Intriguing....

I was thinking of my first run being somewhere around that time... and I do like a challenge for my first run through.

Would you be thinking of doing this on Nightmare? Or HC? Or just regular mode?

For Difficulty it will depend on which Variant is decided upon.

If we do a Sealed Greedy then I think it will depend on tokens opened but I don't think Nightmare would be doable but it is possible.

If we do a 5 or 10 token limit then higher difficulties are definitely possible. I can tell you 2 of us tried using only 5 tokens at Wizards on normal at GHC and I died in room 5. With the right 10 people using only 5 tokens (inlcuding TE's) I think nightmare might be fun. :evil:

So it is really up to us what we want to do. I am open to other ideas. Again my biggest requirement is it will be 'new' to us. Yes, I know it is a retro-rebuilt dungeon, but still. Not knowing what puzzles and monsters are ahead of us is what will make tokens matter more....I hope.

I would throw out lets do Nightmare with the following restrictions:

Any 3 tokens you wish (any rarity)
All the rest common

Not including TE (you can equip any TE you want of any rarity as long as it doesn't have any other in game effect).

Not all of have the commons collection you do...lol. For me that would be a 5 token challenge. 2 TE and 3 other non commons...lol.

Like I said I am game for anything if we get enough folks interested. If not I am likely just to get a random ticket.

I'm not averse to dying in the attempt.
But given my choice, I'd rather come with a pre-made character, to make it easier on the Coach.. instead of scrambling to get ourselves equipped with the 10 pack of starter tokens.

I'd definitely be interested in a Greedy 5-token Nightmare challenge (and I, like you, don't have a large bank of Commons to pull from, so I'm inclined to stick to just the 5.)

My thoughts...
1) Weapon
2) Armour
3) Cloak for saves
4) Girdle for Str boost
5) Rod of Persuasion for Rogue chest, because we may need the time for solving the puzzles.
Plus CoA and IS:SN

And if I'm playing a Ranger instead of Rogue, swap out Rod for 2nd weapon.

I am not adverse to dying (some of the best TD stories envolve a death or 10). As long as we had a glimmer of chance in succeeding.

We could limit it to 2017 C (or UC) to round out builds. A little help never hurts. Again I was suggesting 3 tokens of your choice (call it the Big 3).

Then you can add - Charm of Avarice, Ioun Stone - Silver Nugget, etc at no cost. They have no real game effect so they don't determine win/loss (saying any 5 means you could skip TE and the chance of success goes up).

I like Raven's idea. So 7 token Nightmare run (including TE tokens). So you have to make decisions on if you bring a ranged weapon. Or if you are going to double heal cleric which is 2 tokens there. Do we use a valuable token slot on Charms of Synergy?

If you two are down for this (and Acherin is free) we just need 6 other foolish folks to follow. I (and Ed too I think) can loan out CoA's and ISSN's for any that want in.

My 5 plus TE would be:

Asher's Fang
Asher's Fang
Girdle for STR
Charm Heroism for 5th level

I will leave the 5th open in case we want Charm of Synergy.

So do consumables count? I am assuming yes (so we have to avoid them).

BTW - add my friend Jim down and list him as the Cleric (me as the Monk) please.

Updated the first post for with a list and what we are doing. I have Raven and Acherin as question marks since I want them to confirm they are down for this. I will grab a full run tomorrow.


My 5 would depend on what I end up playing, but likely a level bump and relic weapon. Maybe legendary armored guarding Paladin. Maybe a cutting wizard. Maybe a druid. Whatever we feel we need I can play, just not necessarily well. :)
