    Its that time again

    for another attempt at taking a Necro through the game without wearing any items or carrying any charms .... in other words completely Nekkid.
    I've attempted this a few times. The furthest we could get was into Act 2 Hell before we were given our "deeds". :( Hopefully this time we can go 3 acts better.

    I originally started another Nekkid Barry for the Rev. FB's mini tourney but deleted him because that wasn't the way that I prefer to play. That character went through at players/1 and missed quite a few wp's. I prefer the opposite, players/8 and all quests and wp's in each Act completed.

    The rules that I have set myself:

    Must be HC.
    Stat points can only be placed in Vitality and Energy.
    Can mule off but not on.
    All Quests and Wp's completed in each Act.
    No Save and Exit to avoid "deeds".
    No TP in belt or hotkeyed.

    Barry must play at players/8 through Normal and Nightmare ... with the exception of Act Bosses, which can be played at players/1.
    Hell will be played at players/1.

    Skill points will remain the same as my other character attempts.

    20 SM
    20 RS
    1 Clay Golem
    1 Golem Mastery
    5 SR
    1 Raise SM
    10 Revive
    1 Teeth
    1 BA
    10 CE
    1 Amp
    1 DV
    1 Weaken
    1 Terror
    1 Decrep

    IIRC skill points finish at lvl 75. The remaining skill points will more than likely go into BA, BW and probably DV as well.

    "WHY AM I DOING THIS"

    Reading a post in the SPF one day I saw someone say that a Fishy could just about do the game naked and I thought why not give that a try.

    I'll do a story and pikkies updates again so all can follow Barry's progress.

    Just the other day I was wondering what had happened to Seige's attemps at a naked Fishy Guardian, too.

    Anyways, good luck with him.

    Any ideas of what his name'll be?

    Did I mention before that you have deep rooted psychological problems? I did? Then allow me to sum up. You're crazy, lady. That said, I wish you the best of luck with your latest foray into nekkidness. You have certainly figured out another way to keep this game from gettin dull.

    Ummm, thanks, I think :)
    So if I said that I'm about to fire up a nekkid sorc as well ... would that make me double crazy ;)

    *goes away to ponder on that one*

    What do you get when you double crazy? There's a question for the ages, eh? But to answer you, yes, that would make you at least double crazy...but also double entertaining, which is lots of fun for the rest of us.

    Good luck!! ...again ;)

    How many attempts did you do now? Including this one?

    Gogo on the nekkid sorceress!! :D
    (mine has been parked for a loooong time, still in Act I, due to lack of concentration on my part...)

    I guess I'd have to say this will be the 4th now Sidhe. My last one was going really well but with my computer stolen and my backup disc destroyed that put paid to that:
    Nudist Ned: Act 1 Hell ... Naked Neville: Act 2 Hell ... Buck Naked: Unfinished (reason above) but was farming Meph in NM, IIRC he was lvl 67 and now we have Barry Barebutt.
    I'm very interested in playing a sorc. I just have to work out how much mana I think she will need and then a name ... any suggestions everyone. With a nekkid sorc running about Sidhe, I think the guys will be very happy :D

    Best of luck Seige. I'd love to try this one day but too busy for now. I have enjoyed your efforts though and wifey and I are cheering you on! Just as a side note how much energy do you usually put in and would it be possible to do it as straight vit?

    MAAM

    Hi maam :)
    Energy goes to 100 and the rest in vitality. 100 is probably too much but I feel comfy with that. Otherwise reviving minions and drinking mana pots is hard as I don't have a belt either. 100 is also good for CE in hell.
    Yes I guess it would be possible with straight vit. It would be tedious drinking mana pots all the time but is something to think on.
    Big hi's to wifey too :)

    Well Fishy would at least wear a loincloth or something, for the sake of modesty if nothing else. Also, Act V is so damn *cold*... :lol:

    As for them skill points: I think you should modify them a little if you use no items at all. Unless I missed something, you don't get attract. You definetly want that skill. Maybe you'll want a couple more in amp damage, too. Like 4 or so. I don't think you need bone armour, though. A couple extra points in dim vision would probably be helpful, too. (unless you have a differnent way of dealing with gloams)

    You could probably shave a few points off revives but I'd definetly get at least 5 or so so you can bring some guys with crushing blow to help out at the act bosses / ancients.

    Good Luck Seige! I like a challenge so I thought making an Archmage was a good one. A nekkid Necromancer? I'll be cheering you on! :thumbsup:

    Don't test my boredom, I've brought them to the entrace of the Underground Passage :p

    Anyway, I hope this Necro goes better than your last one, may it just make it to Act 3.

    Oh you guys and your image :D

    Ooppss. Your post confused me somewhat because I'm following your guide but I have just realised that Attract has been left out of my skills and Amp, yes it should be 4. Sorry :) I was pretty tired when I did a copy and paste.
