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

Ok, I lied. After finishing my OBP tournament sets, I said that I was about to take a small break. I didn't. :p

I'm leveling my 99er Frenzy barb in at p8 in the Pit. The point was to gain a bit of xp while trying to find another Phaseblade to make another Grief (already had the runes for it). I found one after about three hours and punched 5 holes into it. Nice.

Then, I rolled it :

Bear in mind that I already got one Grief that rolled 40ias/396 dmg. That's just insane. This untwinked barb now got two virtually perfect Griefs. I'm just... Wow.

Yeah, also, the Pits got me a random Vex. Nice.

Anyway, gonna keep running this character for the day. That lucky b******.

Those rolls are ridiculous! Congrats!

I was going to run one of my characters today, and I'm still considering wind druid, pnecro, and trapper. We don't have an untwinked windy yet, so some style points there, and whatever I do, I was hoping to level through p8 area running, not boss runs till I absolutely have to. Still playing around, haven't sunken any significant time into them yet. Maybe I'll take down D in hell with all three and do some pit or AT runs to see you they feel.

@testyfish I'll keep you company with Windy :) Septimus is lvl 91 and 1 hr left in the OBP tourney set. Then it will be back to LK for Enigma, and then some Pit runs before transitioning to Baal in earnest. He's a long-term project at this point . . . .

Yeah anything I do will be a long term project. Unless I go for an untwinked 99er using charge or bash, I doubt I'll be the first for anything.

That said, I feel like I have a mild irritation with the traps on assassin. I like being able to have a bit more control over my damage skills. Pnecro has control, but there's just something about the build that feels slow if you don't have Uber gear.

Windy has enough neat things going for it that I'm intrigued. Cyclone armor and oak sage make for a lot of safety. Phys is not a bad damage type for a primary, and I have a soft spot for creepers. I think my biggest concern with the build is how quickly ranged phys damage can make things hairy. I guess that's true of every build except bone Necro, Something with DV, or Assassins with CoS. I think I like the flavor of druid best though, so that's something.

So in the 99'er top finished / questing for HC we have :

Druid 99
Barb 95
Pala 94
Sorc 94

So I'm going to go out on a leaf here and try one of the other 3 classes. I don't think it's reasonable to do a 99 necro single player. I like both zon and assassin almost equally. I'm going to do a best of 5 vote for what they'd rather see as a HC 99er and you have two choices.

Let me know what you think and that's the direction I'll go. :) Until I get my 5 votes I'm going to start a new sorc.

@Disposition I would vote for making any char and lvling it up to like 97 before you do any UT99er stuff especially in HC ^^ I literally know 1 person that came out of nowhere and did something worth mentioning in this thread and it was me XD For sure there were other people that lvled up their chars just like that, but i just don't know about them. I personally think there is a pretty low chance that you will get this char to the high lvl but if you ask for my opinion, i would vote for assassin, cause it's really cool and i would really like to make one myself. On the other hand amazon should be easier i guess.

@Disposition it seems to me that you are starting new projects over and over again. One week it was all about assassin, next week all about barb etc. In order to get to 99 you need some serious commitment, especially in HC.
I am on the same page as ResTTe here, try first to take ANY class untwinked HC to say 95-97 and then decide if you think it is worth pushing further.

Assassin is a solid choice though, not so fast but should be pretty safe.

I think @Bewitch and @Yng weren't "SPFers" either before they joined this either, if that’s what you mean. ;) As for Barbs specifically, the most impressive remains Perkele IMO. It’s easy to forget the first 99er in this thread was an untwinked vanilla Barb, no muling, no RWM, spending his days switching between Zod'ed eth Tomby and two eBotDs. :eek: In terms of craziest achievements in this thread, I'd put him as solid #2 (behind @Pb_pal's Klaus, that dude is clearly #1 in my view).

That being said, @Disposition don't take this the wrong way but it's kinda true you often mentioned making all kinds of HC 99ers. Like others have said, this is a long-term project (you're not even half way there before 97 or so). I tend to agree it might be an idea to first Pat/Mat a character at least... That's a negligible portion of the whole time investment after all, and if you do want to make it to 99, it will give you an idea whether you like playing them or not, because if you don't chances are you won't finish them.

@ffs Yeah, i wasn't bragging at all. I just didn't know anyone else ^^ What Perkele did is impressive, but how long did it take him to get this barb to 99? I think he spent a lot of time playing him.

I guess it is the case for any 99er anyway - not counting HC failures on the path of a 99er! :p

@ResTTe No idea, but I can't imagine it was fast by any modern 99er standards. :) Just gearing up must have taken ages. Imagine farming two Zods without RWM alone. I feel nauseous just thinking about hitting Trav with neither Grief, nor BotD, nor even Oath :D..

There’s a guy Indrek on twitch that did sub 300 hour HC Sorc with no RWM also.
And no extentend stash either. I followed his streams quite close back then. Man it hurt so much watching him selling high runes for gold just because he had no use and room for them ^^.
It was his 2nd attempt also btw, think he deeded his first attempt at clvl 97 getting block-locked at some nasty fana-pack. He did not even S&E since that would have been against his own rules (though he had like 2 seconds to do so!)

Indrek is also a world class speedrunner. I can really recommend checking him out :)

To me spending ~300 hours on 1 char within a year is not that spectacular. It is less than 1 hour per day. Perkele spend way more time than that, considering the fact that he was not using RWM and got 2 zod runes and some other dope items. He did it first when the knowledge wasn't that great, so it is kind of impressive. On the other hand if that was his main char and he just played it for so long is it really that spectacular? It is only about the dedication which don't have that high value to me, cause i just do what i have to do and spending a lot of time during the process is nothing uncommon ^^ On the other hand... Is there really anything more than just dedication if you go for UU99er? XD It does not require more skill than normal playing. This is why i like to optimize the stuff i do time-wise. It is much more interesting that way imo, cause it requires some skill to get to a certain point.

What Indrek does can be impressive too, but you have to remember that the way he plays is the only way he ever played, so it it totally normal to him to not play with mods. I once saw a streamer playing UT P8 only HC java. Damn it was painful to watch him drops like 10 items just to cube up a few gems so he has free space to stash his items and then picking those items one by one just to put them in his stash... That was hilarious and also a moment when i realised it is not worth it at all to play without an extended stash ^^

I think all UT99ers are impressive :) Being lucky getting the runes etc is also a factor, and it is kinda hard to by time spent alone to say that something was impressive or not. And everyone plays for different reasons and what not, its just a game ^^
