    KTA - What's next?

    Howdy y'all,

    after a short but brutal session yesterday evening in which our insight charger and conviction FoH-er got murdered in Tower Cellar lvl 1 by a combination of an archer boss pack and a Misshapen boss pack we find ourselves in need of figuring out a new theme for the next run.

    The run will start next Monday at 19 UK time.

    I don't feel like reposting the rules, etc. I'm sure MrKaxe will do so if the need arises. Suffice it to say that we are an all waypoints and quests untwinked run playing weekly on Monday nights on Hardcore Europe.
    People interested to participate (and i DO mean participate, it's no problem if for some reason you have to miss a session, but if in gerneral if you can't commit, don't sign up) can apply in this thread, we do however reserve the right to give returning KTA members preference over new members.

    On to the interesting stuff, what the hell will we do next?

    What got mentioned yesterday evening:
    - Ironman theme: ie no town trips.

    Returning idea:
    - Classic run

    Off the top of my head:
    - All (pick class) theme. After the all pallies we could try another class for this.
    Just the thought of 8 ama's, 8 valks and 8 rogue mercs running around on one screen makes me jump for joy :)
    - Free pick, do whatever the heck you want.
    - The fellowship of the ring, 1 player gets nothing but rings, a piece of armor ("light as a feather and as hard as dragons' scales") and a sword and has to be escorted by the rest of the team to cast something into the Worldstone ^__^

    Feel free to bring forth any ideas of your own.

    Cheerio!

    There was a nasty Goatman pack that I killed the boss of by charging him away down the corridor but his minions surrounded and took swift care of me while I was cursed from the other pack!

    If we did 8 zons we could have all the elements covered as well as a few physical damage attacks as well...i'd be totally in for that with an Exploding Arrow/Immozon!

    EDIT: I have msged Ivan as he is quite hard to get hold of but i'm sure the others will see this thread and post their wishes :)
    Hell, even if drinkturps, zrk, peddy etc don't see the thread immediately then we can Ironman/Hide n Seek etc 'til we have a full group ready to rock...in other words, let's not be soooo hasty this time!

    don´t even know what exactly killed me, kept using rejuvs (i almost never do) but it just wasn´t enough...

    i really like this zon idea :D but if its for the valks, we could also make assassin & amazon theme, as this would leave some more freedom for builds (when we were 8 paladins,it was kinda everything taken)
    possibly 24 things runnning around with 7 or more auras active at the same time will look awesome and we should take screenshots :D
    as i´ve been a caster for the last two runs, i´d like to go melee this time

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    I'm still working on getting Pat's avast! sorted so she can log onto here and post how she feels and if we don't get any movement on this thread from returnees i'll send out a few PM's
    Fendazon or Jabber btw Joe? :tongue:
    Pat did the screenies but I don't mind handling them again if she doesn't want to, or if you want to, even better!
    Loving the zon idea, check this:-

    FA zon with Prayer Merc (Insight)
    Poison zon with Holy Freeze Merc
    Lightning zon with BA merc
    Immozon with Defiance merc
    Strafer with Might Merc
    Multishot with Barb or Rogue
    Jabber with Barb or Rogue merc
    Fend/Impale zon for the hell of it?! Thorns Merc?!

    Sounds badass no? (not the combo of mercs to chars, just the sheer coverage of skills/damage types and adds to them!)

    Sounds great to me. Since I'm already building my second fendazon outside kta this season I'd like to try one of the javvie zons or the multi.

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    Hey ho gang - starting again are we?

    I like the zon idea - I would do a totally passive zon pretty much like superdave but with no restrictions on armor and gear!

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    I find this concept really cool and intriguing but there's no way I'd be able to play at that time. Is there anyone interested in putting together a similar deal for USEast that runs in the evening EDT?

    Iirc there was an untwinked group playing on East last ladder, think they were called ESU.

    Maybe they are still active, although I haven't ready any updates from them for quite some time. But it has been done before, so it can be done again I'd say :)

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    Oh good, you are alive then :p

    Glad to have you back dude, it's been too long...

    Passive build sounds cool, you could have a Passion weapon to Zeal/'zerk or a Crescent Moon to Static which would be cool... :scratchchin:

    We will just do s'more Ironman/Hide n Seek and discussion of builds and mercs and stuff on Monday until we fill up the run, if the boyz haven't seen the thread by sometime next week i'll send out PM's to the likely suspects and as the lag is supposedly gone i'll be in gauss tonight and will shout Adam and maybe Snop if he's about...

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    zrk sent me a PM, unfortunately he is out this time, Adam might well be around to ask tonight, other than that, we are at a stunning total of 6 at the mo, maybe 7 if we can muster Adam!
    Let's see who turns up where and when and go from there, check you later peeps!

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    i won´t be able to make it tonight, gonna catch up if u guys start tho.

    my char of choice would be an impale zon without D/A/E and therefor no valk
    but if somebody else wants to play one who´s in tonight, i´ll take some other build

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    Impale is yours then man, no worries and we won't start without you, we can just have some fun today with Ironman n Running Man n Hide n Seek n stuff I think, we are in no hurry and as the last run was rushed it was bad karma from the start with a % of peeps dropping out then multiple deaths...no jinxing this time! :D

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    I wonder if one can still join your group. I'd love to make a D2 KTA/Ironman run. I'm currently online in Skype.

    Cheers!

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    Good day Helpoing, sorry I missed this last night, I don't have Skype but I would have been able to get you into a channel to chat but a friend came over so I had to leave all things Diablo-related :)
    It's nice to see you're interested in the fun that is KTA, here are the rules for our merry band, please take the time to read them and understand the requirements and if you are still interested in a KTA run please post back :)

    At this stage, as we are in between runs and gathering people for the new one, we like to pass the time with Ironman, Running Man, Hide n Seek and stuff but we are hoping to start the new KTA run described in this thread next week, people pending

    So far peeps we have:-

    Myself
    oOmpie
    Fred
    Pat
    Joe
    Ivan (mebbe, he said he would so a strong mebbe!)
    Adam (msg sent)
    Snop (msg sent)

    So a potential full run again but well, potential is potential! Any thoughts over the coming week post here please peeps!

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    No problem, I played a few hours in public games. Haven't played 1.13 before, so it was very unusual (in a good way) that one doesn't have to worry about TPPK anymore.

    I'm basically into Ironman (in D1 as well), so I'd love to participate in a IM-esque run: without TPs, without shopping, maybe with repairs (if I make the team in the first place :whistling:).

    And on your set playtime: Mondays from 19 till 21 BST (and GMT later on) suits me fine.

    EDIT: Oh, and I'm *VDJ in-game.

    Re: KTA - What's next?

    If you like that sort of thing I can point you in the right direction for it, post an application in the forums here as there is probably soon to be another Ironman run and the gauss community in general roxx! :)

    In regards to KTA Ironman runs these will most likely stop as of next week in favour of the acual run so if you want to get in on the action you are welcome but I will (as I have to, sorry!) have to make it clear that commitment to the run is vital as areas of damage/skills etc your character brings to the team will be lost if you quit although as the rules (should!) state, RL pw0ns Diablo so if imprtant stuff has to be done, no worries, as long as you post ahead of time :)

    Hoping to see you Monday in channel...if I haven't scared you off!

    Hopefully I'll be there with the quest to build the worlds strongest Valk!

    I'll passively be aggressive :D
