    My HC 99 project is complete

    After four months of living in the chaos sanctuary AdmiralAckbar took down the ancients and hit the final level.

    This goal was something that I always thought about pursuing, but never took all that serious until this spring. My first attempt was on a meteorb sorc that ended up wiping to some nasty pack doing baalruns. Immediately following that I made a new sorc that got iced in LK while trying to piece together an infinity. At this point I decided I needed something sturdier than a sorc so AdmiralAckbar was born.

    From that point on pretty much all my video game time went into leveling my pally. I took an occasional break to play some lan starcraft and made two guardians but other than that it was all about getting 99.

    For the near future I will retire the pally but will likely use him for some mfing down the road. For the time being I need to make my character screen a little more balanced.

    And finally, the gear.
    Shako (ptopaz)
    Enigma Mage Plate
    HotO (40%)
    HoZ (Um)
    Upped Magefist
    Fully Upped Hotspur Boots
    Arachnid Mesh
    Mara's (29%)
    SoJ
    BKWB

    In the inventory I had a 37% gheeds, 3 plain pcomb gcs, and a bunch of sc's of vita. What I like about the gear is that most of it was found while leveling in the cs. He found the HoZ, the hotspurs, the arachnid mesh, maras, SoJ and the BKWB. In fact he didn't even piece the enigma together until lvl 96.

    Another Enigmadin (I'm referring to DX-Crawler's lvl 99 Champion) hit the end of the line, so to speak.

    Congratulations. Truly an aweseome feat ! :p I might attempt this myself when I have time. Your gear is similar to my hammerdin. I use Spirit instead of HoZ, though.

    Now, where to find the determination..

    Good job sir! I really admire your determination considering how CS is not that motivating with drops unless you do p8 boss packs as well...

    Ehh maybe I'll go for another 99, but probably not. Definately not at the pace I did this one in if I am to try it.

    For the time being I think I am going to enjoy all of the things I have been holding myself back from. Probably enter some untwinked/single pass tournaments and do some mf competitions.

    Congratulations! All the more impressive since it's not a Sorceress and it's HC.

    Any highlights as far as finds go?

    Great work! Any thoughts on how it compared leveling in the CS as opposed to Baal runs? I got bored CSing my hammerdin and he's only 92 lol

    The finds on this character were really good up until lvl 98 when I stopped killing bosspacks and did seals only. The highlights included a one socket CoA, 2 Windforces, 3 Tal's Plates, Gargoyle Bite Winged Harpoons, and a griffons eye. Finds would've been better had I switched the boots w/ war travs and the sc's of vita with mf, but the main focus was just surviving.

    What I was really impressed with where the rune finds however. I knew that by doing the whole thing in 1.13 runes would be frequent but did not expect it to be to this extent.
    Before level 94:Ohm
    Level 94-95:Ber
    Level 95-96:Lo, Vex
    Level 96-97:Lo, Sur, Vex
    Level 97-98:Ber, Vex, Sur (Forgot to ss)
    Level 98-99:Ber, Ber, Ber

    Now.

    Run naked into a pack of gloams.

    End it before you think of doing something like that again.

    Seriously. What's wrong with you? Didn't DC doing this crap teach anybody anything? :p
