TheSchachter's Class Challenges video walkthroughs

Postby TheSchachter on Thu Dec 26, 2013 10:24 am

Hello everyone!

So, I recently made a bunch of video walkthroughs (of sorts) for some of the Gold Challenges in order to help out players who were asking for help (mainly on the Steam forums). I've been doing more and more, and I feel like help for these challenges will always be needed, so I'm making a reference topic, where I'll be linking the videos as I make them. I intend to eventually cover all of the challenges (not counting the Bronze ones, unless someone really wants a video of them).

Please note that these certainly aren't perfect playthroughs of the challenges; I make a significant amount of mistakes throughout and many of these challenges have alternate (and/or better) strategies and approaches. These videos are simply meant to showcase a successful run of each dungeon along with my thoughts on the challenges and the situations I encounter. :)

So, here are the videos:

-Warlord Gold: http://youtu.be/GUkUIYw8NAM

-Thief Gold : http://youtu.be/AEwqDlACanw

-Monk Gold: http://youtu.be/Om0nMBxvIhM

-Sorcerer Gold: http://youtu.be/7roUQ1MCqAo

-Bloodmage Silver: http://youtu.be/pnv7nTJwUrw
-Bloodmage Gold: http://youtu.be/902Pfyokk-E

-Transmuter Silver: http://youtu.be/bXzrI4I8ZHU


Please feel free to use this topic to discuss the challenges, ask questions, request that I do a certain challenge next/soon, and criticize my play! (I realize that those who are especially well suited to criticizing my play probably don't feel like watching me play through these, but if anyone wants to point out mistakes and such, it would be doubly useful for those trying to beat them). I'm hoping that this topic can become a class challenges help center of sorts! :)

Currently: Bloodmage Silver uploaded! I'll be looking at the Explorer's Guild class challenges next, probably starting with the Transmuter.

I'm really glad you're going to do Transmuter Silver! I've been having so much trouble with that one.

Love it. I totally neglect challenge runs and puzzles and get requests to do them all the time, though now that I am catching up to where I was on the Beta profile I suppose I will start doing some silvers for item unlocks.
Now I have someone to refer people to when I am asked to do them which is great. :)
FYI interestingly common request for me to do is Paladin Silver. Not something I've even tried or if I have it was a long time ago so you may want to do that one as well.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! I just uploaded Bloodmage Silver, will do the Transmuter/Crusader/Tinker Silvers next. I'm still open to requests for any of the challenges :)

*EDIT:*
Transmuter Silver done!

These videos are flat out great. I was stuck on warlord gold and BM gold for what felt like forever. Wasn't able to take them down until I saw your playthroughs. I must be a highly visual learner.

How about Crusader Silver? For some reason I just can't beat it, I never even come close.

Also Fighter gold. I beat it for the first time ever today after a year of trying and hundreds of attempts, but I always like to see how other people approach it. Either Darvin/Avatar has a video of a successful run on YouTube, but based on the lack of prep options it appears old, there's no commentary to shed light on the decision making process, and the run itself is just mind bendingly fast to me. Half the time I can't even tell what mob gets clicked on, what spell gets cast, health/mana stats, or what's in the inventory. It must be because I'm a caveman or something, but the clicking is fast and furious and I flat out can't keep up with the action.

Yeah, that's me. Sorry about the speed run. I made it because someone was complaining it was impossible without preps, hence the lack of any commentary, analysis or deliberately slow play.

I've actually got two runs of Crusader Silver recorded, but I was unhappy with the gameplay in one and the commentary in the other XD Sorry I haven't put up anything in the past few days, I've been a bit busy. Really glad these videos are helping! =D

Its still pretty impressive, because you could have had a reflex or transmute potion and you didn't need either of them. Sort of like watching guys on youtube speedrun old NES games in 13 minutes when I owned them for years without beating them once.

This isn't a class challenge, but I'd like to humbly request you make a video showing the "proper" way to best the second goatperson triple-quest. I've made it to 2-3 five times now and though I've managed to carry a few more mana potions with me, I've still came up short. I seem to get unlucky on the types of trinkets dropped by enemies on 2-1 and I'd be very curious to see if you play it any differently than me. I also end up panicking if I don't spawn either Dracul or Earthmother in 2-2.

P.S. I'm aware of how hellish doing a 3 quest video would be. Perhaps "cheat" and make three separate videos with one for each level. (that is, if you are so inclined...)

UPDATE: Since I finished Triple-Quest 2, I probably don't need this video anymore. However, others may benefit if you did. My new request is that you make a video showing how to properly play Triple-Quest 3, level 2. Thanks.
