The Spear-Person Challenge Some heroes of sanctuary prefer dispatching demons hand to hand, face to face, up close and personal... while simultaneously staying as far away from danger as possible. For those brave souls there is only one choice of weapon: The Spear. When you touch a dagger or a scimitar, you feel light headed. When the demon hordes see the interminate length of your Mancatcher, they know the end is nigh. Rules: 1. You must use two handed spear weapons. Since Trident-type and Spetum-type weapons look like tiny little forks, you may not use them. Only use Spear-type, Brandistock-type, and Pike-type weapons. (You can use regular(inferior) weapons until you can buy a spear). 2. Progress through the game on at least players8 in Normal, players5 in Nightmare, players3 in Hell. You may re-run completed areas or bosses on any players setting, as much as you want. 3. Hardcore mode. If you dies, you dies. 4. Untwinked. Muling allowed. 5. No merc restrictions. Bonus, Optional: 1. No Spear-type weapons. That means only Brandistock-type and Pike-type weapons for you! (you can use a Spear until you can buy a Brandistock) 2. Progress through the whole game only on players8! Exceptions: 1. If you acquire a rare spear that hits the fastest Whirlwind speed, you may use it, regardless of type. 2. If you're an Amazon, you can use Amazon spears. Elaboration: 1. Spear-type refers to Spear and it's exceptional and elite version. Same for Brandistock-type, etc. 2. Your character must be holding a spear and hitting monsters with their spear. You can have summons and cast spells, but the idea is to dispatch of the monsters via stabbing. For example, you may freeze monsters with Glacial Spike, and then do the stabbing. 3. When progressing through the game, it's enough to kill a quest monster(or the super unique that's blocking the way) on the required players settings to consider that area "done". Also, you don't have to do this for side areas. For example: - clear Den of Evil, defeat Corpesefire, now you can run Blood Moor on any players settings. - kill Blood Raven, now you can run Cold Plains, Burial Grounds, and all side areas there. - kill Rakanishu, Treehead, Griswold, now you can run those areas. - kill Countess, now you can do Tower and Black Marsh. - kill Smith, now you can do Tamoe Highland and Barracks. - kill Andariel, now you can run all of act1 whoever you want. Conclusion: The goal of this challenge is to beat the game using a spear. To go from poking at monsters one by one with your Brandistock, to mowing down hordes with your impossibly long pillar of vengeance!
