Weekly Challenge Run Videos!

Postby TheSchachter on Sat Nov 23, 2013 5:15 am

Hello everyone!

Jayplaysindiegames was talking about making comparative challenge runs earlier, and so we both agreed to prepare a video for this Friday! Since the plan seems to do this regularly and to involve more people, I figure it might be worth it to start a thread for discussion, suggestions, criticism and so on!

Our first challenge is:
Hexx Ruins: Purist + Miser

Here is Jay's video:

And here is mine:

(Sorry for somewhat poor use of my chosen deity and general sleepiness!)

Let us know what you think, or if you'd like to join in!

I was actually worried that we would both be going in as assassins :p.
This was a fun challenge, and a bit of an easy one I think for me and Schachter, but definitely a good way to start the series considering that we approached the same problem VERY differently. I honestly would never have considered the paladin an option, though it seems kinda obvious now.
Anyway any suggestions for future challenges would be welcome

Well, now would probably be a good opportunity to ask around: Are there any requests for this week's challenge run? Jay, did you have anything in mind?

If anyone would like to join us in this, feel free to say so! :)

How about warmonger and faithless (so you don't both do Taurog runs :D ) in a moderate dungeon like Creeplight for example? Of course, the main difference would be in preps and items which probably isn't as interesting as gods and glyphs, but still a good concept regardless. Actually, Creeplight probably isn't the best due to how well suited the priest is to it. Perhaps Havendale Bridge?

I think sticking to hard dungeons with some limitations is a good idea. Apart from Avatar's suggestion I would like to see Hexx Ruins Purist and miser not using Assassin, Paladin or any of the special classes. Don't know if that's a challenge, so add vicious token if you think it is too easy.

I like the idea of hard dungeons plus limitations, though since we already did Hex ruins I doubt we'll go back there for awhile.
My next suggestion would be something along the lines of "Naga City, must be lvl 1 going down to the arena" but I don't know if that is possible. I wouldn't mind giving it a try though. I think my class/race of choice would have to be Orc Warlord, but that certainly wouldn't be part of the restriction.
