    Grant The Hardcore Weapon Master

    Like some, the monotony of cookie cutter after over powered build is taking It's toll and now I'm exploring off beat builds and stringent restrictions. I'm going for a character now which could either fail at the first hurdle or surprise me with It's progress. My lastest character is going to have a fair list of restrictions, similar to that off superdave, or Insane Wayne.

    -Hardcore.
    -Single Player.
    -Single Pass.
    -Full Clears.
    -Players 8.
    -No ATMA.
    -Untwinked (Of course).
    -Only cracked/crude/low quality/damaged items, excluding rings, amulets and charms.

    I will have a mercenary using any items I find. I will also be restrictive of my skills and another interesting twist.

    I'll be putting 20 points in each of the masteries and I will only be using a sword in act 1, axe in act 2, mace in act 3, polearm in act 4 and spear in act 5.

    Of the 110 skill points i'll be assigning them in all of the masteries, and should I reach a point where 100 skill points have been assigned, i'll be placing further points into throwing mastery. Depending on interest will depend on how often I update this thread, but I figured what better place to describe my adventures then here :smiley:.

    If you have any questions, feel free to post or PM, I'll be happy to clear it up.

    Gl, what you're doing is more difficult than with a Passive Zon in my opinion.

    You are going to use low quality weapons as well?

    Indeed I am, it's going to be very difficult, I've just cleared out the crypt and mausoleum, as well as the cave, no issues yet, I'll do a write-up at the end of the act.

    That is the idea :smiley:, emphasis is on a challenge.

    Challenge on your patience in the first place IMO.

    Good luck though, and keep us up to date with your progress. :thumbsup:

    10 bucks say you'll drop this project hell act 1 because of THE CHILLING ZOMBIES OF DOOM :)

    Not that they'll kill you, just that it will become incredibly boring to swing chilled. And you WILL be chilled often. Unless you get a Raven Frost off NM baal, that is :)
