Re: The Peasants Tournament

(Summon Grizzly counts as a normal synergy, right?)
Yes it does count as a synergy only.

Also, sorry if this has been mentioned, but what about rings and ammys? Are they symbolic of higher class and not to be used?
No, rings and Amulets are allowed.

As far as my own progress goes, Ron is doing fine and is currently sitting at the Black Marsh way point. I will do more progress with him later on today and will post a proper update at the conclusion of act 1.

Also please remember the conditions for posting the table. At the moment it is fine because the table isn't that big yet. If you are just posting an update please just write a brief description at the bottom of your post (i.e level, act, points etc). So that when the next table is posted your progress can be added in.

Re: The Peasants Tournament

No rings and Amulets are allowed.
So, before I delete my char and either start over or do something else, can I get a quick show of hands from anyone who found this to be clear in the starting rules, has started, and has not used either rings or amulets? 100% of the screenshots posted have included the use of rings and amulets, leading me to believe I'm not the only person that didn't manage to guess that this was a rule.

While we're at it, are charms allowed? Potions? Scrolls? Tomes? Keys? The Horadric Cube? The Book of Skill? etc.

Dropping out ... RL took over in a big way. I won't have much play time over the next month.

Only got to the Cold Plains WP and my name's not even on the table, so not a biggie.

Re: The Peasants Tournament

CG - I am the same - I thought it was strange, seeing as peasants couldn't afford jewellery, and bling would look odd on a guy in basic armour, but I never saw that rings/amulets weren't allowed in the rules. Obviously, unique/set ones aren't allowed, but blue/crafted weren't mentioned when I looked.

Morathi said:
As you are regarded a humble peasant, you are forbidden to wear anything that resembles a higher class.
That quote effectively implies it, however no direct statement was given. Slight editing of rules post for clarity is in order.

So, should we just remove jewellery before progressing further?
I'd imagine charms, and the rest of what you mentioned would be allowed, because potions/tomes/scrolls don't exactly indicate nobleclass (although technically, they imply scholarly, scientist/inventor or learned class, but that is diverging from the tournament way too much.)

(Oh, and I'm back! :p This tourney lured me from lurking.
*Shakes fist angrily at Morathi, before giving him a gift*
Nice to be back.
I'm going with a Necro at the moment - will update later.)

If i was going to ban Amulets and rings i would have made it very clear in the item section in the OP. But i didn't make a rule on them, so they are allowed. I think i might have forgot the comma in my above post, because what i meant to say was, Amulets and Rings can be used. The No was refering to the rings and amulets being regarded as a higher class. But i simply forgot the comma after No. The reason why i didn't ban Amulets and Rings is because they are such a small item that the Peasant is able to hide them with ease.

And yes to all charms, potions, scrolls, tomes, keys, cube and book can be used.

Edit- Hahah ok CG, sorry for any misconceptions i may have caused due to my silly error.

Re: The Peasants Tournament

Excellent, that's good to hear.

This is already my third char in this tournament (first - had to S&E halfway through an (early) area, so decided to delete and start over rather than potentially violate single pass full clear, second - was SC, and while SC-fake-HC is allowed, this char will have no use after the tournament and I didn't want to risk the shot at guardian), so I wasn't really relishing the idea of yet another restart.

Re: The Peasants Tournament

I like the idea of this tournament, because I get to make a hammerdin and win :D

This is my first tournament, and I won't be able to play a whole lot in the next couple weeks b/c Xmas is here.

Anyway, I just thought I'd give you all fair warning.....

Brief update, of no real significance.

I changed to a druid, and already have my progress (skill-wise) mapped out. I deliberately haven't looked at any of the guides for what I'm going to try, as I think it's all going to go terribly, briefly, and fatally wrong somewhere.

I get to bunk off work early today, so hopefully I should make it at least to the Outer Cloister and hopefully Lut Gholein.

Re: The Peasants Tournament

I played my Ikaldus to level 15, found the unique tc3 club, Felloak I think. Sold it. I think I saved Cain, don't remember, real life took over. Anyhow, I will probably make a real update when I get to positives, die, or finish A1. Good luck to all!

I'm the last!:thumbup:

First update:
Full-cleared at /p8 everything up to and including cold plains(+den of evil, cave, burial grounds, crypt and mausoleum); found stony field WP without killing/picking up anything. Grabbed and sold everything including the last single cracked sash I've come across so the amount of gold for future gambling is growing nicely. Also, 1pt sacrifice/might make wonders!

Level 12 ... -12
3 WPs ....... +3
2 Quests ... +4
-----------------
Total ........ -5

I've decided that Edric will end up being a hammerdin. I have never made one the regular way(actually questing with him) and I also realized that the tourney rules do not by any means mess up his stat/skill distibution, so if he makes it to Guardian, he'll be one of my main MF characters:p

Please say hi to Greetje. She's a sturdy farm girl whose skills are limited to fireballs and glacial spikes. She can't use 3-syllable words either...

Greetje has just cleared the Den of Evil and was rewarded by this amazing staff: http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/295/nicestaffld4.jpg. This brings her score to:

Re: The Peasants Tournament

Just a little update just so it looks like I did something. Slow progress so far, but I'm getting through. Nearly died once in the Black Marsh by getting completely surrounded by couple boss packs + swarm of Carvers and shamans. Not a good sign, especially considering I had nearly 400 health with the Werebear and Oak Sage.

I'm finally at lvl 18 so I can start with Dire Wolves and Heart of the Wolverine.

Level 18 ... -18
6 WPs ....... +6
4 Quests ... +8
-----------------
Total ........ -4

Funny how I actually lost points by progressing. :scratchchin:

It actually was mentioned specifically. But maybe you missed it?

Any Merc is allowed, however he/she must adhere to your character's rules as far as items go.
Also i don't mean to be a pest, but please if you are posting a table to make sure it is up-to-date with everyones progress. ILikeRocks placed his information at the bottom of his post and no one has updated it into the table. So please make sure you update it!

PS. Ron is at the Inner Cloister at the moment and is about to venture forth towards Andariel. I will post a more detailed update once act 1 is done.

Hope that's right. Good luck every one ;)

Edit - Thanks Kyrandia, I guess I'll have to check others table copies aswell :)

Re: The Peasants Tournament

@Morathi: Hm, I must have overlooked that bit about mercs. Thanks for the update. :thumbup:

Once more the table, because my character accidentally got deleted and krovak's progress was also lost. I hope all is in order now...

Re: The Peasants Tournament

I finally started! Thus began the adventures of General_Horrify ('Holy Fire Ranger' anagrammed). Since this character build is so simple with high damage, I'm doing full clears in only the regularly visited areas (no Pit, Hole, Maus, Crypt, etc) on /p1. I want low levels for maximum points.

Gearwise, this is easy, too. I want the fastest bow with eths, mix in resists, and I'm done! Of course I got an Ith from the Countess...

My imbue: Heavy boots w/ 19%FireRes, half freeze, poison reduction, 53%gold find, stamina heal. No frw, :\

Andy was cake with Holy Fire. But because I didn't have any plain heavy boots I S&E'ed to shop some and screwed up the Andy quest bug. No big deal; I don't plan on going back!

Found a Blood Crescent Scimitar (useless) and a Nagel (mostly useless), but nothing great for the long run. Thank goodness for a build that needs zero mana or a high-damage weapon. (lacking an exploding arrow bow might mean trouble kinda quickly though)

Level 16 = -16
Wps 10 = +10
Quests 6 = +12

Re: The Peasants Tournament

I will join, probably with some sort of Thrownecro, heavy Dex; using a BA merc, maybe Might, maybe a Fire Rogue...
Possibly I will add a ridiculously large investment in Amp Damage, which should make colorful screenshots.
