    I of course am joining. I deleted the guy I had before so I could start fresh. FuzzyLumpkins has joined the fray. I'm not sure if I'm going wolf or bear, but they should have plenty of life either way, so I hope that will compensate for what is sure to be horrible resists. No good finds yet. No druid helms at all, and a whopping zero topazes. Coldcrow proved to be problematic, but I have survived the first real test. Onward an upward.

    Got as far as rescuing the old nagger and clearing the Dark Wood. Treehead was a right royal pain, as were most of the packs in Tristram. How does one break packs up without howl?

    Also, a question for the host: are we able to enter multiple characters side-by-side?

    Well I gotta enter this. I have 2 other characters going in other tournaments but I've already played them a each a little bit today so I feel like starting something new.
    This tourny sounds great. Doable, but definitely going to be tough.

    I'm going to join up with a mace mastery barb who will end up wirling most likely. I'm going to rely on the huge amount of runewords that work with mace, hammers, sceptors and of course staves. Because staves do almost the same amount of damage as elite polearms I'm surprised that insight wasn't banned outright. I'm going to have to take full advantage of this loophole and make a series of insight staves.

    edit: But now that I've thought about it, might not work so well because of wep speed. hmm. Have to be explored more.

    His name will be Benkei who was a famous warrior monk in Japan and responsible for creating the "giant side-kick with a big stick" archetype in Japanese culture.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Arthur has moved on nicely, thanks mainly to some decent MF resulting in some decent gear to sell on and gamble with.

    He was successful in getting a nice Voulge from Gheed
    Bone Bite
    Voulge
    Two Hand Damage: 7 - 24
    Durability: 46 of 50
    Required Level: 4
    Required Strength: 50
    Fingerprint: 0xedbae1e4
    Item Level: 18
    Version: Expansion 1.10+
    5% Chance to cast level 3 Fire Bolt on attack
    18% Enhanced Damage
    +29 to Attack Rating
    +72% Damage to Undead
    +41 to Attack Rating against Undead
    Adds 1 - 7 Lightning Damage
    5% Life stolen per hit
    and has also recently gambled a pair of Leather boots with 21% MF + 26% resist cold. No other gambles were worth much, but he's hoping to get a better belt and gloves soon, and fingers crossed for a weapon upgrade. Chance to cast Amp + LL would be nice!

    He's made it to the Outer Cloister, but Charsi will have to wait a bit for her Mallet.

    No real problems, Howl is lvl 5 (which really helps) and he has some skills saved for lvl 18 to get Concentrate, Leap Attack and Battle cry. That should help his killing speed a bit. Screwed up and picked Double swing by mistake early on, but that's something he'll have to endure.

    Managed to find a Gem shrine in the Black Marsh, so he has a Flawed Topaz ready for the 3os Breast Plate he'll upgrade to when he makes it to Lut Gholein.

    edit
    BTW The countess dropped a Ral.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    If someone can add me to table as my PS3 browser has a character limitation, unable to get whole thing copied.

    Joining with an old staple Shifting Druid. First 11 levels will be the biggest test as potions won't help much. Not decided on Fury or FC as of yet. Leaning Fury simply to do with ease of getting a decent weapon through multiple sources.

    Snave, Druid LVL 1, Rogue Encampment Act I, Score 2

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    TheLoner has finished act II with full clears, all quests and wp's. He experimented with a few savage polearms once he got his cube, but couldn't really get happy with one. Finally, after only one rune in act I, more started dropping so he was able to make 'steel' in a superior claymore. Despite this better weapon, he still had a major addiction to red potions. Later, he decided to forgo the bit of mf from his armor and make 'stealth' in a splint mail. Not a single set or unique had dropped all the way to the false tombs, when a nice unique two handed sword dropped (Shadowfang). This was a huge imporvement with 100%ed and 9% dual leech. He is mostly using zeal with holy freeze, but in the tombs he made extensive use of salvation to break up undead mobs. He took out Duriel on p5, out of concern for his hearty cold resistance. No TP outs were necessary, and only useless rares dropped.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Well, MsGarrison met an early demise!
    Should have known something bad was about to happen, the GF came home and started talking, got a little distracted and BAM pack of archers got the best of her in jails of act 1.

    Not to be dismayed I will be re-entering the tourney, plus DarkMatter's boney nec was lookin a little lonely, so my newly departed sin should keep him company. :wave:


    final update on MsGarrison
    5x quests = 10pts
    lvl 18 = 18pts
    7x wps = 7pts

    total= 35 pts

    had a couple great drops in the Arctic Fur and the Hand of Broc that will be sorely missed!



    for my next entrant (and hopefully with better luck!) I am going to attempt another build ive never done before:

    A Bear druid!

    I figure if I cannot have a shield or merc, and will be getting hit, I want the most life possible to take those hits.

    I started him up and will have a progress report at the end of each act if/when possible.

    Also, can any of the members with experience let me know if shock wave is at all viable? I am hoping to stun everything and then run around in mop up mod ASAP. However never tried a bear druid so not sure if it works as good in practice as it looks in theory.

    thanks guys, and good luck with the solo adventuring =)

    Sorry to hear about the deeds.

    I have done a maul/shockwave bear (twinked with partial IK set) and it is great fun and pretty safe. Shockwave offers amazing crowd control (doesn't need to be maxed) and maul is like frenzy (you will need a fast weapon).

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Yesterday I started a teslafroster ranger called Smokey. He was done in in the Tower where a boss pack of extrafast Blood Clan was his demise.

    I think I'll try a bonemancer next. Bone armor and wall might just make it.

    I've retired my Paladin, and started a Bowazon instead. Progressing much quicker, and more enjoyable to play (for me anyway). Will be interesting to see how I go without a Valk and Decoy. Main skills will be multishot (mobs) and GA (single targets), with MA as a backup if I get mana burned/run out of arrows/need a (slow) PI solution. I may also put points in FA as a better PI solution, not to mention the chilling effect. Saving all the points I normally dump in Valk and Decoy gives me lots of options.

    Updated GCanada's table entries for him. ;)

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Once again I need another to update table to include current details. Thanks in advance.

    Cleared Act I on /players 8. The inefficiency of potions while shifted has been problematic starting with Forgotten Tower onwards. Andy fell quickly for a change. Although, was using an unique Bardiche. No runes besides the guaranteed one from Forgotten Tower. Currently stopped at the Sewers LVL 2 WP.

    Snave, Druid LVL 21, Act II Sewers LVL 2 WP, Score 44

    I'm entering the tourney. Been playing through really slowly, referencing the Untwinked, Single Pass, MF guide. Tis fun, although slow.

    Couple more waypoints added, almost died twice to the same LE boss in the Jail lvl 2. Pitspawn Fouldog was dispatched easily, but the LE goatman nearly got me. Pretty sure I got the points right. More progress later.

    Up to the Outer Cloister with Vanessa. Is currently cleaning everything up with a mighty Gemmed Long Bow and level 13 MA (the level at which it is free). Hoping those yellow gems start paying off soon.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Arthur has made it to Lut Gholein by the skin of his teeth!

    There were a couple of lucky finds that helped him, mostly a rare Barb Fanged Helm with +2 Mace Mastery (and other minor mods). He gambled an Ok 2H mace from Gheed which maximised his damage. Belt full of health pots, rejuvs and Antidotes, and he managed to concentrate Andariel back to hell!

    She dropped the most green I've ever had from her, all of it pretty useless for this tourney
    [​IMG]
    . I was suprised to get so many greens, esp as I had swapped out my MF hat for the Barb helm. Obviously, I've sold the Hsarus' Iron fist, muled off Death's Hand (needed for my HC Grail), and temp equipped Hsarus's Iron Stay for the +20 life and cold res.

    Arthur's Score so far:
    lvl 20 = 20 points
    6 Quests in Act 1 done = 12 points
    9 WP in Act 1 + Lut Gholein = 10 points
    42 points so far.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    I managed to start. So far full clear /p8. BlackDeath, the bone necro, started as a melee with javelins, but soon things started to be a bit tough and progress rather slow (and painful for my wrist :)). As soon as he reached lvl 18 he switched to casting. Well it was even bigger pain, as after killing few monsters BlackDeath had to visit town for mana pots, and those minor ones really are not that great. But well, we managed cut through and now he starts to be killing machine. No interesting drop up to now though.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    I think I'm going to enter this tournament to give myself another character to play, don't want to just have one. I'm thinking of a WW barb, but I haven't played one since 1.09. Does anyone have any experience with an untwinked WW barb? Can he have decent killing speed in hell without a good runeword weapon? If I'm going to be whirling 10 times to kill fallens, I'll just enter with something else since the other character I'm playing right now is melee as well.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Umbriel has had some very weird drops. She hasn't been wearing any mf, except for the one nagel ring she found, but she's wearing that for the MDR, not the mf.

    First, Biggin's Bonnet dropped. Then, Biggin's Bonnet dropped. Then, Berserker's Headgear dropped. Then Shadowfang dropped. Then Berserker's Headgear dropped. Then Shadowfang dropped. Those aren't typos, all three of them dropped twice.

    The Diggler dropped earlier, and saw a fair amount of use until she found Shadowfang. Kicking with it was noticeably slower, but with a 6% leech from cathan's ring, and 9% dual leech from Shadowfang, it was still pretty safe.

    Act II wasn't terribly eventful or dangerous, except for the beetles. With the 3 MDR from the Nagel, though, it wasn't too bad. Duriel himself wasn't too rough, the 15% total life leech definitely had something to do with that.

    Act III wasn't too bad, but resists were starting to be a problem. Dolls were a major pain, even though it's only normal. DTail is pretty strong at the moment, and does AOE damage, which can kill several of them right next to you. Umbriel used the left mouse button for movement in Doll-infested locations, so she wouldn't accidentally kick several dolls to death before she even saw them. Meteor-summoning vampires were also a pain -- the hydras from the council didn't even tickle at this point (she had a total of 6 MDR), but on the other hand, she only had 7% fire resistance. So ironically, the vampires were much more dangerous than Bremm Sparkfist. Bremm dropped a Sol, which will go into a Lore hat as soon as she has a spare Ort.

    She was apprehensive before fighting Meph, since her cold res was also 7%, but thawing potions helped, and Meph tends to try to do melee hits if you're in range, so he turned out to be easy.

    At level 29, she gambled a repeating crossbow (for the speed), and is now using it. She misses the leech of Shadowfang, but appreciates the speed of her new weapon.
