just an impossible idea

I just had an idea, a quick (really quick) tourny idea.

How about make a naked sorc in HC, using only three skills -> the three cold armor! that's it, nothing else, not even melee attack. see how far you can go.

sort like a sucide tourny -> how far you can go/how many you can "kill" before you die.

This may invovle the act5 option. so rules will be something like this:

HC, no pick up, all stat points spend to eng, no weapon, only cold armor (only shiver and chilling could kill) allowed, no potion, no back to town once out, no any other healing (eg. well), no ring/amulet, the most killing win.

That'd be a VERY quick tourney, lol. Personally i'd be surprised if anyone could get past the Stony Fields with that many restrictions.

Well, you need to at least kill something in the beginning with your fists since you can't use shiver armour until lvl 12 right? How are you going to level up?

No melee attack - not even punching? If so, then you would have to use -act5 just to get skills to make a first kill :)

Also, no vit = no stamina. So it will be a short tourney indeed!

Count me in :teeth:

If -act5 makes yer sorc too "studly" (riiiight) then you could opt for -act2 or -act3. If those are still enabled in 1.10, one of those should get you to a level where you can use the desired armor but without going overboard.

Your call, since I am going to cower in Atma's tavern while you go forth naked against the forces of hell. Luck to you!

That was the core of the idea. No attack = not even punch! if you can punch, someone killed andy with total naked sorc with no points spend what so ever.

So it will look like: using act5 make a naked sorc, then get the skills up (cold armors), walk out of act1 camp, and "dead woman walking" + "take someone else with her". With the rules I posted before, who is interested?

*If I'm not mistaking, the cold armors deal "good" amount of damage in act1 normal, you can certainly kill quit few before get killed.

Don't worry, it is a D2 command. what it does: make a new char start at act5, with no WP or quest complete, and start at lvl33, so you can assign skills points. It is considered a cheat if you use it on normal play, but for this special idea, it is must (plus, your sorc won't live & no pick up, so no worry).

If you are interested, I can make you one, and email to you.

-act5? what does that mean?
Dunno, please explain, as I might be interested... I haven't the time for long turneys, but this sounds short ;)

Ok, I changed the rules a bit (after made the char):
1. everyone interested will have to ask me to send a pre-made char to you, I already assigned the stat points, now you have 152 life, and 36 defence (some went vit, rest Dex).
2. I also assigned 5 skill points, to get all three armors. how to spend the rest is upto you.
3. only use the cold armors, no attack, not even punch. all kill must be made by the cold damage by your armors. No cold mastery.
4. no pick up, no posion, no back to town once you walk out the rouge camp, no any other healing (eg. well). If for any reason you have to save&exit before you got killed, you will need to restart.
5. no talk to NPC.
6. try to kill as many as you can, before you get killed.
7. try to go as far as you can if possible.
8. if you see a shaman, you need to try to kill him before killing the small guys, otherwise you can kill many small guys, just by standing there.
9. there is no prize, apart you can ask perfect gem or full rej posion, I have a lot of them.
10. each "boss" killing score 3, each small guy score 1. each WP score 3. write down your total score. the highest win.
11. you can start anytime you feel like, it won't take long, but it may take a while, so I suggest you do it while you have a lot of free time.
12. if you need to take a phone call, you can push the game, or pick up a TP, back to town, but no healing!!!

I made an -act 2 version last night as a warm up. This will be an interesting contest. :teeth:

I'm glad you added some vit/dex :thumbsup:

I'm a bit confused by the scoring. I understand 1 point for normal monster kill, 3 for waypoints. But what is a "boss"? Is a shaman a boss? What about champions?

I'm still in of course :) Send me a char at [email protected]

yeh, a shaman or a champ would be boss. since I doubt anyone would meet andy:D

to be clear: any one who lead a pack of small guys would be a boss in this contest. so shaman, champ, uniq ...

** I know shaman will be the easiest boss, but give him a chance

Just a small update, if anyone interested, you may also ask AE for the copy of the pre-made sorc. If he thinks it is okay. otherwise, I will email it to you. The problem is my timezone is too much different than most of your US guys and girls.

Ok, I played this whacky char yesterday.

I found (as others will) that if you stay in the Blood Moor, and save/restart repeatedly, that you will probably never die, and pile up kill points. That would become incredibly boring and cheesy to me as well. :teeth:

So I decided to see how far my sorc could travel, while still killing some significant monsters along the way. Here are my final results:

RIP Suicider lvl33 :lol: Black Marsh, desperately searching for the WP
364 normal monsters - this was hard to track, so +/- 30 or so
31 bosses - including Corpsefire, Bishibosh, Rakanishu & Treehead Woodfist :)
3 WPs (Cold Plains, Stony Field, Dark Wood)
1 quest completed - Den of Evil - no points, just interesting
Total score = 466 points

I skipped Blood Raven & Cold Crow - seemed too suicidal for even this contest! The Underground Passage was very, very tough to pass. I lost most of my hitpoints there. I killed the last 20 monsters or so with ONE hitpoint remaining. A Devilkin Shaman made the final kill with a fire bolt.

You all now have a target to beat. Good luck!

that was impressive work, I didn't think someone could complete quest.

Anyway, rule #7 says go as far as you can, and rule #4 says need to restart, so stay in blood moor will
1) break the rule, and
2) every time you restart, all score count would reset, so there is no way to pump up score by doing so.

Myself, haven't done yet, my wife is using the computer, I can email, check SPF, but not play games. Last time I was in underground passage, but had to save&exit because a phone call.
