    from front page: speed runs

    on the front page today there's an article about doing "speed runs" with diablo 2. pretty sad if you ask me. normal acts 1-5 in 2 hours untwinked but with maps fully scouted beforehand.

    i've been doing some experimenting, and the absolute fastest way is like this with a lightning sorc:
    run to dark woods (15-20 mins)
    do tristram runs until lvl 18 (5-10 mins), use 1 pt charged bolt and 1 pt static to kill everything, lvls 12-18 raise lightning.
    tp through the rest of the game (haven't really tried it with normal, but i can do nm/hell in under 30 minutes with twinks.)

    i basically essentially did this just now up to hellforge, total time was high because i had so much fun killing stuff. :)

    what's the record here? i'm sure you guys have tried it right? twinked and untwinked.

    Yeah...

    I've never really done speed runs before, though I did enjoy some speed runs in goldeneye (The facility level mostly) I guess it never really occured to me to try it for d2. I'd imagine your way would probably be faster that the other dude's what with TP and all, as long as you can kill all the quest bosses to keep advancing the game.

    I tried a similar thing with my lightning sorc. I reached nm ancients at lvl 39 and couldn't figure out why I didn't get the quest :rolleyes:

    usually i do norm baal runs until 40, and nm baal runs until 70-73. this time however, i just went as soon as possible (again killing everything in my way.) i "naturally" ended norm at 27, nm at 50. i fooled around in nm until 62 so i could wear harle in hell (which is still ahead of my normal pace.) i'm at the ancients right now at 71, i might fool around some more until 73 so i can use stormshield/eschutas.

    nope. unless you are talking about the rush tactic where someone else kills baal. but you can get down there AFAIK.

    i did hell in about 2 hrs with my blizz sorc.

    2 hours? I did act 1 in 4 and a half minutes, solo. I lost a lot of time in the underground passage too
