So now after being away from d2 for few months I've decided to take another shot at beating the game! My previous attempts both failed, first The Barbarian and then The Amazon. Both in same area aswell (Barb in nm Tower act1 and Amazon in Tower act1 in hell) :wacko:
I decided to give the Assassin a shot mainly because I never really played with assassins. I had a trapper few years ago but that's pretty much it. Thinking about going kick/trap (mostly kick/DS I suppose).

As for the challenge, it's basically for myself (trying to beat the game in single player, full time /p8 without mods/hacks/tweaking).

But to make it a bit more interesting I'll give 20 fg to the one who guesses where I'm going to die! Leave difficulty + act + area. For example: Nm, act1, The tower :bonk:
Only one guess per user. You can change your guess unless I've already passed the place you originally guessed. Will stop taking guesses once/if I defeat normal Baal.

I will be uploading pics of my progress (for my own fun and for public humilitation) :P


Here we go!

Btw, tips and hints are welcome! :)

Should have little/no difficulty clearing Normal.

I'd recommend moving closer to full trap when going through NM and Hell though. It's really nice to be able to shoot your traps around hallway and inside of corridors before you're in there (like the tower :P). Let the traps take out the majority of them.

Unfortunately by the time you start to push hell you'll be running in to immunities so you may end up having to run NM a few times to get your gear up and probably respec again to something a bit easier to work with. Fire and Cold immunes are rampant all through A1, I don't remember much about Lightning though.

My bet is going to be... A3 Durance or Travincal, probably NM. Stygian doll -.-.
