The Untwinked Level 99 Progress Thread, Revenge of the 99ers

Has anyone done a meteorb the whole way to 99? I'm tempted to, but not sure if it would add a ridiculous amount of time.

@Luhkoh - that's what @darkstarhub is doing. It is not as fast as pure blizz variant would be, but the most important thing is what's fun for you and will keep you motivated to keep pressing for the XP.

And welcome @seventeenpounds :)

As for me, Quinta has another ~100 Baal runs behind her, and is half way to level 96. We very nearly started things off with a game changer on the first run, but the diadem was green :(

Baal himself provided an Arachnids a few runs later, and then we got two nice GCs in WSK, one a Ruby of Sustenance and the other her first skiller :)

A second green diadem dropped right near the quarter-way mark. The only good find worth a screen shot for the next quarter was this ring:
Baal (FCR Ring w mana).jpg
Other notable finds were Horizon's, set Colossus Blade, and set Corona.

She is going to switch up to Diablo to farm a few more essences and use one for a respec to test out the Arachnid's and the ring. TGods is very solid, but I think the next FCR break point may speed things up even with a net of -2 to lightning fury. That will also mean a little charm shuffling to max lightning resists.

Pestilence continues to plug away, but I will hold off his next update until 97.5.

@Luhkoh - that's what @darkstarhub is doing. It is not as fast as pure blizz variant would be, but the most important thing is what's fun for you and will keep you motivated to keep pressing for the XP.
Ok sweet. Thanks! Is there a way to see someone's posts throughout a specific thread? I wanted to go back and see @darkstarhub 's journey to 97 so far, but even going through his posts from his profile takes a bit.

I'll have to update when I'm home this evening, but made some good progress with my 99er reboot sorc. Managed to cube a crystal sword for spirit in act 1nm!

I think the search functions allows for searching a thread by user name. Not 100% sure though

I'm back from holidays! So much to catch up on in this thread, good work people. :)

@ffs - Congrats on 99! Ric was super fun to follow along with, a very impressive character!

@T72on1 - Great progress with both characters! Some damn good finds too!

@PhineasB - Nice progress to you as well! I'm betting that golden Diadem drops in no time at all. :)

Also, a general welcome to all the new runners (great to see, best of luck all!), and great work to the rest who are still plugging along. :)

For now, a quick update on Stevesy.

--

After defeating Baal in normal, Stevesy went straight out into NM (though on /p5, since his weapons are a bit lacking). The merc is still pulling the weight, though he's starting to slow down a bit. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a weapon replacement for either the merc or Stevesy, but the first item worth mentioning was actually a Manald Heal in the Stony Field. Not very exciting, maybe, but it allows Stevesy to Frenzy without having to constantly pot blues, so it's progress anyways. The two pushed along until the dark wood gave them something to ACTUALLY be happy about. Stevesy didn't have a spare Sol, but a few Countess runs netted us a couple Amns to cube, a Lum for future use, a level gained, and finally:



It's actually only very slightly better damage-wise than his svage polearm, but the Meditation eliminated mana problems fully, and the other stats also help. Now I'll just hope for an exceptional base to drop at some point for a proper upgrade. The rest of the act was uneventful, and even though the merc was useless against Andy, the OW from Bloodrise got us through and she fell in short order.

A2 began by grabbing a Might merc, killing Radament, and moving along through the desert. Stevesy has gained a few more levels by now so things are going more smoothly, and the Staff and Amulet were collected without any issue. I was dreading the Arcane Sanctuary a bit, what with physically-resistant Ghosts floating around, and the general difficulties of following a merc through there, but it turns out it wasn't so bad after all:



Not necessarily the upgrade I was looking for, but I'll take it! The damage is good, and the slow really helps with some of the tougher bosses. Another Lum in the tombs, and Duriel soon bit it.

Act 3 was basically just follow-the-leader behind the merc. I kept no notes and my memory tells me nothing eventful happened. Meph dropped a Stormeye, but we won't use it.



--

I realized at this point I never really laid out my concrete plans for Stevesy other than a general "Frenzy barb and hopefully it works out", so I figured now was as good a time as any to detail my (still loose at this point) plans.

As stated, he will be a Frenzy barb. I really don't like WW (especially for HC), so that's that. The build itself will be very straightforward, as Frenzy barbs are.

Skills
Max – Frenzy, Battle Orders, Double Swing, Taunt, Sword Mastery
1 point in the standard issue skills that warrant it
The rest I'll try to squeeze into Find item/whatever I need for safety

The gear will also be pretty straightforward, assuming I can find it all.

Main hand: Grief PB
Off-hand: Death (eth Colossus Sword)

Arreat's Face
Enigma
Highlord's
SoE/Verdungos/Arachnid's Mesh (if it helps hit a teleport breakpoint)
LoH
Ravenfrost (unless I can Cham a Shako/Arreats at some point)/Rare ring (hopefully dual leech/AR)
Gore Riders

The thinking for the weapons is that Grief is just as good as it gets for main-hand, and Death provides a whole bunch of goodies like CB, DS, and the Glacial Spike proc which should help tremendously with safety (this being HC and all). To start I'll try and get a couple Oaths so that I can run the Council halfway decently, and then I'll probably just let the drops dictate what I do next.

Merc will be Might:
Andys
Fort
Reapers (hopefully)


That pretty much sums it up, but if anyone has some secret tips about gear I'm all ears. I haven't dug too deep on my plans yet, so I'm definitely open to suggestions! Happy running, all. :)

I know that there is a blizzballer 99er (possibly multiple, can't be bothered checking), which probably isn't drastically different.

@PhineasB that Death Spiral Ring is nice!

I am playing an untwinked bowazon that is at level 51 right now. Is it possible to add her to this or do I have to declare her before I begin? I am sort of confused about this lol.

As long as she is complete untwinked, you can add her in :)

In fact, if I remember correctly, Perkele was undeclared until level 99 :p
What do I do exactly? Just say hey I am in lol?

She is named Archie, is level 51 in act 1 NM, players 8 and hasn't died yet (softcore though, just my own goal to not die) and is completely untwinked.

Just tell us about her. Nothing too much, but we generally go for 2000-2500 words ;) Just add her to the table :)

Alright put some good time into Arkana this weekend. Got to 46 and am parked in a1 nm until I farm up an insight base, provided it doesn't take forever. Managed to cube a 4os crystal sword and make spirit with my only perfect amethyst! In retrospect I probably shouldn't have cubed the flawless amethysts and gone and found a gem shrine. But hopefully I'll find some more to roll some potential insight bases.

Also I have some combination goals for the character just to add some fun/challenge, and I thought I'd list them. And since she'll save the ancients as long as I can tolerate it, consider "end of questing" completing the Anya quest in a5 hell.

Goals
  • Small stash
  • Hybrid the whole time
  • Players8 until end of questing except tower lvl5 reruns
  • No hell mephy reruns
  • No hell pindle reruns
  • No LK
  • No larzuk quests until end of questing
Of course I reserve the right to go back on these if it gets absurd ;). I originally intended to do no respecs until after questing as well, but when at lvl 18 I accidentally put a second point into telekinesis instead of teleport, I scrapped that :p.

I would like to go meteorb the whole time, but if I find chaos is super tough, as it looks like @darkstarhub did, then I will plan to go to blizzard with a weak fireball (maybe boosted by infinity then). But I hate not having two elements, and I also hate having less than ~50 block on a sorc, so I'll plan to not compromise on those.

I want to try to farm up the "necessary" uniques from nm mephy and skip him and pindle in hell and get right to lvl 85's, even its a little bit less efficient. Just because I'm sick of farming mephy lately, I want to do most of my farming where tyrael's CAN drop, and I think it will be an interesting challenge.

For the no LK, I was inspired by a guy on reddit called ubeogesh. He refuses to do LK and still found enough runes for some crazy stuff, though of course with a ton of play time. I kinda want to do no LK for all my future characters and see how it goes, but I figured this sorc would be a good one to try it out on. She's not too high rune dependant, and if I get desperate I can farm cta and hoto from countess.

I am not used to small stash or untwinked players8. Haha have already died a couple of times. Whats the general space management strategy for small stash? Chipped gems for rune cubing early on, cubing up other gems, runes for intended runewords only? And then later I guess you use most of the space on a body recovery kit? Having fun so far!

That was quite the productive run @Bewitch ;)

@Luhkoh - nice progress. As for stash management, if you're not using GoMule, it can be a challenge early on. I'd go with chipped gems and savage polearm recipe stuff makings (using chipped gems for sockets and extra damage). But it's not really worth cubing up from chippies except for one or two types that you want to use for first pgems (likely amethyst and topaz) because you'll likely run out of space quickly. My experience from doing it up to Hell recently is that you'll lose more time trying to save low gems and runes by managing stash and backback space too tightly as opposed to just running for key pieces when you actually need them. Also, bases for runewords become key to grab and save when you get close (realistically) to being able to make them. Good luck!

Quick update for me because it's a biggie. Woke up early this am and couldn't fall back asleep, so I did some runs with Quinta. After picking up a pair of 49MF War Traveler's from Baal (+2 upgrade over her then-current), bam!

Thanks Achmel! :D [Edit: And thanks @Pb_pal for the encouragement and prediction of the drop coming soon!] Very nice roll for her purposes also:

She will have to lose her map to socket the Griffon's (last socket quest was reserved for this drop). But that's fine as she's done with LK and won't have to go back to Pits now that key S/U's are found. She can roll an even better WSK map when now that's her only consideration for a while.

She still could use a Sur/Ber to make CoH for the merc, but that will eventually fall from Baal runs or p8/p7 CS runs that she will likely do for 97-98. Mana will also become a challenge with loss of Shako, but she will likely drop War Travellers for Silk Weave, swap in FCR ring with +80 mana she just found, and equip Arachnid's. What's interesting is that with 2/9 caster amulet, she can hit 99 FCR break point :eek: I'll test out whether that's worth dropping Highlord's.

But I am leaving town Thursday through the weekend for a work trip and busy work the next couple days, so the full testing will likely have to wait til the following weekend.

Good luck to everyone else on great drops!
