    Happy new year! Good question... I did a lot of stuff in D2 last year, in comparison 2019 will be much less I guess. I'll probably be travelling until April, but once I return I think I'll give these a try:
    • Finish sept with only items from untwinked 99ers and niche builds (currently three characters done).
    • Try to get a Guardian (likely Sorc to run LK after in order to get a few essentials in HC).
    • Progress untwinked 99er Paladin.
    • Grail... sure why not. At -1 now but that's Tyrael's. :rolleyes:
    Apart from the sept above, there are a few other Mat/Pat "fun projects" on my list. CtC melee Necro, Hunter Druid, Passivezon, etc. etc. ;)

    Hope everyone had a happy, healthy, and D2-filled 2018! Onwards to 2019!

    • Continue to trade with every single person I can on the trade forums. I'm doing my best to churn up as much activity as possible so we hopefully draw in some new traders.
    • Work towards acquiring the runes for Faith and double Dreams
    • Come up with more crazy builds

    Hmm goals

    Shouldn't be too hard to Mat my untwinked 99er this year being she already in Act 2 Hell, only thing stopping me progressing has been not having a decent chunk of time to progress so been doing the odd AT run instead.

    Have several other characters i should work on.

    With my 99er in Hell i could compete in some tourneys i suppose ;)

    Proably should start a thread covering what my characters are and what progress i make too.

    1. Finish the 3-way Redux tournament with at least one Guardian.
    2. Finally start working on my planned Baldur's Gate character sept.
    3. Finally get the courage to start a character in the Untwinked 99er thread.
    4. Run enough LK to get the runes for the most useful runewords (Enigma, Infinity, Grief, Fortitude).
    5. Make a dent in the grail which is currently at a number too large to reasonably put a minus in front of it.

    @smloeffelholz Get going on 3. already !!! It doesn't take courage at all. Just a moment of too much enthusiasm ;). And then a few 100 more hours of that.

    Well, let’s see here. I’ve been collecting so many items for different ideas, and hopefully I can get some of those going this year. The primary goal in that is to make a magic item only Barb and a rare item only Sorc, plus some kind of character class based on CTC Frost Nova.

    My main goal is to make progress on my 99’er Sorc, and work on my all time grail count of -10 Unique and -4 Set items(2 Griswolds and 2 Cow King) along the way. The two Cow King pieces could probably be done fairly easy if I get my Amazon out of the garage and do some Cow Runs. I also want to make use of all the stuff I have found to build a character for each class that is end game geared.

    The limiting thing on my 99’er is me and my playstyle. I’ve watched the videos of all the great 99’ers we’ve had on the forum, and have read their play styles and tips. I know what I need to do, but I’ve just never been a huge fan of jumping around that the CS really requires to get a decent XP per hour rate. I like killing the regular monsters and boss packs, and big groups of them, but unfortunately they are worth very little XP which contributes next to nothing towards the goal. My luck with those monsters dropping items has been very bad for the most part, so that should be motivation enough to skip them. We will see if I can make progress on my stubbornness.

    I hope everybody has a great 2019!!!

    Take longer and enjoy it - play how you like. Fordyl did full clears of CS on P8 for quite a while.

    Is there a thread for this? I've had a quick look on SPF and PvP but couldn't see anything...

    1) Find a jah and make an enigma for my ww barb.
    2) Rack another shako or 3.
    3) Find a zod and socket an eth ribcracker for my druid.
    4) Don't die.
    5) Find time to play D2.

    Hi everyone. Brand new to the forum and just made an intro thread. This post inspired me to go on and do a complete restart and join this awesome community. I'd been playing about 8 months total before this. So my yearly goals will be:

    1) Start unwinked 99er sorceress, and get her to lvl 90+
    2) Get 75% + of grail
    3) Patmat the 3 classes I haven't played yet (assassin, druid, barb)
    4) Make an enigma (we'll see on this one as I'm not feeling too keen on LK atm)

    Hey guys, just posted an intro thread. I've been a d2 player for a long time, but I'm new to diabloii. Starting fresh to not be tainted :p These might look like Luhkoh's goals. We're friends irl.
    - Start untwinked 99er sorc and get to 90
    - Get to -50 on a new grail (too ambitious?)
    - Make infinity
    - Mat a kicker/ds sin

    My biggest goal of the year is make Enigma. That will then lead into my next 2 goals:
    1.) Make a teleporting summoner/CE necro
    2.) Make a teleporting Pit Zerker.

    Outside of Enigma related goals:
    1.) Get fireball/orb sorc to 96+
    2.) Finish my howling berserker 2h barb
    3.) Make a wwsin
    4.) Make a cow farming Javazon
    5.) Make an Infinity for aforementioned Sorc/Javazon

    So really, most of the goals could be summed up with: Get lots of high runes! lol

    Ever since I started watching llama speedrun, I've wanted to see twinked hell speed runs. I think you can get under 2 hours for sure!

    Interesting thread, when I can motivate myself to play D2 my goals are:

    - pat/mat some chars like:
    Blaze sorc
    Feral rage druid
    Some amazons
    - try another 1-2 pvp chars
    - Get 1 twinked char to 99 (probably zealot)
    - level some classic chars

    I think it will be enough for 2019 :)

    Happy new year SPF!

    My D2 goals this year:

    Pat/Mat some characters, at least a few more than the last year.

    Host the RFL again! I think I'll stick to the (about) same schedule as 2018, starting somewhere down the March. I'll put the thread up few weeks in advance so we will be able to have the pre-discussion and planning fun!

    That's about it, for the rest of the year I'll go with whatever feels the best at that moment. Sure, I've some "item goals", but these just can't be forced within a one year. For sure I'll keep up the never-ending grind for even better items, though :D

    I want to find a 1.09 Schafers and Windforce. Not crazy enough to try to find a 1.08 windforce.

    Hey, Steel Pillar's a great item at -2. Much better than Tyrael's Might that's for sure.

    Agreed. I would have preferred to find it in SC though, as there it would have been a grailer at -13, where finding grailers is much harder.

    @Grape Nice that you'll host another RFL. I was expecting it to be at around the same timeframe as last year. For me personally a bit earlier would work better. Last year the RFL ended at the end of May, but I expect to be very busy this year in May. So I wouldn't mind the RFL to start in February, maybe even the end of January. But obviously I go with whatever timeframe is chosen. Maybe put up a thread asking for everyone's preference? Unless your own time schedule doesn't permit a start before March of course.
