Update for Skinny Dipper.  He had a good run yesterday and made it all the way from the Spartan War Camp to the Athenian Passage.  Had one or two close calls, but survived.  Was lucky enough to get a Mastery shrine in the Fetid Lair at Tegea so had a third wolf from then on until just before he reached the Parnassus vendor where third wolf was lost during a hero fight.  He's now up to L15 and taking a well deserved rest.

New contestant: Wolfmaid - yet another Ritualist attempt. Yeah, I know, I'm a sucker, but what the heck.  ;)  Luckily she didn't run into Shadowmaw in his cave.  Not sure any Naked toon is going to be able to deal with him.  :-\  She's arrived at Delphi and is L13.

No one naked can handle Shadowmaw? Challenge accepted.

 Good luck in the Athenian Passage!

Good luck if you try 1cec0ld.  He's a nasty one to deal with when fully kitted out.  I hadn't seen him for a long while and wondered if the devs had taken him out in one of the game updates, but he popped back up when I was playing another toon so he is still ingame.  I'm just glad he's a random spawn and also optional.  ;D

I still remember I only saw him when I was running xmax. So, I killed 3 of him. And got no achievement.

Running mods disable achievements. If you killed 3 of them by running Xmax, wich is a mod, you obviously got no achievement.

Or maybe you reached the Egypt act before killing them?

Shadowmaw hangs out in the cave in the Phocian Swamp so a long way from Egypt and Act 2.  You haven't even reached Delphi yet.  He makes Polyphemus seem easy peasy.  :o

What toon were you playing that had to tackle 3 of him 1cec0ld?

Oh, it was certainly the mod issue. I knew exactly what was going to happen, I'm just bitter about it being my only encounter with him lol

I was using some twinked EBD focused build, so I was able to hit and run with Distortion Wave and burn him/them en masse

OOOOOOK. After so many months, and discussing challenges on Discord, I was motivated to jump back in.
Tried a character, died to a centaur. That sad soul will remain unnamed.

Now, meet Insanity, a (currently) pure Rogue, using traps as main damage, and flashpowder+mandrake+flurry of knives to spread confusion everywhere.
Got SUUUUPER lucky with a Staff of Magi from the pile of dead bodies near Hippius, kept using that until I maxed Rapid Construction, now just toting a Beastcallers elemental bonus staff. Self found so far, but if I don't find a puppetmaster's staff soon i might change that. Energy regen is a pain.
Level 27 in the Parthian Highlands, still going strong.

and it wont let me attach any more than my last 5 images xD


Edit: I just noticed that I killed all of 6 monsters in all of Egypt. Wow.

Welcome back to the challenges 1cec0ld.  Nice to have someone else join me.  :)  I'll add Insanity to the leaderboard.

Could I ask you to not attach images please?  Unfortunately doing this increases our bandwidth use and we could go over our limit incurring extra costs.  Something like Dropbox or Imgur should do the trick.

My mistake, won't happen again. I also replied there, trying to be helpful in my own way.

Yes, I am - or will be once I've finished playtesting on Grim Dawn's new expansion.  I've been playing that exclusively since August, but hope to get back into TQAE pretty soon.  I miss it!

Okay, so my first attempt at this challenge is going to be with an Evoker. Meet Mona (after her defeating the shaman):


The beginning was a bit tough because I only had points in Earth mastery and nothing else but a few staff attacks per enemy did the trick. Nessus was not a huge problem:


For Polyphemus I finally had Eruption, that was a long wait but definitely worth it to get it as early as possible. With it he was really easy:



Of course I met Shadowmaw on my first attempt:


He was tough but I managed to dodge his attacks a lot better this time around and with my health pool and Stone Form there was not a lot he could do:

Welcome to the forum and to the challenge Zoot.  :)

I've added Mona to the leaderboard, but can you let me know which version of the game you're playing (TIQT, TQAE or TQAER) and whether you're twinking your character with items from TQVault.
