    How long have YOU played without place any skills?

    Think the topic says it all. My-self managed to play my Amazon to lvl 44 without place any points but now I started to place since she started to miss -.-''.

    How high level have you played without any skillplacement?

    (see poll)

    without a single skill point to 44 on an amazon, wowzer.

    You might wanna look up the skill-less tournement :wink3:

    Personally I think somewhere around level 6, I always click prereq's as I go.

    Same here. I've gone without using skills until the lower 30's, but I always place first points in skills as soon as they become available.

    A while ago I couldn't decide what build I wanted but I knew that I wanted something new, so I rushed myself a barb up to level 76 before putting any skill points in.

    Re: How long have YOU played without place any skills?

    I have taken an amazon to 73 without skill placement. Standard envy twinking gear to start. Then Kuko for the Immo Arrow and Endless Hail for strafe (also some poison charms). Ran normal Baal with those two bows until 47. Then T-Gods for the free lightning fury and a pile of Jav skillers got me through nm and did Baal runs to 73. It would pretty easy to Mat this one without ever spending a skill point.

    I also did the same sort of thing with a sorc. Envy gear until 30. Then I had an orb with +3 Orb and 1 cold mastery. Pwned normal Baal with those. At 42 equipped cold skillers and nm Baal runs all the way to 75. (Edit2:) Switch orb had teleport.

    Also, I don't mp, so this was all by myself.

    You could also take a twinked barb pretty far by equipping Bloodletter for the free ww.

    Edit: @Helvete: Yep, it can be annoying. I usually stop and use normal attack on the monster I think will level me. Can be annoying if I have to kill 3 or 4 monsters that way.

    Free ww will freeze you in infinite ww animation if you level up while wwing.

    Did that when I was leveling a wolfbarb, I forgot about it and froze when I levelledfor maybe ~7 levels, then I got fed up and rushed myself :grin:

    Next time I'll just use the +ww/conc barb helm I found in 1.07 :grin:

    No, s&e fixes it, but you have to rerun, and if you are fairly low level in act 5 normal, you will get about as long before you freeze yourself again :rolleyes:

    With a .09 ravenclaw I've played to 30+ a few times, up until the point where the claw would kill slower than whatever build I was playing. Besides that I never saw a point in doing it.

    Re: How long have YOU played without place any skills?

    When I start a new character, I always know what kind of a build I'm making. I spend my skillpoints in the skills I will use, their synergies and pre-reqs as soon as I can. Doing otherwise would only slow me down. I don't remember the last time I made a character who didn't use his/her skillpoints all the way from the very beginning :tongue:

    Re: How long have YOU played without place any skills?

    For my first paladin build I didn't use any skill point till normal Duriel..and I was totally destroyed by that demon.
    I cannot remeber exactly the level though, I think I was 22. After that I trained a lot in the tombs and invested all points to power up the skills :rolleyes:

    At level 84, Selena the 'Skill-less tournament' assassin was mugged by a double boss pack in a Kurast temple. I saved and exited, thereby disqualifying her from further progress.

    With a little better luck with the starting area in that temple, I truly believe she would´ve had a good shot at becoming a single-pass full clear Guardian.

    Re: How long have YOU played without place any skills?

    IIRC, I once made a Druid that reached clvl 53 without spending a skill point, and completed Normal with it.

    Another was a Barb, around clvl 52 (all I remember is that it's clvl is 1 down the Druid), completed Normal too, spending just 4 points in Increased Stamina, Increased Speed, Iron Skin, and Natural Resistance.

    And a Pally that was able to complete Normal at clvl 45 without spending skill points.


    All made possible with a v1.09 Ravenclaw. :grin:

    Re: How long have YOU played without place any skills?

    I spend pretty much every point I get as soon as I get it, mostly in synergies for later skills. Exceptions would be builds without useful synergies, like an Orb Sorc or LF Zon.

    Re: How long have YOU played without place any skills?

    Never tried myself but I could probably get a sorc into the upper 80's without placing skill points, the toughest part is getting above level 19 so I could get a leaf runeword onto her for a 1000+ damage firewall.

    Then again I had a barb that was in the mid 70's while using firewall and poison he didn't use his skills other than iron skin and resistance.

    Also from the Skill-less Tournament, my necromancer Gere made it to level 54 before being hunted down by a boss pack of extra fast, cold enchanted infidels in Act V NM. He relied on an Act V mercenary and equipment with +skills for all his kills & spells.

    And that part is not particularly tough.
