    Players X!! Give you Opinion!!!

    Hi all,

    I dont know if this was ever asked but here it goes:
    What is you average use of the /playersx command?
    Do you go from Normal to Hell allways at 8?
    You choose an average of 4?
    U dont use it? :lol:

    I personally go with it at 8 till NM and the switch to 3,4!

    What u Think?

    I try to balance between speed and exp. That means p8 for strong CC chars, but less for more experimental chars.

    My Fishy did it all in p8.

    I usually MF in Pits on p3 since i also try too balance time and items too :)

    Normal Players 8 was fine,
    NM players 4 is fine (so far)
    Hell ???

    I think igt all depends on whether your characters is well equipped or not, for instance somone who has lots of muled items over could probably easily go through the game on players 8, except maybe hell, for somone who has just started again like me, i doubt im gonna be able to finish NM on players 4 unless i pick p a good sword somwhere :rant: im currently using a crystal sword of (+ max damage suffix) with 5-61 damage, and i can just about handle acts 1 and 2 nm at lvl 52.

    I hate my sword.

    Normally i would do both normal and nm at players 8 unless it was painfully slow. Then i will slowly adjust the players command in hell. Until a point where it will be 1 which is normally in act 4

    usualy players 8 normal and nightmare then in hell its players 1 for most chars

    but for example my hammerdin and sniperzon can thanks to their gear and skills solo hell at players 8 without to much slow down.

    i expect my new(just started) summoner/poison hybrid to be able to solo hell at players 8 without to much slowdown once i get all gear i have planned for him.

    mostly charms i need got the res of the gear.

    so who has +summon charmsfor a necro:innocent:

    Players 8 until my kill speed to experience ratio drop significately about Act 3-4 of nm then I drop into players 1 until I get to where I want to be.

    Players 8 takes to long in Hell.

    I do P8's on ANY char in Normal and NM...the exp just attracts me too much. P1 is my choice in Hell tho...gets kinda boring P8 things die toooooooooo slow

    I always play untwinked with no repetition of areas, and lately almost exclusively hardcore.

    Either I use:

    * Players 8 in Normal and Nightmare, players 1 in Hell. For underpowered builds, I may lower the setting on normal and nightmare as well.

    * Players 1 all the way. This appeals to me in that Normal gets more interesting, since you don´t get the level 30 skills until Frigid Highlands or so. And I don´t need to return to town to sell stuff after killing only a handful of monsters (no repetition of areas means that I HATE wasting anything).

    Since 1.09 I've been in the habit of using Players 5 in Normal and Nightmare, then dropping back to Players 1 for Hell. I think that's because the Players 5 setting gave the best compromise between additional monster hit points and XP earned in 1.09, and while I think this has changed in 1.10, old habits die hard...

    * raises hand* Me too :teeth: HC untwinked all the way!

    I try to stay relatively even with monster levels so my merc has an easier time surviving. Players8 in norm, players5 in NM (except Ancients), and Players3 in Hell as long as I can, untli about act 3 or 4, then down to players1. In Hell I go players1 against act bosses too.

    Normal and NM: 8
    Hell: ...haven't tried it on anything other than 1 yet, we'll see :)

    Ancients in NM/Hell: 1. If the experience reward doesn't scale I don't see any reason to spend that much time on them. Especially in HC...

    I'm not a D2 veteran like everyone else here. I've never actually gotten into Hell difficulty before :) However, it looks like I'll finally be doing that with my Meteorb sorc. She's 71 and in Act 5 nightmare right now. It's been on P8 the entire time (except Duriel on Nightmare, but he was a piece of cake so I could have easily have left it on p8). I'm not sure how it'll be in Hell, so.. I'll find out :)
