Re: The Peasants Tournament

Wow, big change. Only S/Us or runewords as well?
Hahah yeah sorry, i thought about it last night and was like dam, that is actually a pretty cool rule.

No not runewords, because the peasant still doesn't know how to make them! Just S/U's as stated.

Re: The Peasants Tournament

Wow this will be fun, since so far, it looks like my Necro is prolly gonna be a jav/spear throwing Bone wall necro, I think that maybe a nice unique spear or something could become useful, only if i find it of course...

I like this new amendment, it makes it more interesting for me to wear mf gear now.

Woooo! Last place!

Just rescued cain, gonna call it good for today. I'm definitely going with poison/plague javelin as my main attacks, but I'm undecided between jab, charged strike, and guided arrow as backups.

Don't mean to trample on your idea's, but you can't use Holy Shock for this tournament, so a teslafroster isn't an option. Avenger is though!
Thanks for the heads up! Looks like I should read the rules once(or twice) more. Do I have to read through the whole thread to catch everything or do you keep the first post up-to-date?

Edit: I completely misunderstood the lvl 18 rule on the first read. I thought you cannot cross slvl 18, now I see how much wrong I was:) I think I will go with a frost zealot, then. The second type of damage will be either physical or fire - will decide on that later. An avenger without conviction won't be too easy I guess, especially without a good weapon.

Re: The Peasants Tournament

Anya's Personalization quest is an opportunity that the peasant takes full advantage of. With the help of Anya, the peasant is able to make royal classed items (Set/Unique's) appear lowly with the use of Anya's potions and special equipment. Giving a once, shiny and valued item, the appearance of an old and rusty "peasant" item. The peasant may choose to personalize a S/U and equip it or place it on his/her merc thanks to the help of Anya. Note that any S/U may be personalized and equiped.
damn you, I already sold my biggins ....cause I could totally use the enhanced damage later on on my peasant trapper? ...right? meh.
we still have to use the perzonalise quest before we progress to the next act(difficulty) right? time to make space in stash for all the godly S/U's im gonna get on normal.

Count me in!
It's great to see a new tournament appear, and just in time for the Xmas break as well.

I'm going to go for WatTyler, and he's going to be a Conc barb with a polearm (staying in the peasant theme as much as possible!)

I'll get started tonight, and try to get to at least Cold Plains.

Yes if i make any changes to the rules or get asked a question. I update the OP if it is necessary. You can see what i added/changed etc in the "reason for edit" part at the bottom of the post.

There is a first time for everything ;)

damn you, I already sold my biggins ....cause I could totally use the enhanced damage later on on my peasant trapper? ...right? meh.

Haha, sorry about the biggins :p. And yes you have to complete the quest before moving onto the next act. So you can't save the imbue quest or personalization quest for later. The peasant does not want to bother the towns folk by constantly visiting them, therefore he must complete the quest before he moves on.

As far as my own progress, i will get started with Ron tonight.

This sounds great! I haven't played the Lightning tree in way too long, So I am going with that. I am probably going to go with Lightning/Nova or something kinda different. I better put some points into ENG since we cant make insight :D

Huh, I would like to join since I never played a HC character before... Just the idea gives me chills. But there's always a first time to everything!
It seems to me that I'm getting my hands into many things at the same time (the 12th day after Christmas tourney, the MFO...) but since this don't has a time limit I'm in!

So meet Smulderrot, the druid. He's gonna be a FC/Rabies wolfie. I don't know if it's a good idea to go for a melee character for a first time in HC but we will see that soon...

Well, by the time I got off work I decided that another sorc would suck, especially untwinked. I havent played a zon since I started back, and I have never played a plague zon...so

Giselle the JabbaPlague zon was born. Poison to take them down to low health and the jabs to finish them off. We will see how it goes :)

So far nothing TOO special heading to black marsh. I found infernal cap, and some nice rares including a decent set of replenishing javs. So far I am pleasantly suprised with the power of psn javs. I put 5 pts into jab to start (which removes negative dmg) and I just spam 1 or 2 psn javs, and jab away.

Its quite fun, and a nice change of pace to MFing.

Thanks for the great tourney idea, and I will have another update soon.

Woooo! First place.

Sadly, I didn't find a maiden javelin before andy, so I imbued a fairly crappy belt. I did find a death's belt which is a serious contender for my personalization quest unless I find something really fancy between now and then.

On a related topic, I have exactly six free inventory squares (and I hate not having an extended stash while doing p8 full clears). I may have to beeline to the cube without killing anything and then come back and full clear stuff after cubing all the gems.

I have moved into first place :smug: haha

Andy took a little longer than usual because i am not used to doing it with a Bow wearing Necro, and i kept forgetting to cast amp again...http://s127.photobucket.com/albums/p143/grandmasarepeoepletoo/?action=view&current=Screenshot004-1.jpg


then i had to do my imbue quest, and didn't know what to use, so here it is:
http://s127.photobucket.com/albums/p143/grandmasarepeoepletoo/?action=view&current=Screenshot002.jpg

that is fun. well, i will prolly play a little more tonight, but idk how much.

Re: The Peasants Tournament

That imbue is hilarious. I didn't know that was possible, either. Wonder if it still works to open the cow portal... :scratchchin:

I might get started on my character today. ...Even if it's just to name the guy, that's a good start. And as a formal statement, I'll probably go SC because this is the kind of build that, when it dies (and it will), I probably won't have jacked up skills; HF Rangers are pretty basic, so why build two identical Rangers?

Good work to all that're in the thick of it!

Re: The Peasants Tournament

I reconsidered my initial choice and started with an assassin. Skill will be Fire Blast, Charged Bolt Sentry and Cloak of Shadow.

Kyoko's tremendous progress so far:
lvl 6 = -6
2 wp's = 2
1 quest = 2

total = -2

Re: The Peasants Tournament

This tournament looks like fun so I'll join. I think I'll make a summoning Druid and stick with Dire Wolves (Summon Grizzly counts as a normal synergy, right?). I won't be able to use Shock Wave but I'll still use Werebear for the extra life. I'll probably still get killed in Normal somewhere. It's also a SC char but I'll be honest when I die, haha.

Also, sorry if this has been mentioned, but what about rings and ammys? Are they symbolic of higher class and not to be used?

Re: The Peasants Tournament

Sorry for a repost of the table again but I not only started my peasant I changed their class. Same name, but Helot is now a paladin. No, not a hammer and cheese build. Four points into zeal so far. Conc and/or HF aura next probably. Gambled a decent sword off gheed and found a 3%ll ring. Thats about it for good findings. Hoping to find a white targe or a flail to give to charsi. Can flails even drop in act 1?
