    Enter the Septuple Sept

    Well, inspired by Sidhe and her sidhavirate I've decided to lay down my next project as well. (Aside from writing teh guides, that is). So, I've tried to come up with 7 builds for each of the 7 chars to make a septuple sept. That ought to keep me busy for a few months. :D

    All the chars will be playing by my usual rules. HC, light to hard twinking, depending on the build, FE Mod, players settings as I please, full clears ony if I feel like it. Unless I play some of them as part of a tourney, then it'll be whatever these rules allow. Also, I'll be taking care of my ribcracker sept at the same time. The builds range from good old cookie cutters to the usual NF builds: Kinda hard but not really totally wacky. I just don't play chars like that.

    I haven't decided on the actual skill placement for them but the rough builds are done. Also there are a couple I'm not really happy with but I couldn't come up with any other halfway realistic builds for those chars right now. Especially the necromancer lacks variety in the builds he allows. The actual builds are pretty versatile but there are only 3-4 good ones. The ones I'm kinda unhappy with are marked with a (?) and might be changed later on. :) So, here's the gang:

    Amazon

    So you will have 49 Guardians by then... Holy stuffs. :D Good luck on this. I do think you are done before D3 comes out though.

    Can I have some of the crazy you are smoking?? If Bush could get re-elected I guess this is possible too. Good luck Nightfish! What kind of time frame are you operation with or is it just before D3:)

    Isn't that last necro just an overlord? Max skellies, mages, revived, a golem, a mercenary and some curses to complement.

    Also, if you don't know any barb builds you could take a look at uzziah's magi-barb or make yourself a bowbarb :)

    Good luck!

    Haha, thanks people, I do think I'll be done before D3 is out for sure. Seeing as the last guardian took 4 days of playing while I was working from 9 to 6 I do think I'll get this done somewhen in the future. Will take a few months, though.

    If he were I wouldn't mind since I have no real overlord yet. But this one will just use skellies and nothing else. A couple of the necros are somewhat similar but as I said, there's not a lot of variety available. Not that it matters if 2 out of 49 builds are similar...

    Good Luck with that NF, you might need it, although you don't have to watch out for FE with the mod I suppose.

    Depending on how many of them die it shouldn't take too long, if you are twinking. It'll still be a good couple of months I expect though

    I think the ribcracker builds sub-sept should be top priority.

    your ribcracker druid should have used fire claws, for a firecracker effect :D
    fireclaws/rabies is a viable option

    Sheesh, people doubting my sanity again, just you wait...

    Yeah Gohan, the good ribcracker chars will be among the first to play. I'll delay the amazon, though. Not sure I'll keep that one around in the end.

    Sidhe, nope, it's gonna be more than 156 days since you forbade me to play as fast. ;)

    Sledge: Ya, fire/rabies might work but I like to go Physical/Elemental if I can. Also I have no stone for synergy cheese.

    Necro: I don't know what a templar is, sorry. ^_^

    People convinced me that FoH sucks for pvm and I've got enough other builds for the paladin so I'm not getting one.

    I listen to almost everything you say. It's just that I only ignore it most of the time... ;)

    Thanks AE, I think I'll need some of that luck for a couple of them chars.

    20 Raise Skeleton Mage
    20 Skeleton Mastery
    20 Corpse Explosion

    Makes your quest of 7 guardians look pretty average doesnt it? :p
    I dont like how every other pally build has some cryptic name. all of builds you can pretty much guess the main skills. but i would have no idea what a vindictor is, or a templar, or a smiter (well ok i could guess the last 1, but my point is still valid)
    Oh and that leaper barb, in HC leap attack is a potential death trap because it can suddenly stop working, and if you dont notice until your surrounded by big hurty things, your in trouble.

    Yeah, probably. But what other not-totally wacky build is there?
