    Which level are you in the end of certain stages? - thread

    When I play I tend to run areas until I reach a quite high level this is how I level through stages.

    N Act1 - 20
    N Act 2 - 25 to 32
    N Act5 - 56
    NM Act 5 - 70 to 75
    Hell Act 5 - 80 +

    So how do you level? =)

    A1: 14-16.
    A4: 24-26.
    Normal: 36-42.
    NM: 65-70.

    heh. I'm the same as Neksja. The faster I can get to Eldritch/Shenk, the better. x).

    I've only ever kept track of when I reach what, up to level 30 since thats when the important skills are unlocked. I usually hit level 18 in the catacombs, then maggot lair is where level 24 is reached. If I do all the tombs, then I reach level 30 in the beginning parts of act 3.

    Bassen, how on earth do you have the stamina (not in game, you own :wink3:) to level to 32 in act2 nirmal? :dizzy:

    Depending on character (sorc's just go 30-ish in act 3, tele to normal baal, level to 40-50 at normal baal and then tele trough whole nm :tongue:)
    I've the same reasoning as HHB, act 1 I try to go for 18+ to get the skill, in act 2 it's usuall kidna slow, but I'll reach level ~25 most of the times. In act 3 I hope for level 30 asap to be able to FO/lf/ww/fury/hurricane/etc/etc the living crap out of the rest of act 3, together with mephy. Then I'll try to leave normal at level 45, which usually does not require any baal runs if I actually played trough act 5 and doing quests.

    In nm I play/tele posrt trough, often trying to hurry as much as possible, since nm is kinda the middle filler where you don't get new cool skills and you don't really get the challenge of hell (as well as the possiblility od gosu drops :wink2:)
    Try to level to 75 before I go into hell, sometimes less if I am a teleporting char, sometimes more if I feel like I need to (need a few more levels to match hell Alvls, to equip a nice item etc.)

    I'll echo just about everyone else here. Level 18 in act 1 for the skills, then as fast as possible to act 5 eldrich, where I level until at least 42, as there are a lot of good pieces of gear that become available at 42.

    NM I play the acts/areas I like, and speed through the rest unless I want to get to a certain level for gear.

    Hell can start as early as level 70, depending on the character, but usually 75 or better.

    I tend to go with whatever /p8 gets me to for normal and Nightmare, and /p1-3 for Hell - so something like this:
    • Normal Act 1: ~Level 20
    • Normal Act 2: ~Level 25
    • Normal Act 5: ~Level 45
    • NM Act 5: ~Level 70
    • Finish: ~Level 80-85

    These are my minimums. In practice I tend to hit these levels then play through the rest of the act on /p1

    SC:

    17-18 by end of Act 1
    22 by end of Act 2, 24 if I feel like it.
    24 by the end of Act 3
    27 by the end of Act 4
    After the Bloody Foothills, Eldritch + Shenk runs until ~37
    Finish the rest of Act 5 and Baal runs till 45-50 ish.

    NM and Hell it's a bit more varied, I don't really have a pattern for those.

    HC completely different.

    Same here. Only difference is I do full clean in normal and NM. So my level looks like:

    about 20/21 finish A1
    28/29 finish A2
    35/36 finish A3
    near 37 finish A4
    about 49 finish A5

    then about 75 finish NM

    Hell would be played at the player setting my build can handle with reasonable speed. May skip swamp pit (never like there), and may not kill Nihlathak. depending on the player setting, finish hell at least between 85 - **.

    Well, obviously :tongue:
    I still have trouble reaching much over 25-ish (spirit sword) Do you do all false tombs and side areas? I can never be bothered to, I hate playing in act 1-4 normal :grin:

    How much re-run do you do? P8 won't get you there alone, without some serious re-run areas.

    Single pass P8 will get you to 28. If you kill a "little" more, you may reach 29. But from 29, you won't get too much exp in A2. I did try once to re-run until 30 before entering A3, and I gave up, too slow.

    @zarfen: full clean P8 won't give you much exp over 28 before A3. You will be surprised how "little" exp you get to full clean the 6 fake tombs.

    Not particular with the earlier parts, but:

    Normal Act 5: at least clvl45 before engaging WSK.

    NM Act 5: at least clvl75 before going to Hell.

    Hell Act 5: if I can help it, and the build is not a pain-in-the-*** to level through Pindle, I'll strive to get at least clvl80+ before WSK. Otherwise, if the build is equipped with the planned end-gear, I'll engage WSK even before clvl80. This happens when I'm bored with the build, most of the time, then I'll just catch up later through level runs.

    I'm also not real particular about the early parts either.

    I enter nightmare at 42 for casters (skillers and class specific uniques available) or ~50 for melee characters (so their chance to hit is better, also a lot of good melee gear opens up about then). I have gone as high as 58 (BKWB) on normal Baal runs though.

    I usually run nm Baal to 73-75 ish.

    Pat/Mat: level 78 to 80. I don't do full clears on the way through Hell. And I don't normally play over p3. If I have something with a really high level to equip that I want to play through hell with, I level on Pit runs. Have levelled as high as 85 in the pits.

    N Act1 - 14
    N Act 2 - 18
    N Act 3 - 22
    N Act 4 - 24
    N Act5 - 45
    NM Act 5 - 70
    Hell Act 5 - 80

    This is my typical SC way. In HC tournies, its a lot different. (I only quest up to end of act 4 and then rush myself and baal after that) As I am quite impatient, I don't bother leveling much at all. I just run along most of the time which is why my levels are a lot lower than everyone else here.

    EDIT: I play on /players 8 BTW
