KTA - (K)Classic Them All


Diabloii.Net Site Pal
We decided to do things a little differently this time around and bring a theme back to the KTA runs, which is a welcome change as it has been a while! Talman suggested we give Classic a try and we all jumped on the idea!
We had a little discussion about a well-rounded party and picked some builds, which are as follows:-

me: Static/Nova Sorc
Krupa: Poison Necro
Adam: Zerker Barb
Talman: Avenger Paladin
and to welcome in our new runner, Spiritspawn, with a Bonemancer!

We stomped all over Act 1 in a short space of time, hitting the Inner Cloister waypoint at the end of the session ready to take Andy down next week

I for one am really looking forward to seeing how we get on without Insight and runewords and suchlike, should be fun!

It was a good start to the run. :) Great to be a part of it!

Level 17 and looking strong with some nice drops early on as well, a couple of pieces of the Arctic set, and some fairly tasty rares.
Andy should go down pretty easy, although the dreaded Act 2 Normal Durial is looming in my mind. :eek:

Talman... I'm rather suspicious of this so called Rune man... He just lurked around the RE for the whole game. o_O:p

Loving that Screenshot BTW. :)

I'm thinking Iron Maiden + Thorns and a bit of Battle Orders should take care of him!
Because my god, I just realized how high level we are lol :D

I don't have IM, not sure about Krupa. I should have Decrep by then which combined with Krupa's Clay Golem should drop him to a snails pace.
Thorns, BO and hefty beat sticks will probably take care of the rest.

But if we really feel we need it then I'm happy to drop a point in IM.

Thought I might do the write up this time.
We had a full house.... That weird Rune Guy was lurking around the RE again. ;)

Anyway, the game started and we rushed off to the Inner Cloister and into the Cathedral before flying through the Catacombs and on to Andariel who fell pretty quickly
to our combined might. No real notable drops although I beleive a nice pair of rare gloves was obtained.

On to Act 2 and we were flying through the sewers and then out into the Rocky Waste as headed for the Cube and other artifacts.

We made it through with no real dramas and were granted access to the Arcane Santuary (Although I had a fairly hairy moment in the Palace Cellar...). :eek:
We thought we might have time to blitz through and get to the Canyon of the Magi but after two false ends it reached 21:00 and time to call it a night.

Because of the Christmas and New Year break the run will resume on Monday 7th January where I expect Duriel to fall quickly and we'll move on to Act 3.

Everyone is currently Level 22.

Hope you all have a good holiday break and I'll see you in Lut Gholein.:)

How are we looking for tomorrow? I'm not sure if I should join, depends how confident I feel about my exam. If not I can still come in and leech quests.

Hi Guys,

Hope your all hada good Christmas and New Year.
Talman, I was just logging in to ask this question! :D
I'll definitely be there so will log in at the usual time until we're ready to go.

Morning Chaps,

Just wanted to check in to see if we are resuming the run tonight at the usual time of 7 p.m. in the KTA channel?

My Boner is getting impatient.... :confused::p

Well..... we had a full house again last night. :)

We hit the Arcane Sanctuary and ran through 3 of the routes before destroying the summoner with no issues. We then went on to the Canyon of the Magi and cleared all Seven Tombs before heading in to whack Duriel who proved no problem at all.

We stopped at the beginning of Act 3 and will head out to start that on Monday.

No notable drops last night.

Everyone is currently Level 25-26.
