Well done Tauceti.  That moves you almost to the top of the leaderboard.  :)  Yeah, Barmanu's always difficult to deal with, he's at the wrong angle to see him for a start plus he can drop those snow meteors on you without him being in view.  Best thing to do is run back to the cave entrance and wait there for everything to stop since his leash is quite short, he doesn't come after you and most meteors won't bounce that far.  Still worth watching them though just in case, I have been hit by one when standing in that area in the past and died from it.

And blew it with Valdis.  Tried going after the healing Gorgon Sisters first to get them out of the way and I assume got stunned (or stuck not sure) and then just watched the health bar expire without being able to do anything about it.  So he's out of the challenge at L19.  Should have stuck with patience and a bow.  Final kill count: 11,529.

Um, and I'm not that good at kiting such things.  Certainly with 9 of them to deal with rushing in wasn't a good idea.

Better progress with Hyone, my Haruspex.  She's been to Chang'an, up to the Jade Palace and back to Chang'an again.  Some Djinn heroes got close to killing her, her health bar was shrinking and I was trying to hit the health potion button, wondering why nothing was happening (duh! no potions toon remember!), then switched the hotkey bar over and managed to switch off Herbal Remedy and Trance of Convalescence as well.  :o  Had to retreat to gain some health again before bringing the last Djinn down.  Realised my idiotic mistake, fired everything back up again and carried on.

Never realised what a dearth of heroes there are that you can take screenshots of in that area.  Bandari (no), Bull heroes (no) so I've just done a couple showing that the main quest has updated.  Kill count: 37,728.





Also, anyone managed to do the Three Sisters side quest with this version of Xmax?  Iirc over on TQ.net there was mention that the heroes for that don't spawn so not worth picking the quest up.  I tried it a couple of times, but they didn't spawn for me so I moved on.

It seems Medea that you, Gascorun and I, have differences in Xmax version. The 3 sisters spawn x3 in my Xmax version but only one eye is  left contrary to the the pic of Gascorun where 3 eyes are left. Therefore i took a pic at the beginning of the fight and at the end. Actually this is not the good way because i wanted to do the same for 3x Cerberus since there is no remnants. But the time needed to pull and printscreen (i m not quick  ;D) and my life was already near mid-level.

Gustav is now 48 resting at Elyseum

Well done Tauceti.  Updated.  :)

No, it's not the Grey Sisters quest I'm talking about, but the Three Sisters one you pick up on mountain heading for the Jade Palace.  To rescue the third sister you have to defeat the big panther bosses and they don't seem to spawn in this version of Xmax.  Did you manage to do this quest?

Yeah, I think I'm going to have to add it to the others where you need to do it in normal.  :(

All was going well, towards the last corridor leading finally to Hades. I was already thinking about how Gustav would handle with Hades.
But.. in the last bunch of gigantes, was hiding a Dactyl. Two shots at once, no more, and Gustav was dead without any chance to retreat to the stairs.
Too bad, i came back, took my time and got him down.

But that's the golden rule for hardcore: no room for error !
Final kill count: 63730 - lvl 50.

Hello again

Badboy is still alive, but I've started another hero because i love earth and now i believe i control rune mastery better, so....

Naiara is a stonespeaker! I want to play her melee, and I'll try to make RoF works for this build (if not, maybe I'll change to throwing weapons)
She is rhakotis now, easy act1, excepting the minotaurs

Will try to play this in the next couple of games. Haven't played TQ for challenges lately.
Mostly on, just 2-3 hours daily of repetitive farming for AE:R Legendaries.

Damn on the Legendary Cerberus death @MedeaFleecestealer that's a pretty bad spot to die. Did you kite at gate or did you go in balls-deep in the arena?

@Tauceti that quest is just like other droppable quest items. Sometimes you get 3 sometimes you get 1.

Burnt out on Tekken 7 and LoL and can't rank up anymore, so will be playing more of TQ.

gasconron, it was my own fault, I was a bit impatient.  The 3 of them wiped out my pets a few times so I was trying to deal with them by standing just inside the door and potshoting them with a bow, but made the mistake of going too far inside and the door closed behind me.  I got penned aginst the door by all 3 and died.
