Hi! After over 3 years I am back to continue the challenge :D No idea for how long tho xd I didn't expect to survive after such a break but somehow managed to finish Hades.

I started before Atlantis existed so will continue without doing Atlantis. Found some better weapon and helmet but my armor needs to be upgraded immediately. I have got it from a normal Hades fight xD I still don't know Ragnarok anywhere near as well as the rest of the game so there is a risk of dying to some random enemy.

Good luck and have fun with it Overnight. May we meet in the leader board one day. Same for you Medea :D.

 I also plan on coming back....soon. Right now I am in my Grim dawn phase :)). It's funny how i jump between gd and tq just because i need to change the colour pallet, not the game.

Yeah, I tend to jump between the 2 depending on what I feel like playing on the day.  Need to get back into the challenge as well, been a while since I did any of my characters for it.  But been playtesting Crate's new town builder so most of my gaming time is going into that atm.  ;D

Hi! I rushed through Ragnarok, literally just ignored most of enemies on the way. Getting maybe 1 level while spending many hours luring everything to kill and not even getting any useful items was not worth my time. I will have to farm a lot in legendary anyway, still stuck with epic armor from normal. It was also almost unplaybale with xmax, especially with human enemies or trolls that caused massive fps drops, every other enemy was much better. I was forced to change graphics to low in the end anyway. Still there were random crashes and many times I quit game it crashed what did not happen in previous acts but I expected it to be like that.

The bosses were not really difficult but it was just hit and run using 2 skills so took some time. Only for Surtr I prepared other equipment, thrown weapon cause I would probably die when hit by all of them at once in the second phase and got as much hp as I could on items that did not give me any good stats for this fight.

Hi! I have just finished Greece. Spent some time farming bosses and finally got rid of my old armor, found a new shield and Stonebinder's Cuffs. Actually didn't take screenshots of Satyr mage and Nessus, I don't know if it is even possible to die to them at this point anyway, but can go back and get them if needed. Also hope Hydra isn't required to do this challenge, I can't fight it on xmax, I can lure and kill one but everytime when I approach the rest they instantly cast spells and game goes into 1 fps mode permanently. For some reason Hydra isn't able to kill lvl 1 Nightmare no matter what so it isn't hard to fight them anyway.

I have reached the kill minimum so I don't bother killing anything too much, I have got all skills I need and few points into str or dex won't change anything. I could boost my health a bit but I can't force myself to waste points like that. I just keep changing my eq for every boss to max out resistances and hope it will be enough.

No, not needed to go back and do the satyr and Nessus again.

Well done and that takes you to the top of the leaderboard.

Good job! Don't forget to check the vendors from time to time. They often hold treasures.

As for the hydra, i also had a lot of problems with it on my previous hunter. My summoner only killed it because of pets. I tried to fight it outside of my range of view. So, if you ask me, it's cool if you skip it. It's not your fault, it's a technical limitation of the game

I spent a lot on eq from vendors already, need to farm some gold actually. I bought a helmet for 15kk to use it once vs Minotaur Lord just because it had way more armor than my helmet that wasn't useful in that fight. Yesterday I fought Scarabeus and remembering that their posion deals really huge damage I bought an amulet with high poison resistance because I had only about 17%. Went to fight them and almost died to one, if two hit me at once it would probably be instadeath, turned out I forgot to change amulet and did it in the middle of the fight and then it went without problems :D

Hi! Egypt oficially finished. Spent few days just farming Aktaios. Got a lot of legendary items, the best ones being Myrmidon's Pendant, Apollo's Will and Conqueror's Braces. Also got few Pendants of Immortal Rage but won't use them here.

I am thinking of creating Marduk's Tablet of Destiny, actually by the fact I already have almost all components ready I can tell I was thinking about it few years ago :D It isnt' particularly strong, it is just safe passive but it is all I need for this run. I lack only Symbol of the Polymath and it starts dropping in Orient so I hope to get it soon.
