    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    TheLoner finished acts III and IV over the last couple days. There have definitely been a few scary moments, but with Holy Freeze radius up to 10 yards, he has been pretty safe for the most part. This trap in one of the temples had snakes with a chilling attack and a holy freeze bettle boss- very nasty. A few decent finds: Manald from the chest at the end of the swampy pit (stashed in favor of blue mf ring), Sigon's Gloves in one of the Kurast temples, a 9 all res/13 mf amulet in the Kurast sewers, lots or Ral's and Tal's, and a mighty El from the forge. The Flesh Spawner/Maw Fiend packs in act IV proved the slowest going so far. This pack took forever. He bought a cheap lvl1 enchant charge staff to help with Diablo who dropped some useless rares and the belt from the Infernal set. TheLoner is starting to see a few cracked exceptional weapons, so an imbue may come soon, or he may up the Shadowfang if he can find the runes for it.

    Edit: just a question for the host: I wonder of we should leave folks off the table until they get at least the first wp -half the table is not yet out of town. Not to be exclusive or anything, it just may get messy.

    Blades made it past Andy today. I dropped the setting to p/3 for her. Hardest battle was Catacombs level 3 fighting some gostly ghouls. Jeez, they can hit. Her Bardiche does OK damage but it swings so slow. Bought a couple of Cestuses in Lut and they do OK with Fury. But a single target attack doesn't give fast progress thru the game. Looking forward to Lightning Sentry.

    EDIT: I always misalign this table. Should I copy it to Notepad first and edit there?

    Nevermore has been progressing a bit, with a frustratingly huge (and packed) great marsh and flayer jungle. Had his first (and only) NDE, with Szzark unshifting him at one hit point. Very hairy, and very lucky his modus operandi is to blind ALL minions prior to a boss fight.

    Hairy times were also had in the bazaar, with a LE thresher boss being damn near invulnerable, and highly damaging. Nev had to sink 15 of his 25 stored stat points into vit to even have a chance.

    AR was becoming a major issue, as nev had been pumping geddon pre reqs, so no boost to feral for a while. And on that note, he had gambled around a mil on mauls with nothing good. He also 3 chippied mauls at least 15 times. Nada! Super sucky.

    Anyway, he may need to drop the P setting from here on, sarina and a pack of 30 maidens almost killed him. And going is getting slow.

    I have noticed something about feral rage that I have never seen written anywhere, which is a bug and reduces it as a skill in my eyes, but I will say more after a touch more testing. I'm sure it is probably common knowledge, although I have seen people note the effect before, without understanding the cause.

    Anyway, onward. 2 levels till the rain of flames!

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    We last heard from Dorian after he rescued Cain. Since then it has been smooth sailing to say the least. I spent a lot of time gambling 2 handed swords, predominately Giant Swords and Claymores. In the end I settled with a "Claymore of the Leech", which did the job nicely coupled with a level 4 Zeal + level 1 Holy Fire. Not much else was needed, the killing speed was very enjoyable.

    In the Jail level 1, Dorian found a blessing in the form of Arctic Binding. At first I wasn't so excited, until, I remembered Dorain had Arctic Fur’s stashed away from earlier. Ah perfect! 2 pieces of that set grant me 40% MF, 5+ strength, +10 all resists, +40 Cold resist and Defence based on clvl :thumbup:. A rather juicy trade off for a measly normal Belt and 3 chipped topaz Ring Mail i must say!

    To prepare for Andriel I pumped 5 points into Resist Fire to raise Vengeance's fire damage. My plan with Vengeance is to leave it at level 1, until I can find or muster an effective source of mana leech. Until we do, I will focus on pumping Conviction and Vengeance synergies (resist fire, cold, lighting). That way I can still increase Vengeance’s damage output, while still keeping its mana costs at a minimum.

    As expected, Andariel did not enjoy the fire damage stemming from Dorian’s sword and fell without much of a fight. There really was no real tactic involved. Dorian just stood there, drinking a steady flow of healing pots, while swinging away. Easy!

    Onwards, where I am very very scared of facing the Big Bug, Duriel. I wonder how Dorian will manage, if he makes it that far!

    S/U’s for the Act: Arctic Furs, Arctic Binding, Hsarus’s Iron Heel and Cleglaw’s Claw

    Dorian the Conversion/Venger, Level 20, Act 2 Normal, Lut Gholein, points = 42

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Running scared is progressing nicely, I have had an amazing amount of luck finding MF gear, but it has not netted me any other useful gear. The only S/U I have found is a deaths belt and arctic belt, I don't use either one regularly, as I prefer an extra slot, but the deaths is handy for CE bosses. My axe that I made back in cold plains is still the best thing I could find, and its not really getting the job done anymore. It takes 6-10 hits to kill most normal monsters at this point, so I have to either use static or Ice Blast some too. I realize now that using two level 30 skills is tough early on, especially with no Merc. But I am now only only 1 level away from getting blizzard, at that point I will likely forgo my axe and use some more casting gear. I currently have 125% mf, which I think is really good for this point in the game, and I am still running at p8, but stuff just won't drop!

    Had a few NDE's, mostly to LE bosses, Andy was pretty easy, It was funny to watch a Sorc go toe 2 toe with her and not back down.

    There was a boss pack of leapers with conviction mixed in with beetles immediately outside of town, that was a tough one.

    Tried my hand at a few savage pole arms, but found anything useful to be too high required stats. I just keep telling myself: 1 more level

    It's a little discouraging to only see one other Sorc enter, doesn't give me a lot of confidence! :coffee:

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Update on PoohBear, the bear druid

    So, he managed to get down to the Jail lvl 1 where MsGarrison met her demise. Due to a little more care (and having considerable more health) he advanced on with no problems!

    On the way through the catacombs, he came across an unidentified GC which turned out to be 18% poison resist! That would prove to come in handy when he entered lvl 4 and seen the big half naked chick come chasing.

    Not one to back down or run, PoohBear gave it all he had and dropped Andy fairly easy. For that he was rewarded with a plethora of items, the best being Cleglaws gloves, and a flawed emerald.

    so, onto act 2 we go!


    GCanada PoohBear lvl 20 act2 42pts


    thanks Jason!

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Boner the Necromancer has cleared the Den of Evil, killed Blood Raven, rescued Cain and disposed the Countess (Eld). He's recuperating at the Rogue Camp before the clearing of the Tamoe Highland.

    He's sixteen and has mainly used the bone armor and amplify damage with his gemmed bardiche (an emerald, a ruby and a skull). Sometimes he used bone wall to separate packs like Treehead Woodfist's extra fast minions. I'm not sure in which direction I'm taking him. Wall & prison will be maxed and maybe even armor as a synergy for the wall and prison more than it's own sake, but what then. Corpse explosion sounds nice, but will IM + wall/prison work? I've already put points into energy as I see that this guy needs mana and I hope that he can make an Insight for himself.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Frost-Fang (the soon to be Fury-Hurricane-Cyclone Armor Druid) cleared Act 1 at Players 7. Progress seemed to be pretty slow but safe thanks to Werewolf (and Lycanthropy). Frost-Fang began using Werewolf at clvl 5 (I wanted to get some points in Lycanthropy before I started using Werewolf). clvl 12 brought Feral Rage and Cyclone Armor. Cyclone Armor was pretty handy because Frost-Fang had no resistances to anything for much of Act 1, but, Cyclone Armor can’t be cast as a Werewolf . . . so that was annoying. Feral Rage was pretty handy because it gave Frost-Fang much needed increased damage, FRW, and life leech, but, at a cost of three mana per hit . . . Frost-Fang had a very serious mana problem.

    The mana problem continued through late Act 1 when Frost-Fang managed to gamble a Maul with 10% ED and 5% mana leech, meaning, Feral Rage could be used to defeat more than three monster groups without needing to tp out for more mana potions :rolleyes: . The Maul with ED and mana leech was the only good item that Frost-Fang managed to shop/gamble. Drops weren’t any better. Frost-Fang was using a chipped topaz cap and ring mail armor, mf boots, mf gloves, mf ring, and mf amulet, but only found one set/unique . . . it came from Andariel and was useless . . .

    Andariel (and everything else for that matter) was pretty easy . . . but time consuming.

    Here were Frost-Fang’s stats at the end of Act 1.

    Act 2, cleared at Players 7, continued to be time consuming. Frost-Fang’s ED mana leech Maul needed upgrading from the start of Act 2. The Maul’s mana leech was useless against the undead and the meager enhanced damage was fast becoming sub par. The ED mana leech Maul was used through Radament when a Maul with 50% Enhanced Damage was gambled. The extra enhanced damage was pretty handy and the mana leech wasn’t missed too much (because it hadn’t really been working anyways :rolleyes: ). The next big weapon upgrade came after Frost-Fang found the Horadric Cube. Frost-Fang created about ten Savage Polearms the best being a Halberd with 67% ED and 30 IAS . . . but it couldn’t be used until clvl 26 . . . and Frost-Fang was only at clvl 24 at the time . . . so, a Halberd with 75% ED was used until Frost-Fang reached clvl 26. The Halberd with 75% ED didn’t do as much damage as the Maul with 50% ED but the extra speed more than made up for it. Then at clvl 26 (halfway through the Arcane Sanctuary) Frost-Fang got to equip the Halberd with 67% ED and 30 IAS! . . enabling him to hit the fastest breakpoint possible for Feral Rage! Add 20% FRW, lighter armor (a flawed topaz breast plate), and a 4% mana leech amulet and Frost-Fang was suddenly a pretty capable and fun character.

    Frost-Fang really didn’t have any monster related problems. Unravelers in the Halls of the Dead and every single one of Tal Rasha’s Tombs were a bit annoying but easy enough to defeat (though a bit time consuming). Duriel died without incident (let’s hear it for thawing potions, life leech, and mana leech)!

    Duriel dropped the Berserker’s Double Axe. Other set/uniques included: Cleglaw’s Chain Gloves (Sewers Level 2), Deathspade Axe (Stony Tomb Level 2), Isenhart’s Breast Plate (Canyon of the Magi), Gorefoot Heavy Boots (Tal Rasha’s False Tomb), Berserker’s Helm (Tal Rasha’s False Tomb), and Axe of Fechmar Large Axe (Tal Rasha’s True Tomb).

    Here were Frost-Fang’s stats at the end of Act 2.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Made it to Lut Gholein Got the Far Oasis WP and the Cube. I played on /p 8 for all of act 1 until Andy, I never realized how much more damage you take without a shield. I have had only 2 S/U items drop and both were Hsarus' Iron Stay belt. Andy dropped a decent 2 handed sword which upped my killing speed some, with ctc amp and extra dmg.

    The Halls were annoying with so many reanimaters everywhere. On /p 8 it took forever, but I made it through gonna try to play some more later.

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    I'm out of the tournament, if someone wants to remove me from the listing on the next table update. I forgot just how much I dislike single-pass. Really doesn't suit my play-style.

    I look forward to reading everyone's progress, however, and wish everyone the best of luck!

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Auriel, cleared everything up to Jail lvl1 WP. Only two items of note dropped as of now. Bloodfist and Artic Fur. Bloodfist was a blessing, hope a sign of good things to come.

    Auriel, Amazon LVL 18, Act I Jail LVL 1, Score 35

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    This tourney is the perfect excuse for me to make a two handed charger. So against my better judgement I've created TheStreak. Taken him only to the Cold Plains WP after clearing the Den. Hopefully he will get further than my GoldDiggers Barb that got parked in Act3. Getting the time for single pass play isn't easy for me.

    BTW, anyone know about when I can expect elite 4 socket staves to start dropping?

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    Nightmare RoF? Act 5 NM they should be seen fairly often. (my guess, take with grain of salt)

    To stay on topic: This seems perfect for my favourite Insight wielding ES cold sorc build ... but 3 "but"s:

    1, Im not sure Im ready to leave vanilla yet.
    2, I will probably never be closer to making a druid.
    3, School ... kills ... me ... !

    So. Infinity sorc, infinity singer or maul bear. Not before next week though ...

    Re: The Exposure Tournament

    you don't have to. you can still run vanilla after installing RWM, and if you keep your stashes separate you will not taint your vanilla stashes. or you could just not use RWM.

    This is not a taint problem. It is more about my inner philosopical problem, you know ;)
