Great job, medea! Which class did you have the most fun with?

Um, been a while, but I'd say probably the Magician, the Bone Charmer and Spellbinder.  The Magician was done following Fozzie's Bladeflinger guide, the Bone Charmer's Irma2's.  For the Spellbinder iirc I did him using only Radiant/Dazzling/Shining/Lustrous items - another crazy build idea.  :)  Deaths were 34, 32 and 37 respectively, but I could probably have done better if I'd kited more than I usually do. Certainly there were several times when the Magician should have kited, didn't and died as a result.

It depends also on the gear you had at that time. My 1st toon in vanilla TQ was a brigand and finished the game with 88 deaths  ;D
However Brigand remains the class that i love much, even if squishy.

What was the gameplay ? I can't see it

My Conquerors were my first toons to reach end of game.  The first time was when I was learning to play, the second one I ran as my pathfinder/loot getter when I got a new PC and installed the game fresh.  Both ended up with 60+ deaths - Zorn (the 2nd) had 61. Since both were first toons, they were self found, but the others I'd already got most of the gear in the Vault.

Spellbinder idea was to pile on the damage to demons iirc.  Those types of armour give strength, armour and damage to demons - changed a bit in the AE version I think looking at the stuff in the vault, but it's pretty close.  Mostly green items obviously, but had a few uniques equipped as well.  Yes, it made dealing with demons pretty easy, but some other foes took a long while to deal with.

My very very first toon, from before immortal throne, was a spellbreaker (i think? Warfare and spirit) anyway, and i had no idea what i was doing, so i spent my AP evenly across all 5 stats :))) plus not to mention this was before i knew about the defiler (if it even existed back then) and my drops were so bad that by the time i got to typhon i only had one epic sword, everything else was yellow...needless to say that typhon handed my ass to me time and time again, i even think back then those statues around him made him impossible for me to beat ;D so my toon got deleted, ah well, live and learn :)

Yeah, I never encountered those since, although I started off in Titan Quest, I finally read the manual/instructions and realised that Immortal Throne was TQ plus the add-on and not something completely separate so I imported my toons into IT long before I got that far into the game.  I do remember jumping out of my chair and dancing around the room when I did finally bring Typhon down for the first time.  :))

Oh, i already see this being a problem..the guide says the class is heavily gear dependent :/ and it's a caster! 😢

Yes, it is and of course some of the gear may have changed in AE.  It's a knife spammer hence the name Bladeflinger.

Unfortunately i dont have any gear yet...perhaps i should make a 'safe' toon like the conqueror but it sounds like a boring class.

Also, never tried a caster before and am still reluctant to try one..dont know why though, i guess i just like a melee approach or a bow :)

Yeah, I get it.  I had most of the gear in my Vault collection when I played it so that wasn't a problem for me.

I went with Conqueror first because when I was learning I wanted what looked like the strongest class to me.  And though I love Defense as a mastery, most of my toons are petmancers, casters or bow users. I do have some melee ones, but somehow just don't enjoy them as much as attacking from range.  You could try a Slayer (Hunting/Warfare) or Warden (Hunting/Defense) and that way you get the best of both: ranged for attack and melee if you need close up.  A lot of my melee toons end up using a bow a lot of the time anyway, even if I don't have Hunting as one of the masteries.  My Guardian who I played through into Act 4 Epic in Xmax HC challenge used a bow almost exclusively.

Yeah, defense and hunting are my favorite masteries, but i was hoping of trying something other than hunting for my second toon as i already have a bone charmer...ah, decisions decisions :))

Thanks medea!
