Vaylon is through Act I Normal! Finished at level 22, with a lot of farming done. Got some decent gear so far, some Stonebinders, and on to Act II. Will likely use Soul Drain to carry me through the base game with Outsider for bosses, and then re-perk to be more of a petmaster when Iíve got better pet gear and more perk points available.

But so far so good! Only Blue item to drop that hurt to pass over was a Necromancerís Staff, but I just chucked it straight in the transfer section, bound for the bank.

Vaylon crushes Act II! I did a tonne of farming here, firstly on the Dark Spirit Conduit for XP, then Sandqueen Masika for a formula I need down the line for the Talisman of the Jade Emperor artefact (Song of the Serpent).

The formula took a long time to drop, so I’m pretty overlevelled right now. Need to do some gear shopping when I reach Chang’an for better gear, as I’m still running a Totemic staff. But thankfully all the farming I needed to do on Normal is done now, so I can take my time and enjoy the rest of the difficulty farming-free.

Anyway, photo proof here: https://imgur.com/a/xmzposs

Ended up breezing through Act III as I didn't need to farm anything. The enemies are definitely starting to catch up to the Act II levelling - Typhon was just a kite-job and most of the Atlantis bosses have been too.

Did my usual - get to Styx, turn to Atlantis. Current progress is:

Kalimon / Vaylon / Soothsayer / Level 42 / Outer Atlantis / AER/A / Self-found, Green items only

(Atlantis and Hades to come when I reach Act V)

And just like that the challenge comes to an end  :( and in the stupidest way too.

In the Tower of Judgment, I kill Cerberus and make it to Elysium. Easy. Start talking to my partner and put the phone down before tapping the rebirth fountain, and the game logs out. Fine, Iíll just kill Cerberus again, no big deal.

Nope. An inch of my toe was touching the floor poison cracks and I got melted. RIP Vaylon. First death in several days worth of TQ but hell it stings. Gonna need to take a break as I really canít face Helos again right now haha

Haha yeah it’s really annoying, gonna have nightmares about forgetting rebirth fountains now lol.

I’m more frustrated about the self-found thing - I really wanted to get one self-found char over the line, just to say that I could, but I really, really don’t want to redo all the hours I spent at Arachne/Dark Spirit Conduit/Sandqueen Masika. I want to try to up the ante as I feel that with 3 characters clearing the challenge I’ve proven I can beat the game twinked now, but I just don’t want to repeat the hours I’d already spent grinding. We’ll see.

Plus i’m convinced now that Nature is a curse for me - every time I make a Nature deathless it dies lmao. The petmancer approach just felt terrible, think I was making myself too weak to try to buff the wolves and needed to focus more on survivability
