Just updating the table to reflect my death and new character.

@Jaelen: In case you didn't see my edit, your character is waiting for rerolls.

EDIT:
@Jaelen: The trident turned into a Spear.

Re: Random Tournament 2009

Sorry for the delay. I guess I should reroll trident. Everything else is fine.


EDIT:
Sounds good. Thanks for rolling me up! :)

Re: Random Tournament 2009

I'd like to enter with a necro: 3+1 PnB, 2+1 summon, 0+1 curse. If i'm supposed to name a weapon besides class specific (wand), then dagger. So I get heads and another type of shield, right? I'm glad someone who knows what they are doing will do this...I'll do rerolls for people but need to finish the other 15 pages of the thread before rolling someone a char.

Thanks

Re: Random Tournament 2009

@Oneofakind: wands are not class-specific, so they are your weapon choice. Heads are the necro's class-specific item.

Anyway, your character is in production.

EDIT: Hmm, just to make sure: given that wands are not class-specific, your weapon choice is wands, not daggers, yes?

Assuming answer is yes, here's your necro:

Oneofakind's Necromancer

Poison and Bone Skills:
7: Bone Spear
9: Poison Nova
5: Bone Wall
1: Teeth

Summons:
6: Blood Golem --> reroll --> 5: Raise Skeletal Mage
1: Skeleton Mastery
8: Iron Golem

Curses:
8: Attract

Equipment:
Helm: Cap
Armor: Breast Plate
Shield: Tower Shield
Gloves: Gauntlets
Boots: Boots
Belt: Sash --> reroll --> Plated Belt

Class-Specific: Demon Head

Weapon1: Grim Wand
Weapon2: Yew Wand

Rerolls?

EDIT2: @below: I don't have all that much experience with necros, so I'll pass on giving advice. It'd prolly be the wrong advice, anyhow. And yes, unless you want to reroll one of your wands, that's it for rerolls.

The sash turned into a Plated Belt, btw (not an improvement, IMO, but that's the way things go sometimes. Sorry)

Re: Random Tournament 2009

Yes, wands, thanks.

Can I ask you for some advise? Blood G gets defense from IG and gives life to IG, both pretty useless. I can reroll blood and hope for G mastery, raise skells, or revive, or reroll skel mastery and hope for fire G or golem mastery. Looks like more good things can happen with blood G reroll?

Also, is poison nova worth having unsynergized, or should I reroll it? I was actually hoping for a golemancer with bone spear, and I nearly got it...thanks!

Reroll sash for sure. Is that it for rerolls?

Re: Random Tournament 2009

@jdkerr: its tough call on that SM. there is only one skill which benefits golems he could possibly get - GMastery. Iron golem is quite usefull on his own. On the other hand, if he scraps bloody, he can get three skills which benefits from skeleton mastery (skellies, mages, revieves), or attack synergy (fire golem) or golem mastery (which is much better than the life bonus from blood golem) ... in fact it can get only better.Even clay is better than bloody on his own ...

Thats ofc what Id do, not everybody is me ...

edit: and it strongly depends on playstyle for sure ;)

Re: Random Tournament 2009

Wands look find. Let's reroll sash and Blood Golem.

*Crosses fingers*

Edit: didn't see that sash had already been rerolled. Looks like I'll be wasting some str...actually gaunts already need 60, I guess your point is there are some decent unique sashs that can drop fairly early.

More edits: thanks skiffcz, just saw your post and that's what I figured out...just took me a while...

I'm actually hoping to NOT hit raise skells. Been there, done that, time for a weird and wacky tourney build.

Re: Random Tournament 2009

I would love to roll you up, but kind of don`t get it yet (for entire char skill rerolls):
I know that every three must have 1 skill, and then rest 5 point are distributed how?
Random.org every one of 5 skills into 3 trees?
or
use pattern 4-1, 2-2-1, 3-1-1 from first post? In what order?

could someone clarify me that?
When I do randomly all skills, I do 4-1, 3-2, 3-1-1, 2-2-1 as my first roll. After that, I do list randomizer to determine the skills(like 4:1, 1:2, 0:3)

Summary: Full clearing Act 3 is the ultimate test in patience. There's so many dead ends to weave your way through and multiple extra dungeons (most of which I've never even bothered to enter in the past). Everything except Durance 3 (laziness) was done on /players 8. Most monsters were killed, and most popables were popped. A Scarab pack in one of the temples gave Chrono a scare (mostly because he was staring in awe at the existence of Scarabs in Act 3!), but otherwise the journey was rather uneventful.

Finds: Arctic Mitts, Cathan's Seal, Civerb's Cudgel, Cleglaw's Claw, Hsarus' Iron Stay, Swordback Hold, 3x Ral Runes, Shimmering Grand Charm of Life (8 resist all / 12 life). Chrono also now has at least one of every chipped, flawed, and regular quality gem. No flawless types, but one perfect!

MF: 125% (152% for the mercenary).

NDEs: 1x in the temple with both Scarabs and Vipers.

Re: Random Tournament 2009

@Buraz:

Random.org every one of 5 skills into 3 trees?
That is what I do. I have 5 skill points, so I have the randomizer pick a number between 1 and 3 (each representing a skill tree) 5 times, and there you have the skill distribution.

Did I add it up wrong? I seem to be higher than everyone else suddenly...

Every WP in Act 1 + Act 2 home = 10
Every Act 1 quest (6 x 2 points) = 12
Act 1 complete = 5
total= 27.

update: (cleared up sorcererbob's score and mine)

progress: touched Inner Cloister WP

notable battles: non except for an epic on-going battle with lag spikes every 10 minutes...

notes:

i play way too riskily... even with lycanthrophy every second boss pack brings me down to 1/4 hit points approximately the same time i've slaughtered 3/4's of said pack (using feral rage against leechable boss packs barely prevents me from going down too quickly, charge it up and then normal attack to preserve mana)...
also... i like using my HOW to tank the heaviest hitting boss packs (LE rogue pack, champion death clan pack)... somehow they've never really been able to put the hurt on him (?)
my vine is an occasional tank... and i try to get my rogue to tank some as well, since she has ctc frost nova helm

notable finds: Crimson Splint Mail, Wolf Head (+1 Firestorm/unusable, +1 Werewolf/usable, +2 Lycanthrophy/great), Brutal Composite Bow now replaced with rare short battle bow (Fire Rogue: Ithera)

PS: i talk too much

Re: Random Tournament 2009

Time for a small update.
just finished act 3 with little/ no problems. I expected to have a hard time fighting mephi on 8players, but the fight is hardly worth mentioning. I only had to take 1 potion and resummon my shadow warrior 1 time. but mephi didn't give me any decent drops, so I'm still using weak *** gear.
total def = 90, and using 2 cestus with each 5-16 dmg (or something like that) but mostly thx to venom I'm doing 110-190 dmg :)

going to post my point calc just so you can check if I did nothing wrong ^^

act 1 9wp = 9p
act 2 9wp = 9p
act 3 8wp = 8p (I missed one apperantly)
act 4 1wp = 1p
act 1 6quests= 12p
act 2 6quests= 12p
act 3 6quests= 12p
------------------
total = 63 points

Summary: At this point (A4/A5 Normal), Holy Freeze > all. The pulses from the aura were strong enough to take out pesky little hordes of things (young maggots and such) in a few hits, making the majority of the journey rather easy. The first target of note was, of course, /players 8 Izual. He wasn't very threatening, so I unplugged the mouse and left to make some rice. Hephasto was a dangerous little bugger though. Holy Shock and Spectral Hit don't seem that dangerous initially, but he was able to take off a good third of Chrono's hit points with every hit. The forge dropped an Ort Rune. For Chaos Sanctuary, Chrono simply de-equipped his Flail, and powered his way through, IM or not. Fighting Diablo was a war of Smiting to apply Open Wounds and running in circles, dealing pulse damage while he bled. The mercenary was surprisingly sturdy, dying only once to Diablo's pesky Firestorm.

Finds: Arctic Binding, Cathan's Visage, Cleglaw's Pincers, Rogue's Bow, Venom Ward (!), 2x unsocketed ethereal Poleaxes, Light Plated Boots of Luck (35%, sigh), Amulet of Luck (33%). Looks like I left a Brainhew on the ground, but I suppose I'll live. :p. Chrono is now missing only Perfect Diamond, Emerald, Ruby, Skull, and Topaz from his collection. *only* :D.

MF: 135% (162% for the mercenary).

Nothing exciting (NDE) yet, although I remembered cold crow can be a pain! I was looking to gamble a +3 teeth wand, then realized I couldn't use base wands, so I spent my money gambling boots...then was surprised to see yew wands show up at level 7! So: rare boots with good resists but no MF, cap with two chipped saphs for mana, +3 teeth yew wand, cold rogue with poison/cold/fire bow and 2 chipped topaz cap. Other than that, I plan to "streak" though act 1. Decent luck with chippies and some very nicely placed shrines (xp, mana renewal, and skill). Of course, by reflex I raised a skellie after my first kill, then immediately unsummoned it!
