No, I'm a mere toddler at 39. I get rushed so I can get some decent skills (sorcs are just pathetic till at least level 24 or 30.) I have solo'ed the whole game, and even after I've matriarched a sorc I'll take her back to do all quests. But - honestly what's new in Sanctuary anymore? The novelty is finding good drops, not killing duriel for the 300th time. (I think my merc could solo now, while I sit around and watch...)druliusCleaver said:I've almost never rushed. When I first started battle-netting I accidentally got rushed by chasing the rushing parties through the acts, and once I rushed through Hell up to ancients just because I was having fun playing with the players in the game. But normally, I play the whole game through with every character (I've only built 4 chars past lvl 50 since 1.10) because I don't see the point in only running certain high exp areas, I like the diversity they built into the story and locales. Besides, SOJs and killer gear can drop anywhere beyond their first drop area, there's not much difference between highly unlikely and very higher unlikely in my book. They both take tremendous luck to drop your way.
But then, at 43, I'm probably just old and old fashioned. I'm old enough to actually remember playing my family's Sears brand Pong game for about 6 months after the xmas it arrived under the tree. ...Then the atari 2600 came out.
Can anyone else top my age, or do I get to claim the age crown on this forum?
all it is level first then quest. level to 18 first with a sorc, tp through. i was messing around last night, did nm a1 in 5 minutes with a lvl 30 sorc. the time i did it in 15, i happened to have the horadric staff and an extra khalim's flail. that guy who did it in 2 hours scouted all the areas first. if i level, twink and scout beforehand...meh.Arbedark said:I call BS.
Simply no way to do act 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in normal in 30 mins, even with a tweaked character, unless you got rushed, which your earlier comments state that you didnt.
Edit: Proof in the form of footage of the fastest recorded time for someone to complete normal difficulty, just under 2 hours...
Yeah, sorc at level 18 + tons of mana potions = practically self-rush (except for killing a few bosses here and there). And just playing through Act 1 will get you close to level 18 pretty fast, although Trist runs can help a lot, too. Especially if you tweak.Superhal said:level to 18 first with a sorc, tp through
