    The quest to level 99 - Classic style

    The Quest to Level 99 - Classic style Tournament

    I doubt if very many of you play classic, but i'm sure a majority of you have played classic. I recently started playing Classic just to make a sorceress for "glitch rushing" characters to hell. Classic is interesting though, so I decided to create this tournament.

    This tournament is very similiar to the "quest for level 99 thread", and the only real difference here is you have to play on Classic. I know, I know, it sounds boring. I thought so too, but I actually enjoyed playing my sorceress through.

    Time Limit
    There really is no time limit. Whoever hit's 99 first wins. Some of you probably know, but since there is no act5 in classic, baal runs are OUT. Thank goodness! We get to run[ chaos sanctuary over and over :jig:

    Rules
    The rules are simple.
    1. 1.10 - 1.11 versions are accepted
    2. Completely untwinked
    3. HC and SC are both accepted
    4. Have fun

    That's basically it. As you know runes/jewels/charms aren't in classic Diablo II, so we won't have to worry about mods like rrm/rwm.

    MP is allowed, and encouraged. Trading amongst each other is also allowed. I will be doing none of the sort, as I enjoy it more when my items fall because I found them.

    Winnings
    I don't think we need a pot for the winner to collect, as by the time you hit 99 you are going to be wealthy. Not to mention this is just for fun, not to win anything.

    characters
    Any character is allowed (except druids and assassins of course).
    Any build is acceptable.

    Here we go!
    Code:
    Forumname    build    C.Name    Hc or Sc Level

    Hehehe, well I can't speak for p8 SP.
    But I know from some old pals of mine that you gain ~11k per CS run at level 96 in a p7 party in v1.10+

    It's virtually impossible to reach 99 in classic in anything but v1.09

    Good luck!

    Maybe if you did the tournament in a patch from the past more people would like the idea.

    When I get round to getting the internet properly sorted out again, I was wondering about seeing if there would be any interest for taking a group of characters through v1.00? Not necessarily a quest for 99, but certainly a trek through ancient Diablo history. Think about it until then.

    Anyway, I took a HC fishymancer through classic 1.10 recently. If anyone does take on Samsung's challenge, I found I tried to really focus on the resists from my gear. No dex is needed for blocking, so I put as much as I needed to for equipment into strength and dumped the rest into vitality. So all shields block at the percentage shown on the shield. I was lucky enough to have a Stormguild unique large shield drop somewhere in Normal, and that lasted me until the end of the game.

    Aside from that though, bear in mind that there are no exceptional or elite uniques or set items, and there are no elite items at all. Look to rare items for the best equipment. Levels will probably be slightly lower than LoD as well, my fishymancer finished Hell at level 67 in the end. Monster levels are lower though to balance it. As an example, NM Andy's level is slightly lower, to the point where she can no longer drop an SoJ.

    Just a few things I found that might help anyone who hasn't played much classic.

    Why not do this thread in the classic forum?

    I can do this in 1.09. But not 1.10 and 1.11 :)

    I've come to the conclusion that his guy must be in denial of a serious case of ADHD. First it was a Hardcore Classic untwinked team, then it was a legit 'Infinity' on single player, now it's lvl 99 in Classic single player... notice how the goals get progressively more unreasonable.

    We could always try a Diablo I quest to 99. (I'm not sure I ever made it past 40)

    I checked out the current Europe ladder for reference.

    Expansion: 136 clvl99 chars in SC and 33 in HC.
    Classic: Highest clvl is 96 (two chars) in SC and 96 (one char) in HC.

    In other words, quite some quest.

    Hey, thanks for pointing that out. Appreciate the thought. I didn't give up on the legit 'Infinity' because I seriousely can't do nothing but hell forges over and over. I do about one a day maybe two, and I need something else to occupy my time. Thanks for posting though.

    Um, the max level in Diablo 1 is 50 and is not all that hard to achieve.
