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.
