Journey:

Sophie approached Normal/NM like most, quickly progressing through content and stopping at Pindle for levels. The goal was to reach hell AT as quickly as possible and as such we arrived heavily under geared/leveled and suffered the bulk of our deaths due to poor starting stats. Being that this was a SC project, I was ok with sacrificing a few deaths while clvl was still low and time lost being next to nothing for the sake of pushing XP quickly and getting a few drops along the way. I continued farming AT and eventually transitioned to LK with this map to acquire some of the more essential gear (HotO/CtA/Delirium/CoH) then back to AT to finish early leveling. At clvl 93 we started doing P8 2-Seal CS runs, C/Ting to the star (center) and only hitting Vizier/Infector packs along with unique packs that spawned close to the seals. This stayed the approach until the very last level. At 98, I used my last respec quest and spent all but 40m of the last level at P8 Nihlathak. The final 40m was acquired by killing Ancients.


Credits:
  • Thanks to diabloii.net for the amazing atmosphere and community!
  • Thanks to the entire untwinked 99er group, you all gave me motivation to push my own character further at some point or another!
  • Thanks and congrats to @Pb_pal @PhineasB @ffs for being the sorcs to hit 99 before me, leaving behind a pile of information and ideas to help with my own!
  • Thanks @Kitteh for relaunching the thread and giving us all a platform to complain about our drops on the way!
  • Thanks @onderduiker @NanoMist for tables and posts that were referenced for invaluable information!


Next?:

Sophie will serve as my dedicated LK runner and go to for multiple facets of RFO. For now I'm going to roll a nice map and try to produce 6x Ist for my Pit Barb-to-be's off hand. I also have a personal goal of finding a new P7/P8 pattern of Vex+ (highest I've found that was a new pattern is Ist). I've considered trying to reach 99 on an untwinked HC Sorc or Paladin as well, but for now that'll have to wait as I'd like to finish off the Pit Barb and practice speedrunning.

Huge congrats to you; I could never possibly hope to do such a project in that amount of time! I had your stream on in the background while I was working on some stuff around the house last night and I was very impressed with how fast and precise the runs were. I've never attempted anything like that before, but if I ever push toward 99 I might consider using my level 94 blizz sorc - the 2 seal method sounds very appealing to push for the next few levels before considering a 98-99 respec. Did you just skip over immune seal bosses during those runs, since you weren't aiming to bring out Diablo for the XP?

@jonnyphive Yes, I skipped CI rolls in CS
@Pb_pal I’m quite positive sub 250 is possible and maybe even sub 200 if you start in Classic and convert at Act 3. Save 61m for 98 from all 3 ancients :eek:

I'll say it here also: Major congrats! I hadn't realized the total time was so quick, making it even more impressive.

@PhineasB I definitely thought it was more but when I took the time to run the rough numbers I realized I was greatly overestimating how much time I had spent, even when accounting for Gomule/stash management, 2 deaths at Nihlathak (5% more), and inefficient runs from an experience gained perspective at AT (MFO, ~14 hours) and Nihlathak (RFO, ~20 hours). Like I mentioned earlier, another streamer and I were discussing how to minimize time spent on 1-99 and if you started in Classic and converted after Act 3 Hell you could save even more time by having all 3 Ancients quests available for 99.

Awesome achievement @Yng. Very quick time to get there IMO, but I am slow haha. Awesome write up and I tip my hat to you good sir.

I noticed your collection of skillers, and I have found so many more than that. It could be from running LK so much and killing monsters I don’t really need to(which is something I need to stop doing if I plan on getting to 99 this century). Considering you did the task so quickly it makes sense you would have less skillers since your time was spent much more efficiently now that I think about it.

@darkstarhub i actually have many more skillers of course, I just didn’t list the ones that I didn’t deem “post worthy”. I did skip many many drops completely for a lot of my running sessions. Also I really rushed this thread to have it up, I will be adding all of the drop picture links that I have along with some other things tomorrow. Off the next two days!

E: also some of you may have seen me mention a big free pile of stuff that I had been collecting throughout the grind to 99. I intend to stay completely self found but I’d hate for all of the good stuff I have no use for to go to waste so if you do happen to be open to using items others have found please PM me and make your requests before that list goes up. Try to be considerate and only ask for things that you’ll actually use.

@Yng Awesome !!! Getting to 99 is a major task on it's own, but doing it untwinked in such a (relatively) short amount of time is nothing less but impressive !!

If I'd be so fast, I'd consider doing a 99er Sept ... :rolleyes:

Again, very well done! Those are some nice rune drops in particular.

I agree sub 200 hours should be possible with an untwinked Sorc, barring some bad luck in LK or certain essential uniques not dropping. As confirmed by your progress with Sophie, even without the rare best-in-slot gear like Fathom and Griffon's she was extremely fast.

Should have everything that I wanted to include added in now. Good bit of links and I did it late so if you see something out of place LMK. Thanks all for the kind words.
