The No Vitality Tournament

Code:
  About editing the table:  I tried what Neksja suggested (pasting the table in notepad and editing it there), but the formatting was still all wrong.  Is there a different setting for the message editor that makes it easier?[/QUOTE]

When you paste the table into notepad, make sure that a) the window is maximized, and if the code still looks all out of whack that b) the "Word Wrap" option under "Format" is off.  Beyond that, I can't think of anything that should be screwing with it.

One question before I enter (and my character may be parked/dead quickly since I may or may not be busy soon) You can Socket with rubies and +life/vit jewels right? By which I mean, of course, to say that the Vitality as a stat point is out of the question but other shady means are justifiable, right?

Yes, they are very justifiable and are going to have a lot of reliability put on them :grin:

Definitely. All items are allowed, but wearing a 4 P-ruby armor rules out a resist one. :wink3:

well Emilie got off to a start. cleared Den, killed Blood Raven and Rescued Cain :p and boy i really have low HP, even with a HP charm i found, at lvl 11 i have 78 or so. i gotta get decent traps before Andariel, in melee combat i might not last so long :) Assassin is not so bad, not my favourite class but was nice throwing fire blasts around all the time :D now im just mainly waiting to get LS so i get some real source of damage outside of my katars. been fun so far tho.

Emilie is now lvl 11 at dark wood waypoint.

Ok. I'm in. Autolycus: the hardcore bear-druid. This IS going to be fun... P8 for as long as I can swing it.

Edit: Cleared out Cold Plains and will likely camp out among the corpses for a while. The XP was welcome and the only good drop was a rare sceptre from Corpsefire that will be appreciated. Don't know what to throw my points into yet: Oak Sage or Lycanthropy... plus there's the summons. I think Carrion Vine will come in handy later...

Couldn't resist going on :grin:

Bitey cleared his way all the way to Arcane Sanctuary, got the WP and went to bed. Not complete clears, left Ancient Tunnels behind, maybe going there before act3. Finally Bitey solved a bit his weapon problem. Once I got the Cube, I cubed all his runes and got Tir and El together, so this is introduced:

Code:
Steel
Superior Flail
'TirEl'
One-Hand Damage: 4 to 31
Durability: 33 of 33
Required Dexterity: 35
Required Strength: 41
Required Level: 13
Mace Class - Very Fast Attack Speed
Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
Item Level: 20
Fingerprint: 0xa3d912e7
+20% Enhanced Damage
+52 to Attack Rating
+3 to Minimum Damage
+3 to Maximum Damage
Increase Maximum Durability 10%
+1 to Light Radius
25% Increased Attack Speed
150% Damage to Undead
50% Chance of Open Wounds
+2 to Mana After Each Kill
Socketed (2: 2 used)
Got to love that 50% Open Wounds, helps very much. It's been easy, although one Near Death in Claw Viper Temple, 3 Vipers same time charged to Bitey, but fast rejus saved his fur. Also made another nice find IIRC it was from Maggot Lair, it's nice trires gloves:

Code:
Imp Hand
Heavy Gloves
Defense: 5
Durability: 14 of 14
Required Level: 9
Item Version: 1.10+ Expansion
Item Level: 17
Fingerprint: 0xabe8854b
+2 to Dexterity
Lightning Resist +18%
Cold Resist +11%
Poison Resist +7%
9% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items
Half Freeze Duration
One more level and Lycanthropy is maxed. Propably putting those 4 points before Fury to Werewolf for AR and Attack Speed, IF Bitey makes there :smiley: Here's also Bitey's stats at the moment:

Code:
Strength: 84
Dexterity: 66
Life: 313

Destroyer made it to the Outer Cloister without any major problems or major finds. I skipped the cave until I had 122 magic find, then I went back and killed Coldcrow. Alas, no Gull Dagger. I'll get it one of these days though!

Although I haven't had a single green or gold drop, I have been finding excellent charms. Here's a list:

large +6 life (normally I wouldn't use this, but I only have 93 life with it on)
small 1-2 cold damage
small 1-5 lit dmg, 6 poison res
small 1 dexterity, 7 lit res
small 7 poison res
small 5 lit res
small 1 strength, 6 cold res


It's the best luck I have ever had with early charms! I'm only using the top four currently, but the rest are stashed and will be used later for sure.

Stats: Level 19, 70 strength, 55 dexterity, 93 health, 29-55 damage, and 120 magic find (including my rogue, who finishes every unique monster). Looking forward to Holy Freeze at the next level.:smiley:

I decided to change the location to the waypoint. I want it to be more precise than just by act. These things are far easier to edit in notepad, guys; I recommend doing that. (Makr sure you preview it anyway)

Oh well, why not? In spite of absolutely loving druids, I've never built a summoner. I guess Now's the time. I'm in.

Just a small update for me. Made it up to the Cold Plains and full-cleared it. So far so good.

Another thing about editing the table. If I can't be bothered moving it into a fixed width editor (like notepad), then what I do to create an entry is select another persons row in the table, copy and paste it, then use the "insert" key on the keyboard, and start from the start of the line. This overwrites the text, so you type your name, class, etc over the other persons, and if their name is longer than yours, use a space to overwrite the extra characters. You can use the same method then to update your row each time you do an update.

Better get off and play now...although she does worry me, it's well into the 30's that she comes into the skills she needs, and with no vit, getting there is anything but guaranteed! Good luck all, and especially Mordeth! Go-go ES Sorcs! ;)

Butz. :dunce:

My first tournament since restarting D2. Since I'll be dumping to Str I'm hoping that leech, a defiance merc, maxed holy shield, and tons of physical damage will keep me alive at least until Hell. I hope I got the table right.:confused2:

Destroyer made it to the Outer Cloister without any major problems or major finds. I skipped the cave until I had 122 magic find, then I went back and killed Coldcrow. Alas, no Gull Dagger. I'll get it one of these days though!
Wow, I am very impressed! How did you rack up so much magic find in such a small amount of time/progress?

Me:
16 - Gloves of Fortune (Gambled)
16 - Boots of Fortune (Gambled)
18 - Gemmed Helm (2 Topazes, shopped from Gheed)
27 - Gemmed Ring Mail (3 Topazes, shopped from Charsi)

My mercenary:
18 - Gemmed Skull Cap (found)
27 - Gemmed Ring Mail (shopped from Charsi)

The fortune's were really bad rolls, too - they go up to 25%; 16% is the lowest I believe. I also found jewelery with magic find on it. So in most other cases it would be somewhat higher, actually. :smiley:
