Lvl 98 to 99, Killing Diablo, Need Advice Ok so for some reason the lvling bug has caught me and I find myself able to do the endless baal runs it takes to reach lvl 98 on the ladder. I'm currently about halfway between lvl 97 and 98 with my fireball/orb sorc and I've been fortunate enough to hook up with a group of people who have been very good about helping me lvl. Essentially we do a normal teleport to baal run and kill the minions which gets me about 70 to 80k. Next I kill baal either alone or with 1 or 2 other people which gets me another 50 to 70k. In total I average about 140k per run. Still means a TON of runs to get from 97 to 98 but its been a very good system for me. Certainly far better than public baal runs where I'd be lucky to get 90k per run if the whole group kills baal and trust me public runs are SLOW compared to the runs im now used to. Now here's the snag. In 2 or 3 weeks I will hopefully be lvl 98. From talking to the other lvl 98's on the ladder heres how experience breaks down. Assuming an 8 Player Game: Baal's Minions: ~12k if shared with 7 other people Baal: ~50k if done solo or with 1 other person Diablo: ~40k if done solo or with 1 other person So ideally I would want to kill both diablo and baal each run. The problem is theres no way my sorceress can clear the 3 seals fast enough in an 8 player run to kill diablo and I don't want to ask my group to sacrifice all their minions experience to help me get to diablo. However I think I have a way to get both diablo and baal. The plan is to have 2 copies of diablo going and clear out the chaos sanc in a 1 player game AHEAD of the current run. So for example if my sorc and the rest of my group were in run1 I would clear the chaos sanc in run2 while they are killing the minions in run1. The advice I would like from you guys is which character can clear the 3 seals the fastest in the chaos sanc in a 1 player game. The best I can come up with is a nicely tricked out hammerdin wearing enigma. The plan would be to clear the balrogs on the right after opening both seals there. Teleport to the Lord de Seis seal at the top and clear that. Then teleport to the left and open one seal. If the minions there pop out I would clear them and leave one seal untouched and send the hammerdin to the next game. If they dont pop out I would still leave the seal untouched since my sorc can kill those minions pretty fast even in an 8 player game. Best I can figure for this to work, a hammerdin would have to be able to clear all that in about 1 minute, MAYBE 1.5 minutes as killing the minions takes my group about 2.5 to 3 minutes and I'd need time to kill both diablo and baal with my sorceress. The next step would be to send the hammerdin on to run3. Go back to sorc and kill baal in run1, then send sorc to run2 to kill diablo. Back to hammerdin to clear sanc in run3. Rinse and repeat over and over. So the questions for you guys are: 1) Is this viable? Can one person do all this assuming 2 copies of diablo? 2) If it is viable is the hammerdin the best character for this. Remember only the bosses need to die to get diablo to come out and this is a 1 player game so hp on monsters isnt too too high. Maybe a whirlwind barb with botd and enigma would work. Any advice here would be very helpful. Anyone done a lot of fast diablo runs and have a char they think is very good at it? 3) Any nice people out there looking for very good baal runs to lvl there characters in feel free to message *Essex99 on USWest and I'll try to fit you in. I can't promise a spot as most times the runs are full but every once in a while it's a struggle to find people.
