The Yellows Only Hardcore Challenge
« on: 19 November 2017, 09:51:50 »
Okay, back in the TQIT days I started this challenge because I had lots of +1 and +2 mastery items in my Vault. You know them, Rogue Swords (+1 to all Rogue skills), Warrior clubs (+1 to Warfare skills), etc, and I never got to play with them. They're not equippable until L12 and I'd usually moved on to green items by that point. So I wanted to try a couple of toons out to see how far they could get in the game using yellow items only.

So the rules are simple:

Yellow items only including jewellery - no other colours allowed except grey/white ones for the early levels.
Vault can be used if you want, just let me know so I can note the toon is twinked.
TQDefiler for people playing TQIT: only things like disable Zeus, potion stacking, freeze time of day, show hidden prefix/suffix, show all pet damage and the Slow Cast and RNG fixes.
Relics/Charms/Artifacts can be used - however scrolls can't.
Screenshots of boss kills required.
It's Hardcore - if your character dies, that's it. No ESQ-QUIT please.

If you want to try this with Xmax or any other mods that's fine, just let me know so I can put it on the leaderboard. (Legion of Champions Yellows Only players will be listed under its own challenge section for that mod - see the Legion of Champions Challenges thread)

Build guides using TitanCalc or the AE version of it may be useful to others who want to check out any successful ones.  Feel free to join in the fun.

NOTE: AE after a character's class denotes they're being played in the Anniversary Edition of the game, AER they're played using the Ragnarök expansion.
NOTE: Anniversary Edition Ragnarök expansion - Accomplished Heroes are not eligible for this challenge.  The rule is play the game from the start of Normal right through to the end of Legendary.

Darn it, Esprit Tempest is out of the challenge.  I saw a new hero down in the cave in the Canyon of Isis and was so busy trying to get a screenshot I didn't realise she was getting sprayed by a lot of poison from the hero.  Got the shot, but she expired before I could get a potion down her.

Can't give up on this since it was my idea in the first place so here's my third Illusionist - very originally named Aritha3. ;) Forgot to take a screenshot of the satyr kill so had to go back - which is why she's L6.

Update for Aritha3, she's reached the Halcyon Coast and is up to L11.  Was lucky enough to get a Mastery shrine right at the start of the session and the wolves stayed alive the whole playtime.  ;D

Update for Aritha3.  She's reached the Athenian Passage (aka Medea' Graveyard) and is up to L15.  No real problems so far and now she's equipped with a Wanderer's staff and necklace she has her third wolf friend to help out.  :)

Foolish, foolish idiot.  Shouldn't have tried it.  Went back to try and deal with Shadowmaw and Todd has paid the price.  He's dead to that beast and out of the challenge.  :( Only got to L13.
