Mini tournament 3

Today we are playing Ashby a Magician / Paladin who is currently trying to save the town Padus. Din has left Ashby a mortal. When he dies he really dies, so be careful. Ashby is also Unlucky and in Poverty.

NOTE: this character uses new code from patch 1.002. You must update to beta patch 1.002 or the character will not work as intended. Make sure it says version 1.002 on the opening screen of Din's Curse or the character won't work correctly (it also won't export correctly).

The goal of this tournament is to see how high of a level everyone can get this character to and of course to have fun!

I will only consider the highest level character from each person.

It will last about a week. I will post the results next Monday (June 7th), hopefully in the morning some time. I will accept any entries that are posted on this thread when I start tabulating the results. If I were you I wouldn't temp fate too much and I would post your results on Sunday or before. I live in central US for time zone purposes.

Instructions
------------
1) Download the attached zip file
2) Unzip the file into the DC chars directory which is here:

Vista/Win7 - C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\DinsCurse\User\chars
XP - C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\DinsCurse\User\chars
Mac - /Users/YOUR USER NAME/Library/Application Support/DinsCurse/User/chars

3) Start the game, choose Play, Choose Ashby, and then choose Load Existing World
4) Play the game, but be careful you are playing a hardcore character

5) When you die or it's getting close to the end of the time limit, export your character using the vbulletin export (it gets exported to the user directory, the parent directory of the one in step 2)
6) Zip up your character files for this character (we really only need the chr and wld files). These are in the directory in step 2
7) Post the export in this thread and attached your zipped character files also
8) If you still have time try again

Rules
------
1) Please no cheating
2) No mods are allowed except the unlockedModes mode
3) You should be playing at least version 1.002
4) You can play multiple times (only your highest entry will count though)
5) At least for this tournament you can start as many towns as you want

This is one of those times where the destination doesn't matter all that much, it's the journey that counts so have fun!

Fantastic with all the lessons learned on the previous two tournaments I'm really up for this one.

Good luck too all.

Hey Shadow, the text displaying character level / name / game mode options is running all the way off of the character screen.

Just wanted to let you know.

I know, since there are so many options now I might need to shorten them down to letters or something and only show the full names if you highlight it.

Default My first hardcore character

I'm kind of surprised I managed to keep him alive until level 7 on town #2. Big amorph boss crushed him in town. I forgot my "if the town is invaded run to lvl 1 of the dungeon and hide" survival plan

Lots of fun though.

When you get a rude opponent in town a trick that could work well is to attract its attention first then if you survive try attract it around town center to attract much more town people to help you kill the boss faster. Well if you die before the trick won't work.

My Ashby is level 7 too, in 3rd town, the setup is clearly more rude for now, because of the shortage of good items. Also the lack of money makes the skill management more difficult, less possibility to experiment and use each point at any time and unlearn later when needed.

Running to the town center to get help does sound like a good idea. I'm running through on a second try now. Am back to level 7, this time on town 3.

I agree its certainly different starting off unlucky & poor. It concentrates your mind on being REALLY sure about your choices. And when the RNG decides to play nice and actually give you something sweet...it's all the more awesome. I hesitate to say this, because I know if I do I'll die 5 minutes after logging into the game, but the RNG has been kind enough to grant me 2 items of the same set - a useful set at that whee. The second item dropped a level before I could use it, so I got to store it away and await finally being able to equip it!

I've never liked the magician tree a lot. I guess that means that I'll be specialising in the paladin tree mostly, but I might have a couple of magician tricks up my sleeve for crowd control etc. The problem going mainly with paladin is that they are very gear dependent and so far at lvl 6 gear has been quite hard to come by. I don't think that Ashby is going to do as well as Travis and really isn't as much fun either.

It'll be a real challenge for me to get him to lvl 20, I think...
