    Yes, agreed, which is exactly why I'm pitching it. I would just implement it, but I didn't want anyone to feel bad for having done that, so I'm asking everyone :)

    I think this was asked previously, but I can't find if you can swap your personalized item for a new one? Also, do I have to wait until I get the personalized item quest reward before I start using it?

    I haven't found anything yet, still early in act 1 normal but figured I should clarify now :).

    Great questions!

    Once you've personalized an item, you may not personalize another, unless we change the rules to allow an extra personalized item for your mercenary (just waiting on a couple more folks to respond before I decide). And yep, you will need to wait until the personalized item quest reward. I want it to feel rewarding to kill Nihlathak, as many folks skip him due to the danger involved

    I dislike the idea of a personalized weapon for the merc as it will inevitably result in everyone using act 2/insight mercenaries.

    Well it doesn't have to be a weapon, but point taken. The more I think on it, the more I'm thinking I won't make any changes

    Finally had time to sit down and put this together!

    After clearing out the den, Malice needed a guide to lead her through the wilderness outside the monastery. Thankfully Blaise the Rogue was glad to help!

    Screenshot010.jpg
    That's her on the bottom right, walking away.

    Malice decided to deck herself out with colorful topazes to mix up the goth gear, and to contrast her dark soul.
    Screenshot007.jpg Screenshot011.jpg
    "No, I don't know how to get to the forgotten tower. Nobody does. That's why it's called the forgotten tower." Malice found it anyway, by shaking down some of the local imp mans for info.
    Screenshot017.jpg
    Turns out the monastery was mostly unguarded, so Malice and Blaise took it back without much of a fight! Wonder why Kashya was having so much trouble?

    Screenshot028.jpg
    (FHR charm! Nice) Metal boots are great for stomping, but Malice isn't quite used to the weight yet.
    Screenshot033.jpg
    In the Jail, Malice found another good luck charm! Actually it's an amulet not a charm.

    Screenshot034.jpg
    The stash! Overburdened is right.
    Screenshot037.jpg
    Andariel was slain, but at what cost? Poor Blaise, struck down in her moment of victory. She actually died AFTER Andariel went down. Poison?
    Screenshot036.jpg
    Some good gems, but that's it as far as drops go.

    And with a heavy heart, Malice travels to Lut Gholein!

    (forgot the table!)

    @Rosy Maple - Like myself you're playing a kicksin and have a tree in your username, which clearly marks you out as a patrician of exquisite tastes. If I might ask a fellow 'sin, what skills are you planning to use in combination with DT later on? Were you thinking about Traps (what I'm doing), or Venom, or Phoenix Strike or something?

    @Oakbrain I think I'll stay away from traps, just to be different. The skills I'm planning on maxing are Talon (duh!), Fade, Venom (need that extra damage...), Mind Blast (gonna roll in with my army of monster friends), and rest of the points into Shadow Master. Hopefully it works okay!

    My AC is broken this weekend so it's too hot to do anything more involved than videogame marathon, hehee. So I'll have another status update soon probably

    Tryste has completed probably my least favorite section of any single pass tournament - the Arcane Sanctuary and the Tombs of Tal Rasha. It's not that I despise them, but in normal, your build isn't really fleshed out yet (usually), you're trying to let your mercenary kill things for more MF, and if you're doing full clears, as I intend to do, then doing all 4 sanctuary branches and all 7 tombs gets pretty monotonous.

    That out of the way, I'm only 1.5 levels away from getting hydra, which is quite exciting. Aside from the sanctuary and tombs, Act 2 went quickly and smoothly, with some pretty interesting drops and gambles along the way. I found a few low level uniques that I won't use:

    Screenshot009.jpg Screenshot010.jpg Screenshot013.jpg

    A few set amulets (one Iratha, one Angelic)

    Screenshot011.jpg Screenshot012.jpg

    But by far, the highlight of this session was this gambled pike

    Screenshot014.jpg

    Fazel's damage with this thing is just excellent, even without the amp going off. When amp is added it's just gravy

    Also these boots are a nice addition

    @Chaostar sorry about the deeds. I had a rough introduction to A2 also, with champ mummies and holy bolt doing lots of damage, which got my attention. Hope to see another entry or good progress on untwinked 99er :)

    Septimus finished A3 without much drama. He got great map with early left turn into Flayer Jungle, but he hadn't gotten the Spider Cavern yet, so it ended up being necessary to go back after tagging and clearing LK WP. And at 29.5, I decided to full clear after all so he'd have grizzly for the temples in case there was a door trap.

    Truly nothing of note for the level, with an almost-stair-trap mixed in (the archers were champs but vipers were normal mob) the only thing meriting a screen shot before Meph, aside from what would normally be a great drop in untwinked play (but not for this tourney):
    A3 N (Stair Trap ish).jpg
    A3 N (Chance Guard).jpg
    There were actually quite a few set and unique, but they don't help here :) Meph fight was on p7 and involved two trips to town for mana potions. I tried moating him, but it didn't work, so we ended up just finding a nice foothold and recasting grizzly as needed :D
    A3 N (Meph fight).jpg
    Nothing useful from his drop, and we've gambled through gold for circlets without an MF roll. I'm hoping to get through A4 this week and maybe finish Normal next weekend. I'm also rethinking the build, maybe just focusing on fissure and volcano, with maxed grizzly and oak, and then tornado or hurricane once he moves into Hell (assuming he makes it that far). With Cold Rogue, I think we may be able to manage FI/PI bosses (or just skip them). I'm thinking how nice a maxed Oak can be for extra life given the tourney format.

    Good luck to all the entrants!

    BabyBeasts has now killed Duriel and found Great Marsh and Spider Forest waypoints. As usual in Act3, if you don't find your target, you're good to check each inch of the map... i'll have to do it later, then.

    During the end of act 2, i guess game was trolling me... regular set drops here or there:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    A Tal rune, my best rune drop since start:
    [​IMG]

    An upgrade on gloves which were 12MF only:
    [​IMG]

    A nice amulet i may use... currently holding a 17mf, i guess the little loss is worth the res:
    [​IMG]

    Duriel drops were Act 2 mercenary oriented:
    [​IMG]

    So after those Duriel drops, switched to a Defiance aura merc.

    Somewhere in act 3, this one drop: 4MF GC! (pic to be added later)

    And finally, the stash: decided to cube runes and gems, it made a lot of room... kinda :)

    Tryste has completed a bit more than half of act 3, with the latest waypoint being the Kurast Bazaar. The sewers are my least favorite zone in act 3, so I decided to close my session there. I found a gem shrine in the Flayer Dungeon, and decided to upgrade my flawless amethyst. It may have been a better choice to up a topaz, but the best I had at the time was flawed, and I wanted to try my hand at my first craft - a caster belt. The result is quite nice :)

    Screenshot018.jpg

    I had some good luck gambling Circlets as well, and I have two circlets of luck with 34 MF, which brings my total MF to 240 when Fazel kills something. His damage is noticeably higher than my hydras, so he gets most of the kills at least for the time being, but we're moving along quite well.

    I had a horrible stair trap in what ended up being the true temple, with a holy freeze rogue (not Sarina) and yetis (the red ones, but I can't remember what they're called right now). Lots of frantic teleporting and I managed to split things up enough to make it out ok.

    I also found my first rare amulet:

    Screenshot017.jpg

    It was junk, but nice to find either way

    Tryste, level 32 Hydra Sorceress. The Sewers await

    Just stopping in to update the table - halfway through Act 2, done with the desert areas and corresponding dungeons. I'll give a more detailed update after finishing Act 2. The going is slow, as I am still lacking any reasonably powerful weapon. Great progress everyone!

    I'm in! Now that RFL is all done I can add another project to the loooooong list of current D2 projects I have going on. May I formally present Thangail, the future Fanatic Smiter with a side of Conversion and Vengeance. Smite is a skill I've never used, and really don't have any experience with, so I figured what better way to learn than by potentially killing a character while learning on the go? He also won't be doing full clears of all areas and will be taking a more "go big or go home" approach to this one. This is mostly because I don't have large playing chunks to do the clears (and have too many projects on the go), but also because I don't really feel like it. A recipe for success, if I've ever heard one! :p

    --

    Out he goes!

    His first point went into smite, though it takes too much mana and does too little damage to be very effective right now. It does still have its uses of course, as seen with Corpsefire to keep him at bay. Thangail moved on up through the Cold Plains, reaching level 8 and hiring a Rogue before killing Blood Raven and her crew. he also found a decent scepter along the way, as well as his first (and second!) chipped topazes. A quick trip down to Coldcrow where he got a bit more practice smiting.

    Through the Stony Field he went, and soon he found himself in Tristram where he had his first moment of "learning things along the way with Smite". Griswold apparently can't be stunned or knocked back by it. Interesting. Either way Cain was saved, our topaz count was up to 4 and we got ourselves a shield upgrade before a quick trip down the tower to remove the Countess. He left us our first rune, an Ith, for our troubles.

    Hit 18 in the Outer Cloister, which enabled Thangail to switch to Concentration as well as opening up vengeance for use against particularly hardy monsters. I've been pumping Smite, and it's starting to show its worth now. The stun length is up to 2.2 seconds, so we have enough time to stun several monsters at once allowing the Rogue to safely kill some of the tougher packs such as this:

    [​IMG]

    It works against singularly strong monsters too, as we were able to pin the Smith down in his own doorway and render him completely useless. We shortly found our first S/U in the Axe of Fechmar, which was left on the ground to rot. Easy goings from there until a very rude welcoming to the Catacombs level 3 (note that this screenshot is after a half dozen or so of the enemies were already killed):

    [​IMG]

    We were able to weather it by smiting them to the outside, pounding pots, and running in circles to avoid the lightning balls while the merc plinked them 1 by 1. The rest of the trip to Andy was uneventful and actually so was the fight. We snuggled up and hammered away with Vengeance, and didn't even need a single town trip!

    [​IMG]

    A standard topaz and a good shield replacement made for a rare good drop from the Maiden of Anguish, and Thangail will be resting on that accomplishment for a bit in the desert for now.

    Septimus continued his progress, completing A4 and taking out Shenk. The rest of A5 will wait until the weekend so that I can do it all in one go and avoid having to run through an already-cleared area.

    A4 was smooth sailing, with Izual and Hephasto dropping without trouble, but a little patience needed on Izual at p7:
    A4 N (Izual).jpg
    A4 N (Hephasto).jpg
    The merc's savage bill is losing a bit of steam, and we'll be on the lookout for an upgrade for him or an A5 merc for sure. Hell forge provided some not-useful gems and a very nice one: A4 N (HF).jpg
    River of Flame and Chaos Sanctuary were pretty straight forward, and Diablo went down at p3 with just a bit of excitement:
    A4 N (Diablo fight).jpg
    Merc dropped to an early firestorm, and Septimus pretty much dodged lightning hoses and firestorms while waiting for timer on Fissure to run and casting grizzly on Diablo as a distraction. I had to go back to town for more pots and remembered to run away before dropping the TP to avoid coming back into a bone prisoned TP. But I didn't actually go far enough as shown below in the Diablo drop pic. Fortunately, the Grizzly and resurrected merc made quick work of it and Septimus could move before Diablo threw a lightning hose at them :) I recast it to see if it would be bone prisoned again, and it was, as shown in the pic:
    A4 N (Diablo drop).jpg
    The merc valiantly freed Septimus from his peril but didn't survive the rest of the battle :oops: Drops ended up being unhelpful and sold for gold. He gambled again for circlets, and picked up an enhanced damage one that Emilio is currently sporting. The crew then cleared up through Shenk and grabbed the WP before taking a break until the weekend.

    But not before power shopping for 3os helm, but only before 15 minutes before getting bored and realizing he had only 3 pTopazes and could shop 3os BP in A2, which happened quickly, and allowed him to sell flawed topaz one before realized Emilio still has the chipped topaz ring mail :rolleyes: But Septimus pushed him MF up to 185% and is hoping for a nice weapon upgrade for merc and some MF/resist gloves and jewelry to prepare for NM.

    * * *

    Welcome to @Pb_pal and excited to see the smiter progress, as it's also a build I haven't played. And cool to see good progress by others!

    Nice progress everyone, this tournament was a great idea really! And the Druid community is active on this topic, nice to see summoner's also, it seems that it is not played much beside... maybe not efficient/strong enough? Much relaxing for now on a personal point of view ;)

    ***

    On his side, BabyBeasts is progressing in A3, just hit the Flayer's waypoint, Gibdinn and dungeon done, Khalim's heart left to get, 1/3rd level to 30 :)

    Some nice progress/maybe questions - and obviously one hard ruling drop...let's see all of that!

    Session started with an upgrade on merc armor
    [​IMG]

    Then a 3os BP: nice for a MF armor at that point :)
    [​IMG]

    Afterwards, a useful rare ring:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Gibdinn and reward:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Sadly had to leave this on the way (there have been quite some sets/uniques on the road, but this one...)
    [​IMG]

    Close to the end of the session, another BP, but a rare one... will have to think about which one i want to put topazes in, 3 or 2+some useful stuff ?
    [​IMG]

    A Ral drop... kinda :)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And overburdened stash, even cubing is not enough anymore!
    [​IMG]

    See you on next update!

    I'm so glad so many folks are enjoying this. It's funny - I was driving home from work a few weeks ago and had a character come to mind (what ended up being Tryste). I haven't played much D2 recently, so I wanted to do something a bit different. It wasn't until the day I went to make the character that I had the thought to invite others to join me ala tournament style. I'm so glad I did though, as I love reading everyone's progress

    BabyBeasts has now hit lvl 31, arrived at Travincal waypoint, next to Council.
    Edit: Meph down but got only half a level for that... will take time to level more in A4!

    Tir drop on LK run (lol), but what a map it would be in Hell oO
    [​IMG]

    Anyway got a little belt upgrade... well, not that much, but still
    [​IMG]

    Took the boots for MF. Well... stacking MF
    [​IMG]

    I am no caster sadly!
    [​IMG]

    TraviRal
    [​IMG]

    And in the end, stash status after the cubing of the dropped gems, including topazes... decided to go for less MF but some fire res.
    [​IMG]

    Edit:
    Mephisto gave nothing useful
    [​IMG]

    But surrounding council dropped an Ort rune
    [​IMG]

    And finally, A4 shopping was useful, more or less... i guess having the Life tap possibility is a nice alternative to Weaken for big packs ?
    [​IMG]

    That's it for tonight's session, see you on next update!
