Title: Legion of Champions Hardcore Challenges
Post by: MedeaFleecestealer on 19 November 2017, 10:01:49
6 Challenges for the Legion of Champions mod to get your teeth into - just in case you're finding the mod a little easy.  ;) For all these challenges characters are UNTWINKED unless stated otherwise.

Screenshots of boss kills and kills/deaths page required and no ESC-Quitting please!

NOTE: Until we actually get someone through these challenges with no deaths I'll accept up to 10 deaths (or 10 kills for the No Kills challenge) before a toon is taken off a leaderboard. Unless specified, a toon has no deaths (or kills for the "no kills" challenge).

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 these challenges.  The rule is play the game from the start of Normal right through to the end of Legendary.

1. NO KILLS, NO DEATHS
For this the only kills your character can make are the first 5 (4 if playing AE/R) in the first quest with the horse in the field. After that it has to be summons only who do the killing. And of course your character can't die either. Unless noted otherwise, a toon has only the initial 5 (4) kills.

Darn, not doing that well at the moment.  Been playing my Wanderer through the expansion and managed to get killed and today I played my "no kill" Evoker and managed to kill a skeleton and a descrated soldier.  :(

Okay, there I was playing my Assassin and suddenly I decided I wanted to start a new LoC toon to play into the expansion - don't ask me why, I don't know, I just did.  So wanting an army I opted for a Ranger.  So here's Piggy Sureshot, just reached L8 and got the second mastery and resting at the Spartan Camp.  She'll be doing the no deaths challenge.  :)

Tried another Ranger for the no kill challenge and got as far as L9 when, during game nightime, managed to inadvertently shoot a satyr.  Started again, transferred all the stuff over from the first Ranger and then again managed to inadvertently kill a skeleton at L5 while I was looking at my character's stats.  >:(  It's not my day today.

Update for Piggy.  She's up to L12 and at Megara Bluff.  Had fun running around in the Tegea cave trying to bring the spider boss down, but she managed it.  Now have 2 wolves and bogdwellers and heading for the falcon next followed by piglet.  Struggling with energy at the moment, she had a lot reserved so not much spare and something I've just equipped is causing her to have negative regen so she's losing it slowly as well.  Couldn't spot what it was on a quick look, but may need to find a relic/charm to boost her energy regen. 

Also a funny thing when I started the session.  She was at the Spartan War Camp and I got the Ancient of War side quest and then double checked that I'd got the main one too, only to find I had no quest info at all.  Talked to the guy in Sparta and got it, but a bit later when I went back to Helos to put stuff in the caravan I noticed the guards were blocking the road out of Helos.  I talked to the guy there and triggered the main quest there too, but when the shepherd arrived I was able to get the quest from him to do again.  It seems all my quest progress has been wiped from the quest log for some reason.  A bit strange since this is a new toon started in the game since the last update. Weird.  ???

The wolfs icons look pretty weird.I dont remember them to look like this in LOC.Did it got updated or something?
Title: Re: Legion of Champions Hardcore Challenges
Post by: MedeaFleecestealer on 15 March 2018, 19:39:15
I doubt it.  BG has been working on LoC v2 for quite a while so no recent updates to v1.0.  No idea if he changed the icons along the way though.  Maybe AER makes them look funny, the mod isn't designed for Ragnarok yet.

Post by: sauruz on 17 March 2018, 19:02:00
if i remenber correctly the only different between the icons is the background colour, in the mod its  bit grey/brown and in vailla its green

Well, what a dearth of heroes/bosses to destroy.  I've run Bog Terror from Zealand to the Southern Gate and only one boss to be found and didn't bother to take a picture since it went down so quickly.  So he's moved up to L47 from L46 and resting at the gate.

Did have a few problems: for some reason the Giselle quest doesn't complete in this mod.  Sheep disappeared when I "talked" to it, but didn't reappear when I spoke to the quest giver.  Also still haven't managed to find the first piece of the magic cauldron so that quest won't start on completion either.  I have all the other pieces, but not the first.  Finally the Lupine Claw quest - I only had a couple of pieces, not a whole one, but the quest completed anyway and didn't take the partial lupine claw out of the inventory.  ???

Dreams Afire is out of the no kill challenge.  Couldn't get the pets to come forward in the tomb area in the first part of the Athenian Passage so went running around to drag them in and in the ensuing chaos managed to kill two more foes, bringing her total up to 9.  Decided it was a lost cause so killed one more.  :(

May give it another try later.

Update for Sneaky Blader, he's reached the Temple of Hapshetsut (?).  Using a wireless mouse at the moment which doesn't help with staying alive!  Think I'll wait a few weeks and play again when I've got my new wired keyboard and mouse up and running. Oh the joys of switching over to a new PC. Also having fun trying to get around the changes to the old Paint on Win 10.  Don't like the new one so dug this out of where it hides on the PC, but sizing seems to be different. Or else it's the way it pulls screenshots in from TQAER?  ???

Well Act 5 is proving to be pretty awkward.  Bog Terror has several quests that don't seem to complete and now he's stuck outside Asgard.  The door won't open and I don't know why since it's been a while since I played the game plus I'm not that familiar with all the quests.  Anyone have any ideas?

Hey medea, i didnt test the mod on act 5, still playing on vanilla version, but if i remenber correctly that door shouldnt be open, i think.

Post by: MedeaFleecestealer on 15 May 2018, 10:53:46
In which case I have no idea where to go.  I've cleared the entire area and that seems to be the only way forward.  ???

Okay, after finding where the heck I was supposed to be going (thanks Tauceti) Bog Terror has made it through the rest of the expansion and is now in Epic Helos and L48! Yay!  ;D  Shame I got that one death, though he had a few close calls health-wise on his journey.  Will be interesting to see how he copes with Ragnarok next time around, assuming he makes it that far.  Not really too many bosses you can get screenshots of as they fade away into nothing for most of Act 5.

Yeah, there are few things that carried over like gear/weapons, but obviously no work on special LoC sets.  I ended up with a few side quests incomplete (Caldron for one) because it's been so long since I played I've forgotten where the quest givers are.  Downside of playtesting I guess.  Hopefully I'll get to run the expansion again before Forgotten Gods is out for testing, but as I'm back to cycling through my characters I'm not sure I'll even get that far with any of the others before then.  Cut back the playlist again, but apart from Bog Terror I've got one in Act IV, 4 in Act III and the rest are even further behind.  Also positioning some more GD toons for playtesting so that cuts down on TQAE playtime.

Update for Lady Storm, she's progressing down the Silk Road and has reached the Eastern Portal.  Not a lot of problems, except for the wolf boss BG put outside the ice cave for one of the side quests.  That was very hard for her as it has lightning bolt skill as well so she was getting hit by that before she could get around the corner to attack.  Managed it eventually though, and luckily it doesn't leave it's area so kiting works well.  She's L34 now.

New entrant for the "no kills, no deaths" challenge - Boyce Petmate, at the moment an L12 Ritualist.  2 Bogdwellers, 2 Nightterrors and just managed to get the Nymph out to join the team.  :)

Damn, Sneaky Blader had a death.  Didn't run when I should have.  That she-wolf boss BG put in in the Amdo region cave side quest is darn hard.  Got killed and nearly happened 2-3 more times before I finally managed to defeat her.  :(
