    Hello :)
    I managed to beat the game in Hardcore Single Player with a Paladin without using any items on him or his mercenary at all.
    That is called Naked Challenge. I know people who completed the game like that with an assassin, druid, necromancer and sorceress.
    As far as I know noone has ever done it with paladin. To be honest, I never though that paladin is possible at all.
    With no summons and no crowd control skills how are you supposed to survive in hell?
    I used holyfire zeal in first 3 acts of normal and then switched to hammerman and sticked to it all the way to the end.
    This was by far the hardest and most stressful thing I've ever done in this game.
    I streamed all of this walkthrough on my twitch channel. The video shows hell part only.
    Funny thing is, in nightmare I had 5hp and 14hp close calls, so this video might have never happened!
    Enjoy :)

    Rules:
    SP Hardcore
    No items, no charms
    All quests, all waypoints
    All cow kings
    No 20 life potions
    No resistance scrolls
    Naked act 3 merc

    Been wanting to try this for a while now on Assassin, just haven't got around to it. No 20 life potions/resistance scrolls with no charms or Merc gear is pretty insane, well done!

    E: did you really punch down Normal Andariel? How long did that take lmao?

    I always thought a naked paladin would be based on fist of heavens primarily, to strike from a distance, but evidently the hammers are strong enough to make up for the close range. The claw viper temple looked especially nasty.

    Completely awesome and impressive, congratulations!

    Very nice work!

    Hey thanks for all comments :)
    The no 20life potion and resistance scroll rule I added myself, thought it would be cool to have that sweet -100 all res in hell and collect all these items in stash!
    I did punch down not only Andariel, but Duriel and Mephisto as well, wasn't too bad, holy fire with zeal deals pretty good damage.
    I also thought about switching to foh for hell, but it doesn't do enough damage, when monsters run to you and there's nowhere to hide what do you do then? Also max vigor was pretty much a must anyway, as it is the only mobility skill. So my idea was to kill stuff faster than it can kill me lol. Hammerman is pretty op :)

    Epic accomplishment. Thanks for sharing the video, it was very entertaining. Also cool how you utilized your imbue/socket/personalization, and saved the other quest rewards. You had a quick and clever combination of aura switching to keep this guy alive (not to mention potion drinking). Well done!

    Now that he achieved such a feat, will he be rewarded with any equipment?

    Thanks! I think giving him items would ruin him, going to leave him that way as a trophy character to remind me of this walkthrough :D
    I don't like hammermans anyway, way too op for me, so naked one is the only one I can handle haha.

    Yes, this was player 1, but most of the stuff still could 1-2 shot me :p

    Jeez man that's one hell of a stressful challenge. I'd imagine at times certain packs would be very lengthy. At least you can buy mana pots though, if you did this in an older patch without them it would be... well who knows!

    Your reward is a Cracked Low Quality Lesser Empty Healing Potion. Inscribed by Anya herself.

    Gratz to you! Very cool achievement

    I saw you posted this one too in another forum (shall not be talked about here I guess) and the stupid users over there trashed your topic with stuff like
    "It's ok, it's P1 lol. the mobs does like no dmg and you one shot almost everything",
    "do it on P8 and I will be impressed",
    "Any titan build p8 is harder than this, gg go next.",
    "Meh, it's been done numerous times by Hammerdins (auras help massively), Sorcs and Summoners (all the cookie cutters that can guarantee damage)",
    "If you do it on /p8 hardcore then post it, that would be an achievement and we all would love to see it, otherwise you are just yet another person over the years to mess around with naked characters on /p1",
    "But monsters have no hp on p1=easy as ****."

    DonĀ“t listen to these haters. Bunch of narrow-minded ppl
    I rly start to hate that place..

    Awesome job dude. Simply amazing. Anybody claiming it was "just" P1 is crazy, and I would love to see them try it.

    haha yes, it was very funny to see the difference in comments between the forums :D
    I don't like that place either, posted it because I thought there might be some people interested to see this (which there were), but a lot of people there have no clue :)

    Exactly why I started posting here almost exclusively, it's beyond toxic.
