Synergies HC challenge!
« on: January 30, 2013, 05:54:23 PM »
This is done through a bit of trust... that you the player are not going to cheat the system to your own gains!
you will die, just a question of if you make it further then the rest or not!


Some universal rules:

Gameplay must be updated with current versions as they are released.
Elite difficulty for all play
Hardcore for perm death

No other mod other then NORMAL SYNERGIES and a ui of your choice in your pak folder

No trading
No stash
No console

No 'bug' abuse its no different then console!  (if there is any)

Play any character you want.
with any SYNERGIES included pet.
any build.
you may reroll the world.

Play through the base game until you beat the netherlord, then use mapworks or my Znojmo maps to hit level 100. (i would recommend against derinkuyu for your life expectancy)

DO NOT ENTER NG+ mode.  stay in the base mode of the game only.
If you die, stop that character, and restart!

post in this thread often!

Hmm, interesting.  Right now I'm 83 HC but I will have to start over to make it fair.  Also, I'm using Remastered, D3 Font, D3 UI, Ninja (although I haven't tried it yet), and a 2hr stormclaw mod (http://forums.runicgames.com/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=41434)  so I dont have to recast the damn thing every minute.  I can probably do without that, would just make it a pain in the ass.  After losing my 100 Engineer in DF 105 I decided the berzerker is a better choice due to the ridiculous life regen you get with the blood hunger passive (3k hp/s at 25k hp) and the fact that the Eng forcefield skill gets instantly blasted by any boss in DF.  I'm posting my pak so you can tell me if I can or cannot use the stormclaw mod Salan.  Also, Derinkuyu after level 20 is the only way to level  :P

Its not that I mind the stormclaw, its just that the short cast time was intentional on their part to slow your dps cycling down a BIT.  And if we start using those type of mods, we'll have to go further and further down that rabbit hole with each person.

ONE RULE I DIDN'T TOUCH ON..

rerolling the world to bypass a challange... (in this case (world boss))..

you can reroll to farm after wiping a level, sure.  But rerolling to bypass danger, should it be allowed, can i stop it from happening even if it isn't... hmm

You can't really monitor that at all.  You can always just run away though XD  As it is right now I have to reroll every time I clear floor 1 of Derinkuyu.  I'm also getting a %block bug where it's only using what I have on my shield and not using my STR or the Blocking VI scroll I have equipped at all  :'(
