Teebling, D2 is my favorite game behind Classic WoW. I'm watching twitch.tv/mrllamasc stream a speedrun. I haven't been playing D2 lately since I'm all-in on classic, but I play mods like Path of Diablo and Median XL on occasion.
Thanks for the compliments!
It’s about 4x as long a run as an extremely quick 1-60 (sub 4d /played) lmao. 98-99 is a FUCKING grind.
E: before I get too off topic, it was 10k+ P8 Nihlathak runs for 98-99 and you can get 100-0’d in less than a second there with the bugged vipers. He dropped me a Zod among other things before it was all said and done. ;)
Hoooly crap Jpy! I've never hit 99 in D2 outside of mods that make it much easier. I had a 98 Barb back in 1.09, but I've never dedicated to the grind past 96 other than that.

If you do one Nihlathak a minute (super easy with a sorc and revealed maps on SP) it should take 166 or so hours to do 10,000 runs.
I mean it's so repetitive that you can do it without thinking. Put on some chill music or a stream, hold down right click and press a few buttons til you're tired. The real question is what did he do with the other 130ish hours, Diablo and Baal?
Ok I’ll Bite on one more OT because I really like D2 (temp ban inc @teebling)
72-93 I did Ancient Tunnels as Blizzard
93-98 I did CS elites/Vizier/Infector only as Blizzard
98-98.x I did P8 Nihlathak as Lightning and Hell Ancients to ding 99
Nihlathak runs were constantly stressful btw. The vipers there shoot invisible clouds that are bugged and can kill you ridiculously fast, I played the entire 10k runs with finger on ESC.
I have a write up here (awesome D2 single player community): https://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads ... ss.963842/
This is my current setup for NASA 1.0: AMD FX-6100 3.3 Ghz, 8GB, GeForce GTX-1050ti. At the end of this month I'm getting a new MOBO with a Ryzen & 16GB, so NASA 2.0 will have about 66% faster cpu speed & about double the SSD speed.
We’re actually moving into the new house within a few weeks so hopefully I’ll have some improved setup shots soon!

I worked on a ship back in 2007. How the fuck you have any where near decent enough internet to be online all the time? Can you game on it?teebling wrote: ↑1 year agoHey jp I'm liking the colour scheme very much! And that big old steelseries mat. Very cool.
I'll take a pic of my set up at home when I get home. Just built a new mini-ITX build which is pretty dope and can't wait to share.
In the meantime here is my 'setup' on the ship - coding patch 1.5 on my lunch break! North of the Shetland Isles at the moment.
