Great work Clersius. You seem to have mastered a Zy-El Barbarian very quickly. :)

I may allow starting Chapter 5 but it will be on the understanding that the rules for Chapter 6 (Nightmare Act 1) will not be posted in advance as I have not completed them yet. I am also still working out the details for another couple of "side quests" for Act 5 itself. So if everyone is happy with this, then you may begin Act 5. Please allow a few days for people to respond before I make an official announcement and you start playing Chapter 5.

It's easy to do when the class is so much fun to play!

Hmmmm I am fond of the format that your tourney has taken so far, and I would rather wait around hopping from foot to foot than have you break the format. I am eager to begin, but there are plenty of things that I can do while you get the rules for Chapter Six sorted, as well as the additional Chapter Five side quests. No hurry, sir, despite my comments in my previous post. :D

Please don't open Chapter Five until everything is properly ready for it to be opened.

Don't start Chapter 5 until the rules for Chapter 6 are finalized. I still gotta beat this chapter as well.

School is fine. But the real problem I have is I got back into Doom using Skulltag.

I am proud of my outcome, especially when my only MF was from 2 items and a Master Mega CHOM.

With the subquest out of the way, I am now finished with Chapter 4. It was a war between me and the forces of hell and Diablo. If it was like Doom, I would have just BFGed my way through them. But as a Sorceress, the strategy had to be developed off the following monster spawns:
  • Venom Drakes
  • Stone Ghouls and Masakari
  • Venom Lords
  • Oblivion Knights and Doom Knights
  • Storm Casters
  • Mithril Knights
  • Medusa
The strategy: 2 spells and hit and run. The spells are Glacial Spike for freezing (lasts 19 seconds) then spam Hydra to destroy them all.

Sorry for the triple post, I had a slipup with the 2nd one and needed more picture slots for the 3rd.

Are you sure that haul was from "Seal Mobs" only? If so, it is an incredible score. An average of 1 unique, 3 rares and 0.6 set items per. Seal Mob 8-O .

You didn't make the same mistake as I did and count all drops? I started doing that which gave me 11 rares and 2 set items but after clarifying the rules with Metro I could only count items from Seal Mobs which gave me my paltry single rare flamberge. Clersius also only counted items dropped from the Seal Mobs, Lord de Seis etc.

Wait *looks at rules again*. Metro didn't specify properly according to rules AND aim that you only had to get the items from the Seal mobs, aside from the fact we had to decipher on our own that the Seal areas had to be cleared. The 18/3/5 was the outcome of doing the entire thing. But this is why I made 100% sure the text for Chapter 5 was set properly.

Also, it's strange he would make a tiny quest like that.

But I'll fix it. I can 100% assure you it was a Manald Heal ring, the Sigons and a Civerbs Ammy and 1 rare I got from those mobs.
Infector's group had the Sigons
Lord's group dropped the Manald Heal and the rare
Chaos' group dropped the last set.

But even with the corrections, I still got the highest EM! :D

Thanks. It wasn't too bad. The biggest threat was a trio of Champion Venom Drakes. Luckily, one of them was Ghostly, so doing hit and runs with hydras and slow made it easy.

Although you are currently in the lead with points, I will enjoy keeping my Evolution Modifier the highest of them all. If anyone beats that, then I will cry :cry:

Damn, the others should catch up. So many of them are still in Chapter 1 & 2.

Only Billy is currently actively playing and he doesn't have the time to play as much as the rest of us. I guess I should seriously start doing something about the next set of rules.

Incidentally, congratulations on that EM. Even with the stricter rules you "whooped us good" :)

That's how I roll. I don't attempt the sidequests until I know I can whip you guys good ;).

Winning for me is the icing on the cake, but I will make sure that NOBODY! beats my EM!
