistance.
Reasoning: White is the favorite color for warriors of light.

“A warrior of the light has the qualities of a rock.
When he finds himself on flat terrain -- all around him is in harmony -- he remains stable. People can build their houses on top of what he created because the storm will not be destructive.
Nonetheless, when they put him on uneven terrain and nothing around him appears to respect or balance his work, he demonstrates his strength rolling in the direction of the enemy who threatens his choice. Without cruelty, but with decision, the warrior does not allow himself to be paralyzed by his adversaries.
A warrior of the light thinks of the good combat and of peace at one and the same time and knows how to act according to the circumstances.â€

The color they show up as while moving around on the screen, only four items effect those colors, Armor, Helm, Weapon Socket 1, and Weapon Socket 2/Shield

Yes the item will always be blue.

a. Yes

b. Never had it happen but it would count as white.

c. Yes topaz should of been inserted first. For example I want a gold bow with 3 sockets I would first insert a topaz, then insert say a gem of wrath, and then say a ral rune.

Condor said:
3) What color is ethereal considered to be?
Depending on what gems are put into socketed ethereal items I believe they change color someone correct me if I am wrong. The unique ethereal go by the same rules as normal uniques would. Same thing for normal ethereals. Basically they follow the same rules as every other item and do not count as a color by themselves.

Condor said:
4) Prize stash? No muling, so we just go ahead and sell all uniques that cannot be used by our character? Example is that I find a Unique Red Armor and I can only wear Yellow as my color choice; do I just sell the armor?
Or you could give it to your merc, they may wear any colors since their outfit is not changed by equipment. Or you could sell it. Either one. Also if you find some amazingly rare item you are allowed to mule it off your character but not back on. Some examples SoJ, Bul Kathos, Etc Etc.

Exactly I was speaking out the actual color property of the item not blue magic or yellow rare. Thank you for your questions I am sure they cleared up a lot for everyone and soon I will add a list of current players in the tourney. Thank you everyone for particitpating and good luck!

How to consider colors of originally colored items? If you look at steel items like helms or swords you can clearly see its color because its original color is white, you just add custom color by socketing of making item rare/set/unique. However if you take an item with non-white original color like crystal sword or cap you may only make it black, but not white. A Cap with sockets becomes black after socketing it with a scull, becomes red-brown, after socketing it with a ruby, however it isn't become white after socketing with a diamond. Is it possible to make “white†cap, crystal sword or any other colored item?

One must only clear an area once. How to be when you save game? For example you completely clear Stony Field, mark its way point, and than save and exit, because you haven't any time to play more. Next day you start the game again. How to play at the Stony Field. May you kill monsters on you way to The Underground Passage? May you kill Rakanishu on the way to Tristram? It is possible to kill no one at Normal difficulty, however you will die this way at Hell difficulty.

Hmmm it has been a while since I have played... I always knew working with coloring schemes with diamonds was different somehow... Sadly i am afraid you can't create a white cap or white crystal sword unless somehow you found a rare that spawned as white as its base color, sorry.

Hmm lets just say normal you have to run through the areas dodging enemies, however in NM and Hell difficulties i will allow you to stay on the path and kill any enemies that threaten you. (Or the shortest route to the path and from the path to Rakanishu.) Hope that helps.
