    I think I will try to host a tourney. :) My IndianaBones fishymancer is still a priority. This tourney is focused on classic D2. The reason? I have never tried Classic. And Classic gameplay seems to be as dead as D1 forums :p
    Feel free to join :) Especially the people who never tried it !

    Reward: Fun! Experience!

    Winner: everyone who finish the game at least on normal difficulty. Extra points for finishing the nightmare (+1 pt) and hell difficulties (+2 pt). You can get an extra point for all unique items in every slot (+3) and for using a whole set of items (+3). Even more points ! Every set item you find = +0,5 and uniques = +1.

    Rules:
    1. Use only 1.13 - 1.14. If you want to play earlier version, it must be declared with a reason,
    2. No twinking. "American Dream" rule - From rags to riches !
    3. SP only of course
    4. HC = needs declaring. No disqualification after death. Just note it.
    5. Only self-found items.
    6. Victory is not score-based
    7. Report your progress here.
    8. No Druids / Assasins ! These are expansion classes.
    9. Re-running areas and bosses is acceptable.
    10. Using external stash (ATMA / GoMule) is acceptable.

    To start a character, just untick the expansion box.

    Little help for newbies:
    http://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/a-low-key-classic-tourney.811265/ - differences between expansion and classic.
    http://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/build-guides-and-faqs-thread.611653/ - a must read for all new players.

    Barb because I want to get some experience :)

    If someone can put a better version of this, please do so ! :) Maybe I will update the post with a file with a table?

    Good luck and have fun ! :)

    Showtime !
    I've cleared everything up to & including Stony Field. Included a full ATMA dump.
    Got a cool shield from Corpsefire:
    Doom Tower
    Buckler
    Defense: 7
    Chance to Block: 35%
    Durability: 10 of 12
    Required Strength: 12
    Required Level: 2
    Item Version: 1.10+ Standard
    Item Level: 4
    Fingerprint: 0xc1d96147
    +5 to Mana
    +13% Enhanced Defense
    +10% Increased Chance of Blocking
    Lightning Resist +5%
    Attacker Takes Damage of 1
    15% Faster Block Rate

    Also got a nice Skullcap from Rakanishu:
    Corpse Cowl
    Skull Cap
    Defense: 14
    Durability: 30 of 54
    Required Strength: 15
    Required Level: 4
    Item Version: 1.10+ Standard
    Item Level: 8
    Fingerprint: 0x183278f1
    +1 to Energy
    +23% Enhanced Defense
    +15 to Attack Rating
    +1 to Light Radius
    10% Faster Hit Recovery

    Hardest battles were: Cold Crow (as I was supposing) and Blood Raven. Survived without a death. :)
    Cold Crow was harder because every archeress from her pack was cold enchanted, not only the main one.

    Skills: so far, Axe Mastery is a priority. I have decided to take The Way of the Axe because barbs are starting with one and coolness. Swords are for f*gs :p

    Stats: prepared strength for A2. I will pump up dex from time to time, especially when I will be lacking on AR. One handed axes don't require any dex so I do it mostly for more AR.

    Other notable findings: short staves with nice bonuses, few scepters too. Nice gold gains.

    Edit: added rule 8
    Edit #2: added more help (external to diabloii.net)
    Edit #3: added rule 9 & 10
    Edit #4: even more help ! :)
    Edit #5: Added myself ! :)
    Edit #6: updated myself ! :)

    The third link isn't correct, it's the same as the second.

    I won't be joining this, since my playing time is very restricted in summer time and I already have 2 tournament characters going. Good luck though :).

    Corrected it. Thanks for noticing it and for wishes! :) I will update the thread & create a file after finishing Den of Evil.

    Edit: It started very interestingly ! Got a cool rare shield from Corpsefire ! I wanted to go frenzy but I decided to switch to concentrator.
