ThrowerYellow is done with Epic Atlantis: now back to Rhodes at level 61.
The later part of Epic Atlantis seemed easier than the earlier part, probably because the weakest part of my toon is vs strong physical damage dealers.

Thanks Medea :)

Looks like this is working very well for you.  Cross fingers you get all the way to end of Legendary.   :)

ThrowerYellow is now level 66 in the city of Athens.

Thanks Medea. Now comes the slow part though, it will take a lot of time to farm gears and enchants.

Yeah, well, that's where twinking comes in handy if you have stuff in your Vault.   ;)

The enchant farming is not too bad, I mainly use default completion bonus to make it faster, plus you gain XP for your toon. Gear farming (shop farming) is probably more time consuming. To succeed in this challenge, the yellow gears need to be heavily optimized.

Like yesterday, with ThrowerYellow, I farmed the Hydra for 1+ hour and I already got all the enchants I need from him (Achilles and Dionysus sets). I also spent 1+ hour to farm the shops for gears and I didn't get any new armor gears (still using most of them from epic Rhodes), only some new ring/amulet.

I'll probably do the main gear shop farming in legendary Rhodes though.

Anyway, this is also an interesting thing about this challenge -- find the best way to optimize your gears. And with yellow gears, there are more ways to optimize them than with using non-restricted gears.

ThrowerYellow is done with Act 1 Legendary: now level 66 in Rhakotis.

Hardest boss in Act 1 is probably the Minotaur Lord, although still tankable.

ThrowerYellow is done with Act 2 Legendary, now level 68 in the Gardens of Babylon.

The bosses in Act 2 are not hard, probably the hardest is the Manticore, but still tankable.

ThrowerYellow is done with Act 3 (Typhon) Legendary: now level 69 in Rhodes.

Some bosses in Act 3 are hard and need some kiting: the undead sorcerer (due to adds) and the fire bull. And of course Typhon is hard.

Thanks Medea :)

ThrowerYellow is half way through Atlantis: now level 70 in Atlantis wilderness.

The first part of Atlantis was very hard, possibly and hopefully the hardest part of the game.
