Skill-less tourney Signup and progress thread

Once there was a time of need. Heroes was sought throughout the lands to defend the mortal realm against the hordes of Evil. Long were the battles but finally the mortal heroes succeded.
In one tavern in a city, not far from Tristram, one man was not impressed.
His name was Zealless and he was a Paladin reject.
He arranged a competition for ordinary folks, without those special skills the heroes of old frequently used, just to proof that killing Baal is nothing special.

And here it is, the skill-less tourney!

Rules:
1. You may not put any points into any skill.
2. You may play SC, but If you do you're out of the tourney when you die.
3. No multiplaying.
4. Rerunning is allowed.
5. All items and runewords are allowed, except those not normally available to SP chars.
6. Any /players setting may be used and altered at any time.
7. All quests must be completed, but no rewards are required to be collected.(They need to be finished before exiting the act they're in. Rewards can be gotten later)
8. Atma may be used as an extended stash between sessions, but nothing you haven't found in this tourney goes on your char/merc.
9. Any build and any merc merc may be used.
10. The winner is the one that has gotten the most points before stopping or dying.

Point system:
-15 points if using a merc.
+2 point per quest, +1 per WP
-1 point/character lvl gained
+10 for finishing normal
+25 for finishing NM
+50 for finishing hell (bloody lightly)

Starting time/Ending time
Starting will be allowed as soon as you've signed up in this thread. In order to limit the amount of rerunning you'll be doing it will end in march 31 at 24:00 CET (gmt+1). The signup period will end in january 31st, but if someone really wants to participate and missed the signup It can perhaps be arranged.


Prize stash: Everyone should stash of ALL uniques and set items they find that they are not using to be used as a prize stash.
These items will be divided among the top 3 competitors by choice. The winner gets 5 items, the 2nd place finisher gets 3 and the 3rd place finisher gets 2.
The rest will keep for a later tourney...

My first go at HC too :smiley:

Milb
HC/SC: HC
Name: Hermes
Class: Paladin
Merc: no

Quick question, I play RRM/RWM, can I leave my RRM on and not make any RWM runewords or would you prefer I play vanilla?

Quick question 2: I take it I can resurrect my merc if they die?

Hermes is doing well so far, just saved Cain, still only using attack and throw though, haven't found any +skills gear worth using. This wand is why I was thinking of using a Necromancer:

Wand of Self-Repair
One-Hand Damage: 2 to 4
Durability: 15 of 15
Staff Class - Normal Attack Speed
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 2
Fingerprint: 0x88a86b72
+3 to Skeleton Mastery (Necromancer Only)
+3 to Raise Skeleton (Necromancer Only)
+2 to Amplify Damage (Necromancer Only)
150% Damage to Undead
Repairs 1 durability in 33 seconds

Found it after about two minutes...

Anyways, my current score:
-15 merc
+6 (first 3 quests)
-11 (lvl 12)
+5/+4 (wps, do town wps count?)

= -15/-16

Can someone make a table for the scores? I will try but I have never done it before :tongue:

I agree with Skunkbelly! That merc has got to be worth 15 points as long as you can live through normal difficulty, and the merc makes that much more likely! The real question is, "Can a magically challenged mage actually succeed in this tourney?"

The rule about runewords was just for the mod users. As long as you dont use any special benefits from the mod you may use the mod.
And of course you can ress your merc. After all you pay good money for them, they ought to give you something in return. =)

The town wps dont count, only because I like the idea of the participants starting at 0 point.

Update format: Ill go along with any update that includes name,class, lvl, latest WP and score. However Ill appreciate if you specify how the score is obtained.

Lastly about that table, it looks ok. There's no need for more details, those can be read through the updates.

(Ill start my char tomorrow)

So -15 for merc, +2 for Den of Evil, +1 for Cold plains WP and -6 for lvl 7.
So are you allowed to change merc at your own will?

OK, I will sign up. No assassins yet? Meet Selena, the determined but slightly clueless. Like most of my young characters, she will be MF crazy for quite a while.

Yes, I will use a merc.


(You Sorcie players, make me proud and become Conquerors!)
