I also noticed that some of the chimeras still die in one shot and some of them die without giving any experience, so there is still something buggy going on there.

PS. I always do suicides at players 127 except when I play necro.
Are you confusing experience with monster life? There is no experience display that would be affected by battle progress. The life display hiccup is a visual bug which should have no effect on their actual wounding status.

The fix I mentioned earlier does mean under certain circumstances a monster will have (much) less experience than usual. It was necessary because before v4.3 you would get experience rollover and crash the game. When in an area where that happens, try different settings for Players X. After a few games you should have an idea what settings for which areas yield best results. Al-T's extensive work on describing effects of different Players X for the various suicide levels would be a good model.

Expect no more one-hit kills in v4.4, as I found the situation that still allowed a few to slip by.

It is still going on.

I think I will start a new one in the new year. I am thinking of a septathlon. You can share only among the seven classes in the septathlon. All characters must be in the same act and difficulty. It will depend on who wants to participate.

Count me in Hans :) .

:idea: Just some suggestions --- as we have 10K levels in ZyEl, how about having competitions within competitions, such as first to certain levels (e.g. 100, 500, 1K) or first to create certain items (e.g. ZyEls Requiem or Major CHoM) :?: The results could then be posted on the Wiki with the various winners immortalised forever.

Good luck in your new job Hans :)

Hi Hans,

So how does the septathlon work as far as characters dying :?:

Can you start another character in the same class or is it just dead forever :?:

Either is fine with me....just looking to clarify.

I have not yet decided if it would be dead or not. It will depend on how the testing goes. I am leaning that the character is dead and must continue with the remaining characters. When all the characters are dead a new team would be created.

Don't worry too much about completing Act5 Hell in a hurry as it might spoil your enjoyment of the mod and I can help you to get around not having a softcore matriarch/patriarch if you haven't got one by the time the tournament starts. If you haven't got one by then, please PM me to let me know and I will help.

Good luck and happy ZyElling :)

You only need to defeat Baal in normal to open up hardcore.

The Septathlon has started and it will last until we have a winner. We will be following the rules that Phlebiac posted in this thread viewtopic.php?t=52445

I recommend you post in that thread or the Wiki. I will be adding a section to the HC tourney thread for that particular tourney. When that is up you can then post there as well. I will be adding special bonuses or achievements for the first to achieve something.

[edit]
I added the tourney to the wiki.
Here is the link for the tourney: http://zyel.wikispaces.com/Septathlon
