Oh, i am in ! it's time to test a class i wouldn't take in xmax challenge: the stonespeaker.

The stonespeaker should be a little less squishy than its alterego the thunderer thanks to its shield ability, we shall see  ::)
I especially hope that rune weapon and earth enchantment will synergize well.

Edit: its name Strombolitto.

great. it's more fun if you're not alone. so i promise i won't leave you hanging. i promise to enter a character

honestly, i saw someone do this on twitch before. so it's very much doable... but it's easier said than done. and unless you have actually done it, you don't have anything to say you have beaten the game in its purest form

congratz to that person i can't remember his name though
i are TQ titans
i are many people

I didn't know about sieg hart, but a quick search on the net gave me the answer. It seems that it fits well with an elementalist !

On the other side, Strombolitto died unexpectandly at lvl 18.
I'll think about a new toon, not sure that it will be a stonespeaker though.
Anyhow, having less time available  now, the toon will evolve slowly.

Finally, i leveled an evoker, which is close to the stonespeaker in the playstyle except that Psionic touch will take the place of Rune weapon.
This should allow Strombolitta to level at a safer distance with a staff instead of short ranged weapon.

The ideal weapon would be the MI prospector rod, easy to farm but it's a long way to go up to act 5.

Here is the progress for Act I
Spoiler for Hiden:



No farm session except for specific charms (in caves) to achieve the artifact.

Edit:
No problem Bote, take care of you.

Acts II & III

Spoiler for Hiden:


It looks like Strombolitta will be an hybrid char: a mixed between str and int and remaining attributes points go on health.
