    A long, long time ago, in a forum far far away - kidding, it was this one. Crafted items were once part of the normal setup, but we had to make things a little harder.

    Alright guys, I'm going to be making an updated scoreboard over the next couple of days with our first update. All I ask is that you include the following information in your updates for me:

    1. What level your characters are;
    2. What Act your characters are currently in;
    3. How many points you've earned with your characters (individually).
    If you guys really wanna make life easier, for you and me particularly, feel free to copy your team's code from the official scoreboard and just edit and post, like I'm about to do!


    Team Talking Heads (PSYCHO) - 6pts
    MeatFist - (Barb: Warcries/Skills - 7/6) - lvl 1 - Act I Norm - 0pts
    Molpadia
    - (Amazon: P&M/J&S - 7/6) - lvl 1 - Act I Norm - 0pts
    MrMarrow
    - (Necro: Curse/Summ - 10) - lvl 20 - Act II Norm - 6pts

    For about a minute, yes. Then I realized that come NM and hell I am going to like a meditation aura much more than 100% MF. All 3 of my builds are mana hogs, and I am still not used to playing hardcore. Insight takes a lot off your plate, and lets you run with a much bigger red bulb, which I suspect I am going to need.

    I came up with a team name (finally).

    Team The Egyptian Magician (Friiser) - 9pts
    Hathor - (Amazon: B&C/P&M - 7/2) - lvl 13 - Act I Norm - 2pts
    Mut-Netjer
    - (Assassin: Traps/Shad.Disc - 14) - lvl 1 - Act I Norm - 3pts
    Ptah
    - (Necro: Curse/Summ - 10) - lvl 19 - Act I Norm - 4pts

    I'm starting to think I should have gotten the first one to the cube first, that way my inventories aren't crammed with chipped gems.

    The Andy plan is definitely not against the rules, as you're not moving onto the next Act :)

    However, it is exactly the plan that killed off a lowbie Necro of mine some years ago, so tread carefully!

    AHHH, the sweet sounds of experience ;)

    I would highly recommend taking your first character through the early part of Act II just to get the Horadric Cube - even though you'll miss re-running Andariel with that particular character, you'll thank yourself with how much inventory space you'll get after cubing gems and mini-rejuvs.

    First major scoreboard update incoming. If you didn't let me know what level you were, you have a question mark by your level *glares at everyone... lovingly*, but I at least gleaned enough information from your other posts to kind of get an idea of how many points you might have ;)

    All these years, I thought it was travelling east that broke the quest! Cool!

    Edit: Still had some play in me, but not enough for a full clear on another character, so I decided to start Sylphenesys. She's level 14, rocking it hard with 5 Tir runes and level 11 Charged Bolt. No quests completed yet, just trying to buff her up a little so she's not quite as squishy. I've deeded countless <15 sorcs because they have like 40 life, lol.

    Got a little more time in with Sylph this evening after getting to a good stopping point on my Super Unique Paladin.

    Charged Bolt is really fantastic for an early skill. You can use it as area damage from a range, or get up close and stack the bolts like a Javazon does with Charged Strike. I like it better than going the Fire route so far, and Cold is the worst I think, until 24.

    Thinking about mid to late game, I'm not sure if I want to quest with MF, or go straight for survival/killing gear, and leave the MF for runs at certain points. I really want to make sure there's some goodies in the prize stash, but I feel like a large amount of MF isn't very useful with the gear restrictions.

    What are ya'lls thoughts?

    Edit:

    Looks like I'll be farming here for a bit :)

    Geez, I could only hope for a nice setup like that for Countess with my Barb - or even Andariel.

    I usually quest with MF at least through Normal and most of Nightmare... But in Hardcore? Yeah, I feel you - maybe save that for actual farming/non-questing.

    My plan is to quest through with MF gear until Hell and re-assess there, as I normally would in a typical single-pass situation. I don't know that I'm going to do much re-running in general, maybe just some small sets of runs here and there to keep my level at a respectable threshold.

    Having been in training at my new job this week, I haven't had the time or, frankly, energy to play. As of last weekend, we've got:

    Team Avengers (WilsonFisk) - 6pts
    WhiteWolf - (Druid: Elem/Summ - 10) - lvl 20 - Act II Norm - 6pts
    BlackWidow - (Assassin: Traps/Shad.Disc - 10) - lvl 1 - Act I Norm - 0pts
    Thor - (Paladin: CSkills/Off.Auras - 6/2) - lvl 1 - Act I Norm - 0pts


    I intend to get quite a bit of play time in over the weekend and will have more updates soon. :)

    I could probably glean the previous thread for this answer, but I will ask here since this is a bit of an updated version:

    Does the above mean that we can't (or shouldn't if it can be helped?) use items that fit into this section, and should be stashed away?

    Or can prized be plucked from characters, in-game stashes, and the prize-storage stash?

    Doesn't matter for me, yet.

    That's a fantastic question, actually. You're free to use any and all items that you can during the tournament. Generally prizes only came from the Prize Stashes contributed by the players, but that also means if you die, those items are gone completely as well.

    We'll see what others think of this.

    Got my cube with the Necro, and is close to finishing Act 2, so I got my amazon through Andariel. Assassin is next...

    I've been mostly running with MF gear, did manage to get Pluckeye (TC3). It was difficult not to wear the Nagelring (27%MF) I found, lol.

    Yeah I ran very close to 200% MF for most of Act I on the merc kills on the Necro. Found only 2 S/U (1 TC3) on him.

    The sorc is running all mana or mpk gear, and she's doubled that before the Outer Cloister. RNG sure is funny, huh?

    I think I'll keep MF on the poisonmancer as long as he doesn't need other stats.
