    I want to try a new rush strategy - Thoughts?

    Basically, I plan on just rushing people all the way to Hell in their single digits to the point where their XP handicap doesn't even matter anymore and they start levelling like mad. What I'm trying to figure out is good places in Act V where they have walls to hide behind and as they level what gear to give them to make them more survivable. I got the idea from doing Hell Forge rushes with 2 computers and noticing that my rushees started getting whopper loads of XP around Act III Hell for just being near any fight.

    I'm wondering though, will the rate of level increase seriously slow down as they get higher up and need more XP or will it only increase since the handicap ease up?

    i have been lvling my charas for a while like this now and this is how i do it.
    get rushed up to hell act 5 (You can also stop at act 4) then u need some 1 to do some hell dia games for you. The way you lvl goes like this.
    1-15 is fast
    15-25 is a bit slower but not that slow(also good at lvl 24 to do ancients on norm)
    25-39 really fast
    39-68 fast
    from here you still get good xp from diablo runs but can do ancients then move on to baal runs
    im not 100% sure if this is the fastest way but from doing this i can get from 1-70 quite easy in a night

    Hope this helps

    if a character thats in your party and needs the baal quest(has to be active), kills him you get the quest no matter level and even if you are in town

    Uhhh... do the same thing. Be partied with someone getting the Duriel quest, and you'll get it too. Then talk to Jerhyn and Meshif as usual, and you're set.

    but you can't always get the quest. an audience with Jehyrn(sp?) is sometimes difficult to get

    If he's cowering in his palace or completely vanishes (has happened to me several times), you can always make/join a different game to talk to him.

    I think you can go to the WP that takes you under the Palace, then you can walk into his area so he can't hide.
