    Speedrun?

    Someone suggested this in another thread:

    Speedrun D2.

    Now, how would you do it? You'd need a build that can move fast, is not very item dependant and can kill fast.

    Any build ideas?

    Um...yeah...a pally with whatever aura it's called on that makes you run fast..or the Barb with Frenzy i think it is..

    I guess by running you mean actually feet on the ground, right? If so i think the pally aura takes the cake, even with the Assassin having BOS.

    If you mean speedrun as in running for MF on bosses and such, then yes- nothing beats a sorc.

    I think he means speed run as in this website: http://speeddemosarchive.com/

    I would say.. if its Normal difficulty only, a Fireball sorc. Good low level attacks, good mid level attacks, and Static Field/Meteor for easy boss handling.

    It's probably been done but someone should host a tournament based on this to get some serious results. Points for speed, points for low levels, etc.

    Problem is, the faster you go through normal areas, the harder time you'll have on bosses.

    sounds like a very good idea for a tournament indeed.

    only normal difficulty, only points for speed, nothing else. winner is who kills baal in least time. dont need to do any quests if you dont want to, but you ll have to lvl a bit to be able at all to kill baal. i saw taht you can kill andi at lvl 1, but it s surely far from fast since you ll die alot of times.

    also, it must be twinked. we could say that you ll have to do it in one run, so you can fill your stash and inventory ( no cube, no quest items twinking allowed ) and then go for it.

    would be a freaky idea :)

    For a tourney, you might have everyone start at a certain character level say level 12. This would give characters who are fast of foot the advantage of racing thorugh Act I Normal as they head to kill Normal Baal. Otherwise, low level characters don't have their speed skills

    Everyone must start with a new map seed (play an MP game then return to Single Player.) Maybe everyone starts with the same map seed. And perhaps the use of teleport waystations should be prohibited - if you need to go back to town you run!

    Your top contenders should be:

    Paladins with Vigor
    Barbs with increased speed and frenzy.
    Assassins with BOS and Cloak of Shadows for blinding monsters
    Werewolves with Feral Rage
    Fast-killings sorcs who otherwise move slowly (no tp skill allowed.)

    i doubt you ll get past ancients at lvl 12 :) anyway, to make it worth a note on the site i assume you should make it from the real beginning, as in make a fresh char and start right away
