    Sept

    I've decided since i'm bored and playing D2 again, I might as well set a goal, and my new goal is a complete sept, 7 guardians.

    Anyone currently working on theirs or maybe have completed theirs (eh?) feel free to throw some advice my way or just wish me good luck. :buddies:

    The Septavirate is the quest for seven Guardians, one from each class.

    Borlag kicked this idea off a few months back, and even set up a web site for tracking progress. He has since taken a RL break from the forum, and the site has gone dormant :( Trenshadow (I think?) was thinkng about picking up the project.

    Anyway IIRC these members are chasing this quest:

    AlterEgo - Assassin, Necro, Druid
    Nightfish - Barb, Zon (inactive)
    Butzull - Sorc (inactive)
    nemar - Assassin
    Trenshadow
    Tenaka
    Gouda
    Huk
    El_Communisto
    A_shikoff
    Kamelbarn

    The only advice I have is to pick your best, most comfortable builds. It's tough, and generally slow going. Oh yeah, watch out for the FE bug :grrr:

    Good luck!

    I'm on that list too.
    :flip:

    Probably going to end up being:

    Baba - Zerker
    Baba - Conc
    Baba - Throw
    Zon - LF/Strafe hybrid
    Sorc - CB/Orb
    Pala - Hammerdin
    Asn - Trapsin
    Druid - Wind druid
    Necro - Overlord

    Working on my necro and throwbaba at the monent. And no you didn't count wrong, there's 3 babas up there, just because they're my favorite class. :)

    Hi,

    I am indeed one of idiots trying to finish the septavirate. Not progressed very far yet, but they are the only chars i am playing, except for one SC MP char. It all started with the three way dance tourney chars, so my sept is in Matrix style. (The tourney started after the matrix III premiered).

    So the progress so far:

    Niobe - LF-javazon - act III, Nightmare - lvl 60
    Trinity - trapassassin - act IV, Nightmare - lvl 61
    Morpheus - concentrate/beserk barb - act I, normal - lvl 16
    The Twins - Shockbear + Grizzly - act I, normal - lvl 1
    Merovingian - fishymancer - act I, normal - lvl 8
    Agent Smith - Fanatic zealot/convertadin - act IV, Nightmare - lvl 61
    Persephone - Fire and Ice sorc - act I, normal - lvl 1


    All the others and the extra rules that we are following (hey, it shouldn't be too easy) can be found at:

    http://www.butzull.plus.com/septavirate.html

    The site is not completely up to date, because butz is very busy in RL, getting married, an new job and relocating across the world. We hope too see him back in full action in a few months, but maybe he will be less active.

    It would be great if you could follow the rules (for muling etc.), but making it in any way is a great achievement.

    Have fun,

    Gouda

    I am also in for the septavirate, but I have some added restrictions in my quest:

    * No MP or muling whatsoever.
    * Each area of the game is to be cleared once. No more, no less. That includes Nihlathak, all the Kurst temples and the Cow level.
    * It must either be a tournament character with some wacky restriction(s) or another non-cookie-cutter build.


    Characters:

    - SniperBlazie (sorceress), level 82 Blaze Enchantress with rogue merc, Crystalline Passage on Hell.

    - Lucky (amazon), level 70-something, all stat- and skill points randomly distributed, random merc (Might), Lost City on Hell

    - Aaliyah (sorceress), level 74, almost 2/3 of skill points randomized, all equipment in the head->amulet->.....-> boots sequence must have names in alphabetical order, Rogue Encampment on Hell

    - Sten (barbarian), level 50-something, 2/3 of skill points randomized, must use set/unique items in all slots for which such items have been found (it´s full by now), travels with a Lightning Iron Wolf, Lost City in NM.

    - Diana (assassin), level 25, Tiger Strike/Dragon Talon/Bow assassin that will later team up with a barbarian mercenary, only skills up to level-12-bracket are allowed, Flayer Jungle in Normal.

    - Venus (assassin), level 28, trapper, may not use weapons, shield, headgear or armor, and only leather type gloves, Kurast Docks in Normal

    - Isorion (necromancer), level 28, reflective damage golemancer (only one minion is allowed) with 1 point invested in CE, necro and merc must go weaponless, Kurast Docks in Normal.

    No Paladin or Druid started so far.


    All these characters follow the official Septavirate rules, except SniperBlazie who has saved her a** with ESC/Save & Exit at least three times. But for myself, I would count the sorceress part as completed is she pulls through. On the other hand, I honestly belive that Aaliyah actually has a better chance to make it all the way...



    Advice (other than general HC advice):

    Play something you enjoy playing. Don´t look too hard on the goal. Enjoy the ride. The game is for fun.

    Good Luck!

    Yep, I'm intending on taking over the website. Hopefully I'll get some time this weekend to download the files from Butz's site and put it up on mine.

    Currently I have a Fishymancer at level 62 in Durance 2 NM (wow, they really made that level big!), Hammerdin lvl 47 A2 NM, and a few others in A1-2 normal.
