    Pointless wonder...for now at least!

    I decided to create a new character for the PvP tourney coming up (I hope I'll be ready!). So far, I have not allocated any of my skill or stat points.

    Here is a quick screenie of me! I think I'll be able to complete at least Act 1 this way, then I'll start using those points.

    My character is untwinked so far, using only items found. Eventually for the tourney, he will be twinked though.

    Why not allocate some points now...that will make your life so much easier...and you don't even have to "waste" points because you're going to need at least lvl 1 mastery and also the prerequisites...Good luck with your PvP character, although if it's your first time around you're probably going to get mauled:) Be sure to check out the barbarian forum for good guides...just ignore the Breath Of The Dying + Beast parts and you'll be fine.

    Given that Sint finished act I a while back with a level 1 character, I'm pretty sure that, given patience, you can finish act I without assigning any points. Not assigning any of your skill points is an interesting diversion, but is really un-needed (is that a word?)

    Back in the old days... way before the expansion came out, my friend and I tried to get as far as we could stomach without assigning any skill points at all to each class. Then, we would "cheat" by using that character as a starting point for new characters to try. We got quite a few to level 30. It's an interesting challenge anyway.

    One thing though... if you are planning on using this character in an upcoming tourney, make sure you aren't breaking rules by doing this.

    Unfortunately, the only rune normal Countess dropped for me was an El. The first rune I find, and it has to be an El. Oh well.

    I'm not going slow yet, and as a personal mini-challenge, I think I'll hold out, and see if I can finish Act 1 before assigning points.

    I'm not sure what you mean here. I don't think I'm breaking any rules by creating a new character just for this tourney.

    He didn't mean this tourney...he meant other tourneys, or even future tourneys. At least I think he did. I don't think there are any rules concerning character creation in the PvP tourney.

    Act 1 can be done on lvl 1, but hat involves not killing stuff, and since you are killing stuff, its probably harder, even with the +life you get per lvl anyway.
    Try get to duriel without assigning any points, then i'll respect you. :p

    I remember a story write up once about a paladin who completed normal without allocating any points to skills (and I think stats - not sure) using their orignal non-magical short sword. I think it was on Sirians old site but wasn't one of his characters.

    I've beaten act 1 before without allocating any skill points and just enough stat points to strength for gear. I think it was sorc, it was awhile ago though but still 1.10, iirc.
