I'm getting naked

*giggles* not that way. Behave yourselves. This way:

As some know I've had a few attempts at trying to get a HC character through the game naked.
Naked means, no armor, charms etc.
I did have a Skellimancer but had to delete him because he picked up a piece of armor on the way (Act 3 NM) that I didn't notice.
So this time I'm trying a Sorceress ... and here she is

Character name : storm
Character type : Hardcore Sorceress
Character level : 10
Character exp : 69910

Strength : 10
Energy : 71
Dexterity : 25
Vitality : 19
Stat Points Rem : 0
Skill Points Rem: 1

Life : 67 / 67
Mana : 125 / 125

I'll posts rules etc later, I wanted to get this up now.

Storm is moving along slowly in Act 1. Its hard as all she can do atm is punch and ice blast her way through. With the help of her rogue she is doing well, slowly but well.

Storm is also the first character of a thought that I've had for awhile now.
I've decided to start up a Nekkid Septavirate :)

I know, its crazy but its something that I want to try.

Other characters that I've thought of so far for my Sept are

Skellimancer or a Venomancer (undecided)
Lightning Amazon
Wind Druid
Possibly a Singer Barb but I have to look at that
Hammerdin
and I have no idea at all with an Assassin.

Any suggestions that you may have for them or an idea of a different character, please tell :)

As soon as I can get Storm up and running I'll get an update and picks going for you to see.

Now how in craps name do you plan to make a naked lightning amazon? Lightning skills require a javelin.

Use nothing but Valk and punching n00b. :teeth:

Mmm... nekkid...

It's gonna be difficult taking an Amazon through Hell naked. All the Hell monsters will be hitting on her....and she doesn't really have any damage dealing skills that doesn't require bow/javelin to work:(

For your assasin you should definitely try a lightning traps assasin, that could work quite well. A hammerdin is going to be very difficult without any gear...no FCR and no mana=:(. Maybe Fist Of The Heavens??? I have no idea how much damage it does, but it could perhaps work.

Anyways good luck and watch out for Black Hack or whatever his name is.

Wow Seige!! A Nekkid Septivarite...

Good luck with all the punching! :)

yeah jas, let them come. - a naked sorc is SEXY! ;)

Why did you delete that necro, only because he picked up an armor by accident? in my eyes it would have been enough punishment to do all the way on which he used the sarmor again naked. But that's just me...

All the best for Storm! What build are you planning? Don't forget that Warmth and Static field will need more than 1 point.
I am eager to read the adventures of Storm.

Apart from my sorc which by the way Isi is a meteorb and either a venomancer or a skelli I haven't really looked at the others yet. Just off the top of my head were the ones that I thought could keep away from monsters.
Warmth is a good idea, I plan to get mana to 100 and see how that goes. SF I'm not sure about. I don't know if I want to be too close with minus res.
Thanks Chimaira, I'll have a look at that.

Ok I am just curious on the naked barb, I know you'll be thrilled big muscles all naked like :uhhuh: but most of their skills are melee based and those that are spell based warcry requires lots of mana to use, no charms/no equipment = little mana. Barbs are hard when making such challenging builds, believe me I know :)

I wish your sorcy luck she will be fine though just need to take your time.

Seige: good luck on your travels. That's a crazy idea indeedy!

jas: concerning druid builds that can stay away from monsters: AE put a guide about a summoner/fire druid in the guide section. I can recommend this one, as I play him in AQT III. He is in Act3 NM so far and has not yet had a single NDE. It really looks and feels like a very safe build.

a paladin could use Conversion in combination with fist of the heavens, although what I have read so far has not convinced me about that skill.

for a barb I'd try howl/grim ward in combination with battlecry/warcry but I believe the barb and the ama will be the hardest two classes to play naked.

I have no idea what you could build an ama around except if you let the valk and the merc do all the killing and become an acrobat yourself (passive skills maxed)

I would think a hammerdin would work out well naked. Mana would be a huge problem early on, until the paladin hits level 30 and gets a point into redemption. From then on it shouldn't be much of a problem since the build is gear less, and all the points usually spent on str and dex could go into energy (and more vit too) instead. Even with the crappy 1.5 mana ratio they have, it'd still give enough for the 10ish mana needed for slvl 20 hammers.

The Maggot lair could be a huge pain though. It would probably require using a secondary skill and/or a decent mercenary. Or are they kept naked as well?

I think just about every class could, at least theoretically, pull off a gear less career. Although Barbarians would seem extremely difficult, unless the character focused heavily on war cries to buff and aid the well-geared mercenary.

Naked Paladin:
- Zeal/Holy Aura - If zeal woks with fists that is. Else your AR will be pittyfull.
- Hammer/Concentration - Might work.
- FoH/Conviction - Switch to Hammer for Lightning Immunes?.
- Convert/something - Convert can miss and still work, so might be doable.

Naked Barb:
- Singer - Berserk for PI? LOL!

Naked Assassin:
- Tiger, Cobra and Phoenix work with fists, don't they? No idea what the kick damage might be without boots though.
A Phoenix/Trapper might work.

Naked Amazon:
- Some AR and safety from the Passive/Magic skills, but what about damage? Let your Valk do all the work?

Naked Sorc:
Make sure you are fast with Teleport.
You will need max Telekinesis (for manashield) and lots of Warmth.

Naked Necro:
- Summoner
- Poison/Bone with lots of points in Boneprison/Armour. You are slow without faster run/walk, you know.

Naked Druid
-Flamebear - Handsome firedamge with synergies I guess.
-Summoner/Caster
 
Well for a zon you can only really do a tankazon, since you cant have bows or javs, so thats 2 of the 3 trees out already.
I would have thought you could have gotten a better name than storm for your sorc, its too normal for such a character.

Jas - do you use the /nopickup command? That might help prevent your characters from accidentally equiping stuff while running around.

I would have agreed with isengart: the skellimancer should have had a second chance. But it's your build, your rules. Good luck on the naked Septavirate

Can you blame them?

interesting idea

I'll have to try a nekkid hc character. You can have potions in your inventory, right? just no charms?

Go with a nekid missionary :) Maxed thorns, some conversion, might merc (helps the monsters you boost) and FoH/HS(thats your boss killer)

Nekid amazon: I guess its the super valk then. Run past every PI you find.

It Begins...

Decided to try a summoner/ice druid naked. Currently level 8. ;)

Natureboy: (Kinda like the double meaning!)
1 Point Raven
3 Points Spirit Wolves
2 Points Oak Sage
2 Points Arctic Blast

The hard part was not getting my butt kicked while running around with just the raven till I got to level 6. Hit an archer bosspack in the cold planes and nearly ate it! I'll give updates. ;) BTW, recovered an arctic furs for my merc. ;)

@Seige:

A little trick to prevent you from picking up stuff, try "\nopickup"

You can now only see and pickup objects when you hold the "Alt" button.
