Leveling Wars - Tournament

What’s the lowest level character you think you can get to kill normal Baal? Well, this is your chance to find out. The object of this tourney is to simply be the LOWEST level character to take down Baal. (The extra level doesn’t count if you level up by killing him.)

Basic Rules
1. There will be 4 divisions: HC untwinked, HC twinked, SC untwinked, SC twinked.
2. Version 1.10 or later is permitted. RWM and RRM are allowed as long you don’t use realm-only rune words.
3. Any /players setting may be used.
4. You may not use the escape key to bail out of a tough battle. If you cannot get out of it, accept your death.
5. ATMA is allowed.
6. You may rerun areas as you want.
7. No multiplaying.

Game Play

There are absolutely NO RESTRICTIONS! (other than the basics above) -- However, remember that the object is to be the LOWEST level character to kill normal Baal.

Scoring - So we can keep track of how well everyone is doing, your score will be your current waypoint less your character level. You do NOT have to find all waypoints, just count them up to the highest one you do have, & then subtract your level.

You may enter up to 7 characters in each division (one of each class).
(Who can get the lowest total using all 7 classes?)

Since you can't do the Ancients before level 20, I expect a lot level 21's. :smiley:

Oh yeah that's kinda silly, I was allready looking for lowlvl requirement CB, but the lvl 20 needed to kill the ancients makes this much less interesting. Maybe I'll try untwinked.

Edit: HC twinked is also interesting, who is willing to risk his items? :)

Hmm, doesn't blizzard require lvl 24? I think SC twinked, your lvl while killing normal Baal should be much lower...
You are right. My reaction was rather unweighted. So it will be blizzy without blizzard :wink3:. I want her for next PvP purpose.

This is proving to be quite easy so far. Maggot Lair was a bit annoying though, since I had to kill some monsters there, but I'm pretty sure I can run through the most of Act 3 and 4 and the whole of Act 5. I will probably have to go back to level for The Ancients. Duriel dropped me The Hand of Broc, which was pretty awesome too since it is one more unique to add to my collection. I won't regret the time spent on this.:smiley:

Perhaps the tournament could be extended to Hell? Doing Hell Ancients at level 60 is probably a lot harder than normal Ancients at 20.

I think the best way to run this kind of tourney up to Hell difficulty would be to run it in Classic. There's no level restrictions, so you could (potentially) take on Hell Diablo with a level 25 character. Dunno how much chance you'd stand. :tongue:

I'm debating whether to enter this. See how much time I get.

If you kill Baal at lvl 21 just try a different category :D

Got to Cats 2 waypoint at lvl 6. But had no idea how to have a level 6 untwinked char kill Andariel (oh wait... if I'd been a sorc... D'oh!) so I've gone and levelled up a bit for the Act 1 showdown.

For the twinked categories, could people record what level they need to take down Diablo as well? That would be interesting and not suffer from the problem of the level restriction from the Ancients.

Found some more time for this.

I didn't advance a level since the Maggot Lair. Killed Diablo at lvl 14 (you hardly get any expereince there anyway due to clvl penalties) and then ran straight to the Arreat Summit. I killed the Ancients at lvl14 as well, but obviously I had to go back to act 2 and get to level to 20 and then kill them again. I'll finish Baal this evening.

I have a quick question, in the SC divisions, are there any penalties for dying? Can you just keep going? Do you have to retrieve you corpse?

I'm a little late with this, but welcome everyone!

I have a quick question, in the SC divisions, are there any penalties for dying? Can you just keep going? Do you have to retrieve you corpse?
I included the SC divisions kind of as an afterthought just to have a comparison to how much more careful we are with HC characters. So, in answer to your questions: no death penalties, keep playing, & you can do what you want with your corpse.

Stephen: Congrats on being the first to kill Baal!

As Scatha mentioned, I think that for the twinked divisions we should also note the level for Diablo. It may also be interesting to see the levels for killing NM Ancients except the experience penalty for dying would actually help (in SC), so maybe not.

just to be evil you could ban static and CB...
I thought about that, but liked the "no restrictions rule". Sorcs will have an advantage (at least in untwinked divisions), but it will still be interesting to see how much of an advantage.

I also modified the table to include the level at which you kill Diablo (DLvl).
