Taste of Nostalgia - IceTea hits level 99

Intro


My Diablo 2 history goes way back to the early 2000's. I remember a PC games magazine that my friend had, which wrote about Diablo 2 when it came out. We would read that article dozens of time until my friend finally bought the game. This was pretty much around the time when the LoD came out, because I remember him buying it as well quite soon. I'd then try it out myself and watch my friend play it, mesmerized by the atmosphere. I had had a little taste of Diablo series earlier, playing some demo version of the Diablo I, and I loved the games already.

I was wanting the game really bad myself, but I had to save a bit of money first to buy my very first own PC. The one my family had back then wouldn't most likely run that new game properly, heh. I started out with single play, but soon went to Bnet for good amount of years, little bit of on-off at times.

Most fond memories of those years and D2 are late summer nights when me and my best buddy of that time would go and buy couple big cans of (long forgotten brand of) Iced tea, stay up for most of the night and grind this game again and again. Looking back we were probably pretty damn "noobs" for a long time, but had so much fun.

Full forward some years, I had my prime time in Battle.net, achieving some "wealth" and knowledge, even. I had grown up with the game, but it was losing it's shining. I was playing less and less, until I stopped altogether for several years when I started my university studies. Every now and then I'd still think about the game, and whenever I had a sip of some iced tea, it would bring all those memories back...

I found my D2 and LoD discs by accident at the end of summer 2012, and decided to give a swirl, for nostalgia's sake. I decided to stay away from bnet, play this time on my own and finish the Hell all by myself for the first time without any company. I started an Assassin, and soon enough I remembered about this wonderful website I had posted a few times. Let's check it... and yes! They had a full forum dedicated to single players! Not a long to go and I was rocking the game with Atma, GoMule and finding many many inspiring posts from the SPF. Needless to say, it was you, forumites, who had me hooked up to the game again.

I decided my end-goal, sort of, with the game would be the Grail. Assassin (she was a Trapper, still is I think), while fun, wasn't the best character for the task. So, somewhere during the autumn 2012 a young Blizzard Sorceress called IceTea arrived to the Rogue Encampment...



IceTea



This character is my most played Diablo character ever, and very likely will remain so. She was my main MF character for a good while, had her moments in the LK, stayed in the Travi for a few years and finally pushed it to the levels 97 and 98 in the Chaos Sanctuary, and after that she went down to Nihlathak for the final level.

1-7x she quested normally. No memories of that time.
70 something she started to hit AT with really rookie gear.
Few moments with Meph, NM Andariel and Pindleskin in between,
but she pretty much kept at in the AT until she hit 96, all players 1, I think

She remained as a Blizzer all the time, but may have seen few re-specs already then, for little bit of optimization. Somewhere down the road she was my LK runner for a while, until I had more Sorcs to spare for the task.

When she was played little less when I started my adventures with my first 99er, Vodka, but at some point she turned to be my main Travi runner. First a regular one, later a very serious gold finder. I was starting to have decent roster of Sorcs capable for different tasks, so IceTea's job changed every now and then depending with whom I rolled some map worth of keeping etc. By far the most of the time she was running Travincal. She never went to kill Baal nor Ancients, just if...

I have lost the track, so I don't know the exact point when I went to try out the CS runs with her, probably soon after Gripphon or frozzzen posted about their Sorcs running two seals of CS with huge success. However, I remember that when I tried those runs too, I suddenly got an urge to level up at least once, maybe twice... or even. Don't know, I should be thinking about that later. It was around atutumn 2016 when I started taking the leveling there seriously.

By the time I hit 98, the current untwinked 99 challenge was on fire. They were making new 99ers and having a lot of fruitful discussions. I'm pretty sure I owe you guys a big thanks for making me run for my second level 99 after all. I was inspired by all of them, but hearing @T72on1 had picked a Fire Sorc against Nihlathak for the final level, I got really interested. My Chilling GCs set was really lacking almost any +Life at all, while I had many great Burning ones. What's the point of a twinked 99er if you can't show off your best items? ;)

I wrote only few updates to the guest for level 99 topic, but they cover it up for the most part. Couple horrible deaths along with ruining my Ancients within them was the worst part. Best part was finding crap loads of HRs. Otherwise it was quite an easy grind of nine months, with many other things in between.



Little peeks to her journey:


IceTea (and your average forum-poster, Grape) finds the first SP career HR

IceTea participates in the first tournament of hers, wins it. Along with couple big Grailers and one particular eth 3 socketed Tomb Reaver's

First MFO!!!

She has grown very fond of all those coins from the Council Members. Must kill them thousands of times. Rinse and repeat.

Returning to leveling! Chaos Sanctuary time.

Nihathak running with my first setup. What's that Spirit huh?

Shout out to @ffs who demonstrated the importance of - to enemy resistances with her untwinked Lightning Sorceress running Nihlathak. When I tried 'Phoenix' for the first time, it was no turning back, all I needed to do was to adjust the rest of the gear accordingly. And hey, I got to use my 2/20 Amulet again! (Although all of it wasn't needed).

Her best exp/hour during the last level was 3,66m but I very rarely paid attention to that since I was picking up a lot of junk and shrining gems and rolling charms all the time.

Her best moment during the last level. Completing the rune Grail, finally!

She has done so much running that basically half my stashes are her merit. Pointless to try and pick something. Let's just say it's a lot. Crap amount of lots of stuff for a single character. That's all :p

Her rune luck however, was spectacular for the last level. Unfortunately I spent couple of the HRs she found earlier while running Nihla, but I'm running Travincal now and I'll loan couple from there when the time is right so I can make a proper haulpic.

Meanwhile, my time is running up and I'm actually catching a flight soon... I'll be back on Sunday, hopefully there will be some questions so we can make this more interesting ;)

I may try to add some more content (isn't it a bit of a wall of text now, eh?) But let's see what I can find. Some old screen shots perhaps. Runes? Lot's of runes at least.


One last word

When I'm around here in the SPF, I often feel like there's many wonderful individuals around. There aren't any place in the entire internet I'd bother to waffle on this much nonsense, but I suspect some may even want to read this all, or even part of it.

Thank you SPF, I love this place. It keeps me playing. No way I'd play this game anymore without you! <3

Great stuff, major congrats! Those rune drops were ridiculous, and just in time for RFL too.

Glad to be of help to the Zod God and that the Phoenix setup turned out to work well overall. But I guess with all that gear it was very unlikely for her to be killed by CEs. ;) Oh I'm definitely male though, hope that doesn't screw with your mind now. :p

What's the point of a twinked 99er if you can't show off your best items? ;)
Let me rephrase that: What's the point of a 99er if you already have your best items? ;)

Join us in the untwinked awesomeness. DO IT!

Epic stuff Grape !! I'm humbled that I actually got a mention from the Zod God :).

Btw, which character will be your third 99er? :rolleyes:

Congrats and great work with the write-up. Tying in IceTea's progression through the game and your own progression through SPF was a nice touch.

Congrats again, and very cool backstory! I hope you get those rocks from Trav because I'm anxiously awaiting the rune haul pic from that last level. Based on my hazy memory, I think it may beat Izuna's haul, which was pretty solid for @NanoMist

I really like reading stories of how people got into playing D2. Mine is very similar to yours, in that my first real PC was purchased specifically for D2(I still have that Gateway PC in my closet because I just can’t bring myself to get rid of it. The memories of coming home from work and seeing those big cow spotted boxes on the porch, and hooking it all up, and getting D2 going, and getting slaughtered!!!).

Congrats on the 99’er and you are one of the many that inspire me on top of the love I have for this game. I hope for many more characters and drops to come for us in the future.
